Fun Time Open Thread: Fun Movie Quotes

It’s that time again. This week I have a selection of awesome movie quotes for you to identify. I have a deep and abiding love for fun movies. It always made me feel bad when I worked in the theater world, because I felt like my education and knowledge should encourage me toward more substantive entertainment, but I am what I am. I’ll take The Fifth Element over something artistic with subtitles any day. My quote sources reflect this.

  1. “No, they’re trying to fly that tank.”
  2. “To hell with this. I’m gonna live!”
  3. “Well, it’s a well known fact, Sonny Jim, that there’s a secret society of the five wealthiest people in the world, known as The Pentavirate, who run everything in the world, including the newspapers, and meet tri-annually at a secret country mansion in Colorado, known as The Meadows.”
  4. “You rush a miracle man, you get rotten miracles”
  5. “Oi! Ten thousand years will give you such a crick in the neck!”
  6. “And then one time I ate some rotten berries. Man, there were some strong gasses seepin’ out of my butt that day.”
  7. “I’m just a mean green mother from outer space and I’m bad.”
  8. “Screws fall out all the time. The world is an imperfect place.”
  9. “Alyssa, I’m sorry I called you a gap-toothed bitch. It’s not your fault you’re so gap-toothed.”
  10. “It was some time after its creation when most people forgot that the very oldest stories of the beginning are, sooner or later, about”¦ blood. At least, that’s one theory. The philosopher Didactylos has suggested an alternative hypothesis: ‘Things just happen. What the hell.'”
  11. “What’s a unicorn?” “Fabled creature! You know, the horse with the horn, impossible to capture”¦”

And, to close out the night, here’s something from one of my favorite movies of all time. It’s artsy and fun, the best of both worlds.

It’s clear I am showing my age by the one’s I recognized. ~sob~

Guys, I just don’t think I can afford my health insurance anymore. For most people, my $200/month payment is probably minuscule, but dammit, it’s a lot of money on my wages. That isn’t the problem, though – the problem is that they don’t pay for ANYTHING. I honestly feel like I’m throwing my money in a black hole. I’ve tried to use my insurance twice, for minor injuries, and both times they paid practically nothing on the claim, even after I called them and hounded them about it. One of my biggest pet peeves is wasting money, and I feel like I’m wasting my money every month, when I truly really need it for other things.

Here’s the thing: I’m moving out of state in a few months and won’t be able to take my insurance with me. So I have to cancel it anyway. I don’t know when I’ll get insurance again; it’s such a crapshoot and many jobs now don’t even give you an option. So I feel like I’ve got to go back to just being really, really careful that I don’t do anything that might get me hurt or sick. I hate living that way (risk can be a good thing) but I simply cannot afford coverage anymore. I feel…irresponsible or something. And if anybody today starts talking smack about socialized/nationalized healthcare, I may lash out with my claws.

200 bucks is a lot of money for anyone, I think. It’s certainly too much to have to pay for health care. Can you weasel your way onto someone else’s plan – a family member or a partner? You have to pay certain premiums for that but they’re often worth it for the coverage.

Have you considered an MSA? It isn’t insurance but that 200 a month could go into one w/ serious tax breaks only to be used for medical expenses and then at the end of the year if you didn’t need it it is still yours. I know this isn’t a great answer if you have a major medical expense but if your normal med costs are just like an occasional bout of flu without hospitalization then this would work.

Some day we’ll have socialized medicine. I hope. As someone with a chronic condition that lands me in the hospital roughly once a year my worst fear is loosing our insurance.

A bazillion years ago in a lifetime far far away I sold insurance and ironies of ironies couldn’t afford my own but something else you might consider is something called a catastrophic or hospitalization only plan. They are usually (depending on where you live) affordable and have really high deductibles so if you get hit with cancer or something you wont be destitute but you aren’t saddled with insane monthly payments. Some people do this in tandem w/ MSA but make sure you get a knowledgeable agent/broker you can trust. MSA tax laws have changed and you don’t want to get screwed. They are very specific about what the money can be spent on especially the ones that are pretax contributions.

I did enjoy the Neil Gaiman episode! I think I’ve only seen that one and the “clone” people-from-goop episodes from the 6th season. I just haven’t gotten a hold of it yet!

I’m glad it brought back love of the Doctor, because the way they did Tennant’s special episode finale left a bad taste in my mouth. :/

I have produced another work of art (hint: it is below the gif).

Artist’s Statement: Abiding in the very depths of our humanity are forces which might empower the gallery-goer to seize the viewing experience and make of it what she or he wills. We must draw upon this power to see beyond what the artist places in front of us. Will we be emboldened by the collision of our self-knowledge with the edifice of distrust erected by twenty-first century consumerism? Can these cataclysmic forces be benign, or do they upend the very paradigm of contemporary perception? Might we clothe the nakedness of one’s individuality in the public sphere? In my work you will find an intrepid exploration of these quandaries.

My work celebrates the existence of the escape key.

Artist’s statements are a tragicomically awful mode of writing. Mine is not meant to be understood; it is meant to make readers queasy. Such is the secret purpose of the ideal artist’s statement. I have come to this conclusion through years of careful study and attending gallery openings, where they often have free booze.

Ugh, I’ve made this mistake a couple times. I don’t go out to the bars often, but the last three times I’ve been out, I got drunk and gave away my phone number a total of five different times. Each time, I’m thinking to myself, “What the hell, I never give out my number!” Well, yeah, apparently I do.

Luckily, only one guy turned out to be totally sketch. One turned into a great Words With Friends competitor, another shares my same music taste and lets me know when great shows are going on, another is in law school and sends random texts with pun-filled jokes while he’s in class, and the last one is nice but way too young for me (he just turned 21) and I don’t think he realizes how old I am (26 a.k.a. done with the every-night-at-the-bar scene).

As for you … good luck, whatever that entails!

What’s that ringing I sometimes get in my ear when I first wake up? What are the tips of shoelaces called? What computer operating system do you recommend for a parasailing Norwegian, and why?

Yay! Community is coming back. I dont know which genius decided to put Parks and Rec on hiatus. As Liz Lemon would say “what the what?”

I love the line “Heineken? Fuck that shit!” from Blue Velvet. Not a fun movie. I think the jury is still out on exactly what kind of movie that one is but boy, it sure is intriguing to watch.

I am so excited for March now. Both Community and Mad Men air within a few weeks of each other, so my television time will be filled with great programming. I’m hoping that Todd VanDerWerff from A.V. Club continues to write his weekly column about Community, since he seems to be just as excited about the show as the viewers are.
