It’s about that time for another list from my boss, and long time on-again, off-again friend, Paul. How do I know it’s time? Because he told me so.
Top 5 80’s Toy Commercial Songs (Non-TV Show)
5) Madballs – Freaky fun for everyone. I had one or two of these. [I had the mummy one. I also collected the comics. Why they had a comic is beyond me. Why I collected them is even farther out. – Ed.]
4) Toys R Us– Just like the song said… I didn’t want to grow up, either. Some people, like this blog’s owner, never have. [Damn skippy. – Ed.]
3) Skip It – A shoddy toy, but a cool song. [The counter on the ball is analog. Totally worth watching the vid simply for that. – Ed.]
2) Lego – Like Zack, we were all Lego Maniacs back in the 80’s. [Since I’ve never grown up, I’m still a Lego Maniac. – Ed.]
1) My Buddy – My brother, Bert, had one. Not sure what happened to it. Not a big fan of the toy, but the song is so catchy that I find myself singing it to my two year old son, Logan. I call him “my buddy.” Pause for the awwwws. [My eyes are still rolling which makes it tough to type. – Ed.]
From one of the fakest women in the world comes one of the fakest blehgs in the world. Wanna see Kim look like she’s been visited by Madame Tussauds? Or if she was a Real Doll? Then her site’s full of pics like this:
How’s that for a headline? Can’t you just hear the newsiessinging screaming that one? As it turns out, two weekends ago I went to NYC for a Snuggie Pub Crawl (and also met a friend). This weekend, I went to Seattle to visit a friend… and almost went on a Snuggie Pub Crawl!
"Pub Crawl or Bust!" - soon to be printed on the front of my Snuggie
Alas, my travelling compadres on this latest sojourn weren’t too keen on picking up some “Slankets” (as they were referred to on last week’s 30 Rock), and we opted for traditional bar hopping, which was just as well. Albeit Seattle was a tad cooler than New York the week prior (making “blankets with sleeves” more comfy), which is ironic, because NYC is simply ‘cooler.’ No offense, Seattle, but no other city can compete.
SIDENOTE: Whenever I use the word ironic, I’m always afraid I’ll pull an Alanis. Am I alone in regard to this ‘worry?’
BONUS SIDENOTE: I’d say the biggest difference between the East and West Coasts (or at least New York and Seattle) is what follows the prefix hip-… Do you prefer –sters or –pies?
Anywashington, the trip was a great time. To conserve my energy, which is a euphemism for I’m feeling lazy today, here are some pics I took with explanatory captions.
