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?:
see more Lolcats and funny pictures
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.
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?
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":
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:
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.
