Having A Laugh At Swine Flu

Posted in Events, News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 30, 2009 by Production Team

No matter what you choose to call it, a lot of people seem to be upset about this thing.

Well, personally I couldn’t be less concerned about it, not until contracting and dying of it becomes more likely than making an NBA roster. So for now let’s have a laugh shall we? This post is dedicated to all those shaking in their space boots about the flu.

See that? Even the cute little piggy has a sense of humor about it – you sneaky devil!

Now if that isn’t the cutest thing… two swine flu victims showing that they won’t let it come between them!

Double awwwwww

A couple extras: play a game where you ARE the flu attacking the human race; and read a phunnyz chat convo about the flu between two jolly blokes.

See? It ain’t so bad. More like a trend than a flu!

Throwbows Thursday

The Original Superman

On Tuesday night Orlando Magic center Dwight Howard lost his cool and threw an elbow, earning him a one game suspension. He will be sorely missed when his teammates try to finish off the Sixers tonight in Philly. This situation got me thinking a few things…

Shaq looked good in a pinstriped Magic uni, but especially in black.
Jerseys nowadays are just too form-fitted.
Why hasn’t more been made of Dwight Howard’s hijacking of the Superman nickname?
Dude can fly, but Shaq was untouchable in his prime.
At least when Shaq lost his cool, he had enough sense to whiff…hard.

Let’s talk real throwbacks for a moment…

POD007877012Whereas the Orlando Magic have only been around for 20 years, their playoff opponents, the Philadelphia 76ers, are the oldest franchise in the NBA. This picture just does it for me. Wilt and Bill, two of the all time greats going at it, clean unis, color photo, long socks and short shorts. The NBA doesn’t get much better than this.

Once again we have a case of a relocated franchise. Even the Sixers are not originally from the city in which they currently reside.

"We talking about practice."

You guessed it. The Syracuse Nationals were the original team name and location for the Sixers.

Iverson held it down in Philly for good while, sporting all types of looks, but this is a favorite…

nba_g_jordan_iverson_580Jordan is stealing show in the battle of 90s uniforms here. I gotta say, there is something about pinstripes on the dark uniforms, more teams need to try it.

That should do it for Round 1. Throwback Thursdays will return next week for some Round 2 action.

So Long Cheap Seats

Rockies Dodgers Spring Baseball

"That will be $99, thanks."

The only remaining semi-decent cheap seats in Dodger Stadium have now multiplied in price thanks to a promotional idea involving superstar Manny Ramirez.

The infamous left field pavilion at Chavez Ravine will now be dubbed Mannywood, because of its promixity to the left fielder. Now if you plan to sit in the left field bleachers, don’t expect to find a deal for $5, but rather $50. But it’s all good, you get a t-shirt with your purchase.

Some argue being 350 feet from home plate is no fun, while others enjoy watching Manny make errors from up close. That is why we go to Dodger games, to see Manny field, not bat…right?

Tasty Bevvies: The Undisputed Cola Champion

Posted in Tasty Bevvies with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 29, 2009 by Production Team

Delicious. Textured. Spicy. Strong & Natural.

Yes, Natural.

Just to silence the skeptics, take a look at the ingredients in this new King of Colas:

  • Water
  • Sugar
  • Carbon dioxide
  • Natural caramel flavor
  • Natural flavors from plant extracts (0.37%): galangal, vanilla, mustard seed, lime, kola nut, cocoa, liquorice, cinnamon, lemon, ginger, coca leaf, orange, corn mint, pine, cardamom, mace, clove, and lemon juice concentrate
  • Caffeine from coffee beans.
  • If you’ve ever had a Coca-Cola in Europe or Mexico, you have tasted the stark difference between Sugar and High Fructose Corn Syrup. The taste of Red Bull Cola is similar, but with a deeper spice than Coke, presumably because of all the plant extracts (mace! yummmm….). It’s got the same carbonation sting you’ve come to love from all the name-brand sodas, making for a thoroughly enjoyable Colaxation experience.

    The one stinkin’ gripe is the name. Why, oh why, Red Bull, did you have to associate an all-natural cola brand with your chemical wasteland energy drink? It would have done dreams for this beverage to call it something else. Instead this fantastic product is probably going to be off shelves before anyone realized it was on them.

    My advice to you is to try one, and spread the word like it’s swine flu.

    And the next classic movie from my childhood to be ruined issss…..

    Posted in Movies, News with tags , , , , , , on April 28, 2009 by Production Team

    Drop Dead Fred.

    Yep, the wacky, hilarious, creepy and sad movie about an annoying, provocative invisible friend named Fred is being remade.

    Not much about the movie has surfaced, except that the man chosen for the lead role of Fred will be Forgetting Sarah Marshall’s Russell Brand, who did a great job in that role but I’m not sure how I feel about him filling the shoes of.. uh, whoever the.. Rik Mayall. Yea, Rik Mayall, my hero.

    He seems more Scissorhands than Fred.

    Here’s hoping it’s at least watchable.

    ZOMG, Michael Jackson is Weird??

    Posted in Art, Events, Music, News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 28, 2009 by Production Team

    Ok so you know how when people go broke they make matters  significantly worse by desperately selling off the ridiculous shit they owned super super publically, showing their ass completely to the public, further disgracing their image and humiliating themselves and their loved ones? And then all those criminal accusations that were sorta ambiguous when they surfaced and resurfaced come roaring back like Mufasa when everyone sees what was inside that person’s house? But then they get embarrassed or whatever, and maybe realize there was another way to make their debt back, and so they cancel the auction once a bunch of people have already seen it?

    No? You don’t know what I’m talking about?

    Oh, right…. there is only one MJ.

    And “the real MJ” was again partially exposed recently when the Beverly Hilton hosted the Michael Jackson collection. Just check out some of these pictures.

    “‘If I can only find a white man, with a black man sound, I could make a million dollars’ Sam Phillips, Sun Record.” Ok.

    1240011704-dscn2868

    Two original compositions by MJ (top) and Mccully Culkin. Duhh obviously…

    Now excuse me while I go back to my regularly scheduled life and pretend none of this ever happened.

    Via The Stranger.
