Adam and Jeremy Say: Light's On

Swing on over to the 90.9 The Light Website. Sure it's an amature college radio station, but they still play a sweet mix of christian rock, Hip Hop and R&B. Most of you probably don't have a local station with that kind of line up.

Not only that, I'm sure you're getting tired of your Amy Grant and Mercy Me Christmas music from your local "Inspirational" station. For the next few days they will playing "Egg Nogg for the Ears" with all kinds of sweet Christmas Rock mixed in with everything else.

Oh, and if you don't like annoying college kids failing at their attempts to DJs, no worries. Everyone if on winter vacation, so you don't even have to put up with people yakking at you.

Adam and Jeremy Say: Lights Out!

The U.S.News & World Report says the incandescent light bulb, one of the most venerable inventions of its era but deemed too inefficient for our own good, will be phased off the U.S. market beginning in 2012 under the new energy law just approved by Congress.

Apologies to all those who have sentimental feelings towards the "Edison bulb", but it really does make sense to switch over to the fluorescent bulbs. Go ahead and do it now.

Adam and Jeremy say: Lost is nearly hear and on a new night!!! oh and we have a promo!!!

Season Four of Lost hits January 31st... which you may notice is a Thursday night... that's because ABC is moving Lost to the 9PM slot on Thursdays until the strike is over and Grey's Anatomy can refill its old digs... of course with only eight episodes in the can season for could be really short if these greedy Hollywood jerks don't get their acts together.

Adam and Jeremy Say: We Did It Again; I Am Legend No. 1!

We did it again... Will Smith and his gripping exciting sci-fi thriller I Am Legend soared to a best ever record December box office; raking in $76.5 Million! It must be said that about fifty million dollars of that was generated directly from Adam and Jeremy Buzz... don't thank us Will just send money.

Adam and Jeremy Say: GI Joe turns 25 and celbrates with oddly funny online game

We are not sure how we missed this, but G.I. Joe turned 25 years old this year! What great childhood memories... at any rate you can go to their website and play their online game that pits G.I. Joe action figures against Cobra action figures in a Family Feud battle to test your knowledge of G.I. Joe... We are not sure if they intended for the stop motion animation of action figures to be as funny as it is, but intentional or not it is guaranteed to crack a nostalgic smile on your face.

Adam and Jeremy Say:O the Orony

As you are all probably aware by now, Oprah has made claim that she is supporting Obama in the 2008 election. I won't go deep into my feelings for Oprah right now, but to sumarize you could say that I'm not a big fan. So, with that being said, you could say that my feeling towards Obama has also declined over the past couple days.

I do find it interesting that Oprah, with all her sheman power trips, is decidnig to support the black canidate over the female candidate. That must have been a hard decision for her. I did get a small chuckle when Good Morning America refered to her as the "most influential female in America".
On a far side note and off the subject, see the letter to Oprah below written by Orson Scott Card:
Dear Oprah:
You are a superb talkshow host. Millions of people watch you to get your level-headed take on all the problems of life. We admire you, we enjoy you, and we're even happy that you are the richest woman in the world. It couldn't happen to a nicer person.

I'm so terribly sorry that when you arrived fifteen minutes after closing time at the Paris Hermes store, they did not let you dash in and buy a watch for a friend.
I'm not even jealous of your friend -- I don't want the kind of watch Hermes sells, because then I'd always be worried about losing it or somebody stealing it. But I'm glad you're generous with your friends.

And it's so inconvenient when people close up their stores just when you finally have a moment to shop.

It happens to me all the time.

If they were rude to you at the door -- well, I remember when I was in Provence a few years ago. I commented to one of my French acquaintances -- in English, of course, since my French would make even schoolboys ashamed -- "I always heard how cold and rude French store clerks are, and yet everyone here has been kind and helpful and friendly."
"Ah," said the man, "you were thinking of Paris. They treat us that way, too."

