No way! Am I first to comment? Get in!
I've just bought CassaStorm, can't wait to get reading it.

The Happy Whisk said...

I want my two dollars. I remember that and still say it today.

Brave New World is my favorite book, and you highlighted some of my favorite bloggers. This Challenge is getting better with each letter.

Laura Clipson said...

I love Brandon and Bryan at A Beer for the Shower, they always make me laugh.

Elephant's Child said...

Brave New World was brilliant.
Love that you are focusing on bloggers as well as books, music and movies.
Some bloggers too deserve to become classics.

Annalisa Crawford said...

I had to read Brave New World at school. I don't remember much - although I do remember having to write 3 or 4 different essays on it - so I think I'll have to revisit it.

lifepostbrainhemorrhage said...

Hey Ninja! Wow...Better Off Dead, completely forgot about that one. Love, love, love me some Boston. :)

I have heard so many great things about the Beer for a Shower blog, I have to check them out. Have to! Looks like Brave New World will be going on my TBR.

See ya later! Hugs. Eva

Rhonda Albom said...

Your list seems more like me, than you. :) I love the movies and the music. I have to check out the bloggers.

nashvillecats2 said...

Love your choice of "B" books and music., hope you're keeping well under the strain.

Yvonne.

Li said...

Would Barbarella qualify as a cult classic?
Sadly, I have not read Brave New World - and I guess I really should. Maybe at the beach this summer!

Matthew MacNish said...

I'm a huge Aldous Huxley fan. Brave New World is great, but I also really enjoyed The Doors of Perception.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Heather, you're first! And thanks.

Ivy, so do we!

Robyn, thanks, I'm trying.

Elephant, I always feature blogger buddies because friends are the most important.

Eva, those guys are hilarious. Go enjoy!

Rhonda, great minds...

kaykuala said...

Brave New World had a profound effect on me years back. Great B collections Alex!

Hank

Sandra Almazan said...

Thanks for mentioning my Thunderclap, Alex!

I read Brave New World when I was a teenager. I still remember the bit where they indoctrinate the Betas, which is very appropriate for today.

Bish Denham said...

Brave New World was mandatory reading for me in high school. It lead to me reading many of Huxley's other books.

Haven't seen either of those movies, but now I guess I just might have to!

Carolyn Brown said...

Just sent the tweet!

Good choices for letter "B"

Cathy Kennedy said...

I like Kurt Russell. He's a great actor. Big Trouble in Little China is a fun, fun movie! I liked it more than I first thought I would. Boston's More Than a Feeling is one of my favorite tunes! I definitely will check out today's featured bloggers, so thanks for the heads up. Have a blast with the A2Z challenge!

Hilary Melton-Butcher said...

Hi Alex - I don't know any of the movies ... or the music - but that's me! I must get across to the featured bloggers - though am doing my listings ...

Brave New World I must read at some stage .. cheers Hilary

Melanie Schulz said...

Brave New World is one of my all time favorite books--truly frightening in a quiet, unsettling way.

Jennifer Hawes said...

Back to the Future, of course. I loved the book Brave New World. Thanks for bringing us amazing blog posts!

Mason Canyon said...

I have to say Big Trouble in Little China is a favorite of mine. It's just funny. I'm enjoying meeting new bloggers. And who doesn't love Boston.

Cathrina Constantine said...

I love Kurt Russell and I liked Big Trouble in Little China. And who didn't love Journey!!!

Leovi - La Fotografía Efectista Abstracta said...

Brave New World - Aldous Huxley was by a book that marked my youth. also brings back wonderful memories Boston with "More Than A Feeling"!

Ava Quinn said...

I love Better Off Dead. I can probably quote that entire movie.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Lisa, I think it would.

Sandra, you're welcome! Hope you hit your target.

Thanks, Carolyn!

Cathy, if it's on, I'll end up watching the whole film, and I've already seen it dozens of times.

Mason, exactly! I certainly don't know how anyone could dislike Boston, that's for sure.

Ava, so can I!

Karen Walker said...

I'm not sure I'd know how to define "cult" classic, but it's fun reading your choices. At least I've heard of the group Boston.

Stephanie Faris said...

Yay! Hi, Beth. *waves*

My husband LOVES Better Off Dead. I don't remember being that impressed by it when I was a kid. It's one of those movies people talk about constantly and I always say, "Really?" I just thought it was something we rented one weekend because we were bored and that was that!

