Gone With the Wind vs. Twilight

Here I am - working diligently on Davey's truck in the snow.

Which means the hood is propped up, but I'm inside watching "Gone With the Wind" with my sister.

I forgot what a good ass movie this is!

This is how romance should still be portrayed. Mind games, pride, clashing personalities, roaming desires, and the occasional prostitute. In a word - attainable and realistic.

I think that people set themselves up for failure when they strive for the "romance" found in movies today - especially for the youngins.


Fucking Twilight is what people want. I just saw the first Twilight recently and still haven't seen the second.

While I enjoyed it more than Matt advises I should admit to - I don't watch it and swoon.

I don't think now that is true love.

Know what I think? I sit and watch and wonder:

"Hey. This guy has been claiming to be 17 since 1918. So he must have been born in 1901 which really makes him 109. What does a 109 year old man have in common with a 16 or 17 year old girl?"

Everyone looks at Edward Cullen and says: Ooooh. What a sexy sexy vampire!

I look at Edward Cullen and think: Ewwww. What a dirty dirty old man.

Well, back to the car fixin'
fiddle dee dee.


  1. Hahaha! Picture placement couldn't have been better!

  2. Great balls of fire I love it! And you're criticism of twilight? Quite frankly, I don't give a damn ;)

  3. well i'm glad you're watching twilight cuz i'm not ever gonna effin do it! not since that capitol D (who i later discovered was FAKING his scottish accent) said I looked like a vampire because I was "dressed nice with a leather trenchcoat and black hair" . . . I mean, I know he was an IDIOT but that doesn't make it ok! but i might watch it if it actually were a dirty old man and not some ugly person pretending to be cool
