Thursday Random thoughts 10/21/10

Stuff I have been thinking about:

-So far so good with the MLB playoffs. The two teams I am pulling for The Texas Rangers and the San Francisco Giants are leading in their League Championship series. Now don't get the idea that I am a huge fan of either of these teams, I am just kind of pulling against who they are playing, The Yankees and Phillies. GO RANGERS - GO GIANTS!

-By the way, Did anyone else find it a tad bit ironic the other day when Alex Rodriguez (A-Rod) was at bat and behind him was an advertisement from MLB promoting "Drug Free-Play Healthy" ?

-Am I the only one who is bothered that the movie Jackass 3D just set a record for the largest October movie opening weekend in the history of movies? Our society is in big trouble.

-Speaking of movies. I can't wait for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows to open on November 19th. I am seriously considering taking a half day to catch and early showing.

-Since we are talking about Harry Potter I was pleased to read this article the other day saying that my Alma-Mater Lenoir-Rhyne University is hosting the first annual Harry Potterfest next weekend. It includes bands, an author, and even a Quidditch match. How come they didn't do anything cool like this when I was there? All we got was "Pauly Shore on Campus"

-I really need a haircut.

-Somebody asked me the other day if I was a "Daddy Blogger" Now I am not entirely sure what a Daddy Blogger is and even though I am a Daddy and a Blogger I kind of doubt I fall under this particular category.

-I read the other day that they are making a Hangover 2. I sure hope this one is decently funny
and in some way doesn't make a mockery of the original which is a classic. It appears that Mel Gibson will be making a cameo. Oh boy this could get good.

-33 years ago yesterday October 20th 3 members of Lynyrd Skynyrd were killed in a plain crash in Mississippi. Southern rock's version of "The day the music died."

-On Monday I turn the BIG 39. Not really dreading this one but for some reason I am next years birthday. Man I'm getting old.

-One thing that I have been doing recently is downloading some music. Yes I know that I am late to the party on this one, but I have been worried that it was illegal and I could get sued by Ace of Base or somebody for downloading their music and I have no money for lawsuits. So I have gone to Limewire and downloaded 30 songs that I didn't already have and burned them to a CD. I'm not sharing it with anybody so they can't sue me. right?

Until next time...

Jackass is extremely funny and painful. I think they are great! Anybody that will try the things these guys do... gets major props from me.

Why are you dreading 40? You are only as old as you feel. I feel like I am still in my 20's and will continue to feel that way. Get in MAJOR shape Doc and you will feel and look younger! I know I harp on this a lot to you...sorry!

All those guys from Lynyrd Skynyrd resemble the people that raised me!

A guy who is worried about society taking a downturn is considering taking a half day off to catch an early screening of a Harry Potter movie?

Ha. That's classic!!

Cheers Doc!!

Doc said...

HAHA you are correct Matt-Man... and yes I did put in for that half day off this morning!

I am picking the kids up from school early on 11/19 to go see HP7, so I can totally relate to that.

And now, I'm trying to justify a trip to Hickory next week. I want to go to Harry Potterfest!

My advice to the Rangers is to NOT LOSE game 6. I wouldn't trust them in a game 7 at all. Even at home.

Vinny "Bond" Marini said...

two words...GO YANKEES

have no real feeling for the NLCS, other than my brother being a big Giants fan

Sad day 33 years ago indeed

39? You are still a pup dude..and you are viral on the internet, that automatically takes 5 years off your age - it is a law

1) ehh!
2) ehh!
3) I loved the sickness of the humor that is Jackass in 1, and 2, and I look forward to the sickness of humor in 3D when I get my ass to the theater.
4) Definitely want to see it, and I know I will.
5) It's a new world and your old enough to be slightly out of it.
6) Me too. Thinking of doing the buzz cut.
7) You don't, they don't know WTF their talking about.
8) ehh!
9) It opened our just never know!
10) Phhh....39? Grow up dude!
11) Your a late!

It sounds like I need to cut back on my drinking and go to more movies.
