So tonight I got to do something I've been waiting for my entire life...see my all-time favorite movie, Flash Gordon
, on the big screen.
The AFI Theater and Cultural Center in Silver Spring, MD was showing the film as part of its annual "Totally Awesome Movies of the 80's" program. And though I did sing along with the opening
, I managed to behave myself through the rest of it. No small feat as Flash Gordon makes me giddy like no other movie has or ever will.
And yes, I did wear that t-shirt to the showing 'cuz, you know, I'm the coolest guy ever. HAIL MING!
