Farewell, Dirty Dancer

It’s never a good thing when I have to be on obit duty here, but it’s especially bad today. We lost a Nerd Lunch favorite yesterday and well before we should have. Patrick Swayze was a great performer and, by all accounts, an even better man.

Sure I’ll watch Red Dawn, Road House, or Point Break anytime and anywhere, but Patrick Swayze could get me to watch a movie about dancing, drag queens, or a romance from beyond the grave. Call it a man-crush, but I say he was just that damn good.



Adios, amigo. You will be missed.

    Thanks, Christian. I already haven't found the time to rewatch Red Dawn but now you're making me want to rewatch Roadhouse, too!

    Roadhouse will always be one of my cheesy favourites. Dalton was badass. Yanks out a guys esophagus? A bit more direct than "the touch of death technique."
