I would think getting a new kitchen would be fun but this week has been a nightmare. I have had about enough and hope the work goes quickly over the next two weeks.

All I wanted to do tonight was write a little financial stuff and get the Friday Night show up and running when the cable and Internet go out for an hour right as I was setting up to write! Obstacles all around it seems. Anyhoo, I will have some commentary this weekend on these topics:
-The Euro zone stress tests (sad joke)
-Ben Bernanke's 18 hour flip flop on policy (total incompetence)
-Philosophical musings on the system as it stands

For now I have limited time and you know I hate to disappoint, so on with the show!

Fun with Pictures
P-A-R-T-Why? Because I've got to mister!

Seems harsh punishment for the crime, yes?:
funny pictures of cats with captions
see more Lolcats and funny pictures
Poor thing!

Another 99 week unemployment collector:

Did I ever mention the times in college I worked at convenience stores and folks in Mercedes and Lexus cars would come in and pay with food stamps? Sad stuff.

Interesting Stuff
Some wild stuff from this week that I came across.

You know you want a set of monster robot arms:

Watch out ladies!

Did you know?:
-The Stepan Company is the only legally operated firm that can process coca leaves yielding both cocaine for the pharma industry and spent coca leaves for the Coca Cola company?
-Rotary engines have less moving parts than regular engines?
-That Muad'Dib means a mouse like shape on a moon?
-Stephen King lists "The Door into Summer" as a major inspiration?

Film Clips
You know you want to rent it now......

Ahhh, the family truckster:

Too funny! And yes that is Eugene Levy!

Not a film but enjoy a great rapier/main gauche duel from the Highlander series episode "Duende":


Rock Blogging
It is music time for the masses.

Loyal reader Watchtower wonders if I will play Van Halen when Sammy Hagar is the singer. I will if the tune is good, so here is "There's Only One Way to Rock":

Eddie is hot on the chords in this one! Great pick.

Reader Lurker would like some Kenny Loggins "I'm All Right" from Caddyshack:


A friend of mine requested "Snakeskin Cowboy" by Ted Nugent and I had never heard it before:

Not bad at all!

I love Patty Smyth and thus run with Scandal and "Goodbye to You":


You will have to turn this one way up, but I am sure you have heard Samuel Barber's "Adagio for Strings" many times in so many films:

So wonderful.

Two to go! "Two minutes left; perhaps 2 minutes left in Julio Cesar Chavez's historic unbeaten streak"
Famous last words by Jim Lampley!

Let's stick with the instrumentals! Listen to the 30 second mark on to the 1:10 mark and try and remember this scene from "Conan the Barbarian":

I hear that all the time in my head, along with all the voices!

Last call!!!! Grab a girl or a reasonable facsimile thereof and close the show!

I am only putting this on so I can watch Lil Kim in action! Selfish, yes. Eye candy, yes. Can I help it? No:

Call me Kimmy!

Have a good night.

I have looked for SO LONG for that Conan music at that part of the film, amazing!

watchtower said...

Sign me up for the monster robot arms!

That way when Cyberdyne takes over the world they will know that I'm not someone to f*** with.

getyourselfconnected said...

Yeah, I think I am going to warm up my glue gun for that effort!

RANDALL said...

I could do the arms in stainless for you guys..
Snakeskin cowboy is way back there. 1977..
Ted is such a head.. lol

I love little Kim now....

watchtower said...

Woohoo it's Saturday!

I know you've bound to have seen this already GYSC, but just in case:

Darth Vader Robs Bank!

'I find your lack of cash disturbing'

Indeed, how the mighty have fallen if the Dark Lord needs to rob a bank!

GawainsGhost said...

Well, gotta love the Moulin Rouge. Mya is the hottest though, and the best singer, Pink a close second, Lil Kim, well, on a desperate night. But Christina Aguilera, for such a skinny little girl, she has a big voice. That girl can sing.

Check her out here.

"Lil Kim, well, on a desperate night"

What? Que? Lil Kim is flammable hot and I would take her over the others in a second! You are CRAZY! I feel a poll question coming on!

Oh yeah, I guess they sing as well!

sedintary state said...

Here's a price that's good for a laugh or two.

getyourselfconnected said...

typical boston area stuff, rude and crude!

GawainsGhost said...

Well, Lil Kim is a rapper. Mya is a singer. But all of these girls are totally hot. I'd take Mya over any of them though. But I notice that Christina has had the classiest post-Moulin Rouge career. Maybe that's because she married a producer. I don't know. Still, I think Mya's the hottest.

By the way, I'm surprised you haven't chosen Boston more often.

getyourselfconnected said...

Fair enough Gawains! I would say Mya is hot:

but I love my Kimmy:
and WOW!
