The Official Army Headquarters Base of the Ace of Spades HQ Has Been Selected

After long minutes of contemplation, the III Corps Headquarters located in Fort Hood, Texas, has been chosen as the Official Army Headquarters of the Ace of Spades HQ blog.

The evidence justifying the selection of this base is unassailable and none dare stand before it:


Searching on III Corps, I also found reference to some program to rehabilitate low-level offenders (drunk drivers, etc.) in the Army into more law-abiding soldiers located at the base. That only recommends it more.

For those who can't view Twitter, 1, congrats, it's a timesuck that reduces life expectancy, and 2, here are the pictures.

Below is Frank Frazetta's immortal pulp masterpiece "Death Dealer," painted, they say, in 1973. This picture represents for men of a certain age (nearly 29) all that is good and desirous in life.

This is a statue of the III Corps' base mascot, which they call "Phantom Warrior."

That mascot is so badass he tells Batman "Suck my dick" and Batman says "Maximum eye contact, or no eye contact? Sir?"

96 I saw Molly Hatchet in 1994 at a small club. At this point Danny Joe Brown was the only original left in the band. He was hammered. I remember once between songs he yelled back to the bar for somebody to send some Jim Beam up to the stage. During an extended guitar solo he walked to the back of the stage and started leaning his whole body against a stack of amps with his back to the audience. I didn't think he would make it through the show, but he did.

Posted by: Mark1971 at February 09, 2017 02:58 PM (gdnq1)

97 So, to make this clear for us non-Twitter idiots:

At Ft. Hood, there is actually a physical bronze statue of Frank Frazetta's famous 1973 painting "Death Dealer," and that this statue is regarded as some kind of unofficial "mascot" for something called "Phantom Warriors"???

True?

Further explanation? I'm still a bit confused as to the facts and why they are significant.

202 The Allmans were more than a rock band, although they helped jump start Southern Rock, as they worked in a purer blues and jazz.

When they were young, Duane was sick and Gregg came by with a medicine bottle. By the time Gregg came back Duane had taught himself how to play slide guitar.

Hearing Wilson Pickett's cover of Hey Jude over in England, Eric Clapton went on a mission to find the guy who did the outro guitar lead. He expected to find an old black guy.

I've told this before:
I was in a friend's wedding once. Beautiful day, outdoor ceremony at a lovely church in Charlotte.
Across this huge expanse of lawn, a cellist & classical guitarist were setting up near the "altar" while the other guys in penguin suits and I were nipping fine bourbon out of our flasks.

From about 200 ft away, I yelled "FREEBIRD!" ,much to others' chagrin.
Then, the duo broke out into an amazing version that nobody in attendance will ever forget.
It was quite nice, but still funny as hell.

215 OT: might have missed it in earlier threads, but I absolutely love Teh Donald trashing McCain and esp. Blumenthal, personally and directly, and esp. like the trash talk about Blumenthal's despicable mendacity.


That Blumenthal can show his face, much less have high public office, after his vile and low-grade dishonesty was so spectacularly revealed, speaks to the degradation of Dem voters and the civic culture.


Hope the prez keeps it up - actually, hope he intensifies it quite a bit. McCain (who is dumber and more psycho than you imagine) can definitely be pushed to the point where he melts down and lashes out. Not that there's any standard any more, so such behavior won't open most closed eyes, but at this point there's value in merely the public torment of despicable dumb***ts like McCain.

Here's an amazing thing I learned about that. There was one survivor of the plane crash. (Probably the drummer, I'm not looking it up).

He was on the Howard Stern show and told the story. Plane crashes, he's alive but all messed up and in the middle of nowhere. Hikes through three miles of woods and swamps and comes upon a farm.

The farmer shot him.

We go to the rodeo every year, but we usually skip the concert at the end. When we got the tickets we didn't even know or care who this dude was. We still had some energy, or were drunk enough to stay this time, and his performance was actually kind of fun.
Did we buy any of his music though? Of course not.

But Lynyrd Skynyrd is a national icon that is internationaly known and understood. Go to Mongolia and people will know what Free Bird is and have heard of Lynyrd Skynyrd. Tom Petty has sold more albums (because he's been active longer and had more albums put out) but isn't the cultural icon that Skynyrd is. And I can't even explain why.

