Guest-Blogging is the New Blogging, Vol II
Mulgrew asked me to contribute a few words on his blog is his absence, so that's what I've been doing all morning. Oh right, and working, I was totally working my arse off. Here's a link to the piss-poor crapola I just threw up over there, and do me a favor, save the righteous indignation about how I've been writing on every blog on the world wide web except this one.
I just totally reminded myself of the scene in Desperado where Tarantino tells that horribly awesome story about the guy pissing everywhere except the glass. I love that story. I love Tarantino. I love that movie. I love lamp. Too easy on that last one? Probably.
Slack Link of the Day: Everyone else is covering this Conan story, so I'll join in the fun -- "Two nights ago Conan O’Brian had a comedy sketch about NCAA Mascots and one of them was the “Horny Manatee” and there was this really goofy costumed actor doing some silly dance in front of a lap top. At the end of the sketch Conan says 'You can see this at www.hornymanatee.com.'
The next day the NBC legal and standards department calls him and says because he mentioned a fake web address they were obliged to buy it. So for the next 10 years, at $159, Conan O’Brian’s show owns the domain of HornyManatee.com." (Thanks AGU for the tip)
Slack Blog Link of the Day: A late addition to this post that I forgot to attach earlier -- check out Ahren's latest two-part adventure, first dogging the shit out of Pedro Gomez, and second ripping to pieces some poor schmuck that tried to defend Gomez. I can't stand Gomez, so I'm totally with Ahren's assholeness here...I mean, Pedro has one job to do, to tail Barry Bonds and report every move he makes, and yet he does it so poorly, with no journalism skills whatsoever, that I can't imagine how many photos he has of ESPN higher-ups engaged in crazy amounts of ass sex. Must be Caligula kind of shit.
Slack Video of the Day: A blog called DoCopenhagen has posted The Top 50 Videos of 2006 -- I've never heard of most of these tunes, but it's cool beans.
Slack Song of the Day: Ween's Piss Up a Rope, studio version.
