Damn you Ruby Tuesday

Damn you Ruby Tuesday.  You took away my Chocolate Tall Cake.  Why not just cut my heart out?

I want my Chocolate Tall Cake! I need my Chocolate Tall Cake! I MUST HAVE MY CHOCOLATE TALL CAKE!!! Hear me Ruby Tuesday?

No one wants your Double Chocolate Cake, nor your Gourmet Cupcakes...well some people might, but not me.  No! I want something big, that includes chocolate, chocolate and more chocolate.  Also some ice cream.   Ice cream is a must.

Since  I have no Shoney's near by I need this, as I cannot get a Hot Fudge Cake. All I had was the Chocolate Tall Cake at Ruby Tuesday.  Now they have gone and taken it away from me.  Why Lord? Why???

How I feel right now.

Rebecca Black absolutely sucks!

Rebecca Black so awesomely bad? No she just plain out sucks!

She proves once again that you do not have to be talented to become famous.  Unlike Will Smith's daughter, WIlliow Smith, I have no idea of where Rebecca Black came from.

Talent is overrated apparently
I heard the son was auto-tuned, but if it was I did not noticed.  I do know if the voice sounds that bad, even after being auto-tuned, then something is terribly wrong.  She might need to find a career other than singing.  I mean some people were just not meant to do certain things.   Even before using a truckload of steroids and hitting a bunch of home runs, Barry Bonds was an MVP caliber baseball player after all.  So while he did cheat, it is not like he was some scrawny kid with no hand eye coordination.  Please not this is in no way, whatsoever a defense of Mr. Bonds either. I am just saying..

Rebecca Black sucks. She sucks Monday.  She sucks Tuesday. She sucks everyday that ends in "y," especially Friday!  So jump in the backseat Rebecca, because your butt sure ain't deserving of riding shotgun with that awful song.

Kystal burgers

I could sure for a Krystal burger right about now.  So small, yet so delicious.  Thinking about that warm, meat or whatever it is, with a pickle and mustard, stuffed between those steamed roll-like buns makes my mouth water.  Mmm!

I only wonder one thing, well besides if it is real meat.  Why do they call Krystal burgers and White Castles' burgers sliders?  Is it because they are so small you can slide them down your throat in one bite?  Is it because you can eat them on a slide, late at night, in a park, where you are hanging with some friends after partaking of some...well..

Why do they call them sliders? I want some Krystals.  Damn!

Ann Coulter is now a radiation expert, apparently

Ann Coulter has obviously been exposed to too much radiation.  Her brain is mush.

I am sure she is just trying to quell any fear of nuclear power and lord forbid, make people cautious of nuclear power plants.  She is scared this might mean that the poor, rich power companies might not make as much money.

Well you can relax Ms. Coulter, or can I call you Ann? We need energy and even many of the evil, leftist, loony, socialists, as you call them, such as the current President, are for Nuclear energy.  

Unlike you though, they do believe in some regulation just to be sure we are safe.  You know, not wanting our kids to glow in the dark and all.  Perhaps you should have watched HBO's special on the Triangle Factory fire tonight.  It might remind, or teach in your case, why we unfortunately do not some oversight.  

Radiation good for you, indeed!

Do girls really want guys like in romantic movies?

You ever notice that what is perceived as romantic in movies could often times be seen as stalking in real life?

Think about it.  Sure, girls say they wish a guy would do one of the many "romantic" things we see in films, but would they really?

Can you say, "stalker"?
Lloyd Dobler standing outside the window holding the radio? In the movie; sweet.  If some guy did that in real life though, he would have a restraining order placed on him faster than he could say, "in your eyes."

That is right ladies.  Do not pretend that you really want an ex boyfriend showing up everywhere you go in disguise, like Randy, in Valley Girl.  If that really happened you would get angrier than a Eminem in well, just about every song he comes out with.   

Edward Scissorhands?! Need we go there? That would just be creepy...

Then again in real life rich men do not fall in love with hookers.  Sorry all you Pretty Woman fans.

Thoughts? Let me know what you think and subscribe if you want any future rants or other such thoughts on films.

AT&T buying T-Mobile? Boo!

AT&T has agreed to terms to purchase T-Mobile USA from Deutsche Telekom AG.  Just great!

As the cell phone industry ages, instead of more and more choices, we seem to keep ending up with less and less.  That is ironic as there are more and more customers every day.

I understand some larger companies buying up smaller companies, but pretty soon it will be down to one or two companies tops.  We could be looking at a monopoly one day. Think about it:

T-Mobile bought out VoiceStream, which had bought out Powertell .  Not long ago they also  purchased SunCom.   Sprint purchased Nextel, AT&T Cingular, Verizon Alltel.  The options keep dwindling folks.

How long before Sprint is gobbled up by AT&T or Verizon? Then who is left to compete with the Goliaths? Metro PCS? They don't count.    Will regulators stop the merger of the 2nd and 4th largest providers? From what I have seen in my lifetime of government, I am going to have to say, "What is no, Alex?"

Of course on a personal level, I am mad.  T-Mobile actual offers a cheap price plan I can live with.  I guess soon I will have to kiss that goodbye.  Thank you German sellouts!

So if the merger eventually goes through, who should I go with, AT&T, Sprint or Verizon? Feedback please!

Joseph Gordon-Levitt confirmed for The Dark Knight Rises, who is next?

