I was just talking to my friend, Eric, the other day and he mentioned watching Bridge to Terabithia, which I had read in school. I started talking about how the movie was played up like a Chronicles of Narnia type deal, but the book was really all about the boy and the girl.

And we started talking about how the girl still dies in the movie and how she died in the book. So Eric says that in the movie they show the boy at the funeral, and I interject with, "And they buried her Where the Red Fern Grows, right next to the dogs".

And that caused us to start writing what WE thought was the best movie ever, which was like the Epic or Super Hero movies, only it's called American Literary Classics The Movie. Then we started going into how the two dogs from Where the Red Fern Grows were rabid and walking down the street, and they had to call Aticus Finch out to come shoot them.

Neither one of us have read many literary classics, so as far as we got was that the boy eventually gets shot down and falls into a pool cause he knew Daisy had a hit and run. But we did decide that at one point, the boy has to go to court because he's accused of teaching evolution in school.

Still, we are convinced that this film must be made. And we had planned to resurrect Gregory Peck to reprise his role, but we couldn't decide if we wanted to resurrect Spencer Tracy or Jack Lemmon.

Kernels rocked. I remember frequenting the one in Oakridge quite often, but it's no longer there. I don't think there are any left in Vancouver. (and their main policy was free sampling to teenagers)

So, after some extensive googling... wikipedia was useless on this... I found an incredibly lonely and poorly developed website chronicling the original history of tiger beat.
Here is that website:

I can only assume that Tiger Beat's name came from the cartoon tiger on the cover who's heart contains info on the "hearthrobs". Is it possible that the tiger's heart beats for these teen guys? Is it a male tiger who's sexually repressed or is it a female tiger?
Or is tiger beat just reporting on the "beat" (ie: street news) about "tigers" (ie: teen hear throbs).
You're guess is as good as mine.

Also, the guess that tiger beat is online still is correct. The website is obnoxiously pink and loud... and apparently Bop is a sister magazine. I believe someone should investigate this teen magazine monopoly... its too powerful!

Hey guys..
As soon a Graham mentioned Bucky O' Hare, I thought that I would need to email you guys a link to that theme song. Lo and behold you had it posted in the summary already. Isn't that song amazing? I am barely joking in my sentiments towards it. It is so epic and funny and weird and cool. Plus that last chord knocks it out of the park. Agreed? Agreed.
