“Oh Pinky, you’re so fine, you’re so fine you blow my mind, Oh Pinky! Oh Pinky!” Pinky just called and is going to bring me some orange juice and egg drop soup… How nice is that. See, I’m sick and when I get sick I get super whiney… So, Pinky, being wined at for an hour volunteered to bring me some OJ, and then I added the soup… Cause really who can get better without soup! More specifically egg drop soup.
Anyway, that is so off topic, but that’s what happens when sneezing overtakes your life. Yes, this happened because of the one two punch of Britney Spears and True Blood… But come on! Who could pass that up! Anyway, the lovely Ms. Pretty In Pinky has sent in another wonderful article about her love of the 80’s classic The Goonies! This time focusing in on Mr. Corey Feldman!
Check out her full recap after the jump!
Hello, my lovelies. Pinky Lovejoy here to continue our discussion about one of the best movies ever made, The Goonies.
About ten years after I met Josh Brolin (otherwise known as the very first “Goonie” I’d met), I found out that Corey Feldman was in a band that was performing near my house. As you may or may not know, Corey played the wise-cracking “Mouth” on the film and I was dying to meet him. Unfortunately, when I arrived at the venue his band was supposed to play at, there were maybe ten people there. After a long wait, we were told the band wouldn’t be playing after all. As luck would have it, when I was walking to my car, I saw Corey walking in the distance. Even though it was dark, it was unmistakably him (I could tell by his swagger), and I called out to him like we were BFFs: “Yo, Corey! What’s up, man?” (no, I don’t know why I decided to talk like that…just go with it). He came right up to me and was like, “Dude, I know. We got screwed!” (apparently he was going along with this way of speaking so it all worked out). We proceeded to chat about his band being screwed over and how they wouldn’t be playing after all. Corey was ridiculously nice and we talked for awhile before getting a picture together. I was super stoked to meet yet another one of my beloved Goonies.
Years later, I came across Corey leaving a movie and, once again, we were able to get a picture together. Just as before, he was super nice, but I did my best not to “Yo, dude” out on him again (because, really, I never talk like that. I’m still not sure what happened there). The exchange was brief, but pleasant. A few months ago I crossed paths with him again and, although his signature literally takes up my entire The Goonies DVD, he was still really cool.
If you still haven’t taken my advice and watched the fantastic film The Goonies, please rectify this immediately. For additional pink fodder, please check out my blog at www.pinkylovejoy.blogspot.com. As always, have a pink day! xoxo
