dirty deeds... and the dunderchief


is that the stars in the sky or is it rain fallin' down


man, what a great movie. the best part is at the end, charlton heston, shot straight through the lung, is such a fightin' man's man that he can beat the tar out of the dude that's chasing him. you know that castrol commercial that shows the 'real men' coming up to the dude using manly motor oil? the hockey player, the fireman? charlton heston could pwn them all, and he's like 90. he's a real man.

i always hoped that that image would disappear, slowly, with our generation. like i hoped that racism and that hard-nosed 50's suit-wearing-briefcase-toting corporate stooge as a businessman concept. we can thank IT for that, i think, there's too many of us in corporate america and we all like sandals and shirts with leetspeak. but i think the man's man thing is gonna stick around a while longer, and racism probably will too, a few more generations.

so i'm thinking about selling my xbox for a used PS2. for two reasons - guitar hero and god of war. nothing compelling has been released for the xbox for a while. i'm not planning on getting a 360 anytime soon (not til they fix the hardware issues), but it'll happen eventually, so i'll keep halo 2 around. i think renee has been trying to keep me away from guitar hero because she'll have to listen to me play it. a reasonable course of action.

did some stuffed chicken parmesan tonight. tip for all of you cookin' folk out there - make sure your oil isn't over 400 degrees before you drop your chicken in, unless your recipe is for charcoal in the shape of a breast fillet. on a side note, flash frying things is pretty frickin cool. i need to make more things stuffed - the chicken worked well, but i need something besides cheese and garlic and oregano... maybe some ricotta... gosh that'd be good.

one of my favorite west wing's was on tonight, noel from season two. best leo quote ever:

"This guy's walking down the street when he falls in a hole. The walls are so steep he can't get out. A doctor passes by and the guy shouts up, 'Hey you. Can you help me out?' The doctor writes a prescription, throws it down in the hole and moves on. Then a priest comes along and the guy shouts up, 'Father, I'm down in this hole can you help me out?' The priest writes out a prayer, throws it down in the hole and moves on. Then a friend walks by, 'Hey, Joe, it's me can you help me out?' And the friend jumps in the hole. Our guy says, 'Are you stupid? Now we're both down here.' The friend says, 'Yeah, but I've been down here before and I know the way out.' "

Yeah, you seriously need to trash that XBox and get the PS2...it's so much better!

Blogger Bragg Says:

Before you trash the Box, let get a look at some of them games. I might buy them from you for what you'd get at the gamestop.

And I love that West Wing episode.

The West Wing may very well be one of the greatest damned shows ever. For the last few months I've been hitting up the local library to rent each season - I'm up to season four now - cause I never had enough of a set schedule at home to watch them live. I have to be careful when reading your site to avoid any spoilers from seasons past. :-)

q - yeah man, it's frickin great. good call on hitting the library, it'd probably be cheaper than netflix.

Blogger Justin Hall Says:

steve: i have GTA: san andreas, both halos, and burnout: revenge. turns out gamestop will only give me $50 for the console, tho, and a new PS2 is $130.
