Title: THE ENDLESS, POINTLESS thread
Post by: Matt on December 03, 2002, 07:53:15 PM
This is a labor of love for my friend, bdc28, who started what was to eventually be the LONGEST thread of all time.  Well, it got to 17 pages before it had to end.

Or DID it have to end???

With a little cooperation from everyone, I will reconstruct the original ENDLESS, POINTLESS thread post by post.  It will probably take a few days, so I ask that no one posts in this thread UNTIL it's up to date.  I will probably lock it each night until I can return to it the next day.  But, we NEED this thread... we can't just start completely from scratch.  It MUST continue.  THE ENDLESS, POINTLESS THREAD MUST GO ON!!!!!!!!

Stay tuned... and sometime in the next few days, you will once again be able to add your nothing thoughts to this thread. :)

Okay, seeing how the McVeigh string got SOOO off topic (with Daisy's flummary...GOD I love that word), I thought I would create a new string.

I want to NOT dedicate this string to anything in particular except the rantings and ravings of us page hitters. I only ask for a few things..

ONE: That Daisy keep the sexual innuendo going as much as possible.

TWO: That Matt stay off his meds a few days before his posts. I like when he gets delusional.

THREE: That AKA lets me know A) what he was previously known as and B) why he is currently known as 23.

FOUR: That KC keep using HUMONGOUS words that send me to the dictionary. Well, also that she marry me, but thats probably going to be up for discussion.

Let this be the longest thread. Whatever you want to talk about, keep it going.

Duvets
Yes, I said Duvets. Just imagine all films - ALL films were about duvets.

Firm and plump and warm. Here's the ones that starred Clint:

The Good, The Bad and The Duvet

Duvet's Heroes

Where Duvets Dare

High Plains Duvet

White Hunter, Black Duvet

Dirty Duvet

Sudden Duvet

and of course: Play Duvet for Me

all the best

in order to make this the longest thread i think i'd have to type one word per post...
but i dont have that kind of time, nor patience. i have more important things to do like watch eastwood movies...right? although that may be heading toward an "on" topic discussion. so instead, i'll watch bill and ted's excellent adventure in hopes of decreasing my IQ even more.

"i am so smart! S-M-R-T! I mean S-M-A-R-T!"

this is the thread that never ends. it just goes on and on my friends...blah blah blah something something uh...yeah!

so sad...so very sad.

i hope this made no sense.

Whoa, a marriage proposal. Thats a new one for this board. You know, rumor has it that all of KCs potential suitors have to take both grammar and literature exams. (http://www.clinteastwood.org/ubb/wink.gif)
Ok, I'll keep the thread going with some of my mindless and random ramblings:
I got a blind date (just talked on the phone) this Friday. I'll get right to the point for everyone: she really likes Eastwood.
I watched "Time Bandits" the other day for millionth time.
I went boating last weekend and my boat broke down on me. I floated to a boat ramp owned by the redneckest redneck I've ever met. Nice guy though.
The Journey concert Tuesday night in Raleigh rocked. The new guy sounds as good as Perry.

but to continue the randomness...

more advice for hikers:
leaves of three -- rub it all over yourself.

if attacked by a bear, give it a hug. it probably just wants a little love.

if a naked man runs at you screaming about the downfall of society, punch him in the nuts.

With her I'm more interested in the potential long-term anyway, so its cool.

Right now I'm going through one of those "oh-sh!t-I'm-going-to-die-alone" phases, maybe if that wears off I will. I really don't even know her yet though.
She'll probably dump me the second she sees me klunking around town in my '81 AMC Eagle. It sounds like a volcano erupting when it starts up, shakes violently above 65 MPH, and there is no air conditioning.

Conan, you're still young. I've got nine years on you and I'm still single. It does start to get a little.... discomforting. But, then again, nearly all of my friends who married young have already divorced and are on, or heading toward, a second marriage. So maybe we're not doing so badly after all.
Now, I don't want the 'gory' or even the 'non-gory' details of this date. Just let us know if it works out. She's already got one good thing in her corner... she's an Eastwood fan. And if you had a great phone conversation with her, that says more than just about anything.

Good luck! (http://www.clinteastwood.org/ubb/smile.gif)

You might want to modify that a little, MattR. There is one time to mention Sinatra and that's at the end of Space Cowboys. He's perfect there.

Great!! She asked me out for tonight by e-mail early this morning, but had to retract later when she found out her dad is stopping by to visit. We are going out again Wednesday(July 4th) since I have the entire day off. Probably an all-day date.
It wasn't the best date I've ever had, but by far the best first date. I have a big, stupid grin on my face as I write this and that is pretty good considering all we did was talk. She's all-around perfect (so far anyway).

I better stop writing before I make everyone sick... (http://www.clinteastwood.org/ubb/smile.gif)

What did I say that was Insulting?! I dont see the difference between my post and yours.
its seems a peculialy American trait to withdraw remarks without really withdrawing them.You still make me look like a heel even when you are ostensibly posting a"generous" retraction.
Its srange guys but the English people I talk to off board know where Im coming from to a greater extent than the other nationalities.
I called this a parochrial,insular country,so theres no need to post that opinion.Get over your attitudes guys, its past time.

If I repeated what you said that was insulting, then I'd be putting it right back up on the board again, wouldn't I? Just think about what you write, and if you'd want something said about yourself in the same manner.
I pointed out that your post was insulting because you asked why you were being treated differently from the others on the board that routinely banter with each other. I don't think my edited post above shows you to be a heel, but that's not my intention behind it. I know you edited your post a second time after I edited mine, so I can't be sure of the original wording that you used that I responded to. But in any case, can we move on now before we start with the British vs. Americans stuff again?

Some Bob Dylan poetry (from Blood on the Tracks)


You're Gonna Make Me Lonesome When You Go

I've seen love go by my door
It's never been this close before
Never been so easy or so slow.
Been shooting in the dark too long
When somethin's not right it's wrong
Yer gonna make me lonesome when you go.

Dragon clouds so high above
I've only known careless love,
It's always hit me from below.
This time around it's more correct
Right on target, so direct,
Yer gonna make me lonesome when you go.

Purple clover, Queen Anne lace,
Crimson hair across your face,
You could make me cry if you don't know.
Can't remember what I was thinkin' of
You might be spoilin' me too much, love,
Yer gonna make me lonesome when you go.

Flowers on the hillside, bloomin' crazy,
Crickets talkin' back and forth in rhyme,
Blue river runnin' slow and lazy,
I could stay with you forever
And never realize the time.

Situations have ended sad,
Relationships have all been bad.
Mine've been like Verlaine's and Rimbaud.
But there's no way I can compare
All those scenes to this affair,
Yer gonna make me lonesome when you go.

Yer gonna make me wonder what I'm doin',
Stayin' far behind without you.
Yer gonna make me wonder what I'm sayin',
Yer gonna make me give myself a good talkin' to.

I'll look for you in old Honolulu,
San Francisco, Ashtabula,
Yer gonna have to leave me now, I know.
But I'll see you in the sky above,
In the tall grass, in the ones I love,
Yer gonna make me lonesome when you go.

The British versus thing is something you guys seem to obsess about, like any critiscism of the two cultures is an attack on"Truth,justice and the whatsit...."
When I said parochrial,and insular I meant Britain.I can take comments on ths culture like I can take comments about me.This IS the problem.This might be"The Pointless Endless Thread",but I wont make it anymore pointless or endless by going on about this,thats it.

CONAN...bud!!! As acting president of the CEBC, you have to let me know if I have to retract your membership. I will email you the forms, which you have to fill out, in triplicate, copy in duplicate, and initial where you both begin writing at the top of each page and at the bottom of the last page. Also Conan use what I do to win a woman over. STALKING. Nothing warms a womans heart like finding you crouched down in her closet in the laundry basket.

ALSO, I have the only reserved rights to actually insult Matt. I have papers to that affect, and are at the string www.insultMattCauseHeTriedToTakeNBCfromMeAndNBCcalledMeMattDuringSexAndMadeMeCryButOnlyAlittle.com (only joking, she didnt call me Matt, but she did keep calling me Fido, quite disturbing.

Yea haha, I remember GMAT. I recall because she kept obsessing about it and I said something sarastic to her and she snapped at me. She was in a few other flame wars if I remember correctly.

Yep, it was Gretchen. I can't believe you remember that!

You just can't win
And so it goes
Till the day you die
This thing they call love
It's gonna make you cry

Gunny, since you 'actively dislike' Dylan... would you like a burned copy of "Blood on the Tracks"? I made an extra one and would love to pass it on to someone who can't stand the man. Who knows, you may listen to it, really listen and grow to love it.

Dylan's music is definitely something that you can grow to appreciate. I didn't like his voice at first, but loved the lyrics. In time, the voice grows on you. And now, I can do a pretty good Dylan impression (after a few beers (http://www.clinteastwood.org/ubb/wink.gif) )

Like the female spider eats the male afterwards!Is that why we we always fall asleep staight away?
On a lighter note;make me treasurer,no-one is ever going to worry about the state of the exchequer because no-one can understand a word I say.
Heres a good story;during the fuel protests last year I watched "Unforgiven",it was soooo quiet here,it gets kinda busy but then we work hard round here.
At the same time a certain Mr.J Daniels was celebrating his 150th birthday,AND commemorated the occasion by selling said liquid in the traditional bottle and a special J.D tin.
A specimin of which sits before me as we speak(I trod on it recently and it isnt what it was but still).Anyhow I started using it to collect all my"petty cash",thats lke "petty officer",major Powers?Anyway I could put all the money in this slightly "beat up crate!"and we could all go out to eat tacos or buy vids, or eat guacamole, or drink the"Recon Maguerita"....

I have Gino's CEBC Lunacy Card printed and am in the process of laminating it. It will be ready and forwarded to him before the end of this business day.

Now, onto other business... I have received Gino's application for Treasurer and have reviewed it. Everything seems to be in order, however there is one process remaining... the interview.  (http://home.swfla.rr.com/mattreigns/instantwink.gif)

Gino, my friend and fellow member, you have had the good fortune to listen to the classic rock CD's that I have sent you... The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix and The Doors. All I need to approve your application is a little.... statement. In writing, of course. This statement shall include the following... 1) a confession of how good the aforementioned music is... 2) an acknowledgment that I was RIGHT all along (God I love this job)... and 3) a thank you for introducing you to the world of GOOD music.

I'm sure once this statement is received, that the application will be approved.  (http://home.swfla.rr.com/mattreigns/instantwink.gif)

Anyway while I am waiting for personal, engraved not to mention laminated card, here's my thoughts to the aforementioned music. I will begrudgingly admit.. that you were right that music is good.. (But, you have to realize that Sinatra is good too HAHAHA. You know I had to but that in.) BUT I will have to deduct points for you not warning me about Bob Dylan. Crist, I thought that somebody was dying when I first heard his voice!

As for the rest of the music, I will have to give you your props and say that you did good kid.. you did real good.

NOW! WHERE"S MY DAMN CARD!!! I have places to rob, people to extort and blackmail, warehouses to burn down and lots of lovely showgirls dying to show me a good time! (http://home.swfla.rr.com/mattreigns/instantbiggrin.gif)

When you fulfill ALL the requirements, I'll approve your application. (http://home.swfla.rr.com/mattreigns/instantwink.gif)

The situation is great! She's coming over tomorrow night (her birthday). She's promised me that "e-mail dump" was a fluke, she had freaked out over a pile of schoolwork and was afraid that she would be spending too much time with me and not enough on school.
Even though I'll be a little paranoid for a few weeks because of that e-mail, I really have a good feeling about her and I.

thekid, go thru this string completely and you will get it, its actually one of many ongoing jokes between MattR and me. The CEBC stands for the Clint Eastwood Bachelor Club. And yes, Clint is our god...but thats okay. I want my god to look at me in heaven and say "Every mans got to know his limitations". Or maybe say "Hey, daisy beat you here and shes been wearing a teddy waiting for you". Well, like I said, every man can dream.

spanking monkeys, wearing teddies, punching bears in the nuts!!! so much animal abuse these days.
i visited the cemetary next door. i found a headstone with the name "Texas Slaughter Badkins" at the Badkins family plot. do you think his parents named him that? Everyone else in the plot had normal names.

There were also a lot of women named fannie.
There was once a woman who had lost her daughter. she looked everywhere for her and eventually went to the police. she asked, "Oh! have you seen my fannie?" the cop replied,"No, but i sure wish i had!" HAR HAR HAR

All of the single guys on this board decided to circle the wagons and form a Bachelors club. This is mainly due to all the mind gaming, wallet leeching, pride sucking, no-we-will-watch-Fried-Green-Tomatoes-instead-of-an-action-movie drama-queens out there. Of course, none of the aformentioned applies to any of the classy women on this board or my girlfriend. Anyways, membership includes box seats at Wrestlemania and a year subscription to "Biggins" magazine.

*taking thekid aside*

Look Kid, lemme try to explain it to you. I know this is going to shock you, as you seem to be under the impression (as AKA is) that I, along with other members of the CEBC, are morally upstanding and intelligent individuals of sound mind. But that's really just a cover. In reality, we're all insane. And the more insane we are, the higher up the board of directors of the CEBC we rise. BDC is our leader and I'm second in charge.  (http://home.swfla.rr.com/mattreigns/instantbiggrin.gif)

Membership in the CEBC requires the following:

1) Must be at least 18 years of age
2) Must be unmarried and at least somewhat sexually deprived (which lends itself to the lunacy we exhibit on an hourly basis)
3) Must worship Clint Eastwood (our god) and his workings
4) Must pay annual dues to our treasurer, Gino M (failure to do so will result in broken limbs or a swim in the East River)
5) Must treat all bachelorette members with dignity and respect (failure to do so will result in automatic expulsion from the club and thinly veiled hostility from the Vice President)
6) Must have an active imagination and sense of humor

Now Kid, you should have a more clear image of what the CEBC is. Take it with you, and come back when you fulfill all the club requirements. Until then, enjoy the rantings of the club members and don't ever believe everything you read .  (http://home.swfla.rr.com/mattreigns/instantwink.gif)

Well, firstly let me say, aside from what Matt says, I am not crazy..I am not a lun...hold on..*swatting at imaginary pink bats* ...where was I?

OH YES. Well, as President of CEBC, I have noticed some things that are going on.

We have to make room for the female members for the CEBC. Times have progressed, and womens issues are not to be ignored (which is how we GOT in the CEBC).

My point is gentleman, we have to find a "position" for NothingButChaps. She is a giver and a true champion of our cause.

As "actively" as KC has been "working" with the members of the CEBC (primarily the vice president MATTR), we have not promoted her to a "position" as well. This is not tolerable.

Dais has decided to put herself in different positions WITHIN and UPON the CEBC, to which it has been highly approved. But must be made official.

So, please speak your peace members. We must "unite" in our time of "need". (http://home.swfla.rr.com/mattreigns/instantrazz.gif)

Other things just make you swear and curse
When you're chewing on life's gristle
Don't grumble, give a whistle
And this'll help things turn out for the best
And...always look on the bright side of life
Always look on the light side of life

If life seems jolly rotten
There's something you've forgotten
And that's to laugh and smile and dance and sing
When you're feeling in the dumps
Don't be silly chumps
Just purse your lips and whitsle,
That's the thing

And always look on the bright side of life
Always look on the bright side of life

For life is quite absurd
And death's the final word
You must always face the curtain with a bow
Forget about your Sin,
Give the audience a grin
Enjoy it - it's your last chance anyhow

So always look on the bright side of death
Just before you draw your terminal breath

Life's a piece of sh!t
When you look at it
Life's a laugh and death's a joke
It's true
You'll see it's all a show
Keep 'em laughing as you go
Just rememeber that the last laugh is on you

NBC, no I havent really wondered that, I have been thinking out the great mysteries of the world.

*How much wood would a wood chuck chuck if a wood chuck could chuck wood? ANSWER: 6...I can prove this on a abbacus.

*If a tree fell and no one was there to hear it, would it make a sound? ANSWER: Yes, if the tree has a very vocal personality to begin with, it will probably wail a little.

*How did the band TEARS FOR FEARS get international acclaim back in the eighties? ANSWER: Cocaine people, LOTS of cocaine used in this country.

*Same question, regarding David Hasselhoff? Hmm, still working on that one. He and Cisqo are kinda puzzling great minds.

*Ultimate Irony: Jim Fixx dies of a heart attack while running, and Keith Richards, who shoots heroin into his eyeball, is still alive. The war on drugs just doesnt seem to make sense.

*John Lennon was murdered, but Barry Manilow CONTINUES to make albums. If youre going to kill, please...have some taste. "Get in the car, I know where WHAM! and Kenny Rogers lives!"

to see yourself inside of a mirrored sphere, would you not have to have some sort of light? and if you did, it would reflect all over and magnify, i think. therefore i doubt you would see anything at all. your eyeballs would have burned to a crisp and your flesh would begin to bubble and smoke. so i doubt you would care what it would look like inside this particular death trap.

I know you can take a dump inside an elevator, and that's certainly a point to concentarte on. It also becomes an immediate point of conversation with whoever happens to be riding in there with you.

Someone says, "You cannot be serious," and the other person replies, "I HOPE NOT!!!"

While you're at it, who said, "I mean now to be serious. It is time"?

Hmmmmm, a poser.

They don't sound familiar, not off the top of my head, but I'll give it a think.

The "serious" quote that leaps most immediately to mind is of course from the original Airplane! (1980):


Quote
TED STRIKER (Robert Hays): Surely you can't be serious.

DR. RUMACK (Leslie Nielsen): I am serious...and don't call me Shirley.


Once I get that out of my head, maybe the others will come to me?

One CEBC President who was last seen intervening with flummary on the Clint Eastwood Web Board nearly two weeks ago. If anyone knows the whereabouts of this gentleman (and I use the term loosely), please tell him to post again soon before the entire forum gets too rational.

It's lonely at the top (http://home.swfla.rr.com/mattreigns/instantsad.gif) Where aaaaare you BDC28???? Don't leave all the flummary to me, it's too much pressure trying to keep things insane around here all on my own. Besides, KC's found that ten foot pole again and has gathered shellacking material. I don't know how much longer before I'm completely indisposed and then who's going to run things? We'll wind up leaving all of our business in Gino's hands, and if anyone upsets him, members will mysteriously start disappearing....  (http://home.swfla.rr.com/mattreigns/instanteek.gif)

THE RETURN OF DIRTY HARRY, SIDEBAR STORY:

A drunken man, slovenly, sits in an alleyway drinking MD20/20. He lays back in a stupor, covered in newspapers. He pets his pet mouse, named KC, and slowly begins to nod off.

He looks up to see a silhoutte in the alleyway, slowly walking up to him, and softly saying..

HARRY: Are you him?
HOMELESS MAN: *belch* huh?
HARRY: Are you him, bdc28, the president of the CEBC?
HOMELESS MAN: *belch*

Harry, already tired of this diatribe, throws the homeless man into a trashcan...the homeless man looks up and cries..

HOMELESS MAN: *BELCH*
HARRY: Alright punk, up on your feet!!! Ive gotten information from my man on the street, Gino, that there are some things to be done back at CEBC. Now get going, and if I see you here again punk, Im gonna kick your ass until my kneecap catches fire.

The homeless man weaves as he flees out of the alley, dropping his bottle. He turns to face Harry, whos eyes are low from seeing a man who has fallen so far. The homeless man looks over and says..

HOMELESS MAN:.......*belch*

Hi guys!!! HEEEEEEE'S BAAAAAAAACK!!!! I apologize for the absence. I was in a car accident and couldnt really do anything for awhile. I just got back to work yesterday, as my injury has basically released (pinched nerve in back along with high burning fever).

Sidebar, thanks to Matt for the email. You are a good friend, and a real bud. Also thanks to Gino for making sure that I had a good alibi all the time that I was gone. You know how shoddy witness protection can be, and to show my gratitude, I will NOT look into that investigation about misallocated funds in the CEBC, and will NOT ask where you got the NEW boat from.

Also, high kudos to Matt for keeping the high standard of flummary level going that we have come to know and....love? I will strive to keep things OUT of perspective as well as he does.

On that note...*belch*...let me cruise the board and see what kind of mayhem I can create (http://home.swfla.rr.com/mattreigns/instantwink.gif)

I think not! Damn right I sent Gino out to find you!! Now you'd better not disappear on us again... I've got more important things to do than to head up the CEBC all by myself. In fact, I'd better get back to those 'important things' before the champagne gets warm.

D'Ambrosia... Where ARE you? Come back! Come back!

Hey ya Matt and Gino..

Okay well Matt, in answer to your question "Where in the world is Gino M", I have an article here that I think may be an answer.

"Washington times"..John Walsh last week profiled Gino Mannanelli, one of the most dangerous gangsters ever out of New York City. Currently he is running from RICO charges stemming from his youth, which started with sheep violations to which he just graduated to humans (I dont really know what that means).

Gino M is a genius of disguise, and a master of money laundering (although I dont really see the genius of this, I mean I can throw a bunch of twenties in the washing machine). He is considered to be armed and extremely dangerous. We would show you a picture but there do not seem to be any as anyone who has ever known him, his parents included, have disappeared.

Gino, WHY DIDNT YOU COME TO US??? Dont you know the CEBC does not abandon its members? Even Daisy?? Well..ummm, okay yeah, EVEN DAISY??

I think it high time that the CEBC come together in our first scheduled meeting. Especially the female members, who have been silent about membership.

The meeting has been titled THE O.R.G.I.E "Order recalling greatness in Eastwood". A date has yet to be set, but I am going to coordinate that with Matt and Gino, as soon as Gino can find a decent payphone.

The CEBC adventure continues (http://home.swfla.rr.com/mattreigns/instantsmile.gif)

Some people are just too great! When I was looking for that Seinfeld quote, I wrote the webmaster of a Seinfeld site and he took the time to find the episode and get it for me. It's pretty funny, so here it is:

Quote
Courtesy of Your Ultimate Seinfeld Source, http://www.angelfire.com/my/seinfeld/

GEORGE: You're not goin to do it? What do you mean, You're not going to do it?

JERRY: I can't. I'm not an orgy guy.

GEORGE: Are you crazy? This is like discovering Plutonium ... by accident.

