    How old was everyone in 1979?

    This was the summer I turned 21.

    I’m curious how people respond to this. It’s campy and ridiculous, but when I saw it today after so many years, it made me well up with tears. All I can see are little boys whose lives are filled with pain, dancing alone in their rooms.

    Amen.

    I turned ten in 1979.

    So was it possible, in 1979, to watch this and just see heterosexual men wearing funny costumes?

    If you were raised on a farm. And you were retarded.

    10 points to anyone who gets the film reference.

    I’m not going to google it.

    Is Tom Hanks in it? That annoying, stupid film that everyone fucking loved where he played an annoying git?

  12. Cindy Scroggins on June 22nd, 2011 at 12:03 pm

    No Tom Hanks.

    I’ll give you a hint. It’s on my list of favorite films of the decade that I’m too lazy to link to.

    And don’t be dissing The Da Vinci Code.

    Ding-ding-ding! We have a winner!

    The killer thought he might like Bruges, if he’d been raised on a farm and was retarded.

    Cindy, I’ll see your film reference, and raise you one. Wadn’t Bruce Jenner init? I was 29. Girls, he’s had some work done since. It ain’t pretty. If we’re still talkin’ ’bout it, You Can’t Stop the Music.
