Music Monday:

Back to normal this week.  Eight Days a Week.  If you want to learn about the Beatles, then you need to read the essay.  There were things going on that I did not know about.  T

This is not a love poem, it is a negotiation. Can we just get on with it? Can we not be honest and admit that we’ve just met, we don’t really care about each other, but we have needs. Can we please satisfy these needs with the minimum time and effort possible? “I’ve got a plane to catch in the morning love so it’s time to pull your knickers down or get lost”. This is what the narrator is saying.


Paul Krugman sings about Waterboarding.  He does a song a day.   _____ a day is the next twitter.  I called it right here first.  What's that you say?  It was 2004's twitter?  Well retro on the internet is 5 years so it will be back again.  Coda




Lisa Kelly of Celtic Woman singing a Lord of the Rings song.  coda




Whale - Hobo Humpin Slobo Babe





Finally we bring you Me First and the Gimme Gimme's cover of Styx's Come Sail Away.  Audio only

Top Ten Friday Night: No More Slideshows!

I've done it.  I've gotten to the point where I am finding enough material each week that I can officially ban Slideshows.  So all those annoying top ten lists that require click after click after click will no longer be featured here.   Thank goodness.  I did not think I would reach this point this fast, but I am glad it has.  It's a small and petty victory, but I'll take it, because I hate SLIDESHOWS!  I don't want to click.  I want to scroll and read.  Plus I hate complaining about stupid things over and over.  That's almost as annoying as slideshows.  Next step:  Not getting over half my list from one source.  One thing at a time.  I could have cut my list in half, but that is the easy way out.


100.  Top Ten Fantasy Miscastings.  I like how they give suggested alternates.  Plus calling out Liv Tyler in LOTR takes cajones.  Coda


1. Liv Tyler in The Lord of the Rings

So Peter Jackson hired half a dozen people to make mithril by hand, but figured that the girl from the Aerosmith videos was the best choice to play the most beautiful elf maiden in the world. Can’t win ‘em all, I guess. The gormless elf-maiden blanded through her scenes in the first film; thankfully, after backlash, Jackson cut Arwen out of Helm’s Deep (!) and gave her a subplot about feeling dizzy that we could all skip on our Special Edition DVDs. It’s a bizarre casting error from the guy who had the foresight to pick unknowns for several key roles (Orlando Whom?); seriously, was every other actress in the world busy?
Suggested replacement: Jennifer Connelly. She has a handle on subdued, mature pathos, and her bone structure is disgusting. Elf-queen, indeed.



93.  Time's Top 100 english language books since 1923.  I think we are done with top 100 book lists.  Honestly, how much variation can there be from list to list.  Coda

91.  15 iPhone Apps created by College Students.  Way to waste your parents money you ungrateful entrepreneurs!  Why aren't you getting drunk/high like everyone else? Coda


Drop outs!  Honestly!


88.  19 Nerd Winks on Lost.  I have never and will never watch this show, but despite that fact, this list was really cool.  Not cool enough to change my mind on the show.  Coda


Yeah, I went with the creepy picture of Voltron.

84. Six reasons why Texas won't be missed.  Oh yes, that list could have been much much longer.


79.  Nine Words invented by Science Fiction, not science.  Coda

7. Virus. Computer virus, that is. Dave Gerrold (of “The Trouble With Tribbles” fame) was apparently the first to make the verbal analogy between biological viruses and self-replicating computer programs, in his 1972 story “When Harlie Was One.”

75.  10 Most Visually Stunning Movies of the last 10 years.  Many of these movies sucked, by visually they were amazing.   Coda



65.  Matthew's MacCaughey's next 10 movies.



I would pay to see that one!

64.  Top 500 Most Important Domains on the Internet.  This blog is 501, fact!  Coda


12Geocities.com397,25936,600,5768.69
8.72
90
Yeah, geocities is still around, and not doing too bad either.

