80′s Anthropology

Monday, February 28th, 2011

Musically, I live in the past and I don’t mind admitting it.  I live and breathe 80′s music.  But sadly, of course, 80′s music is finite.  At some point, you will have heard all there is to hear. Which is why I get so happy whenever I “discover” 80′s bands that I’d never heard back […]

You know what let’s do today?

Ladies and gentlemen, I’ve made an Alex Pettyfer wallpaper for you.  You’re welcome. You know who this guy brings to mind for me?  The Vampire Lestat.  If you know me, you know that is not a statement I’d EVER make lightly.

Sid Needs a Winger

Wednesday, February 23rd, 2011

I haven’t even been following hockey since Sid’s been out.  Only linking to this story as an excuse to run this picture again. In James Neal, has Ray Shero found his winger for Sidney Crosby? So has Ray Shero finally found a guy that can be consistently productive next to Sidney Crosby? Neal’s posted 20-plus […]

Your powers are feeble compared to that of…. I don’t usually like pre-flavored coffees for two reasons: 1. whatever the “flavor”is, they always tend to taste very, very artificial. 2. they’re made from the worst, cheapest, nastiest coffee…thinking that the flavor will mask that fact. That’s why I’ve been very impressed with the new Starbucks […]

Make your own milk carton

So lately I’ve been spending a lot of time wondering whatever has become of some of my ultra-favorite actors. Have you seen them? If so, please dial my toll-free hotline 1-888-MIA-HOTZ. 1. Diego Luna.  Dieguito!!  Donde esta?! 2. Tim Roth.  Last seen in some dumb tv crime procedural. 3. Clive Owen 4. Richard E. Grant. […]

Sanity Saving

Monday, February 14th, 2011

I don’t get many breaks here on “Bail out the Titanic with a Dixie Cup” duty, but there are a few things that have been my LeoDiCaprio Lifeboat during this time. This sublimely fantastic Black Keys video. The Honey Badger.  Because Honey Badger don’t give a SHIT! Making fangirly wallpapers.  Yeah, yeah, whatever…blow me.

“This is old-time hockey.”

Sunday, February 13th, 2011

Well you know what?  FUCK old-time hockey. 361 fighting penalty minutes. In a 60-minute game. So, anybody out there still want to argue about the noble, time-honored tradition of hockey fights?  How they are an integral part of the game?  How they are a legitimate strategem?  How they are needed for morale?  Watch the three […]

Ewan McGregor on a rock on a beach.  That is all.  You’re welcome.

Cure for cancer can’t be far behind

Wednesday, February 9th, 2011

It all started in Washington, DC.  There’s a little Asian-y lunch place near the Nat’l Archives called Teaism that sells these Salty Oats Cookies that verge on the obscene, they are so good.  Boy Wonder and I were having serious talks about taking the Megabus to DC (only $8 round-trip!) just to buy some cookies […]

Senile Ramblings

Tuesday, February 8th, 2011

For the “These kids today!” files. These kids today, I don’t know whether I feel pity or contempt, what with their emo and their chaste sparkly vampires. This was brought on by a recent trip to the school/office supplies aisle at Target (I needed some college-rule paper.) Such a boring selection of notebook/folder styles! Fake […]

“The fact that many people on this blog are willing to try to find reasons why the Steelers lost, rather than recognizing why Green Bay won, and congratulating them, is why the Steeler Nation is hated around the NFL…” –random PG sports blog commentator, and speaker of The Truth!!

Vanity Fair “Hollywood issue” Edition Now that’s how you start a weekend.

Help us, Obi-Wan Kenobi. You’re our only hope.

Wednesday, February 2nd, 2011

wait..wait..what…is…this….? Is it…no, it can’t be!  A…a….trailer? For a movie? That looks goddamn good and I desperately want to see it and it has good actors and looks touching-but-not-mawkish and Ewan is talking to a dog and wearing a long coat and Christopher Plummer is at a disco and Ewan, OMG Ewan?!? This flick will […]

Crimson flare from a raging sun…

Tuesday, February 1st, 2011

This story just gets better every day.  See those sexy hot pants up there?  Turns out they are from Shaun’s own White Collection for Burton…the women’s line! MAD props!! That’s as glam as it gets.  Deserves another tribute song. Who knew Rob Halford was so prescient?? Black as night, faster than a shadow Crimson flare […]
