Not much needs to be added to this editorial cartoon on Charlie Sheen. Except I do wonder after he caused Two and a Half Men to end production because of his actions, will this also mean he loses his Hanes endorsement deal. I hope those are Hanes he is sporting in the picture above.
So it seems a few Belieber’s (Justin Bieber fans) are running amok because their demigod did not win the Best New Artist award at the Grammys (see here for the story and here for 10 of the vilest tweets against Esperanza I could ever read).
Now maybe there is a legitimate gripe that she shouldn’t have even been considered in the category. However, how long and at what level does an artist have to be on the scene to no longer be considered new. If new to the previous year, then Justin himself wouldn’t have been eligible since his first album hit in 2009. And there has been a precedent set anyway. Back in 1999, Lauryn Hill won after going solo but was already established as part of the Fugees (and Sister Act II).
This isn’t American Idol. It is not a popularity contest.
You aren’t in seeking reform in the Middle East. This decision doesn’t truly affect your life in any meaningful way.
Justin isn’t going to marry you. So please have some decorum.
And while you are disappointed with his loss as a fan, do you really need to threaten someone who had nothing to do with any of the decisions in the first place? Why don’t you take a lesson from your idol and be gracious in your loss?
Above is the illustrious George Ford of Addanac City through the years made in a new discovery called Yearbook Yourself.
Yearbook Yourself allows you to upload a picture and take a look at yourself in a yearbook photo from the years 1950-2000. I immediately thought of George when I saw this because he still can’t get enough of my “Things to do with your photos before you put them on Facebook” post I did several years ago. Now I know how he will spend his President’s Day. Personally I think 1986 was his best years as he was getting his Kid and Play on.
But he isn’t the only one who loves the manipulated photos. Brit at Blunt Delivery is also a big fan of my original post. So here she is in all her splendor (I think they took the 1988 photo template from someone I know).
And lest anyone forget, the two of them were Homecoming King and Queen in 1978.
So head over to www.yearbookyourself.com and let us know what you come up with.
I am not really sure what it is but I have noticed over the last several years that when sitting on the couch watching TV, I have been prone to putting a hand down the front of my pants. Not all the way mind you (or touching the package) but just enough that the palm is on the lower stomach and the fingers are in the waist band. I find it a very comfortable position. And this is completely separate than stratching. No scratching involved. My wife rags on me for it and thinks it is hilarious.
So is this some right of passage that all men go through as they age? Will I have the tendency to some day have an entire arm down my pants? Fess up gentlemen. Do you too find comfort in this position? Ladies…thoughts? I would ask if I am “nuts” but that might not be appropriate.
