McKayla and I are not impressed.


If you waste as much time on the internet as I do, you’ve probably seen the McKayla is not impressed meme. Perhaps you even submitted a post to the blog. I have submitted several (What can I say? This is the kind of stuff I obsess over). My Peanuts one even made it. Yay!

But what happened to all my other submissions? Some ideas I’ve had, I’ve seen posted by other people days after I submitted them (great minds think alike). Maybe there’s a backlog, or maybe they didn’t go through, or maybe they’re saving them up for a grand finale, or maybe they’re just lame… Anyway, I’m tired of waiting for them to show up (or not show up). So here they are:

It’s Your Friday Five!

Once again I tossed C&R’s Friday Five out to the C&Rmy, and here’s what threw back.
It’s your Friday Five!


Booze Cruise! The fourth annual family booze cruise is tonight! And since my family actually gets along really well it’s always a lot of fun! It combines all of lifes greatest pleasures. Food! Booze! Old people dancing to Lady Gaga! Here’s a picture from last year. It was raining and we were all soaked by the end of the night, but we still had a great time! Craig


Ummm my new blog post feat. Michelle M., Adam and Polt is great. Enrico


Christian Bale Is At Your Party Kristen


What made my week? Being mentioned TWICE in one C&R post: My name was uttered by a cute twinkie and my ass had a $100 bill sticking out of it. What could make ANY week better than that? Polt


Scary Smash: The first episode of Written by a Kid. A kid’s monster story is brought to life by some people you might recognize. Ryan


Watering my lawn. We came home from vacation and our front lawn is absolutely dead. We are in a drought situation here and the lawns are brown, brown, brown. Weirdly my fanatical neighbour (we share a tiny front lawn) has not been watering it. We have no water shortage so the city has actually started asking people to water their lawns so if there is fire there is less dry grass to go up. So last night I bought a new hose and today my landlord replaced my spigot in the garage and I watered my grass so if I keep it up every day I’ll have new green grass soon. I hope.

Honest to god, it looks like the grass on the left but with a smattering of green weeds. Tam


Now that I’m all caught up with Breaking Bad (sadness), I need something new to fill the empty hours of my existence. Harry and I just started watching Dexter. We’re almost done with Season 1. So far it’s been entertaining. Here’s a quiz to find out which Dexter character you are. My results were Vince (which I don’t agree with – but, whatever). -Michelle


It’s Your Friday Five!

Here’s this week’s crowdsourced Friday Five!


Breaking Bad! How did I not know how great this show is?? AMC was having a marathon of Breaking Bad beginning with the first episode, so Harry and I decided to watch and see if we liked it. And it’s awesome! It’s been all Breaking Bad all the time around here. I’m going to be sad when we catch up and we only get one a week. So, if you’re not watching, you should start, yo. -Michelle M.


A Conversation With My 12 Year Old Self: 20th Anniversary Edition. This is great. I love the condescension to himself. -Ryan


Frank Ocean‘s Bad Religion on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. I just discovered his music last week, and I’m excited to see him promote his new album with a performance of an unambiguously gay song. -Ryan

Unfortunately WordPress doesn’t allow embedded video from the Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, so please watch the video here: http://www.latenightwithjimmyfallon.com/video/frank-ocean-bad-religion/1408858


One of my favorite things this week was air conditioning! Especially in the bedroom where, coupled with a fan, I was pleasantly cool and comfortable during sleep while the world outside cooked in overnight temps in the high 80s! God bless the inventor of air conditioning! -Polt


The Rockie Mountains. They are as amazing in real life as in pictures. Granted, not as much wildlife as I’d hoped, but still an amazing sight everyone should see once in a lifetime. The 2000km round trip drive is worth it. -Tam


Earlier this week, I got something that brightened my entire week: A post card from Vancouver! I LOVE getting postcards from people when they’re on vacation and Tam is great at doing this. Just like this time. Although when she sent me one from San Francisco, it had a half-nekked guy on it. NOT that I’m complaining about this one being just a scenic landscape. nope, not at all. -Polt


And finally a video that has been making the rounds this week, it’s Paris-based electro new wave pop band The Aikiu, performing Pieces of Gold. I’ll let the (NSFW?) video speak for itself! -Adam


Craig’s Runners Up: Anticipation for the season premiere of Breaking Bad this Sunday, Tara’s sexy vamp outfit on True Blood, air conditioning, Lord of the Rings LEGOs, Amy Poehler, and Hardcore gay pornography.

What’s Your Friday Five?


It’s The Friday Five!

I just looked at the calendar, and ya know what I found?  It’s Friday.  And here at C&R, that can only mean one thing.  We’re all going to sing Rebecca Black songs!  It’s time for the Friday Five:

1. The New TV Season!  Nearly all of the new shows this season are sucking some major shit… but Terra Nova was pretty good.  Did you watch it? (Yea, yea, it’s sci-fi on Fox so I give it about half a season before they cancel it.)  To make up for the lackluster crop of new shows, there’s plenty of great returning series that I’m excited about.  Breaking Bad has been breathtakingly amazing!  Plus It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Parks & Recreation, Fringe, Happy Endings, and Modern Family are all going strong.  And I still love Glee, no matter what you say!