Joseph Gordon-Levitt has officially been confirmed to have a major role in The Dark Knight Rises, the next in the Batman series. It is said he will play the role of Alberto Falcone.
Hmmm! Anyone seeing a pattern here.  Heath Ledger, check.  Joseph Gordon-Levitt, check.  No, you don't see it?  Okay, so maybe it is only obvious to me.

Think back about ten years or so.  Remember a certain particular teen romance comedy?  Yup, I am talking about 10 Things I Hate About You.

That would mean in the fourth movie upcoming in the new Batman series, and we all know it is coming (it is just a matter of time, unless of course they decide it is time to reboot the series yet again) we might see Julia Styles or David Krumholtz.   In what roles, I have no idea.  Perhaps The Huntress and Calender Man respectively, long time of favorites of Batman fans.

Then again, they could always get Freddie Prinze Jr.  Awesome no?

Proper English - on tomorrow?

Lately I notice many people saying, "on tomorrow," or something similar.  Why?  Hello, proper English?

An example would be, "I am going to do that on today."   What the H-E-double hockey sticks!? Does that sound right to you?  Is that the English language we learned? Why would someone not just say, "I am going to do that today"?

Now, if for example, you were going to specify a later day in the week, I could understand, "I am going to work out on Wednesday."  "I am going to rehearse on the 23rd."  Those sound better.   The "on" though not always necessary in those situations, but still fits.

So if you catch someone saying "..on today," or "..on tomorrow" shake your head at them in disgust for me.  Thanks.

BMG Music

Does anyone remember BMG Music or Columbia House?

I was just thinking about how I got lots of music back before the days of being able to download songs online.

Mail order CD clubs were awesome
I had tons of CDs before I ever had Itunes.  How did I get all of them? The same way many people my age or older got them, through music clubs such as Columbia House and BMG Music.

We would sign up, select our 8 to 10 free CDs and the one to six full priced CDs we had to purchase,  send off along with the payment and shipping and handling, receive them, cancel, then join again later under a different name.  It was wonderful.

I wondered if these music clubs were still around so I went to their websites. I tried BMG Music, but the links came up to dead ends.  Next,  I typed www columbia house into my browser and sure enough they are still there.  But wait, they are now a dvd club.  Columbia house dvd anyone?

I guess the online music evolution really did kill their CD sales.  I imagine with all the stores selling used dvds and people now downloading movies it is only a matter of time before the dvd club goes the way of the dinosaurs as well.

I cannot say I really miss them that bad, but those sure were the good old days of getting lots of music without spending a fortune.  It almost felt like you were getting over on them.  Like you were pulling a fast one and the big companies were too stupid to even realize who was scamming who.

Who else remembers these wonderful music clubs?

Girls Scout cookies Thin Mints - I love them

I love Girl Scout cookies, particularly Thin Mints.

cookies of the gods
They are a gift from the heavens.  No, scratch that.  They are from beyond the heavens.

Those cookies are so good once I started eating some, and even though my stomach told me to stop, I could not stop stuffing the little delights into my mouth until the box was empty.  Thankfully another box was not in sight.

So if you happen to pass by some Girl Scouts selling some Thin Mints, please GET ME SOME!!! Please and thanks!

Update: Charlie Sheen suing Chuck Lorrie?

Charlie Sheenless 
Breaking news: Apparently Chuck Lorrie made Charlie Sheen the a$$hole he is today so Sheen is suing him in return.

Charlie Sheen feels his firing has nothing to do with his wild tirades against the Warner Bros studio and the Two and a Half Men producers.  He knows it had nothing to do with his partying with escorts, nor drinking and doing lots of recreational drugs.  Nope.

Charlie knows his treatment of women and his wild reputation are not what caused him to get the ax.  No.  He knows what the 411 is.  Chuck Lorrie just hates him.  Yup.  makes sense.

Good luck your lawsuit Charlie.  I am sure it won't get thrown out faster than you can say hooker.  Maybe you can sue Jon Stamos if he gets an offer to replace you on Two and a Half Men.

RIP Mike Starr

RIP Mike Starr
Mike Starr, another member of the great rock band Alice in Chains has passed away.

Starr played on Alice in Chains first two albums.  Drugs likely took him, as they did former AIC front man Layne Staley.

Are drugs part of the rock image? Yes.  Does it make it any less sad when we hear such news though? No.  Most of us really do not want to see someone burn out.  Fading away might not be graceful, but deep down we would all rather see music stars just ease into a less social existence than end up like a Kurt Cobain.

RIP Mr. Starr. May you and Mr. Staley put on a kick a$$ show for the man above.

Update: Charlie Sheen fired from Two and a Half Men

Recently I blogged about one of Hollywood's most level headed, down to earth actors.  That is right, I am talking about Charlie Sheen.

Well today the news broke that Charlie Sheen was fired from the hit CBS series Two and a Half Men.  Why would they do such a thing? Well obviously they are just evil, rich jerks who do not care about ratings or money as much as destroying the lives of a wonderful human being.  Mr. Sheen donates over half his salary to charity. Instead of partying and doing drugs like some major stars, he spends his time giving back to the community by working at soup kitchens and spending time with sick children in hospitals.

What? Wrong actor? Oops, never mind!

So what do you think of Charlie Sheen being fired from Two and a Half Men? Leave me feedback.
