JimmieJoe as Toto – Lions and Tigers and Bears! OH MY!


JimmieJoe as Toto?  I did a bit of a double take, too!

The local newspaper, The Visalia Times-Delta, has, as many online portals for media do, a section available for people to post blogs.  Recently, the editor asked for people what their favorite romantic movie was.  One blog poster chose “The Wizard of Oz”.  As is wont of many bloggers, it triggered other thoughts, and inspired a blog.

In this blog, found here, LittleDharma wonders who among the regular posters on the VTD’s site would play various roles if cast into the movie version of The Wizard of Oz.

I won the coveted role of Toto, Dorothy’s lovable if somewhat easily distracted dog.  Here’s what LittleDharma said about casting me as Toto:

Then we have the precious role of Toto, Dorothy’s dog.  This part is played by Jim93277.  Don’t laugh!  I gave this a lot of thought.  Jim knows who bark at and who to leave alone.  A prudent man … er dog.  Jim is just the guy who will lift his leg and give the villains a squirt on their spats.  While intelligent, he still needs Dorothy to remind him, “Toto, we’re not in Kansas any more.”  Hope he squirts on the Wicked Witch of the West.

I’m getting a big kick out of this one.  Read the entire blog here.

UPDATE: 2/1/11 The Times-Delta has pulled the blog, “reviewing” it!  Someone must have taken offense, and clicked the “report abuse” button about a gazillion times.  Put it back, TD.

ET Exonerated; Cow Deaths Not Work of UFOs, or Black Helicopters

The Huffington Post Travis Walter Donovan

200 cows that were found dead in Wisconsin on January 14 were not killed by aliens, black helicopters, or a cow-tipping prank gone horribly wrong.  After lab analysis of the dead animals and samples of their feed, officials are reporting that moldy sweet potatoes caused the cows to suffer from pneumonia, quickly causing their deaths.

Officials say this is not the first time sweet potato mold has killed farm animals.  While rare, it does happen from time to time.  Here‘s the Huffington Post article.

…  yeah.  That’s what they WANT you to believe!  The truth after the jump!


Assuming the worst

Assuming the worst:
He calls 9-1-1 to report a vehicle parked in his driveway, with a Hispanic man in the car. Caller tells 9-1-1 “he’s a criminal”. How does he know that? The man told him, in poor English, that he “doesn’t want the police to see him”. He called at shift change, so there’s no deputy available right then. 30 minutes later he’s on 9-1-1 again, mad as hell that there’s not a cop there yet about this ‘criminal’. He’s rude to the operator, (me) and also to Tulare PD dispatchers. Our unit and a Tulare PD Sargent arrive to check it out.
The gentleman was talking on his cellphone, “and didn’t want the police to see him”… on the phone while driving.

Gay Porn Star – Straight and Married (via Queer Landia)

Leave a comment

Gay Porn Star - Straight and Married Meet Reece “Jacobs” (AKA Reece Rideout) and his wife Becki.  He’s a porn star.  A gay porn star.  Not a gay man who is in porn, but a man who is in gay porn. But he’s straight.  I know, it’s confusing, right? UK magazine Marie Claire has an article about the Oregon couple in the February 2011 issue, where Becki talks about being married to a man who has gay sex on camera for a living.  She says she’s OK with it, and prefers it to him having sex o … Read More

Being Human – Or Trying

BEING HUMAN -- Season: 1 -- Pictured: (l-r) Sam Huntington as Josh, Meaghan Rath as Sally, Sam Witwer as Aidan -- Photo by: Jill Greenberg/Syfy

So Great Britain sends us another quirky story to make over in our own setting.  A ghost, a vampire, and a werewolf set up housekeeping in the former home of the ghost and her husband.  The husband is the landlord, the ghost is trying to be seen by him, and the werewolf and the vampire are simply trying to get through each day not killing anyone.

I’ve watched the first two episodes so far, and I’m liking it.  It has some dark tones, some light tones, and a good mix of clever humor.

I’ll be watching it more to see where it goes, and if they can keep it interesting.  I hope it doesn’t devolve into some kind of Ghost/Vampire/Werewolf 90210 idiocy, but we’ll have to see.  Good writing so far, and maybe having it’s roots in British television will help.

God save the Queen.  And the hot vampire.  The werewolf’s not half bad, either.
