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:
"His primary rules were: never allow the public to cool off; never admit a fault or wrong; never concede that there may be some good in your enemy; never leave room for alternatives; never accept blame; concentrate on one enemy at a time and blame him for everything that goes wrong; people will believe a big lie sooner than a little one; and if you repeat it frequently enough people will sooner or later believe it." —From the OSS’s psychological profile of Adolf Hitler

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

Top Gun is sexist, bullish and high on warfare - but we women love it anyway

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.

So you talk about mobs and the working classes as if they were the question. You've got that eternal idiotic idea that if anarchy came it would come from the poor. Why should it? The poor have been rebels, but they have never been anarchists; they have more interest than anyone else in there being some decent government. The poor man really has a stake in the country. The rich man hasn't; he can go away to New Guinea in a yacht. The poor have sometimes objected to being governed badly; the rich have always objected to being governed at all. Aristocrats were always anarchists. - G.K. Chesterton
