Hey! Happy Tuesday!
I typed up a mov-ay review for The Other Guys this morning— But I took it down because what I thought was funny this morning on retrothought was just annoying and stupido. I’ll try to try again later or do better next time. Sorry. Click here to read other reviews!
The good news is I’m going to a screening of The Tillman Story tonight and afterwards there’s gonna be a Q&A moderated by Michael Moore. Should be interesting and I’ll type it up…
And here’s a Monday Annoyance if you wanna read that instead…

Hi Todd. I have a Monday Annoyance that happened to me a couple of
I was heading off to work in the morning in my car. When I reached the
main intersection, I heard a rumble below my seat. My first thought
was, “That’s strange.” I put my foot on the gas when the traffic light
turned green. Nothing happened. The fuck!!? The truck driver behind
me was honking all crazy like. I was thinking to myself, “Yes. That’s
right buddy, I intentionally stopped just to piss you off.”
It turns out that my engine stalled. My car was due for an oil change,
and my first initial thought was that was the problem. Luckily a
mailman spotted me in my frustrated state and helped me push my vehicle
to the side of the road. I pulled out my cell and called my dad and
explained to him what happened. The ‘need oil’ indicator lit up
followed by the other indicator on the dash. Within five minutes my dad
showed up and looked the problem. My oil levels were fine. It turns
out I didn’t bring in the chock and that was the cause of the stall.
The weekend before the Monday rained a lot, and Monday was hot and
humid. So for now on before I drive, I have to push the gas pedal all
the way down to bring in the chock. My car has automatic transmission.
Weirdest thing too, because this is the first time it has happened to me
in this car.
