Tags: Jets win a game!, Spawn of Rob and Rosie
After such a great episode last week, we are treated to a bit of a letdown this week with a “setup” episode.
Not much happened tonight except Tony getting more and more into the hole with his gambling, and he and Carmela going through a bit of a meltdown over money.
Oh, and Little Vito now resembles the exact fucking offspring of Rosie O’Donnell and Robert Smith.
(For the non-degenerate gamblers out there, “chasing it” refers to chasing your losses with bigger and bigger bets to get back in the plus column…just FYI).
But stil, we are given some more probable hints with what may be coming in the last few episodes, so come on in if you are looking for something to read before your nap at work today. (more…)
Mix Tape: Wrath Monday, April 30, 2007Posted by Texas Gal in Mix Tape, TexasGal.
7 Deadly Sins
Purpose: an aural recreation of each of the 7 Deadly Sins- second in the series is Wrath. It’s good to be bad!
They say music soothes the savage beast- but sometimes you just need some musical accompaniment to your pissed-off state of mind. When you’re overindulging in the sin of Wrath, let this playlist help fuel your anger. Just don’t hold me responsible from any resulting fireworks.

*Player 2 Has Left the Game*
Shaun: I wouldn’t if this sod didn’t stumble in last night, going on about some bint who got him ramped after the match.
*nudges motionless form on floor*
Motionless form: *snore*
Shaun: As such, it seems as I’ll be penning this piss-head’s weekly ‘net column.
Ed: It writes?
Pete, walking down stairs: About as much as you work, Ed.
Ed: Don’t be a prick.
Pete: What was that?
Ed: I said, your mother’s a spic.
Pete: Fuck-all, I haven’t got the time for this. Unlike present company, I have responsibilities. Make sure that one doesn’t chunder on the rug, is all I ask.
And someone left the front door open, again!
Amazing Race: Military Escorts? Now yer talkin! Monday, April 30, 2007Posted by ladyandrea in aracearoundtheworld, Lady Andrea, reality TV.
Previously, two legs of absolutely no consequence. Two in a row! Where no one got eliminated! The last elimination was April 8th! That is crap, Amazing Producers! So it’s FINALLY time for an elimination leg and I’m hoping for Eric/Danielle elimination because while the “annoying” factor is a wash between them and Mirna/Charla, the “snark” factor is significantly lower with Eric/Danielle.
The Beauty Queens leave the pitstop at 2:15 am and are instructed to fly to Guam and head for Anderson Air Force Base. Charla/Mirna leave at 2:50, Eric/Danielle leave at 3 am and Oswald/Danny leave at 4:30 am. There’s some hey made of the fact that the BQs get the first ferry and the top 3 teams get the first flight to Tokyo, but ultimately all the teams catch the same connection from Tokyo to Guam, so it really doesn’t matter that much. Here are the pre-Guam highlights: (more…)
Your Morning Rock – April 30th, 2007 Monday, April 30, 2007Posted by Jerkwheat in jerkwheat, music, music video, Your Morning Rock.
WTF – it’s May tomorrow? How is that even possible? I feel like an old man talking about how fast the days go by – but seriously, it was just winter like a week ago. Anyhow, let’s get on with Your Morning Rock. Once again, Letterman reminds us that his musical bookers actually have taste. Here is a song from an album I’ve been playing a lot lately

After some time off I have managed to squeeze some time into my busy schedule (also known finally worked up the effort to sit back down on my computer and do this) I am back…. with a slight penchant for vengeance. Even at a new time. Sunday Sunday Sunday!
This week it is time to not support to the use of drugs at all and not to show a video of a song that may have to do with drugs and may have been inspired by the heavy use of said drugs. We don’t condone that hear at DeadOn. We think of the children.

I have recently lost my job. Actually, I didn’t misplace my job so much as it was taken from me forcefully. I know I should be out looking for a new job, but I can’t even get out of bed some days. What can I do to get back into the job hunt?

