'Choons: You have 7 days to grab 'em. 'Cause after that, we're making room for turkey and stuffing. And pie.
Something New: Rick Rubin does it again. This time, giving Neil Diamond--yes, that Neil Diamond--the Def American treatment. The result is something that sounds like maybe the best album he's ever done. Hear 12 Songs from start to finish at his myspace page, here "Delirious Love" right here.
Something Old: Does Lou Rawls need to choke a bitch? I didn't think so. "You'll Never Find Another Love Like Mine" is right here. Mmm-hm.
Something Christmassy: Four words: Anita Baker Christmas album. "Christmas Time Is Here", you know.
Something Scottish: K.T. Tunstall's debut disc Eye to the Telescope was called the album of the year by Chris Evans. How can I argue with that? And she's Scottish. Have a wee listen to "Black Horse and the Cherry Tree".
Something to Eat: This weekend, I will mostly be eating homemade salsa.
Something to Drink: So help me, I'm gonna crack some damn skulls if my bar of choice does not put Bass back on tap. It's as if they're telling me, "Your kind is not welcome here. Your 1am routine of dancing on top of the bar will no longer be tolerated. How old are you now? Shouldn't you be getting on with your life? And why do you and Andy always talk soccer? Do you do that to piss everyone off? And why do you always wear black or navy blue? I thought you were taking that job in Toledo. What happened there? And do you know every goddamned song ever recorded? Do you realize how many man-hours are lost at this bar from employees calling your ass up to ID a song that comes over the speakers? It's like Millionaire was still on TV or something. And hear it clear...no one, no one likes it when you and Rodney talk politics. I mean, we can't even keep the fuck up. And we know Newcastle Brown Ale upsets your stomach. That's why it's not going anywhere. So please. Just leave now. Oh, that'll be 11-50."
Something to Do: It's gonna be a long weekend. I'll just leave it at that.
Something to Watch: Walk The Line looks excellent. The usual Adult Swim fare is also up for grabs. There's a new Harry Potter movie out there. John McCain's on Letterman tonight. Hopefully Dave will shut the hell up long enough to let J-Mac do his thing. Whoever told Dave he should start courting Jon Stewart's Daily Show viewers by getting political should be fired or reassigned. It all looks forced to me. (Dave rant over)
Something Obvious: Money can buy you happiness. The Japanese are never wrong on this kind of stuff.
Something Shocking: Roy Keane, bu-bye from Manchester United. Terrell Owens has been a saint compared to Keano. Andy and I will be boring people to death on this subject later tonight.
Something Shocking Part Two: Match.com and Yahoo is t3h fraudz! Besides, everyone knows the best way to get a date these days is by starting your own socialist revolution/band. Maybe he can get together with Rhonda.
Something Quotable: "Bad times, hard times, this is what people keep saying; but let us live well, and times shall be good. We are the times: Such as we are, such are the times."--St. Augustine
