Chef and The Butcher

So, my last few blogs have focussed mainly on the 2 Deadly Sins I seem to struggle with most...lust and gluttony. I figured I'd get the spotlight off my shortcomings, and back to a little pontificating on the world at large.

Isaac Hayes Quits South Park

Ostensibly, because of the show's religious intolerance. I guess he hasn't been paying attention to the show for the last 10 years (has it been on that long?). Most find it as no coincidence that he quit after the show satirized Scientology, of which he is a follower. I know it's not always easy to laugh at yourself, but it is never hard to laugh at Tom Cruise...and you would have to think he was the inspiration for said lampooning. Of course, upon reading up on the "religion" on one of my favorite resources, Wikipedia, it's hard not to think that they aren't all a little crazy. To that end, it also doesn't surprise me that one of them would flip out and quit a show that has made a sport of ridiculing organized religion...even those that don't involve spaceships and galactic tyrant aliens.

Oddly, the only 2 links to this story I found when I Googled it were from British papers. It makes me worry that Scientologists are more powerful than once realized!

Milosevic Found Dead in His Cell

"The Butcher of The Balkans" died of natural causes at 64. In case you didn't know, he wasn't in there post-conviction - his trial was still ongoing. It was about to start Kindergarten, actually...at that magical age of 5! This dog and pony show was, of course, organized by the bureaucracy to end all bureaucracies - The UN - who took 2 years to present their case!

Where was ADA Jack McCoy when we needed him?! He would have nailed Sloby's ass to the wall after Det. Stabler beat a confession out of him, and left enough camera time for ADA Serena Southerlyn:


Ahh, Elisabeth Rohm. She's one of the less heralded Law & Order babes. Probably my favorite, though. I could never really get excited about Angie Harmon, Jill Hennessee, or Stephanie March...but Liz had me at hello. For the record, I did not find the fact that (in her final episode)her character was outed as a lesbian hot in the slightest.

Damn. I knew I couldn't make it through a whole blog.

While we are here, though - put her on the list of minor celebrities I fancy, along with Monk's new assistant (Traylor Howard), and Giada De Laurentiis from The Food Network.

Who names a girl Traylor, by the way? You might as well just start sticking your finger down their throat after they nurse, so they can get used to having an eating disorder.

I had heard that he orignally gave an interview that said he didn't care about them making fun of his religion, and then a couple of weeks later, under presumed pressure from the clan, he came out and spoke publically against it. Remember, the episode has been out awhile now and news of this is just breaking.

It said I was in Purgatory, but my lust factor was "very high". I guess I really have gotten better over the last few years.

Oddly, so violence was "high"...and I'm not a very violent person at all! If you think I am, I will fight you!!

No wonder Elizabeth Rohm is less heralded. She has no tits.

I don't know that any of the L&O girls have alot up-stairs.

Besides, I'm thinking 20 years down the road...gravity will not have been as cruel to her...you know, after she has had 8 of my kids.

Jamie said...

Omigod. I just landed myself in the 5th circle of Hell. Damn road rage...

Eric said...

Great! That's like 2 steps up for you, right?

Jamie said...

I had to look it up, but it is. I went from lust/glutton to anger. What the hell happened to me in the last 3 years?

Eric said...

I'll direct you to a website that will explain it all:

But for the quickest answer...you graduated college, and moved into the real world...and a bad one...not Real World Las Vegas, but Real World San Francisco.

Breasts are wonderful whether they are small or big, and she's mighty hott.. but in a makeup did wonders for me sort of way.

Angel Girl said...

I was deemed "Level 2 - Lustful".. hmmm I wonder if that question about having sex with the same sex and masterbating frequently had anything to do with it?

Eric said...

AG, I think you are probably in the same boat as many with your frequent...ahem...self-attention. Not that I would know...

I may have to find a better pic of Lizzy...since she is getting so much criticism on here!!

Jamie said...

Hey, didn't they just finish or are finishing Real World Atlanta?

I wonder if my gay realtor made a cameo...

BTW, that picture is SO airbrushed, hate to burst your bubble on that one.

Eric said...

Oh, no! You mean she might look slightly less delicious in person?! Whatever would I do?

I can't win with you guys...

Angel Girl said...

Ah much better, a little side view of the breast can always go far ;)

Angel Girl said...

Jamie, airbrushed or not she still has come boobs showing, and that's all that matters here lol.
