It’s almost “Be Nice to NJ Week” (July 4-10). I am always nice to New Jersey. Bruce Springsteen rocks. So does Robert Hegyes aka Epstein, my favorite Sweathog. And Bon Jovi…need I say more? Plus my beloved Dodge Neon (now sadly defunct) was from a dealership in Gloucester City.
I didn’t have time on Tuesday, but this weekend I will once again celebrate Gary Busey’s birthday (June 29) by watching Silver Bullet, one of THE most spectacular movies of the 80’s or, dare I say, EVER.
Speaking of movies I love, this was the week Jaws came out, 35 years ago. Before my time, so they should release it in the theaters again. *Hint* *Hint*
My fun of the week was scoring 100% on the Mental Floss quiz where I had to match up Tom Hanks’ movies with scenes where he is relieving himself. “There’s no ‘P’ in Tom Hanks.” Should I be worried I found this quiz so easy?
Superpower of the week: the ability to eat six Saltines in a minute. I’m convinced it can be done. I must be the one to do it!
Is Kobayashi pulling out of the Nathan’s hot dog eating contest at Coney Island? He’s the only reason I even watched it.
I watched the new Karate (Kung Fu) Kid last weekend – I love movies like that, where you root for the main character and there’s a definite bad guy. Jaden Smith is a little dude, so it was painful (very painful) in some parts to watch him get his butt kicked. The new version seemed darker (back story) than I remember the original being. It almost kinda halted the movie for me at that horribly depressing “revelation” scene. And the moves at the end – wow, can Mr. Han be my teacher, too??? Holy crap! I’ll be the next Bruce Lee by the end of summer!
The year is now more than officially half over. 183/182
