I remember sitting at my friend’s house before going to a movie (I think it was Transformers, but I’m not sure) and this video came on MTV (back when they actually showed music videos). It sparked a huge debate about how Daniel-san executes the drum technique. Does he use his elbows or his palms? Let me tell you, the debate was fierce.
This is one of Christy’s favorite movies. She liked it so much as a kid that she even has a recording of her singing a version of this song karaoke-style. I’ve only been allowed to hear it once, so I wouldn’t expect to see it posted online anytime soon (not if I want to stay married, anyway :))
Christy has banned me from watching the movie with the kids. She wants to be the one to watch it with them. Kinda like I had to be the one to watch Star Wars with Aiden the first time he saw it. I don’t think it’s quite as inspiring as the first installment, but it’s pretty good.
* Pictured: Since Lincoln’s 200th birthday is coming up and a new presidential administration has been sworn in, I thought it was fitting to share a picture of me from my first trip to Washington, D.C. Each state in the Union has two statues in the U.S. Capitol’s Statuary Hall. I’m standing in front of Oliver Hazard Perry Throck Morton, from the great state of Indiana.
PS ~ I asked everyone in Twitterville for suggestions for this week’s Flashback Friday. Mark suggested I pick a movie from 1987. Well, I thought this was from 1987. Upon further review, the film is from 1986. That’s close enough, right?
