A bit late to the game… Ravens up 14-3 so far and the 49ers QB is looking like a rookie. This Oreo is my pick for best ad so far — unless a certain son’s ad plays.
Check out this B-36 dropping bombs at Eglin AFB, FL back in the day.
Even -fritz- was too young to have been around for this one.

While I’ll fully admit a healthy diet of VH-1 Classic’s “Metal Mania” videos this morning put me in a perfect 80s mood, a time when rock & roll and action movies didn’t take themselves so seriously, Bullet to the Head maintained that mood with a perfect combo of unapologetically senseless violence and usually corny one-liners humor. Like the Expendables movies, a cool throwback to when popcorn movies delivered these escapist themes. Also a sad reminder Walter Hill, a director who helmed a good chunk of personal favorites through the years, hasn’t been behind the camera for anything besides an episode of “Deadwood” and the “Broken Trail” mini-series in more than a decade. I say, damn shame. Threedonia, what say you?

There’s been over a hundred Fives since the Five began back in the late 50s. You’ve thrown out all manner & matter of opinions, arguments, and ridiculous-yet-charming theories. But now it’s time for something completely different. Or at least, scarily similar.
Starting this weekend I’ll be (occasionally) posting other people’s 5s/10s/50s, so instead of thinking of your own, you can make fun of somebody else’s.

This week: Rolling Stone’s The 50 Funniest People Now. Here’s their Top Ten. Are they right? close? or morons who wouldn’t know from funny if it smacked ‘em in the whoopie cushion?
10. Kristen Wiig 9. Bill Hader 8. Lena Dunham 7. Chris Rock 6. Amy Poehler 5. Matt Stone & Trey Parker 4. Jon Stewart 3. Tina Fey 2. Stephen Colbert 1. Louis C.K.
Except for Wiig (I loved Bridesmaids), and Hader (who seems harmless enough), and Stone & Parker (who take shots across the political spectrum), the rest are Dead to Me. Even if I used to love ‘em (Rock) or at least admire them (Fey) — now I am bored of them. Them and their open, loud, unabashed contempt for Conservative thought and Conservative folk.
What do you think?
And for those college football and Friday night lighters who say “screw the NFL”, don’t throw out the baby with the bathwater… if the NFL goes kaput so will your versions and tout de suite.
We lost two great cavalrymen. Continue reading 6 Years Ago Today (originally posted 2 FEB 2011)
