Karate Kid Wallpaper

That night my brain was in The Karate Kid. Waxing cars, painting fences, sanding decks. One of the more memorable images from that movie was Mr. Miyagi out on the beach practicing the Crane Kicks. I thought that would translate into a Minimate wallpaper quite nicely.
I still couldn't stop thinking about the Karate Kid though. The only way would be to watch the movie again. I eventually found a used copy of the box set that included all four movies. Only after watching it did I find that I totally mis-remembered that scene. There was no sunset. There was no silhouette. I don't even think he was wearing the headband at the time. Oh well.
The real tragic part of the story is that about a week after I bought the used copy I found a new copy at Target for the same price. That wouldn't be so bad, but the new copy had a replica headband included. I'm not into cosplay, but I'd wear that to SDCC every year. Who am I kidding? I'd wear it everyday.
