I had a lightbulb moment earlier today: I need to be the person the 20-30 year old me needed to know. Operating within that context will be good for everyone.

Helter Skelter

March 24 1982- CBS Late Night Movie showed acidflashback horror movie Blue Sunshine. Having a disconnect imaging this. I miss the experience of the post 11pm news tv world a little bit, especially late movies.

All this talk about the new Tarantino has me thinking about Helter Skelter. I know I saw it as a late movie, and I could have sworn I'd watched it on the CBS Late Movie but this (pretty exhaustive) list has it playing in 1979.
I know I didn't see it when it was broadcast in 1979. I was ten and I certainly didn't stay up that late.

I remember, oddly enough, my cousin Beth talking about the original broadcast, about Railsback's eyes.

So, I can date it in my head to the mid eighties, because I remember doing work on a research paper (Congressional hearings into juvenile delinquency and comic books) at the main branch library in Portsmouth and going down the research rabbit hole for a couple of Manson related topics because I'd seen the movie. So like '86-'87 if I was doing it for English class, '85-'86 if I was doing it for History class.

I get nostalgic for Late Movies every eighteen months or so.

Just gave someone a motivational talking-to.
Time to take my own advice.

Heaven help us all.