Don’t fret, Mo. Your predicament is all too common these days, what with the globalization and the immigration and the boogeyman and all that. Therefore, I’ve developed a program that will help you become gainfully employed again without having to leave your home. You will have to leave your bed, though; bedpans are messy and unsanitary.

Saturday Afternoon Standup – Dos-o-pede Saturday, April 28, 2007Posted by Baba Oje in Baba Oje, comedy, I need to stop drinking so much, mitch hedberg, Saturday Afternoon Standup.
So I have Mitch Hedberg on the mind. Sue me. I blame certain other members of the DeadOn crew for continuously bringing him up. I think this makes 3 of the last 4 Saturday Afternoon Standups to be by Mitch, but I’m lazy and drunk, and he is funny, so I make no apologies. Just sit back and enjoy.
[ed: I have no idea what happened to the video. I blame youtube. Its back now, so be happy.]
Survivor: Two Ineffectual Little Indians Left Friday, April 27, 2007Posted by ladyandrea in Lady Andrea, reality TV, survivor.
Previously, it was the greatest episode of Survivor EVER when the Yau Man/Earl alliance got Alex to think he was in trouble, play the Idol and then voted out Edgardo. Outstanding. When they get back from Tribal, Mookie and Alex talk about how badly Dreamz double-crossed them. Stacy and Earl reassure Dreamz that the reason they switched to Edgardo at the last minute was just in case the 4 Horsement were feeding Dreamz misinformation about the location of the Idol. Dreamz was the only one who voted Mookie and he was initially pissed, but he accepts their explanation and seems fine with it. They are 6 strong and can just pick off Alex and Mookie. Stacy comments how those two will “be lucky if they get fed.” Nice, Stacy. Snotty bitch. People having power and having their hubris come back to bite them in the ass is a staple of this show, so she needs to watch herself.
Dreamz tries to convince Alex and Mookie that he didn’t double-cross them, that he got played too. That they all got “outwitted.” Strangely enough, Alex and Mookie don’t fall for it. Imagine that. Dreamz claims he didn’t know what was going on. Well, yeah, that’s probably true most of the time. (more…)

It’s Friday. It’s the afternoon. It’s time for the “Friday Afternoon Contest on Trivia”.
I once made the mistake of letting me coworker (“The Burnout”) do a FACT on a topic of his choosing. Here is that FACT, in its entirety. It is 25 questions long, and, sadly, none of them are on Notorious Academy Award Whore Tom Hanks. We still owe him a beer for doing such a great job….
Having tired of all the smarty-pants quizzes on politics, geography, etc, let’s free our pent up hedonistic impulses this week with a contest on everyone’s favorite cliché: “Sex, Drugs, and Rock n Roll.” Mostly Rock and Drugs, with a bit of tragi(comi)c mortality thrown in:
Video Vixen – “Rock Me Amadeus” Friday, April 27, 2007Posted by Texas Gal in 80s, TexasGal, Video Vixen.
“Rock Me Amadeus” by Falco
from the album Falco 3
This world can use a few more mad, Austrian musical geniuses. We had Mozart, and then we got Falco. Who was the bigger genius? Well only one of them had a Top 10 hit in the U.S. with a song in German about a dead dude, and wore a rainbow-colored wig and rode around on a motorcycle. Hint: it wasn’t the guy whose name starts with an “M” and ends in an “ozart”.

