    RIP Wilford Brimley

    Burn in hell 2020.

    RIP. Wilford. I’ll never say diabeetus the same way again. Loved you in The Firm and The Natural.

    Wilford and Quaker Oats were a match made in heaven.

    Hollywood is going to need some new character actors pretty soon.
    I have been in this State for 30 years and I am willing to admit that I am part of the problem.

    I’m not sure you understand what seminal means, that movie was an adaptation of the 1950s movie “The Thing from Another World”. That’s a seminal movie based off a novella.

    Let's just say it was an "early" John Carpenter movie.

    13 years into his career, but almost 40 since then.

    And I guess that I just don't know

    Yeah. A remake is like the opposite of seminal. Although the remake could be argued easily to be better than the original. But tough call. Howard Hawks made awesome movies.

    One might say that swimming in that seminal fluid pool did wonders for him. Wait... did I use it right?

    Not sure what I am missing seeing as a seminal film (i.e a pivotal or landmark film) is one that is influential and important, which John Carpenter's The Thing was (and still is), at least in terms of the horror genre...

    Perhaps I might have phrased my post thusly: "Who can forget Brimley's mustacheless turn in the seminal horror film John Carpenter's The Thing" in order to have avoided the semantical quibbling...

    Anyway, howzabout getting back to celebrating the man and his work?

    You know, your house isn't a democracy. You don't need a search warrant to go in your kids bedroom and find out if he's making dope!

    Now that he's dead and can't defend himself, Wildford Brimley was a cantankerous asshole. College GF made a cake for a wedding she delivered to his utah ranch and he was terrible to her and ultimately refused to pay and yelled at her for being late and made her cry (an hour before the ceremony). She also saw him hit a horse with a shovel.

    When my neighbor told me her dog had the diabeetus and had to take insulin daily, I asked "did she bite Wilford Brimley" and neighbor said "who?". Total waste of a great joke.

    RIP Mr. Brimley.
    It makes perfect sense...until you think about it.

    I suspect there's logic behind the madness, but I'm too dumb to see it.
