Thursday Random Thoughts 4/24

-Stuff I have been thinking about:

-I saw a clip this past weekend that was hilarious. Bill Mahr said something like this: Now I don't want to sound like a conspiracy theorist but does anyone find it odd that President Bush is an oilman and during his presidency the price of oil has tripled? Now I am not saying anything but if Colonel Sanders was President and the price of chicken had tripled people would think something was up.

-No way that Carly Smithson should be gone from American Idol after the results last night. She is way better that most of the singers left on there and I am about at the point where someone needs to do a Nancy on David Archuletta. I can't stand that little no talent overacting fake-ass kid. Mr "Stage Dad" Archuletta if you read this and take umbrage, please feel free to e-mail me. I have some words of wisdom for you too.

-It wouldn't surprise me one bit if Amy Winehouse doesn't live to see 2009 after the recent pictures I saw of her... Let that be a little Public Service Announcement for y'all... Heroin kills kiddies.

-While I am tossing out PSAs how about this oldie but goodie: Never trust a big butt and a smile.

-I read the other day that this past weekend was the annual "BeatBox" convention called Boxcon08. I bet that would be fun to watch on TV. However I am not sure I would want to be there in person because there sure would be a lot of spit flying around.

-I never EVER thought I would say this but I think that I might like ground turkey better than ground beef in spaghetti sauce.

-In my entire life I had only been to one "Petting Zoo." However in the past year since my son has been born I have already been to two and on Saturday I will be going to another when my in laws are in town. Who knew how having a child would change my life in this particular odd way? I now LOVE petting zoos!

-OK that AT&T "Go Phone" commercial that I wrote about last week with Meatloaf and Tiffany has gone from just being annoying to being the worst ad ever seen on TV. And it's everywhere.

-Don't believe that well worn cliche because I am here to tell you folks, There ARE dumb questions.

-Here is a concert for you on May 3 in Charlotte NC. Here is the lineup: Kid Rock, Reverend Run, and Peter Wolf (J.Geils Band) Now who in the heck thought it would be a good idea to put those three together for a tour?

-FYI... as long as things stay the way they are YJKOBT should get it's 25,000th visitor sometime next Wednesday or Thursday.

-Interesting search note of the week. Someone from the state government of Delaware found our blog by searching "Rejected McCain campaign slogans" That post still gets tons of hits all the time. I think that one is going to end up in the "Hall of Fame"

-You could have had my whole life savings if you had bet me that my buddy MickyT would have northern accent. I guess I figured that he would sound more like he was from Tennessee and not like he was from Boston! Anyway I spoke with him the other day because (how scary is this) Mic and I might actually be related. We share a family name that is not commonly spelled the way ours is and we tried in a vain attempt to see if we were distant cousins or something. We still aren't sure... Small world huh?

Doc, Here is some very UNSURPISING information for you: I have a couple of Peter Wolf's solo songs on my iPod.
'Come as you are. Now come on, whoop whoop! Come as you are, and we'll have a ball.'
Great Peter Wolf song from the '80s.

Doc said...

The Mountain Cat said...
Leighann, I am the hardest working man in the blogosphere.


UHHHHH WRONG !!

I have already dubbed MickyT as the hardest working man on the 'sphere... You got no shot!

Doc said...

Don't get me wrong Vin, I love J.Geils - Freeze Frame was 3rd album I ever owned on vynil however not exactly the Kid Rock type of show.. there is a list for you. Worst Tour ideas... Kid Rock, Rev Run, and Peter Wolf would be on it!

Lu' said...

Doc you're right that Carley shouldn't be gone. Then again Knight is right, now she can get started on her career. She just seemed to be enjoying herself so much and is WAY better than say Jason or Syesha or Brooke for pitty sakes. She should've been able to hang around and entertain us a little longer.
Never heard that about a big butt and a smile. Guess we have trust issues then on my end; ha ha ha.

Knight said...

Where did that little picture in the hat come from? Did I miss something?

You can't pull a Nancy on a little boy like Archuletta. That's child abuse! Just take away his nap time and he will be too cranky to perform.

Doc said...

Lu.. She can't go on and make her record 'cause she is beholden to Idol until after the "tour" wraps up in September.... She now has to wait until no talent hacks like Archuletta, Mercado, and White still sing. Everyone knows that Cook will win... At least he BETTER !

Knight.. That guy hiding behind his hat is MickyT (the hardest working man on the blogosphere)

Doc said...

Never heard that about a big butt and a smile. Guess we have trust issues then on my end; ha ha ha.

HAA! Lu - others will catch this one... I didn't make that up. I just want to see if anyone (other than Vinny) knows that off the top of their head... I bet Karen does.

