Cocktails and Dinosaurs: News and Libations for the Weekend of October 1, 2010

Semi weekly/monthly/biannual posts that contain obsolete information no one cares about anymore, except for me.

I saw this guy last night or another spider-like man that pulls a rickshaw while doing awesome acrobatic things.
  • Max Weinberg and Conan O'Brien break off their longtime relationship as bandleader and talk show host. Rumor has it Max joined a collective created to defend New Jersey against MTV executives and the cast of Jersey Shore.*

  • Most Stolen Sign in NYC

  • The FBI finally found Waldo! ...but what about the man with the beard?

  • UN names Official Alien Spacecraft Greeter... I can't believe my dream job actual existed and I got snubbed by the UN!

  • Warm summer nights just got a little bit colder. Could the lightning bug be on the brink of extinction? They were my favorite bug to catch and then watch fly away and then catch again... help save them!

Cocktail of the Week:

I don't know what this is called but it tastes like a banana runt. It's a mixture of vodka, midori melon liquor, and pineapple juice. It is quite delicious if you like runts.

Next time, expect a less girly, less sweet libation and please give me suggestions.

Send any news tidbits and cocktails ideas to:

*By rumor, I am referring to something I made up and presume would be a great idea.

Things That Are Scaring The Crap Out Of Me Right Now

I was innocently watching tv tonight when this popped on to retard my sleep for the rest of the month:

The little white dog's uncharacteristic arm movements represent begging anyone who'll listen to mercy-kill him. "AND WE WON! (In my Snuggie)."

I've been really jazzed about this anti-proud-parent site lately. What terrifies me is that when I Facebook-stalk, I find at least one update or status comment in the identical vein. I am quickly getting convinced that when people in Generations X or Y conceive a child, they develop an as-yet-undiagnosed condition (I will call it UberLove Syndrome) that compels them to feel and speak the same child-centric way. But no worries - they wouldn't change a thing!!!!!!!!!!!!

Last but last least, here is the video for MGMT's new song, "Congratulations". Nothing says horror and sadness like an emaciated quadruped ostrich slowly dying in the desert.
