Staying Alive

Last Tuesday I was all busy, and tired, and high on weed. I hopped on my skateboard and rolled over to the convenience store to buy eggs, and then over to Queen Video to rent Staying Alive on VHS.

On the way home I very nearly got creamed by a cube van, and I had to pull over for a minute to regain my composure. I was spooked, because if I hadn't swerved at the last minute, my skull would certainly have cracked open on the hood of the truck, or if not there, then on the ensuing collapse onto the hard paved surface of College street.

I quickly realised that it would have been an ironic death. Mostly because the 'rescuers' would have to pry "Staying Alive" out of my cold dead hand; but especially if my skull really did crack open -- and if the eggs didn't crack at all.

I'm glad you "stayed alive". Unfortunately, this "Saturday Night" I will most definitely have a "Fever" while you'll probably be out behaving like an "Urban Cowboy". Still though, with serious illnesses you have to take it "Moment by Moment" or else you risk a "Blow out".

is staying alive really a pro-life film? i haven't seen it since i was a kid. i know its all about busting hot moves both on and off the dance floor, but what was he staying alive for? for love? for fame? for love of the dance and the fame it brought? can 93 minutes of tony manero 'save' a person who's been overdosing on morrissey and malkmus?

Yeah, it must be a pro-life film. I never even thought about it. I just figured they were trying to cash in on the popularity of that song. I wonder if co-auteurs Sly and Frank Stallone were trying to further some political agenda through the magic of cinema and dance and shit music?
