Okay. First, I vaguel remember hearing something about “Umbrella Academy” in passing in a news feed or a newsletter or something. It is a show on Netflix. I think there is magic involved. And evidently, there are the “Greasers” and the “Socs.” Frame of reference–I’m dating myself. I read S.E. Hinton’s book “The Outsiders” my freshman year of high school, not too long after it was released. And yes, my life-long crush on Patrick Swayze came about from his portrayal of Darryl “Darry” Curtis. Anyway, I also enjoyed the movie “Footloose” back in the day and can point to the fact that the movie is based on a real incident that occurred in Elmore City, OK, which is located not too far from my hometown. Which still doesn’t explain things. Where was I? Oh, right! “Umbrella Academy.” Footloose dance-off scene. I must now find and stream this series. Why? Just watch… Have a danciful weekend! Oh, and yes, this is–in a fanicful way–worthy of a Friday the 13th post.

Don’t forget, Silver, that The Outsiders has an Oklahoma connection–it was filmed in Tulsa and the house used in the film is now a museum for the movie.
Indeed it was! I devoured “The Outsiders” when the book was released and the movie was all kinds of awesome. There was a story on local news not long ago where a Tulsa local donated his letterman’s jacket to the museum. One of his brother’s friends was an extra in the movie and wore his jacket. The museum curator was all kinds of thrilled to get it. Fun stuff!
That was fun! Thanks for sharing it. Of course, now that song’s gonna be stuck in my head, but hey, I love me some Kenny Loggins. =o)
You’re welcome for the earworm. It’s one of those peppy songs that should give you energy, right? Almost as good as coffee. 🤣
We watch the Umbrella Academy and really enjoy it.
Good to know!
Oh my god. Such a fantastic show. I just got finished watching Season 3 and am ready to start over again, for the effin fun of it. One of my absolute favorite TV shows ever! 💀
Well, that’s a glowing endorsement! I’ll have to make the time to stream it. Now go have some fun… 😉
