Guy I wouldn’t kick out of bed – Kiefer Sutherland

Posted by lanktank on October 28, 2009

I’ve always had a thing for Kiefer Sutherland – I’ve had a crush on him since forever but I suppose it only really turned into true love when I started watching 24.

You don’t get much manlier than Jack Bauer. If I was stuck in a sealed box, covered with explosive artillery, in the middle of God knows where, surrounded by terrorists, guns and barbed wire, but, Jack Bauer was with me, I wouldn’t even stress. In fact, I’d catch a few winks in the box while he talks to Chloe, Re: escape route, and just ask him to; “Wake me up when it’s time to get out of here.”

Although, to be fair, not many of the leading ladies in Jack’s life seem to make it… to the next season… if you know what I mean.

Regardless, the man is hot! And Kiefer seems super cool. Like he used to be in the rodeo and has a cool dad, and gets into fights with people to defend his friends. That kind of stuff.

When I asked my father if he would approve of my and Kiefer’s love – he said; “Kiefer, you can date – Jack Bauer you cannot.”

Fair enough.

The hypothetical: Jack vs Jason

Posted by lanktank on April 29, 2009

If Jack Bauer and Jason Bourne got into a fight, who would win and why?

LT: I’m going with Jack – don’t get me wrong Jason Bourne knows how to whip some ass but Jack is old school and I’ve also watched more episodes of 24. I’ve sat through every single season and watched as Jack lost his wife, got disowned by his daughter, let’s not forget the Chinese kidnapping and anyone else remember the heroine addiction fiasco? I’m emotionally invested. Jason only had the trilogy. I mean, they were awesome, but I have to go on commitment here and on that, Jack wins.

C-Dawg: Jason Bourne will win, but Jack Bauer might make him cry a little. While women constantly try to get involved with Jason, he knows there’s no place for them in his life – they’re just a liability. Jack, on the other hand, has loved ones, and loved ones can be used as bargaining chips. Jason has nothing to lose, besides, this time it’s personal…

Kappie: First things first: What are Jason and Jack fighting about? A girl? The last piece of bacon at breakfast? A map to Osama’s lair to stop him once and for all? Also, Jack would have a team of experts with him that could lend a hand, whereas Jason works alone and would have no support. Jason would probably be more well trained in fighting and weaponry though and could probably finish a fight in less than 24 hours.

It really comes down to whoever gets the first punch in because one punch could start and end the fight… just depends on how much either of them love bacon.

GND: Jason Bourne is hotter. Jason Bourne wins.

Dmeister: I’m going to have to go with Jason Bourne. Firstly Jack Bauer’s got the whole emotional issue, he’s daughter doesn’t speak to him, his wife’s dead and he used to be drug addict. On top of that he’s been tortured and beaten more times than anyone can remember (That’s got to affect your reflexes). Jason Bourne on the other hand doesn’t get beaten, he does the beating. He doesn’t have any real attachments except maybe just one lucky lady and on top of that he’s doesn’t have a past that’s going to haunt him emotionally seeing that he can’t remember anything.

But saying that Jason doesn’t want to kill anymore and Jack pretty much kills everyone even people he likes. So Jason wins the hand to hand, but if it comes down to killing Jack’s the man.
FirstChild: This is difficult. My feeling is that Jason is smarter, and will outwit jack. That said, is this a season where Jack has the help of Chloe and Tony Almeida? Then I would favour Jack.

Where have all the Cowboy, show’s gone?

Posted by lanktank on January 30, 2009

This blog entry was brought to you by Dmeister


So here I am writing my first blog. The thought of which started when I realized there was a whole world of people out there writing their daily thoughts and opinions. So I thought, why be different? What makes other people’s opinions better than mine? Agreed, nothing. So if they can give you their opinion when their wrong, why can’t I give you mine when I’m right? And that’s the reason I’ve decided to write about truths and justices and things that are wrong with the world. There has to be a beacon of light for people somewhere out there.


I thought I’d start with something that has been on my mind for a while: Television.
I have a question: What happened to all the good, “Man” shows we used to have? Now I’m hearing the sounds of hundreds (well maybe not hundreds), tens of people, saying, “What do you mean? There are tons of good programs on television at the moment.” Really, there are?


Okay, let’s work through a few shall we? Ah, let’s see; There’s Ugly Betty (Ugly girl with too many feelings, and that annoying “let’s freak out about everything” attitude), Grey’s Anatomy (Nurse with too many feelings and man is she confused). Now you’re probably thinking, wait a minute, those are girls programs? Agreed, but then why are so many guys watching them? The only thing happening in the story is that someone loves someone that doesn’t love them or someone hates someone because they think they did something that upsets them but actually they love them as well, they just don’t know it yet, etc. And these seem to be recurring themes in almost all the current big television shows at the moment. Apparently someone decided that it’s not a TV show unless there are emotions and long-winded discussions involved, and my money says that Tom Cruise and Scientology are probably behind it, but that’s just my guess, but a story for another time. Moving on… Read the rest of this entry »