Dear, dear Oprah, there are so many possible reasons why you were turned away from the door at Hermes.
1. The store clerk was Parisian. They train their clerks to be aloof and rude. The clerk would have been fired for treating you any other way. Where did you think you were, Des Moines?
2. You're American. Do you have any idea how happy it makes people these days to say no to an American?
3. You're very, very rich. Do you have any idea how happy it makes people to have a chance to force a rich person to realize they're no better than anyone else?
4. You're used to people saying yes to you just because you are who you are. But in Paris, they don't watch your show. So in Paris, you're not "Oprah," you're just another customer, and since all their customers are rich, they don't automatically understand that even when there are no exceptions, there must be an exception for you.
5. The store was closed! People who own stores have a right to close them, as long as they announce it in advance. You arrived after the announced closing time. Have you so lost touch with what it means to be a human being that you really expect everyone to let you break all the rules?
6. You are also black. And it's conceivable that maybe that particular Parisian store clerk didn't want you in the store fifteen minutes after closing because of some deep bigotry against Africans.
But the fact that you are black is way, way down the list of plausible reasons for your exclusion from the store.
In fact, for you to bring your race up and try to use that as a cudgel to punish Hermes for not giving you treatment that no white person would have gotten cheapens the genuine suffering of ordinary black people in this difficult world.
Oprah, you are the richest woman in the world precisely because white people do not discriminate against you. They watch your show. They take your advice. They buy the books you recommend. They even watch Dr. Phil because you told them he was smart.
There are black people who face discrimination all the time, but Oprah, you are not one of them.
And you should be ashamed of pretending to suffer what they suffer, when in fact all you got was exactly the treatment that most of us get all the time, regardless of our race.
You should have stopped in front of that closed door, laughed a little, and said to yourself, "Oprah, old girl, this store clerk has helped you, and just in time, too! You were actually starting to believe you deserved special treatment. Welcome back to planet Earth, Oprah! You've been gone too long."

Adam and Jeremy Say: At What Point Does An Award Become Worthless?

In 1929, the NBR was the first group to choose the ten best English-language movies of the year and the best foreign films, and is still the first critical body to announce its annual awards... Well well well then The National Board of Review of Motion Pictures best of list for 2007 must be really really good or at least really really early... Whatever here's the link... but if you are to busy for silly things like reading here is a brief rundown... No Country for Old Men best film, Tim Burtton best director, George Clooney best actor (you could probably guess that is an award for Michale Clayton and not Oceans 13) and Julie Christie best actress (Yeah we don't know who she is either.)

Adam Says: Why Work When You Can Just Hide.

Why do I work? Is it for the money or is it something else? I think its for the money. Why do I work for money? Is it for happiness or is it for comfort? It is silly to think that I would work so hard to make myself happy. Some of the happiest moments of my life have come at times when I was poor... or have cost very little... I was happy when I bought a huge truck for $1000 and then beat the living tar out of it for the next three years... I was happy when I lived over a sewing shop and paid a flat $200 a month for all my expenses; which was good because I only made $7000 that year. I was happy when I spent a month sneaking into my friends apartment pool everyday reading trashy magazines and working a tan. I was happy when I was a junior level go-fer in a big government PR office who spent two hours a day playing basketball with old men. I was happy when I went tagging old rail road tunnels with my future wife. So if so many things that came at so little cost gave me such joy why am I now working so hard to make money? Comfort is the only real answer I have, but that's not really the answer. I say that I want to able to do things I enjoy without worrying about money, and I say that I need to work hard so I can rest for a long time at the end of my life, but in reality its more fear than comfort that drives me... Fear that I wont have money to pay the bills... fear that I will get sick and not have money to go to the doctor... fear that my wife may get pregnant and we wont be able to afford to birth the child... fear that I will have to work the rest of my life... this is not good.

God tells me that His eye is on the sparrow and so if He is taking care of a little bird how much more is he taking care of me? He tells me I am to be fearless, and yet I am worried and afraid. It's not like its a new thing for me to be a giant faithless hypocrite... but some times when you realize how hypocritical you have been and how faithless you are it takes you back a few steps. I regret that these past few months I have spent so much time afraid and hiding. I feel as if there has been so much joy around me and I have tried to keep it out. I only let it small doses from time to time... at a family dinner, on a date with my wife, talking to a friend, and better yet talking to God. It's funny how God listens to people he knows are complete fakes and frauds and losers and quitters and sinners. If I even think someone may be lying to me I shun them (i.e. Mitt Romney and Joel Olsteen.) God on the other hand still hears me still loves me and even still talks to me... yeah I know that's crazy evangelical talk and you can discount it if you want, but that's the faith I have and its the faith I want to live.

