my "i love the 80's" summer throwbacks...

ok, so since i don't have cable, i've been digging WAY back into my VHS box (for realz, i love VHS) and re-discovering my 80's collection of good shit. so here's my ongoing list of this summer's flicks! you should definitely check some, if not all of them:

the breakfast club (1985) - "don't mess with the bull, young man. you'll get the horns."

coming to america (1988) - "hey, baby, i'm almost single. my husband's on death row."

dirty dancing (1987) - "nobody puts baby in a corner.

ferris beuller's day off (1986) - "pardon my french, but you're an asshole! asshole!"

mannequin (1987) - um...old school kim catrell. nuff said.

ghostbusters (1984) - "i am the gate keeper."

the goonies (1985) - "THATS WHAT I SAID! BOOBY TRAPS! god. these guys!"

the last dragon (1985) - "shonuff!"

the neverending story (1984) - a flying dog, horses with lazer eyes and a dark nothingness that threatens to destroy society? yes please ;-)

the princess bride (1987) - "my name is inigo montoya. you killed my father, prepare to die."

purple rain (1984) - dudes, it's prince. it's appolonia. quit trippin'.

say anything (1989) - love, love, LOVE john cusak. AND joan cusak is in it too? they're like an older jake and maggie gyllenhaal to me. both great actors.

"i don't want to sell anything, buy anything or process anything as a career. i don't want to sell anything bought or processed...or buy anything sold or processed...or process anything sold, bought or processed...or repair anything sold, bought or processed. you know, as a career, i don't want to do that."

stand by me (1986) - "gordie just screwed the pooch!"

top gun (1986) - "i feel the need...the need for speed!"

wierd science (1985) - "by the way, why are we wearing bras on our heads?"

to be continued...

one love.

soooooo, yesterday i recorded a christmas jingle for the radio airwaves with brian mcknight. (brian mcknight? i know, it's been a while. think: " do i ever cross your mind, anytime..."). was pretty damn cool and crazily random.

you know, it was kinda like singing with miss lauryn hill all over again...but not, at the same time.

anyhoo, was just a random piece of goodness that i thought i'd share. have a fabulous day!

peace and luv.
