Anticipation Killing U2?

As if the wanting wave can't rise any higher for G:TB's exclusive report on 08/17/2009, here's an approved piece of film making that just might put (at least 2) readers over the Edge... Realizing we're not preaching to a documentary sort of crowd, anyone can appreciate the shear coolness of the guitar. And unlike this director's previous film, An Inconvenient Truth, even Republicans won't be able to argue the importance of the subject matter's existence in world culture. If nothing else it'll slow the burn of the ruin of the Bert and Ernie clip. Oh, and Jack White makes a guitar out of a 2x4, a coke bottle and a rusty piece of wire. How slick is that? Check it...

Monday's installment of G:TB better have something better than a YooToob clip or a review of Chinese Democracy.

rob said...

that trailer is really, really cool.

Whitney said...

"not preaching to a documentary sort of crowd"

Interesting.

TJ said...

I take offense to that. rob and I are big fans of documentaries.

TR said...

I saw the Ron Jeremy documentary. Amusing and pathetic.

rob said...

i loved spinal tap

Mark said...

I too love documentaries. HBO has a good series of them running right now. I watched the first half of "The Nine Lives of Marion Barry" last night...good, good stuff.

Shlara said...

You guys have no idea what's going to hit you on Monday. Everyone has to promise that you're going to submit your immediate reactions in the comments section..

rob said...

sweet jesus. no pressure, or anything.

Mark said...

This is going to be SOOOO disappointing after all this buildup...

Whitney said...

All right, I'm just coming out and blurting the story. Rob is getting his legs lengthened this weekend. He'll be 6'2" and finally a man by Monday.

zoltan said...

Whitney is getting his schwantz lengthened as well. So he and rob will both finally be men by Monday. Their wedding is scheduled for the following Sunday in Brewster.

Mark said...

And I'm getting my beard lengthened.

Whitney said...

Mr. Zoltan, I should inform you that the ladies tell me I definitely don't need my "schwantz" lengthened...

...that it could be of equine-like proportions and my abrasive personality would still drive them away cross-legged.

So I've got that going for me.

Dennis said...

For those watching the PGA Champ right now....WATERBALL!

Mark said...

Finally watched the trailer. Rob's right. It is really, really cool. Shit, it gave me goosebumps at one point.

TR said...

Tough start for Tim Howard and Everton in week 1 of EPL action. A brutal 6-1 loss to Arsenal means a little more humble pie for US futbol fans.

rob said...

how 'bout a weekly epl update on g:tb, tr? or we each pick a team and follow along? teejay can have man u.

rob said...

jammed the everlovin' fuck out of my index finger playing hoops this morning. forgot how much that hurts.

rob said...

paddy harrington wearing red. i like it.

zoltan said...

I just read the following description of Y.E. Yang:

"He's sneaky long, especially if the fairways are firm. He rocks the putter and rolls the putts well. Good fairway wood player. Lower ball flight than I like, but probably plays well in the wind, like at the Honda. Gonna get drilled by Tiger, just like everyone else."

Who could write this with a straight face?

rob said...

game on.

rob said...

chone figgins has 1,000 career hits. i would not have guessed that. nor would i have guessed you could spell sean that way.

TR said...

I see your jammed finger and raise you one (possibly) broken little toe. I wailed it into a doorframe for no reason the other night. Hurt so much I almost cried. It's bloated and purple, like a mini sausage. I am dreading having to put work loafers on in the morning.

rob said...

paddy harrington putting for an 8 on a par 3. money.

rob said...

been a long time since tiger's hit this many indifferent shots while in contention.

rob said...

is yang korean for beem?

Geoff said...

Tiger's playing like a guy who thinks he can shoot 74 and win. Probably true.

Geoff said...

CBS...having issues.

rob said...

sweet production by cbs - totally missed tiger's shot at 13 and then showed tiger/yang walking while westwood finished his round. quality.

rob said...

like geoff said

Geoff said...

Since TJ's not here...hey Yang, don't tell em you're jewish...

rob said...

whoa. yang.

Geoff said...

Well now this is fun. How bout the balls on Yang.

Geoff said...

366 yards off the tee for Tiger in 15. Not a lot of guys have that in their bag.

rob said...

i've never, ever seen tiger hit mishit a shot like that. this is weird.

Geoff said...

It was a great miss...as misses go. 265 yard five wood on a downhill like is tough...he was over focused on making sure to hit down on it so he wouldn't spray it right...and chunked it.

rob said...

yeah, my misses scream off the toe into a house. his go 190 yards straight.

rob said...

you think eldrick makes a quiet call after this round to someone at the pga to say, 'hey, no more fucking hazeltine, eh?'.

Geoff said...

Yang's got alligator blood.

Geoff said...

This might be over right here. If you had Cabrera, Glover, Cink and Yang, I owe you a beer.

Geoff said...

Turn out the lights...the party's over...

Geoff said...

Oh my...nevermind. Watsonesque putting by Yang.

rob said...

that was almost micheel-esque

rob said...

could have easily been perry, mickelson, watson, woods. what an interesting year in majors.

rob said...

watching mike vick on 60 minutes. either he's been very, very well coached, or he's sincere in his repentance. i generally choose the cynical option, but i believe him.

Shlara said...

I'm sad for Tiger.

rob said...

and i'm sure he's been coached, let's not kid ourselves. but i still buy what he's selling.

Mark said...

Tyson Gay ran the third faster 100 meters in history today at the World Championships in Berlin...and he got blown away by Usain Bolt. Bolt is a freak of the highest order.
