Oh you cocksucker that is my favorite motion picture ever! The drive through Paris!

You know, this video has remained in my head since I saw it.

I’m constantly thinking of alternative routes that would increase the number of freeways without doubling back.

ballsofsteelandfury

This is my current route:

Westchester Parkway to
Lincoln Blvd. (1, PCH) to
E105 to
S405 to
S110 to
E47 to
N103 to
W. Willow St. to
N710 to
E91 to
N Lakewood Blvd. (19) to
E105 to
N605 to
N5 to
N 710 to
W60 to
N101 to
N110 to
Arroyo Parkway to
California Blvd to
Pasadena Ave. to
W134 to
N2 to
W210 to

S101 to
Topanga Canyon Blvd (27) to
S1 (PCH) to
W10 to
S405 to
W90 to
Culver Blvd to
Pershing Dr. to
Westchester Parkway.

Any ideas on how to cram more in? I can’t get the 170 in…

Of course. But only if they bawl their little eyes out.

Dave Roberts had no reason to take out Rich Hill.

As stated earlier, he should be fired now. His bullpen decisions have lost his team 3 games in this series. (Or Madson, who now sucks)

Guess the Jags really are feeling like London is their home town, what with walking the tab at that titty bar and figuring they’d get away with it. Bet they’re shitty tippers too.

yeah right

Minor digression but the fact that my oldest 13 year old granddaughter listens to Queen is positive.

Brian May is a guitar god.

You just have to listen to the right era.

Pre-punk.

35 years on, I re-discovered this in an old box; tri-fold poster that I got when I bought the album (Jazz, I think), had it framed, and it now hangs in the living room. (Sorry, has nothing to do with Brian May’s musical chops).

yeah right

I saw them live on the Jazz tour and they played “Fat bottom girls” with 50 girls in bikinis and santa hats, it was close to Christmas you see, and they rode their bicycles in a circle on stage.

Did the local radio station have a contest where you could win backstage passes to meet the band and sniff the bicycle seats? That would have been fun.

yeah right

Cynthia Foxx sold her seat for a fortune!

The Addams Family was a tight show. I love it.

HAI! I is an adult! 2 nights of boozy engagements and I have been home by 11 each night! I found the key is smoke a joint, drink 2 botles of wine in 3 hours then a 20 minute walk home and the death feeling isn’t there ala manana!

yeah right

That’s a solid mission statement.

Local Yinzer news (you all know I use that term as both one of affection to my hometown, and the general stereotype we’ve rightfully cultured) says the motherfucker behind this massacre is/was a loner, didn’t talk to neighbors, and thought Trump was too left-wing.

I appreciate the humor. It’s why I’ve been watching Always Sunny, South Park, and college football, as well as listening to old clips of Mr. Obvious. They never stop making me laugh, even in scenarios like this. My best friend estimates he lives “about a mile” from where this happened. He and his wife said they don’t exactly “know anybody directly,” but said, “it could have been one of the people you see walking the dog.”

Wifey is working a 24-hour shift, maybe three miles from where this happened. She texted me that the hospital was on lockdown, which, isn’t unusual. It was then I noticed the fuckload of texts, asking me if I was okay… totally confused. Lil’er WCS has had the shits, and some bad diaper rash. I was focusing on that, when I put the TV on, and saw what was happening.

Mr. Ayo
Mr. Ayo

Yeah, it’s gotta be pretty fucking scary when it’s that close. Stay strong for lil’er and Mrs. WCS.

Went down to the local at which I have been a regular for over 15 years to have a glass of wine to celebrate Sox victory. Apparently some other regular pointed me out to some forty-something year old newcomer, who approached me and the following exchange ensued (keep in mind I’ve already been alcoholically lubricating myself for several hours and am usually a little more verbally aggressive when such conditions occur):
HIm: “I’m told you were in the Navy.”
Me: “Yep.”
Him: ” I was in the Navy, flew F-14s and F-18s. What did you do?”
Me: “I was enlisted swine.”
Him: “Aww man, don’t say it like that. They said you’re a Democrat too. Really?”
Me: “Yep. I prefer to belong to the party that prioritizes the well-being of people over corporate profits. This is not the philosophy of that stupid orange motherfucker in the White House.”
Him: “What? Dude, he’s doing a good job!”
Me: “If you are a college graduate and can listen to that guy talk for more than two minutes without concluding that he’s a complete idiot, then your education was a complete farce and you were completely ripped off and should ask for a refund.”
Him: “Not everyone agrees with your opinion.”
Me: “The number of ex-Navy officers I know that think that Trump is a smart cookie has led me to conclude that I was taking orders from complete morons during my time on board. I don’t know how our ships even found port, and am thankful that I survived it.”
Down glass, “good night,” and out the door.

yeah right

It was time to leave.

Viva La Tabula Raza

Absolutely. Perfectly timed, too, as it was last call.

Malkin scores his second goal in 59 second. 4-0 Ice Steelers. This game may end up being 9-0

Despite it only being 2-0, the Ice Steelers are doing their best Harlem Globetrotters impersonation while the Canucks look like the Generals

Question for you WWE fans: Do you even care about Lesnar even being in the WWE, let alone a champ? Hearing that it’s him vs Strowman for the title at Death to Media is such a stupid decision by the WWE.

Horns, Ags, and Navy lost. Red Sox, I’ll call that a split and head on down to the local for a coupla to celebrate. See youse guys in an hour or two, or in the morning….

Horatio Cornblower

Bellinger is just pure ass. I’ve never seen a ballplayer as overwhelmed as he is. Desperately hoping for a walk, not swinging at all until he has two strikes on him and then taking weak hacks at fastballs over the middle of the plate because he just wants to foul them off.

Senor Weaselo

Well now the Dodgers’ chances lie on big-game postseason ace Clayton Kershawwww goddammit, fuck it all, somehow the most tolerable sports team to win a championship this year is going to be the Golden State Warriors.

theeWeeBabySeamus

Wait, just wait…. I thought it was the Lakers’ year.
THAT WHAT MAH TEEVEE BOX KEEPS TELLING ME!!!!!!!!

Wakezilla

Have they even won a game yet?

Horatio Cornblower

2-3.

I only know that because I was running out of things to read on the toilet earlier today. The NY Times sports section leaves a lot to be desired.

WE ARE A NETS HOUSE!

Horatio Cornblower

Thank Xenu for the Eagles.

And I say that as someone who grew up rooting for the Cowboys.

Carey Price is 25 wins away from being the Ice Alouettes’ all-time wins leader. I wonder if some Frenchie will try to break his knee caps to prevent that from happening

For their only night game of the year the Reedley Tigers travelled to Merced to play last year’s almost won champion with the reigning offensive player of the year.

Tall task indeed.

44-28 Reedley Fucking Tigers.

Eight and Oh!

Hell yes. Go nephew go!
