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.

You had me at My Sharona and Bernie Mac

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.

2011 Preview with Tractor Traylor

There are a few movies I’m looking forward to getting a chance to see in 2011 and all of them are Transformers 3. Here’s a few:

The Wild Hunt
This is a Canadian flick that made the rounds and played really well at the Toronto International Film Festival and some others. I was going to jaunt up to Toronto for it but I had a huge month for pussy last September and just didn’t make it.

This one looks pretty good. No Channing Tatum, so points against there, but still could be good.

Hesher
Joseph Gordon Levitt has almost made the total transition to awesome, respectable actor. This one could be the flick that puts him over the top.

This is not a trailer, just a scene from the flick but it gives you an idea what kind of badassery is in store. Hesher played to huge buzz and somewhat mixed reviews at Sundance 2010. Here’s an article from NYT about the movie. Which if you hate reading links, will be released in April of this year.

Drive Angry
If you thought there would be an entire year without six or more awesome Nic Cage movies, then clearly you have no idea how much he owes the IRS in back taxes.

Holy. Crap. I don’t think I can say anything to add to this film’s intensity and boner inducing badassery.

There’s plenty more flicks out there that we’ll be sure to keep you abreast of.

The Test Results Just Came Back…

Excuse me if I’m a little choked up, but I just got off the phone with my urologist. He confirmed my worst fears. I’ve noticed for the past few weeks my jeans have been getting a little tighter, my voice a little higher and my hair a little longer and more feathered. Well, after being swabbed yesterday and running a number of tests through the night, Doc Brown called me this morning and delivered a devastating blow when he told me, “Son, it appears you’ve contracted Bieber Fever.”

I dropped the phone to the floor, speechless. Ran to my computer to check some movie news to try to get my mind off the terrible news. I figured I could do a Halloween post, maybe count down some of my favorite horror movies. Clicking through my regular run of sites I see a news tab: Never Say Never Trailer Released. “What is this? A new James Bond movie? Prequel to Connery’s Never Say Never Again?” Boy oh boy was I wrong.

James Bond it certainly was not. As I found out by clicking on the link and watching the trailer to Justin Bieber’s new documentary/self-pat on the back, Bieber Fever has a strange way of striking when you least expect it. I have so many questions after watching this trailer: Who are “they” who said he would never make it? Are we sure Justin Bieber isn’t just a girl who listens to the Indigo Girls and KD Lang? Why does Justin Bieber have a 5 o’clock shadow in this picture?

Oh jeez, I’m breaking out in hives, too much Beiber for one day! I’m gonna go get ready to do manly stuff tomorrow to try to get my fever down; drink some beer, watch some football and get my lady-killin Halloween costume together (check it out below!)

 

I'm going to need a stick to keep the girls from mobbing me this weekend
