i have loved urban cowboy ever since i can remember. as a kid i think i was particularly drawn to it because of the music and i liked john travolta. i remember searching for the soundtrack for years. when i was a freshman in high school, i finally found it on cassette at music +. i was sooo stoked. i immediately set to work memorizing every word to devil went down to georgia, looking for love and lyin' eyes. since those high school days i have always kept an eye out while thrifting for a gilley's t shirt. well, a couple months ago my lucky day came!
it's a guys shirt and looks as though it's never been worn. here's the one i really want to find.
i actually made ruben take me to the gilley's in vegas about ten years ago to get a shirt. it was a real locals only, cowboy bar. some guy tried to start a fight with ruben for absolutely no reason (actually, it was probably because of how he looked) and this old lady was following me around telling me how much she liked my purse. neither of us will ever forget it!
this past halloween i wanted to be bud and sissy but ruben wouldn't :( maybe i can convince him for this year.
"you a real cowboy?"
i love how so many movies with john travolta have dance sences. this one is rad!
here i am trying to dance like him. what a dork!
ok. i think you get the idea. i love everything about this movie. period.
