You’ve probably seen this summer’s blockbuster comedy hit, “Twenty-Two Break-Ups.” It’s hilarious, right? It’s got that guy, from that other movie, the one where he’s a cop or something? And that girl, too, who was in a magazine that my roommate gets. Homina, homina! Anyway.
You know how the guy’s friend is in a band called Sammy’s Nads? You might not remember. He’s not a main character, really. But he’s the guy’s friend. The one with the messy hair. Remember he’s in a band? When they go to the bar, in the beginning, there’s a band? OK, well the band is called Sammy’s Nads, and they have a short conversation about what a dumb name it is.
Well, CHECK THIS OUT. When I was in high school, I was in the original Sammy’s Nads. For real! That was my band. We were pretty good, actually. We wrote a whole concept EP about the U.S. invasion of Panama. You remember? Manuel Noriega? No?
Before your time, I guess. Anyway. The point is, another guy in Sammy’s Nads, he went on to study at Yale, where he sort of knew this dude. I guess they were friends, or sort of friends, anyway. And this dude, he later went on to be a big-shot TV and movie producer. And he produced—can you guess? “Twenty-Two Break-Ups.” So it’s totally obvious that my Sammy’s Nads is the inspiration for the Sammy’s Nads in the movie.
So it seems to me that, as the originator of the real-life Sammy’s Nads, I’m entitled to some compensation. It doesn’t have to be a lot. I don’t need, like, a share of the box office. But that guy who’s supposedly “the real-life Kramer,” he got to run for mayor of New York City. So maybe something like that.
What’s that? You don’t believe me. Well, guess what? I HAVE PROOF.
I have a whole bunch of videotapes from old Sammy’s Nads shows. Until now, I’ve had no way to distribute the footage. What, I’m going to dub a hundred VHS copies and send them to entertainment news outlets? Way too pricey, brah. Here’s a better idea. I’m going to snag me one of these Pinnacle video transfer whatchamajigs and put that stuff on YouTube for the public.
The sweet thing about the Pinnacle is that it can save directly to a USB drive, certain iPods, or a Sony PSP. You just plug in the hookups and there you go, no computer required. That’s cool for me because my Sammy’s Nads tapes are all over at my Mom’s place, and she doesn’t have a computer. The encoding’s fast, too, which will save time. I have a lot of tapes to go through.
You can use it to record your video gaming sessions, too! And I suppose some people might also use this thing to circumvent copy protection when making their own legal backups of copy-protected DVDs. Not me, though—I regard that as media piracy, which takes money right out of the pockets of show-biz bigwigs like I’m going to be after the Sammy’s Nads scandal breaks.
Meanwhile, let’s hope “Twenty-Two Break-Ups” stays hot for a while, because I can’t get over to Mom’s for a couple weeks, so my YouTube videos won’t be ready for a while, and timing is everything with this kind of deal. As we used to sing in the old Sammy’s Nads classic “Chipmunk of Love,” “choose your moment and own it / ‘cause the sun don’t shine all the time.”
Yeah, it does sound kind of stupid when you just read it like that. You’d have to hear it with the guitar and stuff, though. We were always more about the groove than the lyrics anyway.
You know, I just thought of this, but I hope that Samuel Bleecker doesn’t come after me once I make it big as “the original Sammy’s Nads frontman.” It was his nads we named the band after. So he’s probably got a legitimate claim, too.

Maybe I shouldn't have gotten violent with the meatbag. But enough
is enough. Oh yeah, everybody thinks the robot is hilarious - except
those of us who actually have to live as robots. If you could only move
your arms and legs in stiff, right-angled jerks, you wouldn't have much
tolerance for some doofus in a sweatsuit and goggles imitating you,
either. I mean, come on: would you do the Watusi in front of an actual

We've told you <a href="http://wine.woot.com/Blog/ViewEntry.aspx?Id=8335">all about</a>
how C&T winemaker Trent Moffett is a n�gociant winemaker who tracks
down the best available grapes and wines from established producers, at
the best available prices. And <a href="http://wine.woot.com/Blog/ViewEntry.aspx?Id=8295">Trent himself introduced you to the ins and outs of n�gociant winemaking</a>
as a Wine.Woot guest blogger. C&T's watchword is "the best possible
wines at the best possible price", a philosophy we find ourselves in
total agreement with.
So this C&T Cellars 2005 Front
Porch Merlot is made from grapes from two different appellations within
Napa Valley, Oak Knoll and St. Helena. (That's one hell of a long Front
Porch.) Producers like Blackbird Vineyards are putting Oak Knoll on the
map for Merlot. While St. Helena is usually synonymous with Cabernet
Sauvignon, it also boasts the right conditions for great Merlot. The
fact that neither is yet considered a world-class Merlot region is why
C&T was able to scoop this fruit up so cheaply. We're in the lag
between reality and reputation here, so enjoy it before everybody else
finds out and ruins everything.
Because in a perfectly just
world, populated by people with complete knowledge and impeccable
judgment, you'd be paying a lot more for this dark, aromatic Merlot. A
chocolate, coffee, and blackberry nose is augmented with hints of
vanilla. The palate is bigger and richer than noted country duo Big
& Rich, with prominent fruit flavors like blackberry and black
cherry leading to a spicy, mocha-tinged, mouth-watering finish. Sure
tastes like more than thirteen bucks a bottle to us.
