Bring it on down to Basketville

This morning on the way to work, I passed a billboard that I’ve probably passed countless times before. For some reason, I never really noticed it like I did today. It was for Basketville in Putney, Vermont. And all I could think of is that right out front, Justin Timberlake is dressed up in a…

I am on hold, with the State Parks Department…

I forgot to post this last week, but on NBC on Thursday night, Parks and Recreation illustrated a great example of songspeak. While much of songspeak consists of using song lyrics in everyday situations, a lot of it comes from making up lyrics on the fly to songs, usually involving the situation you’re currently in….

Everyone knows it’s Braaa-aaad

There’s a new commercial for 7-Up featuring Brad Garrett that I’ve been seeing lately. In it, Brad gleefully songspeaks The Association hit Windy, with his own goofy lyrics. I don’t have much to say about it, except that it’s yet another example of songspeak in advertising. And I’ll be damned if that garbage truck doesn’t…

It’s a nice day for an Office wedding

Last night marked the biggest television wedding since Monica and Chandler or Luke and Laura when Jim and Pam got married on The Office. The episode actually surpassed my expectations, and the entire cast got some really funny moments. The episode was chock-full of great moments; Dwight hooking up with Pam’s best friend, Andy tearing…

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…

MST3K, Joe Estevez, and paper

I used to love Mystery Science Theater 3000 back in the day. It’s been off the air for years, but oddly enough, it’s come up for me twice this week. The first time was on Monday, when I was playing poker at the VFW. For some godforsaken reason, they had Two and a Half Men…

After 15 years, ER finally flatlines

Last night, NBC aired the series finale of ER. The past few years, ER has slipped a few slots in my list of favorite shows, but it has always remained in the top 5. I was a sophomore at WPI when the show first premiered, 10pm on Thursday nights (where it remained for its entire…

The origin of the KFC Colonel revealed

In case you haven’t noticed, we’re big fans of fast food here at songspeak. The recent opening of a Taco Bell/KFC hybrid in my hometown has been one of the greatest moments of my life. So imagine my surprise when I saw that there is a movie coming out chronicling the origins of the KFC…

There’s no bad ideas when you’re brainstormin’

My three year old’s new television obsession is Imagination Movers on Playhouse Disney. And while it can be painful for parents to tolerate their preschoolers’ entertainment preferences, I must say, the Imagination Movers are awesome. They started out as a children’s band and quickly grew in popularity, getting their own TV show on the Disney…

Are you havin’ a laugh? It’s Chris Martin on Extras

Having recently finished watching Ricky Gervais make a fool of himself in Extras, I was havin’ a laugh recalling the cameo appearance by Chris Martin of Coldplay. Gwenyth’s making drumsticks! It’s especially awesome to see Ricky Gervais doing musical things, since I had heard that he was a former pop musicain himself. Thanks to the…
