Not only was the baby killed by her parents, she was apparently tortured. Stop reading here if you don't have the stomach for this.
They beat the girl with leather belts, held her head under water for periods of time and threw her across the room. Her head would hit a tile floor. The autopsy showed three skull fractures.
This is a challenge to one's faith. I don't blame God for people like this existing. Sin does terrible things and sin is man's creation, not God's. The challenge comes in figuring out what to do with these people. My gut says these people ought to be tortured as much or more than they did to that defenseless little girl, God rest her soul. But vengeance isn't ours to take. So that's problem #1.
Problem #1 is escapable if you believe these sinners will burn in eternal damnation. But that brings about problem #2. I need to be praying for their souls to be saved. They still should be put to death for what they did. Civil laws still have their just punishments and God's salvation doesn't give us any respite from the earthly consequences of our actions. It's very difficult to want these souls in heaven. I say that to my shame. I feel like I can relate to Jonah in times like this.
Everyone knows Jonah as the guy who lived in the belly of a great fish (whale if you prefer.) But the story of Jonah is much deeper than one of a guy who was saved by God in that belly. Jonah was a prophet who was to go teach the people of Ninevah about God and save them. Jonah didn't want to because the Ninevites were enemies. Jonah tried to flee, tried to argue with God about saving the Ninevites. But in the end they were saved, and Jonah didn't like it.
I can relate to that. Sometimes I look at people and think they don't deserve God's grace. Then I have to realize that 1) I'm acting like Jonah; 2)I don't deserve grace either, that's why it's called "grace."
This story makes that a tough, tough lesson to apply.

He's a former baptist preacher who doesn't seem to fit the mold of typical politician. He's not like Fred Thompson, Rudy Giuliani or Mitt Romney. Yet he's not as off the beaten path as Ron Paul.
I like Huckabee because of his conservative stances on a wide array of issues. One of the more popular ones are his belief that the IRS has outlived its usefulness. A fair tax proposal is something I've been in favor of since taking tax accounting classes as a student at Western Kentucky University.
But my fellow contributors at the Affect want more. What's THEIR motivation for voting for Mike Huckabee? Look no further...
Huckabee is also hitting the campaign trail with a pair of zany endorsements, talking up the celebrity support he’s earned from actor Chuck Norris and wrestler Ric Flair, who plans to travel with Huckabee to South Carolina Nov. 24.
And he's using the offbeat endorsements to draw donors to the Web site. On the site is a television ad that is also airing this week in Iowa, where Norris and Huckabee trade riffs on the long line of Chuck Norris jokes that play on his tough-guy image.
“My plan to secure the border? Two
words; Chuck Norris,” Huckabee says in the ad.
Answering back, Norris says, “Mike Huckabee’s a lifelong hunter, who’ll protect our second amendment rights.”
The tongue-in-cheek ad drew criticism from GOP opponent Fred Thompson’s campaign. Spokesman Todd Harris said it demonstrated Huckabee “has confused celebrity endorsement with serious policy.”

Chief Kickingstallionsims from Alabama State University.
Argyle, Texas, is no longer a good place for teenagers to get their freak on.
A school superintendent in the Dallas suburb recently banned the sexually suggestive "freak dancing" or "grinding" popular with teens, the Wall Street Journal reports — causing a debate among parents and school officials.
While Argyle joins a long list of other schools around the country that have banned the hip-hop inspired dancing, some parents blame the newly installed school superintendent, Jason Ceyanes, 35, for ruining their children's October homecoming dance by enforcing a strict dress code and making provocative dancing off-limits.
Click here for the Wall Street Journal report
Ceyanes says he fears current cleavage-baring dress styles combined with sexually charged dancing could lead to an unsafe environment for students.
"This is not just shaking your booty," he told the Journal. "This is pelvis-to-pelvis physical contact in the private areas ... and then moving around."
Karen Miller, 53, saw her first "freak dance" four years ago when she was chaperoning a high-school dance attended by her freshman daughter.
One boy was up close to a girl's back, bumping and grinding to the pounding beat of the music.
"I thought, 'That's just dadgum nasty,'" Miller told the Journal. "It really had me sick to my stomach."

This song is rocking and the video is amazing, especially this version straight from the Queens site. It is the uncensored version and it includes nudity so those with virgin eyes, beware. It appears the subject of this video is four girls who are looking for trouble and when they find it, trouble runs. Or something like that.
If you would rather watch a censored version, you can click here.

We're not given this guys name, so it's our first John Doe in the Manly Men of Mankind. Mr. Doe will be inducted into the MMM not because he killed a mountain lion. He used a gun, and usually that means he's excluded from the MMM. But he did it to save a puppy that was being attacked by said mountain lion.
Now if you're killing to save man's best friend you get in the MMM by the Michael Vick Offsetting Action Clause.
So John Doe, welcome to the Manly Men of Mankind.
Man up, America!

Ken Burns focuses on four towns in the U.S. and we get a sense of what it must have been like for the whole country. It is not just learning a history of the war, but a history of our country. I learned about the internment of Japanese-Americans in camps and the segregation that was so prevalent in this country even though we were fighting a mad man who essentially wanted the same thing. The War is sad and eye opening and it is something that all Americans should see.
The War will be shown on PBS all day Sunday Sept. 30th, at least in my area, starting at 10 AM Central and will start rerunning on Thursday, Oct. 4, of next week. If you can, you should do yourself a favor and check it out.
In the case of the Muslim communities our support of Israel after WWII and especially in the last 15 or so years has gone over the line with them. Certainly we have key idealogical differences in governmental philosophies as well as religious beliefs and freedoms. But the bloodthirst of the radical Muslim community can't simply be fueled by philosophical differences and maintain the footing that it does. This is an area that really needs examination from our current presidential candidates. I'd like to hear some serious Lincoln-Douglas debates over this.

Ok, so rhythmic gymnastics is gayer than Liberace in a Roman bath house, but that's pretty incredible right there.

Now on to the quote of the year. A columnist asked Griffey to describe what it felt like when he hurt his groin and Griffey told him.
Are you ready?
"The best way I can describe it is it felt like somebody bungee jumped off my right nut."
Alright! It is good to see that we can get a little comedy out of a bad situation. Good luck to Jr. in the future and here's hoping you get your sleepsack repaired.

