I busted out The New Kids from the VHS selection last night and this is one crazy 80's teen movie. It's like a mix between Pretty In Pink (Spader, Stolz, Lori Loughlin) and Straw Dogs (pitbull attacks, multiple shotgun murders, script by Harry Crews).
Spader, as soulless killer with fake southern accent, is hot as fuck. And there is an out-of-nowhere, S&M-ey scene between him and the male lead, in which he's in little blue speedo things.
This video clip pretty much sums it up. You can catch Loughlin (Aunty Becky from full house) and Stolz, and then Spader struts in. There's a weird scene in which Loughlin is showering with some kind of paste-on breast coverings, I bet it's because she wasn't 18 when this was filmed.
If that's not your cup of tea, here's an article about ridiculously hopped american beers from the nytimes. Eww-even just reading this makes me feel like I can taste that gross bitter hops taste that you get from beers like these. Why does America always get everything wrong? Even when Americans get into something cool (craft beers) they fuck it up (making extreme hopped beers with 20% alcohol).
