Corey Haim, Corey Feldman and Heather Graham starred in the 1988 classic movie “License to Drive.” Billy Ocean anchored the soundtrack.

Corey Haim passed away on March 10, 2010 – my 35th birthday. He was 38. Feldman just released a pay-per-view exposé of Hollywood pedophiles within the last few weeks. There’s a bunch of drama going on with it though now. Corey Haim’s mom and sister are apparently not happy about the documentary. Feldman exposed Charlie Sheen as the pedo who raped Haim. But that was apparently already known and/or not altogether true. Judge for yourself. Great song and great movie regardless. Both the Corey’s are #GenX icons. read more

My good friend Shannon loved the song “Son Of A Preacher Man” by Dusty Springfield.

I told her that I’m the son of a preacher woman (Church of God in Christ, or “COGIC”), which apparently is/was pretty rare in genuine Christian institutions – female pastors. Shannon got a chuckle out of that fact since we smoked weed and drank together all the time in the early 2000s.

Generation X kids know how it is – many of us were forced to go to church every Sunday. Some of us also had to go to church on Wednesdays and even Sunday School before church. Church was so normal that there was even the sitcom “Amen” that ran from 1986 to 1991. read more
