It's A Wonderful Life - A Quote a Day

Merry Christmas!! I hope that all of you are having a great holiday and no matter how or what you are celebrating I sincerely hope that you are happy and spending today with people you love. 2009 has been a great year for me, not the least of which has to do with this blog that I started only three months ago, so if you are reading this, than thank you so much for doing so. I love writing this blog and I'm definitely in this for the long haul, and I really do appreciate all of you for joining me in this so Thank You. For Chirstmas today I'm going to be sharing my two favorite quotes from this film. Enjoy.

Harry Bailey (surrounded by the townspeople): A toast to my big brother George: The richest man in town.

Clarence: Remember George, No man is a failure who has friends.
Merry Christmas everybody.


It's a Wonderful Life - A Quote a Day

Clarence: Your brother, Harry Bailey, broke through the ice and was drowned at the age of nine.

George Bailey: That's a lie! Harry Bailey went to war - he got the Congressional Medal of Honor, he saved the lives of every man on that transport.

Clarence: Every man on that transport died! Harry wasn't there to save them, because you weren't there to save Harry.
Clarence: You see George, you've really had a wonderful life. Don't you see what a mistake it would be to just throw it away?


It's A Wonderful Life - A Quote a Day

So I decided today that since I'm going to be busy getting ready for Christmas and then, you know, enjoying my Christmas, I'm going to simply post a new quote everyday from It's A Wonderful Life all the way through Christmas. To get it started today, I'm going to actually post two quotes. Enjoy!

George Bailey: "Just remember this, Mr. Potter, that this rabble you're talking about... they do most of the working and paying and living and dying in this community. Well, is it too much to have them work and pay and live and die in a couple of decent rooms and a bath? Anyway, my father didn't think so. People were human beings to him. But to you, a warped, frustrated old man, they're cattle. Well, in my book he died a much richer man than you'll ever be."

And here's the other one, one of my absolute favorite quotes from this film:

Clarence: "Strange, isn't it? Each man's life touches so many other lives. When he isn't around he leaves an awful hole, doesn't he?"

2 Days Until Christmas!


The Curious Case of the Cap & the Bat

Sychronicity, not just a plot device in a Grant Morrison JLA story arc, but it is actually the term for the coincidence of events that seem to be meaningfully related that are causally unrelated. Essentially, a fancy term for when two events that are unrelated to each other that then through accident or luck become very much alike. Something like, say, the plot lines of two different comic books from two different comic book companies that somehow end up following almost the same exact story-arc as each other. What stories have lined up, and what does it mean? Why does this kind of thing happen? Hit the jump for the article.
