Pollen in the air

Nicky Marotta Times Square

So I was about 8-9 years old when I first saw the movie Times Square on BBC2 in the afternoon. This film has two great leads in Robin Johnson and Trini Alvarado as Nicky and Pammy. The wonderful Tim Curry rocks my world as DJ Johnny, and this film really opened my eyes to the fact that girls were cool. As an 8 year old, girls were the enemy, they were stinky heads and my friends in school wouldn't go near them. This film made me realize girls can be just as awesome as boys, and for an 8 year old that was a big deal. Princess Leia was a good strong female figure don't get me wrong, but Pammy and Nicky were real to me, not off on some Sci Fi adventure in a space ship, but stealing an ambulance and making their music and living how they wanted to live.
Also the soundtrack for Times Square is better than cake...BETTER THAN CAKE!

Soundtrack on You tube that will sex your ears.

Also fuck trying to buy this film legitimately, people who managed to get the DVD when it was released are lucky, some store fronts on Amazon want over $140 for a copy...well fuck me Freddy, I'm not spending that much money on a DVD no matter how much I love this film! I had to buy a crappy bootleg of this film on ioffer... then found out the legit DVD has a frickin' commentary track with Robin Johnson.

I only have logic and emotion circuits. No room for craziness.

Police Robot Elle, from the great movie Star Crash.

Padme Amidala is purty

Why did George feel the need to kill this character with "a broken heart'.... really? really Mr. Lucas? Anakin had given her the old force neck squeeze... you could have explained it away with that, then Palpatine wouldn't have been a stinky old liar to Darth Vader and that would have made his character even more layered and crazy cool and oh my eyes have gone all crossed... gotta stop these Star Wars rants.
