Tube Steak

This had my cracking up, I have to watch the Boondocks more often.

Friday Face Off...

This is a new column that I planned on debuting a while ago. The goal was to take similar things and compare and review them head-to-head, every Friday.

The original "Face Off" was going to be between The The Angry Whopper that I reviewed a month ago -VS- The Spicy Baconater, but they discontinued the Baconator so, so much for that.

Ron Howard: Actor, Director, Producer, Video Hoe.

Shout out to Jamie Foxx for getting several Academy Award winning and nominated actors to appear as human props in a silly video for a pop/party "song" about getting drunk.

Tapped Out

I saw a story in the LA Times about this dude who was selling NY tap water for a $1.50 a bottle...No, seriously.

And I was planning to hate and talk about how stupid people are (especially the people in NY who are actually buying and drinking this moments after they bathed and brushed their teeth with it for free in their house) and how ridiculous this world is in general in regards to consumerism and blah, blah, blah, but the more I think of it, I'm not mad at this at all.

…and that's no bologna pt 2

(Concluding my last minute look at the Academy Award nominees and my completely ill-informed, to the point of being ignorant (so don't take much stock in them), predictions of who should win)

So that's what that means?

This is the corniest shit ever.

President, Please...

I don't know what to say about this.

…and that's no bologna

The Oscars® are Sunday and everyone's got an opinion on who's going to win what. Well given that I've seen none of the Best Picture nominees and only one of the performances nominated I'm pretty much in the dark this year.

I'm like that guy who knows a guy whose cousin once delivered a pizza to Oprah when she was still doing her local gig in Chicago. Yeah, I'm pretty sure that this is going to be the least informed Oscar™ opinion piece you read all year. But if you come to Fish & Spaghetti for your Oscar© buzz, then well…

Best Supporting Actress Nominees: Amy Adams (Doubt) Taraji P. Henson (The Curious Case of Benjamin Button), Penelope Cruz (Vicky Cristina Barcelona), Viola Davis (Doubt) and Marisa Tomei (The Wrestler)

Who I Want To Win: I'm really torn. I want to encourage Marisa Tomei's excellent decision to pick strong roles that just to happen to require a significant amount of nudity (c'mon, make it three years in a row!) and I sort of have a smidgen of a crush on Amy Adams, almost. But Taraji P. Henson will always have a place in my heart. Still, I'm going with Viola Davis. I've dug her TV work and what I've seen with her film stuff.

Plus, I heard she blows Meryl away in the scene they share.

Who I Think Will Win: I think I picked right on this one. I really think that Viola Davis will get it.

Best Supporting Actor Nominees: Heath Ledger ( The Dark Knight), Philip Seymour Hoffman (Doubt), Robert Downey Jr. (Tropic Thunder), Michael Shannon (Revolutionary Road) and Josh Brolin (Milk)

Who I Want To Win: This one isn't easy either. I've been a fan of PSH for over a decade and I love the unnervingly creepy Michael Shannon (and they both killed in Before the Devil Knows You're Dead). Josh Brolin and Robert Downey Jr both won me over with their work in recent years. Still I've got to go with Heath Ledger, it was the only performance I've seen after all. Plus it truly was an amazing performance. (But if Heath wasn't here I'd go for Michael Shannon.)

Who I Think Will Win: How does Heath Ledger not win this one? It'll be the ultimate sign of disrespect.

It'd be like if the Academy got some cheap prostitute and had sex on Heath Ledger's grave. With their socks on.

Best Actress Nominees: Kate Winslet (The Reader), Angelina Jolie (Changeling), Anne Hathaway (Rachel Getting Married), Meryl Streep (Doubt) and Melissa Leo (Frozen River)

Who I Want To Win: Melissa Leo, straight up.

She's part of the reason I'm in Baltimore (she was on Homicide: Life on the Streets, which drew me to this burg) and I think she's an excellent actress. She's why I want to see this indie flick. I've been lusting Angelina since Hackers,

but Melissa Leo deserves her moment in the sun.

