View Full Version : "Passion.." on DVD?

03-16-2004, 05:16 PM
I hear that due to the controversy, the DVD will have alternate endings...the Italians are now the bad guys, and the Mossad will stage a daring rescue attempt, using the mounted Calvery...well, I don't want to give the whole plot away
I also heard that "The Passion.." was not the original title, but "The Dirty Dozen" had already been taken..
OK, so I'm not going to Heaven....

I hear Mel is going to do a spin-off for TV. The apostles will be riding around in a tricked-out Van righting wrongs that local law enforcement won't touch.

Yep, they'll have a plastic Jesus sitting on the dashboard and the theme music will be that little dittie we all love from Cool Hand Luke.

The program will be called "The Pray Team" not to be confused with the Canadian program on CBC called "The Eh Team".

I'll be joining you, wherever it is we're going, I doubt there'll be 72 virgins waiting!!!

~~ two wrongs don't make a right, but three lefts do.

Got to be careful with them plastic Jesus's. Read about a guy had a St. Christopher ( patron St. of travelors) on his dashboard, for good luck. Wellsir, he got in an accident, and the force of the collision, drove the thing into his brain.
Re: the 72 Virgins....why wait? I'm working on #3 already...well, maybe Joanne might not understand our promised reward, and staking an early claim

LOL at that /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif


Who sang that song? Early 70's. Went like this:

<font color="red">I don't care if it rains or freezes

Long as I got my plastic Jesus

Sittin' on the dashboard of my car... /ccboard/images/graemlins/laugh.gif </font color>

Wally~~pretty sure God has a sense of humor. If not, explain the platypus, or Earl Strickland

Artist: Flaming Lips
Song: Plastic Jesus

I don't care if it rains or freezes
Long as I got my plastic Jesus
Sittin' on the dashboard of my car
Comes in colors, pink and pleasant
Glows in the dark, it's iridescent
Take it with you when you travel far
Get yourself a sweet madonna
Dressed in rhinestone, settin' on a
Pedestal of Abalone Shells
Goin' 90, It ain't scary
Cause I got the Virgin Mary
Assuring me that I won't go to hell

I think this was the version that Paul Newman sang in "Cool Hand Luke" which is a cut-down version of the original.

Being a kind of cult folk song there are many more official and unofficial verses. Check out this link:

I knew I could depend on you.

John Prine had a song somewhat in the same vein. "Your Flag Decal Won't Get You Into Heaven Anymore" /ccboard/images/graemlins/laugh.gif

My favorite Prine song though was "Please don't bury me"

found it:

Woke up this morning
Put on my slippers
Walked in the kitchen and died
And oh what a feeling!
When my soul
Went thru the ceiling
And on up into heaven I did ride
When I got there they did say
John, it happened this way
You slipped upon the floor
And hit your head
And all the angels say
Just before you passed away
These were the very last words
That you said:

Please donít bury me
Down in that cold cold ground
No, Iíd druther have "em" cut me up
And pass me all around
Throw my brain in a hurricane
And the blind can have my eyes
And the deaf can take both of my ears
If they donít mind the size
Give my stomach to milwaukee
If they run out of beer
Put my socks in a cedar box
Just get "em" out of here
Venus de milo can have my arms
Look out! Iíve got your nose
Sell my heart to the junkman
And give my love to rose

Repeat chorus

Give my feet to the footloose
Careless, fancy free
Give my knees to the needy
Donít pull that stuff on me
Hand me down my walking cane
Itís a sin to tell a lie
<font color="red">Send my mouth way down south
And kiss my ass goodbye</font color>

"Woke up this mornin'
Put on my slippers
walked in the kitchen and died
And Oh what a feelin'
as my soul went throught the ceilin'
And on up into heaven I did rise"

I was listening to that on my way home from league last night. My favorite John Prine song is "Souvenirs" closely followed by the "Great Compromise". I also like "Dear Abby" a lot.

Have you noticed that there are no "novelty" songs anymore?

Having seen the effects of strip-mining first-hand in KY I was kinda partial to "Muhlenberg County". But if I listened to it too much I might become a Democrat /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif

and this one:

where all the money goes.... </font color>

Prine is a genius. A bit strange, but a genius nonetheless.

He played a free concert at the University I attended, just after "Sweet Revenge" came out. As I recall, almost nobody went because they didn't know who he was. Not many cars in Mississippi had FM radios back then, so if it wasn't top-40 we kids probably hadn't heard it. I know that I hadn't.
