  1. Wow , thats odd, i just watched Full Metal Jacket last night .
    I had not seen it in many years and decided to watch it again

    My condolences

  2. My most memorable watching of Ermey was the crazy sheriff of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre remake, which is much better than the original (which doesn’t happen very often!) And didn’t he do some TV show?
