The Way You Act a Fool Son You Can't Erase
So for those of you who have real jobs, you may not know this. I may be performing a public service right now. Here goes: Spike TV has been showing old episodes of The Equalizer in the mornings. You may be saying to yourself, "Boy, he's making the most of his time at school." Actually, I was using it as background to writing a paper on a personal information management software tool.
Anyway, let's just say that The Equalizer sucks. The music by Stewart Copeland? Awful. The acting? Gawd. The plots? Puhleaze. Edward Woodward? Actually the best part of the show, though that's not saying much. The thing that makes it so awesome is that it is so awful, and this particular episode featured the nascent acting talents of the Beastie Boys' Adrock, a.k.a. Adam Horovitz. He went on to star in Lost Angels and Roadside Prophets, but neither comes close to attaining the suckitude of his performance as the titular "Mama's Boy" Ronald Baines.
So, to you Equalizer, I raise my glass in tribute. 1985 was a fine year.
