Bill Murray Update
He’s watching Xavier (his son is an assistant coach) get waxed by Gonzaga in the Elite Eight.
Viral Alert – Hi Stranger
Hi Stranger from Kirsten Lepore on Vimeo.
Really didn’t want to post this, but, as you know, I took an oath to let you guys know if something was going viral. An oath is an oath, and this guy is definitely going viral.
I can’t explain this video, and the less said about it the better. I will let the creepy melted candlestick looking thing do the talking. It is burning up the internets, and once you have seen it, you can’t unsee it. So there you go, and I can check it off my list.
Bro Night Movie Night Review – The Accountant
So we started a new tradition on Wednesday nights that we call “Bro Night Movie Night.” For Bro Night Movie Night, we pick out what we think might be a good bro movie, make some guy food like pizza or chili or tacos, and then bust balls and ass around for a couple hours watching said bro flick. All are welcome, assuming you have at least one testicle. Girls are definitely not welcome, because they would probably try to make us watch “the Notebook” or some shit. Yea, well screw that, we want to see movies where guys get shot in the face and stuff gets blown up.
Well, Jesus and Goldie are pissing and moaning because I haven’t blogged about the guy movies we have watched, because apparently I promised to do that at some point. To shut them up, here is my take on The Accountant. Continue reading
John Daly Update
I take the position that if you are going to name a guy an honorary member of your String, then you Gob damn well better be ready to provide some regular updates of his antics. Hearing no objection, I will take John Daly. Someone else can pick up Bill Murray. Continue reading
