Friday LinkFrogging - 12/3/10

Welcome to December. We're back, and more importantly, back on time. Tis the season to shop early, often and excessively. Lucky for you, our weekly trip around the internet is still free of charge and full of cheer. Last week was Black Friday.  This Friday is Black Swan. Yes, that as another of my patented ham-handed segues. Say hello to this week's cheesecake, Princess Amidala herself, Natalie Portman. Ms. Portman belongs to that subset of cheesecake that I...

I'd like to blame it on the Tryptophan. I'd like to blame it on Black Friday. I'd like to blame it on travel. I'd like to blame it on sickness at home. I could Blame It On Rio, or maybe even the rain. I am very certain, at the very least, the Bossa Nova is somehow involved. Any and all of those are true enough, but they don't make up for the fact that for the first time since its inception, I failed to bring you our loyal reader(s) your weekly dose of links. I'm ...

Friday LinkFrogging - 11/19/10

There is nothing quite like a weekend amongst your own kind to really make you appreciate things like our little corner of the internet here. Stephe and I will be reporting on our adventures in the wilds of the Austin Comic Con soon, but let me just say it was fun.  From aging television stars to costumes to fine tequilas, we had a blast. It made the real world all the more difficult this week. I've salved my soul with Bruce Springsteen's new release, The Promise, and the searc...

Friday LinkFrogging - 11/12/10

Dr. Bruce and Stephe are en route to Austin Comic Con, where the streets will soon run with Geeky effluent of all manner. It's cool though. I'm saving myself for full immersion at the big one (San Diego) and the good doctor left a little prezzie behind, a visual representation of one of the Austin event's fairer participants, Torrie Wilson. Wilson entered this world  in Boise, Idaho, and became a successful female body-builder before moving to L.A. to -- all togthe...

Friday LinkFrogging - 11/5/10

How the hell did it get to be November already? Before you know it we'll be gorging ourselves on turkey. Then it will be Black Friday and that can only lead to Christmas. Wow. But I'm getting ahead of myself. This week we saw a typhoon of voter unhappiness turn control of the US House of Representatives over to the Republicans. We saw the Dallas Cowboys lose...AGAIN! We saw the "final" Saw movie top the box office. We saw the San Francisco Giants win the Wor...

Friday LinkFrogging - 10/29/10

Its almost Halloween.

As Count Floyd would say "Ohhh...spooky kids."

Seriously, is there a better holiday than Halloween.  You get to dress up in a costume and, depending on your predilictions and/or guts, live out your fantasies, all while begging for food.

Think about it, if the guy under the freeway with the cardboard sign rang your doorbell on November 1st, you'd call 9-1-1.  He does it one night before?  He's a really authentic looking (and smelling) hobo.  Here, have some bite size Snickers.

Hell, you might even ask him to pose with your kids for a picture.

But, if there is anything we learned from the Firefly family, its that its not necessarily the scary hobos you have to look out for.

And with that rather ham-fisted segue, please say hello to this week's cheesecake, Sherri Moon Zombie.

Sherri is probably best known for her work as Baby Firefly in House of 1000 Corpses and The Devil's Rejects.  She also starred as the mother of Michael Myers in Rob's two "reimagined" Halloween movies.

She's laid pretty low since Halloween II, but after serving as Rob Zombie's wife and white trash muse for the last decade, we thought she'd be the perfect cheesecake for Halloween this year.

Friday LinkFrogging - 10/22/10

I, your humble editor, have a confession to make.

When I sat down to compile this week's list of links, I had no cheesecake.  That, dear reader(s) is a first.  I usually have the pick made by Monday with at least an inkling of what I'm going to write about.

This week, nothing.

None of the new movies moved me.  We've used a lot of the current TV stars.  I have a "do not use" list that includes Kardashians and Lohans.

I was listening to Prince's LotusFlow3r CD today and one of the tracks reminded me of "Batdance."  This, of course, got me thinking ofVicki Vale herself, Kim Basinger.

My wife mentioned that Bob Guccione died this week.  Looking for links to Bob is a risky internet search kids.  It did, however, remind me that Helen Mirren was in Caligula.

In the end, I decided to go with Anne Hathaway.

Why?

Well, last week was Stephe's birthday.  Stephe has a thing for Ms. Hathaway and I forgot to use her last week as I planned to.

Simple really.

Maybe I overthink these things.

