On this week’s podcast, I recount my childhood growing up in the 80’s and the 90’s. I also do a Blackcat Book Club segment where I take a look at a Sherlock Holmes novel written by an iconic Star Trek movie director.
Today I review an 80’s teen sex comedy with a very controversial and realistic ending, not to mention that it pretty much predicted today’s dating culture.
When I talk about Brett Ratner wanting to direct the remake of this movie, the link to the article is here: http://www.firstshowing.net/2011/brett-ratner-now-working-on-a-remake-of-the-last-american-virgin/
I just had an April Fools prank pulled on me on YouTube. I clicked on what I thought was a video from the popular YouTube star, “Hot For Words,” but instead the link took me to a music video I hadn’t seen since I was a kid. The video was the classic 80’s Rick Astley tune, “Never Gonna Give You Up.” It was a really good prank on YouTube’s part, given that today is April Fool’s Day.
In just a few hours, I will be headed back to work after my mini-vacation. Of course, I am not looking forward to it. It is dwelling like a pit in the bottom of my stomach. But it was a very good few days off. Now I have got to figure out when to take my next day off or even my vacation.
I do have some bad news. This is the last blog that I will be putting on this site.
Just kidding. April Fools. Ha, ha.
