Half-Step Mississippi Uptown

Meet Edgar Ray Killen, the former Mississippi preacher convicted yesterday on three counts of manslaughter, 41 years after three civil rights workers were ambushed and killed by a Ku Klux Klan mob.

Now here's the burning question: Who does Killen resemble more, the Six Flags Dancing Dude or Uncle "Junior" Corrado Soprano? Make your voice heard and sound off below.

Also, here's something else I can use some help with...Hoobs posed these questions after telling me to me it's "all downhill after 25." He writes: "I've never quite understood the whole 'downhill' thing. Isn't it easier and more fun to go downhill? Shouldn't that mean that life is better? Am I misunderstanding the phrase?" If anyone has some insight on this, feel free to let us all in on it.

And Sheff is officially on fire. First-inning homeruns rawk.

How about the AFI list of the Top 100 Movie Quotes? Has anyone seen this thing? Most. Random. List. Ever.

I don't see anything from Old School on there... Dart===>Neck

Finally Ace, someone who agrees with me about Uncle Jr. and the guy from the six flags ads, good shit.
Killen looks a tit more like the Six Flags Guy, thinks me

That list isn't terrible, AGU. It's not the list I'd go with, and I think they should compile a fresher, more hip list, but it's not terrible.

Instead of "Show me the money," though, I'd go with "I love black peeeeople."

The AFI missed this one:

"I'm cumming!" - From every porn ever made.

…..And what about, “fat drunk and stupid is no way to go through life.” From Animal House

And, “gee it’ll be nice to see ma spit again.” From Johnny Dangerously

And and, “to call you stupid would be an insult to stupid people. I've
worn dresses with higher IQs. I've known sheep that could outwit you.” From A Fish Called Wanda.

And and and, “Ma, he’s an actor not a river.” From My Favorite Year.

I know, I know everyone’s got their own list. I was stoked that they included the “nepalm in the morning” quote from Apocalypse, though. There is something really twisted about those lines / that scene.

The Crow also has this conversation between Lee and everyone's favorite ghostbuster Ernie Hudson:

Hudson: Move and you're dead!

Lee: I'm dead, and I move.

Not that it can compare to Matty Mac's Crow quote of course.

1. Definetly Six Flags Guy
2. Don't let the "downhill thing" keep you up at night. While going downhill may be easier in the terrestrial, pedestrian sense, I think what is important is that you are moving away from the position your at. Going downhill implies that you are at the top of the hill. Being at the top of the hill represents accomplishment. It is the moving away from such position that phrase attempts to convey. If you agree that being at the top of a hill is good, then leaving that position when it's "all downhill" from there or when faced with an "up hill battle" sucks either way.
3. "Eight year olds dude."

Thanks PNoons....

Seriously though, I think one that should be on there is:

"You mean I'm not white?! Does dad know?"

or

"I suppose a fuck's out of the question?"

Great stuff, ladies and germs. Especially Wooglin, who actually answered the "downhill" question and did a good job doing so. The rest of you ignored me and listened to AGU's crap. Don't let him steer this blog, folks.

As for my favorite movie line in history is: "And how does an asshole like Bob get such a nice kitchen?" --Jerry Dignan

Obscure, subtle, you probably wouldn't catch it until the 3rd time you've seen it, but great line. Great line.