I then hit the jackpot and before I go on I must say that the cellphone and I have had a tentative relationship at best. I hardly use it, the batteries seem to run down in an hour, the NEW AT & T has stupid billing cycles when it comes to me, but I must say, God bless you cellphone. I have found a veritable cornucopia of cellphone vids of the rehearsals and seeing them makes me believe I made a huge mistake in not forcing Big Kev to drive me to St. Louis to see Van Halen. I may have to work in some blackmail to achieve this, but something has to be done. And as a treat for you, my fellow VH fans, I will link those vids and you can see for yourself what I have been watching all morning.
Vid 1: This is the only full song that I have seen recorded so far and it is Romeo Delight off the Women and Children First album. The sound quality is crappy compared to most of these vids, but you get to see the whole song performed and it will fire your arse up.
Vid 2 & Vid 3: These two videos are of the song Unchained off the Fair Warning album. The sound is a little better on these two.
Vid 4 & Vid 5: In these two videos you get to see and hear the great Edward Van Halen perform his guitar solo or parts of it. Vid 4 is a song called Cathedral off the Diver Down album and Vid 5 is the end of the classic Eruption off Van Halen's self titled debut.
Vid 6: This next clip is of the song Beautiful Girls off the Van Halen 2 album and you get a chance to hear that classic VH harmony. Ah yeah, beautiful girls! Also, you may remember this song from the SNL commercial for Schmitz's Gay Beer.
Vid 7: This is a clip from Panama of the 1984 album. It sounds amazing.
Vid 8: This is a longer clip that is some different songs spliced together, Ice Cream Man from the self titled album, Jump from 1984, Hot for Teacher from 1984, Pretty Woman from Diver Down, and a clip from Alex Van Halen's drum solo. It is kind of a mini version of the Van Halen show.
Vid 9: The audio is crappy on this compared to some of the others, but it is a clip of Somebody Get Me a Doctor from Van Halen II. It sounds good even with crap audio.
Vid 10: More crappy audio but of a great song, Dance the Night Away off the Van Halen II album. And if my ears do not deceive me, I think you can just hear the band go into Atomic Punk from the self titled album.
Vid 11: This is a video, or slide show if you will, featuring still photos of the band during the rehearsal concerts. In these pics you can really see that DLR is not f'n around when it comes to being in shape for a long tour.
So there you go. I am done geeking out, at least for the next hour or so.
A few things, why is DLR dressed like a cowboy? The only thing missing from the group besides Michael Anthony seems to be long hair. It's a shame we couldn't also reunite Eddie and DLR's hair for this tour. As for Wolfgang, he seems to be holding his own and is at least the same size as Michael Anthony. If you listen to the Bombay Gunrunners next week we will talk about the set list and it seems that VH is ready to play around 25 songs not counting guitar and drum solos. I am even more excited to see them live and even more depressed that I have not got tickets.

In TV news, the discussion begins and ends with the MTV VMAs and the fallout. In movies, Julie and Pat saw 300 and Lee and Dustin saw 3:10 to Yuma. Lee also saw a thousand other movies. In music the Gunrunners discuss Lee's Van Halen concert plans and his new concert plans of seeing Zed Zed Top. Also the Gunrunners introduce their myspace music pick hit o' the week, Budos Band.
It was a jam packed show and the whole while Lee's football gambling money went down the drain thanks to the Cincinnati Bengals. I curse them! If you have any opinions on Lee and Pat getting mohawks or you have some favorite Fall songs or Fall foods, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or message or leave a comment for us on our myspace page.

Snort it down!!!
In other pick 'em news, in the Bombay Gunrunners Yahoo NFL Pick 'Em I am in second so far this week with 9 correct out of 15 just trailing Julie, who for some reason has once again gotten 10 or more right for the second week in a row. I was horrbile last week and have employed a new picking strategy that seems to have worked out this week. Here's my new strategy for those who are looking for different ways to pick your games. I make my picks on Thursday pretty much going with my first instinct. Then on Friday, I go back and change every pick to the opposite of what I picked. Last week I got 7 correct, this week I am two better and have the possibility of getting ten correct with tonight's game. So there you go.
In other news, this past weekend the UK Wildcats football team, after trying everything they could to give it away, beat the number 9 ranked Louisville Cardinals. Not only did we (and I did say we) beat a top 10 ranked opponent, not only was it Louisville our most hated rival, but we also cost Lousiville any chance of a national championship. Now UK is officially a top 25 ranked team, at least until they get beat this weekend. For those of you who want to relive the victory or somehow missed it, click here for a youtube video that condenses Saturday down to a 4 minutes. And look for a special trash talking appearance by future UK legend Dickie Lyons, Jr.

At the end, you might think she says thank you to the crowd, but I heard that she actually said I'm sorry. Not exactly the best way to make your comeback. If she can't get straight for one performance, how will this crazy wench ever be able to tour or make public appearances?
Watch the train come off the tracks and enjoy!!!
Speaking of crazy wenches, here's Kanye West throwing another tanturm because he didn't win any awards. He claims MTV won't give a black man a chance. I have to agree, there were no faces of color on the whole telecast of the VMAs...wait a minute.
I think Kanye West is very talented, but he is a b***h. He always has something to cry about. Grow a sleepsack Kanye and fill it with something besides tears, you idiot.
In this episode the Gunrunners discuss Pat's bad football gambling skills, Lee's escape from death, tattoos and piercings, Larry Craig and bathroom behavior.
We then discuss a little Big Brother 8 and Rock of Love's new bachelor. In movies we discuss That Touch of Mink, State Fair and Hour of the Gun as well as a group review on Rob Zombie's Halloween. In music the boys introduce the myspace pick hit o' the week, Dax Riggs.
There are other things discussed, but it's too early in the morning to remember them so check this episode out. As always we would love your thoughts, comments and suggestions and you can send those to us at email@example.com or message us or leave a comment on our myspace page, also our show's homepage is bombaygunrunners.com.

