Baconfest!

Baconfest was AWESOME. The best bacon-themed food I had? The Bacon Rangoons…those things were the bomb! I heard the Bacon Booty Cookies were fantastic as well…somehow we missed those!

Our good friend of the show, Branden Oliver, performed his “Viva Las Bacon” live…and killed it.Take a look here!

Nicely done Branden!

Here was another fun highlight….it’s a Mini-Elvis blowing fire out of his mouth at Hacksaw Jim Duggan. Fantastic!

Last year’s was awesome…this year’s was even better…and I am already looking forward to next years!

The Super Bowl

Holy cow…that was unexpected. I had predicted a blowout…but the other way around. No way did I think the Seahawks would be able to put up more than 23 points. However, when you get 16 just from your defense & special teams, that’s always a nice little bump.

Denver’s gameplan flat-out didn’t work. Like I mentioned on Facebook…did Eli Manning kidnap his brother…assume his identity…and then keep Peyton locked in the back of his 1997 Toyota Camry while Eli played yesterday?

Okay, enough of the game…what else is there to say? It was a complete butt-kicking.

On to the fun stuff…the Anthem was incredible…Renee Fleming set a new standard in how it’s done.

Speaking of which…can we give it up for Bruno Mars? That was the BEST Super Bowl Halftime performance since it sort of went crazy back in 2000. Live (and great) singing…no crazy special effects…and there was the sense that he was just enjoying it. I don’t understand why some people were dissing it. What else do you want?

5 minutes into Bruno’s performance, Buzzfeed had already posted a gallery about Beyonce titled “33 Moments from the only Super Bowl Halftime Show That Mattered”. I beg of you…please…stop…with the Beyonce obsession. It’s too much.

Oh, back to the game…it’s crazy how many friends I have who all of a sudden became Seahawks fans. I have friends who are die-hard Packers fans…or Bears fans…and they were dropping “12th Man!!” posts throughout the game. What? Who are you? What are you doing? So weird.

As for the commercials?

Nothing really stood out to me. I’m trying to rack my brain as to what I liked…and the only one that I can remember really liking was the Dober-hauhau one…and I have no idea what it was for…

Oh, it was apparently for Audi. The Sarah McLachlan cameo was the perfect touch.

You know, I don’t think the commercials were that bad. I think the problem is that they’re all spoiled for us already. The yogurt commercial with John Stamos would have been absolutely tremendous had it not been revealed that the “Full House Dads” had reunited for a commercial. If no one knew that was coming, it would have been even that much more AWESOME!

Philip Seymour Hoffman

The passing of Philip Seymour Hoffman really bothers me. During those times were you just New York Premiere of The Hunger Gamessort of drift off…I kept thinking about it. He seemed like such a “smart” actor…and a generally smart guy…and to fall to heroin (allegedly)? It just bothers me. It really throws a wrench into “Mockingjay” as well….it’s not like he plays a big role or anything (sarcasm)

Top 7 Philip Seymour Hoffman Movies
