I Love the Aughts

If anything, this trip to Fort Mitchell has at least given me plenty of time to watch “I love the 90s” on VH1.  With them showing 1995 last night, I’m over halfway through their set of shows, and so far I’m not impressed.  One of the better parts of the 80s and 90s shows was the nostalgia and seeing people that were involved in whatever they were talking about.  I mean, last night they were talking about freakin’ Toy Story and Playstation.  OOOOOOhhh, I remember the good ol’ days too!  Nothing like a good laugh at the thought of the Playstation coming out. 

But still, that’s tolerable.  What is getting on my nerves is Michael Ian Black.  Not that I have any grounds to be hating on someone because they are a smartass, but this guy has nothing in his comedy vault besides a wiseass comment.  And it gets old.  Take for example last nights episode, 1995.  That was only 9 years ago.  And all Michael Ian Black is bringing to the table are some pretty lame sarcastic remarks.  I’m not impressed.  Add to the fact that the dude was 21 in 1991, and I really stop caring.  Part of the charm of the 80s and 90s shows were that the people hosting it were 10-16 years old at the time, and still looked back with fondness and nostalgia to their childhood.  Michael Ian Black was on the State, probably making the same exact smartass jokes he’s making now.  Same thing can be said about Mo Rocca who is probably just rehashing Daily Show jokes.

Highlights of the show has to be Dee Snider, who with his participation with not only the “I love the x0s” series  but also as the voice of the 100 metal moments has catapulted himself into a VH1 clip-show legend.  There is just something funny about seeing Dee Snider bitching about having to find all the power rangers for his kids.  Another metal rocker that I always enjoy seeing is Anthrax’s Ian Scott.  Just his bit on Ace of Bass was worth watching alone (“I mean, come on.  Don’t we have enough crappy pop in America?  Why do we need to import Swedish crap rock.”)  These guys are at least talking about stuff they know and lived through, not sitting there taking smug pot shots at Waco or O.J.

Other “I love the 90s” all-stars would have to be the NFL players.  Jamal Anderson has been particularly funny.  They’ve got two of the original Power Rangers, including Amy Jo Johnson, the pink ranger.  It turns out Billy West (of Ren and Stimpy and the tastefully named Philip J Fry fame) is insane. The Snapple Lady is a funny gag, but I’m ready to put my foot through the TV anytime Hammer or the no talent-ass clown Michael Bolton comes on the screen. 

I don’t know.  I mean, once they get to 1999 are they going to be looking back nostalgically on the launch of the Euro?  I don’t think enough time has passed.  I think they’ve got too much smart ass, not enough “Oh my god, I loved this stuff” or “dear God, being bubba from Forrest Gump ruined my career” moments.

I guess I should point out the at 6pm they'll be airing these episodes for like three or four hours straight, so you can check them out tonight on vh1.

Phil on Thursday, July 15, 2004 at 2:06 PM

Holy crap, I almost forgot about this. I was watching Six Feet Under, and Denise Flemming was making out with Mike Dexter. Simply a mind blowing scene. And Mike Dexter asked her "Do you like to have your nipples played with?" and she replied "Not if we have to talk about it."

I hope to god I'm not the only one who understands the universe altering nature of this scene. I just stared at the TV not believing what I was watching. It was on the latest episode they are running on HBO called "Can I Come Up Now?"

In news that will probably interest far more people than that story, Mike Dexter has probably pushed Denise Flemming into having a lesbian thing with the chick from American Beauty. I have no idea their character names, or who they are in real life (actually, I just can't spell the chick from american beauty's name...menu safari or something like that), but yeah.

Phil on Thursday, July 15, 2004 at 2:51 PM

So it looks like Kobe is staying with the Lakers. What's with all these people saying that Kobe is blowing a chance at making history by not playing for the clippers and turning them around? The clipper's owner Donald Sterling is a world class shithead that doesn't care about winning, just drawing the biggest profit possible. The only reason he would want Kobe is to jack up the prices for tickets, not to win ball games.

I wish i could have seen all this stuff on tv, but i can't. L G & E needs to go fuck themselves up the ass. I am still lacking electricity at my house. I am at 51 hours and counting. If you count a week and a half ago, the last time st matthews got raped, i have been without electricity for 83 hours and counting. this is fucking gay!!!! MY FUCKING BEER IS WARM!!!!

