M.A.F. Day Recap & More

Yesterday was the 56th Annual M.A.F. Day. What is M.A.F. Day you ask? It is Movies, Alcohol & Food Day. My original intent was for folks to call out sick and come over as early as possible and hangout all day watching 'B' movies. I know calling out sick from work is a lot for people, but I feel it adds a little thrill to it. It is totally understandable if people cannot do that though. No hard feelings at all. It was a really fun day overall. Our mission of 'no drama, just relaxation' was accomplished. We got through about 6 movies. We watched 'The Last House on the Left', 'Cabin Boy', 'Caddy Shack', 'Big Lebowski' and 'Kentucky Fried Movie'. We only made it through half of 'Them!'. I don't know why we only watched half of it, but we needed a break and to get up & stretch. Then we sort of lost interest. It is an awesome movie though. Kim made some killer pulled pork & cole slaw, we had tons of stuff to drink and it was a lot of fun. My mind is already thinking of the next M.A.F. Day event and what we can watch. I do know that 'Monster Squad' and tacos are involved.

Does anyone else give a shit about Terrell Owens' reality show? I feel like he already had one because he was such a complete train wreck on his own.

Jessica Simpson sucks. She is on my list of people that should be moved to a desserted island and she has to fight her way off 'Lord of the Flies' style.

What the F?

I probably bitched about these things previously, but I don't care. If you do not like it get your blog then! Why do albums need to come out in 45 different versions? U2's album, the Pearl Jam 'Ten' reissue. Give me a break. Say it with me... r-e-c-e-s-s-i-o-n. Make these deluxe editions like $20 then. Not $60 or $90. That is so fucking stupid. I do not want any fancy poster or some used napkin Bono wiped his mouth with or a 'I heart Pearl Jam' bumper sticker. Give me something I can actually use. Maybe unreleased tracks or concert tickets? So I have to drop $60 on a deluxe edition CD and then $300 for tickets. Way to think of fans first. Kick my dog while your at it.

I think of all the sports leagues Major League Baseball players have the biggest egos and are the furthest from reality. Just admit you took steroids and move on. I am so sick of hearing about these morons. Your telling me 65 year old Roger Clemens is still in great shape and can throw 90 mph just because he is a hard worker? Give me a break. Mark McGwire just gained 45 lbs of muscle from changing his work out? I love these low life trainers and supposed 'friends' who have DNA samples, recipets, credit card numbers and any other sort of proof you need and these guys still deny it. So ridiculous.

Also, Joe Torre can say whatever he wants. He was thrown away and he has every right to make a book. Plus, it hasn't even come out yet and it involves a lot of people close to his years with the Yankees. He isn't the only one saying things about A-Rod or the management. Here is an idea to all those people who are upset by his allegations... read the book first and/or don't act like an asshole then!

City Folk

I can't believe is almost February. Where did the time go? We had an interesting weekend. We went to the Knicks game Friday night. Had dinner at Stout first. Thanks Ms. Waitress for not coming back to our table for 40 mins. We didn't have plans or anything. Maybe if I wore my business suit, trench coat and said 'bro' every 5 seconds we would have gotten service quicker? I love the city, but sometimes I just shake my head and don't get people. Do people look in the mirror before they leave the house? What is with those skinny jeans? What is comfortable and good looking about those? They look like pants you can't possibly fit in and the ass got stretched out. Then you got those clothes with the 80's neon colors on them. I didn't like neon, even when it was considered 'mint'. And why do people wear sunglasses inside? We were in the downstairs bar of Stout and it is dark & loud. Why would you possibly need sunglasses at that point in time? But other than that it was a good time. The Knicks won and I enjoyed my Jamaican Pork Burger. It was joyous.

Gate 77

We are going to the Knicks game tonight. Should be fun. Not sure who they are playing, but I love going to games at MSG. Just a little tip though, if you go to the Garden. By Gate 77, they pour the best Guinness in town. It is a little expensive, but they fill that sucker to the rim and it is bigger than a pint. From what I hear, a great steak sandwich is served at the same place. The Prime Rib is the name. Right by Gate 77. Do it.


Spicy Sweet Chili Doritos are the best!


Thank god it is Friday. If this week was an 80's chewable candy it was Bonkers. I need a beverage or 4. Who's with me? I was going to watch the NBC shows last night, but I was watching the Untouchables and I got sucked in. That is such a great flick. Sean Connery is awesome in it. You know what is really good though? A McDonald's sausage & egg biscuit. Yes, it is dreadful that I eat that stuff, but it is so good! Have you had one lately? I recommend it.

Fast Week

Sorry for the delay in writing. The week sort of got away from me. A lot has happened. Obama got sworn in. His wife got her wardrobe analyzed belief. Who cares who she is 'wearing'? With all the historical significance of the inauguration does it really matter what kind of fucking shoes she has on?

