July 9-15, with no previous warnings or announcements, turned out to be one of the raddest in recent history. It all started with a spider...
  1. Spider-Man: Homecoming
    I never expected to be moved as much as I was by this movie, and I never expected I would call it my favorite entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Tom Holland is fantastic. The entire cast is wonderful. I got emotional over a display of backpacks at Costco. Larbed it!
  2. Baby Driver
    Two movies in one week and they were both brilliant. Baby Driver was a killer mix-tape-as-heist film and a validation for those of us for whom music is the true joy of driving.
  3. The Tick trailer
    Ever since seeing the pilot on Amazon Prime back in October, I've been super stoked for this latest iteration of one of my all-time favorite comic books. The trailer only stoked that...stoked. Super stoked!

Other than being seriously pissed off I can't visit Honolulu, circa 1972 (why isn't time travel a thing????), some things made me crazy happy this week.
  1. This week's jam: "Blinded by the Light" by Manfred Mann's Earth Band. https://youtu.be/pqTE1JvI-mE 🎶Revved up like a deuce Another runner in the night🎤😆🎶
  2. Picked up a copy of "Milk" on blu-ray for $5 at Everyday Music in Beaverton. SO HAPPY!!!
  3. Still can't wrap my brain around how freaking cute Emile Hirsch is in it.

This was my first time watching American Graffiti since beginning my obsession with mid-century American pop culture a year ago. Again, wondering what took me so long.
  1. American Graffiti, 1973, dir. George Lucas. Starring Ronny Howard, Richard Dreyfuss, Charles Martin Smith. Filmed on Fourth Street in San Rafael and downtown Petaluma.
  2. "Hey! You know a guy with a piss-yellow deuce coupe? Supposed to be hot stuff?"
  3. "It's bitchin', tuck-and-roll. You know, I really love the feel of tuck-and-roll upholstery." (I'm with Debbie, tuck-and-roll is the most!)
