Thoughts for the Day

Last night was Trivia Night. MC Graham unkindly suggested that our team name for the night - “Rosebud” – was not just homage to Orson Welles and Citizen Kane but that we were trying to sneak one past him. Most unkind. Indeed, the AFI list of 100 greatest movie lines has only 2 entries that consist of one word: “Rosebud” is one (at No 17); the other is “Plastics” from The Graduate (at No 42). See:

Mind you, I can understand Graham’s suspicion when we have previously called our team such names as Schmekel and Cock Robin.

A couple of Thoughts for the Day from film . . .

- From Citizen Kane

- From 12 Angry Men
