Kobe's Heel Turn?

Bill Simmons, over on ESPN's Page 2, suggests that Kobe "turn heel" and embrace his notoriety. That would work, except (yes, I'm about to pretend this suggestion was serious) that heel or face, you have to have charisma to get over. I've seen Kobe in interviews. He's got all the mic skills of Steve Blackman. Frankly, Kobe would probably come off more as Bob Holly than Hollywood Hogan if turned heel.

But then, I'm just a wrestling nerd. What do I know?

In your face, Patriots fans! Tom Brady could not save you!

And to the Steelers fans out there: you're welcome. Use the home-field advantage to your, um, advantage.

Yeah, I know, this is just the third win of the season. You gotta take your opportunities to gloat whenever they come. This is the best thing to come from this shitty season. Could not have happened to a better team.

Proof that Girls are Evil.

The question is, how does Ice Cube's assertion that "life ain't nothin' but bitches and money" fit here? Any of you math gangstas want to figure this out?

There's a live music review over at my music blog. Check it out, if'n you're so inclined. And then go buy Panopticon (which I'm listening to as I type this; another benefit of having a boss on vacation).

Say, have you heard of this viral marketing thing?

(See what I did there? Well, you will after you read the article, which requires a login because it's a NY Times piece.)

This bit from Shake on Aqua Teen Hunger Force (in the episode "Moon Master") is so ridiculous it's almost sublime:

"What's it called? Anal Blazer? 'Cause that's what you like to play, over and over, don't you? You know how to play it? I'll tell you. Level one's in a truckstop filled with lonely truckers! Level two's in a public restroom along the highway."

The fact that there would be a game called "Anal Blazer" nearly made me Danny Kaye my drink all over the place, but Shake's description of the levels just put it over the top. That, friends, is commitment to a bit.

Speaking of ATHF, Volume 3 of the series is now available. Go out and get some.
