Jaws (1975) Saturday's Favorite Movie Moment




"See it, before you go swimming"

Recently, I joined The Humor Bloggers.com where I participated in the Humor Blogger Carnival hosted by one of our funniest bloggers on the web, Ettarose, at ettarose-edgeofsanity. If you wished to join the carnival you could write on one of two subjects and chose your own title. One of the subjects was how did you grow up in the decade you were born, such as the 50's 60's or 70's and I decided to write about the seventies, and chose the title Growing Up In The Seventies.

Well, by now, you probably think you know where I'm going with this since Jaws was released in 1975, and you would be correct, however, I would also like to dedicate this Saturday's Favorite Movie Moment to The Humor Bloggers, (because it's one of my new pop-stands) in addition to the host of the first Humor Carnival, Ettarose from ettarose-edgeofsanity, and you didn't know that.

Here's what I wrote about the film in my post,

It sounds silly now, but at the time that Jaws was in theaters it scared everyone half to death. The movie chilled you to the bone so bad, that my best friend, my brother, and I could not go to sleep the night we saw it.

It was ridiculous...but we kept thinking irrational thoughts. For instance, I kept telling myself that it was impossible for a shark to crawl on shore, flag down a taxi, come to our house, and devour all three of us while we slept in our beds. I also had another imagined scenario, which involved a great white out on the town dining to Jaws “music” while he munched on my rib cage; a nightmare too horrifying for me to swallow alone. No pun intended- so the three of us ended up piled in the bed together the night we saw the movie in 1975.



See it, before you go swimming~







Have a great Saturday, full of fun, love, and laughter~

Oh. and Ann. You shoulda been scared. My great uncle Fred pissed off a shark once and the damn thing hailed a taxi and that fish ate both he and my great-aunt Ethel...

"Annie" said...

Etta, I wondered what in the world Bud was talking about...laughing...But then, most of the time I do...

I remember Jaws knocking on Gilda Radner's door and devouring her when she opened it. (Laughing)...Do you remember that?

Those were the funniest Saturday Night Live's. And you are more than welcome for putting you in the dedication. You did a marvelous job on the Humor Carnival.

By the way, I want to apologize for being so behind on returning my comments. But, I'm catching up.

I appreciate everything Sue~

Hope you're having a wonderful weekend~

Annie

Dawn, Laughing...I know it does seem silly now...and it seemed like everyone had those irrational fears I wrote about...Like the shark could walk about freely and gobble people up. laughing...

I hope you're having a great weekend...

I loved that era of Sat. night live...who knew they were all on drugs for most of it. ha ha ha

My grandson could quote from the movie...he loved it...we knew it was almost the end when he yelled..

Hope your doing fine honey...take care.

I still have nightmares over that stupid movie and I'm...well I'm...."older" now. Ahem.

I so loved this movie. It scared me half to death, but what a classic. It had it all. Suspense, politics, death, love...it had it all. Excellent honey. Big hug and lotsa lovies. :)

I remembered seeing it in 3D! Talk about scary...there were body parts floating in the water and it looked like they were floating around you! Creepy...

This movie scared the wits out of me. I remembered watching this with my father when I was a and I ended up crying. :(

Words-

Words are the core of our souls, without written, vocal or lyrical expression we lose sight of one another or worse, ourselves. Words bring forth the essence of the human spirit; so express yourself without abandon.

Written Phrase

Why is it that those we should know or believe turn out to be the ones we least understand? I suppose the world is an illusion until we find our way home.-Ann Clemmons

Favorite Phrase

I remember I used to half believe and wholly play with fairies when I was a child. What heaven can be more real than to retain the spirit-world of childhood, tempered and balanced by knowledge and common-sense...

The Storyteller, by Dawn Drover

Alone in her world
of make believe
weaving her stories
of magic and light

She brings joy
to the eyes
of innocent minds
less jaded and free

For only they know
what's in her heart
holding the secrets
she guards so well

Life's hidden mysteries
belong to those
whose wisdom and truth
shine on in imagination

Favorite quotes-

In my younger and more vulnerable years my father gave me some advice that I’ve been turning over in my mind ever since.

Whenever you feel like criticizing any one,” he told me, “just remember that all the people in this world haven’t had the advantages that you’ve had.”'


F. Scott Fitzgerald. (Lines from The Great Gatsby)
"A Southerner Talks Music"

Mark Twain

"A book must be the ax for the frozen sea inside us."

Franz Kafka

An author values a compliment even when it comes from a source of doubtful competency.

- Mark Twain in Eruption

"I like a good story well told. That is the reason I am sometimes forced to tell them myself"
