Meowdela Effect July 28. “It wasn't him, Charley, it was you. Remember that night in the Garden you came down to my dressing room and you said, "Kid, this ain't your night. We're going for the price on Wilson." You remember that? "This ain't your night"! My night! I coulda taken Wilson apart! So what happens? He gets the title shot outdoors on the ballpark and what do I get? A one-way ticket to Palooka-ville! You was my brother, Charley, you shoulda looked out for me a little bit. You shoulda taken care of me just a little bit so I wouldn't have to take them dives for the short end money.....You don't understand. I coulda had class. I coulda been a contender. I coulda been somebody, instead of a bum, which is what I am, let's face it. It was you, Charley.” 1954. Academy Award winning And classic On The Waterfront staring Meowrlan Brando is released. #cats #catsofinstagram #instacats #moviecats #classiccats #marlonbrando #onthewaterfront #icouldabeenacontender #academyawards #oscars #mandelaeffect #meowdelaeffect

I'm broke and I'm hungry, I'm hard up and I'm lonely. I've been dancing on this killing floor for years and of the few things I am certain, I'm the captain of my burden. I'm sorry doll, I could never stop the rain. Once you said I was your hero. You would dance with me on a dime. We could spin this world right right right round and catch back up on the flip side. I was gonna get this real big engine. I was gonna get them Broadway stars. You were gonna be my Judy Garland, We were gonna share your tin man heart. . . . #icouldabeenacontender #thegaslightanthem #girlswithpiercings #girlswithtattoos #piercedgirls #portrait #blackandwhite #depression #sinkorswim

Elizabethan Theatre was open, Quick!! do a Sonnet that you still remember from UBC theatre school. Maintenance guy very politely busted us said, “sir” and waved us out of there. #theatrenerd #lesmurphyrables #eastvanbyhand #icouldabeenacontender #oregonshakespearefestival #theatregrad #ubcbfaact #ubcbfa Damn it! I didn’t keep recording getting caught by the maintenance guy. And us running out of there. Wonder how many times he has caught people doing that. They should build a little mini globe theatre stage out in the town square and all us frustrated theatre actors who want to work at Oregon Shakespeare Festival get to go up and do a monologue or a sonnet? Maybe there’s an open mic night where we can go and do Shakespeare at the pub or a Shakespeare karaoke night but spoken word?

My recycling bin was half full of water this morning and it had to go out. I couldn't tip it over to roll it so I had to drag it and now my arms are killing me. To fix this problem, I spent this beautiful evening drilling holes in my three trash cans and in my recycling bin. Pookie helped me. #recycle #recycling #recyclingbin #water #fullofwater #rain #rainwater #trash #trashwater #wettrash #gross #killing #icouldabeenacontender #pookie #pookiehelped #cats #blackcats #tuxedocat #pookie #hank #henryrollins #thegrumpyone #meow

I am not exactly known for my dancing and choreography. But I am pretty sure I could have nailed their sideline sharking moves. Quite frankly I am a bit disappointed I didn’t get the call. #billboardmusicawards #icouldabeenacontender

High school Aer: “I’m gonna live in nyc! I’m gonna be a bestselling novelist by the time I’m 30! I’m gonna be a cast member on Saturday Night Live!” Nowadays Aer: “WOW, I can’t believe I had the energy to take a shower today!” The bittersweet thing is, despite my depression, I feel like I can maybe someday kinda still achieve those goals. Call me Johnny Delusional, I guess. 💁🏼‍♀️ #sadbuttrue #unrealisticexpectations #depressionmemes #icouldabeenacontender #britneybitch #johnnydelusionalhere

#19 On The Waterfront Finally, we made it to Brando! On The Waterfront is a crime drama about longshoremen in New Jersey and their crooked labor union. Marlon Brando plays Terry Molloy, a man who could have made it big as a boxer if not for the mob. He inadvertently helps a guy get bumped off, and like everyone else on the docks, tries to keep D-and-D (or Deaf-and-Dumb) about what he knows. He falls in love with the sister of the victim, and his conscience gets the better of him, leading him to make some tough decisions whether to talk or not. This movie won a zillion awards, and it also was loosely based off the story of a real Hoboken longshoreman who really testified to the Waterfront Commission about some sketchy activities on the docks. The priest played by Karl Malden was also based off a Waterfront Priest in Manhattan. Johnny Friendly, the mob boss, was also based off a few real life crime bosses. On The Waterfront also features the iconic line, “I coulda been a contender!” Year Added: 1989 Year Released: 1954 Watched: 19/750 Source: Bad quality version on YouTube played at .75 speed with a flying stars border and terrible sound #onthewaterfront #waterfront #marlonbrando #brando #icouldabeenacontender #docks #longshoreman #newjersey #movieposter #moviebuff #1950s #1954 #crimedrama #hoboken

Who can guess where I am? Whenever I feel frustrated with an aspect of my life, I remind myself that everyone has a struggle. What I can handle, others can't, and what others can handle, I could not. My faith, family, and friends help me get through these times. Certainly my health roller coaster has been a journey I didn't anticipate, but through it I have seen such good in people. I have experienced more medical distress than most people my age but in return I have received so much love, generosity, and caring messages. Through it all I have still maintained the discipline to eat a healthy diet, even over Christmas which is a big deal because I am a comfort eater. I may not reach peak physical prowess that I crave, but I am still able to achieve, worthy to be loved, and have untapped potential. Thanks for reading my rantings about my #health #transplantlife #discipline #tylenol3 #livertransplant #icouldabeenacontender
