By now, everyone knows that the Ohio State football games will not be on regular cable TV for many games this year (if not, how can you call yourself a fan?! but to summarize there is an issue with the new TV channel "Big Ten Network" and Time Warner, Comcast, etc., so DirectTV is the only one carrying it) - BUT DON'T WORRY, these local bars & restaurants in Columbus will be showing the game:

    Owen Wilson isn't the only Depressed Celebrity

    Here are just some of the famous people in the world who are (or have been) depressed (and many of them have contemplated suicide if not attempted):

  • Abraham Lincoln (1809- 1865) - President of the United States
  • Sigmund Freud (1856-1939) - Scientist, polemic, revolutionary, doctor and analyst. - "According to numerous biographers, Freud often obsessed about his sex life and money; he wrote 900 love letters to the woman of his affections; he suffered bouts of depression and despair; he frequently seethed with resentment at rivals...Freud's demons and quirks sparked his desire to learn more about human motivation and behavior."
  • Marilyn Monroe (1926-1962) - Actress, model - "(Marilyn) couldn't beat chronic depression--and ultimately paid for it with her life. At the end of her short, wild career, Monroe was under the constant care of a psychiatrist, and was prone to mixing prescription drugs with alcohol."
  • Greg Louganis (1960-) - Olympic 5-time medalist in diving - "Louganis...first experienced depression at age 12 when a doctor told him that because of knee damage, he would have to give up gymnastics and his dream of competing in the Olympics...Louganis attempted suicide by downing aspirin and Ex-Lax, trying again twice before the age of 18. While counseling sessions accomplished little, Louganis found that diving - asport less grueling for the knees- was a satisfying way to express his physical talents. By 1971 he had qualified for the Junior Olympics. Fire years later, at the age of 16, Louganis won a silver medal at the Montreal Olympics in the 10-meter platform diving competition. He went on to win gold medals in the 1984 and 1988 Olympic games."
  • Alanis Morissette (1974-) - Musician, songwriter - "While on tour to promote her platinum album, Jagged Little Pill, Morissette began to feel helpless. 'Schedule-wise, my health and peace of mind weren't a priority,' she told reporters. 'there had been this dissonance in the midst of all the external success. Because on the one hand, I was expected to be overjoyed by it, and at the same time I was disillusioned by it.' To combat her depression, Morissette traveled to India and Cuba, read, competed in triathlons and reconnected with friendships that she had let lapse. Feeling better within a year, she went on to produce a second hit album."
  • Georgia O'Keefe (1887-1986) - Artist - "Georgia O'Keefe was so deathly afraid of being unoriginal that she destroyed all of her paintings shortly before her 30th birthday. In the 1920's her husband had an affair with a woman 40 years his junior and O'Keefe was briefly hospitalized for depression, but emerged feeling reborn."
  • Jean-Claude Van Damme (1960-) - Actor -"Throughout his vibrant career in film, Van Damme has used drugs, been diagnosed with cyclic manic depression and accused of spousal abuse. As a teen-ager, he took refuge in karate, ballet and in daydreams, which he calls "rosy dreams". Today he takes medication to help mitigate the effects of his illness."
  • Tipper Gore (1948-) - Advocate and wife of former Vice President, Al Gore - "Tipper Gore succumbed to depression after her son nearly died in a car accident in 1989. She was diagnosed around 1991, tried various medications and sought professional guidance from a social worker friend. She fought to raise awareness for sufferers by coordinating the first-ever White House Conference on Mental Illness."
  • Sting (1951-) - musician, artist - "Sting has spent the past few years wrestling with grand issues: dredging up painful childhood memories for the book; agonizing over global politics; and reuniting, for the first time in more than a decade, with his old band mates from the Police for one feverishly anticipated, ultimately unsatisfying performance. "I was in a depression for a year or two," he says matter-of-factly. So as he directs this session, he seems relieved to be in a situation he can control. And for Sting, qualities like control, focus and structure are essential to his ability to create his distinctive, ever evolving sounds."
  • Owen Wilson (1968-) - actor - "At 12:10 p.m. on August 26, 2007, Owen Wilson was rushed to St. John's Hospital in Santa Monica, California, by ambulance. Initial reports cited the reason as dehydration, however it has been reported that he was discovered with superficial wounds to his wrists and a near-empty bottle of pills in the bathroom of his Santa Monica home, by his younger brother Luke. Andrew called 911 at 11:59 a.m. Police subsequently confirmed that they were called to the home following reports of a suicide attempt; they resolved the call in just under five hours. Wilson was later transferred to the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, CA, where his condition was described as serious, but later upgraded to good condition. On August 27, 2007, Wilson issued a statement: "I respectfully ask that the media allow me to receive care and heal in private during this difficult time."