59.  Top Ten Celebrities caught on film using drugs.  A nice video montage.  Some people are dumb.


58.  The Eleven Most Awesomely Painful Mike Tyson Knockouts.  Before he was a nutjob, well before we realized it, the man was a boxing machine.  He destroyed people.



44.  5 Arguments for using a slow cooker.  I'm glad my wife doesn't read my blog, because I keep it buried in the back of a hard to reach cabinet.  And they are only good for stews and sauces.  A real Bachelor only needs a George Foreman Grill.

40.  Seven ways to Un-Green Your office.  A guide to being a dick in the modern era.  Because wasting the companies money in a recession won't move you up the layoff list at all.

6. Use aerosol cans as an element of illusion- Whenever you enter or leave a room, spray the cans like a mist, and then APPEAR. (cloud of Lysol) “I AM HERE! Start the presentation!” Also works well for leaving bosses office when you screw up. POOF!
Again, a great way to exit the building upon being laid off.

37.  Top 100 Wags.  So a trade.  I disposed of slideshow and will instead use one "for the guys" top ten list each week.  Just one though.  This one is Footballers Wives or Girlfriends.  So just those classy Euro-broads.  ;)


95. Isabel Figueira
Significant Other: ex-wife of César Peixoto (Sporting Clube de Braga)
Full name Ana Isabel Teixeira Laranjo Figueira, the Portuguese model and TV presenter managed to tame playboy César Peixoto, at least for a little while. Married in 2005, they were divorced by 2007 after the birth of their first child. At least Peixoto’s colleagues noticed the engagement had a significant effect on his focusing abilities. how he gets by these days is anyone’s guess.  


32.  Top Ten Evil Queens of Fantasy.  For the evil wannabe in all of us.  Shut up and admit you want to be thier little errand boy (girl). You'd think you were the irreplaceable 2nd in command, until you screwed up and found yourself missing your head.   And to think that Galadriel willing choose to be left off this list.  She so would have been number one.  (again thanx ggm, I'm tired of linking to you.  :P )

3. The White Witch, The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe(2005)
Narnia_Queen.jpgI will grant that the White Witch (Tilda Swinton) does not have the title "Queen," though she rules over Narnia for centuries as if she were. She keeps the land in perpetual winter and turns all who oppose her into stone -- plus she tries to kill Aslan, the story's Christ figure. Completely ruthless, she is also easily the best-dressed.
Attempted Bodycount: Thousands
Actual Bodycount: Thousands, plus Jesus


30.  Top 10 Youtube Tricks.  I definitely need to start using some these.  A very very useful list.  and with YouTube being owned by Google, I'm sure there are more hidden gems than just this list.

3. Cut the chase and link to the interesting part

Linking to a video where the real action starts at 3 minutes 22 seconds, wondered if you could make it start at 03:22? You are in luck. All you have to do is add #t=03m22s (#t=XXmYYs for XX mins and YY seconds) to the end of the URL.



27.  Top Ten Things from Your 20's you'll regret when you are 40.

suitcase
5. Not Traveling (Enough)
It’s hard to realize when you’re 21, but the time for whisking off to foreign lands with nothing to worry about besides which awesome thing to see next quickly evaporates. (Just ask any older person, they’ll tell you all about it.) Before you know it, you’re still in the same place you were seven years before, but with too many responsibilities to get away with jetting off to India for six months, just for the hell of it. So the best bet is to get as much traveling in while you’re single, childless and can still afford to not be working on building up your 401K (as if those mattered much these days, anyway).  So what are you waiting for?
I can check off half of that list, except the one I quoted above.  I traveled.  Mainly roadtrips but still it's better than the total waste that my 20's would have been otherwise.

25.  15 Evil Corporations From Science Fiction that Wal-mart Looks up to.  (I changed their title, it fits better.)

Omni Consumer Products (Robocop)
Described as dystopian and inhumane, Omni Consumer Products (OCP) is an example of military capitalism taken to the extreme, until the corporation no longer cares who gets hurt or killed as long as the PR stays good. OCP is depicted as having its fingers in almost every branch of life, as long as there's money to be made from it. One of their strokes of genius comes from running both criminal organizations and a private police force, thereby ensuring a continued demand for both crime and justice. 


