current mood: nostalgic
I guess its time to get back to the business of truth. Although I like lying. It's fun :D
I've been working on a movie since the beginning of August. Nothing to get too excited about, we're not out shooting film or anything like that. It's an anthology film that my Fest comrade and I are putting together for our upcoming 20th anniversary. (Gee, everyone's celebrating anniversaries!) "Fest" is a 24-hour movie marathon/party we host every winter. It came to our attention that not everyone has been able to make it to Fest all nineteen years, or *gasp* they might have fallen asleep once or twice and missed something. So we're re-visiting 99 of our favorite films this year. Eleven will be re-shown in their entirety. The other 88 are making appearances in "Memories of Fest," our little movie. It's two hours of pure glee and I'm looking forward to its big premiere on March 2nd. Meanwhile, I'm still polishing it and making it look pretty.
I watched the most amazing movie on video last night. It's enough to make me regret that Fest 20 will be purely retrospective. A work colleague put me on to this film called "ThanksKilling." Yes! It's a Thanksgiving-themed killer turkey movie, made by a pair of 21 year-olds on a budget of $3500. (Best film by 21 year-old amateurs since the Taylor Twins' "Evil Cult." Which by the way, is playing again at Fest 20 this year.) This film stars a foul-mouthed (no pun intended) evil turkey puppet named Turkie. Got an extra small gravy-flavored condom? Turkeyologists all over the world know it as ThanksKilling! Really, check it out and have a giggle (or gobble gobble motherf***er).
Buck-Tick's 25th Anniversary announcement has got me all nostalgic for the old days. I have a folder full of clippings I call "The Orphanage," because it contains random pages, partial articles, and the remnants of a young fan's scrapbook that I can't properly identify. I've scanned a batch of some of the older ones to share today.
