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.

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 - November

I read five books last month bringing my year to date total to 61, well past the 50 I estimated at the beginning of the year. And I've yet to get through December.

The month started out with The Nix, the debut novel by Nathan Hill which has been receiving a lot off positive reviews. In it Hill flips back and fourth from the 1968 Chicago protests and 2011 in a desperate search for the truth behind why his mother abandoned him at an early age. In between Hill takes on politics, the media and addiction as well as other aspects of society. It's a well-spun tale and I quite enjoyed reading it.

Next up was the auto-biographical I Am Brian Wilson of Beach Boys fame. This was somewhat of a scattered affair but an interesting read nonetheless. Wilson - or his ghostwriter - however is no Hemingway.

Then it was on to one of my favourite authors, Ian Rankin and his latest tale of now retired Inspector John Rebus, Rather Be The Devil. I never tire of these stories and this is the 21st in …

Traveling Along Singing A Song

Pete and Paulie were strolling along one day. The sun was bright, the air was cool, the birds chirped crazily in the trees and the squirrels  munched merrily on their nuts. Well not their nuts exactly. Nuts they found on the ground and in the gardens in the park.

Paulie felt so good he began to whistle. It wasn't any tune in particular, just one of those annoyingly tuneless whistles that wandered all over the place. Pete looked at Paulie and he squiggled up his nose and he said "What the hell is that?" Paulie replied "Oh nothing in particular. I'm just happy." "But you're not even whistling a tune" said Pete. Paulie replied "If you're so wise I'd like to see you do better, Pete."

Pete went silent for a moment and seemed to mumble to himself for a moment or two. Then he cleared his throat with a little cough, he opened his mouth and he began to sing.
