A Long Weekend

The alcohol was flowing freely this weekend and great times were had. Always good to see old friends. Drank entirely too many shots on Friday night with several friends, including this crazy girl I've known for about 15 years now. Lots of drama between she and her (former?) boyfriend. I say lots of drama, but it was pretty much entirely undramatic. No crying, screaming, fighting, or anything. Saturday night was far more low key - dinner at a country style Japanese restaurant, then a couple of beers at a kind of lame bar before turning in. I am not sure if it's the alcohol or terrible sleep on hotel mattresses that always do me in after trips like this. Probably a bit of both.

Supah Bizzy

Work is kicking my ass after the long weekend, and I'm leaving out of state on Thursday afternoon. What will I be doing while I'm out of town, you ask? You should really mind your own fucking business, but to answer you this time: getting loaded. Going to see some friends from my time in boarding school in England, hit up a few bars, eat some good food, and maybe even hook up with an old fling from back in the day. Beer and whiskey will be drunk!

Two For The Money

I am an avid sports bettor, craps shooter, and poker player, as I'll eventually make clear as I post on this blog. I was just thinking about this movie the other day and could not for the life of me remember its name. Somebody brought it up on another blog the other day, and it reminded me of an article I read about people being psychologically addicted to the thrills of losing. Not to diminish how terrible this movie is, not by any means, but there is a valid point to what Al Pacino's character is saying here.

The feeling of winning is like being on top of the world; an invincible feeling of happiness and well being. Losing is a bottom of the pit, sinking feeling like dealing with bad turbulence on an airplane. You know how some people love watching scary movies for the scare; the thrill of the monster under the bed? Or similarly, a heart-in-your-stomach ride at an amusement park? That feeling is akin for some  to the sensation of losing when the chips are raked up by the casino or their horse finishes just out of the money. It's a different kind of thrill but a thrill none the less.

Personally, I hate heart dropping rides and bad turbulence about as much as I hate losing. Horror movies are just dumb. :)

Kimbo Slice to Boxing

Kimbo Slice Inks Boxing Promotional Deal With Gary Shaw

A friend of mine sent me this article yesterday. He really doesn't know a lot about boxing, but he's huge into MMA (trains bjj and Muay Thai, watches UFC, follows the sport, etc) and we've both followed Kimbo Slice since he was bare knuckles brawling in the 'hood. His follow up reply was that Kimbo Slice would crush "Klischko." I'll assume he means Vitali, the more active boxer at present.

You know what the Ukraine is? It's a sitting duck!
A road apple, Newman!
I would love to see Kimbo fight and end the careers of either or both of those incestuous freaks (see picture and judge for yourself). The heavyweight division is one of the most boring and least talented divisions in boxing, and these clowns are mopping up against truly inferior competition. Fuck them and fuck their supposed legacy.

That being said, there is no way that Kimbo Slice beats either of these Eurotrash. He is a brawler with hitting power. He lacks anything resembling training or refinded boxing skills. I don't really even give him a punchers chance against Vitali Klitschko; I doubt he could get in range to land anything with significant power. This fight would probably be a lot like Dana White's staged debacle between James Toney and Randy Couture..

The most likely path for Kimbo Slice is to fight in a few to several 3 round brawls against mediocre journeymen as a spectacle. He'll build up some hype, score a few knockouts, and probably go undefeated. This success will propel him into a 10 round match where he'll probably be out-pointed by some lame heavyweight that counter punches and clinches his way to victory.

It would be hilarious to see him step into the ring with a David Tua or Chris Arreola, and let them duke it out until they're too tired to throw anymore. Or maybe Gary Shaw can set up a chess boxing match between Kimbo and Nikolai Valuev.

The WTF Blanket

These parodies are stupid, so of course it made me laugh and want to share it.

Jesus Christ Sponge!

CNN is behind the times

This was reported several days ago on a certainly lulzy website. Traditional, mainstream media is so inept and slow to react to online phenomena.
Video of woman throwing live puppies into river sparks online outcry

Edit: white knight reaction to this clip cracks me up. I see no reason to be cruel to animals, but I don't get worked up into a frothing frenzy when some Eastern European savage does shit like this.


A few hilarious comedy clips. I think the theme is I like miserable, mean comedians.

Louis CK: It is beyond me how anyone can watch Pootie Tang and not think "this is one of the best things I have ever seen!"

Patrice O'Neal: His shows are basically just a verbal porno.

Doug Stanhope: talking on marriage as a legal institution; a future blog topic.

Dave Attell: Hitlersaraus!

Daniel Tosh: I think that some people don't realize he was doing stand up before his show on Comedy Central.
