Friday LinkFrogging – 4/15/11

Greetings from the Land of ‘Geek kids.

Today would normally be Tax Day, but since Washington, D.C. is closed down for Emancipation Day (?) you’ve got until Monday to “render unto Caesar.”

Until then, why don’t you let us take your mind off all that with some links and cheesecake.

This week’s selection is the very rare double dip.  True, we’ve been featuring two pictures of our weekly selections for some time now, but today, for only the second time ever, we’ll be featuring two different ladies.

Why?

Simple really. 

Scream 4 opens today and as Wes Craven attempts to resurrect his Ghostface slasher franchise, we thought we’d do our part by featuring the ladies most associated with the franchise.

First up, above, say hello to Courtney Cox.

The former Friend and current resident of Cougar Town (make your own joke.  They do.), Ms. Cox plays intrepid reporter Gale Weathers in the series.  She’s been stalked by the Ghostface killer and David Arquette.  She escaped the killer, but got knocked up and cheated on by Arquette.  I don’t think that would have happened if she’d stuck with Bat-Man.  He’s single-minded that way.

Recently, the paparazzi caught her in the nearly obligatory “nip slip” while on vacation.  Never one to miss an opportunity, David Letterman asked about the incident while showing the picture on his show earlier this week.  Good thing he’s a friend of Bat-Man.

That’s Michael Keaton kids.

 

 Up next, we’ve got Neve Campbell.  Ms. Campbell plays Sidney Prescott, the de facto heroine of the Scream movies.  She also spent some time with the Salinger five and practicing her Craft.  Still, perhaps her most famous non-Screamy cinematic moment is likely her pool makeout with former cheesecake/Mrs. Sheen, Denise Richards in Wild Things.

That’s why they make the Google kids.

Cougar Blood?

 Good afternoon kids.  I have a confession to make.  I am on a drug. It’s called Charlie Sheen. It’s not available. If you try it once, you will die. Your face will melt off and your children will weep over your exploded body.

I probably took more than anybody could survive. … I was bangin’ seven-gram rocks and finishing them because that’s how I roll, because I have one speed, one gear. … I’m different. I have a different constitution, I have a different brain, I have a different heart.  I got tiger blood, man.  Dying’s for fools, dying’s for amateurs.

Every day is just filled with just wins. All we do is put wins in the record books. We win so radically in our underwear before our first cup of coffee, it’s scary. People say it’s lonely at the top, but I sure like the view.

That being said,I’m tired of pretending like I’m not special. I’m tired of pretending like I’m not a total bitchin’ rock star from Mars.   I woke up and decided, you know, I’ve been kicked around. I’ve been criticized. I’ve been like the, ‘Ah, shucks’ guy with like this bitchin’ rockstar life. And I’m just finally going to completely embrace it, wrap both arms around it, and love it violently. And defend it violently through violent hatred.

I’m proud of what I’ve created. It was radical. I exposed people to magic. I exposed them to something they’re never otherwise going to see in their boring, normal lives. And I gave that to them. I may forget about them tomorrow, but they’ll live with that memory for the rest of their lives. And that’s a gift, man.

The run I was on made Sinatra, Flynn, Jagger, Richards, all of them just look like you know, droopy eyes armless children.

Which brings us to the subject of cheesecake, and this week’s rather obvious choice.  Say hello to Denise Richards.  She’s an ex-Mrs. Sheen.  In addition, she’s generally considered the worst Bond girl of all time.

Perhaps,  Charlie Sheen can, in his own special way, help us finish out Ms. Richards’ writeup?  Carlos?  “(She) shows up looking the way she does. Look at her. Wow! Everybody’s winning. Boom!”

Then he added, “I tried marriage. I’m 0 for 3 with the marriage thing. So, being a ballplayer — I believe in numbers. I’m not going 0 for 4. I’m not wearing a golden sombrero.”

Play ball Chaz!  Play ball!

A Drug Called Sheen

I don’t understand why people are making such a big deal about Charlie Sheen.  It’s yet another testimony to how our society is just a bunch of overly sensitive, bored, judgmental, self righteous, pansies.  Who cares?  Live and let live…ever heard the term?  I think the guy is pretty darn funny.  He’s definitely nutty, but man is he having a good time.  It’s interesting and funny to me that he really just plays himself on ‘Two and a Half Men’…now that’s reality TV…ha!  It’s all entertainment.  Why is it being taken so seriously?  On air or off the air…they’re celebrities…entertainers…don’t give them more than that.  None of them should be anyone’s role models.  I can kinda understand women hating on this guy, but dudes that do so are pretty hypocritical.  I mean come on…Sheen is living the life of a rock-star…and what dude wouldn’t want that, if not for at least one day?  He becomes “important” because of the constant media coverage and the mindless masses that eat it up.  And then everyone gets in their arm-chair and under the guise of the internet becomes an expert of some sort – judge, doctor, psychiatrist, pharmacist, therapist, etc.  So, to Mr. Sheen, I say party on dude.  Your tales of booze, drugs, hookers, and general kookiness give me a chuckle.  I have no place or reason to judge you and for that matter to care for or about you.

