I wanna start with: I so want Josh's loft to hang out in. And what a dream job..developIng and analyzing new toys. So my thing!

Earlier this year while I was in Vegas, I found 'Zoltar the fortune teller' from "Big"! It was sitting outside a memorabilia store..and even better to attract customers... they had a floor keyboard similar to the movie...

Anyway, "Big" was on HBO this morning and it reminded me of my Vegas discovery, so I just had to share it.

I always forget about "Big." I need to watch this again, even though Zoltar always creeped me out!

My advice next time you see Zoltar...don't say...

"I wish I were big ... you creepy fortune teller!"

I remember this was the first movie that Hollywood took Tom Hanks as a serious actor. Weird that it was playing a kid trying to exist in a grown up world.

Valley, have you seen Tom Hanks' first movie, the 80's slasher "He Knows You're Alone?" I like that movie a lot, even though it's a total "Halloween" copycat.

Good movie, when he sings 'Memories' on the phone at the office, hilarious.

Valley, tell me you bought the Zoltar machine?

I've seen "He Knows You're Alone", but it was on regular tv, so it was edited to point I'm not sure who died..ha..but from what I remember it was better than expected. Moral of the movie..don't get married??

Okay..original "Halloween" still ranks as my fav scary movie of all-time. Don't Fear the Reaper!

And Kash..if you'd seen the pricetag on the Zoltar the creepy fortune teller you would know the answer!

Love this movie as well. At the time, wouldn't that keyboard be a Christmas item that parents paid a crazy amount of money for...only to have their kids tramp on it...3 or four times... before it gathered dust and was shoved under a bed!
