A few years ago, I knew a girl who was a singer.  Still is I guess.  Sort of.

She is actually quite good, truth be told.  Or at least she could have been.  She has amazing range.  No shit.

And I don’t mean I knew her “biblically”.  I got locked into the friend zone with her rather quickly.  Which was fine.  And probably for the best.  But I still thought her talent was quite amazing and I tried to get a friend in New York to give her a shot.  Which she got.

But she fucked it up, mostly because she turned out to be quite the narcissist.  Her attitude was terrible (which frankly, I took some heat for…my mistake) and it ended up getting her fired from the club she was singing in in New York because of it.  Now she lives in a van in Florida with some dude.  And now she reads tarot cards at renaissance fairs to make ends meet.  And I guess pay for gas.  Holy. Shit.

No I’m not lying.

Amongst other things, she hated all other female singers and didn’t mind saying so to anyone who would listen.  My own personal opinion is that it was because she never hit it as big as she thought she should have, and was envious of any other female singer who actually became successful.  But admittedly that is only speculation on my part.  But it seems accurate enough.

But all of that aside, her alleged claim to fame is that she once made out with Gwen Stefani in a bar in New York.  I don’t know if it’s true or not, but I’ve often thought that if it is….  well…

I sure would have liked to have been there to watch!!!!!

Yes, I’m still a horrible human being.  We’ve covered this already.

But it’s still Gwen Stefani  week anyway.  She’s our special princess this week.

Plus, she’s kinda cute.

I have to go throw up a little bit now.  Then I’ll be back to feeling Hella Good….

Don’t Stay Up All Night Folks, Get Some Rest

Season 4 was shit. Bringing it back was a huge mistake.

To Redshirt: I wasn’t calling you a “dipshit.” It’s all of those pricks I’ve had the disservice to talk to who think they would be able to take on the entire US military, the same one they claim to love, that their idea that can overthrow the “tyrant government,*” is just idiotic. Wannabe Rambos with a lot of firearms. These are the dickheads who cause mass shootings.

*only applicable when Obama was President

I didn’t realize you may have called me one, but thanks for the clarification.

Besides I am a “dipshit” and I’ve been called worse by my mother. We’re cool.

SonOfSpam

If it helps, I don’t think you’re a dipshit. Perhaps a child buggerer and a communist, but not a felching gardener.

Because this is stressful as fuck.

SonOfSpam

4 seed. We’re a 13 at worst (if we finish the job)

King Hippo

Fuck yes. A win and missed cover by 1.

But who the fuck cares.

Final tomorrow at about 11:30 pm EDT on The Deuce.

The whole fucking album really. This came out when I was in 12 when I was still in Boy Scouts. We were all goofy inner city white boy types, with tastes that consisted entirely of ska (so much mephiskapheles) and In Living Color reruns (we literally spent entire weekends doing nothing but reenacting sketches to the utter dismay of the adults). So when Tragic Kingdom dropped and the hormones kicked in, No Doubt pretty much dominated our musical rotation, discussion, and filthy little subconsciouses.

ballsofsteelandfury

In Living Color is highly underrated. That show was genius.

King Hippo

I mean, even JIM CARREY was funny on that!

This is the banned “Bolt-45” sketch which was from the pilot episode (I believe) and was so over the top it was too much for even Fox. But it somehow made it into the East Coast feed and was thus recorded by home VCRs:

Perhaps the only true benefit of having shit awful parents is that I got to experience all the good shit early. In Living Color was appointment watching for me from the ages of 7-11

King Hippo

that’s GOOD parenting, nothing wrong with kiddies watching In Living Color! It taught me lots of good race lessons.

Gratliff

With the full fucking intro for some reason

King Hippo

I NEVAR feel more alone around the Clubhouse than when No Doubt/Gwen Stefani are discussed.

there is insufficient of ant eating in this here ballgame

You know, after “Non Sequitur” was dropped by my local newspaper for using profanity on his comic strip, I have four weeks of “Nancy”. On behalf of newspaper subscribers, I would like to say I’m sure they are sorry, I’m sure they won’t do it again and please switch them back. Its comic page equivalent of having the last show on the Saturday Morning Kids Block be a show on paint drying.

Love the Gwen Stefani theme. I’ve always had a thing for her and it’s because her handlers have done a good job making her feel accessible to people like us.

