So, What If You Don’t Enjoy Swimming???

DONT. GO. SWIMMING.

Period.

I’m A Decent Swimmer, I Just Sincerely HATE Swimming.

Always Have.

I Went Because Other People Always MADE ME GO.

But, Isn’t That How It Generally Works In Regard To A Lot Of Life?

We Didn’t Really Wanna Do It, But We Didn’t Really Have A Choice In The Matter?

Yeah.

That’s How That Works.

Well, I Went Swimming Yesterday Afternoon.

Why?

Because.

UNCLE BRAD

Is

ON DUTY

🙂

I Love Being “ON DUTY“…

…And That’s A Big FO SHO On That, My Peeps!

I Can’t Deny It, So I Won’t Even Attempt It.

So, When The Nephew Says… “Brad, You Said You’d Go!”

Brad’s Response Is… “Sure Thing, Dude. I Did. Let Me Get My Towel.”

If My Response Were Anything Else, Honestly, There Would Be Hell To Pay.

Perhaps, I Mean That Figuratively AND Literally?!

Yep.

I Think I Do.

But, Yeah, I Went Swimming.

And I Swam.

And, Today, I’m Sore, Exhausted, SunBurnt, And Have An Awful Headache.

BUT

I Did Have Fun

I Did Make My Nephew Happy

And I Did Agree To Go Swimming With Him Again Very Soon, As That’s The Only Way I Could Convince Him To Get Out Of The Freakin’ Pool!

Arrrgh!!!

YES, I Still HATE Swimming.

But, YES, I’ll Be Going Back, Next Time.

What Choice Did/Do/Will I Honestly Have???

Correct.

None. At. All.

And THAT Is FINE With ME.

The Nephew AND The Frog😀     😉     😀

So... Are YOU Jivin Me -questionmark-

(Totally NOT) Random Movie Mention (Special Edition): “THE 7TH VOYAGE OF SINBAD” (1958)

I’ve Been A Fan Of The Sinbad Films All Of My Life…

…But…

THE 7TH VOYAGE OF SINBAD

…Has Been My Absolute FAVE-FAVE Of The Entire Sinbad Saga.

Released In 1958…

THE 7TH VOYAGE OF SINBAD

…Also Stars My Favorite Actor To Portray The Character Of Sinbad…

KERWIN MATHEWS

KERWIN MATHEWS

…Though Mr. Mathews Is NOT The Major Selling Point For The Film.

No, That Honor Belongs To The Special-Visual-Effects WIZARDRY Of…

RAY HARRYHAUSEN

!!!

He’s The Man Responsible For The Visuals Of Other Such Classics As…

MIGHTY JOE YOUNG” (1949)

THE BEAST FROM 20,000 FATHOMS” (1953)

JASON AND THE ARGONAUTS” (1963)

…And Of Course…

THE CLASH OF THE TITANS” (1981)

!!!

You Should Trust Me On This One, My Peeps, When I Say…

THE 7TH VOYAGE OF SINBAD

…Is So So SO MUCH FUN!

I Recommend It To ANYONE Who’s A Fan Of Classic Monster Movies…

…Or Is A Fan Of AMAZINGLY WONDERFUL Special-Effects.

It Was Re-Released On DVD A Couple Years Ago…

…And The Film Transfer Is Absolutely GORGEOUS!

And If You’re Still Unsure About It…

…Even TIME MAGAZINE Says…

“ONE OF THE BEST MONSTER PICTURES EVER MADE.”

That Ain’t No Jive, My Peeps.

It Really Is A Classic Of The Genera.

Like I Said…

…You Should Trust Me On This One.

I Just Finished Watching It Right This Minute.

I’m On Full-Time Uncle Duty, At Present.

So, I’m Constantly Having To Find Ways To TRY And Entertain My Nephew.

Sooo, I Showed Him This One.

I Think He Really Enjoyed It.

Score One For Uncle Brad!!!

“It Is A Black-Art, And I, HARU, Am The Blackest Of The Black. Or, Rather, The Great White Black-Art…Blackest…Master.” –HARU (Chris Farley in “BEVERLY HILLS NINJA” (1997))

The Nephew Wanted To Stay Up Late, So I Decided We Should Watch A Movie.

Since It Was My Idea, It Also Became My Responsibility To Select The Flick We’d Be Kickin’-Back With.

I Wanted Something That Would Make Him Laugh.

I Also Wanted Something That Was Appropriate For Staying-Up-Late And Actually Staying Awake.

My Decision Was More Like Instinct Than A Thought-Out-Reaction.

I Immediately Said

Holy Shit, I Know Where That Old Copy Of Beverly Hills Ninja Is!!! SWISH!!!”

And It Was Done.

Here It Is.

Beverly Hills Ninja (1997)

(((HAHAHA!!!)))

I Know, Right.

PERFECT!!!

Uncle Brad Shoots

Uncle Brad Hits Paydirt!!!

Huh!!?!

Well

Whatever You Wanna Call It.

It Went Over Great.

And Now, He’s In Bed Sleeping Away.

And I’m Awake.

Writing This.

For You.

Because I Care, And So Should You.

😉

(((teehehehe)))

😀          😀

Sleep Sweet, My Peeps.

I’m Going To Be Trying To Very Soon, I Promise.

Howdy Y’all…

…I’m Back From My Personal Mini-Vacation.

I Hadn’t Really Been Feeling It, In Regard To The Ole Blog.

So, I Decided To Take A Couple Days To Think It All Over.

And Now, Today, I’m Baaack!

I’ve Spent The Past Couple Days With My Nephew.

He’s In Town For A Visit, So I’ve Been Happily Enjoying Being Back In “Uncle Brad” Mode.

We’ve Already Had Plenty Of Fun.

We’ve Watched Some Quality Flicks.

We’ve Played Plenty Of Lego.

We’ve Played The Nintendo 3DS.

We’ve Played Outside In The Snow.

Tomorrow Is His Birthday.

I Can’t Believe He’ll Be Entering Into The Double-Digit Ages.

It Doesn’t Seem Possible That He’s Already Been Around For 10 Years!

Good God, It Makes Me Feel Ancient.

That’s A BIG Fo SHO.

ANYWAY…

…I’m Back Now To Piddle About With Y’all.

I’ve Got A Couple Projects I’ve Been Tinkering With So, Please, Stay Tuned.

Same Brad Time.

Same Brad Channel.

😉

HAPPY NEW YEARS EVE, My Peeps!!!

Hope It’s A Good One!!!

So... Are YOU Jivin Me -questionmark-