Friday LinkFrogging - 10/15/10

Welcome to the weekend dear reader(s).

I don't know about you, but I could use a drink, or two, or three.

But I digress.

If its a weekend in the fall that means sports.  Lots and lots of sports.

Like football?  You've got NCAA and NFL to choose from.

Baseball?  MLB League Championship play begins this weekend.

MMA?  UFC 120 is on Saturday night.

You know what I forgot about?  High school football.

Okay, that's a brutal segue, I'll admit it.

That's right, the proverbial friday night lights get us to this week's cheesecake.  Say hello to Minka Kelly.

This week Ms. Kelly was named the "sexiest woman alive" by Esquire magazine.  Judging by the photo above, they may be on to something.

Ms. Kelly is perhaps most famous for her role as a cheerleader on Friday Night Lights (see what I did there?) and for being Derek Jeter's main squeeze.  No wonder Jeter doesn't seem to grip quite as hard as A-Rod this time of year.

Ms. Kelly is currently plying her craft as Gaby,the autism counselor, on NBC's Parenthood.

And just in case you forgot who Ms. Kelly took the crown from, let's take a trip to last year in the GonzoGeek Way Back Machine

Friday LinkFrogging - 10/8/10

Welcome back kids.

Another week in the books.  With them came the MLB playoffs.  Roy Halladay threw a no-hitter in the first game of the Phillies' series with the Reds.  That's gotta sting.  The Yankees are doing their annual pummeling of the Twins.  And, the Rangers are 9 innings away from eliminating the (Devil) Rays.

Sorry Matt.

Oh yeah, and Randy Moss got traded from the Patriots to the Vikings.  Let's see if this makes Moss a better receiver and/or Brett Favre a better QB.

It's a mad, mad, mad world kids.

Speaking of madness, say hello to this week's cheesecake, Christina Hendricks.

Ms. Hendricks plays Joan, the real power behind the throne, on AMC's critically acclaimed Mad Men.  She also showed up for a couple of episodes of GonzoGeek favorite, Life, to bedevil Adam Arkin.

While I'm a latecomer to the Mad Men party, I have to say the show is growing on me.  There is something watching the ugliness under the 60s version of the American Dream.  My wife and I are playing catch up thanks to Netflix whilst our trusty DVR collects season 4 for us.

As if that wasn't enough geek cred for Ms. Hendricks, she was recently cast as the voice of Superman's main squeeze, Lois Lane, in an upcoming DC animated movie.

And earlier this week, it was revealed, to nobody's real suprise that Ms. Hendricks' appeal hits all the demographics.  Everyone, it seems, digs a curvy redhead.

Friday LinkFrogging - 10/1/10

Happy Birthday to us!  

Why?     

Simply put, today is the one year anniversary of the debut of LinkFrogging.  What started out as a fun idea, has grown into one of our most looked at features and a highlight of my week.     

The boys and I are always on the lookout for fun, offbeat stories to bring you.  We hope you enjoy reading them as much as we enjoy hunting them down.     

Of course, no discussion of LinkFrogging would be complete without a mention of the cheesecake, our weekly visual aid to help the links go down.     

Earlier this week, our very first cheesecake, Kaley Cuoco, revealed that she had a behind the scenes relationship with co-star Johnny Galecki.  I wonder how John Ritter would have felt about that?     

What does that have to do with anything?  Not much really.  It just goes to prove that, given the right circumstances, you can draw lines between any events.     

On to this week's cheesecake.  Say hello to Lea Michele from Glee.  Ms. Michele plays Rachel Berry, the lead on the America's favorite glee club inspired sing along.     

Glee hit new ratings highs this week with the appearance of guest star, Britney Spears.  Soundtracks have been released.  Tours have been undertaken.  Jane Lynch won an Emmy for her portrayal of evil PE coach, Sue Sylvester.  The show has become a monster hit for Fox, America's home for football and karaoke.     

I've heard the fans of this show refererred to as Gleetards.  That doesn't seem fair.  As we say around here, "everyone is a geek about something."  Yes, I'm looking at you fantasy football guy.  And I'm looking at you Twilight fan.  And I'm looking at you Sex and the City movie goers.      

Fans call themselves Gleeks.  I like this much better.  Its a clever way of commenting on their fandom and keeps with the show's themes.  Of course, they aren't the first Gleeks in pop culture history are they?  Don't remember?  Shame on you.  You'll have to wait until after the links for bonus Gleeky goodness.
