SPECIAL BREAKING NEWS EDITION...
Anyway, while we in no way condone Mass Murder or specifically what happened in Colorado this week, we do - as always - take special note of the important fashion trends and what it may mean to you the struggling yet sporty 30-ish Hollywood wannabee trying to make your way in an 18-year-old-centric entertainment industry.
As you know by now, the Colorado shooters were members of the so-called Trenchcoat Mafia, who - purportedly - sported long black trenchcoats no matter what the season! Yes, both before and after Memorial Day!
Now we're not sure what statement they were making with such daring non-comformist outerwear, but it's a statement we'll not soon forget.
Therefore, and with that in mind, we've decided to start our own radical group of outsiders We will be called the Wool Sportcoat Bandits We will be against anybody who goes to step or tai-bo classess men who wear tee-shirts that are too tight (this hatred does not apply to women) and/or anyone who watches Party of Five with any regularity We realize that it's a somewhat random hatred but none the less, we are in a society defined by hatred, so we must have our own
We, the fearsome Wool Sportcoat Bandits, may or may not decide to go on a gun-toting rampage but either way, we'll look good and won't have to worry about being one-upped by any teenaged, addle-brained, punk, anarchic, non-jock, non-hat-wearing, Leo DiCaprio in Basketball Diaries wanna-bees stealing our holy thunder and our God-given right to play 18 to 25 year olds in film and television way into our 30's the way it used to be before everybody figured out they could use actual 18 to 25 year olds to play these parts
As a matter of fact, let's hate those people as well. Those 18 to 25 year olds who are taking our parts and the Casting Directors and Producers that allow them to do so
They will quake with fear And they will think twice next year before filling all the pilots with teenaged pip-squeaks who've never had any formal acting training other than practicing how to not look stoned when they come home Friday Nights and have to walk past their parents bedrooms
That is, if their parents are even at home, what with all the running back and forth to the Guns & Ammo store they have to do in order to keep a well-stocked supply of AK-47's and sawed-off shotguns around the house so that they'll be able to keep up with the never-ending demands of yet another crucial Jackass Hunting season
Not that I'd ever blame the parents for keeping guns in the house and available for their kids to steal the next time they get turned down for the Junior Varsity Asshole Team No A kid can get a gun anywhere in this country because our sacred 2nd Amendment guarantees the right to bear arms so that we may be vigilant in assuring our government doesn't over-throw it's own citizens any day now in it's obvious quest for a One World Government
Those sawed-off shotguns and Saturday Night Specials will be especially useful in protecting against a military onslaught of Armored Tanks and Nuclear Weaponry...
We've got nothing to fear as long as we keep granddad's pearl handled pistol loaded-up and ready for action in the bedside nightstand
But I digress
Just remember to wear your Wool Sportcoat proudly so you'll be ready and able to shmooze - but this time - with the chutzpah of an embittered, yet possibly-gun-toting member of a radical hate group! We must hate and hate and hate. And I don't mean just hate yourself - no, that's too easy in this town! Hate everybody! Hate everybody and look good and feel good doing it!
And that's this week's THIS WEEK IN CRIME
