"The Elwood Bandit" [Mar. 6th, 2007|04:35 pm]

[mood |amusedamused]

I was watching the news this afternoon and came across this news story (of course, I copied and pasted it to here to make it more helpful):

Man in fedora robs Mission Viejo bank

Police believe same man, dubbed 'Elwood bandit,' has hit 5 Orange County Banks since November.

The Orange County Register

MISSION VIEJO – A man dressed like one of the Blues Brothers robbed an American First Credit Union branch at gunpoint just after 9 a.m., a day after what appeared to be the same man hit a Brea bank, police said.

The man, nicknamed the "Elwood bandit" for his black fedora and shiny sunglasses, walked into the bank in the 24000 block of Alicia Parkway just after it opened and showed the teller a small black gun, sheriff's spokesman Jim Amormino said.

The man hustled two tellers into a vault and demanded that they open the drawers, but they told him they could not access them, Amormino said. A third employee walked in on the robbery and was taken back with the other two, he said. The robber settled for cleaning out a teller's drawer before shutting all employees in a closet, Amormino said.

The bandit flashed a gun at a customer as he ran from the bank.

A man matching the same description robbed the Banco Popular Monday at 220 S. State College Blvd. Monday afternoon, handing the teller a note asking for money.

The Elwood bandit is suspected of robbing five Orange County banks since November.

He is described as a black man, 20 to 40 years old, 5 feet 8 inches tall, and about 200 pounds. Along with the hat and sunglasses, he wears dress shirts and ties.


See what one can discover while not doing homework/economics project?  (Which I shall now go and do.)

O, random bursts of community activity. XD Most excellent, aheh. ANYWAY. Icons of the animation, textish, and base sort below. Credit not required, especially not for general base-deals. Most of the pictures used were screencaps I made, but did snatch a couple of picture for some, and don't know where from, so... bad on me? Anyway, here goes.

Bow bow bowww...Collapse )

Hey everyone, I of course haven't interesting to contribute until I decide to make another batch of bases (and possibly icons)later on. Which I shall post if anyone's interested in them that is. I'm oftentime a lurker to most communities I join, although this one I feel to be a possible exception. Nice to meet you all!

Right, since I haven't actually posted anything, figured I'd add a bit. Over the summer, my sister and I, along with some friends and our brother, decided to have Blues Brothers day at the zoo. Much, er, zaniness ensued, and I figuahs what the hell... Have some pictures.

Note that purpose of this was not so much to reproduce the look exactly (which would, given our genders and lack of time/money/what have you) as to have Blues Brothers at the zoo. Because it just SOUNDED like fun.

Further in and further, er, fun, non?Collapse )

We also had Blues Brothers day at band camp, which was also rather special. XD

Shooooooooo there you are. *shrug*

Sup kidz,

This community is far too quiet. I hope to change this.


However I don't have anything interesting to post. Obviously I'm a huge BB fan, I live and was raised in Illinois (downstate, UofI area- but most of my relatives are upstate), and I'm pretty sure watching the Blues Brothers at least 500 times is a prerequisite for citizenship of this fine part of the heartland. I love it. I want to spread the joy.

So uh ... what's crackin'?

"We're on a mission from God." [Oct. 15th, 2006|12:11 pm]

So I went to church this morning (don't worry, this is Blues Brothers related!) and the pastor was giving the sermon and I was staring off into space when suddenly he started talking about the Blues Brothers movie.  I had no idea how the Blues Brothers fit into the sermon because for the rest of the sermon I was thinking, "Wow, my pastor just talked about the Blues Brothers!"

Let me say, that really woke me up this morning.

[music |Back in Time--Huey Lewis and the News]

Last month, around the end of July, I grew insanely obsessed with The Blues Brothers (I had just watched the entire movie the first time through), so I thought I'd join this community filled of other slightly obsessed fans of the Blues Brothers.  So hi--I'm new.

I thought I'd make my welcome a warm one by sharing some pictures and some icons that I made.
