To the “New Footloose.”
Team Bacon all the way.
I’m actually a little horrified they’ve remade this movie. I know I have friends who want to go see it, but I just don’t. It’s a travesty. That would be like remaking 16 Candles, Dirty Dancing, Breakfast Club, Pretty in Pink or Any John Cusack movie…
Dear Movie Industry,
Quit messing with my childhood. Footloose is an iconic movie that should have been left alone. Your remake is unnecessary and as Matt Cherette of Gawker says, “will ruin your childhood when it hits theaters in October.” I don’t want my childhood ruined.
So yesterday on the way to school, one of the local radio stations was talking about old school rap and some of their favorite songs.
The boys were enjoying this topic, because “old people are funny” and “that’s not rap, that’s crap” and “omg I’m so glad I wasn’t alive back then” blah blah blah.
Anyone care to explain that if our ‘crap rap’ was so crappy, then why did they spend the entire day singing Buttermilk Biscuits? (which really was pretty crappy…but funny as hell)
To honor Sir Mix a Lot, here’s a few pics that had been buried from this summer…when I did karaoke with a couple of girlfriends at this year’s RWA Conference. Oh yeah. Baby Got Back.
Baby Got Back all right. Probably because baby really likes buttermilk biscuits. And bacon. Mmmmmmmm. Bacon.
There is video of said performance but it has been placed in a vault, sealed in concrete and buried beneath the ocean.
It’s true. I want bacon. Now. Maybe I’ll stop by the store on the way home this afternoon and fry me up a mess.
I had a great time yesterday in Arkadelphia. I heart librarians everywhere. They are the warmest and most supportive group on earth. Thanks for making me feel welcome. I hope you all enjoyed our discussion. Next time, I promise to dance and sing a little. Maybe I’ll do a number from Hairspray…
Did I mention I want bacon? Which makes me want to see Bacon Boy again. I love this kid.
C’mon over, Bacon Boy. We’ll fry up a skillet full of heart attack together.
Have a great weekend y’all. Love ya. Mean it.
If you’re reading this on FB, click here to see the video. It’s worth it.
This is one of the funniest things I’ve seen in a long, damn time.

okay and honestly, how could you not love a boy who says: “She’s gonna try to stop me, but she can’t run in those high heels.”
I heart this kid and want him as my own. C’mon son, you can have bacon at my house any time.
