See what I did there?
Hullo! I'm Andrew. I'm a fan of all things pop culture, and a contributor to A Bright Wall in a Dark Room (which, statistically, is why you're here). This is how I fill my time these days. Thanks for visiting. All the BWDR pieces I've written are here.

burbanked said: I just rewatched TRUE GRIT recently as well, so yours was a delightful read this morning. I was also taken and amazed by the language and its poetry and the wonderful bit near the end when grown-up Mattie chastises the roadshow guy for not standing out of respect for her. And "There is no clock on my business!" is something I might start saying to my kids when they bother me in the can.

Quotations from this film that I would tickled to add to my lexicon:

  • I do not entertain hypotheticals. The world itself is vexing enough.
  • Not only does he continue to talk, but he spills the banks of English.
  • You are not LaBoeuf.
  • Keep your seat, trash.
  • Who worked you over with the ugly stick?
  • That is no part of it.
  • That weighs but little with me.
  • I’m not paying for talk. I can get all the talk I need and more at the Monarch Boarding House.
  • Ever stalwart.
  • Fill your hand, you son of a bitch!
  • You’re being hoo-rah’d.
  • I extend my hand.
