I’m going back to Philly… Philly… Philly

Ladies Love Cool James… and Dennis, Frank, Sweet Dee, Mac, and of course Charlie. I’m pretty excited for Season 4 of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia. It starts September 18th, 2008 on FX. Some of us here at Songspeak haven’t watched the show much, but others of us are fanatics. Here’s a promo video they’ve…

Round trip ticket to hell

On the way to work this morning, I saw an oval euro sticker on a car that said, “Hell and back”. This reminded me of The Darkness song from a few years ago, One Way Ticket to Hell. I enjoy The Darkness and their retro glam metal style and the singer’s ridiculous voice, but I…

Waiting on John Mayer’s haircut to change

John Mayer is sporting a new haircut these days, apparently satisfied with fulfilling his dream of an “authentic ’80s haircut”. From a May 1, 2008 post on his blog: Today I set off on my newest project; to grow and maintain an authentic ’80s style feathered haircut. It’s something I’ve wanted to do for some…

I know what a prison lover ought to be

Spin Doctors had their 15 minutes of fame back in the early 90’s with their two big hits, Little Miss Can’t Be Wrong and Two Princes. I still hear Two Princes quite often on the radio, and I always think of Matt’s and my alternate lyrics for the chorus. For those who don’t know, Chris…

Journey to the Center of the Pennsylvania

Kristen and I are heading back to her home-town of Palmyra, Pennsylvania this weekend, and Heather sent me an email earlier. Just wanted to wish you well on your trip to PA this weekend. H What’s kind of weird was this coincidence. It’s funny that you sent this because Open Arms is currently playing in…

Three times a Friend-Z

We had a GNO last night. First we embarassed ourselves bowling. Then we ate copious amounts of delicious boneless wings at the Toasted Owl. But we still weren’t quite satisfied. Then someone had the bright idea to get ice cream. So what do a bunch of 30-something guys do when they crave ice cream? They…

Daughtry’s long lost twin?

Matt and I have a friend that, we think, bears an uncanny resemblance to Chris Daughtry. I’ll withhold his name to protect the innocent, but you can be the judge: The funny thing about this is, we tease him about it every now and then, and last year a bunch of us were going to…

Nothing attracts a clown like a clown

Hey, remember when Soul Asylum was popular? Neither do I. But I do remember about 15 years ago Grave Dancers Union came out, containing their first big hit, Black Gold, along with its ridiculous lyrics. Bill and I used to get hung up on the line “nothing attracts a crowd like a crowd”. We wondered…

The Rick Springfield Conundrum

So I heard Jessie’s Girl by Rick Springfield on the radio yesterday, and I was reminded of the long held debate of “Just what DOES he say?” The one line in the chorus can be interpreted as “Where can I find a woman like that” or “Why can’t I find a woman like that”. Both…

Thank you for being a friend

We lost our first Golden Girl yesterday when Estelle Getty passed away at age 84. I used to watch Golden Girls with my grandparents when I was a kid, and it amazes me how much of the humor must have gone over my head at the time. I’m not the only person my age who…

Ooo-ooh, that smell!

On Sunday, my wife Kristen and I purchased a Kenmore air purifier from Sears and brought it home. The air quality was especially bad this past weekend, and we wanted something to aid in our breathing. But as soon as we plugged it in, it smelled like cat fart. Kristen said it best, “It kind…

Knight Rider vs. Street Hawk

Like so many television shows these days that have bastard versions of themselves (think Flip This House vs. Flip That House), there existed two particularly oss shows in the 80s called Knight Rider and Street Hawk. I watched them both. My wife Kristen and her brother used to watch Street Hawk growing up. When this…

Look at this photograph

Over 2 1/2 years ago, at my 30th birthday dinner at the Olive Garden, Matt, Heather, and I lamented about how ridiculous and overplayed the song Photograph by Nickelback was. We made fun of the lyrics, and how we’d hear it at least 3 times a day on the radio. So why post about it…
