Thinking Chaos, Thinking Fences

This is for those who descend into the code
and make their room a fridge for Superman

I just read this entertaining thread over at BoingBoing, wherein people are posting childhood illustrated fiction. That got me thinking of something that I recently re-discovered while unpacking, packing and repacking storage boxes. Two friends (I'll protect their anonymity) and I crafted The Ten Commandments of Dating Ettiquette. At the time we were about 14, and obviously knew very little about dating.

The sad thing is how little I've learned in the intervening years.

This short film, entitled 80s Ending, is an homage to John Hughes (et al) movies of the eighties such as Some Kind of Wonderful, The Breakfast Club, The Karate Kid, etc. It's a kind of summary of every teen movie that ever climaxed. It's kind of only guffaw-worthy, but it's enjoyable from a recognize-the-stereotype film (headband wearing, thick-accented Asian guy included).
