The Apple [Oct. 11th, 2004|06:10 pm]
Just me.
"The Apple" was the winning film at bad movie night. It was amazing. Imagine if you wrote a musical in 1980 and your only points of reference were disco and the Rocky Horror Picture Show. Truly awful songs, leaden choregraphy (including a number where it seems that men are dragging their dancing partners across the ground), a Roger Daltry look-alike, and a literal Deus ex Machina ending that comes out of nowhere.

Needless to say, I loved it. You can get it from Netflix, if you're so inclined.

Another bad movie party in 6-8 weeks. Stay tuned.

Sorry I missed it. Hopefully I can make the next one. It's certainly good times!

yep, exactly..

except with more sand, more phat beats, and fewer gay men. The art cars were especially faithful.

there is actually a BM camp called the Space Virgins who dress in silver Lame`, and at some point during The Apple, someone said, "look! they have Space Virgins in the future!"

also, doesn't my credit union's logo (http://www.tapcocu.com/, upper left hand corner) look a lot like the BIM Mark?

It's a natural, natural, natural desiiiiiiiiiiire! To meet an actual, actual actual vampiiiiiiiiiire!

Nice BIM Mark sighting.

The guy who did the music for The Apple, George S. Clinton (aka Joe Pittman from the Daily Post in the film) still does score work -- most recently for the new John Waters film. I woulda figured his fingers had been cut off out of spite.

Bad movie parties are awesome. The last one I attended showed Incubus (the Esperanto movie) and Battleship Earth (the secretly Scientologist movie). I recommend them both highly in their badness.

Poop! I actually wanted to see this movie. That is what I get for staying at home.

Saturday night I saw Showgirls. It IS as bad as everyone says!
