These Are A Few Of My Favorite Things

My close friends complain I have too many 'favorite ever' things. They may be right but here's a few of them.

The baked beans scene from Blazing Saddles. Nothing's funnier.

In the words of Butthead from Beavis and Butthead, I've seen frogs come and go but this has to be the coolest frog ever.

C'etait un Rendezvous. Filmed early morning in Paris in the 60's, and at a little over nine minutes, this could be the greatest car film ever made.

Reeves & Mortimer do Mulligan and O'Hare. The first time I ever saw this I laughed so much, I almost shat. You won't.

Psycho Killer by Talking Heads from their movie, Stop Making Sense. David Byrne was the coolest man on the planet when they filmed this. He may still be.

I think about these beautiful opening credits to The Third Man at least once a week and have been since I saw the film at The Lumiere about fifteen years ago. Yes, it could be my favorite ever film.

Tom Waits' Innocent When You Dream. Easily my favorite song.

I don't think the Third Man clip is working. Do yourself a favor and buy the DVD. It will cost under $15.

That frog is the reason I learned ragtime on me pianny at 8 years old. I was a lot slower tho.
