Admitting You Hate Annoyingly New Social Networking Software Is The First Step

It's hard to admit that you hate new trendy technology. When Facebook first launched I penned all my friends who had a page an instant pedophile. I assumed to have a twitter account you just needed to be a uber narcissist. I even referred to Netflix as an aid to the handicapped. I'm an ignorant snob, I can admit it. But it's good to know I'm not alone.

My friend Matt today asked if I used Foursquare. I was familiar with it but I figured it was for those who were highly insured and wished to be robbed weekly. I quickly noticed he blogged about his experience and wrapped up his acceptance of new technology is 6 steps. The same 6 I was not aware I was following.

Here is Matt's process:

1) Find out what it does and how
2) Give my general disapproval
3) Mock people who use it mercilessly
4) Forget about it
5) Hear about it again a year or two later
6) Start using it


I think I was at stage 4 with Foursquare with this conversation with him today I just entered stage 5. Stage 6 is TBD.

The Island of Recalled Toys

Here is a lost little video we did a few years ago for Super Deluxe. It was written by Sean Watkins and myself and voiced by us and a few others. I did the unicorn, elf, lawn dart and Santa. It was right after Aquadots were recalled because kids were getting high. Can't kids get high anymore?

Parking In LA

I honestly believe at any second in LA there are never more than 3 available parking spots. This doesn't affect my love for LA, but puts a kink in it. You wouldn't break up with a girl because she didn't have enough chairs in her place, right? You break up with them because they are crazy and don't like your friends. Each week I wake up thinking 'OMG I HAVE TO MOVE MY CAR!!' Except the days when I really need to move it, then I forget. But seeing this picture today made me realize that even in the most desolate areas of the U.S. you need to think outside the box when parking

The Lost 'It's A Wonderful Life" Ending

During the 80's I seldom missed an episode of SNL. Which was odd because that was close to it's darkest decade. Perhaps it was because of gems like this that kept me glued. Dana Carvey will always be one of SNL's shining stars. Merry Christmas on Garth.

10 Of The Greatest/Weirdest Things We’ve Seen With Bacon

With all its greatness it is possible bacon would be the 5th Earthly element. There is nothing on this great planet that a slice of salty pig can’t make better, and that statement goes beyond food. Bacon can be used for many items you might not have thought of. Here are a few we’ve found. Now we’re aware that not all these items are made of REAL bacon but like God created us in his image, these items where created in the God-like image of Bacon.

10. The Bacon Bra – What’s the worst part of eating a big breakfast, finishing off the bacon and being left with hash browns and a few egg fragments to sift through. Imagine if after eating your bacon, there was something just as fun left over?

9. The Bacon Cell Phone Cover – You need to protect your phone, but what if you could surround it in swine goodness? In addition if you talk too long and your phone gets hot… listen for the sizzle and get out some bread!

8. The Bacon Assault Rifle – The only problem with have with this is it might infringe on our right to bear bacon. This we feel is our constitutional right!

7. The Bacon Watch – It’s always time for bacon, nothing helps to promote that than the bacon watch. (Warning – may cause you to eat wrists)

6. The Bacon Wallet – Unless you own a farm you need money to buy bacon, but what do you store your money in? Bacon… then use that money to buy more bacon. It’s the circle of life.

5. The Bacon Nike - Puts a real sizzle in your stride. Incredible concept but was banned due the explained death of hundreds of joggers by stray dogs.

4. The Bacon Suit – You’re a distinguished group, you have style and ease. How do you show it? A suit made entirely of bacon. You’ll impress others and never go hungry (Warning – may cause cannibalism.)

3. Bacon Hitler – Considered to be a far less threatening Hitler yet still hated by the Jews. Mostly due to the pork he wears on his head. All in all he’s a fairly nice guy.

2. The Bacon Suitcase – One of the greatest storage items ever created. You’d be surprised to know this but most people use it to carry more bacon.

1. Bacon Heaven – If Heaven really is like this, can you kill us now with the bacon gun so we can start building our bacon houses and find our heavenly bacon wives?

My "Not-so-Great" Brush with Celebrities


Living in LA it's become the norm to bump into celebrities throughout my days. Once or twice a week I go from seeing A-list actors all the way to "Hey, isn't that the guy who played blank on blank?"

But I forget that it wasn't just Hollywood where I had this volume of brushing with celebs. How can I get my pre-LA Celeb-brushes. Not only are they close to my heart... they are the world's most amazing stories. Here are my top 10 favorites

10. I once gave Michael Keaton directions to good pizza.

9. I held Scott Glenn's motorcycle for him while he adjusted the carb.

8. I served Chuck Woolery chicken.

7. I danced with Brook Shields for charity.

6. I used to work for Bruce Willis as security in his club.

5. I almost hit Clint Eastwood with my car.

4. I sat behind Merlin Olsen on a plane.

3. I got drunk with the Greg Kihn Band.

2. Ate a burrito with John Travolta.

1. I once looked through Demi Moore's panties drawer while dripping wet with my friend Jeff.