JERRY: Don't you know what it means to become an orgy guy? It changes everything. I'd have to dress different. I'd have to act different. I'd have to grow a mustache and get all kinds of robes and lotions and I'd need a new bedspread and new curtains I'd have to get thick carpeting and weirdo lighting. I'd have to get new friends. I'd have to get orgy friends. ... Naw, I'm not ready for it.

GEORGE: If only something like that could happen to me.

JERRY: Oh, shut up you couldn't do it either.

GEORGE: I know.

*cracking up*

God that's a funny scene.

So, BDC, I think we should co-ordinate the O.R.G.I.E. with the arrival of the website's 1000th member, which shouldn't be more than a few days/weeks from now.

Matt,

I think you are right, we should coordinate the planning of the O.R.G.I.E with the arrival of the 1000th member, therefore allowing the fullest potential for a 1000 member O.R.G.I.E meeting, which would probably be the largest meeting in history (about Eastwood).

I would like imput from our female members as to where this meeting should take place, primarily KC, NBC and Daisy (whose name is the only non-acronym).

Let me say, as the president of the CEBC, will be the meeting that others will hold to standard. Business meetings will change their format thanks to us.

KC, as you are on top of us (as you were duely noted before), I especially would like your "hands on" method of working with this issue.

Gino, glad to see you back bud. I tell you, its great to know that with you walking the streets again, parents all around the world, can stop making up STUPID excuses to their children why they have a curfew.

Matt, when were you EVER normal? Medicated, definitely I can see that yes. NORMAL? Could someone NORMAL work as vice president of the CEBC? Could someone NORMAL ignore the overt flirtyness of K.C and not throw himself at her? Wait...youve done that...never mind. POINT BEING, you aint normal bud.

Thoughts? Input? Games? Trivia? Manic moments? Please share

THE ENDLESS POINTLESS THREAD SURVIVES ON BABY!!!

Well, I can't speak for KC, but I think what I have that you lack is a twisted mind (http://home.swfla.rr.com/mattreigns/instantwink.gif). Hang around the CEBC long enough, Manco, and it'll wear off on you. It's an extremely contagious malady that I caught from BDC, and now I'm in a position to pass it on to others. Seriously though, I thought you and Daisy were picking wildflowers in a secluded place together. Trouble in paradise already? I've already got GMAT going after "Sarah", looks like I'd better get use to the competition from you guys. (One word of advise, Manco... the women on this board are brutal. Be very very careful, and sleep with one eye open!)

Now... enough flummary! It's time for CEBC business (taking on a serious tone of voice).

We're only twelve members away from the O.R.G.I.E., so it's time to really get things into gear. KC knows a great place to buy the satin sheets, and with 1000 members, we'll need LOTS of them.

MGK will bring the Clint Eastwood music and a karaoke machine so she can lead us in song (can't believe "karaoke" is in the dictionary. I had no idea how to spell that one LOL). Don't worry about her singing, everyone. If you survived Sondra's singing in Every Which Way But Loose, I think it's suffice to say that you'll make it through MGK's.   (http://home.swfla.rr.com/mattreigns/instantrazz.gif)

As for me, I finally won a Pale Rider Ale auction, and will be pleased to bring it to the party. Unfortunately, there's only two bottles and probably only enough for a few drops per person if we really have 1,000 people there, but it's the best I could do. I guess it wouldn't be a bad idea to bring some extra beer along... and if Daisy's right about Newcastle Brown Ale being Clint's favorite beer, I'll bring plenty of that.

Daisy can bring the ground hairs of the man/dog Dog Toby Eastwood and her clay pipe for anyone that prefers that.

Conan can bring his car so that we have something good to laugh at (SLAAAAM!!!! (http://home.swfla.rr.com/mattreigns/instantrazz.gif) (http://home.swfla.rr.com/mattreigns/instantrazz.gif) ).

BDC can bring the women, and if NothingButChaps just wants to come wearing Nothing-But-Chaps, that would be all I think we could ask for.

There not too many jacked up full-time 4X4 sport cars on the road. So at least she's original. No payments either (except for the bi-annual breakdown tows to the mechanic).

Conan, I think you just proved why most people take pictures of their cars in the DAYTIME, especially BLACK cars (http://home.swfla.rr.com/mattreigns/instantwink.gif). But... I can see it well enough to see the jack-up job.  (http://home.swfla.rr.com/mattreigns/instantbiggrin.gif)

Check out this thread that never quite got off the ground...

Cars thread

and maybe you could add a story or two to the pot about any adventures or misadventures you may have encountered in that.... vehicle.  (http://home.swfla.rr.com/mattreigns/instantrazz.gif)

I was outside Eckerd with 2 pictures left in my disposable camera. So that would explain the quality. One of these days I'll wash her up and take a picture during the day.

No great stories unfortunately. Well, except for that time I went off-roading at a Pepsi plant. But methinks I better wait for the statute (spelling?) of limitations to run out.  (http://home.swfla.rr.com/mattreigns/instantsmile.gif)

I'm sure in seven years (or whenever the statute of limitations for your 'adventure' runs out) I'll still be here... trying to guess the answers to Philo's "Odd Jobs" trivia question, and the many KC trivia questions that have my mind boggled.

How's about hopping over to the trivia section, Conan. We've got about 8 games at a standstill and could really use some "Clint Eastwood Web Board" oldtimers like yourself to help out.

Anyone who's ever been to an O.R.G.I.E knows that you are going to need lots and lots of security.

You wanna know something? On an off joke moment, it would be cool for all of us to meet one day. I mean, since Gino handles all that mob money and the hotels, he could easily make the arrangements for a REAL seminar (http://home.swfla.rr.com/mattreigns/instantwink.gif)

No, but picture it will you? *the music cues in for WHAT A WONDERFUL WORLD*....A hotel meeting room, with a large picture of Clint. With a movie screen along side it, for the all nite viewings of the members most requested movies to be shown.

Daisy and I would be off in some corner, having a long heated debate about skim milk or something else innate. Matt would be looking KC up and down, and slowly walking up to her, introducing himself with a handful of flowers, to which she would blush and abruptly kick him in the groin (at which point he would know he is in love).

All of the children would be playing in a special play area, fit with play .44 magnums and sunglasses so that every child could be Dirty Harry.

NBC would be charming the pants off of all the new members, literally. Somewhere off in the distance, you could hear Gino laughing happily, as he extorts money from one of the "newbie" members.

People would be dancing slowly, as Sondra Locke sang her song from ANY WHICH WAY YOU CAN...you could see Carlos the international terrorist....CARLOS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

BOOOM!!! *sound of gunfire*...*a handgrenade is launched by Gino at Carlos....*....

Okay, Im back...sorry. What a wonderful world (http://home.swfla.rr.com/mattreigns/instantsmile.gif)

Okay Manco, I can see you totally avoided the part of my post that included KCs gift for full frontal groin kicks. Now, although that may be total splendor and a sign of bonding on Matt's behalf, I try to avoid those as much as possible.

BUT *grin*, since she isnt in kicking distance yet...GAWD WHAT WERE THEY THINKING WHEN THEY CASTED HEARTBREAK RIDGE!!!

Hey guys,

I am sorry I had to take such a long vacation, but the webpage FOR SOME REASON forgot my logon and password. I mean how could you forget kdhr...wait thats supposed to be private. Ignore that.

Although I have been gone from the page, I have been keeping up with current times. So, with that, lets all talk up the CURRENT EVENTS!!!!!

*music cues*...WELCOME TO BDC'S CORNER!! AND NOW HERES YOUR HOST....BDC28!!!!

Thank you, thank you. I appreciate all the gifts and love...really...I do.

Well, its Halloween again, and time for me to dig out the poncho and go out this year again as Manco, although the police are restricting me from using live rounds in my pistols, I wont allow it to hurt my fun. Last year was a BLAST!!

Well, I used to think that the IRA was the Keystone cops of terrorists, until the Taliban came along. I mean, did they REALLY not think this through? "Hmmm, this president has both a father that served on the CIA for 30 some odd years, and he re-enstated the death penalty in his own state as Govenor. Maybe we can shelf this plan for say..another four years?" All I can say is, sorry about the bad weather you guys have had lately. Try an umbrella, although they dont work to well with bomb showers.

New York will announce the new building plans for the Trade center, which will actually be five buildings now. Two smaller buildings on each side, and one long one up the middle. This way it resembles giving the finger, showing its true sentiment to the Taliban.

In local news, a one armed rower keeps annoying other tourists at the lake by continually rowing in a circle.

On a more tragic note, it has been found out that Senator Ted Kennedy has once again fallen off the wagon and begun drinking today. Sources report disappointment from the Kennedy camp, as he had lasted a total half an hour on the wagon, and had renewed spirit in the house. After which, he just went back to the old familiar spirits in the bottle.

In research, a man has discovered a cure for apathy. But, sadly, no one really seems to care.

THE ENDLESS POINTLESS THREAD..though badly ignored and growing old...LIVES *cough cough*...sorry...LIVES ON BABY!!!!!

Yay! At last somewhere where I feel completely at home! I can say whatever I like - and it might not make sense, but at the same time, it will! Somewhere where I have complete knowledge...I am supreme big giant head...why didn't I discover this thread sooner?!

I'm going to choose the words of the one and only genius and philosopher, Winnie the Pooh, this time around. But there will be more, mark my words!

Cottleston, cottleston, cottleston pie,
A fly can't bird, but a bird can fly,
Ask me a riddle and I reply,
Cottleston, cottleston, cottleston pie.

Everyone should read The Tao of Pooh. And even The Te of Piglet. I went in a shop once and they were put together, as the same book, so you never know, you could save money that way and get two for the price of one.

Allycat,

I LOVE those books!!! Didnt get into Piglet as much as I got into TAO of Pooh though. Completely thru me into Taoism. I ended up reading Tao de ching (spelling) by Sun Tzu .

If you really want a great book along those lines, read THE WAY OF THE PEACEFUL WARRIOR by Dan Millman. Its subtitled "a book that changes lives". I can say for me personally that it did. Bar none one of the greats!!

Sorry I'm lagging behind a little here...work is getting the better of me. I'm knackered! (Great colloquial English phrase there! It means 'I'm really tired'!) Anyway, I liked those not-so-subtle phrases for saying someone is stupid.
Here's one you might not have heard:

A sandwich short of a picnic.

How bizarre is that?! It's not even that funny.

WHY, do I keep this thread pumping on you may ask? Am I nurturing it like some child? Do I need the validation to close this thread? Are some of his marbles not in the marble bag?

Well, yes in some ways they are. This thread was created at a time when this board went crazy(along with the members), it was also agreed (by me) that this thread would be the largest ever. EVER. So, I must not let it go. I know someday it will be closed.

Although many of the wacky folks that used to post here arent here anymore...and you know who you are...wait a minute...maybe you dont because you arent here to read that you know who you are...which came first...the chicken or the egg...HAL...OPEN THE DOORS HAL!! oops, sorry Im back.

Hope to hear from you guys soon...and remember this....wait...I forgot.

ANNUAL REPORT OF THE CEBC:

President/God of all that he surveys: bdc28

Vice President/perv/he who knows what lurks in the hearts of men: MattR

Treasurer/MIA/gangster: Gino

My...fellow pervs.

Some grave times have fallen upon the CEBC. We have faced many a crisis together, some apart...and actually..well in truth we really havent done much of anything.

But that time has past. The board grows weaker, and the posts begin to lessen. CEBC'ers around the world and looking to me, asking..why?

Could it be that our fellow posters have actually gone out and gotten lives? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA...Im sorry, I really tried to do that with a straight face...ahhh God that was funny.

Could it be that our love and passion for Clint is lessening with time? OMG that sounded stupid just TYPING IT!!! DUH!!!

No, I have thought long and hard..wait Im sorry that was a self description...I have thought about the issue..and I have come to a conclusion.

THE LADIES OF THIS BOARD JUST GOTTA PUT OUT!!!

I know, this is alot to ask of the female members. Although I have not seen many of our members here at the CEBC, judging by their self descriptions on their applications (keywords like "nice guy" or "muscular millionare"), Im pretty sure we are talking about some HOMELY folks.

These are lean times people, a time when we need to..pardon the pun...come together. We must unite.

SO, I was thinking ED's hotel and Barbeque shack.

Thoughts??

I WILL KEEP THIS THREAD ALIVE IF IT KILLS ME!!!

Thank you for your time, and God bless the CEBC.

Sorry I'm late to the meeting, BDC. I would have been here on time, but George cornered me in the hallway, begging for my address book again. God he's a pain in the @ss. You let him borrow it once, and then you can't get rid of him. And the phone calls... I can't count how many women have called me in the past few weeks asking when the hell I'll take them out again because "That Clooney guy" just doesn't do it for them. In case they're listening: Julia, Renee, soon... I'm just waiting for a certain Microsoft CEO to finally return my yacht (he's another pain in the @ss... but last time I complained after he didn't return it on time, he started e-mailing me viruses every other day. You don't want to be on Bill's bad side. But, like I said to him, if you hadn't blown $24 bill trying to create an AIDS vaccine, wipe out malaria, and put penicillin in the hands of all the underprivileged of the world, you could afford a boat like mine too. Sucker.) And finally, I must confess that as far as my membership in the CEBC... I'm getting far too much sex lately... an infringement of Rule 2b of our rules and regulations for membership. I'm afraid I may have to abandon my post. Sorry everyone.  (http://home.swfla.rr.com/mattreigns/instantsad.gif)

(http://home.swfla.rr.com/mattreigns/instantshock.gif) Oh no, here they come again.... will you excuse me for a moment.... (Damn these orderlies) *gulp, glug, glug, gulp* (Life is so much better when the meds start to wear off. (http://home.swfla.rr.com/mattreigns/instantsad.gif)  )

Okay, where were we? Oh yes, CEBC business. Ed's Hotel and Barbeque Shack is running a Spring Special... rent a room for four hours, and get a free half rack of baby back ribs. I'm thinking this sounds like the place to be. (Although, last time I was there, the cockroaches kept us up all night, but with Gino there, we shouldn't have to worry about them... a little moving target practice will make him feel right at home.)

Moving on to other business, I "second" BDC's motion that the ladies of the board put out; however, I don't really know how many women are left in the CEBC. Unfortunately, it seems most disappeared shortly after our last "Lovefest". (Do you think there's any correlation there? (http://home.swfla.rr.com/mattreigns/instantrolleyes.gif)  ) But, I'm happy to report that KC is still with us. Now if only we could get her to stop wearing those spiked heels!

Well, I see that Little Bill has submitted his application for membership to the CEBC (Clint Eastwood Bachelor/Bachelorette Club).

As Vice President, I am forwarding the above application to our President and Chief sExecutive Offender (uhhh, Officer), BDC28. I'm sure you will agree, BDC, that Little BIll will make an excellent addition to the CEBC. The lack of meaning and lucidity in his many postings makes him my top choice for our newest CEBC member, and I am backing him with my fullest endorsement.

Little Bill, below are the rules for membership. I don't believe there will be any problem with your application, but do note that after being appointed as a member in good standing, any breech of this contract will be cause for immediate dismissal from the club.


Quote
Membership in the CEBC requires the following:

1) Must be at least 18 years of age
2) Must be unmarried and at least somewhat sexually deprived (which lends itself to the lunacy we exhibit on an hourly basis)
3) Must worship Clint Eastwood (our god) and his workings
4) Must pay annual dues to our treasurer, Gino M (failure to do so will result in broken limbs or a swim in the East River)
5) Must treat all bachelorette members with dignity and respect (failure to do so will result in automatic expulsion from the club and thinly veiled hostility from the Vice President)
6) Must have an active imagination and sense of humor

Good luck with the rest of your initiation process, Little Bill.

Over to you, BDC....

Matt, VP CEBC

This thread is sort of like an episode of Seinfeld... it's about nothing, just whatever we feel like putting into cyberspace. BDC started it, saying he hoped it would be the longest thread ever, and of course, it should be completely pointless at all times. We're doing our best to keep this thread going, and while it's nowhere near the longest thread ever (our trivia games are probably the longest threads on the board) it has, at least, been going for nearly a year now! That's an achievement, at least.

So, feel free to add your nothingness thoughts, and whatever you feel like adding here. Stay tuned for the next meeting of the CEBC. (http://home.swfla.rr.com/mattreigns/instantcool.gif)

It seems that over the past few days I've been paying a lot of attention to this web board. However, I still have classes, and this weekend I have a rather big homework assignment to do, soo... I'm going to try to get that stuff done first before spending a bunch of time here at this site. It's addictive! (http://home.swfla.rr.com/mattreigns/instanteek.gif)  I can't wait for this semester to be over; I have about 3 weeks left, then I'll work, but I will be able to blow some time here with some interesting conversation I'm sure (http://home.swfla.rr.com/mattreigns/instantsmile.gif)  Anyway, this all seems pointless enough. I'm sure everyone cares about my life, school and all that jazz.

Matt,

I have taken Little Bill's application and sent for approval. Now it just has to be given approval by the CEBC board (KC and her sunshine band, NBC, Gino-whereever he is, and GMAT). I have approved funds for Little Bill to start a DEVELOPMENT division of the CEBC. His responsibilities will include developing a business plan for the next fiscal(?) year of the CEBC. Will the CEBC follow it? Not likely. But ya gotta admit, the way that Little Bill sometimes has no cohesiveness to his threads....his business plan oughta be a REAL HOOT!!! (http://home.swfla.rr.com/mattreigns/instantsmile.gif)

Matt, on a side note, I have taken into account the "memo" you sent me requesting additional funds with the exposing pictures you have of me, NBC, and the playdough. As you requested, the additional monies will be left in the clandestine location at the right time. I cant believe I am being extorted.

Christopher, we would gladly approve you for the CEBC, but common sense thinking like "I have to keep this web board in perspective with my classes" is not going to bring the CEBC anywhere but up, and I cant have that.

You see Christopher, the CEBC was just started with nothing more than a dream....a dream of a madman psychotic on ecstasy and LSD....which has grown into fruition into what it is today....which would be....wait...still thinking...

Hmmmmm....

I never knew I was a member of the CEBC board. I always thought I was bdc’s personal sex--, I mean, secretary. I attend to alllll of his needs. You know, like getting him a half rack from Ed’s hotel and BBQ shack where the slogan is “Shack up at the shack. It’s finger lickin’ good!” (Eeew, images of Fat Bastard in bed, naked and surrounded by greasy food comes to mind, unfortunately.)

Anyway, I think we should let both Little Bill and Christopher in the club because we’d get a better discount at Ed’s. Plus combining Bill’s nonsensical rantings with Chris’s common sense reasoning may result…well actually, that may result in a gigantic explosion destroying all life on earth. I say we risk it and let ‘em in.

If you’re wondering about the playdough pics---so am I.

I took the time to read through this whole thread earlier after I made my last post here. I was at school, so it was hard not to laugh out loud in the library. I was afraid people would look at me strange if I laughed sitting in front of a computer screen.  (http://home.swfla.rr.com/mattreigns/instantbiggrin.gif)  Regardless to say, I think I meet the criteria for the CEBC. I'm single, in fact, I've had terrible luck with girls. You see, there was this one girl who I fell for, in fact I took her to the prom last year (my senior year), needless to say, I haven't spoken to her in a very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, veryvery, very very very,,, long time. I spent a lot of confused time (I should be able to fit in, heh?) Anyways, she drove me nuts. She definately drove me nuts in her prom dress. She looked as if she was about to pop out. (http://home.swfla.rr.com/mattreigns/instantbiggrin.gif)  You see, she had this low, low, low, cut dress and she has really big... Sorry bout that, I won't go off into that tangent. Needless to say, I NEED to be in the CEBC. Thank you all!

*whispering to NBC* NBC, you do look lovely in those pictures. For our date on Friday night, I took the liberty of purchasing several hundred containers of green Playdough (I like green). Just . . . keep this our little secret, I wouldn't want BDC to find out about it and withhold the extortion money, I'm really hoping to buy that 24 kt. gold Bonanza 43rd Anniversary Special Edition Watch, and I need the cash. And if KC finds out.... well, Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned, but man... if that woman is KC, (http://home.swfla.rr.com/mattreigns/instanteek.gif) I can't even think ... it's too awful.

Now.... onto CEBC business. It seems we have two Plebs, Christopher and Little Bill. I think we need to run them through initiation... "Hell Week" CEBC style. Stay tuned for further details. (fun fun fun)

BDC, "KC and her Sunshine Band"... *cracking up* I think we just found a new theme for the club:

It's been a few days since I've made a post here at "the endless, pointless thread." So I wanted to drop by with, really... nothing to say.

As President of the CEBC, usually at this point (well, actually we havent had a THIS point yet...so bear with my bulls***), I would be happy to promote these members into the CEBC. Their great knowledge of Eastwood is ONLY overshadowed by their lack of lives...and as you know, those are both prerequisites to be thriving members (thats THRIVING KC, DONT BE LEWD) of the CEBC.

But, I have had a closed door/ secretly held meeting between myself and one of my closest comrades in arms...a man that I consider second to NO ONE BUT ME. A man that shares my spirit in the CEBC...the closest person I have known, and that I call friend....

*snap snap*...damnit whats his NAME?????

OH YEAH!!! I spoke with Matt. We have decided to EXTEND HELL WEEK until which time the VP of the CEBC deems it to be discontinued.

In other words, grease up guys (http://home.swfla.rr.com/mattreigns/instantsmile.gif) Matts about to go DELIVERANCE on ya  (http://home.swfla.rr.com/mattreigns/instantwink.gif)

Seriously, I feel like a dunce next to these guys. I dont know JACK about Clint (or Clint about Jack). I just have the least of a life.

To quote a great Newman flick, what we have here is, failure to communicate.

You see, the endless pointless thread is more than just an endless pointless thread. It is more than the tribal like rantings of the lunatics of this board. It represents a strong bond between the fans of Clint Eastwood, and how crazy a lunatic you have to be to BE a Clint Eastwood fan.

But you, AKA23, have betrayed the trust of this thread, and this board, along with in conjucture of and in complete triplicate to, the members of the CEBC.

In asking that question, you had a cohesive, intelligent thought. As you my know by following the rants of myself, Matt, NBC, KC (do a little dance, make a little love), we do not promote high falootin(sp) thoughts or any such nonsense. We promote a DIFFERENT KIND of nonsense.

