Bye Paul

In case you all haven't heard, Paul Newman died late Friday night. He was a great actor and the star of a couple of my favorite movies (as well as a billion others): Cool Hand Luke, and one of my top 5 favorite films of all time, The Hustler. He seemed like a pretty cool guy, not a massive douche, so it's kind of sad. He was old and had cancer, though, so not much of a surprise. In case you haven't noticed, I may be the poorest eulugy writer ever (Update: Roger Ebert does a much better job than I). Anyways, enough writing and more film clips. Here's part of the final scene from The Hustler:

Tell us a story Beck!

Our newest poster has yet to post! It can be a bit difficult to find something to post about the first time, so let me help get you in the swing of things, Becky. Tell me, what's it like being a hairstylist? What goes into a typical day, and how many hot single girls do you work with?

Ok, so I have been without power for over a week now and I have been "sitting alone in my 4 cornered room staring at candles", literally (reference to the dude above). Now , I was wondering if what I was doing last night would be considered crazy. I was commentating for my own solitaire game. Not just one commentator, but two (a color guy, and a play-by-play guy complete with different voices). Is this crazy for me? If not, I am interested to know what you all think would be crazy actions by me. Feel free to comment.
(forgot where I found picture, sorry)

New Poster!

You may have noticed on the sidebar that we have lost one blogger and gained another. Unfortunately there was a philosophical disagreement between Mummy Hitler and I. He wanted to kill me and eat my brains, and I wanted a cheeseburger. Anyways, Mummy Hitler has been removed from this blog and has been replaced by Becky. Feel free to post on anything, Beck! Just please don't talk about cycling... 

On a side note, today is the first day I'm going to work 2nd shift at work, and I was looking forward to sleeping in. So, of course what happens? Today is the day my apartment complex decides to mow the lawn at 8:30 in the morning right outside my window. This is how my life is going lately, people.

He set 'em up, I knock 'em down

DrX: What kind of card does one send to somebody in rehab?
Me: One that can't be smoked?

So, DrX and I have a friend that went into rehab, and we were wondering what would be a good thing to send to him. No packages are allowed, just cards or letters, so sneaking in a hollow cake full of heroin is not a possibility. What does the BFB community think? Does Hallmark make rehab cards?

Lazy Sunday post

This has been the longest weekend of my life, I think. The problem is, I'm not sure what I'm waiting for on Monday. Imagine someone tells you that in a couple days you are either going to win the lottery or be hit in the balls with a crowbar. That's how I'm feeling right now. Who knows, maybe it'll drag out a few days, weeks, or months. I should just say goodbye to a normal night's sleep right now. Anyways, everyone wish me luck, even though you have no idea what I'm talking about. I'm so mysterious!

MONDAY UPDATE: Kick in the balls, ladies and gentleman. Kick in the balls. What else is new?

They're baaaaaaack

The Hoffs kicked off the fall kickball season in winning fashion beating the Bovine Thunder 3-0 to avenge a lost in the spring finale. The Hoffs were lead by Mikey O who scored the winning run as the Hoffs jumped out to a 3-0 after the first inning. combining a dazzling pitching performance by tony AKA "T-bag", and great defense, the Hoffs are set to run the table this season. Stay tuned for mroe updates as the Hoffs battle long-time nemesis Wayne "Mr. Kickball" Romer and Luck of The Irish next week.


It has always fascinated me. What is it really like to be insane, to have a brain that is uncontrollable and unpredictable? I try to imagine it and try to replicate it, but never could possibly understand it. Sometimes I think about getting old and suffering dementia, and it doesn't scare me at all. It's something I want to experience. Does anyone else think this way, or am I alone? 


Can't run to the top of the gurney with a girl named Fannie can you see? Go home and vacate a game of horny toads with a van of girls named Jane and Barry. How long till we have a chance to be what we are and eat what we want and go where we are going to go with a toad and a band of lanced boils. To make sense of anything you must lose a sense of everything. It's late and I can't sleep...

So what else is up?

Mikey has a story about me and the wedding. Tell it Mikey! On a seperate note, yet still related to toes, I figure I should tell the world that I have a red big toe nail on my right foot. Thank you all and good night.

So Kevin... What's up?

I'm glad you asked, Mr. Blog! Not much is going on with me. I had lots of fun at the wedding I went to in Vermont last weekend. Got to see all the old friends and blow off some stress with lots of fun and drinking. So what else is new? I lost a toe. My pinky toe on my left foot to be exact. The lesson I learned? Never wear open toe sandals to a hot dog eating contest for squirrels. It's an honest mistake that I won't be making again.

Here you go smart guy:

A Fish Without a Roof

Well, I'm back from the great Northeast. Unfortunately, phishbone has not made it back home yet. It seems it's rather difficult to fly into Houston right now. Anyways, when he eventually does make it back he has promised to take lots of pictures of the damage from hurricane Ike. That damage evidently includes the roof of his and Kris' house. So, stay tuned!

And now I'm gone

I know I have been neglecting the blog lately, but I have got a lot done at work and in planning my upcoming potential film. Who knew there was so much work in making even a 5 minute movie? It's still definitely fun, though. I may want to do this more often. Anyone want to pay me to do this for a living? Anyways, I'm leaving early tomorrow afternoon to go to a wedding in Vermont. Mikey and phishbone will be there also, so the blog will be even more dead than it has been. When I get back I'll try to make more of an effort to post on a more regular schedule. It looks like I may be starting to work the night leg of a split shift at work, which means less distraction from my coworkers and boredom on my part. That is conducive to more blog posts, but not so much of a happy Kevin. Anyways, everyone have a great week and weekend!

Wanted to share this site.....

It's from T. Boone Pickens.

MMA vs. Boxing

So I've had this debate with a couple of people over the last week, and now I want your response. Which is better, mixed martial arts or boxing?

I think MMA is much more exciting to watch and think boxing is 10 -20 years past its prime. Here are the advantages for MMA
- 3, five-minute rounds. Except for championship matches all fights are 3 rounds. Not 12 long slow rounds like boxing
- Promotes of free tv. But showcasing good young talent on Spike, they have been able to bring name recognition to their fighters from people besides those that fight on PPV
- less dancing. Boxers prance. MMA fighters are always punching, kicking, elbowing, kneeing or working on a submission hold to end a match quickly. Boxers prance for 12 boring rounds.
- White guys. White guys are actually good in MMA. Forrest Griffin, Chuck Liddell, Randy Coutore, Georgre St. Pierre, Matt Hughes are all world champions and white. That never happens in boxing.
- Great fighters actually fight each other. Because the majority of world class fighters are with UFC, you always get the best fighting each other, and there is only 1 recognized world champion as opposed to 3 or 4 in boxing. The last big name fight in boxing was Mayweather - De La Hoya, and they were too old and only fought because they got paid $20 million each.

So since no one else can make a post, at least reply to this one with your thoughts. MMA - 1 Boxing - 0

Sorry for this blog sucking

Things are really getting crazy down here and I'm spending waaaaay too much time at work. The spare time I have now and in the near future is going to be spent on bigger and cooler things, so I need someone to pick up the slack on the blog. I'll keep doing the battle of the beasts animations, but it'd be cool if you other posters could make like 4 or 5 posts a weeks so that the blog doesn't die. Should I look for another blogger, too? What do y'all think?
