So yesterday’s quote was from The Princess Bride, a book I have been meaning to read since forever ago. My friend Chad swears by the comedic genius of the book, but i don’t know if it can match the movie. After all, the movie had a lead role by Fred Savage a.k.a. Kevin Arnold, and everybody knows how wicked tough it is to upstage that guy.
Check out this week’s sci-fi quote! (hint: it was adapted into a badass movie with Harrison Ford)
“For Mercer everything is easy, he thought, because Mercer accepts everything. Nothing is alien to him. But what I’ve done, he thought; that’s become alien to me. In fact everything has become unnatural; I’ve become an unnatural self.”
I wanted you to take one thing away from yesterday’s quote: the Dude abides.
Now time for some fantasy awesomeness for you to guess!
“When I was your age, television was called books.”
So I was out of it for a couple days with a fricken superflu but I am back in full effect. Okay, maybe not full effect–I’ve still got the nasty nasal drip going on–but well enough that I can throw some quotes up without throwing my breakfast up.
So the quote on Monday was from Jack in The Shining, which a couple peeps got. Now take a stab at this quote from one of my fav movies of all time!
“Donny was a good bowler, and a good man. He was one of us. He was a man who loved the outdoors… and bowling, and as a surfer he explored the beaches of Southern California, from La Jolla to Leo Carrillo and… up to… Pismo. He died, like so many young men of his generation, he died before his time. In your wisdom, Lord, you took him, as you took so many bright flowering young men at Khe Sanh, at Langdok, at Hill 364. These young men gave their lives. And so would Donny. Donny, who loved bowling. And so, Theodore Donald Karabotsos, in accordance with what we think your dying wishes might well have been, we commit your final mortal remains to the bosom of the Pacific Ocean, which you loved so well. Good night, sweet prince.”
How many of you knew that yesterday’s quote was from Sylvia Plath? I went with my wife a few years back and saw Gweneth Paltrow play her in that movie Sylvia, andI swear if I’d had had a razor in that theater I would have done myself in. Before then I had no idea what kind of crappy stuff she’d had going on with her. So super depressing.
Anyways, try to guess who this maniacal Monday quote is from. But seriously, figure it out quick because this crazy dude has me strapped with C4 that is set to go off unless someone answers this quote.
“Wendy? Darling? Light, of my life. I’m not gonna hurt ya. I’m just going to bash your brains in.”
Issac Asimov is one of those people I wish I could kick right in the dick, you know? I mean, the dude makes me sick, with all his inventing stuff and groundbreaking ideas about robots. What a mega-douche.
Despite my crippling jealousy, I still have to admit that the guy was something special–hence yesterday’s quote from The Gods Themselves. I know the quote was a tough one, but I figured it was about time to throw some Asimov into this biatch.
Can you guess this quote? It’s a little on the sad side of romantic, but still wicked good.
“There is something demoralizing about watching two people get more and more crazy about each other, especially when you are the only extra person in the room. It’s like watching Paris from an express caboose heading in the opposite direction–every second the city gets smaller and smaller, only you feel it’s really you getting smaller and smaller and lonelier and lonelier, rushing away from all those lights and excitement at about a million miles an hour.”
You know what? I’m a little tripped out that more people didn’t recognize yesterday’s quote from H.P. Lovecraft. That dude was like Poe in that he was an O.G. when it came to the horror game. If you haven’t already, you ought to go and get down on some Cthulu.
Now, check out this week’s sci-fi quote!
“The easiest way to solve a problem is to deny it exists.”
Do you remember the scene in Planet of the Apes where Charleton Heston said the quote from yesterday? That thing was wicked epic, right? He’s all pissed off, throwing bows as the apes lace him up and toss him into the monkey jail. Then they have their whole tribunal thing to figure out where the hairless wonder came from. Seriously though, that movie was fricken awesome, but it’s got nothing on some Soylent Green.
But anyways, enough about my president (kidding!). Onward to the quote!
“The end is near. I hear a noise at the door, as of some immense slippery body lumbering against it. It shall not find me. God, that hand! The window! The window!”
