I Love the 80′s Drive-By Hotting: Wayfarer Edition

Friday, June 30th, 2006

Five more words: Open Season on Colin Farrell! Some people just don’t go see a movie if they don’t like the cast. Feh! Those people are normal. Me, I declare a Jihad.

I Can’t Tell You How Happy This Makes Me

Signs of Life

Wednesday, June 28th, 2006

Just quickly wanted to check in and say “We’re in.”  Bruised and battered, and suffering from sleep deprivation, but we’re in.  We spent our first night here Sunday.  The movers sucked.  (or at least, that company did. Don Farr movers…do not use em!!)  They were so slow, surly, and I believe mentally challenged.  We feel […]

I Love the 80′s Drive-By Hotting: Tiger Beat Edition

Friday, June 23rd, 2006

This morning we’re off to sell our old house, and then the true Moving Hell shall begin. I have no idea when the computers will be set up and functional in the new space, no idea when I’ll even be motivated to get online, so basically I’ll see ya when I see ya. In the […]

Verizon Sucks!

Thursday, June 22nd, 2006

I called them about three weeks ago to have my service transferred, and they also told me what my new phone number would be.  The bint operator told me the WRONG number!  What she told me was off by ONE LOUSY DIGIT from what my new number actually is!!  And I know it was her […]

Closing Time

Wednesday, June 21st, 2006

BW and I are closing on the new place today.  Eep!  Then straight afterwards we’ll begin hauling stuff over there and cleaning a little.  Seems silly that I had to wrap all my stuff in bubble wrap and I’ll have to unwrap it all again just to carry it 4 or 5 miles but, them’s […]

My-O-Mayan

Tuesday, June 20th, 2006

I don’t usually buy ice cream from the grocery store; I prefer to go out to get it, that way it’s not sitting in my house trying to get me to eat it. But then I spied an ad for a new Haagen-Dazs flavor called “Mayan Chocolate” that incorporates chocolate + cinnamon. As Loupy knows, […]

Big Ticket

Monday, June 19th, 2006

BW and I spent a good chunk of the weekend shopping for new appliances for our new place. Since the house we’re buying doesn’t have some of the features I want, we’re trying to make up for it by getting high-end goodies to fill it with. The kitchen is a skinny galley-style, so I wanted […]

Five words: Because Colin Farrell is Fugly.

Roethlisberger Round-Up

Thursday, June 15th, 2006

Our LIVE! TEAM! COVERAGE! continues with a quick snatch-n-grab of the latest goings-on in the continuing drama of FratBoy Douche! (Thanks for the new nickname, GB.) – A few of the stupidest stories I’ve seen lately: WTAE did an earth-shatttering expose on just how #7′s motorcycle got it’s weird Japanese name. (Hint: Because it’s from […]

Fire in the Disco!

Wednesday, June 14th, 2006

Today I’m here to pimp one of my favorite bands, Electric Six! Because they rawk! And they have a new album out! (Well, it came out in the UK in 2005, but I just found out about it because they don’t even have a recording contract in the US…even though they’re from Detroit. Chalk up […]

Oh the Humanity! : QB Edition

Tuesday, June 13th, 2006

Scenes from a Post-Roethlisberger-Accident World. – We’ve hit the big time! The Accident made the front page of the USA Today! – This morning, a man at Starbucks was reading a Roethlisberger-bashing editorial (that alas, I cannot find online) aloud to his wife and any passerby in earshot. – Of the local papers, the hands-down […]

Football Player Injured, World Ceases Spinning!

Monday, June 12th, 2006

I was gonna post about this even before the ever-watchful newshound Gutterboy jumped on it, but… Pittsburgh’s own drunken frat-boy star quarterback Ben “Cock Sucker” Roethlisberger was in an ACCIDENT today!!! He was riding his ugly crotch-rocket downtown and was struck by one of PGH’s legion of little old lady bad drivers. I assume a […]

Oh fabulous…

Friday, June 9th, 2006

Someone has equipped Crack Monkey with firecrackers. The little ones that just go ‘SNAP!’, don’t make any pretty lights, and serve no purpose other than to make an annoying noise. How utterly appropriate.

Something Stupid

Friday, June 9th, 2006

..for a Friday. Found this among SomethingAwful.com’s collection of fake movie posters. You can click here to read its corresponding fake IMDB entry, which is really funny if you know anything about Sharpe movies.

Not Worth the Wait

Thursday, June 8th, 2006

After years of my kvetching about it, they have finally put white chocolate M&Ms on the market. I thought they should have done it last year, when they did the Star Wars tie-in and had the ‘Dark Side’ dark chocolate M&Ms, it stands to reason that the ‘Light Side’ should have been white chocolate. But […]

Plague and pestilence

Wednesday, June 7th, 2006

Well, we ended up NOT seeing The Omen last night after all. I read one too many bad reviews. You know that a movie must suck if even Harry K. from “Ain’t It Cool News” hates it; that wanker usually loves all manner of shit. Maybe I’ll rent the dvd….maybe. So even if Satan wasn’t […]

Hail Satan, If You Please

Tuesday, June 6th, 2006

So, is anyone going to do anything special to celebrate today’s special date? Perform a Black Mass? Sacrifice a newborn? Bake a cake? Listen to Norwegian death metal? Other than wearing Satanic t-shirts, I think all we’ll be doing is going out to catch The Omen remake. Yes, I probably ought to just stay home […]

More Well Wishes

Monday, June 5th, 2006

Good thoughts out to my close friend Cheri who is having surgery this morning to remove a weird mystery growth from behind her nasal passages. It’s supposed to be a fairly quick, outpatient proceedure, so let’s hope it is and all goes smoothly. May the blessing of Elvis be upon you! Meanwhile, here is something […]

ShutUp Already, Damn!

Friday, June 2nd, 2006

Yup, I’m such a Prince fan, I even know those old obscure B-sides. Anyway, I’m feeling rather like Gay Edna today, because I think all the house stuff is finally cleared up. I don’t think we’ve convinced the Chinese people who we’re buying the house from that asbestos is a Bad Thing, but we’ve at […]
