The Office Christmas special is one of the most satisfying series finales of all time and one of my favorite television specials. The two-parter aired in December of 2003 and was commissioned after creators Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant announced that they would not be doing a third season. When it was released on DVD in the States, me and my college roommates watched it and were applauding when Dawn and Tim kiss. And when Brent gets the last laugh.
That clip of the kid who drops the Imperial March had me thinking about songs that I would like to hear sampled. I’ve always thought that this song would fit the bill nicely. Someone on Planet RBM must have the skills to pay the bills… it would make a nice Christmas gift for a certain someone….
I’m not a huge Star Wars fan, but I know Oh, Mars is considering he was contacted by MTV to star in a episode of True Life that focused on fans of said franchise, so I’m sure he’ll enjoy this even more than I do. Hope you all do too.
Jackson in healthier days, pajamas.
Michael Jackson, poor bastard and self-proclaimed King of Pop, is in bad shape? Every time I see him in the media he looks terrific! Well, the “professionals” say otherwise:
(Biographer Ian) Halperin said Jackson has been diagnosed with Alpha 1-antitrypsin deficiency, an occasionally fatal genetic condition.
“He’s had it for years, but it’s gotten worse,” Halperin told In Touch. “He needs a lung transplant but may be too weak to go through with it. He also has emphysema and chronic gastrointestinal bleeding, which his doctors have had a lot of trouble stopping. It’s the bleeding that is the most problematic part. It could kill him,” according to the (Houston) Chronicle. (Source)
Since Alpha-1 is a genetic disorder, the other Jacksons may be screwed too! Upon hearing this ugly news, Jermaine assaulted his female guard and escaped from Soul Prison.
After today, I’ll be taking a week off to visit the fam for Christmas and do the best man thing for VictorianBlood’s wedding. In 2009 we’ll be revamping the site and bringing in some fresh blood. Thank you so much for hanging out with us. Mwah.
PS: Ghostface (finally) cut a Christmas song. Check it out here.
No he’s not. Even though LAX Files was pretty disappointing, I still love this guy. In the above interview he talks Souljaboy, Jay-Z, how Cripped out his mom is, suicide, his definition of cocky, and how he broke away from most of his friends so he can enjoy life more. I did the same thing this year, only with red meat.
Talk about getting excited first thing in the morning. Uber-nerd and Lego-enthusiast Mark Borlase spent four years and about $3,000 creating this incredible 5′X10′ Hoth diorama. She’s comprised of 60,000 Lego bricks. Apparently they’re called bricks, not pieces. The diorama also features 50 LED lights that illuminate the Echo Base hangar and bacta tank, motorized AT-AT wenches, and a fully operational hanger door. Check out the Flickr set here.
Devon Harris and the Nets shit all over Dallas. Harris finished with a retarded 41 points and 13 assists. Kidd who?
There’s a new clip from Dollhouse online. In this one we see Echo (Eliza Dushku) wake up after having her memories wiped in the special memory-flushing chair. I have one of those except it’s for flushing my blow during police raids.
Yeah, James Cameron has got huge balls.
Yeah, the Chinese government has got huge (baoding) balls.
Pour one out for: Robert Mulligan, the director of To Kill a Mockingbird, died on Friday of heart disease. He was 83.
Woolworths has ruined Christmas. The British store has banned the sale of toy lightsabers because they look like guns. Like, caulk guns? It is pretty dope to hear that in certain British stores, you have to be over 18 to buy a lightsaber. They also have to do a background check under “Ponda Baba’s law.”
On Full House this morning, Little Richard made a guest appearance. He performed “Keep a Knockin‘” at a PTA rally to help save the art program at Michelle’s school. I was watching this at 6:00 in the morning, the whole time I thought I was still asleep and experiencing the greatest dream ever.
As you gather around the Christmas tree, surrounded by the ones you tolerate and love, remember that others are not so fortunate. Jake Lloyd hasn’t worked in six years.
