    I like your choices.
    I might have picked Raising Arizona as my favorite 80s comedy–but I keep forgetting it came out in the 80s! The movie hasn’t aged a day.
    I’d probably stick with A Fish Called Wanda anyway (for favorite comedy) because it (still) makes me laugh harder than anything else. Pink Panther movies do me the same way.
    If I had to pick the three 80s movies that most made me who I am, I’d pick My Favorite Year, Repo Man and Fast Times at Ridgemont High.
    Can you believe I’ve never seen Real Genius?

    Real Genius is one of my top 5 favorite movies of all time. I currently have a teddy bear named Lazlo and I often wore my sweater tied over only one shoulder in tribute to the great Chris Knight.
    I lluuurve the test-taking montage….and Chris with the quarters and bunny slippers. Ayeee!
    Speaking of 80s, I am eagerly awaiting, drooling on my chin, for the new Tears For Fears (Roland & Curt) single that will be released to radio on Jan. 6, the new album in April, and the world tour. Humenahumena

    Ian,
    I would like to say that the window/head incident only happened because someone told me to be careful bouncing on the bed, that I might break a window. I take no responsibility for that persons inflamatory comments. Such provocations are irresponsible in a yeagermiester charged environment. By the way, nice plug for the Circle Jerks. I just downloaded Circle Jerks Live on ITunes last week. Keith Morris rules. I felt 16 years old again, headbanging to “Coup D’Etat” in my pick-up with a baby seat in the back. Get excited!

    you could have tied the first paragraph to the last one with the epic saga by Ed’s Redeeming Qualities called “Lawn Dart” – a great tune.
    “She was pegged in the head by a Lawn Dart,
    her Dad didn’t see her, that’s the worst part,
    now they’re off the shelves at the K-Mart,
    pegged in the head by a Lawn Dart”
    Going to have to dig out that CD tomorrow…

    Wow, Tears for Fears have a new song coming out? I though those two dudes HATED each other. Roland had a song called “Fish Out of Water” about Curt that was right up there with Lennon’s “How Do You Sleep?” bitch-slap to Paul.
    Salem, you spoke for a generation on that night. Don’t ever forget it.
    Andrew – I think I might have just purchased lawn darts from a guy online. I’ll write about it if it comes through.

    “Let’s get a drink” *buys six pack of black and white cans labeled ‘DRINK’*
    If you want to talk about 80s films:
    “Time Bandits” “Brazil” “The Adventures of Baron Munchausen” — Terry Gilliam just plain ruled.
    “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” “Sixteen Candles” “Uncle Buck” “Pretty in Pink”, even “European Vacation” — back before John Hughes started to suck. Did you know there was a “Home Alone 4”? WHY GOD WHY.
