JOHN BUSCEMI
A Top 5 with the guy who made being a Trendforecaster, well, Trendy. Strong Island's own John Buscemi


Top 5 reasons you would never sponsor Rickk and Mike:
1. We don't do sloppy seconds.
2. Gavin would be devo'd.
3. Gavin? Bird would be devo'd.
4. The Elmo's would have no one left to think they were smarter than. Except for Megan.
5. Besides both being completely egomaniacal, overly competitive, self centered, narcissists. Forget it, your on.


Top 5 things people in San Diego know that no one else knows:
1. That hanging your sandy wetsuit from the handrail in front of your job is perfectly normal. Get a clue G B.
2. It's all about real estate. Everyone down here is in someway closing, escrowing, or re-fi-ing. Doubles, triples, quad-ski's. I can't cover my nut, and the cashier at Swami's is telling me about her 1 bedroom up on Neptune.
3. Using "like" or "super" in a sentence like you're Rain Man is normal.
4. They have a Little Italy. Get the fuck out a here.
5. Eating Chinese right across the way from Rick's booger slide spot.


Top 5 people to put on blast:
1. Meza; for the obvious reasons, but mostly for being the kid that took his kickball home so no one else could play with it.

3. The Witches Brew
4. Robert Moses Golf Course
5. X-Mas and New Years, are you fucking joking me. Just cancel it once you pass Ohio.  And New Years, all we get is a tape of Regis from 3 hours ago, get the fuck out a here.
