So sick of complacence now
I've got no patience now
So sick of complacence now
Sick of sick of sick of sick of you
Time has come to pay!"
---Rage Against The Machine "Know Your Enemy"
David has instituted random notes in his daily posts recently. And since I haven't done a Free Ramble-style post in a few weeks, it's time for me to go random as well.
---I've finally seen "Napoleon Dynamite" (hey Corco!). It's everything that it's cracked up to be. Growing up on the West Coast, I remember tetherball very well. Down here in Arkansas, I haven't seen a tetherball pole at the local schools. Maybe I'm not looking hard, I don't know. As for tetherball, I played it a few times, horribly I might add. I was a dodgeball guy. Wasn't everyone?
I'm waiting to see a movie that features pickleball. Pickleball would be a great sport to be televised on The Ocho. Hey, if it's almost a sport, they'll televise it!
---I don't know what to say about Hootie and the Blowfish lead singer Darius Rucker appearing in the new Burger King commercial. I wish somebody would mock Hootie's songs in next year's "American Idol" auditions.
---Speaking of "American Idol", David said his favorite is Lindsey Cardinale. She's good, but I have to go with Carrie Underwood. Underwood is from Oklahoma, while Cardinale is from Louisiana. I love Southern girls, dammit. From the first day I stepped foot in Arkansas, I told myself I have to find a Southern girl. I'm still waiting, but I'm not desperate.
Oh, back to "Idol". I have to say, Kelly Clarkson is actually pretty good. Who knew?
---Motley Crue is coming to Arkansas on September 23. Will Mick Mars live to see the Natural State? I like the Crue. But I'm not going to shell out 70 bucks to go see a band that hasn't had a big hit since 1989. No, "Afraid" doesn't count.
Besides, if I didn't go see the Van Halen show last fall, why would I go see the Crue? You tell me. Oh, and do yourself a favor, crank up the "Shout At The Devil" album. Or the "Too Fast For Love" album. You can't go wrong with either one.
---THIS IS MY HAPPY FACE!
---"Man Of The House". The only thing that movie has going for itself is the women. Unfortunately, they aren't wearing chaps like the real Texas pom-pom girls do.
---The Fleet Center may be renamed "The Derek Jeter Center" for a day, if a New York lawyer has his way. Why don't they just rename the building "The Bucky Dent Place"? Or "Pat Riley Forum"? I got a better one. How about the "Mookie Wilson Convocation Center"?
---No, here's the best name for the Fleet Center:
"No Championships Allowed Center"
The Celtics and Bruins haven't won a championship since calling the Fleet Center home.
---Of course, I can call the Key Arena "Tall People Not Welcome Arena".

To end this little post here...
Here's the "Napoleon Dynamite" soundboard.
What are you going to do today, Napoleon?
WHATEVER I FEEL LIKE I'M GOING TO DO, GOSH!
