My Mind Just Got Blowed Up

Getting ready for a podcast tomorrow morning on The Wild Bunch (1969) and looking up information on Peckinpah when I find ... wait a minute ... this can't be right ...

Sam Peckinpah directed Julian Lennon's first two MUSIC VIDEOS?!?!

Peckinpah died two months after.

Fuck.  Me.

Truth #704

I'm watching Jason Bourne in the movie theater Friday with Ping and TJ, and at a point in the film, Bourne falls from the roof of a five story building onto a brick-paved square, gets up, and escapes before a henchman can reach him.  Not that these movies are realistic, but that went too far.

Me whispering to Ping:  "Nobody can fall five stories like that and walk away."

Ping to me:  "He's Jason Bourne!  He's Matt Damon!  We rescued him from Mars!  He can do anything."