    "I am not gay!" Larry Craig Quotes

    Larry Edwin Craig (born July 20, 1945) is an American politician from the U.S. state of Idaho. A Republican, he has served in the United States Senate since 1991. Previously he served in the U.S. House of Representatives representing Idaho's 1st congressional district (1982-1991). Including his service in the House of Representatives, Craig is the second-longest serving member of the United States Congress in Idaho history, trailing only William Edgar Borah. Craig was arrested and pled guilty to disorderly conduct in a men's bathroom in 2007.

  • I am not gay!
  • A free state cannot exist, our free state of the United States collectively, cannot exist without the right of the people to defend themselves.
  • Agreements are always the product of time and place.
  • Breast cancer deaths in America have been declining for more than a decade. Much of that success is due to early detection and better treatments for women. I strongly encourage women to get a mammogram.
  • Congress has a responsibility to make sure our taxpayer dollars are being spent responsibly and effectively, and at the same time, that our men and women in uniform have everything they need to carry out the War on Terror.
  • Consumers are increasingly feeling that they are being taken for a ride.
  • Flag desecration is not a constitutional issue for the courts. It is a political one that belongs to the people.
  • I'm for anything that lets people come here to work legally. There are more protections for workers who are here legally than for those who are not. It's also safer for the workers and employers have a more consistent pool of workers.
  • Laws protecting the United States flag do not cut away at the freedom of speech guaranteed in the First Amendment... Congress made this position clear upon passage of the Flag Protection Act of 1989, which prohibited desecration of the flag.
  • The simple truth is, the short-term solution is for the FDA to allow more importation of safe vaccines from other nations. But the long-term solution is to get more vaccine production within the U.S.
  • We came to Iraq to liberate them and to make our world a safer place.

  • Lying to NFL commissioner Roger Goodell about everything
  • Thinking his friends would stick up for him and not rat him out

    Friday, August 24, 2007 – Room for Error? Or Room for Air?

    Greetings Listers!

    Let’s play the word association game! No. 2 pencils… book bags… lunchbox… recess… pop quiz. Yep, it is that time of the year again. The first day of school has crept up on summer like a bully from the back of the bus. And whether you are jumping on your first yellow bus, attending a new school, or driving to night classes after work, the first day of class can always be a little unnerving. Do you have enough pens? Pencils? Paper? Did you buy the right books? What are you going to wear? Is your teacher going to be cool? Who will you sit next to? But don’t worry, because there are always those cute icebreaker games - that tend to make you more uncomfortable instead of less.

    “Hi, my name is Ryan. I am from Canton, Ohio. I am 23 years old and I visited the world’s largest ball of string for the 17th straight year again this summer.”

    The crazy thing is – once you are done, you start to miss those annoying little things. All those people were right; school days are honestly the best days of your life. Back then, there was plenty of room for error – now, there is barely room for air. Grade school, childhood, high school and even college is a breeze compared to being an adult. But with the responsibilities of being a working adult, come the freedoms and adventures of life. So whether you are lugging your backpack or shoulder-saddling your briefcase out the door in the morning, remember this: “The whole purpose of education is to turn mirrors into windows.” So, what do you see in that glass?

