Celebrate "Dazed Day" May 28th!!!

Tomorrow, May 28th, marks the 35 year anniversary of the day in which the movie "Dazed and Confused" takes place. Now for those of you who have never seen this movie, I'll bless you with a short synopsis: It is a coming of age story that revolves around a few separate groups of friends (ranging from incoming high school freshman to super senior), whose lives on this one night (the last day of school in '76) become intertwined throughout a series of hazing events, pot smoking, deep discussion and partying.

There is no need to further summarize the plot, themes, etc. because chances are if you're a fan of this blog, this is one of you're favorite movies as well. Last night, while indulging in some adult beverages on my friends porch, the topic of this movie came up in conversation when it was noted that this Saturday was "Dazed Day". This movie brings up great memories for me. It just has this unmistakably likability to it, and there are moments in it that everyone can relate to. There was a time in my life where I fell asleep to this movie on-and-off for months on end and I can pretty much quote it verbatim.

So to everyone out there that is still young enough to drink in the woods and not get mocked by police officers, I encourage you to take advantage of your youth and celebrate "Dazed Day". Grab a couple of sixers, shoot some pool, rock bell bottom jeans, paddle a freshman, talk about the design of the dollar bill, rock out to "Free Ride", slow dance to "Love Hurts", throw a kegger up at the moon tower, make out with an older chick, stay out past curfew and when it's all said and done, drive to a Ticketmaster outlet and pick up some Aerosmith tickets.
