Welcome to the wonderful world of entertainment.
Entertainment, unending torrent of pure hell, whatever.
We’re in the home stretch of this experiment, which, as you know, involves watching Top Gun (or other movies) every week for a year. But, having been here before, you were already privy to this information, so let’s quit the expository pleasantries and make with the science.
The science is mostly me getting shitty ’80s pop and forced dialogue stuck in my head. Behold! Week #43!

10:17am EST – “Heaven In Your Eyes” stuck in head after reading my own article about reading my own article. Mentally mashed it with “I Believe (When I Fall In Love It Will Be Forever).”

11:20pm EST – Watching Star Trek: Deep Space 9, “In the Hands of the Prophets.” Keiko says, “I’m a teacher.” Heard Charlie say, “I’m an instructor at this school.”
What does Chief O’Brien see in this woman?

8:11pm EST – Watching Casablanca. Rick and Lou are watching a plane take off. Begrudgingly pictured Maverick pondering his future on the runway. The score from that scene was stuck in my head for most of the rest of Casablanca.
–END OF NOTES–
Holy hell, where did I go right this week? Just three results? And only one ruining one of the (alleged) greatest movies ever made!
“You can be my wing man any time.”
Becca and I are trying to do the AFI 100 (both lists merged), but we’ve fallen behind because I only have time to watch one movie these days. *sigh* And we’ve all complained about this. As someone who tries to get a few movies in every week, it sucks using all my movie time for Top Gun and then writing about Top Gun. And on top of that, when I do get to treat myself to a movie, it just reminds me of Top Gun. But alas, I knew the job when I took it (ie. gave it to myself and convinced fellow idiots to join me), and I shall see it through to the end with minimal complaints.
Even with The Godfather on deck.

Hey! Hate reading? Here’s a video about me turning into a mutant. Enjoy.
I’m the best there is at what I do. But what I do best is lame.
