Tondar's Daily Rant

Prepare yourself for the writings of Tondar the Destroyer, Baron of Atlanta, Rightful Heir to the Throne of Spain, from whom all babies come. As his will be blogged, so let it be done.

I don't think I'm the only one excited about Michael Bay's vision of machines from outter space kicking the crap outta eachother on Earth...

NEW YORK (AP) -- The new "Transformers" movie boasts a good cast, but it's got nothing on the original.

In a classic bit of movie trivia, the little-seen 1986 animated film "Transformers: The Movie" was Orson Welles' last film. Yes, that Orson Welles.

The filmmaking legend who remade cinema with "Citizen Kane" (which just again topped AFI's list of 100 greatest movies), directed "Touch of Evil," starred in "The Third Man," impeccably adapted Shakespeare to the screen and panicked the nation with his infamous radio broadcast of "War of the Worlds" -- concluded his career by playing Unicron, an evil shape-shifting planet moon...

...She recalls Welles telling her shortly before he died that he had spent the day "playing a toy."

It's interesting that the article doesn't say WHY Wells decided to take the job as a "toy planet." However, I think it certainly helps to grow the legend of one of my favorite childhood toys/shows.

Hey Tondar, where ya been?

Sorry I have been away for most of June. As many of you know Mistress Angela had cloistered herself away in Nashville to study for Boards. Well she finally left last Sunday to begin her 3rd year of medical school, freeing up my internet connection from her laptop. Unfortunately, after that, my connection was then sabotaged by Comcast and I have not been able to use the computer beyond early evening.

But long story, short: look for a return to the more regular blogging that I have been neglecting for most of 2007. So let it be blogged so let it be done.

From Frank...

Many of you know, and a few do not, but I am getting back into the job market.

If any of you know of any jobs I may be applicable for, I would greatly appreciate it if you could forward along my resume or give me a heads-up on the opening.

Attached is my resume. Please let me know if you have any questions about it.

If you need me to provide any cover letters, please let me know.
I am looking for jobs in the following career fields:
1. Governmental sector (federal, state, local)
2. Consulting
3. Internal Auditing
4. Health Care
5. Political jobs (campaign, Dem party jobs, legislative assistant work)

If you know of any openings in the fields above, either at your places of work or elsewhere, please let m know. Some of you may know consultants through the course of work, know of internal auditing functions at your firms, etc.

Thanks in advance for any assistance you can provide.

Frank, you little bitch:

You have until July 10th to report to Nashville for your new job. Tres and I will share your duties as our new man servant, Giaves. In exchange for shelter, grits, and bumwine you will preform odd jobs including cooking, cleaning, and yard work. You will not be allowed to look upon our women, but you will be permitted to have clothes beyond your shackles and burlap sack.

If you behave we may buy you a Sucky Sucky. Together you can spend the hot Tennessee nights learning Mandarin and coupling in my tool shed.

Your welcome,

In the world of medicine it is best not to use Tondar terminology for certain things.

All it is missing
is Harrison Ford running around with a pot on his head...

Featuring a score by John Williams, some directing by George Lucas, a hero in a Members Only jacket, and a mummy with an 'splodin' head, Turkish Star Wars is exactly the kind of film that I want to make some day.

I could bore you all with stories about how delightful Mistress Angela is. But those aren't the kind of Daily Rants you have come to expect and I'm not that kinda narcissistic black hole. But just for the record - we did drink bumwine, we did have a drunk driving adventure, and I did get punched for saying "cunt" but not "cunty."
