    Movie Mash-Up

    Ok, here's what I have in mind. Clues are posted for a movie. They can be quotes, lists of some of the actors in it, trivia about it, goofs from filming, and so on- just so long as they're things people might remember about the movie one way or another. Try not to pick movies that are very obscure, and try not to pick clues that are too obscure. I'll start off. ============================== One Hollywood tough guy has gone on record about his role in this film (films). He said that now he actually has gotten fans that are small children. They've come up to him and wanted him to come to their houses and act out his movie role there.

    Hi

    I'm glad you're benefiting from the posts. Personally, I think it's better to post with a bit more kindness, as it is friendlier for the readers who don't post here. The usual argument against that includes people who say that there's nobody doing that- and I obviously can't prove they do because they don't post! :) I'm glad you've been helped when you weren't posting, and also now that you are. There's an old poem I heard about in twi. It sums up why I keep hoping new people find us and read around the forums. The Bridge Builder By Will Allen Dromgoole An old man going a lone highway, Came, at the evening cold and gray, To a chasm vast and deep and wide. Through which was flowing a sullen tide The old man crossed in the twilight dim, The sullen stream had no fear for him; But he turned when safe on the other side And built a bridge to span the tide. “Old man,” said a fellow pilgrim near, “You are wasting your strength with building here; Your journey will end with the ending day, You never again will pass this way; You’ve crossed the chasm, deep and wide, Why build this bridge at evening tide?” The builder lifted his old gray head; “Good friend, in the path I have come,” he said, “There followed after me to-day A youth whose feet must pass this way. This chasm that has been as naught to me To that fair-haired youth may a pitfall be; He, too, must cross in the twilight dim; Good friend, I am building this bridge for him.”

""But just wait and see You'll come running back (I won't have to worry no more) You'll come running back (spend the rest of my life with you, baby) You'll come running back to me Go ahead, go ahead and light up the town."

    This was the recently-ended show, "the Big Bang Theory." I'm sorry to see it end, but it had to end sometime, and it ended on a good note. As Raf once pointed out about a different show, it will live on in reruns anyway.

    Next song. "You'll come running back (said you would baby) You'll come running back (I said so many times before) You'll come running back to me."

    Name that Tune

    Hm. I have a copy of that movie on DVD, sitting on a shelf. I'm waiting for the right mood to play it. But just mentioning it puts me in the right time-frame. We're talking an 80s flick here. Ok, the song is "Rhythm of the Night." The artist was a De Barge, so I'm going with El De Barge. (The movie I meant was "the Last Dragon", featuring Taimok as "Bruce Leroy", and Sho Nuff, the self-appointed Shogun of Harlem.) (I met Taimok once, when a friend was ruining a shoot of one of his movies. I swear it's true. I had 2 young brothers tagging along with me in lower Manhattan, and we were having trouble looking for the uptown entrance for a station. We passed an alley, and saw a guy holding a tied woman, with her looking bruised, and him holding a gun to her head. I began to move us faster at the sight of the gun, and kept us moving when I saw the film camera rolling. I was thinking we might actually make the final cut since we were doing the obvious. One brother decided to stop and stand completely still, and ruined the shot. Darned if I know where the autograph went, but he signed one for each of us since I had paper. Taimok, not the kid.) ( I remember the line the gunman said, but to this day, I don't know if the movie was ever released. )

    Name that Tune

    It's also not "Good Time", by INXS and Jimmy Barnes (off the "Lost Boys" soundtrack.) It sounds familiar, but I just can't place it yet.
  12. DWBH: "...Stop blaming ME for whatever it is Frontczak is GUILTY OF, Dr. Freud, and “Physician heal thyself”! I fail to understand exactly what it is which prompts you..." Rocky: "Nonsense. You're in no position to psychoanalyze." DWBH: "Wrong again, Rocky. Wrong again. I used to get paid quite well as a Psychiatric Nurse to do exactly that. Hmmmm........" WordWolf: " I suspect that both the training to do so and the practice of same were more about interacting with a patient, observing them, and so on. That's not the same as reading a handful of posts and diagnosing someone formally." DWBH: "....So, I knew Frontczak fairly well back then, and my numerous personal interactions with him certainly helped me form my professional opinion of him then and now. I have never claimed to have diagnosed Frontczak “formally” or definitively. That’s your inference. I do claim to have the professional expertise to make some educated observations about his blatant malignant sociopathic behavior, based not only on “a handful of posts”, but also based on 4 years of interaction and personal interaction with and observation of Frontczak and many of those giving him cover today, like Quillen. " Rocky:"..... And even if I was, you really don't have the right to diagnose me...." I haven't consulted with anyone, DWBH, but it seems both Rocky and I saw you as trying to psychoanalyze Rocky based on a handful of posts.

    She should have followed up with that specialist in Austin.
  14. Some of those may sound a bit familiar, but nothing's springing to mind. Mrs Wolf couldn't answer it yet, either.

    I can't get the music to play in my head yet, so I'm stuck for now.

    Correct, but I thought you'd pause and let someone else take it. No problem, but it's your turn. :)

    All right, I REALLY didn't see that coming. If you're up for it, I'd really like to hear some of your journey, what led to this, to whatever degree you'd volunteer. (Naturally, I can't speak for everyone, but I don't intend to be rude if you volunteer anything.)

    Name that Tune

    Ok, violating my usual rule about older songs. This song is not from the mid-80s or earlier. I'll take the title OR the artist. "There is so much a man can tell you, so much he can say. You remain my power, my pleasure, my pain, baby. To me you're like a growing addiction that I can't deny. Won't you tell me is that healthy, baby?"

    All of those are giveaways. I was thinking of using the second one, in fact. "Blazing Saddles".

    I would have gotten the title cut a lot faster, but that's just me. Then again, I heard a commercial recently use "Starman", so what do I know?

    Just so we have confirmation, these 2 screen-names belong to the same person? If so, yes, I'm VERY surprised. (One, that he was a Mod, two, that his personal journey went in this direction.) Before we get to discussing that, I'd just like independent confirmation that this wasn't just oldies making some odd joke at modwildcat's expense.

    Hi

    Hello. Have a seat. Feel free to look around. If you're new, you'll be shocked at some of the opinions, but there's few opinions universally held here. We disagree with each other about a lot of things, and find the discussions to be healthy. If all you're used to is twi or twi-lite, that may be a whole new experience, or even a shocking experience. Take it at your own pace. BTW, most of us may hold strong opinions- but that doesn't mean our lives revolve around them, or that we're very emotional about them. There are differences.
