Disappointed!!! Only Hollywood can turn a Great Bible Story - "NOAH" into a madman, almost baby killer with transporter size like talking boulders with another insane Killer that is able to stow away on board the Ark. My advice don't waste YOUR Time or Money. Actor Russell Crowe should be embarrassed beyond belief for portraying such a wicked and lunatic Noah character. Hollyweird sure showed its horrible colors in the making of this film. I saw several people walk out during the movie, I kept thinking or wishing it would get better. Silly ME!!! 2 Thumbs down and 2 Middle Fingers to Hollywood!! No Bueno pelicula!
Let me tell You about my best friend, well not my absolute best friend, but a Compadre that I admire and of whose business and marketing sense is second to none. Don Laughlin is who I speak of, the rogue businessman, gambler with roots from Minnesota that told Las Vegas to kiss his ass and he built his own Casino Resort Getaway on the banks of the beautiful and scenic Colorado River across the bridge from Bullhead City, Arizona. http://www.riversideresort.com/ Don Laughlin's Riverside Resort Hotel and Casino was founded and established in 1966 as Laughlin, Nevada’s first hotel and casino. Yes, I’ve known Don now for about 21 Black Jack Years, the last 7 of which I have not gambled, thanks to a great organization called GA (Gamblers Anonymous). If You’ve ever lost time from work or school due to gambling, There is HOPE! http://www.gamblersanonymous.org/ga/ On April 6th, 2007 in the early morning hours I placed my last bet in Caesars Palace, which was my gambling establishment of choice, even before Hang Over the movie was made and I’ve partied with Zach Galifiankis in Vegas Baby! Thanks to the help of GA and My Dear LORD, I no longer have the urge to purchase a lottery ticket, enter a raffle or place any sort of bet – I’m not bragging, just letting You know that if You believe You might have a problem, there is help out there. Any Addiction is Bad, when it interferes with Your Family, Work, School or consumes your time, thinking and most of your hard earned dinero. No One is of Perfection and sometimes we need Love, Understanding and Help. Don’t be afraid to seek it if You need it.
Getting back to Laughlin and my buddy Don, I told him this last time I visited his town that I had 4 heroes of which he was one. The others were / are Conrad Hilton, Clint Eastwood and my mother’s favorite actor – Mr. John Wayne. I respect Laughlin and Hilton for their business sense and overcoming all odds of starting small and growing tall. Clint Eastwood because he is not afraid to go against the grain of Hollywood and tells it like it is – believes in Patriotism and Freedom and tells the world what he thinks of Obama and his lousy leadership despite what most others in Tinsel Town say. Clint didn’t like Obama before it was cool to dislike Obama as his backers continue to diminish. John Wayne, I like because of his acting and because my mother adored him. True Grit!!! Well, I never got my picture taken with the other three, but I did get a photo with Don on my last trip to his Riverside Resort, “Where the Customer is King” with 26 different reasons why You or I should choose his establishment over any of the others that line the river banks, proudly displayed on his bar napkins. After hangin’ with Mr. Laughlin for an hour or so, I made my way to Losers Lounge to see the band Groove Inc. with lead singer Brian from Queens, NY and the band members from Kansas City, MO.
Bike Week in Cave Creek and Scottsdale, AZ lasted from March 28th until April 6th, 2014. That is one long week of 10 days which is actually 1/3 of a month Bike Days. I had a book signing on both Friday evening and all day Saturday of April 4th & 5th at Hogs N’ Horses http://cavecreeklive.com/hogs-n-horses-cave-creek , owned by Amigo TC Thorstenson, the Buffalo Trainer and Rider and also walked across the street at my other Amigo’s bar, the Hideaway Grill http://www.hideaway-usa.com/ owned by biker Mark Bradshaw to visit with friends and have a cocktail of margarita laced with Azunia Tequila. http://www.azuniatequila.com/
Lame is how I would describe the last episode of “How I Met Your Mother.” Barney Stinson aka Doogie Howser aka Neil Patrick Harris is a dumbass actor whose character should have been killed off at least 2 years ago to save the show of his weak and pointless pick-up lines. His character was pathetic as was the entire last episode. You would think with a gang of Hollywood writers they could have, would have, should have come up with a much better ending to a show that has nine years of belly fat hanging over its belt. Glad, ecstatic that M.D. (mad dog) Doogie or Doggie will have to move on and will no longer inhabit my television set. Adios to YOU and those kids’ mother.
RIP Mickey Rooney passed away on April 6th at 93 years of age. Thank YOU for being one of Hollywood's brightest stars in the 1930s and 1940s.
RIP Peaches Geldof age 25, the daughter of Bob Geldof and the late Paula Yates was pronounced dead in Wrotham, England. The death is being treated as unexplained and sudden according to police. Peaches mother died of an overdose when Peaches was only 11 years young. Ironically her last tweet was an Instagram of herself and her mother Paula Yates. “Me and my mum,” tweeted Peaches on April 6th, 2014. When I read this story it reminded me of a love I lost long ago when I was 18 years naive, to a girl named Peaches who lived along the banks of the Snake River in a small town called Glenns Ferry, Idaho. I remember driving my 1976 Rally Sport Camaro 102 miles each way from my home in Marsing, Idaho also situated along the Snake River to see my beautiful Peaches who now lives somewhere in Southern California with a family of her own.
Stay tuned next month as I travel on an adventure of a Writing and Riding Riot with the Drivers of the NORRA Baja 1000 coming soon to a Baja Peninsula near you with Drivers and Vintage Cars being fueled with Mexico’s finest Azunia Tequila. https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/the-general-tire-norra-mexican-1000-conquistadors-de-baja-1971