But, as your little "coup" almost succeeded, I will have to get this board back underway with another contest.

WHO CAN TYPE THE MOST LIKE GUNNY CONTEST!!!! The secret prize will be awarded by VP of the CEBC Matt. If you arent aware of Gunny, please scroll thru this string, you will find plenty of posts by him. Let me create an example posting, and everyone else just follow suit.....

...."MONKEY SHEARS!!!" KC, we should really tie up those twigs and make them water based apple pie huh? To quote Pacino "Operator please". I didnt know about the machine man or the candy man."

Let the mad ravings begin.

The endless pointless thread RIDES again!!!! YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAhoo.

Monkey shears?

Are those shears belonging to a monkey or shears made by a monkey? Monkeys are clever animals but certainly not that clever. Though they do use tools. But really, have you ever seen a monkey use a pair of scissors? Perhaps if it did, it could make it's own clothes. Poor monkeys, going around naked all the time.

I wish i were naked all the time.

And what's the matter with running with scissors? Now, FALLING with scissors and having the scissors stab you in the eye--that's a problem.

Don't fall on scissors, especially if you're naked. and a monkey.

Hey guys, long time no see! I admit I didn't mean to leave it this long...I can't even remember how long it's been! That's what happens when you're stuck in a boooring job and every day seems the same as the last. Anyway, the good news is that I'm going to Iceland in 3 weeks, hurrah! I've wanted to go there for so long. It's quite expensive but worth it. I'll be there for 4 nights, 5 days. Can't tell you how excited I am! Apart from that I haven't been doing much - doing lots of reading for the MA in Humanities I'll be starting in September, & last week I saw Austin Powers in Goldmember - thought it was really funny but not as good as the other two. I watched a really cool film last night, Stanley Kubrick's Paths of Glory, starring Kirk Douglas. A really great film, based on true events. I don't know why sometimes people are put off seeing black&white films, but often they're the best. They don't make films now like they used to!

Anyway, just thought I would drop in and write something for a change. I always end up avoiding the more complicated threads because I never know what to say as I'm not as knowledgeable on Clint as the majority of you are. If I had more time I'd sit down and re-watch all the films, and if I had more time to come on here, then I'd contribute more too. Oh well. At least you know I haven't shifted off this mortal coil...

Hi Ally!

Just seeing your name listed among the "Clint Eastwood Web Board Recent Visitors" gave me a smile, you've definitely been away too long this time. I always enjoy reading your posts in any of the threads, complicated or uncomplicated, you've always got something good to add.

I used to know someone from Iceland who couldn't stop raving about how beautiful it was... but then she moved to Florida, which would be another really great vacation destination for you someday.  (http://home.swfla.rr.com/mattreigns/instantwink.gif)

P.S. I still haven't seen Amelie, but it's been released on DVD now, so I'll be renting it soon. As highly as you recommended it, I'm sure it's a good one.

They certainly don't make a lot of movies like Paths of Glory nowadays. That movie was even made before it was considered "in" to make anti-war movies. That's a truly great movie! (http://home.swfla.rr.com/mattreigns/instantsmile.gif)

An exellent movie Christopher. Especially if your a Kurt Douglas fan and enjoy ww1 movies.
The quality of film production is very good. It also gives you an idea of what it was like in the trenches. Being an anti-war film it demonstrates the mindless ordering of charges into machine gun fire of which Kirk's character refuses to do.
Some other good WW1 movies:

Road to Glory
All Quiet on the Western Front

Now, 3/4 of the way into the summer, I start looking foward to going back to school (which is alright, since after going to school for a while, I start looking forward to my summers again.

My main hobbies when I'm not being stressed out about upcoming homework assignments are: watching girls, watching movies, and watching girls and watching movies.

I am reminded of something a guy said that I went to high school with, "I'm going to be an F.B.I. (Female Body Inspector)." He was quite a funny guy. I'll always remember him. Or perhaps we will end up working together one of these days, since my major happens to be just that.  (http://home.swfla.rr.com/mattreigns/instantwink.gif)

Christopher,

You mean we HAVENT made you a member of the CEBC YET??? MY GOD, what have we done? What have.....we....done? *sits down on floor with head in hands*.

Myself, being the President, truly apologizes. In truth Christopher, the CEBC has been plagued with inner turmoil as of late. There has been an uprising of masses demanding that we use the dues to buy dates for our members, male and female alike. Now I myself am completely against paying for sex *winces and looks up to see if lightning strikes*.....okay, I myself am completely against it *giggle*, but it has been chaired.

Power is changing hands in the CEBC Christopher. Between Matt becoming a moderator, and my constant alcoholic binges, many have called upon me to step down as President of the CEBC. The problem is I have been too drunk to notice it.

Matt and I will make it our highest priority to get you into the CEBC, post sooth (post with? Post cereal?)...anyway, as fast as possible.

ALLYGIRL!!!!!!!!! WHERE HAVE YA BEEN WOMAN!!!! Send a brother a email once in awhile ([email protected]). OH, anyone else please feel free to email me with any kind of craziness, as craziness is like water to my kind. Wait...Im having a dramatic pause.

The CEBC's announcement of two new members (dont go being a perv with that statement KC and NBC). You gotta say that to women...all they think about is sex.

First would be Little Bill. Little Bill as of late has been contributing....has been contributing to the CEBC...hang on..*fumbles thru notes*...thats it? Thats all?....Ah well what the heck. *clears throat*. Little Bill has been contributing lunacy, which qualifies him for his free CEBC lunacy card, good for any Strip joint for one drink, and gets you half price off any good laxative. Congrats Little Bill!! Welcome to the CEBC, and enjoy the extra time on the throne!!!

Last, but certainly not least, would be Christopher. Christopher has something that the CEBC has been lacking, a WORK ethic. Although Matt has been working hard as VP, his moderator responsibilities (notice how I always give you a promo Matt? IM SO PROUD OF YOU SON!!) has split his time. Christopher, as he did find many of the items during his hell week trial, showed a great talent at sifting thru BORING stuff to put just the right touch on a difficult project, which has earned the CEBC's respect, and total awe. Christopher will be sent into upper management training for his official title "Guy to get the dohickeys done right". Congrats Christopher.

Both, unknowingly, get a free car of their choice, and dates with either KC or NBC. As neither KC or NBC are aware of this arrangement, I will supply the alcohol.

Welcome NEW MEMBERS!!!! (again, STOP BEING PERVS!!)

THE ENDLESS POINTLESS THREAD DOES A LITTLE DANCE, MAKES A LITTLE LOVE, GETS DOWN TONITE!!!

(ps...thanks for the brilliant comment Chris (http://home.swfla.rr.com/mattreigns/instantwink.gif) )

I figured that comment would be the icing on the cake. (http://home.swfla.rr.com/mattreigns/instantwink.gif)

And, unless Little Bill shows up to claim his share of the prizes, I'll take his car and his date. (http://home.swfla.rr.com/mattreigns/instantbiggrin.gif)

*cracking up*

IVE BEEN PLAYED!!!!!!

Genius like this may mark the new era in the CEBC. Christopher may just be the new president. Actually, Matt would probably run for that after Gino has me assassinated. Honestly as much as I drink, that wouldnt be too difficult.

I shouldve made Gunny a member as well. That wouldve been the most interesting acceptance speech ever.

Christopher, as you and Bill are the first ever "inductees"...you DO know you have to do an acceptance speech, correct? Make it good, remember...it marks your future. Do some more butt kissing like that and KC/NBC wont kick so hard when you throw them into the car on your abduction...I mean date.

I suppose I'll start working on my speech.

But now I'd like to get something off my chest. Yesterday, before I knew I'd be accepted in the CEBC, I decided to come clean with everyone and finally post a picture of myself in my profile (I would hate for KC or NBC (or maybe even both) to be surprised when I shoved... uh, I mean, showed them to my new car and this would be the first time they would ever see me in person).

Wow, Christopher... if that's what you look like, I'd PAY to peek in on you and KC (and/or NBC) on your date. Got a spare seat in the trunk for me?

BDC, you're right... moderator duties have been keeping me very busy. Sorry I haven't been able to check in with the CEBC since my promotion. KC, unsure of my adequacy for the moderator's position, has been testing me privately on Eastwood trivia till all hours of the night. She was kind enough to unbind my wrists so I could check in here, but I see she's getting impatient and wants to get back to my ..... training. I've only got another minute.... OUCH! (Damn she's good with that whip.) I'll be right with you... My Lady.... just... OUCH!

All right, all right!

bdc, I move that we plan Little Bill and Christopher's CEBC Induction Ceremony to coincide with the arrival of this web board's 1500th member. We'd better start planning now! I'll rent out Ed's Barbeque Shack for the night (okay, so we don't have the funds for that... I'll reserve us a few tables in the back), KC can get the sheets for the lovefest (due to lack of funds, we can take turns in the abandoned VW van in Ed's parking lot) and baggieb can bring along her distressed, mirrored ball so we can dance under the parking lot lights to our CEBC Theme Song....

DO A LITTLE DANCE, MAKE A LITTLE LOVE, GET DOWN TONIGHT. GET DOWN TONIGHT.

I second that party note Matt, I think its official.

Master of ceremonies, will be Gunny. We will let him make his wonderful speeches.

Christopher, you will have to write an acceptance speech. Be careful with punctuation, remember, KC will be grading you.

I believe another love fest will be in order for this party as well. We all have fond memories (if not, Matt has photos) of the last lovefest. KC, I never did get to ask you how you did that with the duck and the jumper cables....oh well. Some laws of nature can be broken I guess.

ANYWAYS, LIL Bill will also have to write an acceptance speech. Gino is our resident interpreter for both Lil Bill and Gunny for those who dont follow the board often enough to have a rhythm.

WHO'S BRINGING THE ALCOHOL AND CHAPS I WONDER???

AWWWW DO A LITTLE DANCE...MAKE A LITTLE LOVE....GET DOWN TONITE!!!

As a new member of the CEBC (and a "high fallotin educated folk" (http://home.swfla.rr.com/mattreigns/instantbiggrin.gif) ), I feel as if we have accomplished something, like a real hero, as Lightfoot would probably put it. But I don't see as to why my acceptance speech has to be awesome. I'm perfectly capable of dumbing it down a little for you all, seeing as how I'm a complete genius.

ACCEPTANCE SPEECH TIME!

I had been trying to get into the CEBC since I started posting here on a regular basis, which, if I remember right, was back in April (obviously, I became a member in Feb. You can go back a few pages and find out if you'd like). During these last months, I have learned many things, several which were taught to me by KC. I might also add here, that it was only by reading through "The ENDLESS, POINTLESS thread" that I realized KC was not a man. (http://home.swfla.rr.com/mattreigns/instantmad.gif)  Sorry, KC. On occasions, she has sent me to a dictionary to look up such words as "verbose," and most recently, "verbatim" (see her above post). In other threads, she has explained what "OS" stands for, and precisely what a browser is. And if this isn't enough to get me a turn with her in the VW van, nothing is. (http://home.swfla.rr.com/mattreigns/instantwink.gif) I'm horrible at memorizing things most of the time so I don't stand a chance at memorizing the "Unforgiven" script word for word (the definition of verbatim (http://home.swfla.rr.com/mattreigns/instantwink.gif) (http://home.swfla.rr.com/mattreigns/instantbiggrin.gif) )).

I'm afraid I have no place else to take this acceptance speech to. Thank you bcd, Matt, and the rest of the board for allowing me into this distinguished club.

(http://a284.g.akamai.net/f/284/987/12h/lygo.com/ly/wg/e/c/el.jpg)
 
Thank you, Thank you very much!

(I should also note, that I have known that KC was not a man for a long time now. That was just back when I was new around here. So please, no angry letters.)

The non-streak formula gently cleans, rinses thoroughly and leaves no spots. Doesn't your heap of sh!t deserve Turtle Wax?

You'll also receive a $50 gift certificate from Sex Toys R Us. Whatever your sick, perverted pleasures are, you'll find everything you need to fulfill them at Sex Toys R Us, proud to be a sponsor of the CEBC. And finally, a pack of Wrigley's Doublemint Gum!

I know, it was meant to be a joke, albeit a pretty weak one. I am a Yankees fan myself. We got the game from Yankee Stadium here live, the one where Derek Jeter was given out on a strike that was at least six inches off the plate. We get regular season ball games twice a week and the whole world series live. The games start around one in the morning our time so I've been taping most of them and watching them the next day. I did however manage to stay with game six to the end.

I was mildly surprised that there hasn't been more of a debate on the board, knowing how many of you are ball fans. For instance, our commentators were a little critical of some of the 'baseballs greatest moments' presented before game four. I personally would have gone for Lou Gehrig's speech or Hank Aaron's home run, but what do I know? Is Barry Bonds that disliked by US ball fans that they would not vote for his 73 home run season out of spite?

endless and pointless would be two words i'd definitely associate with baseball or american cricket as we like to call it.
sorry its just to slow and theres not enough interaction between players, at least with american football you can get a beer when nothings happening and they get back to the action pretty soon. (http://home.swfla.rr.com/mattreigns/instantwink.gif)

cheesecake has cheese in it.

1 1/4 c Graham cracker crumbs
1/4 c Sugar
1/3 c Butter or margarine --
Melted
1 cn Sweetened condensed milk
3 lg Eggs
1/4 c Lemon juice
8 oz Sour cream -- room
Temperature
2 8oz cream CHEESE-softened

Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Combine crumbs, sugar and margarine; Press firmly on bottom of 9-inch spring form pan. In large mixer bowl, beat cheese until fluffy. Gradually beat in sweetened condensed milk until smooth. Add eggs and lemon juice; mix well. Pour into prepared pan. Bake 50 to 55 minutes or until center is set; top with sour cream. Bake 5 minutes longer. Cool. Chill. Just before serving, remove side of springform pan. Top with strawberries or whatever.

I have this ongoing discussion with my best friend: Considering all types of cheese, What CAN'T you put cheese on?

cheese ice cream--common flavor in the philippines. personally never had it, but my parents say it's good. and strawberry cheesecake flavored ice cream is made by lots of brands.

Only thing is I have the Jell-O no bake brand of cheesecake where you throw the stuff together and put it in the refrigerator for an hour and then... Wal-la! CHEESECAKE!!!
It comes with some pouch with strawberry sauce in it, but as I said before, I don't use it. Ma likes to put it on sometimes, though.

Okay guys but cream cheese isn't really cheese is it? Cream cheese is the only type of cheese that I actually will eat...I mean most other kinds of cheese I just don't like..it's not in the same family as all the other types of cheese..I think it's a bit of a misnomer to consider it a typical "cheese."

I have had strawberry cheesecake ice cream and that is pretty good

<bang><bang><bang> This meeting of the CEBC will now come to order.

Good evening, CEBC bachelors and bachelorettes. It has come to my attention that our President, bdc28, has proposed the addition of our first married member to the CEBC. According to our Bylaws, which are as follows:


Quote
Membership in the CEBC requires the following:

1) Must be at least 18 years of age
2) Must be unmarried and at least somewhat sexually deprived (which lends itself to the lunacy we exhibit on an hourly basis)
3) Must worship Clint Eastwood (our god) and his workings
4) Must pay annual dues to our treasurer, Gino M (failure to do so will result in broken limbs or a swim in the East River)
5) Must treat all bachelorette members with dignity and respect (failure to do so will result in automatic expulsion from the club and thinly veiled hostility from the Vice President)
6) Must have an active imagination and sense of humor

the only rule preventing marrieds from admittance to the CEBC is Rule 2.

I propose a simple one word addition to that rule, which would then read as follows:


2) Must be unmarried and/OR at least somewhat sexually deprived (which lends itself to the lunacy we exhibit on an hourly basis)

I think Agent has proven the hourly exhibition of lunacy. If he doesn't get a whole lot of sex... (which would make the rest of us feel as pitiful as we are) then I see no reason why we can't adjust our Bylaws and give Agent R membership to our highly esteemed club.
All in favor, say "aye".

Sorry, Nightwing. You don't meet the qualifications for CEBC membership due to a breach of Rule 3...

3) Must worship Clint Eastwood (our god) and his workings

Time and time again, you have exhibited unrestrained contempt for a true Eastwood classic ... The Enforcer. If you'd like to be considered for membership, you must first rewatch it, then prepare a 300 word essay on what you like about the film. Post it in this thread, and then we'll be happy to consider you for membership.

Well I'm quite honored to be inducted into the CEBC (assuming there are no objections), although I don't quite meet all the requirements. As far as being sexually derprived, I may fit in that category.

I haven't been getting much noogie lately, and it can take a toll on a guy. Or, if she does get mushy, it's always while I'm in the middle of watching a classic Clint flick, and that ain't the time. She has forced me to resort to tush-pinching here at work, and if I ever end up getting in trouble for it, it's all her fault. Next thing you know it'll be butt-slapping, and I'll hold her responsible. How can she do this to me?

One question - am I required to pay full membership dues, since I'm not single?

All in favor, say "aye".

*stands up and clears throat*.

Let me say that I have truly believed, that lack of nookie is not just with the single. AU CONTRAIRE!!! I believe it is the married that have it worse. It is one thing to never have it, its is another form of torture.

Now, the nature of our very NAME, CE B C, Clint Eastwood Bachelor\ette club, would be contrary in its nature to take a married person. BUT, in light of the brilliant speech made by my vice president Matt, and in light of the new evidence presented by Perry Mason, I believe that we should at MINIMUM, make agent a HONORARY member, if not a full fledged member. Dont you love how the women on the board get all giggly when you say the word "member"?

So let me say the first "AYE". What say ye all my brothers and sisters of CEBC? CAN I GET ME AN AMEN??? WOO IM FEELING IT TONITE!!! CAN YA FEEL IT? *church organ in background begins*...LAWDY Im feeling it....WAAAAADE in the WAAATER....

Thank you for those kind words, bdc. Yes, I think being an "honorary" part-time member would work for me, being I have other duties to attend to from time to time.

Are we allowed to mingle with the "ette's" of the club?

Oh, my bad. They're commericals on the WB network that have the frog in them. They just crack me up. If you don't watch much of WB's shows, I understand. I don't watch a lot on there, I see the frog commercials most of the time while I'm watching "Everybody Loves Raymond," since it's now in syndication on the WB.

No, the spirit of the pointless thread will live on. We will all look back on days past, some of our favorite moments of lunacy..and remember the ENDLESSNESS OF THIS THREAD.

Others, will look on and remember me specifically, and know truly in their hearts..the POINTLESSNESS of this thread.

And still, will remember the fabric of this thread, and remember the THREAD OF THIS THREAD!!

Only KC, whose mind remembers all details, will remember the THE of THE ENDLESS POINTLESS THREAD.

See you all on the other side....ZOOOOOOM!!!!!!!!

Ahhhh, the first post of wackiness in the new home. Kinda cool.

Okay, I already thanked Matt. Now just let me say this. ISNT HE JUST THE COOLEST?!?

*voice of 50's style Native American in movie*.  "Matt, you makeum Chief Giggly Brain very proud. To thank you, me offer my first born daughter, squaw KC, as a wife. I know, she kickum full frontal groin kicks. But she good woman, know lots of stuff. She keepum lots of Eastwood knickknack. Me haveum son name Rising Knickknack."

I have to admit, its kinda weird typing the posts in this new format. I mean, the only colors I can choose are black and mocha, which as we all know, are the colors of the deep dark recesses of my mind.

There is a leprechaun, he wants a pencil. I dont think I will give him one. I dont have one to give.

First comes the shaking, then the darkness. I dont know which is worse. I smell peaches.

Anyways, its good to be back at the EPT (Endless Pointless Thread). I truly believe it was the thread that forced the move and need for more space. And with some more aimless input, Cal will have to move again ;)

See you guys soon.

THE ENDLESS POINTLESS THREAD RIDES ON!! HI HO SILVER!!! AWAY!!!!!

I've got something to get off my chest. I'll officially turn 20 years old tomorrow and the thought of it has me disturbed.

I mean, Where has my childhood gone? :(

I recently told a friend of mine that it was like we were halfway to middle-aged (he's a fellow 20 year old too). He didn't seem to like that idea. And I seem to remember from my psychology class I took last year that there is some sort of a "halfway to midlife crisis" that exists.

So I would like to offer my support for all of us here at the CEBC who are raging on ever so closely to our 20's or *gulp* mid-twenties.

So Conan, Ally, Little Bill, and our youngsters, Nightwing and AKA, and anybody else out there who may be suffering from this crisis, I'm there for ya.

Peace be with you all. :-*

20 seems like only yesterday,
its nearly 5 years ago!
yeah its a little depressing when you think like that
but think of it this way,
now your at the age where you're deemed responsible, your entering th eage where YOU buy your first car(not your folks) you get your first career job, you get your first non-student accomadation, i think my twenties have been a very exciting and i'm looking forward to the next half of em.
and half way to mid life is miles away from being old
take 80 as average life expectancy 80 - 20 = 60 you've at least three times what you've already used  left in you. and from now on you decide where the direction of your life lies, no more being told what to do or how to do it, next time it'll be advice , you can take it or leave it, you decide the path you follow. the adventures just begining :D

stamp on his peaches and he won't pee on any again ;)

To treat myself with a little leisure reading during my time off from school, I went by the library and got Clint Eastwood: A Biography.

Don't know if I've seen those. I'm surprised they're advertising being they probably won't be around much longer. My guess, anyway. K-Mart's really gone downhill in the last several years....horrible service, stores are usually a mess, cashiers look like female gorillas (with personalities to match). Almost as bad as Wal-Mart.... ;D

I'm not sure, the K-Mart where I live went out of buisness a long time ago. There's a big Kroger there now. And, not too long ago, we got one of those big Wal-Mart with the grocery store and everything.

Congrats on your Extraordinaire-ship, Nightwing!  ;)

Thank you KC.

I love this board.

Its like a second family too me. I love how we can all come together and just talk about things we like. I also like how we're here for each other. If someone has problems, we're here to help. If someone needs something answered, we're here to help.

And yeah, there may be fueds every now and then, but in the end, all is forgiven and we get back to normal.

Me and you, KC, we had some fueds, but all thats in the past now, what does it matter now? A new board, a new beginning.

Me and Daisy, heck we just fueded a few weeks ago. But alls good now.

