According to the YouTube description, this is from a show at Bogart’s in Long Beach, CA on February 16, 1990. That would have put it only a few short months before Dave Grohl joined the band, and about a year-and-a-half before Nevermind hit the shelves in record stores everywhere.

Happy New Year!

People that freak out like this when they get a present make Christmas stupid. Don’t let your little kids do this, let alone your grown up kids.

Reading this article on ESPN.com today about how Raphael Palmeiro still denies he ever took performance-enhancing drugs as a player might raise some eyebrows. Not because he’s doing so in hopes that voters will look past that and still vote him into the Hall of Fame. This won’t be a diatribe about why that is a stupid way of trying to get people to forgive you, but rather an opportunity to direct your attention to the ad on the right side of the screen cap above.

“Shocking Muscle Pictures” reads the head line to the advertisement. It then goes on to say, “Scientists in Cambridge have discovered a revolutionary new muscle builder.”

Kudos to ESPN.com for both talking about a player who will likely never get to see the Hall of Fame for using banned substances while at the same time promoting the next generation of those same substances.

Glad to know there’s still some journalistic integrity left out there.

Who didn’t watch The Pee-Wee Herman Show growing up? It’s an iconic show, and now Paul Ruebens will give the show a second life as a special on HBO.

According to the New York Times:

Pee-wee historians – and you know who you are – may recall that HBO previously broadcast a “Pee-wee Herman Show” special back in 1981, taped at the Roxy Theater in Los Angeles. That show, which Mr. Reubens and his colleagues at the Groundlings comedy theater began performing in 1980, would go on to form the basis of the “Pee-wee Herman Show” currently being presented at the Stephen Sondheim Theater on Broadway. HBO said it would tape its new “Pee-wee” special immediately after the show’s Broadway run ends on Jan. 2; a broadcast date wasn’t announced.

I may not have HBO, but I will be sure to download this once it airs.

I bet this guy used his Bush Tax Cuts extension to buy some extra Christmas lights that were made in China. It surely stimulated the economy in such a way that had zero actual impact.

But hey, his lights sure use up a ton of electricity!
