Well, It's Finally Happened...

Billy Bob Thornton has officially gone totally fucking crazy and not in the drooling and babbling way. He's on the whole "serial killer with cold, calculated answers and cryptic stares" type shit that scares the bejesus out of me.

Mr. Slingblade was on the CBC show Q with Jian Ghomeshi and turned in a truly creepy performance. The appearance was to promote his band Boxmasters and apparently, BBT instructed the show's producers not to talk about his "other career," you know, the whole acting-directing-writing thing that made him famous in the first place.

So, Ghomeshi barely touches on it in the introduction, because really, "who the fuck are The Boxmasters and why would I care if I didn't know it's Bad Santa's band?" and Thornton proceeds to answer questions like a complete moron.

Eventually, they discuss his frustrations but it doesn't solve much of anything really. He leaves his bandmates to play an acoustic set for the show and the looks on their faces is priceless. You know they have to be weighing the benefits of having this jackass in the band every day.

"Well, we get some press and opportunities because we play with Billy Bob, but the guy is a total douchebag. What do we do?"

Here's what you do: find a new drummer and let The Astronaut Farmer go back to making shitty movies and getting divorced every two years.