Lost was on last night and it was weak. Drinking games couldn't even make up for the fact that the episode showed us nothing. I have so much time invested in this show now I want to see what happens. I can't give up on it. I was close a few times, but I stuck it out. How has Vincent the dog not been eaten yet?

Listen to Your Gut

I knew I should have stayed home today.


Ever have one of those days when you feel like the clothing you own doesn't fit you right? Everything fit weird and/or had static electricity. I must have tried on 5 different t-shirts.

Random Thoughts 9

I was watching Tool Academy yesterday and something struck me as rather curious. Maybe the girlfriends of these 'tools' should have their own show too? I would call it something like Stupid Girlfriend Get the Point!

Best moment on Rock of Love: Bret tells one mattress back that she shouldn't take her clothes off if she didn't want to, but then off camera calls her a buzz kill for not taking her clothes off. He truly is a rock star. I really wonder why love has eluded him for this long?

Does anyone care about the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductions? Most of the people who vote for that are more grumpy & bitter than the Baseball Hall of Fame voters. Also, just change the name to the Music Hall of Fame. Madonna isn't rock... OK?

Ricardo Montalbán

I apologize for not posting this sooner. RIP to Ricardo. He passed away on January 14th. Everyone, raise your glasses and on the count of three say this with me...

One... two... three...


Joke of the Day?

Looking at that Boddingtons logo reminded me of a joke...

What kind of bees give milk?


Hahahahahahaha! Drum roll please... Uh oh, the Sandman is coming to take me off stage.

Random Thoughts 8

Since I complain about MTV a lot I must be watching it, right? Yes, I do watch these shows, but mainly because I am shocked that these morons are on TV. It is like seeing a really bad car accident on the highway. You try not to look, but you can't really help it. What the hell is that Double Shot of Love show? Who the hell are the Ikki twins? WHY? WHAT? HUH?

Never get bacon on Domino's Pizza. Don't ask... just not a good idea.

I hate those Ed Hardy & Von Dutch shirts. Most people have no clue who those people are. If you don't know, Wikipedia them. I also hate shirts that look like a spray can exploded on it. I just don't get it.

The plane that crashed (actually landed) into the Hudson was an absolutely amazing story. The pilot should definitely be praised. Incredible! But, are we still at the point where we have to mention terrorism every single time there is a crash, explosion or event? Not making light of 9/11 or anything, but I was reading Newsday, which is owned by Cablevision, which owns Newsday and they had to say that terrorism was not a factor right after they just said that birds were the cause of the engine failure. So pigeons work for Bin Laden now? Birds caused the emergency landing, but these are rogue birds. They are not affiliated with any terrorist groups of any kind? Please do not mention terrorism at all unless you know it is an act of terrorism. Even mentioning the 'T' word gets people going.

I think I got herpes just watching Rock of Love Tour Bus... is that bad?

I need a Lebowski.

Some Artwork

Here is a poster I did for my friends band. I love the old 'Fillmore' style posters. I did this all in Photoshop.


I am sick of hearing about these guys in the NFL constantly get into trouble and yet these teams take them back simply because they can catch a ball. I think the NFL needs a new slogan.

How about this... The NFL, everyone deserves nine chances.

Why don't those truck commercials they show during football say what they really mean. If you are a man and do not drive a super, heavy-duty, special toolbox, chrome step-up, hemi engine truck then you are a raging homosexual.

Anyone catch the Tool Academy last night? Best show ever created. I wonder who will win? Celebrity, MEGA, Matsuflex or the one they call Josh?

Saturday, January 10, 2009


I saw the news for a few seconds last night and I saw a very special report. Obama (who I voted for) was talking about he'd back a college football playoff system. Wow, important stuff. I have an idea though. How do I say this delicately...

Your Goal for the Night...

New section. I give you an idea for the night.

Your Goal for the Night...
Is to listen to Thin Lizzy's 1978 classic album 'Live and Dangerous' and to have at least 2 or 3 drinks. It is one of the greatest live albums ever recorded. I prefer a little lighting, a comfy chair and just listen the music. This is one of my favorite albums of all time.

Here is a little background on the album:

Don't have this album? I guess you can watch The Real World Brooklyn on MTV or some crap?

Side note:
Listen to the harmonica playing by Huey Lewis on 'Baby Drives Me Crazy'. Yes, that Huey Lewis.

Samich of the Day

The Gooch

1 Egg Scrambled
American Cheese
1 Scoop of Home Fries
Hot Sauce
On a Roll

This is a Scotty C original. There maybe other variations, but they're not Scotty C approved.

Jet Jaguar

This is the Jet Jaguar figure I bought a few weeks ago. I just like Jet Jaguar.

Scout = Elf

This is Scout aka. Scouter aka. Licky Browndog Floppytongue III. I need to laugh, so I posted this pic. Hope it does the same for you.


