Movie Quote of the Week

M * A * S * H

Capt. Peterson, Nurse Corps

What are you two HOODLUMS doing in this hospital?

Hawkeye Pierce

Ma'am, we are surgeons and we are here to operate. We just waiting for a starting time. That's all.

Capt. Peterson, Nurse Corps

You can't even go near a patient until Col. Merrill says its ok and he's still out to lunch.

Trapper John

Look, mother, I want to go to work in one hour. We are the Pros from Dover and we figure to crack this kid's chest and get out to golf course before it gets dark. So you go find the gas-passer and you have him pre-medicate this patient. Then bring me the latest pictures on him. The ones we saw must be 48 hours old by now. Then call the kitchen and have them rustle us up some lunch. Ham and eggs will all right. Steak would be even better. And then give me at least ONE nurse who knows how to work in close without getting her tits in my way!

Capt. Peterson, Nurse Corps

She turns to leave and bumps into a nurse.
Capt. Peterson, Nurse Corps

Oh! Fool!

She stomps out of ward.

How do you want your steak cooked?

It's amazing how a follow-up work by an artist or musician can shed light on that which is already familiar to the listener. This is certainly true of Worlds Apart, the new And You Will Know Us By the Trail Of Dead album; while I liked Source Codes & Tags when it first came out and have listened to it several times since, hearing the direction they take in Worlds Apart puts the material on Source Codes & Tags into a new perspective. The more recent album is more lyrical, but is definitely cut from the same cloth as the previous one. The musical construction on Source Codes is revealed in context to be much more involved than it initially seemed.

I remember Royal S. Brown's original review of Elliot Goldenthal's score from Alien3. He lamented the lack of a distinct style in the score. I must admit that while I did like Alien3 when I first heard it, I shared his view that it seemed to be rather all over the place. Of course, Alien3 is the score that pretty much introduced me to Goldenthal, as I was unfamiliar with Golden Gate, Pet Sematary (sic), and Drugstore Cowboy at the time. Of course, now Goldenthal is an A-list composer, complete with an Oscar for Frida, and his distinct sound has graced plenty of films... and listening to Alien3 nowadays is a very different experience. It is easier to understand where each musical idea fits into the whole of his oeuvre.

I double-booked my Saturday. Damn.

On the other hand, I taught myself to resize pictures in HTML!

This is really disturbing. Really. Disturbing. And nobody dare rent Malicious* to see my boobs!!!

Somebody e-mailed me about Ennio Morricone's The Good, the Bad and the Ugly score. Unfortunately, it got sent to me junk mail folder and accidentally deleted. If this was you, please re-send the e-mail. If it wasn't you, then you just wasted twelve seconds of your life reading this. Chump.


* Yes, it's true. Molly Ringwald showed her breasts in this '95 direct-to-video thriller. Now your life has been enriched, so if you read that last paragraph, perhaps I've made up for it for you...
