2015 marks the 40th anniversary of The Rocky Horror Picture Show.
This movie has become part of our collective consciousness. People who’ve never seen it have somehow experienced the Time Warp, or say, “Dammit Janet!” without really understanding why.
How many times did I wear a bra and slip to the movie theater to throw toast and wear a newspaper on my head? I honestly can’t count. Hot patootie bless my soul, I’ve come home with so much rice in my bra I could have made dinner!
Don’t dream it, be it.
We just wanted to have fun. We wanted to sing and dance and feel like we belonged. Even if it was to a Sweet Transvestite.
