OK - confession time. My absolute all time favourite actor is Lee Marvin. He's ace! He has so many good lines but the one's in Paint Your Wagon are some the best for me 'cos they're so funny. It's set during the californian gold rush. Lee plays Ben Rumpson - an unbeliever, a gambling, drinking, bawdy gold miner who has no respect for civilisation, or religion (or farmers). Here are some of the quotes I love: A farmer falls down a hill and breaks his neck. Ben leads his funeral: BEN :God, we pass on to you the body and soul of this nameless peckerhead. Well, at least he went quick, and he ain't going to suffer scurvy, the dysentery, spotted fever or the cholera not to mention other maladies contracted in consort with low women. Ha ha! Or waste years digging in the dirt and finding dirt, like l have... And seeing how he survived all that, he could have been hit by timber, fall down a shaft, starved, get murdered or committed suicide on Christmas Eve. What l mean, God, is you don't seem to have no particular pity for your children when they livin', so that's why we're asking you to be a little kinder to them when they dead. So, with all due reverence, Lord, we pass on to you this corncracker's body and soul to take him and to keep him...[spots gold in the ground]I STAKE THIS CLAIM FOR ME AND MY NEW PARDNER OVER THERE, WHATEVER HIS NAME IS!!!! Forever and ever. Amen!Ben's wife announces that she's in love with Ben AND in love with his gold mining partner. They discuss becoming a happily married triple. BEN:Out here we make up our own rules as we go along... ...if two pardners want to share a wife, why not? This ain't Michigan. lt's gold country. Why, hell, it's the golden country! Untouched and uncontaminated by human hands! It's the one place where people can look civilisation in the eye and spit! You don't have to please anybody, and you don't have to love thy neighbour. You leave the bastard alone! lt's wild, human and free, and all over this nation, they preach against it every Sunday. But l don't think God's listening. You know why? Because he's HERE, in GLORIOUS California!They find respectable church-going families half frozen, stuck in the mountains and they bring them to their debauched little town to look after them. They nurse them back to health. PARSON: (bursting through the door of Ben's cabin)l'm here to pray for the poor unfortunate victims...BEN:Oh no you don't parson, these folks have suffered enough. Why don't you do that outside where God can hear you better, cos l'll be talking in here...(slams door) Ben's wife convinces Ben to move out of the cabin while the respectable people are around so they don't realise she has 2 husbands BEN: (to his pardner)You listen to me. She's got a bad case of the respectabilities. ln a few days she'll be burning up in a fever of virtue... And then look out... Because it's been my experience that there's nothing more ruthless or treacherous than a genuine GOOD WOMAN.Conversation with one of the respectables: WOMAN:- You should read the Bible, Mr RumpsonBEN:l HAVE read the Bible ma'am.WOMAN:And didn't that discourage you from drinking?BEN:No, but it sure killed my appetite for reading...And the best one (though you probably have to see it to really appreciate it). The parson falls through one of the streets into Ben's secret gold mine below the town. Ben is sat at a table. The parson falls at his feet. Ben stands up from the table and holds out his bottle of whiskey: BEN:Hello parson! WELCOME TO HELL!!!I just love this film!

In exchange for obedience, Christianity promises salvation in an afterlife; but in order to elicit obedience through this promise, Christianity must convince people that they need salvation, that there is something to be saved from. Christianity has nothing to offer a happy person living in a natural, intelligible universe. If Christianity is to gain a motivational foothold, it must declare war on earthly pleasure and happiness, and this, historically, has been its precise course of action. In the eyes of Christianity, woman(man) is sinful and helpless in the face of God, and is potential fuel for the flames of hell. Just as Christianity must destroy reason before it can introduce faith, so it must destroy happiness before it can introduce salvation.

Kinda Weird Lee Marvin, But I Still Love It!





Oh God - I'm going to get a bit emotional now. I just love that song!

Mud can take you prisoner
And the plains can bake you dry
Snow can burn your eyes
But only people make you cry...


They don't show it on that clip but just before he launches into that song he says something that I've said many times since I was a child (I never live in one place very long before I up sticks and leave - nomad that's me).
This is the line that when I hear it the hairs on the back of my neck stand up on end and I just want to leave everything, pack my rucksack and set off down the road towards the horizon.

"I'm an ex-citizen of nowhere.
And sometimes I get mighty homesick..."


Anyway - on a more light hearted note - celebrity deathmatch GlennReb and Lee Marvin - what an idea!

Marvin would totally kick Reb's ass! He was bloody hard in real life - he had to fight hand to hand combat - with just a knife - in the war.

I reckon he'd start with that "Marvin starts with the knife. But wait - what's Glenn doing? He's run behind a group of tall, muscular - and rather attractive - lycra-clad men. Oh yes - it's his JESUS GYM BUDDIES! Watch yourself Lee!"

The late 60's and the early 70's were the Golden Age of Westerns and War Movies.




I thought Clint Eastwood's Flags Of Our Fathers was absolutely top notch as a war movie. It came out last winter.



A great-big can of whoop-ass is about to be opened on GlennReb, even though Lee is dead, right? He's dead, ain't he? It doesn't matter, I know that Lee can kick Glenn's ass all the way to Brooklyn and back...




If someone does this, be sure to let me know; I want to see that smirking butt wipe get wiped and flushed.

"If I have any appeal at all, it's to the fellow who takes out the garbage."--Lee Marvin"And don't you forget it!!"--SquidwardLee Marvin got shot in the ass in WWII. Now he's buried next to the late, great heavyweight boxing champ, Joe Lewis, in Arlington National Cemetery. More to come about Lee when I sober up...Just look who are members... I know we have at least one Tom Waits fan here. I'm a Neil Young fan myself...
