-Does anyone else feel old seeing the Christmas Vacation crew, complete with a white-haired Clark Griswold, in an Old Navy commercial? Julliet Lewis looks the same, though. I've always had a thing for her since Natural Born Killers and this obscure Kathryn Bigelow film called Strange Days.
-On this gun control debate, I support the second amendment and all. That being said, I think that there should be a way to make sure guns don't get in the hands of the mentally ill. Just like you are required to take an eye exam before getting a driver's license, you should get a psyche evaluation before being allowed to purchase a gun. Of course, the cowards in Washington that run our country- you know, the ones that just want to chase skirt and get re-elected, will never compromise on this issue. There is zero leadership in congress right now. Their presence in Washington is a disgrace to the rest of us. That being said, they will continue to be re-elected because their opponent will be too afraid to lead and will follow some political playbook that eliminates any chance at someone decent replacing the pretenders that lead our country right now.
-Watching that Amish Mafia show...it is horrendous. On Discovery.
-Saw Lincoln during the weekend. Another great acting job by Daniel Day-Lewis. It was just a tick below what he did in There Will Be Blood and a tick above Gangs of New York. I think both of those actual movies are better than Lincoln as a whole.
-I am going to be in Los Angeles for New Year's Eve. Anybody know of some cool things to do there that night? Staying in Anaheim near Disneyland (Semper Fi Bowl HQ).
-Is Ghostbusters 3 still happening? Ghostbusters 2 is on and they just found out about the river of slime.
-Three overrated 1990s bands/artists- Third Eye Blind, Barenaked Ladies, Foo Fighters
-Three underrated 1990s bands/artists- Big Head Todd and the Monsters, The Cure, Widespread Panic.

The Foo Fighters overrated? You crazy.
Ha! Never got into them. Really liked Nirvana, though.
Must follow. Gorgeous woman who knows more about football and sports than half your friends.
...but I like Third Eye Blind.

I didnt like Gangs of New York
mkillian247 on twitter..... I say a lot of stuff you wont care about.
Most of their songs follow the rythmic pattern of semi-charmed life played at different tempos.
Agree with almost all of this. 1. If I was in congress it would be to exclusively chase tail and 2. Daniel Day Lewis is a beast...him and Willem Dafoe are my favorite actors.

I agree with those. I am really an independent fed up with both parties.
- Foo Fighters is the best live show I've ever seen. And I've seen some live shows.
- Widespread Panic is amazing.

Huddles are for rookies.
Ghostbusters 3 and Wayne's World 3 are 2 movies that have meez very excite
Would be shocked if the NRA went willingly on any gun restrictions, even after this crap. They're too myopic. I agree a psych exam is good. Also good would be restrictions on how easy it is to purchase a firearm at a gun show.
Note: I am an independent, though I did vote for Romney in the last election.
on twitter @Sir_Roflcopter
As do I....My parents listen to Rush all day long and for the life of me I can't figure out why.
This is true. Life is too good for a member of congress or another elected official to risk being kicked out of office.
Quite frankly, I don't think very many of them could survive in the working world, so they are all about surviving in their current state of no consequence and general tomfoolery.
Same here. I sort of felt sorry for Romney because he came across so plastic like robo candidate, but I believe he would have done a good job working with all parties for solutions.
That being said, second term presidents typically are more willing to compromise, so perhaps Obama will.
Phenomenal (It's Slow Motion by Third Eye Blind but for some reason it doesn't recognize a youtube video as a youtube video under the Videos link. While i'm on the subject, that's really dumb by the way that you can only link YouTube videos)

Standing on a hill in my mountain of dreams,
Telling myself it's not as hard as it seems - Led Zeppelin
Really just getting all your off-topic stuff out of the way, huh JC?
Time and change will surely (truly) show
How firm thy friendship ... OHIO!
Music-wise, I was born a decade too late....I'm all about the '80s metal (hair, heavy, everything), with some Thorogood, etc. tossed in.

Shes a Buckeye, writes for ElevenWarriors and loves bacon, what more could you ask?
I grew up around guns as my father owns 20+. The right to own guns should NEVER be taken away from us. However, the time has come to take a look at what should be allowed and what shouldn't. IMO, Semi-automatic weapons, hand guns and extended clips need to go (outside of the military and law enforcement). There is no reason to own a gun other than to hunt and protect your home, both of which can be done with shotguns and rifles. There needs to be a length requirement on guns so that they cannot be easily concealed in public. I also agree that people with more severe mental conditions should not be allowed to purchase firearms of any kind. Something needs to be put on their record so that when a background check is done, they are flagged.
Would that stop gun violence? No... illegal firearms will still be available and domestic violence with legal guns will persist, but it should reduce the number of incidents.
Watch it JC, Lebanon Levi is no one to mess with
Show is atrocious by the way
What practical purpose do handguns and semi-automatics serve?
Stress relief personally. I don't hunt. Target shooting is a hobby.
Assault rifles no comment. Investment kinda like gold
That's not exactly a practical purpose. But if needed, you could allow shooting ranges to have handguns with strict protections to ensure that the weapon remains at the facility.
