How To Be Like

Just thought this topic in a whim. The idea is, you pick up a badass character from any movie of your choice, then give various hints on how one can imitate and copy the character’s actions & behaviour into his own life so that he becomes a cooler person. In other words, survival tips on how to transform yourself into a complete badass and score some chicks. I’ll start myself:

How To Be Like…Patrick Bateman [Movie: American Psycho]

1.) You should start to enter your working place listening to “I’m Walking On Sunshine” on your Ipod, everyday.

2.) You should start over-analysing Whitney Houston songs. Somewhere in between those lyrics, there lies the solution to all the world’s problems.

3.) The first sentence you should utter to a girl on a first date should be “I want you to clean your vagina”.

4.) If a co-worker has a crappier business card than you do, laugh at him. If a co-worker has a cooler business card than you do, kill him.

5.) Start practicing some cool ways of killing people by running completely naked in a hotel corridor with a chainsaw in your hand.

6.) Go to your nearest ATM machine and write “Feed Me A Stray Cat” on it using a permanent marker.

7.) The only things you ever watch on your tv are “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre”, and porn.

8.) Your answer to every question should become “I have to return some videotapes”.

9.) Turn into a complete asshole overnight. If you’re already an asshole, turn into an asshole that murders people. For fun.

10.) Stop eating at all the restaurants which are not named “Dorsia”. That includes Burger King and McDonalds.

How to be like Tom Cruise:

Join a religious cult.

Pretend to be a heterosexual and marry some really hot actress to complete the image.

Lambast the medical community for helping people with chemical imbalances.

“Respect the Cock!” becomes a catch phrase that you know all too well.

Go on Oprah Winfrey and make an ass out of yourself.
