Al Phlipp and the Woo Teams Two-Fisted Tales of True Romance
Al Phlipp and the Woo Teams Two-Fisted Tales of True Romance

Ah, now I figgered out how to do something with the audio. Listen to “Blammer” by Al Phlipp and the Woo Team by Clicking on the gray arrow below.

Heh. How about some Soft Porn inspired music, like “Satori”? From the Experimental Album II by Al Phlipp and the Woo Team.

Speaking of which, if you like sexy music (or, at least, music with the sounds of sex included), you might want to take a listen to some of Cinemax Will Show This Feature Only at Night.

Cinemax Will Show This Feature Only At Night, By Al Phlipp and The Woo Team.
Cinemax Will Show This Feature Only At Night, By Al Phlipp and The Woo Team.

With tunes like “Deep In The Throat”:

And, “Jane Austen’s Left Hand”:

Also, “The New Girlfreak”:

And the evocatively titled: “Big Blowjob”:

Or the very reminiscent of mid-80s Friday nights spent watching Cinemax After Dark (to me, anyway), “Bobbading!”:

Al Phlipp & The Woo Team Continues To Rock

I like ’em, anyway. The Ballad of the Clean Teeth Cowboy, for instance.

 That’s from the Al Phlipp album, Anytown, U.S.A.

There is also The Deep Sea Letter_”O”. From the same album. Which rocks. Listen to The Deep Sea Letter “O” by clicking below:

A cool track from the Experimental Album II is Effulgent. I’m also partial to Glomming On. Just so ya know.

Also plenty of Classic Al Phlipp from the ’80s on their website. Like We’ve Got Our Batteries (We’re Coming For Your Snoopy Dolls) from the 1986 album, Traumatica.

1986s Traumatic, from Al Phlipp & The Woo Team

Another classic from 1986, Blessed Sacrament, gives us the classic tune, Phyllis Tickle Must Die And here’s the album itself:

Awright. Enough for now. More later.

In These Tough Economic Times, Play Poker Online

In tough economic times, it might be fun to throw all your money into a bottomless black pit.

I’ve recently received handy Full Tilt Poker Referral Code. You can have it too, if you follow the link.

Just let me explain something to you: these people aren’t in business to make you money. Gambling at all is a bad idea. It’s a waste of your time and money. Gambling on line is about the most unproductive thing you can do on the web, or on a computer, or anywhere else.

Want to Burn Money? Better to set fire to it than gamble online. I'm just sayin'.

However, if you really get a kick out of playing online poker and throwing your money into the black pit of Internet, there’s a Full Tilt Poker Referral Code waiting for you. And get your Full Tilt Bonus code here.

But this isn’t a recommendation to go play poker online. I’d advise you not to. But if you have to, there it is! A referral code to help you go burn your money. Yay!

Carrie Prejean Posing "Semi-Nude" And It's Bad Because She Said She Liked Traditional Marriage. Destroy Her, Lefties!
Carrie Prejean Posing “Semi-Nude” And It’s Bad Because She Said She Liked Traditional Marriage. Destroy Her, Lefties!

In other news, Miss California Carrie Prejean is being attacked for a semi-nude photo–where she shows less skin than an average TV show, these days–but not really. It’s because she said she thought marriage should be between one man and one woman. What a horrible person! For having an opinion that dares to disagree with Perez Hilton.

It’s a sad state the world has descended to. Maybe you should go gamble away all your money online. What’s it matter, now?

Anyway, if you couldn’t tell, TheDirty.com broke the story.

 

 

Liz Claiborne and Isaac Mizrahi Launch a New Spring Collection, and Good for Them

So, Isaac Mizrahi Launches New Spring Collection with Liz Claiborne. And lots of people are really excited. I prefer to new line on lingerie from Victoria’s Secret. But maybe that’s just me.

Isaac Mizrahi is So Stylish and Cool. Look at that scarf. With a turtle neck! Wow, if only I could be as cool as Isaac.

Mysteriously renowned fashion designer and–ahem–“style icon” Isaac Mizrahi has launched his new spring collection with Liz Claiborne. Full of color and bright patterns (that’s what they say–what are “bright patterns”? Is that like “geometric colors”?), Isaac’s new line is supposedly about “creating value for the modern woman”.

Sounds like marketing double-speak to me, but what do I know? I’m not a style maven. Or a fashion icon. I like jeans and t-shirts. But maybe that’s just me.

This is Creating Value for the Modern Woman? Ho-kay.

I dunno, but I’ve seen the prices at Liz Claiborne. I think Wal-Mart’s more about actually creating value for the modern woman. Just my opinion. Worth about 2 cents.

Gluten Free Diets

You’re all suddenly excited about gluten free diets.  So, watch the video here.

