If, at the beginning of this season, you told me that this would be the last scene of Mad Men for 2014, I would have been very amused but I would have called you a lunatic. But here it is. And I love it.
Intense pangs of nostalgia Wednesday
Only a hop, skip and a jump or two from here to house.
Taken from this video, compiling commercials aired 1/2/77 on WKBD Detroit. Amazing slices of history, twenty seconds at a time.
My husband saw this around the time it came out and to this day will occasionally bring up how goofy this movie was. I have been afraid to watch it in case it fails to live up to my now high expectations of silliness.
Edit: Oh hey, didn’t realize you can’t just image post a gif.
My problem is that I have not rewatched Dreamcatcher in over a year.
In case you don’t know, it’s about four bros (Thomas Jane, Timothy Olyphant, Jason Lee and Damien Lewis as “Jonesy”) who got psychic powers when they helped a magical special-needs kid many years ago. They go to a cabin once a year to chill, but this year they’re attacked by monsters that come out of your butt.
Morgan Freeman plays a pair of secret government eyebrows that are hunting the butt monsters. A barely recognizable and barely intelligible Donnie Wahlberg plays the foursome’s childhood friend, who may hold the key to stopping said butt monsters before they take over everyone’s butt.
It’s based on a Stephen King story, and it’s one of the rare King adaptations that doesn’t gloss over that silly-as-fuck King vibe. Whether it’s because director Lawrence Kasdan and writer William Goldman liked the vibe or had no fucks left to give is unclear. Though prolific veterans of their craft, neither respectively directed or wrote a finished film again for about a decade. The industry was just straight shook.
If you ever hear about a TV reboot of this potential franchise you will know that I have become a big fucking deal.
This is my new favorite tweet
