Remember That Song – 3/11/19

Can you name the artist and song:

Where I came from there’s a place called heaven
That’s the place where all the good children go
The houses are of silver, the streets are gold


Last Song: “Middle of the Road” by The Pretenders from the album Learning to Crawl (1984)

Great job J-Dub (@Dubsism)!!!

Don’t harass me, can’t you tell
I’m going home, I’m tired as hell
I’m not the cat I used to be
I got a kid, I’m thirty-three

Quote of the Day: Uncle Buck

[at a meeting with the assistant principal, who’s got a big unsightly growth on her face]

Anita: I’m Anita Hoargarth.

Buck Russell: [Staring at it] I’m Buck Melanoma. Moley Russell’s wart. Not her wart. Not her wart! I’m… I’m the wart. She’s my tumor. My… my growth. My… uh, my pimple. I’m Uncle Wart. Just old Buck “Wart” Russell. That’s what they call me, or Melanoma Head. They’ll call me that. “Melanoma Head’s coming.” I’m s… uncle! Maisy Russell’s uncle!

And that’s all night

Quote of the Day: The Princess Bride

Inigo Montoya: HELLO! MY NAME IS INIGO MONTOYA! YOU KILLED MY FATHER! PREPARE TO DIE!

[Inigo corners Count Rugen, knocks his sword aside, and slashes his cheek, giving him a scar just like Inigo’s]

Inigo Montoya: Offer me money.

Count Rugen: Yes!

Inigo Montoya: Power, too, promise me that.

[He slashes his other cheek]

Count Rugen: All that I have and more. Please…

Inigo Montoya: Offer me anything I ask for.

Count Rugen: Anything you want…

[Rugen knocks Inigo’s sword aside and lunges. But Inigo traps his arm and aims his sword at Rugen’s stomach]

Inigo Montoya: I want my father back, you son of a bitch!

Happy 72nd birthday to director, Rob Reiner.

BTW, if you watch this movie, and this part doesn’t make you want to stand up and cheer, you are dead inside.

Quote of the Day: Diner

Shrevie: Ok, now ask me what’s on the flip side.

Beth: Why?

Shrevie: Just, just ask me what’s on the flip side, OK?

Beth: What is on the flip side?

Shrevie: Hey, Hey, Hey, 1958. Specialty Records.

[Beth nods blankly]

Shrevie: See? You don’t ask me things like that, do you? No! You never ask me what’s on the flip side.

Beth: No! Because I don’t give a shit. Shrevie, who cares about what’s on the flip side about the record?

Shrevie: I do! Every one of my records means something! The label, the producer, the year it was made. Who was copying whose style… who’s expanding on that, don’t you understand? When I listen to my records they take me back to certain points in my life, OK? Just don’t touch my records, ever! You! The first time I met you? Modell’s sister’s high school graduation party, right? 1955. And Ain’t That A Shame was playing when I walked into the door!

Was when I first looked at you

On a watch with no hands

Quote of the Day: M*A*S*H

[Hawkeye was telling Dr. Sidney Freedman about what he initially thought was a chicken clucking inside the bus]

Dr. Sidney Freedman: Then what happened?

Hawkeye: Then I went back toward the front of the bus.

Dr. Sidney Freedman: And what happened next?

Hawkeye: There’s something wrong with it. It stopped making noise. It just–just stopped.

[pauses]

Hawkeye: She-she killed it! She killed it!

Dr. Sidney Freedman: She killed the chicken?

Hawkeye: Oh, my God! Oh, my God! I didn’t mean for her to kill it.

[sobbing]

Hawkeye: I did not–I–I just wanted it to be quiet. It was–it was a baby! She, she smothered her own baby.

[pauses]

Hawkeye: You son of a bitch, why did you make me remember that?

Dr. Sidney Freedman: You had to get it out in the open. Now we’re halfway home.

The series finale of M*A*S*H aired on this day, 36 years ago (February 28, 1983). Over 125 million tuned in to watch! To this day, it is the largest audience for any television series (excluding sports and news events) ever. It is still the standard of which every television series finale is compared.
