The Dump!

video

This video and dance is for anyone who has ever been at an event where there's dancing. You know what I mean, you're out there on the floor and the dreaded "circle" forms. People are forced to go dance in a circle surrounded by other partiers. Sure, women have it easy. They go into the circle, wiggle around and look sexy, even if they have no idea what they're doing. But if you're a guy, and you can't bring it like Michael Jackson or that kid from "Stomp The Yard," what do you do? You're going to look like a fool no matter what you do, so why not do...

"The Dump"

This dance was fueled, quite possibly, by too much tequila at a friend's wedding in Mexico. Thanks to my co-dancer Dan for looking like an idiot (and by idiot, I mean GENIUS) with me.

Stay tuned for future videos of new dances I've created to help you out!

P.S.- I'm the one in white...

Twisted Sister

While rocking out to Twisted Sister, on the arena rock channel, for BMMan Jr. this morning, I was reminded of the best use of a song in a movie:

During the scene in Iron Eagle where Dougie Masterson's friends (I forgot what they called themselves, but I'm sure someone who posts on here will...however, if you look it up online, I will be far less impressed), which I think included the kid who played Oliver on the Brady Bunch, run around the Air Force base tricking people into giving them maps and plans and stuff, all while "We're Not Gonna Take It" plays in the background.

Awesome.

If A Tree Falls In The Forest...

Apparently, Winger released a greatest hits collection in 2001.

A Quick Reminder

This morning, I was reminided of one of the reasons I married my wife:

As we were changing BMMan Junior's third dump filled diaper of the morning, I called him by his mob name, "Moosie Three Poops," when she bust out, with no prompting, "C 3 Poopio!"

Awesome.

Maybe someday he'll have his sidekick, R 2 Dump 2!

Songs I'll Never Turn Off

Listening to the radio in the car the other day, I came up with a list of songs that I will never turn off if they come on the radio:

Paradise City/Sweet Child O' Mine - GnR

Dream On/Cryin'/Dude Looks Like A Lady - Aerosmith

Santa Monica - Everclear

Don't Look Back In Anger - Oasis

You Shook Me All Night Long/Highway To Hell/Money Talks/Thunderstruck - AC/DC

Honky Tonk Woman - The Stones

FreeBird - Lynyrd Skynyrd

Story Of My Life - Social Distortion

Wait - White Lion

Baby Got Back - Sir Mix A Lot

There are many many more songs, both by these artists and others that I would never turn off, but the problem is I would never hear most of them on the radio in the first place. Feel free to add others to the list...

"Theyah mysogenatin, and they ain't even old timey!"

-The above quote is one of my favorites from "O Brother Where Art thou," which brings me to my first thought...

I don't like rap music and/or hip-hop. Never have, and I probably never will. That said, my sister-in-law gave us a mix she made and on it were two songs which reinforced my theory that I WOULD like rap/hip-hop if it actually had any music accompanying it. There was one of thos mix songs of "Man of Constant Sorrow" mixed with "Hollaback Girl" (I know, not exactly rap or hip-hop), and it actually sounds pretty good. But what impressed me even more, was how much I liked Nelly's "Country Grammar" when it was dubbed over "Sweet Home Alabama."

-I dug out my copy of Reel Big Fish's "Why Do They Rock So Hard" yesterday and played it while I was feeding BMMan Jr. That's a great album.

-Ok, I know that I may be alienating all of the people who read this and post on here (mainly because I can name most of you), but this really bugs me...

Hollywood liberals.

I'm a democrat. I voted for Clinton twice, Gore (I mean, how could you not vote for him, he invented the internet), and finally Kerry. I generally fall on the democrat side of most issues. That said, the ultra liberals in Hollywood (just as the ultra conservatives do) make me sick. It's one thing when someone intelligent speaks about their liberal views. I may not agree, but I realize that there is some intelligence and thought behind what they're saying. BUt actors and musicians should just shut-up. This is why I don't like it when actors and musicians end up getting political, because ultimately, I disagree with what they're saying and end up not likeing them anymore. Here are two classic examples, with the most recent and, to me, offensive:

GREEN DAY: I was never the biggest Green Day fan, but I always liked some of their stuff. However, they have alienated me forever with their idiotic (appropriately) American Idiot. If you want to be against the war, that's your prerogative (As Bobby Brown sang, "You can do what you want to do."). But then they have "Holiday" in which they compare Bush to Hitler. I find this insanely inappropriate and pretty offensive to boot. I don't like Bush and I think he's an idiot, but there is a galaxy of difference between Bush and Hitler and to even compare Bush to Hitler is just flat out wrong. Hey Green Day, if you think Bush is really like that, maybe you should leave the country and go live somewhere that'll be more accepting of you and your views. A-holes.

Tim Robbins and Suan Sarandon: Not offensive, just flat-out stupid. I saw an interview with them a few summers ago after the Baseball Hall of Fame uninvited them from a celebration they were having for the 15th Anniversary of the release of "Bull Durham." They were uninvited because of their stance on the war in Iraq. Robbins started spouting off about how the Hall of Fame was violating their Fourth Amendment rights. Oh really Tim? What did they illegally search and seize from you? Oh, wait, you meant the FIRST Amendment? My bad. Oh, that's right, they're a private organization, which means they can do whatever the hell they want. Before you get up on a soapbox and start spouting off your nonsense, try having an idea what you're talking about.

Accident...

So on my way home from work on Thursday evening, I got into an accident. This stupid woman who was driving in the opposite direction, tried to make a left hand turn across the two lanes of traffic and drove head on into me. Luckily, she wasn't going too fast and I, going about 30 mph, was able to slam on the brakes. That said, my car is probably what the insurance company will consider "a total loss" because both of my airbags deployed and the transmission is probably what they call "all f---ed up" (don't feel bad if you've never heard that before, it's an industry term). This totally sucks because I'll get fair market value from the insurance company for my car, but that's probably nowhere near what I'll need to buy a new car, and nowhere near what it's ACTUAL value was to me (i.e., running and working).

Anyway, the biggest indignity of the whole thing came afterwards while I was standing on the sidewalk waiting for the cops to show up. So of course, this happens on the coldest day of the year, and my nose was running a little bit. This guy came out of a nearby deli, and upon seeing my car on the sidewalk and me standing right there goes, "Oh my g-d, are you okay? Did you hit your nose?"

Amd I was like, "No, why, is it bleeding?" (I hadn't seen my reflection yet and felt my nose running, so I though maybe I had hit my nose on the airbag even though I didn't think I had).

"No, but it looks a little swollen."

To which I answered, dejectedly, "No, that's just my nose."

That story is probably a little funnier if you know me and know what my awful, four-times broken and crooked nose looks like.