Jo said...

Yup I read Brave New World. Excellent book but what a horrid place to live.

I love Bryan and Brandon. Always enjoy their snarky comments and their rather weird pictures. They cook too.

T. Powell Coltrin said...

I loved Big Trouble in Little China. Sometimes I wonder about my choice of movies. :)

Need to read Brave New World.

Jeremy Hawkins said...

Grand Post... Big Trouble in Little China, one of my favorites. Better Off Dead another great one, it's funny both soundtracks are hard to come by.

Pat Hatt said...

The beer guys sure aren't for the easily offended lol best way to be.

Two great flicks indeed, watched both a few times

Madeline Mora-Summonte said...

I had that Boston album as a cassette, and I still have it as a CD.

And I now have More Than a Feeling playing in my head....

Elise Fallson said...

Big Trouble in Little China! Hahah that was a funny one, but feels like eons ago.... And you know what? I don't think I've ever seen Better Off Dead...need to get on that....

Chrys Fey said...

When I read Brave New World as a kid for school, I got nightmares. lol I sure wouldn't want to live in a world like Aldous described.

Yay! I'm so happy to see Beth listed under the bloggers category. :)

L.G. Keltner said...

I'm a fan of both movies, but I have especially fond childhood memories of eating popcorn and watching Big Trouble in Little China with my dad.

S. L. Hennessy said...

Brave New World is possibly (it's hard to be definitive here) my favorite sci fi book of all time. Possibly. Regardless, it's phenomenal. Great choices today!

cleemckenzie said...

Huxley was one of my all time favorite sci-fi writers. Loved Brave New World.

Huntress said...

Congrats! Tweeted

Christine Rains said...

Big Trouble in Little China. Wow. It's been years since I've seen that one. It use to be on my top rewatch list!

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Stephanie, you have to go back and watch it again!

Jo, I didn't know that.

Jeremy, and Carpenter always made great soundtracks for his films.

Madeline, that's a good thing though.

Elise, watch it!

Christine, I could rewatch it anytime.

Shell Flower said...

Better off Dead is one of my favorite movies and Brave new world is a cool book, too. I like how you are including bloggers again this year. Always so supportive!

mail4rosey said...

I liked that Boston album then, and I like it now. :)

Megan Morgan said...

Boston! Now there's a throwback! I know what I'm going to be listening to this afternoon...

Al Penwasser said...

Ahhhhhhhhhh........More Than a Feeling. The soundtrack to my post Navy boot camp life. Memories.

A Beer For The Shower said...

Blast from the past. I love Better Off Dead. Especially the drag racing Asians with the PA system and the cheesy announcer voice. Good times.

And thank you, kind sir! Not just for the shout out but for the kind words. *wipes away tear* "Brimming with snark" may be the nicest compliment we've ever been paid.

Natasha Duncan-Drake said...

I love John Cusack - he seems to pick great films. My fav is Grosse Pointe Blank. Big Trouble in Little China is so funny - I really must get it on DVD one day - I nearly always watch it when it pops up on TV.

Andrew Leon said...

Better Off Dead might actually be the movie I saw more than any other when I was in high school.

Arlee Bird said...

I don't remember Better Off Dead but as I recall I did like Big Trouble...--hadn't seen it in years.

Read Brave New World in high school and that was a bit eye-opening for me in the 1960's.

What else can one say about the great Boston album that others haven't already said. A classic!

Robin said...

Better Off Dead is one of my favorite 80s movies. We watched it on repeat in college. Just love it.

Brave New World... read it in high school, but really should read it again.

Love B&B, but am unfamiliar with your other B bloggers.

Oh, and Boston... it's more than a feeling.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Shell, thanks. I'll always include other bloggers.

Al, wow.

Brandon and Bryan, you're welcome and knew you would like that.

Natasha, Grosse Pointe Blank is a funny film.

And now everyone will have More Than a Feeling in their heads all day long...

Michael Di Gesu said...

Hey, Alex,

Sorry about missing IWSG yesterday when I posted, BUT I DID fix it so a bit late but done.... Only a day late ...

I like your theme.... such fun... I remember BETTER OFF DEAD.... and BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA...

Just a few more days for DRAGON.. You must be really excited!!!!!

Julie Flanders said...

