Wow. I never realized I liked gossip so much...

Especially when it has to do with baseball. Bravo!

On The DL.

A weblog about man-whore baseball players and the women (and sometimes men) who know where they hang out before and after the games. They mention wang size, fetishes, and all sorts of nasty, sordid details while never giving up the player's name... They save that for the comments.

Amazing, addictive stuff.

55David on Youtube

This is the first in a series of user-based entries from Youtube that I've found interesting, for a variety of reasons. 55David's stuff is reasonably simple-story based work. He's clearly a beginner, but there's something in all of it that I like--perhaps the fact that it's clear that he makes the videos at home and involves his family... It's kind of cute, really.


Risk. It's all about getting pounded at games by your children, while not letting them win.

In celebration of a big, useless win yesterday, it's the Bengals fight song!

Hear that Bengal growlin',
Mean and ang-a-ree,
Here he comes a prowlin',
Lean and hung-a-ree,
An offensive brute,
Run, pass, or boot,
And defensively he's rough! Tough!

Cincinnati Bengals,
That's the team we're gonna cheer to vic-to-ry!

Touchdown Bengals!
Get some points up on that board
and win a game for Cincinnati!

Chad Johnson could be insane. Hasn't he seen Super Size Me?
It's a thing of beauty...

A brief memory of last year's game vs. the Packers...
Who Dey?

The drama, the excitement, the destiny. Or something like that.

Thanks for sending this my way, Brad.

I had no idea there was such a market for He-Man stuff on the Internet...

Life Lessons

Ummm... yeah. It's cute, and I'm sure the person who did it is like seventeen. Rock out, seventeen-year-old.

Today is Rubik's Cube.

Jessica Fridrich

Apparently she invented the current most popular method to speedsolving the Rubik's cube.

Five freakin' years old. I feel so dumb, yet so glad that I've devoted my time to other things, like finding videos of five-year-olds solving... wait. I'm an idiot.

Guess what today's obsession is?

Theremin Killed the Radio Star

I am way too far behind, or something.

So I came across this really intriguing musician (or musicians) going under the name Jandek. Apparently there's quite a fanbase and, as seems to be the pattern over the last couple/few years, I'm just now finding out about him/them.

I must pick up some of his/their music; the little I've heard is very, very strange, but good. If you're into that kind of thing, anyhow.

Check out information about Jandek and Corwood Industries here: http://tisue.net/jandek/

Just... Wow.

Mr. Pacman


This is a band that I should have known about years ago. I really need to start listening to music again...
Anton Maiden
I had no idea that he was no longer with us. Wow. I'm kind of bummed now.

Say no more...


"I am a movie star. I am strong."

Ummm...

There's nothin' like dancin' piggies. Am I right?

If you haven't seen it, you really need to...

Best. Movie. Ever.


Mike McCabe knows what I'm talking about.

Yowtch.
Umm...

This might be the weirdest thing I've seen in a long, long time.

From a Fantomas movie...

Yup.
Tomahawk - Flashback (Live, 2002 - Heavy Shift)

It's hard to look stylish when you're on the ground, writhing in pain.


I might be the only person that remembers this song...

Mike Tyson!

Need a definition for "Not Safe For Work?"

Today's obsession is Mike Tyson.

He's a manimal...
For all the geeks...

If you remember this, like I do, you're saying, "That dude was easy... I want to see Soda Popinski!"

You say it's your birthday...


This is completely goofy. It's another "birthday" themed video for Jill.

It's weird and vaguely corporate, but...

Happy birthday, Jill!

Today is my wife's birthday!

More than meets the "Why?"


I can't believe that they're making a friggin' movie. A live action movie. A live action movie with DANE COOK in it.

*Please tell me he's playing Optimus Prime*

All right...

Not sure whether the three of you, whoever you might be, have noticed, but I've been putting youtube videos on this weblog the past few days. I rather like this instead of writing reviews. So, there'll be lots of these, put up as often as I can, with sparing text.

The stuff I'm looking for on youtube has thus far fallen into the following criteria: (1) Stuff that I find interesting; (2) Stuff that I find stupid; and (3) Stuff that I think is gross.

If you can dig up suggestions, send me the link via email and I'll post it. Or something. If you don't feel like sending suggestions, then you'll have to deal w/ the crap that I find.

I don't mind if it rains or freezes...

Puke like a champion today

Dude can shove 'em down, no?

Oh, yes you can drive 55. Here's what happens...

A Meditation On The Speed Limit

Pure genius.

The Bengals beat Washington's 3rd stringers...

It's starting soon...

Who Dey, bitches. If we can't beat you on the field, we'll make you want to die because of our crappy rappy.

Girl, I want to take you to a gay bar.


I love this song. Had no idea there was a video. The video might be better...

Just because.


Yep.

How to make a realtor crazy

1. Be interested in purchasing a house.
2. Have impossibly high standards and dangerously low limits on what you're willing to spend.
3. Look at five houses. Talk shit about each one and point out every last flaw, as though you're a home inspector.
4. Go home, eat dinner.
5. Look at five more houses a week or so later, find one that's interesting.
6. Make an offer (notice the realtor's excitement) on the house.
7. The offer you've made is accepted by the seller.
8. The deal falls through because of the city (it's a long, old story that I don't want to get into right now).
9. Stop looking for houses for at least seven months.
10. Call realtor back, months later, because you're still interested in looking at houses.
11. Look at five houses, talk shit about each one. Getting better at pointing out flaws yet? Good.
12. Eat dinner. Spaghetti, preferably.
13. A week later, look at five more houses. Repeat part b of step 11. The talking shit part, anyway.
14. Repeat step 12.
15. Repeat step 13.
16. Look at even more houses, find one that you like. When the realtor retrieves information about how much the energy costs are, say, "We can't afford that. Back to the drawing board!"
17. Look at ten more houses. Find one you're interested in.
18. Make an offer $27,000 less than the asking price.
19. Embroil yourself in a bidding war that you walk away from.
20. Tell the realtor you've got a few more you'd like to look at, but after that, you don't want to look as aggressively for a while. Maybe a year.

Note: I think our realtor, who is perhaps the coolest lady in the world, might be at her end with us. What sort of gift should we buy for her?
