Ultimate Obscure Observation Repost

This morning I got an email from Mr. Stuart Cornfeld and it seems the producer and actor came across this older blog from August 20, 2011 where I made an ultimate obscure observation! His note really made my day and I was glad for the note. Enjoy it once again.

The Ultimate Obscure Observation
 It is only through my preternatural powers of observation that I caught something last night while watching the film "Old School" for maybe the 100th time. Are you ready for this?

At the beginning of the film, Luke Wilson's character gets into a cab. Here is the scene:

Ok, I was like "I KNOW THAT GUY!!!". Here is a still picture:
It took me a minute, but I had it!

This is the same actor that played the Pirate Restaurant boss in "Fast Times at Ridgemont High":

The actor is Stuart Cornfeld.

Yes, this is probably a sign I have some issues, but I am not hurting anyone right?

If you have seen the new film "Hall Pass" then the older baseball coach from the film is the same guy that was the UPS delivery man in "Legally Blonde"! I notice everything. Bend and snap that!

Have a good night.

That is pretty amazing getting an email from him, he must have been Googling himself and found your website?

Who doesn't Google themselves? I've Googled myself plenty of times. Hell, I'm Googling myself right this very minute!

... Uh, what are we talking about again?

Well, it's been an interesting weekend.

Thursday night we sat down to eat dinner and watch Person of Interest. This is my mother's new favorite show. It stars Jim Caveizel. Recognize him? (He played Jesus in the Passion.)

All of the sudden, from out of nowhere--Ka-Boom!--a monster thunderstorm hit and caused a city-wide blackout. We were out of power for several hours, which is inconvenient, but 20 miles over McAllen was struck by a ferocious hail storm--golf ball and baseball sized--that caused massive poperty damage. It tore the roof off of the police station. And the beautiful Re-Max office builing--a marvel of modern architecture, multiple stories with wall to wall glass siding--was practically destroyed.

So I was thinking about this as I was driving around to inspect our listings and assess damages. I'm driving through this neighborhood, and everywhere I looked all I could see was battered cars, torn up roofs, broken windowns, holes in the sides of houses, uprooted trees. Okay, this is going to be bad.

But one block over, where the listing was, it was sunshine and rainbows, like nothing happened.

That's Texas weather for you. It could be bright and sunny on one side of the street, and dark and stormy on the other. I've seen it.

Amazingly, none of our listings suffered any damage. But some of the streets I drove down were obliterated.

Anyway, to get back to the topic at hand, you would be surprised how many actors who got their start on Law & Order later appeared on other shows. Some even got their own series.

It's a troupe, an acting company. If you want to work as an actor, you have to join a troupe. That's what gets you exposure and access to roles. This is why you see the same actors appearing in multiple shows and movies. They belong to a troupe.

Jennifer Hillier said...

Cool that he emailed you!

I don't Google myself anymore. That's what Google Alerts are for. Ha! But seriously, I don't. Because it's weird when I see my face in weird places.

GawainsGhost said...

I've never Googled myself in my life. Maybe I'm afraid of what I might find.

Anyway, dude, twelve tornadoes hit North Texas yesterday afternoon. Twelve! Two hit Dallas and the rest struck in the surrounding area.

DFW, an airport which is larger than the city of Manhattan, had to be shut down. Hundreds of flights were cancelled, after baseball-sized hail damaged dozens of planes.

This is what I'm talking about. A hail storm can cause a lot of damage. But not as much as a tornado though.

I saw the video on the news this morning of this one tornado that went over a truck yard. It was flinging around semi-trailers, literally picking them up and throwing them hundreds of feet in the air, like they were Tonka toys. Now that's scary.

We don't get extreme weather like that down here, 900 miles south. We hardly ever get tornadoes, only when there's like this really powerful hurricane in the Gulf. Then tornadoes will form on the periphery, but that only affects the coastal region. Once the storm moves inland and slows down, the twisters dissipate.

We get our fair share of violent thunderstorms, with occasional flooding, though. But that's about it. Oh, and a fierce hail storm every once in a while.

The Dallas-Fort Worth-Arlington area has the fourth largest population density in the country. And it's right down Tornado Alley.

Amazingly, no one was killed and only a few suffered minor injuries. The property damage, however, was severe. Many homes were completely destroyed.

What to make of this wild weather? Well, you remember that tsunami that hit Japan a while back? The undersea earthquake that caused that tidal wave was so powerful that it actually altered the axis of the Earth.

That affected ocean currents. Wind currents follow ocean currents. So these storm patterns we're now seeing are the natural result. It's that simple.

Oh, and I notice the stock market crashed today. Small wonder that. It was overbought and oversold to begin with. A bunch of corporate insiders took the money and ran. Like that surprises anyone.

Anyway, GYC, I hope that new gym is working out for you. I trust you're getting back in shape. But you might want to invest in some survival gear, what with all this wild weather.

And I'd keep an eye on your stock positions, if I were you. It is getting a little crazy out there.

GawainsGhost said...

Check this out.

We're not in Kansas anymore.

And then there's this.

That's not good. A foreclosure tsunami? I'd call it cleaning out inventory, like a tornado tossing trucks around.

One would think that would be good for me, since I deal mainly with repossessed homes, but really it's not.

It costs a lot of money and takes a lot of time and work to get a house ready for sale. Some of these homes have been vacant or neglected for months, even years. Many are in disrepair, or have been stripped and gutted.

So, I have to spend all this time and money, do all this work to get some repo on the market. Who is going to buy it? In this economy, not very many people can even qualify for a loan. And, more importantly, when will I get paid? Probably not for six months to a year, maybe never. These companies routinely move repos from one realtor to another when they don't get any offers.

Yeah, it's a difficult job and a tough life. But somebody's got to do it, might as well be me.

At least a tornado didn't suck my truck up and throw it around. That would have been a real problem.

Oh, and did I mention that it's an election year? I hate to get all political on you, GYC, but I'm telling you this election is going to get real ugly real quick. And that does not bode well for markets.

If there is anything that stalls a market, it's uncertainty. Well, and corruption, cronyism, incompetence, and the like.

Brace yourself. We are entering into the eye of the storm.

Damn, that is one heck of a memory there!

EconomicDisconnect said...

Glad you made out ok, what a mess down there.

GawainsGhost said...

Well, those tornadoes were about 900 miles north of here. We had a thunderstorm, a temporary power outage, and some fierce hail in parts of the county, but nothing to cry about.

None of the houses we have listed were damaged, so it's a wash. It could have been worse, a lot worse.

All I'm saying is brace yourself. This government, this election, this weather, you just don't know.

Uncertainty is what rattles markets. And uncertainty is certainly what's to come. Brace yourself. Protect your money. And don't invest in anything, unless you're sure of a good return.

These days, though, there's not much to be sure about. I'm not saying, I'm just saying.

When tornadoes are tossing trucks around, the stock market is tanking, foreclosures are all the rage, this is when you invest your money wisely. Or go broke.

Keep your head about you. That's what I'm talking about.

I was curious if you ever considered changing the structure of your website?

Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two images.
Maybe you could space it out better?