I guess you can still look pretty healthy and not eat gluten. I’m just not sure about these crazy diets, that’s all I’m saying. You’re a nut, Elizabeth. A nut!

In other news,  Ida Ljungquist formally took the Playmate of the Year Crown. That’s quite a mouthful of name for a Playmate of the year, but there ya go.

She's cute enough, I suppose, but I'm not impressed. 12 months of Playmates and she's really the best they could do? Much better in the 80s.

Yes, you heard me right. Much better in the 80s. Like Marianne Gravatte, for one. Link Not Safe for Work, BTW. You’ve been warned, don’t complain to me.

Marianne Gravatte was 80s Hot. Puts today's so-called Playmates of the Year to shame.

People Want Me to Go Satellite, But I’m Waiting for IP TV

The Satellite is an Example of Human Exceptionalism and Manifest Destiny in Action. From Television to Radio to TV, the Satellite is an Awesome Invention. Thank you, Mr. Arthur C. Clarket

Lots of people out there want my to switch to Direct TV. From friends and family to an awful lot of email I get that claims to be from people I know but I don’t think I really do.

And I like the idea of  Satellite Directv. A lot. My Dad has it. I may have mentioned that. If I could be sure an arrangement of DirectTV and DSL from AT&T would actually be cheaper than Comcast.

Speaking of satellites, does anybody reading this subscribe to XM Radio? Or, Sirius Satellite Radio, I suppose? Anybody else notice that since XM and Sirius merged, they are messing up the stations? I swear, I can’t find stations I used to like to listen to. They’re just gone, replaced by something from Sirius that I don’t want. What’s that all about?

How XM Satellite Radio Works. Pretty cool, but I still don't think I'm going to renew.

If the Dish Network and Direct TV Satellite networks merge, would the same thing happen? Would channels get rearranged or disappear or cost more? I’m sorry, but I worry about these things.

I dunno. I think in the long run, home television is going to get replaced by some form of IP TV, using things like iTunes and the AppleTV or Hulu and Boxee. It’s just the way things are going. And don’t forget the Slingcatcher from Sling Media. It fits in there, somewhere, too. I’m not saying I know where, just that I might skip a transition to Direct Satellite TV or whatever entirely, and just wait for IP TV to get good enough. Cuz it is getting there, and faster than you might think.

Awright. Gotta run and do real work. More later.

Back from Disney World, and Tickets for General Motors Place

Went to Disney World. It was fun, but it was not without it’s downside. For one thing, it’s like the second or third time I’ve been there since Disney and General Motors did the Test Track.

Apparently, the sponsorship of Test Track is in jeaopardy. Understandable, given General Motors financial problems. I wonder if they’ll mothball the ride, if General Motors stops sponsoring.

The Test Track replaced the also GM-sponsored World of Motion at EPCOT, which I still remember fondly.

I kinda wonder if one of the reasons General Motors is having problems–other than outrageous union contracts–would be sponsoring things like Test Track, and helping foot the bill for entire sports arenas, like General Motors Place. BTW, you can get General Motors Place tickets right now from ACheapSeat.com. They also offer Sears Centre Arena tickets (really, that’s the kind of thing Sears has been spending their money on?). At least Verizon has the money to spend on Arena Sponsorships. Which they did. And you can get Verizon Center Tickets from those guys, too.

Why is it Sears Centre but Verizon Center? And then, General Motors Place? I don’t suppose we’ll ever answer these questions.

Talking about Disney World and Tickets, I gotta mention a few other things. You may be able to get get cheap tickets to sports arenas, but getting cheap tickets to Disney World is a whole other thing. I tried to get some tickets near the resort from folks promising cheap tickets, but they didn’t have them, or it involved some weird bait-and-switch, or you have to go drag your family to sit through some three-hour presentation on why you should spend your life savings on a time-share property to get a thirty dollar discount on some park tickets. That sucked. But there’s another side to the story . . .

The Disney World Ticket and Transportation Center, which is mainly for getting to the Magic Kingdom. It's also like right next door to the Polynesian Resort. You can just walk from one to the other.

We had come down to Florida with four day passes for the parks. We used them, then wanted some more days. Then I find out if you go to the ticket center, you can add days for like $3 bucks a day. So you don’t get penalized for just buying a five day pass in the first place. Anyway, that was cool, we bought the extra days, had a great dinner at the Sci-Fi Dine-In Dinner Theater and saw the Beauty & The Beast Show. Had a three-almost-four year old little girl who was delighted. It was awesome.

Now, I’m looking forward to going again in a year or two. I just need to lose weight and get in primo-walking shape. My feet were hard hit, this trip.

All right. More later, peoples. Have a great day!