17.  Top 10 Results We'd Like to See as a result of the Rise of the Geeks.  We've taken over and this is the list of our demands.  Comply or be forced to endure hours upon hours of Alf re-runs until you comply.

7. Laser Tag in kids' gym classes  - Do we even need to explain how awesome this would be? We think not.
See, we aren't evil.  I think everyone can get behind this one.


11.  Top 8 Reasons We Should Be Glad Dr. Who is NOT an American.  Yeah, we would kill the concept.  But he'd from Awesome! in the arms of a big breasted hottie in an explosion.  I know, that's the point.  Coda


4) YOUTH

American audiences would eventually tire of the Doctor's elderly appearance, instead opting for a younger, hipper star. In fact, they'd probably go for a guy in his mid '20s just to get people talking....wait, what? What's he doing here?

5. Top15 Film Misquotes.  Done to death but always worth it.

4. Tarzan
Image-13
Misquote: Me Tarzan, you Jane!
As believable as it seems, this line was not spoken in the 1932 film Tarzan, the Ape Man. Here is what was actually said:
Jane: (pointing to herself) Jane.
Tarzan: (he points at her) Jane.
Jane: And you? (she points at him) You?
Tarzan: (stabbing himself proudly in the chest) Tarzan, Tarzan.
Jane: (emphasizing his correct response) Tarzan.
Tarzan: (poking back and forth each time) Jane. Tarzan. Jane. Tarzan…
Ah, such eloquence!


1.  Eight reasons why you'll never make money blogging.   I quit!  Thanks Super Punch for that link that crushes my dreams.  Well guess what, my dreams are like cockroaches, they may be easily crushed and afraid of the light, but once crushed they leave a thousand eggs on your foot!

5. You can make more money flipping burgers.
If you want to get your opinions out into the world, or you want to write a diary about your life, whatever—do that. But why do you have to make money at it? Most of you would probably like to write a bit, to get new opportunities, and then leverage the blog to do something fun. Most of you do not want to write blog posts optimized for advertisers. Really.

Think of what an awesome blog that would be!!  The Burger Flippers Blog!  Everyone would read your wit on the BFB!  IT would be bigger than...than...my blog.  *runs away crying*

USB Tuesday: Tools!

Our inspiration this week came from Nerdcore.de, seriously I am so glad I stumbled upon his blog.



It's a USB Chainsaw, useful for fighting USB Zombies.  From the asian limited edition version of Resident Evil 5.


Now I face one of those tough editorial choices us bloggers encounter daily.  Do I blow my only other good one now or make you wait until the end?

Guess what?  I suck.


No, it really works.  As much as any infomercial gimmick can.  Why don't you go buy one and then tell me how awesome it is.


I can't make it up to you.  I can show you a cool key shaped usb drive.


Buy  After looking at LaCie's website these are serious products that they put real time into designing.


Two batteries:
1) A flash drive.


Buy

2) A Battery.  Yes, it's a battery that you charge via a USB port hidden in the head.


Buy


Know how I told you I was saving my only other good link for last?


I nailed you on that one!   Buy

The State on DVD!

For reals!  The State on DVD!!



I want to dip my balls in it!!!

For those that forget:



I cannot wait.  MTV, I take back exactly 5 of the times that I've mocked you since 2009 began.

Music Monday: New Rancid

New Rancid.  What do you think??  Yes, Rancid trumps Beatles on Ukulele.




Yellow Submarine, sung by a children's choir, accompanied by a ukulele.   Read the essay!

New Rancid also is a good segue into something important to me.  15 years ago I got into 4 bands over the course of one month.  Rancid, Pennywise, Offspring, and Green Day.  Al just before they made it.  Yes Pennywise never made it big, but the other three and especially the albums that got me hooked on them will always have a place in my heart.  So a song from each of those albums is in order.

