Someone has way too much time on their hands.

Ed Helms to join The Office

From Entertainment Weekly:

Steve Carell may have left The Daily Show behind, but he'll have another reminder of it on the set of The Office this season: Correspondent Ed Helms (pictured) is slated to appear in at least 10 episodes of the NBC comedy as a Dunder Mifflin employee. Says Office executive producer Greg Daniels of Helms: "He's very funny, yet it's not in a way that you go, 'Oh, yeah, that's Sitcom Character 7.'"

This is a must read for book clubs!

I just finished reading London Times reporter Chris Ayres account of witnessing the 911 attacks in New York and his role as an embedded journalist with the US Marines during the first stages of the Iraq War. Oddly enough the book his both horrific and hilarious at the same time. The writer is our age and his views and references will undoubtedly strike a chord with you. Plus, the fact that he is scared shitless the whole time might resonate too.

No compromise?

The Sonics were asking WAY TOO MUCH to help something that was already broke when they bought it (i.e. the Key Arena, the Sonics lease etc.) All I can say is if you can't fix it yourself and you can't buck up more than 20-30 million then you shouldn't own an NBA team. Besides that, why should I really care anyway if I can't afford to go to the games? My season tickets to see the M's cost me $38 a game, my Seahawk tickets were $44, and I can't see a Sonic game in a decent seat for under $100 (I know because my brother in-law took me to a bunch of games and I had sticker shock everytime I sat down in each different location).

My family had season tickets in the 80's and I loved watching the Sonics in the 90's, but Schultz and his inept ownership group have brought nothing to the table. The only decent thing they have done on their own is trade Payton for Allen, otherwise it's been a bunch of crappy basketball and a bunch of bizarre drafts. Currently, we need a defensive stopper and we drafted an immature seven footer even though we have two already.
This ownership group was terrible from the beginnng to the end. How many playoffs series have we won with this group in charge anyway? I was actually hoping they would sell to someone who could move them to Bellevue where there are more people who can afford to go to the games.

On the flip side, why couldn't any sort of compromise be reached? Paul Allen kicked in 100 million for his stadium. Could the CEO of Starbucks not come close to that? Or maybe at least offer a compromise? What about the city and their negotiation tactics, all or nothing? Sorry we can't help? Two idiots on both sides of the table and don't even try to tell me this group WANTS to keep the team in Seattle.

Art Thiel has a similar take today in the PI.

A Republican to give serious consideration to in 2008

I would have said the same thing about McCain until he started kissing GOP and Religious Right butt over the past year and a half.

From EW Today...

Arrested Development: The Movie?

There's still money in that banana stand: Maebe says there'll be an Arrested Development movie. Maybe.

Alia Shawkat (who played the ambiguously-monikered, super-jaded, movie-producing, cousin-kissing teen on the short-lived but much-beloved and altogether over-hyphenated Fox comedy) has the following to say about a possible AD leap to the big screen: "Mitch actually recently told us that there is a good possibility for a movie, and that he's talking to Ron Howard about it."

Well, they did end the show with a movie pitch to series producer/narrator Ron Howard. If they pulled it off, wouldn't that, like, totally be the metaness to end all metanesses? No, that would be an Arrested Development movie about the Arrested Development movie, told from the perspective of the guy who's programming Arrested Development: The Movie: The Videogame. ("Play as GOB. Play as Michael. Play as The Loose Seal.")

In any case, my head will happily explode, and when it does, I promise to YouTube it for your enjoyment.

More Hassle for Your Hoff!!!

Rocky VI trailer!!!

I've seen Rocky I-IV at least a dozen times each, if not more. Rocky V was shite, but I'll still see this one anyway. Maybe it's just the music. Maybe I want to see a sexy 60-yeal-old in the boxing rigng. Either way, can't wait til December.

More $$$ for more charities from PJ

Adam Corolla hangs up on Ann Coulter

Yes, this is the same Ann Coulter who believes 911 widows are enjoying the fact that their husbands passed away. Funny clip, take a listen.

Vegas Baby, Yeah!!!

Here are some of the highlights from our Vegas trip.

The Pearl Jam show at the MGM rocked. It was mainly a greatest hits set sprinkled with new songs plus Rats and Garden thrown in too. Plus Eddie did some great Elvis poses during Little Sister. They closed with an intense and long version of Porch.

We did TEN poses durin

Colfax spilled beer on Rachelle.

Hanging out with Amy was fun.
We watched Desio win seven grand playing Black Jack.
Two lifeguards made out in front of us.
Eddie Vedder dedicated a song to Rachelle.
The MGM bar after the show was a Pearl Jam celebration with dancing and sing-a-longs.
