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!
