Uber Crazy Challenge Must Be Ignored

So Shit and Grits is abuzzed with news that Ranger Buddy is going to run with the bulls. Everyone is grilling me about it, like I'd know why????! But I do know that he's serious...he'd bought tickets and booked some kind of five-star hotel stay in Portugal that costs a million dollars a night, or something like that. Then, afterwards, Spain.

Anyway, RB has been issueing some kind of coded challenge to me. Take the following video as a parody of a conversation he and I had. I'm the gentleman on the left and he's the one on the right. Substitute certain words in the dialogue: When the gent on the right offers the gent on the left a yacht, a mansion, etc...replace with a motorcycle, a whole room with books, a thousand dollars' worth of Ichiban products. The mangoes, however, stay ;-).




I'm not kidding, the above conversation was remarkably similar in tone to the one I had. Yes, I did tell Ranger Buddy that I viewed running with the bulls equivalent to certain death. RB thought about it a moment and said, with equal seriousness, "How about putting your head in a lion's mouth?"

I do think he has gone mad....And I'm amused that he thinks I'm crazy enough to join him. Yeah, skydiving. Yeah, hanging upside down from a three-storey building with him holding to my foot. Yeah, walking into a biker bar in the middle of redneck territory. But running with the bulls? Nope. No, no, no, no, no. Being chased by 3000lb bulls up a narrow cobblestone street with a few hundred other drunken idiots is not my idea of adrenaline fun.

***********

Also, I saw Moonlight, the new vampire TV show, for the first time last night. Interesting, but not quite sure whether I will be watching it weekly. Cool to see a vampire that's only sixty years old and not hundreds, AND from 1950s USA and not 1700s Ireland/France/exotic island. The two male vampires' quick and dry repartee was sort of like the Supernatural brothers, wasn't it?

However, I'm getting tired of the now-fashionable protagonist voiceover, giving a beginning, or a comment, or an ending thought. It's called LAZY WRITING, folks. I first noticed it in Desperate Housewives, with the voiceover of a dead person. It was unique then, and gave a sense of mystery to the episodes. Then it's in a dozen other shows--Men In Trees, Pushing Up Daisies, Grey's Anatomy--somebody's internal monologue, telling, telling, telling, substituting dialogue with emo-looks from the characters as mood music tricks the audience. Lazy, lazy, lazy.

Okay, didn't mean to rant today. Back to Moonlight, the newest vampire TV show. He's no Angel, for sure. The angst and the anger? Not edgy enough. And the comic timing with deadpan delivery? Nope, he's no Boreanez ;-). But the show's storyline has potential. Any of you caught it on the tube yet?

P/S. In the video above, that's Tim Kang, the guy from the Cingular commercials.

Bear with me while I learn. The first button likes the POST. The second button likes the BLOG site. Please help me by "liking" me. Thanks!

Oh...hell. I know the people in the film. I used to go to school around there. So THIS is what they were up to...

Sure RB will run with the bulls. Let's see hit a Vera Wang sample sale. THEN he will know fear. Dude. Brides are VICIOUS!

You know Tim Kang? Wow.

Well, I don't think we can get RB excited about bridal wear over bull running, SQ!
