Culture? Whut's 'at?

From Reflections in D Minor via Harvey.

The Trailer Trash Culture Thingy.

1. UPN or Fox? Fox 'cuz you can't get UPN with an Antennae.
2. roller derby or WWE? Roller Derby, 'cuz Jim Croce wrote a fun song about it.
3. Loretta Lynn or Tammy Wynette? I grew up listening to "Bofum", and I ain't gonna pick one.
4. Tony Lama or Durango? Durango, 'cuz I like thier web site better.
5. fried Spam or fried boloney? Fried baloney. Two slices of "light bread", a fat slice of onion, and a generous slathering of mayo. Mmm Mmm. That's good eatin'.
6. Buck Owens or Porter Wagoner? Buck Owens, for his work on Hee Haw.
7. fiddle or banjo? Both. Proper Bluegrass cannot be played without either instrument.
8. Texas or Tennessee? Where do I live again? Oh Yeah, Knoxville Tennessee. 'Nuff said.
9. Ford or Chevy? (pickup of course) Can't help you here, 'cuz I like Dodges.
10. extended cab or long bed? Both
11. Tabasco or Texas Pete's? I like them both, but I prefer Texas Pete's.
12. Saints or Cowboys? I don't really like either, but I'll go with Nawlins 'cuz they're closer to me geographically.
13. baseball cap or cowboy hat? Ball cap. My collection is down to only 40 or so after I did a purge.
14. double wide or single wide? Single. Bigger redwood deck.
15. Wal-mart or K-mart? Wally World, due to the fact that they haven't been in cahoots with Martha Stewart.
16. "Your Cheatin' Heart" or "I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry"? I'm not in a relationship right now, so "Lonesome" fills the bill.
17. Gunsmoke or Bonanza? Gotta go with Gunsmoke.
18. Johnny Cash or Merle Haggard? (ooooh... tough choice) Cash. He was just cooler all the way around.
19. catfish or buffalo wings? Buffalo Wings. Maybe it's a holdover from the fact that I was born in Johnson City New York. Might be genetic or something.
20. Charlie Daniels Band or ZZ Top? This one was tough for me, as I own music from both of them. The song "Mexican Blackbird" pushed ZZ over the Top.
21. Velvet painting: Elvis or bullfighter? Elvis. Tennessee Hellooo.
22. Plastic sunflowers or plastic flamingos? Sunflowers, 'cuz most of them are pinwheels as well. A big 'ole flower going roundy-roundy with the wind looks so perfect next to the redwood deck.
23. Lawn chairs: molded plastic or aluminum frame? Plastic, 'cuz they tend to hold up better when you fall into them in a drunken stupor.
24. John Wayne or Clint Eastwood? Both are icons, but Clint's performance in "Unforgiven" trumps all. Did I mention that he directed it as well?

...I really expected more from you, Johnny... you've let me down... everyone knows that John Wayne could snap Eastwood in half like a dry little twig... I mean, c'mon boy... Eastwood may have had the STARE, but Wayne had the best "let's roll" lines... remember that scene in True Grit?... so, I must respectfully beg to differ with the Extremist on this salient point...

...and, with all that said, welcome to the RTB!!!

Always controvertial am I. Nothing like sparking up a debate. "Fill your hands you sonofabitch!" I believe is the one you're referring to, and I've got to admit it sure beats the hell out of "Do you feel lucky?". Damnit, I shoulda said both.

Thanks for the welcome!

I get UPN with an antenna. I guess maybe Fox is a little more trashy but I like UPN better because they're the only broadcast network that has anything remotely resembling a sci-fi series.
