Texan Assholes

Or… to put it another way:

“I was sick a’you a long time before that. You keep no check on your appetites… makes you not fit to live with.”

–Melvin Douglas to Paul Newman “Hud.”

 A few of my favorite Texan Movie Clips in Honour of Texas Independence Day.

(Not all of us are assholes)

Hope you like them.

Please tell me of your favorite Texan – Based Movie. I know I have missed many… Bonnie and Clyde? Others?

Outside the sun is up

And the wind

Blows me like a paper cup

Down the highway

–B.W. Stevenson, Texan

I know there are some poets out there. Run with this one.

    I have seen the latest True Grit.. but not the original…

    *ponders then adds that to the list too*

    Actually, I think I might own that and just have not yet watched it..

  2. Best John Wayne film: True Grit.
    Thanks for reading.
    Scroll down; it ain’t all bout film. (my site) The rest is mostly bullshit, but decent bs. Hahahha

  3. The Alamo is one I have not seen either though it has been raised as a suggestion SEVERAL times by my bestie.. (huge John Wayne Fan)

  4. No gentle wind had carried
    My fateful eventful life
    On rolling tumbleweed
    I’ve ridden off
    Through Texan byways…

    …Sorry, you’ll have to go the next one… I have to go and grab weeds from the yard for salad.:-)

  5. Confession time: I have never seen “The Alamo” assuming you are speaking of the John Wayne version.

    Charlie Wilson? Yep. He was my congressman when I had my Tropical Fish store in Nacogdoches in the Eighties. We all loved Charlie. Tom Hanks did him well. I love that movie.

    Paris? I hate Paris (Texas) Love Paris France

    No Country for Old Men? Yes. Great movie. Scared the shit outta me.
