5 Things That Are Slightly Improving My Life...

In no particular order, I would like to offer up 5 of the "little-things" in my life...

I don't know how this site is around, or how it has been around as long as it has; I'm tempted to not tell you about it in fear of it being found out & shut down. What is it? A website where you can stream live television sporting events such as NHL, NBA, MLB, Soccer, and tonight I noticed they were featuring an episode of Lost! Slight Improvement: This website has allowed me to fist-pump and scream with my headphones on while I tracked my Buffalo Sabres' rise to 8th place in the Eastern Conference! I've shed tears for my Sabres before.

Don't worry, I'm not gonna get all pervy here! Not to say Felicia Day doesn't tickle any fancies, but her physical appearance is not the reason that this lady is on my list.

Slight Improvement: This lady is an actress who has taken her career by the ovaries, and has created a loyal fan base as a result of her nerdy ways. How? She was in season 7 of Buffy, and then that ended, so she was just another actress floating around Los Angeles; in her spare time she started playing World of Warcraft (or WoW for you fuckers out there), which lead to her playing it all of the time, thus followed by a full-fledged addiction.

Eventually, she kicked her addiction (seriously, it's an addiction) and wrote an idea for a show based around people who get immersed in online gaming; this would become The Guild (available @ http://www.watchtheguild.com ). An internet-based show that has done nothing but pick up more and more steam as it continues, it even got her a starring role in one of my favourite things ever: Dr. Horrible's Sing-A-Long Blog (directed by Joss Whedon).

While she's not on the top of Hollywood or any of that nonsense, she has created her own work, all of which is awesome, and for that, I have so much respect.


You ready for some top-secret-upcoming-Glen-Matthews-production-news? I'm working on creating a musical with Matt Chisholm & Chris Fitzgerald, both of whom worked on Attention Span TV, where I did "The Landlord With an Addiction to Eviction" skit!

Slight Improvement: As a result of our frankenstein, I am going out of my way to watch as many musicals as humanly possible. "I Got Life" from Hair is currently ringing in my ears ever since I downloaded the soundtrack. I can safely say that High School Musical genuinely let me down, it's as if they only went half-stupid, if you're gonna go half, just go the whole way! On the plus side, it did finally motivate me to track down that photo of Vanessa Hudgens. She's 20, I checked.

Please pass along your musical recommendations!


Music that my 15 year old self would have kicked the shit out of me for listening to.

Slight Improvement: Here's an excerpt from Ronnie Milsap's Pure Love:

"Pure love, baby it's pure love, Milk and honey and Captain Krunch and you in the morning, Pure love baby it's pure love, Ninety-nine and forty-four one hundreds percent pure love."


He also has another song called "Daydreams About Night Things" where he sings about masturbating at work! Together, Milsap and Tom Jones are collectively blowing my mind. I don't know what either of them were thinking, but I know it was brilliant and I love them both for their sacrifice, and contribution to the life that I live.

Do yourself a favor and download purchase the Tom Jones Best Of album and let the melodrama wash over you like a tidal wave of 70's machismo.
