I don't normally like old people, but...

I think this old man is great. I wish more old people were like him.

German minx

So this happened...

if you could murder anyone and get away with it...

I would choose Jimmy Buffett.

MTV needs a new name now

LONG gone are the days of MTV actually playing music videos. And now, the network's last program that actually aired new music videos or basically anything related to music at all, is coming to a close. That's right, TRL will air its finale on November 18th.

And just to make sure it is dead and buried, they've invited a whole host of unbelievably shitty performers to be a part of it. Read about it here.

Just for your pleasure I've compiled some of my favorite music videos throughout the years - enjoy...

Dire Straits "Money for Nothing"

Bone Thugs 'n Harmony "Crossroads"

The Chemical Brothers "Believe"

Dio "Holy Diver"

Notorious B.I.G. "Sky's the Limit"

The Pharcyde "Drop"

The White Stripes "Dead Leaves and the Dirty Ground"

'Ol Dirty Bastard "Baby I Got Your Money"

The Talking Heads "Once in a Lifetime"

Van Damme is alive!

Yes, you heard that right - Jean-Claude "The Muscles from Brussels" Van Damme is alive and in has a new movie coming out. And not just another shitty action movie, but one that kind of looks good - a biopic of sorts. Check it out:


I'm assuming your eyes were drawn to the focal point of this picture first, as well...

I mean I seriously couldn't see anything but breasts at first.  

Then I thought that it's sad that Kim Kardashian is still wearing the outfits that she wore on Dancing With the Stars. She must sit at home every Monday night with a box of kleenex and a handful of Xanex, staring at the television waiting for Brooke Burke or Susan Lucci to break a bone so that then they could feel the pain that she's going through because there's already one Paris Hilton in the world and America doesn't need another famous for no reason rich girl clogging up their television sets.

That's when I realized it wasn't Kim Kardashian at all, but some crazy woman named Katie Price. She's British. And that explains everything.

Some exciting shizz

- Emmy-award winning and instant classic show 30 Rock is starting its 3rd season this Thursday! If you can't wait that long, NBC has a preview (practically the entire episode) on their website. In case you weren't already convinced, Tina Fey is a genius. Watch the new episode here.

- One of my favorite books of all time, The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test, is being turned into a movie. Director Gus Van Sant (To Die For, Good Will Hunting, Psycho, Paranoid Park) is heading up the production on the film. Read more about it here.

- Dr. Pepper made some kind of bet with the United States that they would give every American a free Dr. Pepper if Guns 'n Roses releases their new album before 2009. Well, they've done it - and Dr. Pepper is keeping their side of the bet. Find out about your free Dr. Pepper here.

- One hit wonder band MGMT is continuing to hit it big with their only song, "Time to Pretend," as there are an endless amount of often hilarious remixes to it. Check them out here.

- In what can only be described as AMAZING, Crispin Glover has signed on to play a part in Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland (also starring Johnny Depp, Anne Hathaway and of course, Helena Bonham Carter). You may know Crispin Glover from such classics as Back to the Future, What's Eating Gilbert Grape, Nurse Betty, Wild at Heart, and oh so many more mostly B-movies. Read more about it here.

- Evidently, tomorrow night Barack Obama's campaign has bought a 1/2 hour on every major television network and he will be addressing the nation. Sheesh, how the hell much did that cost! How many voters could possibly be swayed at this point?

 - I've been looking for a specific pair of Blueblocker brand sunglasses for the past few days, to complete my Walter Sobchak Halloween costume, but I seriously can't find them. If anyone owns these, has seen them somewhere or knows where to buy them at, LET ME KNOW!

Out on DVD today

Zombie Strippers - Jenna Jameson & Robert Englund. Need I say more? Amazing.

Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers: Runnin's Down a Dream - While I may not have time for a four-hour long film about Tom Petty, you may. In fact, I don't really even care for this band. Enjoy!

The Flintstones: The Complete Series - A massive, 24-disc box set that includes every episode EVER.

Mystery Science Theater 3000: 20th Anniversary Edition - An old favorite, and includes some of the best episodes.

Animal House: 30th Anniversary Edition - Jeez, 30 years? I guess that's right... I mean, I'm not even 30 yet

Billy The Kid- A documentary about a 15-year old who loves KISS, karate and is a little bit different from his classmates in small-town Maine. (He was diagnosed with Asperger's syndrome after the movie was completed.)

Journey to the Center of the Earth - Yes, this is that crap starring Brendan Fraser that was filmed in 3-D. Sadly, I think I know a few people who will buy this.

The L Word: 5th Season - Mmm lesbians...

Hell Ride - A relatively lame, Quentin Tarantino-produced, Grindhouse-esque, biker film starring Michael Madsen & Eric Balfour.

Dark Shadows: The Beginning, Vol. 6 - Ah old soap opera vampire tales. I grew up watching this shit.

the bro code

One of the best tv comedies right now has got to be How I Met Your Mother. It has a great cast, even better writers, and often leaves you hanging at the end of episodes - forcing you to quickly look through your scheduled DVR recordings to make sure that next week's show will be saved.

The character that you most love to hate, Barney Stinson, is played by the one and only (and brilliant) Neil Patrick Harris. As part of his perpetual partyer, womanizer and all-around sleezebag persona - he also claims to have developed "the bro code."

Just see for yourself...classico...

i've always loved her, but...

Seriously, she's my favorite person on the planet. Amy Poehler absolutely killed it this past weekend on SNL. Take a look:

What's rolling around in my brain..

1. Last week was one of "those" weeks where I went out every night. and spent a LOT of money. oops.
2. 98% of the time I'm disgusted by the programming that MTV presents its viewers.... except for this crazy parody of The Hills that I am watching right now. Literally rolling on the floor. Seriously, at least MTV knows how bullshit this show is, and can make fun of themselves.
3. I have a new obsession with Belgian White beers.
4. I'm so happy to sleep in a bed tonight... even though it's not mine.
5. I also have an obsession with my new Raybans.
6. Seriously looking forward to election night - both to see what kind of drama will happen, and also just to have this over already.
7. Amy Poehler's Sarah Palin Rap last night on SNL was one of the funnies things ever.
8. My early 90's rock kick is in full effect right now - The Jesus & Mary Chain, My Bloody Valentine, Built to Spill, Dinosaur Jr., and Ride are all in my CD player right now.
9. Even though the movie The Happening was pretty stupid, it was also pretty disturbing.
10. Poor Mr. Nuts is forced to be holed up in my parents guest room bathroom at all times. I think he'll need therapy after this.
11. It's probably time to start looking for a new job.
12. The AWESOME Girl Talk show last Saturday. Yes, I think we were the oldest people there.
