Matt Ideas: Frank Miller's Footloose

This is the kind of stuff I come up when I have free days from work. I clearly should be writing other stuff due at The Weekly Crisis and other places, but this idea got into my head last night, and I could not let it go. Whoever was on Twitter at the time probably saw this already. Just imagine that this is Frank Miller's Batman or Daredevil saying these words, come on, try it!

There's something strange about this town. The streets are empty. There is no joy in the dance floor.

It is holding me down. Not anymore. Not this night. Tonight i gotta cut loose. Footloose.

Time to lose my blues. I am yearning, burning for more. Time to kick off my Sunday shoes.

Everyone's playing it cool. Obeying the rules. They don't realize they could fly, if only they'd cut loose. 

I have to turn it around, plant my feet in the ground. Take hold of my soul and let it loose.

And like I said, I couldn't let the idea go, so you also get a movie poster...

That's gold, Jerry! Gold!
