“No matter where you go, there you are.”

From: The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension

Genre: Movies

Who said it?: Buckaroo Banzai

The story behind the quote: This week’s quote comes from the cult classic sci-fi movie, The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension. The film follows Buckaroo Banzai, a highly intelligent man who managed to create a device that can allow people to cross dimensions… who just so happens to be a leader of a rock band.

The quote comes near the start of the film. Buckaroo Banzai (played by Peter Weller) and his band, the Hong Kong Cavaliers, are performing when he notices a sad lady. He stops playing to try to find out what’s wrong with her. The crowd heckles the woman. In a way to explain how life is, he delivers the quote.

Geek wisdom: Life is what is is. You can try to run away from it but it will always catch up to you. This does mean that life will have its ups and downs and you have to take the good with the bad.

Most of my childhood (and adult life) was spent doing a lot of geeky stuff: watching TV, playing video games and going to the movies. To some, it may have been a waste of time. Well, to me, it has made me what I am today... a geeky adult. I actually write for a couple of blogs, namely: geekwisdom.wordpress.com 3rdworldgeeks.com gamemoir.com Please check them out!
