I have to say that this comment elicited one reaction from me

Apparently Dana Perino doesn't pay attention to what the people she works for does over there on Pennsylvania Avenue.
She said that the administration is “deeply disappointed” by the measure, which suspends the country’s constitution, and believes it is never “reasonable” to “restrict constitutional freedoms in the name of fighting terrorism”:

Q: Is it ever reasonable to restrict constitutional freedoms in the name of fighting terrorism?

MS. PERINO: In our opinion, no.

This brought on only one response from me, and I think it's appropriate...

Change Your Links

like seriously wtf?! is up and running right now. Yes, it's still on blogger but that is only until the website is completed. In the meantime, enjoy our new community blog for lack of a better term.

College Football is almost upon us

Which of course means the discussion of a playoff system is about to come around once again, and this time I believe I have a solution. They key to this is trying to appease everyone under the sun. The folks who say they need to study, the people who want the playoffs, and the BCS system.

They key to this is winning your conference championship. You are not eligible unless you won your conference championship. Yes, I know this will piss off Big 12, Big 10 and SEC fans but hey, win your championship and you can't complain.

There are eight seeds in this playoff system, and the first round happens the next week after conference championship games. Now the Big East, ACC, Big 12, Big 10, SEC and Pac 10 all get a bid into this. There are six other conferences (of sorts) left. You put the WAC, Sun Belt and MAC in one slot with the MWC, Conference USA and Independents in another. Now the conference champion with the highest BCS ranking between those conferences are entered into the playoff system. The seeding is also based on the BCS system. So for example, this would have been last year's seeds.
1.Ohio St
4.Notre Dame
6.Boise St
8.Wake Forest

You have the first round games directly after conference championships at the higher seeds home stadium. The semifinals you alternate every year between the current BCS Bowls. The final game, you have take place where they would like to have the plus one game, so a week after new years. That way those teams who didn't make it to the semis can still have a bowl game. Now the final game, I don't know if it should be a bowl game, or at the higher seeds home stadium. I know the initial reaction will be a bowl, but I think it would be exciting to have it in a team's home stadium at the same time. So last year's playoffs would have looked like so...
Ohio St vs Wake Forest
Boise St vs Florida
Louisville vs Notre Dame
Oklahoma vs USC

I like this set up, it gives the smaller teams a chance at the title and puts importance once again on the conference championship. I'm sorry, we don't need another non-conference champion (see Oklahoma or was it Nebraska?) in a National Championship game. Yes, Michigan, LSU, you wouldn't have been involved last year. Win your conference and you would have.

So, thoughts? Possible problems that could arise? Any suggestions?

Has it really been that long?

The month of July flew right by me didn't it? I mean it's gone by so quickly Anita comes home from Houston in four days. Once my muse has returned, will this cause me to write again? Undoubtedly, but there has been some reason as to why I have been gone lately.

It started a few weeks ago with a spark inside the ole noggin, and it slowly grew into a blazing brush fire that threatened Malibu. Like my great-grandfather, who survived 7 Malibu fires in the hills during his forty plus years living there in the same house, I stood strong and was not consumed by the flames licking at my face.

I read blogs, lots of them, and they all tend to have their specific niches in the world whether it's celebrity, political, sports, weirdness, geekery, or entertainment, they all have their specialty. Well, this fireball began growing with my friends and I and we have decided to open your one stop shop of blogery. It will be a blog that shall cover every spectrum you can imagine, save for things like Paris Hilton and Britney Spears, we'll leave that for the "news" channels. We have a good number of skilled writers and should be opening the doors to our brothel fairly shortly.

Ironically it all started a few months back when one of our friends was randomly putting in domain names to see if they were available, and one was and he HAD to buy it. So, hopefully, sometime in August we will introduce you all to

Top Ten Movie Badasses: Single Movie Edition

Much like yesterday's list, except this one the character has only been in one movie. Picking a number one on this list was more difficult then it was yesterday, no surprise there. You only get one shot at seeing the character and then nothing. There were great choices for this list, in the end only ten could make it. To clarify, Khan Noonan Singh did not make this list since he was on the TV show as well.

