Pop Culture Meme

I've been working on this meme for a while. I got it from Millie I've concluded that I'm pop culturally illiterate and my embarrassing confessions are here for the world to see.

FAVORITE SONG INTRO: Probably anything Meatloaf. They are either catchy sounding and get me hyped, or they are completely, inexcusably ridiculous and I get a good laugh. Hot Summer's Night is one of the latter. Oh yeah, and most ABBA songs too.

FAVORITE MOVIE QUOTE: I could never choose one. Ones that come readily to mind, "Gopher, Everett?" "Damn, we're in a tight spot!" "Well, ain't this place a geographical oddity, 2 weeks from everywhere!" "It is a fool who looks for logic in the chambers of the human heart" All of those are from O Brother, Where Art Thou. A perfectly quotable movie. Wedding Singer, Steele Magnolias, and Napoleon Dynamite are the other most quotables in my book. "They were co-o-o-o-nes!" "My parents died when I was 12, would you like to bring that up too? No, why would I do that? I don't know." "Oh, he's such a gentleman, I bet he empties the sink before he pees in it!" "Oh Weeza, you know I love you more than my luggage." And finally, "Napoleon, like anyone can even know that." "...because you've been ruining everybody's lives and eating all our steak." "I said come down here and see what happens if you try and hit me" "Yeah, it looks pretty sweet. It looks awesome. That suit, it's... it's incredible" "Tina, you fat lard, come get some DINNER!... Tina, eat. Food. Eat the FOOD! " "Easy, I've already looked into it for myself."

Um, is that excessive? I think so.

FAVORITE MUSICAL CHARACTER: I saw Reba on Broadway doing Annie Get Your Gun. Until that point, although a HUGE Reba fan in my youth, I had yet to be impressed by her acting. I was impressed with this. I fell in love with the character. My 3 and a half year old sings, "Anything I can do you can do better..."
I do love Maria---how can you help but to love her!
I also can't watch My Fair Lady enough, I love Eliza.

FAVORITE 80'S SONG: So, this may have been the 90's, I can't remember. Every year my hometown has a Labor Day weekend Festival/Carnival thingy. I was probably in 6th or 7th grade and "Pour Some Sugar On Me" came over a loud speaker. There was a STAMPEDE, I kid you not, of teenage girls, 12-16 years old. I have no idea where they were running to---the speakers? It was the most insane thing I had seen up to that point in my life, and still ranks high, two decades later. That song was so catchy, but so naughty. In the 80's I was even more pop culturally illiterate. I liked Tiffany, New Kids on The Block, and Whitney Houston. Whitney was so awesome before Bobby and "Crack is wack!"

FAVORITE HAIR BAND: I loved Poison. And Bon Jovi. I still love Bon Jovi. I don't know why.

FAVORITE REALITY SERIES: I used to really get into the Bachelor, but I just can't do it anymore. There was this show called "Joe Schmo" I think they only did it once. It is one of the very few shows in mine and J's marriage where we cleared our schedule to watch it. I got in on "My Big Fat Obnoxious Fiance" by accident once, I thought the premise was lame, and one lonely night, ended up watching it. I have NEVER laughed so hard at tv, as I did at that. The actor fiance was HILARIOUS. Now I like the Home Makeover shows and that wife swap stuff because there's always a crazy person on, and I love watching crazy people.

WORST CELEBRITY NICKNAME EVER: So, the first time I ever heard J.Lo, I thought it was the most ridiculous thing I had ever heard. But now, it's so mainstream, it doesn't even register in my mind as odd. But I still get a huge kick out of people who imitate it with their own names. For some reason, that never gets old for me.

T, I'm tagging you because well, I'm interested. :)

I totally love "Oh brother where art thou?". "We're in a tight spot", "We...thought...you...was...a...toad!" (just thinking about thta one makes me cry-laughing, "Mrs. Hogwallop up and R-U-N-N-O-F-T" HA!.

I love to watch crazy people (makes me feel better about myself), I have never watched wife swap or the other one, but there was that one about the crazy eyed lady ranting about "gargoyles!" being a G-warrior and things being "dork sided" and sorry, I just HAD to watch it :D

J.Lo. K-fed and P Diddy, barf.

Oh, she's such a first-commenter. It's sickening.

You did a great job with the meme and you are NOT culturally illiterate. Thanks for playing.

Bon Jovi is such a flaming liberal that I really can't stand even looking at him. LOL...

"Pour Some Sugar On Me" is from '88 or '89, I think, and THEY rock. I love the drummer and point him out to the kids whenever we hear them on the radio. "Did you know this guy's playing the drums with ONE ARM and his feet?" "Yeah, Mom...."

If you like watching the crazy folks, Wife Swap is your show!

Thanks for reminding me that it has been a while since I have used a Napoleon quote. I will have to work on that.

Dude. I'm pop culture dunce. But I'll give it a whirl...

your quotes are hilarious. it also brought to mind the ad nauseum quoting/re-enacting of So I Married An Axe Murderer at C&H - I finally had to see the movie and I decided you guys were funnier quoting it than the movie itself was. :)