    Largest Superhero Packages

    Superheroes may not all be packing heat or have a fully-loaded utility belt, but all those men in tights have one thing in common... large packages. Here are the superheroes with the biggest packages (measured by sock stuffing ability):

    1. The Incredible Hulk - 4 ½ socks - everything else is so large (and unfortunately for Bruce Banner - green...)
    2. Superman - 3 ½ socks - come on, he is Super"Man", even though Clark Kent seems pretty insecure
    3. Captain America - 3 socks - Steve Rogers is Captain America, not Captain Asia
    4. Human Torch - 3 socks - Johnny Storm's line-up of ladies is proof
    5. Batman - 1 sock - the fact that Bruce Wayne needs that utility belt speaks for something
    6. Spiderman - ½ sock - unfortunately for Peter Parker, the spider bite didn't cause any swelling

    "Is our children learning?" and other "Bushisms"

    These are some quotes from President George W. Bush that have become commonly known as "Bushisms."

  • The most important job is not to be governor, or first lady in my case.
  • I think anybody who doesn't think I'm smart enough to handle the job is misunderestimating.
  • Actually, I this may sound a little West Texan to you, but I like it. When I'm talking about when I'm talking about myself, and when he's talking about myself, all of us are talking about me.
  • Dick Cheney and I do not want this nation to be in a recession. We want anybody who can find work to be able to find work.
  • The California crunch really is the result of not enough power-generating plants and then not enough power to power the power of generating plants.
  • Rarely is the question asked, . . . is our children learning?
  • Our enemies are innovative and resourceful, and so are we. They never stop thinking about new ways to harm our country and our people, and neither do we.
  • First, I recognize we live in a momentous time. For those of you watching, we seem to have a mechanical flaw.
  • That makes sense to me, doesn't it?
  • The United States and China are two nations divided by a vast ocean.
  • We have a big border between Texas and Mexico.
  • The primary component of gasoline is crude oil.
  • You can't read a newspaper if you can't read.
  • I would still invade Iraq even if Iraq never existed.
  • One has a stronger hand when there's more people playing your same cards.
  • As you know, my position is clear – I’m the commander guy.

    On the Road Again

    Greetings Listers!

    Been traveling much this summer? I’ve been moving around so much I feel like a drug-trafficking husband of an untrustworthy stewardess (bad analogy?). And tomorrow, I am actually leaving again, this time heading to Nut Ridge, in the Finger Lakes region of upstate New York. The crazy thing is, I actually found a ton of lists about the area on Notable Residents of Ithaca, NY; Famous Alumni of Cornell University; and Top 10 Best Wine Country Inns just to name a few. Then I realized, it’s not just this area, but everywhere. Hundreds of listers have created thousands of lists - some about small towns, some about big cities, and some about their favorite vacation spots. You can find lists about local favorites and travel top 10s.

    Maybe you have some entertaining ideas to add to this list of top 10 things to do around the campus of Ohio State? Everyone already knows about the Oval right?

    Or maybe you know of another intersting attraction in Wichita, Kansas besides Ty’s Diner?

    Do you even know where on earth Chandigarh is located? If so, have you ever been to Sector 17?

    From there, dig a hole through the center of the earth and you’ll end up somewhere in between some more familiar places; like Las Vegas, New York City, and the OC.

    Or maybe you want you’d just rather fly? Try one of these top 10 international airlines!

    Wherever you live, or wherever you end up, create a list about it! If you share what you know and what you’ve learned about your favorite places in the world, you may someday find it flourishing because they heard about it on If nothing else, it’s also a great way to vent about your most despicable places you’ll never visit again.

