Happy Birthday, Bro!

Today is my brother's birthday. And though I'm going to call him and everything, I thought I'd use this little piece of the Internets to mark the occasion in an Internets kind of way. What's gotten to be a long time ago, he and I had this tradition of sending our parents to bed and watching the movie The Sure Thing. I don't know how many times we've seen it, but I still know most of the dialogue by heart. (With a cast including the likes of John Cusack, Daphne Zuniga, Anthony Edwards, Matthew Modine, Tim Robbins, and with Rob Reiner directing, it holds up pretty well considering.)

I don't see my brother as much as I'd like, and we haven't watched The Sure Thing — together anyway — for ages. And it might be a little while until we get to see it again.

In the meantime, I offer a little nostalgia courtesy of YouTube, complete with VHS look and feel:

Happy Birthday, Bro: I'm talking to you cordless.
