The lesson I draw from the splash page is that hot chicks can, through the ravages of time, be made to look like retro hot chicks.

re: 6

The Welch video is reminiscent of the Magic Christian. I presume it's tied in in some way.

How Unfogged Saved my Morning

I am a little irritable this morning because I have too much work, not enough sleep, and whacked out hormones. And a headache. Two (surely perfectly pleasant) young men sit behind me on the train and proceed to loudly discuss basketball gossip, one with a really pronounced lisp. I understand that my irritation is unjustified, but I really want to spin around and tell them to shut the fuck up. I dig frantically through my bag for my iPod to drown out the annoying voices, only to discover that the battery is dead.

Then it hits me. Unfunkked 3 is on the harddrive of my laptop! I quickly plug the earphones into the computer, fire up Windows Media Player, and escape into this funkky, funkky mix. Mood restored, day saved. Thank you Unfunkked!

I thought the story was going to end with you making a gay joke to the lisping basketball fan, or maybe saying he turned out to be SCMT.

But aren't mini-skirts ugly! I don't mean they make people who wear them look ugly, or you have to be exceptionally hot to carry them off or any of that bullshit. They are, by themselves, whoever wears them, an exceptionally ill-shaped garment.

Does SCMTim have a lisp? If so, he should go see a speech therapist because it's really irritating!*

*I am only teasing, of course. I have also been known to get exceedingly annoyed by people who swallow too loudly. Yes, clearly the fault is mine. There is surely some childhood trauma underlying this disproportionate emotional response...

The West is going to be crazy. Predictions, Tim? I think Utah is the sleeper.

As a Laker fan, I'm scared to death of the Nuggets, and particularly J.R. Smith. Only Karl's headcase-ness gives me any confidence.

Utah has such a different record on the road than at home, from which I infer some sort of gamesmanship advantage. I just took a look, and they average about 1.5 fouls more a game on the road than at home (and more, I'd guess, against playoff teams). They won't have home court advantage in any series, so I don't expect them to get past the second round, and I wouldn't be surprised if the Rockets beat them.

I expect the Lakers to beat the Spurs in the Western finals. Lakers-Celts? I have no idea who would win that matchup, but I'd have to say that the Celts would be the strong favorites.

It's beyond bizarre to think that the three teams that were the favorites to come out of the West--Spurs, Suns, and Mavs--scare me the least.

But, first and foremost, how good it must feel to be able to just up and quit. (And the ultimate answer to all those other questions is, "Oh quit being such a worry wort. It will all be fine.")

There's a story about Tony Curtis, back in New York from his first trip to Hollywood, seeing Matthau on the street and leaning out of a cab window to yell, "Hey, Walter, I fucked Yvonne DeCarlo!"

That's sharp analysis on the Jazz, Tim. Perhaps I overrate them, but they were the only team I saw really take it to the Celtics all year. Williams is great, Boozer is great, and they defend. I still have residual dread of the Spurs, maybe just because Manu is such an assassin. The Lakers I haven't really followed this year -- I haven't seen them play post Gasol...

As for the the Mavs and Suns, I agree: not scary. When was the last time a team with bad defense won the finals? (answer: the Dallas Mavericks against the Miami Heat. But aside from that...)

Make fun of the wardrobe of my youth at your peril! Except some of the hats, you can mock some of the hats. And all the Carnaby Street attire. And anything with sequinned ruffles. And Sonny's boots. Well, OK...

But you cannot mock Jimi Hendrix, whatever he wore. Hell, mock everything except the folks at Arlo Guthrie's wedding and Jimi. And my jeans and tie-dyed T.
