Remember when rock bands looked cool and not like those a-holes with the thumb-rings and wool hats at the coffee shop?

I don’t want no tutti-frutti, no lollipop, come on baby let’s rock, rock, rock, Torn Slatterns and Nugget Ranchers

Hard to believe it is almost August, isn’t it? This summer went by faster than a Mel Gibson phone rant gets put on the Internet.

Outgoing BP CEO Tony Hayward says, after the spill, he was demonized and vilified; so apparently Hayward has the Rev. Jesse Jackson writing his speeches.

Another Mel Gibson phone rant has surfaced. Although, I am starting to think Mel is running out of steam. On this phone rant he called his ex-girlfriend a poopy head and a doo-doo brain.

Outgoing BP CEO Tony Hayward says, after the spill, he was demonized and vilified; who does this weasel think he is? Dr. Seuss? “I was demonized, was I, vilified and ostracized, criticized besides mystified and horrified with a side of terrorized. That’s where I reside.”

Since you asked:

Don’t you hate it when people tell you that you have to do something? Having said that, you have to watch “Louie” on Tuesdays on FX. (Check your local schedule)

I’m already a huge Louis C.K. fan and have been for at least ten years. From his bit about the cops asking him to lift his scrotum and he asked “With my hands?” and "Do you ever keep seeing the same person you don't know?"

Louis C.K's comedy derives from a deep well of brutal honesty combined with the fact he is very smart and doesn't eff around. At all.

His show swings from wildly funny – the scenes with Ricky Gervais as an a-hole doctor are tear-inducing funny – to gross to hard-to-watch to sweet. The show is an anti-Disney show that features no hackneyed situation comedy routines, hip phrases, no routines of any kind.

Each “Louie” show takes on a life of its own, either focusing on his stand up routines or his daily life or branching out on a wild farce. You honestly cannot tell what is scripted and what is actually happening.

You also have to see “Between Two Ferns” with Zach Galifinakis and Steve Carrell on “Funny or Die.”

But besides watching “Louie” on FX and Steve Carrell on Zach’s “Between Two Ferns” don’t let anyone tell you what you should or should not do.

Oh, and you have to download Led Zeppelin's "Boogie with Stu" from "Physical Graffitti" from iTunes. Just try and keep dem toes from a tappin all up in here, up in here.