Lu' said...

Doc she can field the offers though and sort them out for when she is ready. Speaking of chicken, my boss' dad is outside grilling hot wings. Gotta go get some of those. Micky-T is a good friend and great guy. No doubt the hardest working guy in the 'sphere, sorry Cat.

Lu' said...

Ya know, hot wings are not keyboard friendly :)

Doc said...

Lu is gonna have a sticky keyboard...

Jay said...

I can't believe that not only did neither Brooke nor Jason Castro get sent home, they weren't even in the bottom two. No freaking way! They suck so bad!

And that little munchkin David is a smug little bastard that I would love punch right in the face.

Lu' said...

Jay why don't you gore him with the hat. No, now lets be kind to little David. Doc, they were good. Mmm mmm I gnawed on those bones like a termite on Heather Mills fake leg.

Doc said...

Jay... HOLY CRAP how could I forget about Jason Castro?... He has looked so lost for the past few weeks he deserves the boot too...

Lu... Don't make me break bad with a Yo Gabba Gabba reference on you since you brought up Heather Mills... LOL!

Micky-T said...

I agree about Bush-- let's go give him a dope slap! Correction "we" all need the dope slap!

The big H is bad- I stayed far away from that as a dumb kid!

Ground turkey is a staple in our house.

J. Geils ROCKS

I had a guess that some folks might think I had a Tennessee tone, but the cats out of the bag, "Boston, your my home!" Have I told you J.Geils Rocks?

I once knocked on a door of a house that had a mailbox name same as mine [doc too]and tryed to figure out why were NOT related.
Ellis Island is the reason. Millions of people coming in with names to hard to pronounce. [the guy at the desk] Ahh.. well, what was that again? Baciekitellysan. How about we just call it, Baxter. Next....

Dana said...

Now I know why "reality" TV won't go away - everyone at YJKOBT is watching the damn stuff!

Micky-T said...

Not me Dana.....well maybe a little!

Doc said...

Hey Mic... did you hear that J. Geils ROCKS !!??

Doc said...

I blame it on my competitive side.. My wife and I have an AI "draft" each season.

But thats the only reality crap I watch.

Micky-T said...

When we easters went west way back when, we turned the westers on to J. Geils. They ROCK you know?

Lu' said...

Sorry for this Leighann, I yo gabba gabba'd those wings 'cause there was a party in my tummy. I can't believe I went there but I did and even I puked a little. Happy Bunny reference, I love those critters.

Micky-T said...

Lu puking for lunch....mmmm
That's Nice!

Lu' said...

I watch these AI, DWTS, HK and spot checks on CR, ROL, CFC, TB and watch the reruns for ANTM. I watched, when it was on SYTYCD.
Blogging all the while...

Lu' said...

Mic only at the YGG reference.

Leighann said...

David Arentyougoneyet looked positively PETRIFIED when he heard that he was safe. I don't think he wants to be there at all, it's his overbearing brute of a father that's behind it all.

I heard that his father has been kicked out of the building before for getting in the way!

Doc said...

I yo gabba gabba'd those wings 'cause there was a party in my tummy.

SO YUMMY !!
SO YUMMY !!

Leighann said...

Lu and Doc you've both just been put on my shit list.

I hope you're happy with yourselves.

Lu' said...

Hey at least we didn't use that as something the mirror would say. You didn't have to read there, that would have been funny though. How about it Doc?

Knight said...

Oh! I didn't recognize Micky-T in the larger version. I always thought he had a bandanna down over his eyes in the thumbnail.

Micky-T said...

Knight- I'm shy! HA!

Doc said...

I hope you're happy with yourselves.

Very... I stay on your s--- list !!

Lu - I actually thought about having the mirror say some Yo GG stuff but figured she would delete it!

Leighann said...

Revenge is a dish best served right smack upside your head.

*pout*

Dianne said...

It would scare the shit out of me to be on Leighann's shit list but it'll never happen cause I'm a hair pullin' doll!

I just want the entire Bush family to take their blood money and go off to Saudi Arabia. They can feel free to live the rest of their pathetic lives in retirement splendor. They must however sign an agreement that no future moron seed can ever run for office.

and on a totally different subject - I heart petting zoos. Washington DC should have one on the White House lawn.

I just can't let go.

Micky-T said...

[I just want the entire Bush family to take their blood money and go off to Saudi Arabia. They can feel free to live the rest of their pathetic lives in retirement splendor. They must however sign an agreement that no future moron seed can ever run for office.]

I agree with Diane!

Somebody please tell me how to put quotes from comments in italics!

The Mountain Cat said...

I need a nap.

