Rescue Me

Rescue Me is far and way my Summertime TV fave....Denis Leary and cast put out one quality product. Sure he's lost my friends and family members than even Andy Sipowicz but Rescue Me is the very definition of must see TV. Last night's ep did not disappoint. I suspected the Chief wasn't going to go gently into that good night and for once in my life I was right. Sadly its preempted next week due to the July 4th holiday...I'm sure Fx will be running something starring Will Smith or Hugh Jackman instead.

Side note...Heard Denis Leary's song Asshole on the way into work this morning....I should add that to the list of songs to be played at my funeral.

NBA draft is tonight...who cares? I like Greg Oden but he looks older than Robert Parrish ever did. Biggest question of the draft is will the Minnesota Timberwolves deal Kevin Garnett...and if so will anyone really care? This is the first draft since the ban of selecting high school kids went into effect. The Big O doesn't think its such a good idea:http://www.nytimes.com/2007/06/28/opinion/28robertson.html?_r=1&oref=slogin
I read last week USC just recruited an 8th grader....only in America.

Why does the story of tainted Chinese toothpaste always make me crack up? Tainted toothpaste? Sounds like somthing the Joker would have come up with in the Batman comics.

Its hard to tell who is losing more frequently lately....The NY Yankess or Dubya....Breaking News...Immigration bill? DENIED!:http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/19475868/

The almighty Bruce Campbell returns to TV today in USA's Burn Notice. Reviews are mixed but my DVR is set for it:http://www.aintitcool.com/node/33172

I too have shed tears over Hannah Montana...everytime my daughter makes me watch it....or listen to it in the car:http://www.latimes.com/entertainment/news/celebrity/la-et-sceniac27jun27,0,5304197.story?coll=la-home-entertainment

Take a peek at Stephen Colbert's near comic book...thanks to Entertainment Weekly:http://www.ew.com/ew/article/0,,20043846,00.html

Tell me what ya want what ya really really want? God, not this...http://www.usatoday.com/life/music/news/2007-06-27-spice_N.htm

I'm working on a new website...rocknrollgenocide.com. Its kinda like the VH1 rock honors but instead of honoring 5 bands every year, we'll select 5 bands and have their music wiped off the face of the earth. Nominees...Journey, Chicago, 38 Special, REO, Styx, and anyone you wanna nominate.

RIP NFL Europa....NFL Europe....World League of American Football or whatever it was you called yourself this week. The NFL will officially announce tomorrow its pulling the plug on its developmental experiment tomorrow. So long Hamburg Sea Hags...we hardly know ya.

More crap as it happens....

Kudos to the new website: I would like to nominate Debbie Gibson, MC Hammer, The Backstreet Boys, New Kids On the Block, and Kenny G. Alternates would include Billy Ray Cyrus, David Lee Roth's entire solo career, The Spice Girls
(Especially the Spice Girls), and Michael Bolton (ass clown).

All good choices. I also submit the surviving members of the Grateful Dead, Jimmy Buffet and Steve Miller.

I second the Jimmy Buffet nod. Please also consider Great White and the Sammy Hagar-era of Van Halen.

Good selections OMOM. I couldn't agree more in regard to Great White tho I fear they will answer to a higher power for their sins. I mean what fading band burns up their fan base? Please also consider Paul Rogers era Queen, Yngwie Malmsteen, Warrant and the Axl only Guns N Roses.
