I always remembered seeing this short film. I didn't remember much except the concept. For whatever reason I just remembered it again and actually found it online.


such a weird piece to have stuck with me forever. Must be some serious underlying FOMO going on.

In a nutshell, kids are in some odd time or world where it rains all the time. The rain finally stops for one day and the kids go out and actually see the sun but as a practical joke one of the kids had been previously locked in a room and misses it. They discover the fact only after the rain starts again. Avid readers probably will not it better because its Bradbury.

what are yours?

How many of you remember that you could collect these tumblers at Shell gas stations in the greater New Orleans area back in the 70s just by getting a fill-up? :grin:

I have a set of those.
They were sitting on my dads bar after Katrina flooded my parents house. The whole house was a mess
It was weird. Looked like people just had a few cocktails during the madness.
I still have them.

Playing hide and go seek with my friend, we were seven. While hiding, his mother came in the room naked from a shower. I was behind a rocking chair with a blanket over me and saw the entire buffet. That has stayed with me till this day. It was awesome !!!

I would imagine this could have been the day you became optimistic (about life), Ozzy.

This is must be pretty obscure because it took me a while to find, as i couldn't exactly remember the title (( thought it was something like "Final Destination") , but only the approximate year (before 1993). I don't remember it being in the theatres, I just saw it on VHS so it might have been a direct to video.

Final Approach

I didn't recognize a single name on the cast list, although James Sikking played Doogie Howser's dad and was also on Hill Street Blues. Also Hector Elizondo, though didn't recognize the name, does have alot of recognizable credits such as Chicago Hope.

I don't remember a whole lot about the movie, but I just remember it had to do with a test pilot who crashed an military aircraft, and the whole thing took place in the psychologists office. I do remember the "twist" at the end however.

So there’s music I heard on early am radio in the car that grew into continuing listening pleasure music
Then there’s the music that I primarily remember hearing in the car:
“Ain’t gonna bump no more no big fat woman”
“Spinning wheels”
“If it don’t fit, don’t force it”
“Don’t call us, we’ll call you”
“I got ya”
AM radio in the early 70’s
Steam
The Raspberries
The Jackson 5
Stealers Wheel
Three Dog Night
Bread
Paul Revere and the Raiders
Sonny & Cher
Nitty Gritty Dirt Band