Degenerate lesser footy gamblers, Ole was pretty mum about his roster for tomorrow, but, reading between the lines, it sounds more like he’ll play a U23 squad to rest up his banged up starters

King Hippo

ur a good imaginary buddy-guy, Wakey. $30 on Wolves to win 1st half (+295), $30 to win the match (+244)

/also cheeky $5.60 bet on Swans to win 1st half over City (+1230)

Beto O’Rourke is what you get when you put Bill Clinton in a blender with the Red Hot Chili Peppers.

Also go UC Irvine Anteaters!!!! Zot Zot!!!
playing tonight vs Long Beach, should be a good game.

Wakezilla

Crazy thing about O’Rourke is that he ranks in the 80s in terms of how left he is. Fucking Pelosi is more “left” than him

SonOfSpam

Yeah, he’s charismatic, but he’s only above like Bernie and Gabbard on my list of Dems. Again, I’d vote for a non-sentient dog turd over Trump, but let’s chill on the Beto love.

King Hippo

Josh Marshall at TPM is hinting that maybe this guy’s a phony. I trust his read better than any other political analyst.

My ranked choice:

1) Harris
2) Warren
3) Mayor Pete
4) Klobuchar
5) Booker
6) Biden
—–
99998) Sanders
99999) Gabbard

Will vote for my cat over the last two.

SonOfSpam

I am good with your rankings. Don’t like Klobuchar (electability issues), but otherwise yeah. President Kamala sounds good. And holy fuck does the fascist sector HATE her.

King Hippo

YUP.

So I’ve got the earworms from listening to part of Hide & Seek, and it drives me insane that Namie Amuro has turned all her official videos into 1 min previews, so let’s go with the “Blind” World of Warcraft (3 years clean, g’bless) not-quite-machinima that brought the song to the States. The speed in which my brain started processing the lore and the names of the gear being worn is what I imagine it’s like for a recovering gambling addict walking by a random pick-up game of poker. So here it is: WoW at the peak of quality and fan engagement. Hey did you know you can subscribe to official Vanilla servers and play the game as it was in January 2007? Haha, what a funny idea. *burns computer, desk, and house just to be safe*

Alright, time to watch my alma mater get their collective dicks ripped off.

What was it like to live as a college student during those 5 years between when it first came out (2005) and when it started to get banned & “reformulated” (2010)?

King Hippo

I’d buy it!

I still see it on store shelves. Of course, the stores that stock it are… questionable.

Is it true that they changed the formula?

Fine, I’ll take her, and you can have like Bette Midler or something.

Jenny Diane Lewis is better on all counts

Better singer and musician, and certainly attractive…you know, I’ll just sit it out and watch those two go at it.

Speaking of pieces of ass . . .

I posted this way late last night so nobody saw it. You should watch it if you get a chance. It’s kind of hypnotic.

This first one is a pretty cool video. No narration, no music, no nothin’ except a Japanese guy carving up a giant tuna, from whole all the way down to prepared sushi. He uses a Santoku knife at first (my good kitchen knife is a German-made Zwilling Santoku and it’s awesome) but halfway through he switches to a long thin knife that I believe is called a Yanagi. It seems sharp as shit. In fact, I don’t know how this guy still has all of his fingers.

After I watched this I wanted to go down to the wholesale fish market in San Pedro and buy a bluefin tuna and cut it up ever thusly:

Col. Duke LaCross

What are you, some kind of Rockefeller? One of those fish in high grade can fetch 15-20 grand apiece!

Col. Duke LaCross

Also, that video ruled. It’s always awesome to see an artist at work.

Beerguyrob

Yes yes… You met a girl called Lola and took her back to your place. Feeling guilty, feeling scared, hidden cameras everywhere.

STOP!

Gwen is in that rare “even better with age” zone.

SonOfSpam

Three things:

a) Nice post, and I agree with your assessment of Gwen and her qualities or what have you
8) I knew the No Doubt guitarist Tom Dumont in high school. He was a nice guy who had shaggy hair and usually wore Iron Maiden or Judas Priest t-shirts. When they hit it big, my reaction was…wait, that guy??? But I’ve always been happy for him since he was someone I remember as non-dickish (no small feat at my high school).
&) Hella Good is the best No Doubt song.

ballsofsteelandfury

I thought everything changed when she broke up with Tony. The band was never the same.

Porky Prime
Porky Prime

Interesting, accurate take. They went from a band of friends to four professional musicians who remain together for smart financial reasons. The band never breaks up, they just do the extended hiatus bit for Gwen to do solo projects and so they never become oversaturated relics. It’s good business, but they became a product rather than a vital group pretty much right after Gwen had her successful solo debut.

Simple Kind of Life is still my favorite song of theirs though.
