FX greenlights Kurt Sutter's 'Crow'
By MICHAEL SCHNEIDER
FX has greenlit the pilot "Forever Sam Crow," a drama from "The Shield" exec producer Kurt Sutter about the world of biker gangs in Northern California.
Sutter wrote the script and will exec produce along with Art and John Linson; project first hit FX's doorstep last fall
Casting is under way, along with the search for a director; the exec producers and FX hope to get cameras rolling sometime early next year. FX and Linson Films are producing, while another studio will be brought aboard at a later date.
"Forever Sam Crow" refers to the nickname of the group at the center of the project: The Sons of Anarchy Motorcycle Club Redwood Original (Samcro). Project was the brainchild of John Linson, who knows several motorcycle club members in Northern California.
To research the script, Sutter also spent several days with members of the Hell's Angels in Oakland.
"These are regular guys," Sutter said. "But I didn't doubt for one second that they couldn't slit my throat if need be."
Set in fictional Charming,Calif.,"Forever Sam Crow" revolves around 33-year-old Jackson "Jax" Teller, the vice president of Samcro and son of the late club founder. According to Sutter, the character is at a crossroads in life and figuring out his place in both his blood family and his brotherhood family.
Key characters also include Jax's mother, Gemma Teller, and stepfather, Samcro president Clay Morrow.
Sutter said he wanted to stay away from one obvious plot device -- making Samcro a meth-dealing group -- and instead has the gang maintaining a gun-running operation.
Scribe said he also wanted to paint a more realistic portrait of motorcycle club members, noting that most TV and film projects depict them either as completely ruthless outlaws or as lovable teddy bears with a gruff exterior.
Sutter and Art and John Linson originally pitched "...

An application was for employment
A program was a TV show
A cursor used profanity
And a keyboard was on a piano!
Memory was something that you lost with age
And a CD was a bank account
And if you had a corrupted disk
It would hurt when you found out!
Compress was what you did to garbage
Not something you did to a file
And if you unzipped anything in public
You'd be in jail for a while!
Log on was adding wood to a fire
A hard drive was a trip on the road
A mouse pad was where a mouse lived
And a backup happened to the commode!
Cutting, you did with a pocket knife,
Pasting, you did with glue.
The Web was where a spider lived
And a virus was the flu!

Typhoon Rips Through Cemetery: Hundreds Dead
This list of words (that are not words) is supposed to have come from a Washington Post Invitational. I searched but could not find it on their website. The idea was to take and real word and alter it by adding, subtracting or changing one letter.
Intaxication: Euphoria at getting a tax refund, which lasts until you realize it was your money to start with.
Reintarnation: Coming back to life as a hillbilly.

I found this somewhere and kinna like it.
Cant trust no woman
Not this one not that
Every time that I do
I wind up with a flat
Sugar in my gas tank
Is what love is to me
A victim of circumstance
A place not to be
So my guard is up
My blinders are on
Now hear me out Brother
And don't get me wrong
If your woman is righteous
Your not lucky your blessed
But for me Ill ride solo
Till they lay me to rest
I found this on another site and thought ya all might like it.
I want to go back to a time when decisions were made by chanting "eeny, meeny, miney, mo". When mistakes were easily corrected by proclaiming "do over!"
When the worst financial problem you could have was not being chosen "banker" in Monopoly. When "race issue" meant arguing about who could run fastest.
When the worst thing you could catch from the opposite gender was cooties. When having a weapon in school meant being caught with a squirt gun. When "war" was a card game. When the ultimate weapon was a water balloon.
When getting a foot of snow was a dream come true. When the most serious thing that angered you was the fact that dodgeball wasn't an Olympic event.
When Saturday morning cartoons weren't 30-minute ads for toys. When catching fireflies could happily occupy an entire evening. When spinning around, getting dizzy, and falling down was a cause for hysterical giggles.
When a deck of playing cards and a few clothespins transformed any bike into a motorcycle. When oddities like a freshly dug cellar hole or a newly felled tree were considered toys. When the term "batteries not included" hadn't yet been coined.
When a dollar would buy you a month's worth of penny candy. When the highlight of your summer day was hearing the dulcet tones of the ice cream truck making its rounds. When a picnic was the social event of the season.
I wanna be a kid again!
Why did the chicken cross the road?
GEORGE W. BUSH: We don't really care why the chicken crossed the road. We just want to know if the chicken is on our side of the road or not. The chicken is either with us or it is against us. There is no middle ground here.
AL GORE: I invented the chicken. I invented the road. therefore, the chicken crossing the road represented the application of these two different functions of government in a new, reinvented way designed to bring greater services to the American people.
COLIN POWELL: Now at the left of the screen, you clearly see the satellite image of the chicken crossing the road.
HANS BLIX: We have reason to believe there is a chicken, but we have not yet been allowed access to the other side of the road.
MOHAMMED ALDOURI: (Iraq ambassador) The chicken did not cross the road. This is a complete fabrication. We don't even have a chicken.
SADDAM HUSSEIN: This was an unprovoked act of rebellion and we were quite justified in dropping 50 tons of nerve gas on it.
RALPH NADER: The chicken's habitat on the original side of the road had been polluted by unchecked industrialist greed. The chicken did not reach the unspoiled habitat on the other side of the road because it was crushed by the wheels of a gas-guzzling SUV.
PAT BUCHANAN: To steal a job from a decent, hard-working American.
RUSH LIMBAUGH: I don't know why the chicken crossed the road, but I'll bet it was getting a government grant to cross the road, and I'll bet someone out there is already forming a support group to help chickens with crossing-the-road syndrome. Can you believe this? How much more of this can real Americans take? Chickens crossing the road paid for by their tax dollars, and when I say tax dollars, I'm talking about your money, money the government took from you to build roads for chickens to cross.

DOUGHBOY, Pillsbury; 71, of Corn Field County, USA; died last week of a yeast infection and complications from repeated pokes in the belly;
husband of Play Dough; father of three children (John Dough, Jane Dough, and one in the oven); son of his elderly father (Pop Tart);
Doughboy was buried in a lightly greased coffin;
dozens of celebrities turned out to pay their respects, including Mrs. Butterworth, Hungry Jack, the California Raisins, Betty Crocker, the Hostess Twinkies,and Captain Crunch.
The gravesite was piled high with flours; Aunt Jemima delivered the eulogy and lovingly described Doughboy as a man who never knew how much he was kneaded; Rose quickly in show business, but his later life was filled with turnovers;
he was not considered a very 'smart' cookie, wasting much of his dough on half-baked schemes; despite being a little flaky at times, he was considered a roll model for millions;
the funeral was held yesterday at 3:50 for about 20 minutes
Hey Dman, a great blog. I have had that conversation with myself so many times that I can't count the number. Sometimes it's easier to talk yourself out of even trying to meet someone. Kind of a shame, though. You never know what you or they might miss. Kind of makes you wonder, do the ladies have the same conversation with themselves?