The video was written and directed by Billy Zabka who was in fact, Johnny in the movie. The video shows what happened to Johnny later in life and what might have happened had he not got kicked in the face. It is very cool and has a Raising Arizona vibe to it. If you love The Karate Kid or Raising Arizona then you will love this.

This might not be a big surprise to any of you and sadly some of you reading this may very well be one of the stupid people I'm speaking of, but nevertheless the world is chocked full o' stupidity and the OC has it's fair share. Possibly even a little too much.
However, over the past few weeks I’ve hit on a common thread of stupid people where this particular faction’s stupidity has nothing to do with intelligence, it’s more ego and arrogance.
These are the same people who, if they were legitimately famous, would drop a “Do you know who I am?” to the cop that pulled them over for doing 69 in a 45 mph zone. And, in fact, they might still do that now depending on what cop pulls them over be it local city cop or county deputy.
This past week I had a woman who essentially went to my boss and complained about something I did when she was the one that actually dropped the ball. This woman didn’t care so she complained to my boss and lied to him saying that I knew everything that was going on and decided to blow it off. Luckily, I’m in a position where my boss and I are pretty much a team where the loss of either one of us is catastrophic. And complaining about something as minute as what she was complaining about just barely concerned him enough to the point of asking me about it.
The only reason he even asked me about it was because he was curious what this nutbar was really talking about.
This is the kind of person I’m talking about. The kind of person who goes out of their way try and cause trouble for someone else because they are upset about something, no matter how insignificant, and have the ego to think “I’ll have someone’s head on a platter for this.” because they are who they are. Even though they are nobody in the real world, but the Paris Hilton of their world.
Another instance happened a few years ago when a colossal d-bag called up out of the blue just to tell the person he called that they sucked at a particular job they were doing. Not to offer any suggestions to make it better or even give a reason why he didn’t like the job they were doing, he just wanted to make it known to them that he believed that they sucked at what they did.
It takes a special kind of a-hole to do something like this for a few reasons.
1) You feel that the person you are calling will accept you opinion and criticism and perhaps thank you for it because it’s coming from you.
2) You feel that even though this person will likely tell several people that you are a d-bag and what you said, but instead of thinking ill of your d-bag ways they will chastise the person for running down your good name because you are who you are.
3) Even though you’ve expressed your d-bag opinion to many different people about many different situations, everyone still believes that you are the salt of the earth and not the biggest a-hole that ever walked on two legs.
The thing that bothers me about these people isn’t that they’ve tried to somehow personally cause me trouble for a very insignificant reason, but it’s that I can’t fathom how miserable these people must be. For something to get you so mad that you instantly fly off the handle and flip into destruction mode for petty issues has got to be a miserable life.
I’ve come to find that I have opinions that I feel passionately about, but about 75 percent of the time these people will fly off the handle start making phone calls and not do any research before complaining. Then when they get the tables flipped they’ll sometimes straight up lie about the situation or attempt to gloss over the very large detail they didn’t look into before making an ass of themselves.
The best example I can think of is the principal or whoever he was in the Breakfast Club. The scene where he takes Judd Nelson into the broom closet to set him straight. He talks about how he makes $31,000 a year, has a house, a wife and kids and he’ll be damned if he’s going to let F-ing Judd Nelson bring down his empire.
That very well might be a hell of an empire in his little world, but little did he know that Judd Nelson and rest of the Brat Pack could give two craps about him, his empire or his a-hole opinion. But he still felt as though they needed to know how he felt about them.
Those are educated stupid people and when you throw those people in with the generally stupid people, it gives me a headache.
Unfortunately, these people breed more a-holes and stupid people causing smart people to rationalize whether or not they want to subject their offspring to such stupidity.

In TV the BGRs discuss Lobster Wars, The Pickup Artist and a little Rock of Love. The BGRs then have some movie reviews including The Last Mimsy, Hannibal Rising, House of Flying Daggers, Hero, some Thin Man movies, a great Vincent Price movie and an even better Cary Grant movie. There is also discussion about Owen Wilson and Rob Zombie's Halloween.
In music the BGRs announce their pick hit o' the week and it is a group called Justice. It will help you get your freak on...or off. We also hear some of Pat and Dustin's favorite summer songs.
This show was jam packed and we came in around 90 minutes. So, enjoy!!!
By the by, Dr. Jesse may be joining us for the next episode and if you have any mental health questions or any crazy dreams you want help with, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or leave us a comment or message us at our myspace page.

I also like Rob Zombie. I love his music, I think he has a great eye and visual style. He is very creative. But can he pull this off? I am not a huge fan of remaking movies that are classics or movies that are already good and do not need any renovations.
With all that being said, it looks like Dr. Jesse and his family unit will be coming in next week and I expect us to see it and maybe have some sushi. If you watch it this weekend, email us at email@example.com or leave us a message or comment on our myspace page and tell us what you thought about it.
Until then you can check this out from MTV News. It is a article on some of the in-jokes that Rob Zombie has inserted into the new Halloween for purists and fans of the original Halloween.
Monday, August 27, 2007
In this week's episode Dustin tells us a story of lust, adultry, redemption, vengeance, and murder for hire. Then the BGRs discuss Superbad, The Pickup Artist, Rock of Love, Van Halen, and the pick hit o' the week is Yeah Yeah Yeahs.
The we move on to Lee's favorite summer songs and some of your's as well.
It is a short edition this week and maybe it will be like this every week if you like it. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or contact us on our myspace page. And you can always check out our podshow page at bombaygunrunners.com.

Luckily the humidity is down to just about nothing because there is simply no moisture to be found anywhere. Burn bans, watering bans, and cancelled events are the norm.
I work with women, which is problem number one. And my office, which gets warm on very hot days. Today it's about 80 in the office. When women get hot, they go crazy. These women go back and forth from having short tempers and getting mad about everything, then they get silly and frankly a bit raunchy.

