Mob hits

Okay, how cool would it be to witness a scene like this? It’s better than that scene from “The Godfather” where James Caan thrashes, for roughly ten minutes, the wretch who beat up his sister. It’s up there with the scene from “Goodfellas,” where Ray Liotta uses the butt of his gun to turn a preppy’s face into hamburg. In terms of sheer commitment to the cause, it rivals Joe Pesci’s death by baseball bat at the end of “Casino.”

Yesterday a cab driver in NYC hit an 8-year-old kid on a bike. Then the cabbie crashed into a wall, and a mob pulled him out of the car and beat him up. When the cab driver explained that he lost control of the car after his fare hit him in the head with a metal bar to rob him, the mob beat up the passenger and tightened a belt around his neck.

Tell me that 8-year-old kid isn’t going to be super impressed with his new friends. I mean, try stealing that boy’s lunch money from now on.

    I’m sure glad I don’t live in New York city.. or any city for that matter. Small town USA is suburban enough for me.

    Kiss my ring, Vinny.

    Was that a scene in a movie? Or a news story? THe news doesn’t usually get the whole story in the same day like that.

  4. brenda said,

    …and how did the cab driver get the words out & heard while he was being beat up? Sometimes when people make assumptions it’s really hard to explain to them their mistake, especially when adrenaline & fists are flying.

    LaFlamme, if you wake up with a bloody horse head next to you in your bed, I know nothing about it, honest. But maybe, just maybe you should’ve paid up when you had the chance. *helicopters buzzing overhead, flushing coke down the toilet, hosing down the wood chipper*

    If my baby sitter insists on going back for her lucky hat, she’s gonna sleep with the fishes.

    **SNIFF** I just finished watching Field of Dreams for like the 10 millionth time.

  8. LaFlamme said,

    Hey, that was listed high on the “tear jerker movies” blog about a year ago. My brother bawls at the end of that one every time. “Dad? You wanna have a catch?”

  9. K2 said,

    ‘Kramer vs. Kramer’ got me in the lacrimal glands, for sure.

  10. LaFlamme said,

    The Champ.

  11. K2 said,

    By the way, I was called an ‘admitted pedephile (sic)’ in Our View yesterday. I didn’t complain to Eric, and the post is still there. But don’t make any comments in the SJ about a woman’s rack, or it will get deleted by the Powers That Be.

  12. K2 said,

    Weren’t you in the sequel, ‘The Chump’?

  13. LaFlamme said,

    Wait, how does making an earnest observation about a grown woman’s breasts make you a pedophile?

  14. AO said,

    I would think it would make you an avid observer of the female anatomy. Either that or he’s just a tit man.

  15. Mainetarr said,

    What Dreams May Come–that movie makes both of us cry. What a weird, yet good movie.

  16. LaFlamme said,

    That Robin Williams flick? With the weird afterlife?

  17. AO said,

    I’ve never seen that movie. Something about Robin Williams in a serious, depressing role. Eh, I had to pass on that one. BUT, speaking of movies that make you “weep”, I watched the other night…again..Lonesome Dove. Boy, I’ll tell ya, when Ol’ Gus dies…well, I just have to have a box of tissues right next to me. Where the hell is Tito when I need him?

  18. LaFlamme said,

    Williams was great in “Goodwill Hunting,” though.

  19. AO said,

    Yes, he was. I’m old, wasn’t he also in Dead Poets Society?

  20. LaFlamme said,

    Wow. Yes, he was. He played an irrepresible and zany alien from another planet who taught a group of students about individuality while living with the drab, but protective Pam Dauber.

  21. AO said,

    Well, Shuzbutt! I thought so.

  22. K2 said,

    Yeah, and Williams kicked ass in that too. Although, he has kinda been in a — dare I say it — slump lately. Still, he’s my favorite stand up ever, and when he gets the right role, he’s wonderful.

    I have no idea where the pedophile accusation from ‘Ombagog’ came from. Wasn’t too pleased with it, either. Although I did insinuate that ‘Cedric’ may suffer from latent homosexuality, due to his Fruedian overusage of exclamation points. (They are rather phallic.) But to some, being gay is probably just as bad as being a child molester. Somehow I don’t see that ‘logic.’ Cedric also had a ‘Hail Hitler’ in one of his posts regarding nanny government. Basically, he’s Dan reincarnated as a right-wing nut. And I refuse to hit the ‘suggest removal’ link because I hope that most folks can see what’s right and what’s wrong.

