Last night’s episode of Man Vs Wild (err Men vs Wild with Will Ferrell) was a hilarious episode! What a brilliant idea! Who would have thought that these two guys together would make for great TV! Will Ferrell was on Bear Grylls’ Discovery Channel show Man Vs Wild last night, to cross-promote his latest film “Land of the Lost.” If you haven’t seen the episode yet, be sure to watch it because I’m going to talk about things they did on the show.
I recently visited Dublin, Ireland with my girlfriend Kristen. We had a blast and managed to see a lot in 7 days. We walked all over the city and saw Cathedrals, museums, a Zoo, a prison, saw a few Castles, went in a few pubs, did some shopping and even checked out a few things outside the city as well. We went to the West Coast of Ireland one day and saw the Cliffs of Moher (Insanity! – Princess Bride reference). We spent some time in the seaside towns of Malahide, and Howth and walked around the Powerscourt Gardens estate, and Glendalough. All in all, it was a great trip and I would love to go back to Ireland, but this time see more of the countryside. Throughout the trip, I took lots of photographs and wrote about them on my photography website SkaPunkPhotos.com. Here’s a list of the blog postings, along with a few photos:
Now that season five of Lost is over, we have about 8 months before the final season begins. As such, there is nothing that can be done but take some guesses as to what will happen during season six. We know that the producers like to throw the audience off the track with various surprises, and growing mysteries. I figure that the more ridiculous my plotline ideas are, the more likely they are to happen.
I shot the Franz Ferdinand & Born Ruffians show last night at Roseland in New York City. I’ll have a live review of the show later on this weekend but for right now, you can check the photos at Prefixmag.com.

I’m off to Dublin, Ireland tonight! I booked this trip with my girlfriend in the beginning of the month, and now we’re leaving already. Time flies! We’ll be spending a week there, and leaving 80 degree NY for 50 degree Ireland. I don’t mind so much, as long as it stays somewhat dry. With me being on vacation for a week, there will be no time to update ReadJunk.com but you might see an update here and there from my brother.
So I’ve noticed I stir up some trouble anytime I mention Metallica and after having an intelligent conversation about the band yesterday (for the first time, ever) I decided to write a lovely article. Of course, comments with your thoughts/opinions are welcome, but if you insult my intelligence because of my views, then you’re just an idiot.
I’m not saying anything judgmental about these bands. But time hasn’t been kind to them one way or another.
1. Voodoo Glow Skulls
3. Isaac Green and the Skalars
4. Cousin Oliver
5. Skavoovie and the Epitones
After about a month of anticipation, it was finally THE day; the day to do a full investigation of the Shanley Hotel in Napanoch, NY. For those of you unfamiliar with the Shanley and its history, check out their website. You’ll find EVPs, photos, videos, and more at the website!
As a celebration of managing to spend more time posting random tidbits of news than actually working, I would like to congratulate Mr. Adam Coozer on 1000 posts of his blog, The Coozer Files. The only thing I do believe that Mr. Coozer does more than post is shock the monkey, but that’s for another blog altogether.
Anyways, as a tribute to one of the most irreverent, ridiculous, and often hilarious blogs around, I would like to highlight my ten favourite Coozer posts of the last six months.
Hey everyone, welcome to the new ReadJunk.com! I really hope you like it. It’s been in the works since July but we finally launched! We needed to get some extra help towards the end, and this wouldn’t be possible without Ryan Malluk…and me of course. haha. If you haven’t noticed, we switched ReadJunk.com to a blog style website.
Since theres absolutely nothing on TV besides reruns and stupidity, I decided to poke around this bootleg TV/movie site and check out something I’ve never seen before…or maybe even a movie I wouldn’t dare waste a Netflix rental on.
I came across the show Gossip Girl. The site had the complete first season, all great quality, so I figured “why not see what the fuss is all about,” grabbed a glass of wine and clicked on the pilot episode. A few hours later, I realized I had just watched a few episodes of those oh so scandalous series. I was hooked. I was unbelievably hooked, and was sorry I judged the show before I started watching it.
I love movie soundtracks and scores. While Ill be writing up another list of film scores for another time, I wanted to list my top 25 favorite soundtracks. There are a lot of obvious ones in there but there are a few obscure movies in the bunch as well. Its tough with lists with trying to rank each one so I did my best, but Im sure people out there will disagree with me. If you think I forgot a soundtrack, please comment down below! Heres the list of my favorite soundtracks, starting with number 1:
1. A Clockwork Orange
A Clockwork Orange is my favorite soundtrack. Its the soundtrack I listened to throughout high school for some reason. Im a huge fan of classical music, and Walter (errr Wendy) Carlos moog synthesizers make the pieces so much more trippy, creepy and entertaining. You can tell this movie was made in the 70s but the way that Carlos did the pieces was brilliant. The title track is haunting, and the classical pieces by Beethoven made me appreciate his work ten times more. Now Ninth Symphony, Second Movement is my favorite classical piece. Another notable classical piece is the Thieving Magpie by Rossini. You might remember that song from the beginning of the movie with Alex and his droogs square off with Billy Bob and his gang. Whenever I hear any of the tracks somewhere else, the first thing that comes to mind is A Clockwork Orange. Even hearing Singing In The Rain makes me think of this movie, whereas it should make me think of Singing In The Rain. But it doesnt.
