The other one in Weird Science

The other one in Weird Science What was it like to be a 15-year-old boy kissing 30-year-old Kelly LeBrock? Wyatt (Ilan Mitchell-Smith) tells all about his childhood acting days. He did not turn to a life of drugs, but to a life of academia. Is it "healthy and important for us to see that the guy who played Wyatt is a real person"? I'm not sure about that, but it was an interesting interview, and, of course, a great movie.

Weird Science was OK, but me and my little stoner cohorts considered his character in The Wild Life to be the epitome of badass cool. I used to wear the same camos and comb my hair the same way back around 1986 or so.

And for you Van Halen fans.... Eddie was responsible for the soundtrack (at least part of it) in The Wild Life. In fact, you can here licks and riffs during the movie that turned out to be full-length songs on the 5150 album (the first album with Sammy Hagar).

Yes... I did say album.

Uh oh, I feel a Ilan Mitchell-Smith movie night coming on. Here's the original interview the woman did for the Austin Chronicle.

maybe he can start up a weblog and then readers will inexplicably flock to him in droves.

And to bring it all full circle, here's the author of the article blogging about writing the article (second and third entries from the top): Sarah Hepola's Blog. Sarah rocks, and drove flocking would be explicable.

For archival purposes, note the permalink for her related blog entry. Taken together with the Morning News piece and the Austin Chronicle, it's mighty entertaining reading. Thanks, strangeleftydoublethink.

i've always felt this strange connection/opposition between weird science and real genius. like there're two camps and you either belong to one or the other.
