This Information Cannot Leave This Room, OK? It Would Devastate My Reputation as a Dude.


"Tambourine" or "Tangerine", which one?

Well, happy June to you! I mean, I assume it's happy. I know the odds that it's happy for all 618 of you that read this blog every day are pretty slim... but I hope for most of you, anyway, it's happy... or at least mildly content. And for the 12 to 14 of you that are having a sucky June so far, well, I don't know what to say. Let me know what city you live in and I'll write a letter to your congressman demanding a State Holiday be created in your honor... That oughta cheer you up!

Me? How am I doing? Just peachy. I mean, I got 2 points for yesterday's unidentified movie quote that slipped by... "If you don't run, you can't win" came from Chariot's of Fire. That was a hard one, sorry. I need to be really sly and obscure now if I plan on grabbing any points for myself... Take what you can! And give nothin' back! NEW RULE: Sorry, I need to implement a three-quote-per-day limit. Sorry Bob, but the time-zone advantage you have is just a bit too strong an obstacle for others, I think... I'll try it for this month and see if it ruins the fun, or if it does, indeed, make it more fair. I mean, with a new Rolls Royce as the prize this month, I need to do something to level the playing feild a bit... otherwise I should just ship the keys to Bob now! Although Abbie Flay has issued a Movie Quote Throw-down... but that doesn't mean a dark horse won't come out of the pack and take the crown...

And now, to show you how hip I am, as far as current social events and trendy nonsense, I give you the winners of the latest Britain's Got Talent... it's a pretty cool dance routine, if that sort of thing floats yer boat...



And, yes, I do dance like that around the house... for a price... Here's another one I picked up in a dance hall...

So yesterday, Dave-O posted a picture of the progress he's been making on his biceps, using a ginger ale can for comparison. Here's the pic...


Well, not one to be outdone in the area of Alpha Male Supremacy, I decided I'd one-up him and post a similar one myself...


Boom, baybay! That's what I'm talkin' about! With biceps like those, I'm apt to rip your arm off and beat you silly with it! ROOAARR!!!! I'll stretch out your neck and play you like a banjo, boy-o! Your mother's an astronaut! I was taking shrapnel in Khe Sanh when you were crapping in your hands and rubbin' it in your face! Your mother was a hamster and your father smelt of elderberries! O, you don't mess with me! Freeeedom!!!!

I get that pumped from using my mouse every day...

On a side note, yes, I did drink that freaky-huge triple-shot can of Monster today... that should keep me awake for... say... the next week or so...

Got the Piranha newsletters done today FINALLY! What the heck! Well, sometimes it's easy, other times it's like pulling teeth from a disgruntled clam. Fascinating articles I managed to find include: fun facts about hot dogs (the average hot dog is consumed in 6 bites! Who knew!), Fireworks safety tips (always keep a hose and a bucket of water nearby... um... I guess that's in case you get a sudden urge to wash the car...), Disneyland Opening Day in 1955 (A clusterbleep from start to finish), and a timeline of noteworthy events in the life of Ernest Hemingway (In case you desperately need to know the year he published The Sun Also Rises). It's finding gems like those that keeps me living the high life. (High debt and frustration, that is...)

O, there's more where that came from, trust me! (in other words, thank God for Wikipedia...)

Well, I have squirreled away a treasure chest full of cool videos to post for you in the coming weeks... I think tonight I'll post a killer techno-dance remix of Martin Luther King Jr.s famous I Have A Dream speech... trust me, this is cool... it's been stuck in my head all day...


Well, heck, I thought it was cool... sorry... different strokes for different folks, I guess...

Would you prefer to read the winning entry in a Zombie Haiku Contest? Yeah, I thought that was more your cup o' joe...

You lopped off my arms
Thanks, now I can squeeze through your
Windows at night. Yum.

See what I've been reduced to around here, just to keep you entertained?! You see that!? No wonder my therapy bills are so high! You guys are driving me batty! Well, we'll always have Paris...

Watched Sixteen Candles with the wifey tonight while the kids were at a friends house. Man, that's a funny movie. It must be 20 years since last I saw that movie - and I can still quote most of it! I must've seen that film (and Weird Science) about a thousand times as a kid... I laughed and laughed tonight. How wild. I was quoting it and laughing at the same time... yeah, I'm odd like that. Anyway, it felt good to laugh.

Dave, this conversation can serve no purpose anymore...

I think I'm gonna pull the plug for now. Gotta finish up some files, email them, and get a couple invoices in the mail. I need $!!!!!

Until tomorrow, remember, this is not a movie quote! So don't Google it!

Current Movie: Sunrise, Sixteen Candles
Current Book: Point of Impact, by Stephen Hunter (excellent book)
Current Game: Battlefield 2
Current Favorite Mom: My mom

I was taking shrapnel in Khe Sanh when you were crapping in your hands and rubbin' it in your face - point break,

and if my memory serves me correctly.."Your mother's an astronaut" was from WHITE MEN CAN'T JUMP ?

Bobinho said...

and that "Freedom" yell could be from Braveheart.. but you can never tell with one-word quotes :P

David Wagner said...

15 points for Dave-O! And 10 points for Emperor Bob so far...

Still plenty of quotes to find! Go for it, people!

Abbie said...

Well, we'll always have Paris = Casablanca
Man, dave, I thought that quote from yesterday was going to be a quote, but I couldn't figure it out, lol :) good job oh sneaky one :D
I loved both those videos dave! very cool both of them!!!
I want to say that boom baybay sounds like the Emperors New Groove, but methinks that that was unintentional... oh well :)
oh and....
Dave, this conversation can serve no purpose anymore = the space odessey... such a creepy movie, I didn't like that talking machine

David Wagner said...

10 points for Abbie! woohoo!

Man, that leaves only one for everyone else to scrap over... hmm... guess I'm gonna need to cram even more in the next ones...

David Wagner said...

I forgot to mention: sorry, Abbie, the Boom Baybay was random... I'll check and see if it really is a quote from TENG, then I'll modify the score... but I gotta go to work now! Later people...

Paula Titus said...

Movie quote: "I'm apt to rip your arm off and beat you silly with it!" No idea what movie, does that count?

Loved the King Jr. clip and the bicep pic is totally hilarious, err, I mean impressive.

Avari said...

Take what you can! And give nothin' back! = Pirates of the Caribbean

David Wagner said...

5 points for Shannon! And sorry Paula, that wasn't a quote, lol. There is one more, actually, for anyone intrepid enough to give it a go... otherwise I'll snap it up myself soon!

Paula Titus said...

Darn, I stink.

David Wagner said...

You'll get better with practice... in the mean time, go bathe!

Dave-O said...
