Stenner Glen Crosses The Stream With Lane Meyer

The announcers from Better Off Dead

Better Off Dead is a really great movie. Stenner Glen is a really great band. The marriage was almost too obvious.

Possibly astonishing sidenote: Did you know that the Asian Howard Cossell announcer guy, played by Yuji Okumoto, was the bad guy in Karate Kid 2? They just don't teach that kind of range anymore, not to mention that sort of enunciation.

For those that would like some more tidbits, like the hot French exchange student also appearing as Bill S Preston's girlfriend in Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure, this awesome article at Pajiba should do you good. I appreciate how it appears in the mindhole blowers section.

Holiday Reviews? Don't Mind If I Do

Holiday Reviews at Super Hella Awesome

Fully admitting that may of them are valid, I'd like to think I am in the majority with my general belief that we celebrate too many causes. As with all things in life that sometimes wander my mind, South Park gloriously broached the subject with their version of a Dr. Seuss story "A Scause For Applause". Without ruining much you can see some greatness in the episode summary:

A serious doping scandal shakes everyone's faith in a beloved icon. Everyone who once supported the fallen hero is now cutting off their symbolic yellow wristbands.

Oh Lance Armstrong, you Icarus you. Suffice to say when I was informed today was National Penguin Day I thought of three things: tuxedo shirts, Morgan Freeman and the aforementioned South Park episode.

Sometimes you feel like you know what's going to happen during an internet search. It was with this feeling that I soon learned how dumb I really was about scauses. Today is apparently all of these things:

  • DNA Day
  • East Meets West Day
  • Hairstylists Appreciation Day
  • National Crayola Day
  • National Mani-Pedi Day
  • National Telephone Day
  • National Plumber's Day (Also known as Hug A Plumber Day!)
  • Parental Alienation Awareness Day
  • Red Hat Society Day
  • School Bus Drivers' Day
  • World Malaria Day
  • World Penguin Day

Wow, April 25th. You really bring the thunder.

It is with this newfound awareness of my lack of awareness that a new feature has been birthed upon this section of the interwebs: Holiday Reviews. I'll do my best to make your parents uncomfortable and drink too much, figuratively speaking I am sure.

Let's Go Hoffing: Du

David Hasselhoff crosses the finish line

As longtime fans of the great David Hasselhoff's musical prowess, it seemed only right to celebrate the site's return with some of the soothing sounds of the Hoff. Let's Go Hoffing shall we....

Like every great ballad, "Du" starts with the Hoff doing some spoken word while walking along the beach in a very sexy outfit. Unfortunately he sang this song in some weird language so it was never the Grammy winner it was destined to be. Thankfully we can watch the video with or without sound. I'm not really sure which is the better option. Kidding obviously, listen to those pipes bro.

The Heart of Danza

The elusive Heart of Danza

It is with a overflowing cup of gratitude that I am here to tell you I have returned from my quest. The jungle was not nice, nay pleasant, but it met me with my one true love, the elusive Heart of Danza. Now my time away was not without it's costs - financial, emotional, physical - but a cost I would gladly repay again, aside from the missing limbs which I shall not be able to again provide, to see the great sight mine eyes hath saw.

It is with this renewed vigor and passion that Super Hella Awesome has been relaunched into the wild, like a donkey looking for his birth mother at a donkey show. These are the days of our lives. Play it again Sam.

(I missed you guys.)
