“Flashback Friday” is supposed to evoke a fond memory from our past, typically during our formative years. If a Guns N’ Roses music video from 1987–in front of and behind the camera footage–doesn’t qualify, then I don’t know what does.
Sweet memory of mine indeed, both musically and the time period that’s long gone. The era, the unrestrained rock n’ roll lifestyle on-and-off the stage, the city and the musicians all lined up for Guns N’ Roses for several years for something that was uniquely epic before, well, you know.
But now it’s better again. It’s a flashback that came full circle for a flash forward.
Happy Flashback Friday.
Martin Short is one of the funniest people on the planet. Martin Short never appears to be, well, short of comedic confidence (c’mon, it wrote itself). He also has the tendency to transform into absurdly wild, yet hysterical characters.
In today’s flashback on a Friday afternoon, let’s travel back a couple years to
Martin Short Jiminy Glick interviewing the brilliantly astute comedy icon Jerry Seinfeld.
What’s the deal with Jiminy Glick?
He’s odd…ly entertaining.
A lot of sand is nothing to write home about. However, THE Sandlot is an entirely different (and thoroughly entertaining) story. Aside from the fact it’s been a quarter-century since The Sandlot premiered in movie theaters, this film is timeless and will always be 25 kinds of awesome.
What’s more trying: Avoiding the famed pitfalls of Friday the 13th or attempting to recover a baseball signed by Babe Ruth (or Baby Ruth, for true Sandlot fans) hit over a neighbor’s fence and into a backyard guarded a monstrous dog?
Well, you’ll only want to relive one on repeat.
Friday is finally here.
The only thing missing is a flashback. And with a certain low-budget, independent film now in theaters, it seems fitting to feature a movie trailer about a story that takes place in the future, yet is simultaneously defined by the past.
Ready Player One is now playing in movie theaters.
P.S. Steven Spielberg has done it again!
