I think Henry Rollins goes to my gym

And if that's him, he's gotten all of his tattoos removed.

Whose Henry Rollins?

Hasselback said...

Oh wow. I honestly am at a loss for words...

spydrz said...

"We're standard-issue street soldiers."

Micah said...

Mindy, Mindy, Mindy. Just go here.

Of course, I jest. But there's this dude at my gym that looks a lot like Hank. Right down to the graying hair.

KPMD said...

Can you see if he'll do some spoken word for us? I do loves me my Hank.

Micah said...

Maybe I'll ask him what it was like working with Dolph Lundgren in Johnny Mnemonic the next time he's on the machine next to me.

The whole thing reminds me of Sgt. Maj. Henry Rollins of Shamrock's ROTC group.

Captain Backfire said...

Ask him why he sold out and did that sorry-ass movie with Charlie Sheen and Kristy Swanson.

Nevermind: answered my own question with two words: Kristy Swanson.

Micah said...

Exactly. And he got to work with Flea, which is its own reward.

KPMD said...

Oh man, I had forgotten about Sgt. Major Henry Rollins. That guy really didn't look anything like Henry Rollins.

CB - How could he turn down a chance to work with the great thespian, Flea?

KPMD said...

:( Micah beat me to the pithy comment :(

Captain Backfire said...

Further proof that KPMD married the wrong spider...

Anyway, a quick glance at ol' Hank's IMDB bio indicates he not only starred in Heat with Pacino & DeNiro, but also...Jack Frost with...Michael Keaton. Whaaa????

spydrz said...

Jack Frost? Was he having problems making the Sea-Ray payment?

Micah said...

...and Michael Keaton was in Batman with Jack Nicholson, who was in A Few Good Men with KEVIN BACON. YES!

Captain Backfire said...

Remember the good old days, when Batman didn't have nipples, and he didn't hang around with the chick from Clueless? Man, I miss 1989. Nipple-less Batman, Capri Suns, and Toaster Strudels. Damn...I miss my youth.

Micah said...

Blame Joel Schumacher, my friend. Christopher Nolan + Christian Bale - Bat Nipples = hopefully a good Batman flick.

Captain Backfire said...

Make no mistake: as soon as the matinee showing of the newly boob-less Lindsey Lohan's Herbie: Fully Loaded gets out, I'm all about the new Batflick.

The Memento dude and the guy from American Psycho? Yeah...I'm so there.

spydrz said...

How much do movies cost up there in the land of Manhattan?

Captain Backfire said...

It's actually quite reasonable: you pay $11 to see the flick on the big screen, and then you buy a bootleg DVD of said flick for $10 on the walk home through Chinatown. Can't go wrong...

spydrz said...

I have a buddy who just picked up three different copies of Revenge of the Sith in China. Amazingly, the packaging on one shows Harrison Ford as a star.

Micah said...

CB - $11 for a movie? And the industry wonders why it's in a slump. I'm never letting go of my student ID. $6.50 movies for life, boy-eeeeeee!

spydrz - I think the bootleggers are just jumping the gun for the inevitable Revenge of the Sith Special Edition that George Lucas will release in a few years...with newly restored footage of Han Solo shooting Yoda first.

The Law Fairy said...

.... where he first meets Chewy! Brilliant!

Of course, it will take some Star Trek IV-esque time-manipulation to pull off, but what the hell...

Micah said...

It's not like the Star Wars saga doesn't already have time problems. I submit the age differences between Anakin and Padme in The Phantom Menace and then in Attack of the Clones. Plus, at the end of Sith, Luke's aunt and uncle looked like they came fresh out of a WB show.

Man, do I sound like an internet fanboy?

Speaking of which, I read somewhere that Han was actually in the first draft of the Sith script, but that idea was quickly nixed. Not sure how true that is.

End of geekness.

KPMD said...

Wow, after that diatribe, I'm pretty sure I married the right spider.

Kate The Great said...

Back to Henry Rollins. You make me so jealous Micah (but you have a way of doing that). I'd be HR's hollaback girl any day of the week. Tats and all.

Hasselback said...

Now is this "Mindy" that sparked all of this controversy our Mindy from law school Micah?

Michelle said...

oh gosh, I hope he's not in the area. there's not enough room in Columbus for that big ole neck of his!

Micah said...

KPMD - Oh, c'mon. You know that the only reason you married Shamrock is because he saw you first. We couldn't break the Male Code.

KtG - Hank is bananas. B-A-N-A-N-A-S. Actually, I briefly met him after one of his spoken word shows. He signed one of his books and I got to shake his hand (talk about a death grip). He's also much shorter than you'd think.

George - It's likely her. Seems like something she'd ask. I think it should be said that the last time Rollins rolled into town I bought two tickets, anticipating bringing this particular girl to the show, but brought...George. And he didn't even put out afterwards!

michelle - Seriously, the dude is pumped.

Kris said...

Uh, I'll take the award for Most Shallow Comment by asking where you work out... so that I can stare, of course.

I wish every man aged that well.

I met him after a Spoken Word once on Long Island, and I don't care how B-A-N-A-N-A-S he is, he's still S-M-O-K-I-N-G H-O-T

this.heartbreak.shall.endure. said...

you should totally become work-out buddies. Think of how cool it would be to say, "yeah, me and henry rollins were blasting our triceps, doing some skull crushers today..."

also, your gym better be like Mickey's gym or some other rundown dive, or else I'm taking back half the "rugged points" I gave you for Bearded Micah Myspace.com Profile Photo.

Micah said...

Kris - Attention stalkers: I work out at the California Fitness on Sawmill. I think I've only seen the dude there during the day. Have fun!

heartbreak - Uh...no comment. C'mon, let me keep my rugged points. Why do you think I changed my profile pic back to that one? I want to be the Brawny guy.

Hasselback said...

Rugged? Micah?

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!!!!!

Sorry brother, I love ya, but you're about as rugged as chunky-style peanut butter.

Whoo, I almost had an accident I was laughing so hard.

Micah said...

George - I'll have you know that I once went two days without a shower.

Kris said...

Oh, then I already know who you're talking about because I work out there! Weird I haven't seen you, too.

I'm way past my stalker phase - don't worry. That was soooo 1995.

Micah said...

Small world! Maybe I'll see you there sometime. I'll put in a good word with Rollins.
