And you know what that means,

Welcome again to another Saturday night, where we celebrate JJ Watt getting what DeShaun Watson has so far been denied.

Of course, we are still just barely into the offseason,

so there is plenty of time for other events to occur before the new league year starts on March 17th. There’s at least four more Russell Wilson rumours for Florio to float!

Now, I realize the big news of the day was the Democrats caving at the first sign of Republican pushback when it came to calling witnesses. I understand how angry that must make some people, but isn’t it refreshing to find this out after less than a month versus waiting almost a year for the united front? I mean, the average age of a Democratic senator is 85 years old, so time isn’t on anyone’s side at present.

With that reality under our belts, it’s time to hit the bourble!

Hey guys, I’m sorry to kill everyone’s buzz or add to your hangover (depending on when you see this), but I just saw Mike Tunison’s twitter feed and he posted a pretty worrying tweet. I don’t know if anyone is in touch with him, but if you are please check on him.

scotchnaut

Yeah, that’s not good.

This Mike Tunison?
Yeah, sorry, but it’s hard to feel sorry for someone screaming about justice and how he got railroaded by #MeToo … yet didn’t do anything (but bitch and whine on Twitter and Medium) to actually clear his name? Same one who decided to scream bias, because Al Franken “got off easy” (outside of his tarnished name and destroyed political career) … y’know, despite the fact that unlike him, Al Franken actually fought the slander with facts on his side?

Or it’s someone else?

scotchnaut

From the outside looking in, it seems like he’s losing a battle to depression-that’s my concern.

bk109

It may be the immigrant mentality in me, but sometimes I really find it hard to empathize with someone who only lashes out at the world, but doesn’t actually do shit to actually help himself (and that’s from someone who was a couple of milimeters of trigger pull away from “checking out”), but that said – I don’t want that bloke to do something stupid to himself or others, but looking back at his twitter posts… it doesn’t look good (and frankly – given the tone he’s using, I legitimately think that people are ignoring for more than the allegation levied against him)
Edit: For context, a distilled version of (at least some of the emmigres’ mentality): “If you don’t care to fight for everything you get in life, why should I care about you complaining about being beaten by life” (I know I can clear that up a bit, but I’m on 5 hours’ total sleep the past 4 days, so I’m not gonna)

BUT, during da grind, I listened to all Led Zeppelin albums. A ranking of my favorites, from “Pretty Awesome” to “WHY LISTEN TO ANYTHING ELSE WOOOOO1!1!”:

-Coda

-Presence (though “Hots on for Nowhere” is dynamite and “Nobody’s Fault but Mine” 🔥🔥🔥)

-II (I said “favorite”, K?)

-In Through the Out Door (fact: there were like five Request Lines in a row that had “Fool in the Rain”)

-III (1st LZ album I heard)

-I (🖤 “How Many More Times”)

-IV (50% because of “When the Leevee Breaks” OMG that song kills me)

-Physical Grafitti. Just killer after killer. That first disc… 🔁🔁🔁🔁🔁

II is at minimum an emotional favorite. Lots of hours listening to that one

SonOfSpam

These are good rankings.

Viva La Tabula Raza

LZ II was the first rock and roll album I ever bought. I was ten, it was 1969. I still have it. It looks like someone cut pizza on it. I don’t have any issues with Don T’s rankings.

ThurberHerder

“When the Levee Breaks” has such an intrinsic push and pull to it, its gotta move ya

Senor Weaselo

Senorita Weaselo (I helped a little bit much of it was me staying out of the way and watching Nausicaä) made a bomb-ass raspberry pie. And it is tart. And somewhere between jelly and melted candy in thickness.

Also she doesn’t have an oven in the basement. It was via toaster oven.

I seen it! Seriously that looked damn good

yeah right

Bomb ass tart. Give that girl the dap that she deserves.

I spent the whole day, from 9 AM to just now, doing administrative work. Which, for me, is much, much harder than actual work. Pro Tip: have a bit of freekin’ business sense before opening your own shop.

On a related note Netfilx got me to watch ‘Space Sweepers’ last night and to all of you I say: Save yourselves. Do not watch it. It is terrible, even by Netflix-Buying-Korean-Movies standards.

“Oh, yeah, I had a gig with Space Sweepers. You’d think they wouldn’t care about you blazing up before pushing a broom around all day, but you’d be wrong.” – Todd Marinovich

That movie is worse than Todd’s career, but better than Marv’s parenting skills.

The only thing worse than Andy’s parenting skills are Britt’s driving skills.

Car people should all check out Ian Roussell/Full Custom Garage on various platforms. Dude is a really talented fabricator, and very much worth checking out. Very mellow to watch given the shit that is going on out there.

My wife gave me my Valentine’s Day present tonight. It’s a pair of boxer shorts with her face all over them. I’ve been advised that I can no longer claim I don’t get enough head.

Viva La Tabula Raza

I guess you can get her a pair of panties at the next appropriate moment with your face all over them and advise her that your giving her more than enough face.

Sure, but then she’ll get pissed off when you fart on her face!

And let’s not even discuss the skidmarks.

So honest question–what are the current LA County COVID restrictions? Because the website is fucking useless and i want to know how righteously angry to be about the roof deck party happening right now.

ballsofsteelandfury

The curfew has been lifted. Gatherings of people from more than 2 households are banned.

ballsofsteelandfury

If it’s an apartment building and the people in the roof are all from the same building, they may be technically considered the same household.

