Browsing: Otterz & Endz

Bless me father, for I have slipped… it has been 7 months since I last stabbed FOX in the groin with a dull pencil. So mush [sic] has happened since last that post, I don’t know where to begin. I guess I should start by saying I’m sorry for leaving my post. But the wealth of crap like “Joe Millionaire II,” “The Simple Life” and “My Big Fat Obnoxious Boyfriend” overwhelmed me. I could not bear to watch, even for material! Well, upon reading the entertainment news, I dusted off my lance and decided I had to charging back into…

…for a word from our sponsor? One of the few advantages of a network having it’s own news agency is, when your watching your favorite show, you can be alerted at a moments notice to the goings on around you. Thus, the average couch-potato can be briefed about the end of the world without having to have done his/her homework before hand on why, and see it in real-time. Well nothing as earth shattering as Ragnarøk is going on this week, but it’s just as cold. Yes, it’s blizzard time again, and every so often a news buffoon with a…

Last night I watched Cartoon Network’s [Adult Swim], specifically Space Ghost: Coast-to-Coast. It got me remembering the time I met David Carradine at a convention. George Lowe, the voice of Space Ghost, was also there and I met him as well. But back to Carradine. He was scheduled to arrive at 3pm. I got to the show about quarter after and he wasn’t there yet. But I figured in Manhattan, if you don’t go by train your screwed, so it was ok. Well, I got to see him at about 3:30pm. He signed the $20 photo and waved me off.…

To the punks who stole my garbage can lid, The winter season is upon us. As such, the horrific winds and snows this time of year can be quite brutal. That is why it caused much dismay to see my garbage can unlidded. The sight of naked garbage on the curbside in 20-degree temperature is indeed a miserable one. Begrudgingly, I put on slippers to seek out the vagrant top. However it was to no avail; the top was stolen. And I am sure it was stolen for other lids, equi-sized and weighted, if wind blown, were only feet from…

I’d hate to bite the hand that will potentially feed me, but I have no choice. As we advance in the methods of communication, we lose quality in what is said. I’m sure the more lucid of us knows what I mean, however all those “l33t” folk may be a tad lost. So, let me begin with a little history. For years, letter writing was the only way of communicating over long distances. And during that time, the written word flourished. As Civil War documentaries show, even the most backwards farm boy wrote with such style that it puts current…

There are idiots in the world. I know; I’ve seen them; they’re often on Wheel of Fortune. It was tonight’s edition where it happened that I lost faith in the human race- not that I had found it prior to tonight, but you get the point. The category was “Song/Artist” – meaning that there would be the song title and the artist that made the song famous, i.e. a pop smash known around the world. First I’ll set up the situation, and then follow with the response. Ok? Here we go: “Pat, I’d like to buy a… ‘U’.” … ……

Along with subscribing to everyone’s favorite resolution – getting fit – I have decided to enlighten myself in all matters of things. Right now I am a fountain of useless trivia – good for shouting at game shows, but little else. I need to get more functional. I started this endeavor prior to New Years though. Going back to school (read about it on your own time), reading more and just better noticing the goings on around me included. However, I feel that a formal declaration is in order. It will get my mind in focus. Now I have begun…

Happy New Year to all, first off. At the stroke of midnight on that fateful night each year, many of the sober of us (and those not so) declare our goals for the coming calendar. Some are lofty, vowing monumental changes not even possible with a crate of ambrosia at the ready. Some are more meager and warrant a hearty “so what?” I have vowed the middle ground and decided it’s high time to get back into shape. Or rather, in shape to begin with. I’ve never been in the best of health to start out with. I was a…

Today, for those of you elsewhere than where I am, the East Coast was, or still is rather, ravaged by a “Nor’easter.” Again, for the benefit of those in sunnier places, a nor’easter is this: blizzard conditions accompanied by torrential rains, winds, floods, thunder and lightning and the occasional locusts. They usually begin on a Friday and end somewhere on Monday afternoon (for some reason). Civilization as we know it halts for a weekend; some places up to a fortnight depending on the damage. All in all however, we shrug it off like a nomad would a dust devil. The…

One of my meager goals in life is to one day have someone, anyone, quote me… and quote me correctly with proper citation, etc. It doesn’t have to be taken in context; nothing worth noting ever is taken in context. Nor does it have to shed upon me a positive light; the citation could be used as fodder for all I care (another often seen case when it comes to notable sayings). Either way, it shows I’ve made an impression somehow. It must sound like a terribly egotistical request, but we’ve all had this yearning. Even the most humblest of…