So my wish this Christmas is not for a new toy, and its not for a new job; because I know that neither will make me happy. Is for Peace, Joy and Courage. In the book of Luke when the Angels appear to the shepherds God says that the angles told the Sheppards to not be afraid, but instead to be joyful because they brought good news... the Savior had been born and he would finally bring peace to earth.
8And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch
over their flocks at night. 9An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the
glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. 10But the angel
said to them, "Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy that will be
for all the people. 11Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you;
he is Christ[
the Lord. 12This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths
and lying in a manger."
13Suddenly a great company of the heavenly
host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying, 14"Glory to God in
the highest, and on earth peace to men on
whom his favor rests."

I know it's a little cliche to talk about the Christmas story at this time of year. Jeremy and I try to stay away from crusty old religious practices, but the truth is that God has come to bring Peace, Joy and Courage... even to worried cowards like me. So I hope that I can fully accept that peace and courage and experience the full joy of Salvation with Jesus.

I realize this all deviates from the norm for Adam and Jeremy, and I also realize that I just took a very long journey from discontent in the office to Salvation on the Cross, but thanks for reading it, and hope you also have a Merry Christmas.

Adam and Jeremy Say: Hapy Birthday Bra!

Who would have know? It's the bra's 100th birthday... read all about it and even get a brief history from this USA Today story: Bra has held up famously for 100 years.
We must say the bra has aged well, but we really can't say the same for the "car bra."

Adam says: Blockbuster and I are so not together anymore.

So tonight I had this completely unnerving experience at the Westoverhills Blockbuster... needless to say I am no longer a Blockbuster customer, to let you fully understand the situation I figure I should post the complaint email I sent to Blockbuster corporate... and yes I know I may sound a little irrational, but seriously I was ticked... on with the show.

I am a FORMER Blockbuster online customer who really enjoyed the first few months of service I received. The mail service was quick and the in store exchanges were a big plus over Netflix. However, two months ago I was told by the folks at my local Blockbuster (Westoverhills Blockbuster in Richmond VA) that I was limited to three exchanges per month. It seemed that they could not confirm if this was three movies or three trips to exchange (with the possibility of exchanging six movies since I was on the two movie plan.) This was unsettling but I figured it was just one of those things that big companies do to try and make more money for their executives at the expense of the consumer. All of this probably would not have caused me to cancel my subscription, but tonight I ran into the straw that broke the camels back. While going to the Westoverhills Blockbuster in Richmond VA on Forest Hill Ave I ran into Larry. I don't know what Larry's position is at this particular Blockbuster but I do know that Larry is a total jerk with a real attitude. When I stepped up to the counter to exchange my movie for another movie (Rescue Dawn starring Christian Bale) I was being attended to by a nice lady whom I have had the pleasure of dealing with several times at this Blockbuster, until... Larry screamed at her from across the store to come to another counter and "do this." When the woman who was waiting on me turned to emphasize the fact that she was waiting on a customer at that moment Larry yelled back that she needed to come there now and he would wait on me; I should add that at no point was Larry polite in this conversation, rather he seemed to make it a point to be as curt and generally mean as possible. Thought taken aback by this exchange I was not daunted in my mission to exchange my movie. Larry started our exchange in a semi courteous manner; asking how I was doing as he scanned my card. Then he asked me "Did you return something?" To which I said yes. He then went huffing over to the return box to retrieve the two movies I had dropped in as I entered the store, and on returning he gave me a metaphorical finger wag as he told me that I MUST bring the movies to the counter if they are late. The fact that I did not know this was inconsequential to Larry... he was more interested in saving a ten foot trip from the computer to the drop box and back. I may have been able to brush aside this slight but things continued to get worse. Larry then began to quiz me about my name address and phone number; something that had never happened in the year I had visited this store. I assume he wanted to make sure the person giving him a nine year old Blockbuster card was the person who was on the account that card represented, but I would have no clue, all I know is his skills as an interrogator are rather crude. At this point he began scanning the video I was exchanging, and then he stopped abruptly to tell me that I did not have a credit card on my account to secure it. I have no idea what that means. The online service debts my debt card every month and I have never had a problem before this renting movies at any Blockbuster, but for some reason I need to have a credit card to secure my account tonight. When I asked Larry to clarify his declaration that MY problem was that I did not have credit card on my account, all he could tell me was that I need a credit card to secure my account while he shook his head. This was all I could take. I do not know who Larry is (all his name badge said was "Larry") but I do know that Larry has cost Blockbuster my business. I need not remind you that I am the one paying you for a service, and I don't need to put up with such abuse. At this point I told Larry to check in my video and forget the exchange, because it seemed way to complicated for Larry to accomplish that part of my original task. Larry gave me a sarcastic "OKAY" in response and then as I left I told him I would be switching to Netflix and all Larry could say was "Whatever."
This has to be one of the worst customer service experiences I have ever had. If Larry would have dropped the attitude to explain the issue with my account I may have been willing to resolve it, but instead he berated me in front of the other customers in the store. Now he may have been right. Blockbuster may have some policy about securing accounts with credit cards, and if it does I think that is completely lame, but thats not the point, I am not upset about the policy I am upset about the way Larry treated me when all I wanted to do was use the service I pay for every month. I sincerely hope that this villain will be dealt with appropriately by Blockbuster management. I would give you Larry's last name and title, but that was not printed on his name tag so all I can tell you is that Larry is the short, goofy looking, pudgy, balding white man, with a mustache and feminine voice that works at the Westoverhills Blockbuster on Foresthill Ave in Richmond Virginia. Thank you for addressing this issue, and I am sorry that I cannot continue my relationship with your company.

