One last blast for 2007...this vid was away from YouTube for awhile and I had to share. The most underrated, underappreciated band that ever was...the amazing Enuff Z'Nuff.
Back in business thanks to a government bailout.

Here are somethings you can take to the bank for 2008:
The Cleveland Browns back into the NFL playoffs and knock off the Steelers in Pittsburgh. They put a scare into the New England Patriots the following week but the Patriots prevail despite Tom Brady being injured.
With Brady out of the line up the 18-0 Patriots fall to the Dallas Cowboys in the Super Bowl.
Ohio State is embarrassed again in the National Title game which results in a state wide boycott of sweater vests. Jim Tressel leaves to coach the Cincinnati Bengals.
The Cincinnati Reds continue to play like a Triple A team while the Indians fail to recapture last years magic and miss the playoffs. C.C. Sabathia leaves in free agency.
The Cleveland Cavaliers fail to make the playoffs. LeBron James demands to be traded.
The Columbus Blue Jackets fail to make the Stanley Cup playoffs. People in Columbus are too busy burning sweater vests to notice.
The Hollywood writers strike lasts all year. America forgets about Dr. House, the castaways of Lost and all the other scripted fare thanks to a slate of mind numbing reality shows like Lets Count Britney's Pubes, The Drunkard, Whats in my Stool?, and Who Want's to Win a Midget?
Rocklahoma is such a success, the state of Oklahoma legally changes its name to Rocklahoma.
American Idol crowns its first transsexual winner.
J. J. Abrams Star Trek becomes the top grossing box office film of the year. Zachary Quinto's performance as Spock wins the hearts of the nation. Men and women begin having their ears surgically altered to resemble the Vulcan.
Desperate for programming, ABC launches a puppet version of NYPD Blue.
A bunch of rappers with names like Casio and Commodore 64 get arrested.
After the election is again contested, the next President is decided in a coin flip by Larry King. After losing to Hillary Clinton, Mike Huckabee goes to the Supreme Court demanding a best out of 3.
KFC is rocked by a scandal when its found that its recipe was actually created by a man in Alabama.
Sears and Kmart close their doors forever.
Snorting milk duds becomes the rage among the nations youth.
An opera record becomes the top selling album of the year.
McDonalds test a new sandwich in the south "McSquirrel"
And finally, this blog will be read by more than 5 people a day....
That's all I have for this year kids. Thanks for stopping by. I hope to do better in 2008. I'll ring in the new year by clubbing a hobo with a hammer....beats watching an apple drop.

I'm sick of all the year end wrap up stories that pass as news. You'll find no look back at 2007 here. I believe in looking forward to the New Year. Tomorrow (or maybe Monday...I haven't decided), we'll list my predictions of the events that will happen in 2008. Here's a sneak preview of the celebrities who will die in 2008:
Walter Cronkite (how old is he 90?)
Andy Rooney (again, too many birthdays)
Mike Wallace (ditto)
Bea Arthur (we'll finally learn that she is indeed a man)
Dick Van Dyke (all those pratfalls took years off his life)
Ed McMahon (again, those pesky birthdays)
Frank Gifford (suicide....after realizing he's married to Kathie Lee)
Norm Macdonald (oh wait...thats only his career thats dead)
Ozzy Osbourne (c'mon...its gotta happen soon don't ya think?)
Britney Spears (death by misadventure...one white trash screwup too many)
Kiefer Sutherland (drunk driving)
Heather Mills (Wouldn't Sir Paul be ever so happy?)
Peter Criss (but Eric Singer will replace him in the coffin)
Feel free to submit your dead celeb predictions.
The last issue of Y the Last Man hits comic book shelves on January 30th. If you've never read the Brian K. Vaughn, run, don't walk to your local comic shop or bookstore and pick up the trade paperbacks (come to think of it you could just order them online couldn't you?). You'll be glad ya did. The 60 issue series about the last man in the world may be coming to an end in print, but a film adaptation is in the works.
Hmmm...started the post with a plug and ended it with one.....today's BlastFurniss was brought to you by the Nintendo Wii, Y the Last Man, and the number 69.

Bowl season kicks off tonight. Navy and Utah square off in the Poinsettia Bowl. This of course if the first of 125 bowl games to be played between now and I believe July 4th. My how things have changed from the good old days of college football when every bowl that mattered was on New Years Day. I still don't see why bowl season can't be wrapped up on January 1st. Doesn't seem right that games go on for an additional week. I don't think the world would be a lesser place without the pageantry of the Meineke Car Care bowl.
I'm willing to bet less than 10 percent of Americans will give or receive porn movies for Christmas gifts this year.
I bet more people are getting smut then Kindles this year. I'm a tech guy yet I really have no interest in the latest toy to download books. Isn't it really just as easy to carry a real book around?
Was a bad week for Sci Fi TV fans...first it was the airing of the last eps of Journeyman and now yesterday USA announced the cancellation of the 4400 and the Dead Zone. Anthony Michael Hall shouldn't have to file for unemployment at Christmas. Its just wrong!
No foolin'....REM's next bad record comes out on April Fools Day:http://www.gigwise.com/news/39550/rem-to-release-new-album-next-april?loc=interstitialskip
Robert Plant is gonna be the subject of a new bio:http://www.pastemagazine.com/action/article/6131/news/music/robert_plant_biography_to_be_released
Here are the Top 20 cover tunes of 2007:http://sillypipedreams.blogspot.com/2007/12/12-posts-of-christmas-top-20-covers-of.html