I know I've been in toruble with some others, but alls forgiven.

Heck, without the fueds we wouldnt be a 'family'.

We fight, we poke fun, we enlighten, we teach and we just have fun.

I love this board, and everyone on it.

I believe it's coming up on my one year anniversary since I registered with this board. Of course, I didn't start posting on a regular basis at first, but still...

I can remember a few years ago, however, when I first came across this site. In fact, the first thing I did when my family decided to get the Internet a few years ago, was doing a search for Clint Eastwood. I don't believe that was when I first found this particular site. I'm not sure why I didn't come across this site at first, since it is the best Eastwood site on the web.

Anyway, I can remember getting an issue of Entertainment Weekly, which listed this site in it (Isn't that issue listed on the "Awards" page of this site?). So that was when I first came around here. I stumbled on the web board once and started reading a very interesting debate about which was better: Unforgiven, or The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly. Did that thread by any chance ever get saved, or is it gone for good? That was an interesting conversation. I may have looked at a few other thread, I forget now. But I never considered registering at that time.

I hadn't visited this site in quite some time when I got on here last year and signed the guessbook, asking about if there was any word on when Tightrope would be on DVD. Then, right after I typed that, I registered. Anyhow, I do remember getting an e-mail from AKA answering my Tightrope question.

So that's my story and I'm sticking to it. ;) ;D

I have realized, in my complete madness, that Matt and I have not called together a meeting of the minds...A CEBC online council meeting. THIS MUST BE DONE!!! Why you say? WHY??! WHO THE F*** KNOWS why I do what I do??? But it must be done!!!

 :D  I just read the whole thread too, and I found myself agreeing with almost everyone.    I find The Good, The Bad and The Ugly to be a masterpiece TOO, not just Unforgiven, and I love them both in different ways.  It's almost impossible to compare, and for me to judge... they're neck and neck to me.  But, lately... I've ENJOYED The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly more than Unforgiven, just because I think I've been in the mood for Leone lately.

Post by: Agent on February 11, 2003, 09:08:02 AM
Well, to show my loyalty to Leone, I actually had two copies of GBU! So there, Matt!  ;D

Actually what happened was, when my dear friend Santa sent me the 3-DVD set of the MWNN, I ended up having to sell my old copy of GBU on Ebay (believe me, I had no choice...it was to save my own hyde). Otherwise I would've had some serious explaining to do to the wiff: why I had 2 GBU's laying around. Believe you me that would NOT have been fun. It's bad enough I have to justify every new DVD (or anything for that matter) that comes in the mail (that gets discovered). Saturday morning I got b*tched out big time for a "limited edition" DVD that came in a tin box. I tried to explain to her that it was a collector's item (only 15,000 made), and would be worth dough some day. She just doesn't get it....
Title: Re: THE ENDLESS, POINTLESS thread
Post by: Christopher on February 11, 2003, 12:52:50 PM
I suppose this "limited edition" DVD must have cost a little in order to get that type of a reaction. Anyhow, I hope it's a good movie at least. ;)

Say, Agent, you'll have to let me know when you've got stuff on ebay, so I can take a look.
Title: Re: THE ENDLESS, POINTLESS thread
Post by: Agent on February 11, 2003, 01:19:33 PM
No, actually I got it for a steal. I believe the website (http://www.moviesunlimited.com) was in  error when they sold it for that price (about HALF of what everyone else was selling it for). Soon after I ordered it, I noticed they upped the price quite a bit. And yes, if I plan on selling any of my old Eastwood flicks or whatever, I'll let you know... :)

Wait a minute, let me get this straight. So, any attempt that I may make to try to inject something even remotely resembling a point here will be vigorously opposed, resented, and generally villified? Isn't that ridiculousness in it's purest form? Oh, no, by the very nature of SUGGESTING that a point should or could be injected, by even raising the possibility, by the mere mention of a point in this thread, I've rendered this post completely pointless. The mere thought of a point in the endless, pointless thread would be so twisted and crazy that it would invite more endless and pointless discussion. The suggestion itself is completely pointless, going against the entire spirit of the thread. So, EVEN this valiant effort belongs in this thread! Damn it! You can't blame a guy for trying ;)

I was starting to get a little concerned about this myself. Whenever I'm bored, I count on this thread. I count on this thread for confusion. So then, I'm no longer just bored, but rather confused as well.

AKA, in some strange way, I think I actually got what you were saying in your last post. I may be wrong, or just confused, but I think I might have actually gotten it.

This weather we're having is starting to drive me nuts. Nice one day, dreary, cool, and rainy the next.

I miss BDC (and that's no flum). I wish he could make it around here a little more often. You see, I like to have a place where I can ramble on and on about stuff. I don't often get a chance to do that nowadays. It's all that schoolin' I've been getting. I swear, I'm just gettin soooo smart and all, I fear I might be losing my ability to ramble about nothingness. My thinking skills are becoming so superior to that of my classmates. It's really something.

Is it starting to get a little deep in here? ;) ;D

I'm not a big Winnie the Pooh fan, myself, but some people used to call me Christopher Robin thinking that was some kind of good joke. I usually responded to them by saying, "How original!" ::)

You know I like Hitchcock. He's my favorite director. Overpraised? Not really, considering some looked down on him for doing television. His overall popularity makes some people look down on him. It's that unwritten rule that says what's popular cannot have artistic merit. He was quite an artist.

I meant by the arty critics Chris - you could hardly call him under-praised either!  Especially in Europe.

Artist - yup.  But sometimes too self-conciously so.  He was not a natural filmmaker like Ford.  But each to their own and this is hardly the place...

Start a Hitch thread, Chris!  Tell us what you like about him.

I think he is over praised, raised to the position of cult figure.  But I do think he was important and a great filmmaker.  Just not the greatest.

Tough luck getting the Christopher Robin tag, though.  My responce would have been more...  Obscene! ;)

What about the Tao of Pooh and the Te of Piglet eh? It's actually all deep stuff...a philosophy of life which is very simple yet makes a hell of a lot of sense. Anyway, which would you rather follow, the words of a fictional animated (as in alive!) teddy bear or the rhetoric of the untrustworthy world leaders/politicians etc? I know I'd rather trust a children's book. Not for public school types! I didn't go to public school. You don't have to be a toff. Just brought up on it. Though it was the horrible Disney-ified cartoon version rather than the original books, but I've rectified that in later life.

And Hitch is not overrated, he's just had a lot of stuff written on him, that's all. When you've made that many films and become so famous it's inevitable. There are few directors I like as much, and if there are, they don't have as comprehensive a work as Hitch does. He is certainly accomplished if you look at what he achieved in his long career. The range of films is amazing. Anyway I don't really like comparisons with other directors because they didn't make the same types of film as Hitch. Hitch was pretty unique.

More later, baaaaah!!!

*looks around with a devlish grin on his face*...

HE'S BAAAAAAAAAACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Just when the board was beginning to get some sanity to it. When things were beginning to become productive, a learning experience. Here he comes to f*** it all up again.

The prodigal son has returned.

Hi all. I wanted to say thanks to my buds (Matt, Amir, NW) for keeping in touch with me. Sorry I have been such a butthead as of late. To say the family has been plagued is an understatement.

But all that is in the past. Lets let the madness immerse us all. Breathe in the stench that is the craziness..let it engulf you. :)

GOD I have missed this place.

Love ya Matt ;)

Awwww, thank yee agent. Believe me, you have NO IDEA how I have missed you guys. It was the only sanity I really had, which should tell you the sad state of mind I have always been in ;)

Well, since everyone is going to ask, Im going to give the quick abbreviated version of the year thusfar.

January one, sister shot in the face in her car, passed.
Family seeked retribution in a "non legal" manner, which they eventually got. I have no idea how, and DONT WANNA KNOW.

Jan 15-Feb 28th, my father had five strokes, kicked out of six hospitals, became homeless, and was refused VA benefits. Eventually fell to the hands of myself and my brother having to kick DelMARVa into finding a home for him, since he could no longer care for himself.

Iraq, and I work for the Pentagon. Need I say more on that subject? LOL

My cousin died of drug overdose.

I am just tired. ;)

BUT, now that all of the madness has died down. What have I missed since I have been gone?

I do remember you Misty. The wrong reasons though. I always thought when I saw your posts "You know? I should have named my daughter Misty". Then I thought about how much trouble my daughter would have with a name like that.

Believe it or not, the drama of all that was alot more time consuming than anything else.

But I must re-christen the board with some of my madness...so let me go find some stupid stuff to post :)

Ditto to what Agent said, BDC.  Man, I knew you were having family problems, but never dreamed things were that bad.   :(

It's good to see you back here again, and to see that your sense of humor prevails. Welcome back, and know that we really missed you here.   The board just isn't the same without you.



Title: Re: THE ENDLESS, POINTLESS thread
Post by: KC on April 24, 2003, 06:15:49 PM
bdc, all I can say is "Amen" to what Agent and Matt said ... I'm glad you came back, and I hope you can find some peace of mind by hanging out around here.
Title: Re: THE ENDLESS, POINTLESS thread
Post by: AKA23 on April 24, 2003, 06:46:15 PM
WOW. BDC, it's SOOOO great to have you back. Really, the board IS NOT the same without you. After all, we all get far too sane around here without you to screw everything up for us all of the time. We need some kind of counter balance on this board to just say absolutely insane things in order to keep us grounded. Without you, WHERE'S the insanity?!!!! We really do need you man.

On a more sobering note, please allow me to express my sincere condolences for everything that has happened recently with your family. I couldn't even imagine having to go through some of that stuff, and yet you seem to have come through and are back to being your crazy self. As you continue to deal with the aftermath of all of these things, don't forget about me, and don't forget about all your other friends on the board. Keep in touch man :) GLAAAAAAAD to have ya back.

Daisy, let's go!  I can meet you at the Miami Airport!   Check out this list of activities (from Xichado's link above):

Quote
Special NUDE WEEK activities and theme nights will be featured as part of the NUDE WEEK package and may include Caesar's Rampage/Toga night, a special "castaway" night ala Tom Hanks' movie, Karaoke night, PJ night, body painting plus lots more fun themes and games.

I think I've still got a toga around here somewhere, but really...  Karaoke in the nude!  That's gotta be the highlight of the week right there!  ;D  :-\


Oh darn, looks like we missed the flight, it left yesterday.   There's always next time!  :D

To know that Daisy in contemplating nude air travel is heartening. There will be some major advantages.

ONE: Men will CONSTANTLY ask you if you need anything.
TWO: NO ONE will feel the need to "see your goods" or check for you smuggling anything on the plane. If anyone DOES decide to check you, I want pictures.
THREE: I will DEFINITELY fly down to Miami to greet you there.
FOUR: Two words, "snack bar".

Here it is. Here is my 1000th post. (http://smilies.crowd9.com/otn/party/party.gif)

I will take this time to reflect.

My first post, going back to the old board in old July 2001, was entitled "My First Post, go easy please", what alot of thought I put into that title.

I remember the nice, warm welcome I got from everyone, and how happy I was to be a part of something so nice, where I could actually talk other people about Clint and have them care!!

I also remember I had forgoten that I posted that message weeks later and didnt stop by the board until many months had gone by. It wasnt then, until I started posted regurlarly. Like most newbies, I didnt have much to say, so I sat back and enjoyed the ride.

Then I got into the thick of things. I was always tempted to play in the Trivia Games but never really got the hang of them, so I stayed away.

If theres one thing that I can remember from the old board, its Matts 'Eastwood Film Survivor'. Man was that fun. I remember trying so hard to get The Enforcer knocked off, and after awhile I started getting a small militia to go with me and vote for it.

Good times.

I know I've said this before, but all you people here like family. We share thoughts and opinions, and sometimes we even disagree and arguements happen, and sometimes namecalling, but in the end isnt that what family is?

Anyway, heres to everyone here and everyone I've come to know and appreciate. Cheers!! (http://techhelpers.net/e4u/drink/trink39.gif)

In a few more months we can do Eastwood Film Survivor again... since our membership is constantly changing, the results will have to be different.  But  until then... let's not forget:  JOSEY WALES IS THE SOLE SURVIVOR!!!!

I remember that thread. It did take you a while before you started posting on a regular basis. I became a member in Feb. 2002, and didn't start posting on a regular basis until April (Two whole freakin months :o).

Your family comment above made me laugh. On the board, this is probably more like a family than most of my family is like a family (that's my extended family I'm referring to). ;)

Aw, I suppose we're always have those fond memories from the old board (such as having two college threads closed down :D).

Quote
cheese'cake'', n. cake made with cheese.

cheese'burg''er, n. hamburger cooked with cheese.
That last one is included just for good measure. Of course, in the dictionary, cheeseburger comes before cheesecake. But I found these to be quite humorous.

I read the old board thread about Poutine to understand at least a little  ;D
  There it says you have to pronounce it a bit french... when I do this, well, it gives a nasty word for the oldest profession in the world... Is that the correct way to pronounce it?? Did the quebecois name this food? Anyway, I wish Bon appetit!  ;)

I'm going to go out on a limb here and say it's PDS :)

Seriously, it could be a number of things. Many members may join because they genuinely like Clint Eastwood, are familiar with a handful of his films, and want to comment on those movies when they surface in the forums. Over 40 films makes for quite a substantial body of work, and I suspect only the diehards are going to be able to consistently post knowledgeably across the board.

Others may simply not have the time to do anything more than check in occasionally, and maybe post on something that catches their eye from time to time.

Me, I regret missing the last GBU 15 questions game - I was waiting to see if it was going to reference the restored version (which I hadn't seen) or not, and by the time I caught up with that info, the game was half-over.

What's the etiquette on that anyway? When is too late to join in? Any other hard fast rules I should know about, maybe a thread I should read? A food I should eat  ???

Matt, how about a Pittsburgh cheesesteak? I lived in the Pitt briefly circa 1990 and there was a little dive in a little dirt mall a block away from my Northside apartment that would sell you a 10" cheesesteak with extra provolone and onions (mmm...) for like 3 dollars and some change.

I've never been to Philly for the authentic, but damn that was the best cheesesteak sandwich I've ever had.  :)

We need our CEBC President here to issue out punishments when things get a little out of hand here at the Endless Pointless thread.

I too hope bdc makes it around here once again. It's been a while since we've had a CEBC meeting, and this is certainly a time which calls for it.

Speaking of missing CEBC members, there's also Agent's absence. And isn't he an honorary member here?

Oh well, I guess I'll go drown my sorrows with a Kraft cheese dinner. Thanks, Nightwing. ;)

Hum! The last we heard about Lilly she was in Carmel, then she “disappeared”. Now Agent, who was also in Carmel a few weeks before Lilly, also went MIA.

BE AWARE, BE VERY AWARE. I think aliens are kidnapping the members of this board that visit Carmel.

Conspiracy Theory: the aliens snatched Agent during his visit of Carmel, but after implanting a device on his head they allowed Agent to go back home. After all, they are just studying the mind of a Clint Eastwood fan.

In the meantime, Lilly arrives into town, starts “cruising” around Carmel blasting “Misty” and “The First Time I Ever Saw Your Face” on the car stereo. Definitely, a CE fan and she’s cute… so I heard  ::) :-X. The aliens fall head over heels – I don’t know if it’s appropriate to say so, after all I don’t know if these aliens have heads… or heels for that matter  ;)- with Lilly and made her the main subject of their study.

Back to Agent, due to a malfunction on the device that was implanted in him, Agent (now back home) started placing high bids on Clint Eastwood’s poster on Ebay,

The aliens realized the device was transmitting a huge amount of erratic information and decided to snatch Agent back, to replace the device and for further studies.

(Well, maybe Agent’s wife found out about his high bidding in Ebay and canceled his internet account… nah! I like the theory about the aliens better  ;D ;D).

We haven’t seen Lilly or Agent in a long while, so…

BE AFRAID, BE VERY AFRAIDyou might be next.

And who can we call? –scratch my head, while thinking, ‘cause I don’t want to call the Ghostbusters-


OH! YEAH!










CLIIIIIIIIIIIIIIINT!

Awww, this is all very interesting, but it's a very flawed and illogical view, and I CAN PROVE IT! Well, I was actually in the Carmel area in April, and I wasn't abducted by any aliens, so this has to be flawed. I mean, if all Clint Eastwood fans are abducted by these aliens, why was I spared? We even drove into the Mission Ranch area and asked about Clint, but he wasn't there, and they didn't have a clue when he'd be back. HEHE..they did say they say him a few times a year, but never had any idea when he'd show up. So, I was in the Carmel area, even walking around the town, going into shops, and no aliens! Sorry buddy, but this argument fails based on the introduction of new and incontrovertible evidence.

*The sound of a gavel banging on the table*


Hello true believers. As my sober (we think) VP Matt has pointed out, it is WAAAAAAY past due for a meeting of the CEBC. We need to have one in the real time though.

Matt, we need a new format of communication in the realtime. My question to the board, their forum folks, and everyone involved, is...

What do you think of having realtime chat on this board? Its not as expensive to setup a chatroom these days, and it would make for some interesting discussions in the real time.

Oh, ye of little faith, do not think we are NOT going to be having a CEBC chapter meeting, because we ARE. I think we should propose to Cal though about having it in real time.

Now, un much less serious notes. I was talking to the mole on my arm the other day...he said to me..wait...you are all looking at me funny. What?

I also still believe we need to have the REAL O.R.G.I.E meeting. Matthew had mentioned NY, I had mentioned Silver Spring (as we have the new AFI theatre here, and I am sure I could make a call if we were serious). Primarily this is because I would like to get Daisy, KC, and NBC in the same room. Preferably in white t-shirts..where they would battle it out in a pit of mud for the rights to be new head moderator on the board. This could be the first "scat" movie of CEBC...if Matt tapes it right, we get the CORRECT terrible scat movie music, and we use Gino's mafia connections to distribute.

Well, a man can have a dream.

Christopher, my young prodigy. The man that looks up to me...he constantly pays homage to me..well either that or he is trying to kill me. I admit, the first time he drained my brake fluid out, I thought he was just testing my reflexes to see if I had the gumption to stay CEBC president....but after I found the cobra in my underwear drawer...I started wondering...well, mostly WHY he was in my underwear drawer.

WE ARE NOT WORTHY!  WE ARE NOT WORTHY!  WE ARE NOT WORTHY!

As for CEBC business, BDC, I move that we make Xichado a full CEBC member, his post a page back proves he has the right stuff.

It's been a while since we've had an update on Conan's lovelife... we should add that to our meeting agenda.

Finally, it's time to consider Nightwing for membership into the CEBC.  He's rewatched The Enforcer and has posted an essay about why he likes it, but it fell short about 235 words of the 250 minimum I asked for.  Still...  we're anything but perfectionists in the CEBC.   ;D

The Endless, Pointless thread continues... much better for having its fearless leader back!

  I'm in a slump...on and off dating one girl who is pretty cool, but we both agree that it won't become serious.  On the bright side, my luck usually gets better as the summer progresses.
  I keep in touch with a girl that I met a few trips ago in Manila.  I've met alot of people overseas during my travels, and she was the only one that I really had a truly wonderful time with.  We talk about once a week on the phone; its been progressing slowly.  She speaks four languages fluently  :o

  I vote Nightwing gets in the CEBC.

  Good to see you posting BDC, haven't seen you around in a while.

*papers shuffling*...Nightwing..hmmm where is his file...Nightstalker...Nightlife...Nightrider...dang that is misspelled...AHHH here it is...Nightwing.

AHA, I see here is where the problem lies. Its in his handle. I remember there was an old rule to the CEBC that said you had to hold Quick Draw McGraw\El Kabong as the highest form of hero. And of course since Nightwing, by his name, holds Batman as the highest form...he was put in interim membership. Who am I to change these rules? THE PRESIDENT I AM!!!!

Nightwing, as your lovelife has been as tragic as ours...as well as funny. I endorse your membership into the CEBC. Now, understand, by having my stamp of approval, you do have a flummary quota you, as well as all other members of the CEBC have to have, as is stated in the handbook. I will copy and paste..

"...herein the CEBC member, does agree that two out every five posts, must be whimsical, witty, funny, non meaningful, or just downright stupid."

Also, there is a serious clause about KC and her sunshine band. She doesnt like it too much, but its good for reading.

So I say welcome Nightwing, welcome to the CEBC, and may God have mercy on your soul.

CONAN, you barbarian!!! What say you? Where ya been? I read up on your lovelife situation...good job!!! You should be a member for a long time standing (God the horror...the horror). Hey, if you are lucky, you, Matt and I could get a video camera, go on vacation, and pretend like we are taping a "GIRLS GONE WILD" video!!

Matt, ORGIE plans? (Both the meeting and the aforementioned statement)

I can't tell you how much I would love for all of us to meet up at a convention. I know I mentioned this before and also this is the endless, pointless thread, so I'm actually off-topic (for a change), but it hasn't been mentioned for a while. Thing is, I guess it would have to be in America, so, seeing as I'm broke for the forseeable future, I wouldn't be able to come. Well maybe the UK members could have their own. Only, let's have it more centrally, because I hate having to go down to London for everything all the time (lazy sod!)

Well, as Xichado has Matts sponsorship, and you have mine, I have to print the rules and regulations drafted by Matt, and engraved in history. The guidelines of the C.E.B.C (that is the correct spelling, no matter how many ways Lil Bill finds to retype it..its NOT the CNBC)Membership in the CEBC requires the following:

1) Must be at least 18 years of age
2) Must be unmarried and at least somewhat sexually deprived (which lends itself to the lunacy we exhibit on an hourly basis)
3) Must worship Clint Eastwood (our god) and his workings
4) Must pay annual dues to our treasurer, Gino M (failure to do so will result in broken limbs or a swim in the East River)
5) Must treat all bachelorette members with dignity and respect (failure to do so will result in automatic expulsion from the club and thinly veiled hostility from the Vice President)
6) Must have an active imagination and sense of humor


We have no real bi-laws, because to do so would curb  your soon to be developed anti social behavior.

So what say you fellas? Ready for Matt's hell week?

Hmmm, actually I should ask Matt if he is up to "Greasin the plebes".

As I said in the other post, this is a great idea. I hope other people would be interested in a real time chat. It would be VERY easy to do, and loads of websites have chat messaging forums. It seems to work, and I think it could be a fun idea. If it doesn't work, we could always re-evaluate it later, but I think it's at least worth a shot. Why don't we give it a go?