Honorable Mention
Gunny Highway (Clint Eastwood) Heartbreak Ridge
Seth Gecko (George Clooney) From Dusk Till Dawn
Vic Vega/Mr. Blonde (Michael Madsen) Reservoir Dogs
V (Hugo Weaving) V For Vendetta
Tony Montana (Al Pacino) Scarface
Judge Roy Bean (Paul Newman) The Life And Times of Judge Roy Bean
Marv (Mickey Rooney) Sin City

10. Creasy (Denzel Washington) Man on Fire-When it comes to Denzel I am a flip flopper. Some of his stuff I absolutely love (see Man On Fire) and other stuff I'm not as impressed as other people are (see Training Day). Honestly I thought he was much better in Man on fire then he was in Training Day. Hell, Wayne Brady was better at playing that character on The Chapelle Show. The man is the ultimate bad ass, get gunned down, the lil girl is kidnapped and he works his way back up the criminal chain and ends up rescuing the girl and giving his own life in the process, bad ass.

9. Mani (Mark Dacascos) Brotherhood of the Wolf-The movie opens up with Mani kicking some serious French ass. Hey, now I'm not trying to puff up my shirt, but you see how one Native American just kicked an entire French police undercover unit's ass? He then fights a lion wearing nothing but his tattoos and holding a tomahawk. The guy is only taken down by a back shooting coward, after he has whooped everyone's ass that there is to whoop. Just on top of it, his manliness is so much that the French whores don't know what to do when confronted with a REAL man, not a french man. He shows them his superior...skill...and, well we shall call it his magical ability. Tattoos rock, tomahawks rock, putting racist French aristocrats in their place rocks, kicking France's ass single handedly rocks. Sure, he lets his French brother get in on the action on occasion, but just to amuse himself to see how he attempts to copy his bad assery.

8. Maximus (Russell Crowe) Gladiator-Roman general who took on the barbarian, well German, hordes. May have been the last time Italy stood up to Germany, even if they made it sound like Maximus may have been Spanish, but historically he would have been given those lands so maybe just his wife is. Regardless of that, he escape execution, becomes a slave and begins kicking ass in front of people the likes that has not been seen since Bruiser Brody. Gets called up to the big time, to perform in front of rome, the senators, the emperor and the emperor's sister who we're pretty sure he banged before he got married. From there he takes down Andre The Giant and Tigers at the same time, gets a country to revolt against it's leader with a simple turn, and in the end overcomes tyranny while poisoned.

7. Kazuo Kiriyama (Masanobu Ando) Battle Royale-How bat shit crazy does one have to be to volunteer for a game of death? Well, in the books he didn't exactly volunteer, but he definitely was made for For those of you who don't know or haven't seen the movie, basically a high school class is put on an island and they have three days to kill each other until only one survives. I could have gone with Kawada since this was his second time playing the game, but he limps about at the end. Kiriyama continues to fight, even when he becomes blind. Hell, I could have put Noriko as she was without a doubt the most fucked up person in the entire flick.

6. William Wallace (Mel Gibson) Braveheart-Him, this can't be the first place person I am prettier then this man. Yes, William Wallace, the character that had us yelling freedom for a decade. Now if only I could get my hands on some REAL woad, things would get interesting. Course, having woad and a broadsword here in DC probably wouldn't be the smartest of ideas, as I would likely get myself and others killed in my drugged insanity. He had to see everyone he ever loved die, was betrayed by the man he believed should be king, exacted revenge with a dish best served cold, and wasn't even phased by torture. He would be our administration's worst nightmare at Gitmo that's without a doubt. I wish there were more people in our country that had the kind of passion and dedication to rebel while standing in front of such obvious tyranny and cruelty.

