I never have anything awesome to give away - but I happen to have a copy of Kelly's Heroes, greatest movie evvvver, that I am putting up for giveaway. Will draw straws Friday.

Many of you may have seen this movie. Me and my dad used to watch it all the time. I bought it again, just to reminisce... and now must pass it on, as you must do will all awesome movies. :)

Terra,
How cool you are to be your tender age and know this is one of the all time best war movies made.
Please DON'T include me in the drawing as I have a copy already.
For anyone who doesn't know, the weapons, gear, uniforms, tanks and vehicles in this flick are the most historically accurate of most any war drama ever made before 'Saving PVT Ryan'. Most war movies of the day (and before and after for that matter) just used American tanks and vehicles and painted German Crosses on them. When Oddball tells Kelly about his crew slipping a piece of pipe over their Sherman tank's 60mm gun barrel to deceive the Krauts into thinking the tank had a larger high velocity gun was an actual practice during the war. The same goes for shooting a Tiger tank in it's ass to take it out.
Your a better person than me Terra, I am too greedy, 'cuz my heirs will have to decide what to do with my copy!

I am the same way. I have a tone of histrically accurate movies/shows on DVD that I will sit down and watch with my kids when they are older so that they know what patriotism and freedom really is.

Burning Bridges - The Mike Curb Congregation

Friends all tried to warn me
But I held my head up high
All the time they warned me
But I only passed them by
They all tried to tell me
But I guess I didn't care
I turned my back and
Left them standing there

All the burning bridges that have fallen after me
All the lonely feelings and the burning memories
Everyone I left behind each time I closed the door
Burning bridges lost forevermore

Joey tried to help me find a job
A while ago
When I finally got it I didn't want to go
The party Mary gave for me
When I just walked away
Now there's nothing left for me to say

All the burning bridges that have fallen after me
All the lonely feelings and the burning memories
Everyone I left behind each time I closed the door
Burning bridges lost forevermore

Years have passed and I keep thinking
What a fool I've been
I look back into the past and
Think of way back then
I know that I lost everything I thought I that could win
I guess I should have listened to my friends

All the burning bridges that have fallen after me
All the lonely feelings and the burning memories
Everyone I left behind each time I closed the door
Burning bridges lost forevermore

Burning bridges lost forevermore
