Five Thoughts on a Friday – The “Last one we’ll ever do?” edition

Howdy folks welcome to what could possibly be the last Five Thoughts on a Friday. What? No, we’re not throwing in the towel or anything like that. It’s the whole end of the world thing. We aren’t pulling the plug on the blog, but the plug may be getting pulled on mankind. Or not. I know I’m not going to lose any sleep over it. Let’s get started, shall we?

  1. There’s a group out there saying the world will end on May 21st. And THIS TIME they know they’ve got it right. Turns out they got it WRONG back in 1994. Warning though, some of the stuff in the article can make your head spin. And not in the Exorcist sense.
  2. The CDC (Center for Disease Control) has gotten in on the apocalypse talk. Of course, they were referring to the Zombie Apocalypse. I think it’s great to see a government agency having a little fun, and getting some good info out there at the same time.
  3. Of course, I love a good apocalypse, but I just don’t get the whole Zombie fascination. How and when did the Zombies become the “hot” thing to cause an apocalypse? Why not Vampires? Oh, that’s right vampires aren’t scary anymore thanks to “Twilight”. Now they F***ing SPARKLE in the sun. If that’s not a sign, I don’t know what is!
  4. Not the end of the world, but one step closer to the end of an era. The Sahara in Las Vegas is closing its doors. Not many of the old time places left now. I love the new ones, but there’s just something about the older ones. Better try to see what few are left before they’re gone. Or the world ends. (And it’s worth clicking that link just for the very “Old Vegas” looking picture they used in the post.)
  5. Or maybe the world WILL end. Of course, I considered David Hasselhoff doing “Hooked on a Feeling” to be a sign of the apocalypse, but we’re still here. Or we’ve hit the first circle of Hell.

Ok, that’s five end of the world/apocalypse themed thoughts and I’m off to to find some sort of mischief to get in to.As for your video… the easy one would be REM’s End of the World. We’re not gonna do that. Oh No. If we’re going down, we’re talking everyone with us…

Have a great weekend folks! (However long or short it may be!)

Five thoughts on a Friday – The “I forgot to pick a title” edition

Happy Friday everyone. Here we are on another Friday. Looks beautiful outside from where I’m sitting. Only problem is – that’s *inside* so I can’t personally verify if it *is* beautiful outside. Ah well… On with today’s post!

  1. I live in a state where it’s illegal to text message while driving. I’m totally cool with that. Why though, when I drive by the digital state run traffic board on the way home does it often try to direct me to a state website for traffic updates?!?!? Honest officer! I wasn’t texting! I was just punching in the Michigan traffic website address from that sign back there to check for any traffic jams.
  2. Las Vegas apparently now has it’s own “Death Ray“.  Awesome. I think I’ll stick to jumping off of the top of the Stratosphere tower though. Thanks.
  3. I know it’s generated by an automatic process, but I’m still trying to figure this one out. I recently got a “suggestion” email from Amazon.com….
    As someone who has purchased or rated Grand Theft Auto Vice City , you might like to know that Dora the Explorer: Dora’s Big Birthday Adventure will be released on October 26, 2010.  You can pre-order yours by following the link below.
    Exactly HOW Dora the Explorer and GRAND THEFT FREAKING AUTO are related….. I’m not entirely sure.  At least they aren’t (at least I hope they aren’t!) suggesting the Grand Theft Games based on buying Dora games!
  4. People View More Porn After Their Candidate Wins an Election
    Apparently most voters are single and living alone these days, huh? Or did they only survey married couples that voted for opposing candidates? Hmmm?  “You’re sleeping on the couch tonight!”
  5. As you get older, you see things you never thought you would. A man on the moon, the Berlin wall falling. Dee Snyder of Twisted Sister singing on Broadway…. Wait, run that last one by me again… Yeah. Ok. I got nothing.

Ok, that’s a Fast Five for today and I’m off to wade through the stuff standing between me and the weekend.
(Could only find the video I wanted preceded by an into, but still….)
Wonder if Dee will sing this one on Broadway?

Have a great one folks!

Five Thoughts on a Friday – The Shock the Monkey Edition

Good morning, and welcome to another Friday. And another edition of Five thoughts. First off though, Congratulations to our own Kingkeilbasa on his new position – He won’t be missed here though, because he isn’t leaving. (YES,  he is still here!)

  1. NFL Free Agency started overnight, and there’s already the annual proclamations of “He’s not worth that much!”. You know what, you’re right. Technically, non of them are. But to change sports for an analogy, let’s use an approximation of a quote from Hall of Fame baseball manager “Sparky” Anderson. “it’s Baseball, the real world doesn’t have any bearing here”. Same thing here folks, it’s pro football – reality has no bearing on the salaries these guys get.
  2. I had notes for this week’s post. What I did with them I have NO idea. I’m certain I put them someplace where I was sure I would remember them and wouldn’t lose them.
  3. Hotel rooms in Vegas starting from $29 a night? Cool!  Airfare starting at almost $400 a person? Not cool!  Ok, admit it airlines, the casinos are getting a cut of that airfare, aren’t they?
  4. This one speaks for itself…Boozy chimp sent to rehab. So, who exactly gave the chimp the booze and smokes to begin with?  Granted, if the angry monkey wants my beer – I’d probably give it to him. If only to buy time to run away. Maybe they’ll cure him with shock treatments!  (And now you know how I picked the “Edition” name for this week! It was either that or Drunk Monkey edition)
  5. I just have to ask…. WHY? Aussie Underwear has gone bananas So, it’s made from bananas? Ok, that brings to mind TWO things.
    First obviously, is WHY?
    Second…  For God’s sake! Keep those things away from that drunken chimp!!!!

Just for the drunk monkey, since there was a video for this one.

That’s five, and it’s sunny outside so I am out of here.

Have a Great Weekend Folks!
