Class of ’84 Blogathon

MPW-26170Where’s my piece for This Distracted Globe’s Class 0f ’84 Blogathon you ask? I TOTALLY am still working on it but like, my computer did a complete bogus spaz out. I am such a dweeb. But like, the way cool kids that got theirs in on time and schedule are AWESOME! But can you believe that Wes Craven’s classic A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET came out in that Orwellian Fear Year? I still remember seeing it opening week with Eric as there was only one other person in the theater sitting far behind us – and yes, he was wearing a hat just like Freddy Krueger.