Rancid: I Am the One



From their self titled debut album.  I fell in love with this album the first time I heard it back in 1994.  It was a tape copy of the CD (I'm an old school pirate!) that my friend gave me at work one day.  I fell in love with the band before I heard the album.  Said friend spoke the magic words to me, "Some of the guys from Operation Ivy started a new band".  Done.


Offspring: Kick Him When He's Down



From Ignition.   I love this album.  I could listen and listen to it over and over.  And I did.  When they hit it big it was cool, heck everyone had Smash and it was a good album.  What came next is what hurt.  They became a gimmick band.  They forgot they were punks.  They lost their edge and that's ok.   Their latest album however is horrible and the three songs they had playing on the radio at the same time sucked.  So bad that all I ever did was turn the station.  I still have Smash and Ignition and neither will ever get removed from my heart.


Green Day: Who Wrote Holden Caulfield?



From Kerplunk.  I am glad I found a modern video of them playing this song straight.  Makes me feel good for still liking them.  I got Kerplunk a full two weeks before the first time I saw Longview on MTV (did you know they used to play videos!?!?!?).  The first time I saw that video, I thoguht this sounds like Green Day but different.  Yes, they sold out and became edgier and harder.  They sold out and ditched Emo.  Totally backwards.   Kerplunk and 1039/Smoothed Out Slappy Hours are two of my all-time favorite albums and always will be.  Even though I finally got the girl.

Pennywise: Unknown Road



From: Unknown Road.  A punk album that starts with a piano bit.  One of my favorite bands ever.  True, they have not changed one bit.  Same music now as then, but isn't a little purity a good thing?  The other three bands here have changed so much over the years, but not Pennywise.   Actually I have to say thanks that all four are still around and making music.  Truly a special and wonderful gift.   I met a guy that was into Pennywise more than me and he was thinking about getting some of their lyrics tattooed on his arm but, he could not pick, there were too many good lines to chose from.   Their cover of Stand By Me is a punk rock cover classic that you should check out for yourself.

I'd post Bro Hym but with personal things going right now, I'd cry.  And there's no crying in the Blogosphere.

Mid Nineties Punk will always be a part of me.  Hope you enjoyed a trip to 1994, my senior year of High School, this was the closest I'll get to a high school reunion.  Thank God!

Top Ten Friday Night: Sparkles!

No, not another one of my beat a dead horse Twilight jokes.  Those will come, trust me.  No, this weeks list has been named after our 100 entry:

100.  The 25 Sparkliest Blogs of this Millenium.


That is her list's badass logo.   Included in her list are three of my favorite blogs:  I can haz cheezburger, Kissing Suzy Kolber, and Cake Wrecks.  Unicorns aside, she has good taste.

95. Star Trek Gets Ruined in 80 Ways JJ Abrams Could Never Dream Of.   Viva Photoshop!





92.  Top 50 Best Selling Console Games of this Decade.  Great and interesting list.  I will not jack their whole table.  Go check it out for yourself.


88.  Top 10 Grimoires.  Crank up the occult geek within you with this list.  No I did not just choose this list because they used a picture of SMG to tease their post!!


82. Top NFL First Round Draft Picks, By draft position, of the last 10 years.  Not a bad list, also not a great one.  I'm sorry, but Lee Evans may not have been a bust but he was hardly worth a first round pick.


AP rightly owns the 7 slot.


74.  Top 5 office supplies you can use as utensils at lunch time.  Look we've all been there at work.  Sat down to lunch with no utensils.  This list could keep you from starvation.


67.  Top 10 Wackiest Headphones.  Now I'm sure you are sick of my anti-slideshow rants, but I am stuck with them until this feature gets big enough that I can ignore them, or can feel justified in reformatting them.


59.  Top 20 Movies that Make you wish you went to College.  Yes Number is there for a reason.



Old School wedding scene.

44.  25 Hardest Videogames of All time.  A pretty balanced list between old-school and new.

Again, my apologies for the slideshow.

