Awesome Battle… There Shall Be Only One

One of these is not like the others.

This could have been Worth 1002 Words, but it’s really worth one million…  And in this Awesome Battle, there is only one winner – Batgirl’s dad.  (And I’m not talking about Commissioner Gordon.)

In My Brain While Sleeping… The Celebrity Drinking Game Show

Sorta like this, but drunkier...

I’m really getting tired of dreaming up great ideas and having no creative power.  At least I have this blog.  Yup.

This dream surrounds a simple but possibly controversial concept:

Celebrities of varying degrees would be gathered to play drinking games like Presidents and Assholes, Beer Pong, and Quarters.  There will be winners; there will be losers.  Just like at regular award shows.  And they’ll get druuuunk.  Just like at regular award shows.

The Celebrity Drinking Game Show could be hosted by Charlie Sheen, since he’s an expert at partying and Winning! But since he’s been focused on staying “sober,” then maybe we could get this guy:

He's always looking for more celebs to rehab...

A Handful Of… Songs About Body Parts

Operation: Musical Musing

I thought about taking a bunch of songs that were named after body parts and make a picture composed of those parts, but I’m not sure if I will… yet.  Let’s get through A Handful Of (alternative) songs about body parts, and maybe I’ll surprise you.

  • Nine Inch Nail’s Head Like a Hole

  • Smashing Pumpkin’s Eye
  • Weezer’s Dope Nose
  • Bush’s Mouth
  • Death Cab for Cutie’s Crooked Teeth
  • Sum 41’s Fat Lip
  • Young the Giant’s My Body
  • Alice in Chains’ Them Bones
  • Nirvana’s Heart Shaped Box
  • Fuel’s Hemorrhage (In My Hands)

Okay.  I gave in and made a picture.  Enjoy it after the jump… Read More

Coinkydink Or Coinkydonk? Pop Culture Jumbalaya

Remember your ABC's... sitcoms...

There have been a few things that I’ve remembered or discovered or wondered that didn’t warrant their own posts.  So here they all are in one place!

  • What do Growing Pains, Hangin’ with Mr. Cooper, and Full House all have in common?

Well, they were all on ABC.  That’s easy.  But did you know remember care that Alan Thicke appeared at the beginning of Mark Curry’s new show to welcome him to the network as well as the old Growing Pains‘ set?  Hangin’ with Mr. Cooper’s first show took place in the Seaver home – as is/was.  That’s weird.  But even weirder still was that the second episode featured Michelle Tanner (Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen) and Uncle Jesse (John Stamos) from Full House.  Weirdest of all – the show lasted five seasons.

  • EMF and Andrew Dice Clay’s worlds collided.

I had no idea that the opening “Oh!” and titular line “That’s unbelievable!” in EMF’s Unbelievable were sampled from raunchy “comedian” Andrew Dice Clay.  And that’s unbelievable.

  • Things that still make me go hmmm

I haven’t been able to find anything one way or another about these possible Coinkydinks or Coinkydonks, but it doesn’t mean that they’re true (or not):

Did Huey Lewis and the News name themselves such as an homage to 60’s rock group Gary Lewis and the Playboys?

Did 90’s Britpop group Elastica take that name as a spoof and celebration of hard rock band Metallica?

Does anyone else besides me care?  You’re unbelievable.

The Sh– To Even More The Sh–… The Schnitzelbank Song

I am in utter absolute glory.  I recently visited this German bar in Detroit:

Pictured: Dakota Inn of Detroit (Not Pictured: Surrounding Urban Blight)


It was in this very place that I thought I discovered the magnificent Schnitzelbank Song.  Here is the accompanying chart (because how awesome can a drinking song be without an accompanying chart):

Yes, that Haufen Mist is a pile of cow dung...


In public, it sort of went something like this (I swear the Dakota’s Inn version was 100x better):

But in all my research, I came to realize why this song has endeared itself so strongly to me.  And that reason why is this:

(SIDENOTE: It also explains why the name Otto von Schnitzelpusskrankengescheitmeyer has long been stuck in my subconscious…)

JusWondering… What Films Will Inevitably Be Remade?

Your time will come...


Hollywood loves remakes.  It also loves sequels and reboots, but it really loves remakes.  And it’s not just horror films anymore.  Footloose and Red Dawn are on the horizon.  There’s talk of remaking Dune (needs it), Short Circuit (ready for a CG robot, anyone?), and Judge Dredd (more Rob Schneider please).

What else might be coming up?

(SIDENOTE: Did this trend begin when the TV shows-turned-into-movies trend ended?)

At lunch, we discussed the inevitability of a Ferris Bueller’s Day Off remake.  Who would play Ferris?  Shia LeBeouf Zac Efron?  Zack or Cody?

To me, if they remake such a seminal 80’s film as Ferris Beuller’s Day Off, then the 90’s flick Reality Bites wouldn’t be far off.  And that leaves me tons of more questions:

  • Who would be cast in that film?
  • Would it keep the same name?  (Reality Sucks Balls anyone?)
  • Would it be about vampires?
  • Why is Janeane Garafalo so gross now?