5. King Leonidas (Gerard Butler) 300-A man much in the same mold as William Wallace, and Maximus. Hell, I think I remember a friend of mine saying that Leonidas reminded him of the bastard child of Maximus and William Wallace. I don't think it was too far off, they were fighting against tyranny and for freedom (sort of but it's a movie folks not a history lesson). He and his 300 kicked some ultimate ass against a bunch of Persians and their conquered nations. A man fighting for his country will fight much harder and risk more then a man forced to fight for a cause he does not believe because if he doesn't he and his family will suffer their ruler's wrath. Even when getting pelted by thousands of arrows, he managed to keep his word and make Xerxes bleed. Even Ty Cobb couldn't hit a shot like that.

4. Jules Winfield (Samuel L. Jackson) Pulp Fiction- You know, I could end this all in one sentence and reference his wallet. I mean, I don't need to look any farther then his wallet to know that he is one Bad Ass Mother Fucker. He doesn't blink in the eye of a gun, hell he relishes seeing a gun in his face. Just makes the blood in his veins that much colder. He also isn't stupid and realizes when a miracle happens. He gets the job done, is able to compromise with a resisting force, something Congress can't do, and come on, that's the best fro since Kareem. Besides, he's the mother fucking king of foot rubs.

3. Tyler Durden (Brad Pitt) Fight Club-First you must know, not fear but know that some day you are going to die. Until then, you are useless to me. Hell, most of you who think that you're going to live forever are completely useless to me. Sorry folks, you can have those extra five years, I do not fear death for I will go stand before Crom and know the Riddle of Steel. Tyler Durden knew this, he created an entire underground fight network based on the riddle. From there he branched out into one of the greatest organizations known to man, Project Mayhem. In the end you all know that you wish Project Mayhem had really taken out all those credit card companies and their records and started us all over with a clean slate.

2. Lee (Bruce Lee) Enter The Dragon-Do I need to say anything to justify Bruce Lee's position here? Now, there might be an argument over if it should be this or Bruce Lee from Game of Death. I'll grant you that he did fight Kareem in Game of Death, but I think overall Dragon is the better movie and as such Lee is selected over Billy Lo. This character is great, just when you think he's kicked as much ass there possibly is, more people come out of the wood work and suddenly there is fresh ass for Lee's grinder. Sure, he took on John Saxon, but the guy tried standing up to Freddy Krueger once. After standing up to Bruce Lee, Freddy was a cake walk...even if Freddy killed him. Lee even made small work of the man who almost killed Jean Claude Van Dam, so what more is there to say? Bruce Lee, greatest martial arts movie star of all time.

1. Bill Munny (Clint Eastwood) Unforgiven-I'm sure this comes to a surprise to many of you. Hell, many were probably thinking I would have put Wallace or Leonidas here. Maybe even Daniel LaRusso, but sadly that's a multiple movie character. I put Bill Munny because next to The Man With No Name, this is the most bad ass character Eastwood has ever played. Hell, I even wrestled with putting The Stranger from High Plains Drifter and Gunny Highway from Heartbreak Ridge into this top ten. This very well may make Clint Eastwood my ultimate movie bad ass. Actually, yes, I'm declaring here and now that Clint Eastwood is Hollywood's Ultimate Movie Bad Ass. Between Harry Callahan, The Man With No Name, every western and military movie, it may not get more bad ass then Clint Eastwood.

My apologies

I realize I forgot some fairly important people when I made the list yesterday. I mean come on, where is Dirty Harry? Hell, I even forgot Rooster Cogburn on that list. So, in the end, my apologies, I'm trying to do better today with the single movie list.

Top Ten Movie Badasses: Plural Movie Edition

You may be asking yourself, plural movie edition? Yes, to qualify for this list the character has had to have appeared in more then one movie. For example, William Wallace is not eligible, he's been in one flick. El Mariachi however has been in three, he is completely eligible, and in this list as well. Yes, watching Live Free or Die Hard inspired this last night and now I bring it to you.

