It’s that time of year again. Four days: me and my family in the woods somewhere, drinking lots of Bud Lights, eating shitty hot dogs, playing card games until it’s time to play beer pong, then passing out and starting all over again.
We’re not hikers.
But, it does mean I’m going to be away from the Internet for a while. I’ll be back in town on Sunday, so maybe I’ll write something then. Or maybe not.
In the meantime, here is the usual bag of links for your enjoyment.
Top Five MTV Unplugged shows of all time: #5 – Stone Temple Pilots, #4 – Jay-Z with The Roots, #3 – Pearl Jam, #2 – Alice In Chains, #1 – Nirvana.
If you missed the new Comedy Central show “Review”, I REALLY suggest you give it a chance. If you haven’t seen the pancakes episode, you are missing one of the funniest episodes of television in 2014. Also, if you’re not watching Nathan For You, then you’re truly missing out on a master at work.
Maybe I’m an idiot, but I really do think Gus Bradley can turn around that Jaguars franchise.
Anybody catch the Steven Hauschka profile in ESPN?
I immediately went home and downloaded a bunch of Steven Seagal movies after reading this. For the record, Under Siege IS the best Seagal movie, but that’s no fun. It’s the obvious choice! As much as people clown on it, I’ve always been into Hard To Kill and that coma beard.
Shit, I really would’ve watched the shit out of Timms Valley!
Tool was the best bad on the planet for a hot minute, but after the genius of Lateralus, they were never the same (there, I said it).
I watched all two hours of this Dave Chappelle / Neal Brennan found-footage documentary about the end of Chappelle’s Show and everything surrounding it. You need to be a certain kind of comedy nerd to manage that. Also, for the record, check out Neal Brennan’s latest special; he’s a great stand-up in his own right.
Seinfeld had a recent 25th Anniversary. My friends and I recently went to a Seinfeld Trivia Night. We’d all seen the show, seen all the episodes, but I’ll tell you what: unless you’re a mentally defective, obsessive personality, DO NOT go to one of these themed trivia nights! Because, unless you can remember this one specific thing that was said one time in one episode in season 3, and unless you can get every single question correct, you might as well not even bother. There are always people who are trivia-smarter than you out there when it’s narrowed down to one specific topic over the course of the entire night. Also: The Lost Seinfeld Episode?
At the height of my dementia, I had well over 1,100 CDs. Maybe on up to 1,500; I forget the final count. Had to sell them off when I moved across the country, but now that I’m back, my collection is slowly building again.
Who wouldn’t watch the shit out of a Breaking Bad sequel featuring Slash and Val Kilmer? Yeah, THAT Slash and THAT Val Kilmer.
Seems pretty crazy that Mike Holmgren doesn’t have a job in football. But, at least we get him on the radio sometimes.
Being a warm-up comedian sounds like it’s one step above Mime. And, if you’ve seen Shakes The Clown, you know what I’m talking about.
Captain Janks is the man. I wish I still had access to the Howard Stern show in the mornings instead of the dreck they’ve got here in Seattle.
There must have been a way to squeeze the Foo Fighters in there somewhere in the last decade. Seriously, give me a fucking break with Deerhunter!
You CAN masturbate to memories! I’ve done it!
