Single Serving Thoughts

The United Airlines safety video guy is Black Billy Bob Thornton. That’s what friends are for lyrics. Minerals, silicon and oxygen, stars are mostly hydrogen which may someday fill your car
Carbon nitrogen hydrogen oxygen.
The ones they call the elements.
The person beside me is filling in a big-5 psychology self report style questionnaire for indoctrination into a church. How about arming them with all the info they need on your way in? Why would you do that?
Now she is totalling her own scores on the back page. So they don't even have to do the data entry. There is some seriously evil shit in the world.
In-flighted Martin Sheen and Sissy Spacek in Badlands. Now I know they never needed to make Natural Born Killers. There is nothing new under the sun.
Ghetto boys: every 20 seconds I be peeking out the window.
I spent the previous week in blue situation rooms punctuated by sports bars and grill meals.
Come in America and sit down. What are the ubiquitous sports screens telling us? Relax, everything is fine, drink up. Look left: football, look right: baseball, look left again: an ad for Geico. No wait, it’s football again.
Then there was a priceline negotiator ad, starring Good William Shatner and Evil William Shatner. Evil William Shatner has a goatee.
1. Super awesome, I get it.
2. But, at first take, I thought that Evil William Shatner was actually Rip Torn
3. How much awesomer would that ad have been if it really were Rip Torn vs William Shatner: THAT episode of Star Trek (or Boston Legal, or whatever he is in now, Shit My Dad Says?) needs to be made.
