Seven Things This Penn Stater Believes

November 10, 2011

We don’t get too political here on Don’t get me wrong, I’d like this to be your home for important debate about Charlie Brown holiday specials, WWE-themed ice cream bars, and super sexy Halloween costumes, but other than that, you’re not going to see me too riled up about anything here.

So, if you’re not interested in one a-hole’s beliefs, feel free to check back later…


Unanswered Questions from Classic Rap Songs

November 2, 2011

I’ve learned a lot from late-80s, early-90s hip hop…

I learned that every last lady and homie are down with O.P.P.

I learned that Sir Mix-A-Lot prefers ladies with large posteriors.

And I learned that Bo Jackson doesn’t know jack because he doesn’t possess the ability to rap.

But decades later there are still some answers that continue to elude me…

My New Favorite Thing…

OK, here’s where I kill my cool cred.

(But Gordon, how can you lose something you never had?)


From time to time I’ll scour YouTube looking for sweet acapella songs.


Yes, really. I also talk to myself.

Back to my original point, from time to time I’ll scour YouTube looking for cool acapella songs. Today I found this sweet mash-up of Michael Jackson’s “Billie Jean” and Bell Biv DeVoe’s “Poison” from a group called “Straight No Chaser.”

OK, I need you to look at the picture below and tell me whether it’s a bust of Ludvig Van Beethoven or Kurt Russell.

Russell or Beethoven?

I anxiously await your responses.

A Salute to Snopes

May 9, 2011

The Internet has been a part of my life for seventeen years. It’s amazing the impact it has had in that time. It’s helped me reconnect with childhood friends. It’s provided me with the first glimpses of my niece and nephew. It’s given me the ability to pursue my dream career. Go Internet.

The Internet also amazes me with the ways it has changed over the years. Scoops used to be my first stop every day for wrestling news. I used to live on my Friendster page. I must’ve checked Cardinals Diaspora every five minutes during the Cards 2006 World Series run. But now? Tastes have evolved, trends have evolved. Some sites went out of business, some are now obsolete.

Much A-Duh About Nothing

April 1, 2011

Apparently the Associated Press caught Paris Hilton making a not-so-subtle dig at Kim Kardashian the other day. The professional party girl was quoted as saying, “There’s so many people out there who try to imitate what I do, but I am the original. There is nothing like me.”

For those of you keeping score at home, she’s basically saying she’s the best at having no discernible talents or skills.

Perhaps that is a skill in itself?

Food Review: Dunkin’ Donuts Pancake Bites

November 14, 2010

I’ve said it before, we live in a truly amazing age for consumers. Toothpaste used to be just mint, Gatorade had maybe five flavors, and coffee was the only energy drink on the market. Now? They’re cramming pretzels into M&Ms and marketing chicken sandwich that use chicken breasts as bread.

So, when I heard Dunkin’ Donuts was going to start marketing Pancake Bites I had to jump on that. I love me some pancakes. Why hadn’t anyone though of this sooner? I soon realized why. Upon further investigation, I learned that there was a sausage center to these bad boys. I’d imagine scientists at the Dunkin’ labs stared at pancakes for decades wondering, “How can we jam meat into those things?”

(…grow up.)


Extra Whatnot

November 10, 2010

Here are some little bits of Whatnot that don’t deserve their own posts…

If you’re a waitress who has to put up with my dad’s terrible jokes, I’ll make sure you get a good tip.

The guy who takes tickets on my train wore a Phillies tie a few weeks ago that had flashing lights on it. I thought it was a special occasion tie, but now all of his neckwear has flashing lights on it. I guess if you find your thing you should run with it.

Is there a more polarizing food in the world than tomatoes?
