More Shia Love
blakehenderson: You know what’s another good Shia movie, since we’re talking about it? Constantine. Definitely has Shia doin’ some fun bits. Ders, Adam, after all this talk we should check this out tonight, or at least add it to our Titans of Friendship Movie Night Que. He’s the LaBe-st. Dudes, we’re watching the Greatest Game Ever Played as the appetizer, then feasting on...
Watched a really interesting documentary about Shia LaBeouf on the Biography Channel last night… I think he may not just be the next Tom Hanks, but the FIRST Shia LaBeouf
Who's Stupid Now, Ders?
adamdemamp: I just forwarded your “Reply” to Heidi Stinson. Bet you meant to take that out before posting publicly. We’ll see what she has to say about your virgin status. If I were consulting YOU Ders? I’d recommend you proofread more better. Heidi Stinson changed her e-mail address years ago, so if you got it out of my rolodex, jokes on you. Good luck finding her on Facebook, too....
adamdemamp asked: Anders, do you find that being a virgin affects your performance at work?
Not So Funny Anymore...
I was Watching “Real Sports” last night and there was a piece about the link between concussions and ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease). This reminded me of the line in “Ace Ventura, Pet Detective” when Dan Marino tells Lieutenant Einhorn/Ray Finkle, “I don’t know. I get hit in the head a lot.” It’s not so funny now that we know how serious the...
Blake's Fun Time Place: In Defense of Purple Rain →
blakehenderson: Look Ders, I get that we have different tastes when it comes to film, but I will not stand idly by and let you besmirch “Purple Rain.” I don’t know how you can call it “silly” and claim that “nobody behaves like that” when you know damn well that Prince is one of my top 5 heroes and that Apollonia… If Prince had just gotten a real job? He’d be a TAXPAYER. Which...
Sorry, Blake. "Purple Rain" Sucks.
Blake, it was my understanding that by watching “Purple Rain” together and bonding as pals you would take down your post where you criticized my 5 star Netflix choices. Since you have failed to perform this task I am going to be real with you; possibly more real than you can handle. “Purple Rain” is dumb. There, I said it. For one thing, the movie is totally over the...
Addt. Note on Movie Posts →
It dawns on me that in my previous post regarding my favorite sales-related films, I forgot to give credit to an inspiration for the idea — my friend Blake Henderson, and his engaging Tumblr, “Blake’s Fun Time Place” (link provided). He didn’t invent the movie listing by genre — and really, did it have to be invented? Anyway, my subconscious must have...
The Debt Ceiling
I’m really starting to freak out. If the Democrats and Republicans don’t reach some kind of compromise before August 2nd then the United States’ credit rating will be lowered and all kinds of hell will break loose. We are supposed to be a shining beacon of good credit, but our reputation is being tarnished every day that this charade continues. I always manage to pay off the...
NFL Lockout Ends
It’s official, the NFL will be back this fall. Can’t say I’m surprised, it seems like the owners slow-played the players to the point they had to approve the deal they wanted. I’m not going to get into the deal points, the numbers, the specifics of what was agreed to; but it’s clear that the labor negotiations hindered on three things; 1) the owners breaking the...

Attention The Ders Report Readers
Oh, and, uh, my account security is back on the level. That She Hulk thing was definitely a hacker, tho. Search for the real poster continues.
Blake's Fun Time Place: Weekend Plans →
adamdemamp: Think I’m going to see The Switch Up this weekend. I really identify with Ryan Reynold’s character, being a playboy who longs for a family life. But I still like my playboy lifestyle, so getting it back in the end with a newfound perspective is pretty cool. Or I’ll just see… Guys, I tell you this all the time, I’m right behind you, just turnaround and ask me,...
Tiger Uncaged →
News breaking that Tiger Woods fired his longtime caddie, Steve Williams. A lot of people are commenting that this is a mistake by the most dominant golfer of ours, or any, generation. But I for one applaud the move. Tiger Wood’s job is to WIN. His caddy’s job? Help him win. If Tiger’s not winning, ergo, something is wrong with the picture. My Dad says, “When...
Hey Adam, I know you’re reading this. You owe me $70. Asshole. adamdemamp: Ders left his laptop open and didn’t close his online poker account. Gonna play a few hands.
Who Ders Follows
Twitter. In the changing face of our economic world, it’s where things are getting done. Direct Messages have replaced iCal invites for business lunches. News is posted before it even happens. The President uses it (see below for proof!). Anyway you slice it, like the Internet, its here to stay. But in a social media where one decides their own filters, how do you know you’re not filtering out...
DERS' BEST FRIEND STANDINGS - As of 7-11
My Father Blake Chooch Everyone else I’m friends with… then, after my enemies list— LAST: Adam DeMamp Adam can talk about my ruining HIS Transformers experience, but HE ruined MY movie-going experience when he— A) Was not ready to leave by my pre-determined time of 45 minutes before showtime; B) Once again didn’t “have cash” for the tickets so...
