Ted Nugent On the French


Ted Nugent, a heavy metal guitar legend and devoted (bow) hunter, was being interviewed by a French journalist. Eventually, the conversation turned to his love of outdoor pursuits. The journalist asked,
"What do you think the last thought is in the head of a deer before you shoot it? Is it, "Are you my friend?" or maybe "Are you the one who killed my brother?" Nugent replied, "They aren't capable of that kind of thinking. All they care about is, What am I going to eat next? Who am I going to screw next? and, Can I run fast enough to get away? They are very much like the French in that."

A quick Google search revealed that, according to Snopes.com, he made this comment in a May 2006 interview conducted not by a French journalist but by British journalist Robert Chalmers for The Independent on Sunday, the expanded Sunday version of the UK newspaper The Independent:

"What do these deer think when they see you coming?" I ask him. "Here comes the nice guy who puts out our dinner? Or, there's the man that shot my brother?" "I don't think they're capable of either of those thoughts, you Limey asshole. They're only interested in three things: the best place to eat, having sex and how quickly they can run away. Much like the French."

Trent Joins MyLot for Fun and Money

I don't remember how I learned about it, but I've been posting discussions and comments on MyLot for the past few days and it's pretty fun, addictive even. They pay you a few pennies for involving yourself, which is also intriguing. If you want to learn more, give it a try: it costs nothing, it's fun if you like to discuss an infinitely wide range of topics online, and in fact it's possible to make a bit of pocket change. Click here to check it out. I'll also leave a permanent link on the sidebar.

For those of you who want to hallucinate without taking drugs, I thought I'd share a video I received from a friend.

Stop Whining You Ninny - Watch This

I spent a couple hours writing an article as long as a mini-novel for my other blog, Buffalo Bill's Blog, grumbling about the project to put Mickey in Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show with me and explaining the difficulty I had making the decision to accept taking photos with Mickey today. This morning I got the following video link in my email box and it made me embarrassed I whined so much. His name is Nick Vujicic and he's pretty cool. Just click on the link below to watch the video:

Are You Going To Finish Strong?
Awesome video! If you watch only one video today make sure it is this one! Nick Vujicic has no limbs but he leads an incredible life!

Read the full article.

Trent "Buffalo Bill" Vance Creates New Blog!

I've created a new blog focused exclusively on The Wild West Show.

All articles posted so far on The Casual Reporter have been copied to a new blog entitled, "Buffalo Bill's Blog." Future articles I write relating to Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show (La Legende de Buffalo Bill), Disney Village, Disneyland Paris France, will be published on the more appropriately titled "Buffalo Bill's Blog."

The Casual Reporter will focus on news and entertainment not directly related to the Wild West Show, such as Joke of the Day, Iraqi Throws Shoes at Bush, and the Armistice Day video. So you'll want to be sure you keep reading The Casual Reporter, but to receive future Wild West Show news and entertainment you'll probably also want to subscribe to Buffalo Bill's Blog. You can do so from the blog itself. I'll keep a permanent link between blogs on each blog so you can always click between them.
