Another Descent Into...
Yesterday, NFL Comissioner Roger Goddell handed #7 a six-game suspension which can be reduced to four if he successfully completes a behavioral therapy program. My thought is this, the commish did the right thing. Ben has been walking the edge for quite a long time and it is about time he was called on his collegiate behavior. I don't care if the Steelers win another Super Bowl or not. I would rather see my team go 0-16 with players of some character than win with a bunch of off-the-field thugs. I only hope this will finally set Big Ben straight.
My Breakfast With Morgan Rankin
*In James Lipton voice* As an aspiring artist, one invaluable piece of advice I have received is the axiom, "Respect your roots, where you came from." My next guest has taken this to heart. She is the blogger for thekidinthehall.blogspot.com, a retro 80's blog.
She is 18 years old and has a big love for the 80's and film. Currently, she is planning on attending film school this fall to become a screenwriter, so she can make great films of her own.
Ladies and Gentleman,please welcome to my blog...
1. Why the 80's? What is it about my childhood decade you find appealing?
I love the 80's, because it just seemed like everyone that lived in that time was having fun. Everything from the movies, music, television, and fashion was just totally awesome! Even though I was a child of the 90's, I grew up watching a lot of stuff from the 80's.
2. What can your generation learn from the 80's?
I think what my generation can learn from the 80's, is to enjoy yourself. Life is short, and we all should make something good out of each and every day. It doesn't matter what it is, just as long as it makes the person happy.
3. What is the state of youth culture today?
The state of youth culture today is just a mess. No one is doing anything new, it's boring. No one is using their creative minds. Back then, people my age were always looking for new things to do. That's one of the reasons why I love the past, everyone was trying new things to make their generation really stand out.
4. What horror movie character from the 80's would you charge to wipe out all Twilight-induced mayhem?
Since we're talking "vampires" and 80's, I would send Edgar and Alan Frog from The Lost Boys. The Lost Boys was to me, a real vampire movie. Twilight is more of a love story and not horror at all. I don't believe that vampires sparkle. Haha.
5. Big shoulder pads or big hair? What would have been your fashion statement in the 80's?
Definitely big hair! I'm always teasing my hair. I can't pull off the shoulder pads, because I'm so short. My fashion statement would've been wearing a lot of band and movie shirts, like I wear today. I would be making my statement by showing off the things I love and what I'm all about on a shirt. Wham! had "Choose Life", I would have something like "Monster Squad rules!".
Thank You Ms. Rankin
The Cinema Snob-
Back from his state of wedded bliss, The Cinema Snob views Curse of the Cannibal Confederates, wishing the South will not rise again....
Well, the first of anything after an extended break is always rough, but The Snob handles his lengthy absence quite well. This is a funny episode, though not the caliber of some of his other work, but that's ok. You can't hit 'em out everytime. The movie itself would be one of those films I'd spent a vacation Saturday night just LMAO.
This will be my final post until next week but if you would like to be interviewed on My Breakfast With, shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. It doesn't matter your walk of life, everyone has a story to tell.....Watch out for snakes....
