There are some people who are like songs. Seeing them, hearing them talk, even thinking about them takes you back to a different time or place. They’re like bookmarks in your life. And inevitably, these people become more like symbols that people.

In fact, sometimes that’s all they are. Twenty-foot-tall symbols of Lloyd celluloid. You don’t know them. At all. But you’ve listened to them say thousands of words. Sometimes you even have their words memorized. Like words to a song you didn’t realize you knew. And yet, even though you’ve never really met them in any kind of reality, they become part of yours. Part of your memories, your past. It’s a little strange.

John Cusack is one of these people. Because he’s been a part of my memory bank ever since Sixteen Candles. (Yes he was in it as Bryce, the nerd. He was no Jake Ryan. But still. I liked him. Felt sorry for him. Would have totally been his friend, borrowed his geometry notes. Potentially kissed him.) Then came The Sure Thing. Liked him more. And then Better off Dead and Lane Meyer. This is when he officially seeped into my brain. Hard.
I think I saw this movie more than 50 times one summer, because to me, at 16, it was beyond hilarious. And somewhere in my subconscious, I know every line said in this entire movie.

Films, books, songs, characters. They’re the soundtracks of our past. Because they get in your head and become you.

So which John Cusack have you become?

    very funny. i too, as it turns out, am rob gordon. and i too adore john cusack. though that doesn't surprise me as the similarities between Girl Con Queso and the Upside Up continue to stack up.

  2. Fizzle says:

    me, too. love me some john cusack. even when it's him playing sheepish in con air. // lucky girl, rob gordon. i am walter "gib" gibson – from the sure thing. "spontaneous, crazy, adept at slacking (and finding interesting ways to guzzles beers)".To a T.

  3. Jill says:

    I'm not sure which one I am, but I sure wish my husband would seranade me with a big boom box playing "In Your Eyes."

    I am John Kelso from MIDNIGHT IN THE GARDEN OF GOOD AND EVIL. I am "Compassionate. Inquisitive. And you look really hot in a tuxedo" (who knew?!) I had better get myself a tux! Do men dig chicks in tuxes?! Maybe my real movie is VICTOR/VICTORIA.

  5. Anonymous says:

    I too am John Kelso. Sadly, the one movie of his that I haven't seen. And, La – didn't ask for a dime, TWO DOLLARS!!!Good times at LHS. – Em

    John Is one of my life bookmarks too. I feel in loooove with him as Lloyd Dobbler so I think I totally biased my answers to get that on this quiz.

    Am I crazy that I love Grose Point Blank John Cusak? I have to go take the test…Love the pictures of the party. You are a wicked party giver.I think that my newly learned life lesson rings true here too..when it comes to confetti in your underwear…less IS more. :-)

  8. Super Zoe says:

    Who is the female John Cusack?!

  9. Girl con Queso says:

    SZ, I want to say Joan Cusak, but that's probably too obvious to be accurate. Molly Ringwald's not exactly right. Ally Sheedy? Meg Ryan? I don't know.

  10. Mommy off the Record says:

    I'm John Kelso from Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil and apparently I look hot in a tuxedo. Who knew?*WTF? I just noticed that super zoe wrote the exact same comment!*

  11. Jenny says:

    I'm John Kelso too. God I loved that book. The female John Cusack? I'd go with Janeane Garofalo.

  12. Jill says:

    Parker Posey?

  13. Kristen says:

    My husband LOVES John Cusack, especially in High Fidelity.

    Lloyd Dobler….Say AnythingI LOVED him in Serendipity as well as his kooky 80s flicks. He's definitely a hottie. :)
