Undercover Brother a "Smash Hit"

While practicing for a charity race yesterday to promote the upcoming film Redline, actor and comedian Eddie Griffin crashed a $1.5 million dollar Ferrari Enzo into a barricade after taking a turn too fast.

The film's publicist told reporters that Griffin had been "completely unscratched" but had been a "little shaken". Meanwhile, Daniel Sadek who is the owner of the car and was kind enough to loan his virtually irreplaceable automobile to this charity is out of his now totaled 1-in-400 series Ferrari sports car. Sadek told reporters, "I'm glad Eddie came out of the crash okay, but my dream car got destroyed". He also stated that, "I went to my trailer for about 15 minutes and I thought, there's people dying every day. A lot worse things are happening in the world".

There were only 400 Ferrari Enzos made, all between 2002 and 2004 and now this poor guy is the proud owner of a completely totaled one. There's no fixing it because no replacement frames/chassis exist. What makes things worse is, I see the studio and Griffin both fighting him on this. I can almost hear them saying, "Well, you did offer it for charity. You should have known there were risks".

If I had been the owner and it was my car that was totaled, I'd go on a disgruntled postal worker killing spree, and I'd make fucking sure that both Griffin and that cunt publicist were well expired. One in the head, one in the chest. You just destroyed my $1.5 million dollar baby. There is no question, no negotiating, no other form of satisfaction. YOU MUST DIE... IMMEDIATELY! - (Source)

A Farewell to Rome

Last night marked the series finale of HBO's Rome. Though often embellished and historically inaccurate, Rome was one of the most elaborate, most entertaining and most expensive series ever to be shown on TV. I guess this explains the $80+ price tag on the DVD collection of season 1. It was said to have started as a mini-series but after receiving such high praise and critical acclaim, Rome was slotted for a second season. Now that the second season has come to a close and no third season lies upon the horizon, fans speculate that it will eventually make its way to the big screen, such as HBO's Deadwood is expected to as well.

The series began just after Gaius Julius Caesar (played by CiarĂ¡n Hinds) conquered Gaul, though the real story starts when you are first introduced to Lucius Vorenus (played by Kevin McKidd) and Titus Pullo (played by Ray Stevenson). Together, they form Caesar's seemingly indestructible duo and are often the focus of each episode. Turn the page and you will be seduced by the long-standing cat fight between Atia of the Julii (played by Polly Walker) and Servilia of the Junii (played by Lindsay Duncan). Together, these two actresses drag you into their world kicking and screaming, but when it is all over you are filled with a barrel of winding emotions that tantalize your brain and warm your heart.

Ok, enough back story. Want to know more? Watch the show. Rome is gone and I already miss it.

Now I want to take the time to give a high, healthy and hearty "FUCK YOU" to HBO. They continually feed me outstanding programming, literally the best there ever was on television, and then like a tablecloth in a cheesy magician's trick, they yank it from under me. They warm you and make you feel all fuzzy inside and then they shove you out in the cold and make you wait for the next fire to burn. They deal entertainment like it was crack and just when you get used to a certain fix, they change suppliers and leave you with the shakes until you adjust to your new high. They are evil I tell you, EVIL!

So... why do I keep going back?

Kyle Smith deems the movie 300 "Barbaric"

This stupid motherfucker Kyle Smith reviewed the movie "300" for the NY Post and he summed his review up in one word... BARBARIC.

Barbaric? You stupid fucking piece of media shit. Its a fucking gladiator movie and I hate to break it to you but gladiators were FUCKING BARBARIC!!! What did you expect? Were you hoping for a bunch of Spartan faggots beating each other with foam penises? Gladiators wore armor, they fought with swords and axes and they FUCKING KILLED EACH OTHER! I hope you choke on the popcorn you eat at your next review viewing you liberal sugar-footed ass wipe. I hope you choke and you die.

I am now part of the Collective

As many of you may already know, I am a gamer. I have been playing video games since I was very young. In fact, I at one time or another owned every game system that has made its way to the United States (with the exception of the Vectrex Arcade System and having not owned it haunts me to this very day. Honestly.) Anyway, I am a gamer and as a gamer, I have had one cardinal rule. I simply refuse to pay-to-play any game, which is common practice for all MMORPGs such as Everquest and Star Wars Galaxies.

