Fave Friday – Teenage Crushes

May 14, 2010

Playboy Magazine in 3DSo supposedly, some magazine by the name of “Playboy” is jumping on the 3D bandwagon and coming out with a 3D edition of its own some time today. Playboy? I’ve never heard of it. What’s it all about? *grin*

In honor of this magazine I’ve never heard of, I was gonna ask you guys for your fave mags of all time, but we kinda-sorta did that one already. So instead, let’s focus on what every snotty-nosed teenager does what he reads this type of magazine: falls in love. In this case, it’s with Hope Dworaczyk.

Crushes. We’ve all had ’em. Not with Playboy models per se, but growing up with our raging hormones (yeah, I’m talking to you ladies too! 😛 ), we’ve all secretly (or not so secretly) had our eye on that cute girl/guy in our 5th period history class. (Dear lord, I’m dating myself!) Or perhaps we fell in love with that kid actor on the cover of Tiger Beat magazine, or that cool singer on MTV.

Whoevahz!

Just share your list and share your list good with the rest of the WWE `ohana. We promise not to judge… much! 8)

In no particular order, here are some of mine that I can remember, off the top of my head…

* Alicia Silverstonewhat ever happened to her anyway? Guess this site answers our questions.
* Patricia FordI was actually almost signed on to help her do her official web site, but things kinda fell through. That might’ve been fun eh?
* Pamela Anderson (NSFW) – at least until she got all crazy. Hehe!
* Danica McKellar“Wonder Years”! I always wanted to be “Kevin”! She’s actually a math nerd now!
* Christina ApplegateDem years on “Married with Children”… ’nuff said!
* Girl in my 7th grade math class! – Shhh! LOL!
* Girl in my college history class! – too bad she didn’t know I existed! LOL!

I know, lots yeah!? Da worst part is I know I’m missing some. Bahahaha! Nah, not dat bad… I think!

BTW, do you guys know what a “unicorn” is? My co-worker says that a “unicorn” is someone that you’ll always have feelings for, no matter how long it has been. Is it true that we all have that one “unicorn” in life???

Talk to me!
* What are your thoughts of Playboy Magazine going 3D?
* Post your list of crushes (during your teenage years) in the comment area below! Can be celebs or peeps you know IRL.
* What do you think of the “unicorn” theory? Do you have your own unicorn?

Hijack This!
* Surprised that Cleveland lost to Boston yesterday? What do you think of Bron Bron’s future in Cleveland? How do you think Boston stacks up against my boys in blue (Orlando)?
* Thoughts on Michael Lynche’s departure from American Idol? Think he has a future in music?
* Big weekend planned?

Have a happy VH07v Friday (and weekend) y’all! Shooooooots! 🙂

Fave Friday: Sports

April 9, 2010

First thing’s first. As an MMA fan, I would be remiss if I did not mention tomorrow’s big UFC card that will showcase two of our very own, local, Hawaii boys: Hilo’s BJ Penn and Maui’s Kendall Grove.

World Wide Ed
Local Boys: Lightweight Champ BJ Penn (left) and Middleweight Contender Kendall Grove (right)

Lightweight champ BJ Penn (remember him?) will be defending his belt against top contender Frankie Edgar, while middleweight standout Kendall Grove will take on wrestler Mark Munoz. See bottom for all the details.

A-ight with that outta the way, let’s get today’s Fave Friday show on the road. Now I know the title says “Sports”, but for those of you who aren’t big fans of the stick and ball kine games, feel free to list “Activities” like hiking or swimming, etc. Here’s my list:

Fave Sports to Watch:

* Baseball – Sooooo happy the 2010 season is under way again! Go “pills” right uncle jimmy? 😛 Don’t know what it is, but I could just sit there and watch a whole game without getting bored at all.
* MMA – I used to be all crazy widit and watch every second of every event, but now, with limited watching hours in my day, I pretty much just focus on the UFC, WEC and some Strikeforce events with spot watching of the other ones like Bellator. Even then, I fast forward through the boring fights. I really do miss HDNet and their MMA coverage, especially with Dream. BTW, while we’re on the topic of MMA and local boys, don’t forget to support Brad Tavares who is reppin’ Hawaii on this season’s cast of the Ultimate Fighter, Wednesday nights at 7PM on Spike TV (Oceanic Cable 559 or HD 1559).
* Basketball – Orlando’s my team, but I’ll watch good matchups sometimes. UH is fun watching live, but it’s been really depressing the last few years. 😦
* Football (I guess) – only to follow my fantasy players. LOL! Live games at UH are fun too, but I like the tailgating more! 😛
* Boxing – used to watch a lot, until MMA came along and killed it! RIP. 😉

Fave Sports/Activities to Do:

* Snowboarding – snowboarding is life. Period.
* Jiu Jitsu – don’t get to roll as much as in the past, but the cognitive part of it is soooo interesting to me.
* Baseball/Softball – my first sport ever = my first love.
* Basketball – played a lot of hoops in high school and college, but kinda slowed down later in life. I should get back into it again.
* Swimming – ever since training for the Tinman, I’ve been itching to get back in the water on the regular. Not only is it a good workout, but you get a mean tan to boot.

So what sports or activities do you like to watch/play? Holla!

In other sports-related news, what do you think of Nike’s new commercial with Tiger Woods, using his dad’s voice as the narrative?

