And, now, something completely silly and wonderful:

Tomorrow night's KUFO/Cort and Fatboy Midnight Movie is The Karate Kid.

I last saw the film with my college dormmates at an Oregon Coast beach house we rented for a weekend back in the mid-90s, and it was still kick-ass then. Now I'll get to see if it's still kick-ass now.

(By the way, I know from someone I trust that Pat Morita was an incredibly nice guy. That someone I trust, he worked with him once.)

The film's tomorrow (Friday) night at 11 at the Bagdad Theater and Pub in SE Portland. Doors open at 10. You have to be 21 or older. Tickets are $3.

Holy crap, I am there the same way that Ralph Macchio's facial hair isn't. (True story! I heard this on the radio once from Jon Cryer. Back in the Eighties Cryer and Macchio were going to be in the cast of Young Men With Unlimited Capital, a movie about the guys who put on Woodstock. Macchio wanted/needed facial hair for his role. And he couldn't grow it.)

The Karate Kid on the big screen again. It is now officially a cruel, cruel, cruel summer...

God I love that movie. And #2 as well... #3 is kinda crappy.

Ok, I'm sorry, I have to say it.. "Wax On, Wax Off."

You can now smack me. :)

Hey, I wouldn't be surprised if #2 still holds up.

My favorite comment ever on The Karate Kid Part III, from Charles Fleischer: "Oh, Karate Kid III, can you imagine what that's gonna be about? I HAVE NO IDEA. What, you think he'll learn some moves and get into a fight with a big, bad guy and win? No chance! It'll probably have another surprise ending, like La Bamba."

Heh... Yeah, III was really bad.

And of course, I had to go watch KK last night after this post, just because.

    I am glad you exist and that you're choosing to blog!

    Maybe not feeling poetic is a poetic state all its own?

    Try to capture that feeling - I think that will be reflective of many folks'…

    I think I should wait until I have something better to brag about.

    I think it's okay to talk about your life, if you have something you want to share, even if you are doing well.
