I never placed Jane Wiedlin in Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure before, and yet there she is. She was, easily, my favorite Go-Go--though I like Belinda Carlisle a bit, too.

Since I'm admitting only slightly embarassing things here, I'll admit another: I paid box office money to see Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure. At the time, I loved it too.

So there.

I am curious Red(box). It's just one of those odd kind of curiousities--you know, like wanting to stick one's tongue to a frozen flagpole. I am, however, glad that A Christmas Story saved me from trying that myself. Well, that and moving away from the frozen north at an early age probably helped a bit as well.

The SNL skit I just watched was based around Hall & Oates. I cannot believe it. Not quite making my dreams come true, per se, but know you.

Quarantine is another thing that has piqued my curiosity. Unfortunately, I have run into a bit of lesson planning block--there is such a thing, is there not? I have an assignment due two weeks from this coming Saturday, and my long and drawn out Tolstoy-esque history of procrastination has revealed to me that waiting until the last minute would probably not be the best idea. A lesson that took only a few years for it to take. So, I will very likely not go see Quarantine.

Part of me now wishes I'd seen the original version of Life on Mars. I thought about it, but by the time I got to it I was way behind on the BBC version. Bah.

That's really all I can say about this.

Even scarier still would be how much more commonplace than unusual this probably is.

I do have to admit, in my own life I grew up watching things at a much younger age than I should have. Keep in mind that coming from a single parent home gave me more opportunities to see things that I otherwise wouldn't have.

You can yell at my mom, if you'd like nonetheless.

Your choice.

So, Sleepaway Camp. What a doozy!

IFC is still running its Grind House on Friday nights, and I happened to catch it then--thanks to TiVo, of course. Ended up finishing it during lunch a little while ago. Not only was that one shown, but David Cronenberg's Crash was tagged along with it. It's been a long time since I've seen it, and I have a feeling that I'll be just as disturbed by it now as I was then. I am unsure, however, if IFC choose to edit anything or ran it uncut--they typically don't edit that I can recall, though.

We ended up adding HBO to our DirecTV package and I was happy to see Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me was on. Sadly, it was on at one in the morning, but then TiVo took care of that problem as well.

Sundance had something called Spider Forest on the other evening--the first few minutes were intriguing, though vicious.
