Top Ten Guitar Solos

The guitar solo is a vital part of the rock band format. It serves a dual purpose, allowing for the lead singer to rest his larynx and most importantly, to restore balance in the battle of the egos within the band.

New CD releases for November 22nd

It was a real struggle to get to seven worthy releases this week. After all, this is Thanksgiving week and most people are out buying turkeys. Having read through the list of new releases I now understand the true meaning of irony. Enjoy.

Brett Favre's Penis
Not this kind of rule ! ! - y'all have dirty minds
The NFL have heard all the evidence and have issued the following statement:-

WTF? - Captcha

You have probably seen them and used them but did you know what they are called? Those distorted words that you have to decipher to prove you are a real human and not some computer operated site crawler or 'bot'.

New CD Releases for November 16th

A slightly different and less labor intensive format for this week. More new CDs and no more track listings.
I figured if anyone cares enough about what songs are on the disc they can click the picture and be whisked off to the relevant page. So here we go with this weeks rundown in no particular order.

WTF? - Technology Addiction Extremes

Many of us joke about being addicted to technology. "Oh, I would be so lost without my Blackberry", "It feels like I am married to my iPhone", but technology addiction is much more common and serious than most people realize.

Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street
2007 R 116 minutes

NETFLIX SAYS - Johnny Depp reteams with director Tim Burton for this big-screen adaptation of the hit Broadway musical, earning an Oscar nod as vengeful Sweeney Todd, who becomes a deranged murderer after being falsely imprisoned by a sinister judge (Alan Rickman). To cover his tracks, Todd enlists the help of Mrs. Lovett (Helena Bonham Carter), who disposes of the victims by baking them into tasty meat pies that become the toast of London.

Improvements to NASCAR for 2011

Everybody knows that NASCAR is about as exciting as watching 43 cars drive round in circles for 6 hours, waiting for some guy on a stepladder to wave a checkered flag to end the misery and declare a winner.

New CD Releases for November 9th

Another week, another pointless list of the new CD releases. I know nobody buys CDs anymore, it's all .mp3 or iTunes where you can download a single song instead of a whole album. Personally, I would rather enjoy the music the way the artist meant it to be enjoyed, and not disjointed in a cut rate, low quality format.

WTF? - Ricky Martin is Gay?

Thanks to Oprah! and The View and some serious investigative journalism, the truth about Ricky Martin and his sexual proclivities is out. And so is he.

Dear Tina,
I'm chubby, broke and I live with my parents. I'm also stubborn, opinionated and have no brain-to-mouth filter. Where do I go to meet Prince Charming?
