Gome of the Week
Okay everyone, just sit down, take a deep breath and stop flattering yourselves for just one minute. Just because Tom Brokaw is having his mail hosed down and inspected does not give you the right to hoard antibiotics that some people actually need to live. You're just not that important.
I have actually heard people discussing gas masks and escape routes and other tactical maneuvers that they don't have the first idea about. For a country that is constantly bragging about its solidarity, we sure are becoming less and less concerned about the people around us who actually have problems. Oh, the land of the free, where people with life threatening diseases aren't sure where their medicine is going to come from because their fellow Americans watch too much TV and remain paranoid.
And quit calling 911 every time you see stray baking soda on the street. It's becoming harder and harder for coke dealers to keep their product extremely impure.
This Week's Link That's Probably Not That Great
Patton Fever - A fan site dedicated to the great Mike Patton of Faith No More, Fantomas, and most recently Tomahak, whose debut record comes out on Tues. the 30th. This site is deep and put together really well.
A little known fact about Mike Patton: He actually made records after FNM's "Epic." A lot of people seem to not know that.
This Week's Movie You've Probably Never Seen
Spaced Invaders (1990)
Another Halloween related film this week. This time it's Spaced Invaders, a film that takes place on Halloween night.
A group of aliens land on earth, only to find that because of the day of their arrival, they are repeatedly mistaken for young children. Needless to say, madcap adventures and hilarity ensues.
This might be the only film ever in which an alien can be heard to exclaim "I'm goin' home in a bag!"
This film stars Douglas Barr and Royal Dano, whose careers obviously took off after this gem was released.
This Week's Record You're Probably Not Listening To
Willie Dee - Controversy (1989)
Willie Dee is nuts. He's one of the few gangsta rappers who actually pulls off being scary. And he's also pretty funny. This is one of his early records, and it includes the hits "Bald Headed Hoes," "I Need Some P****," and Welfare B****." Yes, I don't think Willie won any Grammies for this effort, but it is top notch work indeed.
Check out the Geto Boys if this appeals to you.
This Week's Hip New Slang Word or Phrase
Double Eye Blinky - A party prank in which the prankster approaches a passed out individual and places his genitals on the fellow's face in this manner: A testicle in each eye socket and the shaft of the penis lays on top of the nose. Usually a picture is taken to document the event.
Origin - I think it's an east coast thing. I heard it from a friend who lived in Syracuse, NY.
Usage - "Oh man, Jim's passed out? Dude, I am so going to give that guy a double eye blinky. Have you seen
