You're hungry for a delicious snack that will get your energy up, but may also bring about the end of the world.  You must choose the form of the sugary Destructor.  So you try to think of the most harmless thing. Something you loved from your childhood. Something that could never ever possibly destroy us.  What just pops into your head?

It's the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man.

And now, you can finally purchase Stay Puft marshmallows.  They're "gourmet."  They're officially licensed.  And they're caffeinated, which means that you'll be able to stay wide awake through the coming of Gozer the Gozerian (or a screening of Ghostbusters 2).

I just ordered a box for myself.  I'll let you know how they taste in 7-10 business days.

Next time I'm visiting my brother in Portland, OR, I'm bringing my bike.  And I'm aiming for that blue shell.



Note that all the bicyclists avoid the banana.  Awesome!

If you've been to a strip club... ever... you've heard at least 3 of these.  Spike's web site came up with the list below. I must say that the hip-hop stuff probably won't hold up over time, but most of the rock tracks on the list will last forever.

9. Nelly - Hot in Herre
8. Kelis - Milkshake
7. AC/DC - You Shook Me All Night Long
6. Guess Who (or Lenny Kravitz) - American Woman
5. 50 Cent - Candy Shop
4. Motley Crue - Girls Girls Girls

Songs I'd add to the list:
  • Buckcherry - Crazy Bitch
  • Nickelback - Something In Your Mouth
  • Van Halen - Drop Dead Legs
  • Van Halen - Poundcake
  • Cavo - Champagne

What other songs do you think are strip club classics?

The web site Comics Alliance has been putting together "Great Comics That Never Happened," some of the best comic books that I would definitely have read if they ever really existed.  Make sure you check out Batman & Motorhead, the lesbian wedding of Mary Jane Parker and Black Cat, and my favorite, The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen featuring Doc Brown, B.A.Baracus, and MacGyver.  Scope them all out for yourself right here.

If you were a fan of Mystery Science Theater 3000 (MST3K) during its decade-plus run on Comedy Central and Sci-Fi, you need to know what the cast is up to now.

First, there's Cinematic Titanic.  You've got Joel Hodgson (Joel), Frank Conniff (TV's Frank), Trace Beaulieu (Crow/Dr. Forrester), Mary Jo Pehl (Pearl Forrester), and J. Elvis Weinstein (Dr. Ernhardt) from MST3K, riffing on even more lost B-movies, complete with shadowrama silhouettes.  I saw them live in Milwaukee earlier this year, and despite the lack of 'bots and the Satellite of Love, the group is still in top form.

And then there's Rifftrax.  Michael J. Nelson (Mike), Kevin Murphy (Tom Servo), and Bill Corbett (Crow 2.0) are still riffing, but more often over the top of new classics like the Star Wars series, Titanic, Transformers, Avatar, the Lord of the Rings series, and more.  Instead of licensing the rights to the entire film, the Rifftrax crew just lets you download their riffing in an MP3 that you can sync up to your own DVD to laugh your ass off.

And tomorrow night, Thursday, August 19th, Rifftrax is taking their show live on the road to 500 theaters across the country - all at the same time - to riff on the 1938 anti-marijuana classic, Reefer Madness.  Check out details and buy your tickets here.  It'll be showing at Regal Cinemas in Appleton and also at Bay Park Cinemas in Green Bay.  You know you'll see me there.
