Eli Wallach (1915-2014) R.I.P.

   I remember seeing the movie, The Good The Bad & The Ugly at one of my hometowns drive-ins (remember those?) back in Texas during the late 70s. At the time, I was 9 or 10 years old and really liked Westerns. Well, Westerns were all over the place at that time and especially on the telly. I had the fake gun, the cowboy shirt, the holster, the boots and even the cowboy hat. Hell, we even went to school dressed like that at times. TGTBTU had a huge impression on me growing up. 
   As I got older, Westerns became fixture on television during the Western time slots in the afternoon. Then all of a sudden in 1988, a band called MINISTRY came out with the album, The Land Of Rape & Honey on cassette. I heard it and it changed the way I heard music. It was heavy, dark, subliminal and had fuckin' movie samples. I heard shit from movies I liked and it got me HARD! Especially when I heard the track, "YOU KNOW WHAT YOU ARE?" My jaw dropped and I yelled out to my friend, THAT'S TUCO! TUCO! My friend gave me a look like i just took a huge hit of PCP or something. Anyway, when I heard the actor Eli Wallach (The Ugly) has passed on, those memories came back in a flash. I love that movie and in his honor, I will see it this weekend and play Ministry's song as well. R.I.P. Tuco!
