Today's inspirational quote from Point Break, placed here, on Blogtown, as a reminder to set aside your Friday night/get your tickets for Hecklevision: Point Break, which was on NPR and shit:
INT. DAY. SOCAL SURF SHOP—FBI AGENT JOHNNY UTAH (Keanu Reeves) is purchasing a garish, first-timer surfboard from a snotty but well-meaning SURF SHOP KID who appears to be seven years old.
Surf Shop Kid: Hey man, a lot of guys your age are learning to surf. It's cool. There's nothing wrong with it.
FBI Agent Johnny Utah: I'm 25!
Surf Shop Kid: That's what I'm saying. It's never too late. Hope you stick with it. Surfing's the source, man. Can change your life. Swear to god.
Okay, fine, ANOTHER!
EXT. DAY. BEACHSIDE ROAD—FBI AGENT JOHNNY UTAH (UNDERCOVER) is walking with a SHIRTLESS BODHI (Patrick Swayze) after the two have beat the hell out of some dickhead surfers who tried to start some shit.
Bodhi (dejectedly): They only live to get radical. They don't understand the sea, so they'll never get the spiritual side of it.
This Friday, at 7:30 pm at the Hollywood Theatre (4122 NE Sandy), Point Break will be screened in world-famous Hecklevision, in which you'll be able to silently text your best heckles and commentary from your seat, then watch them pop up instantly on the very same screen upon which FBI Agent Johnny Utah will undertake a long and violent—but very beautiful—quest toward enlightenment. It will change your life. Swear to god.
