Only Five. Not Four. Not Six.

Sunday, 28 February 2010

1.  Practice vapidity/mental vacuity while focusing on a red hair bow.

2.  Wear red and ignore those who don’t.

3.  Hide your hands from sight.

4.  Visualize a dotted arc in space and pressure three children to admit that they see it also.

5.  Learn telekinesis and hover a miniature plastic funnel over a red square with white dots.

Saturday Matinee – The Stones, Otis Redding and Bette Midler

Saturday, 27 February 2010

Phil reminded me of this classic from “Some Girls,” one of my favorite Stones albums. We played that album so often that if you held it up to the light you could see through it.  (It’s also a shame that our crack team of webminers had to  go to a Russian website to find Мик Джаггер и Кит Ричардс из этого шоу субботу вечером, что было жить из Нью-Йорка.)

So why stop there?  Here’s a more recent version of “Shattered”  from the same album.

From the album “Tattoo You,” the song “Waiting on a Friend”  goes back to 1970, and I’m not even gonna comment on what Mick is wearing.

Otis Redding couldn’t get no satisfaction, even with Steve Cropper, Duck Dunn and the Memphis Horns backing him up.

Bette Midler’s take on “Beast of Burden” was excellent.

Have a great weekend, folks.

Same rules apply as described here:

There are exactly two books that I’m gonna pre-purchase with cash. Before I take them off the shelf they will have increased in value and I’ll sell them back at double what I paid for them.

Then I’ll do it again.

Male Anorexia Recovery Clinic

Wednesday, 24 February 2010

Think that’s disgusting? Wait until they all get up. Now imagine the sound of sweaty Naugahyde shifting, coupled with the scent of stale beer, talcum powder and flatulence.

What’s worse than that? YOU get to knock on their door at 2AM and tell them to quiet down.

Real Canadian Original Swedish Fish

Tuesday, 23 February 2010

Oh, yeah. It’s Canadian. It’s Swedish. It’s Fish. Right.

What we’ve got here is 538.6 grams of sticky pogie bait gummiecrap being advertised and sold as Original Swedish Fish (as opposed to the ubiquitous knock-offs). You Canucks ought to be ashamed, regardless of the Olympics, so don’t try to pawn this one off on the Greeks. Where do you get off mocking the Swedes?

[Found in Bunk's kitchen.]

Oh. Canada.

Didn’t you immediately think of the Olympics?  So did I.
Just steer clear of him when the sap is running.
