  • Funny 80s Movie Quotes
    • "Um, he's sick. My best friend's sister's boyfriend's brother's girlfriend heard from this guy who knows this kid who's going with the girl who saw Ferris pass out at 31 Flavors last night. I guess it's pretty serious." - Ferris Bueller's Day Off "I do have a test today. That wasn't bull. It's on European Socialism. I mean really, I'm not European, I don't plan on being European, so who gives a crap if they're Socialists? They could be Fascist Energists for all I care, it still wouldn't change the fact that I don't own a car. Not that I condone fascism, or any ism for that matter. Isms in my opinion are not good. A person should not believe in an ism, he should believe in himself. I quote John Lennon, 'I don't believe in Beatles, I just believe in me.' Good point there. After all, he was the Walrus. I could be the Walrus- I'd still have to bum rides off people." - Ferris Bueller's Day Off

  • The Greatest Sports Moment of the 80s
    • The Miracle on Ice. 1980. Winter Olympics. U.S.A. vs U.S.S.R.
    Source:http://sports.espn.go.com/espn/page2/story?page=remember80s/partone/090706 http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-srv/sports/longterm/olympics1998/history/memories/80-hock.htm The Miracle on ice is considered by some to be the greatest moment in the history of U.S. sports. It wasn't the final game of Hockey in the Winter Olympics, being held in Lake Placid, NY, but it was the qualifying game. If the U.S. defeated Russia it would go on to compete for the gold. This was a pivotal moment since the U.S. and Russia were currently engaged in the Cold War. With only ten minutes remaining in the last period, captain Mike Eruzione made a 20-foot wrist shot to win the game. The U.S. would go on to defeat Finland in the final game, winning the gold in 1980!

      • Eye Flow - Organize the page so that the reader is directed through it. ex. focal point leads to title which leads into text.

  • 1920's- Ain't We Got Fun 1925 Filim- Gold Rush starring Charlie Chaplin Poem The Good Night and Good Morning of Federico Garcia Lorca   He knew he was asleep and was dreaming           Of a beautiful poem. It seemed to be singing                 Itself in the night, and he woke    In a bed in a room in an old hotel           And lay there, hearing the song go on                 Though he could see the shape    Of his empty shirt on the straight chair           And his empty shoes on the patch of carpet                 Made light, half by the moon    And half by the gray beginning           Of dawn. He could see the silhouette                 Of his own hand against the window shade    Like a flower, open and waiting. He smiled           At the foolishness of loving his own poem                 In his own dream, of accepting praise    From his own shadow. But his mind's eye           Kept seeing that poem and his real ear                 Kept hearing that same song. It came from the street    Under his window, and before he knew why,           He was out of bed and shivering his way                 Into what were some of his clothes    http://www.digitalhistory.uh.edu http://www.poetryfoundation.org/journal/audioitem.html?id=2244 And one of his shoes and stumbling           Into the hall and down the unlighted stairs                 And through the lobby (where the clerk was dreaming Something else), through the stubbornly locked door           And along the sidewalk to the curb where the singer                 Was sweeping trash and leaves along the gutter    With his slow broom, who now stopped, his mouth           Open to gape at an apparition                 Holding a scrap of paper up to his face    And begging him to read aloud. The sweeper whispered           He couldn't read. And Lorca took him                 Into his arms and kissed him and kissed    The morning air, now stirring what was left           Of the leaves overhead, and went limping back                 Through a door that stood wide open    And a grand lobby and up the stairs into bed           To lie there stark awake as sleeplessly                 As a poet who'd been told he was immortal.