I think it gets the point across...

Adam and Jeremy Say: It's getting to the point where

Jeremy: are you familiar with any old school Jackson 5? i heard they're rendition of "santa claus is comnig to town" on the radio, and i am arguing that it has the earliest hint of hip hop that ive ever heard. michael is talking fast and rhyming along with his brothers, and during that part of the song they are playing a simple bump, bump, ting drum beat.

Adam:You may have a point as far as the mainstream pop radio music is concerned. I am sure you could find other examples that would be way out there, and I am sure there are underground type examples but honestly I cannot think of a pop music example that predates that.

Jeremy:yeah good point, because i have no idea what was on the underground in the 70s...much less the 60s. the jackson 5 really were pop, huh? i didnt tell you that i work with a guy in his early 50s and he played drums for some bands back in the 60s. nobody big, but he was educating me on the british invasion and introduced me to bands like the hollies, the kinks, the animals, etc. pretty interesting stuff.

Adam: yeah the kinks were punk/ metal before those forms of music existed and I really don't get the animals.... have you seen the British invasion cd at bestbuy?

Jeremy: nah.....but jim(the guy i work with) brought in a book called the "the fab british RR invasion of 64". he also has a tape of all this old stuff with performances on ed sullivan and random "music videos" and stuff .its crazy. i thought our generation was weird, man just the clothes they had was wacked. then i got to thinking and i was kinda mad that us americans cant really take credit for much of the rock influence, so i was trying to think of american bands and the only ones i could come up with were :the ramones, bob dylan, the beach boys, and a few others. needless to say, i was disappointed that america couldnt take more credit for inventing R&R....but then again we had elvis and chuck berry.

Adam: Well we definitely have Elvis, and Aerosmith and the Doors and Hendrix and Joplin Plus every jazz and blues legend was American and then there was james brown, chuck berry, Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Johnny Cash, Hank Williams and the list goes on don't forget we have a lock on the soul r&b funk and hip hop categories so anyone whose influence stems from there is indebted to American artists

Jeremy: hmm...good call. i love rock though, and i can take pride in our R&B/hip hop/jazz credit, but i just wish we had more rock. good call on hendrix and aerosmith, etc....oo what about queen? i suppose you could say we own the market on country and folk legends as well?

Adam: This is why I discredit the Beatles! I mean honestly Rock is just a mash of Americas Music

Jeremy: yeah...can we credit the beatles with influencing pop music and pop culture, but not rock music? the thing is...ask rockers today, and they usually will credit the beatles with influencing their music wont they?

