Remakes and Reboots

Posted by LC Aggie Sith on Friday, May 17, 2013 in Icon, Movies, Open Thread

I hate them all.

As an avowed Trekkie™ (yes, TREKKIE. I hated TNG with a passion of three burning Betelgeuses), I am not thrilled at the whole prospect of the Star Trek reboot, much less the new flick. I’m sorry, I just can NOT deal with it. I know, I know…. not very open-minded of me. Whatever…. I am open-minded about what counts, like Steak Tartare and UGGs.

And now they have gone and remade The Evil Dead.

What the SHIT, people??

There are certain movies with which you do NOT fuck!! Gone With The Wind, Citizen Kane, shit, even that racist tripe Birth of a Nation should never, ever be remade. Oh, don’t think I didn’t see what they did with The Wizard of Oz. They knew they couldn’t remake it, so they did the next best thing: tell the story from a different point of view. Whatever. My point is, some things you just LEAVE THE FUCK ALONE!!!

What remakes or reboots have offended your sensibilities lately?? :D

What a Week

Posted by LC Aggie Sith on Friday, May 10, 2013 in Funny Pics, Icon, Open Thread

This week we heard from whistleblowers on what happened in Benghazi last September, found a trio of women that had been missing for over ten years sequestered in some animal’s basement, had several families rip Teh Prez a new asshole demand answers over the helicopter crash that killed members of SEAL Team 6, Boston police disclose that FBI never shared information with them over the islamojihadist asswipes, and the Dow Jones broke the 15,000 mark.

Oh, and Prince Harry is here on a tour.

what-the-hell

Seriously, what the hell?? What is so special about this week, anyway?? It’s almost like it’s going through menopause.

Oh, right…. MOTHER’S DAY!!!

Well, good luck with the rest of the week ;)

Icon of the Week

Posted by LC Aggie Sith on Tuesday, March 5, 2013 in Awesomeness, Icon, Retro hooker

It has been a long time since I featured an icon. But I was watching Vertigo a few days ago, and remembered how beautiful and striking Kim Novak was back in the day.

The first movie I saw her in was Bell Book and Candle. I loved that movie, and my dad said if I really liked her, I should watch Vertigo. Needless to say, that was awesome. And then she quietly retired to Oregon, where she raised horses and llamas.

Is it any wonder I like her??

And she liked pearls, too.

If y’all would like to watch some of her movies, Turner Classic Movies will be hosting a Kim Novak tribute with an interview and several of her films on March 6. Grab some popcorn :)

I’m not one to have aspirations of a dream car. To me, a car is just utilitarian. But if I had to choose, I have to pick a silver Thunderbird.

silver t-bird

Why, you may ask? Well, because of this.

Now, I’m not saying I am *ahem* ascended from the Divine in any way. I’m just saying that God and I have great taste. I’ll never own one, but it’s nice to want it from afar. That’s what I tell myself whenever I drive the SUV full of screaming kids. Actually, that’s what I tell myself all the time.

So, if money were no object, what would be your ultimate dream car?

And the Tesla™ doesn’t count :D

Icon of the Week

Posted by LC Aggie Sith on Monday, August 20, 2012 in Awesomeness, Everyday Hero, Icon

It is a sad day indeed. Comedienne Phyllis Diller passed away at the grand age of 95. She taught me a very good lesson once.

A smile is a curve that sets everything straight.

One thing I loved about her was her style. She did for sequins what George Burns did for cigars. I hope right now she is in Heaven keeping the angels in stitches, and yelling at her husband, Fang.

And the one thing I best learned from her? How to cackle ;)

Hat tip: maestrosemprinin

DeadPool Update [ArmedGeek]: Maestro Semprini seems to be the only one with Diller on his list. He gets 5 points for the death and Lizard gets the 2 points for the first report.

the_botnet is still in the lead.

Dropping like flies

We’ve lost a couple of greats recently.

Auto legend Carroll Shelby died Thursday night at Baylor Hospital in Dallas at the age of 89.

From Autoweek:

Carroll Shelby’s shadow stretched out Texas tall across nearly the whole of the world’s automotive landscape. A natural as a race driver, he won three U.S. sports-car championships in Ferraris and Maseratis, and for Aston Martin he won the 1959 24 Hours of Le Mans with British co-driver Roy Salvadori.

From The Washington Post:

Donald “Duck” Dunn, the bassist who helped create the gritty Memphis soul sound at Stax Records in the 1960s as part of the legendary group Booker T. and the MGs and contributed to such classics as “In the Midnight Hour,” ‘’Hold On, I’m Coming” and “Sitting on the Dock of the Bay,” died Sunday at 70.

Dunn, whose legacy as one of the most respected session musicians in the business also included work with John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd’s Blues Brothers as well as with Levon Helm, Eric Clapton, Neil Young and Bob Dylan, died while on tour in Tokyo.

And apparently, none of you fuckers had either of them in the pool. I am disappoint.

Walken Along Saturday

Posted by LC Aggie Sith on Saturday, March 3, 2012 in Funny Pics, Icon, Randomness

I had a great time last night visiting with an old friend and making new ones. And I was a good Catholic! I didn’t partake of any cheesecake, chocolate mousse or angelfood cake I made and served, nor of the moscato or the pinot noir.

Aggie-2, Lent-0!! That means it’s time for more cowbell!!

Yeah, I’m watching Sleepy Hollow today. Even as the Headless Horseman he exuded coolness.

Of course, a cool front moved in and the dogs went batshit with all the wind noise outside, so that woke me up at 4 AM, and I stayed up with them until 5 AM. So, I pretty much just stayed awake until the alarm went off. So now, I feel like this:

Hope y’all enjoy your Saturday!! :D