I've had a crush on John Cusack since the 80s and Better off Dead is one of his funniest. I hadn't thought of Boston in a long time but you're right, they really had some great songs.

Susan Gourley/Kelley said...

I love Big Trouble in Little China. I think it made me a Kurt Russell fan. And who doesn't love Boston? Those guys at A Beer for the Shower are funny.

Stephen Tremp said...

Loved Better Off Dead.

Monique Junot: I thought if Casanova and I in there had nothing to say to each other, he'd get bored -- go away. Instead he uses it as a chance to put his testicles all over me!

Lane Myer: Sorry, what?

Monique Junot: Uh, how you say... octopus... testicles.

Lane Myer: No, tentacles. N-T. There's a big difference.

And I just Tweeted. Will do more.

ilima said...

"I want my two dollars," is probably the most quoted line in our house. ;) And Big Trouble is a total Ilima childhood classic. Fun to reminisce.

Mina Burrows said...

Better off Dead! There is no substitute! Great choice!

Patricia Stoltey said...

Brave New World is one of my favorite books, and I do love some of the music from Boston. I'm enjoying these reminders on your A to Z posts, Alex. I have a copy of Brave New World in my bookcase. It might be time to read it again.

Charles Gramlich said...

I sure remember that Boston album. So huge!

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Michael, that's cool. And I am excited!

Susan, I first remember him in The Computer Wore Tennis Shoes.

Stephen, thanks, and awesome exchange!

Ilima, we say that all the time as well.

Carrie-Anne said...

BNW is one of my all-time favoritest books. I've read it thrice, the first two times for class and the most recent time for pleasure. I never understood why some of the people in the two classes I had to read it for whined about it and didn't like it. Perhaps I just like it so much because I already love reading, and was used to older, more literary books.

Cherie Reich said...

I still need to read Brave New World.

Fundy Blue said...

I have got to read "Brave New World!" I can't believe I haven't! " CassaStorm" was my favorite of your books so far. I'm looking forward to "Dragon of the Stars!"

Big Trouble in Little China is a classic! :)

Dixie@dcrelief said...

Big Trouble in Little China - one of my favorites!!! Boston – Boston - love that album. Brave New World – by Aldous Huxley - I've read the book and have seen two different movie versions. Bryan and Brandon at A Beer for the Shower - major love for these two! Your Thunderclap campaign - I have side margin boxes on two blogs - Go ALEX!!!

Tyrean Martinson said...

I'm a fan of both those movies! I really need to read Brave New World. And I'm definitely checking out a few bloggers that are new to me. Thanks for all the info, Alex! And, I tweeted . . .

Roland D. Yeomans said...

I loved BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA. It needed a sequel. :-) I enjoy visiting Helena's blog too

Helena said...

Thank you SO MUCH for mention my blog, Alex! You really are a darling.

I read Brave New World as a teenager and it depressed the heck out of me. What's scary is that Huxley was pretty prophetic about a few things that would come to pass.

DiscConnected said...

"TWO DOLLARS!"

Now that's a cult classic!

Larry

Liesel K. Hill said...

Don't think I've seen any of those B movies, at least not in their entirety. (Snippets of Better Off Dead). I love the guys over at Beer for a Shower. Haven't visited them in a while, but they make me laugh. Guess I need to hop over and see them. Great post!

Sunday Visitor said...

Brave New World is on my reading list :)

Debra McKellan said...

I hit the Robot. :P

Speaking of, I hope the Kargrandes is mentioned in K, because I'm dying to know what they are. lol

Mason T. Matchak said...

This seems like a really cool way to do the A to Z thing - a lot of why I haven't done it is because I have no idea what I'd talk about every day, but it looks like your format means you won't have to worry about that. ^_^

And I've never seen "Big Trouble in Little China", but I do remember watching "Better off Dead" in college and feeling sorry for all the people involved, instead of finding it funny. *shrug*

Patsy said...

Brilliant blog!

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Carrie-Anne, it's one of those love it or hate it books I guess.

Fundy, thanks!

Dixie, thank you!!!

Tyrean, appreciate it.

Roland, Carpenter set it up for one but it never happened.

Helena, you are welcome.

Liesel, go enjoy a laugh.

Debra, they are!

Mason, I had no trouble finding topics for my theme.

Cathrina Constantine said...

