I had a surprise visit from Jack Maxwell Buren & Brent Coleman Meador yesterday! Brent brought a copy of GRAN TORINO and we made Jack watch it cause he was sure that it would be god awful... but I am pretty sure he ended up loving it. He even said "I can not wait to get home and show this to Ryan!" what a funny movie! what funny guys! I've known B. Meador for almost 15 years! it's so different when talking with these buddies, & in the way we relate, it's almost like it has nothing has changed... which is super special. Maybe it's similar senses of humor? I don't know. Here they are hangin' tough with our yard dude... who I think Jack was actually frightened by.
I think this trailer looks kinda cheesy, but the concept for this movie is really great.
DJ-in' at Sage's on Rogers was a lot of fun & Cole Doig's family & Mykey Arthrell's family were both there too! Sage made me delicious breakfast scramble & a chicken taco for lunch that was super gourmet. If I do it again I'll have to install some speakers around the ceiling though. Afterwards, I got pretty sick on Saturday and didn't really do much.
There are way too many salad greens at my house right now! I think a team lunch at work is in order!
Also, be on the lookout for a...
DJ DOG DAZE / DJ CAT FANCY BBQ PARTY in NE PDX, OR SUMMER 2009!!! (there will be an animated gif)
oh, tonight at Northern will be Full Red, XMAS, & Thee Oh Sees!
written by Ernest Hemingway, screenplay by William Faulkner, starring Bogart & Bacall (her first film!)... how can you go wrong? I liked this movie 2nd best in the Bogart/Bacall series, right behind THE BIG SLEEP.
what a fun horror movie! the cinematography was really beautiful and the violence was so campy! thanks for the rec. Shawn Parke!
THE LONG GOODBYE by Robert Altman starring Elliot Gould
not only is it a very funny and stylistic detective movie... it was the last screenplay written by Leigh Brackett... who was responsible for the writing the screenplay for THE BIG SLEEP, alongside William Faulkner. This is also Arnold Schwarzenegger's first on screen appearance, and in the 5 min. scene he is in, gets undressed but never says a word.
The best part of the movie is how much Marlowe loves his cat, and what he does to get revenge for his feline.
it's never bad having a personal DJ at your office... esp. when it's DJ NAME NAMES!
I.F.S. played all his new 45's he picked up on tour, and some extra ones he brought along for the recording sessions for inspiration. Every tune (mostly soul) was totally unheard of and totally golden.
Dick Grayson: "What's so important about Chopin?" Bruce Wayne: "All music is important, Dick. It's the universal language. One of our best hopes for the eventual realization of the brotherhood of man." Dick Grayson: "Gosh Bruce, yes, you're right. I'll practice harder from now on."
Robin: "You can't get away from Batman that easy!" Batman: "Easily." Robin: "Easily." Batman: "Good grammar is essential, Robin." Robin: "Thank you." Batman: "You're welcome."
Batman: "Better put 5 cents in the meter." Robin: "No policeman's going to give the Batmobile a ticket." Batman: "This money goes to building better roads. We all must do our part."
Robin: "Holy molars! Am I ever glad I take good care of my teeth!" Batman: "True. You owe your life to dental hygiene."
Bruce: "Yes, Dick, your bird calls are close to perfect. If more people practiced them, someday we might have a chance for real communication with our feathered friends." Dick: "In that case I think I'll polish up my ruby-crowned kinglet and my rose-breasted yellow-tailed grouse-beak calls."
Dick: "Sorry, I'm not interested in dance lessons." Bruce: "Wait a minute, Dick. The junior prom's coming up, isn't it?" Dick: "Yes, but..." Bruce: "Well, we don't want you to be a wallflower, do we? Dancing is an integral part of every young man's education." Dick: "Gosh Bruce, you're right."
Robin: "I guess you can never trust a woman." Batman: "You've made a hasty generalization, Robin. It's a bad habit to get into."
Robin: "That's an impossible shot, Batman." Batman: "That's a negative attitude, Robin."
Dick: "Gosh, Economics is sure a dull subject." Bruce: "Oh, you must be jesting, Dick. Economics dull? The glamour, the romance of commerce... Hmm. It's the very lifeblood of our country's society."
Robin: "Where'd you get a live fish, Batman?" Batman: "The true crimefighter always carries everything he needs in his utility belt, Robin."
Robin: "Batman, maybe I should stay home tonight. Homework, you know." Batman: "I think you should acquire a taste for opera, Robin, as one does for poetry and olives."
Robin: "Gosh, Batman, this camel grass juice is great." Batman: "Beware of strong stimulants, Robin."
Batman: "Go back outside and calm the flower children." Robin: "They'll mob me!" Batman: "Groovy."
Catwoman: "Let noone say that Catwoman is not the best-dressed woman in the world." Batman: "There are no fashion shows where you're going, Catwoman." Robin: "And how could a feline feloness like you also be a fashion model?" Batman: "Ah-ah. Give credit where credit is due, Robin. She may be evil, but she is attractive. You'll know more about that in a couple of years."
Batman: "Nobody wants war." Robin: "Gee, Batman. Belgravia's such a small country. We'd beat them in a few hours." Batman: "Yes, and then we'd have to support them for years."
Batman: "What took you so long, Batgirl?" Batgirl: "Rush hour traffic, plus all the lights were against me. And you wouldn't want me to speed, would you?" Robin: "Your good driving habits almost cost us our lives!" Batman: "Rules are rules, Robin. But you do have a point."
Robin: "Gosh, if I could just figure out that riddle. Why can't I get it?" Batman: "Maybe your mind's on that cute little teenager who waved to you on the way across town, eh?" Robin: "Awww, come on, Batman."
Dick: "Awww, heck! What's the use of learning French anyway?" Bruce: "Dick, I'm surprised at you! Language is the key to world peace. If we all spoke each other's tongues, perhaps the scourge of war would be ended forever." Dick: "Gosh, Bruce, yes. I'll get these darn verbs if they kill me!"
Dick: "Wow! The rings of Saturn! This is sure some fun, Bruce." Bruce: "Astronomy is more than mere fun, Dick." Dick: "It is?" Bruce: "Yes, it helps give us a sense of proportion. Reminds us how little we are, really. People tend to forget that sometimes." Dick: "Gosh yes, that's right. I'll bet I see those rings a little differently this time!"
Dick: "Gosh, botany is tough. I'll never learn to recognize all these trees!" Bruce: "Come come, Dick. Pine. Elm. Hickory, chestnut, maple. Part of our heritage is the lure of living things, the storybook of nature." Dick: "That's true, Bruce. I'll learn to read that book of nature yet!"
Batman: "Robin, you haven't fastened your safety bat-belt." Robin: "We're only going a couple of blocks." Batman: "It won't be long until you are old enough to get a driver's license, Robin, and you'll be able to drive the Batmobile and other vehicles. Remember, motorist safety." Robin: "Gosh, Batman, when you put it that way.."
Dick Grayson: "I thought Lima was the capital of Equador." Bruce Wayne: "As you can see, I was right. It's the capital of Peru." Aunt Harriet: "Oh, I just love this game of capitals. It's just so educational!" Bruce: "Not only that, if we don't know all about our friends to the south, how can we can carry out our good neighbor policy?"
Bruce: "Most Americans don't realize what we owe to the ancient Incas. Very few appreciate they gave us the white potato and many varieties of Indian corn." Dick: "Now whenever I eat mashed potatos, I for one will think of the Incas."
I wish Batman was a teacher at Evergreen... I would be in every program.
