Eye Boogers

The Steelers Are Heading To Tampa!! - Sunday's AFC Championship game was a little too close at one point, but my boys prevailed over the Ravens in the end. Now it's off to Florida for the chance to win a record sixth Super Bowl. Keep waving those towels, Steeler Nation! Here we go!

Dying To See A Movie? - On Saturday, one day after a man was shot at a premiere for Notorious, the Biggie Smalls biopic, four men were stabbed at an after-party for another showing of the film. Will this senseless violence never end? Why, just last night, several bitches and hounds were injured when a fight broke out at the premiere of Hotel For Dogs. There have also been many reports of psychotic outbursts and even suicide attempts during recent screenings of Paul Blart: Mall Cop. At this time, authorities don't believe that there is any connection between any of these events.

What Rhymes With Joaquin? - Retired actor/professional weirdo Joaquin Phoenix busted a few rhymes at a Vegas club over the weekend, re-introducing himself to the public as an aspiring rapper. Then, it appeared that he begged for bus fare home before falling off the stage. The stabbings never happen where they should, do they?

It's Obamapalooza! - Stars such as Bruce Springsteen, Sheryl Crow, U2, Garth Brooks, Stevie Wonder, and Beyonce performed at the inaugural concert on Sunday...just one more over-the-top event to ensure that even those of us who voted for Barack will be kind of sick of him by the time he actually is sworn in. As far as concerts go, it wasn't bad, but mild compared to the shows we're all used to by now, thanks to huge productions by bands like the Rolling Stones, Guns 'N Roses, and Iron Maiden. I kept waiting for the statue of Abe Lincoln to get up out of his chair and start pumping his fist in the air. I was kind of let down when he just sat there.

I'd Like To Dedicate This One To Michael Johns - Kelly Clarkson's new album, All I Ever Wanted, is due out on St. Patrick's Day but she's recently released the first single, "My Life Would Suck Without You." Click on the link to download the tune. I don't feel bad giving it away for free because it's already being offered for free on VH-1's website. I'm glad to see Kelly bouncing back after watching her last record, My December, unjustly tank. True, it wasn't as immediately accessible as her mega-hit album, Breakaway, but I thought it was commendable that she wanted to do something a little different. I guess she's over that phase now though, because this new song is pretty much a Nicki Frenchified version of "Since U Been Gone." Well, at least we know that the formula still works because this is catchy as hell.

That's terrible about the movie-related violence. I recently heard that Valkyrie has prompted some copycat attempted-evil-dictator-killings, and now several evil dictators are in hiding. Why can't films promote love?

What??? I just don't get it??? Why all the violence?? Waste is all it is.
Anyway, Becks baby! Goin' to Tampa!! Yes-nice victory yesterday- and um-can we talk?-Is Kurt Warner not a hot, little, delectable, tasty treat?? Where's he been hiding out?? Tommy, he's not-but he's damn close.
Don't let it distract you though-keep your eyes on the goal line...

Go SuperBowl! I don't have a horse in the race so I hope yours wins! I didn't get to see the concert yesterday. I'm cheap and don't have a cable box so I couldn't get HBO (channel 301). Oh well. I've seen the clips.

Congrats to your Steelers. I've always loved Big Ben and root for them any time they don't play the Chargers.

I really enjoyed the awesome and terrible inaugural concert. Seeing Garth Brooks, for some reason, made me really happy.

And I didn't love the new K. Clark single on first listen, but maybe it will grow on me. I still love her, however.

There's a bunch of stuff I knew you were dying to know about me. You're Welcome.

Congratulations on the Steelers; I was thinking about you last night!

1. That Joaquin Phoenix thing can't possibly be true, can it? I think we're going to have to move him into the Tyson Zone. Named for Mike Tyson, it was created by one of my favorite writers, Bill Simmons. When someone is in the Tyson Zone, it means that no matter what he says or does, it is impossible to be truly surprised.

2. I can't believe it. Obama has jumped the shark and he's not even president yet. He will never be as popular or relevant as he is right this second. Sorry dude, it's all downhill from here.

Kimizzy said...

No one should be surprised by the rock concert of the inauguration of Obama. Hello? Was I the only one watching the DNC? Roman columns?? Reeeaaaally now.

However, the fact that Bush is gone is definitely concert-worthy.

"The stabbings never happen where they should, do they?"
ROFL. He's such a freak.

When Mike Tomlin looks into the camera to speak, I can feel his eyes burning holes in my chest. You don't have to be frothing at the mouth to be INTENSE.

Good luck to your Steelers!
I'm from Ohio, I'm still trying to grasp the idea that Arizona has a NFL team. Didn't Kurt Warner become a missionary in Africa or somethin'?

WTF? Go Steelers!

I've spent all my free time searching for pirate treasure and fearing Italians ever since The Goonies, so I understand the impact movies can have.


Who Does This Broad Think She Is?

My photo
I am a winsome muse who was sent to Earth to inspire an artist to turn a vacant building into the world's coolest disco roller rink. We fell in love along the way, and I foolishly gave up my immortality. When the disco craze ended and all the roller rinks were shut down, that lazy bum wouldn't get a job. We broke up and I was stuck on Earth with nothing to do and no one to inspire. So, now I write a blog.