Who I Think Will Win: I want to say Kate Winslet. She's O-fer. But I hear that the movie isn't that strong. Meanwhile Anne Hathaway is the reason Rachel got so much attention. I'm going with Anne Hathaway, as a sort of "sorry your love life is so royally screwed, but at least here's some professional recognition."

Best Actor Nominees: Mickey Rourke (The Wrestler), Richard Jenkins (The Visitor), Frank Langella (Frost/Nixon), Sean Penn (Milk) and Brad Pitt (The Curious Case of Benjamin Button)

Who I Want To Win: I dig all of these guys. OK, I actively dislike Mickey Rourke, but that's mostly because of The Pope of Greenwich Village. Ordinarily I'd roll with Pitt or Penn just based on GP, but I'm rooting for Richard Jenkins.

I was addicted to Six Feet Under and I'm a fan of I Heart Huckabees and actually if I think about it, I've never seen him in something that I didn't like. Yeah, it's Richard Jenkins all the way.

Who I Think Will Win: I really think this is a two man race. It's Penn vs Rourke. I think that any other year they'd give it to Rourke because Hollywood loves a redemptive tale and voters would hope that, should their skeletons at some point fall out of their respective closets, they'd be allowed the second chance that Rourke got.

However I think it's Sean Penn for two reasons. 1) The passing of Prop 8 means that Hollywood probably feels the need to make some amends to their homosexual compatriots.

And secondly, Mickey Rourke making out with Evan Rachel Wood is just a bad move. Sort of like how the Academy Award Nominated Norbit destroyed Eddie Murphy's Dreamgirls buzz. Sean Penn by a nose.

Pt.2 of the least informed Oscar© predictions coming soon. Like Saturday.

A Very Special Episode of "That Pinky Ring Shit"

Remember in the glorious 80's when sitcoms, and even cartoons, often soft-balled some social commentary or a PSA straight into the program? No? Well they did.

Often, these tidbits were stowed away at the end of the episode GI Joe style

Taste Like Congestive Heart Failure...

So I was lurking around the web, looking for randomness to put on FishAndSpaghetti (and by the way, in a few weeks it's not gonna be so random in here, I have a plan, I promise, so stay tuned) and I spotted a site called This Is Why You're Fat, a picture site that features outlandishly unhealthy food items, some made up and submitted by people around the internets and some actually sold (and bought and eaten and more than likely puked up) in restaurants around the country.

Solange > Beyonce

So I stumpled upon these pictures of Beyonce Knowles' little sister Solange at fashion designer Toni Maticevski's show on Monday in NYC and it occured to me that Solange is hotter than Beyonce to me.

And it's not just because Solange is wearing a see through top either.

Joe Budden - In My Sleep

This is the new single from Padded Room, his new album which is going to be available on Amalgam Digital on February, 24th.

To Watch or Not To 2

(Continuing my meandering internal turned external monologue about what television shows I may or may not watch.)

Money -vs- Movies

So Ju of D4L, a group you may remember as helping create the phrase "Hip Hop Is Dead" with thier song "Laffy Taffy" released a youtube clip called "I been had money" and it's gloriously ridiculous, see for yourself:

Chinese Bootlegs...

So I was thinking about this article that Silent Murda emailed me over a year ago about how China Is Cloning Everything, with the intention of writing something about cloning or bootlegging and what not.

Jadakiss Jumps Out The Window...

Jada is just one of the greatest ever, I don't care what anyone says, I'm dying for this album to drop.

To Watch or Not To Watch...

I'm a fan of TV. Yes, it's the idiot box, the boob tube, the worst babysitter and it's probably single-handedly responsible for the lack of civility in the country, shortened attention spans and over sexualized youth, but you've got to admit that it's a pretty awesome way to kill time.

"The Keene Act And You"...

This is a very important clip and because I'm an important member of the blogosphere, you can expect my full opinion on this piece of news footage on the 3rd as apposed to the 6Th like the rest of the world.

Friday The 13th (2009) Review

Music Video director Marcus Nispel, who also directed the 2003 reboot of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre series, got the chance to direct another horror cult favorite franchise in the Michael Bay produced, 2009 version of Friday The 13th, a film based on a series that started out promising in 1980 and ended up becoming a laughable parody of itself over the years yet is still respected as a franchise that helped(along with the original Halloween movie) to make “slasher” films into a bankable genre.

