Nigel Tufnel: The numbers all go to eleven. Look, right across the board, eleven, eleven, eleven and…
Marty DiBergi: Oh, I see. And most amps go up to ten?
Nigel Tufnel: Exactly.
Marty DiBergi: Does that mean it’s louder? Is it any louder?
Nigel Tufnel: Well, it’s one louder, isn’t it? It’s not ten. You see, most blokes, you know, will be playing at ten. You’re on ten here, all the way up, all the way up, all the way up, you’re on ten on your guitar. Where can you go from there? Where?
Marty DiBergi: I don’t know.
Nigel Tufnel: Nowhere. Exactly. What we do is, if we need that extra push over the cliff, you know what we do?
Marty DiBergi: Put it up to eleven.
Nigel Tufnel: Eleven. Exactly. One louder.
Marty DiBergi: Why don’t you just make ten louder and make ten be the top number and make that a little louder?
Nigel Tufnel: [pause] These go to eleven.
I just heard on All Things Considered that people were walking out of the theatre during “Tree Of Life”. Apparently some were actually angry and most demanded a refund. I mean how fucking pathetic is their mental capacity that a movie with a nonlinear plot triggers them to walk out and angrily demand a refund. I wonder how many potentially amazing films dont get made because some executive doesn’t think the public will understand or enjoy its lack if ‘action’.
Enjoy your reheated shit explosions and watch Transformers or something. South Park nailed it. They’ll keep making shit films if people still pay to see them.
Do yourself and our culture a favor and stop giving shit movie makers and shit studios your money.
