The “Real World” Just Isn’t The Same

I’ve been hearing a lot about ‘The Real World: DC’ over the past few months. Real World XXIII: Washington DC – MTV Shows Most of it has been pretty negative. Honestly, all I can really think is that I’m pretty apathetic about it. It’s almost ‘too late’ in a sense. Hell, I haven’t watched MTv […]

Today, Angela was on Boing Boing and she came across an article referencing the 1987 Crystal Light National Aerobic Championship: [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SeMJOPlK-0E[/youtube] Oy.

I Think Marissa Miller Is HOT But…

Marissa Miller is 8 years younger than me. Whereas I got to see Star Wars when it first came out she was probably still getting used to solid food. Another difference? She’s a wildly successful model who has been on the cover of Sports Illustrated’s swimsuit issues and a Victoria’s Secret Angel. Me? I’m crabby […]

My Admiration of Mike Rowe

I like Mike Rowe a lot. No, not in some kind of man crush kind of way, but more along the lines that his television personality seems to be the same way that he is in real life. His television show, Dirty Jobs on the Discovery Channel, is in its 5th season and has reached […]

The Fun House

Oh, that Hugh Laurie… [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WAE5z8Ct56g&fmt=18[/youtube] …he makes me laugh in so many ways. It is somewhat reminiscent of the Ministry of Silly Walks [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9ZlBUglE6Hc[/youtube] Anywho, Hugh Laurie and Stephen Fry always manage to fascinate me. If it wasn’t for Jeeves & Wooster then it was the numerous other material that they’ve produced over the years. […]

Last Cosplay Post of the Day or Why NAFTA Works

You really don’t hear about cosplayers outside of either Japan or the United States.

Angela and I briefly discussed how difficult it must be to design something like that. I kept […]

When Children’s Shows Oog You Out

I like cartoons. Sure, I’m all happy to see anime or the stuff that’s ginned up in Hollywood. Much of it all comes down to the base notion that I really ejoy watching children’s programming, not just when I was a kid but also as I’ve grown into a relatively well adjusted adult. And then […]
