Happy 25th!

25 years ago, the rocket lifted off and the Buggles came on the screen letting us know of the demise of the radio star. It's scary that I'm really good friends with someone that has been around less time than MTV. I remember they used to play videos and then at least had VH1 played some videos. Now with such lovely fare as Fresh Meat on the original and The Surreal Life on junior, you pretty much need digital cable for a chance to catch a video with either the deuce or VH1 Classic.

Tonight they are rebroadcasting the 1st day from 25 years ago starting at 11PM. Yes, I am recording it. I know this makes me a dork, but "I want my MTV!"

Long Live the Moon Man!

You Are 82% Evil

You're the most evil person you know.
The devil is even a little scared of you!

The bikes come out at night

Well I did my first post-MS Ride last night/this morning. I remember last year's L.A.T.E. Ride being a nightmare due to being packed in so tightly that I could barely move. This year I was near the front of the pack and as soon as they let us start, Liz and I took off. We wound up passing the pace car a couple times and got to a deserted rest stop for part II of Peanut Butter Jelly Time.

We wound up finishing the 25 mile ride in just under 2 hours. Not bad when you factor in the 25 minutes we spent eating Uncrustables and granola bars. The worst part was getting back at 3:30 and having to wait for the sun to rise. I'm just glad we weren't in the other group of friends that were there. They thought it would be a good idea to stop at a bar on the way. Precisely the reason we didn't ride with them.

After the ride, we headed to Jen's to drop off bikes and have a mini-mopundow breakfast. Liz was supposed to meet us there, but her body betrayed her and she fell asleep. I got home and took a nap and now I'm just staying out of the 100 degree heat we have outside.

Don't F--- with....Rayvn?

I'm not sure why...nobody I've talked to can come up with any good reason for this. It seems the lovely folks over at Disney have decided to remake a classic. The only babysitter worth a damn was Elisabeth Shue. She may have to live down being part of the debacle that was Back To the Future Part II, but she warned us not to fuck with the babysitter!
