I have waited for years for them to return in all of their glory ala John Travolta... It’s not as far fetched as some people may think. Corey was very talented and an awesome actor - I think in recent years he proved this(again)... most of all in lost boys 2... I do not want to take anything away from Mr. Feldman in that movie... However, the best part of it was the cameo or deleted scene of Haim - at the beach with Feldman... Those that follow Corey - know that he was FUCKED UP on the set (those of you that know me, know I do not judge people that have issues with drugs - but that’s a different post) Yet, he managed to be the only part of that movie where the acting in this B movie made me feel like it was an A release. Trust me; I know this is fucked up that I am writing this now - because just maybe Corey would have seen this before he died... And perhaps it could have made a difference.
Anyway, the point I am trying to make is that I am hurt and upset by his death… As I write that I know the people that do not know me IRL (in real life) are thinking what a pussy, but I dare you to meet one of my real friends and try to pass that statement off… I’m not writing this to brag, I’m writing this for those tough guys out there, that turned your back on your childhood heroes – to tell you – you never have to, you can be a tough guy and have feelings. For me, I’m human, I miss Patrick Swayze, I miss MJ, and I miss Corey Haim, and I am no chump.
I wrote to Feldman today, on his blog (check it out if you like (if it ever gets past the moderators) but don’t whore my blog on his please) Asking him to carry on the torch for us… Asking him to once and a while remind us of Haim in his art, I apologized to him for asking him to do this and I thanked him for doing it…. At least I hope that is how it came across….
Its funny how the 80s were a more innocent time, a time when we were bad asses – but there was an innocence and intelligence about us that made us bad asses – I’ll miss ya 80’s - I’ll miss ya Corey Haim - RIP homey - the ultimate 80s badass – I think I would have tried to save you if we were friends.
