things to do this weekend – new bedford

hammer posted this as a comment on his page.  however, i think it’s important information and considering he is having trouble posting it to the front page i have taken the liberty to do it for him:

  • “There is an immigration raid in the S. End, that I got front row tix to for Friday night.
  • Bull riding @ Libads all weekend.” – Hammer

holy crap look at this trailer: http://movies.radiofree.com/reviews/rambo4.shtml.  my god it’s better than the trailer on imdb.

official website: http://movies.break.com/rambo/  check out the soundtrack page. 

some notable song titles: “rambo takes charge”, “prison camp”, “rambo returns”, “attack on the village”, and my favorite “hunting mercenaries”, but who am i kidding all the titles are freaking awesome.

kelsey’s favorite show

kelsey just called to tell me his favorite show is “cooking with paula.”  http://www.foodnetwork.com/food/show_pa

his favorite episodes include:

3.  purse pleasers – where paula shows that a great meal doesn’t have to cost a lot of money (drinking sunday to sunday and eating beef and chicken sticks at shangs 3 nights a week can cost a lot of cash).

2.  thai for my guy – paula’s husband, michael, heads east for the perfect thai menu (frank also likes thai.  if frank’s happy kelsey is happy).

1.  back porch breakfast – where paula gets horny about eggs benedict and literally laughs uncontrollably about how cute her homemade english muffins are (because you can’t nail becks and bagels every morning).

he never misses an episode.  cooking with paula airs every weekday at 7:30, saturday and sunday at 1:00 and 4:00.
