I Got A Fever...

Z at his nirvana... the Hard Rock Cafe at the Foxwoods Casino in Ledyard, CT.
The guitar is THE guitar that Mountain used to record Mississippi Queen in 1969 and the cowbell is THE cowbell. HA! Beat that Blue Oyster Cult!
Z wins again!!!

The NEW Dan & Dave

Funny how short people's memories are? The recent Kobe & LeBron puppet campaign from Nike is a clear example of putting the cart before the horse... or NBA Superstar in the finals before the playoffs are done. Kobe is there. LeBron is not. But leading up to the finals it was all but written in stone it would be Kobe V LeBron for the title... too bad no one told the Orlando Magic and their coach - who, incidentally, looks like porn star Ron "The Hedgehog" Jeremy.

But this isn't the first time this "wishful corporate thinking" has happened -and FAILED-on such a grand, public scale. The last time was a campaign in 1992 by another shoe company, Reebok, starring Dan O'Brien and Dave Johnson two American decathaletes battling it out in Barcelona for the title of "World's Greatest Athlete". All the hype and money was put into... what exactly? One of them (Dan) not even qualifying for the Olympics. OOPS!

Good to see history repeating itself once again.

"I've Got a Stage 5 Clinger"

Bored Saturday night? Crash a wedding. Drinks. Food. Potential (*ah*hem*) companionship for the evening. Sounds like a good deal. And you don't even have to buy anything from Bed Bath & Beyond either. =)

Best New Show ???

Potentially the Greatest show EVER.... I give to you MAN VS. CARTOON.

Wile E. Coyote never caught the Roadrunner, despite an endless stream of gadgets from the Acme Corp. In MAN VS. CARTOON, truTV is ready to put some of those gadgets to the test. A crack team of scientists, engineers and mad inventors at New Mexico Tech will investigate the possibilities, such as whether a pair of rocket skates could work in real life or the actual accuracy of an anvil falling off a cliff onto a plate of birdseed situated on a big "X". AWESOME!

Pardon Me Boy Is This....

Either this Israeli woman is tremendously lucky or the most incredibly inept person on the planet. If you REALLY wanted to do yourself in and wanted to do it- not with the bullet- but by the bullet train, it would be extremely difficult NOT to successfully kill yourself.
Well she did it... survived that is. So now the question's....
did she succeed in failing to kill herself or fail at successfully killing herself?
I'll give you a moment to ponder.
Watch This.
