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 care what you thought of him. (On the downside, he was also a clinically depressed alcoholic who took his own life, so there’s some brickbats […]
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 makes me think of the Al Queda version of Clue – Ahmed in the Shower with an AK-47 for some reason. Or something. All I know is […]
[HTML1] 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.

You wanna see gun control? Watch this little clip. Gotta love snipers…
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 – […]
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 […]
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.
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 […]
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 […]
A little something for the ladies in the TTAG audience today – a performance of You Can’t Get a Man WIth a Gun, from the musical Annie Get Your Gun. This clip features Cal Sate/Fullerton student Jamie Hartmann as Annie Oakley. Enjoy!
