Bubba-Ho-Tep.  The Man with the Screaming BrainAlien InvasionBurn NoticeEvil Dead (1, 2, and 3 – AKA “Army of Darkness“).  My Name is Bruce.  And many others.

It doesn’t matter what the genre, I have liked pretty nearly every damn thing Bruce Campbell has done.  He really gained my respect when he had “Bruce” shot on his property in southern Oregon.  And they built a town there to film the movie.  He’s one of a few actors I’d find it a real pleasure to meet because he has no problem mocking himself.

And now, Briscoe County, Junior.  Somehow I missed it in the craziness of the 90’s.

I managed to pick up a copy for dirt cheap.  199o’s western-ey, sciencey, steampunk-ey… but classic Bruce Campbell.  If you like him and haven’t seen it, do so.

Problem is… teensy problem but still real…

I rely heavily on closed-captions.  The DVD set does not have closed captions.  In english, anyhow.

So I am making do by having the French subtitles turned on and translating on the fly – how is that for peculiar in the US, hmmm?  This works pretty well but it is a real bitch when something doesn’t translate well, or when the sentence structure is totally rearranged, or I have no freakin’ clue what the word evenis.  But on the other hand, there are moments when it’s actually funnier in french.  Such as when one character is referring to this chick’s ass, coming across the word “haunch” just cracks me up.  Why?  Just the word.  Say it over and over again while picturing a well-formed tush and leg and it just sounds funny.

Oh hell, if you don’t already see the humor in it, I’m never going to convince you.

At least the subtitles aren’t in German.

I don’t know many (straight) men that don’t like a good hooter, but there’s just something wrong with the folks at Time Rag-azine.  Yes, breast-feeding is a perfectly normal healthy thing to do and it’s even good for infants, too.

But 6-7 year olds?  Christ on a crutch, people.  I don’t think that’s photoshopped.  I think that kid really is latched on to that teat.  And he’s probably messed up for life.  If you’re old enough to ask for it by name you should be cut off until you’re of dating age.

Update: Saw this over at doubleplusundead, and it takes precedence over anything else you’ll read here.  It’s a two-hanky kind of thing, and it puts our soldiers where they should be – in our highest respect.

More here on US Army 1st Lt. Brian Brennan.   As far as I’m concerned all of our servicemen/servicewomen are heroes, but stories like Brian’s should be told because of his unstoppability.

It’s a mocking post, so lets be really annoying then, shall we?  The snippet of news in the graphic was fresh fairly recently although it may have been missed by most.

So I says to myself, “Self, how would you poke obnoxiously at a set of values that puts everyone in this kind of asinine situation?”

Let’s just say that if you are a woman in Saudi Arabia trying to buy a bra… this has to really suck ass.

Ok, this is terrible.  It’s funny.  It’s got a bad word in it.  Don’t read the bad word.  Laugh.  Live a little.  Make fun of life.  Life is ugly, so mock it and mock it often.

Pooh-PigI don’t know who did the graphic.  Love it though.

Stolen shamelessly from McGoo.  I am a bad person.  But then he stole it from someone else, so two wrongs cancel out and I can sleep comfortably at night.

Being able to mock frequently is as important as good daily… Thai food.

They say that this is not suggested but I thought it was obvious.  You wouldn’t want to catch swine flu.

As a public service announcement two very highly placed individuals at my office – guys I eat Thai food with – say that Bruce Campbell’s new movie “My Name is Bruce”.

As an Oregon boy, I can’t say as how I’ve seen it yet but I will this weekend, as dog is my co-pilot.  (that would be Zoe)  The plot synopsis starts out well – here’s the first paragraph.

My Name is Bruce is the heroic struggle of a small mining town (Gold Lick, Oregon) to rid itself of a vengeful monster. Guan-di (Jamie Peck), the Chinese god of war and protector of the dead, has been unleashed by cemetery desecrating teenagers to protect the graves of Chinese miners lost in a deadly cave-in of yesteryear.

I grew up in an actual small-mining town in Oregon, so I should know about towns named “Gold Lick”.  First, there is no town named “Gold Lick, Oregon” and second, why did they make the town name sound like a brothel?  Or was that the point?

Whatever… Bruce, you rock dude.  Live forever, and I hope you are enjoying doing Burn Notice as much as I am watching it.

Over at doubleplusundead, DPUD has provided a link to Tactical Bacon.  God, I am so happy I could just DIE.
