Nine Inch Nails! Staples Center! November 8th, 2013!
DVD/Blu-ray coming soon,
…tonight on Esquire TV as he co-hosts the one-hour special Best Bars in America with his buddy Jay Larson.
The concept? Sean and Jay hit up the best bars in Milwaukee, Chicago and San Francisco. I’m so jealous!
Check out a trailer for the special now, then tune in and watch the show tonight.
Getting thirsty just posting this,
She’d settle for a breath mint,
…(give or take a year), my Grandma Shady bought me a hoodie for Christmas that had the word “SHADY” printed across the chest. She was pretty excited about the gift because, “They started making clothes with our name on it! I found it at Kohl’s.”
Of course, the “they” she was referring to was Eminem, but that didn’t matter to her. She still thought it was cool, and so did I.
Since then, I’ve worn that sweatshirt regularly. It became my go-to travel hoodie, which meant that if you ever saw me on a plane in the last decade I was wearing it. Over time, it faded, the screen-printed lettering cracked, tiny holes formed around the seams, and it absorbed its fair share of dropped food and spilled beer.
Still, it always pulled through.
That is, until last week, when the oil in a faulty jar of natural peanut butter dumped down the front of it.
I tried everything. Lestoil. Multiple washes. I even prayed once.
Okay, so I tried almost everything.
In the end, I decided it had had a good run. A piece of it now exists as a rag under our kitchen sink. The rest of it is sitting in the garbage.
So, Grandma, if you’re ready this, first, I’m sorry. I have a terrible potty mouth, and say things here on The Blarg that you’re probably more than ashamed of. But second, if you ever happen to find yourself in Kohl’s again and see another one of our family hoodies for sale, please, pick one up for me.
If we had a backyard I’d bury it,
…has two videos entered in Doritos’ Crash the Super Bowl VIII contest.
Voting for the finalists ends at midnight tonight (EST), so please check out both videos now and give each one a five-star vote.
Jaq’s promised to split the money with me… but not really,
…but I’ve seen Return of the Jedi a few times in my life.
Last night, our friends had it on during a Food Night they were hosting.
In the scene where Luke, Han, and the rest of the gang get snatched up in the Ewoks’ net in the middle of the forrest, I noticed something I had never seen before. I’m not sure what it was supposed to be, but for a brief second, as the net is spinning around, you catch a glimpse of something that looks like… well, to be honest, I’m not sure what it looks like.
My best guess would be that it looks like someone shoved a pair of monster dentures into a white-tailed deer’s asshole, and then Super Glued two googly eyes on either side of the tail.
Here, take a look for yourself:
If that’s not what it is, I have a full head of hair.
Those movies were way more low-budget than I thought,
Back when I was living in Columbus, Ohio my friends and I started a quote wall. Whenever a bit of brilliance (or otherwise) poured out of someone’s mouth, somebody would yell “Quote!” thus nominating it for Quote Board status. The quote then had to be seconded by someone (it almost always was), and then it would be written down to be forever immortalized on the Quote Board.
This is the modern day equivalent of that classic piece of my past.
Justin: ”I always liked that guy. Admiral Ackbar. Oh, and Pussy Lips.”
Kathy: ”Wait… that’s not a real character, is it?”

PS: In her defense, we were talking about Nien Nunb:
That night, I posted this photo of me and our friends’ daughter Anya on Facebook.
Sixteen people liked the photo. Five people commented on it. But not one of them noticed my missing mustache. Apparently, babies trump the absence of facial hair.
It wasn’t until the next day that my dad finally posted this comment: “Very cute, but where is that famous moustache?”
Good catch, Dad! Good catch.
Photos of babies with mustaches would be the most popular thing ever,
