Another Nornna Classic - Nornna Dancing to Nelly



God, I just love her. I am a sick, sick man!
Her dancing skills are top notch.
She will be trying out for the next season of "So You Think You Can Dance."

With the Right Song and Dance, You Can Get Away With Murder







Thanks to Joy and Flix, I have decided to post my favorite dance routine from Chicago, one of my favorite musicals/movies of all time. I have seen the stage show four time, and was not disappointed with the movie version. I can't believe CZJ didn't break a hip filming all of the song and dance scenes and you know Renee was hopped up on Coke the entire shoot!

Their Uniforms Are Such a Turn Off

Sex With Nuns
Whether as a punishment or as a reward, the fates have decreed that you will spend eternity having sex with nuns. Better be careful though, they are 'Brides of Christ', and if he catches you at it he'll pull out your pubic hair.

This Must Be My Homo Ghetto Shiznit Name

We see your skinny geek ass. Yeah, it's pathetic. But not to worry, we also see what you really want to be inside; you want to be the shiznit. The goddamn rock solid ghetto shiznit, yo.

But let us tell you this: you'll never get anywhere without a suitably awe-inspiring name - and that's where we come in. See, through our years of research, we've developed a way to take your (currently humdrum, boring, middle class nerd) name and turn it into something special. We'll make you be somebody, yo.



My goddamn rock solid ghetto shiznit name is Ass Machine Shizzlemah.

Looking for the Escape Hatch





I have just finished listening to the new Gwen Stefani LP, "The Sweet Escape." Verdict... It sucks, and sucks hard. Why is she rehashing all of the same crap on this album?!? Now don't get me wrong, I really enjoyed 2004's "Love. Angel. Music. Baby.," but It seems as if she actually regressed on this album instead of maturing. She actually refers to L.A.M.B. in every song on the new album! It is wrong, wrong, wrong! I swear I could write better lyrics for half if not all of the songs on "The Sweet Escape." Gwen, I beg you to give up this solo effort and rejoin No Doubt.

Highlights of the Album: "The Sweet Escape" and "Wind it Up"... and this is me being generous!

OMG I am so lazy!

I have negleted my blogging duties over the past few weeks. Here is a fun quiz to tide everyone over!
You Are Corona

You don't drink for the love of beer. You drink to get drunk.
You prefer a very light, very smooth beer. A beer that's hardly a beer at all.
And while you make not like the taste of beer, you like the feeling of being drunk.
You drink early and often. Sometimes with friends. Sometimes alone. All the party needs is you!

Getting Ready This Morning



I woke up this morning in such a great mood. I had to capture my great disposition with my camera because I am usually in a crappy mood in the AM. Off to see the Dixie Chicks tonight!

Who will be People's Sexiest Man Alive 2006




I believe the honor will go to either "Grey's Anatomy," Patrick Dempsey or the star of the recent theatrical release "The Prestige," Hugh Jackman. Personally I think it should be Jake Gyllenhaal, but People Magazine tends to give their cover to dudes over 30.

HAHA, PERFECT



Update:

Sen. Hillary Clinton, speaking at a Kingston campaign stop this morning, joined the chorus of Democrats criticizing Sen. John Kerry for what the former presidential candidate has called a joke gone awry. "What Sen. Kerry said was inappropriate," she said.

Bullshit, that was no joke! What an idoit, trying to backpedal out of this one! I listened to the audio both on the radio and on television. He needs to shut his god damn mouth and get the hell off the political stage. I understand where Kerry is coming from, but this kind orhetoricic could hurt the Democrats chances in the run up to the election. Even though I hate all career politicians, Democrats and Republics alike, I have to give props to those Democrats criticizing Kerry.

With A Heavy Heart, I Give Y'all Sad News



After 35 years of hosting the popular CBS daytime game show "The Price is Right," host Bob Barker will be retiring in June. This news breaks my spirit. I grew up watching TPIR, and when I was an undergrad, I tried to schedule my classes between TPIR and "As The World Turns." Extremely pathetic, I know. After his retirement, I am positive that we will see an increase in the pet population in the United States. I need to go to LA and get on the show before the end of June. I have always had my heart set on playing the ever popular Plinko game. I would tear that board up!

