I have been obsessed with song-talking lately. I don’t think “song-talking” is an actual phrase, but I don’t know what else to call it…so I just made something up. Song-talking is an act where one will attempt to sneak random song lyrics into normal conversation (which means little to no singing). The lyrics should fit into the conversation, so that others don’t notice right away. Once you have managed to get a couple lines in unnoticed, its completely acceptable(and encouraged) to break into song to reveal your true intentions…and brag about your success.

Instead of trying to explain further, I will let Turk from Scrubs provide a perfect example…

Full Recovery!

October 17, 2007

 

 

One of the funnier SNL skits I have seen as of late. Not allot of explanation needed, it pretty much stands on its own.

In my opinion (I know you didn’t ask, but your getting it anyway) SNL has been pretty weak for the past several years. Although I do like the guy in the video (Andy Samberg), he can be really hit or miss. I guess its too much to expect to get another Will Ferrell.

Watch Instantly

October 3, 2007

I don’t how many of you have a subscription to Netflix, but I just recently started taking advantage of their “Watch Instantly” feature which allows you to watch selections from your queue right on your computer. I wasn’t too interested in this when it first rolled out, as distribution rights seem to limit what you are able to “watch instantly”.

This changed when I noticed that they offer a good number of television series through this service. My friends have been hassling me lately for not watching Heroes. I told them that I don’t have a real interest in watching the second season (which recently stared), as I had not seen any of the first. However, since I have stumbled across this feature…I have been on a Heroes marathon, trying to catch myself up to speed on the series. They even have previously aired episodes of season 2 available, which means that I can catch up without waiting for a season to end.

I would sit here and go on about it some more, but I have some Heroes to watch.

MMA

September 8, 2007

Tonight Spike TV will be airing UFC 75 free of charge, as opposed to the typical PPV offering. I’m posting about this (with late notice) because it is a great chance to get into the sport of MMA, if you are not already. MMA (UFC specifically) still carries a pretty bad reputation of two guys closing their eyes and swinging their fists until the other is either unconscious or dead. Once you get into the sport, you realize that like any sport…it takes a great amount of skill and dedication. Don’t get me wrong, I still enjoy people getting kicked in the head…but the more technical fights are just as fun to watch. If you can’t catch tonight’s free show, there is also another free fight card on September 19th.

Forecast is Sunny

August 4, 2007

I was watching TV the other night, and was lucky enough to catch a teaser for my favorite show…It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia. As if that is not enough, seasons 1 & 2 are coming to DVD as well. Awesome.

“I See Okinawa”

August 2, 2007

Although I don’t care for the beer, the Bud Light “Real Men of Genius” commercials always crack me up. The rock front-man’s random interjections are always brilliant (see title of this post). I could sit here all day and listen to these.

The complete “Real Men of Genius” collection.

Swimming With Sharks

July 29, 2007

If you are anything like me, you love watching Shark Week on the Discovery channel. Shark Week kicks off tomorrow with Ocean of Fear, which is the story of what happened to the crew of the USS Indianapolis when their ship went down.

Interesting that this is also the 20th year of Shark Week, I had no idea it had been going on for so long. In addition to Ocean of Fear, it looks like they have a ton of other good shark-eat-man programs to watch. I remember last year they had the story of a man who punched the shark in the nose, and then swam to shore…that man, is my hero.
