No Expectations babies

Our new BFFs over at Simon & Schuster, actually S&S imprint Gallery Books, has provided The Hall with 3 copies of this new release to give away. Our personal favorite review is:

Hot tub reading at its very tingliest.

So here’s how to qualify to win: Cast the movie. That’s it. Simply cast the Rolling Stones movie. You don’t even have to cast the whole thing. If your casting suggestion for just one of the roles is deemed among the 3 “best for that particular role,” you win.

The following 10 roles need to be cast. You can cast for one or all of them AND we have a TBD category. That is an 11th role to be cast that is as-of-yet undetermined. Example: Let’s say we were casting The Beatles movie and had 5 roles: John, Paul, George, and Ringo (seemingly always listed in that order) and George Martin. If there was a TBD category of your choosing you might suggest any of the following; Brian Epstein, Linda Macartney, Yoko, Magic Alex… Then if our judges were to pick your suggestion (both role and actor) then you win.

Get it? Got it? If not, post your question and an official RTH headmaster will respond.

The 10 cast members to be cast follow the jump!

Our new best friends over at Touchstone Books (a Division of Simon & Schuster) have given us three copies of the new Freddie Mercury biography. More information about the book is below the fold. To win a brand new copy of your very own simply comment with a link to an image of a music-related personality that rocks the cop ‘stache as well as or better than the late great Freddie Mercury. It’s just that easy.


Here are some real cop ‘staches for guidance.

For what it’s worth, according to the pros over at Mustache Summer.

The Police Departments in Los Angeles and elsewhere have a Dress Code for their officers, which details how an officer is to present himself. One of the areas covered is facial hair, which is only allowed in the form of a mustache, and cannot extend below the corner of the mouth. If a police officer wants to grow whiskers, he must grow a ‘stache. That mustachio’d cop on the corner may be burning for a goatee or a Soul Patch, but departmental regulations help keep him from making a horrible mistake.

Also, to ensure complete objectivity in judging, we have enlisted a celebrity to make the calls. Our guest judge is…

“But I don’t want to go among mad people,” Alice remarked.

“Oh, you can’t help that,” said the Cat: “we’re all mad here. I’m mad. You’re mad.”

“How do you know I’m mad?” said Alice.

“You must be,” said the Cat, “or you wouldn’t have come here.”

― Lewis Carroll, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland

Quick note, apology and request from us here in The Back Office. As you all probably know RTH has an ad block in the upper right sidebar. We are, somewhat, proud members of the MOG ad network, but trust us when we say, no one is getting rich from these ads. However, they do help offset some of the cost of this labor of love. Within the last 6 months we have noticed two disturbing trends: 1. Ads that play “forced audio” that is audio automatically plays without user request and 2. Middle screen “survey” ads that lay over our content. When we first discovered these back then we ripped MOG a new-one in a vitriolic email. We stated our position firmly “These ads are not OK.”  (I know, brutal…right?) They apologized and said that we would be eliminated from any ads of this sort.

Sorry Townsfolk. My cat disappeared last week. My debit card was canceled last week as well. Coincidence? My cat is back and according to his calculations the winners of the Rush DVD are:
