So you wanna play with magic Boy, you should know whatcha falling for
Taken from the song Dark Horse by Katy Perry featuring Juicy J, from her fourth studio album Prism (2013). Perry has had an array of smashes since her breakthrough in 2008, including Roar and Firework.
I’m such a big fan of The Simpsons. There can’t be too many who aren’t. It was a big part of my comedic childhood and I’ve mentioned it countless times on my blog, going back to early September 2013 and this wit from Homer. Have eight very funny scenes starring the man himself. Feel free to let me know your favourite or any other memorable jokes from the show.
The scene that has made me laugh most. Poor Homer!
I still can’t hear the word incognito without thinking of this happy, and rather luckless, soul.
Homer sure does love his confectionary!
“You know boy, I don’t think I’ve ever felt as close to you as I do right…”
Hilarious even if you haven’t seen Indiana Jones.
Two great scenes in one here. And jokes on chocolate always get bonus points.
Not the most visual of scenes, but it cracks me up every time.
As someone rather useless at DIY, I fully sympathise with Homer’s experiences with ‘Le Grill’.
Since my last film quiz on con artists, there have been two sad losses in Hollywood, that of the American director Joel Schumacher (1939 – 2020) and of Italian composer Ennio Morricone (1928). Starting off as a costume designer Schumacher started submitting scripts before he broke into Hollywood and having a wide array of successful films. Morricone is most associated with the so-called ‘spaghetti westerns’, but had a hugely varied nd successful St career in film and television.
Not everything that is faced can be changed but nothing can be changed until it is faced.
Writer and activist James Baldwin (1924-1987) whose immense talent and passion shone through in his themes of race, sex and class. Of all the many things I have read and listened to in the past few months that have highlighted the different obstacles black people have faced trying to get equality, this one still resonates the most.
They passed me by, all of those great romances You were, I felt, robbing me of my rightful chances My picture clear, everything seemed so easy
Taken from the song One of Us by Swedish pop group ABBA. It was the first single from their final studio album The Arrival (1981). I’ve posted Fernando and The Winner Takes it All. Feel free to share your favourite ABBA song.
