eminem is funny

working at the office... listening to the 'pod... and just laughed out loud at this:

Daddy's gonna buy you a mocking bird
I'ma give you the world,
I'ma buy a diamond ring for you, I'ma sing for you,
I'll do anything for you to see you smile
And if that mockingbird don't sing and that ring don't shine
I'ma break that birdies neck **
I'll go back to the jeweler who sold it to ya
And make him eat every karat, don't fuck with dad
** = when i giggled

not sure why i never heard that before. probably skip through the song before getting to the end. gotta love you some marshall mathers.

Life List #52 -- shave my head

OK, not really. I don't really have a numbered list. But I have always wanted to have the cajones to take the ol' razor to the ol' head. Turns out all I needed was a little peer pressure -- or at least a little brother pressure. Not that he pressured me. It was just too fun to shave his head and I was jealous!

HowStuffWorks is getting ready for the Sopranos, too!

HowStuffWorks logo

HowStuffWorks is a fabulous web site with almost too much information. It's easy to get sucked in, especially for a geek like me. How Batteries Work links to How MP3 Players Work links to How Podcasting Works links to How Blogs Work ... you get the picture.

Their homepage features a rotating section called "TODAY on HowStuffWorks." TODAY (Monday, April 2nd, 2007) on HowStuffWorks?? They start with How Phishing Works, move on to How 9-1-1 Works, and round it out with How the Mafia Works. You read that right.

The mafia has controlled everything from the corner drug dealer to high-level politicians. Learn all about how the Mafia is structured, how it operates and which law-enforcement methods have been effective against this type of organized crime.

So, who is Ed Grabianowski? And how does he know so much about the mafia? I've seen every episode of the Sopranos (which starts up again on Sunday!!!), but this 13-part article on La Cosa Nostra will get you in the mood for more. Personally, I'll be re-watching Goodfellas, The Godfather(s), Donnie Brasco, A Bronx Tale, Casino, maybe a little Reservoir Dogs, Heat, Pulp Fiction, The Departed (yay Marty!).

A little googling led me here. I've seen most of these (16 of 22) but have realized that I need to brush up on my Brian De Palma flicks. Oooh, IMDB says there will be a sequel to The Untouchables -- The Untouchables: Capone Rising.

Unrelated -- I'm watching The Late Late Show (as you'll remember, I ♥ TV's Craig Ferguson) and he's wishing everyone a happy passover. Says he just came from a seder at Mel Gibson's house and it was fantastic! "Say what you like, that man can break bread."

Happy passover. Here's hoping Elijah made it to your house. Had he made it to our's he could've enjoyed Anna's homemade buffalo wings! She's been talking about these for weeks -- it's been our own kind of March Madness. They were supposed to help celebrate KU's return to the NCAA final, but alas... At least we got to see them in action in the Sweet 16 and Elite 8 in San Jose. Holy crap, that was fun! (Even if they lost and the UCLA fans were annoying and amazingly loud. At least now I know how to spell U-C-L-A. Fight, fight, fight!) I'll post pictures to flickr soon.
