Friday night lights

Last night my wife and I went out with a friend.. we went to see people we know perform at the Hollywood Casino in Grantville. The band is Sapphire. They are great. You should check them out. It was a great time.. but as someone who doesn’t go out too much these days, I was left with perplexing questions:

1) Why are older males who are single wearing sweaters at casinos ? And why do they have a creepy look and wink at older women who are dancing (and dancing in very inappropriate ways for their age at that)? Seriously, this guy made me want to instantly report him to police, somewhere. I bet there’s at least three bodies along the I-81 corridor that he knows all about..

2) Are people ballroom dancing everywhere now? Seriously.. this man who looked a little like a cross between my own brother an the character HAROLD from THE STAND was rocking his ballroom skills on the casino dance floor.. He was with a woman, but at times she just stood back when his feet caught on fire.. he did some weird move where he gyrated his hips and thrust his pelvis towards her while he was motioning his hair back and then, out of no where, would start twisting her around. All that set to the songs from the 1980s including KISS ME DEADLY. Not sure I can hear anything again without thinking of his slender and odd body motioning through the crowd — obviously trying to get more attention than the main attraction.. 

3) Food shouldn’t be served unless it’s actual food. I got chicken tenders. Or something. I think they were meat—but not quite sure they were the meat of a chicken.

My observations are based off of being a dad and typically staying in Friday and Saturday late nights.

Although with a successful sleep process that our awesome babysitter had with our son, maybe we can get out there more. But probably not to any hopeless and smoke-filled gambling hall of a casino for a bit..

I need to brush up on my dance skills. Since I’m married, I won’t need the tight sweater.

People are weird.. 

Egads Egan! It’s XXX-MEN

Update: Michael Egan, Bryan Singer’s accuser, alleges a number of rapes by Hollywood moguls..  

Egan said the FBI and police were made aware of the allegations in 2000, but nothing came from those cases.. and something similar to what Corey Feldman has been saying for years: Allegations are being made in this case that Egan and other minors were ‘passed around like pieces of meat’ at the supposed sex orgies.. 

For now: Singer and his lawyers are doing what they can to besmirch the person accusing.. this is something that undoubtedly is going to play out big time in the media. . 

The other monetary question: What does FOX do now about the release of X-MEN?  It’s release date is next month.. And FOX is left scrambling and Singer has skipped this weekend’s WonderCon Fanfest..  the joke already is being made: X-MEN 2 should be renamed XXX-MEN ..  

Fanboys and fanmen are already debating the movie release—and the Singer allegations. Just look at how heated the comments thread is becoming on AINT IT COOL.. 

Also check some of the comments on my original story posted yesterday on this matter..

Wow

CNN reports this morning: The vice principal of Ansan Danwon High School, who was rescued from the sunken South Korean ferry, was found hanging from a tree, police said Friday. The school had hundreds of students aboard the doomed ferry.
Police did not offer more information about the death.

Just a big big wow..

Astronomers spot most Earth-like planet yet »

Exciting stuff…

An earth-like planet..

Unless it’s us.. a mirror image. The alternate reality.

Nah…

It’s Catholic foot fetish time.
The ‘holy week’ goes into high gear with Holy Thursday, the night when priests unwrap the feet of the congregation and wash them. And often kiss them. 
Just like Jesus.
I sure hope your feet don’t look like this if you’re a chosen one:

The Lord Jesus, after eating with his friends, washed their feet and said, “I don’t think I’ll ever do that shit ever again”

Students trapped in sinking ferry send heartbreaking text messages »

If you’re looking for your heart wrenching and gut churning cry for the day, look no further than the story about the text messages on the South Korean ferry that sunk..

Undoubtedly, many of the people who were sending text messages have not yet been located and are among the almost 300 people still considered ‘missing’..

People laughed at Corey Feldman.. but he may have been right..

X-MEN director Bryan Singer accused of sexually abusing a teenage old boy at his California mansion..  The story is disturbing if true: The federal lawsuit alleges that Singer drugged and raped the boy in 1999..  the WRAP obtained information and published the name of the accuser—though the lawyers issued a press release actually publishing the accused name themselves.. And releasing next month: X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST. Looks like the past may be haunting Snger this month.

When I read or hear stories in relation to what Bryan Singer may have done (or any other Hollywood star for that matter), I always think back to the words uttered on numerous occasions by Corey Feldman and the pedophile industry in Hollywood..  I always found what Feldman has been saying on this subject to have merit..

And you probably always know what I am wondering about Peaches Geldof.. 

Yes indeed people can be sick..
