Change....Not Always Good...or Noticeable

Better  hop on the bandwagon now before the new season comes around.   NFL’s Carolina Panthers are looking to rock your favorite team’s butt for many years to come.  Their dark days are long over. The new era has just begun.  OK...maybe that was a little over the top.

The clubhouse has changed their logo for the new season.  Look at the "New" vs the "Old" logo.  Can you see the new fierceness ?  I hope team owner Jerry Richardson didn't come the hip with too much cash for this tepid attempt at change.

Lets thin the herd.......

1. The artist that submitted this new Carolina Panthers logo.

2. Rocky Mozzell.  The pitchman for the Star Registry. How would you feel if you got THAT for Valentines Day?

Then and Now....Predications from a decade ago

Now that some of the political dust has settled here in South Carolina I thought I would ignore the body politic for a period of time.  Then I ran across a video from 2002.  That’s right a 10 year old video of a speech given by the least popular candidate…Ron Paul.

Dr. Paul’s message hasn’t cut through the majority of the clutter…and it hadn’t made much of an impact on me either.  That is…until now.  What makes this YouTube video so interesting is the lengthy series of predications representative Paul proffered.  Even more interesting is they ALL have come true.  Ten years ago he had no idea what party would control the Congress or the Presidency.

The entire clip is 6 minutes long…and as you see the resulting headlines juxtaposed to his predications….keep in mind the headlines are current….and the predictions are a decade old.

It’s important you understand I am not “endorsing” Dr. Paul…..his platform or his candidacy..in fact I didn’t vote for him Saturday during the primary.  I only found his accuracy pretty impressive.  Anything beyond that is up to your own ideals

Another Big weekend.

The weather sucked.


The choices on TV were slim..Especially with the political ads strewn everywhere.
I voted early Saturday morning and decided to watch a DVD from Netflix.  Don’t ge me started on how much I LOVE Netflix
I settled on Moneyball with Brad Pitt.

 Now….I’ve never been a big Brad Pitt fan…but I wanted to see this movie.
I see this morning it was  nominated for an academy award. I enjoyed it….especially since it was based on actual events.


Before I forget…its time to thin the herd


1 The Captain of the cruise ship that is currently laying on its side on the coast of Italy. 
Looks like the Skipper and Gilligan had a better ratio of survivors when the storm took the USS Minnow

.
2 The ass-hats from Westboro Baptist Church.  They plan to attend the funeral for Joe Paterno….and protest gays in America.  I don’t advocate violence here…BUT…..

3 Steven Tyler. Steve…..I love ya…please don’t ever do the national Anthem in public again. Please.

After a "brief"pause.....The Return of Wilsons Blog

 Well looky here. Old Lar has done gone and started a blog.

Now I could give you a number of reasons why I haven’t written a blog since August.  The truth is I got bored with myself and the things I wrote.  So, my thinking was why bore both of us?

Anyway I’ve been badgered by a huge number of people to write again.  Truthfully, its only been three folks: my sister, the web mistress and my boss.  I figured while I needed to make one happy, I could throw in the other two for free.

A lot has gone on since our last “conversation”, but there is no point dredging up old news and the most recent development is Rick Perry pulled out of the republican primary earlier today.  Lets face it….Governor Perry was just a slightly more articulate version of George W. Bush.  

Finally, some sad news. Johnny Otis, the "godfather of rhythm and blues" who wrote and recorded the R&B classic "Willie and the Hand Jive" and for decades evangelized black music to white audiences as a bandleader and radio host, has died. He was 90.
Otis, who had been in poor health for several years, died at his home in the Los Angeles foothill suburb of Altadena 
 
So with all that being said lets revive a feature from the beginning days of this blog.  Kids, its time to “thin the herd.”

First - The advisors for Mitt Romney that thought it was a good idea to call my house three times a day with a recorded message. I also appreciate their apparent need to spend an increasing amount of cash on printing and postage.  I’ve averaged 2.5 pieces of mail from his campaign alone.

Second – Lady Gaga. For being…well..Lady Gaga.  A latter day version of Madonna.

Third – The Pastor and members of Westboro Baptist Church.  A collection of gas bags that have no respect for the hurt  they cause.”F” em.

So there you have it.  I promise the next post will arrive sooner than later….but not necessarily any better 
Stay loose.
