I Love the 80′s Drive-By Hotting: The Videos

Friday, June 29th, 2007

Because there is absolutely no reason why a person can’t be both a Metallica fan AND a Winger fan! Where’s the conflict?? And the Kipster is sooo hot. Love his pirouettes. Rock on, Kip. I love all Winger videos, but I chose this one because I knew it would probably cheese off Whistler. HehHeh. Happy […]

You can check out anytime you like, but you can never leave

In honor of Johnny Cusack’s birthday today, I thought I’d review his new movie 1408. But it’s really hard to review a horror movie, for some reason. I’m usually so long-winded about movies, but I can’t think of anything to say. Hrmm…1408 is about one night spent in a haunted hotel room. Poor Johnny, he […]

Home, Dream Home 4

Tuesday, June 26th, 2007

Time for a change of scenery. Let’s scoot over the Atlantic from Scotland to beautiful Toronto, Canada! There was actually a specific apartment/condo building I was looking for, that I always say I want to live in. It’s on Front St., across from Starbucks one block from St. Lawrence Market, and there is a fabulous […]

Ok, I’ve lived in my new house for one year; time to bitch about a neighbor. My next-door neighbors are Russo-phobes. No, not people who are afraid of Russians, but rather Russians who are afraid of everything. They have many, many annoying traits that I could comment on, but today I will just kvetch about […]

Hot Russell is Back!

Friday, June 22nd, 2007

We interrupt our usual Friday trip to the 80′s to bring you this shocking news: there are movies to look forward to in 2007!! Amazing, I know. Trailers have recently surfaced for two Russell Crowe flicks dues out this fall: American Gangster and 3:10 to Yuma. I really think Russ is a great actor, though […]

Suck it up, Jessica Biel

Thursday, June 21st, 2007

Every so often (well, more often than I care to think about) in Hollywood an actress comes along who is known less for her movie parts and more for her body parts. This year it’s Jessica Biel and her “shelf ass” (phrase trademarked by LaineyGossip.) In the mid-1940′s to 50′s, it was Jane Russell and […]

Suck it up, Brad Pitt

Wednesday, June 20th, 2007

Today is Errol Flynn’s birthday, which kicks off a double-header of Hotness that will continue with tomorrow’s featured bday star! Errol is not one of my favorite old Hollywood stars, not by a longshot. And he was certainly nobody’s idea of a good actor. But he filled an important, time-honored niche: that of the guy […]

THAT was easy

You Are 0% Redneck I’ll slap you so hard, your clothes will be outta style.You ain’t no redneck – you’re all Yankee! How Redneck Are You?

Virtue is its own Reward…

but bribery helps as well. Before we left on vacation in April, I decided that if I succeeded in getting on the plane without losing my shit, I was going to treat myself to a reward.

WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOYEEEEEEEEAAAAAAARRRRRHHHHHHGGGGGGGGGG!! Damn, I wish I could be in that mosh pit! Is that wrong for a 34 yr.-old woman to say? Anyway, ‘tallica at their peak. Gawd, I love those guys. Look at James…So. Flippin. Hot! And Jason rocking his Elvis n’ Johnny Cash t-shirt, is he not the coolest? It’s all so perfect. *sniffle* […]

Home, Dream Home 3

Wednesday, June 13th, 2007

For the wannabe urban Aberdeener in me, I present: This adorable place is located in downtown ABD, just minutes’ walk from the main shopping street. It’s the whole top floor of the building, so no annoying neighbors above, and the bottom floor is a shop of some kind so no annoying neighbors on that […]

There’s the windup…annnnnnd here’s the pitch!

Tuesday, June 12th, 2007

I gently reminded my boss yesterday about finishing up the paperwork for my reappointment and raise, and he got it done and submitted it to the proper Human Resources Pod Person, so now it is official! W00t!  Only bad thing is that the way our pay periods and my official renewal date are set up, […]

I Love the 80′s Drive-By Hotting: The Videos

Friday, June 8th, 2007

Remember when this puppy was on MTV Headbangers’ Ball every 5 minutes? (Not that there was anything wrong with that!) Remember when there WAS a Headbangers’ Ball?? Remember when there were headbangers??? Remember when hard rock and metal music actually, like, existed and people listened to it ?!?! Oh hell, I’m depressing myself. Not to […]

Back in black

Thursday, June 7th, 2007

You all might remember my dismay when Vanilla Coke (and particularly Diet Vanilla Coke) was discontinued. Well, the people have spoken and Almighty E has smiled down upon us, because Diet Vanilla Coke is back!! It has been reincarnated as Vanilla Coke Zero, but that’s irrelevant. It has returned! And there was much rejoicing! I […]

Go Me!

Tuesday, June 5th, 2007

Gosh, I feel all empowered and Oprah-ish (or is it Oprahy? Oprahtic?)  Anyhoo, maybe it was the guidance of Rosalind Russell, but yesterday I asked for a raise and got one! W00t! At least, I got my boss to agree to one in principle.  I gently reminded him how I’ve been managing the entire conversion […]

My Girl Rosalind

Monday, June 4th, 2007

Oh, Rosalind Russell, how I do love thee! She spent the 1930′s playing fragile upper-class ladies as in China Seas in which Gable is attracted to Roz’s high-born gentility, but in the end what he really wants is to get down-n-dirty with Jean Harlow. Or Night Must Fall, where she plays an upper-crust lady’s repressed […]

“Bad” is my very very favorite U2 song, and this is a beautiful, beautiful performance of it from 1986. Bono looks like an angel in this clip, an angel from GAWD. And so for that we gotta say, ‘Thank you, Elvis, for giving us Bono.’ And now enjoy. Happy Friday greetings from Whistler’s house!
