Over in Fort Myers is a movie theater called the Regal Gulf Coast Stadium 16 and every once in awhile when there's a lull in new releases, they'll put up an old classic film for a day. Such was the case last month when purely by accident, I happened to check what they were showing that day and HOWLEEE-SHEYAT, it's Raiders of the Lost Ark. Like the original movie. Up on the big screen. I can honestly say that I don't know if I ever saw it in the theaters when it first came out; if I did I was too young to remember it. Needless to say I fucking jumped at it and giggled like a school girl throughout the entire movie. The only scene I didn't get a snapshot of was Indy vs the Swordsman, and yes I know all about Harrison Ford's diarrhea. Here's some more behind the scenes trivia: stuntman Pat Roach was the only actor (besides Harrison Ford, duh) to be in all three of the Indiana Jones movies. Yes, I said THREE movies, not FOUR because as far as I'm concerned there are only three. Anyway, besides his turn as the ill-fated German mechanic who gets chewed up by the airplane propeller, Roach also played an mine guard who gets crushed on a conveyer belt in Temple of Doom, and a Gestapo guard in The Last Crusade. Plus this short documentary discusses the history and analyzes the differences between Indiana Jones's fedoras in the original trilogy. But here's the real fucking corker, at least to me anyway. Ethiopian Orthodox Christians believe that a small church in their country contains a very special relic. For in this shrine, it is said, is the artifact that fascinated Indiana Jones and spelled doom for a host of evil Nazis in Spielberg's much loved ‘80s classic Raiders of the Lost Ark. Yes, this little house in Aksum, Ethiopia, is many believe, the home of the one true and original Ark of the Covenant. Anyway, I'm hoping the theater gets their hands on Temple of Doom and Last Crusade and then the magic of the Indiana Jones universe will be complete!
Spanning 40 years and including 100 films, Oliver Reed's career began with Hammer Horror films but soon developed into international stardom. In May 1999 he died while making another film, the hit blockbuster Gladiator. During his life, he became equally well-known for his off-screen exploits and blunt opinions but Cliff Goodwin reveals another side to this complex man, using material from first-hand interviews with Reed's family, friends and colleagues, together with never-before-seen photographs. Evil Spirits: The Life of Oliver Reed contains first-hand interviews with some of Reed's family, friends and colleagues, plus photographs from the family album Gladiator, Reed's last film, was dedicated to him and his performance was well reviewed by the critics.
And today in fucking BIZARRO WORLD, Kate Upton was kicked out of the Santa Monica pier after someone actually fucking complained about her nudity during a photoshoot she was doing. it seems she'd suffered something of a wardrobe malfunction while on a amusement park ride. In related news, the Santa Monica pier is full of jealous bitter old soccer moms.

Ernie, Love the site, I've made a few contributions over the years and thought you would like this one. I help out with a race team that races off-road in Mexico and the States. The team has an unlimited class vehicle called a trophy truck and we were fortunate enough to be asked by Hot Rod magazine to test it against a Boss Mustang and a Ford Raptor. The trophy truck had just finished a race from Vegas to Reno, over 500 race miles, was washed and went straight to the track. Typically the truck is torn down to the frame and rebuilt after each race, and the engine is freshened up after about a thousand miles of use, so, it wasn't at it's very best. Still, not a bad showing. Look for it in the magazine's fiftieth anniversary edition. Scott
If you're a big sports fan, you probably knew that there was a professional lacrosse league. But did you know that there are two professional lacrosse leagues (the NLL and the MLL)? And that both of them have cheerleaders? Well, they do. And while these cheerleading squads aren't nearly as hot as the squads you'll see at an NFL game, or an NBA game, or a college football game, or... well, pretty much any other type of game where there are cheerleaders... they're still cheerleaders. And who doesn't love cheerleaders? So today I present you with my take on the 15 hottest pro lacrosse cheerleaders. Have a look—maybe it'll make you want to check out a lacrosse game some time. And in case you didn't get the point…cheerleaders, cheerleaders, cheerleaders.
