Elmore "Rip" Torn, Bank Ninja
— Dave in Texas

Slow Saturday night. Man I miss making dumb football picks.

Actor Elmore "Rip" Torn was arrested Friday night for allegedly breaking into a Main Street bank intoxicated, armed with a loaded revolver.

Highly intoxicated, according to the story.

More..

Police have declined to specify how Torn allegedly entered the bank. The small bank appeared untouched in the front and on its left and right sides, however one window near the back porch of the bank had a board sitting in front of it. A screen resting adjacent to the window was also torn.

That's pretty much all a ninja needs, a bottle of Jim Beam and a board.

2 Is that the guy who was a flamer and used to make his game show entrance to tons of confetti?  Didn't he have a handlebar mustache and longish blond hair?

3 Here's another one for a slow Saturday night.  I still have no interest in the pageant, but learning that “Rush Limbaugh has exceptionally impressive fist pumping skills” makes my day.

Perhaps he can challenge Barry to a dance-off, knowing full well Barry won't accept because he'll lose.

It's the only explanation that doesn't involve Rip Torn having a lemon party with Gary Busey.

Sounds more like he's always been at the bottom of the hill; only fame seems to have gotten him off the hook in the past. 

Given the seriousness of this latest stunt, I suspect his fame account just went into overdraft and there will be penalties.  I'm thinking he needs to spend the rest of his ambulatory life in prison.  Let him out when he needs a wheelchair and a nursing home.

At 2p.m. we had 11.5" on the ground at Richmond International Airport via Scanner report and I only live about 2 miles from there. I'm guessing at least 18"-20" on the ground here now and its still snowing, albeit lightly now.

I'm not snowed in, just got back from a store run and I had no problems whatsoever. I've got a Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4x4. Went right through it like a jack-rabbit. However, the same cannot be said for the dipshits I see out in little compacts sliding into ditches and getting hung up on snowbanks. The roads are full of 'em.

purple avenger:  the dumb as shit weather people predicted that southern parts of Virginia would get 12-18" of snow & Richmond would get around 6".  naturally, they had their forecasts completely backwards.

other than being a politician, being a weatherperson is the only other job where you are paid to lie to vast amounts of the general public.

If I remember correctly, Amin died of complications brought on by advanced cirrhosis of the liver. Also he had hepatitis I believe. He was a notorious drinker

Whatever happened to Spurwing, anyway? I remember he was a heavy commenter for a long time, then poof.

And Rip is not going into my dead pool yet. I sense he is pickled well enough to last a little longer. I have Dennis Hopper, Jeff Conaway, Pete Doherty, Tila Tequila & Lindsay Lohan in mine. Linds gets moved in and out, depending on the amount of falling down drunk pics I see of her on TMZ.

Damn, just looked at IMDB and it says Rip Torn played in "Dead Ahead: The Exxon Valdez Disaster". He should have totally played Capt. Hazelwood in it. What a waste of raw talent.

haha, I just found it in the thread about Katie (Señor Wences face) Couric dirty dancing at a wedding. hmmm, I guess I didn't like it that much.

--------
speaking of movies...

Pandorum, starring Dennis Quaid and someone named Ben Foster. Um, not as bad as Battlefield Earth, but not as good as District 9, which wasn't that good.

Pandorum is Planet of the Apes meets I Am Legend meets Alien.

5/10 stars

Its a rip off of a whole bunch of sci-fi movies, but these days most every movie is a rip-off of something. However, from the middle on, its pretty original.

148 #147- Some people like Winehouse just get boring to keep in the pool. She is an honorary member, however. Besides, her heroin buddy Pete Doherty took drugs with him to court the other day. To his drug arrest hearing. That says to me that he is heading down the chute quickly.

152 Let me tell you from experience.

I have discovered that the older I get, the more shit I can get away with.  I can flirt outrageously and the soft ones think I'm 'cute'.  I can tell people exactly what I think of them and just get blank 'he's having a senior moment' stares.  I can get out of physical labor just by being there.

It works on everyone but my wife.

Oh, how the mighty washed-up third-string Hollywood B-listers have falled.

------ ---- ------ --------- ------- ------ ------

Also: Pandorum.

Gorier than expected, kind of let the monster out of the bag too soon. Cliche-ridden, a few glaring plot holes, but given the sad state of Sci-Fi at the moment, worth a shot. Someone wake me when a real sci-fi movie comes out.

Some good acting performances hampered by the script. The main plot element (after which the movie is named) is poorly-explained psuedo-science on the level of 50's popcorn sci-fi. The ecology doesn't work either.
