Over the past couple of years this blog has been basically dormant. In an effort to try to reinvigorate the blogging/writing vibes, I’m going to attempt a few random, rambling posts, quite aptly called “Randomlies”. These will include snippets of things that amuse/irritate me, my brain farts, some useless opinions, assorted toothless rants, etc, etc. Without further ado:
Lance Armstrong: Was there really anyone who believed he wasn’t doping? Whichever way – he deserves all the scorn he is getting. Not for the doping per se (since apparently cycling is one of the dirtiest sports out there) but retribution for all the people he duped for years with that phony Superman/Mr Clean persona. Oh yeah, and for the many folks he sued and tried to destroy when they alleged he was doping. Screw you Lance.
Django Unchained: Freaking AWESOME film! Tarantino has solidified his place on my Top 10 list of film-makers. Christoph Waltz and Samuel L Jackson were outstanding. Jamie Foxx and Leo DiCaprio, both over-rated actors in my opinion, actually held their own quite admirably. The weakest link was Kerry Washington, who really didn’t have much to do except cry, scream and make eyes at Django. For those folks complaining that the word “nigger” was used eleventy-hundred times – well yeah, this was slavery times people. That was the word used back then so let’s give the political correctness a rest. And as for the other people bemoaning the blood, gore, irreverent humour, soundtrack and visual look of the film, it’s obvious they’ve probably never seen a Tarantino movie, since all of the above is his signature style.
Google Sync for BlackBerry has stopped working so now my buggy, slow chunk of RIM is literally, LITERALLY useless for work purposes. (My kingdom for an Android device!!)
This month Grenada kicks off the region’s marine and yachting events with the Budget Marine Spice Island Billfish Tournament January 22nd to 26th and Grenada Sailing Week January 31st to February 5th. I may not fish or sail but I sure love to lime, so I’ll be there taking the first prize in the 50ml Beer Sprint.
And here ya go. A little something that had me chuckling since I first saw it. Haven’t we all wanted to do that to someone?
