I was a huge fan of HBO's The Wire. In fact now that I think about it, I'm a fan of most of HBO's gritty series: The Wire, Oz, The Sopranos, Deadwood, Weastbound and Down, and to a certain degree, Entourage. The latter is kind of like Sex in the City, for men. But getting back to The Wire, its interesting to see how those careers continued on while others have fallen off into obsurity. Lance Reddick (Cedric Daniels) is currently starring on the hit TV show Fringe. Seth Gilliam (he played Carver, but sorry Seth is a weird name for a black guy) has kind of bounced around with no real stability. I just watched Dominic West in Centurion. Aidan Gillen played Mayor Tommy Carcetti.... wait, who? Exactly. Domenick Lombardozzi (Herc) scored a few guest appearances on Entourage, but nothing else of real substance. Michael Williams - muthafuckin OMAR - has returned to HBO not buidling bookcases on Boardwalk Empire. Michael Kostroff -- aka Mauruce Levy, Esquire -- is on a series called Sonny With a Chance? I dunno, never seen or heard of it. Isiah Whitlock, sheeeeeeeeeet, you probably know him as State Senator Clay Davis? he's got a supporting role in a new movie called Cedar Rapids where he makes a not-so-subtle reference to The Wire. Although I think the most promising part about that movie will be seeing Anne Heche's tits even if you do need a Valtrex prescription. And finally, Marlo stanfield had a role on Heroes, but nothing since. I just wish they had included Idris Elba (Stringer Bell), who was in a movie that I thought was fucking awesome.

Update on Light Up this Christmas Tree. I had improved my score to an even 40,000 and I thought I was pretty bad ass until Andrew came along with 42,700. And he thought he was bad ass until John lit up a 42,900.
He’s fought a bull, he’s taken on a police dog, he’s been electrocuted, punched, kicked, dropped, flung and flattened in every conceivable manner, and he’s even lifted Shaq on his back! It is of course the inimitable Jason ‘Wee-Man’ Acuña. Yes, the Jackass star and pro skateboarder may not be the strongest – despite lifting Shaquille O’Neil in an infamous YouTube video – but he must surely be the toughest vertically challenged person on the planet. Weeman has been part of the Jackass crew since their conception, and has gone on to star in three full-length movies and a TV series, while being painfully pranked all along the way. Yess, Weeman truly is one of the badest midgets in history. Oh, he also took a tennis serve from Serena Williams, right in the nuts.
