Abracadouchebags

"Hey, Pooty Poot, while we're wearin' these here wizard clothes, I should tellya your wife cast a Level-5 spell on my huge wand last night, he he. Like work, it was haaaaard."

Sorry, I saw that picture from the Asia Pacific summit this morning and that's the first thing that crossed my mind. It's always awesome when your mind goes to wizard sex between the American president and the Russian president's wife first thing in the morning.

In other news, I almost caught a screening of the new Guest/Levy vehicle For Your Consideration this weekend, which would have been awesome. I bought tickets online and got there a bit early, but when the hooker I hired to be my date showed up two minutes after the scheduled start, there were no seats left in the theatre. The bastards oversold it, and I had to get a refund (but no bump-like free ticket).

After a failed attempt to see Jamie Lidell at Webster Hall, we instead saw Will Ferrell pull a Punch Drunk Love Adam Sandler in Stranger Than Fiction. I can't quite put it into words, but I liked it. It was clever, the acting was tops and Dustin Hoffman's worth the price of admission alone. It's not the greatest movie you'll see this year, but it's got some new and cool cinema tricks, Buster Bluth is fantastically supporting in it, Maggie Gyllenhaal is smokin' and Emma Thompson is a thespian extraordinaire. Go see it.

In other other news, many sorries to my Michigan bretheren (quite literally, Red Cowboy went there). Regular Slack readers know I bleed Wildcat purple, but I've been a Wolverine fan forever and I think THE Ohio State should be hit with a North Korean missile some time soon. Hopefully we'll get a little re-match in 50 days and the maize and blue will avenge this loss. But OSU deserved that win, if for no other reason than it helped the student body learn how to count to 42.

Slack Quotation of the Day: One reason to watch the EPL Review Show on the Fox Soccer Channel every Sunday night, you get quotes like this one that preceded the Sheffield United v. Manchester United highlights, spoken in all seriousness: "Blades' keeper Paddy Kenny had his eyebrow bitten off during a midweek brawl but still played."

Slack Link of the Day: I missed this on Friday, but The Superficial shows us why you should still love Tina Fey -- or start liking her, Lozo -- and her never-ending honesty. She tells us why Paris Hilton is Roberto Garbaggio. [via the great Passion of the Weiss]

Slack Video of the Day: Great idea, Canadians..."A brand new Playstation 3 is purchased, and smashed in front of dozens of fanboys with a sledgehammer at Young and Dundas in Toronto." Check out this Smash My PS3 clip.

Slack Song of the Day: I've been singing the theme song from Tenacious D: The Pick of Destiny all weekend, gearing up for the movie's release this week. So this morning I'm feeling the D -- here's the ever-hilarious Double Team and Fuck Her Gently.

"No refunds," says her pimp puppet Frank. Whatever, I got free candy and soda from that strumpet at the Will Ferrell picture. Huzzah!

RobRon, you wanna hit up the D some time? Hey, you hitting up either RAQ on Friday or the MSMW on Saturday, or are you Biscoing all weekend like Ms. SuperDee here?

i actually watched SNL on E! yesterday only because the news was starting and i wanted to see if i was crazy.

it's UNFUCKBEARABLE. she tells a joke. no one laughs. she makes a face. amy repeats. tina repeats. this goes on for five minutes. then they cut to a "weatherman" who is amazingly less funny. again, tell me what her signature skit, her funniest moment was.

ASSSSSSSCAT or whatever was unwatchable too. i've seen her on the daily show and she brings nothing to the table.

if she looked like horatio sanz, no one would think twice about her. except for how funny it is that she looks like horatio sanz.

yo yo! i would love to hit up the D. maybe sunday? i'm going to DC tomorrow-fri afternoon. fri night is DSO for gabe's bday (then biscuits). saturday is biscuits. wasn't planning on raq or msmw but could be convinced to stop by for a bit.

someday you'll learn that going to see the biscuits is more than going to most other bands.

The Biscuits can eat me. We'll talk about the other shiite later...
