I am NOT cool with this…

As a Weather Channel junkie, this is unacceptable.

Weather Channel To Air Movies For First Time

Associated Press, Oct 20 2009, 3:25 PM ET

NEW YORK (AP) — The Weather Channel plans to show movies for the first time in its 27-year history.

First up? “The Perfect Storm.”

The network has slipped longer programming into its constantly rotating forecasts in recent years. But over a four-week period starting the night before Halloween, the cable network will try Friday night movies.

Its managers figured the George Clooney movie about a horrific storm off the New England coast would be a good first choice – particularly since it’s airing on the 18th anniversary of the actual event.

NOOO! NOT STORM STORIES AGAIN!!!
NOOO! NOT STORM STORIES AGAIN!!!

Uhhhhhhh, no. If I don’t get my weather on the 8’s. I’m calling the cable company. This is very uncool. Heck, they’re even going to show “Misery” with Kathy Bates…since snow plays a role in the story. That’s no different that showing “Cast Away” because the plane goes down in a storm.  But then again, what is the difference between this, and ESPN Classic showing “Caddyshack”…not much.

I need my fix of Jim Cantore standing on a beach fighting 190 mile an hour winds as Hurricane Emelianodiegocastaneda rolls in… I blame NBC for this, since this would never have happened before they bought the network. What’s next? Leno doing “Headlines” with a weather theme? Or the Travel Channel showing “Ocean’s Eleven” because it revolves arond Las Vegas? Actually…don’t have a problem with that one.

If the Weather Channel shows movies…the terrorists win.

David Carradine…’nuff said.

Shocked…shocked I am after logging into my blog today. Why am I shocked? Quite frankly…I’m stunned that anyone actually READS this steamer of a blog. I’m also stunned after looking at the stats that 3 people found it by Googling my name. Who would Google me? (I’m looking at you, Perez…stop calling me.)

But, I happily digress.

David Carradine is dead. Not in the “Kill Bill” manner that I honestly expected him to go out in. But somehow he found a way to go out in an even more outrageous manner.

Hands…and junk…joined by rope.

Not going to get into specifics…just in case my 12 year old daughter was one of the ones Googling my name (in that case…the weird My Little Pony/Transformers mashup is the next post down). But, let’s just say in Thailand…where Bill ultimately “met the Bride”…it may (or may not) be referred to as “natural causes”.

But, what about David’s film legacy? Wow…where do you start? In my opinion, it all starts and ends with one…shining monument to cinematic glory…

DEATH RACE 2000.

I first saw this movie sitting on a video store shelf in 1982, and must have worn out the tape with repeated rentals. It also aired during the time we were pirating HBO in the early 80’s. For those who don’t know…click here for the Wikipedia, I simply don’t have the time and am stealing a wireless connection. Media…should be free.

This scene may sum it all up. David Carradine (as Frankenstein), in a small fit of road rage.

The added bonus, is that at the end of the clip, we enjoy about 5 seconds of the single greatest radio personality to EVER grace the mic…The Real Don Steele.  With him…and also appearances by “Gopher” from The Love Boat and a young Sylvester Stallone…this movie makes my “Lance Ballance VHS-Tory” collection. Just awesome…

……oh, and don’t tie yourself up, kids. Dying is bad.

Another test of the Internet Broadcasting System…

Observe, gentle reader…

We're cute!
We're cute!

These are ducks…not just any ducks, BABY ducks. Yellow and fuzzy, adorable if you will…

Notice the name of the .jpg of the duckies: erintopless.jpg.

You will also notice a tag in this blog that says: “Erin Andrews Topless”.  There are no such photos here.  But, by use of said tag, and the name of the file…

PAGEVIEWS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Before the weekend, the total of how many hits this gets, especially from Miss Andrews cute and fuzzy lawyers.

Y’all are perverts…

Vijay Singh is better than you…

During the annual 16th hole water-hazard-ball-skip-and-not-get-wet competition yesterday at Augusta. Vijay Singh skipped a ball off of the water hazard, and yes…in the hole.  Someone had a camera…

That’s one of those monents when even Tiger has to cock his head slightly left and nod, “Dayum!”

But still not quite to the level of this classic Masters Moment:

“IT’S IN DA HOLE!!!”
