Freddy, as a younger man, I was a sculptor, a painter, and a musician. There was just one problem: I wasn't very good. As a matter of fact, I was dreadful. I finally came to the frustrating conclusion that I had taste and style, but not talent. I knew my limitations. We all have our limitations, Freddy. Fortunately, I discovered that taste and style were commodities that people desired. Freddy, what I am saying is: know your limitations. You are a moron.

Such a good movie! I have been a Steve Martin fan since "The Jerk".

I agree, although I almost lost my stomach after seeing Bowfinger...oh, wait, not Bowfinger, it was the sequel to Cheaper by the Dozen.

However, there are two words that I will use to describe my unrelenting appreciation and admiration regardless of any film, good or bad, that he makes:

Lucky Day

After a TDY to USCENTCOM in Florida in 1994, I brought back three laserdiscs for photogoot and I:

  • L.A. Story

  • Planes, Trains & Automobiles

  • Dirty Rotten Scoundrels

They made a musical of that last one, and its playing here in August - I can't wait to see it!

LA Story is still one of my favorite movies ever. I could watch it fifty times. Oh wait I mean I have watched it fifty times.

I also recently lived Planes, Trains, & Automobiles. I still owe a post on that...

My favorite line from Planes, Trains, & Automobiles is

Car Rental Agent: How may I help you?
Neal: You can start by wiping that fucking dumbass smile off your rosy fucking cheeks! Then you can give me a fucking automobile: a fucking Datsun, a fucking Toyota, a fucking Mustang, a fucking Buick! Four fucking wheels and a seat!

I have been a fan since the "wild & crazy guy" album.

I didn't so much care for that album, but I loved his collection of short stories, Cruel Shoes.

I have a special purpose.

The answer my friend is style.

This is a classic, just classic. Good form sir!

Interestingly enough, I feel like Lawrence Jameison to schpydurx's Freddy Benson most of the time.