Hi Christopher! Actually, the difference between English and British is something that always needs to be explained...here goes:
If you are English, as I am, then you are also British. This is because England is part of Britain. Britain is made up of England, Wales and Scotland. Therefore, if you are British, you are not necessarily English. Does that make sense?
To complicate things further, the UK, United Kingdom, is basically made up of Britain plus Northern Ireland. So there is a difference between Britain and the UK.

There you go!

Post by: AKA23 on May 23, 2003, 09:26:25 AM
It makes sense to me, Christopher. Basically, the gist of it is that you can be from Northern Ireland which is in the United Kingdom, but NOT British because Britain is made up of England, Scotland, and Wales. The way that you can be part of the UK but NOT English is if you are from Northern Ireland. At least, this is how I am undertanding it, Christopher.

Not ONLY this, but if you come from Scotland or Wales, you AREN'T English, but you ARE British. English people come from England only.
Title: Re: THE ENDLESS, POINTLESS thread
Post by: Red on May 23, 2003, 12:25:24 PM
BUT... You can be a British Citizen if you are from Northern Ireland.  All people entitled to full citizenship of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland are regarded in the eyes of the law as British Citizens.

Also, before anyone points out the oddity of calling such a relatively small island Great Britain, the name was coined centuries ago to differentiate Britain from Brittany in France.   ;D

Sorry Christopher, I guess I thought I'd explained it all pretty well but maybe not. Personally I hate being called a 'Brit' because, well, I think it sounds crap. Just as if I called you a 'Yank', (which I wouldn't by the way!) it's annoying. Noone over here refers to themselves as Brits anyway. I'm glad I caused some discussion on this. I remember trying to explain this to the Americans in Kent, Ohio when I went over to study in '99. They didn't really get it either ;) I ended up using fridge magnet letters to explain...as I recall, I used an upside-down 'y' for England and Scotland, and a 'b' on the side for Wales.

I'm afraid I can't think right off the top of my head what movie a this is spoken of. (http://home.swfla.rr.com/mattreigns/instantshock.gif)
I was going through some of these old pages from this thread (obviously, right? ::)). I still don't know what movie that a tootsie roll is spoken of, or that it's in, or anything like that. Could someone enlighten me after a year and, like, two months? :)

It's a GREAT line... spoken by a rather "special" lady.  Very funny scene.  Anyone know it?
Title: Re: THE ENDLESS, POINTLESS thread

I can't remember the line, but I'm starting to remember how fun and entrancing it is to watch that Tootsie Roll eat itself. :D

Just a wild guess..... It wouldn't be Dustin Hoffman in Tootsie by any chance?

Nope, it's an Eastwood film.  :)

Hi Christopher! Actually, the difference between English and British is something that always needs to be explained...here goes:
If you are English, as I am, then you are also British. This is because England is part of Britain. Britain is made up of England, Wales and Scotland. Therefore, if you are British, you are not necessarily English. Does that make sense?
To complicate things further, the UK, United Kingdom, is basically made up of Britain plus Northern Ireland. So there is a difference between Britain and the UK.

There you go!

oh you don't even wanna go there girl!

Okay Christopher....  see if this scene opens your eyes:

Quote

#1:    Still hiding my candy.  Want me to unwrap it for you?

#2:    No.  No you don't have to show me your candy.

#1:    You sure?

#2:    No!  Not yet.  I mean, not ever.

#1:    It's a small little wrapper.  Like a little Tootsie Roll wrapper.

#2:  No.  Some people don't need to see candy.

Who are the characters, and what's the movie?

Christopher.... we may have to revoke your membership to the CEBC. NOT because you don't remember every scene in all of Eastwood, but we are talking some SERIOUS sexual innuendo in this scene!  You have to be able to pick up on this stuff if you're going to be on the CEBC board.  ;)  We LIVE ON THIS!!!!!!!!!

Nightwing is right.  

Now... can you guess what #1 is talking about?  Come on.... get your mind in the gutter where it belongs, Christopher.  Come to the dark side.... It is your destiny!  ;D

That's a good guess!  

But no.  :(

And it's not Thunderbolt and Lightfoot either!  ;D

Ask yourself this... HOW would #1 hide the "candy"?  

Title: Re: THE ENDLESS, POINTLESS thread
Post by: Christopher on June 08, 2003, 04:48:29 PM
I had thought about guessing Thunderbolt and Lightfoot just for the fun of it. ;D

If the DVD of Tightrope was already out, I could have checked it pretty quickly before guessing, but I didn't feel like putting my tape in and fast-forwarding.

Say, your last question:

would be a good clue if it was Thunderbolt and Lightfoot.

Every since you guys started to talk about the "candy" that I keep thinking it's something that she (he) would say.

Yes, John Kelso portrayed by John Cusak.

(http://goodandevil.warnerbros.com/img/chablis1.jpg)

It's the scene backstage after he sees her perform at the nightclub.  It just cracks me up.  I think there's some damn good chemistry between those two.  Kelso stammering, "No!  Not yet.  I mean, not ever!"  It's too funny!  Cusak's smiling through every scene with her.  I think I'd have as much trouble keeping a straight face as he did. ;D

Christopher, are you glad to be put out of your misery?  It only took a year, two months and all day today, but you have your answer! :D

 :) Hey guys, thanks, yep, I'm back, having skilfully evaded re-capture by the aliens of Carmel! ;D  It wasn't easy, but I finally managed to shake 'em off, with a little help from my new mate who was vacationing in Carmel, a guy called Frank Horrigan who pulled a few strings with his contacts in the White House to get me special release...

It's good to be back; I'll post some photos from California soon.  By the way Matt, I tried one of those fabled Philly cheese steaks, at a Denny's, in Tulare I think, and it was pretty tasty. :P

Welcome back, Lilly!!!

When I saw the name as the most recent poster of this thread, I think I almost said, "Lilly's back" under my breath. That would have been odd if someone had overheard me. ;D

I'm relieved to finally know what movie a Tootsie Roll is mentioned in. I've seen Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil once, and that was back when it came out on video.

Wow, this is something: for a brief while, this thread had a purpose (and it was On-topic in the off-topic forum), Lilly's back after a long absense, and Nightwing changed his name to his real name (how original of you ;)).

Post by: Matt on June 08, 2003, 09:11:54 PM
The CEBC stands for Clint Eastwood Bachelor/Bachelorette Club.  Due to popular demand, we do have honorary memberships for marrieds.  All we ask of our members is that they abide by our Covenants, which are as follows:


Membership in the CEBC requires the following:

1) Must be at least 18 years of age
2) Must be unmarried and at least somewhat sexually deprived (which lends itself to the lunacy we exhibit on an hourly basis)
3) Must worship Clint Eastwood (our god) and his workings
4) Must pay annual dues to our treasurer, Gino M (failure to do so will result in broken limbs or a swim in the East River)
5) Must treat all bachelorette members with dignity and respect (failure to do so will result in automatic expulsion from the club and thinly veiled hostility from the Vice President)
6) Must have an active imagination and sense of humor


I hereby nominate Xichado as a member (or honorary member) and eustressor as an honorary member of the CEBC.  All in favor....  :D
Title: Re: THE ENDLESS, POINTLESS thread
Post by: Matt on June 08, 2003, 09:36:56 PM
Just before we moved from the old board, BDC was in the process of trying to get unelected as President of the CEBC.  Fortunately, we didn't let him give up the post.  We need a roll call to find out who's still in the CEBC and who is still on the Board of Directors.  Remember THIS  (http://www.geocities.com/mattreigns/webboard/CEBCelections1.html) thread?  Glad I kept that first page so we remember who was in charge of what!

The CEBC is growing... may God have mercy on the board. ;)

Hahahahahaha! Perhaps best exemplified thusly?

I also still believe we need to have the REAL O.R.G.I.E meeting. Matthew had mentioned NY, I had mentioned Silver Spring (as we have the new AFI theatre here, and I am sure I could make a call if we were serious). Primarily this is because I would like to get Daisy, KC, and NBC in the same room. Preferably in white t-shirts..where they would battle it out in a pit of mud for the rights to be new head moderator on the board. This could be the first "scat" movie of CEBC...if Matt tapes it right, we get the CORRECT terrible scat movie music, and we use Gino's mafia connections to distribute.

Or are these non-Bachelorettes and therefore fair game? ;D ;D ;D

I'm truly honored, Matt - but it might be hard resolving my nomination with all of my recent posts about revelations concerning the need for more equality between the sexes in the A Perfect World discussions. ;)      

Waitaminnut, did I just pull a Corky Corchoran? If I would'a had two guns...

On the other hand, as a moosishun, I could provide the Club with loads of terrible scat movie music... just let me dig out my wah-wah pedal! ;D

Where have all my people gone? To the promised land? Where art thou? Where are Art? Art owes me twenty dollars, and I havent seen him around.

Okay, I am confusing myself.

It is time to drum up some business on this board..the fearless leader has returned finally.

I apologize for my recent absence (again) I found myself suddenly unemployed. But now that I have all my stuff in the same basket...

Lets spread some of the BDC madness around. Go ahead..its okay...take a handful, spread it all over ya...let it consume you. Warm isnt it? Like a small baby, breaking wind on your face.

Hmmmm, now, to determine whether I should go into full scale madness? Or partial madness, to bring about this board.

Roll call, say I.

MATT!!!
KC!!!
DAISY!!!!
NIGHTWING!!!
DAMB!!!!
GINO!!!!
NBC!!!!
MISTY!!!
CHRISTOPHER!!!
XICHADO!!!!

But we need a format, a vision...and not just you and KC fighting it out in a mudpit...a true direction for the board to go in.

At first I thought total anarchy...but I realized that would take too much planning.

Well, gotta boogie...daughters birthday party is in the morning...which means I must let her beat me for awhile. But I shall return my children...oh I shall return, an this time....

Well unfortuantly, we finshed last in the 2 out of the 3 races we ran. I didn't run the last race because I was really tired; I had to stay up and gaurd the tent area the whole night.

I'm currently running on 31 hours of NO SLEEP!!  :(

Either way, its party time, so I don't know if any of my posts after this, until the tomorrow morning, will make sense. Beleive me, it's really hard to wright this one right now.  ;D

 Oh well, I still had fun :D

Hey, to get this back to totally pointless, has anyone ever tasted those jolly Rancher popsicles??Theyre like those real small ones that you in in the plastic, and theres like 100 in a box.

(http://i.cnn.net/nascar/2003/news/headlines/wc/08/31/lapbylap_southern500/race_5_vl.jpg)

His first win since 1999.

I was standing and pacing the room, biting my nails for the last 30 laps after he took the lead coming out of the pits.

His first career race was at Darlington, and his first career win came there as well. Now he has won the finale Labour Day weekend race there.

This deffinatly one of the most memorable races of the year.

Again, I know nobody cares, but I cant help it, I'm just so happy and excited right now.  ;D

  Running a flavor (98, 2k, XP) of Windows?  Go to control panel - display - settings tab and adjust the colors via a drop down box.  If you already know about that and you don't have an option for greater than 16, you probably need to get the latest driver for your video card - which would entail you going to the manufacturer's web-site and downloading it.
  If your a computer savvy guy and the above is extremely obvious to you :) then ignore it and give me more info on your video prob :)  Operating system, video card, what happened right before you lost 256, etc...anything else you can think of.

Hi Conan,
the computer in question had Windows 98 Second Edition, and IIRC ran on 256 bit colour?  I updated it to XP Professional, and it suddenly was incapabable of going above 16 colour and had lost the capacity for sound.  For a variety of reasons I reformatted it and reinstalled '98, but the video did not return with its full range of selections, and it was still limited to 16 colour.  The sound did not return either.  As it is supposed to run a scanner which needs higher than 16 colour to work, it is a bit of a problem.  I figured going to the websites of the video and sound card manufacturers was the best option.  I will have to open up the casing to see what kind of 'cards', model types etc it has before I can do this.
I hope that I am able to download files/drivers to correct it.
It is all a bit daunting as I have very 'limited' computer knowledge.  However I do know how to resize screens etc from 'Control Panel', it's just that the damned thing has lost that capacity.
Any advice appreciated,

Thanks,

WKC.

  You need the drivers for sound and video, I'm 99% sure that is the problem.  Windows sometimes has built-in drivers, but not always.  Find the manufacturer's names and get the drivers from their website.  If they are a reputable company, then they will have self-installing EXE files that take care of the crap work for ya.  If not, you'll have to read the readme that comes with the drivers on how to install them.
  Right now Win 98 is using a standard VGA driver for your card, thats why you can't go above 16.

Well Conan, the problem has been solved.

It turns out that besides the Windows '98 SE disk there was also a little disk (for want of a better expression, called the 'motherboard' disk).  This disk had all the missing drivers.  Phew... ::)  It turns out I had also lost the modem drivers, so I would have had a real hard time downloading them from the internet.  Once I got the modem driver going I also had to fiddle around for an hour and a half trying to fix an unknown mystery setting that wasn't letting me dial up.  All done now though, and I think I actually learned a thing or two 8).

Thanks for your help and the useful link btw, I appreciate your thoughts and efforts.

Regards,

Geeze, I didn't realize it was so hard to bake cookies.
Title: Re: THE ENDLESS, POINTLESS thread
Post by: Christopher on October 06, 2003, 08:38:43 AM
It kinda depends on what type of cookies your baking. If it's from scratch, I can believe it. But I like to fix the ones where you just break them off, stick them on a cookie sheet, then throw 'em in the oven, and in a little over 15 minutes, whallah, COOKIES!!! ;D

It's especially nice when your away from home during the week. ;)

Yah, I had the pre-made dough and it was still nuts.

I had to wait for the stupid dough to defrost, but it was taking too long so I shoved inthe microwave and hit 'Defrost'.

After awhile it was good enough to get some dough out of. Then  I had to put cooking spray on the pan and when I went to spray it on, it went everywhere.

After 15 minutes of cleaning that up, I was ready to put the dough on the tray. I put some on and shoved it in oven. Waited 15 minutes, went and got it out and they were huge!!  

I guess I used too much, because these puppies were big. Big and flat. Not big and tall. So I figured, ok, they SHOULD be done, so I'll just put them on a plate and I'm done.

As soon as I went to pick one up, it tears apart. Apparently  I used too much dough that it wasnt fully cooked. So I had to put them in awhile longer.

After coming back, they seemed fine again. So I put them on a plate and let them sit. Once they were cooled I took and when I bit into it, crumbs went everywhere, pieces of cookie shot off and fell to the floor.

The damn thing was hard and fragile and ready to blow up.

Its deffinatly an experience alright, and one I'd like to forget.

Thanks Brendan, the same to you :)

actually, you know whats funny? I dont know about other parts of the country, but I dont know anyone who celebrates thanksgiving over here. Seriously, it's like, I have a basic idea of what it is...I guess people eat turkey and stuff, but I dont know anyone who actually celebrates it , not near this village anyways

Oh well...As long as I get a day off, keep those unknown holidays coming my way :D

sounds to me like you might have "nuked" the baking powder in the dough, that sort of thing can happen if you heat it up too much before you bake it.  ;)
I baked some buns with my "girlfriend" today and the same thing happened to me, they didnt swell properly, were quite heavy, and after two or three "small" buns i was full  ;D (and i´m supposed to be a chef)  ;D ;D ;D

You guys have been problems with your cookies because you have been forgetting about the essential ingredient....

FLUMMARY

You need to grab that dough, squeeze it, make that dough feel that there is nothing else between that dough and yourself. Then gently lay it out, and smoothly rub your fingertips through it in small circles.

If you start feeling a tingling sensation and the dough is almost melting in our hands, smack it smack it smack it... SMACK IT HARD!

The whole process lasts about 3 seconds but it's worthwhile. And the results are very rewarding.

I hope those cookies tasted good, you are a better man than me to have even used that cookie dough, i usually cheat and buy and the local starbucks along with a good hot cup of coco :P. Misty, I was hoping to hear from you on the message board about your holidays in Canada! How did you celebrate? :). I always get stuck deep frying the bird down here in the south :-X, wheres up in the midwest i grew up with the traditional oven cooked bird. I never can have my way, all the inlaws are against me, and it becomes a conspericy (?) about the fruit salad! What a time! ;D

  For dates, buy pre-cooked chicken from Harris Teeter as your main dish.  Have it already cooking and after your girl arrives, randomly yank it out of the oven and check the temp with a digital thermometer.  Start out with "hmmm...not yet" and eventually lead up to "Perfect!".  Also don't say your cooking plain-jane chicken - buy some kooky spice and apply it to the bird.  Because it isn't just "chicken" its "Brendan's Special Spicy Chicken".
  I stink in the kitchen as well :(  I just do easy stuff, like fish fillets, eggs, steak, etc...

or for a date, make the worlds longest spaghetti string. Have her hold one end in her mouth and the other end in your mouth, then the anticipation of joining ends would either make both of you enjoy locking lips together, or just fall asleep from bordom ;D

If you have a couple of italian chefs to spare, who can sing "bella notre" (Dont know if the spellings right) she is definetly yours!!!  ;D

As for a nice little different dessert, use stawberries dipped in melted dark chocolate (surely you can do that)  ;) either put them in a dessert glass with a spoon and some whipped cream on top, or just sit there and feed her the strawberries  8) Works for me every time (insert your bragging here)  ;D ;D ;D

  I've got a few other trade secrets, but that was my money "cooking for dates" tip.  It worked well until the one time I happened upon dating a non-bimbo...and my insidious plot was discovered!  But it worked out great because she laughed so hard about it that I was in :)  The really hard part is not giggling like a fool when doing the digital thermometer schtick.
  I know I'm not the only guy on here that has faked being a master chef.  Someone else needs to fess up :)
Title: Re: THE ENDLESS, POINTLESS thread
Post by: dane with no name on October 17, 2003, 06:20:03 AM
I´ll gladly share some from my (usually flat out broke)pre-chef days  ;D

The frase new vine on old bottles comes to my mind...
Buy an expensive vine, use it on a date or drink the whole yourself *burp* save the bottle, and refill it with a less expensive vine. First you pour the wine in a bowl to "chock" it ( its like a turbo decantation) then pour it in the expensive bottle, by doing that it changes taste so it wont be recognised as a cheap vine. dont pour all of the vine down, leave a bit in the old bottle for the food you are preparing, for sauce.

If you are gonna buy pre cooked food, buy potatoes from one place, meat from another, sauce from a third, by doing that the date (read ; victim)  ;D wont spot that you have bought pre cooked food, if she/he does she is probably only going to spot one thing, especially if you fess up and admit it, but swear that the rest is the real McCoy... (BWAHAHAHA)
By adding one or more of three things to the dish, either bacon, the beforementioned vine or estragon, you can usually "camouflage" the original flavour. Garlic might also work, but garlic on a first date is not necessarily a good thing...

If the victim is in the kitchen, leave a couple of cooking recipies from your mom lying around, she´ll think you just went through mommys recipies to work your magic.

A good trick is to add just a spoonfull of portvine (yes, i should go to hell for wasting good port, i know... ;))  in the sauce or dish aprox. 10-15 minutes before she arrives. It gives off a powerfull smell that should utterly erase any smell of precooked meals.

That is some of the dirty tricks i used in my time. enjoy  ;D and if you henceford should call me Dane with no conscience i wont be offended  ;D *insert evil agent smith laughter here*
Title: Re: THE ENDLESS, POINTLESS thread
Post by: Conan on October 17, 2003, 11:00:59 AM
  That wine idea is both workable and hilarious, nice Dane :)  I'll add that to my bag o' tricks.
  You have to be careful with pre-cooked food.  Have an answer for every question and if you don't know how something could have been cooked up, then its a "family secret".  Your recipe idea is pretty good.  
  Also, be sure not to leave wrappers from Food Lion, Harris Teeter, etc... on top of the garbage or anywhere else that your date could discover.  I usually tupperware the non-hot food all up and then when she comes over, I take it out of the fridge like I had previously slaved over it and then stored in containers.
Title: Re: THE ENDLESS, POINTLESS thread
Post by: william on October 18, 2003, 10:44:29 PM
Another trick when preparing a wonderful, sexual, ooops I mean sensual dinner is to have a cute doggy nearby, something like my Pom or Matts Boston Terrier would be fine. That way she would have a way to slip the dog the burnt portions of the meal and not give you any ideas that you are a wonderful man for cooking this great meal that meant so much to your ego. She would then say how wonderful a man you are, and you would then pour the (port) wine out and say you spent all day preparing this meal for her, and she would be pleased and willing. Oh crap, I just woke up! ;D
Title: Re: THE ENDLESS, POINTLESS thread
Post by: dane with no name on October 20, 2003, 05:37:20 AM
Another litfle trick to use is to make (or buy) food that´s supposed to be eaten wih your fingers. Chicken is nice, and just looking casually in the eyes of your future victim while licking a small drop of juice of your finger usually gets his/her imagination working...  8)
(if the victim is slow to warm up, wait with that little nugget unto the dessert) 8)

As for dessert, always go for fruit, maybe with italian icecream. you buy it,then you thaw it up, add either port,  fresh vanilla, chopped nuts, or chocolate, then add just a small bit of whipped cream,and whip it all together, then you put it in some tubberware and freeze it again (remember to put some baking paper in the bottom for easy extraction)  This gives your "homemade" icecream a look of being... erh... homemade.

Those few last touches :
When the victim enters have some cherry tomatoes frying on the pan, (or any other form of fried garniture you want to add) It looks good and colorfull, and it doesnt take a degree in finer french cooking to make it.

