Saturday's Favorite Movie Moment - Almost Famous



I Remember when the car radio was the main source of communication, entertainment, and comfort between friends in the 1970s. Everyone piled in their cars and sang along to whatever song was playing on the radio every week-end. It was so much fun, plus those times created memories we will always remember...

For a long time I thought it was just my gang who sang to the car radio, until the broadcast of the situation comedy That Seventies Show and of course, this movie. Which by the way, is a great film, one you should rent if you haven't already. It's based on the life of a Rolling Stone writer's first band interview when he was only fifteen years old. But, I'm not going to tell you anything else, because it will give too much away! Have a great week-end!

I'm glad you enjoyed it. It's a movie moment from the film "Almost Famous" which depicts a Rolling Stone magazine writer's first writing assignment with a famous band when he was only 15 years old. It's a really good movie, and true. I love this scene because it reminds me of the days when singing to the car radio was a main source of entertainment. Before the invention of video games and vhs movies. Plus, it was a nice way to comfort a friend. I'm glad you liked it~

I was a child of the 80's and we sang to the radio in the car as well. Sometimes we were just parked while others it was while we were moving down the road. With the air guitars and what not I am sure we looked very interesting to the other cars around us.
Thank you for reminding me of a great memory of my high school days.

Cheerfulday, Yes, memories are the best~ Thanks for the comment and have a great day! :))

Ann-

I've been meaning to say this for a while. I love this feature and your taste in film is VERY close to mine. It is eerie!

Great job!

Ann said...

Misty, Thank you so much for checking on me, I've just been behind in free lance work so I haven't been online for long periods at a time, and haven't had a chance to post. Then today, my computer froze while updating and I couldn't even post Tuesday's Question. Thanks again for checking on me. I'm working on Tuesday's or rather Wednesday's Question as we speak, so you should see a post tomorrow, (fingers crossed) I hope so anyway. :))

You're a pal.

Ann said...

Misty, I noticed I wrote thanks for checking on me twice. Sorry. I hate how you can't edit comments, because if you delete them others wonder what kind of mistake you made, and if you leave them, they wonder if you knew any better. So I decided to write another comment saying I'm sorry- that way others will just think I'm a little neurotic. LOL

Ann said...

Bud, Thank you! I'm glad you like this feature. It sounds as if you have great taste in films. I suspect you appreciate movies that have well written screenplays. Just a guess~ :))


Thanks for watching, and the comment~

Motherhood- Courage


Motherhood is an art impossible to explain, one which requires a vast sea of love, devotion, compassion, and understanding, unmatched by any affection we will ever know again.- Ann Clemmons

Words-

Words are the core of our souls, without written, vocal or lyrical expression we lose sight of one another or worse, ourselves. Words bring forth the essence of the human spirit; so express yourself without abandon.

Written Phrase

Why is it that those we should know or believe turn out to be the ones we least understand? I suppose the world is an illusion until we find our way home.-Ann Clemmons

Favorite Phrase

I remember I used to half believe and wholly play with fairies when I was a child. What heaven can be more real than to retain the spirit-world of childhood, tempered and balanced by knowledge and common-sense...

The Storyteller, by Dawn Drover

Alone in her world
of make believe
weaving her stories
of magic and light

She brings joy
to the eyes
of innocent minds
less jaded and free

For only they know
what's in her heart
holding the secrets
she guards so well

Life's hidden mysteries
belong to those
whose wisdom and truth
shine on in imagination

Favorite quotes-

In my younger and more vulnerable years my father gave me some advice that I’ve been turning over in my mind ever since.
