Glee... another show for FOX to cancel

I just got a chance to sit and watch the pilot of Glee. I for one loved it. I immediately began to flashback to choir competitions, shiny dresses, clip-on bowties, and the like. What made me enjoy it so much was that the characters where real... Click here to see my post on the Real High School Musical. The sneak preview was a great idea... I loved that the show had song&dance numbers... it's also interesting that it's an hour-long comedy (which are few and far between.) Knowing FOX, because I liked it, it will probably only last for a few weeks before they cancel it. I wonder, are there enough nerds out there to keep the show on the air?

Since when has Jane Lynch been such a hot commodity in Hollywood?

Epic Fail: Denver Nuggests vs WWE

Double dose of fail coming at ya! 

So here's a hilarious article I found this afternoon. Of course I should be studying, but this is too good. So the WWE booked the Pepsi Center in Denver back in August for Monday Night Raw on Memorial Day. The Nuggest beat the Dallas Mavericks in the Western Conference Semifinals and will be hosting Game 4 of the conference finals on Monday. THE SAME DAY! Source: AP

WWE spokesman Robert Zimmerman said the company reserved the Pepsi Center on Aug. 15 and had already sold more than 10,000 tickets for its the Monday Night Raw event... He said the organization expects a sellout, with tickets ranging from $20 to $70... But the Nuggets are planning to play Game 4 of the NBA's Western Conference finals against the Los Angeles Lakers on Monday at the Pepsi Center, the team's home floor... Monday Night Raw draws almost 6 million viewers weekly, making it one of the top rated programs on cable television, Thomison said..."The conflict has to be resolved very soon," Thomison said. "Monday Night Raw is a very valuable asset to the company..."The WWE said its crews will be in Denver on Monday night, even if it means putting on a show in a parking lot.

Personally I think it's great, figure something out quickly though. Now that all my Monday programs are off the air, I watch Wrestling on Mondays...

I say they move Raw outside the arena, weather permitting and they do an outdoor show. It would be amazing.

Meet the Spy leaked

Thanks to a very crafty person over at Valve, the movie trailer for Team Fortress 2's Meet the Spy has been leaked. Or so they want us to believe. Any way, it's amazingly funny and here it is... no doubt for a limited time before it's removed from youtube. enjoy

I love the Orange Box... What's your favorite game from The Orange Box, mine's Portal.

Bloc Party Take-Away Show

I just saw one of the most amazing videos on vimeo... Kele from Bloc Party was coaxed into singing a song outside of a Paris pub. Singing with a sore throat he performed an accoustic version of 'This Modern Love,' an amazing love ballad. It is incredible... That's all I can say, I can't do it justice... Just watch.

Bloc Party, 'This Modern Love' - A Take Away Show from La Blogotheque on Vimeo.

It was on an October night, in Paris. We went to a pub, made some noise outside with a German band. Kele, Bloc Party's singer, went out. We asked him to sing. He said no. We asked again, he said 'yes but'. Then, we asked again...

Here it is, just one song, an old song, played acoustic for the first time. From Bloc Party, a Take Away Show.
The whole story is here :,4511
Produced by La Blogothèque
Directed by Colin Solal Cardo
Sound by François Clos

Here's the regular version of 'This Modern Love' performed live, you be the judge. Which is better?

Seeing them live in 2007 was one of the best concerts I've ever been to, hands down. I think I have almost every one of their songs...

Monday Youtube Theatre

Sometimes when you get stuck on youtube you find great little gems... 
Today's theme is News Bloopers: 

Up first is A Van crashes into Studio During News. Enjoy 

Up next is a weatherman's on-air bout with the runs.

Also a personal favorite... News10 Halloween Prank.

God isn't that dude a douche? He just keeps dogging these women... If I was one of the I would totally give him a sack-tap.

My Own Obituary

So I'm not dead... But for my one summer course I need to get my diploma. So to take time off from reading 2 textbook chapters A DAY, I had to write my own Obituary... Morbid, I know. Still, it was really fun to do (Even though the entire process was hurried and hindered by the professor.) Here it is. 

Patrick M. Barker, an Indianapolis, Ind. native who made a career out of traveling to and from China, died when the plane he was on fourteen days ago crashed in the ocean a thousand miles away from Fiji. He was 22. Mr. Barker, a graduate of Pike High School in Indianapolis, Ind. and Butler University in Indianapolis, Ind., traveled to China multiple times in the past six years. He kept a personal blog about his multiple journeys to China and wrote stories and personal anecdotes, or what he called “[his] daily misadventures.” His blog had a cult following.He is survived by his father and mother, Richard and Tanya of Indianapolis Ind.; and older brother, Thomas of Los Angeles, CA. Services will be held May 28th at St. Monica’s Catholic Church. There will be a wake followed by a screening of the film Road to Morocco, one of Patrick’s most liked films. The wreckage of Flight 815 has not been recovered; and the investigation into the cause of the crash that claimed all 132 passengers, including Mr. Barker, is ongoing.

