Where is THIS cop/buddy movie. People in Hollywood have no imagination anymore because the movie I have in my head, right now, with these two, would be AWESOME. Just let them be themselves, put them on the run from a Mexican drug cartel, add a ton of real life but non-credited people (like they did with Bill Murray in Zombieland) give Slash a cool tag line (and a McGyver like genius for getting out of trouble) and Betty a bazooka (and a habit of going for the nuts whenever she felt threatened), a ton of car chases and explosions, and we got us the biggest hit of Christmas 2010.
Oh and if we needed another reason why Slash is on the side of the angels. Check out the pin he is wearing for an appearance on the 'Tonight Show'. I hope Jay saw it and knew what it meant.
Does anyone remember the cartoon show 'Kid Notorious'? It starred Robert Evans, the producer of 'Chinatown' and 'The Godfather' movies. He played a sorta playboy spy and Slash was his next door neighbor who always solved problems. He also had a cat named 'Puss Puss' who rolled his joints for him. I KNOW I didn't imagine it. Don't look at me like that.
The coolest thing about the cartoon was Evans himself who has one of the greatest voices to listen to (next to Keith David of 'They Live' and 'The Thing' fame). The writers would find someway in every episode to have him say his tag line - "You bet your ass I did". Wicked funny.
I forever stand vigilant to protect this planet from the myriad of forces that are always against us. Be it the octopus, zombies, aliens or the robots my team of human agents, and our feline allies, circle the globe in a never ending struggle for human freedom.
I learn all I can on every subject that interests me. I especially enjoy ancient history because in the past there are valuable lessons to be found. Also, if I ever get my time machine to work properly, it would be good to know a bit about possible destinations and what to expect when I get there.
I greatly appreciate beautiful design. Be it manufactured or found naturally I am fascinated by the process of invention. I am attracted to the unique, the strange, the haunted. I like to share what I find on this blog.
And not let us forget the 'Cephalopod Menace' who, if allowed to, would wrap their tentacles around all that is good and pure in this life and crush it until it remained no more. They are creatures of pure spite. Hate is all they know. Death is all they do. They are our most ruthless and determined enemy.
So we fight. Selena has the celebrity contacts, the cat is ruthless and without pity, Roosevelt's ghost has the experience and I do the wetwork.
Fighting for the future of the planet doesn't have to be a chore, however. We can take the time to appreciate all that is cool in this world even as we cut the octopus into bite sized chunks.
This is the reason there has always been and must forever be, a Cave of Cool. Be sure to wipe your feet before you enter.
