Favorite Songs of 2009

So of all the overplayed radio singles... these are my top 10 of this past year! There were some interesting choices... If this were Dec. of 1999 this would be a whole different kind of list! haha.

Top 10 Favorite Songs of 2009

#10: Poker Face - Lady Gaga
Lady Gaga was Pa pa pa pa poker facing on every other minute through 2009. couldn't get away from it if you wanted to. I think B101 played that shit on the morning commute!

#9: Gives you Hell - All American Rejects

AAR seems to keep strong with making their mark on that one song that lasts through the entire year. Gives You Hell was quite good for like their fourth album.

#8: If You Seek Amy - Britney Spears
I know she had two other char toppers such as Womanizer and Circus... But man, how much did you just want to sing If (F) U (U) Seek (CK) Amy (Me). Or maybe that was just me!

#7: 1,2,3,4 - Plain White T's

I think what makes this song so damn good to me was the moment when Joey was in my car and I was bustin out the lyrics to this beautiful ballad and he looks at me dead faced and says... "Dude, you like the Jonas Brothers?" In which I replied, "fuck no man, this is the Plain White T's." To which he then replied back.... "Thank God, I love this song but didn't want to sound gay singing it!" Thank you Joey... Thank you! HAHA

#6: Waking up in Vegas - Katy Perry

Katy Perry... the best... Kissed a Girl, Hot and Cold... but when Waking Up In Vegas hit the soundwaves... I was all in! Sign me up "Katy Perry Fan Club...!"

#5: I Gotta Feeling - Black Eyed Peas

"I got a feeling... that tonight's gonna be a good night... that tonight's gonna be a good good night!" Yeah... try not to smile when this song is on... Nuff Said!

#4: Russian Roulette - Rihanna

Man, Rihanna hit this world like brimstone rain... Shit was all Independence Day Esq. You hear JT dumped Beil to date her... yeah I fucking hate that guy too (I wish I was JT)

#3: Empire State of Mind - Jay Z

"Concrete Jungle where dreams are made of..." Couldn't not play this song while I was driving. Then the Fuckin Yanks had to go and ruin the whole vibe beating down the Phils in that thing for baseball causing me to burn my copy of this album and forfeiting my fandom for anything NY related!

#2: Single Ladies - Beyonce
1 Phrase says it all... "... if you liked it than you should have put a ring on it!" That YouTube video of the little girl performing every move to this video played no part in this decision of #2 despite how damn adorable it was. But the SNL skit with JT may have!

#1: Boom Boom Pow - Black Eyed Peas
What can I say about the Black Eyed Peas that hasn't already been said about Afghanistan... It's burned down and depleted. Wait... No, scratch that... They're the opposite of that. BEP just simply produce HITS! They are like me and you in that they put their pants on one leg at a time, except when they are dressed they make gold records!

Favorite Movies of 2009

So apparently making a "Best Of" list for 2009 is the cool thing to do as says every web site online. So as I usually do, I'll follow suit! So here is my first of a few (I have about 4 more hours of work today) Favorite of 2009.

Top 10 Favorite Movies of 2009

#10: Drag Me To Hell

#9: District 9

#8: Terminator Salvation

#7: Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen

#6: Zombieland

#5: Avatar

#4: Star Trek

#3: Inglourious Basterds

#2: Watchmen

#1: The Hangover

* On the flip side of things, 2012, Horsemen, Powder Blue and X-Men Origins: Wolverine were by far the worst movies... maybe ever... but def. of 2009.

** FYI - Taken would have been on this list since it was released Jan of 09 but I got my hands on the Bootleg in Dec. of 08 so I excluded it!

*** Tidbit- I haven't seen Up, 9, Where The Wild Things Are, Precious or The Hurt Locker yet and I hear they are all Very Very Good! oh, and I'm not sure what all the fuss was about Coraline cause I just wan't feeling it... AT ALL.

Babe of the Week

Well as a piggy back on Rashida and her Office ties. This week I bring you someone who I feel flies far to low under the Smoking Hot Radar! She's been a featured face at the Front Desk over at Dunder Mifflin Paper Company for the past 6 seasons.
Ladies and Gentlemen... I give you:
Jenna Fischer

Jenna Fischer is just too damn adorable. She's got the perfect girl next door vibe to keep any man licking their chops. Taking her first true role as Pam on NBC's "The Office," Jenna has stayed pretty low key thus far throughout Hollywood. She can be seen looking quite delicious in both "Blades of Glory" (the not so funny Will Ferrell film) and especially in "Walk Hard" (another not so funny Will Ferrell inspired film... John C Reilly just shouldn't be a lead!). But seeing her on each and every episode of The Office is really what keeps many tuned in. Especially now since the show has taken quite a drop on the "Funny" meter. Jenna has been nominated for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series back in 2007 for the role as Pam. I'm sure there are plenty more big screen characters that she'll be able to play in the near future. And no... she wasn't in "Drag Me To Hell" despite my deepest disbelief! Enjoy the pics.

