Ice Cream Breakfast and other thoughts (rasslin')

Eating communist ice cream Ron Burgundy style - the scotchy mcscotch or whatever is darned tasty. Ironically I sold my copy of Anchorman on DVD to help purchase my free week of WWE Network- well they declined my paypal when it was less than the 9.99 wanted - so not free and so far it works on my computer with some lag issues and does not work on my 360 which is an issue since I don't want to watch WrestleMania XXX on my laptop. I did enjoy Raw - well I flipped between Family Feud on GSN and Battle of the Network Stars ( Howard Cosell chortling while Artie Johnson was dunked by several CBS studs was odd) - I don't miss CM Punk and I liked the Taker and Lesnar confrontation. Also Roman Reigns and Bray Wyatt had a good old fashioned brawl. I am not overly impressed with the Network offerings so far , I mean ok it is nice to be able to pull up any PPV - but I like the documentaries and weekly shows they offered with their on Demand service more and so far the other offerings are sparse at best. I guess I will call WWE about the 360 issue since I really want to watch the wrestling on the Flatscreen TV and not my laptop.

this cracked me up - folks inked up via photoshop- the fact that Swayze has his catchphrase tatted on him just slays me

SONG OF THE DAY from 2012

I simply love this hypnotic blend of elements - sadly I don't think this song ever got much traction- "Candles"by Jez Dior- check it out.

Betty White was on Raw Monday night - it was a pretty harmless affair and basically a PR stop for her next endeavor. What makes it interesting is that she is also in the movie Lipstick and Dynamite in a scene featuring the Fabulous Moolah from the fifties -

Man Stroke Woman / Grandmaster Flash

This is better than bad lip reading and more fun- lol. Man Stroke Woman is a superb Brit-com skit show.

"I enjoy the music of Grandmaster Flash, I go crazy for his rap and his beats."

The first rap song I heard was "New York , New York" by Grandmaster Flash - I heard it on the jukebox at the Pizza Hut located next to Franklin County High School - I was in between practices for 9th grade football.

 While I love this song - I was blown away by "The Message" like most everybody else. This song still sounds current and I am always tempted to play the whole thing as I rap along. "I can't see the game or the Sugar Ray fight" ( and no the band Sugar Ray was not fighting)....



and even the message with it's message had some comedy to it - but nothing as funny as this flatulent ode to ET

   on the serious side  I love this Melle Mel cut- mixing his fame from "I Feel For You" by Chaka Khan
