  1. Some of this I really got; some I was totally confused about or knew nothing about. I am the same age as you, I believe. Thriller was already huge by the time I heard it. I was a late bloomer, or living in a bubble, apparently.

    I like your Karate Kid fear, because it makes me feel more normal. The movie that scared me the most as a youngin’ was Foul Play, with Chevy Chase and Goldie Hawn. There was an Albino in that movie that gave me nightmares for months. It’s nice to know I am not the only one who gets scared by non-traditional “scary things”.

  2. LOL, tmr. Yeah, I get scared at non-traditional things. And traditional things — ha. Foul Play… now I don’t know what that one is. I don’t think I’ve seen it. I lived in a small town, had no cable. I think I was in a bubble somewhat. But not in a bad way.