Babe of the Week.

Joe Carr brought this one to my attention today. Now I always looked at her as a very attractive woman, and at times she can look damn hot. But overall she's definitely a very desirable lady!

This week I give to you:

Rashida Jones

Now you may recognize the face if you are a fan of the NBC show "The Office." Making her first appearance in 2007 on the critically acclaimed show as Karen, she was a fresh new face and one that stood out from the crowd at the good ol' Scranton Branch. Quickly becoming a love interest to Jim and bringing a bit of a cat fight into the show between Pam* and herself. Rashida has a very unique look. At 33, she has recently burst onto the scene with a vengeance. After her days on "The Office" dwindled down, she was immediately picked up by the newly, and apparently quite funny "Parks and Recreation." Branching off of her TV scene, Rashida was very good in a slightly overrated "I Love You, Man!" Taking a look through her Filmography courtesy of IMDB, she was apparently on 2 episodes of the "Chappelles' Show," I think I'll have to bust out my DVD's to scan through for that one. But the interest is there for this new fem, and I'm sure we will all be seeing much more to come. Meanwhile, enjoy the photos.

*- Soon to come!

As we kneel down to the Evil Empire!

It just wasn't our series to win... At no point last night did the Phillies look capable of coming out with a victory. I think it's time to erase that chalk board and start designing our emergence into 2010.

Hamels 2008 WS MVP and Lights Out Lidge were the reason for our downfall... Such a shame!

Concrete Jungle Where Dreams Are Made Of...


Series is now 3-2. The infamous Game 6... Heading back to the Bronx. Philly pulled no punches in Game 5. Especially when it came to attacking Yankees pitchers. If New York is the Bronx Bomber... Chase Utley must be Philadelphia's personal Anti-Air defense system! Boy shines brighter than the sun...

Like the Great LL Cool J once said...
"Don't call it a come back, We've been here for years!"

It's much harder to win after getting knocked down a few times! Come on Boys, pull your shit together!

1 Down 3 To Go...

Each win in this series carries its own face. Charlie must approach each game individually. Phillies must knock down 4 wins before they can be crowned champions...


Game 1 on the books. Phillies up 1-0. With the first win going to the good guys, only three wins stand in the way of the Phillies and their Repeat!

- 3 Wins to Go till we taste VICTORY!

Lets All Color by Numbers...

The 2009 World Series of Baseball, aka The Winter Classic, is upon us all. And once again our beloved Philadelphia Phillies are participating. They will face a not so beloved New York Yankee squad of overpaid, overpraised, overvalued bunch of wannabe true ball players. The Yankees are a true example of "buying success!" $208,097,414 in player salaries and 103 wins later, the Yankees were standing alone atop the MLB with the most wins in 2009. Butt...

Since the regular season of baseball is primarily pointless when it comes to who will win in the playoffs, these stats will be strictly based on playoff results.

So who will be crowned victor of the Phillies vs Yankees 2009 World Series? It's all about the numbers...

Phillies / Yankees / Advantage


Runs: 55 / 48 / Phillies

Hits: 76 / 85 / Yankees

Doubles: 13 / 12 / Phillies

Triples: 4 / 2 / Phillies

Home Runs: 14 / 14 / Tie

RBI: 54 / 45 / Phillies

BA: .261 ./ 262 / Yankees

OBP: .363 / .359 / Phillies

SLG: .478 / .441 / Phillies

OPS: .840 / .800 / Phillies


W: 7 / 7 / Tie

L: 2 / 2 / Tie

ERA: 3.04 / 2.46 / Yankees

SV: 3 / 3 / Tie

CG: 1 / 0 / Phillies

SHO: 9 / 8 / Phillies

ER: 27 / 24 / Yankees

R: 31 / 25 / Yankees

BB: 22 / 27 / Phillies

SO: 60 / 72 / Yankees

BAA: .242 / .243 / Phillies

So now that the numbers are stated, what does it all mean? Well to put it simply, if this was a Head-to-Head match up in Yahoo Fantasy Baseball, we'd be looking at an 11-6-4 Victory!

