Compared to King this guy’s a monk!

I still remember the first time I watched Crooklyn. Seeing this depiction of a Brooklyn neighborhood in the 70’s blew my mind away. It’s not because of the culture of it  or even the style of the 70’s that got me. What had my eyes glued to the tube like a child’s eye on their favorite candy was the fact that this movie was showing my childhood on screen. I couldn’t believe that my childhood was right before my eyes. People say, “There’s nothing new under the sun” well this is a perfect example of that. It had me flash back to my past like an old man on a park bench. When the movie was over, all I could do is smile and realize when I was a child, I helped make  the world go round.
