Being a guy who grew up in the 80s, I saw a lot of Corey Feldman’s work– the good (Stand By Me, Goonies, Gremlins, Lost Boys), the bad, and the really bad. Even though I think his best acting days are behind him, I appreciate the fact that he keeps trying new projects and ignores his critics.
Jon Samuelson and I were messing around with a new app tonight called Rithm. It’s a fun app that allows you to send short snippets of music to friends. I found a Corey Feldman version of the song “Imagine” (yes, very risky to try to cover Lennon), and made a little Rithm clip and sent it to Jon. Jon made mention of it on Twitter, and then the magic happened. Corey Feldman himself retweeted Jon.
Yes, this is a weird nerdy story about being retweeted by a 1980s child actor, but the 14 year old inside my 40 year old self got pretty excited.
