the wuc bytes – the matador

Point one, I’m obsessed with movies. Check!

Point two, with the exception of my resplendent family, I’m surrounded by movie heathens who are fucking clueless to my (many) cinematic references. It hurts me deep in my special place when I make golden, and I say golden, jokes (be it Goonies, Sixteen Candles or Scarface) and am met with scorn and contempt (aka blank stares and limp smiles).

I conclude that I’ll have to get my jollies all on my wucsome. Thus, I herald a new category designed to share my favourite movie moments with you – the wuc bytes.

Pause for warm joo-joo pleasure and a jaunty side-kick.

I start with The Matador. Pierce Brosnan is hilare. I saw this with my brother and after this scene, I remember him whispering (like a child seeing his father’s flaws for the first time):

“James Bond! What happened?” 

Wuccadoodies.

About the wuc

I'm a chick living in Australia, working for the man. I hate office work with a passion usually reserved for James Cameron, but somehow I ended up with a career behind a desk, stapling my forehead at random intervals.

  1. I enjoyed that movie but I have to say I’d forgotten it.

    Goonies and Sixteen Candles are two of the best movies of all time. You have good taste! :-)

  3. I didn’t know anyone’d seen The Matador? Loved. And loved again.

    • I know, right. Maybe just you, me and my bro? Whenever I mention it, people give me blank stares.

    • I saw it, also thought it was a low point for Pierce Brosnan. I love movies too and I write books: The Stone Cutter Genius is the new one. See book trailer on youtube, facebook, or my blog arthurcolalegendarytales.wordpress.com
      I live in Wisconsin, USA

      • Really? That’s interesting. I never liked Brosnan until I saw him in this. I love that he sent himself up, takin’ Bond to mental breakdown.

  4. I see you are reading S. King’s “On Writing”. I did a bit on King and the similarity between his “Under the Dome” and “The Simpsons Movie” . In case that piques your interest, it’s “Those Amazing Humans, #67”. And, speaking of movies and your cine obsession, you might be interested in my similar obsession in “The Artist As Movie Guy” in which I briefly describe my decade of managing a small independent movie theater in the wilds of Northern California.

  5. You’re a good writer. You should be writing more than just posts, if you aren’t already. Who knows, it could be your ticket out of the office one day.

  6. I’m going into Sherlock mode after reading a couple of your blogs (which I enjoyed) and extrapolating that you are a cute boyish/gamin, thirty something, fluent in pop culture and film references, witty, daring (word-wise) and not opposed to smearing offal on the envelope of good taste when it feels good. That’s all well and good, quite good enough for me to want to read more. What I can’t figure out is, how do you manage to stimulate the amount of comments I see on your blog. Granted I am a crusty, sixty-seven year old retired teacher, with limited writing and drawing skills (you liked my Jim Morrison drawing) but I think some of my posts are provocative enough to rate a like or comment. I’ve been blogging for about a year now. I committed to drawing one sketch a day (with accompanying description) for a year on my “Those Amazing Humans” project.. I am on #362. I have gotten 62 comments and a couple of likes during this span. What the freak am I doing wrong. Shouldn’t I be famous by now! I don’t have that much time left. Your thoughts?

  7. (I just saw you quoted Sunset Boulevard in another one of your posts. My mistake. You’re just as doomed as I am.)

wot say you?
