Death1 - Coffee

(no subject)

I just re-watched Stand By Me for the first time since I was maybe 13. Back then it was an OK movie. Now it really hit me just how good (and how important) a movie it was. It also hit me that I never experienced friendship even remotely like that or had adventures quite on that scale.
When I was 12 we didn't go exploring far from home, or camp out overnight outside of campsites where there were people to keep an eye on us because of the murderers and child abductors. We didn't go to see dead bodies, after all all we had to do was turn on the TV and we could see as many as we wanted.
It's a bloody good movie. If you haven't seen it for a few years go find a copy.

Also, Wil Wheaton was an adorably cute kid. As was River Phoenix.
