Cut Loose

This is me and my friends in 1984... in my mind.

My mom pointed out this video to me, since she knows I love Footloose:

I know that seems weird, but I really do like this movie. It’s even in my top 20, I believe. It just captures a big snapshot of my youth, despite the fact that nothing in the movie actually happened during my own particular youth. Playing chicken on a tractor? Fighting a local law prohibiting dancing? Crossing the state line to go to a bar and dance with some rednecks? Angry warehouse dancing? I can’t say I enjoyed any of those activities, but for some reason, the movie always makes me nostalgic. And with great music and dancing, how can you say no:

Anyone else out there like Footloose as much as I do? I know I’m not alone. I can’t be.

You must respect the "Balloon View Cam." You simply must!
