28 Thoughts I Had While Watching the Rocky Horror Remake
The Linda

The Rocky Horror Picture Show is a cult classic with generations of fans spanning the globe. So, naturally when FOX released that they would be remaking the film, a variety of reactions erupted. Some were excited to see their favorite film recreated...others, skeptical. Here is a thought by thought summary of how the remake went for my suite mates and me:

1. Is that Madonna? No? Ok.

2. Why'd they have to change the quote on the wedding car?

3. Brad totally added a "that" in front of "you beat the other girls to the bride's bouquet," don't think I didn't catch that...

4. I guess we can sprint through "Over At The Frankenstein Place."

5. Ok, Magenta's faux-English accent is rough to listen to.

11. Does Frank-N-Furter think Brad's name is "Bread?"

12. Why is Rocky in an ice bath?

13. Someone, please fix Rocky's dark brown roots.

15. These accents are truly awful, though.

16. How is FOX going to go about these bed scenes?

17. To be honest, the original silhouette idea seems a little less raunchy.

18. How did Janet and Rocky get from the ice box, to the bed, back to the ice box?

19. They took out that pivotal shot?

22. Uh, this "Wise Up, Janet Weiss" scene got quite abusive since the '70's.

Alone At The Met

I survive a day alone in NYC.

It was six in the evening. I was sitting in the courtyard of a Renaissance-era Italian villa, glancing around at the statues, most notably one of a boy removing a thorn from his foot. Despite the supposedly relaxing setting, I was incredibly anxious. My phone was at less than 5 percent battery, and once it died I would be completely disconnected from my family and peers, alone in one of the largest art museums in the country.

On September 3rd, 2001, a sea of children littered my home's navy-carpeted den to watch baseball during my dad's 40th birthday extravaganza. A baseball game flickered on the TV, and a red and blue bubble of a scoreboard sat in the bottom right corner of the screen. The New York Mets and the Philadelphia Phillies were in a wild game at Veterans' Stadium. As I, a five-year-old boy with a jumble of curly blonde hair, sat in the back of the kid clump, I wondered which team I should root for. After a long debate with myself, I decided that I should root for the team that's winning (duh). But, as the ninth inning rolled around with the Phils maintaining a 7-5 lead, some magic occurred. The Mets put up five runs in one frame, stunning the Phillie fans in the room and winning the game 10-7.
