I think it is a well known fact that I love terrible movies. And by terrible I mean amazing.

Therefore, I'm not embarrassed to tell you all that I saw Furious 7 on the opening weekend and then proceeded to talk about it all week at work and tried to rope some of my colleagues into a Fast and the Furious 1-7 marathon.

None of this is really related to Feel Good Friday. I just wanted to say that in case anyone wanted to talk about Fast and the Furious with me, specifically Furious 7 and the scene with The Rock and his arm cast, in the comments section.

Also, I just listened to the How Did That Get Made episode on Deep Blue Sea and I have some feelings and issues. I'll be in the comments section.

Okay, so (1) if anyone wants to re-watch all of the Fast and Furious movies with me, I've got them lined up and waiting and (2) Happy Feel Good Friday!
