I think I'm officially into the holiday season now. All it ever takes is a few trips to the stores (which are now totally decked out with Xmas stuff) and my annual tradition of watching "Planes, Trains and Automobiles" around this time of year to get me into it all. Sure, it's not as cool as Halloween, but that doesn't mean there's not plenty o' stuff to have fun with, and I'll be damned if there aren't just as many new candies that come out during the holiday season each year as there are come Halloween. Of the few new holiday candies I've tried out so far my favorite would have to be these...
Yes indeed, all the goodness of M&M's combined with a tasty mint flavor. How can you go wrong with that? Let's hope that these new mint chocolate M&M's aren't going to be a "limited edition" like the bag states. I'd definitely like to see them be a year-round flavor. While they really are good, I must warn you... don't try scarfing down a ton of these at once. You may be able to eat a full bag of regular M&M's no problemo, but you can only eat but so many of these mint chocolate ones before they start to make you feel nauseas. But hey, at least that means each bag is gonna last you a lot longer. And if mint isn't your thing, there's still the usual assortment of M&M's out there and the bags are all decked out for the holidays. The dark chocolate flavored M&M's are also a lot easier to find this time of year, andif you haven't had them, I definitely suggest picking up a bag cuz they're damned good too.
And for those of you who don't get excited by new candies, perhaps this will interest ya...
Virgil's Root Beer Party Keg! This was at my local grocery store mixed in with all of the other Xmas treats. I'm honestly not even sure if it's intended to be a holiday item or not, but it does kinda look like the mighty Virgil has emerged from the North Pole to bring the kids some frothy mugs of his finest root beer! And when the kids drink his hearty beverage, they too will be able to grow the same impressive facial hair! Virgil is a holiday hero! Damnit, now I need a picture of Virgil serving up that fine root beer on a t-shirt. From what I hear, this is actually some of the best tasting root beer out there and I look forward to cracking open this bad boy. Sure, it's almost 20 bux... but who can pass up on owning an entire KEG of this stuff? Michael J. Fox couldn't, and neither can I.
In other news, the trailer for StagKnight is out. For those of you new to the site or who don't remember, Stagknight is a cheezy horror/comedy from the UK and our web site has a small cameo during the movie. In fact, the director just sent me a screenshot of it:
Pretty spiffy! No word yet on whether the web site will be walking down the red carpet though. But if it does, it'll definitely be wearing Versace, because fuck that Vera Wang shit. Only Versace knows how to dress the site right.
Random survey: Aside from drinking it, list other possible uses for a giant keg of root beer.
Random survey #2: Since there was never a spin-off movie about the life of Owen from Planes, Trains and Automobiles (of of greatest supporting character roles ever), share your thoughts on what a movie based on him would be like. Furthermore, explain the origins of the insane facial expression and nasal sound he makes.

Removing ghost pirates.
I need me a keg.
peety (Guest) on 11/10/2006 2:15 pm
Cleaning cuts, removing paint, destroying sight, drowning, bathing, the list goes on! Horray for british horror comedy's!

I guess Donkey Kong could throw them, for some variety. It'd probably take more than one hammer hit to break, so it'd be enough to off Mario.
Steve (Guest) on 11/10/2006 3:30 pm
I'd like to see a movie with Owen as the chief of police of a small town. Could you imagine that guy interrogating a criminal?
"All right now, Ssss*Snooorrrrrrrtttttttt*anchez. You tell me where the orphans are and I won't sic my wife on ya'."
Oh yeah! And whenever there's conflict, he just steps aside and lets his wife take care of things.
Plus more absurd remarks about how strong she is.
"She may be small, but she's strong. One time, a horse kicked her in the back of the head. She didn't fall or nothin'."

A big keg of root beer sounds like some kind of special product at A&W All American Food or something.
Say didn't Homer Simpson use a shaken root beer can to blow up a building in an episode of the Simpsons,once? Imagine an entire keg of root beers. Hydrogen bomb has met it's match.

A Keg of Root Beer?
All I'd need for a bitchin' party is a root beer keg and Guitar Hero 2, and all the ladies will line up for miles! Who knows, maybe -RoG and -PoX- will come, and Tom Fulp and Stamper will come, too!

Holy Crap!! We've had those mint M&M's in Australia for months now! That's crazy that we have a flavour of M&M's in australia before you guys!
They weren't Christmas ones though, but they do say limited edition. You've given me a craving for them now, so hopefully the limited time only isn't already up.
Steve (Guest) on 11/10/2006 9:10 pm
Keg of root beer, eh?
For some reason what keeps coming into my head is a grade or high school version of a kegger.
I can see it now, some nerds throw a LAN party, get a root beer keg and jokingly call it a kegger. The tougher kids who are desperate for alcohol show up for the keg. Extreme disappointment when they learn there's no booze.
Also extreme disappointment for the nerds when they get beaten up for tricking the jocks this way.
In the end, HILARIOUS situation.
Alex (Guest) on 11/11/2006 8:09 am
Actualy, something like what Steve said did happen.I bought some root beer kegs and jokingly called it a keeger. Minor root beer intoxication all around and one small fight, but all in all, it was a good party.
Doctor dumbass (Guest) on 11/11/2006 8:02 pm
You can use the keg or a chair. Btw, it(Virgil's) really is good root beer.
Joe Red (Guest) on 11/11/2006 10:57 pm
That keg root beer is pretty good, RoG, but if you ask me, the cream soda is better. Of course, I haven't had any in at least two years ever since my nearest Wild Oats store stopped carrying it.

virgil looks like jesus. virgils jesus juice? hmm.
Jim Hysell (Guest) on 11/12/2006 1:10 pm
When you're done drinking the root beer, you can donate the empty keg to a homeless man to live in.
nuffels (Guest) on 11/12/2006 4:02 pm
i'd add the keg to my drums and/or cut the top off and roll down a hill in it. as for owen, he's got a furball in his throat. DUH!

after I read this, I went out and bought a bag of those mint M&M's... let me tell you, you were right. Those are some good stuffs.
Keith (Guest) on 11/14/2006 8:07 pm
I recently drank a root beer-alcohol cocktail of some form. I suppose Michael Jackson could use that as a replacement for his "Jesus Juice."
the boy (Guest) on 11/16/2006 6:36 am
Damn, I'm so behind on shit. But dude, the ROOT BEER!? Awesome. Virgil = Lumberjack Jesus = comedy gold. Amazing.
Ryan (Guest) on 11/22/2006 1:51 am
Arrrgh. I can't find these Mint M&Ms anywhere in my area.
my GF wanted some, I couldn't find any so I tried to pass of beads of glass as the m&ms...she knew right away.