Question: Who should replace Bob Barker as the host of "The Price is Right"

Answer: Cancel the God Damn show. No one can take the place of that old pervert!

Happy, Happy Birthday iBaby


I would like to wish the iPod a very happy 5th birthday. What did I do before you came into my life December 25, 2001? You have saved me many a time from idiots on campus trying to get me to sign dumb ass petitions, sign up for various clubs, and even those pesky Christians who pass out the little New Testament Bibles. Though I do not have the original anymore, due to the fact that you passed away two years after your creation, your replacement has not failed me to date.

My Top 11 Most Played Songs on my iPod:

1. Everything to Me - Liz Phair
2. Don't Forget Me - Way Out West
3. Lose Control - Missy Elliot
4. You Look So Fine - Garbage
5. Forgive - Rebecca Lynn Howard
6. Here I Am - Patty Loveless
7. Maps - Yeah Yeah Yeahs
8. Queer - Garbage
9. Safe and Sound - Sheryl Crow
10. You Look So Fine (Eric Kupper Deep Drama Mix) - Garbage
11. Open Your Eyes - Snow Patrol

Set the Fire to the Third Bar



Here is a live performance of Snow Patrol and Martha Wainwright singing the haunting song "Set the Fire to the Third Bar." I have been a huge Martha Wainwright fan and have just been introduced to Snow Patrol. Their voices together blend well and takes this average song to the next level. If you need a laugh, this video will supply one or two. Check out the lead singer of Snow Patrol. He totally spazzes out while singing.

Law & Order: Sexy Villian's Unit

After watching Law & Order: SVU this evening I ran to my computer to Google the actor Timothy Adams, the guest star who played a narsistic rapist. He really brought sexy back to sex crimes. (I kidd, I kidd...)



I Love YouTube.com

I swear, how did we survive without YouTube? I was searching for cheesy Ronnie Milsap music videos, and stumbled upon this doozy. This footage looks as if it were shot for an awards show of some sort and features Ms. Patti LaBelle singing along side Ronnie. The song is called "Love Certified," and it is a total riot. I can not lie, I really dig this song.

DVD Review "Friends With Money"


"Friends With Money" examines the shifting relationships between four women who have been friends all of their adult lives. Now as they settle into their early middle age, their friendship is increasingly challenged by the ever-growing disparity in their individual degrees of financial comfort. It is a poignant snapshot of the way we live today, where the safe divisions that class and money have created are eroding under the unstoppable force of everyday life and the result is a painfully hilarious examination of modern life that manages to be both brutally honest and ultimately uplifting.

The three friends with money, Franny (Joan Cusack), Jane (Frances McDormand), and Christine (Catherine Keener), share a concern for Olivia (Jennifer Aniston) who seems unable to make a living or sustain a relationship ­ at least by their standards. Their group examination of her lack of options magnifies each of their own doubts and concerns about the marriages and careers to which they have committed themselves.

Olivia, meanwhile, drifts through each of her friends’ lives, at times avoiding the issue of money altogether, and at other times accepting her friends’ painful generosity. Ultimately, Olivia will find satisfaction and stability from an unexpected place, but her own somewhat happy ending is muted by the harsh reality of the suddenly disassembled lives of her best friends.

"Friends With Money" is also about the unexpected challenges of being an adult. It is about facing the reality of one's place in the world; about confronting a new stage of sexuality and attractiveness; about realizing you still have lots of time left to live even though many of life's major benchmarks may be behind you. It is about being honest with yourself and those you care most deeply about. Does a degree of financial security conscript one to a life of comfort that ultimately becomes a kind of gilded cage? Does a reduced measure of financial security, in fact, represent a greater degree of freedom and choice? The film forces into focus a strong group of relationships that have long gone unexamined, as each confronts a new stage in life.

I highly recommend this movie to anyone who appreciates character studies and analysis. Jennifer Aniston is at her best in this short 88 minute film.

