3 Day Quote Challenge – Day 1

I happened to follow the Marnie Writes blog, and I wanted to do this challenge.  I’ve decided that my blog isn’t very personal, and perhaps this will be a way to be a little more accessible as a person.

Rules:

  • Thank the person who nominated you.
  • Post a quote for three consecutive days (1 quote for each day) (I’m going to fail – I’m doing a Monday-Wednesday-Friday).
  • Share why this quote appeals so much to you.
  • Nominate 3 different bloggers for each day (Whatever we’ll see)

My Quote:

“Man, this time these crackers have gone too far!” — Bullhorn, from the movie Black Dynamite

The context of this quote matters.  If you look at the face of the guy on the left (Saheed), you’ll recognize that the main cast are considering putting Tiny Tim out of his misery for the pain inflicted by the white man.  This movie don’t never stop, it keeps going to the tippy tippy top!

I fucking love the movie Black Dynamite.  One of my best friends in college was the person who showed it to me, and somehow he managed to keep himself from spoiling the twist ending.  For my bajillionth viewing, we watched it at my pre-wedding party.  When I put the Black Dynamite DVD on my wedding registry (yeeeeahhhh, that went over well), my friend answered this desperate call and hooked me up with it.  My 6th anniversary comes up this month, so I had to do something in celebration of that.

My Tags:

First off, please – if you’re tagged, don’t feel pressure to reply or participate.  If you’re reading, these are good blogs to follow.

I remember talking with Carrie Ann Golden on her Captain Kirk quote.  I think she may enjoy this challenge, but most of all I hope you enjoy her blog!  Filled with memories and really intense feelings, I try to keep up with her pretty solidly.

I think the WebWeavers – a group of people who spin fantastic book reviews – may have a set of quotes they’d enjoy sharing.

Last but not least, there’s always my friend, Tom Darby, who you should check out.  I love his comedic flash fiction, and I thoroughly enjoyed his western mini-series.
