Hell on Earth

Dante's Inferno. Ishtar. Call it what you want but the heat wave has turned the outdoors into hell on earth. I pity the fool who doesn't have central air. I don't know if global warming or Barry Bonds are to blame for these ungodly high temps but it needs to cool down and soon. Not just to be more comfortable, but I'm tired of seeing fat people in short shorts and tank tops.

Here's a cooling thought...Christmas will be here before you know it. Its never too early to start thinking about the birthday of Jebus and what better way to celebrate than a new Xmas cd featuring Dokken, LA Guns, and Twisted Sister:http://www.roadrunnerrecords.com/blabbermouth.net/news.aspx?mode=Article&newsitemID=78327

When its this hot, theres no better place to be then surrounded by 20,000 people at an outdoor concert venue enjoying Ozzfest:http://dispatch.com/dispatch/content/life/stories/2007/08/09/ozzfest.html

If you ever thought "gee, TV is great but I wish it were...I dunno...more gay!" Then someone agrees with you:http://news.yahoo.com/s/nm/20070808/tv_nm/gays_dc_1;_ylt=Ajf2h3_HUIfT4TJWES8_PgIE1vAI

Remember when ESPN was a good thing? Then one day Keith Olbermann was gone and there was Kenny Mayne. That was the moment where ESPN jumped the shark. The network that brought us Austrailian rules football now brings us Who's Now perhaps the dumbest idea for an ongoing feature in the history of "journalism." Further proof that ESPN ain't what it used to be...first the ESPN cellphone service crashed and burned and now its beddy bye time for its broadband service too:http://deadspin.com/sports/notag/so-long-espn-360-whatever-you-were-287337.php

I think the Onion article on Bonds' homerun record could not be worded any more appropriately or accurately. They really knocked that one out of the park...please excuse the lame-ass pun.

Hey, I put my name on that howmanyofme website - I have discovered that there are exactly ZERO people in this country with my name - what does that mean? Am I a figment of my own imagination? To be, or not to be. I guess I "don't be". Let the existential meltdown commence...

Now thats funny. Did you use your real name or just TFO? Cuz I'm betting thats pretty rare. There are 1150 Furniss's out there. Be afraid...be very afraid. We are few but we are mighty!

I guess I would be an army of one, if I even existed. Maybe I have supernatural/spirit-world kinds of powers at my disposal. I don't know...I'm still trying to determine if I'm really sitting here.

Read the article on Ozzfest. Other than Ozzy, I don't think I recognized any of those bands. The last Ozzfest I went to was in '97 - the year of the riot. And what a riot it was.

Ozzy Osbourne should retire from the road. Sharon is gonna flog that old man out there tho until he dies.
