That was actually quite funny!! They may have been slamming the movie, but it was well humored, enjoyable slamming :P

I just got back from London where I saw the famous Joshua Reynolds painting of Banastre Tarleton.

Angel, I thought of you. ;-)

So that's where you've been!! Hit all the right places, apparently! Welcome back, and I hope the rest of the trip lived up to that highlight!

As there's not a lot happening here in The Land of the Lost Girls, :weed I thought I might as well post this.

Last night I watched the most recent episode of Sleepy Hollow, which, "K", a poster on another board I frequent, described as:
... about Ichabod Crane being a spy for George Washington during the revolutionary war having a spell cast on him and the headless horseman, who is the 4th horseman of the apocalypse, putting them to sleep for 350 years...


While doing my leg-raises, :oops: , I jumped up, having overheard a familiar name. Apparently Ichabod's commanding officer during the revolution was one "Colonel Tarleton". This incarnation of the real-life man is much worse than Jason's; he is actually a demon. :twisted:

This phenomenon, of finding Jason anywhere, is what I like to call, "Desperate for news."

Or maybe it's just 6 degrees of Jason.

I saw that too Fruitbat - I got all excited and looked at my DH and said do you know who that is?? Then proceeded to give him the Tavington - Tarleton education. LOL

And the actor in Sleepy Hollow seems to be doing a wonderful rendition of Jason as Tavington. Kinda resembles him, too.

Dang it. I've been watching Sleepy Hollow (and really enjoying it), but I often only come in on the last half, because I've been distracted during the first half by things I have to do for real life. So I've managed to miss most of the first-halves (and while it's a great show, it's not so deep that I can't figure out what happened in the first part). Ditto for this past Monday. I will have to go and watch it on-demand now, since I missed that reference. How fun! Thanks, fruitbat!!

Well, Tarleton managed to come out of the war smelling like roses, so I suspect Tavington would have too, if he'd managed to kill off Martin first. First rule for baddies: No long monologues about how you've won UNTIL AFTER you kill the good guy. Geesh.

A tweet from Roland Emmerich (director of The Patriot) on the occasion of his recent 58th birthday...

Nice picture.
Should have used the flash?
Thanks for sharing, Revenante :D

Found this today. It's a funny description of The Patriot.

That was pretty funny. I mean I knew it was a corny movie but some of the things pointed out had me in stitches.
