college football's pre-season coaches' poll was just released. u-m is ranked #10, which is a little too high if you ask me. the spartys are featured at #18.posted by uncle grambo |
smoking crack with the homeless
so i'm listening to "Trudi News" this morning on the way into work. trudi reported that an actor from the TV show Ed was caught smoking crack with some homeless guy in Brooklyn. and even though i didn't watch a single episode of Ed during Season 2, i still have an affinity for the characters (esp. Carol Vescey). so, in an attempt to figure out what happened, i typed in "smoking crack with the homeless" on google and i stumbled across this story! how come i never heard that the dad from Alf was CAUGHT ON VIDEOTAPE SMOKING CRACK AND HAVING GAY SEX?!?! yes, i said Willy Tanner! you know, the mild-mannered guy who always got frustrated with the hilarious cat-eating antics of Alf and the nosy yet neigborly presence of the Ochmoneks but always ended the show calm, patient and fatherly ...what the F? where was i when this story broke? but, more importantly, what is willy tanner doing smoking crack? he's like 65 years old and a total nerd! look at him! anyhoo, further research on the whole "actor from Ed" subject reveals that, allegedly, it's all a big misunderstanding. and it wasn't Ed, Carol Vescey, Phil or even Warren Cheswick...it was Dr. Mike. WILLY TANNER SMOKES CRACK (allegedly)!posted by uncle grambo |

THANK YOU! last night, at 9:34pm EST, whatevs.org racked up its 3,000th visit. i know, i know, this doesn't sound like very much. but if you take a look at the chart above, you'll see that whatevs.org has been kicking ass and taking names over the last month and some change, with over half of the site's all-time traffic coming through during july. so i just wanted to take this very brief opportunity to thank all of the loyal FOWs out there, and please let me know if there is anything else you would like to see make it to the site. i'm currently working on a mini-glossary to help explain "what the hell i'm talking about" (i get this email from various FOWs almost daily)...hopefully that will make it up by this wknd. i'm also planning on some bigger and better things down the road, but i won't let those proverbial cats out of their proverbial bags until the right time. obvs. so, once again, thank you for your patronage and continued visits. i have promised piping hot content for your sexy bod, and i'm glad to see that you're diggin' on it.posted by uncle grambo |

what obscure band are you? i'm Hefner. "I am Hefner. I'm a hopeless romantic, but my relationships don't tend to turn out. it might be because i whine a lot. but despite that, people find me quite likeable". pretty much hits the nail on the head, but i don't think that i whine...that much.posted by uncle grambo |
a case of perfect timing...

i taught the little grizz well. today's detroit news features his review of The Rising. mine will follow later this week. and it is also important to note that there is a small cup of Haterade being brewed out there. if you turned on the TV yesterday, it was wall-to-wall Bruce. beginning with the Today Show at 7am and concluding with Nightline/Up Close at 12:30am, springsteen was all over the airwaves. being one of the bigger Springsteen fans out there, i welcome the coverage and the (rare) opportunity to hear his thoughts and listen to stories about what inspires him to create. however, some others think that the album should speak for itself and that the media blitz is a little self-aggrandizing. today's USA Today features an article on this very subject. but in the spirit of Biggie Smalls, i say "don't hate the player, hate the game." what's wrong with publicizing and letting people know how proud you are about the super fly album you just put on wax? i say it's all good in the hood. yo.posted by uncle grambo |

your loyal webmaster is always looking for comments and feedback on the posts that appear on whatevs.org. in response to my take late last week on the disappointing announcement of John McCain as SNL guest host, loyal FOW (and former-roomie) Christopher "Friggedy" Frey sent me an intelligent retort. re-printed below is the verbatim email...

everything i ever learned, i learned from MTV
on my ever-so-slight lunch break (i've got 15 minutes between meetings and i'm devouring a Powerbar), i chose to read the LA Times. obvs. here are some great articles i spent lunch reading...
*here's a mini-preview/behind-the-scenes look at Steven Soderbergh's Full Frontal
*if you dig on sports, today's edition reveals that Darius Miles is being traded for Andre Miller
*last but not lizz, there's also a good article called Bared Feelings, Not Midriffs, which is about the new wave of anti-Britney chicks like Michelle Branch, Avril Lavigne and Vanessa Carlton. like with the electroclash article i posted yesterday, i feel like i've read this before, but it is a good piece (printed on a Tuesday, no less!) on this emerging movement that is all the rage with the kids these days...posted by uncle grambo |

the end is near. sure, people have been talking about it for years. first, there was the whole Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards fiasco a few years back. the new album hit #1 but faded faster than the industry expectations. the movie didn't go over as well as any would've hoped (though it still ended up being a moneymaker for the studio). there was the break-up. now it seems like her career is careening wildly downhill like a big-ass truck without brakes or one of those secret ninja off-ramps truckers use to slow down on a hill with a steep grade. it's obvs. of course i'm talking about Miss Britney Spears...
the clock is ticking. recently, you've seen her all dolled-up and looking like a two-bit sellout in those annoying Britney 4Wheelers ads. when you have a multi-million dollar Pepsi contract and you agree to shell for Sketcher rollerskates, you can bet that one of her agents/confidants/handlers must've told her that "time is running short; you'd better cash a LOT of checks as quickly as possible." then you had her cameo in Goldmember, where mike myers (somewhat lovingly) savaged her, making Britney the joke of the scene, NOT austin powers. the other celebs who cameo'd were part of the joke, not the target of the joke. now you've got this, a story whose headline reads briefly: Spears Abruptly Walks Off Mexico Stage, Ending Tour. this just days after encountering major buzz negativo by flippin the bird to the mexican press upon her arrival in that nation's capital. britney's fame lasted a good four or five years, which is way more than tiffany or debbie even dreamed of. in this case, howevs, let's just hope that the playboy photo-shoot doesn't take 12 years to happen.posted by uncle grambo |

happy monday to each and every FOW walking the planet Earth. this was a low-key weekend, yet it still managed to be tigs. look for twenty word reviews of orange county, lovely and amazing, austin powers in goldmember, reign of fire, and tadpole sometime early this afternoon. but before that, here is an article from yesterday's LA Times detailing the new electro-clash scene, populated by artists such as Peaches, Adult, Felix da Housecat and Fischerspooner. it is a good write-up (and the first I've seen in a newspaper) on the best musical trend to emerge in years, although i felt like i read the exact same article in GQ last month. so all of you GQ subscribers out there can skip this link...who am i kidding? no one subscribes to GQ anymore! in fact, i'm pretty sure that i'm the last man in America who still receives Esquire on a monthly basis...(note to the editors of Esquire: if you're going to feature Hilary "Shitmouth" Swank on any future covers, please cancel my subscription. merci beaucoup)posted by uncle grambo |