Phil on Friday, July 16, 2004 at 6:24 AM

I watch two hours more of I love the 90s, and it didn't get much better. But it was well worth it to see Ian Scott's take on Hanson.

Phil on Friday, July 16, 2004 at 6:29 AM

Man, Roger Ebert's review of Cinderella isn't to be missed: http://www.suntimes.com/output/eber...derella16f.html

"Even when a critic dislikes a movie, if it's a good review, it has enough information so you can figure out whether you'd like it, anyway. For example, this review is a splendid review because it lets you know you'd hate 'A Cinderella Story,' and I am pretty much 100 percent sure that you would. So I offer the following advice. "

Brock on Friday, July 16, 2004 at 7:01 AM

Can someone explain to me why Phil is reading reviews of "Cinderella Story?" I haven't even heard of this movie until you mentioned it. He must have come across it after getting slammed by some dudes, or talking about politics.

KellyHarrison on Friday, July 16, 2004 at 7:13 AM

i-robot sounds better.

Phil on Friday, July 16, 2004 at 7:57 AM

i, robot the book was pretty good, but from what I understand is they took the title, and the setting in the future. oh, and they have robots. and that's about it. you see, "i, robot" the movie would probably be cool to watch as a summer action movie - if they weren't trying to play off the books title. But isn't blasting away evil robots almost the opposite of the book? Why not just call it "Minority Independence Matrix" or something like that, instead of ripping of a classic book. I wonder how many people will read the book after the movie and wonder "when is he going to hop into his audi and blast some bad guys?!?!"

as for the cinderella one, the link came from fark.

Plow King on Friday, July 16, 2004 at 8:11 AM

Holy crap! Being Bubba so ruined Cuba's career that apparently he asked IMDB to remove his name from the cast list from their entry to Forrest Gump.

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0109830/fullcredits

In his defense, he did go on to win an Oscar for Jerry Maguire. I think a lot of actors and actresses would trade a Snow Dogs appearance for one of those.

Plow King on Friday, July 16, 2004 at 8:15 AM

"The Matrix of Independent Minorities" is a better title.

Marc on Friday, July 16, 2004 at 8:49 AM

phil, the reason why Cuba Goding Jr's name isn't in the Forrest Gump cast list is because he wasn't in the damn movie. Mykelti Williamson played Pvt. Benjamin Buford 'Bubba' Blue. He's gone on to do many others films and television shows.
http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0932112/

Cuba gets mistaken for Hootie (Darius Rucker) in Jerry Maquire. He shouldn't be mistaken for Bubba. Cuba best role is stil "boy getting haircut" although you're too scared to watch Judgement Night again. Dare you to watch it then go park 5 blocks from 4th Street Live. You dumb bastard.

Phil on Friday, July 16, 2004 at 10:17 AM

I know that Mykelti Williamson played Bubba. That was plow king that went crazy.

Oh, and I came up with a better title: Bad Boy Enemy of the Minority Independence Matrix in Black

Church on Friday, July 16, 2004 at 10:31 AM

Nice Title Phil, but what about Bad Boy Matrix Blade Runners in Black and the Wild Wild Tron

Brock on Friday, July 16, 2004 at 12:53 PM

I knew Marc would come through with the callout for Bubba and Cuba, based on the fact that Mykelti Williamson was in Con-Air, Marc's favorate movie!

Tom Jones on Friday, July 16, 2004 at 1:43 PM

The I loved the 80's and 70's shows on VH1 were good for what you pointed out Phil, every one was very young when that happened. The 90's are too recent, at least for all of us to give two shits about. I agree that VH1 has gone overboard in their lack of better programming.

Brock on Friday, July 16, 2004 at 2:01 PM

Hope you all didn't party too hard this weekend because I will be returning to the 'Ville this coming Friday, and I expect a good old-fashioned Sci weekend. I should be rolling back in to town late Fri/ early Sat just in time to meet everyone at Wicks. God, I can't wait to get away from these fucking foriegners stuck in the shitty dorms over the summer. And, just in case you get a call from a weird number or restricted number that night, I have finally joined the modern world and got a cell phone.