Horatio Cornblower

I say let the rocket launcher decide who’s in the right here.

Brick Meathook

When was the curfew lifted? Because very suddenly on Friday and today the traffic on L.A. freeways (and I’ve been out shooting) went from nothing to pre-pandemic heavy.

ballsofsteelandfury

When they allowed outdoor dining again.

I think it was last week.

Mr. Ayo

What is ©TOOLCO ?

Brick Meathook

Google “Howard Hughes” and “TOOLCO”

ballsofsteelandfury

I thought it was the name of his cock.

Brick Meathook

Howard Hughes’ cock? He called it the “Hercules.”

Read about Howard Hughes. Nobody had a corporate division devoted to getting him laid like Hughes did, all while he’s a national aviation hero, the model for Bruce Wayne and Iron man, building the biggest airplane ever, running (and ruining) TWA, producing movies and then owning a studio, all while going insane and having money poured onto him every day. That just scratched the surface.

ballsofsteelandfury

Yeah, he’s fascinating.

Actually, I was referring to your cock, but you probably have a different name for it.

Brick Meathook

I call it “The Titan”

Ha ha I’m kidding I don’t name my dick or my car.

Viva La Tabula Raza

My favourite Howard Hughes stories are the ones told by James Ellroy in his Underworld USA trilogy.

Brick Meathook

I read L.A Confidential, and I love the movie (even though Walt Disney and Howard Hughes and all their perversity was left out) but Ellroy still writes fiction.

The real Hughes story is crazier than fiction and can never be made into a single movie because there is so much going on simultaneously.

Here are two of the best books on Hughes:

comment image

Brick Meathook

Also, my aunt was a top executive secretary at Hughes Aircraft and she met all the big shots there. She would describe Hughes as wandering the factory alone in a beat up hat and worn shirt while high level meetings with U.S. Military and DOD officials were being held right there and he wasn’t allowed to attend. He received all the massive profits from these projects because he was the sole stockholder.

These are from back when companies gave out nice things:

comment image

Viva La Tabula Raza

Read both of those. I know Ellroy’s stuff is fiction, and think LA Confidential is his best work both written and the movie adaptation, but the tawdry stuff about Hughes and J Edgar Hoover (and Sonny Liston and many others) in the Underworld USA trilogy is fucking hysterical.

ballsofsteelandfury

I worked at Hughes Aircraft during college on missile systems. Had DOJ security clearance too.

I wonder what life would have been like if the recession had not hit when I graduated and they had to lay off 2000 employees.

Viva La Tabula Raza

Which recession are you talking about? There have been many, at least in my 6 decades on the planet…

ballsofsteelandfury

Right? 1992

Mr. Ayo

Got it.

ballsofsteelandfury

Is this approach from the west or east?

Brick Meathook

Runway 24R, by the In&Out

ballsofsteelandfury

Cool. I thought there was a similar point on Pershing where you could see the lights like that.

Brick Meathook

The western approach lights are all on the “ghost neighborhood” land that is restricted to El Segundo Blue Butterflies where they can more easily get sucked into jet engines.

ballsofsteelandfury

It really is a trip to see the “streets”.

No, that In&Out is on Camrose.

Horatio Cornblower

I read a Rolling Stone article about a guy who was almost the lead singer for Van Halen, (Mitch Malloy, and the story seems to be behind a paywall now), and in there’s a brief mention that Van Halen was considering Joss Stone as the singer and goddamn, that would have been something.

Mr. Ayo

Every nut sack would have been emptied and our species would have perished.

So I think the right decision was made.

Horatio Cornblower

I donate regularly to the Connecticut Humane Society and I swear I would murder a carload of puppies if it got Jack Edwards off the air.

ballsofsteelandfury

Ok, since we are on that subject…

The original Star Trek series was a 60’s hippie-inspired/fueled fantasy about a utopian universe where the principles this country supposedly aspires to were the goal of every “civilization” and those planets that didn’t subscribe to that theory were the enemy.

It basically mirrors US Foreign Policy of the time. I have watched some of the shows, but not all and it’s basically me looking to see which alien Kirk tries to bang.

Kirk was secretly Mexican, btw.

The Next Generation was far superior because it put the brakes on the philosophical bullshit and put a little realism and humour in it.

I did not watch the other versions of the saga because they did away with the humour of Next Generation and I don’t gravitate towards shows that try to lecture me without making me laugh.

Mr. Ayo

I was always confused because if an alien species landed here and asked for our leader that wouldn’t be a clear cut answer.

Viva La Tabula Raza

I guess it would depend on which part of the country they landed, red or blue.

Mr. Ayo

I mean, if they land in China, Turkey, DRC, et chetera, the answer is always different right? But in Star Trek lore every alien species has one leader.

ArmedandHammered

I thought Deep Space Nine was the best series.

Ooh, I did watch some of that! And I did like it. My favourite character was the Ferengi (sp?)

He may’ve been a badass in layer cake (and plenty of others), but he was a shit pilot in Die Hard – You, NEVER trust only one system when in IFR, especially when the radio altimeter is starting to scream at you, that you’re doing something particularly stupid

Viva La Tabula Raza

I blame the screenwriter, not the actor.

Same, lol, I only pointed that out, because I’m doing a Die Hard marathon while everyone’s sleeping/in front of a computer here and he just crashed while I was skimming through the convo I missed during the night XD
