There's only one everything

Almost…finished…clearing out my boss' flat.

Jon: You think I can cancel your cable service for you?
Pep: Why not? You pose as me and sign my signature all the time.
Jon: Yes, but, won't they check identification?

Jon: Hey, did you read the surrender agreement? "Walls must be painted back to original colour"?!

Jon: Will they deduct from the security deposit for leaving the shower curtain? I've never moved to this extent before.
B: Jon, people your age are raising families.


Purgatory Chasm

Game Show Idea: A variation on The Price Is Right with phone number games instead of pricing games. You win stuff based on how well you know the phone numbers of contacts in your phone.

"All these digits are one away from the digits in your co-worker Tom's phone number."
"Gentleman, do I have seven digits correct?"

Pathfinder on a nine-by-nine grid.

For Plinko chips: "Scott Rothman's area code: Starts with a 4 or ends with a 0?"


So a white person unconscionably kills a black person. Punish said white person by dyeing his or her skin black — John Howard Griffin, but permanent. No prison time or death penalty, just irrevocably alter his or her appearance. #jonjustice


Rory: WWF : WCW :: Mad: Cracked.
Jon: But Cracked never rivaled Mad like WCW rivaled WWF.

Jon: Extending the analogy, John Severin is Hulk Hogan, and Don Martin is Bret Hart.
Rory: Duck Edwing is Shawn Michaels?

Suplex. Repeat.

Greatest Ever! Definitive! Alien Ant Farm?!

Of those 19 songs, only "The Best of Me" really fits the bill.

How do you not go with "Dammit" and "Fat Lip"?

What is this I don't even…

[pause]

"'What I Go to School For' by Busted."
"The Lemonheads' cover of 'Mrs. Robinson.'"
"'Blurry' by Puddle of Mudd."

Hüsker Dü couldn't have been on this disc?

It's like the record company just shuffled through the music libraries of its three "punk-est" employees.


Red Sucker Mouth

It's my last week living in New York City, probably ever.

"How I spent much of my early 30s in New York City, crashing at my boss' flat, using a hoodie as a blanket."

Pep's landlord has been showing his flat to prospective tenants. I chuckle to myself every time I hear one say, "It's spacious."

James Bond Jr. chases S.C.U.M. around the world


Groot IMs "I am Groot."

Sketch Idea: Guardians of the Galaxy 90210. David Silver as Star-Lord. Thanos' daughter Donna. Steve Sanders as Groot. All he says is "I-an Ziering."

Joe E. Tata voices Rocket Raccoon.

Sketch Idea: The Golden Girls, but with four once-controversial rappers.

MLB Idea: Every extra inning, players on the fielding team shift a position. So in the 10th inning, the 9 position (right fielder) becomes the 1 (pitcher), and the pitcher becomes the 2 (catcher), et cetera.

Carrington Breckenridge

Buckcherry, have announced plans to release a new EP, titled FUCK, on August 19th via their own label, F-Bomb Records.

Members of Buckcherry, you are in your 40s.

The band might as well rename itself Fuckcherry.

Buckfieri: Triple F!

Never a band to play by the rules, Buckcherry has made a career out of pushing the boundaries and buttons of conventional rock music. Whether it's a song audaciously celebrating the finest white flake ("Lit Up"), an homage to unstable and irresistible young ladies ("Crazy Bitch") or an apologetic ballad ("Sorry")…

Rock music about drugs and women – how scandalously avant-garde. Marcel Duchamp would be proud.

FUCK unapologetically rattles the speakers as much as it will the censors.

The titles of the songs on Fuck all contain the word "fuck," because of course they do.

"6. Fist Fuck"?

The record features six balls-to-the-wall tracks that erupt with gritty riffs and sharp-tongued lyrics, including the upcoming radio single and riotous cover of Icona Pop's hit song "I Love It," which the band naturally cranks to 11 and renames "Say Fuck It."

[pause]

Way to rattle censors by cleaning up a song for radio. I L it.

Rory: "Fist Fuck" is a cover of "Tik Tok" by Ke$ha.
