Where black people AND white people buy furniture

In times of beer summits and renewed interest in racial understanding, it’s nice to know that there are places like Red House Furniture Store in High Point, North Carolina. It’s where black people, white people, hixpanics, and ALL people can enjoy their custom built furniture, according to their faux commercial produced by Rhett and Link….

Katy Perry sluts it up on the Today Show. AGAIN.

It’s been almost a year since Katy Perry’s first appearance/performance on the Today Show. She was back on again today, once again trying to show what a unique rebel she is and trying to distance herself from her religious Christian past. She’s had a few singles since I Kissed a Girl came out, and she…

Gidget, the Taco Bell chihuahua, has died

Taco Bell’s chihuahua Gidget, the one made famous by the Yo Quiero Taco Bell commercials, has died at the age of 15. Farewell, Gidget.

Reunited and it feels so good: FAITH NO MORE!

When I was in high school, cruising around in my Buick Skylark blaring my cassette of The Real Thing at full volume through my aftermarket Sanyo stereo, I don’t think my teenage self would have thought that my thirties self would ever be at the point where they’d be watching and listening to a live…

This commercial for GE Locomotives takes my breath away

My wife Kristen and I saw this commercial for GE Locomotive while watching the Today Show on NBC this morning.  It features employees at the GE Locomotive plant in Erie, Pennsylvania performing their version of Berlin’s “Take My Breath Away”. It also features an all too rare appearance of the keytar. On this endless ocean…

Take off your pants, let’s make some romance

Given all the death and despair lately, I think it’s time to get back to songspeak basics. Which is why I’ve decided to tell y’all about an old songstory courtesy of our friend Kevin. You may remember his misheard No Doubt lyrics. Anyway, Kevin is a big classic rock fan, and him and I spent…
