For four seasons my Saturday nights have been dominated by one program - Hell on Wheels. Two seasons ago they started the episode with our hero, Cullen Bohannon, making his way over the top of snow covered peak just so he could find a route to take his railway because Bohannon is a railway man and he always will be. He will die before he allows himself to fail.
He's a hero and the best man for any job. Not just a gunfighter but a man smart enough to know when NOT to use a gun. He's the one everyone looks to for strength. He's pulled off more heroics and saved more people to make him Governor if he could only get the votes of everyone he has come into contact with. He's a great movie cowboy and someone to admire. That is a MAN. Where is Anson Mount's Emmy Award??
The only thing that bothers me about this show is that I never got the chance to share it with my father because he would have loved this 'duster'.
Even Bohannon's enemies are formidable.
The SWEDE is the scariest guy I have seen on TV.
There is a reckoning coming before the end.
**Hell on Wheels is an American Western TV show about the construction of the First Transcontinental Railroad across the United States. The series follows the Union Pacific Railroad and its surveyors, laborers, prostitutes, engineers… who lived and died in the mobile encampment called “Hell on Wheels” that followed the railhead west across the Great Plains. Specially, the show focuses on Cullen Bohannon (actor Anson Mount), a former Confederate soldier.
I do admit my bias as you all know that this show is filmed about 100 miles from where I live. This is my land and country, bitches. This is how we conquered the West at one time.
There is nothing cooler than waking up and finding a post that a good buddy did about ME and all the various Zatanna posts I have done. He gathered them all in one place. It was great to just look at my work collected like that. Who knew I could have a positive effect on someone? Thanks Timothy for paying it forward. Follow the link below to check out what he wrote about me and to enjoy some of his blog posts as well. Starting this blog was one of the best things I ever did with my time because of all the great people I have met.
The NHL’s Nashville Predators might have creamed the Toronto Maple Leafs on the ice Tuesday night, but ahead of the game, there was a technical difficulty for the U.S. side. The microphone cut out while a woman was singing “The Star Spangled Banner.”
Instead of taking a moment to fix the sound system, the fans in the Canadian arena barely missed a beat at filling in the rest of the U.S. national anthem.
I forever stand vigilant to protect this planet from the myriad of forces that are always against us. Be it the octopus, zombies, aliens or the robots my team of human agents, and our feline allies, circle the globe in a never ending struggle for human freedom.
I learn all I can on every subject that interests me. I especially enjoy ancient history because in the past there are valuable lessons to be found. Also, if I ever get my time machine to work properly, it would be good to know a bit about possible destinations and what to expect when I get there.
I greatly appreciate beautiful design. Be it manufactured or found naturally I am fascinated by the process of invention. I am attracted to the unique, the strange, the haunted. I like to share what I find on this blog.
And not let us forget the 'Cephalopod Menace' who, if allowed to, would wrap their tentacles around all that is good and pure in this life and crush it until it remained no more. They are creatures of pure spite. Hate is all they know. Death is all they do. They are our most ruthless and determined enemy.
So we fight. Selena has the celebrity contacts, the cat is ruthless and without pity, Roosevelt's ghost has the experience and I do the wetwork.
Fighting for the future of the planet doesn't have to be a chore, however. We can take the time to appreciate all that is cool in this world even as we cut the octopus into bite sized chunks.
This is the reason there has always been and must forever be, a Cave of Cool. Be sure to wipe your feet before you enter.
