Happy Thanksgiving

Delmar O'Donnell: We thought you was a toad!
Pete: What?
Delmar O'Donnell: [leaning in, speaking slower] We thought you was a toad!

I've been meaning to watch O Brother, Where Art Thou? since the end of summer and I STILL haven't done so. I honestly don't know what I'm waiting for; all I have to do is put the movie in the DVD player, press play, and enjoy. It's an easy task, but for some reason it doesn't seem like the right time to watch it. 

O Brother, Where Art Thou has been one of my favourite movies since it came out in 2000. It stars George Clooney, John Turturro, and Tim Blake Nelson as three fugitives who escape from jail in search of buried treasure before it gets lost to an approaching lake. They run into some interesting characters along the way, one of them being John Goodman, and even release a hit single. No matter how many times I watch this movie I can still laugh at the same parts and find news ones to giggle to. Oh, did I mention that it's directed by the Cohen brothers? 

To satisfy my craving for now, since I'm in Port Colborne for the weekend and the movie is in Toronto, I read the memorable quotes on Imdb. I also Youtube'd the trailer. 

Yours truly.
