Stargazers, can you believe September is right around the corner? What's even harder for me to believe is that in less than a month it will have been a year since I let the doctors get a hold of me. After all their slicing, dicing and watch-leaving, I had four long months of recovery and then BAM! it was back to the daily grind. Since February, movies have been my primary source of diversion. That is until now. Reel Whore is headed to DragonCon for my first vacation since July '08!
As I sift and sort my way through the massive tome the Con calls the Pocket Guide, I can't help but hum the only tune appropriate for an exciting road trip. Oh yes, as a child molded by eighties movies, this Monday Mood Music selection encapsulates the giddiness building within me. I can only hope I experience nothing as disheartening or frustrating on my excursion as Clark Griswold did driving the Truckster cross country in National Lampoon's Vacation.
I don't know about you, but Holiday Road is one helluva fun song. I always associate this song with Chevy Chase and the hilarious hi jinks of the Griswolds. Until today I never knew it was performed by Lindsey Buckingham of Fleetwood Mac. I also never knew it had one of the most boring music videos ever. The blank faces, foggy background and red lighting tries to suck the peppiness right out of the song. If you don't know what I'm talking about, here's your chance to see Holiday Road in a whole different light:
...Praise Marty Moose! Holy Shit!