Before he was an opinionated giant douche, Curt Schilling was a big time fan of hair metal:http://www.bostonmagazine.com/blogs/boston/2007/12/18/curt-schilling-rocks-like-a-hurricane/
I always hated Stinger, the disgraced mascot of your Columbus Blue Jackets, but after reading this, he ain't so bad compared to the other mascots of the NHL:http://melroserocks.blogspot.com/2007/12/true-life-i-am-nhl-mascot.html
Meet Darrell Mack...he'll be playing in the Poinsettia Bowl tonight....he's been thru more crap than humans should be allowed...:http://www.signonsandiego.com/sports/college_football/20071218-9999-lz1s18running.html
Somewhere a tv producer is realizing that a reality show on the mascots of the NHL would make fine viewing....

I'd give out a whole host of "best of" awards for the year in music. But the year pretty much sucked. There were reunions I welcomed: Van Halen, Led Zep, Crowded House...Reunions I thought would be cool but weren't:the Police.....and reunions I would have prevented if I could:Genesis.
Here's really all that needs to be said about the year in music...the top selling record belonged to Chris Daughtry..a dude that had the sense NOT to win American Idol. Get this...it didn't even sell three and a half million copies. Those are some pretty sorry sales numbers. Daughtry is considered to be a big hit but 20 years ago, he'd have sold less than Ratt.
So Lynne Spears, Britney's Mom, was due to have a book on parenting released....Well as you might have heard there's been a snafu in those plans...since Britney's little sister, 16 year old Teen Nick star Jamie Lynn is with child. Thats some quality parenting there Lynne. Keep parenting like that and you may top Adolf Hitler's Mom on the "worst Moms ever" list. I just hope the woman isn't capable of having additional children. The world has enough white trash and can't possibly add more head count.

Its 1:45 PM and its currently snowing.
Feel free to continue going about your lives.
Updated...515PM....So riddle me this true believers, why is it that the local tv stations will run crawls or block half the screen with their annoying weather graphics during the week but come the weekend they make no mention of the weather? Here we are knee deep in snow and I've not seen one cut in on a local channel. How will we make it thru the storm if the local news folks don't tell us?
Oh...its still snowing...and it ain't about to stop anytime soon.

If you have the Sundance Channel make sure you check out the new documentary on Tom Petty they are running. Called Running Down a Dream this 4 hour flick is one of the best rock flicks I've ever seen. Sure Tom Petty made a record with Dave Stewart but other than that he's been pretty darn flawless. Plus he's a voice on King of the Hill...which makes him darn cool.
So how 'bout that Mitchell Report? Being a cynic nothing surprised me. Like I posted yesterday prior to the report's release, the names in it are just the tip of the iceberg. A couple dozen combined Reds and Indians players made the list. As a Tribe fan I'm relieved to see that none of the big boppers from their resurgence in 90's made the list. Albert Belle may have juiced his bats but his ass stayed needle free. Roger Clemens can't say that. The Rocket is just as pathetic as Barry Bonds. Both were destined for the Hall of Fame before they decided to cheat. Clemens is getting off a heckuva lot easier than Fat Head did:http://100percentinjuryrate.blogspot.com/
Ya know who comes out smelling like a rose in this? Pete Rose. Suddenly he doesn't seem as big of a cheater.
The other big story today is the weather. Big snowfall in the forecast. I have no place to be this weekend so I don't care. Let it snow. Should make for some fine football viewing come Sunday when the Browns host the Bills. Northeast Ohio could see a foot of snow. I'll be blogging live from the highway this weekend to let you know what the roads are like and to remind you that its snowing outside. I'll be making history this weekend by conducting the first live blog devoted to snow.
The Rock and Roll Hall of Shame f'd up again. I have no problem inducting John Mellencamp and I'll cut some slack to the Dave Clark Five.....I'll even give a pass to the Ventures. But how do you induct Leonard Cohen and not Warren Zevon? I'll take the Beastie Boys but freaking Madonna? What has Madonna ever done for rock music? NOTHING. The Rock Hall is a joke. No one should go thru its doors until Kiss is admitted entry. I'm not kidding. Kiss has had a greater influence than anyone inducted this year (or most other years). Sign the petition to get Kiss into the Rock Hall here:http://www.petitiononline.com/TheQuest/petition.html

