Here are some drunk items that popped up and required follow up (mostly because either my iPhone’s battery was dead, or I was too sauced to check at that moment). But it further proves my point. Well, maybe not my point as much as my slogan – “I’m Thinking Meets Drinking.”
Q: Have I ever heard of the song In The Year 2525 by Zager and Evans?
A: No. Well maybe. But I like this video somebody put together:
Q: Have I ever heard of Saturday Night Live alum, Charles Rocket?
A: No. Well maybe. He’s familiar looking for sure:
In further research (wassup Wiki?!), I uncovered these additional tidbits:
- He was touted as a cross between Bill Murray and Chevy Chase during the 80-81 season of SNL.
- He uttered the word “fuck” at the end of a show, and ceremoniously got canned with the bulk of the cast and crew (save Joe Piscopo and Eddie Murphy).
- He committed suicide… by slicing his own throat.
Q: Have I ever heard of author David Foster Wallace?
A: You mean the man behind Infinite Jest, which Time magazine included in their 100 greatest English-language novels since 1923? You mean the man behind Brief Interviews with Hideous Men, which John Krasinski of The Office adapted into a film? No. Not at all. I just learned all this.
Also learned: he killed himself. (Wassup withat?!)
Q: Have you heard the original version of Unchained Melody by Al Hibbler?
A: I have now. But FYI – it technically wasn’t the original. But it did pre-date Ghost’s theme song the Righteous Brothers version.
Q: Who was I hanging out with that asked me so many questions?!