    Entourage's Gary Busey Quotes

    William Gareth Jacob Busey, Sr. (born June 29, 1944) is an Academy Award-nominated and Golden Globe Award-nominated American film and stage actor. He has recently become a recurring guest cameo in the HBO TV series "Entourage" and a fan favorite. Here are some of his crazy quotes from the show (and his life):

  • Entourage: Gary's Desk
  • “ I painted George Hamilton white. I took 200 pounds off Dom DeLuise by painting him with vertical stripes.”
  • You worked craft service on Lethal Weapon 1 didn’t you?
  • I know you. You are a gut maggot with no guts.
  • What is emotional confusion you ask? It’s like running naked through a cornfield backwards at midnight.
  • Nothing changes like changes, because nothing changes but the changes.
  • Drinking your own blood is the paradigm of recycling.
  • So... you've come to acquire my newly-acquired desk.
  • Fear is the dark room where the Devil develops his negatives.
  • Have a mind that's open to everything, get attached to nothing.
  • I've been told by doctors and surgeons that I have the energy of ten men who have normal jobs.
  • My dark side, my shadow, my lower companion is now in the back room blowing up balloons for kids' parties.
  • The experiences that God gave me to go through... which were cocaine, which were extravagant living in the fast, fast, fast, fast, fast lane, see?
  • There has got to be more to life than being a really, really, ridiculously good actor.
  • “Imagine the peace symbol. The peace symbol has three pieces in it. One piece is emotion, that's your body. Another piece has spirit in it, that's your fuel. Another piece has intellect in it and that's your steering wheel. You can never overdo the fuel that goes into the body, which is the emotions and the steering wheel to drive it.”
  • “When you get lost in your imaginatory vagueness your foresight will become a nimble vagrant.”
  • It's good for everyone to understand that they are to love their enemies, simply because your enemies show you things about yourself you need to change. So in actuality enemies are friends in reverse.

    Top 10 Ways to Win an America's Vote Talent Show

    Most Americans already know all of this, you just don't know it. Since the influx of reality TV 10 years ago, we have all been instinctively brainwashed with these ten tips that could easily win you "American Idol" or "America's Got Talent" or whatever show you need votes from the American audience to win.

    1. When the camera zooms in on you at the end of your act and the host comes out to ask you questions, hold up the number of fingers that correlates to the phone number (or text message) they need to call.
    2. Make sure you answer the questions with a balance of wit, charm, intelligence and don't forget the tears.
    3. In the promo videos the producers shoot for you to show before your act, find the sappiest, down-to-earth, heartwarming story you can that will wet every cheek in the audience and at home.
    4. Don't be afraid to give hell to the guy in the far left judges seat (Simon or Piers or whoever fits the mold) when he rips your act apart and hears boo from the crowd (though he usually is the only one qualified to be making any judgments out of the three).
    5. If you are singing, no need to write your own lyrics (since no one in the biz today does either), just choose any song from the top 10 charts from any year that fits your genre.
    6. If you are a guy, don't be afraid to take your shirt off and flex those abs... if you are a girl, don't be afraid to take your shirt off either (or at least wear something skanky).
    7. The younger you are, the better - talent plus pre-puberty is what America is most impressed with - so if you can, lie about your age.
    8. Any drama (breaking up with boyfriends, wives giving birth, dads on deathbeds, etc.) you can create during the audition phase is a plus, the TV cameras will be drawn to it like Michael Jackson to daycare, and the more TV exposure the better.
    9. Don't forget where you came from, or at least don't let America realize you have.
    10. If you are a guy, flirt with the judge in the middle seat (if its Paula and you're daring, you can even sleep with her)... if you are a girl, flirt with the guy in the far right judges seat (remember, whichever hand makes an L when you stick out your thumbs is the left).

    Who is Merv Griffin?

    Keep hearing about Merv Griffin on the news but have no clue who he was? Here is a quick summary of his life in list form.

  • Birth - He was born on July 6, 1925 in San Mateo, California to Mervyn, Sr. a stock-broker and the former Rita Robinson, a homemaker.

  • Childhood - Raised as a Roman Catholic, at the age of seven he was staging neighborhood carnivals and churning out his own one-page newspaper.

