Your Weekly Linkage

Here are a few items of interest that you may have missed while sitting alone cross legged on a hotel room bed, laughing maniacally at a rerun of “Three's Company.” Missed the reference? Tough luck, we' re moving on.

For your viewing pleasure, a fantastic YouTube montage of all David Caruso’s overly dramatic opening one liners from “CSI: Miami” before the show cuts to the intro credits. Sweet jebus, for a redhead, this guy is fairly cocky…

And the first chapter of the BoSox/Yanks rivalry of 2007 comes to a close. Great. In other news, the asshole quotient in Massachusetts just went up ten points. Sorry folks, but it’s tough for Rickey to root for the Red Sox even when they’re playing against the Yankees.

But hey, if you really want to read about how batshit crazy Manny Ramirez is, then by all means, proceed here.

Why exactly does Heath Ledger look like the main character from “The Crow”? Evidently he’s playing the Joker in the upcoming Batman movie. Looks fairly awful no? A little too emo to be the Joker, right? And what’s wrong with Caesar Romero reprising the role? Is he dead? Let’s quickly change the subject before this devolves into a 5,000 word treatise about nipples on the batsuit…

McSweeney’s breaks down the pros and cons of the top 20 presidential candidates. If number 7 doesn’t elicit a chuckle then you’re simply not human.

For all you Mac junkies (Rickey knows of at least two of his readers are) check out TUAW’s ongoing series, “Desktops of the Week” for a listing of user created desktop setups that make your Apple OSX look oh so much hipper and snazzy. No Mac? Congratulations on being unpretentious and commonsensical. Seek out your PC wallpaper here cupcake.

Remember last week when Rickey recommended frequenting used book sales? Try this fancy resource for a listing of all the upcoming local booksales near you. Just click on the state you want to search, and whammy! More used booksales than you can shake a stick at. On April 28th, there's a sale in a town called Coxsackie, NY. Best. Town. Name. Ever.

Now if you'll excuse Rickey, he's off to research the ballot requirements for running for Mayor of Coxsackie, NY.

Rickey, I'm confused: since you played for the Yankees from 1985-89, shouldn't you be rooting for them??

Mr Furious said...

That Caruso montage is hilarious. I hate that guy so much I could only make it thru about 2 or 3 minutes worth.

What do you think the percentage of clips incorporate that albino asshat putting on his sunglasses...

Rickey, what is your apple desktop profile like? It should contain pictures of that time you dressed up as a ghostbuster for xmas.

Rickey Henderson said...

Rickey does not and will not root for the Yanks under any circumstances. End of story.

RE: Caruso's unncessarily dramatic acting, you know you're in a bad show when major plot points are conveyed through the main character slowly removing or putting on their sunglasses.

Rickey's Ghostbusters pic does indeed need to be on his desktop. Once Rickey gets a decent scan of it, this oversight will be rectified shortly.

Stan - "Ike, do your impersonation of David Caruso's career"

Ike - "It's my turn" *jumps off UFO, lands on head*

gotta love South Park

Rickey was right. #7 in the Presidential pro/con list was truly funny. But more than that; it was an accurate representation of just why I can't vote for Optimus Prime. I mean, I'd love to...but I just haven't heard anything substantive out of him.

I must not be human.

It may have been funny, but I didn't know who Optimus Prime was til I looked "him" up. I think Transformers was a bit after my time, cartoonally speaking.

My apologies to the young fellas.

Mr Furious said...

Mike,

We're the same age, and I wouldn't know Optimus Prime from Oscar the Grouch if it weren't for some of the freelance work I do. Transformers, both toys and toon, seem to have just missed us old-timers.

You guys are missing out big time. Large robots stomping on things then transforming into cars? It's the American dream in action. What's not to love?
