Liberals treat dogs like people, Conservatives treat people like dogs

Friday Fives



1. What is your favorite local website? What makes it so good?

9news It is where I go to find out everything happening locally, newswise. For some reason, I have always held local NBC news higher than all the others, and it was the same in Phoenix. The site is prompt, well set up, and succinct. I mean, go ahead and look at another local resource, like Denver Post. It is way too busy, and you can only see one story. Visually, it is a car crash. However, when you look at 9news.com, every single story is viewable on the main page. Each story comes with a picture and a mini synopsis. Plus, I am quite smitten with their weather gal.

2. What do you remember about your childhood before you began school.

So we are talking 0-5? Very little, but all happy. Everything was great. Two big brothers, a big house with a yard, dogs, loving parents. My childhood was perfect. I can tell you what I guess would be my earliest memory... the first day of Kindergarden. I think I was 5. My mom took me and I was totally terrified. I thought everyone would be mean to me and they would give me homework. I didn't even know what homework was, but my older brothers assured me it was akin to death and I would get extra helpins of it. In fact, my brothers probably told me I would get breat up daily, or something like that. It wasn't malicious, this is just what older brothers do. So yeah, Kindergarden totally freaked my shit out. Of course it turned out fine, but that was one tramatic morning.

3. List the order in which you would rather: Date, Marry, Screw, Play Ping Pong Against, or Create a Revolutionary Movement with?
Jerome Bettis, Molly Ringwald, George Stephanopoulos, Menudo, Tiger Woods


I would fer sure screw Molly Ringwald, even though I haven't seen her in 20 years. The breakfast club is a part of my generations' psyche. The other offers I don't much care about. Know what? All those people are short, Roy. What are you trying to say? Maybe because I am short I can only have deranged fantasy sex and imaginary military coups with other short people? God, you are such a biggot.

4. What are the first five songs that come up on your mp3 player when you hit random shuffle.

Luckily, the trusty ole iPod is right here getting docked with new tunes. Let's see. Full random generates 4,718 songs. In full random you get:

1. Savior - Red Hot Chili Peppers
2. I Want You - Bob Dylan
3. Yellow Ledbetter - Pearl Jam
4. I think I see the light - Cat Stevens
5. Attics of my life - Grateful Dead

I'd say that is a very good representation of my music likes. I must confess I have no idea what that Chili Peppers song is, though.

5. If you could hang a motto in every home, what would that motto be?

Very simple. Perhaps the greatest words ever spoken. It is a movie quote from George Carlin's character Rufus in 'Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure'. Honestly, you may put this on my grave, and I would be proud to be remembered by this thought:

Be Excellent To Each Other

I loved Yellow Ledbetter til I read the lyrics and found out that the song isn't about anything- this makes it one of the ultimate Frank Black "no one gives a shit about the lyrics" songs 'cause when I hear it I think of sitting around with friends doing shit that fuels nostalgia, like a 'bonghits & everything is okay we're all friends here, who's cooking the hotdogs' kind of feeling. Ah whatever, I still love the song.
