Bad Guy (Tough Words)

My Two Cents: King Kong

Hmm. Saw the trailer for King Kong this morning. *yawn* Looks like every other flick out there, didn't really stand out. The natives looked kinda nifty, but everything else looked blasé...that kinda Jurassic-Park-with-a-blue-grey-filter visual technique that seems so popular these days. Naomi Watts looks good, and Jack Black...well, as much as I get a kick out of him, I find it hard to buy him in a straight role.

Par for the big-budget cinema course, basically.

A tough old cowboy once counselled his grandson that if he wanted to live a long life, the secret was to sprinkle a pinch of gunpowder on his oatmeal every morning. The grandson did this religiously and lived to the age of 110. He left 4 children, 20 grand-children, 30 great-grandchildren, 10 great-great-grand-children and a fifty-foot hole where the crematorium used to be.


This little guy is sitting at the bar just staring at his drink. He's been sitting there for half an hour when this big trouble-making truck driver steps next to him, grabs his drink and gulps it down in one swig. The poor little guy starts crying. "Come on man, I was just giving you a hard time," says the truck driver. I'll buy you another drink. I just can't stand to see a man crying."
"This is the worst day of my life," says the little guy between sobs. "I can't do anything right. I overslept and was late to an important meeting, so my boss fired me. When I went to the parking lot, I found my car was stolen and I have no insurance. I grabbed a cab home but, after the cab left, I discovered I had forgotten my wallet in it. At home I found my wife in bed with the gardener. So I came to this bar and was thinking about putting an end to my life, and you show up and drink the damn poison"


Two Texans were out on the range talking about their favourite positions. One said, "I think I enjoy the rodeo position the best."
"I don't think I have ever heard of that one," said the other cowboy. "What is it?"
"Well, it's where you get your wife down on all fours and you mount her from behind. Then you reach around and cup each one of her breasts in your hands and whisper in her ear, "Boy, these feel just like your sister's."

Dunno how many of you are even aware of the Mardi Gras Indians, but for the few of you who are: Tuti Montana is dead. He had a heart attack while he was speaking at a NOLA City Council meeting to discuss the St. Joseph's night confrontation between Indians and police. He was 82.

Wow. The Chief of Chiefs, former Big Chief of the Yellow Pocahontas tribe, gone. 52 years of masking. I'd chant for you if I knew the words, Great Chief.

Kick Ass, Brothah

Gotta echo seantaclaus's echoing of dustyskinandall: Go Canada!

"Canada will become the third country in the world to officially sanction same-sex marriage. In a 158 to 133 vote, the House of Commons adopted Bill C-38 -- the controversial legislation legalizing same-sex marriage from coast to coast -- on its third and final reading Tuesday night. The bill will become official once it receives Senate approval, which is expected within days.

"(This) is about the Charter of Rights," Prime Minister Paul Martin said earlier Tuesday. "We are a nation of minorities. And in a nation of minorities, it is important that you don't cherry-pick rights. A right is a right and that is what this vote tonight is all about."

Rock the fuck on, PM. Hell, I dropped him an e-mail; such enlightened attitudes and remarks are excellent. i can only hope some of this rubs off on our government some day...but it would have to show up in all the blood and muck they're already covered in.
