posted … Tuesday night.
I have been so caught up with sports and watching sports and hearing about sports that I haven’t had time to watch the second episode, but Jeremy told me about this awesome new show called The Killing. The pilot and first season were impressive and I’m looking forward to securing some couch time to watch the second episode sometime soon. Maybe in a few months after the NHL playoffs.
After spending the week (yes, when the person you live with is putting together a pool it’s at least a week long event) talking about and watching the Masters, this Bill Simmons article was one of the best things I’ve read in a long time. I think I would have been as impressed even if my week hadn’t revolved around the Masters.
Also, as a side note, my big sister is running the Boston Marathon Monday morning. This Bill Simmons article about the event is also one of my favorites.
This is getting a ton of attention of late, but in case you haven’t seen it, check out chicks with Steve Buscemeyes.
Another dating website. I think this one is a really good idea for Jeremy because it’s based on music taste. I wonder if they have a filter for Red Sox fans.

Opening Day is 3 days away, so baseball will be the theme of today. If you don’t know baseball too well, click here for a brief history, Terrence Mann style.
The only commercial that ever inspired me to buy Nike.
So if the above two videos make me proud to be a baseball & Red Sox fan, this makes me want to cut all ties I have with Boston.
Finally, some awesome tips for your Fantasy draft, courtesy of SportsPickle.

Puma’s “After Hours Athlete” ad is pretty great. In case you haven’t seen it …
Speaking of athletes, I love the new soundtrack someone put to this little gem.
Top ten Photoshop disasters of 2010. In case you missed them before we start chronicling 2011’s.
As of 2012, meat and poultry will be getting more detailed nutrition information. Sounds great, right? Not so fast. They are only including caloric and fat information, nothing about where the meat comes from, what kind of conditions the animal was born/raised/butchered in or what the animal ingested. We still have such a long way to go and I still have to go out of my way to find meat that I’m not afraid to eat.
The Ex-Blocker. How many of us could have used this at one point in time? I also have a few friends I’d like to pass the link on to.

I know Christmas is over … but if I could have a do over, I would like to ask Santa for these pajama jeans. I mean how can you argue with a “jean” so comfortable that you can and will want to wear them while working out?! Here is the infomercial.
Holy cow. This is amazing and for the first time, minivans are COOL. Jodi Hill, the mind behind Eastbound and Down, was behind this new Toyota Sienna music video. Brilliant move, Toyota. Brilliant.
I was okay with some of the eighties fashion trends returning. Off the shoulder tops and tapered jeans were okay, as were over-sized tops and leggings. But I will not succumb to pleats, shoulder pads, or these ever again. No matter how awesome Katie Holmes tries to make them seem*.
I don’t even think I could do this in my dreams.
*a reference to her stubborn habit of peg rolling her jeans about a year ago.

If you like sports, read this chat…DJ Gallo is pretty effing funny. And as much as I love Bill Simmons, these jokes don’t feel quite as tired.
If you like sports, and hate the new york giants, watch the clip below.
Lunar eclipses are kind of sweet…not quite as sweet as total eclipses, of the heart, but this one will do.
Check out this new blog i found, it’s funny…i hear the author is great dude.

Maybe my co-writer will notice the subtle post title change, and write on passive-aggressiveness again. And yes, I do forgive her given she has been extremely busy lately…what with a new job and house. That being said, it takes all of 8-12 minutes to put one of these together. Happy Turkey week.
This seems as good a clip to start as any…
Collegehumor take on Social Network, made by other directors. Awesome stuff.
Why post Nirvana playing Smells Like Teen Spirit for the first time? Why not.
If you can deal with subtitles…watch this flick. Called “The Secret in Their Eyes,” it won Best Foreign Film at the Oscars last year; it’s amazing how good a movie can be with acting and no special effects.

After succesfully passing my comprehensive exam on Friday, which will allow me to graduate with my Master’s in 6 weeks, I went pretty big this Halloween weekend, so I kind of have of a case of the (hungover) Mondays…especially since I have an 8 page paper to write today. So I’ll use these to distract me:
Please tell me there is a program that makes it easy to loop this 2 second video 300 times…how many minutes did you get through before stopping?
Even if you couldn’t see the Comedy Central special “Restore Sanity and/or Fear” hosted by Jon Stewart & Stephen Colbert, check out the liveblog here.
This is for sports fans, and at that only ones that enjoy making fun of horrific announcing. Here is Chris Myers covering a 50 yard bomb that was almost a touchdown. He sounds as excited as a kid who gets egged and all his halloween candy taken from him on Halloween night from those local teen hoodlums. That never happened to me, and I dont have any lingering issues…promise.
