Have fun.


Ok this one is weak as it's a fave yet I can't recall the film, probably because it's not a great film it might "The Eagle has landed" anyway an officer's woman is talking to him and she is a bit pissed off, she says "I thought you loved me" he responds with "I can't help what you think".

Just such a classic male response.

Marla Singer from Fight Club "I haven't been fucked like that since grade school". The line they wanted but were told not to ise so they changed it to something worse so they could revert back.


Actually that was the replacement for the line they wanted to use which was "I want to have your abortion".

From IMDb trivia:

"The original "pillow talk"-scene had Marla saying "I want to have your abortion". When this was objected to by Fox 2000 Pictures President of Production Laura Ziskin, David Fincher said he would change it on the proviso that the new line couldn't be cut. Ziskin agreed and Fincher wrote the replacement line, "I haven't been fucked like that since grade school". When Ziskin saw the new line, she was even more outraged and asked for the original line to be put back, but, as per their deal, Fincher refused."


I love all the Doors quotes! Good job.


Thank you. Morrison was a true poet, and the band could PLAY. Their link to my favorite poet, William Blake, is the icing on the cake.


"And I'm gettin' harder than Chinese algebra." - Tom Waits lyric from Pasties and a G-string


“If the doors of perception were cleansed, the world would appear infinite.”
- The Marriage of Heaven and Hell, The Proverbs of Hell, William Blake (the line whence The Doors took their name)




Clive James RIP

"He looked like a brown condom full of walnuts." Referring to body builder Arnold Schwarzenegger.

"Twin miracles of mascara, her eyes looked like the corpses of two small crows that had crashed into a chalk cliff." Referring to romance novelist Barbara Cartland.


Vows are spoken
To be broken
Feelings are intense
Words are trivial
Pleasures remain
So does the pain
Words are meaningless
And forgettable

- Enjoy the Silence - Depeche Mode


I saw this concert documentary in the theater recently. It was cool being in a movie theater with a bunch of Depeche Mode fans.


That's cool.

I know seeing tour was a reunion of people that I hadn't seen in almost 30 years.


I’ve never seen them in concert but I’m looking into going to one in the future. I’ve been to a several concerts this year so I’m kinda in the mood. I’ve seen The Cure, Duran Duran and Peter Hook who was in New Order.


Sounds like you have great taste in music. 🥂


Thank you!

"You reached for the secret too soon, you cried for the moon
Shine on you crazy diamond
Threatened by shadows at night, and exposed in the light
Shine on you crazy diamond
Well you wore out your welcome with random precision
Rode on the steel breeze
Come on you raver, you seer of visions
Come on you painter, you piper, you prisoner, and shine" - Pink Floyd

"Shut the fuck up Donny" - The Big Lebowski

"Through God, all things are possible, so jot that down" - It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia
