Tennesseeing is Tennebelieving

So last night, I was enjoying some Arrested Development DVDs. Second Season. The one where Buster (my name's sake) thinks he escaped into Mexico to avoid going into the army. "This shall keep me safe from the hot Mexican sun." Oh man that's a good one. If you don't know exactly what I'm talking about then do yourself the greatest favor of your life, take about a week off of work, sit in front of your computer (thank you Hulu)and watch the entire series (you must start at the first episode and watch in order) over and over until it absorbs into your bones. Incest has never been so funny.

But that's not what I wanted to talk about today. On the subject of Arrested Development, I wanted to dust off this early 90's classic. "Headliner, I challenge you to a game of horseshoes. A game of HORSESHOES!"

Speech knows how to write a song.

I guess there was some legal scuffle between the band Arrested Development and the TV show Arrested Development. The show referenced this in the episode about Motherboy. But you would never know it. I won't bother to set up the joke. It would take too long. Let him who has ears to hear . . .

I love that this show had the confidence in itself to not spell out its jokes to everyone. It makes it rewarding to obsessive losers like myself that watches this crap over and over.

Thank you for reminding me of the greatest line in any rap song (are they called 'rap songs' or just raps) ever! Horshoes?!

Yesterday i went on an Arrested Development (band) binge. I forgot how much I liked them, back in the day.

I hung out with Arrested Development at a street festival in Raleigh, NC a couple of summers ago while I was on tour with a has-been 90s band. They are very cool folks, and their tour bus rules. It was very smoky.

I also met the singer from Rusted Root! (That was a sarcastic exclamation point)He was nice.

Ask me about the multitude of other washed up entertainers I have worked with!

I just realized that didn't display my real name. It's your cousin, Dan Frome.

Nice bloggings, keep it up!
