Shock and Awe

My wife decided that we should do some shopping on Black Friday. Since I love buying shit slightly more than I hate crowds, I caved without much hesitation. I picked up a nice 1 GB SD card (for my Wii) dirt cheap and a pair of Steve Maddens for a song, so I was pretty pleased with the days haul. And then I saw something that made the day even better that changed my world forever:

Tis the season!

Yes, ladies and gentleman, this delightful Asian fellow is wearing a t-shirt emblazoned with The Shocker and captioned “Luv & Piss.” It is the bestest t-shirt ever, and I just wanted to share. You're welcome.

New hotness from old friends

Okay, so with Turkey Day looming directly ahead of us, there seems to be a palpable dearth of things to talk about. Still, a few guys are going out of their way to make sure the chatter never completely dies down.

Doctor Popular, for example, has chosen today to launch in earnest. You should check it out, and not just because he’s dropping a new nerdcore track called “Sicko” (featuring MC Inadequate). There’s also a ton of the good Doctor’s previous work available for download and (as he makes explicit mention of being in-studio at present) we can look forward to much more crunchy musical goodness in the future. Doc’s good people. I demand that you love him!

MC Lars (who will, incidentally, be splitting a bill with a certain MC Frontalot on the 18th in NY) has recently launched a podcast in both audio and video form. He also promises to release a new single every month henceforth. Are you excited? I’m excited.

Your favorite bespectacled otaku Karl “Ultraklystron” Olson has recently been featured on the Anime Pulse podcast. His track “So Long Kids” intros the show for two simple reasons:

  1. the subject of said tirade, 4Kids, has recently lost more money than me at the dog track
  2. Karl is the shit
    1. the above point is further evidenced via his own guerilla gig outside of the Bellevue Best Buy

Lastly, Beefy leaked yet another new track on this week’s JALP. This one is all about Jones. For those who may be unacquainted with the Beefy/Jonesey dynamic: think Sir Simon Milligan and his manservant Hecubus. It’s like that, only with more ultimate darkness, and maybe a tad more homoeroticism. Still, I got nothing but love for Beef and Jones, so (on the off chance you don’t’ already listen to their podcast) check it out.

And those are just some of the hardworking nerd-type people that are charging forward while I, personally, rest on my laurels awaiting a holiday feast.

And by laurels I mean ass.

And by holiday feast I mean beer and Stove Top Stuffing.

Of relative unimportance

Here are a few things of which you may be unaware. All are relatively unimportant, but I thought I’d pass ‘em along.

Thing 1: Thanks to putting in an early pre-order at my local Game Crazy, I was able to procure a Wii with minimal difficulty yesterday. I should have it connected to the Inter-tubes soon. If you too have a Wii and would like to exchange friend codes, just holla @ ya boy.

Thing 2: Unfortunately yesterday I also procured a puppy. It’s like a mini- daschund/mini-pincher/fruit bat looking thing. My wife and son insisted that we were in desperate need of such a beast. I remain unsure. The jury is still out concerning how long it will remain with us until I lateral it to my boy Seamonkey and his in-house zoo.

Thing 3: Bill O’Reilly is a crazy cunt. Okay, I’m sure you all knew that, but I just thought I’d pass along that little gem in case you needed further proof.
