Martha Bids Keanu Reeves Happy Birthday (aka Deleted Scenes...I'll make it work, trust me)

It's September 2nd. That means I need to bid Happy Birthday to my boyfriend, Keanu Reeves, who turns 45 years old today. But it's also the second Wednesday in post rotation which means I need to say something meaningful about Deleted Scenes.

We can do this, people.

1. I fell in love with Keanu Reeves the summer of 1991 at the age of 13 in a rural Georgia theater to repeated viewings of Bill & Ted's Bonus Journey.
2. I knew his costar, Alex Winter, from a prior obsession with The Lost Boys (the teen vampire obsession long before Twilight and True Blood). But Alex was never meant to be a screen heart throb. Not next to Corey Feldman. Oh yes, in the battle of Coreys, I went Feldman.

3. Corey Feldman suffered from a terrible case of child-star-itis which is probably why he was compelled to star in Dickie Roberts Former Child Star with fellow child star Christopher Knight.

4. Dis all you want on Christopher Knight, he's managed a decent non-reality career including this year's Spring Breakdown with female comic talents Amy Poehler, Missy Pyle, Rachel Dratch, and Jane Lynch.

5. Jane Lynch stars in this year's musical genius Glee! Guess what today is? The re-airing of the Glee pilot!! Even if you watched it back when it first aired in May, and even if you've rewatched it, oh, every day since then, you should still catch tonight's show because it comes with DELETED SCENES!!!!!!! Yes, DELETED SCENES! But wait - I'm not done - Glee stars Matthew Morrison as head of Glee Club.

6. And Matthew Morrison stars in this year's Taking Chances with Kevin Bacon.

Thank you, thank you. I'm here all week.

Glee is on my DVR series list and will be waiting for me when I get back from the UK. And in case my comments make it seem like I know way too much about way too much TV, well, yeah. Alas, I don't have the encyclopedic movie knowledge to be able to create such a masterful post. You are the queen, Martha.

How is it that the Keanu Reeves of Bill&Ted, River's Edge, and Point Blank is the SAME Keanu Reeves of Feeling Minnesota, Much Ado about Nothing, and Dracula?

Martha, the movie is called "Taking Chance". I saw it this weekend at Nancy's with Jeff and Michael... so moving, thank goodness I had kleenex next to me...

You are a genius...I bow down to you. :)

ps. loved Bill & Ted -- just watched it with the kids a few months ago

pps. as in most things, i could see why those scenes were deleted from Glee. While entertaining they didn't advance the plot!
