July 2009

there were barely any seats left but I made it onto the bandwagon for this. wish i’d have gotten on sooner ’cause this album is “the jam” as they say.



Not sure how I feel about this; I love Nirvana, but hate Rick-Rolling. Anyway, just watch this and judge for yourself.

If you’ve never seen The Young One’s you’re missing out. Seriously one of the best TV shows i’ve ever had the pleasure of watching.

That said, I made a discovery today that I was previously unaware of. Watch this clip from the episode entitled “Bambi” and see if you can guess who the actor portraying contestant ‘Lord Monty’ on the Oxbridge team is:

Yup…that’s right:
dr_house_01A young Dr. Gregory House (or Hugh Laurie if you want to refer to him by his Government Name)

Surely by now, if you follow sports and/or read sports blogs you’ve probably heard about the infamous and sketchy “Is it or isn’t it?” video of a woman who may or may not be ESPN Sideline Goddess Erin Andrews kickin it around her hotel room in her birthday suit.

Yesterday the mystery was, um, solved.

LOS ANGELES, July 17 /PRNewswire/ — With respect to recent Internet postings of Erin Andrews, she has authorized her attorney, Marshall B. Grossman of Bingham McCutchen LLP, to issue the following statement:

“While alone in the privacy of her hotel room, Erin Andrews was surreptitiously videotaped without her knowledge or consent. She was the victim of a crime and is taking action to protect herself and help ensure that others are not similarly violated in the future. Although the perpetrator or perpetrators of this criminal act have not yet been identified, when they are identified she intends to bring both civil and criminal charges against them and against anyone who has published the material. We request respect of Erin’s privacy at this time, while she and her representatives are working with the authorities.”

-Press Release

Well now that we’ve resolved that lets get back to…uhhh….naked Erin Andrews!!?!?!? What were we talking about again???

Seriously though, this is some sketchy b.s. of the highest order. Here’s hoping whoever shot the video is prosecuted to the fullest.

And, no, i’m NOT going to post the video or the still frames that are readily available for YOU to find on YOUR OWN via Google. You think I want Disney/ABC/ESPN lawyers climbing up MY ass???? HELL NO!

the last TRUE news man is gone…
cronkiteSean McManus, current President of CBS News (where Walter Cronkite RULED for decades) said it best:

“There probably will never be anybody who has the presence and the stature and the importance that Walter Cronkite had in this country,” Mr. McManus said in a telephone interview, recalling what he told his children.

“I tried to explain to them that most people in America expected to get both good and bad news from one man, and that was Walter Cronkite,” he said. “That will never be duplicated again,” because of the fragmentation of the media.”
-New York Times

To really get an idea of the power of Cronkite, for the way he had with words and the ability to deliver them you really need look no further than the way he handled a breaking and developing story of national importance in the the Fall of 1963;

Yeah, lets see the talking heads in the 24 hour news cycle have that kind of powerful and meaningful delivery even ONCE in their life.

Sad day. To paraphrase the words of an equally legendary news man; Goodnight, and, good luck Mr Cronkite.

I’d heard about this video…i’d heard about this song…but until today i’d never broken down and watched it.

My lord.

If you can make it to the 2:00 minute mark  you will ABSOLUTELY understand why shit like T-Pain is the worst thing to ever happen to music. Seriously.

Get ready to laugh your ass off at the fail and suck in this…
