NOTE: The powers that be informed me that I should clarify why these pieces have been dropping on the weekly. There’s been little explanation and some folks have been badgering Ethan as to why he’s posting all of this cool stuff with no context.

Think of this as a place where you can talk about whatever the heck you want. I’m bored, you’re bored, we’re all bored. The NBA doesn’t get interesting until Christmas, and The Royal Rumble isn’t until the end of next month. Let me rant and rave about good and bad things, and then have at it. 22 and 78, this is Lockedout Landing.

Shameless Plug

Your boy will be appearing at the Tacoma Dome for OLD SCHOOL NIGHT. This is going to be star studded. Busta Rhymes, DMX, Method Man and Redman, E-40, Too $hort, and more. This is basically a reunion show for alumni of the Limp Bizkit “Rollin’ (Urban Assault Vehicle)” track and I couldn’t be happier. I do not care for them calling it old school, but age comes for all of us. I will also be going to scope out the best seats for when Monster Jam comes to the Tacoma Dome in January.


That new Fast and Furious trailer dropped and I must say it looked mighty fine. There’s a submarine in it and Charlize Theron looks like she just got back from a vacation at Sandals. It looks like the plot line to this one features Vin Diesel’s character turning his back on his family. This is shocking. To give you context about 85% of Vin Diesel’s 150 words per movie are about how important his family is to him. That and he lives life a quarter mile at a time.

All your favorites are back, The Rock, Tyrese, Michelle Rodriguez, Ludacris, fast cars, checkered flags, loud noises, you bet. I can’t think of a better way to start my summer. In April.


Talking about your top five albums of the year is like talking about your fantasy team. Nobody cares. That said, in no order, because rankings are for committal suckers, I dug the following this year-

  • Modern Baseball - Holy Ghost
  • Schoolboy Q - Blank Face LP
  • PUP - The Dream is Over
  • Gucci Mane - Everybody Looking

I’ll leave it at that, there were other good ones, but I am slowly becoming more and more of a podcast guy. It’s an epidemic.


Nathan Karns will be a fine #5 starter if he’s healthy.

Bonnie Raitt it up

  • Do you have a TV show that you revisit and binge watch every year? Which show is it?
  • Anybody have TSA Precheck? Is it worth it?
  • I have a friend that has only seen two Star Wars movies in his life. Should he bother watching this new one?
  • Best hotel resort to stay in Las Vegas?
  • When the NFL dissolves in 10-15 years, what sport takes over as “America’s Game?”
  • Is it weird to go to the movies on Christmas Day?

You all are wonderful and I appreciate your time. Questions, comments, and concerns can be directed to my secretary, @EthanNovak
