King Hippo

Oh well, brackets are dead. Now, we can excise our souls of filthy lucre, and focus on the purity of hate.

14S Buffalo vs. 3S Miami (6:50, TNT)

Behold, the bland competence of Jim Larranaga and the prettay…prettay good Miami Hurricanes. If you can look past the fact that NC State whipped their asses. I wouldn’t count on Buffalo circling the wagons on them tonight, though.

12E Chattanooga vs. 5E Indiana (7:10, CBS)

This one screams “upset city” to me, so if you are gambling-inclined, bet the mortgage/food/insulin money on the Hoosiers.

16(T)E FGCU vs. 1E U*NC (7:20, TBS)

SO MANY INITIALS! As a red-blooded American (whose alma mater has never been a 1 seed in the expanded format era, if ever), I always root like mad for the 16 seed in their Quixotic quest to topple the windmillian #1. I assure you I have never done so harder than I will tonight. AMERICA NEEDS YOU, valiant soldiers of the Credit Union squadron.

14MW Fresno State vs. 3MW Utah (7:27, truTV)

Oh, hai there, Team Secular Big Love, hoops edition. Are you any good? Not really, huh? At least you’re honest. Still probably enough to get to the Sweet Sixteen, and almost certainly enough to get past this ragtag bunch.

11(T)S Wichita State vs. 6S Arizona (9:20, TNT)

Wichita State advanced by 20 in the play-in game, and looked like shit doing so. That’s quite difficult to pull off. Nobody fucking knows what to expect out of Sean Miller’s bunch, last seen getting their pants pulled down around their ankles by a gaggle of Ducks (and no, that better not be the last Oregon rape joke we read on DFO tonight).

13E Stony Brook vs. 4E Kentucky (9:40, CBS)

Caffeinate for this one, it could be interesting. Kentucky is an up and down team, and the Seawolves have a REALLY good power forward who could make things mighty uncomfortable for Coach Cal’s bunch.

9E Providence vs. 8E Southern Cal (9:50, TBS)

MOAR offensive basketball, huzzah! The Men of Troy are led by Coach Andy, the man who led the aforementioned Credit Union side when they had their “Dunk City” S16 run. Beet juice is apparently their secret now, so look for frequent “coach, I need to take a shit” timeouts. Also, Providence is better than people think. Dangerous team if they make it through.

11MW Gonzaga vs. 6MW Seton Hall (9:57, truTV)

Ah, Gonzaga. Finally, having fallen out of favour with the committee, and having burned through all of their ancient Cinderella fan goodwill…watch the fuckwads stop fucking around and start winning games now that nobody’s picking them. There IS some talent there. And the Hall may just have shot their wad taking out Nova for the conference crown.

I have a big day tomorrow, as it’s the ultrasound where we could/should find out the gender of our baby. Here’s hoping it’s a boy.

theeWeeBabySeamus

I just yawned for so long that I drooled on my keyboard.
OK, admittedly alcohol might have play a partial role as well….but that doesn’t change the overall point.
I need zzzzzz’s before basketball resumes in only (checks clock)….holy shit…REALLY???
Sleep tight folks.

So my dick dad by blind luck accidentally fixed his computer today. I knew the problem, how to fix it but not the source because I didn’t have time to look at it and the limited time I did have, I had to explain every troubleshooting step I took and what I learned off it and he always is the asshole looking over my shoulder (like most) or that wants to be at the keyboard to “learn” . It is gonna be even more of a pain in the ass to fix his computer next time because he without knowing what he did got it right. (deleted in safe mode, that I got him to send an email, a second antivirus software that was conflicting with the services the OS uses [he blames me for installing it, I have used the same antivirus for 10ish years now and delete any other if I see it])

As someone who knows next to nothing about computers, but is the go-to fix it guy for computers for both my mom and mother-in-law, I feel your pain. They’re like toddlers. You could feed the toddler and they’d be done eating in minutes, but, they think they can feed themselves and insist as such, resulting in you sitting in a chair trying to get any semblance of food in their mouth for at least an hour. as they put the damn food anywhere but where it’s supposed to go.

I’m craving some Ouzo right now, so, here’s some Rembetiko from the movie Rembetiko, which was really good.

Still 100% working off the IASIP soundtrack, but I should let WBS I do like another Bon Jovi song

Bon Jovi – Blaze of Glory

Marc Trestmans Windowless Van
Marc Trestmans Windowless Van

Sorry Sill, not meant to be a reply

theeWeeBabySeamus

And yet it is me who is confused.

Marc Trestmans Windowless Van
Marc Trestmans Windowless Van

I said I didn’t like Bon Jovi other than one song before, I added a second song I did like.

theeWeeBabySeamus

But….wasn’t that the one I posted when you said you liked it?
Let me scroll back momentarily……..
Yes.

laserguru

You should stop at I didn’t like Bon Jovi.

We’re understanding.

theeWeeBabySeamus

WTF do you know? You’re all high and shit.