First Day of School Photo



I don't know about all of you, but when I was younger my mother always took a picture of me on the first day of school. Well I kept the tradition rolling. Here is the first day of school photo taken by yours truly. Don't I look happy? Well it only got better from that moment... yeah right! What have I gotten myself into?!?

My Night With DXC

Sorry it has taken me so long to update and fill you guys in on my travels to Southern California and beyond. The highlight of my vacation was on Wednesday, September 20, when my cousin Lucy and I drove from Coronado to Downtown Los Angeles to attend the taping of VH1’s Storytellers: Dixie Chicks. The Dixie Chicks have been hands down my favorite country artists, except for the Kings of Country, George Strait an Ronnie Milsap. WE left Coronado at around 3:30pm in order to arrive for the pre party in which we were invited. Well thanks to nasty Los Angeles traffic, we managed to make it to the slums of Downtown LA by 7:15 when the party was wrapping up. Figures!

Lucy and I decided to get a bite of food at the Carl’s Jr. across the street. Talk about ghetto central, there were at least 4 rent-a-cops in the establishment. We felt really safe. After we through some nasty Carl’s Jr. down our gullets, we walked across the street to the famed LA Theatre.



Since we had bought out tickets, we were branded with a blue wristband, allowing us to be the second group to be seated. I, being the big mouth that I am, saw a P.A. walking around with a few black wristbands in her hand. I politely whisked her aside and asked if my cousin and I could have the black wristbands, and low and behold she said sure. I really felt as if I was a mover and a shaker at this point. We were sooooo LA.

When the first group was escorted into the auditorium, the black group, we were all placed on stage in chairs facing the chicks, and some in back of the band. Lucy and I were place in the first row, facing Emily (Wonky Eye), the Banjo player. We were on cloud nine; until the cameraman came up to a P.A. and said that he need a chair removed so he could obtain his shot. Well that is when we were asked to move three rows back! We took it with a grain of salt. We were still on stage and about 10 feet from the band, so it was all good!


The concert was amazing! They were so friendly and personable. I even got to shake Emily’s (Wonky Eye) hand. They played for about three hours, and had to play three songs over due to technical difficulties. After the concert, they took questions from the audience regarding their songwriting techniques and abilities. This is one concert I will never forget. Oh, and the stars were out in "full force" that night. I met Chris Kattan, and saw Lance Bass and his sexy boyfriend Reichen in the audience. Reichen had left the theatre before I could have gone up to him and molested him. Oh well his loss really!

Scrolling Through My iPod

While I was walking from the parking lot to the classroom I decided to scroll through my iPod and find a song that I had not listened to in a while. What a treat it was when I landed on "I Wish I Didn't Miss You" by Neo Soul Songtress Angie Stone. Since I could not attach the song on blogger, I am providing the video for your viewing pleasure. I just found out that she is on VH1's Celebrity Fit Club. Oh how the mighty have fallen.

I am a Bowl Full of Wrong


Here I am on Friday night, drunk out of my mind and hamming it up for the camera. Sorry to those of you who I drunk dialed. The only thing I hate about being drunk is that my friend, Mr. Wonky Eye, makes an appearance. This picture is very sexy! I should set this picture as the default picture on my Match.com proflie. Boys will be knocking down the doors to get to THIS.

I've Still Got Sand In My Shoes...

I am back, by popular demand. I just returned home to Sacramento last night from a week long vacation. I had a blast, hangin' out in Coronado, San Diego, LA, and Texas, but it sure went by fast! Oh, how I wish I was still on vacation, but alas.

I will let you know all the details of my night with the Dixie Chicks in a couple of days. It was one of the most awesome experiences of my short life. Grad School begins on Thursday, so their goes my life of leisure. While I was away, some great photos of Justin surfaced on the net from the recent issue of Bon Magazine. Damn, he is one fine ass mofo!

