The Office: Cocktails

February 23, 2007

If you watched The Office last night, here is how you play “Up Jenkins!“. 

Favorite Quotes:

Michael: And now, Michael the Magic, will attempt to escape from extreme bondage.

Michael: Wow, this one really smells like vanilla.

Creed: I run a small fake ID company from my car with a laminating machine that I swiped from the sheriff’s station.

Dwight: Oh you know that line on the top of the shrimp? That’s feces.

Dwight: Do you ever watch Battlestar Galactica?
Party guest: No.
Dwight: No? Then you’re an idiot.

Family Force 5 concert videos

February 15, 2007

Here are some  videos from the Family Force 5 concert last Saturday:

Hold Up, Wait A(nother) Minute!

February 12, 2007

I went to see Family Force 5 again this weekend at Spring Arbor, this time with my wife and two boys. These guys are amazing live.  There’s nothing stranger than watching a band as crazy as Family Force 5 inside a steepled church with rows of pews.


Before the show, we got to meet Crouton, the drummer.  I asked if he  remembered the giant twenty dollar bill we gave them in Detroit and he told me it was still in their trailer!


Other highlights of the show:  The lead singer was wearing a sweet Alfred Hitchcock profile t-shirt.   During the last song “Supersonic”, the drummer for Disciple became the sixth member of the group, named “Kit Kat”(see if you can guess why).


After the show my sons Pierce and Rhys were rocking out in the lobby, with Rhys playing air guitar on his wadded up shirt.  I think he ended up on three other people’s cameras and some kid even gave him a quarter!

Grammy Recap

February 12, 2007

2006 – The year my faith was restored in the music industry. The year that saw two of the best albums released in a long time (and by album I mean the entire album) – “Stadium Arcadium” by Red Hot Chili Peppers, and “St. Elsewhere” by Gnarls Barkley. So what recieved Grammy’s highest honors last night? A hooky, overly simplistic, pop/country ditty by the Dixie Chicks! Oh, well.  Maybe 2007 will be better.

(I gotta say, the best performance of the night had to be Gnarls Barkley’s “Crazy” in full airline pilot gear!)

My first montage!

February 9, 2007

I put together this montage for a series called “R.P.M.” at our church. It uses various driving clips from Planes, Trains, and Automobiles, Blues Brothers, Ferris Bueller, Caddyshack, and The Jerk. The song is “Mess Around” by Ray Charles.

Snake of the Week

February 8, 2007


1. We just need to accept the fact that Pat Robertson is so old and senile, he doesn’t understand he is offending anyone.  2. We also need to realize that there are some still out there that believe he represents Christianity, so Pat – please SHUT UP!

Take for example the February 7 edition of the 700 Club, where he was speaking with Kristi Watts about the “gorgeous” (his words) Greta Van Susteren and her apparent plastic surgery:

ROBERTSON: But she got it. She just looks great, and she’s so popular.

WATTS: But have you ever seen someone who got it too much, and so they come up to you, and they’re like, “Pat, how are you doing? It’s so good to see you.”

ROBERTSON: Yeah, they got the eyes like they’re Oriental, and, you know, it’s all pulled (puts fingers up to the side of his face). So, make sure you do it right. But — it’s — that’s one way you can go, but it’ll cost you five or six thousand dollars probably. All right. What else?

Pat – the correct nomenclature is Asian-American, dude.

The Purple One at Super Bowl XLI

February 5, 2007


Just finished watching Prince at the Superbowl.  Finally, a real halftime show!  Purple Rain has never been so literal.  Plus the glow-in-the-dark FAMU marching band was a nice touch.  Can he just play every year from now on?

Favorite Office quotes from last night’s episode

February 2, 2007

My top 3 quotes from the Ben Franklin episode –

Ryan: Is this the same grill you grilled your foot on?
Michael: No. yes.
Ryan: Oh gross.
Michael: But I got all the foot off of it.

Ryan (with Michael in the Adult Store): He hasn’t even said a word yet. Just giggling.

Jim: Michael, Dwight would like your man meat.
Michael: Well then my man meat he shall have.

Snake(s) of the Week

February 2, 2007


The winners this week are the two guys who shut down the city of Boston this past week with blinking signs.  You guys give good old fashioned fear-mongering a bad name.  I mean, look at you.  You’re so…so white!  You keep this up and we won’t know what corner of the globe to invade next!
