Old School Thursday

Since durham (who is STILL too sally to disclose who he roots for) didn’t think much of the masculinity of my last OST I’m going all gangsta this week. We’re going back to a time when white suburban kids learned what it was like to live in the ghetto and deal with the struggles of the oppressed. When a large swath of the upper middle class wanted desperately to know what it was to live the hood life. Continue reading Old School Thursday

Sooo, Halloween is this weekend.  I love Halloween; it’s when seemingly normal, stuffy women everywhere cast off the shackles of everyday insecurity and dress up in outfits such as ‘Sexy Cowgirl’, ‘Sexy Cop’, ‘Sexy Mail Woman’, and ‘Sexy Frankenstein’.  And, it’s a great excuse to drink to excess and eat candy.  Mmmmmm, candy…  So, this week’s OST is Halloween themed.  Hit the jump for a frightfully good time (yeah, I just wrote that).

I was kind of at a loss as to what to write this week.  Next week writes itself but, believe it or not, coming up with something to write about every week isn’t easy.  I sat down at the computer, fired up Pandora, and started to write about my first skateboard.  I got about halfway through the post when I realized that even I wasn’t that interested in it.  That’s generally not the feeling that you want when writing something like this, so I decided to switch topics.  But what to write about?  Then Pandora smacked me in the face with some inspiration.

Old School Thursday: The Triumphant Return…Agian *UPDATED

So, it’s back.  Again.  Champs has had his hands mighty full with RL lately (and I suspect that MLB playoffs may be contributing to his conspicuous absence, but I won’t say anything about that; wait…what?) and I felt that some content was need to lively up yourself.  This week’s OST is all about hip hop.  REAL hip hip.  Just so you new jacks know, this

is most definitely NOT hip hop. In fact, it’s crap. Unholy crap at that. The jump will give you your hip hop fix Continue reading Old School Thursday: The Triumphant Return…Agian *UPDATED

Old School Thursday

I was bored the other night and decided to watch a bad movie to put myself to sleep.  I perused the On Demand list and landed on “Hot Tub Time Machine”.  I figured it couldn’t be worth a damn and should do the trick perfectly.  Dude, I was wrong, wrong, wrong.  This movie is dammit hilarious and I was laughing pretty much nonstop throughout the entire thing.  The movie basically follows three friends who have grown apart.  When one of them has an accident that looks like a botched suicide attempt, the other two decide to take him up to their old high school spring break spot, Kodiak Valley, to try to cheer him up.  From there, through some convoluted movie magic, they are sent back in time via a hot tub to relive a night from 1986.  It sounds stupid, the trailers made it look stupid, and really it was stupid.  But the stupidity was funnier than all get out, too.  And it got me to thinking about this week’s OST post.  Hit the jump and do a little time travelin’ yourselves.

So tonight is the NBA draft.  Most of you know that I’m a pretty big NBA honk, so you can bet that I’ll be glued to ESPN at 7:30 to see John Wall go to the Wizards with the number one pick, find out is anyone is dumb enough to take DeMarcus Cousins and his baggage and immaturity in the first round, discover if Ed Davis really is a lottery pick, and maybe even see the giraffe on roller skates get picked up by a team in desperate need of a big man.  So, in honor of the Association’s draft this week’s OST will recap some of the biggest busts in draft history. Continue reading Old School Thursday

I was watching “The Unit” on Spike TV today and around 7pm the programming switched from an outstanding show to reruns of UFC fights.  I watched some of these watered down fights and it got me to thinking about today’s post.  The product the UFC puts out today is streamlined, flashy, well produced, and slicker than the proverbial goose shite.  And it doesn’t hold a candle to the old school UFC, the UFC I remember watching in the early and mid nineties. Continue reading Old School Thursday

Okay, so fishTacos probably can’t get down with this week’s OST, but that’s okay.  Different strokes for different folks.  It doesn’t mean he is any better or worse than any of the rest of us (except for me, because I’m better than everyone), just that he is in to different stuff.  But, for the most part, I bet the rest of you will seriously dig the blast of old school that I’m bringing.  Hit the jump to decide for yourself.