Does anyone on Long Island know how to merge? When I was driving this morning traffic was backed up and I figured there must be an accident. There was (of course) and it was in the left lane. So... why does everyone gun it in the left lane right up until the last possible moment before they should get over and then cut me off or block traffic so that the can get over? If you got over to begin with then it would be OK. I do not understand the trouble? I wish I could have one of those wall street tickers in my car that would repeat messages as I drove. It could say nice job dicko or way to not pay attention asshole! You know, really positive stuff. Or have a James Bond type license plate that rotated messages as well. That way you can curse people out without saying a word. I am going to invent that.

What in the World?

What the hell is this Bromance show? Seriously, what is this place coming to? I have a lot of guy friends and I have once said in my life lets hang out... Bromance style? That is the stupidest fucking thing I have ever heard. Who are these clowns who go on the show? People wonder why our country is going to shit. Look no further than Bromance.

No matter if you put sausage, ham or turkey on a sandwich or all three it just isn't bacon.

VH-1's 100 Greatest Hard Rock Songs

Whoever voted on this list is on some serious drugs. I do not want to rant like I usually do, but this list is utter crap. There is no way in hell that Evanescence, Velvet Revolver, Marilyn Manson or Andrew W.K. have any songs better than Jethro Tull's 'Aqualung'. That song is better than anything any of those clowns have ever put out. How is that even possible? Why is Europe even on this list? The fucking 'Final Countdown' really? 'Born to be Wild' was #53 and Poison's 'Talk Dirty to Me' was #40? Green Day was #33. What the fuck! It is apparent by this list that no one seems to understand what Hard Rock is. Plus, they put 'Hey Joe' as the only song by Hendrix. No 'Fire' or 'Purple Haze'. I was surprised that no one put the Jonas Brothers on this list? The way things are going lately, you never know? Learn some history and figure out what Hard Rock is or use a different name for this "definitive list". 

By the way... Creed still sucks.

Review: Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Annex in NYC

The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame has an Annex in NYC now. It opened up in December and it is located at 76 Mercer Street. We went there this past Saturday afternoon. OK, first things first... is it worth the ticket price? NO. I even had a special coupon that made the tickets $19.99 each (plus tax) instead of the usual $24.50. It is a small place and I did not like some of the memorabilia they displayed. Do we really need to see Elton John's sun glasses from a few years ago? Michael Jackson's gloves & jacket from Bad? Are those rock & roll artifacts? There were several good things about the museum, but for the size of the place the price does not add up.

The Annex does have a section that focuses on New York and the different genres that have blossomed here. There is a model of Manhattan and the surrounding boroughs with computers attached to so different musical landmarks throughout. When you select a location on the computer a corresponding light blinks to show you where in the city it took place. This was a very cool feature. They have multiple items from CBGB including the awning. Not the original awning because that was stolen in the 80's, but the one that was on when it closed it's doors. The Clash exhibit was very good. It featured a lot of various show posters and hand written lyrics. The Clash are one of my favorite bands and I felt like it was a good representation of their diversity and importance.

Overall, it was a good visit, but $24.50 for a small museum is not worth it. We went through the museum throughly in under 2 hours. I wish the Annex only focused on the tremendous influence and unparalleled importance this city has made on music history.

In other news Kim & I went to Lombardi's Pizza on Spring Street after museum and that was so worth the wait and money!

Best Show Ever?

Did anyone catch Rock of Love Bus last night? I did... holy shit! What is wrong people? First off Bret Michaels refers to himself as a rock star living the rock star life more than anyone ever! That is a good drinking game. Whenever someone says rock, drink. That is all he does. I rock, I live the rock star life, when I am not rocking, I rock. Be quiet already. We get it. You rock (not really). I understand without you telling me every 7 seconds. Also, lets be honest... how does this man still have genitalia that works? Seriously? I am convinced he has no hair. Those bandana's and hats have wigs attached to them. Plus, the women on this show are insane. Fake boobs and bleached blonde hair is a prerequisite I guess? I felt dirty just looking at some of these girls. The best part was that one train wreck put a test tube shot in the "private" area of another chick on the first day and they both got kicked off and neither understood why? Priceless. This show is so mindless and a calamity it is hysterical. It makes me feel better about myself. Thanks VH-1.

I don't understand all these rehab shows that are out now? The people on the show act surprised when they are criticized or yelled at. What did you think was going to happen? What the hell is that Confessions of a Teen Idol show all about? Why is he entire cast of Bay Watch on it? Do these guys really need help or do they want the money and the "attention" that comes with being on this show? Hmm, I wonder...

Finally... I got to give the Knicks some love. Awesome game last night. I got hope. They showed some life in the 4th quarter and kept up the momentum. David Lee and Wilson Chandler played great.
