|#671 Movies, Romance, and Dinosaurs
Wendi talks with Ken about his favorite movies.
Wendi: So I want you to tell me about your favorite movie ever, and why it's your favorite movie?
Ken: My favorite movie ever? OOh!
Ken: Titanic. Yeah, no. No, it's not.
Wendi: Come on, you can be honest.
Ken: I did watch it twice. I fell asleep the second time.
Wendi: Did you seriously watch it?
Ken: No, I did watch it twice. Yeah.
Wendi: You really watched it two times.
Ken: No, cause it came out when I was in 9th grade.
Ken: Just blossoming into adulthood at that point.
Wendi: So you wathced it kind of for rules on how to be with girls?
Ken: No, kind of like, you know it's the only PG-13 movie with like, you know, I don't know if I'm supposed to say.
Ken: Yeah, it's a little, you know, a little eye candy.
Wendi: That's awesome. So you loved the movie.
Ken: No, not Titanic. My favorite movie was Jurassic Park actually.
Wendi: I hated that movie.
Ken: No, it's the best movie because I grew up, as a child, I...
Wendi: You loved dinosours.
Ken: I loved dinosaurs. No, I loved dinosaurs.
Ken: I really liked them. I had dinosaur t-shirts. Like my parents would always buy me dinosaur books. Like I could name every single dinosaur. I can't anymore but I could. Like I was really into it. I wanted to be a paleontologist.
Wendi: Wow, that is amazing... You know that's one thing I've never really understood, is kids that are super into dinoaurs, and I've never met a girl that's super into dinosaurs.
Ken: Hell, yeah. Never.
Wendi: But, I've met so many eight-year old boys that are dino-crazy. What's up with that?
Ken: I don't know. I can't explain it. It's like their cool you know. You know some kids like cars and trucks and stuff. I like dinosaurs.
Wendi: Yeah... You know, like, but I still can't put my finger on it, because when I think about it, I, like when I feel attracted to a man, I know what I'm attracted to, like so when you think about how you're attracted to dinosaurs, what is the draw?
Ken: Ah, but you don't think about that when you're eight-years old.
Wendi: I guess you're right.
Ken: But, like I guess in retrospect the draw is that, these dinosaurs, they're so strong and powerful and yet mysterious because, you know, you've never actually seen one. You can only look at pictures or go to a museum and look at the skeletons. Yeah, and...
Wendi: When I was young, it was the unicorn, for me.
Wendi: Yeah, because there was this song that I used to sing all the time and it had a unicorn in it, and I was always just like, "Man, it'd be so amazing to see a unicorn."