Either arrange the food on plates, ready to be eaten, or put the veggies on top of the meat tocatch the victims eye (and thus draw the sight away from any recognicable precooked meats)

Remember always to make a light dinner for that special one, a heavy dinner (steak, baked potatoes, and thick sauce, just to mention some) fills the stomach to quick and the date might end with you sitting together clapping that oversized full stomach...  ::)

Also, avoid using any kind of pree cooked fish, it tends to get dry quickly, and unless you are an asian, there is no way you are gonna convince her you made that sushi yourself unless you have a closet full of sushi gear. (believe me, i made that mistake once myself  :()

One last thing! never buy precooked food you couldnt make yourself, or easily find out how to make. Ask for cooking tips in the store how to make it, the last thing you want is to be caught red handed when the victim invites you home for a little romantic co-op cooking and you stand there and dont have a clue about how to make that "special dinner just for you") ;D

Another awfull thing is canned chicken casserole. I´ve seen it twice in my life as part of my miltitary K rations back in my armydays, and both times i found either a chicken head or a chicken claw in the mix... :o  Needless to say, i´ve never eaten it  :-X

This isn't really on the subject of canned spaghetti, but it's pointless nonetheless... ;)

Since I feel like venting, I'm going to pick on the AMC cable channel. They really are starting to rot, as their movies are just loaded with commercials now. No better than TNT, TBS or UPN or any of the others. It's not uncommon now to watch a movie and get interrupted every 15 minutes with ads (5 minutes minimum). Only advantage they have over some of the other yokel channels is they occasionally present in widescreen. But they have really gone downhill....too bad, they used to be one of my favorites.

Hey, Misty, when your computer stops acting up, go to your private messages and click the "Preferences" button at the top of the list of messages. One of the choices is "Notify by email." Set it to "Yes." Then, every time someone PMs you, you'll get a message in your regular e-mail that will have the text of the PM.

Thanks for the warm wishes on my cats v dogs thread Misty, I really appreciate it. It's nice to be back (allbeit on and off...just don't have the time anymore  :'( )

I just wanted to say that I'm sad that Buffy ended for good. It was one of my favourite programmes.
I was shocked to discover that James Marsters (Spike) is actually American. His English accent was so good (although in the early seasons it's not as good, I think he needed time to perfect it) I couldn't tell. I think Drusilla's accent was kind of fake. I don't know if she's American or not, I guess so. She had more of a Cockney English accent but it wasn't so natural. Some of the Slayer Potentials in the final series also had awful English accents, I found it quite insulting actually because noone talks like that over here.

Go and vote on my cats v dogs thread if you haven't already! And see my latest post on there, I've put a pic up of my cat Jessica who's 9 1/2 although the pic is a few years old.

Hi again :)
Sorry if this isnt really pointless, but I wanted to share without starting a new thread.
 I learned yesterday that one of my close friends (Ive known him since I was like 8 has a brain tumor, and has to get this big operation on Friday. He's been transfered to a hospital in Moncton, Which is 3 hours drive from here, so me and my friends are taking a day off on friday, and we're gonna hitch hike there, so I guess I wont be on for a couple of days again.
 Hope at least the weather's nice :-\
I just wanted to share- that guy is really a nice guy- trust me, he's worth mentioning :(
It makes me sad when I think about how it can happen to anybody....He spent his whole life in school, and now he might just die.
 I think the doctors said there was a 90% chance of sucess, but you never know :-\. Another girl at school went to visit him and said he was pretty positive about the whole thing, and not really worried.
I hope hes right

So wish him luck, and us too (we got a looonnng walk ahead of us ;))

 I think the doctors said there was a 90% chance of sucess, but you never know :-\. Another girl at school went to visit him and said he was pretty positive about the whole thing, and not really worried.
I hope hes right

So wish him luck, and us too (we got a looonnng walk ahead of us ;))

Ps-you never know, I might get to buy a cheap DVD player over there :D

I new a nice young girl who had repeated op's to remove brain tumors.  All successful.  They are very good with that sort of thing nowadays.  It seems the secret is to keep your check ups regular.

Be careful hitching, and stay close to your friends.

Can we discuss the meaning of life here in this thread or does that get off the "pointless" part of this thread? I mean, I don't see why we couldn't get into deeper philosophical issues here. Why not? We're never going to come to any conclusions that everybody is going to agree with anyway, so I think that can be seen as a "pointless" conversation. I don't know, perhaps I just have trouble accepting the complete pointlessness of a thread. Haven't I been trying to question or in some way sabotage these efforts for years now? Maybe I just need to chill man! Chill!

Hey, I just thought of something -
you know what would be kinda nice? *looks around in search of a mod* ;) to have one topic maybe per week, in the off topic discussion, something that everyone could join in ie; the meaning of life as AKA said, or anyways, something where there could be a lot of discussion...
Maybe we could just do this in one thread...and just all choose a topic together every week...
yes?no?
just a thought..If we find something everyone has something to say about, it could be pretty interesting :)

As for "The Endless, Pointless thread," it has gotten way off track from what it was intended to do.  You need to go back and read the first several pages.  This was supposed to be complete nonsense that made you laugh every time a new post went up.  It isn't that way anymore.  It has become a "catch-all" for every miscellaneous thing someone wants to say that doesn't have any other place to put it.

So, no, I don't think you should start talking about the philosophy of life in this thread.

And, what's all this controversy over the cats and dogs thread? Who cares what's better? Cats, dogs...whatever! Both of 'em are here and they're here to stay, so why don't we just accept that and move on with our lives....

DID I MENTION LONG LIVE CLINT EASTWOOD!!!!

  In case you haven't heard of it - you should check out MAME, the multiple aracade machine emulator, on the Net.  You can play tons of old school arcade games via roms using Mame.  Legally though you have to own the game itself before you can actually have the rom :)  So make sure you buy the whole cabinet version of the game before you play it on Mame ;)

My family used to have an Atari until it just stopped working one day. I always loved the game Mouse Hunt (or Mouse Trap, whatever it was). It was a Pac-Man type game, which we also had on our Atari.

I remember we had Asteroids too.

("We" being my older brother and I)

I remember the first time I ever saw the Nintendo. My cousin's family had one. I remember I was amazed because you could actually pause the game. ;D And the game I saw played was Super Mario Bros.

PONG.  I remember that.  What a pain in the yatabe (Latka Kravitz, anyone?) that was. Pulling it out, untangling the cords, trying to figure out what cords went where, and after half an hour of messing around, you hit a ball into the wall. But, it was the first arcade game you could play at home, and it was great for the time.

Then there was Pacman. Then Ms. Pacman. But what got my blood pumping at the age of 13 more than Farrah was this:

IS anyone else addicted to those Monkey Island games?
I had Escape from Monkey Island for my birthday when it came out a few years ago and couldn't stop playing it then. I recently discovered it again and couldn't stop playing it yet again! I wonder when the next one's due out.

That was a fair comment from Mary a while back, but really, what constitutes an endless, pointless thread? Most of what I say is rubbish anyway so surely that qualifies?! Anyway, most things aren't pointless. Because ultimately they serve a purpose to a degree. Like this thread for example. It serves a purpose, a need at some level, unconscious or otherwise.

See! That was mindless babble, with a grain of truth perhaps.

But if there's one thing I've realised it's how good this thread is for showing our true personalities and...looking at all the posts again made me realise (sniff) just how much I...at the risk of sounding pervy...I love you all so much! And it's why I keep coming here, and why I feel so at home...you're all so wonderful and unique and funny and it's why I love you and I'm proud to be a member of this site and a fan of Clint.

  5-7 year gig depending on contract that I sign...Nothing is in stone yet, if they lowball me (doubtful), then I'm not going.  Its all about the moolah, they would give me a raise, pay for housing, gym membership, and give me a transportation allowance, among other things...

  Anyway...One bid and counting!
 
  On a side note...Yea alleycat, I remember the Monkey Island games, they were great but I never got into that series enough to beat them.  If you liked that genre, you love Sam and Max Hit the Road, which will have a long-awaited sequel later this year.

Ah, dearest Matt, you finally noticed my presence  ;) Sorry it's been a while. Dear old Christopher was the first to respond though. Christopher Robin always was best friends with Pooh bear  :)
I'm sorry I've been away. Internet access has been so darn difficult lately. I may even have to move down south to London to get a decent job so if that happens, I don't know when I'll be able to come on here  :'( I think I'm feeling a bit down because I'm trying to get my first proper job and haven't had any luck so far. And I'm a quarter of a century old in about 6 weeks, which I know isn't old but it feels it and I seem to have achieved so little so far. Anyone ever get that feeling that they really wanted to be an artist/musician/in a band/a novelist/etc and now you've missed your calling? It's too late? I kind of still want to be all of the above. So far I'm a temporary office worker. Again.

Anyway, less rants, more pants. This thread needs to be pointless. Rather like a pencil which is worn down to the nub. Lets talk about pants. Pants can mean many different things. Especially if you come from another country, like me. You can wear pants. Aha, I hear you cry, do you mean the proverbial trousers, as they say in the Motherland, or knickers, which is what they also mean there. Here. Anyway. An interesting turn of phrase, to be sure. I actually mean pants in the sense that I'm having a crappy evening because of staying in on a Friday night with only Friends and Sex & the City for company. Which were great by the way. That is an English phrase, 'pants'. I actually coined it myself about 12 or more years ago when the word was scarcely in use. It's true, don't laugh. I invented the word and suddenly everyone was using it. Thought it was cool. But while the fires of anger and betrayal burned inside, I knew the truth. That it was me, me who had invented it. Yes, us, Preciousssss!!
Anyway, the alternative meaning of pants meaning either underwear or trousers is very interesting. Depending on whether you hark from the small island to the east or you live in the big one to the west which is made up of fifty different bits. I like the word 'knickers' personally, though usually I call them my pants. It's one and the same. I don't think using pants to mean trousers is quite as refined, but that's the way the language has evolved. Strange, don't you think, that you guys call yourselves Americans yet you still speak English? This certainly is a most fascinating topic. Let's talk about it at great length. Who wants to continue? I do? Ok, then, I'll talk next.

A VERY BRIEF HISTORY OF THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE

The history of the English language is very fascinating. It originates in a small dark bog in the year 864, specifically the dwelling of a greasy, shifty-looking frog called Trevor. You wouldn't think to look at him, but the fate of the English language rests entirely on his squashy, green, wart-encrusted and extremely repulsive head. He's about to speak. The first word ever to be uttered in English, loosely related to the version we know today.
The world holds its breath and the pregnant air is filled with anticipation and longing.
"Ribit."
And there you have it, the first word in the English language ever uttered in history, the course of which would now be irrevocably changed, forever. Things could now only move onward and upward, for English, and most certainly, for Trevor, officially now the most famous frog in history. In the history of history.
Which would have been great if he hadn't then been eaten by a Lesser Spotted Woodpecker who just happened to be passing. The irony of the situation was completely lost on him. Which, in itself, was ironic.

The End.

I'm glad you (nearly) paused your cd. That made it all worthwhile!

Actually I confess that the Echo and the Bunnymen website has been claiming me since November, on and off. I was helpless to resist. I now have over 50 posts there. I'm sorry, I know it was wrong to leave Clint and you guys. I was tempted and I succumbed. Oh my god, I just had to look up how to spell 'succumbed'. And I pride myself on my impeccable spelling ability! And the first word I turned to in the 'S' section of the dictionary was 'sex'! Now that' s wishful thinking  :P And then after that it was 'suborn', which means, 'to bribe or procure, to commit perjury or other unlawful or wrongful act...to achieve by stealthily means.' Hehe, I like that. That is now officially my name.

Then, I came back to present-time Endless, Pointless thread, and found myself with Ally's post.

My.....that's a big one.

But I made it through the whole thing. Of course, by the time I get this posted, someone else may have already posted again.

Don't feel bad, Ally, about not having much to do on a Friday night. I have a literature paper due Monday, and a film paper due Tuesday, and a drawing assignment due Tuesday. Yet.....I'm on the board right now. Funny how those things work out. What was my point? Oh yeah, I have nothing to do on a Friday (or a Saturday night, for that matter) except work for school.

I think I've told you before that I feel old myself some days. So by the time I get to your age, Ally........ :o

Just kidding there. :D

Ah, dearest Matt, you finally noticed my presence  ;)

Ahhhh, Ally.... I always notice your presence... however, by a rare and unfortunate clash of circumstances, your re-emergence on the board coincided with one of my rare but impenetratable quiet periods. They happen every few months....

As for The Toadies... check them out here:

The Toadies (http://ubl.artistdirect.com/store/artist/album/0,,206169,00.html)  (Best song and most well-known is "Possum Kingdom"... click on that one.)

I'm going out with my lady friend tomorrow... so I'm basically yours (and the board's) tonight. :)  :-*

You young whippersnapper! Leave us oldies alone  ;)
I wish I was still in education. I know it sounds crazy but I enjoyed it more. Believe me, once you're out of it you'll miss it. Those days come but once in a lifetime.

Matt, I wish you were mine for longer, but sadly it's close to midnight here so I think I'll be heading upstairs to bed. At least it's the weekend tomorrow. My relatives are having a party and I'm going to wear a new dress that cost £85, it's 100% silk. Damson silk. Don't let all the blood rush to your head now, (on second thoughts, wouldn't want it to go elsewhere... :o )

Farewell my froggy princes...

Annoyingly, I posted on the Oscars thread and then the system logged me out. I've gotta stop it doing that! Feels like I've been dumped somehow  ;)

Did not really want to leave you with that thought but, too late...

Christopher, you can have that kiss from Matt if you want. There are plenty to go round!  :-* :-* :-* :-*

Matt! You bugger! I had just logged out and saw your posts. Are you trying to lure me back?!
Actually, the younger men thing, you don't know the half of it. I already have one, who's 4 years younger than me. He will be 21 next month  ;D
However, I used to have a thing for older guys. Not that I'm trying to insinuate something here...
Ever feel that we need to get out more?  ;)

Erm...I won't answer that  ;)

Anyway there's thousands of miles separating us so your girlfriend can rest easy (and my bit of stuff). It's probably just as well. However, on a slightly more serious note, I would like it if we had a Clint meetup sometime...a sort of international convention. Now that would be 100% legit and would be lots of fun too. I did tell you that I'm coming over to the States this autumn/fall, although it will probably be NY and Boston. And bit of stuff will be coming with me.

Oh well... :-\

Wow, I'm actually a little older than your man, Ally.

Maybe I am gettin' old.

Which reminds me (a pointless rambling is about to take place). Not long ago I noticed a girl who I really thought was very pretty. Then.....I found out she was 15. :-[ (I had already started school by the time she was born for crying out loud)

Oh yeah, if anything like that should ever happen to anybody, do NOT, I repeat, DO NOT tell your friends about it. They will NEVER let you live it down.

Got my second job rejection letter today. 1st one was on Friday. Looks like I'm on a roll! Bah humbug.

Last night I had a weird dream. Wish I could remember it all. Does anyone else dream movies? I always dream weird but cool dreams which could be made into a film. They're usually quite science fictiony like 2001 A Space Odyssey or Alien. Last night's was quite apocalyptic. There was one bit with a huge plane and it was flying really low and I thought it was going to crash into the buildings but it just skimmed the top of them and it reminded me of Pearl Harbour (the film). At least, that's what I thought when I was dreaming. The best, coolest bit I can't remember, which is a real shame because I think it would have won me my first Oscar for Best Director or Best Original Screenplay, if only I could have tape-recorded the events from my brain and submitted it at next year's Oscars.

Does anyone else have such cool dreams or is it just me? (please let it just be me!)

I've only mentioned my sci-fi epic dream because it's more interesting than the, ahem, dreams I have when it's raining. 'Cause you know, it does rain a lot over here in England  ;)

I've had a Firefox dream where I was the Mitchell Gant character, but it wasn't the same as the movie. My girlfriend had a co-starring role, and there was a motel in ... Antarctica where we had to land the plane. So... there was a little added subplot to my version. It was gooooood.

And I've dreamt I was the catcher for the NY Yankees. Liked that one a lot too.  ;D

I had Oreos, double stuffed, for breakfast this morning.

Awful, I know, it could be disastrous for my figure. :D (talk about extreme naughtiness ;))

I don't dream very many interesting dreams nowadays. I know when I was a lot younger, I'd talk about my dreams with a friend. I'm pretty sure we'd make up a few of the more interesting ones.

Why do you ask, Christopher? We have lots of cookies over here. I think I'm missing the point of your, um, point! Well this is the endless, pointless thread! I was hungry so I ate one. Well, two actually. Oreos, I know what they are. We don't have those over here though. I'm not a big fan of sweet stuff for brekky most of the time. Extreme naughtiness? I wouldn't know about that ;)

Anyway, I think you would be a satsuma Christopher. Each juicy segment better than the last one. Yum!

KC, we don't have baseball over here so I guess I can't really view Matt's dream as interesting. Unless he was wearing one of those skin-tight outfits that the players wear...I seem to remember seeing pics of them before. Now that would be interesting. Hee hee!

The trouble with football (English) is that the players wear shorts. Which aren't that clingy really. Although at least we can see their legs, eh?

Yes Matt, being in uniform makes it better. That's the sure-fire way to a woman's heart - a man in uniform! Although it usually has to be if he's in the forces or sports - the local pizza delivery boy just wouldn't, uh, cut the mustard as it were  :-X

I wish I could take a walk on the wild side...somehow spending my evenings filling in job applications isn't how I planned to spend most of my time!

In the meantime...down, boy. Perhaps some of my monotonous, self-indulgent poetry will douse the flames of passion  ;) (ok so I've just been waiting for an excuse to post it)

Time Bleeds

These years are coming to an end
I wrap myself up in me - all I have left
But where is the real me
Beating inside
What once was a heart
Has withered and died
A useless lump of metal
Scattering its petals
The wind takes away
Everything beautiful and frail
It breaks me til I bleed
And I fail and I'm falling
As I hear someone calling
My name echoes on the breeze...

(copyright Alexandra Cooper August 11th 1998)

That wasn't my best one but I happened to turn to it in one of my books of poetry...so you had it inflicted upon you...

P.S. I don't really use punctuation, I find it too constricting.

I dyed my hair red on Thursday night. Then I thought it was too purpley-red so I tried to put a brown dye over the top last night. Now my hair is a dark reddish purpley-brown :( It doesn't look bad or anything but I wish my boredom threshold (regarding my hair) wasn't so low.

Fall in love with the words...

(2000)

Love's a two-way dream
Wrapped around my heart


------------------------------------------------------------------------

And Now I Leave You (1996)

You call my name
But there is no answer
No sound save for the beating
Of your heart.

I call your name
But you cannot hear me
My face among the clouds
Now that we're apart.

Like drops of dew
Your eyes glisten with tears
We talked of growing old
But never talked of this.

Remember us,
And how we watched the stars
You smiled, then came from your lips
The tenderest kiss.

And try to smile
Despite the grief and sorrow
Amidst the empty ache
And troubled sleep.

So here I lie,
Under these blanket skies
Where you must let go of me
To hold on to your memories.

------------------------------------------------------------------------

(1999)

A breathless voice
Leaves me no choice
I must resist you
I want to kiss you
On those welcoming lips
A cherry kiss
In feathered bliss
Like butterflies
Fluttering upon your lips

No, Al Bundy is a character from one of our American TV shows, Married With Children. I tried to find a picture of him to compare with the cat above, but... didn't come up with a good one. I thought Conan actually used the 'quintessential Bundy pose' for his avatar once. Conan, can you post it here if you still have it?

  A chick from KY bought it off me for 3150 bucks.  Her husband drove her out here, and she drove it back the 9 hours to KY.  Everything went smooth; they have owned 6 Eagles over the years.
  I'll miss it, but I can't have two cars if I'm living in Signapore.  And also, never get an old car unless you have a garage.  Its a pain to work on one if you live in an apartment.

See, Ally's smart... she knows if she had posted this one earlier, she would have had to hire a bodyguard to keep me away from her. ;)

Thanks for sharing your poetry with us, Ally.  :)

Matt, you sweetie. I did write that one 5 years ago but of course, in posting it here, the sentiment was directed towards you  :-* Why would I want to hire a bodyguard anyway?  ;)

Boy oh boy, this is turning into a mutual appreciation society all right!

And as for Al Bundy...I know who he is! Up until recently Married with Children was on regularly on one of the satellite/cable channels over here, and any time I caught it I have to say it made me embarrassed to be watching it. Now that guy is obnoxious and lazy. Makes Homer Simpson look like a saint! But you're right, the cat is totally Bundy cat. My cat sits like that with her legs splayed, and I always call her a shameless hussy for so blatantly 'displaying her wares', if you know what I mean! If she was a human being I could imagine her being like Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman...you know, in that outfit...

Mary, thanks for the acknowledgement about the poetry too. I'm sure if you put your heart and soul into it you'd write something beautiful. Anyway, beauty is in the eye of the beholder, as they say  ;)

P.S. Having probs with my e-mail because for some reason BT and Yahoo have merged, so I can't access my old or new messages at the moment. You know, they've done the usual trick of downsizing the size of the mailbox from 50MB to 5MB or something like that, and if I want a bigger mailbox I have to pay.

Now that everyone here thinks I go around dressing up my dog.... it was for the annual Humane Society fundraiser for pug owners. It had a St. Pat's theme... here's a picture of one of the dogs, not mine (I made a St. Pat's card out of it.)

Cool picture, Conan! Very funny. Exactly what I had in mind. Anyway Matt, dressing up your dog is nothing to be ashamed of ;) We all have our little quirks, don't we? And if he wants to dress you up, let him. You owe him that much. At least you're not into dressing up as a woman. Not that your girlfriend should mind, you could borrow her outfits...exchange tips on what to wear (does my bum look big in this?) The possibilities are endless!

And who's Mrs Teschmacher...don't worry, I think I can work it out :)

Christopher, being named after Superman, I thought you more than anyone here would know who Miss Teschmacher is! She saved Superman's life when he was drowning in Lex Luther's pool with the kryptonite chained to him. And yes, she dug him.  ;D


Funny, I thought Mrs Teschmacher was an old school teacher of Matt's that he had an affair with or something.

Had to look it up, but there's nothing in the "Teacher's I've Bribed With Sex" section of my old black book between "Taylor" and "Thompson", so that would be a no. However, looking under the "Have Restraining Orders Against Me" section, there is one that comes awfully close.  :-[

It's one of the cutest pictures you will ever see. Sadly I don't have any pictures anywhere near as cute as that these days.

And Matt, you surprise me! I would've put you down as the teacher-seducing type ;) As the anything-seducing type, for that matter ;) ;) ;) Some people get soooo turned on at the words 'restraining order'...

And as for the poncho...yes yes yes, that is so a good look. Much better than what I had in mind. I can just see you now...(sigh). A poncho is better because it leaves more to the imagination...room to get under if you know what I mean  ;) A poncho made for two  8)

Ally, the only way you can go blind reading the Kama Sutra is if you read it by yourself. ;)

Did I give too much away or something?!

