Between a hero and an antihero?
And in fact, the forgotten ones may be the most important of all. So here they are: The five childhood friends and the lessons they taught us that both we, and Hollywood, could stand to pay a little tribute to. They probably had hippy, new-ager, do-what-you-feel kind of parents.
Maybe he was a home school kid that you always saw plunking quarters into a Continue Reading Below Advertisement Street Fighter machine at thebut never saw in class. Maybe she was the girl next door that would occasionally dance naked in the yard while you were stuck waiting for the bus.
It was weed and everything else in their home life would mirror that same foreignness as well. It was pure anarchic fantasy, like the first hour of Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.
Unfortunately, the second hour was also like Willy Wonka -- the part where shit abruptly gets real and psychologically scarring. Oddly cool with Gene Wilder, though. Nick seemed completely normal at first, and indeed, we got along brilliantly. Our priorities were totally in sync: We would empty out milk jugs, fill them back up with water, string them up from the rafters of my back porch, wrap our hands and feet in ace bandages, and pretend to be Continue Reading Below Continue Reading Below Advertisement Bloodsport.
You all know who I meant. Totally normal, prepubescent boy stuff. But all that was at my house, until one day Nick invited me over to Continue Reading Below Advertisement his. When I arrived, I found his home entirely empty save for a futon on the living room floor.
His mom thought furniture oppressive, I suppose, or maybe she just smoked all of the chair money. Most remarkable to me, however, was seeing that blank expanse of wall where the TV should have been. No matter what form they may take, no matter their beliefs or ethnicity, their family never, ever owns a television.
To a pop-culture addled kid with a working single parent read: It was baffling, upsetting, and seemed generally unsafe somehow, in a way I could not place. The most resounding culture shock, however, came from the fact that Nick was allowed to swear - not just in general, but directly at his mom: It was a whole new world!
The lesson the Alien taught us was two-fold: One, that freedom from normalcy is a beautiful thing sometimes. But the Alien also taught us that the normal life we felt to be occasionally confining is that way for a reason: One or two rounds would pass, at most, before my jaded, over-stimulated child-brain needed to up the ante.
Now it was hide and seek, but also freeze tag. Then it was team hide and seek. Then the boundaries expanded and expanded, eventually disappearing entirely. Night-time hide and seek where you fought everybody after you found them.
That game inexplicably lasted an entire summer, and by the end, every player had jury-rigged up Continue Reading Below Continue Reading Below Advertisement A-Team-esque specialty weapons.
Nick built a nightstick out of PVC pipe and filled it with sand. Sean wrapped an aluminum bat in Nerf foam. Mickey had one of those flexible cable bike locks, with a padlock snapped onto each end.
He called them bike-chucks. Once discovered, I would charge at my opponents, screaming and dragging the steel tip on the asphalt, sparks hurling up behind me into the night. Looking badass adds like 10 damage points to any move.
Like this, in my head. Like a chubby 11 year old in Bermuda shorts holding half a golf club, in reality. Somehow, not a single neighbor called the cops that summer to report the epic child-war being waged every night in their backyards, beneath their decks, and on one occasion, inside of their empty pool.
It went on way longer than it should have, and we all earned way more than our expected allotment of scars.
To teach you the value of boundaries as a child.
