It’s been one of those nights where every movie I like has to play all at the same time. I think I’ve had about four hours where I’ve done nothing but go back and forth to different channels. I’m not complaining really, but why do they all have to play at the same time. I’ve actually run out of movies for my dad to get me at the movie store. I have a few movies I got for Christmas, but I’ve watched them and not in a Vampire mood, there’s always a first I guess, right?
It started around five this afternoon. I started watching Blue Collar Comedy Tour and I had gotten into the first hour of it. It was on break and I was going back and forth to my music channels and I got my buttons mixed up and I clicked the numbers, 185. Which is our Hallmark channel. They were playing The Parent Trap. It was the scene where Hallie and her side planned that trick on Annie and her cabin girls. Yeah, after watching that part I couldn’t help myself so everytime one would go on break I’d switch over. I did this for about an hour.
My mom texted me saying something Metal Mania is next weekend and that Purple Rain was on. I already have the soundtrack on my iPod so I told her no, saying I was still watching The Parent Trap. I completely forgot about Blue Collar Comedy Tour. Then my movie was on break and I heard “The Beautiful Ones” I think in the living room, and I couldn’t help it. I switched over and I went back and forth between those movies. I started thinking I still can’t believe this worked when I was younger but nothing else in the 80s rock music did. Going back to when I was watching The Parent Trap that comes along with this. Everybody was at the Plaza and Meredith was talking to her parents and when she notices Hallie and her father and the whole family come up she says out loud, and I get it now of course. She says, “oh! There he is! And the whole Motley Crew.” Oh my god! Really?
So after that, I was on Twitter and I saw a trend. It was “watching The Lion King.” I thought to myself, well why is everybody trending this at one time. So I went looking when Purple Rain went to commercial. I found The Lion King on Disney. I about died. I was mad but yet happy at the same time. I didn’t have think twice, even though I was seriously considering it. I’ve been watching it ever since. I’m not moving the channel on a classic. I mean come on! If you think about changing the channel while watching this great movie, you obviously never watched these movies before. Well I’m gonna watch this movie and maybe when I get my headphones on later on tonight I’ll listen to the Purple Rain soundtrack.