Hours later, I just realized I said in my previous comment who didn't love Journey...hahhaaaa... I meant who doesn't love Boston!!! Weird how the brain works...

Timothy Brannan said...

Better off Dead and Big Trouble in Little China! I LOVE those movies. Seen them dozens of times each.

That Boston album is a classic.

Ahhh, Big Trouble in Little China...such memories. Read Brave New World, and watching to see what happens next in our wrecked world.

Hart Johnson said...

I really like this format of favorites you've got going here. Easy breezy. And including a book detail--nice.

Did you see that they just did a 30th anniversary table read of the script of Better off Dead with the full cast (although I didn't see John Cusack)? I'll find the link if you're interested.

Brave New World was one I loved. Was assigned to read it in 12th grade. Was probably the only one in class who liked it.

Beverly Stowe McClure said...

I feel like I've been lost in space because I haven't seen any of the movies or read the books.

RaShelle Workman said...

Alex, I can't believe I'm such a flake. Congrats on your new book!!! Whoot!!! Can't wait to read it. =D

Empty Nest Insider said...

Bryan and Brandon are the best, and their comments are almost as entertaining as their blog posts! I'll have to see Better Off Dead. Sounds like a fun movie.

Julie

Beverly Fox said...

I'm a huge fan of BOTH of those movies, but ashamed to admit that I've never read Brave New World (which seems very wrong to me). All the bloggers introduced today are new to me- I will check them out now!

Birgit said...

I have not seen the first movie but I enjoyed the 2nd and it is now a cult classic. Love Boston! I have read Brave New World and it is a disturbing but excellent book. My B movie would be the original "Invaders from Mars". No one believes the kid but he is telling the truth and it is scary

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Cathrina, I did wonder about that...

Susan, it will only get worse before it gets better.

Thanks, Hart!

That would be awesome, Liz! I missed that.

Thanks, RaShelle! No worries - still five more days until its release.

Birgit, the original is far better than the remake they did back in the 80's.

D.G. Hudson said...

I learn a lot at ABFTS about beer, how to live with your neighbors. . .and a lot of subjects I never even considered before. As for Brave New World, banning a book always makes it more desirable to the masses. . .

LYA said...

Nice list! Definitely checking out A Beer for the Shower!

Sherry Ellis said...

I've always liked Boston. My dad has that album.

Sherry Ellis said...

L.G. Smith said...

Um, I've still never read Brave New World. I should probably do something about that one of these days...

Sandra Cox said...

Nice mention of the B bloggers:)

Spacerguy said...

I've tweeted. Oooh, you've got me intrigued about Brave New World, I haven't read that one. Yes I'm following, I'm following brave new blog buddies across the blogiverse.

David P. King said...

Did you know Better Off Dead is scarily similar to my teenage life? It's trippy, and yet I love that movie so hard. :)

Haneen I. Adam said...

Good list :D

Maurice Mitchell said...

Better off dead is one of my favorite movies and I always wanted to send away for the space shuttle.

M Pax said...

I read a Brave New World in high school. I didn't like it. It sticks in my head, though. Untethered Realms

Mark Koopmans said...

That's awesome news about Write Club:)

Have Tweeted and must never buy that album by Boston (it's more than a feeling, trust me :)

Liz A. said...

http://www.ew.com/gallery/better-dead-exclusive-photos

I don't know if there's video someplace. There must be!

Susan Oloier said...

I think my brother and I watched Better Off Dead close to 100 times.

J E Oneil said...

I've heard of everything except Better Off Dead.

Balkan whip snake, huh? Cool name for a ship class.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Sherry, that makes me feel old...

Spacerguy, that made me smile.

David, that is scary.

Mark - funny!

Thanks, Liz!!

Kathe W. said...

Loved Brave New World!

Nick Wilford said...

I have to read A Brave New World! The daddy of dystopian.

Jemi Fraser said...

Love Boston & Brave New World - great choices :)

mshatch said...

Big Trouble in Little China totally cracks me up every time I watch it. And yup, I own it. Had to.

Beth Ellyn Summer said...

Aaaww you don't know how this cheered me up!!! Been super sick (ER sick!) so this made my week! Thank you alex!! :)

Beth Ellyn Summer said...

Hehe!

Mary Montague Sikes said...

So much research! How do you keep up?

Melissa Sugar said...

