|10:27 pm - Booya! B-Fest!|
We got our tickets to B-Fest!
I'm pretty thrilled about that, since last year we got on a waiting list immediately and didn't get tickets until very shortly before the festival. Somehow our big group got tickets damn near instantly this year, which is a load off everybody's minds. Of course, now we need to think about hotel accommodations and transportation, but we've got some time. Just a few more weeks, and I'll be able to sit uncomfortably through 24 hours of B-movies and cult classics. I can't wait!
The lineup this year is fantastic:
Brain That Wouldn't Die
Revenge of the Creature in 3-D
The Wizard of Speed and Time (Short version)
Plan 9 From Outer Space
Invasion of the Star Creatures
The Hypnotic Eye
Hot Rods to Hell
The Incredible Melting Man
King Kong vs. Godzilla
Can you tell I'm excited? I'm excited.

The Beastmaster + Krull = Crazy go-nuts awesome
Is it the first or second Beastmaster film that has the creepy external digestion bat-people?
Y'know, I've never seen any of those movies, so I can't tell you which Beastmaster you're thinking of, but I'm still excited.
Actually, I'm lying. I've seen bits of Krull, but was steered away from it by the girl who was played Columbia until 2003 (or so). Her last name is Krull, and she's about 10 years older than I am. That movie ruined her life for a few months when it was new.
And actually, one of my earliest memories was watching The Beastmaster on TV in the early '80s, but that must have been its first TV broadcast, and I really only remember the title.
Krull is possibly the greatest campy sci-fi/fantasy movie I have ever seen. The bad guys have lasers and Stormtrooper armor, and the good guys have togas and swords.
