First weekend proper with a slight break. Needed a little motivation. Mickey is always good for some motivation. "Get up you BUM @#! Cause Mickey loves you..." He was rocking the white earbuds before Apple IIs were out. Mickey vs Miyagi deathmatch, my $$$ is on Miyagi for the win, Mickey for the wisecracks. In fact, they'd make a better tag team. Mickey taunts, while Miyagi opens the can of kicka++.
Anyway, one of my favorite lines in Rocky (I have few hundred in the first movie alone, don't lose sleep) is Rock at the heavy bag and female fans run up to him. Mickey runs them off and then forbids the "Stallion" from loving on the ladies specifically "that pet store dame... WOMEN WEAKEN LEGS." Maybe if Balboa had have laid off Adrian he actually would have cared he lost to Apollo by split decision.
So when paid gigs rain on my parade, I think about good old Burgess Meredith sporting the moth ball scented cardigan and scully tilted to the side making shaky fists over in the corner. Rather than give 110% half the time its chasing chickens, raw egg white cocktails, and tying my nikes together to achieve balance. I get to make art for $. Won't throw in the towel. Ever.
"You stop this fight, I'll kill you!"
