Random Thoughts For a Fever and Wolf Blitzer Friday February 22, 2008

Since Tuesday morning at oh, say about 11:00am, I have been incapacitated with a delirious fever. One of those delirious fevers where you sleep most of the day, but you don’t really sleep because all your dreams are so f’d up that you can distinguish between them and reality.

I haven’t had much energy for anything. Needless to say that THE BEST POLITCAL TEAM in the world has become my only contection to the outside world. Unfortuntaly, that also meant that they seemed to dominate my delirious dreams. Imagine Wolf Blitzer’s demonic beard haunting your dreams and you get the picture!

It got so bad that on Thursday night, I thought the overlord Obama was talking to directly to me during the debate when he called out for all the Delirious people to join him…

Turns out he was just shooting down Hilary.

So needless to say this week has been a complete and utter write-off. Sorry for not being in touch.

First – This is how weak I have been this week. After an epic search, we finally bought a wii this on Sunday and I haven’t even had time to create some customized Miis.

Can you fathom an Admiral ACKBAR Mii character? Can you fathom that awesomeness?

Second – For godsake, Don’t fahk with St.Patrick!

Third – The BRIT Awards were on CBC last night and like always this Booze fueled musical orgy was no disappointment. Those cheeky monkeys – the Arctic Monkeys cleaned up the night with two booze filled acceptance speeches. While the highlight musically, well besides the whole Sir. Paul McCartney thing, was The Unspeakable One’s version of Umbrella with the Klaxxons.


Rihanna and The Klaxons – Umbrella – BRIT Awards 2008

Fourth – And with that The Unspeakable One still solidifies a spot in the freebie five.

Fifth – A beautiful Flow Wallpaper for your new desktop.

Sixth – Fascinating post by Mark Cuban on acquiring Jason Kidd for the Dallas Mavericks.

Seventh – I’m stealing this link from Jd. But White people do love MOS DEF.

Eight – BTW read JD’s blog if you ever wonder what it’s like to want to stop blogging. Probably one of the most unique inner monologues about wanting to stop blogging.

Nine – Top Ten Wii games coming out this year. Mario Kart + Competitive Girlfriend = long nights on the couch.

Random Thoughts For A Yellow Vadar Friday November 23, 2007

One of my top ten must dos, before dying is see the spectacle that is an National Football League tailgate.

First – A 14 minute video of the best Sega Intro Screens.
(via veer)

One of the coolest things I did as a kid was to wake up late at night, sneak into my living room and play some random genesis game in the wee hours of the morning. Depending on the game the intro screen either gave me small goosebumps or like the Jurassic Park intro (1:49) scared the living sh!t out of me.

Second – An amazing interview of Nova Scotia hip-hop Artist/Former Yankees Prospect Buck 65, by Nathan of Music-critic Folklore. Fantastic insight into the struggles of the Canadian Musician. Well done buddy.

Third – A Facebook group about throwing stuff at local prostitutes in Winnipeg gets users of the group in trouble. How did you not see that one coming, I joined HoboWars knowing that would get a bad reaction from some people – and that’s a fictional dorky RPG.

Common sense people … simple common sense.

Fourth – If you where wondering why none of your ex-boyfriends were on it, but allllllll of your ex-girlfriends are on it, then look no further. It turns out that Facebook is mostly girls.

Fifth – Love him or hate him, but Mark Cuban is a very smart and hilarious man. There’s one thing that he’s proved time and time again, for as much as a blow hard that he may come off as, he never ever backs down.

Sixth – Via Kottke.org – the Top 60 Japanese Buzzwords of 2007.

Funnily enough JAM is now where to be seen on this list?

Billy’s Bootcamp, the 7-day DVD exercise program developed by Tae Bo guru Billy Blanks, took Japan by storm in 2007, selling over a million copies. After completing the program, you are supposed to cry “Victory!”

Seventh – Via the newly redesigned Dooce Lady – Music from Muscles.

Play the Ice cream song. It’ll put a smile in your knickers.
