Video Fun: Garfunkel and Oates (they really love Jesus)


By web gangsta | Published:

Perhaps you’ve already have heard the sweet comedic songwriting stylings of GARFUNKLE AND OATES.

Garfunkle and Oates is a duo, consisting of Kate Micucci, who you may recall played the ukelele as Gooch on the TV show SCRUBS; and Riki Lindhome who has appeared on BIG BANG THEORY and a number of other TV shows and movies.  Together as Garfunkle and Oates, they are likely best know for their classic hit PREGNANT WOMEN ARE SMUG:

Did that leave you wondering where else could such talent go? Well worry no more, as Web Watch is here with a fuller list of delightful tunes for you to enjoy:

What are the items you carry on your person every day? (They could save your life)


By web gangsta | Published:

Have you ever heard of the acronymEDC?

It stands for EVERYDAY CARRY, and represents those few things that you always carry on your, no matter what.

For some people, it’s the standard — watch, wallet (with specific credit cards, shopping cards, insurance cards, family photos), cell phone, car key, house key.  A pocket full of change.  Maybe some lip balm.

Women have it a bit easier, as various purse sizes allow for a wide expanse of Everyday Carry items to be toted around like (literally) there’s no tomorrow.  Heck, one day we even watched a woman pull out a 1lb bag of coffee beans from her purse that she just happened to be carrying around with her for no observable reason that evening.  (Ask us for the full story, next time you see us out and about. It’s a hoot.)

Some of Web Watch’s friends insist on carrying switchblade knives of various deadly lengths.  Others prefer the more subtle Swiss Army Knife.

Want to avoid getting norovirus? Stop doing laundry


By web gangsta | Published:

If you’ve ever been sick while on vacation, you know what a horrible experience it can be.  Trust Web Watch on this, as we spent 2 miserable days holed up in our Disney hotel room on one vacation to the Happiest Place on Earth, unable to leave the relative comfort of the room for any length of time.

Yeah, it wasn’t pretty.

And if you’ve ever been sick while on a cruise ship where you don’t even have the luxury of finding a place to escape like you would have the opportunity to do if you were on land, then you can take the Web Watch Disney experience and multiply that by 100.

Five items men should never wear, ever again


By web gangsta | Published:

Take a good, long look at your closet, gentlemen.

Are there things there that you’re holding onto, just in case you may need it one day?

Old Halloween outfits, sports jerseys from old softball teams you played on?  Concert t-shirts for bands that have since broken up, that you can wear un-ironically for those jaunts to hipsterville?

You know we’re judging you when you wear that shirt from the 1996 Olympics.  We’re all wondering why you’re wearing a shirt (a t-shirt, at that) that’s over 15 years old.  We get it. You were there.  15 years is a long time to keep a t-shirt around; maybe it’s time for you to clear your closet out of some of that crap.   Besides, how many of those shirts do you really need?

The Gayest Cities in America


By web gangsta | Published:

Web Watch knows a few people who have moved around the country for their relationships (or lack thereof in their former location).

We understand how important it can be to feel included in one’s neighborhood (whether that neighborhood is as small as a few city blocks, a suburban subdivision, or a larger metropolitan area).  If you’re comfortable with WHO you are, but not comfortable WHERE you are, then chances are it’s not you that’s the problem, it’s those who are around you that are.

Want to stay healthy? Stop sleeping with your pets


By web gangsta | Published:

This year’s flu season seems to be a bit out of control, so everyone is looking for ways to stay as healthy as possible given the circumstances.

Some people are just working from home for weeks on end while the funk runs through their office co-workers.  Others are keeping their kids home from school or daycare for the same reason – which is a shock to everyone that there are people who will actually keep their kids out of school for illness reasons!

There’s the over-reliance on anti-bacterial products, using a tissue-wrapped pen to punch your ATM code into the machine, doing everything one can think of to avoid touching any potentially unclean surface that may be contaminated with another person’s germs.

How much money do doctors make an hour?


By web gangsta | Published:

They say that doctors make a ton of money.

And some really do.

But after you take into consideration the many long hours that they put into education and refining their skills and knowledge, some would say that its relatively fair compensation for what they have to go through to be able to fix us when things go horribly wrong physically.

Really, would you want a doctor that wasn’t highly compensated taking care of your body?

How to tell which female body types men are attracted to


By web gangsta | Published:

Men and women begin their mating dance by being attracted first to physical traits of their potential partner.   Long-term committment comes from everything else that’s attached to those physical traits.

But that does leave one unanswered question: are specific types of people attracted to specific body types?

What do women want? Sex. How do they want it? Like this…


By web gangsta | Published:

Women can be finicky.

On the one hand, they want to be treated like a princess.  On the other, they like to also be 100% completely in charge of their destiny.

Who’s to say that the two need to be mutually exclusive?  Continue reading WHAT DO WOMEN WANT? SEX. HOW DO THEY WANT IT? LIKE THIS…

4 Rules of the Laundromat that Everyone Should Know


By web gangsta | Published:

When was the last time you visited a laundromat?

Here’s a better question: if you have a washer and dryer at home, would you ever find yourself with a need to go to a laundromat ever again?

Web Watch would say, “yes, you can find reason to go to a laundromat even if you have a perfectly fine washer and dryer at home.”

Let us explain…

Take the Live Free Challenge for a year: Don’t buy your kids anything


By web gangsta | Published:

Hattie Garlick has a plan.

For 2013, she decided on a unique New Year’s resolution, to try to raise her son Johnny as cost-free as possible for a year.

That’s right — she’s not going to spend any money for anything that’s specifically geared towards her 2-year-old son.

Can you name the Most Overplayed Song of All Time?


By web gangsta | Published:

Despite what the “experts” say about Pandora, Spotify, or even iPod users — it’s said that the best radio station in the world still only plays a small selection of songs that their listeners want to hear.

Why?

Because as soon as the station plays a song that the listener doesn’t care for, they change the station immediately.

Don’t believe us?  Then why does Pandora have a “thumbs down” button?  It’s not because Pandora cares about the listener’s feedback – it’s because Pandora uses that as a way to “change the station” as soon as a song comes on that the listener doesn’t want to hear.

It serves the exact same purpose, but keeps the listener tuned into Pandora.  Pandora is just another radio station in that regard, if you really think about it.

What’s your roller derby name?


By web gangsta | Published:

We won’t lie.  Web Watch loves us some roller derby.

The matches are wildly entertaining, it’s a relatively inexpensive evening out, and you’ll be laughing and cheering for your favorites all night long.  We can’t recommend attending a local match in your area highly enough.

But there is one thing that’s always nagging us:

Everybody loves football. (Women’s golf? Not so much)


By web gangsta | Published:

There’s a reason that the entire world stops their day-to-day life and all attention turns to Super Sunday to watch the Best Two Teams in Football duke it out in the Super Bowl each year.

It’s because everybody knows that football – and the Super Bowl – are awesome.

How do we know?  We have proof!
