Okay. What is UP with people? My sister made me watch Wife Swap after Alias last night (the fact that she actually wanted to watch it is an entirely different issue altogether, but, still: ew), and in it I saw one of the worst specimens of "Christianity" and "America" since George W. Bush. blah, blah, proof that people who read the Bible every morning are insane weirdos. also, wife swap spoilers, if you care )

So, anyway, here is my main question, because I seriously DO NOT understand: Why do people even care what other people do?

I like Krycek. Some people like Mulder. Some people like Krycek AND Mulder. Am I going to flip out and call someone depraved because they like something I don't? No, because that is stupid. Am I going to go on a crusade to take away the civil rights of Mulder lovers because I think he is annoying, and often grossly incompetent? Um, NO, because that would not only be stupid, it would be UNCONSTITUTIONAL.

For those of you who are new here: this country was founded on the idea of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, and unless you are infringing on someone else's right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, you are pretty much supposed to be able to do what you want with yourself. I do not see how allowing homosexuals to get married, or an adult to smoke a joint in her own home, or people who like Mulder to rhapsodize on his many Jesus-like qualities effects ANYONE except the people who are actually participating.

So why do other people care? Someone explain it to me.

[ profile] zerosen 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.
