Spiders on drugs, dropped calls, and the sweet, sweet sound of music!

I really like spiders. c3fun.blogspot.com/2007/09/getting-back-to-basics-clips-comics-and.html If I find one in the house, I always get my junky ass "spider cup" from the garage and take it out. Not to dinner-outside! My wife doesn't like it, but now she will call me from the other room to get the spider out! Even black widows are safe from the waffle-like stomp of my shoes. I will take those out too, but most of the time I find them outside in a bad place-where our 7 year-old can possible make contact with her. I will get a cup and move it to a safe spot-in the neighbor's yard...neighbor's mailbox..in the other neighbor's swimming pool...just kidding. I move it to a far away spot or to the field next to our house. I would rather have more spiders-including black widows than a bunch of flies, mosquitoes, and grasshoppers wouldn't you?

I would like to see some spiders like these. It would be very interesting to see these particular spiders. "Uhh...wow, myaaan. I have like, 16 legs now!"



Here is a couple more c3fun.blogspot.com/2007/09/funny-commercials-and-fun-with-idioms.html great commercials. I am not much of a TV watcher. There are a few shows that I like, but not many. I do like some of the the new funny commercials, though.
The recent Cingular "dropped call" commercials are pretty funny.

Here are three-two "real" Cingular ads, and two other parodies of these ads.
The "butcher" ad: www.dhadm.com/content/cingular-att-dropped-calls-meat-dept/

The "Jimbo" ad: (Its kinda poor quality)



Here is one of the funnier Cingular parodies-(there's a lot out there!)




"Wrapped up like a Douche" parody:



*Update-St Sanders-(Santeri Ojala) the author (whom I unfortunately forgot to name in the original posting) of these really funny guitarist clips, has had to pull these great clips from YouTube due to the original guitarists citing copyright infringement. Copyright infringement!? For pete's sake people, get a f'n life! These clips are parodies. They did not have original songs or music. Awful. Well, at least they are available at this Wired link Banned From YouTube: Parody Guitar Videos . (I'm leaving the old useless video posts as a testament to the idiocy of taking these funny clips down!)
I really love rock and roll. All kinds. Heavy rock especially, but I will listen to blues, soul, funk rap, pop, "indie"- whatever. I absolutely love guitar-based rock and roll though. I play some myself and pull out the old Gibson Les Paul, overdrive box and Fender amp and make some noise when I have the time. Some of the greatest rock guitarist's Cd's and mp3's are found in my collection and computer. I love Eddie Van Halen, Jimmy Page, Slash, Santana, etc, etc.
That's why its so distressing to see how musically out of shape some of these players have become lately. I think I could easily outplay these guys in their present state!

Don't believe me? Just check out this recent clip of Eddie VH jamming at a concert:



And what the hell happened to Eric Clapton?!
