I Made This Because I’m Lame

Wednesday, July 31st, 2013

  ONLY 190 MORE DAYS TILL THE WINTER OLYMPICS, BITCHES! Cue the appropriate theme music.

Why are you doing this to us?

Thursday, March 7th, 2013

Ooooohhhhhhhhh NOOoooooooooooooooooooooooooo. Just in time to capitalize upon the discovery of Richard III’s remains (and the popularity of Game of Thrones, because hey, it’s old-timey people in doublets and armour so it’s all the same to the viewing public, amIright?) comes a BBC/Starz (STARZ?!?! REALLY? Was The CW all booked up?!) miniseries about the Wars […]

X Games 2013 Recap

Monday, January 28th, 2013

So I shouldn’t quit my day job and become a bookie, my prediction was wrong.  Though Shaun was trying his damndest and landing triple-corks at slope-style practice, he was not able to transform that into a win in the finals.  In fact, he came in 5th and fell pretty embarrassingly twice.  (Though for what it’s […]

X Games Pep Rally 2013

Thursday, January 24th, 2013

I don’t know what my feelings are doing with this picture, I really don’t. Anyway, it’s that time of year again that no one cares about but me: Winter X Games!  But I care enough for all three of you readers. X Games is extra important this year, because we’re leading up to Winter Olympics […]

Point/Counter Point

Tuesday, December 18th, 2012

So this happened yesterday. And at first I was all…. But in all seriousness, I’m not surprised.  I think that Shaun has been preparing us (and himself) for this for a while now by wearing his hair back and up a LOT lately.  So we’re all sort of visually used to it.  Also, he seems […]

Nanoo-NanooOOooh!

Friday, October 12th, 2012

Cumberbatch decided to take on all the bitches who say that he looks like an alien by sitting in a Mork From Ork chair and looking hot.  (As if looking like an alien is a bad thing!  Hmpf!  Commoners.)  

Happy Benedict Cumberbirthday!!

Scarves, tea, and SlashArt for all!!

Drive-By Hotting: Copyright Infringement Edition

Wednesday, July 18th, 2012

Hey now! I’m gonna let this slide for once, just because it’s Joe.  But that’s the only warning that GQ is going to get.

Drive-By Drive-Bying

Friday, June 29th, 2012

For your Friday pleasure, six minutes of pure beauty.  Oh, Michael Mann…. *sigh* Game of Thrones? Meh.  The Wire? Whatevs.  This is epic tv-making.  I weep for bygone times.  It’s like, once there were colors in the world, and ever since 1990, everything turned to sepia.

Brain Scan: 1988

Wednesday, June 13th, 2012

Yesterday we watched a clip from the Human Rights Now tour.  Throughout 1988/89, I watched my copy like a 3 year-old watches Dora The Explorer.  But there were other concerts that I owned on VHS that got the same treatment, watching them over and over and OVER, usually on weekends.  (We only had one TV […]

As those crazy Tumblr kids like to say…

Tuesday, June 12th, 2012

ALL THE FEELS!  ALL of them!! Oh my gawd, look what I unearthed on YouTube:  The 1988 Amnesty International Human Rights Now concert tour!!  Sweet Jeebus, if you weren’t there in the late 80′s you just don’t know.  This event was my life’s blood!  I had it on VHS and I watched it so many […]

Squee: The Sequel

Tuesday, May 8th, 2012

There’s something to be said for obsessing over obscure bands/people/interests.  Access is much easier to attain. First of all, the show was really, really great.  Any and all negatives (cheesy lighting, wonky acoustics, TOTAL LACK OF AIR CIRCULATION) were the fault of the venue, not the band. Before the start, BW ran into JM in […]

Obsession du Jour

Saturday, May 5th, 2012

  I am the opposite of a Tedious Music Prick;  I’m pretty much happy to listen to the same 50 or so albums from the 50′s – 80′s over and over again for the rest of my life.  I don’t go seeking out new music, and I rarely get all excited and passionate about bands.  […]

Drive-By Hotting

Wednesday, April 25th, 2012

Because I’m tired of looking at Hitler. I love it so much how Gary is like Benny’s mentor in Non-Classic, Charisma-Based, Vaguely Unsettling, Yet Dead Sexy British Hotness.  Good choice, Benny.  Gary is like, the Grand Master of that.  He should live in a temple on a mountaintop in the Himalayas.

Thieving

No excuses, just blatantly, flat-out stealing and reposting this with no further content because it’s awesome and doesn’t need any.

The Guys of March

Friday, March 30th, 2012

If you’ve slogged along with this blog for long enough, you know that every year I make a big deal out of celebrating my two husbands’ shared birthday on March 31. But this year is a little different, as BW is turning 40!  So I am gonna devote tomorrow’s blog entirely to him, but of […]

Finally

An excuse to use some of the animated GIFs I’ve been hoarding. There, I feel much better now.

X Games Leopard-printed Wrap Up

Tuesday, January 31st, 2012

Clearly, the pep rally worked. Shaun White not only won the Superpipe at the X-Games, he won it twice.  While wearing leopard-print 80′s glam metal pants, motherfuckers!  Lemme ‘splain.  First he threw down a run that scored a 97.8.  He won with that score by a big margin.  But then, he takes his second run […]

X Games Pep Rally — Day 3

Sunday, January 29th, 2012

For awhile there, things were looking scary.  Shaun wanted to get up to speed on the slopestyle course, and he was in CO practicing for weeks.  Then on his final day of practice, he messed up his ankle and bailed on Friday’s slop competition.    I was afraid he would compete in today’s halfpipe, but […]

X Games Pep Rally – Day 2

Friday, January 27th, 2012

Everybody is turning out for the X Games 2012 Pep Rally! Shaun, we salute you with the ultimate hairmetal fangirl anthem!  Because you, sir, deserve it! Now watch this video while I scribble these lyrics down in orange gel pen on my 80-page, college ruled, spiral-bound notebook. I see your face every time I dream […]
