Ordinarily "V" is for Virgin.

Admirals have a promotion coming up on February 19th called "Don't be Like Mike" night in which

Any graduate of the DARE program can get into the game for $2 by bringing their graduation certificate to the Admirals’ office or the Bradley Center box office.

Also, anyone with the name Michael, Phelps, Mary Jane, Cheech, Chong, Weed – or Wied – can get a $2 ticket as well. Those who have won an Olympic gold medal also get the discount.

How cool is that? It even made the front page of Yahoo!, check it.

How much fun is David Letterman? For some years now Leno has been beating Letterman in ratings, but I'll never understand why, considering his interviews are downright hysterical, especially when it's someone he loathes (see: cast members of The Hills). And well the interview with Joaquin Phoenix is probably some sort of social experiment on his part it's still nonetheless very funny.

I knew it.

Last night I went to a real honest-to-goodness barber again, this time Nick's Barbershop. My barber's name was Roman, and he was Russian, which gave me flashbacks to GTA IV (Niko!). Anyways, the haircut took 30 minutes, which I at first thought was kind of long, but Roman explained that places like Cost Cutters only take 10 minutes to cut your hair because they get paid to do it quickly. At Nick's they allot 30 minutes to access the shape of your head and to make sure there's not a hair out of place. Plus it's one of the few times I've had a real convo with my barber, instead of just idle chitchat. I'll be adding it to the Art of Manliness Barbershop Locator.

Want to know how the "25 Things" note from Facebook got started? Slate might just have the answers.

It's funny that even after your absurdly long haircut, thanks to your bulbous head it will still look as bad as my $9 military haircut

just kidding Greg, I'm sure you look adorable

If anyone skips over his links, please make sure you stop and watch the letterman youtube. One of the best interviews I have seen.

It costs $9 for them to shave your head? Couldn't you have someone do it fo' free?

Is "V" usually for Vengeance?

I had to post these follow ups to his Letterman interview. His "music career" looks like it's going to be...phenomenal...and so pathetic.
