A Handful Of… My All-Time Favorite Duets (Some Are Guilty Pleasures)

Peanut butter and jelly.  Peanut butter and chocolate.  Macaroni and cheese.  Chicken in a Biskit and Easy Cheese.

All better because of their combination.

Well I feel the same way about singers (when I’m not hungry).  Almost any song sung by a man and a woman is instantly superior to the solo acts.  Sure, some same-sex double-ups are equally improved, but today, I don’t feel like focusing on cheese and cheese (although that does sound appetizing).

In no particular order, I present my list of all-time favorite duets:

Drunken Recollection… “Swipe It Like A Credit Card” (AKA “You Might Scream 4 This”)

(Photo courtesy of Amy's quickness with the clicks)

Scream 4 is filming (for some reason) in Plymouth, Michigan (for some reason), and I had no idea as I made my way to the bar to play trivia (for some reason).

Anydewey, as I passed the set piece above, I didn’t pay too much mind since I was being trailed by a Plymouth cop (I had to hide my cell phone courtesy of a new law).  While at trivia, the team I was playing with consisted of some new members, so job talk was brought up, and the birth of this phrase was born (I think it makes a great rap song hook):

Swipe it like a credit card…

The job it referenced:

Border Patrol Agent

Well, one specific act:

I let you connect the dots.

So back to trivia…  talk of Scream 4 began, and I connected the dots.  So after the game, a group of us headed over to the Woodsboro Police Station, and I readied to snap a photo.  But then some teen rent-a-cops yelled that I couldn’t.  And for some reason, I listened.  Afterward, I wished I had said something like:

I’m using Google Goggles to see what this place used to be.

But I didn’t.

And it’s not like they had any authority to swipe it like a credit card…

Hibbidy-Wah?! Las Vegas Pistons Almost Happened (And May Still)?!

I think I like this logo.

Although odds are against this for now, there was a chance that Detroit’s basketball team was going to move to Las Vegas.  This opened up a table full of questions:

  • Would the Pistons have kept their name?
  • Would Detroit have picked up another team?

Okay, so a pair of questions.  Since the Detroit Pistons are currently up for sale, anything can happen before next season.  Aside from the move to another state, the most likely buyer could be:

Mike Ilitch, owner of the Red Wings and Tigers

But it’d be kinda cool if the buyer happened to be either of these guys:

Kid Rock and Eminem, but not in that order

If the Pistons did happen to leave, there could be the possibility of this:

LeBron left, so why not the team?

(SIDENOTE: You see, Cleveland Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert is from Detroit, so you never know.)

MORAL OF THE STORY: Gambling is bad only if you’re losing.

InASense, Lost… Rated PG Bosoms

I know that there are probably way more, but these were the only films that the perverts I work with* could think of that were rated PG and contained exposed, um… why beat around the bush – boobies.  They were favorites of a childhood past (not just the breasts, of course, but also the movies… because of the tatas).

Arguably, most of the following films are children films.  Can you imagine if they tried pulling this off in kiddie flicks today?

Also, I thought this video was an ample match:

Because I’m such a nice blogger, each movie title is a link to none other than Mr. Skin’s thorough website:

Sheena: Queen of the Jungle

The Beastmaster

Sixteen Candles

Irreconcilable Differences

Clash of the Titans

Swamp Thing

Racing with the Moon

Airplane!

Logan’s Run

The Omega Man

*All right, I’ll admit it… I remembered all of them except for three.

So, Duh! Pop Quiz… Classic Video Game Flowchart Edition

(Mushrooms not included...)

This one is pretty (Press Start) straight forward.  I’m presenting the flowchart of a classic video game, and you have to  guess which game it is.  No multiple choices on this pack, folks.  Also, take note that this was more time-consuming than I planned, so the clues change accordingly.