VH1 Storytellers - Dixie Chicks


What a pleasant surprise it was when I checked my email last night and was offered to purchase tickets to VH1 Storytellers taping of the Dixie Chicks. It is going to take place on Wednesday, Sept. 20, 2006 in LA. It so happens that I will be on the first leg of my vacation down in Coronado. I bought two tickets, and my cousin Lucy and I are going to drive up from Coronado to LA for the taping. It is great because it is going to be filmed in a theater with about 300 in attendance. There is a pre-party hosted by Grey Goose and gift bags will be given out as well. I hope that the Chicks themselves will be at the pre-party, cause I need a picture with those hot bitches.

Garbage - Run Baby Run

I am THE BIGGEST Garbage fan out there. I have not shown them any love on my blog as of yet. So, here is the rarely seen video for the song "Run Baby Run" off of Garbage's 2005 album Bleed Like Me. I personally hate this video, but love the song. I can't believe that the director, Sophie Muller, would actually produce show a crappy video, but alas. If it is any consolation, Shirley looks great, as usual.

Nornna Video of the Day

In this video, Nornna gives her audience insight into her lazy eye problem, and then attempts to treat her eyes with some sort of eye drop solution. Enjoy!

Shut Up and Sing


From the online edition of Entertainment Weekly:

If you think singer Natalie Maines had some harsh words for President Bush in public, wait till you hear what she had to say about him behind the scenes.

In one memorable scene,from the upon coming release of the new documentary, Dixie Chicks: Shut Up and Sing, Maines watches news footage of the president being interviewed about the furor that followed the singer's on-stage comment that she was ''ashamed the President of the United States is from Texas,'' which resulted in the group being dropped from most radio stations, as well as protests and plummeting sales. ''The Dixie Chicks are free to speak their mind,'' Bush told Tom Brokaw at the time, adding, ''They shouldn't have their feelings hurt just because some people don't want to buy their records when they speak out. You know, freedom is a two-way street.''

After watching this footage, Maines repeats the president's comment about how the group shouldn't have their ''feelings hurt,'' incredulous, and then says, ''What a dumb f---.'' She then looks into the camera, as if addressing Bush, and reiterates, ''You're a dumb f---.''

I can't tell you how much I love this fiesty woman. I have been a Dixie Chicks fan even before Natalie joined the group back in the late 90's. I can't wait until November when I get to catch them in concert in Sacramento and Oakland. Keep on keeping on girls, I back you up 100%.

Lunch Break - Gonna Get Me Some FutureSex/LoveSounds



Today is the day, all I hope is that this album doesn't suck.

UPDATE: Well after a quick listen, I am pleasantly surprised. Tracks 3 and 7 are definite singles.

Everybody Needs a Little R&R in Their Day

I am one of Rachael Ray's biggest fans, but I will have a problem catching her new daytime show, Rachael Ray, due to the fact that I am not a housewife. I guess I will have to invest in a TIVO. This synopsis of Rachael Ray's foray into the talk show arena is courtesy of the daytime show's website, Rachael Ray.


"Rachael Ray, TV's most down-to-earth and relatable star, launches her brand new, one-hour daily syndicated series, appropriately named "Rachael Ray" on September 18. The show will be an exciting and unpredictable hour of fun that celebrates the can-do spirit in every person and gives viewers the essentials for whole-hearted living.

Showcasing Rachael's signature warmth, energy and her boundless curiosity for all aspects of life, the series will engage viewers and in-studio audiences with a personal, hands-on, celebratory approach to life the Rachael Ray way. While Rachael will continue to heat up the kitchen with her creative signature dishes, she will also take her audience beyond to explore all facets of life and good living.

There will be unpredictable escapades that will open eyes, encourage smiles and portray life in new, interesting ways. There will be no boundaries, no guidelines and no topics untouched. "Rachael Ray" will focus on the good of everyday people and celebrate life in its most authentic forms. Viewers will discover something new, learn something fun and realize that life just doesn't have to be that hard because everybody needs a little R and R."

Talk about cheesy... wait, I ain't gonna lie, I love it!
8 days and counting until the premiere of Rachael Ray .

Totally Beddable - Jensen Ackles


Jensen Ackles is the star of the WB's CW's horror themed drama series, Supernatural. I do not watch this program, but these recent pictures may change my viewing habits.
