So as a bonus to this post, I went to YouTube searching for a few clips of awesome Bubble Gum Bubbles in retro films, and found two channels completely dedicated to Bubble Gum with 5-10 sec clips from various films.
I love the Internet.
So I picked a few of my favourites...
Ferris Bueller's Day Off - Boring Economics Class scene
Grease - Beauty School Drop Out scene
(this may be the best bubble ever!)
Grease 2 - Stephanie Zinone
(I have a real thing for Grease 2. I have loved it since I was little and enjoy it
more than the first movie. Bold statement I know, but there - I've said it.)
Michelle Pfeiffer had a cool way of sucking her bubbles back in before they popped.
Hard to do - try it next time you whip out the bubblegum.
Note: Had some technical difficulties with the original Freestyle Frisbee post. It was one of my current faves, so I'm very happy to now re post itand share it again. Huge thanks to Ken for his patience and assistance against the dark side of the Internet. Freestyle Frisbee: Take 2. - Donna
Ken Westerfield is a pioneering Frisbee player from the 60's and 70's.

I also found this great short clip from the late 1970's narrated by Barbara Feldon
(Agent 99 - Get Smart), showcasing the talent and rise of Frisbee as a sport.
And a more recent (2009) short clip of two guys playing Freestyle Frisbee on the streets of Paris.
These guys are awesome!
Comb the mullet, slip into that leopard print one piece and let's hit the beach!
Can't help but cast my memory back to Mr 'Leopard Print Perfection' who starred
in a Freaky Friday segment in May 2012.
