The Passion of the Weiss

Sometimes I rhyme slow, sometimes I rhyme quick. But most of the time, I don't rhyme.

The Royal Rumble Part 2

Continuing my epic Stylus series of Cinematic Comparisons that no one asked for, my essay contrasting Revenge of the Nerds and National Lampoon's Animal House is now up for your reading pleasure. Please peruse it and make me feel whole.

Waste time here.

Needless to say, the decision was tough to make, but I'm proud of the way the column turned out, if nothing else because any article that has the categories of best party, best gratuitous use of nudity and best use of marijuana is something I can stand behind. And if you missed it the first time, here's my first Vs. column, where I compare Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure and Back to the Future.

I Am Fuel You Are Friends has some MP3's of new Brit export, Amy Winehouse whose album Back in Black is much much better than I ever would've expected. As Ian Cohen so eloquently put it, "I usually don't fuck with white girl R&B, but a good way to counter that is to: a) be a raging alcoholic and b) like Ghostface."

Alex Blagg, who was formerly one of the Net's finest bloggers before high-tailing it to the more lucrative pastures of Best Week Ever, has compiled The Best of his Best Year Ever. As you might expect, they are all very very funny.

Captain Handsome of Captain Bobsled, Handsome Commando moves to LA and enlightens us on the weirdness that is LA if you're a recent transplant.

Speaking of the weirdness of LA, Franklin Ave. tells you everything you'd ever need to know with his discovery of local Chuck E. Cheese's that have VALET PARKING!

Nerd Litter has MP3's and a very nicely written review of Passion of the Weiss approved Philly rappers Clean Guns.

Oh Word has the "5 Songs to Smoke To That Your Weeded Ass Forgot"

Thanks for the link that had the added bonus of making me laugh. That's generally *my* philosophy on white girl R&B too, oddly enough.

The best thing about this post is that link to the Back To The Future/ Bill & Ted's article - I've watched both more than is cool to admit. You're bringing sexyback to both movies with those musings.

Booger said the Omega Mus were a bunch of cows, not pigs. Apparently, fact checking is not part of the regular routine at Stylus.

I beg to differ...not in the version I saw...i thought it was strange too and had always thought he said cows...consult your local DVD rental house and see for yourself

Oh I forgot to mention: awesome.

Animal House by a longshot. Not even close.

In the end, the Nerds are a bunch of unlikeable, smug jerks, whereas the Animal House guys want to do their own thing and bring about total anarchy in the process. I am stunned (stunned!) that you give Nerds the soundtrack edge, and while Hoover was nothing special, we all know that Eric Stratton was the real power in the Delta House and way more fun the Louis Skolnick.