WCS

I gotta side with yeah right on this one.

theeWeeBabySeamus

GODAMMIT!!!!!
Don’t piss me off. Because if you do….there’s really not much I can do about it.
(fuck)

Marc Trestmans Windowless Van
Marc Trestmans Windowless Van

I can’t find it, but I assume I am in the wrong and take full blame.

theeWeeBabySeamus

You might be talking about the track off Slippery When Wet, which is very similar to Blaze of Glory, and which I’d link here if the fascists would embed…but they won’t. And by they I mean….YOU KNOW WHO I MEAN!!!!!

Sorry for no Turk Dance with this

Bell Biv DeVoe – Poison

This a really good song to have blaring in your car during a long road trip.

My tastes are eclectic and…
HEY SHUT UP.

Another song that was a favorite of little Wakezilla, Suicidal Tendencies’ “Institutionalized”

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LoF_a0-7xVQ

The remake in the early 90s is pretty garbage because lets be honest, who the fuck drinks that camel piss known as Pepsi?

laserguru

Fuck and all of the yesses!

theeWeeBabySeamus

WCS….don’t you make me start posting country.
And I’ll do it.

Wakezilla

As long as it’s Shania pre throat damage:

I feel the need to apologize for this one, but I’m not gonna.
As an early Bon Jovi fan, and a fan of the Young Guns films, you can all bite me.
Bon Jovi – Blaze of Glory

Wakezilla

Blaze of Glory is a beaut. I haven’t heard that song in years and I’m pretty confident I know 95% of the lyrics.

Marc Trestmans Windowless Van

I am not a Bon Jovi fan but I like that song and those films

WCS

WCS

Wifey and I have agreed that the next time we’re back in Philadelphia, we’re singing this at every karaoke night we can find at our previous regular bars.

Wakezilla

80s themed music?

Here’s my first ever favorite song that I remember liking and asking my dad to repeatedly play on cassette.

Bon Jovi’s “Bad Medicine”

theeWeeBabySeamus

One of my favorite all time albums.
/hangs head in shame

We are never gonna pick up the ladies with that weak shit.
You’ve got to earn how to get hardcore and deal with it.

Man owes hisself the truth!

theeWeeBabySeamus

Great band.
Nonetheless…methinks Yeah Right has earned heself a bit o’ the Crunck.

Earned it?
That shit was bought and paid for Seamus!

Bruce Hornsby was also mentioned, so obligatory

ANOTHER WCS TRUE STORY ALERT:

First time I played this, I had to explain to future-wifey (this was 2005 or ’06) that, no, this isn’t Tupac.

theeWeeBabySeamus

Please say that’s not really true.

WCS

Very, sadly true.

theeWeeBabySeamus

Well, she’s still in the black overall….probably.

WCS went back to the 80’s, I will follow, my first 80’s band I thought of tonight was Hall and Oates

Hall and Oates – Private Eyes

WCS

PENNSYLTUCKY ROCK

…say them last May. For being two dudes in their late 60’s, they still can kick ass.

WCS

So, this went to #1 in 1986. Huey is absolutely one of my top-five faves.

But, it was Hornsby who actually wrote it, and gave to Huey as a favor. An interesting TAEK on his own song:

theeWeeBabySeamus

This made it to #1? Really?
I must have been totally fucking high that whole year.

WCS

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jacob%27s_Ladder_(Huey_Lewis_and_the_News_song)

Alright, so it was ’87. You were still probably high that year, too.

theeWeeBabySeamus

Almost certainly, actually.

laserguru

Here’s to hoping this video is ad free.

I’ve got a Sunday Gravy post that will make you want to cook this Sunday. I promise!

I am so high.

theeWeeBabySeamus

HOW HIGH ARE YOU….???

laserguru

I AM THAT HIGH!

theeWeeBabySeamus

I don’t get it.
Johnny Carson is as funny these days.

Or something like that. You know what I fucking mean.

So, some of you cheesecocks don’t like Rush? Watch this and be proven wrong.

theeWeeBabySeamus

Who doesn’t like Rush?
Give me names and addresses.

theeWeeBabySeamus

Lifeson is da shit.
Fuck all you who say otherwise.

Wakezilla

My first concert I ever went to was Rush. Neil Peart did a 30 minute drum solo and it was amazing

Wakezilla

Nugget #2 about my family and Rush: My dad booked them to perform at highschool dance in the early 70s #thatsactuallykindofacoolstorybro

Wakezilla

/checks bracket

Wow, all things considered, I’m still in pretty good shape.

theeWeeBabySeamus
Wakezilla

Love you too 🙂

theeWeeBabySeamus

Sorry. Most of that is directed at ‘Zona.

Yeah, i got them wrong. Luckily, I had them losing in round 2, so, no big deal

It’s actually 02:13, and the fear has been gone for a while. Don’t know about the gun, though…

I was closing my earlier Melissa Joan Hart tab from earlier and came across this. Am I alone in thinking she looks like an angry gf/wife scolding you while sitting on a toilet? I would assume it is morning and you spent all of the last night getting drunk on here instead of spending time with her in this scenario
