Who has heard of these guys - Snapped Ankles?
see, my dad did have a couple of old cars from europe. only way he could afford em was to do everything - everything - himself.Let’s put it this way, none of my boyhood friends had fathers that owned classic Ferraris. In our neighborhood, we didn’t have classic cars, just old cars.
Dad Bueller brought home some white-collar bacon for sure. It's only hinted at in the movie, but man, that HOUSE!Ferris’ family was pretty well to do, from what I can tell.
Exactly right. It's a White Falcon, and not an Ibanez, for a reason.That said, it seems so specific and indulgent there, as if the character of Ferris wouldn't be into an Edward Van Halen shredder guitar, or a classic Les Paul. Subtle subtext that he was operating on another level than his peers.
I hadn‘t thought of that before, but you see, to be onto something.While extravagantly priced, a White Falcon wouldn't have been out of place. That said, it seems so specific and indulgent there, as if the character of Ferris wouldn't be into an Edward Van Halen shredder guitar, or a classic Les Paul. Subtle subtext that he was operating on another level than his peers.
I can remember the day and date that I saw that movie, very clearly. I had gotten some news that was very good that morning, took the day off of work, and spent the day with a friend, celebrating. By celebrating, I mean watching a couple of movies, having a great meal in between, and cruising around Denver. Good times, and good memories that have lasted 36 years, plus.Exactly right. It's a White Falcon, and not an Ibanez, for a reason.
When I first watched the movie I don't think I noticed the guitar, and wouldn't have known what it was anyway because I didn't play guitar yet. But that movie is what caused me to learn to play the guitar. The parade scene where he lip syncs to "Twist and Shout" is what piqued my interest in The Beatles. And much like untold thousands of 12- year-olds 25 years earlier, once you discover The Beatles, you have to pick up the guitar and start a band with your classmates.
Any show that can make good math jokes is great in my book.They didn’t have a cartoon Chet?
Futurama is the absolute apex of culture, in my book.
I couldn’t agree more. I was hooked from Space Pilot 3000, on.Any show that can make good math jokes is great in my book.
In "Space Piot 3000", when Bender and Fry are on the run, the cops say, "We have you partially surrounded." Bender drops a brick, sideways from his shiny metal ass.
Sold me on the show right there.
The single greatest line on TV is when the gang is on some cemetery planet looking at Fry's nephew's grave. When they start to leave, Bender makes the comment, "Everybody grab a shovel. I'm one skull shy of a Mouseketeer reunion." My hero!
