guess1

1. This guy’s band’s initials are also a brand of car fuel additive.


guess3

2. If he took off his glasses we might see that his eyes are quite bright. And emo.

3. (For my Freehold homies.)


guess5

4. You can’t tell from the picture, but this little guy smells like teen spirit.

5. Just imagine him bald. With Tila Tequila somewhere in the vicinity.

Leave your guesses in the comments or, if you’re a big cheater, roll on over to Rolling Stone’s amazing gallery for the answers.



Just the other day I was wondering what Mayim Bialik was up to…

It’s apparently this:

beard

His name is David Travers, and he is from Alaska.

His beard was made into the shape of a snowshoe. The weaving took him 90 minutes.

No word yet on whether a trip to Disney World is scheduled for the future.

Sweeter than a cherry pie with Reddi-Whip toppin’

The Beasties were on Jimmy Fallon last night and I have to give him props for not peeing himself, given that he said they were his favorite band and given that I would have probably lost control of bodily functions had I been in his position.  The boys are working on a new LP called Hot Sauce Committee (out this September), but they were on the talk show promoting the re-issue of 1992’s Check Your Head. Please to enjoy their performance of “So What’cha Want,” with the Roots backing. :

As cool as a cucumber in a bowl of [what?] hot sauce? Maybe there was some promotion of the new album after all.

Next re-issue: Ill Communication, out July 6th.

Probably not a surprise, but I am loving this recent influx of Beasties on my TV. See if you can spot Mike D and Ad Rock among the many celebrities in the “Kidney Now” video below, from the season finale of 30 Rock a few weeks ago:

I’m one of the drunk ones.

50 Cent and Bette Midler at Midler’s New York Restoration Project’s 8th Annual Spring Picnic yesterday in NYC.

He was also photographed cozying up to Gayle King (okay, fine, just posing with her, but they’re rather close, aren’t they?):

Curtis is lookin’ goooood. But here’s what I want to know: did he bring his magic stick? ‘Cause those are some of the baddest chicks…

Who would win in a fight?

Round one: tough puppies.

ninja-puppy

Ninja puppy silently judges you to death. Also, he is a ninja and has mad skills.


puppypirate

After giving them a coy over-the-shoulder look, Pirate puppy questions his opponents on synonyms for “pirate’s treasure.” When they say “booty” he barks “And that’s just what I’m gonna kick!”


puppybatman

Batman puppy is tired. “Am I Bruce Wayne? Am I Batman? A puppy? Oy, I give up, you win, yada yada. I’m just gonna take a nap.”


darth-vader-dog-costume

Darth Vader puppy is the Dark Lord of the Sith and all but for the winner of this round I’m gonna go with …


scrap

Scrappy-Doo. This kid’s been blamed for the downfall of his uncle’s show, so he’s got something to prove. Plus, he’s got a catchphrase. And crazy-eyes. Do yourself a favor and stay out of his way.

Runner-up: Ninja puppy. For his mad skills.


Feel free to disagree with me.

There’s punk rock mad libs too. Fun!

Three notes on my fridge

Roommate 1: Why are there pants in the freezer?

Roommate 2: I’m trying to freeze some gum off of them.

Roommate 3: Oh, they look like mine. I thought I got drunk and put them in there.

(A re-blog but still makes me laugh… Plus, pretty sure nobody read it the first time around.)
