"What is a little startling about this movie is somehow it all works," Roger Ebert wrote in his review of The Blues Brothers, the day it came out (June 20, 1980). "There is even room, in the midst of the carnage and mayhem, for a surprising amount of grace, humor and whimsy."
The thing about Brimpception is it’s NEVER over!
Mostly because the Fantastic Comics Valkyries just don’t quit. :)
Let me show you how deep the rabbit hole goes.
my teen angst bullshit has a body count
McDonald’s has been forced to open its first ever restaurant with a turquoise coloured sign after city planners said the signature yellow sign would be too garish. Officials in Sedona, Arizona told the fast-food giant they were unable to open a restaurant with the trademark yellow logo.This is due to the city’s strict regulations which prevent buildings from ruining the picturesque view of the desert.

Hilton Head, SC has always required small unlit signs that McDonalds has complied with. The lack of giant signage is lovely, the lack of reasonable lighting on the main highway, not so much.
Damn, Talmadge Memorial Bridge stays looking good at dawn. #sunset #savannah (at River Street)
Look out for the wharf rats down there. Wish I was kidding.

"Wonderful girl. Either I’m going to kill her or I’m beginning to like her!"
Has Joss told you anything about the arc of the movie?
Chris Evans, the king of not knowing who the villains in his movies are.
I bet Sebastian Stan walked onto the set of Winter Soldier and he was like “what are you doing here? Bucky’s the Winter Soldier? You’re shitting me? They don’t tell me anything.”
I COULD WATCH THIS GIF SET FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE
Every time I see this I wonder what the cat was thinking.
The woman on the left is a mother from Miami who was so desperate to feed her hungry family that she was trying to steal a lot of food.
The woman on the right is Miami-Dade County Police Officer Vicki Thomas. Officer Thomas was about to arrest Jessica Robles but changed her mind at the last minute.
Instead of arresting her, she bought Robles $100 worth of groceries:
“I made the decision to buy her some groceries because arresting her wasn’t going to solve the problem with her children being hungry.”
And there’s no denying they were hungry. Robles’ 12 year old daughter started crying when she told local TV station WSVN about how dire their situation was:
“[It’s] not fun to see my brother in the dirt hungry, asking for food, and we have to tell him, ‘There is nothing here.’”
Officer Thomas says she has no question that what she did was right:
“To see them go through the bags when we brought them in, it was like Christmas. That $100 to me was worth it.”
But Officer Thomas did have one request:
“The only thing I asked of her is, when she gets on her feet, that she help someone else out. And she said she would.”
And guess what? The story gets even better.
After word got out about what happened people donated another $700 for Jessica Robles to spend at the grocery store.
And then best of all a local business owner invited her in for an interview and ended up hiring her on the spot as a customer service rep.
She started crying when he told her:
“There’s no words how grateful I am that you took your time and helped somebody out. Especially somebody like me.”
And to think it all started with one veteran police officer trusting her “instinct” instead of going “by the book”.

Important to remember that usually only the bad cops make the news. I’ve known a lot of really good ones.
