Welcome to Con Air

When I was little I was really into Country Music Television. So naturally all the classic 90's songs are in my heart. Lately I have had Trisha Yearwood's "How do I live" stuck in my head. When I think of that song I think of the music video. When I think of the music video I think of how it was nothing but shots of trisha on an airfeild and clips from the movie Con Air. So I decided to watch Con Air after work tonight. I hopped over to the library which was open late and rented Con Air on nothing other than VHS. Haydee, my favorite library assistant due to her lack of facial expressions and voice tone inflection, checked me out with a judgemental-ness about her...just kidding, she was as serious as always. Side note: I stopped noticing that Haydee dosn't where her nametag anymore, so whenever I see her... naturally I think to myself, "hello, Haydee". But then I noticed her lack of nametag and thought to myself, "what if I said hello to her out loud? She would find it really odd that a strange red-head with an affinity for corny 90's flicks knows her name." But I digress.
Upon watching the movie I was confused and enchanted by it's serious dramatic flair interspersed with appearances by Dave Chappelle and a character whose name I would later find out to be "Sally can't dance".

Here are a couple of memorable quotes courtesy of IMDB.

Cameron Poe:"Hey! My mama lives in a trailer!"
Bedlam: "Make a move and the bunny gets it."
Cameron Poe: Put... the bunny... back... in the box.
Cameron Poe:[after killing Bedlam in self-defense, looking disappointed at Bedlam's corpse] Why couldn't you put the bunny back in the box?
Masterpeice? I think so...

ps: "The Bunny" in question...right here. I am not joking.

I don't really remember that movie - I know I saw it a long time ago. But I did rent Romancing the Stone at the library a few months ago. Same cheezy drama/comedic balance. The bad guy gets his hand bitten off by a crocodile. Awesomeness.
