I was quite excited when I first heard that there was going to be a movie based on the Beverly Clearly "Ramona Quimby" books (I have since seen the trailer and it looks atrocious). As a kid I watched the Canadian-produced TV show "Ramona" (based off said books). I absolutely loved the show and to this day, the theme song still fills my heart with childhood nostalgia.
Maybe that is why I have found myself such a fan of 10,000 Maniacs' "In My Tribe". For whatever reason, it gives me that same feeling. The weird thing is that it transports me back to 1988 but instead of being 3 I'm 26 years old.... living in San Francisco. Strange, I know.
So here is to my 3 year-old self... keeping it real in late 80's.
