Been obsessed with the movie “Midnight Run” lately since HBO plays it every other day and since Im off from work….. Anyway this is the song from the end credits, and it just gets me pumped for some reason. Cheesy I know but hey thats who I am
Just had thought that seemed fitting in the wake of Hurricane Sandy on what I’ll do the next 2 days as that storm ravages the east coast. I’ll live by the words & actions of Jack Burton who knew a thing or 2 about storms & such.
"Jack Burton just looks that big ol’ storm right square in the eye and he says, “Give me your best shot, pal. I can take it.”
“Just remember what ol’ Jack Burton does when the earth quakes, and the poison arrows fall from the sky, and the pillars of Heaven shake. Yeah, Jack Burton just looks that big ol’ storm right square in the eye and he says, “Give me your best shot, pal. I can take it.”—Big Trouble in Little China - One hell of a movie and one hell of a character
I’m so glad 30 Rock is back, I have missed Jack Donaghy’s wisdom something fierce these last few months. In Thursday night’s episode titled “Today You Are a Man” Jack offered this gem after he finds out when negotiating with Liz Lemon that she has been getting negotiating advice from Jack himself via videos.

I mean come on, you don’t really get better then that do you.
Oakley was overrated and underrated at the same time. Overrated because he was a rebounder, banger, enforcer during the last era, when scoring was down and games were slower and more physical, so his skills were valuable. It’s a more wide-open game now. If he played today, teams would just go small and force him to guard a perimeter player; he wouldn’t be able to do it, and he wouldn’t be able to make the smaller guy pay on the other end. And he couldn’t shoot threes and stretch defenses like a Charlie Villanueva does, so he’d be essentially useless. We know this because there are no successful power forwards with Oakley’s game right now. They’ve all been drummed out of the league. He’d be a role player at best.
On the other hand, he never got enough credit for basically being the real-life Shaft — the coolest guy in the league, as well as the toughest — which is a point I argue vehemently in my book, and threw in a firsthand story as evidence. You couldn’t have played Rileyball in New York without Oakley. He had to be there as the bouncer in the bar, so to speak. Oakley was so cool that MJ adopted him as his real-life enforcer.
