Peyton Place


Peyton Place in Springfield Va., is as an unassuming restaurant as it gets, blink and you miss it, you have to squint to see it. It's stuck in between a strip of stores 75 feet wide off of Backlick Rd., but I think it's got the best fried chicken I've tasted. They pressure cook their chicken, so the result is a light and thin skin and ultra crispy. This picture doesn't do it justice, when you get it, it looks as great as it tastes, very flavorful and very moist. I've eaten here many times and only once was the inside a bit dry, but I wasn't complaining.

Pictured is what they call a Snack Pack, a two piece meal, I added one wing to the order, but you get a choice of white or dark, and it comes with slaw, two giant potato wedges, two sour-dough rolls, sour cream for the wedges and butter. All this came to $7.36, pretty good deal, but I would of paid that just for the chicken. A very small fraternity of us know about the fried chicken at Peyton Place and want to keep it that way, it's already difficult to carry-out their popular chicken in the evening as it is.

They also have steaks, entrees and sandwiches too. Within the restaurant there is also an american saloon and a stage for live music. Note: when carrying out a large order, whichever box/container they use, it's best to release the hot air a few times to avoid moisture build up, it keeps the pressure cooked crispiness longer.

A "D" for effort.

Even if you have a mild interest in sports, you've seen the cards of the players that go along with that sport. And more than any other decade, I think the 70's take the cake when it comes to bizarre simplicity and just sheer wretchedness in personal hygiene and appearance. And more than any other sport, hilariously, hockey by far is the worst offender.

My Boat


This is my motor yacht, (in my mind) the Princess V Class V62. Due to financial restraints, a very small percent of the population of the world are able to own watercraft that exceeds the 40 ft length. But that doesn't mean we can't still get over by perusing their websites!! Some of my favs...

F#ck Copter


If your having a crappy day, just fly the Fuck Copter around your office and let everyone know how you feel.

Hey… we’re all jaded and sometimes you just don’t give a flying fuck… but wouldn’t it be nice if you could? Now you can give a flying fuck to a friend or loved one. This fine r/c helicopter is in the form of a giant hovering FUCK. It has two-channel control meaning it is always moving forward slowly. You control the hover and right and left turns. It’s really a genuine gift from the heart… Rather than telling someone you don’t care a rats ass about them, you can let them know you respect them enough to give a flying fuck. Awww… We’re tearing up right about now.

Important Note
The FUCK in the image above is blurred out, but when you get the real copter it’s not blurred… Capiche?

Ricky & Elmo

If you haven't seen this video of Ricky Gervais and Elmo by now, from the out-takes of Sesame Street, I'm proud to bring it to you here. It's very endearing and funny.
