I bought Noodles for lunch (yet again) and decided to carry out since the place was packed. I walked all the way over to the park a few blocks away to enjoy my pene rosa with the latest Onion only to find my efforts thwarted by mosquitoes. When they start to bite through denim I give up my ground and move. The tables by Rockie's were fine and I enjoyed the rest there. That was Friday.
Anyway, I just got back from the first day of Anime Club's annual Craptacular fest. Highlights include:
Matt (not the one you're thinking of, the smelly one) showed this one between shows a while back but I gots the DVD which is LICENSED and has extra cool stuff like stereo sound and a deleted scene and extra stuff to read! Buy it now!
Short movie with a rhyming title where pretty much every enemy they've ever fought pit up against them once again... and lose.
Jesus Christ: Vampire Hunter
Which is horrible yet awesome. It's kung fu and new testament antics with JC beating the crap out of goth dykes. A must never see again!
Uetna: the live action musical
I have no idea what this is but it was horrible. However, I did like the lead's voices. This was bad enough that I pulled out my Game Boy and finished dungeon six on the original Zelda (with Sara L. at my shoulder, no less.) Toward the end (of the movie, not my game) sacredspud leaned over to me and said, "Y'know, Jim, if you invited me here hoping to extract revenge for 'They Live' you have finally succeeded." I'm really proud of this because when he first showed me that horrible, horrible movie a few years ago I was horribly traumatized and swore my revenge. I forced him to watch "Plan 9 From Outer Space" which was a big mistake because he loved it (that sick bastard.) Thank you to whomever brought Utena for now I can rot in peace.
The Wizard of Speed and Time
I first saw the trailer for this at B-Fest (three times: forward, backward and forward again) and knew that I had to have it; trailer, movie and all. This was the movie and just as wonderful as I hoped nand the fact that I never saw it throughout my childhood upsets me, but at least now I can have it for my own.
was enjoyed by some and given a WHAT THE HELL WAS THAT?!!?!!?!11" by others. Pretty much what I expected. I wanted to play some of the flash that I brought but by that time it was eleven and time to pile out. More tomorrow. Now I must dig up more stuff and prepare.

P.S. Before I forget again, here's a link to the latest big thing: a live, streaming video programme for people who want to watch paint dry. Check it out.