Matt, 16's a bit young for the Kama Sutra isn't it? I'm impressed! (and also a bit hot under the collar now). Once again your reputation precedes you. When I was 16 I was only just starting to discover my hormones. Although...boy did I make up for lost time. That's what comes of being at an all-girls private school for 5 years...

Vik...are you still talking books?

I think the leather restraints were more my thing ;)

So...is Christopher coming to this shindig as well?

Don't be too impressed, Ally. It was waaaay over my head. I remember looking through it and turning the book this way and that, trying to figure out how you would go about doing some of those things... and thinking this "sex" thing seemed much more complicated than I thought it would be.  ;D

It sure didn't help when it was time to put it to use.  There are some things you just can't learn from a book. :-\

Things have gotten slightly better since then, but I'm still not the big muscular guy with the Harley that you're looking for, vik. That would be my oldest brother. And since he regularly cheats on my sister-in-law, I could probably set you up with him....  

Then again, maybe you'd be better off with one of us CEBCers.   ;)

Matt, the thought of you trying to put the Kama Sutra into practice is nearly too much for my delicate senses to bear... ;)

And did I say that I've never been into big muscular
guys?!

Yeah my dad sounds a lot like your brother. Except for the muscles and the Harley...

Nope, I'm not the muscular type, and fortunately... I don't have the Superman belly. However, I think we can accomodate Vik right here within the CEBC.  Conan and BDC28 are the lifters of our club...  I think we can pool our funds together for a Harley rental and a bit of leather. Gino, how much is in the treasury?

Ally...  things have changed since 1981. I think we could manage to get through the entire Kama Sutra without much trouble... maybe even add a few pages to it.  :)

Hmm, an offer I simply can't refuse! Although the entire Kama Sutra? I think we'll need a lot of stamina...and perhaps we need to practise some yoga first, so that we're bendy enough! And then there's the question of lubricant... ;)

Not sure about the cockney one though. Cockney is a dialect many people who don't live 'darn sarf' in England just don't understand. It's like... apples & pears = chairs. China plate = mate

So...that's where me old china comes from, see?

The dialectizer doesn't do real Cockney...it just makes your words sound like a lot of southerners in England, except exaggerated. Like something out of My Fair Lady. Like Dick Van Dyke's awful 'mockney' in Mary Poppins. Real Cockney is like what I mentioned above. Cockney rhyming slang, see?

I'm not that familiar with it because I'm not from that area. Cockney is a dialect of a specific area...just to be pedantic (my favourite word!). Specifically it's East London.

I think there's this view of us that we all talk like, 'Blimey, Guv'nor! Wotcher, cor what larks!' etc. Like something out of a Dickens novel. I don't know anyone who talks like that, and if they did, I'd slap 'em about the face, quicksmart, 'cos I think they were taking the mickey!

Check out www.whoohoo.co.uk/links.asp (http://www.whoohoo.co.uk/links.asp) for specific English dialects including a Scouse dialect translator (Liverpool, so you can sound like The Beatles, Matt!), Geordie translator (Newcastle), Cockney (again), Yorkshire, Scottish, Irish, a 'jolly well spoken' translator so you can sound like the Queen should you so wish, and one after my own heart, a Brummie translator (sound like people from Birmingham, England, like me! Although I actually don't have the accent...thank God!)
Title: Re: THE ENDLESS, POINTLESS thread
Post by: Gant on April 11, 2004, 07:56:30 AM
I'm from East London and use very little rhyming slang... just the occasional word.. it's a dialect that is constantly changing and some words can become very out of date very quickly... I've never heard anyone use "apples and pears " etc... I expect they'd be shot if they did...

Theres some good ones around at the moment... One I do use is ... A Nigel for a ten pound note..

Nigel Benn (famous boxer) = £10.

Like I said tho'... if over done it can quickly become a bit pathetic.... some people watch too much Only Fools and Horses . ::)

That Nigel Benn rhyming slang for a tenner is a bit rubbish, isn't it? I mean - Nigel Benn, ten, is that how it's supposed to go?

It should be something that rhymes with 'tenner', surely?

Honestly, southerners, eh?!

Of course the Benn part of his name is imeadiately dropped and it  just becomes a Nigel. :D
You never use the actual rhyming part.

A door opens against a dark background...shining in white light. A silhoutte of a man walks in slowly...the door shutting behind him. The sound of that door shutting causes the man to trip over himself into a large barrel of banana peels.

The man looks around the weather beaten old thread...a familiar friend...with both laughter..tears, and flummary past in his mind.

The man at the door? Michael Caine..DUH ITS ME!!!

You can hear the sounds of birds chirping outside my window..hang on a second *walks over, grabs a boot, flinging it at the chirping birds*...thank goodness.

I've edited my post because I'm trying to be good. I want to get my gold stars. Funnily enough, the Endless, Pointless thread seems to have gone back to normal size. Whewww!

Hang on...I think the subtle wisdom of Pooh can sort this one out for us. You seen him lately, Christopher? How's he doing? ;)

I lay on my chest
And I thought it best
To pretend I was having an evening rest;
I lay on my tum
And I tried to hum
But nothing particular seemed to come.
My face was flat
On the floor, and that
Is all very well for an acrobat;
But it doesn't seem fair
To a Friendly Bear
To stiffen him out with a basket-chair.
And a sort of sqoze
Which grows and grows
Is not too nice for his poor old nose,
And a sort of squch
Is much too much
For his neck and his mouth and his ears and such.

(says Pooh)

Awww KC, that's lovely! I wonder if they miss home at all?

Christopher, that's good to hear. Say hi from me. Me and Pooh go back a long way...I was there for him when the Disney cartoons came out based on stories he had told in confidence about his life...he took it bad. Said they had misrepresented him...made him look too garish. Fortunately, Owl came in and talked some sense into him...that was a rough patch there.

We got really close one time but then Piglet got jealous so we agreed just to be friends. But...those were the days. Pooh knows me like no other bear could ;) But then, Christopher could tell you that. After all, Edward Bear belonged to him...

I don't know about that. News to me, in fact. Pooh is a quiet bear, doesn't really like to open up emotionally. Doesn't want to let anybody in his private life. I told him myself, I says, "Pooh, you shouldn't keep your feelings inside. That way, no one can get close to you."

winnie the pooh - snuggle poem


You can never be alone with Pooh
He will always be there for you

When things are sad and all in a muddle
Pooh will cheer you up and give you a snuggle

Some days can be hard and you wonder why
And maybe even sometimes cry

But Pooh will always be there with his comforting paw
Of his love you can always be sure

So keep Pooh close
In times of trouble just reach for Pooh
And have a snuggle.

During the 1982 Falklands war British pilots reported that penguins toppled over backward while gazing at the planes. British navy pilots were then banned from flying low over penguin colonies. It led to a UK government study of the penguin-toppling effect. For seventeen days two helicopters were flown from varying directions and heights over the penguins. The result? Penguins do not topple over while gazing at airplanes.

And did you know that penguins only have sex twice a year? I think that makes them candidates in good standing for the CEBC.

Actually.... (http://home.swfla.rr.com/mattreigns/lol.gif) it turns out that the penguin toppling was only a myth. Check out this link:

http://www.falklands-nature.demon.co.uk/toppeng.html

Why would someone make this kind of stuff up? The International Union for Conservation of Nature seems rather upset about this myth.

Quote
For those of us involved with protecting penguins in the wild these stories of penguin toppling are not very funny. . . . . With increased tourism and a large military base in the Islands we need ensure that there is a clear understanding of the problems and refute these 'funny stories' which are both inaccurate and fail to point out the very real dangers such activities cause to these fascinating birds.

Well, since I don't have an airplane to try to topple penguins, I guess they won't be coming after me for  simply spreading the myth. Whew!  (Sidenote: Can you imagine anyone less threatening than a nature conservationist? ???)

Speaking of penguins :
If a penguin is left without it´s mother at a young age, and does not learn how to interact with penguins proberly, it can develop odd sexual habits (such as believing itself to be the other sex)  ???

Christopher...you love Snapples too! I don't see them around very often, but when I do, I buy one...my favourite is Cranberry Raspberry. How about you?

Actually, speaking of penguins, did you know that over here we have a chocolate bar (well, a sort of biscuit-and-chocolate bar) called a Penguin? They haven't advertised them for a while but the tagline went, 'Pppick up a Penguin'. Here's a pic of a pack of Penguins - I couldn't find one of a bar on its own:

Okay, I've showed Dannyman this one through PM, and now I'm going to realise it onto the board. But First...

One day, my friend (Stevie) had a sleepover, and we stayed up all night, so by the morning, my friend (Bob) was extreamly tired, and he fell asleep in my conservatory. Bad Idea:

If you're using a tea bag, it will never taste any good. Use loose tea in a French press.
Either way, time generally ranges 3-5 min. BUT  it really depends on the type of tea you're using--- is it white, green, or black tea? Is it even actual tea or is a tisane/herbal? How big are the pieces? Most tea bags contain "dust and fannings", and are kinda like the instant coffee of teas. For that reason, if I were going to drink tea bag tea, I wouldn't keep it in the water for any longer than 3 mins.

That would be Dale Earnhardt Jr. (http://www.nascar.com/drivers/dps/dearnhar01/cup/index.html), so it's no surprise people jumped all over it.

Hey, the weather here is pretty bad too you know! Bad as in unpredictable. That's one thing you can always guarantee...the unpredictability of the weather in Britain ;D One minute it's sunny, then it's raining, then it's overcast, yesterday we had thunder and lightning (and a local boy in the region was struck by lightning and killed) and today it was overcast and sunny again. And it's been pretty humid the whole time. A miracle I don't currently have an afro! My hair went crazy when I was in Ohio from August '99 onwards. The humidity there was the worst ever...I nearly had to shave my head!

It's the long, slow summer, so I think the board's a bit slow again. Seems to happen every year. Maybe I can liven things up with my own special blend of spice before I go away ;)...yes, I know you're all going to miss me terribly! I will miss you all too...

Ever been to South Florida? You ain't seen humidity until  you've been to the Everglades. I actually live on the outskirts of the 'Glades, and we're talking pretty severe humidity. The windows fog up here, and when you get out of your car, your sunglasses steam up immediately.

You know I haven't been to Florida yet. But I'll stay away from there, just while it's so humid. The rest of the time I can come though right? :)

You want to avoid the humidity but still come to Florida. Well, you've got about a two month window of opportunity. Better plan on January or February. But... you just can't be anywhere better that time of the year.

Here's a question:

Why must people walk on the road? Especially at night. Wearing dark clothes. There is no valid reason for this. Walk on the sidewalk, thus the reason it's called a sidewalk. It's on the side of the road and it's wear you walk. SIDEWALK. I can understand if there's no sidewalk, or if it's newly paved or if something is blocking that portion of the sidewalk, but when there is no obstruction and no new pavement what gives?
Title: Re: THE ENDLESS, POINTLESS thread
Post by: Matt on August 04, 2004, 09:23:23 PM
I rollerblade in the street (and always at night), although there's sidewalks here. Too many idiots park their cars in their driveway so that they stick out into the sidewalk. Plus,  the turns are wider and easier to maneuver on the street than the 90 degree angles of the sidewalks.

However, I can't think of a good reason to walk in the street if there's a sidewalk.  ???

I rollerblade in the street (and always at night), although there's sidewalks here. Too many idiots park their cars in their driveway so that they stick out into the sidewalk.

Rollerblading's fine, too an extent. As long as your wearing a white shirt, or something that's reflective so the drivers can see you and you show them courtesy by getting out of their way when their coming, it's all good. Any rollerbladers (that's something I wish I could do, I see so many hotties doing it) that I've run into on the street at night have relfective gear on, so it helps me to avoid hitting them.

Tonight the roads were bad. I was on my street and the fog was coming on strong from the lake, so it made nearly impossible to see the people walking. I'm lucky I didn't run them down. I was going below the speed limit (being careful) but still, I could have easily hit them and guess what? It would have been my fault since they're a pedestrian. Huh?

It's common knowledge folks. Light colours refract light better then dark colours. It ain't too hard to put on a white shirt now is it?

Next time it happens, I'm stopping the car and questioning the people (nicely of course) on their desicion to walk on the road and risk getting run down.

I just thought of something else.... cyclists who don't ride single file, or use the bike lane. What gives?

I get out of their way, alright. But, not out of courtesy.... because I don't want to die! I find it safer to rollerblade at night, because I can't get motivated to do more than a few minutes unless I have my headset on. During the day with music going, you have no idea when a car's coming up behind you but at night, I usually have a good 30-seconds of reaction time to get out of the way. The heat and humidity during the day is another reason I only rollerblade at night. But... I've gotten some pretty bad injuries from not being able to see well enough to avoid pot holes, coarse spots in the street or sticks/rocks, etc. When you're going 15-20 mph on wheels ...  that's not a good thing.  

And, sorry to say... I don't make a point of wearing a white shirt, and I don't wear reflective clothing. But believe me...  I know when a car's coming, and I'm outta the way.

They have also been making 'Princess' which is crap, plain crap. I like a dirty joke as much as the next 14 year old, but this, it's not even funny. They have  gone over the top, and not made it at all funny. The offensive-ness level of South Park and South Park the Movie is fine as it is. They took it too far with this. If you want the link, PM me, but, It's not funny, in my opinion.

As the South Park series went on and on, it became less and less funnier (With the execptions of 'The Jeffersons and 'Good times with weapons') The best series of South Park is and will always be Series 1.

Yeah, I've been following them, in my own time  8)
Passion of the Jew was good, and F'd in the A (You got served) had it's moments.

The best part of you got served was the song Butters (My 2nd Fav character) was tapdancing to, 'I've got something in my front pocket for you' was hysterical. But Goobacks, WHAT CRAP. They over used 'They took our jobs' and I thought it was just not funny. Up the Down Steriod was quite funny, only if your not easily offended though. (Which I'm not, I don't remember the last time I was.)

No, Agent :) Sweet of you to say you'll miss me! I'm going to be in NY and Boston for 10 days from Aug 30 - Sept 10, then back for 3 weeks and then away studying a french course in Paris for 2 months. So, I'll try and come on here when I can, but mostly I'll be away all that time  :'( I will miss you all terribly. You all mean a lot to me!

I am in the process of setting up my own website (well it's already set up, I'm just trying to add stuff to the damn thing!) so maybe I can actually host my own images and create my own zany comic strips like our resident artist, Brendan, here :) It's actually supposed to be a forum for my poetry and prose, but what the hey!

Love you all... :-*

Whewww! It's good to be back. Sorry for being AWOL again, guys. I'll be away 10 days in America soon so I didn't mean to be away so much so close to that time!

I got my US currency today. I've still got loads of loose change from the last time I went, 4 years ago, which will come in handy for tipping. Unless people want dollar bills?

I'm hoping there isn't going to be a British Airways air strike (dispute over pay) on Aug 30 when I'm due to fly out, but it's on the cards sadly. It would really mess things up for my holiday.

All I have left to do is book the NY to Boston train at some point soon...and fingers crossed for the rest!

I missed you all (AGAIN!) and I'll try to be a better cat from now on...

 The first PG-13 that I noticed was "Red Dawn", I'm not sure if there were a few more before that.

Damn you Cone Zone!! You got it.  8) Red Dawn was the first movie to be released with the PG-13 rating attached. The movie The Flamingo Kid recieved the first ever PG-13 rating, but was shelved for a few months and during that time Red Dawn was released.

Quick History Lesson of the PG-13 Rating: The PG-13 rating was made, with the help of Steven Speilberg, after parents caused an up roar over Gremlins and Indiana Jones and The Temple of Doom both being rated PG. Parents felt certain scenes were too intense and gory for their children. Go figure.

  I remember asking my dad when I saw the trailer on TV, "What the heck is PG-13?"   He gave me some wiseguy remark about it being between PG and R.
  Before the day where I was allowed to see R movies, there was an intermediary stage where the only ones I was allowed to see were starring Chuck Norris.  So I went from no R, to Chuck Norris R, and then to full blown R :)

It has finally been answered:

Quote
After years of controversy, one of the most persistent questions in the world of film has finally been settled: Yes, Annette Bening's face was used as the model for the torch-bearing woman on the logo that opens every Columbia Picture.

I know this because Annette Bening told me so herself. We were clutching our water bottles at the opening day brunch of the Telluride Film Festival, and despite the uncounted intelligent questions I might devised, I just plain asked her if she was the Columbia Woman, "because she looks just like you."

"Oh, sure," she said, with a smile you will never see on the very serious Columbia Woman. "The artists told me it was me. But just the face. Not the body."

THE MORE THINGS CHANGE, THE MORE THEY STAY THE SAME!!!  KC

Ah but KC that is because the species known as man has a bad habit of repeating history.  We seem to stagger from century to century repeating the past, albeit by a 'modified' means or a slightly different means but the end result appears to be the same.

The rise and fall of so many empires and civilisations in the past !  These civilisations rise to a peak and then crash and burn.  The question is:  Has this world or civilisation as we know it today reached the pinnacle ?  Or do we (the collective we) have a few more steps to take before we topple down the other side of the mountain and end up in a heap at the bottom of the gully (ravine) ?

I don't know the answer to that one - but if I was a cynic (some say I am) then perhaps I would say we are at Camp 8 on Mount Everest (on the way up still) and when we fall we will fall a long way.

In the days when ships were made of wood and men of iron the cartographers had a limited knowledge of the worlds lands and coastlines.  If an explorer had gone to a certain point then the maps reflected each incrimental advancement in knowledge.  The start of the unknown areas was defined by a line through the map (north to south) and the words "Beyond here there be Dragons" was written in the unknown area.

I have always wanted to go where the Dragons are - ever since I was a child.  I am yet to see a dragon - other than depictions of them in books or perhaps in films.

Mind you I was at Urqhuat (? spelling) Castle (ruins) on Loch Ness many years ago at dusk.  And as the mists rolled in across the Loch, I would have shown little surprise if Nessie had showed up.  Not necessarily a DRAGON but hey close too it !!!

Weeeelllll yes - I guess so - in a way.  Some do refer to Australia as the land that time forgot.  And we do have the Bearded Dragon here in Australia.  But they (a lizard) are not all that large.  In Indonesia they have the Komodo Dragon - now they are getting on towards the dragon genre.

Salt Water crocs are prevalent in the north of Australia.

And the Mother-in-Law in Australia is quite often referred to as a DRAGON.

But Blonde - in the nicest possible way of course ! I would hate you to think that the men of Australia are neanderthal or anything !  It is purely, a term of affection and endearment, I believe !!!  I personally would never even contemplate using such a dreadful remark about a Mother-in-Law - if I had one to worry about, anymore, that is !!!!  Because I am JUST SOOOOOOOOOOOOO nice and polite !!!  Ha Ha Ha !

If I could offer you only one tip for the future, sunscreen would be it. The long-term benefits of sunscreen have been proved by scientists, whereas the rest of my advice has no basis more reliable than my own meandering experience. I will dispense this advice now.

Enjoy the power and beauty of your youth. Oh, never mind. You will not understand the power and beauty of your youth until they've faded. But trust me, in 20 years, you'll look back at photos of yourself and recall in a way you can't grasp now how much possibility lay before you and how fabulous you really looked. You are not as fat as you imagine.

Don't worry about the future. Or worry, but know that worrying is as effective as trying to solve an algebra equation by chewing bubble gum. The real troubles in your life are apt to be things that never crossed your worried mind, the kind that blindside you at 4 p.m. on some idle Tuesday.

Do one thing every day that scares you.

Sing.

Don't be reckless with other people's hearts. Don't put up with people who are reckless with yours.
Floss.

Don't waste your time on jealousy. Sometimes you're ahead, sometimes you're behind. The race is long and, in the end, it's only with yourself.

Remember compliments you receive. Forget the insults. If you succeed in doing this, tell me how.
Keep your old love letters. Throw away your old bank statements.

Stretch.

Don't feel guilty if you don't know what you want to do with your life. The most interesting people I know didn't know at 22 what they wanted to do with their lives. Some of the most interesting 40-year-olds I know still don't.
Get plenty of calcium. Be kind to your knees. You'll miss them when they're gone.

Maybe you'll marry, maybe you won't. Maybe you'll have children, maybe you won't. Maybe you'll divorce at 40, maybe you'll dance the funky chicken on your 75th wedding anniversary. Whatever you do, don't congratulate yourself too much, or berate yourself either. Your choices are half chance. So are everybody else's.

Enjoy your body. Use it every way you can. Don't be afraid of it or of what other people think of it. It's the greatest instrument you'll ever own.

Dance, even if you have nowhere to do it but your living room.

Read the directions, even if you don't follow them.
Do not read beauty magazines. They will only make you feel ugly.

Get to know your parents. You never know when they'll be gone for good. Be nice to your siblings. They're your best link to your past and the people most likely to stick with you in the future.

Understand that friends come and go, but with a precious few you should hold on. Work hard to bridge the gaps in geography and lifestyle, because the older you get, the more you need the people who knew you when you were young.

Live in New York City once, but leave before it makes you hard. Live in Northern California once, but leave before it makes you soft.
Travel.

Accept certain inalienable truths: Prices will rise. Politicians will philander. You, too, will get old. And when you do, you'll fantasize that when you were young, prices were reasonable, politicians were noble and children respected their elders.

Respect your elders.

Don't expect anyone else to support you. Maybe you have a trust fund. Maybe you'll have a wealthy spouse. But you never know when either one might run out.
Don't mess too much with your hair or by the time you're 40 it will look 85.

Be careful whose advice you buy, but be patient with those who supply it. Advice is a form of nostalgia. Dispensing it is a way of fishing the past from the disposal, wiping it off, painting over the ugly parts and recycling it for more than it's worth.

But trust me on the sunscreen.

You know what we haven't had here in awhile? Something that has been very lacking. Lacking so much so I decided to go out and find it again. It was hard to do, and I spent months on a trek that took me around the world too find it. What was this thing? Well read on, as the story of voyage follows:

It was a cold winters night and I had been up all night trying to figure out what this thread was missing. It finally dawned on me and I realized I had to do something about it. I just couldn't sit by and let this thread loose one of the things it founded on. So I made it my mission to bring this thing... this wonderful thing back to the ENDLESS, POINTLESS thread.

