the dude from thrashin'

i'm extra proud of this one. i just watched last night's (1/23/06) episode of 24. in the 2nd half-hour, a henchman is let into CTU by another henchman. the henchman that is let in is the bad guy from the ridiculous 1986 movie thrashin'. sadly there are no good pictures of him in thrashin', but i was amazed to see that the dude is still alive.

-if you don't know about, thrashin', here's a good link that summarizes the whole movie with pics.
-here's the only thrashin' picture of the guy that i could find
-here's the dude's imdb profile, notice thrashin' (playing tommy hook) and 24 (playing hank)

unite

let's all get together and agree on a couple things:
  1. we all know that when we're done leaving a voicemail, we can either hang up or press 1 for more options ... stop telling us. side note, we all also know that i can push 5 to send a numeric page now. just give us the damn beep.
  2. when the senior high school picture guy says, "ok now just touch your hand to your chin," DON'T!
  3. we don't need extra song titles in parentheses in order to help us realize what song it really is. examples:
    1. pride (in the name of love) - u2
    2. rebellion (lies) - arcade fire
    3. leave (get out) - jojo - my personal fav
    4. why can we remove the parenthetical titles? because this conversation has never happened:
      • you like that song, "leave"?
      • huh, "leave"? don't think i've heard that one. -- OH! you mean "get out"?! YES! that song totally rules my ass.
