’Tis the Season: Vol. 2

Posted By on Thu, Dec 10, 2009 at 2:46 PM

On the heels of yesterday's feel-good Muppets X-mas post, I thought I'd pass along a link that exposes a more unseemly — and friggin' hilarious — side of the holiday season, SketchySantas.com.

The website is, well, pretty much exactly what the  picture to the right suggests. It's like the Santa scene from "A Christmas Story," only much, much creepier.

Anyhoo. Here's the link. Enjoy.

’Tis the Season

Posted By on Wed, Dec 9, 2009 at 2:16 PM

Maybe it's the snow today. Or maybe it's the fact that my brother, Tyler, has been unearthing a treasure trove of Christmas TV special nostalgia lately and posting his findings on his Facebook page. Or maybe I'm just mellowing in my old age. But I'll admit it, I'm kinda feeling the holiday spirit this year. It's a Christmas miracle!

Anyway, here's a clip from one of my childhood favorites, "A Muppet Family Christmas" from 1987, featuring Big Bird and my all-time favorite Muppet, The Swedish Chef. Enjoy.

This. Is. Awesome.

CANCELED! Anders Parker @ 1/2 Lounge, Saturday

Posted By on Fri, Dec 4, 2009 at 11:17 AM

This just in: Unfortunately, Anders Parker had to cancel his scheduled show at the cozy confines of the 1/2 Lounge this Saturday. Bummer.

Anyway, here's a vid from a recent performance in North Carolina. No, it's not quite the same as actually seeing him person. But if you really want the sensation of being at the 1/2, pour yourself a dirty martini while lighting nine dollars on fire. (Note to the 1/2: I kid, I kid!)

I Hate CrowfeatheR

Posted By on Thu, Dec 3, 2009 at 12:23 PM

OK, not really. I actually like Mr. FeatheR quite a bit. Will I have fun at his expense from time to time? Indeed I will. But you can say that about almost anyone in this town — I try to poke fun equally across the board. And generally speaking, I try to keep it all in good fun. I mean, I rag on myself as much as anyone else.

However, it seems not everyone shares my tongue-in-cheek approach. In particular, a Mr. "Seth Bailey" who writes for a humor(ish) website called Something Awful. In his most recent missive, he spends a good nine pages describing in explicit, unflinching detail why he loathes CrowfeatheR. Let me tell you, it is brutal stuff — it also borderline slanderous and on par with or beyond the tastelessness of which he accuses CrowfeatheR.

I was going to excerpt some of the choicest bits. But frankly, I just don't have the stomach this morning. It's that rough. So here's a link to the piece. Fair warning: this is not for kids or anyone easily offended by grotesque language.
