Stand By Me (1986) –
Like Patrick Beja knocking up my cat & knocking over my trash. At first I would be pissed…but then I would have Beja Kitties to cuddle so it’s all good.

Opener: Oh hi, Normally each week I try to make you think with a humorous anecdote followed by a random thing. Not this week. Instead I am going to depress those of you who saw this movie as a kid with a thought that occurred to me. More time has passed since this movie was released than the time that passed between 1959, the time period which this movie took place, and 1986 when the film was released. Also, Skroat Leech…makes me pass out every time.
Stand by Me (1986)
