Coming Soon!

Well, it seems implausible, but somehow Blogger screwed us and deleted our draft post of our reviews of the new GN'R album Chinese Democracy. We're going to redo them and have it up soon. I'd say look for it by December 15 at the latest!!

In the meantime, enjoy your 12 Days of Gheorghe-mas.

steve lavin just dropped a 'rashomon' reference. i'm a little bit flabbergasted.

TJ said...

What did Sean Avery say this time?

TJ said...

Suspension Day in the NFL - Plaxico and the Diuretics. Not exactly Harold Melvin and the Blue Notes, but close.

Mark said...

Avery made a comment about the NHL enjoying his 'sloppy seconds'. It was primarily about a Calgary player who's dating Elisha Cuthbert but there's another NHL player dating one of Avery's ex's.

Also, this Lance Hurdle fella is taking it to Ohio State all the sudden.

TJ said...

Did you see McClinton get tossed for that retaliation slap?

rob said...

should've at least got his money's worth - that was a bitchy swipe.

TJ said...

They broke it down to start the 2nd half like it was the Zapruder film.

Mark said...

If you're gonna do that, step into it at the very least. But that's those upstate NY guys for you, a bunch of bitches up there.

rob said...

tribe down 13 late in the first - neat.

TJ said...

Get a few tats, think you're a tough guy. I see how it is.

Ink me.

rob said...

we need a gtb logo suitable for turning into tats.

TJ said...

Shouldn't they just call this the ACC/Big Ten Bitch Slapping?

The Big Ten gets worked year after year.

Uh oh, something just occurred to me - we're getting Vitale for Purdue/Duke aren't we?

Mark said...

You figured me out TJ. Thing is, tats just keep getting more popular and common so I'm forced to get more and larger ones in my continued effortsto up my toughness (or appearance of said toughness).

And yes, I fear we are getting Vitale. Even so, I'm pretty pumped for this game. Purdue's a lot of fun to watch (Did you ever think you'd hear/see that?) and super young. With the way Painter's been recruiting in West Lafayette (no small feat), Purdue may be running the Big Ten soon.

Mark said...

One more thing: Florida sucks, or at least isn't nearly as improved as billed. They beat FAMU by 15 and were only up 8 with 7 minutes left.

Whitney said...

The Tribe is offering such a sorry display in Chicago, it reminds one of Peter Cetera.

TJ said...

Siena is better than FL. Upstate NY represent.

TJ said...

I hate Kyle Singler. I think its that god awful hair cut.

rob said...

sweet jesus, make a fucking layup

Mark said...

A couple things:

- E'Twaun is quite an inventive made up name.

- Chris Carrawell is an assistant at Duke now. That's news to me.

TJ said...

We're three minutes in and Vitale is already gonna have an aneurysm...

Mark said...

If Duke's better this year, there's one reason (imo). Nolan Smith. He's a better athlete, penetrator and defender than Duke's had at the point in years and, with their lack of true big and reliance on the drive and kick and uptempo game, is especially important.

TJ said...

I bet Dennis is getting 'lil Dennis a Nolan Smith Fathead for Kwanza.

TJ said...

Watch out Ken Dorsey, Mark's boy Bruce Gradkowski is coming to steal your job.

rob said...

no way these teams keep us this level of intensity, is there?

TJ said...

If they do, Vitale will be dry humping Dan Shulman by halftime.

Whitney said...

There's your YouTube for tomorrow.

rob said...

wow - wizards killing the nets in new jersey.

TJ said...

It certainly wasn't going to win an Oscar, but there was nothing wrong with the Thomas Jane/Travolta "Punisher" movie from a few years back (or even the Dolph Lundgren one from the 80s), so why the fuck do we need another Punisher film?

Whitney said...

This one is focused on the darts game Cricket, and how you need to punish your opponent every time you have an opportunity, rubbing their noses in it even at the expense of needlessly extending the game and boring onlookers. It's really a different sort of film.

rob said...

joke for one

Mark said...

Bruce Gradkowski...makes bad decisions...on a regular basis. He's got a much better arm than Dorsey though. Hell, TJ's probably got a better arm than Dorsey.

Mark said...

Or two, you fucking homos.

TJ said...

I like this Euro on Purdue, Calasan.

TJ said...

Mark, you must have a bad reference book. All arm strength jokes get directed at Michael Jack.

