This started out as a game I played with my sister when we were younger and we actually still participate. To my delight, my friends have also picked up on the game. Basically, you use movie quotes or descriptions of movie situations to let people know how you’re feeling. Let’s try one:

“That was very interesting music Marty.”

This is from Back to the Future when Lorraine meets Marty after he plays some electric guitar. She’s being polite, but it’s clear she found his music a bit odd. My sister and I use this when we’re trying to be polite about something that we’re not too keen on. Sample usage: I try drawing my sister’s portrait and I show it to her… “That was very interesting music Marty.”

Let’s try another…

“Bacon tastes guuuud…”

This is from Pulp Fiction. John Travolta’s character is digging into some breakfast at a coffee shop when he says this. The way he says guuuuud is the key here. Sample usage: To be said before or during consumption of any tasty food item, does not have to be bacon. Can also be followed up with “Pork chops tastes guuuud…”

Now here’s a variation, it’s not a movie quote per se, but a description of movie situation…

I think I was moving in bullet-time…

This refers to the Matrix movies where bullet-time was a special effect that was used to a great degree of success. Here, one might say this if they thought they were moving with a great deal of speed, but at the same time, retaining great clarity and vision of the situation, eg. during a dodge ball game.

Ok, that one was really easy, but let’s try another one and this time, you try to figure out the movie and the context…

I’m about ready to chop my father’s hand off…

This one isn’t a direct movie quote, but certainly refers to a situation in a movie. If you can, name the movie and the general emotion one might be feeling if they were saying this.


Star Wars fans are an active group of people. Some of them express their love of the SW universe by collecting toys, others make what are called fan films. These are home-made movies that attempt to explore an aspect of the movies that hasn’t been seen before. Fan films are usually share three common things:

1. Horrible visual and sound effects

2. Cheezy dialogue and acting

3. An impression that the budget was around $0.05

A while back I discovered a fan film that had none of the three things above. Quite simply, it is the most impressive home made Star Wars film I’ve ever seen. It was made primarily by a gentleman of the name Ryan Wieber. I believe he was only a teenager at the time of filming. His visual effects work eventually got himself a job at LucasArts. The fight choreography is excellent, but what really stands out are the visual and sound effects. It’s amazing what a lot of talent and some hardware/software can do for you.

Wieber’s site can be found here. The link to the film is here. Get the large version of the movie if you can.


“The answer is… A-Rod.”

“And the question Paul?”

“The question is: what is the difference between a-man and a-woman?.


I have not bought groceries for over a week. This is not a good thing. I’m hungry right now. We had some awesome fried chicken and coleslaw for dinner tonight. I wish I had more of it.

There’s the vending machine, but I’m sick of chips and chocolate bars right now. You know what I wish they put in vending machines? Cans of soup. I’d put in $3 worth of quarters for a can of Campbell’s Chunky Soup, preferably chicken noodle. I’d crumble a bunch of saltines that I have into the soup. Damn, that’s good eating!

Aw crap, this looks good too. Ok, I’m going to post this and do some rummaging.
