Random observation while waiting for the clock to strike 'beer'...

Inspired by this post at Cullen's site:

Did you ever notice that rock stars can become actors / actresses but actors / actresses cannot become rock stars?

I can think of a bunch of rock stars and musicians who have become fairly successful in movies and T.V. but I can only think of one actor / actress that has successfully jumped into music: Jack Black (Tenacious D). The only other person I can think of is John Schneider from the Dukes of Hazzard.

It seems to me that most of the time when an actor attempts to get into music, they are generally derided (think: Keanu Reeves / Dogstar) but when a musician becomes an actor it is looked at as cool.

What do you think?

I'm not exactly Mr. Pop-Culture so I'm sure there must be a few other examples of actors / actresses who have succesfully turned into musicians. Try and name me a few if you can..

Stupid questions, stupid answers...

One of my jobs at work is to manage our bug database. This is the place where we write up and track all of the various problems that are found with the software release that we are working on. Since I am a nit-picky little bastard and write lots of bugs, they put me in charge of the database.

Anyway, today I made a modification to one of the fields in the database and then sent out an e-mail to let everyone know about the change, along with the usual, 'let me know if you have any questions,' line at the end.

So of course, and I totally expected something like this, one of my wise-ass co-workers writes back with a long list of silly questions.

Here they are for your entertainment, along with my off-the-cuff answers.

Here are some Meaningless Questions. These are random questions off the top of my head that have no meaning or purpose, other than having fun. Feel free to answer them, or not, in the comments. Feel free to write in your own, different answers if you want to, or explain your answers... Whatever man! It's all good, so go nuts!

1. Starbucks or Dunkins'
2. Car or Pickup truck
3. Boston Globe or Boston Herald
4. Original, Unaltered Star Wars or New and Improved Star Wars
5. Steak or Chicken

Bonus: Fat Drug Addict Elvis or Thin Leather-Clad Elvis

There ya go! Have fun, or not... whatevah. It's Reward Friday!
