while talking on the "fav. movie" topic this came to my mind. just post your favourite quotes! - (inspired by our very own mr. dirtface.)   there is a "buckethead - quotes"  topic on buckethead.tk and all - but I  couldn´t resist.


" certainly, in the topsy-turvy world of heavy rock, having a good solid piece of wood in your hand is often useful. "

Ian Faith, manager of  Spinal Tap



" live ?  what do you mean with live?? I am a movie-star, not an actor!"

alan swann ( peter o´toole) in " my favourite year"

yup, enjoyed that one too.

i have many quotes i love for all sorts of reasons, political, romantic, humor, etc... but one that for some reason sticks in my mind as one of the most amusing and makes me giggle each time is from Peter Straub\'s "Floating Dragon":

"...but i really am the proud possessor of a particularly beautiful wanger, surely that will stand in my favor?"
Peace.

What I always answer when someone tells me I\'m ugly:

"Well my friends think I\'m ugly, I\'ve got a masculine face". Tom Waits.

another sentence by Tom Waits I like a lot is:

"Misery\'s the river of the world, everybody row!"

"God\'s away on business". Is one I like too.

Sorry if it doesn\'t come from a movie.

here\'s one of my all time favs:


On with the dance! let joy be unconfined;
No sleep till morn, when Youth and Pleasure meet
To chase the glowing hours with flying feet.

---- Lord Byron, Childe Harold’s Pilgrimage

gkg, and when the dance is over ;
byrons venice carnival days...

-
so we\'ll go no more a roving
so late into the night,
though the heart be still as loving,
and the moon be still as bright.

for the sword outwears its sheath,          
and the soul wears out the breast,      
and the heart must pause to breathe,      
and love itself have rest.      

though the night was made for loving,      
and the day returns too soon,      
yet we\'ll go no more a-roving      
by the light of the moon.

With demoniac energy Zappa launched us into my piece. To my surprise I sensed a growing consanguinity with my youthful audience as I played. My fortissimo ending brought out screams and whistles the like of which I had never imagined possible. Dancing Zappa, wild audi- ence, and befuddled me -- I felt like an intruder in a mad scene from ALICE IN WONDERLAND. I had entered my Age of Absurdity.

[Nicolas Slonimsky "Perfect Pitch" --from Chapter 23, "The Age of Absurdity"]

"Ford stared at Arthur, and Arthur was astonished to find that his will was beginning to weaken. He didn\'t realize that this was because of an old drinking game that Ford learned to play in the hyperspace ports that served the madranite mining belts in the star system of Orion Beta.

The game was not unlike the Earth game called Indian Wrestling, and was played like this:

Two contestants would sit either side of a table, with a glass in front of each of them.

Between them would be placed a bottle of Janx Spirit (as immortalized in that ancient Orion mining song "Oh don\'t give me none more of that Old Janx Spirit/ No, don\'t you give me none more of that Old Janx Spirit/ For my head will fly, my tongue will lie, my eyes will fry and I may die/ Won\'t you pour me one more of that sinful Old Janx Spirit").

Each of the two contestants would then concentrate their will on the bottle and attempt to tip it and pour spirit into the glass of his opponent-who would then have to drink it.

The bottle would then be refilled. The game would be played again. And again.

Once you started to lose you would probably keep losing, because one of the effects of Janx spirit is to depress telepsychic power.

As soon as a predetermined quantity had been consumed, the final loser would have to perform a forfeit, which was usually obscenely biological.

Ford Prefect usually played to lose."

from The Hitchhiker\'s Guide to the Galaxy, by the late great Douglas Adams
