Love is in the air. Valentine’s Day is just a few days away, so it only makes sense that this week’s topic relates to items we hold close to our hearts. This week’s assignment from the League of Extraordinary Bloggers:
Write a stream of conscious post listing the things you love and hold dear.
Well, since my blog has focused on movies, soundtracks, TV shows and more recently random pop culture things. I will keep my list to things within that realm… but let's get real, that's really the only stuff I love. Get ready to be hot and bothered... or annoyed that Star Wars doesn't appear on my list.
I love the PREDATOR monster/character what-have-you. I love the movies (blindly), the soundtracks, the comics, the toys, the EVERYTHING!
I love the first two ALIEN films, two classics. Horror, action, sci-fi, it's got it all.
I love movie soundtracks to my favorite films of the 80s. Listening to them takes me back to the films. I can see them in my head, it's as if I'm watching the film. I'm often reminded of when I would hold a cassette recorder up to the TV to record my own personal movie soundtracks.
I loved when this blog was soundtrack centric and I was able to turn people onto soundtracks they never heard or provided them with that out-of-print gem they had been hunting for.
I love the Masters of the Universe: The 80s era primarily. The cartoons (She-Ra included), the figures and all the wonderful memories I have of playing with them in my bedroom when I was little.
I love 70s-80s horror films.
I love 80s action films.
I love all the originality I felt was coming out of the 80s with films and toys.
I love discovering a weird old book or toy at a thrift store and paying a super cheap price for something amazing. (Its pretty rare if this happens, so it's a real treat.)
I love blogging, but it feels like I don't always have time for it, but when I do get a post up I do quite enjoy it!
I love Big Trouble in Little China and The Thing. John Carpenter and Kurt Russell really shook the pillars of heaven there.
I'm not the only one to share my love of the weird, the fantastic and memorable. Check out some of my fellow League members.