Wrecking Crew on Sunday, July 18, 2004 at 1:31 PM

I haven't seen any hot chicks here in the dorms yet, but it's pretty sparsely populated right now. Now that I think about it, I haven't come across many hot chicks in the area period. Only one nurse in the hospital, and no chicks in the gym or around town. i guess that's another strike for these hicks down in UAB. Of course, I haven't really seen much of the city except when I was with Joanna, and anyone would pale in comparison.

Coming to you live from Montreal, the French-loving city in the northern wonderland of Canada.

Hopefully these "sexy" resteraunts live up to their name!

Wow. Thanks for straightening me out on Bubba. I would have sworn it was Cuba had someone bet me. I guess next time I should actually look and see who played the character instead of assuming. I'll just stick to making posts about Pampered Chef.

And, yes, make no mistake about it. The best part of a conference is the free alcohol. And the hookers and blackjack.

Is it not enough that he missed the greatest New Years Eve Party ever? Besides, he can still play wiffle ball with a hangover.

Burket - Don't let me down.

I'm drinking at some point this weekend. This med school thing is sure as hell putting a hurting on my drinking time. I think it's only been like once in 12 weeks since I've seriously drank. And by seriously I mean stupid drunk. Besides I'm sick of smiling and looking pretty for these damn people down here. And I'm serious about going out both nights this weekend. I may be strolling in to town late Fri/early Sat, but I want to make it out.

Shaggy has 6 jacks in 2 games. fall softball has registration up to july 31st i think. i printed the info out. as for another guy on our roster for softball, dr. ackerman asked to be on our team. He isnt actually that bad. so that is the update. drinking wiffleball and softball what more do we need.

Hopefully I'll hit a bunch of jacks so I won't have to run the bases. I haven't broken that much stuff at bars that I remember, and I blame Buckley for the worst incident.

No, Phil, I know my derogatory terms for nationalities, and frog is a putdown to Frenchies that has subsiquently been used for the French Canadians. I guess Canuck probably isn't really derogatory since an NHL team has the name, but of course it could be similar to calling a team the Redskins.

Phil on Thursday, July 22, 2004 at 9:13 AM

Ah, my apologizes. The official definition of frog is "Dreogatory term referring to anyone whose mother tongue is french." So, I guess French Canadians count. I was under the assumption that it was used by the English to make fun of the french, not french speakers.

My friend at work made it up.

Hell yes, you should apply. First of all you need a job, and secondly you can get me some Beam. If you don't do it, I may have to quit this med school thing and try it out.

I finaly get uot of htis place today, and if all goes well I may not be rolling in as late as I thought. More time to drink.

"It is clear that the Cubs' angle on acquiring Nomar Garciaparra can't work unless it's a three-way with the Diamondbacks to bring Randy Johnson to Boston." - Peter Gammons

How sick would that be? Schilling and Johnson back together again with Pedro and Derek Lowe (if everyone makes it back to form)? Then with Wakefield or someone else as a #5? It almost wouldn't be fair, but the sad thing is that the BoSOx would still find a way to lose.

I'd much rather be cursed by the Bambino than by a freaking old man and goat.

Why can't Boston or the gay ass Cubs just admit that they fucking suck instead of using excuses such as curses!

Marc on Friday, July 23, 2004 at 7:47 AM

Betting on the Cubs or especially Red Sox for the World Series or even a penant is liking betting on the team against the Harlem Globetrotters. You know they're gonna lose.

The interesting thing is that the Red Sox used to say all of Boston sports were cursed, yet the Pats have won the last two super bowls and the Celtics won a ton of titles back in the day. The Cubs had their chance last year and I thought would perform better this year. The Red Sox have the misfortune of being the same division as the Yankees, but still anything is possible is the frickin Angels have won the world series.
Why is it that baseball is in the only pro sport that mentions curses? Any thoughts on any other teams in other sports being cursed?

Wow. This is a great use of our tax money.

Jay, you are just upset that it means bigger boobs, not longer weiners on sailors.

