Movie Quote. Ha! Another Movie Quote!

Apparently Larry King's quotes have been used to promote so many movies that this has merited its own feature piece in the LA Times. Calling him "King Blurb," the Times pokes at the old man's seeming love of just about everything, from You, Me & Dupree to De-Lovely to "a film about Turkish genocide called "Screamers" ("Very well done!")."

There's a particularly entertaining piece on King's perceived adoration of Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest, which he called "Finally, a Movie Worth Seeing Over and Over!" When asked for comment, King replied "I told the CNN person to tell the studio, 'I didn't understand the damn movie at all. I'd have to see it over and over again to figure out what happened.' And then they went and used it!"

about me

I'm Blake. I like to learn stuff.

I like to learn about history, art, culture, sports, and politics. I like learning about what happens when you mix Diet Coke and Mentos. I like learning about Britney's latest flameup, Beckham's newest haircut, and how to make little origami gift boxes out a piece of 8.5x11.

I started this blog for me to have a place to write about the things that I've learned. I hope that you enjoy reading.
