O M you know the rest I'm fuckin' tired
It's about 6:20 a.m. and I got home from the Music Box Theatre Sci-Fi Spectacular about 10 minutes ago. It ran about three hours long, so by the time it was over public transportation was running and I managed to avoid spending $10 on a cab ride home. It was really fun, I'll have to do a thorough write-up on it later.
However! One thing that made me extremely happy very early in the day was seeing the flyers for the upcoming Music Box Massacre 3! For those of you unfamiliar, the Music Box Massacre is a 24-hour horror movie marathon usually held on the second weekend in October. Naturally, I'm going to be constantly watching for tickets to go on sale. They sold out pretty quickly last year, and I literally look forward to this more than anything else all year. It is like Christmas for me.
So far the tentative lineup includes Halloween 3 (because it's the 3rd year), Black Christmas (the original!), A Bucket of Blood (Roger Corman beatnik horror film from the 60s!), Fright Night (HELL YES!) and Videodrome. Repeat: Videodrome.
I've been up since 9 a.m. yesterday, so just one last thing before I go collapse for the remainder of the day: for some reason the print of The Terminator that was shown at the Sci-Fi Spectacular had Spanish subtitles on it. During the prologue, a voiceover read the story introduction text in Spanish, leading us all to believe that the film itself was going to be in Spanish. It was almost a disappointment when it wasn't.
