You missed "Don't Walk" from SportsCenter:Well, the reason I missed it is because, somehow, I'd never seen that. If I had, I can guarantee it would've made the list. It's instantly one of my favorite This Is SportsCenter commercials of all time, just behind the one about the kid who they drafted to the show right out of high school. (I'm thinking a list of the 11 Best This Is SportsCenter Ads could be a good one to write soon, too...)
Between your misspelled protest sign list and your love for Arrested Development, I instantly thought of you when I saw this one:I agree. I watched a video on ESPN.com where he had time to fill out a NCAA tournament bracket (and brutally misspell Syracuse in the process)... he should easily be able to squeeze in time to get the band back together.
I think Obama better get on that.
What do you think about the 3rd season of AD?I recently re-watched the entire series (in a small window on my computer screen while I did other stuff -- much as I wanted to I couldn't bring myself to spend an entire day on the couch) and found myself getting somewhat frustrated with the third season.
I was curious as to how you built that website? What program did you use?Well, for better or worse, I'm old school and build everything from scratch. For the design, I hand code all of the HTML and PHP using an older program called Homesite. (Still one of the best HTML text editors ever.) Now that my PC died and I've become (sigh) a Mac guy, I have made the transition over to Dreamweaver. It's going so-so.
You need to do another list of news bloopers, like this one. It's even from your hometown of Cleveland!Ya know, just when I think the people of Cleveland can't do anything dumber, I see a clip like this... and they totally redeem themselves!
1. Do you think 11 Points could ever become your primary source of income?That was good. It's been a little while since I did one of those.
I don't know. At various different times I think yes or no. Right now I'm a little down on it -- my traffic has plateaued, albeit at a pretty nice plateau, for basically a year now. I'd probably need to dig up another 500,000 readers per month to get it to the point where I could completely live off of it. And I'm a little stumped on how to make that happen.
2. Did you vote in the last Presidential election?
Yes, I've voted in the past three. I voted for Obama here in California which, of course, is kinda a throw away. If I was less scrupulous I'd register to vote with my parents' Ohio address, where my vote would actually mean something.
3. If you could have your own band, what would it be called?
Either the Zack Attack, The Moe Szyslak Experience featuring Homer, or DJ Tanner.
4. What would your first move be following a mythical World Series title for the Indians be?
I'm actually not sure how I'd take it. I think I'd just be confused. I've never cheered for a team that's won a championship. I think that history of disappointment is actually part of my identity on some level.
5. Why the hell did you drive a Jeep anyway?
I've always loved Jeep Wranglers. And I got one in my mid 20s because I figured I wouldn't be able to get one once I was a real adult. Maybe as a second car one day. But not any time soon.
6. Do you carry a wallet or a money clip?
I have a wallet and vigilantly protect its thickness. At no time are more than five plastic cards allowed to be inside of it. I hate thick wallets.
7. Who is your least favorite author?
I don't know that I have someone who I flat-out dislike, but I have some raging negative opinions toward the For Dummies and Complete Idiot's Guide lines of books.
8. Why won't Nintendo stop adding stupid features to new versions of the DS?
It's classic Nintendo. They're never satisfied with the good hardware they make... they always need to concoct some dumb ass add-on that no one likes. From the old NES robot to the SNES mouse to the N64DD to the Wii controller Motion Plus and biorhythm sensor, they have an endless reputation of being clueless about peripheral add-ons.
9. Lists of 10 are for cowards, so what does that make someone who makes lists of 12?
A masochist. The average 11 Points list takes me four hours. I did that for almost a full year before I had any real readership because I'm certifiably insane. If someone wants to do 12 point lists, I wish them the best of luck.
10. Your lousy date foray at a Vanilla Ice concert made me wonder: What ever happened to Coolio?
A few friends of mine had him do a paid cameo in a web video a few years ago. Apparently he still has a disproportionate ego. So I don't see anyone wanting to put up with that to try to relaunch him.
11. Have you noticed the bizarre resemblance between the lead actor in A Serious Man and the main guy on The Big Bang Theory?
I just don't see it. I don't even know if he looks more like Leonard or Sheldon. I feel like this last question might've been a bzinga.
Just in case you were thinking of running an update of on your '11 photos ruined by sex in the background' list....I attach a photo someone took of my sister in university here in the UK....My sister is in the centre of the photo with her friend.......Notice the couple in the background.....I'm happy to see that going on in England too. Completely inappropriate drunken public groping should not be bound by the ocean.
Did you know there's potentially a penis in "Teen Wolf"? Check out the guy in red behind the dad in the bleachers around 0:36...There are a few versions of this on YouTube and it generally looks like, while his pants are unbuttoned, it isn't full nudity, just underwear. Either way, it's still a fantastic hidden background gem from "Teen Wolf". Right up there with this weird one from "Back To The Future Part III".
As a black woman I totally agree that it is a ridiculous concept that my boyfriend would attempt to do a "romantic gesture" which involves my hair. It's a weave and it's considered one of the wonders of the natural world, something to be marveled at and admired at a distance lol. Although honestly do white woman appreciate a good wash and condition on a date??I don't know about white women, but I can speak on behalf of white men here... I would absolutely love for someone to wash my hair on a date. It's very rare that I get the full shampoo treatment when I get my hair did, but I absolutely revel in it. There's nothing better.
