RE: RIP Gunnery Sergeant R Lee Ermey
Every scene he was in 'Full Metal Jacket' was glorious, also the graduation scene. He only needed some lines to let the audience know about the mystique behind of what a boot camp brings to young men, they stop being soft grown teenagers to become soldiers.




With God's help, I'll conquer this terrible affliction.

RE: RIP Gunnery Sergeant R Lee Ermey
This is a sad day.

I'd never heard of the term 'reach around' before. Shit that people do.





I'm a massive Kubrick fan. Mahoosive.

Lee Ermey was chosen because he was a genuine shitlord.

Fucking 'reach around' - still can't get over it...

But there's many more classics from this guy. You want to look up the shooting of that scene. He just flowed. Tour de force. Kubrick let him run with it. That's a big compliment.

You can see that they are genuinely scared of him.

And that harmonic voice.

This is why I never joined the Marine Corps.

And probably never will.

This guy was a legend.

He gave a speech somewhere I saw when I was in the Navy. There's an interview somewhere with him talking about tattoos. He's got lips on his asscheek.

Also, he got fucked by Hollywood over bad-mouthing Obama. He was a Trump supporter, and we better see a presidential tweet about his passing asap.

Aloha!

RIP to a real animal.

The original drill sergeant written for Full Metal Jacket was more of a standard tough guy, and Ermy was the consultant for the film but eventually they heard the stuff that came out of his mouth and knew they couldn't write that so they gave him the gig.

RE: RIP Gunnery Sergeant R Lee Ermey
"Today, you are Marines. You're part of a brotherhood. From now on until the day you die, wherever you are, every Marine is your brother. Most of you will go to Vietnam. Some of you will not come back. But always remember this: Marines die. That's what we're here for. But the Marine Corps lives forever. And that means YOU live forever."

Quote:"St. Gregory of Nyssa devotes a special treatise to the 'Life of Moses', in which the assent of Mount Sinai towards the darkness of incomprehensibility represents the way of contemplation, superior to Moses' first meeting with God when appeared to him in the burning bush. Then Moses saw God in light; now he enters the darkness, leaving behind him all that can be seen or know; there remains to him only the invisible and unknowable, but in this darkness is God."
