It Sounds Dirty

I'll admit it; it's nothing to be ashamed of, right? I've Googled myself a time or two.

This weekend, I checked out my nom de blog, though, and found this:*

* warning: the soundtrack isn't appropriate for the workplace, or around small children, or, frankly, around anyone. But it'll make you laugh until honey comes out your nose.

I also got a chance to watch an old movie this weekend. GHOSTBUSTERS is such a classic! Brilliant set-up of character, setting, conflict, and rising action. But the dialogue still seems like the highlight to me:

"Ray when someone asks
if you're a god, you say—YES!"

And for years, I used the phrase:

"I love this plan—
I'm excited to be a part of it!"

The special effects don't really hold up--it was made pre-CGI. Since I started writing in earnest, I'm more aware of the puppet-strings of books, shows, and movies. It ruins a lot of TV watching when you guess the ending six minutes into the opening.

But, when a story really pops, it's chocolate for the mind.

Was GHOSTBUSTERS the first movie to trash New York City since King Kong?

I don't remember watching Ghostbusters for the special effects, even back in the day. Watch Zombieland - Bill Murray does an awesome cameo in that one.

The characters and their quirky comments are what held my attention.

I also love "Back To The Future," Michael J. Fox was great in it.

I loved Back to the Future!

The sequels weren't as good as the first, but I remember the urban legend that the sports records book from the future listed "Florida winning the pennant."

...before Florida even had a baseball team, which DID win the pennant in the year mentioned. Oooh.

BTW, that "future" is five years from now. Where are the flying cars? I want my flying car.
