The Breakfast Club
“…demented and sad, but social“- John Bender
i have quoted that line as a means to defining most of my social situationships )- since seeing the breakfast club at ? 12? 13??
One of my most stirring emotional memories from that bizarre ‘Pre-teen,pre-potsmoke/parent-liquor-stealing-shitmix-drinking/jaded-but-not-really-just-sheltered’ periods in my life..is from the afternooon after seeing The Breakfast CLub .
-man. what a strong moment :muggy white summer sky- 12 years old laying flat on a big orange and blue trampolines, a mashup of lacoste shirts, swatch watch x3 on each of our pastie wrist-..and our minds were being blown and our braces filled teeth frothing out emotional inspired resolutions .. what just happened in the movie and what it meant for us..there.. in west vancouver in june on a trampoline…it must be a big moment to be this clear in my now weary faded moments mind …
swirling rushes of so much awesomeness..
the first stirring of some-yet unidentified feeling .
of impending adventures…instilling excitement beyond our scope of articulation:
the first hint of independance..of rebellion
a sense of hope for who we would become.
Thank You John Hughes for your huge contribution to my pre-teen sense of self …Your movies were the first of my Best-Ever-moment.==this is how some of the life lessons i garnered from your films :
The breakfast club :
i am going to have experiences and friends that will be like no others ever again-: and to reap the adventure from within the chaos that is highschool –
Ferris Bueller’s Day Off:
-Told me that Being Popular is about being The fun executor- not exludor- (*also when you steal your dads car -the odometer can’t be turned back- )
Some Kind of wonderful:
promised we deserve the proper romantic ending -just like watts.
