The Killers + Dave
Two great tastes that taste great together.
Plus this song is SO AWESOME performed live it will blow off the back of your head.

I was born two years later. :-)

I love this photo. And I miss our yellow 1970s kitchen.
Doctor Who was interrupted by television static, to which an unidentified man appeared, mentioning about WTTW pundit, Chuck Swirsky, saying he is better than him. The man started to moan, scream and laugh. He continued to laugh and utter various random and unrelated phrases, including New Coke's advertising slogan "Catch the Wave" while holding a Pepsi can (Max Headroom was a Coca-Cola spokesperson at the time), then tossing the can down, leaning towards the camera and giving the finger wearing a rubber extension over his middle finger, although it was hard to see the gesture. He then retrieved the Pepsi can, and saying "Your love is fading", before removing the rubber extension, then began humming the theme song to Clutch Cargo* saying "I still see the X", which referred to the final episode of the series, before resuming humming again. He then began to moan painfully, exclaiming about his piles (a reference to a Preparation H commercial), to which an indistinguishable flatulence sound is heard. He then stated that he had "made a giant masterpiece for all the greatest world newspaper nerds" (the WGN call letters used by the Chicago television station as well as its sister radio station are an abbreviation for "World's Greatest Newspaper", in reference to the flagship newspaper of their corporate parent, the Tribune Company's Chicago Tribune). He then held up a glove and said, "My brother is wearing the other one," and he put the glove on, commenting that it was "dirty" and that "it's like you got blood stains on it!" He then threw the glove down in disgust.The picture suddenly cut over to a shot of the man's lower torso. His buttocks were partly exposed, and he was holding the now-removed mask up to the camera (with the rubber extension now placed in the mouth of the mask), howling, "They're coming to get me!" He then said, "Come get me, bitch!" An unidentified accomplice wearing a French maid outfit** then started to spank the man with a flyswatter as he screamed loudly. The transmission then blacked out for a few seconds before resuming to Doctor Who in progress; the hijack lasted for about 90 seconds.
|Dad's old digs. I love that neighborhood and make a point|
to pay my respects whenever I pass through the city.
|I'd still probably wear this t-shirt, though. For kitsch value.|
|Sic her, boy!|
|Damn, those are brave actresses. I hate my profile (nose-acceptance issues).|
|For the love of God, PLEASE kill her off.|
|"Run down to Tramps, have a dance or two...."|
And then there's Shoshanna. Any scene of her losing her shit--either silently or loudly--is comedy gold, and there was plenty of that in season 3. Seriously, Zosia Mamet is hilarious. She was great on Mad Men and she's better on Girls.
|Yeah baby she's got it.|
|Girl, don't look so smug. He sucks.|
Anyway, I'm just relieved that things are looking up for season 4 so I can continue to love and defend Girls with all my previous ardor.
|Excuse me sirs, can I bum a ride?|
|"OMG you guys, I totally have chicken pox! I can't believe it!"|
Neither can anyone with a functioning cerebral cortex, honey.
"The secret to life is to have no fear. When you can let go of what others think about you, how something is going to turn out, or how your past will affect your future, then you are finally living life free.”

|Nicest group of musicians you'd ever want to meet.|
|I love that she's a catwoman!|
|"My secret? |
|"Dammit, I'm just as classy as Beyonce! Or at least Nicki Minaj!"|
