Back in 1990 in Bernie Sanders’ first campaign for Vermont’s lone seat in the House of Representatives, a guy named Ben and his partner Jerry threw a few beans from their profits at ice cream manufacturers towards the campaign. This was recounted by an ice cream fan from Michigan, Michael Moore, who said there were quite a few rallies they attended where there was not much to the crowd except for the makers and one consumer of Ben & Jerry’s products. I’m imagining Moore leading the chant, “I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream!”Beans of Ben.
‘What could happen that could embarrass this kid?''
''Hey kid, you alright?''
''Is that . . . hair gel?''
It's important to get any foot problems checked, especially if they involve the skin.As rough as my toe foo-t maladies are, bean curd has less painful word association to me but The Dude might remind me that:
Float like a butterfly, sting like Makiri.More commonly known as Muhammad Ali or The Greatest or The Louisville Lip, Olympic gold medal winner Cassius Marcellus Clay Jr became possibly the most iconic sports figure of the 20th Century.
If I am promised recovery therapy to be administered by Makiri, I will gladly offer up my glass chin to Boxer Babe Maria.It's important to get any foot problems checked, especially if they involve the skin.
Float like a butterfly, sting like Makiri.

You needed a mermaid.An Okinawan beach was the location where a very young stringytom first tried to swim but when the wee boy went under the Pacific waves he came up with a mouthful of warm salty water that he spit out before exclaiming to his father, “Daddy! I drownded!”
Rourke is one of many actors directed by Englishman Adrian Lyne in relationship films. They worked together in 9-1/2 Weeks with Kim Basinger. Lyne also directed Fatal Attraction (Michael Douglas, Glenn Close), Indecent Proposal (Woody Harrelson, Demi Moore, Robert Redford) and Unfaithful (Richard Gere, Diane Lane).Samuel Goldwyn Jr. once had an obscenity-laced tirade about Mickey Rourke when he was on a promotional tour for A Prayer for the Dying. Rourke also briefly co-owned a motorcycle-themed cafe/bar in Beverly Hills.
Mickey Rourke's career was largely launched by his performance in a small role in Body Heat.
The Golden Age of Television is traditionally identified as the 50’s decade but so many great actors and directors emerged from the 70’s that I view that era as The Golden Age...three smash hit sitcom co-stars began in front of the camera only to move to the chair behind the camera; think about how bleak the movie biz would be without Penny Marshall, Ron Howard and Rob Reiner crossing the line to grab the megaphone and yelling, “Action!”
Things That (Probably) Wouldn’t Exist Without Fellini’s 8 ½
The Dance Scene From Pulp Fiction
Quentin Tarantino likes to talk about the importance of Jean-Luc Godard, and particularly Band of Outsiders, on his film. But take a look at this comparison of the twist scene from Fellini’s film and the twist scene between John Travolta and Uma Thurman in Pulp Fiction:
"9½ Weeks" probably isn't one better than "8½."
Sal-Joel Dali was a joy before his “discovery” of the San Poobiego Bageler. Now he’s as demented as any of the residents in Nurse Ratched’s psychiatric wing before Randle came to rescue them.L'Age d'Or was directed by Luis Buñuel, who co-wrote the film with Sal-Joel Dali.
Revealed: Dentist who introduced Beatles to LSDCycling became psychedelic for a Basel chemist on his afternoon ride home on April 19, 1943. Was he the Uncle Albert that Macca sang about nearly 30 years later?
The funny thing is that I'm really not thinking about Lana or Marloes outside of this forum, but it's fun to add a running theme to my posts to make things more entertaining for me, and I do chose subjects that I like, and often women that I've met. I briefly had pizza as a theme, but women are much nicer. It's the same as forum members not thinking about Sureshs when not on the forum . . . well, except for JoelDali.Better a crappy iPhone LDR cover than the waste of three minutes listening to LDR cover one of my favorite very early rock classics:
