"My accent was very bad, and my accent was also very strong, which was an obstacle as I began pursuing acting..."
(Hey Arnold! Not you!!!)
He served one year service time in the army in 1965, as was the requirement of all 18 year old Austrian males, winning Junior Mr. Europe the very same year, before going AWOL during basic training to take part in the competition. He spent a week in the slammer for insubordination, crowned as a king, and still to be considered one of the most famous immigrant's to ever land in this country. E-merry-ca...vut a country! Mix a marriage...marry a Kennedy.
The 38th governor of Cali-forn-nia became a self-made man from less than ashes, and began weight training at the age of 15 to win Mr. U @ 22! He also went on to win Mr. Olympia 7X's and was referred to as "THE AUSTRIAN OAK" by none other than the Incredible Hulk. Can you imagine the dynamics? Refer to Pumping Iron.
Now, to determine what could be more irregular...mentally thumb wrestle the country's appetite for action in the 80's with Tom Brokaw at a tennis tournament.
I'm in show business.....why would I test myself under torture in the greatest country in the verld? Typical liberal giveaway speaking in bad puns...handed down as ancient dialect...we hope to bestow nothing but good fortune knowing we've seen our last action hero for the time being...though, we do hope you enjoy the show.
Judgment Day. Arnold said he began the pursuit of weight training to learn more about the power of the mind over the body. (Cleansing breath...aaaand...release!) You are a placid sea turtle in a land of make believe. Steer clear. Have no fear. Sylvester Stallone will play you in the movie. Unannounced to the Film Edition, "R-nuld" was voted best built man of Europe, the category somehow escaping, despite which lent fame instantaneously and offered the illustrious passport to America-the land of opportunity, where Arnold would have the hunger to be more than just a contender...he was a star and about to get rich.
This is a success story of a character who happens to be exuberant.
If technological issues weren't so rampart I would spew more about a businessman, politician, & the original Conan now called the governator, but the computer needs cleaning, so I bid farewell....
Thanks to Blood for an outstanding intro to this week's edition, as always. Yes, this week is all about the Governator! All of the following quotes are taken out of the mouth of Arnold, directly from one of his movies. Your job, if you choose to accept, is to read the quotes (in your best Arnold accent) and try to name the movie it came from. Simple as always! Remember, this isn't brain surgery!
1. "I once showed them, in the Olympics in Greece, how to do it."
2. "I work alone. If anyone comes to you and claims that I sent them.....use this."
3. "Nice day for a walk."
4. "Well then, get in a start paddling!"
5. "Hello Cutie Pie. One of us is in deep trouble."
6. "I did nothing. The pavement was his enemy."
7. "Bring the toy back to the carpet."
8. "How exactly are you going to snap your fingers, after I rip off both of your thumbs?"
9. "You know what you guys are? Nothing but a bunch of sleazy con men, in red suits!"
10. "At 30,000 feet, your heart will freeze and beat no more."
Let's see those answers! Check back throughout the next couple of days to find out where all 10 quotes came from. It's easy to remember, just before you leave our site, just look at the monitor and say, "I'll be back." Okay, that was a bit corny.
See you next week and thanks for playing Name that Film!!!

