James Earl Jones As Darth Vader On Your CB Radio

parislemon:

The New York Time Magazine sat down with James Earl Jones — the best parts:

You made your film debut as a member of the B-52 bomber crew in Stanley Kubrick’s “Dr. Strangelove.” How did that happen?

George C. Scott was playing Shylock in Shakespeare in the Park when Kubrick came to look him over. I was also in the play, as the Prince of Morocco, and Kubrick said, “I’ll take the black one, too.” That’s not what he actually said, but that’s the way I like to put it.

And:

You’re never tempted to pick up the phone and pretend to be Darth Vader?

I did that once when I was traveling cross-country. I used Darth as my handle on the CB radio. The truck drivers would really freak out — for them, it was Darth Vader. I had to stop doing that.

Amazing.

Just because someone desires you, it does not mean that they value you.


Read it over.

Again.

Let those words resonate in your mind.

American Politics

My favorite part is where the masses complain about their elected representative, say the president, for a week, and then find better things to complain about because for the most part they really have zero fucks to give when it comes to politics anyways.

Arizona “not just flyover country any more”, I’m giving the “sunshine state” its due.

If you replaced the mountain in the background with a thumb shaped rock instead, this could easily be downtown Prescott. Am kinda homesick now …
