"Papa Jack" Arnold Weil (March 28, 1901 – August 13, 2008)

The World's Oldest CEO and Colorado Legend, "Papa Jack" Weil owner of Rockmount Ranch Wear in Denver, passed away at the ripe old Age of 107.

Weil was well-known for coining the phrase "The West is not a place, it is a state of mind." He was the first person to put snaps on Western shirts, patented the saw-tooth pocket design seen on many Western shirts, and was credited with inventing the bolo tie. He also helped design many of the costumes in Brokeback Mountain and Elvis' western wear in LOVE ME TENDER.

Weil's wife died in 1990, followed by his son Jack B. in 2008.

He claimed to have quit smoking at age 60, drinking at age 90 and eating red meat at 100. However, Weil said he had a shot of
Jack Daniel's twice a week for "medicinal purposes," specifically, to keep his blood thin.

Monday Politick: Fuck Tex Ritter

I met Jason Ritter long long ago in NY at the Atlantic Theater Company. Now, i'm sure most of you will recognize wee Ritter as the offspring of sentimental favorite and incredibly under-appreciated actor John Ritter. Yet, being the incredibly retarded and reality impaired bone-head that I am, when I met young Jason my immediate reaction was to ask if he had any relation to Tex Ritter, the famous singing cowboy.

To my delight, I found out all three Ritters were Rittlated.


You can listen here to Tex singing CIGARETTES, WHISKY & WILD WILD WOMEN

And yes, we know and Love Johnny and Jason from their TV appearances and movies.

But the real reason to be waxing Ritterick, is because deep in the guts of the YOU TUBE, i came across this video of Tex Ritter on the Dick Cavett show discussing cowboy films and his quest to become a Republican Senator from Tennesee.

Now, if'n Tex had been eelected, then he would have beaten Albert Gore Senior for the post, thereby aborting Al Jr's eventual rise to green saviordom, not allowing him to neglect his paternal duties thereby sparing his son a DUI charge.


So you see, Tex Ritter is to blame for Bush being president.


Kafka's Pron

A stash of explicit pornography to which Franz Kafka subscribed has emerged for the first time after being studiously ignored by scholars anxious to preserve the iconic writer's saintly image.
