It's like Sam the Eagle bringing Alice the meat...

Sorry, but rob and I decided that Greasetruck song needed to be bumped down. How to replace it? Muppet mash-up of course...enjoy:

Greasetruck is so special, it almost needs it own blog.

T.J. said...

I think this is one time where even you are fine with a muppet clip "post".

Geoff said...

I, for one, welcome our new Muppet overlords.

The best part about the Greasetruck post was it began harmlessly about overly maudlin television episodes -- and then took a hard left and went to a dark, frightening place nobody could have foreseen. I figured there would be some kind of silly parody of Blossom or Arnold Drummond . . . I was wrong.

T.J. said...

That very easily could've been written by Ed Kowalczyk in 1993.

d-train, we finally have the third celeb death: Blanche Deveraux

d-train said...

D-TRAIN!!!!!!!

d-train said...

and speaking of rob, where's the fella been? is he okay? i'm worried about the little shaver.

T.J. said...

He's been busy filming...

no you DIH'IHN!

Mr. Truck said...

this very special greasetruck episode has just begun. there's still parts III, IV, and V, plus the xmas special.

and the song has a happy ending! (except for renee)

i can't believe greasetruck was bumped for muppets, although this has happened to great rock bands before . . .

i've told them a hundred times: put SPINAL TAP first and puppet show last.

Mr. Truck said...

also, i guess soundcloud sends a facebook reminder every time i upload a new song, including this one, which id din't really need to share with everyone . . .

zman said...

I wouldn't link my soundcloud account to my facebook account if I were you.

I think "Reverse Abortion" needs a break in there somewhere. There's no real hook so a break would spice it up.

Mr. Truck said...

there's no break when you're contemplating abortion, zman.

zman said...

Samantha Stosur just crushed Jelena Jankovic. Stosur must be juicing like Clemens' wife. No one comes out of nowhere at age 26 in pro tennis.

zman said...

This is how the Teej and I warm up for our radio show.

You watch videos of strong black men workout? Interesting.

Igor said...

1.7 Maytag dishwashers are being recalled. This news bit incorporates both the very special episodes on Diff'rent Strokes and WKRP in Cincinnati. And yet, we're not really talking about that because of What Mr. Truck Wrote.

T.J. said...

+690 zman

T.J. said...

Gordon Jump refuses to even speak to Mr. Truck...

zman said...

How do you recall seven-tenths of a dishwasher?

T.J. said...

Very carefully.

Igor said...

Rob, by the way, is busy at work trying to reverse aging, since there's a big milestone looming in his very near future.

Igor said...

Zman, I forgot to include the M after 1.7. Thanks for being such a HOO.

zman said...

Is that milestone the purchase of a minivan?

zman said...

I should know better than to ask this, but ... what's a HOO?

Igor said...

Sorry. I left out another M.

oron.

Geoff said...

Okay, what's a HOOM?

Oh.

I get it.

HOMO.

Good one.

Marls said...

I love the Z-Man doing his best Chris Russo by making random blanket statements about women's tennis.

I would have loved to have seen Dudley's reaction when he read that day's script and found out that Mr. Carlson from WKRP was going to molest him. Clearly he had a bad agent.

zman said...

oron = mormon? I'm not Mormon.

Igor said...

Word has it that Cockroach had a "no molestation" clause written into his contract. Dudley paved the way so that millions who followed would never have to suffer the gropes of Gordon Jump.

T.J. said...

No boy will ever have to "Jump Around" again.

Igor said...

With Conrad Bain and Charlotte Rae in their 80's, Todd Bridges stands a good chance of being the last original Diff'rent Stroker standing. But make no mistake, this one's gonna come down to the wire.

zman said...

Burt Reynolds is still alive, right? He's Stroker Ace

T.J. said...

Tom Ace, also still alive.

Geoff said...

Ideally, I'd like Bain and Rae to both die of strokes...while Bridges dies while "strokin' it."

Marls said...

If WKRP had an episode where Conrad Bain molested Herb Tarlek, that would have been very special indeed.

T.J. said...

Not to be an ass, but what happened to Gary Coleman...you could kinda classify that as a stroke of a different kind, no?

Mr. Truck said...

maybe the next very special greasetruck song will be about when when a child that is a bit "special" gets molested by gary coleman's ghost.

did anyone here the 911 call? people were describing it at work today and now i want to hear it.

T.J. said...

Todd Bridges will be playing Eddie Griffin in this summer's very special NBA TV afterschool special (music by GreaseTruck)

zman said...

fyi - the "Reverse Greasetruck" post garnered a complimentary comment. Admittedly it looks like spam, but it's complimentary nonetheless.

zman said...

"Neat"?!? He really said "neat"!?! From ESPN.com:

Roethlisberger, who was known for frequenting nightclubs with an entourage of friends, did not specify what changes he is making.

"Well, a lot of them are personal things, which is just something that I need to do," Roethlisberger said of his lifestyle changes. "But it's been neat being able to really reevaluate my life and spend time with my family and kind of reevaluate and refigure what's important in life . . . It's a new chapter and I'm looking forward to it and it starts with football and I'm glad to be back out here."

Geoff said...

"Its been neat. I mean, its just been cool...thinkin' about how "rapey" I've been...and how maybe bein' a little less "rapey" might be something kinda good to do...and stuff."

T.J. said...

Just to confirm, since I've been wandering around twitter aimlessly for the last hour...

I just sat ten feet to the right of the AZ Gov, drinking a Dos Equis...and yes (lame joke coming) I was not deported.

katherine said...

wow teej, you've been drinking near a lot of celebrities lately. and probably next to a lot of regular folks too, i would imagine.

T.J. said...

Hmmm...if I knew who this was I could at least judge the level of condescension...

KQ said...

sorry, one of my other personalities took over for a minute there.

T.J. said...

Thanks a lot Drexdrago.

drexdrago said...

DRAGO!!!!!!!

zman said...

marlsmago

drexdrago said...

I'd have gotten away with it if not for those meddling kids!

zman said...

Zoinks.

T.J. said...

I'm still curious what "Danielle" has to say.

rob said...

innnteresting rumors floating about the internets regarding college football realignment. one today claims that the pac-10 will invite texas, texas a&m, texas tech, colorado, oklahoma, and oklahoma state. megaconferences, here we come.

T.J. said...

Um, you are aware Big East hoops went to the 16 team megaconference years ago, right?

rob said...

no, what are you talking about?

Dave said...

it will take too long to explain, but i almost had to strangle my youngest son this evening, and it took all my strength not to strangle him. i just wrote a long sentence about it for tomorrow-- i'll give you one clue: it involves a premeditated plumbing disaster. maybe we should have gotten hamsters . . . or an iguana, instead of this whole two boys thing we've got going on.

Mark said...

Pour some out for the Wizard of Westwood.

T.J. said...

99 Problems...of which Bill Walton was one

Marls said...

RIP Mr. Wooden. His death matters to me more than a lot of folks. Feels like childhood died tonight.

T.J. said...

Mark, the twitter now claims Wooden is NOT dead.

Mark said...

I should've known better. He's a zombie.

T.J. said...

Twilight: Westwood

Shlara said...

Does anyone else find Jeff Van Gundy's commentary annoying?

Marls said...

Johnny 5 alive!!!!

Oh, and in my previous comment I meant that wooden's death was more meaningful to me than say Gary Coleman. I did not mean to imply that JW and I were hanging out at in and out burger together after going to westwood strip clubs.
