What is Best in Life?

When you're heading out the door to do the Birkie or whatever...it's good to remember what Conan says is best in life. "To crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentation of their women" (I always thought lamentation was a pretty big word for old Conan, but that's just Oliver Stone showing off [he wrote the screenplay to "Conan the Barbarian" believe it or not]).


I tell you, watching that clip brings a tear to my eye.  You see, "Conan the Barbarian" was a Christmas classic at my household.  Every year we'd light up the tree, have some eggnog, rip a leg or two off the turkey, and settle in for a nice Christmas eve viewing of "Conan the Barbarian."  The Christmas message of that film gets more and more beautiful every year.

...and let me tell you one more thing.  NO film is FUNNIER than "Conan the Barbarian" on Christmas eve...NOTHING!  The rest of the year it's not funny, but when I watch it through on Christmas eve I'm just ROLLING (perhaps it's because I'm imagining that I must be the only guy on the face of the Earth watching it...in fact, if somebody else DOES watch Conan every Christmas, please get in touch with me...you must be awesome!).
