No writing around here this week. What’s up with that?
Well, for starters, I’ve been swamped at work. Deadlines and piles of work do not lend themselves to a lot of creative writing. The time I have been able to touch fingertips to laptop have been spent over at Bright Orange Seats, where I was asked to do my first radio interview on Tuesday. Yes, it was a lot of fun. And yes, I did milk it for all it was worth. Since then, my traffic has jumped and I’ve been forced to put a little more effort into the site than usual over the last few days.
As for life away from the computer screen, there’s not all that much going on.
This Sunday is my softball championship. I’m not sure if winning that would make me really cool or an unfathomable loser. Losing would obviously provide the easy answer.
Anyway, it’s Friday, and even though I seemed to be slacking off this week, I’ll still leave you with some Dennis Bunni… oh wait. Nevermind.
Watch this instead:
Enjoy the weekend.
Well, it’s Friday, so of course that could mean only one thing. Well, it could probably mean a bunch of things. But around these parts, it always means your favorite YouTube news guy and mine… Dennis Bunnicelli. This week, he shares his thoughts on swine flu.
Of course, it would only be logical to follow that up with YouTube’s other illigetimate son, Kige Ramsey. Here’s Kige, telling you what to do to stay swine-free.
Enjoy your weekend, and uh, wash your hands, will ya?
You know you missed him, but uh, where exactly has he been the past few weeks?
You enjoy your weekend. I’ll fight off the spiders in my car. And Dennis Bunnicelli will explain what the hell happened to him. Peace, bitches.
Disney World is the happiest place on Earth.
That’s what they have been telling me since I was 7-years old. I don’t know who they are or why they insist on deciding what makes me happy, but I gotta tell ya, I think they might be on to something.
Some of my most vivd memories are from one Walt Disney World theme park or another. Maybe it helps that I’ve spent my entire life just three short hours from the entrance to Magic Kingdom, and I was a visitor almost every single year. Whatever. I had some crazy times there.
I’m also not letting Disney off that easy, though, because I definitely know about its evil, dark side.
As a camp counselor, I graced Orlando with my presence twice every summer… for ten summers. And when you spend enough time in a place, you start to see some shit.
See, Disney World is like a friend turned roommate. When you see that person just once in a while, you really only get to see his/her awesome side. Then, after you’ve spent the better portion of a year waking up in the morning to find your friend asleep on the living room couch, drooling on the throw pillows, you start to realize that he/she is not as awesome as you once thought.
Disney World is my roommate.
Spend enough time in a Walt Disney theme park and the inane tunes of absolute positivity will have your ears begging for some death metal. Pastel colors, fake smiles and talking animals are all scattered throughout the 25,000 acres of land, to remind you of one simple–yet factually inaccurate–piece of information…
You may be in a world of debt and totally incapable of forming an erection, but Mickey Mouse doesn’t give a shit. When you’re in his theme park, you are one happy mother fucker. Nevermind that your house is in foreclosure or that your wife ran away with your best friend, because there’s a four-fingered mouse standing next to a dog who talks with the same inflection as a drunken homeless man I once met on the street.
You’re happy, dammit.
What’s funny, though, is that in some strange, twisted way, you are. Once you’re inside those gates, nothing can bring you down. You have gaint turkey legs and candy apples to line your stomach and toys that light up and sing to keep your kids smiling. You really are happy… dammit.
Of course, all of this was just a long way of telling you that I’m going to Disney World for the weekend.
Enjoy the next few days. But especially enjoy this story of Dennis Bunnicelli meeting one of his fans…
Filed under: Bright Orange Seats, Dennis Bunnicelli, Florida Marlins, Must Be Friday
Once upon a time, I wrote a witty little sports blog called Bright Orange Seats. It was a fun project that gained a little bit of popularity, but when it started getting in the way of the job that actually pays for my apartment, it was time to call it quits.
Lately, with the Marlins season coming up, I’ve been thinking about whether I should start it up again. My schedule at work is getting lighter, and when the company eventually downsizes, I’ll need something to do to keep from thinking about my life going down the shitter.
I’m not sure yet, though. The season starts in a few days, so like all important decisions, I’ll probably wait until I’m drunk the night before to make up my mind. If anyone would like to try and sway my opinion one way or the other, feel free to do so in the comments section.
To hold you over until I decide whether to discuss sports again, here’s Dennis Bunnicelli talking about what an absolute douchebag Josh McDaniels is…
Ahhhh, Friday. The work week winds down, the beer starts to pour and you start to contemplate life’s most important questions. Why is the sky blue? Why is the Earth round? What would Dennis Bunnicelli say if he could only speak in 140 characters?
Perhaps he would say this:
bout to go bowl with my team and win this money bitches
Yes, Friday. The day you learn that your favorite thugged-out YouTube celebrity is on Twitter… and a Friday night bowling team.
Enjoy your weekend, folks. And if you really need another place to criticize me until Monday, check out the Flickr account. I promise it’ll have some new stuff for you to make fun of.
