Keep Redheads out of Iraq!

PrinceHarry.jpgI don't approve of sending Prince Harry, or any redhead for that matter, off to Iraq. It's wrong and it could endanger the future of my pool of redheads, daywalkers and ginger kids to choose from. KEEP REDHEADS OUT OF IRAQ!

A grain of salt for you people out there: crimeny, I don't hate the film Brokeback Mountain - I liked it and it was a well-made film. I was just kidding in yesterday's post because people get so goddamn worked up about that movie it is entertaining to me to see people have a spaz about it when I say I didn't like it. It's just a movie, calm down people!

Again, only 95% of what you read on this blog is true. I like most Ang Lee films, and I think he gets the best out of his actors. All his films are the same - he does angst very well. Whether it is Ennis, The Hulk, Chow Yung-Fat or Sigourney Weaver, all the characters in his movies have regrets. I just watched The Hulk last weekend again and I've never seen Sam Elliott or Nick Nolte act that well before - they both have these awesome raving monologues in the film. And that woofy Eric Bana totally plays a typical tortured Ang Lee character throughout the entire film.

Apparently there was some hot scruffy redhead in The Hulk but I somehow missed him.

With the weather getting warmer, mornings coming sooner and sunsets happening later I have noticed a light at the end of the tunnel in terms of my mood. It's easier to get up in the morning, and it's much nicer to leave work when it is still light outside. December and January seem to be the worst months, and I'm never really aware of how sour my mood is until I start feeling better. And the sex drive returns too. It's sorta like listening to Morrissey songs for two months and then one day waking up feeling like this:

Or like this:

Redheads need to be sent to Arizona to patrol our borders and do strip searches in Tucson-area gay bars.

Oh my god, Prince's bodyguard was a huge bearded daddy!

What are you trying to do, Jimbo?! Redheads should go to Iraq. Take them away and troop morale may fall and then the terrorists will win. Jimbo is for the terrorists.

People in Iraq will have to be content looking at pictures of redheads on the Internets.

In all reality, Harry will not see anything in the "frontlines" given his priviliged status. Just like the Other British Royals of the second half of the 20th century, he will not see any real "action" and his duties will be lite. I bet a happy meal that he will be given an officers rank as well.

You actually liked the HULK? oy vei.
I did not like Brokeback Mountain. infact I fell asleep half way through the movie, ask Rob.

Given the large population of folks in Baltimore of Irish/Celtic stock.. there is a large population/genetic stock of red headed men & women. I think they all take the same MARC commuter train as I do. ;-) Its a well kept secret

If you like Damian Lewis, he was the main character in the 2001 HBO miniseries Band of Brothers, so you get to see him for many hours. http://www.hbo.com/band/landing/currahee.html http://imdb.com/name/nm0507073/

I was afraid Ghost Rider would suck. I think I'll go see 23 instead w/Jimmy boy. Kind of a dark movie for him.

Damien was also in the excellent Forsyte Sage on Masterpiece Theatre. If we ever have kids, we're going to name one Soames.

If we're going to send someone to Iraq, let's send Jenna and Barbara . . . oh heck while we at it, let's send Mary too!

Sheesh, if anyone should be sent to iraq, its the gingerkids! There'd be a lot less death if we had an army of scary gingerkids terrifying everyone. The Bad Guys™ would all just run away instead of firing weapons.
