My Top 5 Favorite Movies From The Non-Existent In-Car DVD Player Of My Youth

For all intents and purposes; I was born in 1979. When there was hi-fi not wi-fi. I’ve been on several family road trips spanning chasms of time I’ll never get back. I swear, one time we spent 11 hours in a car and 5 of it was stand-still traffic. I actually started to contemplate eating my brother towards the end. If you grew up in that era you can understand what it was like to sit in a car and watch your youth die on the vine as you breathed in the fumes.

Tonight, my son asked me what movies I used to watch on long car rides when I was a boy. After laughing for 17 minutes I decided to *screen cap* a few of my favorites from IMDB. I’m going to show him them in the morning. I thought some of you would enjoy them, too. I’m sure most of you watched the same movies on your road trips that I did while stuck in the backseat of a car in the 80s or previous. In no particular order, My Top 5 Favorite Movies From The Non-Existent In-Car DVD Player Of My Youth:

The Cat Says What?

???????????????????????????????????????

Mewing is my least favorite word in any language. Is it pronounced myoo-ing, moo-ing — or am I supposed to pronounce it as meowing, but the o is non-existent? I’m not looking for clarification. I’m just letting it be known where I stand when the great mewing vs. meowing war begins. Every time I see it my eyeballs cringe. To me it’s like using the word borking to explain the sound a dog makes.

My Librarian

Liberry

Quote from talking with my wife last night on the porch. The picture is of one of our bookshelves. The NSA may spy on me, and my mother may pry at me, but in the end my librarian knows more about me than anyone.

Out Through The Inlet

Corson’s Inlet in Ocean City, NJ. Beautiful, surreal, breathtaking and relaxing.

Light, Color, Shape | Downtown

I took the 6am Red Line to downtown Pittsburgh today. The sun was casting light and shadows everywhere. Every corner and alleyway had a different palette. The Pride Fest parade was this morning also, so I lucked out with a few streets being completely blocked off. See, the LGBT community does make life better for […]

Fireworks in the Backyard

Our neighbor stopped over yesterday to tell us the town has a fireworks show every year on the Sunday before Memorial Day. She said we were in a prime spot to see them. I looked at our hill and thought, “What the hell. I’ll grab the camera and see if any of them are even […]
