I’ma Have Me Some Fun Tonight.

What with the new “Predators” movie getting decent reviews,
I think I’m gonna go see it.
But only after I’ve watched the original movie for the 200th time.

Seeing “Predator” as a kid was a great experience.
It was the first “War” film I ever saw and the first time I ever heard Little Richard’s “Long Tall Sally“.
You don’t forget those things.

Predator” was also cool because it was about a 7 foot alien hunting down Army guys whose leader was Arnold Schwarzenegger back when Schwarzenegger was the toughest Motherfucker in the World:

After I saw that film,
I’d greet everyone I knew with: “Dylan! You Son of a BITCH!”

During and after school,
We played a game called “Dead Man’s Fall“.
Ever heard of it?

What you do is:
Choose one kid to stand on the ground and the rest of you stand in a line on a high (And preferably dangerous) wall.
The kid on the ground pretends to kill you by any imaginary means he wants to.
You all fall off the wall and whoever performs the most convincing death is the winner!

It was a great game and one of us would almost always go Billy from “Predator”.
Big war cries and imaginary knifes across the chest!

One of the funniest things I remember is a wee boy who lived next door to me called Jordan.
He was the wee Brother of my pal Gavin.
Jordan was only 7 and one time during a game of “Dead Man’s Fall”,
I caught him pretending to shave his face and muttering:
I’ma-Have-Me-Some-Fun-Tonight…I’ma-Have-Me-Some-Fun-Tonight“.

He was only 7!
Ha Ha!