Marc on Friday, July 23, 2004 at 8:33 AM

good calls church. generally when i think curse i think of witch doctors, voodoo, and stuff like that. not "America's Pastime." Who cares if the'yre in the same division as the Yanks. The Yankess have won a lot but not everytime, so it is possible to beat them. They're not a machine, they're human. (Like the big Russian (Dolph Lungren) in Rocky 4.) Maybe Boston just sucks at baseball. Like how Jamaica might suck a Bobsledding. But they rock at movies about it.

reader e-mails from the sports guy: http://sports.espn.go.com/espn/page...=simmons/040723

Probably the most important one:
Is there a female equivalent to the phrase "sausage-fest"? It would be inserted into sentences like: "I would never join an all-female gym. Sure, I wouldn't have to deal with guys ogling me all the time, but it would be a total [blank]." Is there a catchy phrase for this situation that I am unaware of?
--Sara Regan, Tempe, Ariz.

SG: Great question. I even sent this one out to my friends. Out of the top 100 possible answers, 100 of them couldn't be printed. In fact, nine of them would have redefined comedy as we know it. But since this Web site is owned by the Disney corporation ... well ... you know. I could come up with some generic ones, but they would end up being about as funny as one of Tammy Pescatelli's "I'm Sicilian" routines on "Last Comic Standing."

So here's what I'm hoping: People will e-mail back and forth about this, saying to each other, "Did you read Simmons' column today? What do you think the nine phrases were?" Invariably, the readers come up with nine or 10 on their own, one of them spreads, and eventually, the female equivalent of "sausage-fest" emerges in a grass-roots sort of way. Hey, I can dream.

His name is spelled Dolph Lundgren and he plays the character of Ivan Drago.

I like #2, #1 on the list. However, if 4th street live continues to grow, it would be pretty awesome to have an "entertainment district" to revitalize downtown.

Damn you EA Sports! Damn you to hell!!

i am amazingly alive, and did not die last night. I got close to getting sick but ney, I say ney. My tally of drink totals was (to the best of my memory) a 350ml of Captain Morgan's, 5 traditional Jagerbombs, a shot of whiskey, and a beer.

mowgli on Saturday, July 24, 2004 at 3:12 PM

you all missed out on watching Burket ralph outside his house, fun stuff...not as good as Brock after Thunder, none the less goodtimes!

Green Baron on Saturday, July 24, 2004 at 7:02 PM

I know the post is long dead, but Isaac Brock is the lead singer from Modest Mouse....I don't know if everyone knew that.....
So the rape allegations is most likely that, although it probably was in the Montreal headlines too.....
Oh yah...the French suck...that's all I got to say about Montreal.

Ricky Williams is retiring? what the hell

Phil on Sunday, July 25, 2004 at 9:45 AM

Two thoughts when I saw this:
1) He got busted on pot charges again, and rather face suspension and ridicule in the media, he's out of the league.

2) He's gay.

Church on Sunday, July 25, 2004 at 9:48 AM

I hadn't hear about the pot charges. He was just reaching the potential and living up to the hype from when he was drafted. But hell, what do you expect from someone who used to have Master P as an agent. Though this decision, totally fucks with the fantasy football leagues

Phil on Sunday, July 25, 2004 at 10:02 AM

A write for the New York Post (for what they are worth) wrote that Ricky Williams was sick of taking tests for marijuana, and that he'd used chemicals in the past to skirt the tests.

But Ricky has said that it was one of the many reasons he left. He said that talking to Robert Smith, who also recently retired, helped him make his decision.

Brock on Sunday, July 25, 2004 at 12:53 PM

Finally, back in America. It took some time, and a side-visit to Atlanta, but I finally made it back yesterday morning. Weird thing, my luggage didn't make it back until this afternoon. Fuck you Delta!

Sounds like you guys showed Burket a good time and didn't whore out on him, finally!

Ricky Williams is a little bitch, and if your fantasy team goal was to have him on the roster, you are a moron anyway. Priest Holmes is undoubtedly the greatest Fantasy Football Player ever, with Peyton Manning running a close second. Just check the last couple of years... those two are consistently the biggest producers. Compare that to Ricky Williams and Marshall Faulk who you never know will play, and if they do, will they perform. Screw those fuckers who don't give it their all, thats what the CFL is for.
