My vaccum cleaner is back home after a nearly 30 stay in the repair shop. When I went in to get it today, I was scoping out the used espresso machines and wondering if I should make that happen in my microkitchen. Do we really need a microwave and toaster? Not if an espresso machine could use that space.
They sell parts at the appliance repair shop, of course. The whole time I couldn’t help but think of the Brave Little Toaster. I looked on you tube for a link to the scene where the blender is shivering and hiding from the shop guy and then gets gutted and used for parts, but instead I found this fascinating (and brief) expose.
But, hey! the blender scene is listed in this parental guide for the movie. Parental guides for movies = very funny reading. Especially for films like Night of the Living Dead (
We see a girl zombies butt for a very short amount of time. Rad!) and Pulp Fiction (
265 uses of the f-word and its derivatives Impressive!) and Goodfellas (300 uses of the f-word and its derivatives WINNER!) Or one of my favorite movies, The Goonies (A dead body continuously falls on top of a child, who is trapped in a
freezer. Numerous skeletons discovered during movie, including one with
daggers int its eye sockets. All typos courtesy of original reviewers.) No one has warned parents about the seriously frightening monkeys in the Wizard of Oz yet, (I still have nighmares sometimes about them. *shiver*) but they do have this warning on the link to the hidden plot synopsis warning! may contain spoilers.
I’m lucky to be so easily entertained.
I remember watching the Brave Little Toaster one Saturday afternoon long ago…and sobbing my eyes out. PMS maybe? I’ve never watched it again.
I want to be the person who gets paid to count the expletives in Tarrantino films.
I loved that movie -made me cry too!