2. Andy Rooney is stepping down from 60 Minutes at the tender age of 472.  Slacker!  I hate lazy people that decide to retire early.  They’re all so smug and rich.  Ugh!  Hate that!  And who is Andy Rooney, anyway?  I’m 31 … does anyone my age watch 60 Minutes?  After a little bit of research, I’ve discovered that he’s a crotchety old geezer with ridiculous eyebrows.  Jesus, man!  Trim your forehead bush!  Here’s some funny videos that make fun of Andy Rooney:

3. Taking personal days off of work is pretty great!  I’ve worked at the same company for about 50 years, and I don’t think I’ve ever just taken a personal day.  I’ve pre-scheduled  ‘personal time’ before, but I’ve never just called out of work without lying about an illness.  “Hey, it’s Adam … I’m going to take a personal day today.  Call me if you need me … I’ll see you tomorrow.”  It’s great!  You should try it!  I did it on Wednesday, so I could take a nap in the afternoon before training my way to NYC to have dinner with Mr. Sombrero and a friend.  By the way, my favorite (made up) sick day excuse: “Hey it’s Adam.  I’m going to take a sick day today.  I’ve been up all night … the diarrhea is just awful.  I must have food poisoning or something.  It’s all over the walls of my apartment.  I think it might even be on the ceiling.  Oh God!  I gotta go!  See ya tomorrow!”  I actually did that.  It received a few hearty chuckles.

4. Beards. I find beards on guys to be incredibly sexy.  And I mean facial hair — not a gay guy’s fake girlfriend that’s on him.  Just to clear that up.  Anyway — I’ve never really had a beard for more than a couple weeks before.  I always end up getting frustrated (because they’re either itchy or begin to act like a drool sponge when I’m sleeping) but I’m totally over my beard’s itchy/sponginess.  All you gotta do is wipe your face off when you wake up.  Use an absorbent material like a paper towel or your boyfriend’s sheet.  It works great!  Yea, so I’m rock’n a beard right now.  And I look goooood.

5. Apples are in season!  Woohoo!  With the beginning of autumn comes apple season.  Yay, cheap delicious fruit at the grocery store!  My three favorite apples are: 1. Jazz, 2. Honeycrisp and 3. Fuji.  Someone bake me some vegan apple crisp with a side of vegan apple pie!  Yum!  I hope that apartment that Tam’s renting in NYC next weekend has an oven … so she can bake for me!  Yay!

That’s it bitches!  My five favorites of the week are: TV, Andy Rooney, Taking Personal Days, Beards and Apples!  What a loverly assortment of favorite things.  I’m totally more creative than that queefing madwoman or that other chick that doesn’t read C&R.  Runners up this week: free food, reading, regularly cleaning your toilet, bursts of energy, fancy nail clippers, my Kindle, exclamation points, masturbating and hardcore gay porn.  Woohoo!

What’s your Friday Five?  Tell me in the comments!

The *REAL* Friday Five

Welcome to the Friday Five, where I examine my five favorites of the week!

Welcome one and one (1+1 = the total readers of C&R) to the Friday Five!  Don’t be fooled by imposters!  Ladies and gentleman, this is the genuine article — the real  McCoy!  And now, without further ado,  let’s get this show on the road!

Kathy Griffin is awesome.  Whether she’s judging toddler pageants, getting banned from tv shows, trashing celebrities, or begging the world to accept her as one, she’s just plain awesome.  This week I finished her book, Official Book Club Selection: A Memoir According to Kathy Griffin. It was funny, honest, and surprisingly frank about her personal life.  I laughed, I cried, I fell asleep while reading way too many copy and pasted emails from her fake boyfriend, Steve Wozniak.

Another person who’s awesome?  How about Mikey?  Mikey did a great job with the blog while I disappeared for a week … and I think deserves a round of applause!  That’s right, please clap.  More.  A little more.  That’s good (we don’t want it to go to his head).  But seriously — thanks for minding the shop while I was toasting on the beach!

And while there was a warm breeze blowing last week during my freckle explosion, this week it was cool and wonderful outside!  I’m the first guy to insist that I hate weather (talking about it, whining about it, feeling it), but if weather was always this beautiful, I might change my mind.  Turn off the A/C, open up the windows, and feel the breeeeeze.  Ahhh what a lovely few days here in New Jersey!  If I wasn’t so busy this week, I’d be out on my bike or hiking the local trails.  But alas, I gotta work to pay for the rent and kitty kibble.

And while working, ya know what I was watching?  Breaking Bad.  I started the series over the weekend while working on a freelance project, and I’ve been OBSESSED with the series every day since.  Who knew that Malcolm In The Middle‘s Bryan Cranston could be so good?!  Even Aaron Paul is sorta cute when he’s not jamming needles in his arm.  And RJ Mitte steals almost every scene he’s in.  Seriously, if you haven’t seen this show … you need to watch every single episode in rapid succession, immediately!

AND my final five of the week?  Animals.  But not just any animals — smart animals.  Like cats and squirrels.  (Not dumb dogs.)

Cat Lassie knows that chubby Timmy isn’t worth his time at all.  Why waste your energy when you can take a nice nap?  Maybe if Timmy was as smart as Cat Lassie, he wouldn’t have gotten his round little belly stuck under a fallen tree.

Mission Impossible squirrel runs the obstacle course way better than any of those stupid people on Wipe Out.  Clearly he is far superior to all humans.  (Unlike mean deer!)

That’s it my friends!  My Friday Five is made up of Kathy Griffin, Mikey, cool weather, Breaking Bad and smart animals!  It’s an odd assortment this week … but hey, don’t judge me!  This is the crap that I liked the most this week!  So how about you?  What’s your odd assortment of wonderful things for the week?  Count to five in the comments!