Chapter 1: The Quest Begins

I had packed my bags and was off to the airport. I knew of only one man who could help me on my quest. Fellow board member bdc28. The man who had founded this thread. The man who started it all.

I arrived in Washington, D.C. and was able to quickly track down bdc at a screening of Clint's latest film. I introduced myself and we went to a local coffee shop to discuss the reasons for my visit. I told him what I was looking for and his head perked up when I mentioned it. He smiled.

"Brendan, my friend, I haven't heard that word used in a long time. But I'm afraid I can't help you."

"Why not?" I asked.

"I have other dealings now. It is the reason why I no longer frequent the board as much."

"What is it?"

Just then a beeping noise came from a black object on his belt. bdc took it off and looked at it.

"I'm afriad these other duties call. Brendan, I can point you in the direction of where you need to go.... head to Glasgow, Scotland. There you'll need to meet up with a man by the name of Professor Bridges. He is the only man who can help you out."

Just then a big black van pulled up out front of the coffee shop and bdc walked towards it.

"Wait, bdc, how can I find him? How will I know it's him?"

"He will find you. I must go now."

"Go where?"

"That doesn't matter. What matter's now is that you find what your looking for and return it to the ENDLESS, POINTLESS thread. Do that for me and for the board. It's all yours now Brendan, make me proud."

He then got into the van and left me. I now had more determination than ever before. I was going to get it and bring it back. I left for the airport and would be off to Glasgow, Scotland.

Chapter 2: Professor Bridges and the Tradegy of Writer's Block

Once I arrived at the Glasgow Airport I decided to get something to eat. I then thought of how I was going to find this Professor Bridges. Just then a man approached me.

"Hello sir, I'm Professor Bridges."

"What? Your kidding right? I've been here 20 minutes. Damn, that was easy."

"Right-O."

We sat down at another table and I began to tell him what I was looking for when all of a sudden he got up and told me to follow him.

"What's going on?" I asked.

"We're being watched. Quickly, to my car."

We got into his car and he started it up. Before he had a chance too pull away we were hit from behind.

"Oh my, they want to play rough eh? We'll I'll give them rough, hold on Mr. Brendan."

The Professor hit a button on the dash and the car transformed into a slick, armored vehicle and a very fast, and in the end anti-climactic, car chase ensued.

"Wow, thank God for that horse and duck or else who knows what could have happened." I said.

"Ay. There'll be more baddies so we should get to my lab."

Once we were at Prof. Bridges lab he brought out some maps of where I could go to find what I was looking for.

"Wait... I need to goto... "

**At this point I suffered writer's block and couldn't think of anywhere for me to go in the story. So I'll skip to the end.**

Chapter 15: The Final Battle....

"Professor Bridges!! NOOO!! How dare you!! He was just an old man, trying to make a liv..."

"I'm not dead you twit."

"Oh... sorry. Your old. How am I supposed too know that your not dead when you stop breathing?"

"It happens every now and then."

"SHUT UP BOTH OF YOU!!" Bahll yelled. "Bahll will now crush you and take what is rightfully his!!"

"Bahll, my man, the Prof and I have been through alot over the past few weeks. The Flying Dogs of Saturn, the Magical Evil Pixies of Greenland, the planet Bostonia which is full of Boston Red Sox fans, those were some pretty serious and ugly situations and we made it out...."

"No Matter what you have endured, you've never experienced the likes of what Bahll is capable of."

"Hey... you ended that with a preposition!!"

"Bahll does no such thing. Bahll knows all."

"Bahll doesn't know that his shoe is untied," the Professor said.

"Bahll's shoe is un-tied?" Bahll asked and looked down too inspect the situation. That was our moment and when he wasn't looking I shot Bahll with the X-302 MegaZedtron phase blaster we had recieved as a 'thank you' present for saving the people of Pegosa VIII from total destruction.

He then turned into a puppy.

Chapter 16: It Is Returned...

So that's what I was upto these past few months. Bahll now lives with Professor Bridges in Glasgow, Scotland. The Prof teaches physics at the Univeristy of Glasgow. bdc is still off doing whatever he does.

I have returnd to my home in Canada with that one thing we have been missing here in the ENDLESS, POINTLESS. So I present it to you all...

Fellow Clint Eastwood Board members, I return to you:


FLUMMARY!!

Enjoy it folks, it doesn't last long these days.

The End.  8)

Dear Mr Alexi Sayle,

I enjoyed your song on the Young One's but I would like to point out one small thing.  In Australia Doc Martens are not only very popular amongest certain segments of our social strata BUT they are quite often referred to as: Brothel Creepers.

I was wondering if that term could be used in your next song.

Additionally, perhaps, in an international/intergalactic sorta way you could introduce the term FLUMMARY.  That would be good.  The use of such a term would clearly indicate to all on this planet, and possibly to those who are not on this planet, how totally unbiased you are.

I think even the more unusual types of people, in somewhere like that place, you know the one where strange people chase mooses around and have a Singing Mountie from Banff (to F Troop I defer), even them.

I and many others look forward to your next album.  Presuming of course that:

a.  You are still alive, and

b.  You still enjoy singing.

All the best and I hope this short not of appreciation finds you happy, rotund (as usual) and still with a shaven head.

Regards,

Wombat

THE BOOK OF EASTWOOD
Matthew 5:24

And Matthew went out to the desert, seeking a prophet to tell of the great one (that would be Eastwood). His walk took him to a village, where men were men and sheep were scared. It was in this village that he found a man, mocha in complexion and manly in build. And he questioned the man...

"Sir, I have been sent to find a prophet, bdc28, do you know of him?"

The chiseled man answered "We all know of him, why do you seek him?"

Matthew continued "I have had a question...one of great importance to me, that only he can answer. It was prophecy that I meet him here, it was written in the book of the UNFORGIVEN."

The manly man continued "You understand the consequence of seeing his face, yes? That he who looks upon the face of the man called bdc28, is forever changed and never to look back upon life with the same paradigm again".

Matthew said he understood the sacrifice...and was willing to make it, too finally know the truth.

The heavily muscular man looked him over once more...to see if his countenance was strong and pure. He then stood and led Matthew to the small town of CALLAHAN, where he was told to sit on a rock and wait.

As Matthew sat....he saw a cloaked figure come from the desert heat...walking with slow but unsure steps. Matthew turned his back to the figure, hoping it would be he that he sought. The cloaked figure walked to the rock that Matthew sat...and said unto he "I am here, the one you seek, bdc28". Matthew said "I dont believe ye, I have been told to see your face to be sure".

Bdc pleaded "Those who see my face are forever changed...it is not the choice of the wise to see me". Matthew pleaded "But I must see ye, to be sure you are the divine, before I ask my sacred question".

BDC waivered...and finally succumbed "So shall it be"...removing his cloak from his face, revealing himself for all to see. It was then that Matthew turned to see him, and stared hard at the countenance that was he was warned not to see. After a long pause, bdc finally said.....

"GOD DAAAAAAMN" to which Matthew said "THATS RIGHT @#!hole, all that mystique didnt work. You owe me money from the Redskins/NY GIANTS game. Oh what , you think I wouldnt find you? WHERE IS MY TWENTY????"

He has returned.

He has returned.

Just then, a darkness fell over the sacred land as the wind suddenly and frenetically swirled over the mountainous terrain. In the distance, elk stopped in their tracks, bison glanced upward, and even the sheep felt a deep-seated fear unlike anything they'd ever known. bdc28 and Matthew looked at each other and uttered the only explanation for the phenomenon: "KC."

"That's right!" came a voice from the Heavens. "Haven't I warned you boys about using foul language and waging bets in the sacred land of Callahan?!!!"

bdc28 and Matthew simultaneously pointed at the other and exclaimed "He started it!"

The heavens thundered with KC's rage. Thunderbolts and Lightfoots were dashed from the sky as Her words rained down on them: "Silencia varsobgood!  Animanon ye snitzelmackie doph ist achschniel!!"

There was a long silence as bdc28 and Matthew contemplated her words. Finally, bdc28 broke the silence, "Matt, did you bring your KC to Modern English translating dictionary?"

"Left it on the dresser."

KC sighed "Why do I waste my time dealing with cockscomb of this sort?"

Matthew and bdc28 grinned proudly.

KC abruptly spoke, "Enough! The penance for your sins shall be fifteen viewings of Paint Your Wagon, and five viewings of City Heat."

"NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!" they cried in unison.

"Or...." KC continued, "I shall send you off to a land of milk and honey, but where you will find not a trace of NFL football for the rest of the season. This land is known as the Land of Conan."

bdc28 and Matthew contemplated their fate.

"Be there babes in the Land of Conan?" bdc28 inquired.

"And if not... be there sheep?" Matthew asked.

"I can't take anymore! Be gone with you both!" KC thundered as she cast out a finger from the heavens launching Matthew and bdc28 toward the Land of Conan.

As they sailed over the sea toward their destination at The Land of Conan, legend has it that Matthew was overheard saying to bdc28, "Even if the place where we're headed isn't quite as wondrous as the place we left behind, it sure is good to have you around again, friend."

Just then, the sea swallowed them up, and KC was heard laughing overhead....

Matt that was a wonderful story.

My friend wrote this today during our class.  Shows how obvious I am about really liking Clint.

Quote
There once was a girl named Chessie.  She was a very nice girl, but she had a problem.  And that problem was Clint Eastwood.  She found his wrinkled age spots oddly attractive, but he was 138 years older than she was, and in this country that is considered illegal.  So, what was a 16-year-old girl with a disgusting fetish to do?

Why, stalk Clint Eastwood, of course.  And make him see that he should leave his wife and seven children and run away to Timbuktu with her.  Chessie, having spent too much time on Clint Eastwood websites, had failed to notice that Timbuktu no longer existed.  So she stole a car and drove to Carmel, determined to find the elusive Clint.

Unfortunately, he had not been having odd dreams about her, as she had about him, and did not think they were cosmically linked.  Instead, he felt they should be forever apart, and filed a restraining order.  Chessie was, however, not to be deterred and continued to stand out side his house and sing “Call the Wind Maria.”

Eventually, Clint Eastwood confronted Chessie and informed her that his entire marriage and, in fact, his entire life was a sham.  He was actually gay and therefore had absolutely no interest in her, with or without the whole stalking thing.  She was still not put off and decided to commit the ultimate act of love and get a sex-change operation.  After many months of taking hormones and a very painful procedure, Chessie Reiss became Chester Reiss.  He returned to Clint Eastwood’s home, only to find that Clint Eastwood had really been lying and wasn’t gay, but it didn’t really matter anyway because upon seeing the hideousness that was Chessie as a man, he had a heart attack and died.  Chester, his dreams permanently dashed, made a paper-mâché Clint who slept in his bed every night.

I worry about my friends...  Alot.  I thought it was random and pointless.   ;D  ::)

Conan,

Why don't you watch a decent game of 'football' like what we play here in Australia.  Either Rugby Union or Rugby League - take your pick !  No pussy pads to protect our skins in The Land Down Under.  And besides Gridiron, or American Football if you prefer, was developed from Rugby Union anyhow !!!

And besides when did the US of A get soft, eh ?  The last Gold Medal from the Olympics for Rugby Union was won by the US in 1920 or 1924 Olympics.  Not sure which one it was.  But now y'all gone soft !!!!!

Ha Ha Ha Ha !!!

PS. Played Rugby Union until I was 38 YO, started when I was 8 YO, and there is nothing wrong with me, with me, with me, with me, with me

  Though I don't watch it, there is nothing wrong with Rugby or Australian Rules Football.  Its pretty good stuff actually.  I was referring to soccer, which ranks somewhere between team Ping Pong and fast walk marathons on the "must watch scale".
  I was in Hong Kong a few years ago on business during the Sevens tournament; man after seeing those nutball, psycho fans I'm too scared to make fun of Rugby.
 
  I'll grant you a get-out-of-Conan-witty-retort pass on the "pussy pads to protect skins" and "gone soft" comments because you were under the impression I was dogging Rugby or Aussie sports.

  I swear man, half of the people in an average NASCAR crowd have those ridiculous "beer holder" slurpee hats.  The other half either have a camo hat or maybe even a hybrid camoflauge "beer slurpee" hat.   Actually, some of the drivers probably have them as well :)

  I swear man, half of the people in an average NASCAR crowd have those ridiculous "beer holder" slurpee hats.  The other half either have a camo hat or maybe even a hybrid camoflauge "beer slurpee" hat.   Actually, some of the drivers probably have them as well :)

Yep.... you just want to get me mad don't you Conan?  :D

God how I have missed the flummary of this board.

There was alot of truth to that story. See I always end up getting to do some life thing "productive", to which Matt calls me back and says, "Hey, ****,  do you know you havent even become a full member yet? GET TO POSTIN dude!!"

The part about the sheep? Cant say if its fiction or not...all I will say is talk to Matt about that.

Oh, and wait until the new version of CSI comes out. Its called CSI: Interoffice crimes. Its about this team of supply clerks that find a international office supply crime ring, and begin the great manhunt to find them.

Fortunately... there wound up being no shortage of babes in the Land of Conan. Sheep are a good backup, but definitely a second choice. It was only on those few occasions when I made the mistake of wearing my Barry Gibb white disco pants that I struck out with the locals, and had to resort to the less outspoken breed. Actually...

WKC and Vik,

Deeeppp - hmmmm - reminds me of Homer Simpson when he drools over "Chocolaaatttteeee" !!!  Ha Ha Ha

Now is wasting time pointless ?  Well Ms Vik that is a D&M question and one I think we all should address, in particular WKC, as WKC appears to be a deeeep thinker.

Now time is endless, for we cannot define the start of time nor predict when it will end therefore to our constrained minds, which are bound by our cranial bones, time can only be endless.  But if time is endless is it pointless ?  Well I would have to say no because to the individual time alive is very pointful.  To time itself it may be pointless as time cannot comment on itself - or can it ??  That is a question I cannot answer at this point in time !

Each of us has a 'time' on this earth and that time is limited.  What we do with that time is up to us therefore if we use our time to post on the Endless, Pointless Thread on the Clint site then that is our choice.

Therefore it could not in that instance be pointless.  In the eyes of some it may appear pointless and I myself have questioned myself, all the time, on that very timeless point !  But it is my time and therefore it cannot be pointless because I am me and I feel I am not pointless.

But then again there are others out THERE that DO think I am pointless and for those such a posting as this is pointless.  But the time involved, I say again is MY TIME so it ain't POINTLESS - I think - maybe - perhaps - now I am getting confused, as I do, all the time, when I think about the time continum and like subjects.

And what seemed totally pointful may now have become relatively pointless.  Oft times I think I used to be indecieve but now I am not sure at all, anytime !!!

I hope that helps you Ms Vik !!!!

Wombat (I think !!)

No, no, no, nooooooooooooo - not the vegemite song !  Although I must admit I do have that firmly imprinted on my brain.  And every morning when I have vege on my toast it has (the song that is) to pop into my head and bounce around in all the space between my ears for a minute or so !!!

How about Mickey Mouse Club !!  And the way it was sung at the end of: Full Metal Jacket.  This topic has been briefly touched on before but the Endless, Pointless Thread seems to be lagging of late.  It needs a good old kick along.

I did see the Master Moonshiner of the Jack Daniels Whisky Factory on TV this  morning. He is the Sixth only !!!  Jack being No: 1.  And the factory is in a Dry County (Linchenburg, I think) - amazing.  And The Master Moonshiner said it was all to do with the Tennesee water.  Very interesting it was.

Just sit right back and you'll hear a tale,
a tale of a fateful trip.
That started from this tropic port,
aboard this tiny ship.
The mate was a mighty sailin' man,
the skipper brave and sure.
Five passengers set sail that day,
for a three hour tour, a three hour tour………
The weather started getting rough,
the tiny ship was tossed.
If not for the courage of the fearless crew,
the Minnow would be lost; the Minnow would be lost.
The ship took ground on the shore of this uncharted desert isle,
with Gilligan, the Skipper too,
the Millionaire, and his Wife,
the Movie Star, the Professor and Mary Ann,
here on Gilligan's Isle.

wkc - the sherlock holmes of clinteastwood.org  ;)
elementary my dear clint followers


Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson went on a camping trip. After a good meal and a bottle of wine they lay down for the night, and went to sleep.

Some hours later, Holmes awoke and nudged his faithful friend.

"Watson, look up at the sky and tell me what you see."

Watson replied, "I see millions of stars."

"What does that tell you?"

Watson pondered for a minute.

"Astronomically, it tells me that there are millions of galaxies and potentially billions of planets."
"Astrologically, I observe that Saturn is in Leo."
"Horologically, I deduce that the time is approximately a quarter past three."
"Theologically, I can see that God is all powerful and that we are small and insignificant."
"Meteorologically, I suspect that we will have a beautiful day tomorrow."
"What does it tell you, Holmes?"

Holmes was silent for a minute, then spoke: "Watson, you tit. Some bastard has stolen our tent."


and another

Sherlock Holmes & Dr. Watson were on safari, trekking through the jungle when Watson noted, scrutinized and classified a here-to-fore unrecorded phenomenon: a large, warm, moist pile of ... something. A few yards down the elephant trail, Watson encountered another of these new finds. Then another. Then another.
"I say, Holmes, what do you make of these?" Watson inquired.

And the sleuth replied, "Alimentary, my Dear Watson, alimentary."

When they got back to London, Watson and Holmes made their way back to Baker Street. Standing outside number 221B, Holmes asked Watson if he had noticed if anything had changed while they had been away. Watson stared at the building for a long, long time before exclaiming.

"Good Lord, Holmes! Mrs Hudson's had the house repainted."

"Exactly, Watson. And what do you deduce from this redecoration?"

Another five minutes passed whilst Watson pondered the freshly painted building.

"Holmes, why on earth has she painted all of the windows red, but painted the door bright yellow?"

"Lemon entry, my dear Watson."

Yes, The Granny (60 + YO) did an amazing thing.  The croc was 4.2 m long !!!

However, today's papers have been criticising the people for camping where they did.  One headline: Stupid crocs harm even stupider humans.  One paper interviews four people on the street daily and asks them a question about a current event (all are asked the same question).  Today's was whether the croc should have been shot or not.  All four said NO !!!  The people shouldn't have been camping where they were.

I am inclined to agree.  If you camp on a beach next to an area where fish heads and crab pots are emptied and you camp on the beach not far from the water AND YOU KNOW THE AREA IS FULL OF CROCS (SIGNS EVERYWHERE) !!  I mean - HELLO !  You are asking to be interruppted during the night by an partly evolved dinosaur - are you not ?

I need your help here and perhaps They could recall this one also:

"Let me tell you a story about a man name Jed, Poor mountainer but he kept his Family fed, then one day he was shooting for some food, and up through the ground came a bubbling crude ! Oil that is Texas Tea, Black Gold.

Well the first thing you know Old Jed's a millionaire.  And the Kin Folk said get on outa here.  California is the place you oughta be so he packed up his truck and moved to Beverley, Hills that is swimming pools and movie stars THE BEVERLEY HILLBILLIES !"

How is that ?  Off the top of my head !  Pretty close, eh ?

I was/am a big fan of Jed and his Family: Granny, Ellie-May and Jethro.  Mr Drysdale was a card and his Secretary Miss Miss Miss ???????? AAAAAAAAAHHHHHHH.  Can't recall her name at this moment in time.

Anyone care to fill in the gaps ?

Title: Re: THE ENDLESS, POINTLESS thread
Post by: Wombat on October 17, 2004, 05:44:09 AM
Vik,

It was comedy plus !!  It was the story of a Family of Hillbillies who struck it rich by finding oil on their property in 'them mount'ins' so they, as a Family, moved to Beverley Hills - California.

They had an old bomb truck, Jethro, who was played by Max Baer, was the older boy (nephew) whom seemed to be missing a few 'sheep in the top paddock', Ellie-May a goodlooking blonde with an affiliation with ALL critters (need I say more), Granny who was still making possum pie and wanting to shoot Indians and stoic Jed who tried to keep it all together !!

A post is too short to explain it all - but it was very well done and very, very pre-Croc Dundee in LA !!  But the same scenario - Hill Folk getting it on with the City Slickers !!

Yes, Warnie has got the world record for the total number of wickets taken - at the moment.  India has helped him achieve that goal.  But it will be interesting to see how long his record lasts.  I believe there are a number of bowlers snapping at his heels.

Me - not  a great cricket fan.  One Day - OK; but the rest too long for me.

Regards,

Wombat

Reportedly, I have no evidence but the news, our Mr Warne has a bad habit of sending txt messages that could be classed as risque.  However, one such attempt in Siouth Africa had tyhe woman who complained in court on fraud charges.  And the other incident invovled a Brit female.

Txt only as I understand it.  And all hearsay.

Now there is a point for this pointless thread: Truth in Reporting by Journalists.

Is there such a thing ?  Or are truth and journalists on a par with politicians and truth ?

So right, Conan. If I tried to name an act that was harder to listen to, and there are many bad ones out there, I couldn't come up with one that's harder to listen to than The Chipmunks.

In addition to Elvis, my other favorite Christmas artist is probably Dean Martin or Harry Connick Jr.  :)

Quote
We've often discussed our favorite Clint Eastwood movie quotes, but what are your favorite quotes from the other characters in his films?

As many of you know, I have a web page for Favorite Clint Eastwood Movie Quotes. I'd like to expand the page to include really great quotes that were said by other characters in his movies. Lone Watie and Tuco have some great ones, and I'm sure there's many others from the other characters. Add your favorites here, and I'll add them to my site. But please do me one little favor... if this thread gets a lot of responses, it would be a lot of work for me to check every quote listed for accuracy, so if you're going to post a quote, please check and make sure you have it right. And no copying off the IMDb... many of those are wrong, and I want my site to be better than that.   If you can't check the movie, please add a note explaining that you don't have the movie to check... I wouldn't mind checking any that couldn't be verified by the poster. Thanks everyone.

I'll start us off with a Lone Watie and a Tuco:

Quote:
LONE WATIE:  I guess you were right. I ain't that old after all.

Quote:
TUCO:  I'm looking for the owner of that horse. He's tall, blonde, he smokes a cigar, and he's a pig!

the interview was great though and really summed up the whole SW franchise which i reckon Lucas just pilfered from old comics and novels and myths
