Easter

I know that this is a bit late, but I haven’t posted anything for over a week!  Jeez, I’ve been slacking.

I hope everyone had a Blessed Easter with there families.  I hope that your weather wasn’t too icky.  We had snow flurries!  At least it didn’t stick.

YouTube on SGEP

I could copy and past them here, but I linking is easier. 

My friend (not the one on crack, but SGEP) found these youtube videos and I want to share the goodness with you.  Be prepared to LOL.  As always, please leave him a comment. 🙂

I know you’re reading this!  Please go and visit.  🙂

Movies, of remakes and sequels

So Kemi was talking about movies, which gave me an idea.  This is a list about movies that I love and my thoughts about the remakes or sequels.

 The Parent Trap.  I love the version with Haley Mills.  I refuse to watch the remake.  Not because of Lindsey Lohan, but I don’t the to watch something that’s not the original.  The only way that I will watch the remake is if I’m on a coach bus or a plane and that’s what’s playing.

The Poseidon Adventure.  I do love the cheesy old version and again, I have no desire to watch the remake.

The Blues Brothers.  I LOVE The Blues Brothers and I have no desire to watch the sequel.  Call me stodgy, but I won’t.

Grease.  Okay, I will admit, I have watched Grease 2 and I sort of liked it.  Not as much as the original.  If you did like the Grease 2 over Grease, let me know. 

Those are the movies that came to mind off the top of my head and I’m sure there are more.  Your thoughts?

The 80’s

This is my additional take on the you know your from the 80’s.  This is the stuff that I rememb er that always seems to get left off of the lists.  😀

… When anyone asks, “Who are you going to call?”  You reply, “Ghostbusters!”
… You reply “Helloooo.  McFly” to anything.
… When someone asks, “You know what?” you have to pause a minute before you reply back, “Chicken butt.”
… When you’re making anything with broccoli, you start singing, “Chopping Broccoli”.
… Whenever you buy a hamburger that’s more bun than burger you ask, “Where’s the beef?”
…  You sing the “extra” words when you hear “Mony, Mony” or “American Pie” on the radio.
…  You know where this quote came from.  “Time?  Time?  I never have any time?  If I don’t pass my geometry test, I won’t get good grades.  If I don’t get good Grades, I’ll never get into Stanford.  I’m so Excited!  I’m so scared.”  This isn’t the exact quote, but I coulodn’t find it
…  When you finish a 6 pack, you still cut the rings apart.
…  Finish this quote, “Galaxy Glue, Galaxy Glue.”  Now name the movie!
…  You never want to live on Elm Street.  No matter how much you like the house.
…  You have a fear of “static” on the television.
…  You tried to stay up late enough to watch “Friday Night Videos”
…  You tried to stay up late enough to watch the station go off the air.  (Now we get endless info-mercials)
…  When you hear the Nutcracker March, you start singing, “Smurfberry Crunch is fun to eat; A Smurfy, fruity, breakfast treat; Made by Smurfs so happily; It tastes like crunchy Smurfberries; it’s fun to eat and tasty too; in berry red and Smurfy blue”
…  The name Mike Myers either conjures up fear or fits of laughter.

Here’s a fun computer version of Do you remember….

… when saving a file, you had only 8 characters to use to name it?
… writing programs… in DOS?
…  WYSIWIG?
… word perfect 2.0?  Lotus 1-2-3 & dB IV?  (Do I have that last one correct?)
… 5 1/4 inch floppy disks?
… having to tab through everything because there was no mouse?

When I was growing up…

 I should have done this before.  I personally didn’t write it… It was an email forward that my sister sent me. 

If you are 30 or older, you will think this is hilarious!!!! When I was a kid, adults used to bore me to tears with their tedious diatribes about how hard things were when they were growing up; what, with walking twenty-five miles to school every morning uphill BOTH ways yadda, yadda, yadda!

And I remember promising myself that when I grew up, there was no way in hell I was going to lay a bunch of crap like that on kids about how hard I had it and how easy they’ve got it!

But now that… I’m over the ripe old age of thirty, I can’t help but look around and notice the youth of today. You’ve got it so easy! I mean, compared to my childhood, you live in a darn Utopia!

And I hate to say it but you kids today you don’t know how good you’ve got it!

I mean, when I was a kid we didn’t have The Internet. If we wanted to know something, we had to go to the library and look it up ourselves, in the card catalog!!

There was no email! We had to actually write somebody a letter…with a pen! Then you had to walk all the way across the street and put it in the mailbox and it would take like a week to get there!

There were no MP3’s or Napsters! You wanted to steal music, you had to hitchhike to the record store and shoplift it yourself! Or you had to wait around all day to tape it off the radio.

We didn’t have fancy crap like Call Waiting! If you were on the phone and somebody else called they got a busy signal, that’s it! And we didn’t have fancy Caller ID Boxes either! When the phone rang, you had no idea who it was! It could be your school, your mom, your boss, your bookie, your drug dealer, a collections agent, you just didn’t know!!! You had to pick it up and take your chances mister!

We didn’t have any fancy Sony Playstation video games with high-resolution 3-D graphics! We had the Atari 2600! With games like ‘Space Invaders’ and ‘asteroids’ and the graphics sucked! Your guy was a little square! You actually had to use your imagination! And there were no multiple levels or screens, it was just one screen forever! And you could never win. The game just kept getting harder and harder and faster and faster until you died! Just like LIFE!

When you went to the movie theater there was no such thing as stadium seating! All the seats were the same height! If a tall guy or some old broad with a hat sat in front of you and you couldn’t see, you were just screwed!

Sure, we had cable television, but back then that was only like 15 channels and there was no onscreen menu and no remote control! You had to use a little book called a TV Guide to find out what was on! You were screwed when it came to channel surfing! You had to get off your rear and walk over to the TV to change the channel and there was no Cartoon Network either! You could only get cartoons on Saturday morning. Do you hear what I’m saying!?! We had to wait ALL WEEK for cartoons, you spoiled little brats!

And we didn’t have microwaves, if we wanted to heat something up we had to use the stove or go build a fire … imagine that! If we wanted popcorn, we had to use that stupid Jiffy Pop thing and shake it over the stove forever like an idiot.
That’s exactly what I’m talking about! You kids today have got
it too easy. You’re spoiled!!!!!!!!!
You guys wouldn’t have lasted five minutes back in 1980!
Oh yea, and a seatbelt was Mom throwing her arm across your chest every time she hit the brakes.

My most favorite tape

Sorry that this has taken a while.  My tape player in my home decided it didn’t want to work anymore.  😦  

This is the original of my most favorite mix tapes.  For some reason (probably because we played it to death) we had to remake, but the remake wasn’t the exact copy of the original.  I’ll list the original and then copy as well

This is the original playlist

  • American Pie
  • Good Golly Miss Molly
  • Elvira
  • The Joker
  • You can Call Me Al
  • Love Potion #9
  • My Boyfriend’s Back
  • Summertime Blues (The original, not Alan Jackson)
  • Shake Rattle and Roll
  • Bohemian Rhapsody
  • Foxy Lady
  • Keep Your Hands to Yourself
  • 3 AM Eternal
  • Tutti Fruitti
  • Feed my Frankenstein
  • Hippy, Hippy Shake
  • Friends in Low Places
  • Things that make you go Hmmm….

That was the original.  When I remade it, I couldn’t find some of the albums, so I had to put different songs on it.  Side 2 starts with Bohemian Rhapsody and was heavily influenced by the movie Wayne’s World.