Soooo…everyone else as bored as I was with this episode? Sorry, I forgot that you all come here for the recap instead of actually watching the show. I envy all of you – this week’s episode was 30 minutes of my life that I will never get back. Follow me after the jump for all of the excruciatingly boring details.
The Playlist – Alt-Country Friday, April 27, 2007Posted by Jerkwheat in alt-country, jerkwheat, music, The Playlist.
Welcome back for another edition of The Playlist. Much like last week’s “O Canada”, there will be plenty of room for debate on here. The phrase “alt-country” alone is enough to stir up debate and I’ve got a few on here that I know someone is going to call out. That’s the fun of making these lists. And just like “O Canada”, I’ve got a feeling there will be at least one more volume of “Alt-Country” coming in the future to address the bands I omitted this time. So, lets get to this week’s 15 songs shall we? To the jump!
My Turf War-Was Very Enjoyable Friday, April 27, 2007Posted by Shakarean Hutchinson in SA, Scrubs, TV.

There is some kind of curse on me doing these Scrubs recaps. I’m not home, someone goes into the hospital, I miss part of the show, etc. Something always fucking happen. And when nothing happens I don’t particularly like the show. What the fuck. Same thing happened tonight as I saw the beginning without any interruption, but only caught bits and pieces of the second half of the show. With that said, I enjoyed last night’s Scrubs very much. It had quite of few laugh out loud moments, and I liked the cliff hanger at the end.
Oh, and I have a major girl crush on Keri Russell. Big time. Even with the short hair. And she was very good in this episode. Yea! Okay, let’s get this thing going. (more…)
New Movie Releases – Weekend of 4/27/07 Friday, April 27, 2007Posted by Tuffy in movies, new movie releases, tuffy.
Tags: but wait - there's more!
Pitch: This weekend’s movies suck so badly that half weren’t screened for critics and the other half shouldn’t have been. Maybe if we combine forces, we can get one decent movie.
Synopsis: Steve Austin and Nathan Jones are paranormal cops stranded on an island trying to find the killers of Nic Cage’s career and beat them in a breakdancing competition. Julianne Moore and Justin Chatwin play the old priest and the young priest. Jamie Kennedy plays Satan’s incompetent brother, Sigerson. Based on a Philip K. Dick piece of slightly used toilet paper.
Target Market: OCDs that have to go to the movies at 7:45 every Friday night and sit in the same seat and apply the popcorn salt with the same shaker and same number of shakes.
Why You Should See This Movie: It’s a great value! You can see four unbearable films at once! Unlimited soda for everyone!…
Oh, skip it.

Cheap Bastard Thursday – Free MP3 Downloads of David Ryan Harris Thursday, April 26, 2007Posted by athleticsupporter in athleticsupporter, music.
The RIAA is cracking down on people these days for grabbing copyrighted songs. That doesn’t mean you need to go pony up money to get your groove on, it just means you have to be more creative in where you look. In Cheap Bastard Thursday (Free MP3 Downloads), I’ll point you to some awesome music that can be had legally, without paying a penny to anybody**.
Today we are have David Ryan Harris. Most people will be unfamiliar with his solo work which is based on some really excellent singing with a soulful touch and top notch guitar playing. However, you might recognize him as a touring guitarist that plays with John Mayer. This recording was made on January 7th, 2007 at Smith’s Olde Bar in Atlanta Georgia and features DRH on solo acoustic.

American Idol: WHAT. THE. FUCK. Thursday, April 26, 2007Posted by ladyandrea in American Idol, Lady Andrea, reality TV, the balls.
Call me naive, but the way American Idol went down last night was a complete surprise to me and I am PISSED that they made me think my beautiful Jordin was going home. Also? TWO HOURS OF TOTAL RANDOMNESS. It was like, I don’t know, a Sally Struthers’ commercial meets Blue Velvet meets the Sonny & Cher variety hour. And I will not be recapping the entire thing here, sorry kids. Here are the noteworthy things:
>>Ellen is hosting over in the Disney Concert hall and they kick things off with Earth, Wind and Fire and that kind of rules. However, I did not know at this point that Idol just blew their wad by opening with EWF.
>>There is a ton of footage of Africa and New Orleans and Kentucky and whatnot and it is all very depressing. All the judges cry, Ryan cries, I cry a little and I donate money on http://www.americanidol.com. That is all I have to say about the serious stuff.
