Assholes

October 30th, 2006

So a guy at work today showed me this great post on another website talking about assholes. This post talked about how to tell if someone is an asshole. This first example is ordering a:

decaf grande half-soy, half-low fat, iced vanilla, double-shot, gingerbread cappuccino, extra dry, light ice, with one Sweet-n’-Low and one NutraSweet

The post goes on and on about it. For the most part I can agree with it. But assholes don’t order coffee like that. Assclowns, wankers, and douchebags order coffee like that. People that order coffee like that are the reason assholes exist.,

Saw III

October 29th, 2006

I got to see Saw III Friday night when it opened.  It fulfilled my blood lust for maybe a week or so.  The gore was fantastic! I think they definitely beat out The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning on the gore aspect.  Of course gore can be categorized into one of my three B’s.  Beer, Blood, and Bitches, I’ll let you decide which one.  So it obviously made me happy.  Tip of the hat to the director.

The story line was satisfying.  Not good, not bad, just ok.  I won’t get into the story, thats what the big boy reviewers do.  It continued on from the first two movies, and the story kept Jigsaw’s methodology going.  It wraps up the “Trilogy” nicely.

But some fucking ass clown decided to throw in some Friday the 13th style scare tactics.  Having someone stand behind another person quietly, and then having them turn around to a loud noise is no longer scary.  What makes the saw movies scary is the idea of what we would do if we were put into life or death situations like those presented in the movie.  I fart on you Mr. Director man.

Now here is something interesting that I hadn’t thought about as I left the theater.  I was smiling too much.  Firstly because the gore, well, it gives me a chubby.  And that meant I got to go home and kill a kitten.  Second cause all the little high school kids had to go home and go to sleep cause it was past their bedtimes.  But in this movie review from the Boston Harold, which doesn’t like the gore, brings up an interesting point.  This was gore-infested.  Why didn’t it get an NC-17 rating?  Their point is what had to be cut from the movie to get it down to R?  My point is, how much did it cost the producers to get the MPAA to give it the R rating?

I Taste Like Strawberries

October 27th, 2006

It’s true. I taste great. I don’t know this from personal experience. I hear this. From people. They say I taste like strawberries. I think thats why people like me so much.

It’s obviously not because I shit red logs. I do. But people don’t seem to be impressed by that. They seem a little grossed out. I’m not sure why. Everyone shits red logs right?

Beer!

October 19th, 2006

So Tuesday night I was at the Crunch for their Oktoberfest. What a fantastical time. They had a ton of beers and the distributors there for us to taste all the different beers. I had a blast. The breweries included:

They were all fantastic beers. I got a little drunk near the end, so its hard to remember, but I think I ended up getting close to twenty different beers that night. Here are some of the highlights in my humble opinion.

If you’re looking to finish off the Oktoberfest season, one I would recomend trying is Michigan Brewing Company’s Screamin’ Pumpkin Spiced Ale. It has a great cinimon and pumpkin flavor that reminds you of home made pumpkin pie. Fantastic!

Arcadia had two new brews for us to try. They had a brandywine that was bottled two weeks ago. This thing was amazing! They also had their new strong ale which was bottled the day before. It was pretty damn good too.

The hands down winner for the evening though had to be the Stone Brews. They ended up having for us to try:

Pale Ale: Our flagship ale, Stone Pale Ale is our Southern California interpretation of the classic British pale ale style. Deel amber in color, Stone Pale Ale is robust and full flavored. A delicate hop aroma is complemented by a rich maltiness. This is an ale for those who have learned to appreciate distinctive flavor. Stone Pale Ale is great by itself, or with food that requires a beer of character.

India Pale Ale: An “India Pale Ale” by definition is higly hopped and high in alchohol(Ours is 6.9% alc./vol.). Light-medium malt character with a heavy dose of over the top hops! Two full weeks of “dry hopping” give this beer its abundant hop aroma and crisp hop flavor.

Arrogant Bastad: The “blank sheep” of the Stone family of beers. The bottle’s “You’re Not Worthy” tag line says it all! Brewed in the style of a Strong Ale, this is the perfect brew for the confirmed beer maverick, but may put others into sensory overload!

Ruination IPA: Stone Ruination IPA is so called because of the “ruinous” effect on your palate! Based on the ever-popular Stone Anniversary IPAs, this massive hop monster has a wonderfully delicious butterness on a big malt base. One taste and you can easily see why we call this brew “A liquid poem to the glory of the hop!” Those who seek, crave and rejoice in beers with big, bold, bitter character will find true nirvana in Stone Ruination IPA!

Smoked Porter: Stone Smoked Porter is dark, rich and complicated. A porter is substantially darker than a pale ale, but not as black or opaque as a stout. Our Smoked Porter has a captivatingly deep mahogany color, complimented by silky dark tan head. Rich, full bodied and robust. Smooth, with chocolate and coffee-like flavors balanced by the subtle “smoky” character of just the right amount of peat-smoked specialty malt.

Thats what Stone has to say about themselves. I say their beer is fucking fantastic! Their Pale Ale and IPA are great. If you like hoppy beer the ruination is god among beers. The smoked porter has a great taste, with a hint of smokey, and finishes smooth. The Arrogant Bastard is amazing! If you like beer you definately need to go out and find this beer. If you can’t find anywhere that has it. Yell at people till they do. They will thank you in the end I promise it.

I gotta send a shout out to Perry the Stone Regional Rep for spending time with us and bringing his amazing beers to us. Thanks again!

If you aren’t drunk yet, go get some beer and enjoy it!

You Should be in Radio

October 12th, 2006

I’m not sure exaclty what that means. Well I mean, I understand the english language well enough to know what those words mean. I know enough to know what they mean when they are strung together to form that sentence. But seriously, the context of the statement. Why was it said, and for what purpose? Am I looking a way to far into this? Obviously. But for the fuck sake of fuck, what does that mean?

Lego’s and Thriller

October 11th, 2006

MP3 of the Week

October 5th, 2006

So here is the first single off of Papa Roach’s new album The Paramour Sessions. I gotta say when I popped this one in it gave me quite a shock, this seems much different than their older stuff. Seems more “punk” and less….could you say “hard?” Anyways be sure to check it out here!

Must…Pet…Bunny…Ears…

October 4th, 2006

Friday sent this pic to me. And I must say, the bunny ears are something special for the two of us. I’ll share the pic, you’ll probably even like it if you have a penis, but you won’t know the bunny ears. That’s right, its our little thing, we’re like a super secret club of bunny ear loving freaks. FREAKS I say!


Weddings

October 3rd, 2006

So I was down in Columbustownville for Squirrel and Lindy’s wedding. It was fantasticly amazing wedding. I cried. That’s right, I’m a hopeless romantic, that is just how I roll. Coming back into town was sad for me. Hard even. Home isn’t where you hang your hat. Home is your family. And Squirrel and Lindy have been my family for quite a few years now. It is hard not having them around to put smiles on my face all the time. But I am happy and proud for them, they have made a great start to a beautiful life. All right, I think that is enough sentimental tacky crap from me. Congrats again to both of you, and enjoy your honeymoon in Florida.
