Welcome back kids.
Now that most of the Gonzo Compadres have recovered from their varietal trips to SXSW, we're back and getting down to it. Well most of us anyway. John is in Hotlanta this weekend for Wrestlemania. Its his first trip to the big event despite a lifelong obsession with the squared circle.
Sure, the Final Four is this weekend, and we'll be keeping an eye on that, but we're Geeks. We still enjoy the glory of the squared circle too.
Welcome back boys and girls.
All the Geeks are back from Austin and, in my case, points further south. Thanks to Matt for holding down the fort whilst I was in sunny Naples, Florida working as arm candy and dancing with the blue agave (which is quite different than Dancing at the Blue Iguana).
I didn't go to SXSW, but I did manage to squeeze in an MLB Spring Training Game between the Red Sox and the Mets. The baseball gods and StubHub smiled down on me as it was the ann...
Elvis is everywhere
Elvis is everything
Elvis is everybody
Elvis is still the king
Back in 1987, Mojo Nixon put forth the proposition that Elvis is everywhere and everyone.
The King died in 1977, but he's still as much a part of our culture today as he was in 1953.
As the Mark Wills song says -
Well, I was a kid when Elvis died
And my mama cried
My mom was a huge Elvis fan. I was raised on his music, his music, the whole thing. I still have her vinyl copies of ...
Welcome back kids.
Its Friday and time to catch up.
Several of my Gonzo Compadres are heading to Austin, Texas for SXSW in the next few days. I expect we'll be getting lots of cool information from them.
In the meantime, you're stuck with me.
Normally I think of you my loyal reader(s) when I serve up our cheesecake. However, today, its all about me. Why you may or may not ask. Well, I'll tell you.
Last week after posting up our Sheentastic post...
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 differen...
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.
Welcome to Friday kids.
I don't know about you, but this weekend couldn't have come any sooner.
If life is a juggling act, I've been struggling to keep all my balls in the air this week.
I'll pause here whilst you make your own jokes.
Okay, moving on.
Our ongoing cold snap has passed and left us with days in the 70s. Perfect weather to bring out the annual Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue.
I have to honest here. I didn't realize this thing wa...
Welcome to Friday boys and girls.
Last week's run-in with the flu and fever flirting with the high end of the FM dial, left me behind the 8-ball on all fronts this week. I was so far behind that when I sat down at my desk this morning I still didn't have a cheesecake selected. That just doesn't happen kids.
I considered Christina Aguilera, but feared I might forget what I wanted to type.
I have, as previously discussed, a standing "No Lohan" rule.
With the Justin Bi...
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 footbal...
If you build it, they will come. It worked out just fine in 'Field of Dreams' and it seems to be going well as a potential philosophy around here. I only say potential because so far we haven't spent much time philosophizing about what the hell we're up to here at GG HQ. But that's the way it should be. We are you. You are us. If we like it, we're 99% sure you will too. And if you don't, the other 1% does!
See how that works. Action, not words.
In that spirit, please allow me to introduc...
