Beavis and Butthead


Last night the weather was nice, and really good for running.  Those mild temperatures carried over into today, and it was spring like but breezy.  There is more sun in the early morning and the sun is setting later each eve.  Soon we will be springing ahead, and hopefully keeping our nearly snow-less streak alive.

We got to talk to Gavin this afternoon after Sue and I were trading posts and comments in Facebook.  Gavin has the day off, and posted that he had some time to talk…a quick conference call with him and Sue, and we are all caught up.  There is quite a stir in regard to KONY 2012.  If you have not seen the video, you should.

Gavin says he misses some home cooked meals, like the Paella I make, having a steak once in a while, and is looking forward to the summer.  I am sure some steamed clams, a lobster, and maybe my salmon teriyaki will also be on his list.

The big solar burst thankfully did not hit earth straight on, and did not affect communications, power grids, or GPS.  Flights were re-routed as a precaution, and those up further north were once again treated to some really cool northern lights “Aurora Borealis”

This day in history “On this day in 1993, the Music Television Network (MTV) airs the first episode of the animated series Beavis and Butthead, which will go on to become the network’s highest-rated series up to that point.
Beavis and Butthead offered audiences rude and crude buddy humor in the tradition of The Three Stooges, Cheech and Chong, and Wayne and Garth of Saturday Night Live and the Wayne’s World movies. The titular main characters were two teenage boys living in the fictional town of Highland; they attended Highland High (based on a real school in creator Mike Judge’s hometown of Albuquerque, New Mexico) but spent most of their time eating junk food, talking about girls and--most importantly--watching music videos. Beavis and Butthead alternated between animated storylines and clips of actual music videos, which Beavis and Butthead commented on in their signature bone-headed style, punctuated by sarcastic comments and grunt-like laughter.”

What can I say about beavis and butthead, other than that they were very funny.  Even Luke, who has a great sense of humor caught the tail end of their ridiculousness, and after seeing the beavis and butthead movie, could be seen with tshirt over his head quoting “I am cornholio”.   The crude, adolescent humor is great, and movies such as Cop Out, Step Brothers, and The Hangover are household favorites.  At least for Luke and I…

"Whoa. Is this like the weather channel?"
"Yeah, eh heh heh, the forecast is partially cool."
