Quote of the Day: Missing in Action

Sen. Maxwell Porter: Colonel James Braddock
Gen. Trau: Ah, Colonel Braddock. I heard much about you. Welcome to the People’s Republic of Vietnam.
[Offers a handshake but Braddock ignores him and stares at him]
Sen. Maxwell Porter: Colonel! You are a goddamn embarrasment, Braddock.
Col. James Braddock: That’s why I’m here, senator.

Happy 76th Birthday to Chuck Norris!!!

While other children were playing in sand, Chuck was playing in concrete.

Chuck Norris doesn’t worry about high gas prices. His vehicles run on fear.

Chuck Norris once fought superman. The loser had to wear his underwear over his pants.

There once was a street called Chuck Norris, but the name was changed for public safety because nobody crosses Chuck Norris and lives.

Chuck Norris threw a grenade and killed 50 people, then it exploded.

Can you name the artist and song:

I like to look, to long run
I like to take each step, one by one
Right on time, you will arrive
By keepin’ the dream alive


Last Song: “On the Wings of Love” by Jeffrey Osborne from the album Jeffrey Osborne (1982)

Remember That Song: 3/7/17

Can you name the artist and song:

I have stood here before inside the pouring rain
With the world turning circles running ’round my brain.


Last Song: “Neutron Dance” by The Pointer Sisters from the album Break Out (1983)

Great job RMJR (@14rmjr)!!!

Someone stole my brand new Chevrolet
And the rent is due, I got no place to stay

Quote of the Day: Stand By Me

Gordie: Fuck writing, I don’t want to be a writer. It’s stupid. It’s a stupid waste of time.
Chris: That’s your dad talking.
Gordie: Bullshit.
Chris: Bull true.
Chris: I know how your dad feels about you. He doesn’t give a shit about you. Denny was the one. He cared about and don’t try to tell me different. You’re just a kid, Gordie.
Gordie: Oh, gee! Thanks, Dad.
Chris: Wish the hell I was your dad. You wouldn’t be goin’ around talkin’ about takin’ these stupid shop courses if I was. It’s like God gave you something, man, all those stories you can make up. And He said, “This is what we got for ya, kid. Try not to lose it.” Kids lose everything unless there’s someone there to look out for them. And if your parents are too fucked up to do it, then maybe I should.

Remember That Song: 3/3/17

Can you name the artist and song:

You better hear what I say
I can tell your eyes are just about to
give you away


Last Song: “Only Lonely” by Bon Jovi from the album 7800° Fahrenheit (1985) in honor of Jon Bon Jovi who turned 55 yesterday

Another long and sleepless night
You need someone to hold you tight
Sometimes love don’t know wrong from right
