...For The Ride Home: NFL lockout likely, guess the drum solo and Conan takes his shots

Finally had time to sit down and watch "The Fabulous Baker Boys" last night. Michelle Pfeiffer is the second most stunning woman I've ever seen in a movie. Goodness, gracious. Research shows she was up for an Academy Award for this 1989 performance, but alas she came up on the losing end of the competition. Awards or no awards, those musical numbers are so damn seductive and sexy, it's incredible. Anyways, we are officially half way through week eight, and we would like to take this opportunity to thank you, the talented and thoughtful reader, for sticking with us through these first two months. We'd also like to welcome new readers who (judging by the numbers) have found their way to our tiny little corner of the InterWebs. We love you all equally. As for now, click a link or two, contemplate the importance of cell phones or take some time to put "The Fabulous Baker Boys" in your Netflix que. And don't forget to eat right, friends. Always eat right.

  1. Big Bang Theory vs. Community at 8 p.m. Thursday's should be an interesting showdown...
