The Patriot is one of those movies that comes on basic cable at 10am on a Sunday morning and I get really excited. Actually, ideally there's be The Patriot on like, TBS and something equally cheesy on USA, like Father of the Bride, so I could flip back and forth during the commercials.
Christ, Melissa and I hung out in our hotel room all morning watching American Pie 57 and were in hysterics. But that's just between us. I mean, really. How embarassing.
Anyway, I've loved The Patriot for years. I own it on VHS! But something about it is different for me now.
Yep. You guessed it. Heath Ledger.
The whole drooling after Gabriel and his wide-eyed passion for freedom is kinda ruined now that he's, you know, dead. It's a little like watching Superman. I can't really get into it because I keep thinking, "Look at him walking around. Wow. Weird."
Anyway, I hope nothing happens to Daniel Day Lewis because Last of the Mohicans is my life.
Which brings me to the Joke of the Day, courtesy of my super classy brother:
What's the difference between Heath Ledger and Heath Ledger jokes?
Heath Ledger jokes get old...