This just might be one of the worst programs that ever aired on network tv.
Those idiots in San Francisco who cheered on Barry Bonds pursuit of Hank Aaron's record and didn't care that his head was so big it blocked out the sun...you're to blame. Fans of St. Louis who worshipped Mark Mcguire with a devoted blind faith...you're to blame. For anyone who thought Brady Anderson was just having a great year when he hit 50 homers after never hitting 30 before, you're to blame. MLB, the MLBPA, and the fans of baseball all knew something was going on yet everyone turned a blind eye and just kept forking over the cash. Baseball, as always, had to be dragged kicking and screaming to make the changes necessary to preserving the integrity of the game. For every player to be named in Mitchell's report there are surely 10 more who got away with cheating and their deceit will be lost to history.
Have you seen the new HBO documentary on Don Rickles? Absolutely fascinating viewing. I wish I'd recorded it. Some fantastic stories on everyone from Carson to Benny to Dean Martin and Sinatra. Rickles is one of the last link to an era when stars earned their fame unlike today when people are famous just for being famous.
With the passing of IkeTurner yesterday, O.J. Simpson now inherits the title of America's best known wife beater. Congrats Orenthal...you've earned it!
Ya gotta hand it to the Democrats...they really know how to alienate their base. Looks like after being elected to bring the war in Iraq to an end they are gonna go ahead and vote to give Bush $70 billion more to throw away. Not only is it time to stop fighting the war in Iraq, its time to end the war on drugs. $50 million spent this year and for what? Its just wasted moeny and it makes sense to use the money elsewhere....like on me.
Speaking of wasted money...Forbes has a list of the most overpaid celebrities (thats gonna be a long long list):http://www.forbes.com/2007/12/11/hollywood-kidman-crowe-biz-media-cz_dp_1211overpaidcelebs.html

I believe America is split into two camps: Letterman or Leno. It is impossible to like both. That fat head Tim Russert will tell you its red state vs blue state but he's nothing more than a dry erase board pushing pawn of the establishment. Letterman, not Leno, was the rightful heir to Carson's late night television kingdom. Sure Leno beats Letterman in the ratings but Americans always make bad decisions when it comes to who should lead (for example, the presidency of George W. Bush).
Carson returned to the air during the last writers strike and NBC should return him now.
Since nearly everyone does some kind of year end wrap up or best of list, I feel obligated to follow suit. Before the end of the year look for the BlastFurniss Douchebag List before the end of the year.
Speaking of douchebags, lets talk about Bobby Petrino. This nimrod leaves Louisville to take over the Atlanta Falcons and doesn't even last a whole season before leaving the NFL and heading back to college. Yesterday Petrino bailed on the Falcons to take the head coaching job at Arkansas. Think about that....How bad must your job suck if you decide you'd be happier living in Arkansas?
The gig's up for one of my fave shows of the season....Dan Vasser has gone on his last Journey....man...:http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/hr/content_display/news/e3ib294fb0f03a3a30099b846b5cd3af477

Another day, another snow fall. Not a plow in sight. Cars and semi trucks in the ditch. Pickup on my tail the whole way. Kids get another day off from school. Its amazing how 3 inches of snow can paralyze a town. Did you ever notice when it snows that all the other news in the world is just ignored? They could cure cancer and announce the discovery of a pill that burns fat while it thickens and hardens your member but you'd never hear about it if you're local station has 2 billion school delays to repeat ad nauseum.
Oh and a note to the media...Driving a snow plow doesn't make you a "snow warrior." I shovel the crap and you don't hear me going around asking to be called a "snowgun warrior."

Next time your in Subway if they ask you if you'd like your sub toasted tell them "No thanks, I'm allergic to toast." The look on the sandwich engineer's face is priceless.
Did you catch the end of that Patriots/Ravens game last night? Lots of talk that the game was handed to the Pats and why I'm the first to believe that professional sports are fixed, I don't think that was the case last night. Considering the cheating allegations against the Pats this season, I don't see the NFL looking to help them out. I hate the Patriots and believe Tom Brady should be forced to undergo a vasectomy before he knocks up anymore supermodels. That being said I hate the Ravens more and I'm glad they lost in painful fashion last night.
One day Brett Favre won't be playing football anymore and America's most popular sport will be dominated by prima donna's like Tom Brady, Peyton Manning and Alex Smith..well not, Alex Smith, he sucks (plus thats the first time anyone has mentioned Alex Smith in the same sentence with Brady and Manning). Favre could have played in any era which to me is about the highest accolade you can give an athlete..he's SI's Sportsmen of the Year:http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2007/magazine/specials/sportsman/2007/12/03/sportsman.2007/index.html?eref=T1

For what its worth, I think OSU is gonna get stomped just like they did earlier this year. All LSU has to do is stop Chris Wells and its game over. Then again, I thought they'd lose 3 games thsi season. Heck, I thought going into last season that Jim Tressel might even get fired.
Before I quit bashing the local media, I guess winter is here. I saw the first reporter standing by the interstate letting me know that I might encounter high wind and a snow flurry. The idiot reporter was holding a wind gauge. The measurement? 8mph with gusts up to 16mph! Why those winds are so strong, your hair might move.
