GAMES: Every Jeopardy Game. Ever.

by

TREBEK.bmpYeah, pretty much what the title says. A website, called the J-Archive, has over 1,000 games archived from 1984, when the show premiered, to today. Quiz yourself on everything from “Potent Potables” to “Hitchcock’s Blondes” to “Kings Names Haakon” (for real). It’s strangely addictive, and we have a feeling we know what Alex Trebek does on sleepless nights: reading old questions aloud to 3 sleeping cats and a dog in his study. And then laughing hysterically to himself.

Now, if only the website could bring back his moustache… Sob.

(Please Note: This post was the fastest and easiest way for us to post the included picture. Have a nice weekend, kids.)

CLARIFICATION

by

We’re going to take a moment to be sincere- something that doesn’t happen often on this site. Earlier in the week we wrote a post based on an inaccurate quote attributed to Dustin Diamond. The actual quote (which has been mis-quoted on other sites) was, “I’m going to mold and sell my beast. And you know what, I will not give free copies away to friends or anything else, I might give one to Kimberley Locke, she needs one.” We regret basing a post around the erroneous quote, and apologize for creating any misunderstanding as to Mr. Diamond’s actual intent.

UNEMPLOYMENT CHECK: More 227 Goodness!

We’re continuing our February 2, 2007 (aka 2.2.7.) celebration here at BWE with the theme song to our favorite 80’s sitcom (after Out of This World of course). Don’t forget to thank us in 3 hours when you can’t get it out of your head!

Unless Conversational Jackee is more your thing…

Also, we threw in the Amen theme song after the jump, just cause it seems right! Can someone please get both these themes on mp3 for me?

The Office: I Know The Deelio… The Deelio of Life*

BENFRANKLIN.JPG*This title barely won out to “What Up My Spin-Stahhhs?”

An Open Letter to the Writers of The Office:

Dear Office Writers,

We’ve waiting nearly a year and a half to see Pam and Jim get together. We saw months of mutual flirting, a broken heart, a broken engagement. We watched Jim move to Stamford, then back to Scranton, then endured Pam and new girlfriend Karen engage in many a mope-off. And after all this, after all the ups and downs, now you are subjecting us to contrived Fruedian slips, drawn out confrontations, and a sunken-eyed Jim. Well, it needs to end. Now. We’re not sure how many more of these episodes we can sit through without tearing the hair out of our heads. Having to hear Pam say “I need a boyfriend” in front of Jim was going too far. And the saddest part? We’re starting not to care anymore. “The hell with all of ‘em!” we said out loud last night.

Thank you.
Sincerely,
The Best Week Ever.tv Staff, specifically, Michelle

Moving on…

Last night’s episode was hilaaaariouuuus! And good to see Steve Carrell back into his old groove — this was definitely the Michael Scott we were starting to miss! Nothing like hearing him talk a big game and then squirm out from underneath the stripper, feeling as though he was cheating on Jan with the very essence of Tide. And Michael at the sex shop was brilliant. But even better than that… TODD PACKER! We can’t tell you how many of our co-workers we greeted today with “Brett Roberts… tall, queer, handsome as ever!” Let’s add a p.s. to the above letter: MORE TODD PACKER.

TODDPACKER.JPGSo yes, many quotable quotes in this episode, with fine performances from each and every character (Dwight and Angela in partick) — but overall, the plot felt a little stale. There’s only so long they can draw the Pam Jim out thing, for real. Do you guys agree or am I all alone here?

We also would like to add that 30 Rock was amazing — we even enjoyed Tina Fey! And that anything involving doll hands and legs makes us LOL x infinity (thank you, Paul Ruebens.)

LISTEN UP: Cast No Shadows

  • Bag of Songs is celebrating Groundhog Day by posting shadowy songs by Oasis, Rufus Wainwright, Joni Mitchell and a couple of other artists.
  • I can’t wait for the new Kings of Leon album. Thankfully, Neiles Life posted a live EP of some old tracks to tide me over till April 3rd.
  • Peaches does Yoko Ono over at BigStereo. Not like that.
  • BadmintonStamps has an old Puff Daddy track. From way back in the day– before he gave birth to twins.
  • And finally, I Am Fuel, You Are Friends has a handful of Belly demos from the Star album. I’ll say it again- the 90’s are coming back. You’ll see.
