In Memoriam: Robert “Tractor” Traylor

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , on May 11, 2011 by brundleflyonthewall

What an awful, awful day. Not only does Human Target get cancelled, but the world loses a true American hero, Robert “Tractor” Traylor. Traylor was found dead in his apartment in Puerto Rico early Wednesday. As you know, Traylor is a revered figure here at Brundlefly HQ. His iconic image has graced our pages since Day One. As a fat child, and now as a fat adult, Traylor was a true role model for me.

That should've been my head Tractor was palming...*sigh*

I believe I speak for all of us who sported Utility jeans and wore a t-shirt in the pool when I say that Tractor inspired me to believe that one day I too could average 14.7 ppg and 8.9 rpg for a prestigious college basketball program. Alas, I never fulfilled my basketball potential, but Traylor was still a figure I looked up too. In his honor I thought I would post just a few of my favorite Tractor Traylors of all-time.

To say that this trailer doesn’t 110% percent rule ass is like saying Paul Blart: Mall Fart Cop doesn’t 110% rule ass. IT’S JUST A FLAT OUT UNDERSTATEMENT. Mickey Rourke? Check. Bruce Willis? Check. Jessica Alba? Check. Jessica Alba’s hips…..checccckkkk. GunsExplosionsCigarettesFrankMillerBlack&Whitekajshdfkashdfk. It’s just total system overload. Love. It.

Things Fall Apart

Clearly we’ve got the next Spielberg on our hand with director MVP (Mario Van Peebles for those of you who have been living in Iraq or under a rock or whatever). Not since MVP’s performances in Solo and Carlito’s Way: Rise to Power have I been so moved.

Now, I leave you with the coup de grace

Have fun trying to sleep tonight.
