Monday Merriment: A Little Spontaneous Combustion, Anyone?


Welcome back, everyone. As you can see, I’ve titled this post “A Little Spontaneous Combustion, Anyone?” because it’s my first work day of 2015 and I feel like having a lot of spontaneous combustion, anyone. I won’t get into specifics or point fingers here, but let’s just say the stupidity has achieved positively suffocating levels today.

As such, not a ton of time for Merriment just now (this may change when I get home tonight and pour myself a nice bourbon), so I’m keeping this post brief. Here’s a quick video I enjoyed from three guys you might know: Rob Reiner, Christopher Guest and Michael McKean:

This, of course, is a clip from Reiner’s classic, This is Spinal Tap. If you haven’t seen the film…first off, how? Second off…it’s a mockumentary, featuring Guest and McKean playing members of a heavy metal band called, you guessed it…Spinal Tap. The band features a rotating lineup of drummers throughout the film, all of whom end up dying in bizarre circumstances. Funny enough, spontaneous combustion is probably the most normal among them–some of the others include a “bizarre gardening accident” and choking to death on someone else’s vomit.

It’s better if you just watch the movie, so I’ll leave it at that. Anyway, that was a nice minute of respite. Hope you enjoyed it as well. Back to the grind, but check back later for Quickies!


Live. Love. Plow. Horns Up.
