Re: Shootings in US schools
Since it is obvious that we have briefly diverged...
The problem with the song "Brick House" is that I can never again hear that song in a "pure" context. I have seen a movie called To Wong Foo, Thanks For Everything, Julie Newmar starring Patrick Swayze, John Leguizamo, and Wesley Snipes as three blatant gay cross-dressers going to a Pride event in San Francisco, I believe. There is a scene where that music is playing as they drive cross-country to that event with the top down in their land-barge of a car and are bopping along in full drag as they follow a road that parallels a train track. It's one of the scenes that can't be unseen.
Got the same problem with Sister Sledge's "We Are Family" during the senator's escape scene in The Bird Cage (Robin Williams and Nathan Lane).
Got the same problem with Gloria Gaynor's "I Will Survive" thanks to the jail scene with dancing football players in the movie The Replacements with Keanu Reaves and Gene Hackman.
Great music, but sudden odd-ball associations have made it difficult to enjoy without having sudden bizarre movie scenes flash through my mind.
I'm a certified grandpa (3 times now) and proud of it.
Retired over one year and survived being home all day with the wife. She must really love me.
