80s High School Reunion

80s Channel by dag

They say when you start to reminisce, your life has peaked. If that's true, my life peaked around 1991. Welcome to 80s reunion. This is a collective for people into 80s music, movies and culture.



Spielberg says what Lucas won't

Amazing statement, so succinct. So true. If only Lucas would agree with this and stop all the nonsense.

Beautifully relevant quote: “I realized that what I had done was I had robbed the people who loved E.T. of their memories of E.T. And I regretted that.” By way of penance—and reinforced by informal audience poll—Spielberg promised that the upcoming Blu-ray release of E.T. would have only the original, untouched, guns-and-penises version.

Drew Cummings Entertainment Group's 80s Movie Documentaries

AIRPLANE, a melodrama! No humor!

Not embeddable so I share it in here:

"There is an apocryphal story of Groucho Marx meeting the Pope.
On being introduced, the Pope said 'Thank You Mr Marx for all the humour you have put into the world.'
Groucho replied 'And thank you for all the humour you have taken out of the world'.

'Airplane, a melodrama!' is a Hollington & Kyprianou re-edit of one of the funniest films of all time with all the gags taken out.

Running time 14 minutes..."

Clip Art Makes My High School Reunion Shit

I just got this in the mail today, an invitation to the Class of '85's 25 Year Reunion. Outside of reducing the image size (to easily fit on the screen), cutting off the right third of the page (the reservation form) and obscuring the location (I don't need any of you savages dropping in and pretending to be me), it is completely unaltered.

Unfortunately I will not be in attendance, though the boxed wine is awfully tempting. I really did not like high school. All of that "best days of your life" shit is for the birds. I really don't care to see middle-aged versions of people I generally didn't care for when they were in their prime. So sue me.

On the dark side of things, on the back of the invitation there was an 'In Memory' section that listed nine people (out of class of 300 or so) who have already died. Jesus. I suppose statistically speaking that this is normal, but it sure doesn't make you feel confident about your expected life span.

Anyway, have any of you attended a class reunion? How was it? And if you happen to know, how many ghosts has your class given up already?