264 Garrett, you must be a bit younger. Tom Petty is a fine musician and songwriter (and deep down, a Byrd at heart), but Lynyrd Skynyrd took what the Allman Brothers started (in Florida and much of the South, up to and including Cincinnati - but their home base was Macon GA), wrote some politically-charged lyrics, and released an anthem called "Sweet Home Alabama" that has likely been played more times than everything Petty did, combined. When my band won the Battle of the Bands at a local high school in '75, I played lead and sang when we did "Alabama" and "Free Bird", among others. Glory days, baby.

I still have .38 Special, Skynyrd, Outlaws, and a bunch of Allman Brothers on regular rotation on the iPod. Oh, and two or three Tom Petty tunes, too.

The heavy unbalanced weight and long surface make it a good headsmans axe, not a battle axe. The object is to lift the weight and mostly just guide it to the exposed neck. The heavy weight and long cutting surface makes it more likely to get it done on one chop. A scimitar is a good multi-purpose blade and is the choice of most modern day decapitators.

The axe in the illuastration is very good as it would dissuade any but the most determined to engage, but the red eyes and helmet would accomplish the same thing even if he was carrying a wooden spoon.

398 Tom Petty IMO has quite a lot of great songs. I remember looking for details some years ago. Great band, and they're all still alive! -- looking at you Randy Rhodes.

Also, it is amazing how many great songs from the Yardbirds era people forget with the one and only Jeff Beck. 'course he's done more and more interesting things since. Next to Jimi, Jeff has guitar-fu like no other. Again, MOHO, YMMV

It goes on and on, too. SRV, Eric Johnson, Malsteen (sp), Vai, Satch....
Ummm, Keith Richards also, for different reasons.

Recently became a fan of Jessie Dayton from his song, "Daddy Was a Badass" Great lyrics and an earworm tune. Southern rock style.

His other songs are also funny, clever, and borderline naughty.

4th ID OIF Memorial:



This statue is part of the memorial at Ft Hood and was made from two
giant bronze statues of Saddam Hussein, captured in Iraq by the the 4th
Infantry Division, were melted down by an Iraqi artist to make a
memorial to their fallen comrades. The cost of the memorial was paid for
by donations from Ivy Soldiers, 4ID Association members and businesses
and citizens from Central Texas and beyond.

4th ID was there, but they didn't pull Saddam from the spider hole. My commander in Mindanao was the Squadron Commander whose team brought him out. He had also been the platoon commander for Shugart and Gordon in Mogadishu.

478 Re: Bander's question, there are a lot of one-hit wonders that I prefer another song by - an "almost-hit" or a hit that was a success in another country than the US.
Gary Numan: Are Friends Electric (more than Cars)
Chumbawamba: Amnesia (more than Tubthumping
Devo: Beautiful World (more than Whip It)
etc. etc.

One one-hit wonder that definitely stands on its own: Ram Jam's Black Betty.

1st SFOD-D was the element that got him. The Commander would later serve as Commander Joint Special Operations Task Force Philippines where I would work for him as his Intelligence Chief. He had two briefs put together, a lot of the Saddam photos including the actual photo that was given to Time magazine, and another picture of him and the two operators who pulled Saddam out giving President Bush Saddam's 9 mm pistol. 4th ID was there, but it was the Tier 1 guys who actually got him...and the famous line "President Bush sends his regards".

486 I saw Mink DeVille once as "warm-up" band to either to
Elvis Costello or Tom Petty and I enjoy their music much more
than any of the bands mentioned here -except for Allman
Bros. and (sometimes) Marshall Tucker Band. And whoever
they were opening act for? -DeVille blew them away. And I
bought some of their albums. I bought some Petty back in
those days but would never listen to them again -album rock radio burned me out on his music and his voice just gets
annoying after a while.

I read an Osprey book about the Ontos recently and discovered that the Marines made pretty extensive use of the vehicle in Vietnam. The Marines used them as anti-personnel assault guns rather than in the anti-tank role for which the Ontos had been designed.
