Everything I Know In Life, I Learned From The Movies

Installment #1: How To Have The Best Breakfast Of Your Life.

In order to have the best breakfast of your life, here's what you have to do: First, go find a really shitty job. One that you have no interest in doing or sticking with, but you end up doing it and sticking with it because it's easy and it's a paycheck. Then let's say one day while you're in the middle of that really shitty job, a guy walks in to your the building of your shitty job with a gun. He takes you outside and holds the gun to your head and he asks you "what do you want to do with your life?" You stutter and probably pee and poo yourself a little, and you ask him to repeat himself. He asks you again, "what do you want to do with your life?" And then you tell him that you always wanted this other job, but schooling for that other job is really expensive. But then this guy tells you that you need to quit this shitty job and go to school for this much better job. In fact he says that he's coming back tomorrow and if you're still there, he'll kill you. So you run away and you run home. Then the next morning you wake up and you have the best breakfast of your life because you know you're not working in that shitty job anymore.

Thanks Fight Club.

OMG, here I am coming to invite you to the Club 'Thon and you're all "Squish tell me what you can do!" Allow me to give you the nitty-Gritty, Piper. [Oh and if you're a facebooker, email me yer face... book handle.]

On the week of November 29th to December 5th, 2010, I will be hosting an good old fashioned Blog-A-Thon to re-inaugurate the 1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die Blog Club.

I am writing you today to invite you to contribute a post on the first film on the epic 1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die List [http://www.filmsquish.com/guts/?q=taxonomy/term/53/9], George Méliès' A Trip To The Moon (1902) aka Le voyage dans la lune. Whether you are a new or old Club member, or simply want to join in on this Blog-O-Thon, with a new or archived post on the subject of A Trip To The Moon (1902), you're invited!

One of the many great things about A Trip To The Moon is that this full 14-minute short is available everywhere for viewing. I've put a couple links for you of the complete film at the bottom of the page.

If you're interested, drop me a link or a line through my site (www.filmsquish.com), and feel free to spread the word!

Un Voyage dans la lune:
Alternate Link:

And of course the Club shall continue ad nauseum, and you can include some archive stuff, as stated before.
