recorded/live-blogging on Palin speech

It's been a while...but I think this warrants a post.

Quick wrap-up: Lamer and N'awesomer than I expected. Similar to a Nickelback show opened by Nickleback.

11:51pm--D'oh. Recording stopped. It's just as well. Not sure I like this McCain-Palin ticket. I mean I'm white and all. I'm just not sure Republican white.

11:49pm--Pan across the crowd...douche bags abound.

11:48pm--And the red meat continues...civil rights are for pussies (credit to the wife for that line).

11:46pm--Man, I think Michelle might want to whoop up on this bitch. For what it's worth, I think it'd be a good fight.

11:41pm--I think I just heard her say she nationalized oil production in Alaska. Wow, this is getting good.

11:38pm--OMG. The Republicans just had a collective orgasm when she knocked the media elite. Wonder if Fox News is a part of that establishment. Someone grab a towel.

11:36pm--Oh snap. No she didn't. She just dissed community organizers. Oh, it's on. I'm about to do a strategy chart and some relational meetings now.

11:34pm--I wish Bob Probert would drop the gloves with this "hockey-mom".

11:32pm--Loving the all-black back drop for Palin...countering those of us who commented on the lack of diversity in the crowd. This just in: Palin still loves America. And she's proud of it.

11:31pm--Republican's just clapped for unions...kind of. Wait, I can't hear...Cindy McCain's dress is too loud.

11:30pm--Seriously, this is like listening to a PTA president talk about how reading is important.

11:27pm--news flash: Palin's proud of the troops. And a chant of "USA, USA" breaks out.

11:25PM--Put our country first. Message of the night. That's opposed to Obama/Biden's platform of putting Australia first.

11:22pm--What's the "S" in John S. McCain stand for? Sadaam?

11:21pm--is she from Alaska or Wisconsin? Sounds like a cheesehead.

11:20pm--they're still clapping...c'mon. Let's save that for Barack.

11:18pm--I see white people. Not an original observation regarding Republicans, I know. But sheez, let some people of color in. Even Palin's wardrobe lacks color.

11:17pm--the wife is tired and wants to fast-forward through Sir 9/11. I'm certain we missed nothing.

11:16pm--Mr. 9/11 is up first. Sucky speaker. Can't believe he makes millions making speeches for a living.

Mr. Kucinich done snapped on Washington

In case you don't know Rep. Kucinich introduced a 35 count impeachment proceeding this evening. From what I can tell he started a couple hours ago and is only on article 17. This is either going to be brushed off or go forward and make some progress on executive accountability, to what end I don't know...

I may try to live blog some more of this as I watch it.

A mans guide to stuff and things...

So no list this week as I am becoming some what disenchanted with typing up ordered lists about inconsequential things. In its stead I am going to continue to post random things with even less meaning. So in order to begin your weekend I will give you a definitive guide to being a dude. And if you find that you are not a dude or even if you discover that you are the opposite of a dude, a chick, Ill let you behind the curtain...

Get Learnt Here

So this Facebook thing could be big.

My hiatus from the world of Aw-Some can be blamed on this new way to network socially, Facebook. Yeah, I never heard of it either. That is, until about a week ago.

Since I joined, I've noticed that many of my friends and/or people I know have followed my lead. I don't want to take too much credit, but I'm just sayin'.

Now that I've helped get this little project off the ground, I can devote more time to Aw-Some.

A short week...listed.

I hope everybody had a good holiday weekend and honored the troops by driving long distances and grilling processed meats. I know I did.

first- Awesome goes to Memorial Day weekend. I love an extra day off. It rules.

second- Im going to give Guitar Hero an awesome cause I can. I wasnt sure if I was going to like it but after a couple of trys I got into it and was able to hang with RDukes who spent most of the last week playing that game while he was supposed to be working. I now want to try Rock Band so I can suck at drums too.

Again RDukes gets a nawsome nomination. He is the one person on this blog that would contribute meaningful comments and ideas. My posts are more of the variety that reflect my level of maturity. For some time RDukes would post about things we should care about like world events, politics, and election issues. Where as I post about things we should care less about like tv, video games, and Afghanistan. We need him to pull more of his weight around here.

last- Henry Jones Jr. and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. I saw this on Sunday and it was not too bad but fails to be awesome. In its simplest it isnt any better or worse than the last one.

It happend again...

Sorry this is going to be a negative list cause I'm not in the best shape right now.

1- Airlines/ travel: This gets the biggest nawesome award ever. If you don't know me or my history Ill let you know that I have the worst luck when ever I travel. I went to California for the weekend for my cousins wedding. The flight out there went pretty well which made me very anxious about the trip back. Sure enough the trip back ended awfully. First we pulled up to the gate and the jetway didn't work. So we ended up having to stay on the plane for an extra hour while the moved us to 2 other gates. Pretty sweet huh? Then there was also the fact that I started to get sick over the weekend and as the plane was descending into Ohare my ears never unpopped from the pressure. So for the past 18 hours I have been functionally deaf. Less than nawesome.

2- Gas (both kinds): What the shit? Gasoline is like 4.25 a gallon. Lame. Sorry RDukes you'll have to come pick me up now if you want to hang out.

3- Bars that close early: The bar at both the reception and the hotel closed early. Now the bar at the reception closed right in the middle of the event because they couldn't keep up. Easy there guy. Now I understand slowing down while the other bartenders restock but to close all together, I say nay. That gets the biggest nawesome award ever.

4- Noise Canceling Headphones: Awesome during air travel. Nuff said.

Is it time for an intervention?

So I guess I could say that RDukes is one of my best friends ever and even if he and I break off our bromance Ill remember him forever. Well maybe not him specifically but the countless times he has forced me to view various parts of his man parts are burned into my mind like a branding iron...

So whether this is a great friendship or some kind of Stockholm Syndrome thing where I like him is yet to be determined. Nonetheless I am concerned about him. In recent days I have taken up a hidden post watching his behavior as it has become somewhat worrisome. He spends entirely too much time playing video games. Specifically GTA 4. The worst part is that hes not very good at video games. As I put it to him whist suffering through his attempt at completing a sniper mission..."This is like watching a retarded person eat soup".

For those of you that are concerned as well I have compiled my findings in an easy to read pie chart. Please enter in your comments to that we can save the Duker from himself...
