a greek trajedy

The family’s been sick all week. I was the only one that got the shits.

What’s up with that?

But the most tragic news of the week has been the firing of Jack Easterby. I’m quite surprised because I figured that Cal McNair was dumb enough to keep this charlatan on the payroll. But it’s just not everyday that you hear about one man’s Machiavellian climb to the top of an NFL franchise.

So I really hope that another Christian sports owner gives this guy a shot. Because if there’s one thing I know about Easterby, it’s that he knows his ABG’s:

Always Be Grifting.

In happier news, the 1996 Jan De Bont classic Twister is getting a sequel:

The major obstacles in this production, so far, has been the deaths of Bill Paxton and Philip Seymour Hoffman. Producer Steven Spielberg has gone on record as saying, “of course it would be fucking stupid to make sequel without Bill and Phil,” he said, “so naturally we’ll CGI them into Twister 2, just like they did to Grand Moff Tarkin in that Star Wars movie. Everyone seemed to have liked that. And besides, that’s a hell of a lot cheaper than hiring actors! Fuck that!”

While Deadline has reported that climate change will be a major focus in the film, it has also been stated that the plot will be centered on the daughter of Bill Paxton and Helen Hunt who has become a “climate change denier” that claims tornadoes are actually a “divine wrath from God” on the the state of Oklahoma.

So I don’t know guys, this seems like another strange decision from Hollywood. Nevertheless, I am quite excited for this long awaited sequel.

Twister: fury road

It’s my favorite time of the year: tornado season.

I’ve never seen a tornado. I’m sure it’s a pants-shitting experience, but I’ve always wanted to see one.

Until then, I’d like to petition Criterion to release an edition of the greatest documentary of the 90s…Twister: Fury on the Plains.

I’m sure VHS copies of this video are hard to come by. So Criterion…do the right thing. It’s very important that history remembers this cheap ass video that was produced to cash in on the success of Twister.
