All Talk: Archer

Do we love Archer?


Frank Longo (A Fistful of Popcorn) and I make a case for the FX animated series, which we believe might be the funniest show currently airing on television.

*shout out to Roods for introducing me to the show.

All Talk: Beisbol

"My favorite players are Roy Holiday and Roy Oswald"

Spring is in the air, and with it comes a lot of unwelcomed precipitation, and a new season of Baseball.

Part 1: John Chidley-Hill from the Canadian Press joins me for an attempt to figure out the Toronto Blue Jays, 2 weeks into the 2011 season.

Part 2: I managed to track down Tug Haines, who is currently on a summer long tour of ballparks across America. We discuss his project Casual Fan, and speak about the mystique of minor league baseball.

Unboxing: Timex Easy Reader

Internet unboxing videos...YAY!

Yeah, I know this watch is a little Style Forum Chic, but its simplicity works with my steez, and I feel I can get some mileage out of it. Also, I paid less than $30, so...

"If it ain't loaded and cocked, it will not shoot"

(Not surprisingly) The courtroom showdown is just as good in the novel, as it was on screen.

LL Cool J - Jingling Baby

Perhaps the greatest "I wish I was there" Hip Hop video of all time.

There's so much to love here, including:

1. Spazzed out dancer guy.
2. Strobe lights, lava lamps, electricity ball thingys.
3. LL's gears are working in this video. The shoes in particular are dope. I think i'll send a screen capture to Nerd Boyfriend.
4. Too cool for school, beatnik dude, holding up the wall.
5. LL's cool grandma. (cute)
6. Fakin' the funk, instrument holding, fly women.
7. Wall Street pencil pushers. (nice suspenders, dudes)
8. Dudes (successfully) hustling their way into the party.
9. Punchbowl carrying and plotting, pretty women.
10. Impromptu, choreographed dance breakdowns. LL's like "hey, what's going on here?" Then somehow knows all of the moves. He's got some steps though.
11. Late 80s/Early 90s Hip Hip Video Muscle Guy (harrrrrrrrrrrrr)
12. Marley Marl (Word to the mother!)
13. Weaved chairs. (I love those things)
14. Old ass record player. (Hustle Guy on the wheel of steel)
15. No music industry lames allowed!

Dedicated to Conor and Crystal. Congrats on your engagement.
