dazed & confused

Dazed and Confused‘ is a movie made in the 90s, starring (to name a few) Jason London, Wiley Wiggins, Matthew McConaughey, Joey Lauren Adams and Milla Jovovich.  The movie takes place on the last day of school in May 1976. It focuses on the relationship between the kids soon to be entering high school and the new seniors who are eager to finally rule the school. The costumes are fantastic and it’s a pretty funny movie to watch, not a whole lot of substance but definitely an enjoyable flick.

It was the last day of school in 1976, a time they’d never forget… if only they could remember.

I did it when I was a freshman, and you’ll do it when you’re seniors. but you’re doing great. Now fry like bacon, you little freshman piggies. Fry!

Behind every good man there is a woman, and that woman was Martha Washington, man, and everyday George would come home, she would have a big fat bowl waiting for him, man, when he come in the door, man, she was a hip, hip, hip lady, man.

Yeah, well, listen. You ought to ditch the two geeks you’re in the car with now and get in with us. But that’s all right, we’ll worry about that later. I will see you there. All right?

You guys know anything about a party?
No, sir.

Chicks don’t wanna here anything, man. The girls in our classes, they’re all prudes, man. It’s the girls ahead of us, man. They were wild! Our class, they’re worthless, man!

Hey you guys know what that song is about? Its about the aliens. We’re the aliens man, we’re the savages. We’re the savages man.

 I may play ball next fall, but I will never sign that. Now me and my loser friends are gonna head out to buy Aerosmith tickets. Top priority of the summer.

[talking about Gilligan’s Island] Think about it. You’re basically alone on a deserted island with two readily available women. One a seductive sex-godess type, the other a healthy girl-next-door type with a nice butt. So guys have it all, the madonna and the whore. Women get nothing; we get a geek, an overweight middle-aged guy, some nerdy scientific type, I mean…

I’d like to quit thinking of the present, like right now, as some minor, insignificant preamble to somethin’ else.

Watch them fly… away

Man, it’s the same bullshit they tried to pull in my day. If it ain’t that piece of paper, there’s some other choice they’re gonna try and make for you. You gotta do what Randall “Pink” Floyd wants to do, man. Let me tell you this, the older you do get the more rules they’re gonna try to get you to follow. You just gotta keep on livin’ man, L-I-V-I-N.

So if any of you haven’t seen this movie, I suggest you do that!