This is a Miss Teen Louisiana. Her name is Logan Brooke Travis.
Is she attractive? Absolutely.
Is she beautiful? No doubt.
Is she sexy? Careful there Pedro, because Logan Brooke is only 15 years old. Better stick with beautiful. And watch who you say that to.
In an era where internet pedophiliacs get their own show on MSNBC and we have constant problems with attractive young ladies being abducted, I would consider this unnecessarily risky.
I think pageants are idiotic in the first place. No matter what people try to tell you about them, they get their legs from hedonism 101. But if they continue, and we all know they will, shouldn't we be a bit more cognizant of this type of exposure.
Miss Teen Louisiana may not be in any immediate danger, but if you're going to parade these underaged girls as sex symbols then you're feeding a fire whether that's your intention or not. Honestly, when I scanned Yahoo! this morning and saw this picture, I was impressed. I thought she was very sexy and very attractive. When I found out her age, I got a bit sick at myself.
I'm sure many will argue with me on this, but I think this is irresponsible and naive.
Monday, August 13, 2007
In this episode of he BGRs Lee discusses the worst day ever, people we hate, diving for sunken treasure, and tattoos and the broken women who get them (which upsets Pat terribly).
We move on to TV and discuss how much Dustin loves Real World Sydney, the d-bag that is The Pickup Artist, the Big Brother 8 controversies you may not know about and Ice Road Hookers. In movies, Julie watched Premonition and Lee watched crap as usual.
In music we give you are pick hit o' the week and celebrate the death of Elvis...that doesn't sound right.
As always you can email us at email@example.com or message us and friend us at our myspace page and check out our podshow page at bombaygunrunners.com. So what are you waiting for, BE OUR FRIEND!!!!!!

We've made fun of it a few times and in the last post Travis posed the question of whether or not I would kill a small animal with my bare hands.
My answer is no I would not and here is why.
I was lucky enough in my life that I was taught how to use a gun at a very early age. I've said this many times, I had a gun blow up in my face at age 5, so a gun finds a happy home within my grasp. This is one of the perks of growing up in the country. If you think there are a lot of guns in the inner city, you should come out here to the real OC.
That being said, having been raised in such an environment it would be no surprise to you or anyone else that, like Barry Gibb, I'm never more than 5 seconds from a gun at any point when being attacked by a rabid varmint is possible.
So, should any animal short of a African buffalo come my way, I can find the appropriate firearm in which to take it down. Big bore and small caliber rifles, shotguns, take your pick.
Therefore, the probability of me having to kill an animal with my bare hands is very slim.
However, should I ever be put into a position where I must defend mine or someone else's honor against a rabid varmint sans firearm, it still would never make it to the point where I would have to use my bare hands.
You see, in our youth, mine and Piccu's mother would deliver corporal punishment with whatever she could get her hands on. Magazines, fly swatters, yard sticks, tree branches, brooms, toilet brushes, whatever. She was the thinking man's disciplinarian. Anything was a weapon and she could wield them with the skill and precision of a samurai warrior.
Besides, when you have your hands around the neck of a raccoon or any similar-sized animal, why don't you just punt the thing like a football? It's not like it's going to come back after you after having been punted 30 feet.
Are you actively seeking out these stories, Travis?
Let's also make note that all of the people that had to kill these animals with their bare hands are the same people that would never put themselves into a position where the animal would attack them. They'd run like scared little girls and I am including myself in that group.
But in all of these cases they had to come to the rescue of other people who didn't have enough sense to run away like scared little girls. So if people would leave wild animals alone, we've never have to ask ourselves if we'd strangle a squirrel to death.
The woman's name has not yet been released. She has officially, however, completed one of the requirements of membership into the Manly Men of Mankind club. That is killing a rabid animal without assistance from a weapon or jujitsu.
However, she will be denied admittance into the Manly Men of Mankind due to her irrevocable femininity. My apologies, but rules are rules.

This video is on Yahoo and I guess if I were to use modern lingo I'd say it's gone viral. It's about a 9 minute clip of a water buffalo ultimately surviving an attack from a lion pride and a crocodile. It's amazing to watch, even if you're not a nature freak.
Tuesday, August 07, 2007
This episode we welcome guests and brothers Chris and Brent to the show and discuss their rocking in a band, the BGRs joining them and forming a new band and then pop culture type stuff.
In the second half of the show the BGRs debut more guilty pleasure songs and they are bad...horribly, horribly bad. So listen to one part then when you get to the guilty pleasures take a break and then come back to that later and enjoy it. That isn't so hard is it? Wussies!

I'm first to admit that it's intriguing and I'd love to listen to it. It'll be produced by T Bone Burnett who has his fingers in many pies, including the very popular soundtracks to the films O Brother, Where Art Thou? and Walk the Line. So he's a man with his finger on the pulse of what people like.
But come on. Even when being objective like that doesn't this just seem wrong? I mean this is Robert Plant! He's probably one of the greatest hard rock singers of all time, if not the greatest. He fronted the most influential rock band in the post-Beatles era. His lyrics and singing style laid the grounwork for probably every band you grew up idolizing. And now he's dueting with a bluegrass icon?
It might work. Shoot, it'll probably work. But don't be surprised if it's followed by a series of plagues and the moon turning to blood.

