killer would-be sample

"Tell me, Mr. does it feel, getting paid for it? How does it feel to sit back and hire your killin', with the law's arms around you? How does it feel to be so god damn right?"
- Robert Ryan as Deke Thornton, The Wild Bunch, 1969

props to my dad

I don't know how he knew...maybe a lucky guess...but he never believed tomatoes were behind the salmonella outbreak. He thought it was jalapeno all along. I think my dad just dislikes jalapeno.

Sucks that he's right though...I use jalapeno in a lot of cooking (serrano too!) and can't find either of these peppers at my grocer now. It's not as annoying as the spinach-pull was a year or so back...I use that quite a bit too!

Progressive Nation 2008!

That was an amazing show! I was dancing, fist-pumping, and singing throughout! Opeth was mindblowingly awesome, and Dream Theater rocked the house with all sorts of extended jams, dueling solos, and their usual psychedelic vidscreen. Phenomenal!

Only sad thing is we missed 3. Hopefully we'll catch them on a smaller US tour soon.

* Master's Apprentices (from Deliverance)
* The Baying of the Hounds (from Ghost Reveries)

movie meme: have you seen these?

Below are some quotes. More than one quote per movie. Figure out the movies, and match those to the quotes. Afterwards, roll your own.

1) Save my soul...and your own lives!

2) Describe in single words: only the good things that come into your mind about your mother.

3) At this moment, this is me at my most masochistic.

4) What if Ling Ling kept the cash and returned the wallet? That has nothing to do with either fear or love!

5) We just cut up our girlfriend with a chainsaw...does that sound "fine?"

6) Why are you wearing that stupid man suit?

7) Quite an experience to live in fear, isn't it? That's what it means to be a slave.

8) Do you still wish to penetrate me, or is it I who has penetrated you?

9) If only you could see what I've seen with your eyes.

10) I want him to witness the extent of my mercy.
