Y'know what I was thinking about today? I was thinking 'bout those street gangs they had down in Los Angeles, those Crips and those Bloods? I was thinking about that buncha new laws they came up with, in the 1980's I think it was, to combat those street-gangs, those Crips and those Bloods. And, if I remember rightly, the gist of what those new laws were saying was if you join one of these gangs, and you're running with 'em, and down the block one night, unbeknownst to you, one of your fellow Crips, or your fellow Bloods, shoot up a place, or stab a guy, well then, even though you didn't know nothing about it, and even though you may've just been standing on a streetcorner minding your own business, what these new laws said was you're still culpable. You're still culpable, by the very act of joining those Crips, or those Bloods, in the first place. Which got me thinking, Father, that whole type of situation is kinda like your Church boys, ain't it? You've got your colors, you've got your clubhouse, you're, for want of a better word, a gang. And if you're upstairs smoking a pipe and reading a bible while one of your fellow gang members is downstairs fucking an altar boy then, Father, just like those Crips, and just like those Bloods, you're culpable. Cos you joined the gang, man. And I don't care if you never did shit or you never saw shit or you never heard shit. You joined the gang. You're culpable. And when a person is culpable to altar-boy-fucking, or any kinda boy-fucking, I know you guys didn't really narrow that down, then they kinda forfeit the right to come into my house and say anything about me, or my life, or my daughter, or my billboards. So, why don't you just finish your tea there, Father, and get the fuck outta my kitchen.

Another fantastic movie escape... I found out it grossed more in its 1st weekend than the entire run of Justice League so it's new but I feel like I'm late to the party already... highly recommend, interesting mix of ancient with science fiction... off the hook CGI to boot!!!

My top quote truisms:

“Just because something works doesn’t mean it can’t be improved.”

“In times of crisis, the wise build bridges, while the foolish build barriers. We must find a way to look after one another as if we were one single tribe.”

And my fave... Bad ass sister to her brother the King:  

“When you said you would take me to California for the first time, I thought you meant Coachella.”

If you want to know what the Lord God thinks of money, just look at those to whom he gives it. Man and the Gospel (1865) by Thomas Guthrie "and you may know howlittle God thinks of money by observing on what bad and contemptible characters he often bestows it."   (the actual line in the movie is a truncated version of this... something like "if you want to know what God thinks of money, see who he gives it to"}

I did not expect this... formidable!  Go see it, truly.

A fellow will remember a lot of things you wouldn't think he'd remember. You take me. One day, back in 1896, I was crossing over to Jersey on the ferry, and as we pulled out, there was another ferry pulling in, and on it there was a girl waiting to get off. A white dress she had on. She was carrying a white parasol. I only saw her for one second. She didn't see me at all, but I'll bet a month hasn't gone by since that I haven't thought of that girl.

Joey: Somebody's comin', Pa!

Joe Starrett: Well, let him come.

Caiaphas: We've been sitting on the fence for far too long.

Jesus: Why should I die? Would I be more noticed than I ever was before? Would the things I've said and done matter anymore?

Judas: You sad pathetic man! See where you've brought us to? Our ideals die around us, and all because of you!

Joe Starrett: Looks like your friends are a little late. What are the Ryker boys up to this time?

Shane: Ryker?

Joe Starrett: That's what I said.

Shane: I wouldn't know a Ryker from your Jersey cow.

Joe Starrett: Don't forget to close the gate on your way out.

Pontius Pilate: Who is this broken man cluttering up my hallway? Who is this unfortunate?

Soldier: Someone Christ, King of the Jews.

Joe Starrett: I wouldn't ask you were you're bound?

Shane: One place unknown. Some place I never been.
