Is it just me, or does Borat in that body suit look a lot like the late Freddie Mercury of Queen? Separated at birth, perhaps?

Did we really need Film Threat to tell us that Patrick Swayze's film-making career isn't doing too well?

Did PC World seriously name "Hot or Not" as one of the best wastes of time on the internet? Maybe 10 years ago.

But hey, my best albums of the year list got a Largehearted Boy mention! Along with about 6000 other people's lists.

Cranky today, Mark. I agree that PC World fell down with some of those. What was your CD of the year?

Did we really need the Long Cut to tell us that Cat Power's "The Greatest" was, uh, the greatest?

A buddy from college and I found some lawn darts in a closet at my home one summer. I still have them.

They are freaking dangerous if you aren't careful. But they are loads of fun. 

And, yes, we made up our own rules.