Adam: I never understood that, but then again I never got the beach boys either and everyone thinks they are amazing! I really do think the Beatles have more to do with pop music than rock. I don't know do you hear the influence of the Beatles in SUM 41 because they (like many bands) claim that the Beatles are a huge influence? You know what I know a guy who is all about classic rock in a "how it was done" not just what happend/how it sounded kind of way I could ask him what the deal is. Did the Beatles invent a way of playing music. Because everything I consider Rock now sounds more like Zepplin and the Ramones and Nirvana and at the very least the Rolling Stones and nothing like the beatles... to me the Beatles sound like an upbeat barber shop quartet! and so do the beachboys! Its not like they invented four part harmony! and as far as their instrument playing it was all really white! there were many musicians at the time who were playing stuff twenty times more complicated and difficult! Well lets try an experiment! Project 86 = Rage = Nirvana/NWA =Guns N Roses/ Grandmaster Flash = Sexpistols/ramones/clash/miles "mother fu**ing" Davis/Queen/Led Zepplin = Hendrix/Rolling Stones/Kinks/Smiths = Muddy Waters/BB king/beach boys/beatles = ELVIS!

Jeremy: i like the beach boys because they are fun and yes, they do the the 4 part harmony very well, which i also like. i guess they were really good lookin and playing music people had never really heard at that point. rock, plus a fun melody to sing along with. modern day blink 182. dont the stones claim themselves to be blues? thats what i heard atleast. i like your little equation for rock. ive never thought about the influence that nirvana had on rage...or really any other band for that thing i do appreciate about the beatles, is their ability to write a variety of music. i.e. not all their songs a cut beat with a GCDC chord progression with a bridge featuring Em. I like how they have fast and slow songs; rock and folk songs. sound variety was always something big with my dad, and i suppose he has passed the importance to me. right now im streaming eric clapton and b.b. king. its pretty wicked.

Adam: Yeah I think thats a personality flaw on my part... One: While my interests in music vary pretty widely my tastes are pretty narrow. Two: When I start groovin’ on a band, I get into a stage where thats all I want to listen to... i.e. I'll listen to Blindside for a week and rap for a day and I'll buy three folk albums in a row. Still I think the flaw in rock music is its simplicity, I think if you can make complicated music that sounds rich and easy at the same time, that is when you would create great music!

Adam and Jeremy Say: Life; Yeah It's Real

I have come across a new emotion... Home Owner Melancholy. What is this emotion you ask? It is the blah attitude created from the inane repetition of home chores combined with the actual financial burden of home ownership. I am not just talking about the mortgage payment... I am talking about insurance, furniture, paint, lawn care, trash cans, Internet access, and the rest. It ain't cheap... in fact when I think about it... its crazy! Sure they tell me its a great investment, but guess what when your life is over that investment isn't worth a thing to you... so I am sure that my current state of melancholy is deeper seeded than just the pressing needs of my house, but for now that is what I am blaming it on... and for now my advice... Don't ever buy a house... don't even rent... just sleep on your friends couches until your forty, and then figure it out from there.

Frank TV promos - Frank Caliendo's TV show - Starts Nov 20

Here are some promo clips for a new show that premiered this past week on TBS. I honestly was a little curiuos, but not really planning on watching because it comes on at 11pm, but he happened to be on Mike and Mike in the morning that same day, and he was hilarious.
So I tuned in and the show was also good, but I think he may just be funnier by himself going from impression to impression.
Anywho, see for yourself.
Nevertheless, I still plan on tuning in.

Adam and Jeremy Say: Sports Update!

So I was scrolling through the channels yesterday afternoon to see which NFL games were being carried in our area, and stumbled across the MLS 2007 Cup. That's right, even though Adam and Jeremy are big soccer fans, even I did not know the championship was being aired yesterday. I knew they were in the playoffs, but....oh well, shows how much we care about the MLS. Anywho, The Houston Dynamo repeated this year beating the same new England Revolution to win the league. It was actually fairly exciting from the last 10 minutes that I saw.

In other sports news, Jimmy Johnson also repeated as the NASCAR Nextel series winner. That's about all I have to say about that.
check out for more info
Oh, and the U.S. mens soccer team beat South Africa over the weekend. There are signs for hope that our 2008 Olympic performance will be better than our 2006 World Cup performance.