Honorable Mention
Snake Plisken (Kurt Russell) Escape Series
Richard B. Riddick (Vin Diesel) Pitch Black Series
Gabriel (Christopher Walken) The Prophecy Series
Aragorn (Viggo Mortenson) Lord of the Rings Trilogy
Ash (Bruce Campbell) Evil Dead Trilogy
Mad Max (Mel Gibson) Mad Max Series

10. The Bride (Uma Thurman) Kill Bill 1&2-Didn't expect to see a woman on this list did you? The woman took down every single obstacle that came in front of her, was reunited with her child that she didn't even know existed and word has it that this is not the last of The Bride, we very well may see much more of her and her daughter in the near future if the studios get their way.

9. Conan the Cimmerian (Arnold Schwarzenegger) Conan Series -I had to put the King of Kings on this list, how could I not? I may not have the courage to mock Crom, but this was Arnold at his best. Be it Barbarian or Destroyer, Conan is definitely the cock of the walk. I mean, he beheaded James Earl Jones in front of all his followers. How can you not get behind a warrior who answers what is best in life with, "To crush your enemies, to see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentations of their women." Now THAT is truly bad ass.

8. Sergeant Martin Riggs (Mel Gibson) Lethal Weapon Series-You all know you have a secret love for the Lethal Weapon series. It was a great blend of action and comedy and reinvented the buddy comedy/action movie. Riggs was insane, loved getting out of a straight jacket, eating dog food, harassing the psychiatrist, and driving his partner up the wall. He over came ever romantic obstacle he came across (see women keep dying on him) to finally knock up Rene Russo. He took on every comer, got his ass kicked by Jet Li, and still somehow managed to walk away.

7. Ellen Ripley (Sigourney Weaver) Alien Series-TWO women on this list, see you REALLY didn't see that coming. I'm sorry boys, but men don't have the corner on the market when it comes to bad assery. Ellen Ripley has blown up a spaceship, nuked a planet, turned convicts around, all the while doing a better the job then the Marine Corps, HOO-RAH! Sure, she started slow, but who can deny that it is hard to find someone who kicked more ass the last twenty minutes of movie like she did in Aliens. I'm not going to hold Alien Resurrection against her, technically that wasn't her, that was a clone.

6. Han Solo (Harrison Ford) Star Wars Trilogy-Of course Han Solo has to make it onto this list. Come on, didn't we all want to be Han Solo growing up? No one cared about being Luke Skywalker, we all wanted to be Han Solo because he was cool and in the end got the girl. The man survived becoming a rock slab for crying out loud! He beat Colt 45 at a game a cards and got the best starship in the universe this side of 1990. His best friend is a wookie, and apparently only he can understand him, how much more bad ass can you get? Oh, if it wasn't for him the Death Star never would have been blown up, both times.

5. El Mariachi (Antonio Banderas/Carlos Gallardo) El Mariachi Trilogy-The only character on this list that was played by two separate actors, one must truly be bad ass to accomplish that. Of course you saw the original actor in Desperado as one of his friends, but Antonio is still what most people think about when it comes to El Mariachi. He exudes that coolness that this character wouldn't be half as fun without. I mean the man romanced Salmea Hayek for crying out loud, all the while having to fight Danny Trejo who was making him into a pin cushion with throwing knives. He had to take down his own brother and William Dafoe, do you need more evidence? Ok, fine, how many of you STILL to this day want a guitar case full of guns?

4. The Man With No Name (Clint Eastwood) Man With No Name Trilogy-He was called by something different in each film, but it has always been refereed to as the man with no name. It has been said that The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly is one of the most influential movies of all time. Without a doubt it is probably the most influential western of all time, at least with the current directors in Hollywood. It currently ranks as the top rated action film on IMDB. The man was as cold as ice, smooth and calculating, and always managed to pull something out of his ass. From the modified bullet proof vest to the rock with nothing written on it, the man always has a plan.

3. John McClane (Bruce Willis) Die Hard Series-The man was what we made the mold of Jack Bauer after, a one man army against terrorist, terrorism, and anything that threatens life, liberty, and the right to kick ass! He has blown up an office building, demolished a major airport, walked around Harlem with his life on the line, and saved the US from going into the darkages. All the while he has had to deal with a wife who doesn't appreciate his heroics and estranged children, no matter how many times he saves their collective asses. The guy was snark before the term was even coined, brought the trash talking during the fight to a whole new level that only Deadpool can reach.

