Does anyone remember the movies 'Loose Screws' or 'Summer Job'? I used to sneak downstairs at night when my mom was asleep and watch these movies as a kid during the 80s. By today's standards they are probably tamed, cheesy and stupid. But those movies were my doorway to manhood!
I also remember the show 1st and 10 that was on HBO. I found the entire series in the $5 bin in Walmart a few years ago!
You're more than welcome. Lets see... I remember some weird Showtime movie when I was around 13, where Maureen McGovern (as a grown up) was ... hmmm... participating, I think... with a man... or men... I can't remember... she may have been being abused... in a hotel room. Either way, the Brady Bunch never looked the same.
I remember Dana Plato from Different Strokes trying hard to shed her 'good girl' image from the show by posing nude. I think that child stardom is a blessing and a curse. A modern case and point is Lindsay Lohan. Poor kid.
I'm not calling anyone pathetic, that wasn't my intention at all. I was just mentioning that child stardom sucks for the stars when they grow up. I was just using Dana Plato and Lindsay Lohan as examples because Marcia Brady was brought up that's all.
No, I was only 10 when that came out. I just went to look it up on the internet and apparently many ppl saw what I saw but no one can prove it. How bizarre. I assumed it was a well known fact. It would have been around 81 or 82 I think and it was on Showtime late at night. Something I was definitely not supposed to be watching.
I confess I watch the Shameless series on Showtime. It is shameless, dirty, but hilarious. I just can't believe the plot lines they come up with. Last week you had this religious organization trying to cure "gay" Frank by furnishing him with lesbians who also want to be "cured." And then you have this white guy/black girl couple who are in love and want to have a baby, but she can't. So her mother is going to have their baby, and not by artificial insemination. Great stuff.
Mostly I watch sports, but everybody needs a little variety. I just watched the Penguins beat the Canadiens for their 13th win in a row! He's smiling like a butcher's dog. That's a Mike Lange saying. He's one of the announcers for the Penguins.
And next week baseball starts so I'll be real busy. Hey UnknownWon, thanks for the heads up. I just picked up Jackie Bradley Jr. for my fantasy team.
Yeah UnknownWon, that Shameless show is totally twisted, and it gets worse (or better, depending on your perspective) every week. I can't imagine what they'll come up for this week's episode. You would think they would run out of twisted shameless ideas, but not so far.