Mark said...

Is he Italian? If so, I hate him.

Whitney said...

Dave would enjoy my joke if he'd stray over here from working on his Daily Sentence. But it takes hours to craft.

TJ said...

Stadler and Waldorf jerking each other off in the balcony. Again.

TJ said...

He's whatever Petrovic was.

Mark said...

I knew small feet jokes were directed his way but I missed the arm strength section. I need to order a new edition.

Mark said...

You mean awesome?

TJ said...

It will be my Chanukkah gift to you.

rob said...

hummel's forcing it

rob said...

calasan is bosnian. or herzvegonian. or swarthy.

TJ said...

Ok, so Vitale has already manged to discuss the BCS, Plax, Marbury, the shitty Lions and Mitch Albom already...

Whitney said...

I just ran some numbers on my Thanksgiving, and the results are a tad alarming. In the 80 hours between 6pm Wednesday and 2am Sunday, I was asleep for 22 of them and not drinking for 8. That left 50 hours of heavy consumption in that time. No wonder I feel so awesome several days later.

Those damn in-laws and their drinking problems really wore off on me. It's really a shame about them.

Mark said...

There's not a basketball game to talk about TJ. What else would you have him do?

TJ said...

And remember, I actually like Vitale.

Mark said...

If you get NBA TV, please flip there right now and take a gander at OJ Mayo is wearing.

TJ said...

Do tell.

Mark said...

Tims (laces undone) with the his black jeans tucked into them. A v-neckish knit sweater that's got a huge collar that is also part of the v-neck. Its spectacularly awful and probably costs more than my car.

Mark said...

Rudy Gay though, is rocking Chucks. Nice work son.

TJ said...

OJ Mayo is the star of my Yahoo fantasy team. As you can guess, my team is poop.

Mark said...

Mayo's so offensive game is so refined for a rookie. he could be a better Chauncey Billups in the right situation.

Mark said...

You know who's not going to be a good pro? Ty Lawson. Career backup at best.

TJ said...

Wait a second. rob, are you saying Lavin somehow slipped a comment in referencing a 50s Japanese rape/murder flick?

TJ said...

And Luke "Hellboy" Harangody.

rob said...

that's what i'm saying, teej. and it was in perfect context - the movie unfolds from multiple perspectives, and lavin was comparing it to the multiple perspectives in the mcclinton slapfight.

TJ said...

Yet another reason to love the lav.

rob said...

tribe fought back...to lose another close one.

rob said...

on the plus side, they started last season 1-5 and 4-7 before figuring things out.

Mark said...

What in the holy hell are you two talking about?

TJ said...

Make a fucking shot

Mark said...

So, Ralph Sampson kid plays for Minnesota and Louis Farrakhan's grandkid plays for UVA?

rob said...

man, gerald henderson can basketball

TJ said...

Does Vitale have just one soap box that travels to all games? Or does he have a different soap box at each game with the home teams logo on it?

rob said...

rashomon, mark

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rashomon_(film)

TJ said...

Did we lose Whitney to the bottle?

Mark said...

I see. Look at Lav talking over my head. Can't say this feels very good.

Mark said...

Singler's handle has gotten a lot better. I don't remember him setting guys up and then pulling up off the dribble last year.

Mark said...

Singler's kind of kicking Hummel's ass tonight.

TJ said...

Purdue is getting their ass kicked.

TJ said...

Mark, I saw the follow dunk by Tyus. Impressive.

Mark said...

He's a nice player, but he's not the best big on a good team.

And, somebody needs to familiarize Vitale with the specifics of the Mendoza line.

TJ said...

You beat me to it...6-6 is not exactly below .200

But that's OK, he's too busy trying to get Coach Knight another gig.

Mark said...

Honestly, if Purdue could score at all they'd be in this game.

Mark said...

Singler with the exclamation point.

Shlara said...

Just got home from the Vampire Weekend gig @ 9:30 Club--great show, even if they only have 10 songs.

Can't believe I missed one of the few Wizards wins though...maybe I'm the "bad luck charm" and need to stop watching for good.

Jesse Marino said...

Strange how the review of Chinese Democracy is, much like the CD itself, being put off until later and later dates until it unavoidably reaches a near mythical level. Let's hope it isn't as much of a let down as Chinese Democrappy was...