John Hughes died of a heart attack while taking a walk last week in New York City. He was an influential writer and director of such acclaimed hits as, "Planes, Trains and Automobiles", "The Breakfast Club" and "Mr. Mom" always keeping in the spirit of advocating for the underdog and those less than graceful, like a coming of age Molly Ringwald in 16 Candles. This week's edition will be a tribute idea from a southern belle honoring a legacy that holds all pertinent information in the spotlight for others to see.
Mr. Hughes was 59.
Teen angst! It can't be a dream! How can X number of people have the same dream?Ask every question. We tell no lies. This information must leave this room. Ok? It would devastate my reputation as a dude otherwise. This could be Christmas or another season of perpetual hope and light. You remember laughter? Where do you think you're going? Nobody's leaving. Nobody's walking out on this fun. I don't care if I have to get out on your main street and scribe. If it costs the Film Edition everything we own, if we have to sell two souls to the devil himself, we are going to highlight this idea. You only get one life...
I'm being honest __________, I would expect you to know the difference. How 'bout a nice greasy pork sandwich served in a dirty ashtray? Everything is not an anecdote and discrimination must always be about choice and a level of awareness. You choose things that are loving or amusing or interesting and often forget...you're a miracle! I know.
It goes to show. Ask anyone you know...how many rings in the ancient oak? This edition is about stay puff glow. Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it. Listen...
"Honey, I'd like you to meet ____________, who's got some amusing anecdotes for you..."
I expect a doll to have a little string on the chest, you know, that I ken pull out and have to snap it back with a rush.
...few...that was fun! Can I borrow your underpants for ten minutes? We had a small fire last night , but we caught it in the nick of time.
You see us as you want to see us: in the simplest terms, in the most convenient definitions. Kenny, don't paint your sister!
Would you guys please hurry up, I'm breaking like 30 major laws here. If "they" told you wolverines would make good house pets, would you believe "them"? Naw, course not! You would chuckle and mention sucking the marrow and cackle like a harmless pirate, or perhaps a tomboy who played the drums.
Bueller? Bueller? Bueller? Oh yea?
How 'bout this....you should see the toast, I couldn't even get it thru the door! I'm pretty sure the sausage king of Chicago if I'm not mistaken is...Abe Froman? U go then and sail it toward a shore. I guess this is probably a good time as any to tell you this. I yelled at Kenny for coloring outside the lines! Megan and I are starting to watch the same TV shows and I'm liking 'em! I'm looooosing it! You know everyone in this family has gone total outer limits. Come to think of it...we're all pretty bizarre. Some of us are just better at hiding it, that's all.
No more yankie my wankie. The Donger need food. Maybe I have malaria?
Where are your hands?
Between two pillows...
Those aren't pillows!
Yeah. 220... 221, whatever it takes. Those are the breaks. Habits come hard. This one I couldn't quite fake...you couldn't score her in a million years. Perhaps a little mood music? Danke Schoen...I totally understand that you little guys start out with your woobies and you think they're great... and they are, they're terrific. But pretty soon, a woobie isn't enough. You're out on the street trying to score an electric blanket, or maybe a quilt...next thing you know, you're strung out on bedspreads.
And another thing...
A. You ken never go to far
B. If anyone's getting busted, it's not gonna be by a chump.
"I always preferred to hang out with the outcasts, 'cause they were cooler; they had better taste in music, for one thing, I guess because they had more time to develop one with the lack of social interaction they had!" -John Hughes
Let's hope when you do finally grow up, your heart never dies...
2. "He humiliated my human decency!"
3. "Hey Howard, there's your Chinaman."
4. "Screws fall out all the time. The world's an imperfect place."
5. "My father loves this car more than life itself."
6. "Kids are stupid. I know I was."
7. "This is going to be the very last time that I try to marry you."
8. "She's into Malaka's Dino."
9. "Her first baby...came out sideways. She didn't scream or nothing."
10. "What is that? Dirty Dancing?"

Some of this list seem like a no-brainer. You have to pick up Rivers. He was the top rated passer in the league last year. Maybe there are better quarterbacks, but you don't have one of them. The Chargers simply must pay the man.
As for Sproles, he is not the only one who is in control of his future with the team. As this year's franchise tagged player, a lot will depend on two things. 1. How well does Sproles play this year? And 2. How well does LaDainian Tomlinson play this year. If L.T. slips further down in production and is not healthy when the post season comes around, they can't afford to let Sproles go.
That brings us to Antonio Cromartie. I'm sure that you heard that Cromartie was just fined $2500 for blasting the Chargers "nasty" food on Twitter. He went so far as to say that the food may be the reason they didn't win the Super Bowl yet! Huh? Okay, maybe he was joking, but I won't let him off so easy.

Transparency juss may be the new objectivity if we remember to pass out the correct vials. Don't worry...this list shall remain anonymous and the currents of information will rise and fall like the tide depending on your perspective.
Did you know more people are killed annually by donkeys than die in plane crashes? 'Round here, they take that jackass thing seriously.
Color my world Crayola, who could wrap around this world 4 times over with all their crayons constructed annually, never mind since I was a kid. If the time would become available, I'd like to teach the world to sing, if for only the chance to be free...incidentally, there is a suicide attempt nearly once a week at Niagara Falls, which leads the Film Edition by the hand carefully away with averted eyes.
Well, thanks to blood for another amazing intro to our game this week. It's amazing what the lack of thought can force us to think about. We had no theme this week, so instead you get the miscellaneous ramblings that are all inteded and aimed at the same goal. Pretty deep huh?
So, read the quotes below and figure out what movie they came from. If you are right, I will let you know and add your clip as soon as possible.
2. "Thou we adore men individually, we agree that as a group they're rather stupid."
3. "My life is worth more that a piece of film."
4. "Oh who gives a damn? Stealing all my Oreos, crapping all over the place."
5. "In here?.......Doom."
6. "Do you want the Lord to watch me kick your ass?"
7. "No thank you. I take it black....like my men."
8. "Learn it. Know it. Live it."
9. "I killed your little brother, Moreno. But just remember, he's dead because you weren't looking out for him."
10. "If I wasn't in uniform, I'd split your skull with the butt of this revolver, faster than you could say police brutality."
11. "I strangled him. His body is decomposing in my locker."
Let's see those answers! Remember to check back later if you don't know the movies. Someone will get them and if not, I will leave clues for the really hard ones.
Just for fun....see if you can name the movies that the pics came from!