Adam and Jeremy Say: I'll bear your gryll

The Discovery Channel announced that our favorite survivor specialist Mr. Bear Grylls is coming back for all new episodes of Man vs. Wild.

Despite the recent controversy surrounding the show, we are no doubt thrilled for his return and him showing us some of the craziest things a person can do to survive in the wilderness.

Here is what Discovery had to say:
"What do you do when facing a desert storm; you need to find shelter to escape probable death in 110-degree heat? How do you avoid some of the world's largest saltwater crocodiles in a Panamanian mangrove swamp? How do you navigate your way across the treacherous Patagonian ice fields, where one false step can pitch you into a deep crevasse? These are some of the deadly scenarios faced by adventurist Bear Grylls in the new season of Man vs. Wild.From the darkest jungles of Panama and the scorching sands of the Sahara to the treacherous rapids of the Amazon River the series follows him as he and his intrepid camera crew face some of the most extreme challenges in the most severe environments on earth. This is a series of tough challenging environments where having the right skills and knowledge can mean the difference between life and death."

Adam and Jeremy Say:We can't get enough D Webb

So all of you know that Derek Webb played a show this past Tues here in Asheville at the Grey Eagle. Well, it was nothing short of a really awesome(flash back to the 90s) time.

His wife Sandra McCracken opened the stage, and beyond her spectacular musical talent and good looks, her stage presence and cute personality set the mood for a great show. Derek also played amazing and his set was everything to be expected.

Beyond all that he announced some pretty interesting news from the stage in that a song off his new record The Ringing Bell will be featured on Grey's Anatomy tonight.

He mentioned ironically that the song '"Name" will probably play right after someone is having sex, during someone having sex, or immediately after someone having sex".

Never the less, he played it down that he although he will never actually have a "hit", this will be as close as it gets.

I've never been a huge fan of Grey's, but since 50% of my household can't miss an episode, I inevitably end up watching it, and I have always enjoyed the soundtrack. Now I will enjoy it even more.

Adam Says: I Have a Crush on Louis Stevens... Wait I Mean Alex Mac... Oh Great.

Louis Stevens drunk and disorderly? There is a shocker. Whats next Ren Stevens caught during a B&E? Go here to see the mug shot and read the whole story about Shia LeBeouf getting arrested for not leaving a Walgreens...

On a side note while researching Even Stevens I accidentally reignited a memory I probably long should have forgotten. Most of you don't remember the Secret World of Alex Mac, and rightly so but if you want to look it up on IMDb or Wiki it was on in the mid-nineties. However, most of you probably remember 10 Things I Hate About You, well Bianca in that movie is played by Larisa Oleynik who also happened to play Alex in the Secret World of Alex Mac... the point being when I was a Freshman in highschool I had a huge crush on Alex Mac... but until Shia LeBeouf got arrested for being drunk in a Walgreens causing me to look up info on his Nick tv show which in turn linked me to an article about the Secret World of Alex Mac I had completely forgot about my crush on Alex... and now that I am reminded... well it really doesn't seem like such a big deal.

Adam and Jeremy Say: Random Observation

In my experience the number one thing people say after using the restroom is:

"So I was just thinking..."

closely followed by:

"Listen to what I just read..."

Adam a Jeremy Say: Geek Alert

Take a look at the stars tonight to see the "once in a lifetime event".

The comet 17P/Holmes is apparently exploding and can seen more easily than usual.

Here is what the AP says about it:

"The comet is exploding and its coma, a cloud of gas and dust illuminated by the sun, has grown to be bigger than the planet Jupiter. The comet lacks the tail usually associated with such celestial bodies but can be seen in the northern sky, in the constellation Perseus, as a fuzzy spot of light about as bright as the stars in the Big Dipper.
'This is truly a celestial surprise,' Paul Lewis(director of astronomy outreach at the University of Tennessee) said. 'Absolutely amazing.'
Until Oct. 23, the comet had been visible to modern astronomers only with a telescope, but that night it suddenly erupted and expanded."