This one involves battling another animal, but this is not some little varmint. It's a 70 pound male cougar who had his mouth around a 12 year old boy's head. Soccer kicks and a choke hold finally got the cougar to let go.
The cougar got out of the choke hold (probably gave Mark a good thumb to the eye) and challenged him. Mark being the foolish, er, brave man that he is, growled back at the beast and told him to bring it on. No word on whether or not the cougar was also talking trash.
The cat was later shot.
So good on ya' Mark Patterson. Man on, man on.
The video you'll see by clicking on the title shows young Rhain Davis in a DVD his grandfather filmed wherein he completely dominates a soccer field. You feel bad for the other boys out there. When I first read of MU signing a nine year old I thought it was stupid, but the kid has unbelievable skills.
So I hereby nominate Rhain Davis as a junior member of the MMM.
On Friday August 3rd it is Joan Crawford day and I am not a huge fan of hers, so I will skip ahead to Saturday the 4th which is William Holden day. There are plenty of great Holden movies for you to check out. If you have never seen the great Stalag 17, you have another chance at 5:45 PM EASTERN. This is a must see and if it weren’t for The Great Escape it would be the best German Prison Camp movie ever. Then at 8 PM EASTERN you can check out The Bridge On the River Kwai. This is another war movie that also stars Alec Guinness as an English commander of a captured command who is made to build a bridge for the enemy on the river Kwai. Holden is also prisoner who…well, you can see that for yourself.
On Sunday August 5th we have James Stewart day and you can watch any movie that is offered and you will enjoy it and be entertained. Stewart is one of the all time greats. If you want a couple of picks then watch The Shop Around the Corner at 8 AM EASTERN. This movie is a rom-com that is about secret pen pals who love each other, but don’t know they are co workers. It was later remade into You’ve Got Mail, but not even close to the original. Then at 8 PM EASTERN you can watch Mr. Smith Goes to Washington. This is the classic Stewart as naïve but smart character who in this movie becomes a replacement senator and finds himself battling corruption. This movie gives you hope that there are some in Washington who are actually fighting for the people and not themselves.
On Monday August 6 it is Robert Mitchum day. Mitchum is the quintessential hard arse and is no less in one of the great film noirs, Out of the Past at 11:45 AM EASTERN. Mitchum plays a private eye who is hired by old pal Kirk Douglas to find a woman with whom they are both very familiar. Twists and turns abound in this dark classic. Then at 11:30 PM EASTERN you can see El Dorado also starring John Wayne and a young James Caan. This movie interlaces great humor with good Western action.
On Tuesday August 7 it is Jane Russell day and if you know one thing about Ms. Russell, then you know two things about her. Jane Russell is just hot, hot hot, and the movie you need to see is called The Outlaw at 8 PM EASTERN. This film was directed by the crazy Howard Hughes and it caused a huge controversy and was banned for a time because of Russell's cleavage. If you have seen The Aviator you might remember a scene in which Hughes is trying to convince the ratings board that Russell’s cleavage is no greater than other starlets in other movies. Not a great film but it has Billy the Kid, Doc Holliday and Russell’s cleavage. Yum! Also at 12:30 AM EASTERN you can check out a B movie classic The Born Losers. This movie was banned in countries for violence and is a movie that makes rape victims unsympathetic. It is weird and not to be missed and Billy Jack will kick you in the face.
On August 8 we have Dana Andrews day and at 8 PM EASTERN you can watch a movie I haven’t seen myself called The Best Years of Our Lives. This movie is number 37 on both AFI 100 Films list. This movie deals with returning servicemen form WWII who come home and adjust to life after the war. Also at 4:15 AM EASTERN there is a B movie called Hot Rods to Hell that I haven’t seen but will check out because the title sounds awesome.
On August 9 it is Myrna Loy day and you have to check out The Thin Man at 9:30 AM EASTERN. This movie is so smart and charming it will make you sick when you think about movies that are made today. This movie is about a husband and wife team who investigate the disappearance of an inventor. William Powell is the husband and Myrna Loy is the wife and they are hilarious and drunk throughout. They made about 1000 Thin Man movies and they are shown throughout the day and I plan on watching two or three of them that I haven’t seen. If you are a James Stewart fan check out After the Thin Man at 11:15 AM and get a very young Stewart in a smart and funny film.
On August 10 we have Vincent Price day and if you know Vincent Price you know that his movies were generally horror movies and usually low budget horror movies. I have seen a few Price movies and one of my favorites is The Last Man on Earth. In this movie, Price is the last man on earth, or so he thinks. This movie is being remade with Will Smith in Price’s role and is being called I Am Legend. At 2:30 AM you can watch The Abominable Dr. Phibes and this movie is about a madman, Price of course, who uses the plagues of ancient Egypt to avenge his wife’s death. This is low budget but very inventive and Price is great as a madman, as per usual.
There you go, that ought to hold you. Those are some great stars to watch and some great ones to get into if you have never seen some of their movies. So until next time, keep your hand in the popcorn and your feet on the ground.

One story was hilarious and one was really interesting.
First, the hilarious story. It's a story about a dog that was buried in a Uniontown, Ky. cemetery. This cemetery was very overgrown and the owner of this deceased dog seems to have brought the cemetery back to life, pardon the pun, by mowing it and helping to keep it nice. I don't think the text version of this story mentions this, but they did last night on the news.
Anyway, this woman recently raised the money to put a nice headstone on the dog's grave. It's not a big stone and only has a short phrase on it.
It has the outline of a little dog and says "In Memory of Sh*#head"
That's right, the dog's name was Sh*#head. Needless to say, people are a little upset.
The other story was about a woman who was pulled over for running a red light. This woman was pulled over a few times last year for not wearing a seatbelt and she contended that she was both times she was stopped. After being pulled over both times, she bought a cheap digital camera and mounted it on her dash with velcro.
Now every time she goes through an intersection she snaps a picture or two.
Not too long ago she was pulled over for running a red light. She contended that she did not to the officer, but he wrote her a ticket anyway. When she showed up in court she had two photos from that intersection.
The first was behind a white van that the cop said ran the light too and all the vehicles were sitting at a red light. The second was the van just entering the intersection under a green light.
So the photos saved her a $500 fine even though the prosecution pleaded to the judge for some reason and the judge told them to move on. There were 15 other people in the courtroom there for running red lights.
That being said, I wonder if the good folks at Fox 7 News are going to pick up on the fact that this woman was given a ticket for something she obviously didn't do. Making one wonder what this cop was doing giving her a ticket for something he obviously didn't witness.
Not only that, there were 15 other people in that courtroom that paid a $500 fine for something that, since they didn't have photographic evidence to prove they didn't actually run the red lights, turns into a "their word against the cops" situation.
That's kind of scary. I'm glad I don't go to Evansville that often.
Who would have ever thunk it. Chuck Hayes and Shaq in a commercial with Chuck receiving top billing. As Huell Howser would say, "This is AMAZING!" Enjoy!

Talk about spinning your wheels. Did we need a study to reach this conclusion?
Click the title of this post to read the article, then click the link at the bottom to read the actual study. The results will bore you.
The clip that did me is what when he grabbed the handle of his trolling motor, throttled it and it broke free from the boat so he was trying to not let it get away, but at the same time the throttle was on the handle he was grabbing. It's gold, Jerry. Gold.

