It’s The Friday Five!

Guess what folks…It’s Friday, which means it is time for a Friday Five. You may be scratching your head and thinking “didn’t we already do this?” Well that was Michelle’s amazing Monday Five…and this is Mikey’s Fabulous Friday Five. It’s really not that complicated. What happened this week that was worth hitting the charts? Well just read on, dear friends.

First up is the most amazing news out of New Jersey since Bruce Springsteen and Bon Jovi: Snooki is having a baby! For those of you who do not know, Snooki is the chief sleazebag on Jersey Shore. She has heightened awareness of all things New Jersey and help break down all those nasty stereotypes about people from the state. And now…she’s reproducing. I’m anticipating something that looks like Godzilla.

Next we have news from the wonderful world of technology. As we become more and more reliant on our smartphones, they are going to have to get bigger and bigger. Some enterprising young minds are truly worried about this development. In fact, the boys over at Buzzfeed’s new tech site FWD created a chart to demonstrate exactly when the smartphone screen will be larger than the average male penis. Of course, those of you with a micropeen are already pushing your phones forward to make your penis look bigger (I am obviously referring to Adam here).

In more serious news, the American Foundation for Equal Rights broadcast their star studded production of Dustin Lance Black’s play 8 on youtube last week. It is an important play only because it shows the idiocy and bigotry of the anti-gay asswipes fighting to keep happy gay couples from getting married. Also, you should watch it to see how much Chris Colfer’s talents are wasted on “Glee.”

While we are discussing wasted talent, we should turn our attention to Lindsay Lohan. She hosted SNL last week and aside from the Disney Housewives sketch it was awful. Furthermore, why has a woman so young had so much work done on her perfectly beautiful face? Just because Michael Jackson is dead, doesn’t mean that anyone should try and top his plastic surgery record. Lohan is looking so ragged that Debbie Harry was mistaken for her the day after her visit to NYC. Ms. Harry looks great for her age, but she’s also forty odd years older than LiLo.

And finally, the coolest of them all. About a year ago, I wrote a blog rant about how easy it has become to solve Rubik’s Cubes due to guides on the internet. Well an artist named Pete Fecteau has found a way to make them relevant to me again, by making them into a mural of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. His Dream Big project takes hundreds of the cubes and manipulates them so that they have the right colors in the perfect space to make a mural of the Dr. King. It’s moving and mesmerizing.

There you have them folks: Snooki’s offspring, the Peenpocalypse, 8, the unusual resurgence of Debbie Harry, and Rubik’s Cube art. Close runners-up were hardcore gay pornography, this freakishly early spring weather, and 30 Rock’s amazing brilliance. What is on your five today?

  1. Here are mine:

    1) Advil for jaw/tooth pain (this could be 1-5 but I’ll resist taking the easy way out)
    2) Open bars at receptions
    3) Meetings that you can record as “measurable successes” for the bosses
    4) Gorgeous California weather
    5) Meeting people from around the globe you’ve only interacted with on-line

    As to yours:

    1) The final sign of the apocalypse
    2) Such a boy problem
    3) I’ve heard good reviews of this. Will have to watch later
    4) Love Debra Harry, Hate LiLo, liked Stitch
    5) I was always too impatient for Rubik’s Cube, or maybe I just didn’t care.

  2. My school was on Spring Break this past week, so my Friday five is:
    1. Monday 2. Tuesday 3. Wednesday 4 Thursday 5 Friday

    As for the post…
    1. Glad someone is debunking all those NJ stereotypes!
    2. I recently bought a tablet pc. Wanted something with a pen interface, but all the current tablets (in my price range) were absurdly small. So I tracked down a convertible laptop with a 14″ screen on ebay, running WinXP, for $200. Works like a charm. Sadly, it weighs 8 lbs, which perhaps explains why these didn’t catch on in 2005.
    3. Thank you for the link; looking forward to watching this one.
    4. Our oldest had a HUGE crush on her when he was 3 or 4 and “Freaky Friday” had just come out. Glad he grew out of that.
    5. Confession: I’ve never been able to solve one, although as a mathematician I understand the principle behind the solution methods.

    1. LEGOS!

      I have bins of lego and k’nex at home. Those are my only childhood things that my mom isn’t allowed to dispose of. Best toys ever because they require creativity.

      1. My mom sent over all my old toys when I moved out, including a bin of legos. I had a hankering for them the other day, so I found instuctions online for how to build the old castle set I had as a kid (Black Monarch’s Castle) which I did and it was so much fun. Now I’m hooked again.

        1. too many pieces are missing from the sets to build anything correctly. I remember a few years ago trying to make the K’Nex “Big Ball Factory” (possibly not the most creative of names) and had to do a lot of finagling to get it to work more or less correctly because of missing pieces.

      1. I gave all my Legos away a few years ago to my mom’s coworker. I was expecting a thank you note, instead the bitch complained that she didn’t have anywhere to put so many Legos. SO UNGRATEFUL! I should have mailed them all to Michelle. (or Craig)

  3. That’s a good 5. Poor Lindsey, I wonder what she’ll look like in 20 years (if she lives that long). Her sister has also had too much surgery.

    I don’t know anything about phones.

    Harry has a Rubik’s cube. He hasn’t figured it out yet.

    I’ll take a look at 8 when I’m feeling better. I’m going back to bed.
