Stone Temple Pilots to Stapling randomly: A Day in the life of…(4/2)

Posted by goldwriting on April 2, 2008

1 – I guess when you bring back one hard rock supergroup, you kinda have to let the other one go. Scott Weiland has been officially let go as the lead singer of Velvet Revolver, which is sad news for fans of the combination band, but Scott is now expected to announce the reunion of Stone Temple Pilots, which is great news if they can get back some of their hard rockin’ sound from their first couple albums. Now the question comes in, who is going to lead the ex-Guns ‘N’ Roses members in the new and improved Velvet Revolver? My first choice = Me! Second choice (one that exists in the real world) = Henry Rollins. That would kick all kinds of ass. [via Starpulse]

2 – Nothing hurts more than when your hometown fans turn on you. Dane Cook was just voted “Unfunniest Comic” in Boston, MA. Look, I get that since he blew up incredibly fast and for a while you couldn’t sneeze in public without getting your germs all over a piece of Dane memorabilia, but I think it’s now “the cool thing” to hate Dane Cook. If everyone really thought he was so unfunny he wouldn’t have been able to sell out Madison Square Garden two nights in a row, a feat unattempted by a stand up comic in more than 25 years. Admittedly I’m not a big fan of his new stuff and I think he’s slid down the totem pole of cleverness since his first amazing album, Harmful If Swallowed, but dubbing him “Unfunniest Comic” is more a show of spite than honest criticism.

3 – Not that we needed yet another rendition of the “I’m F*cking Matt Damon” song, but this one pairing Hillary and Obama together through various soundbites is just clever enough to get posted. Plus, I like the irony of it. Think about it. [via Perez Hilton]

4 – Wargames, the original film that made me want to be a computer hacker. A golden piece of cinema that taught us all to fear computer control and that any problem can be beaten though simple solutions, like Tic-Tac-Toe. So what is the first thought that pops into your head when coming across such a classically important film? SEQUEL!! A direct-to-DVD movie is being produced under the title: Wargames: The Dead Code, which I am sure will have little to nothing to do with the original storyline other than a computer has gone berserk. You could also call this The Terminator, Cyborg, 2001, Martha’s Home Living… [via FilmDrunk]

5 – I want one! I want one! I want one! Who’s coming with me? [via Uncrate]

6 – Toad Freezing Day, a great new family holiday. I can’t wait until next year when I can fly down there and finally wear my SuperToad costume and lead the national parade! [via CNN]

7 – I wonder if this comes in queen size? I also wonder if I could get it custom made, like with an outline image of me breakdancing on the street, right in the middle of a wicked backspin… I guess this design is cool too. [via swissmiss]


8 – It takes a little bit to see this guy’s true genius, but watch the drummer in the back, he’s enjoying this performance on a whole new level from everyone else. [via GorillaMask via Liquid Generation]

9 – Shaving with Absinthe, it gives you smooth skin, or at least hallucinations that your skin is smooth, where in reality you might be actually feeling up the side of a recliner left out on the sidewalk. [via Uncrate]

10 – Office Dare of the Day: Randomly Pair and staple together pieces of paper on a colleague’s desk [Dumb Dares for the Office]
