Yippee-ki-yay, motherfucker!

Just finished watching Die Hard 4.0 (“Live Free or Die Hard” for North American readers). It’s left me with more testosterone than I know what to do with, assholes. Sorry, I promise I’ll stop now. One observation though, when all of the computers in the U.S. were going down like a brick on Jupiter, it was a Mac, or rather Mac (Justin Long), that saved the day. Coincidence, I think not!

Now onto the meat of the blog (no more turkey sandwiches please). Got a good collection of stuff this christmas (although obviously Christmas is about giving and donkeys and…), in no particular order and in no way exhaustive:

  • Toilet roll sudoku;
  • Finger drums;
  • Colour changing alarm clock;
  • OS X Leopard;
  • Sat-Nav;
  • Curtis (gi-gi-gu…g-unit);
  • Biography of Duane Chapman.

Who is Duane Chapman? Duane is one of my heroes. Duane was abused as a child, got into drugs, joined a biker gang, was jailed for murder-one (he didn’t do it), has spawned several offspring – whom have been unfairly taken from him on more than one occasion, has had several wives…he is…Dog the Bounty Hunter!* If there has ever been an example of a man with an excuse for flipping the bird to the world, it is him. He is the first to admit he has made mistakes, but he has never given up. His story, or at least the first half as that is all I have read, is simply amazing. You may well know that I am not exactly God fearing, but Dog is, and if I was him then I might be too! I don’t agree with all of the choices that he has made in his life, but his never say die attitude and desire to serve fellow human beings ensures that he is still one of my heroes. In Dog we trust!

Here is a list of some of my other heroes. If anyone is interested, then I might elaborate on why they sit alongside the Dog.

  • Vincent Kennedy McMahon;
  • Willard Smith III;
  • Paul Teutul Senior;
  • Public Enemy;
  • Pink;
  • George Brown (my great grandad);
  • Matthew Charles Sanders (M. Shadows of A7X);
  • Shami Chakrabarti;