In music the BGRs discuss GH Rocks the 80's as well as other GH news, in movies Lee and Dustin talk about The Simpsons movie and Lee watched 75 other movies this past week, and in TV the BGRs discuss Rock of Love, Damages, Mind Control with Derren Brown and Saving Grace.
The highlight of the show this week is the unveiling of Lee and Dustin's guilty pleasure songs. These are the songs they are embarrassed to say they love.
Should be great radio, huh? So we want to hear from you, the listeners. Tell us your guilty pleasure songs. I am talking about the songs no one knows you secretly love. Email us at email@example.com or message us on our myspace page. And while you are at it, add us as a friend on your myspace page and become a Junior Lil' Gunrunner. You know you want to. As always, you can get our podcast on iTunes or at bombaygunrunners.com.
Now go snort yourself!!!

Licenses are given with only 1/3 the amount of flying time as here. Instructors get paid about $2 a day. They use very old and outdated aircraft. It goes on and on. Freaky stuff.

Let me say, this was the first show I've EVER watched on BET. And I loved it. The show is self-described "pure social commentary" about problems that exist in the black community. The show's producers say what they're doing is no different than what Bill Cosby does, highlighting shortfalls of the black community with the hopes of inciting change.
So what happens? People complain. One blog has been complaining about this show for two months without ever having seen an episode. Why are some people in the black community so afraid of changing for the better?
I applaud Bill Cosby and those at Hot Ghetto Mess/We Got To Do Better for saying things that need to be said with voices that need to be saying it. You're talking about successful individuals who want to improve their community. There's nothing at all bad about that.
Watching the show last night they would go on the street and ask simple questions of people on the street. Mostly they asked blacks, but they also asked whites and others. Things as easy as, how many blacks are on the Supreme Court. One girl said 10. No wonder they call the show, "We Got To Do Better." No one knew when slavery ended. Sad.
It's a show that could be done with any ethnic group. But having something like this on BET is a positive step. Let's just see how long it lasts and how much its lauded or loathed.

The first is a Superhero personality quiz. After you answer the questions about yourself it will tell you how closely your personality is to the personality of a list of super heroes.
The Super Villain personality quiz. Same concept but it tells you how closely you resemble super villains.
Check out quizzes and post the results as a comment.
However this video could be classified in all of those categories and thrown into the odd category as well.
Below is a video of what appears to be inmates in an Asian prison reenacting Michael Jackson's Thriller video. Complete with one inmate in drag.
They are pretty dead on with the dancing. Note about half way in the main dancer up front is dead tired and soldiers through.

Here are a few photos from the experience.
The pilots that brought the chopper in were a part of the 101st Aviation crew known as the Killerspades which is totally cool. Notice the aces and 8's dead man's hand.
Here is the chopper taking off. It had some dummy Hellfire missiles and dummy rocket arrays loaded on. One type of rocket they use contains 1,100 three inch needles and it is designed to explode in front of the target so it releases the needles onto the target. Insane.
Here they are hovering in front of the kids. Notice the 30mm cannon below the front pilot is tracking with the front pilot's head. Wherever the front pilot looks, the cannon instantly follows his sight. So when he wants to shoot something he simply has to look at it and pull the trigger.
They took the Apache out and came at the crowd and banked hard away from us. This helicopter is scary when it goes over you, but the crazy thing is that when they get about a mile away you can't hear them at all. It's not really all that loud even though it had two 17,000 horsepower turbine engines.
Here the chopper is coming back at us for a second pass. They obviously couldn't show us how maneuverable the Apache is, but each blade on the main rotor and tail rotor can twist and change angles which most choppers can't do. With that and the power it has it is actually able to do an upside down loop.
They headed off to Fort Campball after this pass at a high rate of speed.
It was a really cool day and the pilots went over just about everything they could about this $35 million helicopter. It even gets email so they don't have to use their radios.
Listen to the Bombay Gunrunners podcast for a little more about the day.
Uncle Herbie didn't wrestle a rabid rodent as some of our members, but his story is real and unbelievable. But most importantly it happened here in the OC and Herbie is related to a couple of the Bombay Gunrunners.
Anyway, Herbie was doing a little bushhogging, which is the manliest of all the mowing a man can perform, and of course he was on a tractor when he was doing this. He was mowing on a bank when the tractor began to slide sideways down the bank.
Fearing that the tractor was going to turn over as many of us that have ridden a tractor have had happen, Herbie jumped off the tractor onto an asphalt driveway.
As he landed onto the asphalt driveway, the top of Herbie's tibia at the knee pretty much exploded and the bone split in half.
He quickly collected himself and noticed that the tractor he feared was going to turn over actually didn't and since it was still in gear was still going without a driver. From there he actually got to his feet, caught the tractor and actually jumped back onto the tractor and regained control.
After taking the tractor back to the house he passed out from the pain of his severely damaged leg.
Doctors had to take his leg and screw the tibia halves back together, put a cap on top of it and use bone cement to replace the fragments in what was most likely a lengthy surgical procedure.
He is still in the hospital but is expected to get out in a day or two.
Either way, he's Batman in my book.
The Manly Men of Mankind honor Uncle Herbie as our first member from the OC.
In this episode the Gunrunners discuss Lee and Dustin's mob uped insurance agent, drug bust in the OC, Dustin flies an Apache Long Bow helicopter, cockfighting in London (KY that is), and a fireworks injury (not any of us, sorry).
We also discuss VH1's Rock of Love and Big Brother 8. Then in movies we discuss Munich, Support Your Local Gun Fighter, Rashomon, God Forgives, But I Don't and Julie asks Lee about a pile of DVDs she stole from a friend.
In music the BGRs give you a pick hit of the week and take you back to 1982 with some classic rock while they blast through crazy news of the week.
We then wrap up the show with some great email and comments. Speaking of great email and comments, email us with anything at firstname.lastname@example.org or make a comment or message us at our myspace page. You can also check us out at bombaygunrunners.com. Now let us hear from you and we will make you famous or at the least relatively known.
Friday, July 20, 2007
First off we have Angels with Dirty Faces on July 21 at 8 AM EASTERN. This is a good old fashioned gangster movie starring James Cagney and Humphrey Bogart. You can’t get better than that. This movie pits childhood friends, one a hoodlum and one a priest, on opposite sides of the law, who are fighting for the loyalties, and in the case of the priest, the souls of a young street gang. This is not the best Cagney gangster film but if you have never seen him in action, this certainly will not disappoint.
Next on July 21 at 4 PM EASTERN we have Thunder Road. Robert Mitchum is the star of this movie about a Kentucky moonshiner who battles a Chicago gangster. This movie is full of fast cars and white lightening. This is a pretty good movie, but it will be better for those of us who are actually from Kentucky. Watch because Robert Mitchum is a badass, that’s reason enough.
On July 22 at 6 PM EASTERN we have the great From Here to Eternity starring Burt Lancaster, Montgomery Clift and Frank Sinatra. It also has two great female actors in Deborah Kerr and Donna Reed. This movie is about enlisted men in Hawaii who fight for love and honor on the eve of WWII or that how TCM explains it. This movie has the goods. Montgomery Clift is one of the all-time great brooders. Nothing seems to satisfy him. Burt Lancaster is a man’s man and doesn’t mind stealing someone’s wife if he has to. And Sinatra gives his best performance in this film. Love and war make two great subjects for a movie. This movie was number 52 on the original AFI 100 Films and somehow it dropped off the list for the 10th anniversary. It almost invalidates the new list, this is a great movie.
Also on July 22 at 8 PM EASTERN you can get your baseball fix with The Pride of the Yankees starring Gary Cooper, Teresa Wright and one of my all time favorite character actors Walter Brennan. This movie is about the life of New York Yankee legend Lou Gehrig and the ending of his baseball career by a crippling disease. This was the movie that made me a Gary Cooper fan. Cooper plays the part perfectly and as you watch it you forget it is a movie and start to see it as a documentary. Also look for a cameo from another Yankee legend, the Babe.
We now jump ahead to July 26 at 1 AM EASTERN to a musical by the name of Tommy. Yes, it’s that Tommy. The Who’s rock opera was made into a movie and it is a weird one. It stars Ann-Margret at her hottest (unfortunately her singing leaves a little to be desired because of too too much vibrato). It also stars the Who’s Roger Daltrey as the title character Tommy. As I said it is a weird movie but it is a movie loaded with great songs. A must see for Who fans and maybe a nice curiosity for everyone else.
Finally we have July 28 at 2 AM EASTERN as a part of the TCM Underground, A Bucket of Blood. This movie stars Dick Miller as wannabe hippie who has a very interesting way of sculpting. This movie must have been made at the height of all that pretentious hipster crap. You know, all the existential and “Daddy-o” junk. It is weird and disturbing and was crafted by the king of the B-Movies, Roger Corman. For fans of cult movies or just plain weird movies, this will be an enjoyable experience,
That’s it for this week so enjoy the feast I have laid out before you. Until next week, keep your hands in the popcorn and your feet stuck to the floor.

