You haven’t watched Adventures in Babysitting in at least a decade, but still found yourself whistling the tune that is creepily whistled in the clip above.

  1. how to tell you’re an aging punk rock nerd: you never saw the movie b/c in 1987 you were driving out to dallas going to clubs like theater gallery and stark…but years later you come across this clip and watch it. 3 minutes and 22 seconds in, you immediately recognize iggy pop’s version of “Real Wild Child” (that’s the aging punk part, here’s the nerd topping-) but since it has been so long AND you’ve been trained as a librarian, you look it up on imdb.com to be sure

    • Each time I hear Iggy Pop in a movie, my opinion of that film is instantly improved. By the way, I may have been younger than the kid in the clip back in 1987, but I do have a leg up in the nerd department. Why, you ask? I look up the trivia section for a movie’s imdb.com page EVERY time I watch a movie… I can’t seem to help it. Lol.
