Mr. Roarke Is No Moare

Ricardo Montalban, aged 88, has passed away.  He is best known for portraying Mr. Roarke on “Fantasy Island” and Khan in the second “Star Trek” film (and, of course, the original series, duh).

My lasting memory of him will remain in the form of this commercial that mixes two of my favorite things – Taco Bell and talented lions (which Detroit is in great need of):

If I had known you were still around recently, you would be greatly missed.  May you please settle for moderately missed.
Hopefully that's what's awaiting you big guy... not another you... ah, forget it

Hopefully, that's what's awaiting you, big guy... no, not another you... ah, forget it

Why Not Put Up The Embarrassment

Prince Valiant

Here’s a video I had to make for work.  Since there are far more personal things I could put on here than this, here ya go. 

Pay attention for the special cameo from either Prince Valiant or Little Lulu… I’m not sure which one it is.

The original for comparison.

Sleepy Find… Cute Things Falling Asleep

Watch this and tell me you weren’t effected by it in some way you robot:

It’s like the Long Island Ice Tea of emotions – you get your Aaaaw, then you get your laugh, then you go back to Aaaaw again.  The only ingredient missing is a puppy sneeze.

It’s courtesy of Cute Things Falling Asleep.  Creator Nick Malis had this to say in Time:

“I once rated a baby a 2, and the mother wrote me and said, ‘I think my baby is more than a 2.’ ” Malis refused to change the rating. “My attitude is this: I didn’t make your baby a 2 — you did. It just happens to be a 2. That’s what it is; I’m sorry.”

Man, I need to see this baby.  I found one that combines the same attributes as the above pooch video, and it has 2-rating… but I’d venture to bet that there is more than one ugly sleepy kid on the TripleDoubleU.

I’m just afraid to look.
