‘The Breakfast Club’ Is Being Re-Released In Theaters To Celebrate The Film’s 30th Anniversary

The Film turns 30 this Sunday

The classic John Hughes film The Breakfast Club will celebrate the 30th anniversary of its release in theaters this Sunday and to celebrate, the movie is being re-released in movie theaters in March. The Breakfast Club was released on February 15, 1985 and to mark the occasion, Universal Pictures is bringing the movie back to theaters complete with an introductory featurette that will look back on the film’s legacy and continuing impact on pop culture. Additionally, a new musical theater production of For The Record: Dear John Hughes has opened here in LA and will open in Chicago that pays homage to the music of John Hughes‘s films — including The Breakfast Club. It’s insane to me to think that the movie is now 30 years old. Wow. More »

One More Disneyland Half

The TV Guide

This September, Disneyland will be hosting the 10th anniversary of the Disneyland Half Marathon shortly after the theme park celebrates its 60th anniversary and yesterday, registration for the Disneyland Half went on sale. Because of all the anniversary fun going on this year, I happily signed up to run my 4th Disneyland Half Marathon in a row … but it will likely be my last. I’m not giving up running half marathon races (yet) but the insane cost of running these races at Disney is starting to get out of hand. Actually, the cost of these races has been out of hand for some time now but for me, I think I’ve reached my limit. I’m very much looking forward to running the Disneyland Half again later this year as I know it will be a very special anniversary run … but the more I think about it, the more I realize it’s probably time to stop spending so much money on running races at Disney.

‘U Can’t Touch This’ By MC Hammer Is 25 Years Old

January 13, 1990
"This is a beat U can't touch"

I know it’s not #ThrowbackThursday yet but I feel it is my duty to inform you that MC Hammer‘s biggest hit, U Can’t Touch This, is 25 years old. The song was released on January 13, 1990 and it immediately became a worldwide smash, catapulting MC Hammer into the stratosphere of fame and fortune. Unfortunately, due to a series of really bad decisions, MC Hammer lost both the fame and the fortune he amassed from his music career that started with the monster success of U Can’t Touch This but the song remains a smash. Click the embed above to watch the 25 year old music video for U Can’t Touch This and let’s celebrate a quarter century of Hammer Pants :)
