another couple bites the dust...but after 7 seven years, which is about three lifetimes in hollywood years.

ryan phillippe is now single, and one of these days he will accept my calls

Mmmmm... cake....

... but with a twist:

Perhaps this can be my contribution to Thanksgiving this year? I'm sure Greg will love/hate it.

Chocolate and porn, part deux

And a hearty two thumbs up I give to Weird Al's latest effort, Straight Outta Lynwood, which arrived in my mailbox today. Sure, we all knew about "White & Nerdy," but unexpected (to me) bonuses on the disc included "Pancreas," a brilliant style parody of Brian Wilson's already brilliant Smile album, and "Close But No Cigar," a style parody of Cake. Don't you just love it when your favorite artists create humorous imitations of your other favorite artists? I thought so.

yeah, I could be flawless too, with the help of makeup artists and liberal use of photoshop.

a-HA! this is PROOF that ads and magazine covers are not at all rooted in reality. it may be a shameless marketing ploy, but darn it, it's a *clever* shameless marketing ploy.

the horrible resume video may be down, but...

this birthday invite is even worse.

some of my favorite passages:

"A specially made birthday cake has also been ordered and the Ritz

waiters will kindly serve you each a generous slice with Ritz cutleries,
etc...also on me."

Gentlemen: Jacket, shirt, and please also bring a tie (no jeans,
trainers, flip-flops, polo-shirts)
Ladies: skirt/top, cocktail dress (no denim, min-skirts, flip-flips, bad
tastes) "

and finally,
"I will be accepting cards and small gifts between 9pm to 11pm...
wink> hehehe"

...okay, maybe the last one isn't so horrible. for my part, I will be accepting cards and gifts of any size between now and 11:59pm tomorrow evening...oh, heck, why impose a deadline? anytime you would like to give me a gift is fine with me.

the video below accompanied the **11-page** resume this yale senior sent to the investment bank UBS. since then it's been floating around *all* of the i-banks, and methinks he's going to have a few problems getting a job anywhere. thanks, dude, for making yale the temporary laughingstock of the investment banking world. I mean, I'm not planning to actually enter this world myself, but eeeeediot.

Biff from Back to the Future is funny

And in other news, who knew that Rural Hall, NC, was worthy of a Wikipedia entry?

Don't even ask me how I found this

How Many Condoms Can You Wear at Once?

Science at its finest, I daresay.

Why My Hometown Rocks

So, cf my previous comment about the top 10 most singable songs, and I decided to google my hometown. I mean, I knew it was a cool place and all, that Howard Stern went to High School there, Doris Kearns Goodwin signed her name in the same Honor Society book that I did, but did you know that ATM machines originated there?