  • Radio Career - Griffin started as a singer on radio at age 19, appearing on San Francisco Sketchbook, a nationally syndicated program based at KFRC.

  • Overweight - Griffin was slightly overweight as a teenager, which disappointed his radio fans seeing him for the first time to the point of laughter. Embarrassed by this rude reaction, Griffin resolved to lose weight and change his image. He was true to his word and matured into a handsome big-band vocalist.

  • Big Shot - Freddy Martin was a fan of the radio show and asked Griffin to tour with his orchestra, which he did for four years.

  • First Album - Griffin earned enough to form his own record label, Panda Records, and his self-released album Songs by Merv Griffin was the first American album recorded on magnetic tape.

  • One Hit Wonder - He became popular with nightclub audiences as a solo act. He scored a number-one record hit with "I've Got a Lovely Bunch of Coconuts", which sold over three million copies.

  • On Film - During one of his nightclub performances, he was discovered by Doris Day, who arranged for a screen test at Warner Bros. Studios. His open-mouthed kiss with Kathryn Grayson in his debut film, "So This Is Love" (1953), was the first such kiss in a Hollywood film since the introduction of the Production Code in 1934.

  • Do-do-Do-do-Do-Do-do - One of Merv's better-known musical compositions would be the theme song for Jeopardy.

  • TV Appearances - He appeared regularly on such television shows as "The Arthur Murray Dance Party" and "The Jack Paar Show".

  • Game Show Host - From 1958 to 1962 he hosted a game show produced by Mark Goodson and Bill Todman called "Play Your Hunch". The show appeared on all three networks, but primarily on NBC. He also hosted a primetime game show for ABC called Keep Talking.

  • Talk Show Host - Griffin later substituted for Paar on The Tonight Show, leading NBC to offer him his own daytime talk show in 1962. That program failed, but NBC offered him the opportunity to host a new game show, Word for Word, in 1963, which Griffin produced as well.

  • Jeopardy - This led Griffin to produce the far more successful Jeopardy!. A reverse on the classic quiz show format in which contestants are given answers and must supply the questions, Jeopardy premiered on NBC on March 20, 1964 hosted by Art Fleming the show succeeded and lasted for 11 years.

  • MGS - The Merv Griffin Show aired in a variety of time slots throughout North America. Many stations ran it in the daytime, some broadcast it opposite Johnny Carson's The Tonight Show, and it was carried for many years in prime time on WNEW in New York. Stations had the option of carrying either a 60-minute or a 90-minute version. Merv's announcer-sidekick was the veteran British character actor Arthur Treacher, who had been his mentor.

  • Wheel Keeps Turning - Griffin was allowed to produce the show's successor, Wheel of Fortune. Premiering on January 3, 1975, Wheel became a modest hit on daytime television with Chuck Woolery and Susan Stafford as host and hostess. But it became a phenomenon when on September 13, 1983 Wheel hit the syndication market with Pat Sajak and Vanna White in the same respective roles.

  • Richest Man in the Biz - Upon his retirement, he sold his production company, Merv Griffin Enterprises, to Columbia Pictures Television unit for $250 million, which was the largest acquisition of an entertainment company owned by a single individual at that time. Following the sale, Forbes named him the richest Hollywood performer in history. He retained the title of executive producer of both shows until his death.

  • Real Estate Mogul - Griffin ventured into real estate, purchasing the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills. He also purchased Resorts Hotel and Casino, formerly Chalfonte-Haddon Hall Hotel in Atlantic City from Donald Trump in 1988. In the 1980s, Griffin purchased Paradise Island in the Bahamas for $400 million from Donald Trump, but he later sold it for just $125 million.

  • Death - It was publicized that Griffin's prostate cancer, treated originally in 1996, had returned and that he was admitted to Cedars Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles. On August 9, 2007 it was reported that Merv Griffin was in grave condition; he died three days later on August 12, 2007.
