Remix of Danger Zone to be made. Kenny Loggins says he'd love to collaborate the song with a current band.

It's gonna be a hip-hop band. Isn't it? :|

Oh snap, Val Kilmer's going to be in it. He's really let himself go. This is going to be good. :yes:
The demagogue is one who preaches doctrines he knows to be untrue to men he knows to be idiots. ―H.L. Mencken

Bad government is the natural product of rule by those who believe government is bad. —Thomas Frank

Nationalism is an infantile disease. It is the measles of mankind. —Einstein
I’m a nationalist. —Trump

The people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country. —Hermann Göring

He's had a fair bit of cancer, so one might give him some slack for letting himself go.

The only thing I remember about her, was that she and Cruise had sex on a train. Or was it on a motorbike?

I think I was more into jets than women when it first came out...

Then I got more into women than jets. Now I'm old and I've come full circle.

That wasn't Kelly McGillis, that was Rebecca DeMornay in the train scene.
