Sailor Mook

June 27, 2010

What do you do with a drunken sailor … what do you do with a drunken sailor … what do you do with a drunken sailor early in the morning? 

Seriously, I really need to know as soon as possible. My cousin Sean is right in the middle of a 72-hour shore leave – and a 48-hour bender.

GLANCE A LOT LINKS

June 25, 2010

Some call them time wasters. Others call them a good reason to procrastinate for another hour or so.  And, no, those aren’t the same thing.  

LOST may be over – hang on … sniff … need a moment – but people still obsess.  Like some cartographer who made his own map of the island.  Very nice.  Obsess a little longer, my friend.  

Steve Martin has been a standup comedian, an author, a Top 40 hitmaker, a wild ‘n’ crazy guy, a serious actor and a banjo playin’ fool.  It is the latter which proves he’s still a funny, funny man because when he travels around playing his instrument he demands things a certain way.  Check out STEVE MARTIN’S LEAKED TOUR RIDER.   And forgive him for The Pink Panther.

The VCR may have given way to the DVR but they are still the coolest, most awesome devices ever created.  If you believe their press.  See 10 REASONS WHY VCRS ARE INCREDIBLE (ACCORDING TO OLD VCR ADVERTISEMENTS).  

Woman’s Day – wait, what? – uh, yeah, Woman’s Day presents 10 CONTROVERSIAL BILLBOARDS.  Really?  Woman’s Day?

Finally, MY FOOD LOOKS FUNNY.  Tastes great but looks funny.  Yeah, just sayin’.

DVR Alert, Meatbag!

June 24, 2010

Good news, everyone!  Matt Groening’s animated sci fi comedy FUTURAMA is back, baby!  For my money, it’s the superior Matt Groening animated series.  That’s heresy to some; gospel to others.  Regardless, it’s amazingly hip and funny and all that good stuff that makes a series return years after FOX cancels it.  New episodes air tonight on Comedy Central

Inform the men.

Astrologeez

June 24, 2010

If you were born today, your Zodiac sign is Cancer (June 21st thru July 22nd). 

Man, talk about bad omens!  What kind of astrological sign is that to saddle a body with?  You might as well say you were born under the sign of Tumor or Psittacosis or Lou Gehrig’s Disease

Bloody hell!  I’d rather be one of those creepy Moon Children.