That's 11 category wins for the Phillies, 6 category wins for the Yanks and 4 category ties. Oh whats that, the Yankees have home field advantage over the Phillies due to the fact that the AL won the All-Star Game this year... oh, and that will give the Yankees an edge this series? Well sorry there kids, the Phillies didn't have home field against the Dodgers either and we know the ending to that story. What's that you say... New York is different! Lets not all forget that when Philly went into NY this year back in May that the Yankees were riding a 9 game winning streak in which they dropped to the Phillies on a Friday 7-3, squeaked out a win on Saturday 5-4 and then lost a close one, not thanks to a Brad Lidgeless save on Sunday 4-3 in 11 innings. Aaaaannnndddd... lets all remember that We didn't have Cliff "Fucking" Lee to pin against their ace of Mr C.C. Suckbathia!

So I reiterate that the Philadelphia Phillies will be your 2009 World Series Champions w/in 6 games. And I have the #'s to support it!

We are the National League Fucking Champions!

Babe of the Week!

Ok then, I'm starting to realize I don't really blog about anything important and this has strictly turned into a, lets put a hot chick up on my site for people to look at, thing. But whatever. When I find something in the world worth writing down (to myself) on this site I guess I will. But in the meantime. Babe of the Week! 500 Days of Summer was given a limited release this past weekend. "500 Days of Summer, what's that?" you may say to your self. Well its a brilliant little flick about how two random people can come together for a short period of time, 1 falling madly in love with the other while the other 1 just really isn't into it and goes their separate way. This movie is catching rave reviews and will be (in fantasy football terms) a great sleeper pick for one of the best movies released this summer. It's only a little longer than 1.5hrs so if you can squeeze some time out of your busy lives to catch this film, I am recommending it!

Your (500) Days of Summer star:
Zooey Deschanel

Zooey Deschanel is a rare find in Hollywood. Amazing attitude, free spirit, down to earth, fun, classy and, best of all, she is always herself. From appearances on talk shows to skits on SNL. Zooey and just a Gem on the screen. At 29, Zooey has had some brilliant roles in recent films. The most recent being "Summer" in the new (500) Days of Summer. Where she plays the fun, irresistible girl who can get a guy to fall head over heels for her but when it gets old, she bounces without any worry or thought of the other party. Zooey is also a musician and has quite a beautiful voice as well. She got to use some of her singing skills in Yes Man. Playing opposite of Jim Carrey, Zooey falls into the "fun, irresistible girl who can get a guy to fall head over heels for her" role yet again. Only this time she's head over heels in love too and they live happily ever after. There is just something special I feel when I watch her on screen. I mean, I think I would really want to hang out with her. I think she'd really fit in my group of friends very well and would have me laughing "hard" all the time. She looks like someone my friends would date!

She sadly also appeared in The Happening. Even she couldn't save the movie from Mark Whahlberg's bad acting and M. Night's, well, everything! She played Dorothy in a really creepy, made for TV movie, called Tin Man. She was just adorable in Failure to Launch playing the quirky roommate. She's appeared in some big time movies such as Live Free or Die, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy and All the Real Girls. But one of the biggest was opposite Will Ferrell in the Christmas Tale of ELF!

So to say the least, she's been a busy girl since entering Hollywood in one of her firsts roles in Almost Famous. She beautiful, radiant and fun. Shannon agrees on how adorable she is so I'm not alone here!

Babe of the Week

Well I missed the new episode of Entourage last night. I was going to Blog and watch at the same time. So now I've put it On-Demand and here I am Blogging. After watching the last two episodes of Entourage I was re-awaken to the Beauty that is my next Babe of the Week. She's a goddess on screen and just a drop dead piece of art that is WOMAN!

This weeks Babe is none other than:

Emmanuelle Chriqui

Emmanuelle Chriqui, born December of 77' a Canadian from Montreal. Making her first on screen debut in the infamous TV series "Kung Fu" (RIP David Carradine, you went out in style!) in 1995 and since has been in numerous small roles throughout the years. Up until 2000 she only appeared in TV Series that I never heard of. But she appeared in her first film that rings a bell to my bad movies I have watched list in "Snow Day." But she made her imprint in my obsession in a completely underrated movie "100 Girls." Movie was really good, and Emmanuelle played the "object of affection" the entire film. She truly was my object of everything. She then showed up a bit on "The O.C." and also played the lesbian Bartender in "Waiting." She was super smoking hot in "Don't Mess With the Zohan" playing opposite Adam Sandler. But what Emmanuelle may go down for in her acting career is the beautiful and enticing Sloan in the hit series on HBO "Entourage." Appearing for a good bit in the earlier seasons, Sloan then fell off the series for a season and a half. Causing much uprising among watchers (Not really, but fuck, I was upset. She's really hot and I liked looking!) So now with the new season already beginning, Sloan, I mean Emmanuelle has entered Entourage as a steady fixture once again. THANK GOD!
