    For those who have never really listened to The Clash — or maybe know just “Rock the Casbah” and “Should I Stay or Should I Go” — do yourself a favor and find time to crank London Calling from beginning to end. Seriously.

    Excellent. The whole album is fantastic — really shows the range of influences. And well-designed.

    I like Jolie but she should never play someone with a physical profession. It defies belief.

    She's not your first choice to fill a lumberjack role?

    And yet they pretty much cast her as just that in her new movie. Well, a smoke jumping firefighter.

    The thought of her hiking through rugged country with 50 pounds of gear...

    I mean, I'd watch her do pretty much anything on screen. The missus is fond of her too, so it's a win-win.

    Yeah, see, she’s not my slice of turkey so watching her as a USFS firefighter just made me laugh.

    That doesn't seem like the kind of movie I would be interested in. Now if that fire was started because of the grilling of meats then maybe.

    It was meh. A couple of good scenes but mostly meh. It was cliffhanger but not as early 90s.

    Well, as someone who knows several USFS firefighters, I will take it upon myself to investigate.

    I dunno, Jolie strikes me as the kind of woman you definitely want on your side in a bar fight.

    Actresses that are much less likely to be firefighters, IMHO: Reese Witherspoon, Emma Stone, Meg Ryan, Drew Barrymore, Claire Danes, Kirsten Dunst, Liv Tyler, Cher, Selena Gomez, Salma Hayak, Halle Berry.

    Meryl Strep, of course, would be completely convincing as a firefighter. She's probably spend a month hiking with a 50lb pack of gear to get ready to play the role.

    Meryl Streep has probably fought fires.

    Oh, bar fight, absolutely! She’d break a bottle and stab and claw and bite. Got that crazy short term spurt strength. No doubt!

    Can she hump 50 pounds of gear for 10 miles in blazing heat? Zero chance. The water loss from dehydration alone would be more than she could handle. Can you imagine her swinging a 20 pound pick to dig a trench?

    No, just no. She’d fall over.

    Blueteuf likely has the much better stories here, but I've had to do this with a 60 lbs pack. Carrying a 60. The fires that we had to put out were mainly started by us(accidental) and relatively small. And an additional duty, not the main function. I lost nearly 20 lbs in six weeks eating thousands and thousands of calories a day.

    Bingo. She couldn’t handle the caloric deficit.

    Hiking is nice, backpacking is hard.

    Sounds like Mtn would Sherpa for her though.