MMORPG (Massive Multi-Player Online Role Playing Game)

Well, a friend let me in on the news that you can download a 10-day free trial of World of Warcraft. So, after a bit of self-turmoil, I bucked up and downloaded the free demo. Damned if I didn't like it. FUCK! I never thought this would happen. I never thought that I would be sucked in to a subscription-based game. I feel so cheap now. So used. So.... joyful! This game is fucking great! Click the image below to download the free trial and if you do, let me know and I'll tell you my character name and the realm I call home.

Snow way in Hell...

After nine straight days of constant snowfall, the small town of Redfield, NY has found themselves buried under a whopping 12 feet of snow. TWELVE FUCKING FEET OF SNOW! And what's worse is that more is on the way. Due to the clearing of the roads, some folks in Redfield have snow banks in front of their houses reaching as high as 16 feet. I like the snow, I really do, but if I ever find myself under twelve-plus feet of snow (with 16-foot snow banks), I'm fucking moving.

Sexual Harassment in the Work Place

I have a friend who has recently been accused of Sexual Harassment in the Workplace. Immediately after the accusation was made, he was tentatively terminated without pay and had to go home and tell his wife he was fired for Sexual Harassment. Well, after explaining the situation to her honestly and thoroughly, she agreed that the charges were absurd and that she has every intention of helping him fight it. You see, lucky for my friend, he's married to an Attorney who works for a firm that specializes in yep, you guessed it, Sexual Harassment.

Now, due to the fact that this is an on-going case, I have to watch what I say. Without divulging any information, I'll paint you a picture of what took place that caused his female co-worker to feel that she had been sexually harassed.

My friend, who for the sake of anonymity we will call John, had gone to work that day like any other normal day. Well, he and a male co-worker began discussing the Super Bowl and of course, the commercials. I mean, who talks about the Super Bowl without talking about the commercials? (There's a reason why they cost close to $2 Million Dollars for each 30-seconds of air time.) Anyway, Jane (clever, I know. lol) who is a female co-worker of John's overheard him tell his friend that he, "thought the BoDog commercials were just as bad as when Janet whipped one out last year." That was the statement that "offended" Jane and caused her to file a Sexual Harassment grievance with management and is what ultimately may cost John his job.

Now, I guess I can see where someone may be offended by the statement "whipped one out", but I would never consider that Sexual Harassment. I mean, it's not like John approached Jane and said, "Hey, Jane, go ahead and whip one out for us." Now that would be sexual harassment. In John's situation, it's simply a case of someone being offended by something that was said. That's all. Though because "Sexual Harassment" is such a sensitive subject and companies fear the threat of disparaging press and multi-million dollar law suits, they jumped at the first cry and acted irrationally. Shame on his employer for not having the balls to tell Jane that she was blowing the situation way out of proportion and shame on Jane for not being more thick-skinned. My guess was that "Jane" was some ugly, shy cat-lady who kept her distance from everyone in the office and as it turns out, I was right!

Sensative, but funny none-the-less.

I saw this video while futzing around on YouTube and even though it is a PSA for the sensative subject of "Date Rape", I foud it amusing that the girl is white, the guy is black and the song playing is "Color Blind" by Counting Crows. ROFLMAO

The Super Bowl Commercials (or Lack Thereof)

I have to say that when it came to the commercials, this was the worst Super Bowl ever. There were only a handful of new commercials and only a few of them were mildly entertaining. In my opinion, only the Fist Pump commercial for Bud Light (see video above) was memorable. Where were the Budweiser Clydesdales? Where was the Geico Gecko? Where was that gut-busting hilarious ad that you can't wait to go into work and talk about? I was severely disappointed and I hope that things will get better next year.

Super Bowl XLI




The Super Bowl is over and the Indianapolis Colts beat the Chicago Bears by a score of 29-17. From the start of the game things looked bad for the Colts when Chicago's Devin Hester ran the opening kick off back for a touchdown. But the Colts hankered down and fought their way to victory. I am glad to see Peyton Manning finally get the championship he deserves. Now, hopefully the comparisons to Dan Marino will cease.

This game also marks the first time in history when an African American coach has won the Super Bowl. I know it is a milestone. I know what it means to the movement and I certainly know what it means to the African American community. I still can't help but say that I am certainly glad that its over with. The fact that there were two African American coaches in the Super Bowl vehemently over-shadowed what the Super Bowl is supposed to be about, which of course is football.