Notice the little LOST references... I did that just for the nerds in the audience. I talk about this blog in it too. Gotta give it a little bit of truth.

Old Blog Flashback: Boxers or Briefs?

Here's the last of the non-depressing emo postings from the old blog. I'm finally shutting it down. Enjoy.
What's Your Flavor? 
There is something to be said about people and their choice in underwear.  It's safe to say that the undies can define the person who wears them.
  • Briefs (Whitey Tighty's) - These are normally worn by white people, but I used to wear them before I reached the age of reason.  They are the easiest to slip on, and offer protection for the twins (triplets in some cases)
  • Boxers - Boxers are for those people who like the feel of free balling, but are too afraid to them hang out, for obvious reasons that I shouldn't have to go into (i.e. pubes caught in zipper, or other things)  These come in various style, colors and designs, but they offer nothing in the ways of support.  
  • Boxer-Briefs - As the name suggests, these are an amalgamation of boxers and briefs.  They have the length of boxers, but have the protection of the fabric and design of briefs.  They offer protection for the twins, while still maintaining a small range of movement.
  • Speedos - For those who like to flirt, have the body for these or just like the feel of barely any fabric.  These undies are smaller that briefs, and lose most of the protection of the briefs.  There is always the chance of hanging brains at any moment.  Another thing...sometimes these affect the gooch (the area between the balls and ass.)
    I have it from a "reliable source" from the fairer sex who enlightened me to female underwear.
  • Granny Panties - My reliable source tells me that these larger and cumbersome undergarments are almost a faux pox...they cannot be worn under pants.
  • Panties - These could be compared to Men's briefs, as they are the normal wears for females.  The are very comfortable for the wearer. On a scale of 1 to 10 they could be considered an 8, 9 depending on the fabric.
  • Thongs and G-Strings - Being a guy, I wasn't expecting alot from Thongs in the comfortable department, but apparently they are immensely comfortable.  My reliable source says once they are on, you don't realize they are on...and they don't constrict any parts of the female anatomy.  Some outfits are a little awkward (example: there are thongs where all of the fabric is tied in the middle of the sacrum by a metal ring.)
I guess the question to ask yourself, is 'What type of underwear do I wear, and how does it make me feel.' I personally wear boxer-briefs for their protection and comfort...I could care less about the style.  And whoever said 'It's not whats on the outside, its whats on the inside that counts' wasn't talking about underwear.  Underwear shouldn't make the man or the woman for that matter.
So one thing I overlooked in the original... commando. Of course I should have investigated the people of the freeballing persuasion but I decided I didn't want to know who they were... Nothing's changed. I guess comfort and style in underware is just seen through the Browneye of the beholder. (See what I did there)

Interestingly the song I was currently listening to as I wrote the post was Sisqo's The Thong Song... if that isn't the definition of apropos I don't know what is.

Thanks for the Memories.

Here's a little tribute, to all the college memories I've collected over the past four years. To all of you who made the last four years of my life worth living, thank you... Enjoy.

Playing this song along with it makes the whole experience. Watch it here on Youtube set to music.

My Trekky Crush

I'm in full on nerd out mode right now... I got back from a Thursday night showing of Star Trek and immediately hit up IMDB. Why, because I couldn't figure out who the busty green starfleet cadet was. SPOILER ALERT>>> Kirk makes it with the green girl in a definite homage to the orion slave girl from the above picture (Not that big of a spoiler, but hey, fair warning.) I was maybe 8 or 9 when I first watched the Orion Slave Girl scene, I loved it then and I love it now. So the woman turned out to be no other than Diora Baird; when I put two and two together I started laughing hystarically at 2 in the morning. I know I've already featured her, but how could I resist. Enjoy...
As I waited to leave before seeing Star Trek I watch Star Trek: Nemesis... I was definitely in the trekky mood. Star Trek definitely breaks the odd-numbered Star Trek movie curse.

Demotivate the Week

Well it's the last week of College, minus one summer course that I'm ignoring for the moment. As a tribute to the upcoming end of my studies I think I've picked a series of Demotivators that are definitely apropos.


It's all happening so freaking fast... real world here I come.
