Can you name the artist and song:

Full moon in the city and the night was young
I was hungry for love, I was hungry for fun


Last Song: “Yah Mo B There” by James Ingram & Michael McDonald from the album It’s Your Night (1983)

Great job Karen (@dovey_karen), GoodSport09 (@GoodSport09), and Sarey (@SareyGamp)!!!

That leads to a brighter day
Don’t let your heart grow cold
Just reach out and call his name, his name

[Fievel sees Warren’s true form from behind the mirror]

Fievel Mousekewitz: Warren T.!

Warren T. Rat: [Warren sees Fievel, gasps] You!

Fievel Mousekewitz: You’re not a rat, you’re a cat!

Warren T. Rat: How’d you get in here? Come here, you little…

That leads to a brighter day

**Reminder** “Box Office Jocks” Blog-a-Thon coming up!

Just a reminder that Dubsism and I are hosting a “Box Office Jocks” Blog-a-Thon. Entries will be posted this Super Bowl weekend (February 2 and 3, 2019).

This blog-a-thon is all about movies featuring actors who used to be athletes at the college, Olympic, or professional level, OR movies in which a famous athlete appears. It is NOT about movies which have a sports-related theme. This is about actors who once were jocks, or big-time jocks who make cameos.

Please let me know if you would like to submit a blog article, or podcast for this event.

You can email me at Returnto80s@gmail.com. If you send me something after this weekend, I can add it. So, don’t be shy.

Some possible actors include (but certainly aren’t limited to) John Wayne, Kirk Douglas, Buster Crabbe, Johnny Weissmuller, Esther Williams, Sonja Heine, up through people like Beau Bridges, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, or the recently departed Burt Reynolds. Also, these do not need to be 80s movies.

Here are some places where you can look up other actors/movies if you don’t want to cover any of the actors listed above:

Actors who once were College or Olympic athletes:

Pro athletes who either made cameo appearance or became “straight-up” actors:

So as I said, you can email me at Returnto80s@gmail.com, or you can even comment below.

Quote of the Day: The Beastmaster

Dar: [re: the eagle] I have my eyes…

Quote of the Day: Space Shuttle Challenger

“The crew of the space shuttle Challenger honored us by the manner in which they lived their lives. We will never forget them, nor the last time we saw them, this morning, as they prepared for their journey and waved good-bye and ‘slipped the surly bonds of earth’ to ‘touch the face of God. ” – President Ronald Reagan

The Space Shuttle Disaster occurred on this day, 33 years ago (January 28, 1986)
