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.

Mad wild skills there with Theme Thursday, Dufus!

Skip Simpson said…
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 King said…

Alan Burnett said…
A fine selection of pictures. Happy TT
nonamedufus said…
e: HTTTYT (Happy Theme Thursday to you, too)

Megan: No I haven't. I may have seen the TV movie. I'll put it on my "to read" list. Sounds interesting.

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.

Baino said…
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 - October

Well, folks, I read seven (count 'em) seven books in October. One I didn't finish but even at that I hit the magic number 50 I estimated for myself by the end of the year. The six books I successfully waded through were, firstly, What Happened, Hillary Clinton's book on her bid for the Presidency. I''m a bit of a political junkie so I get off on this stuff but still it kinda struck me as one long whine over losing.
Next up was the excellent Canyon of Dreams: The Magic and Music of Laurel Canyon. Laurel Canyon was the fabled area outside of Los Angeles where many musicians and artists lived. Known as a 60s enclave, the book takes a look at just who lived there over the last 80 years. A fascinating read.
Next up was Lightfoot, a biography of Canadian folk singer Gordon Lightfoot. He may have been responsible for some iconic folk songs but he was also quite the womanizer and boozer. Enough said.
Then I read Dan Brown's new tome Origin, the fifth in the Robert Lan…

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…
