Labor Day 2014…
Time to put away the grill, after using it one more time (let it cool down first).
Time to dig out the dark clothes, Halloween decorations, Christmas decorations…DON’T PUT THEM UP YET!
Time to get the car winterized.
Time to save up for Christmas gifts.
The movie theaters will be less crowded. Speaking of which…
I have to say that this summer film season has been O.k…Not good or awesome, but O.k. Earlier, I had posted a mid-summer film review.
Admit it, this summer was not particularly epic as far as blockbusters were concerned. However, it was not a total fail-fest.
Does that mean I will not be seeing any films this fall/winter? Nope.
I am still interested in seeing Birdman. Supposedly, this will be Michael Keaton’s comeback of sorts. Everyone is even talking Oscar nomination!
Originally, I was looking forward to seeing it along with Kingsman: The Secret Service…But, that got pushed to winter…February 13th…To go up against Fifty Shades of Grey…Valentine’s weekend…Smooth move, Fox!
It’s not that I do not have faith in K:TSS, it’s like D.C. moving their Batman VS. Superman movie so it wouldn’t compete with Marvel’s Captain America 3 in 2016; admitting possible defeat in the box office race…or admitting that the film might be crap! Ugh!
30 years ago, I never would have imagined what summer 2014 would have been like…or 1994…or 2004…
1984 was one of the best years of my life. I was officially a teen! The films of the year for me were The Karate Kid and Ghostbusters. That year brought along the best 4th. of July ever! We had every kind of firework there was and blasted almost each piece with reckless glee…Until the cops came and confiscated them…
I can still see the smirk on that cop’s face as my cousin had his hand over my mouth muffling the obscenities toward the evil civil servant… and me almost throwing a giant punk stick at his cruiser as he drove away (I missed and hit the bush instead)!
Thank god he didn’t see it! Otherwise, well…It would have made one huge dent in my future!
I still insist to this day that he was “confiscating” those fireworks for his kids! Seriously! Because there was still fireworks going off for days and even weeks after!*
O.k…Enough stories of childhood trauma. Read the book!
(If I ever write one.)
The other 10 year intervals:
- 1994…Worked, drank…Not much.
- 2004…Trying to find full-time work, drank…Not much.
- 2014…Worked, not much drinking, helping my mother out…Not much.
Prediction for where I see myself in 10 years:
Won a poop-load in lottery…Retired at palatial estate in Beverly Hills, married my celebrity crush…Sitting on the shore of Lake Whoknows…Not much.
All I know is that life is short and moves pretty fast. If you have children, please show them this blog post.
However, I will not leave you on a down note.
There were other good times between ‘84 and now. There is just too much to list…
And that is a good thing!
*NOTE: I do not have contempt for all law enforcement…Just the one’s that abuse the system.
