f-ing a crowbar

this morning, steve from work told me they say that all the time in michigan (well, not the edited version, obviously). example: someone says "f-ing a." then you retort with, "f-ing a CROWBAR!" as if that's the ultimate; you cannot top that statement. i like it. then we must've said it about 15 times in a row. it was so funny, and i think it is my duty to inform people about this wonderful curseword.

also, my mom called me at 7 this morning. i had a mouthful of toothpast, and i was like, "OMG, is something WRONG?!?!?" she was just calling to tell me that bob dylan is playing at the minor league ballpark that is like 10 minutes from where i live. SWEET! she knew it would make my day. my mom is awesome. anyway, bob show #15, here i come!!

man, boing boing always has the best stuff!

this town needs an enema.

...and we sure got one.

Tequila in his heartbeat, his veins burned gasoline.

"uhhhh, YEAH...i'm gonna have to ask you to go ahead and jam for an hour straight...yeah...if you could go ahead and do that, that'd be GREAT."

maybe the dingo ate your urine!!!

don't worry...

offical damnocracy. you know, i think "fist" was a better name than that. even "savage animal" was better than that!!! but oh man...that sebastian bach is a hot mess!!

related, dumb little story: several years back, i temped at an electric company for like 3 weeks. i did the paid training, knew i was never going to last a day in their call center, and left after taking, like, one phone call. anyway, we handled PA and NJ, so one day all the irresponsible trainees were trying to look up famous people that we knew lived in jersey. springsteen was the natural first choice (no luck). but, i did find whitney houston (who had a $4,000 per month bill...hell to the no!) and sebastian bach (i actually knew to look him up as sebastian bierk--ewww, i know). good ol' baz had received 3 shut-off notices. OUCH.

that is all.

"Ben, the two of us need look no more/we both found what we were looking for..."

i think i need to join bloggers anonymous. i used to never post on weekends, and now here i am, bloggin' on a sunday...

"never rub another man's rhubarb."

that is one line from "batman" that just never made it into the pop culture lexicon. we're watching it right now for the first time in years and years, and there are so many one-liners that are etched into our brains...i forgot what an insane big deal that movie was when it came out. by the way, my favorite batman is christian bale.


related? goths like bats...

i just discovered that the guy in the wheelchair who answers the trivia question for free coffee in "ghost world" is crispin glover's dad!

i also found these pictures of eric stoltz in the scenes he filmed when he was the original star of "back to the future." man, i was so in love with michael j. fox back then. i thought he was the coolest. but eric looks way cooler to me now, in retrospect...more 80's alternative-guy.

i watched this today. it's about VD. specifically, syphillis.

here's a list of films shown on usa: up all night. i watched it faithfully every weekend as a youth.

and here's a list of films quentin tarantino has shown at the qt film fests in austin. y'all just need to cut and paste the titles from those 2 lists and put 'em in your netflix queue. you'll have a great couple of months ahead of you!

okay, would you just look at this guy?!? i mean, WOW, i wish i could be as hip as this guy! actually, at least he's unique. most everybody on those hipster party sites look exactly the same. like, they need a shot of penicillin and a square meal.

bow wow wow

today is take your dog to work day. so, go back home, get your dog, and show him/her what you do all day while you leave them at home, all alone, missing you.

new york people --- leave manhattan and move to philly. check out these ads, which are funny, done by art school students, and kind of true. but, you know. i mean, i love philly, a whole lot. but i don't think people would leave new york for it, nor do i think they like people dissing their city.

this cheesy "free tour of our fabulous resort community, no obligation weekend for two" thing with erik estrada makes me laugh. and i always think of "empire of the ants" when i see it...

so, my dad is a freemason, and we are from pennsylvania...i wonder if he knows balki now?!?!? (sidenote: when i emailed this link to my boyfriend, he wittily replied: "who made balki bartokomous a star? WE DO!!!")

interesting/scary thing my friend christine discovered when she tried to check out an innocent website when she was in dubai.

billy name. just because. (sidenote: christine's husband peter looks eerily like billy name with glasses. i saw billy name the other night on how to draw a bunny, and i was shocked at the resemblence!)

related? draw and color a bunny with uncle fred.

i read that this place is shutting down. WHY, I CAN'T BELIEVE IT!

"shake this square world and blast off for kicksville!"

home de POT?!

discontinued disneyland attractions.

this is all fine and dandy, but it's still no actual gn'r. we need a real reunion tour! slash and duff need to stop that velvet revolver nonesense already...

speaking of reuniting bands of yesteryear...

this shirt made me laugh.

i bet this DVD would make me laugh, too...but for all the wrong reasons.

"Come on and take a look. Take a trip from 'Squaresville'. Live a little."

...poor little hamster!

woo-hoo! YES! YES! (although the titles mentioned sound a lot like grateful dead songs to me. eek.)

every day is a little brighter with some paul reubens...

...and some johnny cash.

perhaps i should look into making things like this instead of boring old jewelry...

ouch!! oh,'ve fallen so far... although having one of those shirts would be funny for about 5 minutes.

here you can view my all-time favorite drug-related classroom scare film, "narcotics: pit of despair." this flick's got some GREAT QUOTES, such as, "C'mon man get with it! Drag it man, try anything once. Fly. You can't get a habit with weed." and, "John surrenders his dignity and lays his future on the chopping block."

stop the world, i wanna get off

man, some days i wake up and i JUST CANNOT DEAL!! i have never woken up on a wronger side of the bed than i did this morning. well, that's probably not true, but it was a pretty dire "i'm fat/i'm ugly/i'm old/i hate my job" situation. i just sat down on the bed and looked at my boyfriend and said, "i just can't do this today, man." but i'm here. here i am. LOVING IT. :/ anyway...

interview with ari gold. perhaps i should work for him...?

get well soon, loretta!

ok, people. not EVERY SINGLE trend of the past needs to come back.

"o'er the RAAAPIDS we ruunnngh....thru the night..."

i don't know how all of these people kept from losing it. i really don't. funny funny funny.

more later...i have all kinds of work to do. ugh. i keep forgetting that work is for working, and not for blogging...

but before i go, here is a picture chris found last night on some site featuring cute foofy schmooshy cats. it's a girl, who looks a lot like me, with a cat that looks a lot like gertie. but it's not us. that girl's got a bigger rack.

p.s. goin' to see wolfmother on sunday...should be a groovy, heavy, zeppelin-esque, australian time.
