His career was still thriving, with “Groundhog Day” acquiring almost instant classic status upon its 1993 release and 1984’s “Ghostbusters” ranking among the highest-grossing comedies of all time, but the writer-director wanted to return to the city where he’d launched his career as a Second City performer.

never unfollow someone after they post a selfie. hits u right in the self esteem
Selfie’s were more fun in the 90’s, because they usually happened when you were drunk and by the time you remember anything about it, you’ve already picked up the film from Walmart where the photo-processing clerk kept looking at you and laughing. Extra points if you got the film from Target, and learned about how they had no policy against processing nudie pics… wait, what nudie … oh shit.
Loom Knitting Patterns on Ravelry.
This is only a small selection of the loom knitting patterns that are available on Ravelry. It’s only within the past couple of days that the mods added the category of Loom Knitting to the pattern search, after a whole lot of begging on the part of loom knitters.
