Time flies. I know that is no deep thought and it's not new, either.
30 years, though? Are you being serious? The first Indiana Jones movie came out 30 years ago???? How old does that make me??? Well, almost 46. I'm not shy about telling my age.
It doesn't seem that long ago that I sat in the movie theater and watched the movie. And it doesn't seem that long ago that I listened to the soundtrack, lying on my bed with shut eyes while the images of the movie floated through my head. Wait, the soundtrack is on a record, yes, vinyl. I guess it was that long ago then.
To honor the 30th anniversary of "Raiders of the Lost Ark" here's another quote from it.
Indy just barely escaped the Hovitos in the opening scene, and alas ....
"There's a big snake in the plane, Jock!"
"Oh, that's just my pet snake Reggie."
"I hate snakes, Jock. I hate'em."
"Come on, show a little backbone, will ya?"
Of course those of us who have watched the Raiders about 30 times over the years know where this will lead ... to my very favorite quote from this movie ;-)
Happy anniversary, Indy!
P.S. Dave Lowe is doing a Raiders-of-the-Lost-Blog-A-Thon on his great online comic website Para Abnormal this month. If you are a fan of the movie, check it out. If you like black humor with a twist, stay there and have a look at the other great comics. Yes, I'm a fan.
