I wish I knew someone personally that looked like Lee Marvin. Or maybe I do.. I guess I’ll have to think it over. I always thought Ron Perlman looked relatively like Tom Waits.. (Perlman is best known for Hellboy, he was also in Jean-Pierre Jeunet’s dystopian French fantasy film The City of Lost Children, which is amazing if you’ve not seen it yet! Clip is below.) If I ever meet any of the Sons I’m recommending the induction of Perlman. I suppose his eyebrow structure isn’t quite up to par (going by Lee standards) How did Neil Young make it in?
Before I sign off let me remind you to sign Conan’s petition. I think the world will probably end pretty soon. Haiti just took on a 7.0 earthquake, Florida is freezing (literally), Jay Leno took back Conan’s slot, reality television has hit an all-time low, robots are likely to turn on us at any point now.. it’s all dwindling down, and fast. (I just hope it doesn’t happen before the season premier of Lost/)
You know, I was also thinking earlier about how the world would be if instead of physical warfare governments just solved things via modern warfare II.. it would make so much more sense.
Have a good evening/morning,
