But last night I decided to see the Smashing Pumpkins instead (Let’s just say eighth grade B-Boy is very convincing.). Before we go any further, take a look at the latest press photo, which I’ve titled “Uncle Billy Takes Us on a Kung-fu Ride in Space. Also There are Birds.”

Do I need to say going to the show was kind of a mistake? Because it was. Mostly because I haven’t listened to any of the new stuff and I am not a drunk dude from New Jersey.

But here is a picture of Uncle Billy from last night. You should also know that he just started a pro wrestling company.

I’m going with “Bald Eagle.”

maybe it’s because i’m out of touch

But I had to look up what K2-Spice was.

My being old or whatever aside, I still think they could have made a smoother transition in the ad. I mean, it’s a pretty big leap now, right?

My suggestion:

R2-D2 was (um, is?) kid friendly

RJD2 makes the kids dance

R.J. Spice (who exists, I looked it up) means nothing to kids

Scary Spice (not a necessary link but I think it’s appropriate in this case) is kid-scary

K2-Spice is KID DEADLY.

There you have it! Much more logical.

The night the ladies went to the hat store

[4/30, Village Scandal, I dunno, about midnight? Which, by the way, is how late they’re open every night. New York!]

So Rachael Ray had a block party in Brooklyn

Which sounds absurd, I know. It was called “Feedback” and for five hours on Saturday she took over the Bell House and its surroundings and had free food and music on two stages (including her husband’s band The Cringe) and actually, it was pretty fun.

Some bands:

Freelance Whales, Detroit Cobras, Sweet Apple featuring J Mascis, Motel Motel, The Click Clack Boom.

Some food:

Spot the Justine.

Some Sashas and Dans:

I don’t know what they’re doing in the second photo.

And a random Project Runway contestant:

You guys remember that guy Kevin? The one who kept declaring he was straight?

So there was all this stuff, which was great, but if there was one take-away message from Saturday, which was sponsored in huge part by Snapple,  it’s that Bret Michaels knows nothing about what tastes good.


See, for Celebrity Apprentice he created a new Snapple flavor called Trop-A-Rocka (I know).

And I’m not exaggerating when I say this, but it tastes like doo-doo for diabetics. Even adding a crapload of vodka couldn’t save this drink.

How did Trop-A-Rocka win? I didn’t watch the show, but didn’t anyone actually taste it? How bad were the other entries?

Don’t ever buy this stuff. It is decidedly not the best stuff on earth. Consider this a public service announcement.