Adam and Jeremy Say: Darfur Now trailer

This movie came out in theaters this past weak. I don't know how much of a realistic view it gives to the situation, but it's media attention none the less, and we need to pay attention.
If yor prefer going to a concert over sitting in a theater, go to one of the "Rock for Darfur" shows around the country on Nov 10th. For those in Asheville, Colbie Cailat will be playing at The Orange Peel as part of this international the event

Adam and Jeremy Say: This List Should Get You Caught Up

The Richmond branch has been wasting way too much time with work and has not been spending enough time roaming the World Wide Web looking for nuggets to give you kiddies... we are sorry and plan to make it up to you with this numbered list of things you should care about.

1. The Office = Funny.

2. Doggy Birthday parties may sound like F-U-N, but a large group of adults standing around and watching a twelve pound dog eat a peanut butter cake is probably the scariest commentary I could ever make on our culture.

3. I bought the new Dashboard Confessional album (The Shade of Poison Trees)... you should as well.

4. I know Halloween has passed but this Christopher Walken mask is still the coolest thing ever.

5. The first "Best Albums of 2007" list has been made, and we do not approve.

6. Cake is coming to Richmond December 9... you may have to pawn your Wii to pay for the $30 tickets, but it will be sooo worth it... trust us.

7. I am stoked about the new Batman movie and this website is one of two reasons why (the other is Christian Bale of course.)

8. These are the best Christian albums ever? We think not... in fact that is really just obnoxious.

9. Turn the clocks back this weekend... just a friendly public service announcement.

10. Medieval Total War is like crack, but with out the paranoia and loss of appetite.

That should fix you up for now... later I may post about Children's Health Care or the Hypocrisy of Radical Right Wing Radio Host...

Adam and Jeremy Say: Not your typical "worship" cd

If you revel in the likes of Chris Tomlin and David Crowder Band, you may not have heard of an equally transparent and less trendy group called The Glorious Unseen.
I am currently streaming their new album, and it's knocking my socks off. Swing over to their ecard and take a listen.
In the meantime, here is what some other people had to say about it:
"one of the only worship bands I actually like"-Tim McTague(Underoath)
"this sounds amazing...I have always loved what Ben is doing"-Joshua Scogin (The Chariot)
"TGU is the best worship record I have ever heard"-Jimmy Ryan (Haste the Day/Trenches)
"Ben has a real nice voice....I'de prefer to listen to him sing those songs out on the street, though"-Aaron Weiss(mewithoutyou)

Adam and Jeremy Say:Thursday Nights are back!....kinda

So the new and final season of scrubs started last night, and although this means The Office will only have time for 30 minutes episodes now, we are rejoicing that they(NBC) are back to their full Thursday Night line-up.
The bad news is, Jeremy missed the entire episode. The good news is, Jeremy have Charter DVR, and it's safely stored on the the cable box hard drive.
I was going to use this post to give my thoughts on the season premier, but alas it will have to wait. I was too busy gettin' down on my b-day, and plus the air force academy game was on tv, which never happens.
In the meantime, swing on over to the Scrubs website and watch the featured video by creator Bill Lawrence. You could possibly have an impact on how the series will come to an end.

Adam and Jeremy Say:Calling all Uglies!

According to a recent survey from, the most unattractive people in the United States can be found in Phily. Not only are they said to be ugly, but they are also voted "least stylish, least active, least friendly, and least worldly". Not really sure what the "least worldly" means?
Some runner-up cities include:Washington DC and Dallas/Fort Worth while the cities with the most attractive people are San Diego and Miami. No surprise there.

Adam and Jeremy don't personally know that many people from Phily, but the ones that we do are actually fairly good looking, and nice people.

Adam and Jeremy: Next Sharks Will Be Eating People In Pools!

Shark alert: It's not safe to go in the water at the Indy 300
By DENNIS PASSA, AP Sports Writer

October 18, 2007

SURFERS PARADISE, Australia (AP) -- Over-exuberant fans at the Indy 300 have been urged not to cool off by jumping into the river that runs through the Surfers Paradise street course because it's full of aggressive bull sharks.

