Trailer Trash — Arthur, Source Code, and Hop

Trailer Trash — Arthur, Source Code, and Hop

Movies
I don't have time to go to the movies much any more. So instead I'm going to just review some new and upcoming films based solely on their trailers. Because let's face it, most movies only have about two or three minutes' worth of good material anyway. Arthur Ah Hollywood, always perfectly tuned into the needs and feelings of American moviegoers. I can imagine that with unemployment still rampant and people scraping by just to keep from getting kicked out of their homes in record numbers, there's nothing people want to see more than a feel-good comedy about a spoiled -- and possibly mentally challenged -- man-child (Russell Brand) flaunt his wealth for a few hours. Oh, but he's really a good guy so I guess it's OK. Whatever. I never got around to seeing the original Arthur wit...
2010: The Gray Flannel Suit Year That Was

2010: The Gray Flannel Suit Year That Was

Blogstuff
It's been another fun year for me in running this site, and I'd like to thank all of you who visit regularly, irregularly, or even once.  I'd also like to thank everyone who has helped by contributing comments and post ideas.  It's good to know there's at least a few people out there who enjoy my little corner of the intertubes.  Since we're in the midst of year-end review season, let's take a quick look back at the posting year that was 2010 for The Man in the Gray Flannel Suit. Most Popular Posts This is really what it's all about right?  It's always interesting to me to see what content takes off and what content gets largely ignored.  Since I want to stay positive I'll focus on the former.  So here are the eleven most-popular posts on the site for 2010. #11. Happy Hoff-Day! - Davi
Showdown: Hasselhoff vs. Shatner

Showdown: Hasselhoff vs. Shatner

Funny Stuff
Truly these are great times to be alive, my friends, for we have walking among (amongst?) us mortals two men of such legendary accomplishments, that to even utter their names is to inspire greatness. I am speaking of course about David Michael Hasselhoff and William Alan Shatner. And while we are lucky in that we would never have to choose between the two, I thought I'd take a minute to compare the careers of these two titans to see just which one comes out on top. It's on!

Are you addicted to the Internet?

Are you addicted to the Internet?

Funny Stuff, Listcruft
There is no shortage of press and academic research covering the topic of so-called Internet Addiction. Of course, the first reaction of any true addict is "not me!" This denial is usually followed by surprise, realization, and then descent into an all-too familiar shame spiral. In the interest of science and self-improvement I've spent the last few weeks keeping a meticulous log of my daily activities, in order to better understand just how the Internet fits into my life. The results, needless to say, confirm that I totally have this thing under control. Just take a look at last Thursday's log (time spent is total throughout the day, not consecutive): 45 minutes spent updating my Wikipedia watchlist to make sure some snot-nosed high school punk hasn't vandalized one of my favor...
Happy Hoff-Day!

Happy Hoff-Day!

People
Ah, what a glorious day it is today!  And why, you ask?  Because today is the day we mortals celebrate the anniversary of David Hasselhoff's birth of course!  David Hasselhoff is, as you may already be aware, one of the three most important figures in history - the other two being William Shatner and the Burger King. So happy birthday and a hearty huzzah to you, you big ol' talking car-driving, paunch-sucking, no shirt-wearing, surreal music career-having, mediocre TV movie-making, floor cheeseburger-eating lug you!

...but then again, no. I mean it's cool and all, but for the amount of money ($499 for the cheaper model) you'd spend on it you could get the following goodness instead: 1 Maytag 3.2-cubic foot, top-loading washing machine. Now you can stop hanging out at the laundromat, unless you're actually into it. 2.94 sets of the complete run of The Twilight Zone on DVD. The good one, not the '80s revival or the crappy one with Forest Whitaker. 3.81 bags of 2007 Kennedy half-dollars, 200 coins each. Don't spend them all in one place. 4.99 sets of the Lil Jon Pimp Cup Combo. Of course you'll want to splurge and get the full fifth set. 33.29 "Dramatic Chipmunk" t-shirts. Actually, it's a prairie dog but whatever. Get yours now and be relevant for the next 2 weeks! 41.65 brand-n...
David Hasselhoff – “Jump in My Car”

David Hasselhoff – “Jump in My Car”

Music
You remember those "You're the Star!" video booths they had at Disney, Six Flags and other amusement parks? For $5 you could put on some wacky props like oversized sunglasses and a wig, and then "star" in a video by lip synching. As an added bonus you received a cheap VHS copy of the video. Yeah, it seemed fun at the time, but when you watch the video years later, you just cringe and hope your significant other or children never see it. Well, David Hasselhoff seems intent on making a career out of that crap. And while the latest entry, "Jump in My Car," is no "Hooked on a Feeling," it has its strengths. And by "strengths" I mean that there were a few things that were only slightly less embarrassing than the rest of the video. KITT says: "Michael, this degrades us both."
