I am in desperate need for some new-to-me music, especially for working out.
Normally I review movies I have seen recently, whether they are new or old. However today’s gFlix is about a TV show I saw last night on the Biography Channel about one of my favorite movies of all time, so I got that going for me which is nice. Hopefully you guessed right, it was an inside look at the making of Caddyshack! I’ll spare the nitty gritty but it was a great show with terrific insight, such as Rodney Dangerfield’s audition. This was Rodney’s first real movie, and times were much different. Rodney walked into the room, cut four lines of coke, snorted them all, and said, “Let’s Eat!”
Another bit o’ information that I found amazing was, Bill Murray’s character Carl Spangler had absolutely no lines written for him. Everything you see in the movie is pure Murray improvisation. That doesn’t shock me but makes me appreciate his comic genius even more.
Pops signed me up for a service contract with a great HVAC company. So far the service has been great! But I will refrain from plugging them until their job is done. What was supposed to be a routine checkup and initial visit turned into a cracked heat exchanger, a chilly work from home day, $$$$$, and a new furnace. Gotta love home ownership!
