“I Know What You Did Last Summer”

Do you? Do you, really? What are you, some kind of stalker? Last summer was awesome. I went overseas, ate some good, cheap food. Did you follow me all the way there too?

I know, this post is two weeks too late! I’ve had a pretty stressful halloween week that I forgot to post this. ‘I Know What You Did Last Summer’ was released in 1997, staring Jennifer Love Hewitt, Ryan Phillipe, Sarah Michelle Gellar, and Freddie Prince Jr.

PLOT:

Four smokin’ hot teenagers [best cast ever] are driving towards the beach at night to celebrate their high school graduation. They accidentally hit a man and they believe he is dead. They freak out and decide to throw him down a lake instead of calling the cops or ambulance. However, when the ‘dead man’ was in the water, he latches out and becomes alive! Instead of saving him, they drown him even more so that he is dead.

*I much prefer Ryan Phillippe over Freddie Prince Jr., but Ryan acts like an ass hole in the movie.

After a year has passed, the gang receive a letter that says ‘I Know What You Did Last Summer’ and they go on a hunt to find out who wrote the note. All they know is it’s some person hiding under a fisherman’s hat, and using his fisherman hook to kill everyone.

The first time I watched this (2005) I laughed throughout the whole move. They call this a scary movie? The Ring, now that’s some scary shit. Anyway, I recently watched it again and I don’t know why, I actually got scared. I guess the second time I knew that it wasn’t scary, so I watched it in a relaxed manner. I put myself in their shoes and being chased after a stranger (happens a lot in my dream) is scary as hell. This isn’t a ghost that will just give you a scare, but a person that can cause you tremendous amount of pain.

What I wanted to blog about was the trend it caused at school. Everyone kept saying ‘I know what you did last summer’. I knew it was a movie, but I hadn’t seen it at the time so I just thought “okay”. Four years after the movie was released, I gained an enemy in high school because she believed I turned her friends against her (she actually did that herself but whatever). She wanted to get back at me so she left me an anonymous note that said “I know what you did last summer”.

I knew who it was from and I just thought, “oh god, this is so lame. Are you serious?” It’s like us still quoting from Austin Powers. I was sooo scared. This will only work if I actually did something horrible last summer. Come on now.

I’m sure you all have your “I know what you did last summer” stories of your own.

THE King of Pop

I never thought I would be writing about Michael Jackson on this blog, but I have to. Shame on me for not thinking of it before. Michael Jackson came into the spotlight at a very young age. He was a child star without a childhood. He joined his brothers band at age six!

His second solo album Thriller turned out to be the best selling album of all time! He revolutionized pop music like no other. Of course, you already know this don’t you?

I am a 90s child and Michael Jackson was probably the first ever celebrity music artist I knew about. He was my definition of a superstar. Everybody knew who he was. He definitely appealed to me for his dance moves and for his eccentric looks. It was not until I reached my teen years that I started to love his songs.

In 1991 he released Dangerous with ‘Black or White’, ‘Remember the Time’, and ‘Heal the World’  as the released singles. In 1995 he released a double disc album HIStory: Past, Present and Future Book 1 with ‘Scream’ beings its first single. It is known to be the highest selling multiple disc album of all time.

Not only was he a fantastic music artist, he was also a very giving and caring man. In 1992 he founded the ‘Healing the World Foundation’. All profits from his Dangerous World Tour went to the charity.

Michael Jackson was not a 90s man nor was he a 60s man. He entertained the world for over four decades. He was there for it all. That’s why he is THE King of Pop. Legend.

There is no other.

He will never be forgotten. Thank you for your music, Michael Jackson.
