80’s Flashback

“Do you like Phil Collins? I’ve been a big Genesis fan ever since the release of their 1980 album, Duke. Before that, I really didn’t understand any of their work. Too artsy, too intellectual. It was on Duke where Phil Collins’ presence became more apparent. I think Invisible Touch was the group’s undisputed masterpiece. It’s an epic meditation on intangibility. At the same time, it deepens and enriches the meaning of the preceding three albums. (American Psycho)”.

I remember this as one of my favorite 80’s video’s on MTV back when they still had videos on MTV and not just reality (and I use that word loosely) TV and completely scripted dating shows where parents and the kid dating their daughter/son talk shit to each other while watching their son/daughter/boyfriend/girlfriend go on a series of dates with the point of being to get the datee’s to spout out as many sexual innuendo’s as possible.  But that’s neither here nor there.

I really like the puppets in the video, essentially caricatures of the band and various political figures.  Plus the song rocks.

The video quality could be a little better on youtube but you get what you pay for right.

“But I also think Phil Collins works best within the confines of the group, than as a solo artist, and I stress the word artist. This is Sussudio Land of Confusion, a great, great song, a personal favorite.”


Who gives a fuck?  She had 8 kids at one time and has like 14 altogether.  Yea she’ll be sucking of the governments tit for the rest of her and her kids lives.  There’s worse things goin on out there even if she was artificially insemenated.

Get over it.

Kermit the Frog Arrested on Domestic Abuse Charges

miss-piggyPolice were called to the Los Angeles home of Kermit the Frog early Friday morning to investigate a domestic dispute between his on and off again girlfriend Miss Piggy.  Kermit the Frog allegedly struck Miss Piggy several times in the face leaving several bruises and a black eye.

To the right is a police photo obtained by TMZ.com early this afternoon.

Friends of Kermit have been increasingly alarmed at his behavior lately.  An unnamed source saying Kermit has recently been abusing cocaine and alcohol on a regular basis leading to a very irascible temperament.

Sources say the argument started innocently enough over the toilet seat being up and Kermit’s socks lying beside the hamper and not in it.  It is believed that this along with Miss Piggy’s incessant nagging and annoying voice (as well as the substance abuse) led to Kermit acting out in violence.

When Muppet character Beaker was asked to comment on the situation he was quoted to say, “Meep Meep Meep Meep!”

Cialis – Bathtubs and Beaches

When the Ocean just won't due

I was just wondering who the fuck gets tandem bathtubs on a beach? How does this happen and for what reason. Obviously there’s not running water on the beach or at least not hot water. Which is essentially the reason for a tub, taking a hot bath. So what the fuck s going on here? It seems like it would take a hell of a lot of effort to lug two claw foot tubs to the beach just to lounge around in without hot water. Even if you pour hot water into the tub after you get them to the beach (which you then have to matriculate the hot water down there), how long does the water stay hot? Not very long.

The logistics of this endeavor are just hard to justify the end result of having a romantic bath on the beach with your lady friend for all of 10 minutes. And if you’re all about being together in water why don’t you just get in the FUCKING OCEAN?

And then there’s the whole thing of why are there two tubs?  Why not just one tub that two people can fit into?  I think if I were with a lady friend ,on the beach in a tub, I would want to be in the same tub as her.  You know putting on whatever cheesy moves I could to get her bathing suit off or at least trying to get some good fingerblasting/clit massaging in.

But then again that’s just me and my perverted tub/beach fantasy.

Note: I just saw a tempurpedic bed commercial where a couple was outside in some sort of garden/park on a bed admiring the view.  Is there an underground society of well groomed, good looking 30-40 something homless people that take baths at the beach and sleep on tempuredic mattresses outside in parks?  Beerslugger.com will get to the bottom of this!

Demitri Martin – Comedy Central Show

Demetri Martin’s got jokes. He does jokes on musical instruments and he does them with a “Huge Pad” and his drawings. Now I guess he’s going to do some sketches as well. He’s got a new Comedy Central show coming out soon.

He uses a dry delivery much like Mitch Hedberg and Steven Wright. He apparently used to write for Conan. He’s got a signature mop top that was probably really cool in 1970.

I’ll give this show a go and let you know.

Progressive.com Insurance Chick

Is it just me or does anyone else wants to bang the progressive.com chick.  She’s so pasty white and it’s  even more contrasted by the lipstick.  Caked up eye make up straight out of the 60’s. Reminds you of a girl that you used to sit behind in 3rd grade and used to pull her hair, but all growns up.  She seems kind of unstable like if she didn’t take her med’s she’d snap at any second.

