Saturday Evening Post: What Would Papa Think of TTAG?

Ernest Hemingway was about the least-contradictory human being to walk the planet. He was what we used to refer to as a “man’s man,” a hard-drinking, hard-living S.O.B. who didn’t…

For the man who’s got everything (except of course for taste) comes this innovative design from customizedshowercurtains. Apparently, since they are hand-painted, you can get any design you want. Kinda…

Saturday Evening Post: A different kind of shooting.

Photography and Firearms. We load. They load. We shoot. They shoot. We have calibers. They have focal lengths. We have sights. They have viewfinders. We have safaris. They have safaris. We have tripods and bipods. They have tripods and monopods. We have shotguns. They have shotgun mics. Are we so different than they?

I’ve never understood Hollywood. Case in point: The flick from which the clip above is drawn. Now your garden variety 6-year-old yard ape would be more likely to come up with a better title for this flick than Remo Williams: The Adventure Begins. I mean, the flippin’ pulp series upon which this movie is based was called The Destroyer, for pity’s sake. What – too macho-sounding? Too obtuse? I don’t know “Remo Williams” doesn’t exactly tell me “this guy’s gonna kick some ass” like “The Punisher” or “Matt Helm” or even my personal fave “Derek Flint.” “Remo Williams” sounds like some guy that sells musical instrument accessories for a living . . .

An entertaining idea, for your Saturday Evening’s enjoyment. Only in the Land of the Free, and the Home of the Brave. CNN = fail.

Sorry I’m a little late. As I post this, it’s just about midnight, so I guess I’m in under the wire. At least in some time zones. Woulda gotten it posted sooner, but I was driving back from Dallas and my mini-vacation. (And a side note to the schmuck who keyed my dad’s van – the one with the WWII Vet and handicap plates – the Karma Police have an APB out for you. And I hope they force you to drink a litre of Diet Coke and force-feed you Mentos until your stomach explodes with the white-hot intensity of a thousand suns. Choke on it.)

If you watch TV (and let’s face it…who doesn’t?) you’ve likely seen the weirdly funny Old Spice commercials featuring the “Old Spice Guy” who is simultaneously a man’s man and a ladies man (nice work if you can get it). Recently, the Old Spice Guy replied to a number of questions posed to him via Twitter, via YouTube videos. (Lest RF think this has nothing to do with guns, watch all the way to the end.) Now if we can just get our podcasting stuff working, perhaps we can answer your questions the way the Old Spice Guy does. (But with our shirts on…we don’t wanna overwhelm anybody.)

Way back in the day, my day-job career was (briefly) threatened, when desktop publishing tools hit the market, and every Tom, Dick, and Head suddenly thought that they were print designers. YouTube brings that same logic to movie-making.

Saturday Evening Post: The Green Hornet

Coming later this year, the long-awaited version of the classic show The Green Hornet. Sort of. From the trailer, this looks like another one of those “reimagined” things where Hollywood just can’t be bothered to do what everybody wants to see, and decided to turn it into a vanity project for some semi-talented actor, an overly-indulged director, and a nod to “modern tastes and sensibilities” (read: “fart jokes”). I loved the Green Hornet TV show, back in the 60’s. It was a little campy, but who really cared? It had Bruce Lee playing Kato. This new version seems to be a tailor-made vehicle for Seth Rogen. That’s not good . . .

In honor of tomorrow’s celebration of dad-hood (and an acknowledgement and anticipation of all the bad ties, questionable after shaves, and lopsided, handmade ashtrays we fathers will see tomorrow), here’s a recording of Elton John’s “My Father’s Gun.” Given his well-documented preferences, not sure Sir Elton will ever become a father (although I know some people who know some people that known him who insist he can be a real mother at times), but the song is interesting, nonetheless. Enjoy!
