Buh-bye

Ladies and Gents, after today I will never set foot in the disgusting, diseased, third-world shit-hole of Los Angeles ever.  Again.  Period.



YEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!

Light Posting Warning

Gonna be content free for a few days.  Life will go on.  Check out the sidebar!

So now Glenn Frey is gone as well

I grew up listening to the Eagles.  But in all reality, their careers were over by the time I entered high school, if not long before.  Out of all the folks who have passed lately I think I'll miss Alan Rickman the most, because he was a delight to watch in any role.

However, I don't know if I'm really broken up about it.  I see lots of people all upset over Bowie, and Rickman, and the other folks who have died lately, while my reaction has been one more of "Oh damn, that sucks."

I think it's because A) as a Catholic, I don't believe that death is the end.  It's just a transition.

And B)  People die.  Careers die, and I think Glenn Frey's career died long before he did.  That doesn't mean I don't like his music, or that he didn't have talent; he had tons of talent, and I've spent hours singing along to a lot of his songs.  But there's new music coming out every day.  I'll be quoting Alan Rickman until the day I die (....and CALL OFF CHRISTMAS!") but there are other actors still making a name for themselves who I'll enjoy next year.

Life is a cycle.  The world keeps turning.  Nothing we can do will stop that.

Thank God

Reality prevails.

The U.S. Air Force has decided to indefinitely postpone the retirement of the legendary A-10 Thunderbolt II ground attack plane. The venerable Warthog's increased role in the air campaign against the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria was the Pentagon's main reason for the postponement.

There is no other aircraft in the US inventory that can do what the A-10 does, period.  And what it does is save the ass of the US military man on the ground, time and time again, getting in low and slow before pounding the ever-loving shit out of the bad guys.

I posted a video on the A-10 back in 2008.  Seems like a good time to link to it.  I tried to repost the vid here, but that didn't work too well for me, although the video works in the original post.

"You see that blinking light in the sky?  That is the HAND OF GOD!"

Seahawks are out

You can't give up 31 points in the first half, folks.  Maybe try whatever you were doing in the second half, but in the first half?

Yeah.  Poop.  Now it's six months of no football..
