80s Sighting: The Muppet Movie
Happy New Year! I'm starting right off w/ one of my resolutions---and that's to live up to the 80s portion of my Blogger byline. All last year I noted 80s references popping up everywhere, and this year, whenever I find one of note, I'm gonna tell you about it. Lucky you, eh?
Last week I went to see The Muppets---which was so awesome. If you were ever a Muppets fan you must see it---and I was tickled to see brand new character, 80s Robot. I was even more happy to find this short clip of the "modem" scene to share with you (note the Top 40 song from 1980 playing in the background---can you name the song & artist?):
"Here in my car... "
That was one of those songs that I am almost positive I sing the lyrics wrong. lol!
Here in my car... that's all I have. Techno pop.
Cars? Gary Numan?
Wish you a Happy New Year.
I had a nice 80s fix of my own last night - "Adventureland." Have you seen it? Yes, it's Kristen Stewart in all her "Meh, uhh, blehhh..." glory, but she's tolerable, and the other characters are endearing enough to make up for it. Not to mention the 80s setting and soundtrack. Wicked awesome.
