Savage Similarities

If you're arriving from Theme Thursday you probably know where this is going. If not play along and see if you can tell what the following 10 pictures have in common.











All these pics have the theme "wild" in common. Let's check:
1. Wild West hero Wild Bill Hickock
2. A great book and even greater movie directed by Sean Penn Into The Wild
3. Nicolas Cage in the David Lynch film Wild At Heart
4. A funny, funny take on weekend warriors the film Wild Hogs
5. "Sticky Fingers" is the Rolling Stones album with the song Wild Horses

6. This little fella's being sent on a wild goose chase
7. ...ahem...I think these two are from Girls Gone Wild
8. Charlie Sheen aka "Wild Thing" in the movie "Major League"

9. In the 60s the Troggs sang about Charlie's doppleganger Wild Thing
10. And if you made it this far pour yourself a shot of Wild Turkey bourbon
Wasn't that wild?!

Check out Theme Thursday for more wild goings-on today.

Love your sense of humor, and your site. Count me in as a loyal follower!
Don said…
Yes, that was wild. I couldn't come up with the answer though. I kept thinking Raising Arizona and somehow that and the two girls making out was confusing me.
Wings said…
Wild things, indeed!
nonamedufus said…
Brian: And the colored girls sing...

Skip: Well, thank you sir. Welcome aboard.

Don: You're not the only one who had trouble get past those two.

Wings: Yep.

Me-Me: It's great to see you back! I missed your visits.

Alan: Thank you sir. HTTTYT
Dang. I would've had it but I thought that first one was Sheriff Strickland from Back the the Future III.

Oh excellent choices. I really do like Nick Cage but I got so angry at that kid in "Into the Wild" he was so unprepared and stupid. I still feel for his family.
nonamedufus said…
DK: There was a III?

Baino: That was the really tragic part, wasn't it. The poor fella's idealism was only matched by his ineptitude
VE said…
Excellent choices. I missed the connection with the Sticky Fingers album...forgot that song was on it. I read the original article on Into the Wild in Outside magazine; before he wrote the book. I like the article, book and movie too but I think the kid wasn't too bright. He was lucky on a lot of occasions and a bit too risky; there's really no need to be so extreme unless you're looking to die. Still, I agree, powerful movie.

My Back Pages - November

I know, I know, I know I should have reported in before now. But sometimes real life just gets in the way. I attempted 5 books in November. I say attempted because I slapped a big DNF (did not finish) on Neal Stephenson's Cryptonomicon. I just can't seem to get into this guy. It's the second or third of his I've given up on,

Not so the other four, starting with a biography of Stephen Stills called Change Partners. This followed by a hilarious biography of the guy responsible for National Lampoon called A Stupid and Futile Gesture - How Doug Kenney and National Lampoon Changed Comedy Forever.

I ended the month reading yet another biography, this one of the man behind Rolling Stone magazine,. It was called Sticky Fingers: The Life and Times of Jann Wenner and Rolling Stone Magazine. A fascinating read.

So last month I hit the magic number 50 I'd imagined for myself back in January. If I roll this month into my yearly total I'm at 54 books. And I still have Decem…

Paroxysm Paradox

The weather was unseasonably warm for October. The sun set around 6:30 but the daylight hours were quite enjoyable. So thought Richard, as he set out for his daily walk in the woods. He marvelled at the turning leaves which exhibited an explosion of colour more significant with each passing day.

But Richard knew the turning leaves would soon start to fall. And the trees would soon be bare with no leaves at all. And then the snow would fly and fall from the trees as the leaves had before it.

Richard couldn't help but think of the sudden change to come as a seizure of sorts. And he wasn't looking forward to it. After all, who would welcome a seizure, he thought, as he rolled uncontrollably among the leaves.

This week paroxysm/seizure was the prompt at Two Word Tuesday.
