742 Evergreen Q and A

I can’t believe I haven’t already done this one…

Shame on me.  Shame, shame, shame.

This week’s theme is fairly evident, if you haven’t figured it out just based on the post title, then shame on you!  It’s, of course, all quotes from The Simpsons Movie.

Do you have a movie you’d like me include in these Q and A sessions?  Or a theme?  Or a specific actor?  Let me know in the comments and I’ll see what I can put together for you.

(All previous Q and A iterations are here.)

As a reminder:  The Q’s are life situations you may find yourself in, and the A’s are the corresponding quotes from movies that you could considering using in those situations if you were mad like me.  But, I am a professional Jester, so take that into consideration before trying them on your own.

A: “Bye, everybody!”

I will never grow tired of watching The Simpsons on TV or on Film.  They always find a way to tickle my funny bone.  And while I will admit that sometimes the episodes can blur into one another, that isn’t reason enough to walk away from the characters.  Every generation has that one show that came on at the right time and then grew up with them.  The Simpsons is that for me.  Here there be fierce pacifier wielding babies, smart saxophone playing girls, crazy trouble making boys, tired peace keeping moms, and Homer.  There are no monsters.  Thanks for playing along.

Can’t Hardly Q and A

This week’s theme is fairly evident, if you haven’t figured it out just based on the post title, it’s all quotes from Can’t Hardly Wait.  This series was thrown together based on a request from The Queen.  It was on TV a few weeks ago, we were watching it, and she was amazed with how many lines I knew.  She said, “This should be one of your movie posts,” and now it is.

Do you have a movie you’d like me include in these Q and A sessions?  Or a theme?  Or a specific actor?  Let me know in the comments and I’ll see what I can put together for you.

SS Q and A

I know what you are thinking: Matticus, what does SS stand for?  Something Stupid.  Silly Sisters.  Savory Snacks.  There are just so many options!  But, this week, SS stands for Steven Seagal.  That’s right!  Musician, martial arts expert, friend of the environment and terrible actor.  But, that hasn’t stopped me from pulling in several of his movie quotes into my lexicon.

………

Neverland, and the story of Peter Pan is without a doubt one of my favorite things.  Mermaids, indians, pirates, adventures, and never, ever, having to grow up.  Who hasn’t fantasized about returning to their life as a child?  Or, perhaps not their childhood, but one that is portrayed through film and the written word – carefree, imagination led playing.  I long for that often.  Here there be lost boys, and faeries, and sword fights, and one clock swallowing ticking crocodile of a monster.  Thanks for playing along.  If you believe, it becomes reality.
