Some of you may know David as Buster Poindexter, one-hit-wonder extraordinaire known for the party anthem "Hot, Hot, Hot."
Others may remember him as the goofy cab drivin' Ghost of Christmas Past in the Bill Murray movie Scrooged.
However you remember this delightful chap, it should always be considered a fact that looking like him is never a good thing. And if you happen to be a woman while looking like him? Well, I suppose you had better have a very...VERY...sweet spirit.
Furthermore, what's with those Taco Bell radio-mercials that keep featuring anthropomorphized menu items?
You've all heard 'em. Burrito's going to the psychiatrist cuz they taste so frickin' good, or Fruitista Freeze drinks hitting on the "cute martini" by the pool. Everytime I hear those ads I wanna drive my vehicle into an oncoming semi, but whenever I try, I always end up in the Taco Bell drive through. I guess I'm not the only one with the love/hate relationship to the Bell's advertising:
Speaking of fast food, as we were on our way to the Burtenshaw Fam Reunion (which was great by the way! Good to see everyone there, especially all you Gallops under one roof!), we stopped by KFC. My dad, being the diabetic that he is, ordered a "Mega-Drink" to go with his chick'n. When they handed the drink to him, I literally thought it was the bucket of chicken that we ordered. The damn thing had a HANDLE on it! It was by all intents and purposes, a MEGA drink. God Bless America...I guess.
And finally, last night I took my bros to their first true rock show ever, as we hopped over to Salt Lake's Gallivan Center for a free Clap Your Hands Say Yeah! show.
By far one of my favorite groups in the last few years, their first self-titled album came out in 05, and is currently sitting at #4 on my list for that year. Their second album, Some Loud Thunder, came out last year, and you can see my thoughts on that here. Definately not a group for everyone, but if you are a fan of the Talking Heads, you just may like. The opening band was a group called Delta Spirit, and they were very impressive. Their album comes out August 26th I believe, I do suggest checking them out. As for the show itself, both bands were fantastic, but the "free" price naturally attracted meat heads from around the state to mosh at the first sign of a musical note, whether they know the group or not. So, most of the time was spent fighting off the hordes and protecting the bros from falling crowd surfers (we did sucker punch many a surfer), but twas an adventure. Never before have I seen such an easy going band induce so much violence and sexuality. Not the best looking of guys, (indie bands usually aren't) but we did come to the conclusion that lead singer Alec resembles a better looking version of Ben Folds. We took no pics, but some media did, if I can find those sometime, I shall post.
In the meantime, clap your hands
