“Perform This Way”

Weird Al’s initial stab at a title track for his new album met with resistance from the original “artist”. Or, as @badbanana put it, “The song Lady Gaga didn’t want you to hear[.]”. Glorious. UPDATE: Here’s Weird Al’s side of the story. UPDATE 2: I’d be looking for a new manager if I were Lady […]

It’s No Twinkie-Wiener Sandwich*, But…

I bow before the meat-eating prowess of R. “Bacon Is A Vegetable” Stevens of Diesel Sweeties fame for his construction of the ultimate American food: Hot Dog Loaf.

“The Party Of The Century!”

Phew, what a week-and-a-half it’s been. I’ve hardly had two spare moments to rub together since last Thursday, the day chosen for my brother’s bachelor party.
