The Breakfast Club, still has something to say

Once a week I post about something I’m loving (tv, movies, books, art, photos, romances, authors, or anything else). So here is this week’s For the Love of…

I watched the Breakfast Club earlier this week. Love that movie, even after all these years. Takes me right back to my high school days.

I like stories where people who would normally never be friends or have feelings for each other move past their differences and find common ground, find something special they didn’t even know they were looking for. Of course all that teen angst bonding them together doesn’t hurt.

My current writing project has a lot to do with finding a commonality where you least expect it, so maybe I’m influenced by that right now. It’s on my mind a lot, that’s for sure.

In any case, I did enjoy watching The Breakfast Club, and today I thought I’d share some of my favorite lines from the film…

John Bender: “Sweets. You couldn’t ignore me if you tried.”

Bender: “You load up, you party…”
Brian: “Well, no, we get dressed up, I mean, but we don’t, we don’t get high.”

Bender: “Screws fall out all the time, the world is an imperfect place.”

Bender: “You won’t accept a guy’s tongue in your mouth, and you’re gonna eat that?”

Allison: “I’m not a nymphomaniac. I’m a compulsive liar.”

Brian: “Bender, did you know without trigonometry, there’d be no engineering?”
Bender: “Without lamps, there’d be no light.”

Vernon: “False alarms are really funny, aren’t they. What if your home, what if your family . . . what if your dope was on fire?”
John Bender: “Impossible, sir. It’s in Johnson’s underwear.”

Brian: “Chicks cannot hold dey smoke – dat’s what it is!”

Allison: “Your middle name is Ralph, as in puke, your birth date’s March 12th, you’re 5’9 and a half, you weigh 130 pounds and your social security number is 049380913.”
Andrew: “Wow. Are you psychic?”
Allison: “No.”
Brian: “Well, would you mind telling me how you know all this about me?”
Allison: “I stole your wallet.”

Brian Johnson: “Saturday, March 24,1984. Shermer High School, Shermer, Illinois, 60062. Dear Mr. Vernon, We accept the fact that we had to sacrifice a whole Saturday in detention for whatever it was we did wrong. What we did *was* wrong. But we think you’re crazy to make us write an essay telling you who we think we are. What do you care? You see us as you want to see us – in the simplest terms, in the most convenient definitions. You see us as a brain, an athlete, a basket case, a princess and a criminal. Correct? That’s the way we saw each other at 7:00 this morning. We were brainwashed.”

“And these children that you spit on as they try to change their worlds; are immune to your consultations, they are quite aware of what they are going through.” -David Bowie

Quotes I Love: Love and Passion

Once a week I post a quote I love. It may be related to writing, inspiration, lgbt issues, my own life, or anything else that interests me. So here’s this week’s Quote I Love…

I’ve been working on revisions for my current work-in-progress, Breathe. Part of the goal of this last round of edits was to increase the romantic tension and build up the emotion in every scene.

Focusing on the love and desire in my work puts me in a romantic mood, so today I’m sharing some of my favorite quotes about love and passion.

Hope you enjoy these.

“And sometimes when we touch
The honesty’s too much
And I have to close my eyes and hide
I wanna hold you til I die
Til we both break down and cry
I wanna hold you till the fear in me subsides”
— Dan Hill

“You’re nothing short of my everything.”
— Ralph Block

“We are each of us angels with only one wing.
And we can only fly while embracing each other.”
— Lucian de Croszonza

“We lie in each other’s arms
eyes shut and fingers open and
all the colors of the world
pass through our bodies like strings of fire.”
— Marge Piercy

“Love is composed of a single soul inhabiting two bodies.”
— Aristotle

“You were made perfectly to be loved – and surely I have loved you, in the idea of you, my whole life long.”
— Elizabeth Barrett Browning

“I love you not only for what you are,
But for what I am when I’m with you.”
— Elizabeth Barrett Browning

“What the heart has once owned and had, it shall never lose.”
— Henry Ward Beecher

“Where there is smoke, there’s fire. Where there’s you, there’s desire.”
— Unknown

“Passion… it can hurt so much sometimes, we can hardly stand it. Without passion, maybe we could all have some sort of peace in this life… but then, we’d be hollow. Without passion, we would be dead.”
— Unknown

Aren’t they lovely? Hope you enjoyed them.

Video I Love: Love this song!

Once a week, I post a video I’m loving. Here’s this week’s…

This video is a teaser for an online soap opera-style series called Venice. Venice follows the life of a gay female interior designer. I just started watching the show this weekend.

I love this song. Not sure why, but it puts me in a gushy, romantic mood every time I hear it.

(video embedded below)

You can read more about Venice here: Has anyone watched it yet? What did you think?

Thanks for stopping by,