Doc said...

I agree with Dianne too...

Mic it's HTML coding... see the tags right below the comment box? use the < i > whatever you want to make italics then close it with < /i >

(but take out all the spaces in between the < and the >

you can practice here if you like...

Doc said...

Revenge is a dish I get served to me on Saturday morning...

Lu' said...

His head not my head, our heads? Who said head, now we're talking. All better Leighann :):)

Leighann said...

Revenge is a dish I get served to me on Saturday morning

I can't wait!

Leighann said...

Almost.

Lu' said...

DANA they are at it again...

Leighann said...

Dianne you're my favorite :)

Leighann said...

Lu you just wait.... all the suspense will be SOOO worth it!

Doc said...

DANA they are at it again...

The worst part is that the "DLS" is on me... I know what it it but not all of the content

Micky-T said...

Your HTML cannot be accepted: Tag is not allowed:

Leighann said...

Doc said...

The Mountain Cat said...

Puh-leez

Leighann said...

Screw you both.

The Mountain Cat said...

Leighann, I'm not even paying attention today. Good night.

Leighann said...

Well then screw you double.

Karen said...

Kid Rock is BFF with Rev. Run. He was on Rev's reality show and Rev's kids call him "Uncle Rock".

Doc, I am not sure anyone has ever had such deep thoughts about Petting Zoos before. Interesting.

Aunt Becky said...

Between Michael Johns (my boyfriend) and Carly being booted, I'm almost tempted to not watch Idol anymore.

I hate that little twerp, David. I want to punch him in the crotch.

Doc said...

Mt. Cat and Leighann ya'll play nice...

Karen... It's not Kid Rock and Run who concern me on that show... LOL!

Oh yeah and J. Geils band ROCKS


Hey Vin.... Shadow of the Day is on the radio.


Hey Aunt Becky! I'll hold him.. you punch him!

The Mountain Cat said...

Leighann, why are you mad at me? I am just expressing my fatigue. You were wonderful last night. Did we not cuddle?

Micky-T said...

Doc take a look at my site.

Micky-T said...

Changing subject:
Mountain Cat, how did you get that name, was it from Docs kitty cat from hell?

Doc said...

Mic - Check your e-mail

Lu' said...

Hey Mic, I emailed you about the italics Leighann helped me.

Leighann said...

Leighann, why are you mad at me? I am just expressing my fatigue. You were wonderful last night. Did we not cuddle?

HA! I'm not mad at you! Yes, last night was great but you're a little clingy for my taste. Next time don't cry when I say I have to leave!

Lu' said...

Damn I just heard your wrist bands glang. Wonder Woman's got nothing on you.

Doc said...

It's my mission to get Mic up to speed on HTML coding... at least the very basics....

So he can have bold and italicized

Micky-T said...

I emailed you about the italics Leighann helped me.

The Mountain Cat said...

Mick-T: Here is the link to the story I wrote about how I became the Mountain Cat:

http://yougoaheadandkeeponbelievingthat.blogspot.com/2008/01/origin-of-mountain-cat.html

And everyone has to bug Doc to write his story about how he became Doc.

Doc said...

Oh look at that, Randy Jackson stopped by! *giggle*

I bet he was looking for one of those Lion Candy bars...

Leighann said...

Leighann, No I cried bacause you didn't pay me. My pimp is coming after you. LOL

I didn't pay you because you tried to stick it in my ear!

Leighann said...

Leighann said...

Miss Merry Sunshine said...

The Mountain Cat said...

Leighann, Guys are fine with fake orgasms. Just love us.

Miss Merry Sunshine: No Goddamn cursing please. We can't fucking take it. Thank you.

Micky-T said...

LMAO @ MT.Cat

Miss Merry Sunshine said...

Oh thank fuck...I need a very large drink!!!

The AbsolutGator said...

Doc - The fact that you even watched Bill Mahr is disturbing enough. Its even worse that you quoted him. UGH!

The AbsolutGator said...

Leighann, Guys are fine with fake orgasms. Just love us.

To quote Dazed and Confused (instead of Bill Fuckin' Mahr), "There's just a little bit of bullshit in all that, right?"

Doc said...

Absolut... I wasn't wacthing Bill Mahr It was on Hardball with Chris Matthews.. I don't even get HBO anymore

Phfrankie Bondo said...

...I'm related to Mic...he's my bastard step-child!

Lesley said...

lol.. Ok , Doc.. Are you really related? Cool to find out that sort of thing or have you been keepin it a secret?
Knight- I too thought Mickey- T had a bandana covering his eyes.
Now he reminds me of steam boat Willy ( and I mean that in the nicest possible way :-)
