What The Wise Guise is meant to be is a place for us to get together and discuss the things we love and are passionate about, in a hopefully entertaining way. Think of it as a virtual MacLaren’s Pub, The Max, or Monk’s Café. We each love writing. We each have a propensity to become addicted to varied corners of culture. So we figured… why not join forces?! Think Super 8, where Spielberg, Abrams, Coach Eric Taylor, and the sassiest adolescents since The Sandlot joined forces. We don’t want to create another website full of people who think they have all the answers about everything from comprehensive tax reform and college football to TV quality and Kardashian cup sizes (the latter two not always being mutually exclusive). We’re not the Huffington Post. The Wise Guise is merely a place for us to post some opinions and observations, while collecting your feedback. The name “The Wise Guise” derives from the idea that so many bloggers feel the need to assert their self proclaimed expertise. They try to give the appearance of wisdom when, more often than not, they just use controversy to get their name out there. We have no “unnamed” sources and again, we don’t claim to be experts. We come more from the line of people who wish they were experts but have real jobs. Well, some of us have real jobs… sometimes. You can also follow us on Twitter @TheWiseGuise!

Sandlot Entertainment Inspirations: Summer with The Sandlot

1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10.

I own approximately eight movies. Two of them are Baz Luhrmann films that I will speak of another time. Two are suspense thrillers. Two are 90s’ teen flicks. One is Shawshank Redemption. And the last, my dearies, is The Sandlot. Also known as the best movie ever made in the world.

  1.  Ladies, this summer channel your inner Wendy Peffercorn with this polka-dotted one-piece.
  2.  I still think little what’s his name was so hot in the Sandlot. His LA Dodgers cap never left that shock of dark hair, and in my dreams, it’s still there.
  3.  Don’t get a mastiff. But at least think about a artistic rendition by Susane E. Jones. No way this pic would have scared Scotty Smalls. (Who by the way, was later in Black Hawk Down… I always knew he was a badass.)
  4.  This is the perfect summer T for the fellas. Ya, ya. You’ve gotta get it.
  5.  Don’t be an L-7 weenie. Getchoself that pair of PF Flyers you’ve always wanted.
  6.  Be prepared for summer campouts FOR-EV-ER with this bedroll.
  7.  East Nashville artist Chris Susi is bring back baseball’s greatest with his sketches. Get one of his 18×24 ball-point masterpieces in person at Billy Reid’s June 30th Summer Classics event.
  8.  Erector Sets. Enough said.
  9.  You know you want some more. Check out these two recipes for a twist on a classic.
  10.  Finally, a Sandlot roundup wouldn’t be complete without an updated pair of specs in honor of dear Squints Palledorous.The Sandlot 1024x684 Entertainment Inspirations: Summer with The Sandlot

There it is my friends. And I’ll leave you with just a few quotes to encourage you to go grab some friends and watch the greatest movie of all time, pronto.

The Babe: “Remember kid, there’s heroes and there’s legends. Heroes get remembered but legends never die, follow your heart kid, and you’ll never go wrong.”

Ham Porter: “Is that your sister out there in left field, naked? She’s naked?”

Older Scotty Smalls: Michael Squints Palledorous walked a little taller that day. And we had to tip our hats to him. He was lucky she hadn’t beat the *crap* out of him. We wouldn’t have blamed her. What he’d done was sneaky, rotten, and low… and cool.

And finally… the best quote of the movie, from my teenage life long heartthrob, Benny “the jet” Rodriguez.

Benny Rodriguez: Anyone who wants to be a can’t-hack-it pantywaist who wears their mama’s bra, raise your hand.

Until next time,
