Some More Ways To Enhance Your Life (i.e. Waste Time)

Let's start with the bizarro first, shall we. Shyboy Tim just stumbled upon this clip, and I have to admit that it is not the first clip of Dolph Lundgren recently being amazing that I have seen in the past week. In fact, I am willing to bet a comeback is in store for him along the likes of Neil Patrick Harris. That's right kids, you heard it hear first.



How on earth do you top something that amazing? Simple, follow this link to a collection of panoramas of classic European power plants. I looked at these in a public place and soon found myself surrounded by complete strangers wanting to have a look.


LOOK HERE FOR FOR YOUR LINK TO CLASSIC POWER STATIONS in PANORAMAVISION

And to top it all of, some mustard ontop of a ketchup cake for you!! Some amazing favorite moments from Extras written, directed, and starring Ricky Gervais and recent Winter Storm Stephen Merchant. The first clip features Sir Ian McKellan:



And last but not least, David Bowie's cameo on Extras. Utterly Brilliant!!!!!



Mission Accomplished, Time Wasted

WHAT I FOUND ON MY BREAK

ABC doesn't download the new Lost Episode until later today, so I had some time to do some random searches on the on-lines. Here are three videos I came across that are worthy of sharing with the group.

The first is a link to early rehearsal footage of Prince in 1984. I first saw this yesterday at The City Pages Blotter, but now that Boing Boing has picked it up, it may not be long for this world (wide web). See it while you can!!




This next link is amazing!! It is an amazingly rare look at a sea creature seldom seen, unless it is dead and washed up on shore. It is called an Oarfish, and they are on average 56 feet long!! In fact when the divers first filmed it they thought it was a pylon from an oil ship. It is as bizarre as it is long, and is nothing I would want to come across while out for a swim!!



And to end on a happy crazy note, as one is want to do, here is the new trailer for season 5 of the Tim And Eric Awesome Show! Great Job! Enjoy.

OFFICIAL TIM AND ERIC AWESOME SHOW, GREAT JOB! SEASON CINCO PROMO! from Tim and Eric on Vimeo.



See you in a few hours!! Shelley

A GOOD TIME AND A GOOD CAUSE!



They're over... FINALLY! Thanksgiving. Christmas. Hanukkah. New Year's... The excessive spending of money none of us ever had to begin with. Having to keep our homes spotlessly clean for visits from relatives we only see once a year. Kids on winter break amped up on chocolate, cookies and high expectations... and now the feelings of buyer's remorse, guilt from cheating on our resolutions, being stuck in our homes waiting to get outside to ride that new bike, shed those holiday pounds and clear out those stuffy lungs... HELLO POST HOLIDAY EXTRAVAGANZA!!!

Eric Barnes (AKA Edgar Burn) was definitely on to something when he organized the first Extravaganza back in March of 2008. His goal was to provide a day filled with stress-free entertainment for everyone. He organized a multiple artist exhibit with plenty of extra wall space for the kids, sledding and hot cider for the familes and a blistering rock and roll show down at the What's Up Lounge for those lucky to be over 21. The first Post Holiday Extravaganza was a success... and to repeat the festivities another year was indeed a feat in itself. And here we are... year 3!

In a nutshell, it's been a very challenging 6 months for Edgar and his family after his cancer diagnosis, and those close to them are pulling together in numerous ways to help them through this trying time. Everyone who knows Edgar knows how much he's promoted both music and art here in town, using his smashing talents to front many incarnations of the legendary "Rhythmaplex Project", entertaining the masses with awesome local music and uncanny banter on KMSU's "Minnesota Music Hour", and all the while assembling the wildest metallic sculptures the mind can imagine. Mankato just wouldn't be the same without the guy, and we're ready to prove it.

It all comes back to music, art, friends and community. This year's Post Holiday Extravaganza is a multi-faceted event that will not only give us plenty to stare at, stuff our faces with and rock out to, it'll give back to a family that's gone above and beyond for all of us.

And now, we present this year's Post Holiday Extravaganza!!! ...Drum roll PLEASE...

CRISPIN, MY CRISPIN!



We played Crispin Glover's version of These Boots are Made For Walking on the show this morning, which always brings back memories. A few years ago Shelley, Scooter Polanski, and myself went to see him screen his film "What Is It?" at the legendary Oak Street Cinema. It was a very... interesting film. It also provoked a violently angry discussion afterwards that I think even shocked him.

It also brings back memories of THIS classic moment in television. Over 20 years ago and it still haunts him...

HISTORY IN THE MAKING.....Shuffle Function welcomes WINTER STORM STEPHEN MERCHANT to Minnesota



We have run out of BBC radio host names to use, so Shyboy Tim and I are now utilizing BBC British comedians to name our winter storms after. We are pleased to hereby welcome the first such winter storm to the area, WINTER STORM STEPHEN MERCHANT.

You might know him best as the co-writer and star of The Office and Extras. If that isn't ringing any bells (but I hope it is), you may recognize him as the guy who taught The Rock how to be a tooth fairy...............or as the cook who blew up in Garth Marenghi's Darkplace.............or maybe as the guy who lost his goose in Hot Fuzz. After we get 11 inches of snow dumped on us, you won't soon forget who Winter Storm Stephen Merchant is. Be careful out there campers!!



Welcome to the wonderfull world of Shuffle Function named Winter Storms Stephen Merchant! and a big thank you to all past BBC radio hosts who have had Winter Storms named after them. I'm going to go peek out the window now and see if it is snowing.

Shelley

Shelley: And he directed a film that I love that I don't think alot of people know about, Walker.
Tim: With Ed Harris right? That was when Hollywood was calling him the .......... Wunderkind! But then he did Straight To Hell.
Shelley: I think he thought, "Well, I have all these great actors who will work with me, why not put them in the middle of the desert, give thm some guns, and make a Western?"
Tim: Yeah, you'd think that having Courtney Love, Joe Strummer, Shane MacGowan, and Elvis Costello in a film would make it golden!
Shelley and Tim: laughs
Shelley: What was the name of that guy who was in all of his films.....the director.......Bill. Bill Something?

Shelley: And we should probably mention that we have been playing a lot of Sid Vicious today, this is the day that Sid passed away.
Tim: Yes, on this day in 1979 Sid Vicious of the Sex Pistols died of a heroin overdose in New York City. There had been a party to celebrate Vicious's release on bail pending his trial for the murder of his former girlfriend, Nancy Spungen, the previous October. Party guests said that Vicious had taken heroin after midnight. An autopsy confirmed that Sid Vicious died from an accumulation of fluid in the lungs that is consistent with a heroin overdose. A syringe, spoon and heroin residue were found near the body.
Shelley: Did Sid die in the Chelsea Hotel?
Tim: No.... I don't think he was living there at the time.
Shelley: I hate to admit it, but most of my Sid Vicious knowledge comes from taht movie Sid and Nancy - who was the director for that?
Tim: Oh Alex Cox did that!
Shelley: Was that before or after he did Repo Man?
Tim: That was after, he was kind of on a roll until he did Straight To Hell and Hunter S Thompson yelled at him.