On Friday, race officials said extra security boats have been employed to keep revelers out of the waterways, fearing a shark attack at the prime feeding times of dusk and dawn. Fans arriving by boat and jet skis were urged to stay out of the water

The Nerang River and many of its canals and lakes have been the site of numerous shark attacks. In 2003, two men, including an 84-year-old former athlete, were killed in attacks in Nerang River tributaries, both by bull sharks.
Commentary: That's right sharks in a fresh water river! Sharks! We are all going to die!

Adam and Jeremy: Just Say No to Starbucks Music... Even if its Free.

Hey want free music from Bob Dylan, Dave Mathews, KT Tunstal, Paul McCartney, and John Mayer? Sure you do. Well Starbucks wants to give it to you! Excited? I was... until I realized they want to give it to me one song a day for then next thirty days... So that would not be so bad if I had to go to a website or sign up for an email, but they want me to go to their stores every day for over a month just to get one song... It's never enough is it? They already have half of America addicted to their marginally good over priced lattes and now they want to reel in we music fans offering us one little hit a day like they were drug dealers or something. No seriously I saw this on an episode of Law and Order this is how crack pushers work... one hit at a time until you are completely addicted and then they run the price up on you and shiv you in a dark alley! Needless to say I am going to just say no and ignore this asinine marketing ploy, but it is free music from good artists so here is the web link if you are interested in the details. Starbucks - Song of the Day

Adam and Jeremy Say: Richmond Starts Green Roof Trend...

No seriously the Times Dispatch says we did... just read it for yourself.
It is nice to see that Richmond is at the forefront of this "green" roof movement. Now I wonder if I can plant stuff on my roof... because seriously the only thing that seems to grow on roofs in my neighborhood is satellite dishes.

Adam and Jeremy Say: The Rock Drops Peoples Elbow on Ben Stiller and Movie Experts

Oh man pop culture we love you... we love the way your "experts" act all confused when an R-rated remake of a film falls below expectations and finishes second to a family friendly football/parenting movie... Any WWE fan could have told you that Ben Stiller would not stand a chance getting into the ring with Dwayne Johnson; "if you smell what the Rock is cooking." At any rate its not really the beating Heartbreak Kid took at the hands of The Game Plan over the weekend that has us all giggly, but it is the shocked reaction the "experts" in the media have displayed that has us chuckling... check out this article in USA Today and tell me you don't snicker once or twice.

Adam and Jeremy Say: Ryan Coming Back To The Office Scares US.

The Office is amazing. I loved last nights episode... evil super hardcore Ryan is a great new twist, with a two hundred dollar haircut... Michale drove a car into a lake... "Yeah the map was a bit of a disappointment."... the only downer is the Pam Jim thing... sure it was super exciting to see them get together, but without the tension I think things are not quite as funny... though my boy Toby could throw a wrench into the works... at any rate The Office is officially the funniest show on television and if you missed last nights super sized episode go HERE to watch it online... and if you caught the bit about the new Dunder Mifflin Infinity website at the end then you don't need THIS LINK, but if you didn't you should check it out.... oh and for those of you who saw the episode my favorite line... "Apparently Ryan can't get ANY girl he wants."

Adam and Jeremy Say: the 60min Colbert Report

Tune in to 60 minutes this weekend(yes, I really did say that), so see an exclusive behind the scenes look at The Colbert Report. Correspondent Morley Safer will take us through how "The Colbert Report" is created, and I'm sure the actual interview with Colbert will not disappoint. If Safer can torment him as much as Colbert does the guests on his show, I will be greatly impressed.

Adam and Jeremy Say: Seiously The Leg Thing Is Funny... Just Watch The Video.

There is video of one of the men from that bizarre story about the dispute of the human leg that we reported yesterday... and you won't believe how funny it is... ironically... my favorite part... "I've never traded for human body parts before. I trade for a shrunken head once, but this is different." Seriously just click this link and watch it... and then die laughing.

Adam and Jeremy Say: Take Time To Stop And Smell The Black Roses With Blindside

Blindside has a new EP out titled "Black Rose." It is only available as a download, and it is only available from this site... not THIS site but the site we just linked... the first link not the second... argh! Everyone's favorite Swedes are also doing a short US tour to support the EP so look for them to come to your town... if you town is Atlanta, Nashvegas, or Los Angeles.
