I used to love watching movies with my family and of course, my brothers. This full length movie was a dear favorite.

Let me know if you like it, have seen it or whatever... it is something to kick back and chill with..I might even take a snooze and listen to it as I must have seen three time's or so in my life.

Here is a friendly buddy song that makes one feel calm at home, what not... probably not for driving with though as it has relaxing effect,

I grew up on a steady diet of Ernest and Peewee Herman...

...I think that's big part of whats wrong with me.

Can't pick a song. Too many. One of the best movies of all time is the Princess Bride though. EVERYONE likes that one.

Sorry I don't really remember much of the 80s. Except that I was a post toasty.

Valley Girl with Nick Cage and Deborah Foreman - still my favorite from 1983. I was in HS and we all were dressing like "Valley Girls."

Best sound track too, with the Plimsouls -"Million Miles Away" and "I Melt With You" - Modern English.

Great Times. Great Memories.

- Plimsouls

- Modern English

Thanks for the thread OP. Such simpler days.

Karate Kid was the first movie we owned after my parents got a VCR. My siblings and I watched it probably 100+ times. We could recite the entire movies dialog word for word. I was so pumped up after my first viewing, I was karate kicking things for months.

Enjoy this classic snippet from my childhood.

And I'd be remiss not to include this one:

Peppycat get well soon!

You do not have to answer each post... just a touch base every now and then.

I love 80's era U2 and REM. Such great music. The Cure, Joy Division/New Order, The Alarm, Television, Sonic Youth... just some great stuff. And the movies were gooď too.
