I never wanted to spawn. I have baby’s fathers though. They’re men I’d be biologically compelled to spawn with: Jimi Hendrix, Patrice Lumumba, Andre 3000, Nat Turner, D’Angelo… Forrest Whitaker used to be one but he married a woman who’s too pretty. He should’ve married a regular-looking sister like the president, to show he has character. (I’m just jealous.) Malcolm X can’t be on my list because I respect the marriage that he had – he was righteous! Of course there is Peter Steele, Rod Serling, Charles Bukowski, Clark Gable and Bill Clinton. I didn’t mean to list the blacks with the blacks and whites with the whites, I swear! My list is segregated – oh my!
My one now is Daniel Day Lewis. I watched There Will be Blood again. He plays Daniel Plainview in it. I want to be Daniel Plainview for Halloween. He’s the meanest, well, besides Nurse Rached.
Shianwrites wrote a cool post on catch phrases. You should check it out! To follow-up, here are really mean Mr. Plainview catch phrases, including one video:
– “I can’t keep doing this on my own with these…people.” He says it like people are roaches!
– He says this to his estranged son: “You’re just a bastard from a basket! Just a bastard from a basket…”
– He’s drunk, collapsed, sitting on the floor after beating the simpy minster to death. His servant comes to witness the bloody scene, and Daniel Plainview yells: “I’m finished!” Then the dramatic staccato Brahms’ Violin Concerto in D Major plays – it’s so cool and dramatic!
– “Draaaaaaaaainage! I drink YOUR milkshake!” Check it out:
Dainiel Day Lewis is a great actor. I include fictitious characters on my list of baby fawvas too, so Daniel Plainview would normally be on there, but I don’t know if it would work because he hates people. He’d have to screw me with a bag over my head and through a hole in the sheet — and I’d gladly have him with his mean ass!
Oh, this post gave me a good laugh. Is that bad? 🙂
Did you see Forrest Whitaker in “The Crying Game”? He was soooo good in that. I always think of him when I think of the Scorpian and The Frog story.
Thanks Carrie! I don’t think it’s bad at all! I appreciate that someone else besides me can laugh at stuff like this. Yes, I did see this movie — that’s when I first fell in love with him! I never saw the Scorpian and the Frog story — I’ll have to check that out. I think Forrest Whitaker’s sold out a bit though — I guess it’s easy to do when you have all those people throwing money at you!
Forrest’s character in “The Crying Game” tells the other man (I can’t remember that actor’s name) about the scorpian that stung the frog after he promised the frog he wouldn’t if the frog carried him across the pond. When the frog asks, just before dying, “why did you sting me, Scorpian?” the scorpian says, “Because it’s in my nature.” For some reason that story has always stuck with me. Not that I sting people or anything. 😉
Ohhh, so it was in the movie! I thought this was another film that he did.
Oh boy I’ve had all the spawns I’m gonna have but there are a few I would not have minded spawning with..lol
DDL , yes a good spawner
Thanks FPP — indeed, DDL is the coolest!
Hey I love it. Haha! Sick twisted; movies that makes me think, are my fav…. You have skills, you’re writing style on is smart and creative… Thanks 🙂
Thanks SW! I appreciate the compliment! I’m glad you enjoyed it. Most of my favorites are a bit twisted…
Ha you sure know how to make me laugh…lol. I enjoyed reading this…i loved Daniel Day Lewis in there will be blood. Great movie…seen it too many times, but everyone knows even my husband has accepted that I am going to leave him for Johnny Depp lol…or Scarlet Johanson though these days its between Johnny Depp and Charlize Theron lol. I love your posts…love. love, love 🙂 n
I’m glad somebody else loved the movie! How could you not like this movie? I love the soundtrack too — it was intense! Scarlet Johanson, Johnny Depp and Charlize Theron — you have great taste.
You’re the best. I’ll take Andre 3000 off your hands, since you’ve got so many to juggle!
Wait — you could have 1500 and I could have 1500 and we could share the milkshake! Yay!
Dying laughing, per usual
I’m just kind of impressed that you think Rod Serling would’ve been a good choice to make spawn with. He was so awesome. He knew that he could get all that social commentary and critique past the network censors by hiding it behind science fiction.
And you can say your list isn’t segregated, it’s color coded. The purple and green sections will be coming later.
Hee hee! Purple and green sections — it’s funny, I almost put a joke in about green men! That’s so cool you remember some of that social commentary Rod Serling was making! He was also so outerworldly — which is one of my requirements!
The part about the color coding made me laugh, Purple. And I’m with you on Rod Serling. He was brilliant in so many ways.
I’ve had a crush on him since day one — with his cigarettes!
I never had a crush on him but I can ABSOLUTELY see why someone would!
Holy smokes! I didn’t even know of that movie and I consider myself a movie junkie. Must’ve come out at a bad time for me.
Daniel Day Lewis and Ciarán Hinds. Wow!
Oh SSG, I recommend it! DDL won an academy award — and the film won for best edting and I can clearly see why. Paul Thomas Anderson directed it — he’s Maya Rudolph’s husband — she was on Saturday Night Live. Well SSG, I’ve got to tell you I’m having my coffee now — Bustello!
I will definitely have to see it then.
Going for my second cup of coffee now 🙂
Ciarán Hinds. YES.
Oh boy — gotta check him out!
I recommend checking out HBO’s “Rome” series, because he plays Julius Caesar. Deeeeeeeelish.
OMG! Thanks for the recommendations Mme. I look forward to checking these movies out.
Sorry, if Pauly Shore isn’t in it, I won’t watch it.
Another Pauly Shore fan — yay! You’re too funny Fred!
Did I say Pauly Shore? My bad. I meant to say Jack Palance.
What!? The man who could do one handed push-ups on an Academy Awards program? Who could blame you?
“Biologically compelled to spawn with” — LOLOL! Daniel Day Lewis is pretty intense. Did you see him in Age of Innocence? I want to rip off all that Victorian garb, mess up his hair and get wild with him.
Oh boy — maybe I shouldn’t see the movie — I might get too frustrated — oh hell — I’ll see the movie!
Do yourself a personal favor and see the movie. You’ll thank yourself later.
Okay, but if you stop seeing my blog posts it’s because I’ve died from, let’s just say — over-stimulation! Lol!
I also don’t want to spawn (YAY!) but I do have a few guys I wouldn’t mind practicing with:
Mike Rowe (from Dirty Jobs)
Maybe even Eric Roberts because he’s in EVERYTHING.
I know Ed Norton and Eric Roberts — I have to google the rest — did I say “google?” Tee hee! That’s a good way of putting it Jen — “practicing” spawning!
Umm D’Angelo….so funny you mention him. I was just watching a stupid VH1 thing about best songs of the 2000’s or something like that. His video, you know what video I’m talking about, was one of the songs. They flashed a more current picture of D’Angelo. Whoa! He’s let himself go. Such a shame, because he was ridiculously hot.
I know — he got, well, swollen! I just think he had a little more depth and talent than a lot of other other musicians.
Greatest actor ever. Draiiiiiiiinage. Remember I laughed at that when I saw the movie :).
Everytime I look at the title of my post I have to smile — when he says it in the movie I laugh and press ‘rewind’. I agree he is a great actor.
he is also really incredible in Gangs of New York!
Loved that movie too! He was oh so sexy in that to me as well, all grimey and what not!
totally, like all crusty unshaved mmmm
With raging armpit odor prolly!
