Cerebro Frito

It's Friday, it actually feels like a Saturday, I'm fairly fried after a long week, I'm off on vacation after today for at least the next week, I have lots of shit to do before this much-deserved respite, I've gotta sprint out to Lawn Gisland again tonight for a wedding rehearsal dinner, our pets heads are falling off...

So in lieu of any strong to quite strong rhetoric or uninteresting posts about the Yankums or Phish this morning, allow me to point you to this ridiculous article that contains the following elements: China, heroin-soaked women's panties, a girl named Wang, the unintended punny phrase "Wang was arrested after a tip-off," and a semi-morbid turn at the end about her potential punishment.

Hey Wang, I think this country is restricted, so don't tell 'em you're carrying heroin-soaked panties!

Slack Explanation of the Day: Some of you may have noticed I took down the Floyd Landis "Life Cycle" suicide post from yesterday... Please note my opinion on the matter has not changed, and I still feel the same way today I did when I posted it. I'll debate you suckas 'til the cows come home (and commit suicide in the pasture). But the sentiment of the piece was really not in the spirit of this here rag. We're a fun-loving bunch, not unlike Marky Mark's friends, and that thing had no place on Slack. If you want to debate, post something on your own blog and let's get it goin'. Thanks, MGMT.

Slack Link of the Day: Deputy Girardin found this absolute gem of a piece, a hilarious article by Cocaine called "When This Meth Thing Blows Over, You'll Come Crawling Back" from The Onion.

Slack Video of the Day: P-Noonan over at The Electric Commentary sent this badboy over last night -- Leonard Nimoy singing a strange tune called Ballad of Bilbo Baggins. One may think this song kinda makes him look like a Douche Baggins, but I think the joke's on us.

Slack Song of the Day: Another Friday mix from the good people at StreamStash, this time just from the "R" section -- God Bless the Child (Richie Havens), Ripple (Rick Danko), Photograph (Ringo Starr), Sailing Shoes > Hey Julia > Sneakin' Sally Thru the Alley (Robert Palmer), and The In Crowd (Ramsey Lewis).

If we're like Marky Mark and his friends, does that mean they're going to make an Entourage-like show about us? I think they should. "Blog Buddies": We may get into passionate arguments about whether married guys are happy and content or pussy-whipped and neutered, but deep down we care about each other. When Seth Green keeps posting comments here, telling Ace to say "What up" to his girlfriend, the rest of us will be ready to brawl with Green's posse.

Put us on Showtime in the time slot after "Weeds." It's a can't miss.

If I'm ever in the news, I hope the headline will be "Chubby Man Accused of Cocaine-Soaked Boxer Briefs."

It's good to have goals.

Blog Buddies would be cancelled after about 13 minutes on air. I have this vision of Pig Vomit running down the halls and yelling for the production truck to take it off the air. It'd be terrible.

Unless Al gets arrested for cocaine-soaked boxer briefs, in which case we may have a huge gay following, and then ultimately, success. First the gays, then the teenage girls, then everyone...fuck, I think I stole that from Sex & the City. I suck.

Danny, are you really gonna play that game? It gets boring after awhile, and trust me, you're gonna think a lot less of me when you realize how little I have to say that's original. And, shit, are you goin' with just full quotes or the paraphrases as well? 'Cuz you missed a whole line in there. But really, don't be that guy. Only Dave Matthews fans call out the obvious ones...

Am I missing something, MDS? Was Marky Mark the inspiration for Entourage? Is Kevin Dillon's character supposed to represent Donnie Wahlberg? I've never been all that into Entourage, but if this is true, I'm going to start watching it. Maybe.

Goddamn, I love that Robert Palmer jam ("Hey Julia" really gets me). I never realized that "Sneakin' Sally" was actually an oldies tune...I was driving from Philly to NYC in my mom's phat-ass Taurus and it came on, thus blowing my mind.

Did you know this, Ace? Not about my mom's Taurus, but about "Sneakin' Sally"?

in america, first you get the gays, then you get the power, then you get... the women.

I know about your mom's Taurus, and of course I'm familiar with the Sneakins of Sneakin' Sally. In fact, in my frivilous Katrina post from last year I think I mentioned that Allen Toussaint chained himself to the fairground instead of evacuating, and in that line I think I mentioned he is the writer of said song. He's cool. But Palmer's cooler, especially because he's got the Meters and Little Feat backing him on the album. The sickness of that album haunts my dreams forever.

And hey, D-Noonan, I just realized my comment seemed a little harsh...but that was my "playful" tone, not my "I hate you" tone. Please accept this tone, and all shall be coo de lah.

Jes, Mulgrew, my suspicion has been confirmed. From this Katrina post, here's a graf mentioning Allen T & SS: "Will the bead industry take a serious hit or will they re-name them anal beads and sell 'em to porn shops? What about the Jazzfest sound stages? Did Allen Toussaint actually leave New Orleans or did he chain himself to the fairgrounds? Shouldn't this hurricane have been named Sneakin' Sally?"

Yes, dhodge, "Entourage" is loosely based on Mark Wahlberg's early days as Marky Mark, complete with the older brother who was once famous but now down on his luck. Wahlberg is executive producer of the series. Put the first season on your Netflix list and you and the missus will have some quality entertainment. (I assume you don't have HBO.)

Oh, but don't tell Ace you enjoyed watching a show with your wife. He's an immature kid who doesn't believe in the sanctity of marriage like we do. (huh-huh, I said "titty.")

Thanks for the wicked awesome synopsis, MDS. I once heard someone say that Entourage is the guy's version of Sex & the City. I drop that line at cocktail parties when I want to sound sophisticated.
