Real World Recap – Seriously, Dunbar is a huge douchebag. Friday, August 31, 2007

Hello kids. You may have noticed a theme in my recaps of this season so far. Yes, I think that Dunbar is a HUGE douchebag. In fact, I feel that he has potential to be one of the all-star turds that the Real World has ever produced. He has all right moves for his selection: (1) he’s cocky; (2) he appears willing to cheat on his girlfriend; and (3) he’s in love with himself and thinks everyone else is in love with him too. Join me after the jump for his latest transgressions against humanity.

Tied to the 90s (Birthday Edition): 30 years, 30 songs–Part II Wednesday, August 29, 2007

Tied to the 90s

Welcome back to “Tied to the 90s“, a not-very complete guide to a decade that was. I’m your host, Yostal, and once more, I’ll be taking you through the pop culture landscape of the 1990s. If you have any suggestions for future columns, please email me at GoinYostal@gmail.com or leave me a comment.

This week’s post continues what is perhaps the most self-indulgent effort I have ever made with Tied to the 90s, which I know is saying something. I warn you again, because, well, it’s what I do. I also want to warn you that after today’s column, I’ll be taking a month off. With school starting back up and college football season, my efforts will be needed elsewhere for a little while. Don’t worry, it’s just a hiatus, and I may still post some random other things as the month goes on. So, with all of that out of the way.

At the end of this month, I will turn 29 years old, meaning that I will have been on this earth for 30 distinct calendar years (OK, technically that happened at the beginning of the year, but just roll with me here.) I was struck by that notion and wanted to look at my favorite songs from each of those 30 years. Now, please note I said “favorite”. Not best, not most significant, not most influential, just my favorites. Why they’re favorites can be as simple as I just really like them to having good memories associated with them to something larger. It doesn’t matter. These are just my favorite songs from each of the last 30 years. Now, as always, I can never make this simple, but I did make the rule that once I had used an artist, I could not use them again. I based “year” off the year that the album from which it came was released, and beyond that, I went to town. There’s going to be some crossover from previous columns as you might expect, but I’m going to write all new material about each song, at least as best I can. I fully expect that you will disagree with many of my choices, but it just gives you something to discuss in the comments. So, with no further ado, part II of 30 Years, 30 Songs.

Good morning boys and girls – I’ll be waiting around at home this morning for the DirecTV man to come bring me a satellite dish and NFL Sunday Ticket. So I’ve got that going for me. But what of Your Morning Rock? What of this week’s new albums?

Holy shit! Was that the corpse of 90’s stalwarts Collective Soul? Looks like it was – and, uh, that may be about as good as it gets this week. Follow the jump to learn the awful truth…

That’s how to rock the suit.
Dear Tuffy,

I have my first big job interview post-college coming up next week. It’s at a big office, so I know I have to dress up some. I’ve got a tie and dress shoes and stuff, but my dad wants me to go out and buy a suit. A tie and nice slacks should be enough, right? Do I really need a suit for a job interview or is my dad being old fashioned?

Overdressed in Oakland

Suspense ended: your father is right. While you were able to get through college with nothing fancier than your Al Davis Collection dress jumpsuit, it’s time to grow up, son. You need a suit anyway; take him up on his offer and become a man. A man owns a suit.

Besides, you’re going to need it again when your friends that are able to dress themselves get married and leave you behind by 25 to continue your perpetual childhood, playing with your Wii all night and drinking Schlitz while plotting the demise of the weekend manager at Circuit City who is totally holding you back because you don’t kick back part of your commission to him.

Avoid all that by purchasing the following: (more…)

This episode opens on the beach, with Parissa putting lotion on Dunbar. She definitely looks like she is really into it, while he makes several comments indicating that he is uncomfortable. So what makes him such a douchebag? Follow me after the jump to find out.

Dog days indeed

God help me, I can’t bring myself to tell you about the excrement the studios have scraped off the bottom of their collective Bruno Maglis for late August release. Instead, please enjoy this look back at movies you should have seen this summer but probably haven’t yet. Do yourself a favor and seek these out instead… (more…)

This week’s post is perhaps the most self-indulgent effort I have ever made with Tied to the 90s, which I know is saying something. I warn you now, because, well, it’s what I do. But this is the first really good idea I have had for a Tied to the 90s since June, so I’m running with it. I also want to warn you that after the completion of this two part special edition, I’ll be taking a month off. With school starting back up and college football season, my efforts will be needed elsewhere for a little while. Don’t worry, it’s just a hiatus, and I may still post some random other things as the month goes on. So, with all of that out of the way.
