“most used” movie quotes

November 13th, 2007 . by maria

So, what are your “most used” movie quotes? The ones that immediately come to mind for me, in no particular order, are:

I’ll be back (of course) – Terminator
“We’ve got cows.” “There’s another cow.” “I think that was the same cow.” – Twister (I guess this only happens when you live with a future Storm Chaser.)
“Surely sir, you can’t be serious!” “I am serious, and don’t call me Shirley” – Airplane (well, I don’t so much quote it as think it)
“No soup for you.” Seinfeld (Ok, that’s a TV quote, but I’m sure it’s been referenced in a movie)
“Watch out for that tree” – George of the Jungle
“Kicking ass and taking names” – (what movie IS that from?)
“ET Phone home” – ET
“I like chaaaahklate milk” – Cheese, Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends (another TV quote)
Hellooo, McFly…. – Back to the Future
Anyone? Anyone? – Ferris Bueller’s Day Off
I’m sure there are others we use more frequently, both movie and TV, but those were the things that came to mind.

Can you add to my list?

Did you hear the one about Paris Hilton and the elephants?

No, it isn’t a joke…but it is pretty funny!

Finland school shooting linked to YouTube

Finland school shooting linked to YouTube

http://rss.cnn.com/~r/rss/cnn_topstories/~3/181053213/index.html

So, what kind of crappy inflamatory headline is that? Apparently, he planned the act and posted it as a warning on Youtube.

So, CCN is saying that if he had written out the warning on, say, lined school paper…then their headline would read “School shooting linked to Mead Paper Supply” ??

Not that I’ve ever had much trust in popular media, but I am seriously starting to doubt their ability to report on ANYthing without putting some type of slant on it.

invited readers only

July 18th, 2007 . by maria

I was very disappointed to learn that a blog I had been reading is now displaying “This blog is open to invited readers only”. I figured this out after clicking through the RSS, which hadn’t been working for about a week. Nice of her to explain this prior to switching off, leaving anyone who was expressly invited in the dark. I’m not a personal friend – I found her blog through a link from another blog – so, I’m not personally hurt by the exclusion. But I did enjoy reading what she wrote, and was sorry to see her go…
