Gus Johnson=March Madness

5 03 2009

This video is well worth the watch if your into college basketball. Gus Johnson is the voice of the NCAA March Madness to me. This remix of a Fort Minor song done a few years ago is phenomenal.

Just watch the video and tell me you don’t get pumped up when Johnson goes “We’re going to overtimeeee innnnn Lexington…. HAHA!”

Rob Dyrdek’s Fantasy Factory season premiere does not disappoint

9 02 2009


Professional skateboarder, Rob Dyrdek picks up where he left off, bringing the readers into his event packed life at Rob Dyrdek’s Fantasy Factory.

The skateboarder became a recognized figure on MTV’s Rob & Big, a show that featured Dyrdek and his body guard, Christopher “Big Black” Boykins living the lives that many people can only dream of, in Los Angeles, California.

Over the course of three seasons, the two shared a huge home with Rob’s cousin nicknamed “Drama,” who is his personal assistant and often the object of some physical abuse.

Dyrdek, also welcomed two new members into his unique family. He bought a pudgy little bulldog that became known as “Meaty” and an out of control miniature horse, known as “Mini.” When not entertaining the two pets, Rob and Big would go on some crazy adventures. They rode the Superman ride swinging over visitors at a local theme park, driving dune buggies, making a music video and of course going skateboarding. They even taught Meaty to skateboard. Eventually the two had to part ways, when Big found out he was a father and moved out to go live with his girlfriend and their baby.

This season, begins when Rob races his Campagna T-Rex motorcycle onto the basketball court of his 25,000 square-foot warehouse, which also includes his own skate park, offices for all of his employees and a home for him, and his pets. It is also learned that he no longer has the miniature horse and welcomes another bulldog puppy, named “Beefy”.

Rob also has a foam pit and buys an inflatable blob that everyone can bounce off and land in the foam pit. He is also opening a restaurant with Los Angeles Lakers forward Lamar Odom, who he plays a game of one-on-one with, while on stilts.

For those looking for an entertaining show that lacks the made up drama of Laguna Beach or any other MTV show, then this show is just for you. So, tune in to MTV at 9pm on Sundays.

Review of ABC’s Version of Scrubs

2 02 2009

I have been an avid Scrubs watcher for about three years now, buying the old seasons to catch up to the present and watching the new shows on NBC the past two years. I was really excited when the show switched to ABC because I am not ready for the show to come to an end. Though the show probably will be ending after this year, it is good to see it at least get a proper farewell season—if this is it for the show—rather than last year’s strike-marred season being the show’s conclusion.

However, even I knew the show was starting to become a little stale storyline-wise last season. The writers seemed to be at a loss for new ideas. In the past year and a half it seemed all the writers could come up with to add some spice to the show was to keep having different characters have babies.

So, while I was excited for Scrubs to return this season I did have a little bit of trepidation that the season would continue the downward cycle of the show. Would I still watch? Of course, but mainly out of loyalty to the show and a desire to see its conclusion.

But this season so far (six episodes) has gone way above my expectations. The first show seemed a little slow in the going, but I think the writers felt a need to introduce all the characters a bit to the ABC audience. But, they have made a few great moves with the show this season (I’ll stay away from plot developments in case you have not seen the episodes and I inspire you to catch up)…

…The decision to keep the character of Bob Kelso around was a great move after he lost his job as chief of medicine, and also a nice way to end his character. While I think most viewers always thought he was very funny on the show, his character is a bit sadistic in the way he thinks of patients. This is a chance for viewers to feel okay about liking him because they can see his genuine human side. It doesn’t hurt that he has continued to be funny.

…The addition of the three new interns as strong secondary characters was a smart way to liven up the show, and inject a little bit of juice into the cast. There have been some rumors about these new interns becoming the main characters in a future season, if they do like a “Scrubs ‘The New Cast’” type deal, but that is in the future. As of now, the interns have added a few new storylines to the show, and also have allowed us to see the progression of JD, Turk and Elliot in how they deal with these interns, the first interns really given room for their own character development (Keith was just a pawn for Elliot).

…Lastly, the outtakes at the end of the show are priceless. Possibly, the best part of the show. Here is one below.

Best and Worst Super Bowl Commercials

2 02 2009

By my account, we were subjected to a weak field of Super Bowl commercials this year. There were a couple bright spots, but definitely more low lights than usual.

My vote for best commercial below…

I was watching the game with about 20-30 people, and everyone burst out laughing during this one. I thought the ending was a bit weak—I was hoping for a snow globe to the face rather than the groin—but the opening segments there were pretty hysterical.

Worst Commercial…

Why would I want to drink Coke after seeing this commercial? Scary looking little ants are going to steal my drink, and probably one or two stragglers would probably crawl up my leg. No thanks.
