Thursday Ramblings

How decent are outtakes? Nothing caps a good movie like some funny outtakes playing while the credits roll. Two flicks to recommend with some hysterical outtakes: The Cannonball Run and The 40-Year-Old Virgin. … Dear the m’fcker who hacked into my e-mail and sent out a message to everyone on my contact list offering cheap, generic viagra: FUCK OFF! … Three links for your reading enjoyment this Thursday: 1) A look at Japan’s oddest museums, including the best of Japanese advertising and even one full of parasite specimens; 2) A Time Magazine reporter offers a nice account of the Winter Olympics, including how the Vancouver edition was the drunkest Olympics of all time; and 3) Check out these cool pieces of art made from stuff on your desk. … It’s a big week down at the decent Rose Alley Ale House in downtown New Bedford. The popular pub is celebrating its first birthday with a range of events, including a March Madness-themed beer tournament, a wings-eating contest, and the release of a special calendar featuring the beautiful ladies of the Rose Alley. Swing by and check it out all weekend. … Happy 54th birthday to the current mayor of Sacramento, Calif. and former NBA All-Star guard Kevin Johnson. He was the seventh pick in the 1987 NBA Draft, a draft that featured Hall of Famers David Robinson (No. 1 to the Spurs) and Scottie Pippen (No. 5 to the Supersonics) and future Hall of Famer Reggie Miller (No. 11 to Indiana). The Celtics used the 22nd pick that year on a shooting guard from Northeastern — Reggie Lewis. … Happy 42nd birthday to porn star and weird fetish queen Susan Cummings. Did you know Cummings has appeared in more than 280 pornos and has 45EE boobs? I tried to find a link to one of her “movies” on ExtremeTube, but apparently, she’s too much for the Internet. Ont he other hand, if you’re into that sort of thing, ExtremeTube is pretty decent.
