Because he’s a fucking lunatic.
I still want to know what good all of his guns are going to do against tanks, A-10s, and F/A-18s. He only has two hands. If the government wants badly enough to coerce him or kill him, why does he think they are going to let a punk with a 5.56 or 7.62 assault rifle stop them? Or even 100 punks? Or 1000? Do these assholes not remember how it went for the Confederacy when they tried this shit? Do they really want to repeat that over assault weapons and concealed carry permits?
Brand new Begin Again trailer.
The description and the trailers don’t do it justice. I was skeptical, as I usually am of movies my wife actively wants to see, but this one was great! Keira is awesome, and Mark Ruffalo is like half a step from becoming a true blue BFD. Probably one of the most underrated actors in Hollywood.
Go see it. Matinee if you must, but you won’t regret it.
Ok, the alien dude is more than a little creepy. But the 3D effect the gif creates is pretty cool…
A 400-pound asthmatic Staten Island dad died Thursday after a cop put him in a chokehold and other officers appeared to slam his head against the sidewalk, video of the incident shows.
“I can’t breathe! I can’t breathe!” Eric Garner, 43, repeatedly screamed after at least five NYPD officers took him down in front of a Tompkinsville beauty supply store when he balked at being handcuffed.
Within moments Garner, a married father of six children with two grandchildren, stopped struggling and appeared to be unconscious as police called paramedics to the scene. An angry crowd gathered, some recording with smartphones.
“When I kissed my husband this morning, I never thought it would be for the last time,” Garner’s wife, Esaw, told the Daily News.
She got no details from police until after she had gone to the hospital to identify his body, she said.
“I saw him with his eyes wide open and I said, ‘Babe, don’t leave me, I need you.’ But he was already gone,” she said.
and people wonder why black people don’t trust or have any love for cops. they murdered this man. this black man. and for what? fucking cigarettes. yea, WE’RE the fucking problem.
“A guy is dead in our custody. That is always a potential problem,” the source said.
There is nothing ‘potential’ about it. It is a problem.
We have to go back.
note: why was this stuck in my drafts for weeks?!
Wingardium Leviosa, amirite?
(For all my Muggle followers, the beauty in the towel there, is Madam Professor Minerva McGonagall from the Harry Potter movies. I did a triple take.)
Hey! I saw that you said you loved the Foo Fighters in your post about Weird Al (He went to my university! Woooo!!!) and I just wanted to ask what your favorite album/songs were by them? Also have you ever gotten the chance to see them live, they're absolutely amazing!
Difficult question. Favorites are always a fluid thing.
Some weeks I’ll really want that lo-fi sound of the debut album, recorded almost entirely by Dave alone playing every instrument. When I’m feeling nostalgic for high school give me The Colour and the Shape or There Is Nothing Left to Lose. While I was in college they released the single for “Have It All” from One By One with a cover of Prince’s “Darling Nikki” as the b-side. I played that CD single so often it ended up getting too scratched to play from all the extra handling and I had to order another one from overseas as Prince had it pulled from the US market by that time…
So basically everything before In Your Honor is my favorite, at different times. Starting with In Your Honor I was out on my own and couldn’t afford to buy every new release and I didn’t pick it up until a few years later. So I don’t have the same emotional attachment to that album or Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace. There are some fine songs there, they just aren’t as tightly weaved into my life as the first few albums.
By the time Wasting Light came around I was making a decent living and was able to buy that on release day. I was so psyched when I found out Novoselic (original Nirvana bassist) played bass and accordian on one of the tracks (“I Should Have Known”). And I was not disappointed, great song.
When you think about Dave Grohl, or at least when I do, I’m filled with a little bit of awe and inspiration. Here’s someone who was the drummer for the biggest band in the world in the early 90s. And when that ended, he didn’t just sit around collecting royalties and writing books about the good old days, he stepped out from behind the drum kit, took on lead vocals, guitar, bass, songwriting, and then lead one of the biggest rock bands of the last decade. Not to mention his documentary film work, and all the collaborations over the years with everyone from Paul McCartney to Tenacious D. Like, holy fuck! Talk about super human.
I could go on, but then no one would bother reading an even longer wall of text. Including singles and albums I have 14 Foo Fighters releases. And I enjoy them all to different degrees. The first half of the discography though is definitely in “love them” territory. I haven’t seen them live (unfortunately), but from the concert videos I’ve seen, they rock just as hard live as they do in studio.
This was fun, thanks for the Ask. =)
