Collection of Links

An awful night of sleep begets an awful morning post.

Between the Yank'ums playing on the West Coast and the return of my 6 am wake-up calls for work, I can barely keep my eyes open this morning. Still, we welcome the resurgence of Jason Giambi and we now begin the Slack LaLane campaign for A-Rod's MVP Award. We do not enjoy this 6 am business. So, in lieu of coherent thought, here are some good mid-morning links...

Slack "Good News, Good Times" Story of the Day: As Ethan mentioned sometime this morning, Academy Award winner Charlize Theron joins the cast of Arrested Development for five episodes to play Jason Bateman's love interest when the third season debuts.

Not a bad idea, although I actually liked the original idea for Season Two that never came to fruition: While George Michael was madly in love with his cousin Maeby (an angle they've thankfully revived), the producers toyed around with the idea of bringing in Justine Bateman to play her real brother's love interest on the show, in a hilarious twist to teach George Michael not to play around with family.

Slack Videos of the Day: These need no introduction --

1. Grandma Goes Down Hard
2. Boy Meets Rubber Ball
3. "It Hit You Twice" (wait for the slow motion shot)

Slack "Can I Finish" of the Day: "CNN meteorologist Chad Myers 'flipped out' on Daybreak anchor Carol Costello at 4:32am, according to several e-mailers. 'She started to interrupt him and he yelled at her...and threw his papers to the floor. They later pretended it was in jest but it appeared to be a genuine outburst.', according to Media Bistro."

Slack Rumor of the Day: As I just posted up on the Live Music Blog, rumors have started to circulate about a Green Apple Music Festival. From April 20-23, 2006, NYC will play host to 25 shows in 15 venues, all leading up to the 6th Annual Jammy Awards. I hope this isn't just a cruel joke, because it has the potential to be one of the greatest weekends ever. Is this for real? Hopefully, here's the website.

Slack Song of the Day: 5/11/78 at the Springfield (MA) Civic Center is often referred to as the Dead's Mescaline Show, probably because every member of the band got loaded up on it and hit the stage (at least according to legend). Well, you can tell they're on something, especially in this kickass Dancin' in the Streets, complete with assorted giggling and howling.

And click here to stream the rest of this show, which includes a sweet Werewolves of London (Bobby dons a werewolf mask, though you can't see it) and a cool Lazy Lightening > Supplication. Woooo!

It was a good day to have a lot of streaming tunes to listen to. Lot's of boooooooooooring reading.

the kid who knocked over grandma has a sick shot - that shit was from mid-field with his left foot.

Yeah, I was definitely more impressed with the kick than the shot to Granny's head. But man, she takes a nice dive tot he dirt.

Also, someone just sent me the video of the weatherman fighting the anchor -- I guess it doesn't work on the link I provided. If anyone wants it and knows my e-mail address, feel free to let me know and I'll send it over.

At the end of Boy Meets Rubber Ball, does a kid say, "do it to me"? Sounds like it, which indicates that they were just having a little fun and not trying to hurt anyone.