    Moxie Fest this weekend here in Lisbon Town, USA. Fireworks tomorrow night. Come one, come all.

  23. K2 said,

    Nanoo fucking nanoo.

  24. AO said,

    K2, we know you’re not a pedephile. A, doobie smoking, beer guzzling kind of guy but, a pedephile..NO. And, I’m not opposed to beer guzzling OR..doobie-doobie-dos. Light it up!

  25. Nadine said,

    The Champ — hands down! I sobbed at little Ricky crying sooo hard, I swear they made him think that the dude really died to make him cry like that!

    That and Dancer in the Dark starring Bjork — wanna cry? Watch THAT movie! Holy Shite! I cried for days!

  26. Nadine said,

    Ok, time for Big Brother — I’m a reality tv junkie! Later!

  27. AO said,

    Bjork? Is she the chick that showed up to an award show wearing a swan? If it’s her, thats all I remember of her. What a get-up!

  28. Mainetarr said,

    Yeah, she’s freaky, that Bjork. Have i said lately that i hate Madonna? Who do you guys really hate that is a “star”? I hate everyone so it’s fuggin funny to get me going. Name the worst of the worst. I hate Lance Armstrong too. Bicycling Bastard.

  29. AO said,

    Brittney Spears. I hate her. I just don’t get her. I just want to know WTF?

  30. K2 said,

    I must admit, MT, I don’t like Lance either. Just a dick. Sheryl’s way to sexy and cool for him.

    Let’s see: First and foremost, I hate Jon Lovitz, that humorless ass.

    I also intensely dislike Shirley McLain. The bitch wanted a sacred Sante Fe all to herself. Fuck the natives. Whore. Up there with Jane Fonda.

    Who else? Howard Stern. Don’t hate ’em. But he is so damn insecure and obsessive compulsive, I don’t know how my wife tolerates him.

    Rush Limbaugh. Total fucking hypocrite, that pill poppin’ fuck.

    Joe Theisman. Can you believe this asshole is going to do MNF with Al Michaels on ESPN this fall? I wish he had a compound fracture of the skull back when LT snapped his leg like a twig. Hose his brains right off the turf and play ball.

    Tom Cruise, Mel Gibson, well, that’s all I hate as of right now, without any prep work. I’ll get back to you when bitterness strikes.

  31. K2 said,

    Sante Fe mountain. She’s psychic: she knew.

  32. K2 said,

    Alec fucking Baldwin, that psycho bastard.

    And Shaq. If he weren’t 7′ 2″ and 275 pounds, or whatever the hell he is, he wouldn’t even be in the JCC league. Just watch the man try to make a foul shot. Hate ‘im.

  33. Nadine said,

    Yes, Bjork is quirky, but her music (and voice!) is incredible. She is Icelandic and they are known to be quite ahead of the “stuffy” Americans! Hehe!

    I don’t like:

    Kate Bush (her voice makes me cringe)

    William Shatner (Ever hear HIM sing? YUK!)

    Toni Braxton (see Kate Bush)

    Marilyn Manson (screwed NIN over big time)

    Courtney Love (sorry mark, but she’s a bitch!)

    Martha Stewart (too self-righteous)

    Katie Couric (no-one is THAT happy all the time!)

    Nicole Kidman (don’t know why, just hate her acting — with the exception of “To Die for” — maybe cuz she dies in the end — yayyy!)

    Big Bird (he is such a freakin’ whiner on Sesame Street!)

    Paris Hilton (Only cuz I can’t be her, and cuz she has no idea how the other 3/4 of us live — “Simple Life” or not!)

    And I absolutely cannot stand Tom Cruise anymore!! (WTF is up with him??)

    I’m SURE there are MANY others, but I have strained my brain long enough, haha. Long live Madonna!!

  34. LaFlamme said,

    Wow! A hate fest. Excellent. I’ll throw Norm McDonald and Dennis Miller into the malginant mix.

  35. AO said,

    K2, Mel Gibson? WTF? I love Mel.

  36. AO said,

    Gotta agreee with Nadine on the Martha Stewart thing. I don’t even have the time to watch her show (not that I’d want to ) but, then to find the time to do all the stupid things she puts out there! Ha. Screw that! And, screw Martha Stewart. She has to be the worst.

