Sparks Of Insanity By Vinny "Bond" Marini Thursday, November 15, 2007

Psssssssssssssst...yeah you...c'mere.........look to your left...yeah that's right...over there....NOT RIGHT!


OK, better, now ya see that new button over there? The one that says FREE RICE? Well this wonderful idea came to us from the Lady of the Luggage, our sweet friend Anndi...

All y'all must go over and check out her POST TODAY and PUSH THE BUTTON!...

Use your vocabulary skills and feed people today.

Thank you Anndi...

Our friend Layla (aka Barbara) from Writing From the Inside Out, bestowed upon us, this new award...

Be The Blog award

We love getting and giving our bling. We went to the site of the creator of this award, Me & My Drum and this is what it says about the award...

Earlier this year I was tagged with the blogging tip meme in which the tip I offered was “Be the Blog“. That phrase stuck with me because I think that really sums up what a successful blogger does. And what I mean by successful is that they make it their own, stay with it, are interactive with their readers, and just plain have fun.

Since then I’ve been thinking about creating an award of my own, but with so many out there, it’s hard to find a niche that remains untapped for recognition. So I said, “What the heck?”, and decided to shape the phrase into an award called (you guessed it): Be The Blog.

So, with that in mind, we bestow upon the following...the BE THE BLOG AWARD. Now, if you do not like the 'midnight oil' version, there is a pink and a Cabernet version over at Me & My Drum...

Grab your bling kids....and spread the word...

We went on a rant over at Travis' site yesterday over the music selections chosen on the "Dancing With The Stars" program. If you are a regular reader over there, you know Travis has also complained about it this year.

Well this past week, it was just the worst you could imagine.

A Viennese Waltz to the theme from "Harry Potter"???? OH sure, as Travis pointed out, that is some romantic music to choreograph....sheesh

The other sore thumb was a Cha Cha to the ROLLING STONES "Brown Sugar"!.... Are they out of their ever lovin' freakin' mind?????

The rest of the music was also very weird. If you are going to ask someone to dance the jive, why would you not do it to a Big Band Sing song?

This is our first season watching this show, and we have enjoyed it greatly (OK OK, it has much to do with the SHOES, but we still enjoy!)...but we did find our mind wandering...

Would you two please quit it out!

Where were we? OH yeah...with the sucky music selection, we found ourself not enjoying the dancing as much as we should. Hopefully this was a one week situation where they asked a couple of tone-deaf interns to do the selections...

Welcome back to "Make fun of celebrities" on The Couch:

Puff n' Diddy Puff Doody...Well whatever he calls himself
must have reached into his wife's closet for that number

Tara"Gimme a drink & I will flash ya" Reid
in her Nort' Joisey look

Sharon Stone proving that it was not a stunt double

in that scene from "Basic Instinct" and that she is all woman

And from the "You can get 'em from places other than Joe's",
the Timberlake checks out the crawly things on his timbersnake

Stealing one from BeckEye...
(go on, call my attorneys!)

OK Kiddies...this one is for you!

Write your own caption to this next one
and you might get a big 'ole prize from The Couch
(Or you might not...)

We are just feeling real good tonight (had a real nice evening), and smiling and all and this song came up on the i-Tunes shuffle...well, hell...PERFECT...All y'all might think we are crazy, but this song makes us want to get up and dance....

From the brilliant At The Fillmore East...yup...ALLMAN BROTHERS...

The back and forth between Greg's vocals and Duane's slide guitar is just incredible.

Originally recorded by Blind Willie McTell, and Duane taught himself to play slide guitar by practicing it over and over after hearing the Taj Mahal version.

Butch Trucks and Jai Johanny "Jaimoe" Johanson, the two drummers lay down a pounding blues beat while Berry Oakley completes the hot rhythm section.

This is also the song the band played at Duane's funeral with Dickie Betts taking over the slide part from that point on....

    J. Lo and Christina Aguilera continue to deny baby rumors, while Pauly Shore confirms that he's expecting twins.

    One should probably keep that kind of intense concentration on one's nether regions to a private room.

  40. Tug Says:
