D Movie Review

Friday the mailbox had a package of video love from Amazon in it. Actually it was from a reseller through Amazon but still Video Love.

It had all the essential elements of a bad scifi movie;

Busload of blind Orphans? Check
Bus breaks down in middle of nowhere? Check
Small mining town in middle of nowhere? Check
Abandoned uranium mine just outside town? Check
Evil Mortician who is actually failed government scientist? Check
Midget morticians assistant? Check
Mortician makes dead townspeople into Zombies? Check
Renegade biker gang led by a lesbian on the road into town? Check
Newest member of gang happens to have been Homecoming Queen in this small town? Check
Cue the hilarity,
Zombies break out of mine where mortician is keeping them and terrorize town.
Small town hicks are already up in arms against the biker gang. Zombies arrive and townspeople can't "kill" them because they're family. Bikers have to save town and blind orphans. Homecoming Queen hooks up with husband she ran out on. (Billy Bob Thornton in his first movie). "Cycle Sluts" save the town, mortician gets attacked by zombie, midget takes care of the kids. Oh Yeah, Martha Quin gets killed by the zombies in the middle of all that!

That's Right; "Chopper Chicks in Zombie Town"!

Takes me back to Dobie Screens on UT Campus more years ago than I care to admit.

Brought to you by Troma, the folks who brought you Toxic Avenger and Teenage Catgirls in Heat as well as other horror classics.

Definitely a must see for folks who like really bad movies.

Random Aircraft Sightings

Never know what's going to pop in for lunch around here. Two of these guys dropped in for some FreeBirds. Kinda cool when the customer comes in to tell you and leads the way to go have a look!

Welcome Treasury Department, AGAIN

Welcome back! Times have been a bit nuts around here. We are running up to 16 hour days and on weekends through next year at work. So, I haven't been as attentive to the blog as I should have. Evidently the has been though. They stopped by to visit this old post on P-Mg Mag Clips. Being Treasury, I have to wonder, how does the BATF&E show up now a days? Do they still show up as Treas or DOJ?

What a Day for a Funeral

It's September 11, 2009, On this most hallowed of days,

Army 2nd Lt. Darryn D. Andrews body was flown in today on his way home to Cameron. Lt Andrews was killed
Friday in Paktia province, Afghanistan when his vehicle was hit by an IED and then attacked by RPG's. His 2YO son celebrated his birthday Monday and his wife is due to deliver their second soon.

It was a somber thing to see the Army Honor Guard, the Patriot Guard Riders and a host of local ad state law enforcement officers receive his body along with his family and friends. The Airport Fire Station emptied as the Firemen stood at attention while the procession passed.

Sorry, I just couldn't bring myself to take pictures.

Political and Personal Causes

Joe Huffman hits one out of the park concerning the Civil Rights arguments and violent reaction to infringement of those rights and successfully ties that in to armed self defense. It is more than worth the read.
Draw you line in the sand and stick to it.
The money quote from John Clifford is;
"When you draw your gun is far more important than how fast you draw it."

I couldn't agree more with this quote or with the rest of the article. GO READ IT NOW!

Unfortunate headline but Wise Words

Sebastion has the skinny on the headline. But the article is well worth reading. Towards the end of it Sheriff Brad Steube steps in with this;

Steube also pleaded for parents to help in the fight against guns and drugs, saying law enforcement can react to crime but cannot instill morals in those willing to take a life. “I am upset. I am mad. I want the community to step up,” Steube said.

County Commissioner Gwen Brown also jumped into the fray with these words;

Commissioner Brown also pushed for parents to get involved in their children’s lives, a step that may save a life as the homicide rate in Manatee County has reached an all-time high.

Here is a tragic death of a teenager and very unusually the adults involved are stepping up and talking sense about what needs to be happening to address the issue rather than calling for more laws that are already being broken.

Quote of the Day

"Jews are not like Christians," Moscowitz said. "If I turn my cheek, I'm coming around to make a kick."

Stolen from Top of the Chain's post


quoting Rabbi Gary Moscowitz about reactions to violence in houses of worship. I am so with him there!

Mom's Out

So, my sisters sprung my Mom from the hospital today. She is at a point where she can maintain adequate O2 Saturation without oxygen and the Pneumonia is on it's way out. She is also now on additional medications for her heart.

Bottom Line: She's out and not in immediate danger. Good thins do happen.

Thanks to those who offered prayers for her and the family!
