Birthday Drinkalong: The Last Unicorn

last unicorn gif

When I first started letting people pick movies for their birthday drinkalongs, Jane was the most excited.  She assured me she’d been thinking on it for months, but she only actually decided a month or two ago.  TBH, I am a little shocked she didn’t decide on Hedwig and the Angry Inch (if you’ve ever seen Jane’s feet, you’ll understand why), but The Last Unicorn, it is.

I met Jane…well, shit.  Years and years ago on that Harry Potter forum I’ve referenced before (the same place I met Sarah and MT and so many of my other favourite people that live in my computer), but we didn’t actually become friends until ~4 years ago.  Like, I’m pretty sure we had some interactions and I thought she was generally cool, but we didn’t talk a whole lot until we became friends on facebook.  Since then, she’s become one of my favourite shenanstigators.

An example, you ask?  A few years ago, she tweeted that she’d just taken a reservation for her restaurant from someone named Lestat.  I, of course, said that I’d need to see pictures when he showed up.  Most people would laugh me off, or not take me seriously.  Not Jane, though.  She wasn’t able to surreptitiously take a picture, so she drew one for me.

HOW COOL IS THAT?!

And then there was the time that she decided the board room table in a conference room reminded her of Malfoy Manor, so she let me make a ludicrous number of memes using her face.

What I’m saying is, Jane is ridiculous amounts of fun, and I’m so happy I know her.

Her birthday is Monday, but lets all get super trashed tonight in her honour, yeah?

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, JANE!  LOVE YOU!

Itsalmo.st is down, so here’s a different Countdown Timer

Dutch Drinkalong

Dutch

Conversation I had with Will this week:

Subject – Dutch

Him:

You made this movie up, didn’t you?

Me:

Yup.

Him:

The fact that you’ve coerced Ed O’Neill, Ethan Embry, JoBeth Williams, and Netflix to go along with your ruse is astounding.

Me:

I GOT SKILLZ, YO.

How is it possible that you guys haven’t seen this movie?

Regardless, I have no rules this week.  Just get as drunk as possible, I guess.  Also, if you could all go ahead and put our lovely friend MT in your pockets, that would be fantastic.  If ever a person deserved some collective good will/vibes, she’s it.  Love you all, see you tonight.

Addams Family Values Drinkalong

When we did the first Addams Family movie a few weeks ago, I lamented that I hadn’t scheduled the sequel for the following week.  But then Herc and LMo and I watched it together after the rest of you wimped out and went to bed, so it was still a megawin.  And, no, I don’t mind watching this one again after just a few weeks, I love it that much.

Executive Scheduling Decision

So, since announcing the tentative schedule/movies last week, I got a few messages that were basically:

walter too soon

And I’ll admit that I got a little caught up in the thought of not having to worry about coming up with movies to watch that I took it too far.  So.  We’re going to be dropping some Christmas movies (not sure which, yet) and INSTEAD will be focusing on US Thanksgiving for a few weeks.  Which, since we have the actual weekend after Thanksgiving already sorted meant I only had to come up with three.  Thank goodness.

This Saturday we’ll be watching Addams Family Values (to transition out of Hallowe’en mode and cos Camp Chippewa is the fucking best), then Dutch, then Planes, Trains and Automobiles.

I’m updating the schedule now.  Deal with it.

(Also, next time we vote, I’ll make the poll password protected.  We got more votes than we have regulars and I think some randos effed with the numbers.)