31.  Ten Ways Geeks Spent Easter.  I must admit the great geek manual helped inspired me to launch this blog.  I'm sorry man, that was not meant as the insult it may seem like.

08. We watch Zombie movie marathons to commemorate the resurrection of Christ our Savior.

I blasphemed!

28.  Top 20 Fantasy writers of all time.  I've read maybe half the list and have only heard of maybe 3 of those I have not read.


16.  Songs to re-install your OS to.




10.  15 Film Production Credits Explained.  Yes, that's educational!


Go read the explanations!

5.  Top 9 Rocket Sleds!  It takes something special to have more than one single digit entry.  Rocket Sleds are special.



1.  Random Message Board's Top 50 Reasons The Dark Knight Sucked.

4. Acting

The Joker is supposed to be a villain, yet throughout the movie he is seen smiling. Note to Ledger: you might want to change your facial expression once in a while. It’s called acting.


7. Slut!

Minutes after kissing Christian Bale, Maggie Gyllenhaal turns around and snogs Aaron Eckhart. Are these the values we want to instill in our kids?

16. Double Casting
In an obvious cost-cutting measure, actor Heath Ledger plays multiple roles, appearing as a police officer and a nurse. The effect is made even more obvious when the makeup department fails to cover Ledger's numerous facial scars.

17. Double Casting, Part 2
To make this even more noticeable, both Batman and Bruce Wayne are played by the same actor. (This error is especially noticeable on IMAX screens.) 

Brilliant display of why we love message boards.  Do not go there to sign up and screw with a dead thread.  Just read it and enjoy please.

Wii controlled Lawn Mower.

Ice Cube Tray Wednesday: Fishbone

Fish Skeleton.




Imagine the looks you'd get serving drink with these in the glass.   They are a bit odd, but they are also kind of cute.

USB Tuesday: Dismemberment

I am currently suffering from a mild one night insomnia, but you get to suffer too.  Warning these things are creepy and as themed together as I can at 3:35am.

We'll start off with something cute.


Relive your messed up childhood by ripping the head off a Teddy Bear!


I believe in the bump so we stay cute, and headless!


I don't think she realizes how creepy yanking a head off is.


Time for the good stuff, CSI !  Etsy



If you thought what they are doing to him in the upcoming movie was bad, you ain't seen nothing, until you've seen:


Poor Cobra Commander.  No one will ever respect you.


Being a geek poses some real challenges.  For example, who do you maintain your geek cred while simultaneously letting everyone know you are a bad ass?



Maybe you are bad assery is of a more urban variety?  bh


More cute!  This time of a bow tie wearing Koala.  A headless Koala of course.  bh


Lastly I give to you a collection of creepy animals with severed heads.  All made from clay apparently.  She'll customize something for you as well.


I wonder if she's a Beastie Boys fan?

Music Monday: More random than a dice roll

Beattles on Ukulele: In My Life and as always, the Essay is nearly better than the song.

The Ross Sisters (from 1944!) Singing a song about Potato Salad.  Someone needs to cover this ASAP!



Awesome name + Keytar =  HELL YES I'M POSTING THIS!







If you dare, I will provide to a link to download the 1980 Star Wars Christmas album.  Actually it is worse than that, it is the soundtrack to the Star Wars Christmas special.  The only up side is that in 1980 there were no Ewoks.



I'll have to make that up to you somehow...

Beetlejuice? nc







Fine, I'll have to resort to some Pixies to make things up to you.




We'll close this week with the Get Smart theme.  Try to get that out of your head.






Sorry, but I just saw this and had to add it.  Of course I add the full 2:30 version, because I'm an ass.  Play at your own risk.  I like Square Butts Burger King / SpongeBob KIDS MEAL ad!!

TTFN: Double Cracked

100.  Top 6 geniuses who lived to see their inventions go horribly wrong.


The record player.  Sad sad event that happened to such a nice piece of wax.


97.  Top 9 reasons to go to opening day.  A bit late, but whatever.


94. Top 24 Fictional Ads in SciFi Movies.  Of course half of them are from 3 movies, but the rest are fun reminders of how little things can be fun.



