New Kung Fu

News to me:

In the ’70s, martial arts legend Bruce Lee pitched a series to Warner Bros. called The Warrior — centered on a Chinese martial artist traveling across America’s Old West. Ultimately, Warner Bros. rejected Lee’s pitch because it didn’t think audiences would tune into a Chinese-led television show. However, one year later, Warner Bros. launched Kung Fu, casting a white male lead (David Carradine) with no kung fu experience in a story that resembled Lee’s initial pitch.

The reboot is hoped to honor Lee’s legacy.

I’m Fatman

Mel Gibson seems to have aged perfectly into this role. As an afficionado of Bad Santa and Futurama’s evil Santa Bot, I’m there.

Gacked On Anger

I’m stressed on tick
I’m stressed on tick
I’m stressed on tick
‘Cause I’m gacked on anger

Separated by a common language, Australian style.
Enjoy!

Altamont Turns 50

The infamous Altamont Speedway free concert happened fifty years ago last Friday.  Not many humorous moments on that harrowing day, but a priceless one occurs above at about 3:47 as a Hell’s Angel sizes up Jagger.
