Okay, So I Know I've Been Lagging, But Hopefully, This Will Tide You Over...

It's been a flurry of craziness around my household, with old clothes flying and new clothes trying... back-to-school shopping has commenced (more on that in another post, I promise).

But, until then, I wanted to share something else. A bit of fun "fluff", if you will. Another thing that warms the cockles of my very heart.

As is typical here, I went to rent movies on Friday. This is done, fairly ritualistically, because there's virtual CRAP on TV on the weekends. Disappointingly enough, there was crap left on the shelves in the video store, too (guess everyone has the same idea in the summertime).

So, I came up with a grand idea. Genius, even. I went to the "classics" section, and made it a John Hughes night. What a blast! Not only are the movies just a small slice of Heaven, the memories abound with the clothes, the hairstyles, the atmosphere, and the teenaged angst.

So, without further ado, I share with you three of my favorite scenes from the movies I rented:

1) Duckie's infamous rendition of Otis Redding's "Try A Little Tenderness":

Oh, and for the youngin's that come and visit my blog... those things that Duckie's leaning against are called albums.

2) The gang from "The Breakfast Club" dancing to Pinback (what I would have given to get five minutes alone with Judd Nelson back then! Sigh...)

Again... an album is being played here. This is the land before iPod.

3) Sixteen Candles. Love the whole movie... so here's the trailer:

Enjoy.... hot stuff! :)
