Friday LinkFrogging - 8/2/13
You know, the world doesn't move to the beat of just one drum.

What you might find right for you, just might not be right for others.

Sorry, I couldn't help myself.

As the pieces of this week's outing started falling into place I couldn't get the theme from Diff'rent Strokes out of my head.



So I paraphrased.

What, you may ask, does a 1970s sitcom have to do with anything going on today?

I can answer that.  Let's follow the trail shall we?

The new movie, 2 Guns, opens today.  It looks like a fun throwback action flick.  Not much plot, but lots of bullets, explosions and other gratuity.

I could never quite place the young lady in the trailers, so I turned to the always reliable IMDB.  Lo and behold, she is Paula Patton and Ms. Patton is this week's cheesecake.

Still no following?

Ms. Patton is married to Robin Thicke, son of Canadian television personality, Alan Thicke, who is the wrote the theme above with Robin's mom, the former soap star, Gloria Loring.

They also wrote this gem.



How those two creators and/or creations can somehow spawn a man capable of winning Ms. Patton and putting out a jam like this...



Is rather like asking how this...



And this...



Get you to this...



The intwinations are there.  You just have to follow them to some dark corners of our collective pop culture past.

Let's hit the links.
