This Does Not Apply To Everyone I Know

Just so you all are aware…


S&W Revolvers

In stock again at J&G Sales.  I’ve shot some a friend got a while back, they’re a screaming deal for the money.


Some Movies Have a Single Redeeming Scene

Luigi Vampa (smuggler and thief): “We watch you and Jacopo fight to the death. If Jacopo wins we welcome him back to the crew. If you win I have given Jacopo the chance to live, even if he did not take advantage of it, and you can take his place on the boat.”

Edmond Dantes: “What if I win and I don’t want to be a smuggler?”

Luigi Vampa:  Then we slit your throat and we’re a bit shorthanded.”

Edmond Dantes: *claps hands*  ” I find smuggling is the life for me and would be delighted to kill your friend the maggot.”

Luigi Vampa: “Oh, uh, by the way, Jacopo…is the best knife fighter I have ever seen.”

Edmond Dantes: ” Perhaps you should get out more.”

I’m not a huge Jim Caveziel fan but he does a good job with a lousy adaptation of a mediocre novel and makes it kinda-sorta watchable.


What I’m Reading Part ?

Just in case you’re interested *g*.

Robert E. Howard’s Conan stories, in the order they were published and without all the filler/edits/etc. I haven’t read them in years, I’d forgotten how much I enjoyed them.


Dear Bono: Piss Off

Convinced you are still relevant, you seem to be. I’m afraid you’re wrong.

And stop spouting unresearched canards. Someone might accidently listen to something you say and believe it.*

* Yes, he performs much humanitarian work and that is a good thing. Still…

P.S. – I didn’t like you when you were new and popular either.


Kedzie vs. Nunes

This one also confuses me a little.

Kedzie has a much longer record (though it shows she’s vulnerable to submissions – Shayna Baszler and Tonya Evinger both caught her during Strikeforce bouts and she’s been submitted other times). She’s got a great deal of experience, however.

Nunes has a much shorter record, with no big names in it and this will be her first big-time fight since her debut in Pride.

Might be worth watching.
