Gome of the Week
I don't know if I can really even put my finger on why, but Tom Tolbert bugs the shit out of me.
Anybody who's been watching the boring-ass NBA finals knows what I'm talking about.
He reminds me of James Carville. Do ya feel me?
This Week's Link That's Probably Not That Great
Hats of Meat - It's really funny at first and then it gets progressively less funny, but what the hell.
This Week's Movie You've Probably Never Seen
Mr. Show - The Complete First and Second Seasons (2002)
Oh happy day, it finally came out. Or at least the first two really short seasons did. I just picked up this DVD the other day and holy crap, I saw the shit out of it.
Anyway, if you have no idea what this is, you're a total loser. Or maybe I'm the loser for studying it like my own personal bible.
They're supposed to be putting out a movie soon, in fact the movie's done, they just need someone to distribute it or whatever. It's called Run Ronnie Run.
This Week's Record You're Probably Not Listening To
Descendents - Milo Goes to College (1982)
Such a goddamned good record. 20 years old and still kicks all of the pop-punk crap of right now in the neck.
"Myage" and "I'm Not A Loser" are just about enough to get me churnin' the butter, punk style.
I mean, they're no Weezer, but it's still pretty damn good.
Next week: We'll talk about why it's OK to like NOFX.
This Week's Hip New Slang Word or Phrase

"Dude, I am stoked to be here, but check out the guy in the tank top and the fruit boots."
"Dude, that guy's fruit boots are trump tight."
