Three Cheers for Three Sheets

I'm back to promote a great show that got a second life. The show is called Three Sheets and it used to be on the now defunct network MOJO. Three Sheets boils down to this, Zane Lamprey, a very funny guy with an iron liver, travels around the World visiting countries for the express purpose of introducing his audience to the local drinking customs. He give you some neat information about the place he's visiting and then proceeds to drink their local spirits with a local guide all the while making quippy jokes and educating people.

The show has a devoted following (like Rachel and me) which has resulted in Zane continuing inside jokes (which are explained to the uninitiated) and the resulting drinking game. I guarantee you will enjoy this show if you like alcohol and/or travel. In fact, you will find yourself wanting to visit these places and marvel at how Zane has the best job in the world.

At the end of each show, Zane shows you the aftereffects of his imbibing. He usually looks like hell and that's the beauty. He doesn't show himself looking great, he's honest with how shitty he feels. Following that, he then tries the local hangover cure, usually to some comedic effect.

I think my favorite part of the show is how he nice and appreciative he is to his hosts. He can be outlandish and a jokester but you can tell he makes fast friends and the people are glad he came.

So, please check out Three Sheets on Fine Living Network starting Monday, July 20th. Here's his site, enjoy.

I think I've told a couple people here and there about Adam Carolla's podcast but I wanted to let everyone know. Most of you will remember Adam from The Man Show, Loveline, and as one of the voices on Crank Yankers. He's hilarious and is a master of the rant. Adam could riff for 10 minutes on anything.

Check out his podcast on iTunes and , it's well worth it.

Also, check out his movie The Hammer. Very funny and touching story of a 40 year old carpenter attempting a boxing comeback for the 08' Olympics. I think Rachel was reluctant to watch it but was soon laughing throughout. It's currently in rotation on the HBO family of networks.

Check out this article where the Iranian Ambassador to Mexico accuses the CIA of shooting Neda, the Iranian woman seen around the World after being shot by Iranian snipers.

If you want proof that religion and government should have a permanent divorce, Iran is a shining, or dull, example. A country ruled by holy men with the sole purpose of controlling millions and subjugating half its population.

This election fiasco, and the subsequent clamping down on protests and, most importantly, press reporting, shows how truly out of touch and despicable the Iranian government is. If you want to test whether a government is inherently evil, ask them these questions (followed by the answers for Iran):

Do you let your people come and go as they please? NO
Do you let the press report freely? NO
Do you let your people worship in whatever way they choose? NO
Do you let your people choose not to worship? NO
Are women given the same rights as men? NO

I hope these protest galvanize into real change in Iran. I also hope that the people of the Middle East wake up to the fact that many of their religious leaders are manipulating them and stealing their futures.

Take That Spain!

I'm sure many of you did not watch the USA versus Spain soccer match in the Confederations Cup. Well, you missed a great game and a fantastic upset over the #1 ranked team in the world. I loved everything about the game (except for the Michael Bradley BS red card) from the hustle and the spot on counter-attacks, to the inspired defense from Oguchi Onyewu, my favorite player.

Regardless of how they do in the finals against Brazil or South Africa, the squad should feel very proud of how they came back from elimination to beat one of the best teams in the world. I can only hope this style of play is built upon for the World Cup next year.

The United States of America, give us enough time and we will beat you at your own game.

Yet another member of the moral majority bites the dust. I will try to contain my glee.

Everybody Can Suck It!

Kathy Griffin's "My Life on the D-list" premiers tonight on Bravo at 9pm. If you've never caught her show it is hilarious. I think what I like most about her and the show is that she doesn't hide her pathological desire to be noticed. While other celebrities act nonchalantly towards fame and exposure, Kathy pursues it with great vigor and is completely unashamed about it.

Also, she is one incredibly funny person.

Lastly, Wipeout has two new hours this Wednesday.

How's That for Equality?

Well, a female finally won Wipeout last night. In fact, it was an all female final four, for the first time ever.

I definitely have to hand it to the designers of the obstacles, the Bridge Too Far obstacle is top notch in terms of Schadenfreude. I could watch people get hit in the face by these platforms all day every day and it would never get old. I think it's my second favorite obstacle after the Big Balls (which will probably never be topped).

Here are some decent sites I found.

You should definitely check it out.
