Yes Inducted Into Rock and Roll Hall of Fame

Wednesday, December 21st, 2016

So the latest list of Rock and Hall of Fame inductees has been announced, and in addition to recognizing the edgy hard-rock shredding of Joan Baez, they inducted Pearl Jam, Journey, ELO and personal favorite Yes, which I listened to a lot of in high school and college (along with Genesis, Jethro Tull, King Crimson, etc.).

In celebration, here’s “Starship Trooper” accompanied by a montage of eye candy, including some of the Roger Dean variety.

The Annual William Shatner Warning Not To Set Yourself on Fire Frying a Turkey

Wednesday, November 23rd, 2016

In the now-annual tradition, I bring you a public service announcement from William Shatner: try not to set yourself on fire while frying a turkey.

Behold the Shatner!

For those with low Shatner thresholds, the advice is:

  • Don’t overfill the pot with oil.
  • Turn off the flame when lowering the turkey into the oil.
  • Use the metal dingus to lower it in.
  • Always fry your turkey away from your house.
  • Properly thaw the turkey before cooking.
  • Use a grease-approved fire extinguisher.
  • If you’re going to fry a turkey, this is pretty sound advice.
