75th Anniversary of “Gone With the Wind”

In honor of the 75th anniversary of the classic movie, Gone With the Wind, Turner Classic Movies is holding special showings in select theaters across the nation. Yesterday, Momma and I saw the 1939 love story of a man and woman and the love story a woman and her home on the big screen at a sold-out screening. Seeing one of my favorites movies in it’s original 1939 retrospect was an experience I couldn’t miss!

As I watched the movie, I thought about how some of the film’s most famous quotes are still relevant today. So, enjoy my top 5 quotes from Gone With the Wind that anyone can apply to their life, 75 years later after the film’s original premiere.

1: “Frankly my dear, I don’t give a damn.” -Rhett Butler

Use this quote for the moments when you really…don’t give a damn about something.

2: “You should be kissed and often. And by someone who knows how.” -Rhett Butler

Does this one need any explanation?

3: “I can’t think about that right now. If I do, I will go crazy. I’ll think about that tomorrow.” -Scarlett O’Hara

Worry about the things you need to for today and worry about the rest tomorrow.

4: “With enough courage you can do without a reputation.” -Rhett Butler

Who cares what others think? Have the courage to be yourself!

5: “After all tomorrow is another day.” -Scarlett O’Hara

Always know things will be better tomorrow and with each day you are given a brand new start.

The Bros in Country Music

Since country music is starting to appeal more and more to younger generations, apparently your typical “bros” are starting to appear. You know the typical bros who talk about girls, endless summer nights, and tailgating. Recently, I read the article titled “9 Things You’re Guaranteed to Hear in a Bro-Country Song,” and the list included just that…a girl, an iced cold beer, endless summer, and tailgating, plus many more.

Parts of this article are true and in my opinion, parts are not. The article referenced country singers, such as Luke Bryan, Tim McGraw, Florida Georgia Line, and Blake Shelton. This article is true in the fact that these singers do have songs describing the typical bro aspects, but they also have songs sing about achy breaky heartaches and portray stoic men (part 1 on where I disagree). I also disagree with the article in the sense that bro-country “ain’t leaving anytime soon.” My prediction for country music? The younger generation will become more attracted to country music, but will also become more attracted to the older country classics. Country music should be a mixture of bro-country, newer songs, and the older classics. I mean, you doesn’t love a little George Jones singing about moonshine, while still being able to hear Kip Moore sing about a truck?
