Quick Note to Reese

Dear Reese's,
Your new candy bar Reese's Crispy Crunch Bar isn't fooling anyone...
it's not a Butterfingers.

Stick to what you do best making a creamy peanut butter candy. Stop trying to improve upon perfection by adding white chocolate, marshmallows or cookies. We don't want it.

Also this is called a Kit Kat not a Reese's stick.

Jay's Music Monday

Last week Jay asked me to consider posting a list of raunchy songs for my music Monday selection this week. This really isn't my genera but I thought I would ask for input and give it a go. So let's all forget that it's really Tuesday and enjoy the fun. Since all these songs are bad I will just nominate 5 songs to carry the title of the Raunchiest Songs.

1. My Neck-Khai
- When I used to go clubbing in college nothing cleared the dance floor quicker than this song.
2. Put'em on the Glass-Sir Mix Alot
3. Fantasy- Ludacris
- As if the radio version of the song wasn't dirty enough it just keeps going
4. Ballad of a Dog Named Stains- Red Peters
- not really dirty but funny
5. Can I get a what, what?-Jay Z, Ja Rule
- It was about 2 years until I knew what the "what, what" was and boy was I surprised.

Wow Someone Reads My Blog

I just recently searched for my blog online and saw that not only is it mentioned on Lefty's and Gustav's blog but it was recently mentioned on some random person's blog. It appears that this blogger searches other peoples blog's for post ideas. He was inspired by my post on my Musical Evolution to write his own. Wow I feel so special ! Well original credit must go to Lefty Brown and Gustav for this and I'm still waiting for Justin's.

Anna vs. Jane

Wow I just heard that Anna Nicole Smith was found dead in a Hotel Room. Details are a slim at this point. All I could think of was how similar her life was to Jane Mansfield . Both of them gained celebrity early on for being sex symbols. For a period of time they were both thought to be incredibly beautiful and talented. However both of them appeared to spin out of control and became a mockery of their former selves. Now it appears that both of them have met a tragic, bizzare early demise.

Music Monday

Well this week's topic is Songs named after girls. I was a little late coming up with this topic so I have not given it as much thought as I'd like. I realized that I generally like songs named after girls and I had a hard time thinking of songs for my worst list. But the show must still go on. So here are my 5 best and 1 bad songs named after girls.

The Good
1. Julia- The Beatles
I'm not a big fan of Michelle but I love Julia it's one of my favorite songs off the White Album

2. Brimful of Asha-Cornershop
I feel like a big dork because I've been a huge fan of this song ever since 1998 and I also think Ashawary Rai is the most beautiful woman in the world. I also knew this song was about a famous Indian Movie star but it took me until last week to put the to together.

3. Delilah-Tome Jones
Not a big fan of the add-libbed lyrics people add when Kareokeing but the original is great.

4. Rosa Parks-Outkast
Not much about Rosa Parks other than the title but she did sue them because the song tarnished her image.

5. Mandy-Barry Manilow
Are you happy now Fan-i-lows

The Bad
1. Gloria-Laura Branigan
I'm not sure if I love this song or hate it. I also have no idea what this song is about but it sounds like Gloria is in trouble.

There's a new Ugly Dog in town

Unfortunately in November of this year Sam , who holds the title of the Ugliest Dog, died.

But there is a new World's Ugliest Dog. Meet Archie. He is a Chinese crested, the same breed as Sam.

His parents say "Little kids tend to throw rocks at Archie. Strangers feel no shame looking casually at him and exclaiming “What an ugly dog.” So I figure he must have a shot."
