Yes, for all of you who were pleasantly surprised to see punk rock front man, Henry Rolling join, and then leave, the cast of Sons of Anarchy, there is a new kid in town.  Yup, Mr. Danny Trejlo is signing himself up.

Couldn’t say how long Trejo will be a part of the cast, but know that Season 4 of Sons of Anarchy is going to feature this wild man.  And I know it is just my humble opinion, but Danny is an infinitely better actor (sorry Henry).  In fact, Trejo is the primary reason I have enjoyed Robert Rodriguez films like From Dusk to Dawn, Desperado, and Machete as much as I have, and possibly why I forgave him for that whole Spy Kids thing.  And if you have ever seen one of those films, but don’t recognize the name Danny Trejo, just think of the baddest ass, meanest, Mexican Mother F*^cker you can imagine and that would be him.  Pretty intimidating.

Trejo is set to portray former Mexican military commando Romero ‘Romeo’ Parada, who finds himself a new friend in SAMCRO. We do know that he will have a multi-episode stint, but don’t know exactly how long it will last.  I hope he gets at least as much screen time as Rollins did.

Anyway, we all wait with baited breath for the new season to begin.  September will be here before you know it… I mean, we have the River Run and Myrtle Beach going on now (don’t ask me how I feel about Myrtle Beach… you can search it in the little field at the top right of this page), we have the Big Mountain Run, the All Harley Memorial Day Blowout in Gulfport, the ROT Rally in Texas, Sturgis, and a bunch of local things to keep us busy while we wait.

We did it, we did it, we did, yah, we did it… no, I am not just singing that annoying lyric from Dora the Explorer for nothing (for a change… you ever get a tune in your head while you are on the open road?  You ever get one after having kids??  Sheesh, it can make a long ride maddening!  But I digress).

No, we did it in the sense that the gang in Hollywood was finally awarded a Golden Globe for the Sons of Anarchy.  Specifically, Katey Sagal won Best Actress in a Drama.  This is a huge win after the show went without nominations in years past… a move that ticked a lot of us off.

Like I once said, Sons of Anarchy was the show I wanted so badly to hate but so totally got into.  I can’t help it, I am a sucker for just about anything bike related on the tube, in the movies, books, music, whatever… But Sagal’s husband, Kurt Sutter, really has his shit together in this little ditty of a series.  I know it has been renewed for a fourth season and I hope to see it go on for many more.  It has been by far the most successful show that FX has put out and the audience keeps growing.

So, congratulations to Katey, Kurt, and the entire SoA cast and crew… I am sure there will be more awards for all of you in the future.

Who says you can’t get what you want by holding a gun to a baby’s head?

Sons of Anarchy Will Return

Just an FYI for all you fans of the Sons… Kurt Sutter has signed on to write two more seasons of the show… so it looks like there will be a third, and most likely, a fourth season.  Both should run 13 episodes each with season 3 starting in September of 2010 (which is a hell of a long way away, if you ask me).  Statistics say that viewership was up about 66% over the first season, so the series has really exploded.  Can’t wait for the next year’s shows.  As many of you know, and may share in sentiment, I really did not want to like this show at first.  I was skeptical at best, and now I can not get enough!  Season 2 was a big improvement over season 1 and I expect it to just get better.  Oh, and thanks to Rollins for joining us this year.  I actually think his acting has improved with age.

And as a quick aside, I have heard through the grapevine that the International Motorcycle Show has a Sons of Anarchy Dyna on display with a list of parts so that the enthusiast can customize his own.  I also hear there was a line to sit on the thing.  Whew, maybe we will get the FXRs back!

Last night I was getting my weekly fix of the hit tv show, Sons of Anarchy, when I noticed that ol’ Mr. Rollins had what might be considered one of his best speaking parts ever in a television or movie.  Henry, as many of you know, was the front man for the punk rock band Black Flag before heading out on his own solo ventures… which later turned into spoken word performances, which bordered on stand up comedy, which later turned into spots on tv, his own show on MTV, and a few small rolls in films.

So, this was all in the back of my mind when I came across an old interview with Henry by some young kid who obviously didn’t really know what he was doing, which led me to check out a few other videos… here are three…

1st is a snippet of the interview with that poor kid

2nd is a bit of a spoken word piece about dating

3rd is a short video of two Black Flag songs

aw heck… just for fun I will throw in a fourth video of Henry hitting back (I have met Rollins man times and he is a very calm person… but when he is pushed, he will push back.  Notice that he lets this guy smack at him a while before he finally retaliates).
