To deal with all of the panicked shoppers here on the East Coast, I think I am going to start up a store that sells nothing but bread and toilet paper in bulk.
Then, with the profits, I’m going to start up a driving school that teaches these people how to drive in the snow.
Either that, or I’ll just take the money and move to the West Coast.
Here’s what’s new on HoboTrashcan.com this week:
Murphy’s Law – You had me at Denzel
As the guy on the corner wearing the sandwich board has been trying to tell us for years, the world is eventually going to end. Joel Murphy has accepted this fact and has even gone so far as to select his preferred apocalypse; one that heavily features Denzel Washington.
Outside of the In-Crowd – It’s like they’re not listening to me
No matter how much Courtney Enlow rants and raves about the sad state of chick flicks, it seems like Hollywood is content to keep churning out awful movies. The two most recent offenders are When In Rome and Valentine’s Day.
Positive Cynicism – Michael Scott jumps the shark
Unless a character literally jumps over a shark like Fonzie did on Happy Days, it’s often difficult to pinpoint the exact moment a popular show begins to decline in quality. However, Aaron R. Davis is convinced he knows exactly when The Office headed downhill.
Hobo Radio 116 – Going Ben Linus on your hatch
This week, we are shaking things up a bit. In honor of Lost’s impending final season, Joel Murphy and Lars have invited Chris Kirkman, HoboTrashcan’s resident Lost expert, on to discuss the show. Ben Linus himself, Michael Emerson, described Kirkman’s recaps as “one of the smartest articles I’ve ever read about what goes on on our show,” so needless to say, the guy knows what he’s talking about.
From the Vault – One on One with Henry Rollins
Whether on stage screaming lyrics to a song, storytelling at a spoken-word show or helping Will Smith and Martin Lawrence take down white supremacists in Bad Boys II, it’s pretty clear that Henry Rollins is a take no prisoners, take no bullshit kind of guy.
It’s also clear that he’s one of the hardest working celebrities alive today. With a versatile career in a variety of different fields, it’s clear that Rollins can accomplish anything he puts his mind to. In 2007, he took some time out his busy schedule to talk to us about his career, travels and experiences – and he certainly didn’t pull any punches in the process.
