Larry Swears Off Swearing

We hear how a young Larry got duped into swearing a lot to try to impress a girl. Guess how that worked out? And he talks about Plan 9 From Outer Space and how Daylight Savings Time should be a holiday.

Quote of the week: “That’s like blanking the blank if you blank the blank.”

    Which is worse: knowing how many days you may properly greet others with a “Happy New Year”, or correcting others, “It’s Daylight Saving – not Savings ” ?

    Answer this question: “Aren’t Mangria tastings and LMDS a natural fit? Well, then why haven’t we done one yet…”

    This just in Larry… A movie moment with poetry!

    Nonno (Cyril Delavanti) recites his last poem in the presence of his granddaughter artist Hannah (Deborah Kerr), Maxine (Ava Gardner) and Rev. Shannon (Richard Burton) – A scene from the film Night Of The Iguana 1964 – Based on the play of the same name by Tennessee Williams.

    I saw this film as a child and with the help of your podcast, it helped me bring this experience to mind. Yes indeed, there are special moments of cinema magic that stay with you years down the road.

    Larry, I saw Pretty Woman on TV this week. I loved your scene. It was the best part of the movie.

    Magical movie moment. From one of my all times; Good Will Hunting:Chuckie: Are we gonna have a problem here?Clark: No, no, no, no! There’s no problem here. I was just hoping you might give me some insight into the evolution of the market economy in the southern colonies. My contention is that prior to the Revolutionary War, the economic modalities, especially in the southern colonies, could be most aptly described as agrarian precapitalist.Chuckie: Let me tell you something -Will: Of course that’s your contention. You’re a first-year grad student; you just got finished reading some Marxian historian, Pete Garrison probably. You’re gonna be convinced of that ’till next month when you get to James Lemon. Then you’re going to be talking about how the economies of Virginia and Pennsylvania were entrepreneurial and capitalist way back in 1740. That’s gonna last until next year; you’re gonna be in here regurgitating Gordon Wood, talkin’ about, you know, the pre-revolutionary utopia and the capital-forming effects of military mobilization.Clark: Well, as a matter of fact, I won’t, because Wood drastically underestimates the impact of social -Will: “Wood drastically underestimates the impact of social distinctions predicated upon wealth, especially inherited wealth”? You got that from Vickers’ “Work in Essex County,” page 98, right? Yeah, I read that too. Were you gonna plagiarize the whole thing for us? Do you have any thoughts of your own on this matter? Or do you, is that your thing, you come into a bar, read some obscure passage and then pretend – you pawn it off as your own, as your own idea just to impress some girls, embarrass my friend?Clark: [looks down in shame]Will: See, the sad thing about a guy like you is, in 50 years you’re gonna start doin’ some thinkin’ on your own and you’re going to come up with the fact that there are two certainties in life: one, don’t do that, and two, you dropped 150 grand on a f***in’ education you could have got for a dollar fifty in late charges at the public library!Clark: Yeah, but I will have a degree. And you’ll be servin’ my kids fries at a drive-thru on our way to a skiing trip.Will: That may be, but at least I won’t be unoriginal. But I mean, if you have a problem with that, I mean, we could just step outside – we could figure it out.Clark: No, man, there’s no problem. It’s cool.Will: It’s cool?Clark: Yeah.Will: Cool.Chuckie: Fuckin’ damn right it’s cool. How do you like me NOW?Morgan: My boy’s wicked smart!
