Genesis Playlist - R.Crumb.jpg

Me: iTunes has this feature that creates playlists using your favorite songs.

 

Charlotte: What's it called?

 

Me: Genius.

 

Charlotte: How does it work?

 

Me: You find a song you like then click on the little ATOM BOMB looking deal in the lower right-hand corner of the screen.

 

Charlotte: Then what happens?

 

Me: Your computer blows up.

 

Charlotte: Yeah, right.

 

Me: Nah, it finds songs that are kind of like the one you chose. Then it gets other songs that sound good with it.  Kind of like a musical match-maker.

 

Charlotte: Cool.

 

THE FOLLOWING SUNDAY, SITTING IN A PEW IN THE METHODIST CHURCH

 

Me: I see we'll be singing Oh, for a Thousand Tongues to Sing this morning.

 

Charlotte: Uh huh.

 

Me: I hear it's on the preacher's GENESIS playlist.

The Invention of Lying

By Bob on March 18, 2010 6:00 AM | Read More

The first time I ordered a martini a friend reminded me the cocktail was an "acquired taste".  That's Ricky Gervais in a nutshell.  He's dry. Straight up.  And often intoxicatingly funny. The same is true for his latest movie, The Invention of Lying.

If Geeks Had Rock Bands They'd Look A Lot Like This

These are a bunch of computer guys with way too much time on their hands.  You have to admit however, that they make Tom Hank's piano solo in Big look pretty lame.

Wreck a Nice Beach

Wreck a Nice Beach.jpg

Now that Apple has unveiled this iPhone on steroids called an iPad, we can confirm two very important things:

1)     Apple's naming gurus are masters of the obvious

2)     This is probably something I'll spend money on at some point in my life

 

The problem Boomers, is that this is another example of technology run amok. 

 

Sure, it's well-intentioned in a LET'S MAKE A BOATLOAD OF MONEY way, but I don't want to be the first kid on my block to have one. 

 

 


It's enough to make even Steve Jobs turn his iPad into an iFRISBEE.

I'm sure Henrietta and Merna have their hearts in the right place, but would somebody please tell them they can't sing?  Merna on the other hand, never looked happier.  Guess she was upset over Henrietta getting the solo.

Two pairs of lovers are having the "perfect" Hawaiian vacation until they discover that psychopaths are murdering tourists.  Don't you just hate it when that happens?

After a long day fingerpainting nothing quite says refreshment like a cold, tall Hamm's beer.  It's the beer that made nap time famous (and necessary!).  In the spirit of full disclosure, that's me on the right.

"Blow Your Mind" Baked Chicken Wings

Chicken Wings 600.jpg

Okay guys, the first time I tried making these I kept thinking to myself that there was no way that these baked chicken wings were ever going live up to the classic fried preparation. But boy was I wrong! There is just something about the combination of the soy, honey and chili flakes that, when baked in the oven, creates a sticky and salty-sweet glaze that is just stick-to-your-ribs good. They are so good, in fact, that they'll blow your mind!
