Jump Cuts Take 2

Jump Cuts Take 2

Here’s another series of memorable quotes from blogs, newspapers, websites, and such that I read or overhead recently:

I got a very generous tip from a stripper who was going on a date. She was on her way to see “Wicked,” the musical, with some guy she wasn’t all that interested in, but he bought her the dress she was wearing, and the date was all paid for, so she was going despite her disinterest. The meter read $9.40 at the end of the trip. She gave me a $20 and told me to keep the change. I love strippers. They always know how to tip.

Firstly and foremostly, I am a guy, which (in most cases) means I did not go see Titanic to see DiCaprio…although I think he can be a great actor. Reading through earlier comments, i grew a bit weary of hearing about lame script and shallow characters. I went to see a ship sink…the plot and the characters were, at least to me, a kind of icing on the Cake.
