It is hands down one of my favorite songs, one of my favorite movie scenes, and I literally cannot sit still if Shout comes on and I'm in public. (And if I go to a wedding where they don't play it, I pout). Just wanted to pass on a little bit of a good feeling tonight... ;)
I heard this on the radio yesterday and immediately had to go home and look up the video. I love the B52s...their concert would be too much fun! I wonder what it was like to hear them pre-fame in good ol' Athens, GA back in the late seventies? You know that had to be one crazy, fun dance party.

When Randy Pausch was a kid, he decided he wanted to paint random things
on his bedroom walls. His father, enthused, his mother reluctant to agree, Randy,
his sister and his friend went to town, painting everything from the quadratic
formula to an elevator that went to the "3rd floor" (Randy lived in a one-story
ranch house), to writing "I'm trapped in the attic!" backwards on the ceiling.
Randy's advice to parents out there: "If your kids want to paint their bedrooms,
as a favor to me, let them do it. It'll be OK. Don't worry about resale value on
the house. I don't know how many more times I will get to visit my childhood
home. But it is a gift every time I go there. I still sleep in that bunk bed my
father built, I look at those crazy walls, I think about my parents allowing me
to paint, and I fall asleep feeling lucky and pleased." Randy Pausch, The Last Lecture
Well, I have a similar story, but mine involves going a little crazy with my mother's magazines one summer when I was 12 or 13. That summer I cut out everything that caught my eye and then taped them all to my bedroom walls, creating a wallpaper effect. My mom was always a big supporter of my creativity; she loved the idea and let me go at it. All my friends thought it was cool, (note the "modeling" photo of my friends in front of it below - ha!) and it served as a kind of "wall of inspiration" for me at the time. Anyway, the point is, I couldn't agree with Randy Pausch more. If your kids show an interest or passion about painting the walls, a certain piece of furniture, a car (I knew a girl in high school who painted her clunker!) - let them do it. It's a healthy outlet for their creativity!
Thanks, Mom! hehe :)
Have a good night, loves!
