Conan! What is best in life?

The boys and I watched the original Conan last night. A classic.

Tomorrow a new Conan movie arrives. It's like remaking Caddyshack. There's no way it will compare favorably. I don't know why they bother.

The answer: To crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentation of their women.


  1. Original Conan: fishes for Atlantic salmon with two-handed rod

    New Conan: Stocked trout, PowerBait

  2. I agree to the utmost. Look at the photos you posted. Old Conan looks he stepped out of a Frank Frazetta painting. The other looks like he should be the lead singer of a Def Leppard cover band.

  3. T.J. - I think you've captured the fishing equivalency of the situation perfectly.

    Marc - "lead singer of a Def Leppard cover band" I'm still chuckling at that. Nicely put.

  4. I agree with TJ...can't beat the original
