Gome of the Week
Byrd may be old, but he'll wait in line to protest Rice.
I respect that. No kidding.
This Week's Link That's Probably Not That Great
The Psycho Ex-Girlfriend Hoax - I have to admit, I was fooled.
This Week's Movie You've Probably Never Seen
Dog Park (1998)
I gotta tell ya, if I didn't know that this was written and directed by Bruce McCulloch (Kids In The Hall), I would have never seen this movie.
However, I looooove Kathleen Robertson, and when you add the fact that I did know about the McCulloch involvement, you got yourself a deal sealer.
Of course it's a bit of a rom com, but deal with it. Toss in a bit of bitter Garofalo and it roughs out the smooth edges.
The lesson to be learned: Chicks dig guys with dogs.
This Week's Record You're Probably Not Listening To
MC Honky - I Am The Messiah (2003)
Don't let the terrible, terrible, name fool you. This guy's not even a rapper. Thank God.
He is kind of a Beck-biting DJ sort of guy. Not too bad though, having said that.
Good background fun.