  37. LaFlamme said,

    Ahhh, crap. What’s the name of that chicky, the one whose boob was exposed right after surgery. I think she was in American Pie but really doesn’t do much else. Kind of a starlet. Begins with T, I suspect. Help me out there. Tara Reid? Okay, nevermind.

  38. Nadine said,

    bjork in her lovely swan-ness (fyi, she had her daughter one week after I had my son — well, was cool to me anyway, esp since she was born on my actual due date!):

  39. LaFlamme said,

    Holy crap, it IS a swan. There’s gotta be a joke there.

  40. Nadine said,

    OMG — “What Dreams May come” !!! — awesome movie!

  41. Nadine said,

    Well Mark, it was kinda a joke — she won the Palme d’or at the Golden Globes as best actress for “Dancer in the Dark” — AND, she laid a golden egg on the runway! Hahah! Awesome movie though!

  42. brenda said,

    well, now I’m envious that I didn’t design that swan dress! Or something like that! You should have seen the naughty devil costume I designed a few decades ago when I was young & hot. It was better than that swan dress, really. I could’ve made a sexier swan dress if I tried.
    Remember that myth about the God who disguised himself as a swan and had sex with some woman? There’s a famous painting of it in France. Or Italy. I think it’s in France though. I left my college books in CA, so I can’t check.
    What? what did you learn in college?
    I can’t stand donald trump. Or that “judge” on the American Idol shows that is so rude & arrogant-critical, that gets his ass-kissed by everybody? Why does everybody like such people? Why don’t I remember his name? Because I don’t watch the shows that he’s on.
    I don’t even need to mention my aversion to Rush Limbaugh & Trent Lott…..etc….

    Tara Reid? Wasn’t she on Rockstar INXS last year & got voted out early? I loved her!
    I noticed the new Rockstar reality contest show is avoiding the whole racism fiasco of last year by just having white contestants. You didn’t see the racism on the tv show, it was the bloggers on the rockstar.msn blogsite and they were also the voters. I think there were trolls who were stirring things up all the time. I was new to blogging back then and it got me addicted and then sorta depressed, so I had to stop. That’s when I first came to Street talk and as obnoxious as you guys were, it was a relief by comparison! I made up a lot of goofy names & even made fun of my own self. But is was not in mean ways. So street talk was my recovery-blog-addict-program!
    ;-p~~~~

  43. Martha said,

    I agree with MT and AO on the Martha Stewart thing.. lying, convict loser.. its a shame I have to respond to the same name she does. CANNOT stand that woman.

  44. K2 said,

    AO, Mel Gibson is a Christian fundamentalist hate monger, just like his father, who denied the holocaust ever happened. Too bad too, ’cause I used to like Mel.

  45. Mainetarr said,

    Wow, I am impressed. You guys hate everyone like I do. Too fuggin funny. Others I hate, Brad Pitt, Tom Cruise (FYI-there is no baby Suri-it was all a promo stunt for MI3), Star Jones, ROsie O’Donnel-that big mouth beeotch, Alec Baldwin is a douchebag, Will Farrell, Jack Black-Nacho Good Actor, that movie SUCKED, Rush Limbaugh is another cocky bastard I can’t stand, editors (that one’s for you Mark), Angelina Jolie is a love hate thing-homewrecking beeotch, but seems to be good mother (I am still Team Anniston), Paris SlutTrash Hilton and her retarded sister Nikki, Mischa Aneroxic Barton, oh man, the list just goes on and on and on. Martha Stewart got what she deserved, just like Kenneth Lay, that rat bastard. Oh, I hate Prince Horseface Charles, too.

    Who do I love? You guys, of course.

  46. Nadine said,

    Awww, MT!! Even though you bashed some of those I DO like, you’re still loved in my book! ūüôā

    OH! 8 years of Catholic school taught me not to use the word “hate” which is why I named the people “I don’t like”…BUT…I abso-f’ing-lutely HATE John Madden!!! He is the dumbest dumbass I’ve ever seen/heard. Nothing like stating the obvious EVERY play (seriously, he once said “now, now, if they take that into the end zone, they’ll have themselves a touchdown” — Well, duh!!), and someone take that damned video marker away from him!
