Starman -- You don't date one of my ex-girlfriends do you? Her recent bf called himself Starman. jk of course, but if you were dating her, you can have her
And, ftr, the only things that I have named are my cats and my bikes, but everybody names their pets.
I haven't named my darts, my guitar (as Willie did "Trigger"), or my putter (as Crenshaw did "Little Ben").
I still don't understand why some of you think naming things is weird since people have been doing it for ages.
Hrunting was a magical sword given to Beowulf by Unferth in the ancient Old English epic of the same name. Beowulf used it in battle against Grendel's Mother.
Beowulf is described receiving the sword in lines 1455-1458:
"And another item lent by Unferth
at that moment of need was of no small importance:
the brehon handed him a hilted weapon,
a rare and ancient sword named Hrunting.
The iron blade with its ill-boding patterns
had been tempered in blood. It had never failed
the hand of anyone who hefted it in battle,
anyone who had fought and faced the worst
in the gap of danger. This was not the first time
it had been called to perform heroic feats.
(I'm sure I could come up with dozens of examples of people naming things but the 3 above should suffice considering my current username, that I play golf, and I try to play guitar.)
Here's a quote (you can Google it if you want to know where it's at):
Naming something is a powerful experience, traditionally it gives you power over it and confirms your dominance in the relationship. Recognizing a name and using it lets you understand it and know some of its secrets. Like a magic word that establishes familiarity between you and the person, animal or object, it proves that you know what they are about and also know them apart from yourself.
The Starman is not the issue.Originally Posted by Grendel
My comment about Starman was a joke. Apparently you didn't get it.

Pure $#@!ing genius. Now I know I'm not the only one with too much free $#@!ing time on my hands

can you loan me matt so I can hit him with sticks?
If I'm hitting balls off of matt, then he has to be stationary; therefore matt won't be jumping around.so how do you get this matt fellow to stand still or does he jump around while you hit whiffle balls with various clubs off of him from your deck? How far away does matt stand from the deck?
I don't know why you needed to bring 'race' into the conversation (re: "colored").are these white whiffle balls or colored whiffle balls that you hit matt with?
My balls are white, yellow, and orange; but they're not blue.
ah, so matt lies there with a ball on him and then you hit it off of him, ah.
see, because of the stilted sentence structure what you used in your post, I thought that you hit matt with them balls hit off the deck and flying throught the air and striking him thusly, THWACK! which would be a difficult thing to do, expecally if he was jumping aroung and $#@!, what you are actually doing is much easier, and so you dissapoint me.
OK, I don't know how I missed this thread. but the video is now down. I sat through the shift happens $#@! to find out what everyone already knows -- there are $#@! piles of ppl in china and india and the interwebs are fast and technical. now i need to see the other video. hook a brotha up.
How the hell have I missed this thread? That was an awesome video and congrats to punt for his newfound internet stardom. Who is going to take credit for that? I can't believe you left out his ninja skills.
I'm not sure you can attempt to harass me for "stilted sentecnce structure" with the gem you recently posted.see, because of the stilted sentence structure what you used in your post, I thought that you hit matt with them balls hit off the deck and flying throught the air and striking him thusly, THWACK!
Also, having rewatched the thread, the video lacked reference to East Side basketball, baseball bats, and unlocked doors. Come on, work a little harder.
However, I do still think the video is funny and I don't mind the game on this playground.
I do wish that another poster's name wasn't mentioned in the video. If whoever created the video is going to make sport with me, I think you should leave other people out of it.
Or @ the very least, Rox's roofing crew.Originally Posted by tropheus
Who did this, cause I WILL buy a few drinks for the guy(s) who did this.
I lost it a few times, on the Macanudo line, the India line, and the "he can get us discounts speaking spanglish" lines. I had to pause so I could laugh and not miss anything.
where de $#@! I been at that I didn't see this until now? Oscar material.
vintage stuff, right there. it's always everyone else's fault for not getting Grendelhumor.My comment about Starman was a joke. Apparently you didn't get it.
i was honeymooning when that came out - but that is gold.
I still go back and watch it occasionally. I lose it every time.
"PO1D shot 9-under par"
absolutely $#@!ing awesome.
MAAAN, that is $#@!ing awesome.... CLASSIC!!!!
