    Wow. I actually remember when The Wherehouse first opened in Westchester, they had these little circle dot stickers whose colors denoted the price of the video rental. It was a weird system; it was like, the best or newest movies cost the most and the worst ones were totally bargain-priced. I always wondered where they drew the line.

    lol. MASK with Rocky Dennis. Not to poke fun at him, but one time in high school we had a substitute teacher who passed out a blank sheet of paper and told us all to write our names for attendance. One by one, all the class clowns started writing goofy names that made us all cover our mouths to keep from busting up. Ronald Reagan. Jack Meoff. Bruce Lee. Finally it came to my turn. I’d just seen Mask, so I wrote Rocky Dennis. I just waited and watched to see who would recognize it as it went around the class. Finally one of my friends saw it and he laughed so hard he turned beet-red and had tears in his eyes. Good times.
