The Guys of March

Friday, March 30th, 2012

If you’ve slogged along with this blog for long enough, you know that every year I make a big deal out of celebrating my two husbands’ shared birthday on March 31. But this year is a little different, as BW is turning 40!  So I am gonna devote tomorrow’s blog entirely to him, but of […]

Legacy of Badassery

Wednesday, February 29th, 2012

You know I have every one of JC’s groundbreaking American Recordings series, in which he performed songs of his, songs of others, songs old and new, and single-handedly proved that he owned all musical genres.  Everything he uttered in his voice became his unequivocally and forever. Proof:  Rusty Cage, one of my favorite songs of […]

On with the body count

Johnny Cash’s 80th birthday week continues! Cash doesn’t want to hear about how hard some bitch-ass rappers are because they used to deal E in the Chick Fil-A parking lot back in Winston-Salem and did 16 months in juvie.  Cash got stripes. Badass!

Enter the Badass

Sunday, February 26th, 2012

Today would have been Johnny Cash’s 80th birthday, and to honor the original gangster of all musical genres, we are gonna sit right here and watch videos of Johnny owning everyone and everything all week long.  Nothing can stand before the power of Cash. “And I showed the clouds how to cover up a clear […]

Que ridiculo!

Wednesday, April 6th, 2011

Oh this is just getting insane now. I have outlined for you all of the many reasons why Ewan McGregor is my Parallel Universe Husband.  Why I could swap him for BW and Ewan’s wife and I would barely notice a difference.   I don’t need any more data to back up this claim but […]

TV Casualty: Winter IS Coming

Thursday, March 17th, 2011

The best (?) for last?  If not the best, then the most-anticipated, most scrutinized, most likely to either be mind-boggling or fail spectacularly. Beginning April 17 on HBO, an adaptation of A Game of Thrones, first novel in the continuing A Song of Ice & Fire fantasy book series.  (Official HBO site.) If you are […]

Toast of the Town

Monday, May 10th, 2010

Is it a rule or cosmic destiny that black-haired boys named Sid must be awesome?  Dunno. Happy birthday to the original.  The Sid Prime.  We will always love you, and miss you.  Wish you’d been around to toss rocks at Malcom’s funeral cortege. Stay angry out there.

It was Russell’s birthday on Wed., so for today’s Drive-By, I’m dishing out the presents! First, there’s always room for a little of this: And second, here’s a wallpaper.  Now go forth and play some rugby, get boozed up, and kick ass!

The Feast of St. Bela

Tuesday, October 20th, 2009

I know…posting YouTube videos for content is lazy, lazy, lazy.  But I’m busy.  But I can’t let Bela’s birthday go unmentioned.  Besides, if I haven’t convinced you over the years to worship St. Bela, I never will.  (HEATHEN!!!) So here is Bauhaus.  Worship them, too.  This is amazing.  How did I not know about this […]

Jesus Saves. Crosby gets the rebound and SCORRRREEEES!

I could be in Halifax right now for the Crosbmas Day parade…but NOOOoooooooooo….I am headed out to help Agent Asian and her Caucasian do emergency painting at their new abode.  Then tomorrow I’m due at a bridal shower for said […]

Mitch. Umm.

Thursday, August 6th, 2009

Our everlasting birthday wishes go out once again to the man, the myth, the Mitch. You know, I found a Mitchum flick on Netflix the ohter day that I actually hadn’t seen.  It’s always nice when those turn up.  It was a 1947 western called Pursued, newly restored for DVD because of a grant from […]

My my my.  What a trifecta of Hot greets us this day!  Astounding. First of all…State of Play.  It opens today.  Rusty.  Long hair.  Scruffy.  Did you see the hair?!   My tix have already been Fandango’ed. The only way I’d forgive you for not going to see SoP is because you chose to stay […]

And just in time, things on the Russell Front are picking up. Next weekend, State of Play will hit theaters! *bounce bounce* Are you going? You’d better […]

I deserve 40 lashes with a wire hanger!

Tuesday, March 24th, 2009

I forgot that yesterday was Ms. Crawford’s birthday!  Then I turned on TCM and they were having a Crawford-a-thon.  I finally got to see Autumn Leaves, a movie I’d read a lot about but is not available on DVD. Anyway, I will scrub some floors for penance.  And I’ll offer this for your viewing pleasure. […]

This is the Day the Lord has made,

Thursday, January 8th, 2009

Let us Rejoice and be glad in Him! Someone who is a better servant of the Lord Our Gawd than I made this little piece for His birthday last year.  It’s pretty damn cool. Listen to Our Saviour tell His miraculous story in His own words, heed ye the Words of the Lord, bask ye […]

Today is Robert Mitchum’s birthday!  Ahhhhh…..Bobby the Mitch…always and forever putting the “MMMmmmmmmmMMMmmMmmmm” in “Mmmmmitchum.” I was nosing around at YouTube hoping to find some excerpts from Bobby’s films to try and share his greatness with you.  I found a couple, but then I found the piece below.  Somebody made a music video with some […]

The birthday bastard

Sunday, August 3rd, 2008

Y’all didn’t think I’d miss Hetfield’s birthday, did ya? I’ll never understand why I bother, other than that hope and love are both harder to kill than cockroaches.

It’s Boromir, bitch.

Thursday, April 17th, 2008

I promise, this is the LAST celebrity birthday for the month of April! But the last is the best.. SeanBaby! While you celebrate, be sure to watch this classic over again, and tell ‘em BOROMIR SENT YA! (continued after the break)
