Clerks

About 20 years ago, someone thought it would be a great idea to capitalize on the cult success of Clerks the movie and adapt it to the small screen.  And it might have worked except for two things...

1) Kevin Smith wasn't involved and...
2) Disney was.

So as you can imagine this didn't turn out well.  (No Jay & Silent Bob?  C'mon.)  Thankfully, Disney didn't go ahead with the idea... especially after they saw the pilot below.  Even a young Jim Breuer and Keri Russell can't save this trainwreck.  Enjoy.

A punk documentary!  It's educational!

Do you like to give money for worthwhile causes?  Sure you do.  So why not help out a number of area musicians and pony up for this documentary they're working on about the active 80s NE Wisconsin punk scene?  Just click on the picture for videos and other information on this very cool project.  You have a job now so there's no excuse.

Motley Crue's Vince Neil and musician Gunnar Nelson are swapping wives!

(note: Does it still count when Vince Neil's "wife" is actually just his girlfriend?)

Kenny Chesney in Green Bay

Thousands attended the Kenny Chesney show at Lambeau Saturday night and as you would expect, it was a drunken playground with numerous police calls throughout the evening.  Thank goodness Doug Schneider of the Green Bay Press Gazette was diligently relaying the entertaining scanner chatter on his Twitter feed.  Doug does this for the Packer home games each year and was all over Saturday night's s**t show.  Here's a collection of some of the better ones here.

And if you're not following Doug on Twitter, you should be.  Click here.

BTW... 22 arrested.  Alcohol may have been was a factor in all of them.

At my Catholic grade school in Marshfield, I used to lift up the girls' skirts at recess.  This kid's technique is much more advanced that mine ever was.  Fine work, lad.

If you're a wrestling fan, by now you've heard that Dusty Rhodes passed away yesterday at the age of 69.  Dusty had some big matches over the years (easily found on YouTube) but he also known for his skilled mic work.  The guy could cut a promo and you can watch him in action here.

This is old but at a Brewers/Braves game a few years ago, these two young lovers from Atlanta (who kinda look related) grew tiresome of the action and started some of their own.




Get a room.  Sheesh.
