Ramones 'Brain Drain'

I gave the motorcycle / scooter debate some serious thinking over the weekend. The scooter came out on top because of the built-in storage capabilities. I can totally see the money saved on a motorcycle being turned right around and spent on saddlebags or some kind of storage.

Plus, I’m a big fan of getting on a bike, hitting the ignition, and getting gone. I LOVE changing gears in cars, but it’s a different animal on a two-wheeled vehicle.

I’m searching again today. If I find what I’m looking for, I’m buying that mofo ASAP. I’m tired of spending sixty bucks a week to get around in my truck… Yeah, Roxy likes to drink some gas. She’s a V6 and she drinks like a roomful of Alcoholic Anonymous candidates.

--Here’s a reason why it’s good that I’m not a parent:

My niece Chloe was sporting a new temporary tattoo the other day. It was some kind of cartoon crab. I said to her, “It looks like you have crabs. Be sure to tell folks that you have crabs and then show it to them.”

Kevin, my brother-in-law, wasn’t amused and I’m sure my uptight sister Pam clenched her ass tight enough to pinch off a steel girder.

Kids are fun.


I found I Am Legend with the Fresh Prince of Bel Air more enjoyable than I thought I would. It was good, but it wasn’t great. 3 out of 5 stars.

I hated Southland Tales. That film was all over the place and too damn weird for its own good. Since it made it past my 20 minute mark, I gave it 2 out of 5 stars.

I was very surprised with Cry Wolf. You think the film is nothing more than a slasher flick, but it’s not. Cry Wolf is smartly done and fun despite its predictability. I gave it 4 out of 5 stars.

I was disappointed with John Waters’ Cecil B. Demented where guerilla filmmakers are out to save the art of film work. They kidnap a movie star and make her work in their brutal reality type of film. Cecil B. Demented felt like a glorified sketch comedy that’s allowed to run over 10 minutes. But it had it moments… I gave it 3 out of 5 stars.

I’m all over The Untouchables TV series!

But I’m having problems separating Robert Stack’s portrayal of Eliot Ness from Captain Rex Kramer in Airplane!. I just can’t take him seriously sometimes because of Rex Kramer.

Enjoy this "best of" clip from Airplane!.

    Um .. I believe my response was... No Chloe, Don't say that. Then it was forgotten.

    How about the next time Chloe asks a difficult question like.. Why are they taking my blood again Mommy? ... I sent her to you?

    YES! We are ALL thankful that you are NOT a parent. You make a good uncle, but I believe that's as far as "we" should push that envelope.
