Women Need Bigger Ones

Women and breast implants; and road trips that require bathroom visits.

I thought about titling this "Mind Your Pees and Q's", but I thought more guys would check in if it was titled the way it is. I want to know why women have bought into this theory that us guys ...

The latest beauty pagaent tragedy. Or was it?

Being Sick Sucks

My Sunday spent in bed being sick...enjoying football and missing Van Halen.

I'm trying to watch football on Sunday, and can't enjoy the Chargers finally beating a team the way they're capable of doing - because I'm in bed sick. I call and cancel my Sunday night racquetball game because I still ...

The movie No Country For Old Men is discussed, with no spoiler alert needed.

I just saw No Country For Old Men. It's the movie all the critics are raving about. The movie that will get Oscar nominations for Josh Brolin (who was great), Tommy Lee Jones (who has played this character before). The ...

Trying to Watch TV

Things that annoy me watching TV.

When I started noticing that the TV credits of a movie would go by faster than normal, or they'd start to show them and split the screen to show you the upcoming shows the network was running; I figured I ...

Conspiracy Theory

Idiots that don't believe we landed on the moon, or that think the Bush Administration was involved in plotting 9/11.

I was having Thanksgiving dinner with some friends. And, one of the guys I didn't know real well started complaining about the war. When he said something about Bush and Cheney knowing about 9/11 I had to stop him in ...

Writers Get No Love (even in death)

The death of two guys heavily involved in TV commercials.

I don't know when I started reading obituaries. Sometime in my 30s, knowing that I could be one of the dudes listed there. Or, maybe it was the time I was glancing over them, and saw a friend I went ...

Radiohead releasing a CD online, and nobody paying for it.

I'm kind of old school when it comes to music. I don't download songs. I just go out and buy the CDs. If I'm at a show and I like the bands new stuff, I buy it at the merch ...

Fake Friends

The girl that killed herself from a phony friend on Myspace.

So, the other story that really got me bothered was this girl in Missouri that hung herself. She was 13. I had a classmate named Michael, that hung himself when he was a year younger. What makes this story so ...

Love Thy Neighbor (with a shotgun)

Two burglars shot dead by a neighbor.

Two news stories that better result in some jail time. If not, I say we get a posse and go over there and do some Charles Bronson type of vigilante justice. Anyone in? First, there's this idiot that called 911, ...

Cheerleaders That Aren't #1

Kids being suspended, and the parents that support them.

The Suzanne Vega concert. And the idiots in the crowd.

How many T-shirts do you need in your closet?

My friends say I'm like a chick. No, I don't have man boobs. It's just...I can't do things like program a VCR (TiVo now). I can't work on my car. And, I've always loved shopping for clothes (save the posts, ...

Do You Really Wanna Hurt Me?

Boy George and other 80s stars that make the police blotter.

So, Boy George was arrested the other day for chaining a guy up in his house. I laughed so hard when I saw them hauling him off. I couldn't decide which movie it reminded me more of...the scene in Pulp ...

Ho Ho Ho!

Being offended by Christmas related things.

My friend just sent me a story about a Santa Clause in Sydney, Australia that was told not to say "Ho Ho Ho" because it might be offensive, since a "Ho" is sometimes what people call prostitutes. If this isn't ...

Dumb Deaths

Unnecessary deaths, from airports to Yosemite.

In the newspaper today, there were three deaths all on the same page, all of which were dumb. One of them was the lady in the Phoenix airport. The woman "accidentally strangled herself" after the police arrested the intoxicated woman ...

House of the Rising Harriers

A local running club, and one of their other chapters that got into trouble.

I've gone to two parties that the local chapter of the Hash House Harriers have put on. Some crazy folks there. They call themselves a "drinking club with a running problem," and do runs all over town. The most popular ...

The Divorce Song

Divorces in songs, and with celebrities.

There are a lot of great breakup songs, but The Divorce Song by Liz Phair is the best. Go find it. Download it, or buy the CD (Exile in Guyville). I also like Carole King's It's Too Late; but I ...

I Wanna Be a Gangsta

Try being quiet in the movie theatre, or I'm going to get all up in your face. And you're not going to like it.

You're all idiots. It's really the only conclusion I can come to. The ones that are loud in the movie theatres. And, the ones nearby that do nothing about it. Which is everyone. I went to see American Gangster the ...

My Love Letter To Pam Grier

I thought about actress Pam Grier while watching American Gangster last night.

When my friends go ga-ga over someone like Angelina Jolie, I can never figure it out. I’m more into someone I see in a movie that is hot, but mysterious. Someone I know nothing about. I remember watching Cocoon, and ...

The Sting

From The Police, the group...to the real police, to Ozzy and OJ, everyone's got a "sting".

DMV...isn't as easy as 1,2,3

The DMV finally open after a week of being closed because of the fires. They should fire the employee I had to deal with.
