Quick Hitters and Random Thoughts
nice to have the gang at Greendale back. As soon as I saw Theo Huxtable
busting out some MotownPhilly I was set. Missed those Human Beings.
Comedy Central to host Community reruns next year?! Nice.
a cast that includes the likes of Dustin Hoffman, Dennis Farino, and
Nick Nolte the standout, to me, in Luck is John Ortiz who plays the
trainer Escalante. I like this show more and more each week. The horse
racing scenes have been spectacular. Sadly as they’re filming the second
season a third horse had to be euthanized. And the show went quickly
from halting production to cancelling it permanently.
Eastbound let’s go for some laughs next week because the last couple of
episodes have been depressing as hell. Lily Tomlin as Kenny’s mother
should be nice and I liked the way they shot that reveal of her teasing
the whole way at the Bowl-A-Rama. As sad as some scenes were there was
nothing more cringe-inducing than when Kenny referenced the unspeakable
act in Requiem for a Dream. Brrrr.
Can we please have Stevie wear a wig and get some fake eyebrows on him? Please.
--I’m Team Dunkin’ Donuts unless that team takes a road trip to China because shredded pork Dunkin’ Donuts, just no.
--Let’s see now, Spartacus, Ilythia, Lucretia, Seppia, Ashur? vs. Glaber. Not looking to good for you Glaber.
the one hand, stealing is bad. On the other hand, clean clothes are
good. So no, I don’t know where I stand on the Tide stealing epidemic.
--Dark Shadows trailer, uh, no. Now Cabin in the Woods, I’m down with.
dine and dashes and then there’s just being stupid. This falls into the
latter category as four guys walked into Vue de Monde in Melbourne. As
its name implies it’s got a pretty view seeing as how it’s 55 floors up
and all and has an awesome looking balcony. So these four guys each
order a Negroni and then upon finishing them they base jump off the
balcony. This story has a sad ending though, all four men lived.
--I was just thinking to myself that one Garbage Pail Kids movie was never enough.
--I still don’t know why anyone would want a f’n cupcake out of a machine. But hey knock yourself out people.
Zealand is the home of my favorite Jemaine and now my favorite pizza promotion. None of that stuffed crust or cheese stuffed inside cheese
stuffed inside a crust that’s wrapped in bacon. Nah, the promo at Hell’s
Pizza is Pizza Roulette. Order a whole pizza and one of those slices
will have two drops of ghost pepper sauce. Sweet. Their tagline: “It
doesn’t cost, but someone pays.” Indeed.
Your move Pi Pizza Truck. If you have not had a 420 slice from them you're missing out.
--Occasionally at bars I’ll
stumble across what our forefathers referred to as a “newspaper.” I was
reading some Astros notes and thought this kind of summed things up from
Steve Campbell’s little notes section that appeared Monday:
“(Jack) Cust is 0-20 this spring, though he and Brad Mills have noticed an improvement in the quality of his at-bats.”
much can get me to click through a slideshow, but I’ve always been fond
of Mary Camden. This from W Magazine or W or Dub-Mag. Just look.
those wacky English and their crazy ways. Like this whole driving on
the left side of the road and first tweeting out when missing kids have been found before telling the parents. Had to be weird for mum to check
her twitter feed to see the police indeed found her daughter so she
replied, “Has my daughter been found.” The police responded in kind,
“yes an officer will be in touch or call 101 and they will update and
return her. thank you.” Twitter rulz.
--I’m not sure which NCIS
promo we’ll see a million times during tournament coverage this weekend,
but it can’t be worse than the one last weekend showing Jamie Lee
Curtis and Mark Harmon sucking face.
--What kind of true Juggalo
runs to his school’s administrators to complain about some guys
harassing him for payment of tattoos? I guess the kind of Juggalo who
didn’t bother to tell the person who tattooed him exactly how to spell
Juggalo since the side of this 16-year-old’s back says “Juggallo.” The
kid never paid and so this 22-year-old winner at life known as George
Doyle started the harassment. Apparently Georgey fed this kid some
alcohol a few months ago until he agreed to get some tats. Yeah, you
best have some license if you’re going to be putting a needle onto
someone. George doesn’t. That’s assault and battery with a deadly weapon
and illegal tattooing. At least the kid can tell people that it's cool because Coolio has a misspelled "Jugalo" tat on him.
--Rest assured that during your next
trip to Vegas you will be able to eat at Flavor Flav’s House of Flavor.
So you have that going for you though his first restaurant was only open four months so you may want to move up that trip.
--Despite serving green ketchup
all weekend Burger King has fallen behind Wendy’s in sales volume among
hamburger chains. To put it in perspective just how far McDonald’s is in
front of both. Wendy’s 2011 sales = $8.5 billion. Burger King = $8.4
billion. McDonald’s = $32.5 billion. Among restaurant chains period
Subway checks in behind McDonald’s at $11.4 billion. Credit for this is
mostly attributed to Jay Glazer and Michael Strahan.
ever stand at the urinal and look down and see a camera phone reaching
out from underneath a neighboring stall recording your “business”? Me
neither, but I usually try to avoid convenience store bathrooms. I don’t
think I’m missing out. As for this freak’s excuse that it’s all part of
his elaborate wiping routine, well uhhhh...good luck with that.
Questions, comments or if it took you far too long to visit Pondicheri,
but you’ll make up for lost time with more Meatless Monday visits…
