A teammate and I were talking after a game this weekend about the new Rambo movie he saw.
His description of the movie, to put it plainly, was a limb flinging gore-fest. Not quite what I was hoping for.
Gone, I’m afraid, are the golden days of the great American action movie. You know the ones,
where there are more explosions than dialogue and as many bullets being fired than cheesy one-liners from the out-gunned, out-numbered but eerily crafty ex-cop of a protagonist.
Even as I write this post, I’m treating myself to a healthy portion of early 90’s gun porn called “Demolition Man”. Granted, Sly Stallone isn’t the best, he is one of the originals.
Hell, we Californians love action heroes so much, we voted one in as governor. I know, it’s ridiculous but not as ridiculous as voting in an ex- pro wresler…ahem…you all know who you are. Jack asses.
Anywho, if you’re ever home sick, have nothing else better to do, slide on into that time machine and have a rad time watching some good ol’ fashioned shoot ‘em ups…80’s and 90’s style.
Anime Law of the Day
Anime Law #33: Law of Topological Aerodynamics, First Law of Anime Aero-Dynamics
ANY shape, no matter how convoluted or odd-looking, is automatically aerodynamic.
The Vad Bag
Holdup-Note Blues: A man was arrested near Marysville, CA for driving a car that had been spotted at a bank robbery. On the center console of the car, officers found a yellow "sticky" note with the words: "Robbery 100s and 50s only." Said an officer, "We call that a clue."
Really…you call that a clue. Excellent police work…jack ass.
There was something about this piece that I just absolutely love.
It’s a great piece of work from another talented DA artist.
