Arnold Schwarzenegger

What does this name make you think of? Muscles? Politics? Phone calls from friends in Arnie’s prerecorded voice?

Arnold Schwarzenegger makes me think of my dad. The name and the man evoke memories of late nights spent in our old, falling-down house – Arnold’s voice booming through the living room and into the kitchen- drawing us together, cringing and laughing: Arnold is escapism. He is power and fantasy and action enough to keep your eyes glued to the TV far beyond exhaustion. He is The Predator. He is True Lies. He is The Terminator.

Some will think of him as a pregnant man in Junior, a brother in Twins, a bodybuilder shaking our understanding of strength and forming new ideas about The American Dream. Regardless, this iconic man has touched many lives. Now, with the October 1, 2012 release of his autobiography, we have the opportunity to learn about him – the man behind the image – in his own words.

  1. It wasn’t that the ears weren’t quite right or the fact he wasn’t green, Arnold only lost out on the role of Shrek because he couldn’t do a Scottish accent.

  2. …duotangs, pencils, rulers, the right erasers and travelling to 3 different malls to find the perfect backpack, then the student fees, bus schedules,… aaaaaaaaaauuuuuuuuuuuuurgh!!!!!
    I just want to go back to summer.

  3. “AAAHHH THEY REMADE MY MOVIE?!? MY MOVIE?!? IDIOTS. GET TO THE CHOPPA SOMEBODY’S GONNA PAY FOR THIS…”

    “This was supposed to be fun. Put that cookie down. NOWWW. And get me out of this or I’ll Be Back…”