2. Indiana Jones (Harrison Ford) Indiana Jones Series-Yes, the good doctor of archeology comes in number two. I wonder who it could be who has beaten a man who brought whips into style so much a song was written about it. The man smart enough to bring a gun to a sword fight, was able to prevent his heart being taken out of his chest, and has fucked every single hot female in the 40s. His is also a one man army against the Third Reich, had the balls to get Hitler's autograph, and still ruin all his plans. You know how much money that baby is worth now on eBay, those Nazi product folks would love that shit, sadly you can't have it, it leads to the Holy Grail. He didn't need an army of knights to find it like Arthur, this bookworm found it with the help of a book. Also, let us not forget an important part, Jesus found him worthy and he chose wisely.

1. Bond, James Bond (Sean Connery/Roger Moore/Timothy Dalton/Pierce Brosnan/Daniel Craig/George Lazenby) Bond Films-Of course the ultimate bad ass of all time is James Bond, how can it not be? We don't need to talk about the shear numbers of Bond films there are, let us now discuss what we can consider. For me, other then Sean Connery and Daniel Craig, the others can all blow. Roger Moore never looked the part to me, he always seemed too soft. Dalton definitely wasn't pretty enough, I mean who could buy him getting any kind of woman? Brosnan was too pretty, I could buy the woman part, just not the action hero aspect of it all. Lazenby, eh who cares, has anyone actually ever watched that movie anyways? Now Daniel Craig, he looks like he could fuck any woman and rip your throat out at the same time. Then of course, there is the man who is and always will be Bond to us, Sean Connery. Does anything else really need to be said?

John F'N McClane

I will start off by saying John McClane is one of my favorite characters of all time when it comes to cinema. Don't know why, maybe it was my impressionable youth when I saw my Die Hard for the first time, all I know is when I cried during Armageddon it wasn't because that character died, it was because I was thinking about John McClane.

Going into the fourth installment I have been very skeptical. I was NOT a fan of the third one, bigger doesn't always mean better. I was a fan of the centralized locations of the first two movies, it just works better. I don't even care if you add Samuel L. mother fuckin Jackson to the movie, it just didn't work for me. It also apparently didn't work too well for the audience either as it definitely didn't do as well as the previous two movies. With all that said, I was definitely skeptical of Live Free or Die Hard.

I can gladly say all my hesitation about the fourth movie was unwarranted, it was a kick ass flick.

Yeah, it's a bigger scale and it has a few ridiculous stunts, but so does every Die Hard movie. I thought Justin Long added a great deal to this flick and I don't know if it would have been enjoyable without that character. Kevin Smith was great as the "jedi", not saying too much don't want to ruin anything or give away too much spoiler wise, but everyone on this film just seemed to click. It wasn't a case like some movies where you question why that person was cast for a certain role, no, I think each and every part was chosen right, and they all worked like a well oiled machine.

I was worried that a much older Bruce Willis would bring down the role, it did not. That in turn gives me hope when it comes to the new Indy flick. If Bruce Willis can make a believer out of you at his age, Harrison can do the same with Dr. Jones. There was also definite hotness going on in this flick as well. I've had a thing for Mary Elizabeth Winstead since I saw Sky High and she played the part of Lucy McClane perfectly. She gave that attitude that papa has very well, and I bought it, which is always important for me to get a movie to work.

Timothy Olyphant, I was worried about his casting because he just gave off the prick vibe in almost every role I've ever seen him in. You probably know him best as the porn producer in The Girl Next Door. That being said, he also makes it work. That vibe works very well with that character, sure he's no Hanz Gruber, but no one really is are they?

In the end, this was a fun entertaining ride. If you just need some action to pump into your bloodstream, with decent enough acting that doesn't make you as nauseous as most actions movies, this is the movie to go see. You have your choice of this and Sicko this weekend, which I'm still gonna see. Thankfully Live Free or Die Hard came out yesterday and so there is no conflict, just a biding of time till Transformers.
