Hot pizza, check it and see

Last Thursday’s episode of The Office (Sex Ed) hilariously incorporated all of Michael Scott’s exes over the past 6 seasons into one convenient plot about herpes. However, one of my favorite moments from the episode was from the B story, which was when Andy took it upon himself to hold a sex education seminar for…

Barenaked Ladies Are Me…and my friend

Last Friday, I met a friend at Mohegan Sun to see Barenaked Ladies, for which I had complimentary tickets. The show, in a nutshell, was great. I left work promptly at 5pm and made it to Mohegan Sun in an hour and 40 minutes. Not too shabby. My friend arrived shortly thereafter and we went…

Whoa-oa Black Betty, Amberlamps

Thanks to Tosh.0 for bringing my attention to the Epic Beard Man viral video. It’s pretty disturbing, so I won’t embed it here, but you can view it at this link. Basically, a drunk black dude and a racist bearded white idiot exchange words on a transit bus in Oakland, CA, which then escalates into…

Wouldn’t Black Sabbath make more sense?

Thanks to Bill for sending me this link earlier today. It seems that the soundtrack for Iron Man 2 will consist of solely AC/DC songs, and the soundtrack, available April 19, 2010, will be called AC/DC: Iron Man 2. One would think that AC/DC recorded a new track or two for the soundtrack, like Big…

Burn baby burn, it’s a disco towel

The year was 1996, and it was our then-annual Lake George camping trip. I believe this trip took place not long after a group of us had gone to see Kingpin (the Farrelly Brothers movie starring Woody Harrelson, Randy Quaid, and Bill Murray). Disco Inferno by the Trammps was featured in the film, and must…

Way down cellar

Back in high school, I worked part time at Stop and Shop. I worked there in the summers through college, as well. I’ve made a couple friends along the way as a result, and worked with quite a variety of people there over the years. Unfortunately, I don’t remember the name of the woman who…

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…

Taco Bell likes Pina Coladas

There’s a new commercial for Taco Bell, featuring their new Pina Colada Fruitista Freeze, that showcases the very essence of songspeak. The commercial utilizes the 70’s classic Escape (The Pina Colada Song) by Rupert Holmes. The pure genius of this commercial is that it features regular people singing about their day to the tune of…

One Night of Queen: A Songspeak Outing

Flash! Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah! This past Friday night was a night 17 years in the making.  Matt and I attended One Night of Queen at Springfield Symphony Hall in Springfield, Massachusetts. The ticket stub can be seen on the right. Would we play games with you? You see, our relationship blossomed 17 years ago in high school,…

Set an open course full of urgency

About ten years ago, South Park brought the song Come Sail Away by Styx to the forefront with Cartman’s apparent problem of not being able to hear the beginning of the song without finishing it. For years, Matt and I would bring this up and/or sing it randomly. Then one day I noticed Matt sang…

He’s got the Jack

This songspeak took place a couple weeks ago on one of my poker nights. I’m not going to explain the game of no limit texas hold ’em here, but for those familiar with the game, the story will make sense. I wasn’t playing this hand, but was just observing along with everyone else at the…

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…

Tragedy: A metal tribute to the Bee Gees

There is a band trying to “decimate” the Iron Horse Music Hall in Northampton, Massachusetts on Thursday, October 16th. This band is Tragedy, the “all metal” tribute to the Bee Gees. Someone posted a link to Tragedy’s myspace on MassLive’s SoundBoard forum and it looks like they’re AWESOME. They play 80s metal versions of popular…

My Best Friend’s Girl

Last night, Jo and I went to see My Best Friend’s Girl, starring Dane Cook, Kate Hudson, and Jason Biggs. I have no excuse other than we had a babysitter, and it was the only movie we could remotely agree on. It was a bit funnier than we expected, but it was your standard romantic…
