A Few Changes

September 9, 2010

Whew.  It’s been quite a while since I’ve updated this site; my apologies to all for my negligence, but I was busy getting married.  So, let me quickly answer all your questions.

-Yes, I’m still glad I got married.

-Yes, the wedding went well.

-No, I really don’t feel that different.

Now that that’s out of the way, let’s get to the important stuff; and by that I could mean nothing else but the Fall television lineup.  That’s right folks, all the shows you should be watching, like It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia, Dexter, The League, The Office, 30 Rock, and Californication, are returning for their new seasons.  And of course, after a painstaking 18 month hiatus, Kenny Powers  will be bringing that beautiful mullet back into our living rooms with a fresh season of Eastbound & Down.  And while most of us patiently waited for Danny McBride to grace us with a second season, others felt that it was just too long of a wait.  For example…

In case you can’t tell who the guy on the right is, let me help me out.

First take away the mullet.  Then look closely and picture him with a ton of makeup, fake prosthetic breasts, and surrounded by ignorant picketing parents who are blaming him for the shooting at Columbine.  That’s right, the Antichrist Superstar himself, Marilyn Manson, may have finally been driven to a schizophrenic state by the prolonged absence of his favorite premium cable show.

Well, at least it’s not True Blood.

So settle into your couch’s ass groove and get your DVRs ready.  It’s gonna be awesome.


No New Episodes = Christmas

December 15, 2009

Dexter. Californication. It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia. The League:  Four of the six shows I watched religiously this fall; and none of them will air a new episode for ten months.

Some of the shows had some surprise endings: [SPOILER ALERT!]

And all of them had some memorable moments:

With all of these shows finishing their respective runs for the year, it can only mean one thing: Christmas is looming and subsequently attempting to rid my checking account of any money I’ve saved for a wedding or a PlayStation 3.

There is, however, one thing I love about Christmas: the music.

And no, I’m not talking about Gene Autry songs.  You see back in 2000 I started making Christmas albums for my friends in lieu of real gifts, and I even managed to do it for five years before running out of material.  I scoured record stores all over Milwaukee every year in an effort to find yuletide tunes that were often overlooked along with some of the most fucked up carols I could find.  What you see below is a “best of,” if you will, containing some of the best songs I’ve acquired over the years.  So be sure to buy/download/steal these albums, or just email me.
