By the way, loyal readers (both of you), I will be gone for majority of next week. I'll be thinking about you while I'm strolling the streets of Vegas! But, alas, I probably will not be posting for the duration. So, see you soon!
Dammit. I could handle the Dixie Chicks, but this just sucks. I've never done anything but defend Eddie Vedder and the boys, but this is way too much . . . I might be done with them . . . I'm gonna have to think about this. Damn.
A – Almost Famous – My favorite movie. I am William Miller . . . but then, who isn’t?
B – Boomtown – The best show on TV. I love me some Law and Order, but Boomtown is so fresh and new, it’s really pretty fantastic. Plus, it has like 4 guys from Band of Brothers in it.
C – Counting Crows – One of the greatest bands ever – even though they’re always trying to kill themselves by showing up on mainstream radio (see: Big Yellow Taxi with (shudder) Vanessa Carlton)
D – The Drudge Report – The best durn place to get news on the web.
E – ESPN.com’s Page2 – Not quite as good since The Sports Guy moved out west to work for Jimmy Kimmel, but it’s still a daily must-read.
F – Futurama – Now on five times a week on the Cartoon Network! Almost as funny as The Simpsons, only funnier.
G – Grilled Stuft Burrito. Definitely in the running for the best fast food product out there. It’s almost like the R&D Department at Taco Bell got together and decided to see how much crap they could cram in one tortilla. Brilliant outcome. Brilliant.
H – Kate Hudson. ‘Nuff said.
I – Indelible Grace – Gorgeous hymns made even gorgeous-er. Kudos to the Christ Community Church folks in Nashville.
J – Janna Barber – Puts up with my crap. What more could a man ask for? Plus, she’s hot.
K - Kentucky Fried Chicken – It’s like drinking the grease straight from the frying pan. What better compliment could I give?
L – Laney Barber – I propped her up on the bed and put the remote control in her hand – the spittin’ image of her daddy, I tell you.
M – Bill Mallonee – My hero, ‘nuff said.
N – New Hope Community Church – My homies. My home.
O – Onion Ring Sauce from Burger King – Makes me feel like I’m sittin’ at a booth at The Outback, instead of just shoveling crappy onion rings into my craw.
P – Rudy Park – My current favorite comic strip. Top on the list of things to check oout when I get to work in the morning.
Q – Quaker Instant Grits – Food of the gods, with globs of butter. My traditional Saturday morning meal. Yum.
R – Real World/Road Rules Battle of the Sexes – I don’t think I can say enough about this show. It has the most evil human ever to appear on prime time TV (Ellen), the single most compelling protagonist (who’s also a bit evil) on prime time TV (Emily), and, the guys are clobbering the girls. Rock.
S – Samuel Atticus Barber – My boy. Maybe the smartest human being on the planet right now.
T - The blogs of old friends. Man, I love to see what’s swirling around in the heads of guys that I grew up with. See: Next to Last Song, Treybo Speaks, Keller, Fatnathan, Capt. Flip Out U – UHF.: Hands down, the best Weird Al Yankovic movie ever made. No contest.
V – Brigadier General Vincent Brooks – Nobody gives a press conference like Brig. Gen. Brooks. He don’t take no guff from nobody.
W – What else? The Whopper. It’s a classic. Still the best fast food burger out there, and when BK does the .99 Whopper, I’m like a little kid again.
X – The X-Men – I’m a comic book nerd!! Always have been. I’ve learned to live with it.
Y – Yesterdayland.com – I’m so glad that somebody other than me remembers my childhood. I seem to have forgotten most of it.
Z – I gotta admit, I’m having trouble with Z. Suggestions? Nominations?
