Michael Jordan: Still Awesome

13 Sep

Michael Jordan is obviously a huge cocky asshole, as witnessed by his Hall of Ffame induction speech last year where he basically shit on everyone who ever got in his way his entire life.  But you know what?  Michael Jordan can do whatever he wants because he is the best basketball player of all time by a mile.  I can’t stand when people start arguing who’s better between Kobe or MJ. Or saying “Is Lebron the next MJ?”  There is no next MJ.  Maybe people have forgotten about him since he hasn’t been in the league for awhile, but watch one highlight reel of Jordan on youtube and tell me he’s not the best ever.  Anyway this commercial for NBA 2K11 is awesome, basically telling off anyone who doesn’t think either him or his teams are the best ever.  Pretty awesome.

Former Playmate of the Year Hope Dworaczyk posed for MeinmyPlace a couple weeks ago. If you haven’t heard of the website Me in My Place, you need to go there immediately.  If you stay on it for less than 3 hours you should be punched in the face.  The site takes random girls (not famous) and shoots them in their apartments, in varying degrees of undress (but no full nudity).  Esquire picked up on them and did a full story, and now they also feature models doing the same thing.  What an idea.  MeinmyPlace

ESPN scribe Bill Simmon’s launched his website Grantland today, a mix of sports and pop culture.  Simmons’ first article is a classic. Grantland

Turd Ferguson Blog apparently has something called “Titty Tuesday.”  I just fired three writers from NSD for not thinking of this first. Turd Ferguson Blog

A hot girl doing handstands for a minute and  a half.  I realize this sounds stupid, but…it’s not.  I just watched this three times in a row.  iBlackedOut

As you might have heard Lenny Dykstra was just busted for trying to steal a car.  Here’s a long but interesting article from ESPN a couple years back profiling Lenny, from his great baseball career, his initial success as a “stock picker,” and then his inevitable collapse.  Dykstra sounds like Charlie Sheen without the porn stars.  ESPN

The Cut O’ Beef Index: Part V

13 May

Like Michael Jordan with the Wizards and Brett Favre six times, many people that left at the peak of their powers feel the urge to come back to prove they’ve still got it.  Maybe it’s the tedium of sitting on the same island and the same yachts every day, or maybe it’s the frustration in seeing young guns taking what used to be yours.  We here at NSD can’t get in the minds of the greats, but lucky for us, the pre-eminent guest writer of NSD, MemoFromTurner, felt the itch both creatively and physically (Quote: “I thought Lifestyles were the best out there!) and is back with two more Cuts O’ Beef, this time touching on the superficially classy and hipsters.  Enjoy.

Cut O’Beef: Beef Tartare
Celebrity Example: Ashley “Client 9” Dupre
Theme Song: “Tangerine” by Big Boi feat. T.I.


Our next Cut O’ Beef is the Beef Tartare.  Beef Tartare is superficially a classy, pricey Cut—found almost exclusively at swanky restaurants as a heavily garnished appetizer.  Cut through all the fanfare, however, and you’re still left with a piece of raw Beef, albeit one of generally high quality.  Beef Tartares may come dressed to the nines, well made-up and heavily perfumed but deep down they are just selling pure, raw sex appeal.  Beef Tartares can be found in 4-star hotel lobby bars in revealing cocktail dresses, sipping vodka sodas and eyeing down every investment banker that comes through the door.  A Beef Tartare is totally unafraid of maintaining eye contact, giving the undeniable impression that she knows that you know that she knows that you are giving her looks from across the bar (and she loves it).  Ever notice how most Cuts get self-conscious when trying out a tight, short skirt on NSD, constantly fidgeting and smoothing down the material because they are worried about showing too much? Beef Tartares don’t have that problem.    Continue reading
