Hey Youuuu Guyyyyyyyys!!
This year marks the 25th anniversary of one of my favorite films of all time, The Goonies. Beginning today, folks in Astoria Oregon (where the film takes place) are kicking off a 4 day extravaganza called "Never Say Die: The Goonies 25th Anniversary Celebration". In addition to screenings of the film, there will be treasure hunts, cast Meet & Greets (with Chunk, Mouth, and one of the evil Fratelli brothers...), a 5K Truffle Shuffle run/walk, bus tours of Goonies locales, performances by Goonies-themed bands like Troy's Bucket, The Whiskey Rebellion (they have a song called The Ballad of Chester Copperpot), and Corey Feldman's group Truth Movement), plus a host of other awesomely geeky events. My sister and her family are on their way up there right now. Damn, I'm jealous.
