What the bippin bip.

Ok. Movie time. This one should be (hopefully) slightly harder than Wayne's World, and everyone needs to Facebook me their answers so that there is no confusion.


"That is what happens when you sit behind a desk. You forget things, like the weight in the hand of a gun that's loaded and one that's not."


Happy pondering!!


All righty, here's the Wednesday hint.

"You know, we used to outsource this kind of thing. But what we found was the countries we outsourced to had unreliable power grids. Very Third World. You'd turn on a switch - power wouldn't come on, and then tempers would get short. People would resort to pulling fingernails. Acid drips on bare skin. The whole exercise would become counterproductive. But here, the power's stable. Here, there's a nice even flow. Here, you can flip a switch and the power stays on all day. Where is she?"



Friday give away... For those of you who haven't seen this movie, you've probably still heard people make fun of this line. And you can probably guess the plot from this too.



Person 1: I don't know who you are. I don't know what you want. If you are looking for ransom, I can tell you I don't have money. But what I do have are a very particular set of skills; skills I have acquired over a very long career. Skills that make me a nightmare for people like you. If you let my daughter go now, that'll be the end of it. I will not look for you, I will not pursue you. But if you don't, I will look for you, I will find you, and I will kill you. 
Person 2 [after a long pause]: Good luck.

Happy Friday!!

No clue! I wonder if I will ever win one of these.

Comeon, B, Let's have a play list of your songs. Bowie is getting old and they mostly reek a bit. No fair copping out.

Pops said...

I think I am getting closer to knowing this movie. What is B doing with an action movie? Maybe a foreign location? Maybe France? I don't know, just guessing. Keep the hints coming, B.

W.V. bedsagi Like the bed sags when I lay my 297 lbs on it. Or is that Meat Loaf?

Matt said...

HAHA!! Keep the Meatloaf jokes a comin' Pops!

Dan W said...

The Meat can take it!

Emily said...

But can his bed?

Matt said...

Yeah, Dad... Has Meatloaf been known to sleep in your bed lately or what? Haha! He is just like, in there under the covers in between you and Chester sweating and singing all night?

Dan W said...

I think Meat Loaf actually may be smaller than me nowadays... Definitely a healthier boy since his heart attacks, etc.

About George sleeping with the Meat, one of the lyrics in "Rock and Roll Dreams Come Through" is something like: "If you hang on to a chorus, it can get you through the night." With George it's probably more likely Linda Ronstadt choruses that he falls asleep to (or Marine Corps marching songs--that was hilarious on your playlist a while back!), but at least something in the bed with him...

Pops said...

When Jane washed the sheets last week there might have been a little meatloaf along with some ice cream, Ruben Sandwitch, mud pie pie, orange juice, and enchlada sauce. One never knows what is found in the bed of consenting adults. But you will never catch me in bed saying "Good luck...Bart...luck" Choruses, Dan? Not likely Ronstadt because she reminds me of Jerry Brown and Brown reminds me of the mess California is in and I don't like to go to bed thinking politics. Maybe a soft Henry Mancini, or my boy Frank S. or MoTab or loud, booming Arcade Fire heavy on the bass wooffers. When all else fails, Willie Nelson singing Wyoming songs.

Matt said...

"Willie Nelson Wyoming songs" !!

"One never knows what is found in the bed of consenting adults" !!!

"Mud pie pie" !!

"My boy Frank S." !!

Pops, not only are you the king of the family, but you are the king of comedy!

Pops said...

Nice hint quote, B. One of my favorite lines from the movie. Very macho dad I would say. see ya

Dan W said...

Yay, I got it wright! Was I first, however? We'll see. I know you're rooting for me cuz you'll hear awesome music for a week! Hee hee...

Pops said...

Yeah, Never ending MeatLoaf! Might be better than never ending Bowie. If I win at least I will have a mix and some off-the-wall selections for you to laugh at or hate.

Sue said...

Why all the Bowie hate dad?

Pops said...

no hate, just no like.
