Gay Marriage Part Deux

April 3, 2013 // 1 Comment

As hilarious as MIDWEST MO’s video was this morning, here’s the official “Man’s man” response.  And quite apropos considering at least half of facebook threw up little pink equals signs the other day.  I’m not sure that people realize it takes the supreme court months to figure something out and I’m fairly certain that Scalia and Ginsburg are not the social media giants we think they are.  Are these people going to remain equivalent for months on ...Click for More

Gay Marriage

April 3, 2013 // 0 Comments

We don’t often editorialize or give our opinions around here, you know, we tries to keep it professional yo.  But I’m driving into work this morning listening to Jonathan Brandmeier on WGN (don’t worry, I’m over 40 so it’s OK for me to listen to AM radio) and he is playing a clip from YouTube that has over 4 million views right now. The subject matter relates to a current hot button topic – gay marriage.  It’s a bunch of gay guys talking about what ...Click for More

New Pope

March 14, 2013 // 0 Comments

Let’s hope new Pope does better than new Coke.  The whole process is shrouded in mystery.  So here is a video that takes you back to the beginning to see how a lot of the current traditions came into being.   And in the former Pope’s honor, here is a video taken who knows where or when.  It’s good to see that while he was in charge of the entire Catholic Church, he still had time to smell the roses. ...Click for More

How Much Does it Cost to be Iron Man?

March 5, 2013 // 1 Comment

Don’t tell me that you haven’t asked that question at least once while looking forlorn into your online banking accounts.  Or maybe that’s just me on a bi-weekly basis.  Well wonder no more, for our friends over at put together a fantastically nerdy graph on what to work towards with your personal investments.  And as a bonus, they priced out Batman too! At our staff meeting this morning, me and the other MIDWEST M’s threw together our net ...Click for More

A New Looney Tunes Short

March 3, 2013 // 0 Comments

  I do love cartoons.  Maybe I’m beginning a mid-life crisis.  Maybe I’ve never grown up.  Either way, I love them and, judging from how popular our post on the 20 Best Cartoons of All Time was, I know you love them too. Here is a new Looney Tunes short starring Wile E. Coyote and The Roadrunner.  I was giggling watching this.  I’ve always wondered, would the Coyote know what to do if he ever caught the Roadrunner?  I’m sure he would be so shocked that ...Click for More

Viewer Mail

January 31, 2013 // 0 Comments

It’s been awhile since we’ve taken the time to respond to the tens if not twenties of e-mails we’ve gotten from our fans.  You spent nearly 12 seconds writing in to us, the least we could do is take time away from our jobs, family, and this blog to address your comments.  With that, here is our viewer mail. Q:  You used to cover manly shows like Sons of Anarchy, Walking Dead, and Breaking Bad.  Now it’s seems you only cover Buckwild and The Bachelor.  Are you ...Click for More

Battle of the Network Stars

January 10, 2013 // 0 Comments

The pseudo feud between FOX and ABC over diving shows got me thinking about a way to effectively and officially solve the problem.  The only rational choice is to settle this BATTLE OF THE NETWORK STARS style. You know, two men enter, one man leave.  Wait, that might be Thunderdome, which would be awesome also, but not the point. No, the point is we need to put together a ridiculous over the top competition pitting our favorite network stars against each other.  And this time I mean actual ...Click for More

Screw You, Mayan Longcount – Midwest Mark’s Bold Prediction

December 20, 2012 // 0 Comments

With Armageddon only mere hours away, I want to take to the blogosphere with my very own bold prediction of the end times.  It seems like every channel on TV and every news site on the net has an obsession with this Mayan prophesy hubbub… so what’s the deal? I figure that if the Armageddon can be predicted by ancient civilizations, old books, bearded drug addicts, kool-aid aficionados, Michael Stipe and dumb elderly mathematicians, it can absolutely be predicted by some random ...Click for More

Holiday Humor, or Yet Another Gift Idea

December 20, 2012 // 0 Comments

I was reminded of this little gem tonight and it is one of the funniest things to come from Saturday Night Live in quite a long time.  If you really don’t know what to get that special someone and MIDWEST MO’S suggestions are less than helpful, here’s the guaranteed failsafe fallback.  Happy ...Click for More

December 14, 2012 // 0 Comments

Verified proof that we have hit it big here at MWTVG, we have our very first confirmed celebrity commenter!  Is this an A-list celebrity?  No.  Is it a B-list celebrity?  No.  C-list?  Not quite.  This guy is of the caliber that he isn’t even on a list… I am talking about none other than BOBBY MILLIKEN – THE USELL GUY himself!! Responding just today to the semi-satirical piece I wrote five or six weeks ago essentially accusing him of being an enormous douche, he rose ...Click for More

Blast From The Past – The Newlywed Game

November 30, 2012 // 1 Comment

Game shows just aren’t what they used to be.  Don’t get me wrong, I’m way to young to have watched THE NEWLYWED GAME as originally broadcast.  Still though, I remember watching reruns of this show as a kid.  The show originally aired on ABC on July 11, 1966. Bob Eubanks was the original host of the show and managed to host 2,195 episodes in the shows first run.  He was only 28 years old when he began hosting.  He is credited with coining the phrase “making ...Click for More

Irony Or At Least I Think It Is

Look, I understand that I posted yesterday about how annoying product placement ads have become.  But still, in the spirit of Christmas, I feel the need to share interesting gift ideas when I come across them.  Sure enough, I’ve got one that can’t miss: Irony, Or At Least I Think It Is Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good ...Click for More

Homework Still Sucks

November 27, 2012 // 2 Comments

For our newer readers, I posted awhile back on the trials and tribulations of helping my 10 year old son write a realistic fiction paper.  As many of you commented about similar situations and experiences, I know you are all waiting on pins and needles to see how I/we did. Well, I may not be smarter than a 5th grader, but I am happy to say I/we got a 92% on our/his paper.  Still though, one of the teachers comments is going to haunt me (at least until the next homework assignment). She said, ...Click for More

Ding Fries Are Done

November 23, 2012 // 0 Comments

I heard my first Christmas song of the season today and it is the one that only ever makes me think of Family Guy’s Peter Griffin singing ding fries are done.  I don’t know what it is about this song, but once you hear it, you can’t un-hear it. I challenge you to get this song out of your head after you hear this:     Ding Fries Are Done   Is it stuck in your head now? I’m sure it is. What other songs do you hear that once you hear them, you can’t ...Click for More