Seriously, if all this is true, and there's an awful lot of smoke if there's no fire, then I hope he gets a maximum jail sentance. And I'm shocked they couldn't come up with some animal cruelty charges to tack on to Vick's conspiracy and sponsoring indictments.
Read the link by clicking on the title of this post if you're not up-to-date on the Michael Vick dog fighting case. The cruelty they're talking about here is almost unspeakable. Drowning, electrocuting, shooting, or other executions of the dogs AFTER you forced them to fight each other.
Wounded dogs, undernourished, killed, beaten, etc, etc, etc.
The Vicks are proof that sometimes being a lowlife is a genetic trait.

Welcome Ben Czislowski. Ben is a rugby player. Already he's an honorary member. But Ben is much more than an ordinary player. Ben had a clash with an opponent (from the Tweed Heads...and you thought Florida Marlins was gay!) For three months Ben kept competing despite some headaches.
Why was Ben's head aching? Because a doctor later found he had his opponent's tooth embedded in his head. A tooth embedded in his HEAD! And he kept playing! For three months!
The Manly Men of Mankind happily coronate Ben Czislowski as our first Australian member. Man on!

When you are done with that you can check out this moron who had to recieve medical treatment after a good goring. This guy is unrelated to the two numbskull brothers except that they are all good candidates to be weeded out of the population due to Darwinism.
Snort it in...it always goes down smooth.
No Piccu, you singing "I Feel Pretty" in the shower doesn't count.
I'm thinking songs like LOLA, She Talks to Angels, Hey Jude, or Margaritaville.
No Bratch, you singing "A Spoonfull of Sugar" in the truck doesn't count.
Maybe you like All My Rowdy Friends, The Devil Went Down to Georgia, or I've Got Friends in Low Places.
No Me, me singing "Are You Strong Enough To Be My Man" in the car doesn't count.
Country, rock, folky, gospel, whatever. What's your favorite?
That was all a big set up to a victory for the bulls. Chris, our Senior Junior Lil' Gunrunner Pacific North West Coresspndent sent us this pic. It is not bloody, but if you look closely you will be disturbed at first, but when you realize that bull was then later killed, you will feel justified.
This week the Gunrunners discuss another bank robbery in the OC, Big Brother's latest psycho, Guitar Hero and Rock Band news, Marilyn Monroe vs. Chewbacca, Optimus Prime vs. Megatron, the yard police, and a $19 million terlet.
Beware, it's supersize. The show, not the terlet. We also discuss fantasy girls and would like our listeners to email us their fantasy girls or guys for the ladies. Email us at email@example.com or contact us on our myspace page. You can also find us at bombaygunrunners.com.
Snort on that!!!
On July 19 at 12 AM EASTERN you can watch one of my favorite war movies in All Quiet on the Western Front. It tells the story of some young German soldiers in WWI. It is very interesting to see how the other side was affected by this huge war. It shows us that even though we are in war and fighting an enemy we hate, the soldiers of the enemy are just as human as our soldiers. It is a great film and really makes an impact. This film was number 54 on the original AFI 100 Films list.
Also on July 19 at 9:15 AM EASTERN you can see a crazy what if type movie in Fail Safe. It stars Henry Fonda as the president of the U. S. who has to make hard choices after a failure in the U.S. security systems threaten to start WWIII. This movie also stars Walter Matthau and Larry Hagman. I watched the movie a few years ago and it was a tense and suspense filled couple of hours. This movie could be called the serious version of Dr. Strangelove. This movie shows just how frighteningly one computer malfunction could end the world.
Also on July 19 at 6 PM EASTERN TCM presents a movie I just recently watched, The Thing from Another World. This movie is about UFOs and aliens in the Arctic. Some of you may have seen UFO and alien movies from the 1950s and for the most part they are crappy. This movie on the other hand is not one of them. I thought this move was the best 1950s alien movie I have seen. It is creepy and suspenseful without being hokey and over the top.
This movie stars James Arness, who went on to later fame as Marshall Matt Dillon on Gunsmoke, as the monster. This movie was produced by the legendary Howard Hawks and some historians believe that, even though the credits say this movie is directed by Christian Nyby, that Hawks himself had the most input on the direction of this film. That may explain why it is so good. A must see for sci-fi fans and Hawks fans. Also this movie was remade by John Carpenter and renamed The Thing and from what I hear it is as good or better than the original.
Lastly we have a movie that is part of TCM Underground which means it is going to be weird and or freaky. On July 21 at 2 AM EASTERN you need to watch a movie called I Bury the Living. This is a cult movie starring no one you know, but the story is excellent and after it is over you will wonder why someone hasn’t remade this film with a big Hollywood budget. Here’s the setup, a cemetery keeper thinks he can mark people for death. Pretty simple. It is low budget but is very intriguing and has a twist ending that may take you a few rewinds to totally grasp. Who could ask for more?
Well, there you go, a mini version for this week. If I can remember I will give you some more for next week on Thursday or Friday. Until then, keep your hands in the popcorn and your feet stuck to the floor.

