Aaron's Thing of the Week -- 16th September, 2009: A Farewell to a Chippendale


Patrick Swayze passed away just a couple days ago, and I'm actually really, really sad about it. The man delivered perhaps the greatest line in cinematic history, after all. 

Most men would have delivered that line and called it a career. But not Swayze. No, he went and made Point Break, one of the best terrible-but-I'm-not-turning-it-off-until-it's-over movies ever made. And Road House, for fuck's sake! 

But the true highlight of Patrick Swayze's career didn't come on the big screen. No, it came on the small screen, and it featured another entertainer gone too soon.

RIP, Patrick Swayze, 1952-2009.
