"Why Don't You Get A Job Spicoli?" 

Fast Times At Ridgemont High Review by ~vanessa r. aquino 09/24/09

"Fast Times At Ridgemont High" was ahead of its time back in 1982.  This film is very adult themed when it was released.  Teenage life encompasses everything.  It touches all sides of issues that teenagers face from peer pressure, sex, freedom, exploring feelings for a guy or girl, growing up and responsibilities. 

I was not aware the director of this film was a woman, Amy Heckerling!
As I reviewed the film for the second time, I am amazed of her accomplishments in this film, it being her first feature film.
It's worth watching again and again.

Quarantine Times: Third Weekend

Quarantine Times: Third Weekend These past three weeks I've been diggin' into my movin' groovin' music vault (aka cd's, cassette tapes and do have 1 8-track, LOL). In my late teens and twenties, I listened to lots of different music (I'm blessed that I was open to ALL music as it made me appreciate different genres). Since places, I love to go to such as libraries, events, and museums are closed and my friends quarantining I am finding myself playing music. Like I'm going back to my music. Back then, I used to listen to a cd or cassette tape from beginning to end and got to know the album real good. Here's one that I would play to death. #MikiHoward "Ain't Nobody Like You" is my favorite of all. I hope you enjoy it and dance to it. It's a piece of feel-good music. I will continue to share music with you all. Feel free to share your music favorites with me. :) It will keep us going. ~vanessa ross
