You’ve heard the old saying “All I Need To Know I Learned From…”‘. I’m not the first to have noticed and implemented things from films and tv.

Doug-It’s All Been Done Before. In the episode of “Doug En Vogue” Doug is accused of copying his own clothing style. This leads him on a journey for a “totally original look”. This is when we learn that nothing is completely original anymore. You can adapt or fuse new styles of whatever-clothing, music, writing-together but it still won’t be completely new. When you have writer’s (or any other kind of) block you may remember this and stop beating yourself up.

Untamed Heart-Marisa Tomei’s character teaches us that if you spray the perfume then walk into it, you will smell good but not overpowering.

Trainspotting-Drugs are bad, mmkay.

Raiders of the Lost Ark-Why fight someone when you can just shoot them?

A Clockwork Orange-People never really change.

The Big Lebowski-Most things are easier to handle with a “beverage”.

Showgirls-Life is nothing if you don’t have a dream.

To Die For-“What’s the point of doing anything worthwhile if there’s nobody watching?”

Tomcats-Men will do some stupid shit for pussy.

Eurotrip-Yeah, we’re all gonna give up drinking tomorrow.

Don’t Tell Mom The Babysitter’s Dead-Lying your way into a job is possible. You can get rid of a dead body if you pay off the flunkies who work at the funeral home.

Superbad-If something embarrassing happens to you, use as a funny self depracating story to get everyone’s attention.

Striptease-People in the sex industry are usually looked down upon by “regular folks”.

Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure-History is hard to remember.

Will & Grace- You can’t make a gay man straight.

In Her Shoes-Sisters can be total bitches.

Gossip Girl-High school is completely superficial.

The Office-Just because someone is your boss doesn’t make them smarter than you, or a monkey.

The Devil’s Rejects-Everyone likes ice cream. Even serial killers.

High Fidelity-Even if a guy is a complete asshole who cheats on you, you’ll still want him if he’s hot and can talk a good line of bullshit.

The Last Seduction-Sex is a tool.

Titanic-If a guy really loves you he will let you live while he drowns.

Velvet Goldmine-Most of us are groupies at heart.

Detroit Rock City-If you win a radio contest don’t hang up before they get your name, address and phone number.

Clueless-If you try to help someone they may overshadow you.

While watching Two and a Half Men tonight I began ruminating on when I first got into the show. When it first premiered I wasn’t interested in watching the two leads who I had found so attractive in their younger days as these seemingly sad pathetic middle aged men. However I caught a few episodes after my sister & I started living together & became hooked. Was it just the crude humor & frequent half nude Jon Cryer sight gags? I now realize that it went deeper than enjoying a show about someone who drank more than I did at the time. It’s the relationship of the 2 brothers. Unfortunately I can now see many parallels between the show & my own relationship with my little sister. Of course the big thing was that I tried to find a job for a ridiculously long time before anyone would actually hire me during which time I was living there for free. Yes, I was made to feel bad about this then from time to time ala the show just like Alan. It still pops now & then now but I think I’m almost over it. The main difference being that Sheen plays the older, more impressive brother, while my sister is younger but the successful one. The first example isn’t really that impressive, you can skip it if you like. I seem to have run out of steam quicker than I thought. Oh well, still kind of interesting to me.


Successful Jingle Writer-can make a lot of money in a short amount of time./Successful Hairstylist-can make a lot of money (relative to this situation) in a short amount of time.-both artistic jobs

Looks: Undeniably hot/Undeniably hot Love Life: Charlie could have a new woman every night without even trying./I was not the only one who noticed that she seemed to have the kevorka (ala Seinfeld). She could attract almost any man in a 50 miles radius. Once a group of us went to a gay bar for fun (there were 2 or 3 young, attractive gay men in our party) & she was the only one who went home with a guy’s number. Social Skills: Smooth/Smooth

Mediocre Chiropractor-would actually be a good job in real life. Doesn’t get the money because it goes to his wife./Series of Joe Jobs when not Unemployed-Minimum wage that wouldn’t have been that be if they had given me sufficient hours.

Looks: Handsome but not who the eye goes to when standing next to his brother. I mean c’mon this was Ducky, you wanted him too. I wouldn’t kick Jon Cryer out of bed. However you put him next to Charlie Sheen & yeah you might knock him out of the way to get to Sheen./I’m not trying to sound conceited but I’m been told many a time that I’m attractive. However next to my sexier, younger, stacked sister I might as well be wearing a garbage bag.

Love Life: Not a great track record with women & his exes often hate him. Sometimes Charlie would throw him an extra woman if he didn’t want her or already had one./Awful track record with men & all exes hate me. I have been the recipient of a gift in male form.

Social Skills: Socially inept, always says the wrong thing./Socially inept, always says the wrong thing.
