Music Video Of The Day

Great song. The sync is off.

My sister and I always changed the line to, "... you can change your underwear..."

Let me tell ya one thang...

This Is Gonna Suck (Movie Trailer Of The Day)

I like Steve. I like Anne. Heck, I even like The Rock. But this looks bloody awful. I don't know that any movie could ever top the original. Not sure where this trailer is from, but the movie is called Get Smart here in the States.

1974 Billboard Top 50

A year I was buying lots of 45s and listenting to lots of radio. Some of these are great, and some are putrid. Several (light blue) I've never even heard of. Funny how most of the top 10 is forgotten dog squeeze, while classics (The Joker, Nothing From Nothing, Living For The City) are buried deep in the list. 45s we owned in yellow.

Craigslist Ad Of The Day

Wanted: Heart Surgeon for 1/2 Day Gig - No Pay

Date: 2007-11-26, 11:55AM EST


I need a triple bypass surgery and want to have it done ASAP.

We don't have any funds at the moment, but I'll have a friend videotape the whole procedure, and you can have a copy of the DV tape. We're also planning to pitch the idea to some honchos at HBO, so you'll be in on the Ground Floor!

It shouldn't take more than 6-7 hours.

No amateurs - Experienced Heart Surgeons ONLY!