86.  List of answers to the question: When is a piece of art done?  Eclectic, non-numeric, and awesome.


81.  Top 10 Bloodhound Gang songs.  Warning: Offensive.  If you needed that warning then I am very glad I provided it!





74.  Top 500 search terms according to this ghetto search engine.  It's here solely due to the 500 thing.


73.  Top 12 Smoke Hoods.  Homemade gas masks, I think.  Creepy + Cool + DIY =



68.  Top 10 ballpark foods .  I hate slideshows and click heavy lists.  Holy hell they piss me off.  But this makes the cut due to #10.


55.  Top 22 Movie drunks.  #1 is so obvious, but sthe list is very well done.


Harvey was not #1, but still awesome.

49.  Top 25 iPhone Apps!  ZOMG!!!  I don't even have an iPhone!

33.  Top 6 most depressing IMDB pages.  Seriously these people were actors and apparently no one cares.


24. Top ten reasons ESPN has gone West.   You forgot to mention their epic fail with the launch of ESPN2.  But you live you learn, you become big and arrogant and you forget, so you learn again.

11.  Top 25 albums that work best when listened to from start to finish.  The list sucks, but the sentiment is sincere and true.  The album as we know it as a collective piece of art will soon be extinct.  :(

1. Top ten geeky last words.   #1 is the best, by far!

Maybe next week, I'll actually edit this thing......

Thursdayton: Saying Thank You

This week I'd like to thank Dave Chappelle  Not because I found him funny at all.  And also not because he went away never to be heard from again.  But because of him our pop culture conciseness is more aware of this song:





than this one:






In case you needed a reminder why.


So Thank You Dave Chappelle, and please where ever you are and whatever you are doing, stay there and don't stop!  Please never try to make a comeback.  Because you aren't funny.

Ice Cube Tray Wreck!

You of course cannot have a Wicked Cool Ice Cube Tray Wednesday without a visit to a Wicked Cool store.  I have seen these elsewhere but I'm picking the link to one of my favorite stores ever, Newbury Comics.


Yes, it's the Titanic and it comes with it's very own Iceberg.  Sick?  Yes. Awesome? Oh, Hell Yes!

USB Tuesday: Opening day!

One is just not enough to celebrate the start of the new MLB season.

Basics first.  Baseball is a game of fundamentals, so for USB that means your basic Flash Drive.



It's a stretch and I doubt I will do it often, but there is nothing more nostalgic than mini baseball helmets.  Turn those helmets into USB mice and you have a winner.   buy



I'm afraid to post the picture, because it's ugly and I can't see the functionality, but the concept rules so you'll get the link.  USB speakers shaped like baseballs.

Baseball lights up my life.


Don't like my bad puns?  Too bad!  I am a huge fan!  Of both baseball and my own bad jokes.



Note:  I have intentionally left off the bracelet.  They are lame as hell and I refuse to ever link to them.  In fact if I ever see you wearing one I am going to rip it off your wrist and throw it as far as I can into either the woods or oncoming traffic.

Enjoy the baseball season, it's the best reality show on TV.

PS- I did not know the Red Sox was going to get rained out.  Do not blame me for that.

Last plug for Mock Madness 2009

Finals going now.  Enjoy!

Troublesome Tetrad!

Music Monday



Oh, I am not messing around anymore!

But I will be kinder for the rest of this monday.

For example you shall get two Beatles tunes this week.  And this week only!
Cry Baby Cry
I Want You (She's So Heavy)

That project is amazing and I will link them every week.  I want you to get to the point where you skip me and go straight to them.

Caliparication
Ryan Parker songs are usually really good.  Acoustic, sports related, and when his sports allegiances don't bug me then I love him.  He gives you a good reason to take music lessons so you can have fun later in life.  Plus the pun he uses here is just brilliant.

