A Texan Attempts To Get A Yankee Ready For RodeoHouston
Craig: As for rodeo movies, yes, 8 Seconds works, as does Pure Country. And maybe Crazy Heart if I am feeling weepy. Around this time of year I watch Urban Cowboy at least twice a day, four times on weekend days. You? There are some great furnishings at Texas Junk that look like they would have come right out of Bud and Sissy's trailer.
Christina: Well, my rodeo-specific movie repertoire consists solely of 8 Seconds, which really isn't my fault -- it's Hollywood's fault for not casting Luke Perry in more rodeo-themed movies. Now that I know Urban Cowboy counts I'll definitely move that up in the rotation.
Since Hollywood is so into remakes, I'm now thinking about who would be cast in an Urban Cowboy reboot. Justin Bieber and Shanae Grimes? Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart in a post-Twilight on-screen reunion?
Craig: Maybe I don't want to help you rodeo-ize your life anymore.
Christina: I'm pretty sure my Texas card just spontaneously combusted.
Craig: (stares at computer screen for ten minutes without blinking)
Christina: I think I'm ready for my Rodeo Immersion Program. I'm sure to make some missteps (Urban Cowboy casting fantasies?) but with my own personal Rodeo Adviser to keep me in line, I think I've got a real shot at being awesome at rodeos.
Craig: That's good to hear. Remember, all cowboys ain't dumb. Some of 'em got smarts real good, like me.
