Before there was 1, now there are many...

For about a while I have been thinking about switching up my header pictures (the Do the Right Thing movie snapshots above) to another movie, but I'm having a hard time making my mind up...

A little background history:

A little more than a year ago, I borrowed (stole) the Do the Right Thing dvd from my girlfriend. This robbery was due to the fact that at the time I was trying to make t-shirts (in collabo with my gf) and I needed images for my potential tees. What other movie would be perfecto for imagery/memorable/recognizable/influential scenes???

One of the images that I wanted to use for my t-shirt project was this one:

"Sweet Dick Willie and Friends"

Well to make a long(er) story short, b/c of my laziness, the t-shirt project never transpired but since I liked the picture so much I wanted to use it, some how some way...Originally, the above pic was the only picture in my blog' header...as you can see now there are several images from Do the Right Thing.

Just my luck, someone will make a Sweet Dick Willie and Friends t-shirt...lol

I probably rip'd scenes from more than 1/2 of the movies in my dvd collection...Well, here are a few of movies/pics that i thought about using:

Click the pictures below to make them bigger!

Nacho Libre

Lost in Translation

Pulp Fiction


Enter the Dragon


The Wood

City of God

I have plenty more scenes from these movies and others...Eventually, I probably use them...one way or another.

If you haven't seen any of these movies I highly recommend them!

Please leave a comment on which scenes you like the best...

Outtie 5 g's,

havent watched some, wasnt crazy about some, wan to see some. so I cant pick.

many are pretty recognizable even though i havent seen them, but it depends on the message u're trying to send.

the sweet "dick willie and friends" picture looks nice, but i havent seen it, so the meaning might change

ha ha im a bit bad at deciding lol
