• i’m trying to get that Jethro Bodine swag back, so I went on a diet, starting tonight. One (1) Porterhouse steak, one (1)jumbo baked potato with real butter, sour cream, cheese, and bacon bits, with a pound of brussel spouts, slathered, dunked, and dipped in endless butter, along with a half gallon of Blue Bell Rocky Road for a night cap. I see it, I eat it. The Jethro “C-FOOD DIET”.

    That’s my actual meal for tonight. It’s somewhat piggish, but I stand in open defiance to all Food Nazis. I’ll eat what I want to eat, when I want to eat it.

  • @KUSTEVE Taking a little break here before I dive into the Blue Bell…we sign anyone in the last 30 minutes?


    I heard we were after a new athletic trainer, one that will make the players fat so they can win in March

  • @BeddieKU23 we don’t want them to drop dead though!

  • @BeddieKU23 Plus, most importantly…I’m not a girl. LOLOLOLOLOL… Guys, drop down and give me 20 while I eat this Krispy Kreme…

  • @KUSTEVE didn’t u have heart problems?

  • @KUSTEVE pretty sure Ellie Mae could whip your butt

  • @KUSTEVE Your cardiologist’s pager just went off.

  • @KUSTEVE You must be my soul mate. I’ve given up any pretense of losing weight. I could eat tofu and water for two weeks and gain three pounds. Screw it all, bring on something that actually tastes good.

  • Of course I was being a bad, bad boy. I have been ordered not to eat like that, but every once in a while, you gotta let your hair down a bit.


    Damn, that meal inspired me to buy beef suet and lard to start frying my heavily marbled rib eyes half way done before finishing them on the white oak grill.

    Green beans blanched then fried with bacon and onions and a spoon of vermouth.

    Cream and pecorino Romano fredo on pasta stuffed with pancetta bits.

    Fresh sliced apricots with cream and sugar.

    A bottle of sangiovese aka Dago Red chianti in a milk glass!


    Rip Bravo on the flat screen.

  • @jaybate-1.0 Was that Rio Bravo? Watched it yesterday!

  • @mayjay

    Yes, it’s still awesome between Feathers and Chance!

  • @jaybate-1.0 I appreciated Ricky Nelson’s performance this time much more than I have in the past. Still cannot get over how the first dynamite blast was about 5 feet from where the stick Walter Brennan threw actually landed. Incidentally, can a gunshot ignite dynamite?

  • @jaybate-1.0 And Feathers was awesome just by her lone self!

  • @mayjay

    I had forgotten what a pioneer she was. She ran with the rat pack, then was in some of the first experimental westerns like Hawk’s intentionally plotless rio bravo and experimental crime stories like John Boorman’s point blank with Lee Marvin and Ronald Reagan (great great flick). Then she married Burt Bacharach and was likely the muse for many of his greatest songs, then spoke up about about children with autism two decades before it became a big issue. Their child tragically died of depression from the condition. Wanting to stay close and raise her autistic child, she jumped to TV and became the first woman to carry a 1 hour dramatic series and star as a cop–Police Woman. Then when she and Bacharach split when their adult child died, and she fell in with Johnny Carson. Rich Men loved her because she was rich and didn’t need their money and sexy and smart. I admire and respect her much more now than back then. Helluva human being.

    I agree with you about Rick Nelson. I was a huge fan of hills, when he was on Ozzie and Harriet and singing Travelin man. When I saw a real bravo as a boy, I was disappointed that my young hero, Ricky, was portrayed as this tiny little guy who was very deferential to John Wayne. I did not understand that how are the Hawks required him to play the role web way, so Wells to contribute to John Wayne’s grand presence. . Hawks, like John Ford, was a great director who always knew how to position the actors to make his store the best he could be. Like you, as I have gotten older, I have come to appreciate the job Ricky Nelson did in the movie. It was not good for his film career, but it was very good for the movie Walter Brennan made a long career out of making other people look better. The trouble was Ricky was already a star to me then and I could not let go of it. But now, he seems almost perfect in the role. Parks was a great genius. He could make any kind of movie. Watch Rio bravo and be amazed but the man who made the movie could also make gentlemen prefer blondes, Red river, bringing up baby, and wings. About World War I aviation. He was a flyer in World War I if I recall correctly. The French new wave directors were actually bigger fans of Howard Hawks than Hitchcock. Hawks deemphasis of plot and emphasis of nonlinerity and painterly composition and color was genius and shows up in Truffaut, Godard, etc. Rio Bravo and its bookend El Dorado were Hawks borrowing back from the New Wave forms and topping them tongue in cheek in the Western. While all the great heady directors were exalting Method actors like Brando, Hawks just said John Wayne was the greatest film actor next to James Cagney that ever lived!! God Hawks was an absolute man!

    Influenced a lot of women to become cops, too.
