Happy Hamster Day

buy me This here is my most favorite album of all time. The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders From Mars. My friend Kevo bought me the original vinyl version when we lived together.

I would venture to say that the overwhelming majority of music worth listening to these days has at least a bit of artistic origin in one of Ziggy's eleven brilliant tracks. I hear Coldplay in Five Years. I hear the Lips in Soul Love and Starman. I hear alt-country in It Ain't Easy. And I hear one of the greatest rock songs ever in Suffragette City.

This record has touched lots of great stuff.

In this, this record is like the Hamster, my friend, Kevin Still.

He likes to touch people.
kevin touching me

Men, women, children; indiscriminate is the Hamster, towards those he touches.

So here's to you Kevin. Touching people. It's what you do.
kevin still touching me

Happy Birthday.

Funny/Not Funny: The Office Season Premiere

Dwight's "False!", Creed saying that "a man or two might have slipped in there" and the final five minutes will bring me back next week. Other than that, the writers are treading dangerous ground. I told my wife after the season finale that a serious plot string tied into a comedy spreads like an infection and eventually kills it. I also, in fact, guaranteed the scene of Pam's fiancee crying. Awkward. And not the funny kind. The Jim and Pam plot line is quickly turning this show from one my wife and I enjoy thoroughly to one my wife watches with her girlfriends. So, for the good of us all...






Look maybe Jiff or Bobby or Tim or Stevie or Moljr or any number of you who know much more about screenwriting than I do can help me out here, but what is the logic of taking a formula that was (1) very funny and (2) won you an Emmy, and tossing it? And I'd like to believe I'm not just pissed about a romantic story line in general, but rather a story line that CHANGES THE MOOD OF THE WHOLE SHOW!!

PS- my wife is going to be furious with me on this one. She loved every moment of that embrace.

I wouldn't want to be accused of over-reacting, but that win last night propels LA to the Series. And brings peace to the Middle East.

Space Station Filled With Foul Odor

Sep 18, 8:11 AM (ET)


HOUSTON (AP) - International space station astronauts pulled an alarm and donned protective gear Monday after smelling a foul odor that turned out to be an unknown vapor, NASA said.

"Things are calming down," NASA spokesman Kelly Humphries said.

The three astronauts put on gloves and goggles after noticing "some kind of vapor, primarily a bad smell," Humphries said.

Initial reports said there was light smoke aboard the orbiting lab 220 miles above Earth, but Humphries later said there was never any smoke.

Reports also indicate that just prior to and during the appearance of the mysterious vapor, Doug puttered around sheepishly avoiding eye contact.

For Sean: My Steve Irwin Post

Steve Irwin has died. If he knew not the Lord this means that he is currently spending his eternity in hell and by that I mean Petsmart.

If, however, he in fact knew the Lord he went straight to heaven where he was immediately mauled by a Jesus Tiger and killed.

The Brawl 2: A Song For Awesome Meaness

The followup to last year's smash hit, The Brawl, The Brawl 2: A song For Awesome Meaness , pulls no punches and pushes audiences to the threshold of any and all common decency that might happen to be left in the post Snakes on a Plane world.

"This movie ate me alive...and that's a big mothef#$$ing needle!", exclaims Moljr.
