Armchair Quarterback

Friday, August 29th, 2008

A break from the Golden Age hotties for a minute to bring you some fresh-baked hotness. This here is one Taylor Kitsch.  He appears on the teetering-on-the-edge-of-cancellation NBC drama Friday Night Lights.  I kept hearing amazing stuff about the show, so BW and I have been watching the first season on DVD.  And you know […]

Welcome to the 70′s

Wednesday, August 27th, 2008

Long story, but I’ve been doing a project for work lately for which I need some “vintage” photos.  Trying to avoid copyright fees and issues, I asked my mom if I could borrow whatever old photo albums she had.  And since I’m scanning pictures anyway, I decided to make a little gallery out of some […]

I don’t know about you, but for me, 4:00am is like a cursed time…a witching hour.  I’m going through one of my insomniac phases this week; haven’t really slept for more than 3 or 4 hours per night since Wed.  The main problem is that I can’t fall asleep, but the other component is that […]

Home, Dream Home 8

Monday, August 25th, 2008

Haven’t done this little exercise in suffering for a while, but I’ve been inspired by constantly glancing over at my ‘ForecastFox’ app that  keeps telling me that it is 59 degrees and party sunny in Aberdeenshire and basically has been all summer.  So, bring on the misery!  Check out this house…too expensive by about $600k, […]

Wish you were here

You know, PGH has a rep for being a place where it is hardly ever sunny.  I call Bullshit on that!  The people who complain abut the clouds do it in the winter when, sure, we often have many cloudy days in a row.  However, these same people choose to ignore stretches of weather like […]

Delicate sound of Thunder

Wednesday, August 20th, 2008

So I believe I mentioned that I saw Tropic Thunder over the weekend.  I don’t feel like writing up a long, drawn-out review, so consider this a ‘mini’ review.  If you care to read a proper review, check out the one at Pajiba…I pretty much agree with it 100%. In short, I really, really liked […]

Such was my weekend.  Did a bunch of random pleasant stuff.  Went to my cousin’s new house (obligatory whine of envy: waahhh, it’s on 150 rural acres! waaahhhh, everybody has a bigger house than me! waahhhh!) for a birthday party, rode around on the motorcycle, saw Tropic Thunder (more on that later if I feel […]

So how can we top the hotness of last week’s Mitchum-fest?  There’s only one way that I know of. Warning:  The following is a tactical nuke strike of hotness.  It may not be safe for work.  In fact, you really don’t want to be at work, or have anything else planned for the rest of […]

Good friends are magic

“Do not meddle in the affairs of wizards, for they are subtle and quick to anger.” – J.R.R.T. Happy 14th birthday to my subtle best pal, Mr. Gandalf!  Catnip cupcakes for one and all.

A taste of idyllic

Tuesday, August 12th, 2008

That was our weather in PGH this weekend!  Chilly mornings brightening to crisp 70-ish afternoons…perfect!  I’d say that it was like a glimpse of fall, but we don’t generally ever GET a true, nice fall here.  We get 80+ ass up through the end of October, then in November it goes to 50 degrees and […]

Time for a new feature here at the Jungle.  In the spirit of the Drive-By Hottings, but in the RedHotBlackWhite series I’m going to go out of my way to try to find you snippets of the classic hotties of bygone days.  Not only do I want to share my love for these icons with […]

The Chinese say that 8-8-08 will be the luckiest day ever, numerology-wise.  But 8-7-87 obviously also had some magic mojo going on. Let’s give it up for everybody’s favorite Nova Scotian! Sid turns 21 today.  Not sure if that makes me feel more or less like a skeezy old pervert.

Today is Robert Mitchum’s birthday!  Ahhhhh…..Bobby the Mitch…always and forever putting the “MMMmmmmmmmMMMmmMmmmm” in “Mmmmmitchum.” I was nosing around at YouTube hoping to find some excerpts from Bobby’s films to try and share his greatness with you.  I found a couple, but then I found the piece below.  Somebody made a music video with some […]

I’m sure that you’ve all heard by now about poor Morgan Freeman being in a serious car crash.  They say he’s doing better and has just suffered several broken bones.  But still…wtf is going on with all of these brilliant people from Batman? Heathbaby dies.  Christian gets tossed into the slammer and has his good […]

What you’ve all been waiting for….pics from Cousin R’s wedding. (when you’re viewing them, I recommend clicking the ‘full size’ link at the top of the pics because some of them are pretty blurry otherwise.) Anyway, it all came off without a hitch.  The Oreos didn’t melt (although it was humid), the decorations looked nice, […]

The birthday bastard

Sunday, August 3rd, 2008

Y’all didn’t think I’d miss Hetfield’s birthday, did ya? I’ll never understand why I bother, other than that hope and love are both harder to kill than cockroaches.

It’s a nice day for a white wedding

Friday, August 1st, 2008

OMG, today is finally it!  Cousin R’s wedding!  All the cookie-making and decoration-crafting will see its fruition!  (And tomorrow I will have my freezer space back! Oh happy day! ) Now if we could actually have a nice day…I am so worried we’ll have nasty temps with the usual equatorial humidity and that all of […]
