Love me, love me…say that you’ll love me

Do you ever have a song that gets stuck in your head and eats away at your brain for days on end? We’ve all been there. (I happen to currently be there with both of the literal lyrics videos posted earlier this week). The Office brilliantly referenced (and utilized) this phenomenon in the season 3…

Red Lobster!

It’s my favorite time of the year. No, not Halloween. Not even Thanksgiving or Christmas. Autumn is Endless Shrimp season at Red Lobster. It only happens once a year, and only for a limited time. It has become a tradition of sorts for Matt and I. The closest Red Lobster is about 45 minutes/an hour…

MTV finds a way to actually offer music videos again

Kudos to MTV who launched MTVmusic.com recently. The videos-only site allows users to search practically their entire collection of music videos. MTVmusic.com is like a HULU.com for music videos. Given that MTV rarely plays music videos on television anymore, the information superhighway is where it’s at. Back to basics, we like that. You can keep…

Get your Fixx of the Saved By Zero Toyota ads

Toyota has been running an ad campaign to advertise their 0% financing lately which uses a remade spruced-up-for-tv version of Saved By Zero by The Fixx. I’ve been seeing these on television for quite awhile now and the song has been pounded into my skull so much that I walk around singing “Saaaaaaved byyyyyyyyyyy zeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeerooo”…

Chinese Democracy means FREE Dr. Pepper!

Earlier this year, Dr. Pepper promised a free can of soda to everyone in America (except Slash and Buckethead) if the new Guns N Roses album, Chinese Democracy, was actually released in 2008. 15 years after the release of their last album, The Spaghetti Incident (which was basically a covers album), Chinese Democracy will actually…

I fight with Dorothy and Dorothy always wins

When I was young lad, I used to think that the chorus of John Cougar Mellencamp’s Authority Song contained the lyrics, “I fight with Dorothy and Dorothy always wins”. It was one of those things where I was too young to know what authority even was and that he was actually singing “I fight authority,…

It’s the milk chocolate!

Jamie was in Pennsylvania at the NACA Mid-Atlantic Regional Conference in Lancaster, Pennsylvania this past weekend. As someone who used to work in the booths at those NACA shows, I remember the long stretches of time in between the trade show sessions where you’d have to find something to do with yourself. Jamie’s wife and…

The grill is gone, it’s gone away from me

Yesterday I spent a good portion of my Sunday cleaning out the basement of our house and getting it ready for the winter season. It sure was dusty down there (that’s what she said). Anyway, I put a bunch of things out by the curb hoping people would take them, but thinking that certain things…

Mark Wahlberg and Sarah Palin make cameos on SNL

Last week, we posted the Mark Wahlberg Talks To Animals skit from Saturday Night Live, in which Andy Samberg does a dead-on impression of Mark Wahlberg… talking to animals. Mark Wahlberg reacts and threatens to break Andy Samberg’s big beautiful nose in a recent appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live. It’s about 2:01 into the video:…

Where ice cream makes the meal

The latest “I wanna go to Friendly’s” commercials that have been airing lately are really catchy, and though I haven’t been to Friendly’s in a very long time (save for a recent experience in which my friends and I made a horrible horrible mistake), they ALMOST make me want to go. Then again, I’m not…

Top 5 songs inspired by the 2008 political season… so far

In every political season, the candidates inspire recording artists to record tributes (or try to cash in) to their chosen candidates. We at Songspeak picked 5 at random, and labeled them ‘top 5’ totally arbitrarily. 1,000 points for us! Here they are: # 5: “Barack Obama” – Coco Tea Back in March, reggae singer Coco…
