No, Heather. It’s Heather’s turn. Heather?

Psst. Me again.
Today, I’m my own Guest Poster.
Because I’m sick. I have a cold from Hell, and I feel like hammered owl shit.
(No, I don’t know what that is…my Dad said it all the time. It seems to fit, though.)

So, here’s another post I ripped off from myself – from Vacuity again.  I have such great stuff over there – it’s a shame nobody reads it. Like, I bet you missed my National Bundt Day post, didn’t you? It was a thing of beauty…truly.)

Anyway – I don’t THINK I’ve posted this one here before…but, just in case, I’ve freshened it up with a 1988 “new wave” playlist chaser. (Except for Que, Sera, Sera – that was on the soundtrack.  Gotta love Sly and the Fam.

Now I’m going to make myself a hot toddy, snuggle up under a blankie and watch “Elf” with Liam.

Aaaaaaaah CHOO!

The following was first posted at Vacuity on November 20, 2008:

—————————————————————————————

According to The Trades article of November 18th, they’ve come out with a Limited Edition Locker Set of DVDs of the 1988 cult-classic movie, Heathers.

Now, granted – I’m a bit older than Heathers Chandler, McNamara and Duke, having graduated High School in 1985. I was an incredibly mature college student when these girls, along with the monacled Veronica (Winona Ryder) Sawyer were so very at ol’ Westerberg High. I never got into Christian Slater, though – ugh, what’s the upchuck factor on HIM?
Now I’ve seen a lot of bullshit… angel dust, switchblades, sexually perverse photography involving tennis rackets… But, I’ve gotta say that this quirky little flick with it’s very, very dark comedy has always tickled me. What’s my damage, you ask? Well, sue me. I like it. It’s got that what-a-cruel-world-let’s-toss-ourselves-in-the-abyss type ambience. And lots of snark. I’m a sucker for snark.

But the BEST part of this new Limited Edition Locker Set is the swag that’s packaged with it! Per The Trades article:
“Coming in a miniaturized tin locker, the DVD’s and Blu-ray are enclosed in a hardcover Westerburg High School Class of 1988 Yearbook that is filled with topical factoids from 1988, as well as realistic yearbook signings with quotes from the film, complete with typical teenage grammatical and spelling errors. Fridge and locker magnets are included as well, with pictures of Winona Ryder and Christian Slater, a “Big Fun” logo, a croquet mallet and various quotes from the film, such as “Color Me Stoked” and “How Very!” Also included is a “Heathers” t-shirt with either “What’s your Damage?”, “Big Fun”, or “Greetings and Salutations” written on the front (this reviewer got “What’s your Damage?”). A lot of thought clearly went into the kitschy memorabilia included with this locker set, which should please collectors.”

Admit it, folks. You want one. You’re going to go straight to Amazon and drop 80 clams on this pronto. And, you have me to thank. I mean, let’s face it…you were nothing before you met me. You were playing Barbies with Betty Finn. You were a Bluebird. You were a Brownie. You were a Girl Scout Cookie.
Now…where is my red hairbow…?
*All passages highlighted in red are quotes from the movie. I chose red because the extreme always seems to make an impression. Or, maybe I’m really Heather Chander.  You decide…ell…that, and I’m really Heather Chandler. Heh.

    Ummm…I used to be IN LOVE with Christian Slater, but I think that was because I was in love with Happy Harry Hard-On from Pump Up the Volume. Did you ever see that?

    He looks so bizzarro now, though.

    What I want to know is: whatever happened to Skeet Ulrich, from Scream? Now HE was hot!

    Heathers was one of my favorite movies way back when. But I don’t think I’ve seen it in fifteen or more years!