Scholarship Chick...

I like this joint. The beat is cool, the hook is cool, Skarr Akbar is a legitimate spitter and they're talking about college chicks, one of my favorite groups of people in the world.

Kanye Explains...

Kanye sits down with MTV's Sway to talk about how secure he is in his manhood. This is mostly in response to this hilarious photo, it's a short clip that ends with Kanye kicking a quick freestyle.
A more thorough explaination of the funniest picture ever can be found here at

Stockton California Sucks...

According to at least.

They noted that "Only 15% of Stockton adults have a college degree, which is one of the lowest rates in the U.S. Unemployment is expected to hit 15% in 2010, while housing prices should keep falling back to their mid-1990s level when the median home price was $130,000", all those thing placed Stockton at the top of Forbes' 10 Most Miserable Cities In The Country list.

Sony Releases New Piece Of Shit...

I actually pre-ordered 2 of these, I can't wait!

The Grammy's...

So I was trying to figure out if I should watch TeenWolf on the ABC Family Channel or The Simpsons and then I realized, the Grammy's is on?! So I turned over to that channel and I realized that I missed a few minutes of it and Cold Play was already on Stage. So I kept the chanel there and continued to watch it and few things occured to me.
In this order:

Athletes + Alcohol = Hilarity

More at DrunkAthlete.Com

Cam Is Back...

I really like what he's doing with the new single, it's called I Hate My Job, video is very bootleg-guerilla style-homegrown-action but I dig it:

A Side of Ketchup: Heroes

I really don't know why I still watch Heroes. Honestly, I can't think of one character that I really care about. I don't really care for the actors or even the writers. But I am a fan of the concept of "super-heroes" and so I watch the bloody program.

Selma Hayek Is Not Stingy...

At all.

In fact she's so generous that she decided to share her precious breast milk with a sick African child.

You Know Why Else Death Wish is Great?

I've got to admit that I've got my own love for the film.

Now, I'm a relatively recent convert to the Death Wish fan club. I happened to catch the entire series in the span of a few days on cable awhile back. But from the first one, I was hooked.

Free Beats From "The Baltimore Scenes" Top Producer...

The Baltimore Scene, a networking and promotional team that’s done a pretty damn good job of promoting Baltimore music, art and culture over the last 3 years recently had a producer battle and a producer from Maryland via Nigeria called Kid Konnect walked away with the $700 prize.

Are Reality Shows Setting Unrealistic Standards For Skanks?

I think so.

I went out recently and saw some chicks doing some pretty skanky shit and I couldn't help but think to myself, "wow, between girls-gone-wild and Flavor of Love, the skank bar has been raised".

Is it the Future Yet?

It's officially 2009. We're living in the future. We've got devices in our pockets that contain more songs than a radio station. We've got portable telephones that double as computers and televisions. And yet I'm still not satisfied.

This isn't the future that I was sold.

KRS1 Doesn't Trust Obama...

According to this 10 minute conspiracy theory "freestyle":

He's really saying some strong shit on here. I wonder what ever happened to Channel Live?

Man Shot In Face. Spits Out Bullet...Wait, What?

So I was reading in today (That's right, I read everything) that some dude got shot in his mug and spit the bullet out.

Best Magic Trick Ever

This is awesome.

You know why "Death Wish" Is Great?

Because it looks real. Actually, hold on a second,

I was going to do a "So I Was Watching The Super Bowl And A Few Things Occured To Me..." type of post on Sunday night or some time on Monday but I got busy and now the Super Bowl in general is completely moot, so i'm gonna pass on that idea.

American Pyscho, For Real...

So Christian Bale completely lost his shit on the set of Terminator:Salvation apparently and got up in the Director of Photography's ass in the most embarrassing and hilarious way.

Paul's Boutique

So the Beastie Boys Re-Released Paul's Boutique last tuesday. Many people including myself consider it to be one of the most creative and innovative Hip Hop albums ever.
