I'm going to open up with last week's Kid Nation. I must think highly of this show if it takes top billing in the first paragraph. A few weeks are in the books, it's not too late to get on this bandwagon. Again, The_Freak was bored and we got the online commentary going. You know you want to join in if you're not doing anything else online at that time. A lot went down on this episode, but I'll make it short. They had a "party" night and that consisted of chugging pop (soda just seems weird to me) all night they 't get much sleep. They woke up whining, can ya believe that with this group? Greg, the big kid, he flips out and wants to take over. He starts cussing like a madman. How is that not good TV? F-bombs galore from kiddies, that cracks me up, I can't be the only one. What else happens? Colton dominated the sheep herding challenge. The kids go nuts on Taylor for being a big baby and rightfully so. She needs one of these kids just to bust her once to teach her a lesson. My middle school kids at work always want to rumble and think they're bad even when they're not, I should send them after her. The gold star winner this time goes to 8-year old Mallory. Greg says she only got it because it was her birthday and he's bitter.
The_Freak with some funny comments that I thought were worth posting:
The_Freak (8:33:56 PM): They have chicks on here that weigh more than you do.
The_Freak (8:34:03 PM): ...and you could be some of their fathers.
The_Freak (8:34:12 PM): You could be ALL of their fathers...
Last Saturday it was time to get out of the mean streets for a day. I decided to roll to the mountains with my parents and stay at a place they have. On Saturday we hit up the Buckwheat Festival in scenic Kingwood, West Virginia. Not sure how scenic it is, but you know, that sounded good. You go for the buckwheat cakes and they weren't too bad. Also, I loaded up on greasy, dirty carnival food. While there, there's a few places where you can see some of the show animals. We got to hang with goats, pigs, sheep, and cows. I'm not around farm animals, so I was out of my element, but goats are good times. I need one in my room like Rob & Big did with their mini horse. Maybe the first time I've touched a cow if you can believe that.
Tuesday night came around and I figured I'd try out some new shows on ABC starting at 8:00. The first, Cavemen. I liked the first episode and thought it was worth the watch. It's pretty funny, not bust out nonstop, but still good. I'll give it another chance. The second, Carpoolers. Go out of your way to see this show. I thought the premiere was excellent, so I hope my blessing on that doesn't jinx the second week. With half hour shows, don't give me the excuse you can't find time in your busy schedule to watch. DVR it and watch it whenever, it's worth it.
Real World is getting some crazy drama. We have Parisa and Trish going after the same dude. Trish has a dude at home, but still thinks the guy in Sydney is hers instead of Parisa's. They both end up making out with the the dude that night. I can almost predict it now. Trish will break up with her man at home or vice versa and she'll break down like the kids on Kid Nation. After she breaks down, she'll say how she loved him so much yet she's fooling around with the guy in Sydney. Take a seat you dirty. At least Parisa has the right to be as dirty as she wants with the guy since she's single. After that, Shauvon and her fake body freak out that a guy called her a 6 out of 10 to her face. She thinks so highly of herself that she didn't know what to think when he didn't call her a 10. Then Parisa said the dude was just doing that to mess with her, but it took her forever to figure out. And this stuff is the Real World? It's just a grown up version of Kid Nation.
The good deed of the week for me went down on Friday. I went to the bank and roll into the drive-thru. I see this woman beside me and she's cranking on this junker car and can't get it started. I'm by far one of the worst people with cars ever. I can change a tire, check my oil, put windshield washer fluid in, and that's about my extent. Instead of offering to "help" fix the car, I asked if she needed a ride. She put the car in neutral and I had to push it to the side of the bank. I didn't have to drive her far and didn't really offer a ton of help, but hey, it's better than nothing. Chalk one up for the nice guy.
Maybe I'm missing the hype totally. I know a lot of people think Dane Cook is the next coming, but I don't get him. Maybe it's because I have to see his grill on every single commercial break during the baseball playoff games. Another thing I see on these commercials is Frank TV. Dude's show doesn't start till November 20th and they've already ran it down our throats. It was funny the first few times with his impressions, but now they're just, ugh. We take a short break to hear The_Freak's opinion on Dane Cook:
The_Freak (5:23:22 PM): Dane Cook is a fucking shithead
Something I haven't done in a long time deals with wrestling. In some of my older blogs, I'd end with Jim Ross going crazy at the end of every RAW. I'd post his quotes and if you're a wrestling fan, they're worth it every single time of how he screams and yells. He can talk about anything and you're interested. Here's how last week went:
Cena's face smashing the table! Good Gawd King! Randy Orton may just have won the WWE Title! There's no rules! There's no limits! This is beyond a wrestling match. This is beyond personal. This is about family and survival! We thought Orton was in Chicago. What a lie that was! Good Gawd! My Gawd! Insanity! I have seen car crashes that were more mundane than this. No rules! No limits! Is there any way that John Cena can survive this Sunday at No Mercy on pay per view?
It's time for some new CDs. Most of these I just got in the past day or so and haven't had the time to review them. Either way, we'll still put in what we have added to the collection, I loaded up. 13 new ones here. I'm just going to do a quick list instead of writing an opinion.

3 Quick Thangs:
1. Birthdays for Tuesday, October 9th are beyond brutal when it comes to the celebs. So with that in mind, we're going to nix hyping up any birthdays for this edition. Instead, I'll give a quick word of advice on food: Melt some butter, olive oil, oregano, Italian seasoning, and garlic salt in a pot. Then get some fresh bread and dip it into that stuff. Good times indeed.
2. Our fun fact? There are more plastic flamingos in America than real ones. I research this stuff like a champ.
3. Friday night/Saturday morning, I went to bed at 8:00 AM. Saturday night/Sunday morning, I also went to bed at 8:00 AM. Then I wake up for work the next day at 6:00 AM. The moral? I'm still a mess.
