|11:59 pm - We are confirmed for B-Fest!|
As some of you may recall, last January I attended a B-movie festival called B-Fest with evil_jim, matt_william, and a couple of people who don't have livejournals (imagine that). It was a good time (excrutiating, but good), and we'd been planning to go again this year. Tickets sold out quickly last year, so we had people calling as soon as the box office opened. Sadly, all the available spots filled up before we could even get through.
We reserved a spot on the waiting list, and set about planning our own mini-B-Fest. I was going to bring a stack of Ed Wood movies, Vincent Price's Dr. Phibes philms, and numerous "gems" such as Waxwork II, Death Race 2000, Forbidden Zone, and Shock Treatment.
Now I hafta* put 'em all back because our tickets have come through. On Friday morning I'll be heading down to Northwestern University for twenty four hours of
wine, women and song and women  movies -- some maligned, some forgotten, all of questionable quality.
Red denotes movies I've seen and to which I had a negative reaction.
Purple denotes movies I've never seen and was hoping to stay away from.
Blue denotes movies I've seen and actually like.
Green denotes the happiest movie ever. Would otherwise be blue.
Coffy is the color.

Current Mood: good
Current Music: In the Buff -- Closing Time
Sounds exciting-- have a great weekend!
...by which I assume you mean, "I'd rather commit hiri kiri than attend something like that!"
No, it should be fun. B-Fest is basically equivalent to an audience-participation version of Mystery Science Theater 3000. Good times. Bad movies. I'd be psyched if I were in the habit of using the word "psyched."
Naw, I would totally go to something like that.
hara kiri ("cut the middle"), but who even pays attention to details like that? ;)
Ah, thank you! I knew that there were As in there, but searching for various misspellings eventually led Google to suggest that I might have meant "hiri kiri." I used that spelling, but I knew it was wrong.
