Why New York tabloids and Rhode Island Natives RULE
One of the many things I miss about New York are the tabloids. Thanks to Al Gore's non-Social Security lockbox pet project - the intranet - I still get to read them.
Most notable of the Daily Rags are the gossip pages, which keep me in line with all the news regarding Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan and various other celebrity and intelligensia.
In today's New York Daily News, Lloyd Grove's Lowdown
showed a picture of Rhode Island native James Woods and his new girlfriend, Ashley Madison (click the link to see her).
Woods is 59 and graying. Madison is 20 and blonde. (I also forgot to mention that Woods is friggin' awesome.)
And for my dollar (or 50 cents, which is the cost of the paper), no tabloid stateside has the best headlines than the New York Post
There were two events yesterday that I was quite happy about: the Red Sox' 9-3 victory at Yankee Stadium, and the big bomb that went boom outside of Baghdad (you like the alliteration, don't you?) on Abu Musab al-Zarqawi's head.
was able to take both events and highlight them on their front and back pages. (the word balloon kills me)(nice of the Captain to ring the bell)
Ok, catching up on a few other things: Still have not heard from my friend and future benefactor, Mr. David Major.
I hope that my $26 million is still waiting for me because I'm almost done spending it.
I called the Chili's in OshKosh and ordered boneless buffalo wings for everyone in town.
I have a Friday playlist for you because, well, it's Friday.
No real theme to it, but I bet it would be good on a roadtrip, except for a few of the sappy tunes when you could do some heavy petting.

. It's a .zip file, so just right-click, wait a few minutes, unzip, burn, enjoy.
That's it for now...oh wait! I haven't done a YouTube bit in a while. Ok, here's a blast from the past, as detailed in the Oz blog...
On the final segment of the trip home - from LAX to JFK - United showed "Inside the Actor's Studio" with muse Natalie Portman
At the end of the show, she recited her favorite swear word - a word whose etymology can be traced to Arabic, but is used as slang in Israel.
Isn't that hot?
Enjoy your weekends.
To the next step (and the next year, which is 31 on the Corinthian You're With Me Leather