Her name in the commercials is Flo which makes her all that more appealing because I’ve never banged a girl named Flo.  Flo is a hard name to come by though there is a waitress by the name of Flo (which I ask for by name) at the local Denny’s we frequesnt after the bars close.

Still I can’t figure out why i want to bang this chick so bad.  She’s really bubbly and happy and I hate that.  I just want to bend her over that checkout stand and grudge fuck her.

Is that weird? I wonder if I could get the Geico Gecko involved in this somehow.  Oh I gotta go I just found my masturbation scenario for today.

Conan – Last Show as Late Night host

I got pretty drunk last night. Happy hour turned into a 5 hour booze fest. However, I was home in time to eat some leftovers and catch the end of Conan Obrien’s last show as Late Night host before he moves to Los Angeles and a The Tonight Show respectively.

Like I said I didn’t see the whole show but I did see the end where Conan thanked a bunch of people including Lorne Michaels of SNL for taking a guy “with no television experience and bad skin” and giving him a show, Jay Leno who he said would “continue to be his lead in”, but the thing that stuck with me the most was the praise he gave to Dave Letterman who “invented this late-night show… it all started with David Letterman”. Conan’s voice cracked a little while promising to “never grow up” moving to The Tonight Show.

Andy Richter (Conan’s old side kick) was on the show, so apparently was Will Ferrell doing a W. impression.

Not sure how long this link will work but here is the link to view the last show HERE!!!

To tell you the truth I’ve been watching a lot more of Craig Ferguson lately but this episode reminded me of how good Conan can be.  It was filled with clips of previous shows.  Pretty Hilarious!

Now I’ll have to choose between Conan and Letterman after completely ignoring Jay Leno for his entire tenure.

Obviously we wish Conan the best.  Not sure how Jimmy Fallon will fill the shoes but I’m glad it’s not Carson Daly.

Artificial Sweeteners.

I really never go for the Diet Soda.  It tastes terrible and not that it makes me sick, it just doesnt sit right in my stomach.  If I’m going to get a soda it’s going to be the real thing, Sugar and All.

Over the last couple of years I had heard some negative things about artificial sweeteners but never really thought anything about it because I never drank them.

Then I came across some information on the interweb that confirms some suspicions I’ve had about artificial sweeteners.

“A 2005 study by the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio showed that, rather than promoting weight loss, the use of diet drinks was a marker for increasing weight gain and obesity. Those that consumed diet soda were more likely to gain weight than those that consumed naturally-sweetened soda. Sharon P. Fowler, MPH, who conducted the study, posited that it is not the diet drinks but something associated with their use that is linked to weight gain, perhaps simply that use of diet drinks increased as a person noticed that he or she was gaining weight. Fowler also speculated that perhaps giving the body the “taste” of energy-rich foods triggers a search for the real thing, or, as nutrition expert Leslie Bonci, MPH, RD, put it, “People think they can just fool the body. But maybe the body isn’t fooled. If you are not giving your body that food energy you promised it, maybe your body will retaliate by wanting more energy.”” (From Wikipedia)

“Artificial sugars are worse than normal sugars because they fool the brain into thinking you just ate some sugar. When you eat artificial sweeteners, the brain sends out chemicals to combat the sugar the way it usually does. But it can’t find the sugar in the body because you didn’t really eat it. So the brain sends off another chemical that tells the body to create a craving. The body has all the chemicals to fight sugar but no sugar to fight, so you start craving carbohydrates, which will metabolize into sugar, so you will feel satisfied. People who drink diet sodas find it very difficult to lose weight, because the false sugar stimulates cravings, which causes them to eat more.”

So the benefits of drinking diet soda or using artificial sweeteners in your coffee (0 or very low calories) are essentially negated by a carb craving it induces after ingested.  People use these products as substitutes to regular sugar and end up wanting to eat more. It’s a vicious cycle.

I guess the moral of the story is that you really shouldn’t have too much of either regular sugar or artificial sweeteners but I’ll stick with the real sugar.

This also calls into question some of the light beers I occasionally am handed at a bar or pull out of a cooler at a BBQ.  I happen to hate Miller Lite.  Can’t tell you how much I hate it.  Never really had a problem with Michelob Ultra and never had MGD 64, however, does this same principal apply to these light beers.  Are we sacrificing some carbohydrates in the beer and end up getting hosed some other way?  The research continues….
