Kurt’s Blog: One Hit Hip Hop Wonders & Iron Man 3!

Cue Some Sabbath!

Why? Because it’s Iron Man 3 day! I’ll be heading out to the theaters as soon as the show is done with my friends (and comedians at the Funnybone this weekend) Rob Little & Tommy Ryman to see Iron Man 3. I couldn’t tell you the last time I saw a movie on opening day…oh wait, 42. Nevermind, that wasn’t that long ago…but before that, it was a looooonnng time.

I…am…Iron Man…(factually not correct…I lack all the skills, money, and mechanical know-how of Iron Man).

Actually, let me prepare for Cinco De Mayo…it’s Iron Man Tres!

Note: I was going to do a list of best songs to play on Cinco De Mayo, but it’s an incrediblye easy list.

The answer: Sammy Hagar’s “Mas Tequila”. Done & done.

In Honor of Kris Kross

Kris Kross (although, I would disagree on this) was essentially a one-hit wonder…so, that got me thinkin’/googlin’/wikipedia’in'(?), and came up with this list.

Best Hip Hop One Hit Wonders

1. Tap the Bottle – Young Black Teenagers (loved this song…still do)

2. Jump Around – House of Pain

3. Ice Ice Baby – Vanilla Icevanilla ice pool party 050812

4. Jump – Kris Kross

5. Baby Got Back – Sir Mix-A-Lot

6. Let Me Clear My Throat – DJ Kool

7. Informer – Snow

8. Slam – Onyx

9. Oochie Coochie – MC Brains

10. Wanna Be a Baller – MC Troy

11. I’m a Soulja – Ghetto Commission (anytime you mix a rap track with Bon Jovi’s “Wanted Dead or Alive”, it works)

12. Whoomp! There It Is! – Tag Team

13. I Wish – Skee Lo

14. Tipsy – J-Kwon

15. Back to Da Hotel – N2Deep

There’s a good playlist for ya…and surprisingly, not a lot of curse words…look at that…kid-friendly!

The Reese Witherspoon Dashboard Camera Footage

I could watch this 10-11 times and still crack a smile. I love the “Now I’m anti-American?” rant…oh, and that her husband, towards the end, tries to distance himself from even knowing her. This is better than most Cops episodes!

This is Ridiculous

Susannah Collins, the reporter for the Blackhawks had this slip-up…

She says “sex” instead of success (she does go back to correct herself)…anyways, she was let go of the network yesterday. They said it was unrelated, but they let her go 2 days after a slip-up? It doesn’t take a genius to put 2+2 together though. So let me get this straight…actors can “accidentally” say swear words, and there’s no problem, but a reporter stumbles, and says “sex” instead of “success” and that’s enough to boot her? Ridiculous.

RIP Jeff Hanneman

Jeff Hanneman, along with Kerry King, founded the rock group, Slayer. There was about a month in high school when I really tried to like Slayer, but couldn’t. Also, I think my dad began getting worried.

AWESOME is as AWESOME does!
