marky mark's response!

as it turns out, mark wahlberg himself did not enjoy the SNL skit as much as i did. this is an interview on jimmy kimmel live.

calm down mark, it's all in good fun. he must really talk to animals, and that's why he's so worked up...

say hi to your mother for me, alright?

this post has no real purpose, except to provide you with the video of the most hilarious skit i've seen on saturday night live in some time.

i've been watching for the last three seasons off and on, mostly on for the last two since kristin wiig's emergence. her stuff is the most consistent, with andy samberg's digital shorts a close second - and then every now and then, samberg will bust out a gem like this.

the impression is dead on.

what a disappointment

although i probably shouldn't admit it, i enjoy a bit of celebrity gossip from time to time. i have no idea why, honestly - something about the whole hollywood lifestyle, i guess. in reality, i feel like i really could care less about lindsay lohan's romances, unless she wants to get me involved .. but i just don't know. i'm fascinated. i check wwtdd and/or the superficial daily, if not multiple times a day. (shoot me.)

anyway, with that said, it should come as no surprise that i've been looking forward to my first nyc celebrity sighting .. and this morning, it happened!

any guesses as to who it was?

fucking brooke shields, walking around soho this morning on my way to work. what a disappointment. she's so unfamous that the only thing i can think of with her in it is south park: the movie, in the scene where she says that she 'farted once on the set of blue lagoon', and terrance slaps her in her face. and she didn't even want to be in that.

(the clip sucks, because i don't think you can just go posting movie scenes on youtube. but, yeah.)

just wanted to let you know

that i haven't forgotten about you, i just haven't had anything great to say lately. not that all the other stuff going on this here blog qualifies as particularly 'great', but you catch my drift.

also just wanted to let you know, on a sad note, that the beloved family dog passed away yesterday after a seriously unfortunate accident at home in massachusetts. no need for a detailed explanation.

otto lived an 8-year-long life of english bulldog luxury, consisting mostly of sleep and probably too much hand-fed 'people food' (it's the italian in us).

anybody willing to scratch near his ass was an automatic best friend.
he protected the front door and the top of the stairs - he loved his family, and his family loved him.

RIP otto .. you were a good boy.

reinventing the stop sign

i'm a media person, so not everything discussed in the below video is stuff i deal with on a daily basis. but, through the experiences i have had in the industry so far interacting with account and creative folks .. it's pretty damn funny. - Watch more free videos

the WORLD wide web

i don't read the free papers they hand out at the subway in the morning, but i do glance at other people's over their shoulder. if you're reading this and thinking, 'i HATE when people do that!' - i'm sorry, and i hate it too.

anyway, i digress. this morning's front page headline was 'fear of human crisis in ravaged s. ossetia'. the headline on the very first day of this whole debacle was 'breaking news: russia invades georgia'.

i am not even close to educated enough on the issue at hand between russia and georgia to discuss the actual story - but what i will say is that it seems american media coverage of the happenings at this point has been pro-georgia. this is reinforced when you read today that president bush has warned russia to withdraw troops immediately, or face possible retaliation.

so i was curious as to what started this whole thing in the first place. apparently - and this is just from a conversation with a buddy - georgia is split into two territories, north and south ossetia, and each wants to withdraw from georgia to become a part of russia. there was civil unrest between the two, and russia got involved.

now again, i don't know enough - but that doesn't sound like russia 'invading' georgia to me. an 'invasion' is out of nowhere .. isn't it?

back to the point of this post .. on the WORLD wide web, you can check out BBC for news outside of the states, or any one of numerous other world outlets. so if you're looking for some additional coverage, there are places to look.

and i'm not really saying the US news coverage is biased, or not grounded in truth .. just that the web makes it possible to check other sources.

the internet rules!
