Studio 60!

Speaking of shows that shouldn't have been cancelled, I'd like to add Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip to the list. That show was funny and witty and didn't talk down to you or pretend you were a simpleton. I mean, sure, it made fun of everyone in the red states at every opportunity. Who doesn't do that? But it also gave them an intelligent voice who was devote without acting like the stereotypical nut-job. This is what fair and balanced really would look like. Boo NBC for canning this show.

Although I will give them props for renewing Friday Night Lights. What I don't get is why Medium and Friday Night Lights were renewed (both are in last place in their time slots), yet Studio 60 is canned.

Tuesday, May 22, 2007 SAVE JERICHO!

Just saw at that CBS is canceling Jericho. Now, while not as good as Heroes, Jericho is a decent TV show with an original premise that, to me examined the fascinating implications of the power grid and economy falling apart. If you want to petition to help save it, try here.

My Pseudo-Sisters

I really like my sisters-in-law. They're fun, amusing, and give me a good idea of what living in a house without a 4 to 1 male/female ratio would have been like.

For example, I've noticed that they NEVER have a WWF wrestling match in the basement or try to hold pillow fights in the dark. Violent video games don't interest them. They don't have contests to see who can drink the most Mountain Dew before they have to pee. They don't embarrass each other in public or fight for shotgun in the front seat as if they're very life depends on it. When they play that "slug bug" game, they don't even leave a bruise. They don't compete in literally everything they do.

Its like they are...well...girls. Its weird.

Manly Movie Weekend

Side Note: there was no post yesterday because we were without internet all day.

Sue is working this weekend, so I've decided to make this my all manly movie weekend. On the list so far:

- Terminator III
- Apocalypse Now
- American History X
- Porn (j/k Sue)

Oh and I'm officially declaring it a "no pants, no shirt, showering only when the smell overwhelms, shaving is for pussies" sort of weekend. So avoid the house. No really. And if you call, I may answer the phone with nothing but a series of grunts and burbs. Don't be alarmed.

Fun quick (slightly) dirty news story...

Okay, seeing as how Eric is slacking on his promised daily posts due to that whole marital bliss thing, I couldn't help but share this story on a new "kids toy"

Ah, it's wonderful that, almost 100 years after Freud focused so much on phallic symbols, the ol' boy's still relevant....

Sue and I stayed up last night to watch the Wings lose to the Ducks in OT. Boooooo!

That last goal in the third period was crap. If you push the goalie into the net, that's not a goal.

Wish Us Long Love and Life

Six years ago Sue and I swore eternal love in front of our friends and family in a small church in Hamburg, MI.

Six Years. Six years and I still love her just as much as I did that day.

Part one of Eric and Sue's 6th anniversary celebration!

Day one of our anniversary celebration was very successful and the curse of Paul Van Dyk was lifted! W00t! Even though Eric's plane was an hour late we made it to the club right at the perfect time. We got to our local dance club Bleu about 9:30 pm. I wanted to get there early to see Kenneth Thomas, a Detroit DJ. He used to be one of the resident DJ's at Bleu but now he tours on Oakenfold's Perfecto tour since he is so fucking awesome!! We have seen him a few times at Bleu and he just gets better and better!! We danced hard before Van Dyk even got on!

Paul Van Dyk rocked hard too! I see why he has been the number one DJ! All I can say is wow! He is one of the best DJ's I have seen and my list is growing. After seeing Deep Dish 2 weeks ago I was not sure how it was going to go, but it was great. Kenneth Thomas is 10 times better than Deep Dish and PVD is 2o times better. His music makes you dance hard! All of my muscles hurt today from rocking out so hard!!

It was a great night!!

Thoughts from the Airport

My prediction yesterday is already on course. So far my flight is delayed an hour...

What is about people walking in the airport that makes them completely unable to hear to the loud siren of those courtesy vehicles for handicap people? Just sitting here for an hour, I've seen the vehicle go by three times. Everytime they have had to stop at least once and tell people to please move.

