and I kicked off the Summer of Fun
this weekend the way we kick everything off: by watching Mystery Science Theater and eating.
The short they showed before the actual movie begged some questions that Kaity and I feel need to be answered: Why the crap did people in the 50s need a public service announcement to inform them of how important springs
(as in, metal coils) were to their lives? Would someone ever actually wish to "never see a spring again in [their] life"? Was there really that big of an anti-spring movement that it would need to be counteracted with a vigorous campaign of pro-spring propaganda? Please, someone help us to understand, so we can move on with our lives!
The actual movie, Squirm
, was quite possibly the greatest thing I have ever seen in my life. The accents! The hair! People sleeping in pitch-black bars, completely unaware of the worms crawing around on their feet! A man being knocked unconscious by and then trapped under a small piece of 1/8" plywood! Mutated killer worms! A worm farm
! A man saying "ZU-prize" instead of suprise in the hick-ish-est accent ever! Seriously, I don't know how they managed to cram so much goodness into one movie.
After MST3k, we watched the Alias finale, which was entertaining, but was made even more entertaining by the random insertion of "ZU-prize" into the dialoge by Kaity and I. And there were a hella lotta places to stick that in, my friends. Seriously, Best. Mispronunciation. Ever. I have more things to say about Alias in my next post, but for now, suffice it to say, it needed some Shirtless!Sark. Vaughn got to be tortured while shirtless; the least he can do is torture Sark while shirtless back.
Next week on the Summer of Fun
: Kingston? Baseball game? Who the hell knows? But I can assure you that it will be FUN.