In this video you will see a couple of guys who strapped together about 1,000 Roman candles and lights them all. For someone who looks at the 4th of July as second Christmas this warmed my heart and to be honest lit a fire in my loins.
In this video you will see a Ferrari speeding through the streets of Paris. I mean SPEEDING through the streets. The car only slows down slightly for turns and early morning garbage trucks. The only sound you will hear is the revving engine and the squealing of tires. Oh, and maybe your heart. If you are a car guy or would like to see what it would be like to dirve with reckless abandon through the City of Love from a car's eye view than you should check it out.

I'm not a fan of the pope. I realize that men in cloaks with collars may wake me in my sleep and kidnap tonight for saying that, but I'm not. I don't believe God instituted a man on earth to be revered and respected as the mouthpiece for God. I believe the Holy Spirit was left for us, through the Word of God, the Bible. And that's all we need.
Now people may say, "what's wrong with the pope? His Popeness?" Well when he comes out and makes a statement than non-Catholics aren't true "churches" I have a problem with that.
He states well that Christ founded only one church. Very true. (Matthew 16) And I have no problem with people who think that their faith is the only truly correct one. Obviously you believe your church/congregation is doing things right, or you wouldn't be there. But this is an awfully divisive thing for the spiritual leader of a religion to say.
While we ought to be unifying, and the pope says he's willing to work toward that, he says if you don't believe in him, then all bets are off.
I suppose it's all pretty much common sense, but I just can't believe he said it out loud. And documented it. Then released it.
There is nothing in the bible that indicates you need an interpreter, that you need a pope, or anything like that to worship God and be saved from your sins. Nothing. Sorry Mr. Pope.
Bishop: I really enjoy working with young people such as yourself down at our new Youtheran Center... Why don't you drop by sometime, eh?
Danny Noonan: I've often thought of entering the Priesthood.
Bishop: Oh, are you a Roman Catholic?
Bishop: Oh, then I'm sorry, but I'm afraid you can't come.
Anyway, this story is about the new battle mode in GH3. They also touch on how the co-op mode from GH2 will be extended so two players can go through career mode instead of just quick play the songs.
I also saw a little nugget about the controllers. More specifically the Wii controller which I don't really care about. But they talk about all the guitars that will be available for GH3 as well right here. Judging from the fact that the Wii-specifica guitar has a Wii-mote in it, it appears that they are making a Les Paul guitar controller and a controller modeled after a famous Kramer guitar. I don't know what the original model was called, but Kramer is making a new version of this guitar called the 1984 after Eddie Van Halen's famous red and white striped Kramer. But this one is black.
Most people will call it a Fender Stratocaster because of the body style, but the headstock is all Kramer and that is the difference.

Click right here and you will get whisked away to a story from MTV on the mysterious trailer for a movie by Alias and Lost creator J. J. Abrams. In the story you get plenty of speculation and no answers, which makes this even more mysterious. Some of the theories are that it's a Godzilla reboot, a Voltron movie, or a completely original story. Whatever the case, there is no title for this movie (even though you see the words Bad Robot before it starts, Bad Robot being J. J. Abrams' production company) and the trailer never really let's us see anything, but it rules none the rest.
So despite how Julie and I felt about Transformers the movie, you need to go see it specifically for this mystery trailer. Do it, NOW!!!
In this episode we discuss a possible theme song change, an old myth, our fireworks displays, synonyms for the word brothel and Julie and Pat's trip to the track.
In TV we discuss Big Brother 8 and Evil Dick and we also mention Ice Road Hookers, Deadliest Catch and the great Burn Notice.
Then in movies, we discuss Transformers, Fantastic Four: Rise O' the Silver Turd, Ghost Suckster, 711 Ocean Drive, Meet Me in St. Louis, Marathon Man, and Support Your Local Sheriff!
Then Dustin and Lee discuss their trip to Olive Garden and Stone Cold Creamery and Julie tries to guess our cost.
Then we finish strong with Rock Band, a dude changes his name to Megatron, an 11 year old gets a DUI, a woman sells her special flower, a public service announcment about smoking while jumping on an oil tank, and a condom snatch and grab.
Whew, try to make it through that in one sitting. As always, you can send us your thoughts and stories to firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a message on our myspace page. You can also download and listen to the show at bombaygunrunners.com or look us up on iTunes.
