    A Nightmare on Elm Street

    ★★★½

    I used to love this movie. I remember begging my Mom for the Nightmare on Elm Street box-set. 

    I didn't know if I'd still like it as much, but it was at the thrift store in a worn and torn case that I found somewhat charming. I couldn't resist.

It’s all about healthy emotional expression and finding validation and self-acceptance. Also, body positivity is so fucking Punk Rock.

    Jack Black and Richard Linklater taught me that one Rock show can change the world on a super interpersonal and meaningful level and anyone who disagrees can STEP OFF.
