What better way to start a blog about memory than a movie about the lack thereof? The first template is for Half-Baked, a 90's stoner comedy featuring Dave Chappelle, and favorite movie of mine back when I was in high school.
HALF-BAKED イン Can Thurgood save Kenny from Nasty Nate イン time?!
employee 員 Kenny Davis the kindergarten teacher is not a model employee - neither is the rest of the group! (Scarface with his burger job or Thurgood, stealing from his employers)
rhyme 韻 "It's hard bein black and gifted, sometimes I just wanna throw it all down and get lifted!" or "candy makes you dandy"
cause 因 The cause of every problem in this movie is weed. The cause of this movie is weed. Cause = weed = half baked.
matrimony 姻 The way this movie ends it's like Thurgood dumped weed to end up in holy matrimony with Mary Jane.
Inst. 院 Kenny Davis the kindergarten teacher is institutionalized after he gets busted! Image: Nasty Nate staring and Kenny... in the shower.
sound 音 Jerry Garcia performing in Brian's (Jim Breuer's) ear-lobe.
stamp 印 The stamp of Sampson and the stamp of Mr. Smiley are both infamous stamps in this flick!
pull 引 The memorable way Snoop Dog pulls on a joint in this movie.
drink 飲 Kenny emerging from the slurpee machine after he first gets high: "I've never felt so thirsty, in my entire life!"
shade 陰 When Mr. Sampson is introduced, the lighting is dim, he sits in the shade of his fire surrounded by ninja women (with hair-curlers on).
license 允 A license to teach - something Kenny Davis the kindergarten teacher would love to get back (and I wonder how he got it in the first place...)
conceal 隠 Scarface, trying to conceal his identity by dressing up and acting like a mime.
This is a spatial memory and movie themed website all about learning the on-yomi (original Chinese-inspired) readings of Japanese characters. For a fuller introduction, please read this post. Please keep in mind you should be familiar with the Remembering the Kanji book series for any of this to make any kind of sense. Thanks.