Maybe I just have a better survial instinct, but when I hear a loud siren behind me getting closer, I look around. That's just how I roll.

North Carolina

I'm in North Carolina today and tomorrow for work.

Sue and I are planning on going to Paul Van Dyke tomorrow at Bleu. My flight is scheduled to get back at 7:30pm tomorrrow, but I already know that there is no way it will be on time. Sue and I have a Paul Van Dyke curse that prevents us from ever seeing him. We've been denied three times so far due to schedule or event conflicts, and I have no reason to believe this time will be any different.

So if you see a big curse word on the blog Thursday morning, you'll know why.

Free the Skanks!

CNN: Judge orders Paris Hilton to jail - She's going for 45 days due to driving with a suspended license.

Paris Hilton is the only person on earth who will look LESS trashy in prison garb.

Although...I have to say: I would LOVE to watch that reality show.

P.S. - I know. I owe a Friday blog.

Personal Pet Peeves #1: Stupid Conspirery Theories

Today starts our series of posts on some personal pet peeves of mine. Since I'm such an angry and bitter guy, this series could go on for a LONG time.

Today's Peeve: Stupid Conspiracy Theories about medicine.

I'm always amazed by the number of people to who believe this. Some otherwise really smart people will believe stuff that just boggles my mind. These are people that I've worked with; people I've gone to school with; people I respect.

Today's is: drug companies could cure disease X (cancer, AIDS, the flu, etc), but they make more money treating the disease instead.

That's just stupid. Look, cancer and AIDS haven't been cured because THEY ARE HARD TO CURE. Not some huge conspiracy where all the drug companies got together and decided not to cure some disease.

Let us assume this one is true. Never mind that the companies would have to somehow keep EVERYONE who knew about the result quiet (almost impossible with the sort of people who devote their lives to research in the first place). My biggest problem with this sort of logic is that the person articulating it clearly has no idea how drug patents work in the first place.

Treating you is not profitable in the long run for a drug company anyways because they have a set window of patent protection (10-15 years. Depends on how long the drug was in clinical trials). Moreover, not every drug company makes a drug for every disease. If I'm company A and my competitor company B makes a drug to treat AIDS, you can bet I would love to make a cure for AIDS. Anything that hurts the competition is good for me. AZT alone made GlaxoSmithKline $1.8 billion dollars over it's life. If Merck or Pfizer or whatever could come up with a cure for AIDS, you can bet they would release it in a heart beat. (1) for the money (imagine what you could charge for a cure to AIDS), and (2) just to screw a competitor out of all that revenue.

Target Believes I'm Gay (or at least a metro-sexual)

Last weekend I ran to the local Target to grab some hairspray for Sue before she got ready for work. Since I was going to the store anyways, I figured I might as well grab everything else on the list as well. Makes sense right? I didn't really think anything of the list of items. But when I got to the checkout line, I noticed just how queer I must look purchasing these items together.

Here was my shopping list:

* Diet soda
* Whitening toothpaste
* Heat treatment spray-on hair conditioner
* Micro-derm face scrub.
* Two DIFFERENT types of hairspray.

Yea... even I was embarrassed.

I don't even have to make these titles up

Reuters: Duck penises show "arms race" between sexes

The article is not that interesting, but wow is that a head turning title! That should have been on the front page of every newspaper in America. No way I can just walk past a newspaper stand with THAT on the cover. No way.

And this made me hold my own phallus in sympathy for the man ducks:

What they found surprised them -- corkscrew-shaped oviducts, with plenty of potential dead-ends. "Interestingly, the male phallus is also a spiral, but it twists in the opposite, counterclockwise, direction," said Yale ornithologist Richard Prum in a statement. "So, the twists in the oviduct appear designed to exclude the opposing twists of the male phallus. It's an exquisite anti-lock-and-key system."

All I can say is that Richard Prum is a sick, sick man if he thinks that opposing rotation of genital during the copulation of ANY species is "exquisite".