Friday LinkFrogging – 2/25/11

 
Can you feel the excitement kids?
It’s Oscar weekend, that magical weekend where we all tune in to watch Hollywood give itself a massive handjob.  Don’t get me wrong, I like the speculation as much as anyone (see GonzoGeek v. The Oscars).  It just seems a little silly that all these movie folks spend hours handing out statues in categories that none of us really care about.  In truth, the Oscar telecast could be a one-hour special if they really applied themselves.
 
However, if the Oscars serves to get some of our favorite leading ladies on the small screen in our homes it can’t be all bad.
 
Case in point, say hello to this week’s cheesecake, the 2001 Academy Award winner for Best Actress for her work in Monster’s Ball, Halle Berry.  Ms. Berry was the first African-American woman to win the coveted statue.
 
Ms. Berry is one of those inevitable cheesecake selections.  Much like this year’s Best Actress frontrunner, Natalie Portman, I knew we’d get around to her sooner or later.  Oscar Friday seemed like the right day.
 
Ms. Berry’s geek cred is solid.  Besides her Academy Award winning role, she also portrayed X-babe Storm in the first three X-Men movies, Jinx in the James Bond blockbuster Die Another Day, a doomed stripper in The Last Boy Scout and reportedly got paid a cool mil to go topless Sin Swordfish.
 
I think we can all agree not to mention Catwoman can’t we?
 
Enjoy the show.

Friday LinkFrogging – 2/4/11

What a week dear reader(s).

Snowmageddon was predicted and fell well short of the hype.

I fell victim to an especially nasty flu strain that drove me to bed for most of the week.

Oh yeah, and its Super Big Game week.  Really NFL?  We can’t just call it the S***r B**l anymore?  Get over yourself.

Speaking of that which we can actually speak of, say hello to this week’s cheesecake, Jillian Barberie Reynolds.

Ms. Reynolds is the weather girl for the Fox football team and, as such, I’m sure we’ll be seeing a lot of her in the 18 hours of pre-game show this Sunday.  Her and the cast of Glee.

The 10 Greatest Fictional Baseball Players of All Time

Don't think! It can only hurt the ball club!

Its that time of year.

The games that matter are getting fewer and fewer as the Boys of Summer head into the fall.

 Add to that the impending return of HBO’s brilliantly profane Eastbound and Down and me coaching my kids’ baseball team and I’ve got the great American past time on the brain.

I’ll be honest, Kenny Powers of Eastbound and Down was the original inspiration for this list.  As I was looking for a decent Season 2 picture the other day I got to thinking about where Kenny’s place in the Fictional Baseball Hall of Fame.

Then I made a list.

Its how these things work.

PLAY BALL! Continue reading

Friday LinkFrogging – 7/9/10

ENOUGH!

  

ENOUGH!

Just enough.  

I hope Lebron James enjoys Miami. 

I hope Miami enjoys Lebron James. 

But the gratuitous blowjob the national sports media has given and continues to give this story is beyond ridiculous.  I’m looking at you ESPN.  

Professional sports aren’t about loyalty anymore.  Let’s just forget about that.  They are about money, plain and simple.  Lebron made his.  Good for him.  

And speaking of things I’ve had enough of…Lindsey Lohan.  

Lindsey, shut the fuck up and do your time like a good little has been.  

I don’t want to see your “civil disobedience” etched on your fingernails.  I don’t want to hear you tweeted that your sentence is a violation of your eighth amendment rights.  

Most of all, I don’t want to see your Svengali father on TV talking about how the system failed you.  Sorry dad, the ones who failed Blowhan are you and her mother.  You were too busy using your child to print cash and you forgot to raise her with basic sense and morals.  It’s on you dude.  

So for the second week in a row, I had a reason to use Lindsey Lohan for our cheesecake and I passed.  I refused.  I didn’t do it.  I won’t put her drug addled face on the left side of this piece, not even for the possibility of some cheap traffic.

Why?

Because she doesn’t deserve it.

Instead, say hello to Jane Lynch. 

I can hear you all saying “What?”

Seriously.  I can.

I don’t care.

You know why?    I’ll tell you why.

Ms. Lynch is one of the most versatile actresses working on Hollywood these days.  From her early work as part of Christopher Guest’s improv ensemble, to her turn as the boss in The 40 Year Old Virgin, to her recurring role as Charlie Sheen’s psychiatrist on Two and a Half Men, she always delivers.

That’s more than you can say about most of the actresses in Hollywood, Lohan included.

Earlier in the week, Ms. Lynch was nominated for an Emmy for her work on Glee.  She plays Sue Sylvester the cheerleading coach and arch-nemesis of the Glee-ful kids.  I think with a little more Sue Sylvester style tough love and a little less recreational sluttery maybe Lindsey wouldn’t be headed for the big house.

I’m just saying.
