Anatomy Of An RTC Idea
RTC sees Albert Brooks' The Muse and wonders where
our ideas come from. Here's a peek into the creative process.
1) Monkey says he wants to jump from an airplane someday. SK says,
"You're nuts". Pants says, "That's stupid". Shorty just wants to
2) Monkey claims to be influenced at an early age by the 1981 Treat
Williams / Robert Duvall sky drop flick, The Pursuit of DB Cooper.
3) Pants says he much prefers Fandango as the proverbial
scratch for his parachuting itch.
4) Useless trivia concerning sky diving movies pours out.
5) We write it, you read it.
Here is a list of our most memorable movies featuring people jumping
out of planes. Before you criticize our taste for the inclusion
of a certain Charlie Sheen movie, take note of the absence of both
Operation: Dumbo Drop (why, Ray Liotta,why?) and Honeymoon
in Vegas (nice try, Nic Cage).

Random RTC Fact: The Tom Petty song, "Free
Fallin'" appears on no less than 10 different albums,
including the Jerry Maguire soundtrack and a Stevie
Nicks cover on the hard-to-believe-it-even-exists soundtrack
to TV's "Party Of Five".
