In Memory of the Brat Pack

My insomnia revisited me yesterday (also, I was emailing a dear friend, Bret Charlie! It’s been ages since we’ve caught up and I’ve known him since 2000, the darling). I, thus turned my attention to the Bio Channel, featuring the Brat Pack. Yes, the Brat Pack comes on the Bio Channel right after Nelson Mandela and before the Dalai Lama.

Lord, I loved the Brat Pack era of movies – from major movies like Sixteen Candles to the slightly more obscure ones like Lucas. I have excluded Demi Moore and Emilio Estevez from my personal list of Brat Pack (how dare I?) mostly because Demi is a huge star now and who cares about Emilio? Honestly.

Come on.
Come on.

I would also like to nominate sub-Brat Pack members.

I need the kind of friends who would be willing to spend an entire Saturday doing thematic movie sit-ins. I did Lord of the Rings once – ran for fricking 12 hours – I had one sore ass but you feel a sense of accomplishment one cannot receive at work or in real life.

Sidenote: One movie I haven’t seen in ages is Heathers. Kinda hard to come by though.
p.s. I’m watching Flight of the Conchords now (that’s how much there’s nothing on) and Bret (Brit) is doing a fantastic “angry” dance rendition of Footloose. It must be fate.