UPDATE:
Just got shown the new 3-D Channel on Oceanic Time Warner Cable channel 1217 and, lemme tell ya, it looks pretty mean! If you have a new HD 3-D television set, pop on your 3-D specs, turn them on, and tune to channel 1217 to watch some cool, On Demand content – including coverage of the Masters – in crystal clear 3-D. I sound like an infomercial don’t I? 😛

Where In Hawaii is Edward Sugimoto? – May 20, 2009

May 20, 2009

A-ightch’all! I know it’s Where In Hawaii Wednesday, but we gotsta dish American Idol right quick. What did you think of last night’s performance? Who did you think did better? How did you have your round by round scoring? Who do you think will take it all? Who do you WANT to take it all?

Overall, I thought it was a so-so show. I anticipated Adam Lambert to have that “moment”, but he really didn’t. Kris Allen’s first two songs were pretty smoove, but his 3rd one left something to be desired. Actually, I think both of their 3rd songs were let downs. There were moments in Adam’s performances when I started growing tired of it (his style). Still trying to figgah out who will sell more records, and my vote is still with Allison Iraheta. 😛

Now… on to tha bidness at hand… Where In Hawaii yo!

Last week’s pic was supposed to be a hard one, but yet again, you buggahs never cease to amaze me. Syxx was just the second person to chime in, and, low and behold, got it. What the!?!? I’m hoping that this week’s one will pose a slight problem for at least the first 3 of you, 😛 but if I were a guessin’ man, I’d bet that it’s gonna be another easy one. We shall see…

Spank Me! I’ve Been Naughty…

May 18, 2009

Spank was the only word in that title that remotely relates to what I’ll be talkin’ ’bout today, but I was hoping that the rest of it would lure you on in. Since you’re here, reading this gibberish, I think it worked. Muhahaha!

OK, so I’ve been watching a lot of sports lately. My Magic are moving on to the Eastern Conference Championships (sayonara Boston!), there’s been some sick action in the MLB, and then there’s always MMA.

One thing I’ve noticed (and experienced), is this ritual we have of spanking each other on the butt after every good play. Where in the heck did this come from and why in the heck did it start? Can you imagine the look on the dude’s face when another dude spanked him on his behind for the very first time in history!? There may’ve been some punches thrown then. Ahahaha!

I can understand the high-five, the arm bash, the chest bump, and even the occasional hug when the adrenaline is a pumpin’, but how one testosterone laden man’s open hand can touch another testosterone laden booty is beyond me. Yet, I see it all the time, without even a second thought. Heck, in the heat of the moment, I’ve even done it or received it with glee!

Is this wrong, and if not, where do you draw the line? Can a male coach do this to his female athletes without worry of sexual harassment? Is it just wrong for a teammate to add an extra pep or squeeze to the booty slap – after a REALLY good play – for extra emphasis? I’ve actually seen one dude kiss another dude on the lips after a grueling MMA match. WTH!?!? That one had me baffled and in stitches all at the same time that I just had to rewind my DVR like 5 more times just to make sure I saw it correctly.

As always, I’ve gone off on a weird tangent, but I just thought I’d throw this one out there. I can’t be the only one axeing these questions can I? 😛

Strange Noises In the Potty

May 5, 2009

A recent trip to the little boy’s room made me recall a humorous conversation/debate I had with wifey and her friends a while back. At some point during that conversation, it took a downward spiral (probably thanks to me) as we discussed the riveting topic of bathroom etiquette. Curiously, I axed the shy sistahs if they actually made “noise” when handling’ their bidness at a public restroom.

You should’ve seen the cold stare (not to mention the deafening silence) I got from that one. Sheez.

Upon returning from the death stare and silence, they asked me, “Why!? Do YOU!?!?”

Now if you know anything about me, I’m all about honesty. No shame! So I gave it to them:

“Of course! Why not!? I don’t know any of these people, and, even if I did, who cares? It’s human nature! It’s unhealthy to hold it in!”

[insert more cold stares and silence in addition to crinkled noses and “Ewwwwwws!”]

I continued…

“BUT… at work it’s a different story. If somebody saw me going in, or they know I’m in thurr, I try and hold back shmall kine.”

There’s just a different set of rules for work potty usage no? Ya gotsta stay professional up in the heezy. I don’t exactly want the trumpet to blow while one of the execs sits in the stall next to me. That’s just weird. Plus it might affect my year end reviews. 😉

There’s also a timing strategy involved. (Eh, no laugh! I know you got the same strategy! *grin*) You gotta make sure that anybody in the bat’chroom with you is gonedos before you make your grand exit. There’s nothing worse than playing a virtual virtuoso of noises in the stall, only to step out to a bunch of glaring/inquisitive co-worker eyes who were wondering who that Dizzy Gillespie-wannabe was tooting in the stall. LOL!

Don’t get me wrong. I’m not exactly a noise maker extraordinaire, but sometimes ya just gotsta let loose, ya heard? After all, it’s not very good for your health… 😛

(… I still can’t believe I just wrote about this topic. Apologies… 8) )

Talk to me…
* Do you make noise?
* Is your strategy different at work than it is in public?
* How about at home? In front of your spouse/mate/roommate/parents?
* What about farts? Same rules apply?
* Any other bathroom etiquette rules you live by?
* Is this entire blog just wrong?