I want my two dollars. Sometimes , even now , that line gets stuck in my head. I remember it well. I'm also a huge Boston fan. We must have grown up in the same era.

Lisa said...

great and comprehensive way to blog Alex, dedicated and professional yet warm and personal, pillar blog. I am heading to Beth Ellyn Summer, thank you Alex

Melissa Sugar said...

Alex, when I clicked on the link to check out Becoming Layla's blog, I was directed to a scary warning that told me I was forbidden and my attempt to access had been recorded . Hope I am not hacking into NSA OR CIA database . I tried twice and got the same warning . Do you know what's up? Just thought I would let you know . Loved Beer in the Shower, BTW. Thanks for sending me that way.

Stephen Hayes said...

I've read "Brave New World." It was a long time ago but I think much of it was accurate.

T. D. Harvey said...

I LOVED Better Off Dead! I don't even remember the plot now, but I do remember watching it over and over with my best friend, Kelly. Big Trouble was a fun movie at the time, but I can't watch it now.

farawayeyes said...

Love both movies and the beer boys!

Michael D'Agostino said...

I'm surprised to hear that description of Bryan and Brandon because I've always thought they were the nicest boys in the world. But you're right, they are awfully snarky :P

Holy Ghost Writer said...

Better off Dead was a great movie. A beer for a shower is a great blog

Ella said...

Wow, I am in a trance dance, thinking about that Boston album of long ago~
Time has flown!

Your book snippets are amazing~

I need to check out Better off Dead~

Thanks, Captain

Donna McDine said...

Gotta love Kurt Russell in anything. How about Overboard. OMG! Boston, my husband starting dating over the album. Love it. What fond memories!

Donna K. Weaver said...

Big Trouble in Little China! We loved that totally nonsense movie.

Mary Aalgaard said...

I haven't watched either of those movies. I love that Boston album. I read Brave New World when I was in High School for banned book month. It's a sad story.
Play off the Page

T.F. Walsh said...

Ahhh Big Trouble in Little China is a great classic. Like your theme for the challenge:)

Gregg Metcalf said...

I have never seen any of those movies. Interesting!

Angela Brown said...

I loved/still love Big Troube in Little China. Yeah, it had it's moments but it's otherwise an enjoyable classic.

Tammy Theriault said...

Big trouble. Oh man oh man.... I always though his pants were too tight haha

Elizabeth Seckman said...

Beer guys rock!

Boston is also awesome. You have good taste in music :)

I loooove that song by Boston - great band.

And Big Trouble in Little China totally takes me back to childhood!

randi lee said...

I want my two dollars!!!! Better Off Dead is one of my all-time favorite movies. Why, I think I might just pull it off of that dusty ole DVD shelf and watch it later :D

Medeia Sharif said...

I haven't seen some of these '80s movies. I have quite a few I need to catch up on. Great spotlight on some bloggers.

Truedessa said...

Boston is played on many classic rock stations in the area. They have timeless music. I am enjoying the new words from your book. Can a ninja be trusted? They have special powers you know.

lorilmaclaughlin.com said...

I love Boston's music, I've read Brave New World, and Better Off Dead is on my to-be-watched list. I've met Beth Ellyn, but not the other two. I'll check them out.

Michelle Wallace said...

Beth Ellyn is a sweetie-pie!

Write Club has really grown...
I have no idea what The Kargrandes is... maybe a sci-fi version of The Kardashians?

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Hey guys! Sorry, just catching up with B comments.

Beth, I'm glad it did and sorry you were in the ER.

Mary, lots of planning.

Melissa, do you use McAfee? They are on a vengeance right now.

Michael, they appreciated the snark label.

Donna, wow!

Elizabeth, thanks.

Randi lee, you should!

Truedessa, you can trust this Ninja.

Michelle, never!

Kathryn McKendry said...

I haven't seen those movies and I've been wanting to read Brave New World.

Can't wait for Write Club!

Dean K Miller said...

Hey Alex! I think I know one of those bloggers. Thanks for the shout out today. Looking forward to the new X-files episodes. I'll play coy and say I know what the Kargrandes are but won't tell anyone until after I get my dragon ride!

That is amazing news from DL!

Toinette Thomas said...

Thoroughly enjoy both these movies and the album. I had an appreciation for Brave New World, but didn't like it as much as I thought I would.
