  1. Montell Jordan- "This Is How We Do It"

    Warren G. (ft. Nate Dogg)- "Regulate"


    Nirvana- "Heart Shaped Box"

    R.E.M.- "Losing My Religion"


    Skee-Lo- "I Wish"

    Dr. Dre (ft. Snoop Doggy Dogg)- "Nuthin But a G Thang"


    New Radicals- "You Get What You Give"

    Meat Loaf- "I'd Do Anything For Love (But I Won't Do That)"


  2. What a difference a Bryan Fuller makes. The hard-on this show has for killing women is still pretty weird, but I'm glad his return did not disappoint. I'd been in "show goes on while I'm doing several other things" mode for a while and was just about to banish it to the same pit I tossed Lost this year, but this was good enough to keep me interested to the end of the season.


    And yes, Mole; Monday's episode was Season 1 good.

  3. That was actually one of the first things I thought of when Patrick said he wanted to be a cavalry scout. Somehow, in the forests of a Central American dictatorship, that moment will come back to haunt him.

  4. The Spaghetti Incident?


    Montell Jordan- "This Is How We Do It"

    Deee-Lite- "Groove Is In The Heart": I adore "Gin and Juice," but it lacks slide whistle.

    Warren G. (ft. Nate Dogg)- "Regulate"

    Fiona Apple- "Criminal"


    Get a Grip


    Nirvana- "Heart Shaped Box": I actually really like the STP song, but this is "Heart Shaped Box." I'm not sure what Czech means by "sludge" in reference to "Interstate Love Song," as it's one of the more buoyant big rock songs of the 90s. No grungy meandering, no tacked-on processed solos.

    Smashing Pumpkins- "1979"

    R.E.M.- "Losing My Religion": "THAT WAS JUST A DREEEAM"x2 has always been a strong contender for best 6 seconds of the decade.

    Tom Cochrane- "Life Is A Highway"


    Armageddon: The Album


    Skee-Lo- "I Wish"

    2Pac- "California Love": Ahead of its time in wanton usage of autotune, leather pants, and Chris Tucker.

    Dr. Dre (ft. Snoop Doggy Dogg)- "Nuthin But A G Thang"

    Red Hot Chili Peppers- "Under the Bridge": Yuck. My least favorite of the songs I'm advancing, but the Offspring are just god-awful.


    Bat Out Of Hell II: Back Into Hell - This whole bracket is immortal.


    New Radicals- "You Get What You Give"

    Sinead O'Connor- "Nothing Compares 2 U"

    Lisa Loeb & Nine Stories- "Stay"

    Meat Loaf- "I'd Do Anything For Love (But I Won't Do That)"

  5. I work with a former Cav Scout. Biggest douche/asshole I know. Fortunately, I think he would have been a huge asshole regardless of his MOS. Judging from some of his stories, you'll get to do exciting things like stay on your stomach in the woods for 4 days.

    Might sound fucked up, but hell yeah. That's what I'm talking about. I'm trying not to be a dumbass gung-ho asshole, but this MOS excites the fuck out of me. Has he ever worn his Stetson in your presence?

    I don't think he has; he was only in for 6 years and has an odd sort of California-cool-kid's distance from it all. He uses his scout background as a means of behaving superior in conversation (even though he was just an E-4 humping around in Germany most of the time), but won't stick with any of the fancy trappings like uniform or medals or whatever. I do know that he's killed a few people, so enjoy that if it comes down to it.

  6. Pretty fruity finish to a usually great show, though I thought there were great character moments throughout the first 80 minutes or so. The last thing I wanted was blasted, irradiated earth to be a fake-out. I was also wholly unimpressed with the Opera House nonsense and the "powers beyond our control did it!" explanation for everything, but I guess that's what you get when you make up goofy mysteries with no understanding of how you're going to solve them. Some good space porn in there, but I felt like this finale largely took the easy way out and tried to wrap things up in a neat bow, which has never been something this show did well.


    Kara just disappearing was brutally retarded, too.

  7. I can't believe


    1) So many people know who the New Radicals are

    2) They're still getting votes in round 2

    Between this and Smues not being familiar with half the choices, I'm beginning to wonder if radio and MTV didn't start broadcasting above the lower 48 until 2002.

  8. Hilarious Meat Loaf fakeout. I'm riding him all the way now.

  9. You didn't, but as with most NFL contracts, it's not at all that long or that much.

    According to the sources, who have seen Lewis' contract, the deal is actually a complicated version of accounting designed to pay Lewis $10 million in the first year of the contract. That breakdown is a $6.25 million signing bonus, a $2.75 million roster bonus and a $1 million base salary for the 2009 season.


    The Ravens then have two "options" to exercise in the 2010 and 2011 seasons. If the Ravens pick up the 2010 option, they must pay Lewis $1.25 million as an option bonus. He then makes $4.25 million in base salary. In 2011, the second option bonus would pay Lewis a $2 million bonus and a base salary of $4.5 million. No details were given in regards to the latter four years of the contract.


    "The reason for doing it this way is to deal with the salary cap, assuming that there's a cap again," the NFLPA source said. "It's just a way of handling the proration on the signing bonus and the other money."

    He'll be on the deal for 2-3 years, make about $16-22 million, and then probably retire. The way the NFL's non-guaranteed contracts are discussed in sports media is generally pretty ridiculous since most players won't see half of their big deals. Haynesworth's "$100 million deal" this season is one of the most notable, as it's actually going to be just a 4-year deal for $48 million.

  10. They've been running a lot of ads for the positively awful Frankenfish on Sci-Fi recently. Even for people who like to get fucked up and watch bad movies, Frankenfish holds little value. I'd avoid it.

    You cut me. Frankenfish is probably my favorite of the Sci-Fi repertory. That movie is awesome in every way, from the random firing shotgun that suddenly kills people off to the grilling of the Frankenfish heart to the guy who looks and talks like Chad from The Mad Real World to the vaguely psychic sassy black river momma. It was on this past weekend and I watched pretty much the whole thing.
