26th January 1979

Friday 26
Go to Stafford on 5.20 train
A train got de
railed at Bootle (one of the train stops between Southport and Liverpool )
Left col
lege at 3.00
Went to
Binns for a coffee with Cheryl
Train = late
Left Cheryl
at 7.00
Sam was waiting for me = very very cold

Went to the Swa
n & the Woolpack
S
am gave me a Barry White single (still got it!!)


Like all Teen's I loved going to the cinema/ pictures/ flicks, still do. I was looking to see what was showing in 1979 ...... many have be saying to myself 'it is never that old?' but they are! For instance 10 & Bo Derek with her plaited hair (as well a figure to die for)



Other classics were
The scary stomach bursting Alien
Buck Rodgers in the 25th Century (so cheesy)
The China Syndrome what a thriller of the time
Clint Eastwood in the excellent Escape from Alcatraz
The weepy Kramer v Kramer

The Life of Brian classic lines such as Brian's Mum 'he's not the Messiah. He's a very naughty boy!' - superb comedy. It was on the telly over Christmas and it still makes me laugh.
Check out the quotes here)

Apocalypse Now a great film & soundtrack

Muppet Movie - I didn't see this until I watched it with my teen when she was little


And the Age of Aquarius film Hair - all that hippie culture, sexual revolution &
controversy

I still haven't seen 'The Life of Brian' - what are the chances. Got it on DVD as well - will watch it one day though - promise

..... and I saw the original stage production of 'Hair' - very disappointing - couldn't see a thing [or things]

Oh you simply have to watch it ... it is wacky, completely bonkers British humour.

I wasn't allowed to go and see Hair, my mum said it was 'that film full of naked people!!' I did see it on video some years ago but wasn't really that impressed .... may have to revisit

Kramer vs Kramer was a film I couldn't watch for years. I split form J's father when he was a baby and foolishly allowed them to go on holiday together a year later.

he took him to perth and refused to give him back. it took me 6 hysterical weeks of legal wrangling before I was able to snatch him up and make a run for the airport

Woah, that's a weird coincidence ... I was listening to Barry White just this afternoon ...

And I did love Dudley Moore in '10' even though my mother wouldn't let me have Bo Derek hair.

I lovethe smell of napalm in the morning! It's one of my favorite movie lines from one of my favorite movies!

but Alien is one of the scariest movies ever made--hands down!

Say, when did Star Wars come out?

70steen said...

Wow NM I can quite imagine that K v K was not the film top watch then ...... you certainly have had some 'stuff' happen in your life x

70steen said...

We plaited out own Bo hair but you can guess it looked nothing like it lol

70steen said...

Star Wars was 1977 wasn't it? I thought it was it's 30 year anniversary last year??????
