Jeremy Clarkson

Noteworthy

  • Top Gear – As part of the Top Gear Trinity he and May and Hammond were amazing and they contributed to one of the most watched and most downloaded shows on TV. The fact that they were not sponsored by a car company meant that they could say what they wanted without fear of sponsorships being pulled. Add to that the challenges and you have one of the best shows ever on TV.
  • The Grand Tour – After Clarkson got sacked from Top Gear, the Trinity started an Amazon original called The Grand Tour. Much like Top Gear, they look at cars and they have outlandish challenges but unlike Top Gear, they are not connected tot he BBC and can literally do whatever they want.
  • The Toy-Boat-A – This is not a show. This was the amphibious car that Clarkson brought to two of their challenges. A Toyota truck with an outboard motor. It is bad ass.

I like to be loved by my children, and I quite like the ‘Guardian’ hating me. I like it when I read they want me to die painfully. Then I think I’ve really got under their skin. It’s like annoying a teacher. Once they’ve shown signs of weakness, you really can go for them.

Vince Vaughn

Vince Vaughn Born March 28, 1970   Vince Vaughn is fantastic. I love him in every role that I see him in. And, as you may have heard one more than one of our podcasts - I want him to be in every movie. And if he can't have a speaking role just have him walk...

Plantains- The Other Starch of the Americas

I’ve been a pretty fortunate gringo as I am blessed with three families, one by blood and two by adoption of sorts.  After I moved to DC in the early 2000s not knowing a person in the world I quickly made two friends, one Colombian and the other Cuban; both obviously...
