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:
1. The Scenery
2. How Much Crap Can I Do To My Brother While He’s Sleeping?
3. Empty Threats 2
4. The Quiet Game
5. Hell Road: The Last Ten Minutes
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.