Jerk of All Trades - Lunachicks



Took me forever to find a video of them where both the audio and the video were at least tolerable.  And I'm glad it was the song that got me into them.  The person who uploaded the video is wrong though, it was not from 2002.  Syndi and Chip had both left band long before then.

Silly game Sunday

This week's silly game is My Brute.


It's a basic simple fighting game that's all stat/random based with no skill what so ever.  It's a glorified facebook app, but it's cute, and it's fun.  They had me when my net trapped my opponents pet cat and took the cat out of the match.

Watch a sample fight.

Top Ten Friday Night!

For those with nothing better to do on a Friday Night I'll compile the Top "Ten" List of Top "Ten" Lists.  The quotes do indicate that I will have a very liberal definition of the number 10.

100. The 100 Typography Resources for Professional Designers.  Now, there is a real chance that 1 or even possibly 2 professional designers will actually read this post.   And if they do A) That would be fontastic, and B) They'd be horrified by the look of my blog.  And even longer is the chance that a layman will actually appreciate one of the links on that list.  and that would just rule.

99. If you think Lost is confusing, try keeping track of Terminator's TEN timelines.  Jesus!  If time travel exists it can't possibly be this confusing.

81.  Best Photos take by the Hubble Telescope.  As amazing as these are, they still do not justify the colossal waste of money that piece of crap is.  It was obsolete before it went up in orbit and it's had more maintenance issues than Adam Sandler's Piece of Shit Car.  Crappy slideshow warning #1.



77.  Awesome list of Sports Maladies that you'll never see on ESPN.  The best is last on that list.  A very well crafted Ricky Henderson joke, that Ricky Henderson would never understand.


64. Top 10 most procrastinating cities when it comes to filing tax returns.  As based by TurboTax upon 2008 data.  F'n awesome.  I have not done my taxes yet.  Have you done yopurs?

59. Here is where the G20's list of top Tax Haven's would go.  But the idiots in the main stream media can report about the list, and print reactions to the list, but they are unable to achieve the basic task of actually printing the list!  No wonder newspaper's are dying, the things we want to see they aren't showing us!  The thought of not having the Boston Globe around is worse than actually not having around.

53.  Top 10 ugliest Kicks of the last 20 years.  These are some ugly sneakers.  The you ain't got no alibi kind of ugly.  Want a sample?  Are you sure, Blogger does not have a spoiler feature so I can't hide it.  Alright, I have two last words of warning: Kanye West.



48. Top 10 PSX games downloaded for play on the PSZ (PS3, sorry I remember when sony started calling the PS2 the PSY).  Short term retro, but still cool.  I know it's 2009, but retro 90's is already here.  See my Editor's (wife) interest in the NIN / Jane's Addiction tour.



43.  The Top Ten Racing movies list is so well compiled that I have to have it on here.  I apologize for the click intensive pain in the ass slideshow bullshit.  The only thing worse than a news story only available in video form is the forced slideshow.  Can the crappy high end graphic and post the damn list.

31.  Top Ten ER Finale moments. Call it first-timers mess-ups, but I apologize again for the horribly formatted list.

28.  Top 10 Greenwashing Companies.  Greenwashing is like whitewashing the truth, but here the truth is about being green.  As cynical as it may be, the more a company advertises it's environmental responsibility and achievement the worse the company is for the environment.

22. Top Ten Athletes that are also Dead Beat Dads.  I can't believe I nearly forgot this one.  I'll be more organized next week.  Stop laughing that was not a joke!

11. The Best 1-800-Collect ads from the '90's.  Did I mention retro 90's is already upon us?  Well, it is.  And these ads were truly awesome.  Including, but not limited to Eva Savalot , the character that saved the career of everyone's crush, Alyssa Milano.




10.  Top Ten Star Wars Toys.  Notice the lack of Prequel toys?  Good list.



1.  Top Ten Slang Terms from the 90's.   I set that up rather nicely, didn't I?  Hella right I did!



When that song came out it annoyed the living shit out of me.  Now I have to admit it's grown on me.  It's the keyboards, I'm a sucker for cheesy keyboards.
