Give me back my cards!

This is more of a moviespeak than a songspeak, but whatevs. I’m posting it anyway. It was one of our poker nights last week at the VFW, and it was getting fairly late in the game. I had already been eliminated, but I was watching my wife play. One hand, the guy sitting to my…

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…

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…

The Original Mavericks

I can’t help but notice the songspeak site has had some banner ads for the McCain/Palin campaign lately. I can only imagine this is because we’ve had a few McCain and Palin related posts recently, but rest assured that we here at Songspeak in no way, shape, or form support the McCain/Palin ticket. So it…

The Spirit of Freaks and Geeks

Watching Forgetting Sarah Marshall this past weekend and How I Met Your Mother on Monday got me to thinking about Jason Segal’s start on Freaks and Geeks, and some of the more classic moments from that show. Awhile back, Matt posted about Nick serenading Lindsey with the Styx classic Lady. Well, one of my favorite…

That is true, women DO shop

Bill’s comment in my Ghostbusters post reminded me of a moviespeak that’s been a favorite for some time now. It originates from the Nutty Professor remake starring Eddie Murphy. In the scene, Professor Klump is out on a date at a comedy club. The comedian (played by Dave Chapelle in an early role) comes out…

Morgan Freeman tries to drive to the sto, fails

Who doesn’t like Morgan Freeman? No one, that’s who. I can’t think of another actor so universally beloved. Seriously. So imagine our concern here at Songspeak when we heard that he was in a horrific car accident yesterday. It looks like he’s gonna be ok, which is a miracle considering his car was seen to…

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…

Here lizard lizard

Lately I’ve been seeing tv commercials for an AutoTrader.com featuring Godzilla by Blue Oyster Cult. You know, the ones where “the giant guy is looking at the cars?” as Jamie said to me over an IM to me this morning. I was having a hard time remembering which of the plethora of auto sites (Carfax,…
