Happy New Year! We spent most of the night listening to our college-age neighbors test fire a jet engine (that's my guess, no way anything that ear-splitting loud is music).
Well after the ball dropped, I watched some of the Planet of the Apes marathon on TV. Roomie gave me the 40th Anniversary Blu-ray disc set for Christmas.
I remember watching these movies back in the 70's with my parents. It's not what I would think they would have liked but I remember how much we liked the movies when they first aired on TV.
The scene that I remember most was in the second movie, Escape from the Planet of the Apes, where Zera gets shot in the back and her newborn baby is shot half a dozen times.
One detail I missed when I was a kid was that Roddy McDowell was playing different roles. Back then, I just thought that was one long-lived chimpanzee.
That's also where I thought of myself more of an orangutan, and gods how I hated the damned gorillas in my junior high school.
Yeah, we orangutans were picked on a lot by those gorillas, even though we did most of their homework, and let them cheat off our test papers.
