Back When things Made Sense

Hot Patootie-Bless My Soul

Tis the season and time to start getting in the mood. I thought I would learn how to use a new toy.

Yeah -- Those were the days, my friend...

Do you plan to dress up this year? I'm hoping you do something from back in your "gender bending disco days" -- and then post a picture of it for us.

There aren't many visions that I find more aesthetically pleasing than a guy in mascara, eyeliner, and pretty platform shoes. I'm not kidding.

How did you get the YouTube picture up like that? I want to do that at my blog too.

Make an account at YouTube and follow the steps. Very simple and pretty much on auto pilot.

Google who owns Blogger just bought YouTube for something like 1.6 BILLION dollars in stock today.

That was fun. It's been a few years since we rented the movie. I must be getting older because Meatloaf is looking younger.

Were you the kind of kids who went to the midnight screenings? I've only gone as the chauffer to non-driving teenagers, but you're in a different demographic!

I lost my virginity to Frankenfurter in college.

Maybe I was a teenager just under 20?, but that was in the brief window after Vietnam when 18 to 21 year olds were legal adults.

It often comes on TV this time of year on VH1, Bravo or the like.

Thanks again, Christopher -- That was wicked easy! Now I have twenty YouTube videos at my blog. I added one of them to my August 20th post, but all the others are included in today's posts.

Annie, I went to one midnight screening of Rocky Horror Picture Show at around the same age as Christopher -- 19 years old, I think. The audience was as entertaining for me as the movie. The theater was in a college city, and even though the "legal adult" age was raised a few months after I turned 18 (here in Mass, anyway), the movie theater workers -- who were barely legal adults themselves -- routinely let even sixteen-year-olds get in to see the soft porn movies.

That brings back memories! Annie's comment about Meatloaf looking younger is funny too.

I used to go to the midnight screenings in Houston and, later, Raleigh. But the first time was the best, and I can still remember the local double for Frankenfurter strutting his stuff on the stage below the film. What an eye-opener it all was for a small-town girl.
