I'll just say it. I am a fan of Keanu Reeves. I think the guy gets a bad rap quite undeservedly. He's been in the business for many years and has always been pretty solid in my opinion. Sure, you couold accuse his acting style as being wooden, emotionless, vacant. And maybe you've got something there. But I think he makes it work.

Last night, just running down the list of awesome films he's been in: The Matrix, Point Break, The Devil's Advocate, Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure, Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey (someone said that, right?!), Speed, Bram Stoker's Dracula, Constantine, and the list goes on. It just goes to show how long he has been ingrained in our pop culture. Giving us great characters, one after another. In the past ten years or so he's done more independent movies that are pretty great too, Thumbsucker, Street Kings, A Scanner Darkly, and 47 Ronin are all worthwhile. This Lebanese born badass that's half English/half Hawaiian-American deserves your respect.

His film career speaks for itself, but he's also overcome dyslexia and dropping out of high school. Sure, everyone laughs at the Sad Keanu meme. But motherfucker has had some heavy shit happen in his life. His father was absent by the time he was three, later in life he and his girlfriend had a stillborn child, and shortly after their breakup had ensued she died in a horrific car crash. And still he gives so much to others. He's donated much of his money to charities including PETA (I'll give him a pass on that, since they're a bit crazy these days.), the SickKids Foundation, Stand Up To Cancer, and many others, as well as spending $5 mil.+ on helping hi sister with her leukemia treatments. It's also storied that he threw the creative and tech crew for the Matrix sequels a major portion of his back-end deal money. Totaling around $75 mil., which meant about $1mil per crew member. What. A. Guy.

So if Keanu ever released a song parody of Taylor Swift (with his rock band Dogstar), I'd listen to it. If he took inspiration from his role in The Replacements and joined a football team, say the Minnesota Vikings or Seattle Seahawks or Chicago Bears, I'd root for him. If he documented canoeing the Colorado River all the way to where it dumps into the Gulf of California, I'd track it. If he ever tried his hand at opera, I'd, uh, well I might pass on that. But if he ever tried to sell me phone service, I'd subscribe. The man is awesome. And I hope to meet him at Fantastic Fest.

Well hello Highballers. How’re you? Where were all our other friends last night? Running a Maze or some bullshit? Just know those missing put John in a crabby mood. That and getting cropdusted really set us both off. Don’t not be there next week, okay? And take some Gas-X or somethin’. Anyways, we still had a grand ol’ time at quiz and we all, myself included, got to play the fun new hit game, MALTINS, afterwards. My table was pretty spectacular at it. And I almost won, so of course I like it. But the quiz, the quiz is the thing.

We started out with Sports, which is rather unusual for us. But it was a dummy sports round, so there was that. Next, Round Two was exactly what it sounded like, i.e. an Onomatopoeia Round. And since GWD didn’t punish you by including the Black Eyed Peas classic “Boom Boom Pow” in their playlist I just had to pump it myself after the round. You’re welcome. In the third round we learned how JWS plans to remarry after his spouse dies only to take his life shortly thereafter. At least that slight breeze will have given him sexual satisfaction prior to that. Round Four celebrated the reason I know we were all there drinking in merriment, the 50th Anniversary of the Wilderness Preservation Act! Tree Party!

Round Five gave us some bright outfits and some bright answers! Great scores for almost everyone. But, I’m pretty sure Solomon Northrup never wore anything that flashy in 12 Years A Slave. And also wasn’t played by Jamie Foxx. Round Six was for all you wieners out there, and you guys really know your sausages. The Seventh Round featured that great YouTube series, Honest Trailers, but actually had mostly good movies in the mix. Who says you can’t mock great things? And finally we had lengthy state names, award show hosts, and got our m&m’s and skittles mixed together. That’s one of the worst things you can do to a candy bowl.

Thanks again for quizzing and MALTINSing with us, we loved seeing you. Come back for more next week won’t ya? And go see my movie.

Howdy Highball! Good to see y'all again, and another wonderful turn out. John kept saying that was great even though we didn't have a YouTube celeb in tow, and to that I say, WE are the YouTube stars John. Lest ye foreget this lil gem! Over 4K views, John. 4K. Oh yea, where's our camera prize? But I digress. You guys were awesome, especially the dude that said I was funnier than JWS. I like that guy (2nd place team member...). The quiz was full of many varied things, and these are butt some of them.

Round One was pretty much the only reason I joined twitter; to accost celebrities. Only a handful have blocked me at this point! Round Two had places where animals live somewhere in the answer. Little Lion Men aren't quite the best home to be honest. Some teams were confused with what habitat was listed in the answer “Regulate – Warren G feat. Nate Dogg”. It turns out a warren is where rabbits live. I did not know that. Next we learned of all the funny adventures monkeys (PRIMATES) have gotten into and the synopsis for the next Matt LeBlanc movie. Fourthly, we talked about dogs by not talking about dogs, then blasted off with Forrest Gump in space for Round Five.

Round Six was a fun and challenging round of coffee combos. “MoKanye.” You're cute. “Keurig Master.” Not quite. “HighnesSwiss Miss.” Oh come on! We'll mash up a lil' bit more than one letter on our Before And After Rounds, believe. Round Seven featured the shows within shows, and sometimes they were the best part of the real show. Sometimes both real and fake shows weren't so hot. Finally we wrapped it up talking about horny (helmeted) NFL teams, barely anyone knowing Japan's main islands, and Aladdin wishing for a bigger dick.

Thanks again for playing with us and good job on the bonus movie game, but Ubiquitous is still not a movie! Come back again next week, we'll have a laugh!
