Get Ye To The Faire!

I finally did it! I fulfilled all of my goals for the year! I got my ass to the Ren Faire. I swear, if they ran that thing all year long, I'd pitch a tent and settle in for life. *Sigh* Here are just some of the fun Faire diversions I occupied myself with...

Me & the big Scottish spear/axe thingy of doom!

In the stocks!

With my favorite itinerate gentleman adventurers, the Bold & Stupid Men!

What's So Special About Special K?

WARNING: This is a rant.

Commercials seem to be getting stupider and stupider... even the ones that started with a funny premise are now just tired and ready for extinction. I mean, have you seen all the recent Geico commercials? I hate to say it, but the gecko's wearing on my nerves (for the record, I still find the cavemen sufficiently amusing). I think if Steve Irwin were still around (god bless him), he would have made a much better lizard-stalker than that old British guy.

Ok, one of the most irritating advertisements on tv right now is that damn Special K commercial where a mom finds herself tempted to scarf the remains of a bowl of brownie batter while cooking with her son. Instead of indulging in what is a perfectly normal impulse, this skinny little waif of a Wysteria Lane-wannabe heads for the cupboard and pulls out her secret weapon (no, not that, you gutterbrain) -- a box of Special K, with chocolate pieces inside! She then proceeds to chow down on a nice li'l bowl of the stuff, a smile of smug satisfaction on her finely-featured face. I have several problems with this scenario:

1. In the real world, there ain't no way in hell some measly pile of cornstarch is gonna hold up against a big ol' bowl of fresh brownie batter. I don't care if it's Super-Duper-Extra-Insanely-Rich-Death-By-Chocolate Cornstarch. Still no dice.

2. C'mon, if you're already that skinny, why be so frickin' paranoid about the 1/16 of a pound you might add to your waistline by consuming an ounce of chocolate glop? Geez, live a little. (Note to those of you making these infuriating commercials: use a woman who actually LOOKS like she's trying to watch her weight. Sightly less hypocritical and a little more believable, don'cha think?)

3. As Peter Griffin said, "What's so special about Special K? What ever happened to Regular K?"

Sigh... you know who I really miss? The Capitol One pillagers! The Viking raiders who had to find new jobs because there was nothing left to pillage? That was some funny shit right there... Hey Capitol One, how about an encore! :D

Rammstein And Other Un-Pronounceable German Words

Any American who's heard the German language spoken knows that it sounds funny as hell. And I ain't here to offend -- after all, my family's German (my last name's "Luecke" for cryin' out loud!), so you can bet I've heard my fair share of W├Ârter.

Anywho... Being the Rammstein fan that I am, I couldn't resist sharing this vid of 'misheard lyrics' to my favorite RS song, Speiluhr. Hope you have a sense of humor, 'cause this one may cause belly laughs! Follow der link, volks: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hYcv7xZK5EQ

Oh mein Gotte, it's Rammstein!

Allen = Awesome!

The Photoshop skillz of my friend Allen Pierson are just begging for a spot in this blog: so here they are. Now, this guy is epic 1337 when it comes to photography --I urge you to check out his handiwork -http://www.ringo.com/profile/apierson6.html
But what's particularly thrilling for me is the fact that he's digitally reworked my face two different times, allowing me to live out my crazed fantasies of being some kind of anime-style warrior chick. So without further ado, feast your eyes on the computer-generated masterpiece that is MegN (as seen by Allen Pierson)...

Kickass Forest Avenger MegN

...and Cyborg/Mecha Fighter MegN

Harold & Kumar Do It On The Run

Ok, so I just saw the much-anticipated Harold & Kumar: Escape from Guantanamo Bay... and it was even better than I'd expected. If you haven't seen the original, then run --don't walk-- to your nearest Blockbuster and witness the awesome wonders of the stoner's quest for White Castle. After that, get your ass to the theater and prepare for a silly, crazy, fast-paced ride through the sequence of events that follow! I refuse to spoil anything for you, but I couldn't resist posting this promo poster for the movie... (of course NPH is back!)

'Roldy & Kumar: freakin' out

My Other Home Is The Ren Faire

Seriously now, here where I live, there are many attractions you can blow a month's income on in one weekend: amusement parks, county fairs, shopping complexes the size of small countries; you name it, we got it. But I defy you to find anything else that allows you to walk 500 years into the past -- and have a damn good rowdy time doin' it. This magical realm is known as the Renaissance Faire, and call me a nerd if you want (hey, if Al Yankovic can go there, so can you), but jousting, archery, and steak on a stick are all some pretty convincing reasons not to spend a day and a half navigating a maze of traffic through L.A. just for some stupid postcards of the Hollywood sign.
And then there's the Bold & Stupid Men. It's pretty much worth heading to the Faire just to see these guys. Not only have tights and codpieces never been worn so hilariously, but their daring swordplay ("Spanish Death with chicken?") and rogue-ish tomfoolery will have you in stitches.

The Bold and Stupid Men (Bolt Upright, left; & Gianni Vespa, right), boldy going where no stupid man has gone before
If you want to explore this wonder for yourself, click the link on that little side bar there to your left. As for me, I will be embarking on my yearly trek to the Faire in just a few weeks. Expect pictures... And many tales of fun and frolic upon my return.

To be continued...

A Stoner's Paradise

In honor of today's significance in stoner lore (4-20), I am posting a link to the official trailer for Seth Rogen's upcoming pothead action movie, Pineapple Express. (For the record, I am not a partaker of the ganj; I simply have a deep appreciation for stoner comedy.) As anyone who knows me knows, Mr. Rogen is firmly at the top of my Do List (as in, I'd do that)... for anyone who doesn't know me, watch this trailer to see why.

Behold, the king of half-baked comedy himself
On a related note, another movie I'm saving my pennies for is of course, Harold and Kumar: Escape from Guantanamo Bay (coming out in 5 days, OMG!!1). Please, for the love of White Castle, rally with me and SEE this movie! Together, we can support 2 stoners in their quest for hash (and burgers).

If It Were Easy As Fishin', You Could Be A Musician...

I am McLovin... lovin' BTO, that is. (That's Bachman Turner Overdrive, for those unfamiliar with their awesomeness.) These guys are the ultimate grizzled '70's trucker/rockers, and I want to have their musical lovechild. Who else could pair classic lines like 'it's the work that we avoid / and we're all self-employed' with driving guitar and a kicka$$ groove? No one else, I tell you. And don't even get me started on the growling, husky vocals of bassist/lead singer Fred Turner! Randy could sing too, but BTO just couldn't 'B' without the Turner-man.

So I found this 1975 video clip of the band's timeless big rig anthem, "Roll on Down the Highway". Watch it, and see how ass is kicked. Follow the link, good buddy: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PjaCh5Akg6Q

BTO - back in the good ol' days

And now, for your further viewing pleasure... Here's a hi-freaking-larious vid of the same BTO song, but with a bunch of seriously goofy-cute Asian boys lipsync-ing along. It's some good, clean, rollicking fun that you can't help but tap your feet to (while laughing your stomach straight into seizures) :D
