Friday Clutter

Hi everyone,

Welcome back, and a happy Friday to you all!  We survived the week, folks, and that's reason to celebrate right there.  It's supposed to be another nice day out, so help yourself to a nice medium iced DD, and let's close out the week with a little Friday Clutter.

Former president George W. Bush came out of hiding for a day to attend the dedication of his new library.  He's right about one thing:  History will judge his legacy and he is not going to be happy with the final verdict.

Barbara Bush isn't that excited about the notion of Jeb Bush running for president.  That's rough.

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell claims to belong to the party of compassion, immigrants and hard-working tax payers.  When did he leave the GOP?

Dan Kennedy says there are some questions about what exactly happened in Watertown last Friday.

Do you think a "Boston Strong" candle will be a big seller?

Note to self:  It might finally be time to look into refinancing Clutter Headquarters, because these low rates are just ridiculous, and it doesn't make sense to leave that money on the table if I don't have to.  Hell, I could probably build a new wing for BDH and Little Buddha with those savings.

I am absolutely rooting for Benedict Cumberbatch to take out Captain Kirk, Mr. Spock, and the rest of the Enterprise crew in the new Star Trek movie.  Don't let me down, J.J. Abrams.

 

Mark your calenders, everyone.  Arrested Development returns one month from today, and it looks as funny as ever!

There are only three episodes of How I Met Your Mother left for this year.  We kick things off next Monday with Barney's bachelor party (which will clearly be legendary), and where will we end to set up the final season of the show?

What are you doing on August 12th?  Should we have a Clutter field trip to see the reunited Black Sabbath in concert?

It's good to hear that Wayne's World alum Mike Meyers and Dana Carvey have stopped fighting, because what hope is there for the rest of us if Wayne and Garth can't get along?

This article about why Gawker.com is refusing to remove an article about Hulk Hogan's sex tape is more interesting than you might think at first glance.  (Don't worry, clicking on the link doesn't force you to actually watch the tape.

Not only is there a new Doctor Who episode on Saturday, but it's time for the look back at the 4th Doctor, played by Tom Baker, on Sunday!  This was my original Doctor.  I thought funny guys with curly hair were cool (still do, actually), and he seemed like a madman I wanted to travel through time with in a funny blue box.  Apparently they'll air the Pyramid of Mars adventure after the retrospective, and I remember that one scaring the hell out of me as a little kid.  Can't wait!

 

Okay kids, that's going to do it for now.  This has been a crazy couple of weeks, and I think we could all use a good laugh (I know I could), so let's have Eddie Izzard explain religion to everyone in today's, "Clip of the Day."

 

Thanks for stopping by, everyone.  It was great to see you, as always.  Enjoy the rest of your day, and let's do this again soon.  Sound like a plan?  Maybe we could meet up this weekend to go on a shopping spree on Boylston Street or something.  Think about it and let me know.  For now, that's today's Clutter, and we are outta here.
