|Cast: The usual cast of losers....|
Director(s): Who wants to be credited with this?
Not a real movie!
Well... I thought it had to be done.....
And Yes, Mike, I WILL bring the Apricot Beer!
I was asking YOU if YOU wanted ME to BRING YOU some apricot beer...so I went ahead and bought two cases...
OH WELL, MORE FOR ALL OF US!!
Mmmmm, Apricotty Gewdeness
AND SOUR GUMMIS?!
POL! There actually IS a cake called "Apricot Bliss" Mmmm, sounds very...........non-allergenic:
6? diameter $29.00
9? diameter $39.00
organic brown rice flour, organic garbanzo bean flour, organic maple syrup, filtered water, organic canola oil, organic palm fruit oil, organic powdered evaporated cane
And YES - MANOSITY...
I have sent out my picks for the movie list, including (but not DISCLUDING):
These are merely SUGGESTIONS, mind you, as concenssus has it that we will hit the local faceless MEGA-videostore (i.e. Rogers/Blockbuster/Videotron) and see what we can see.
Jesus would have wanted it this way.
Well, it wasn't the best crop of movies we ever watched, though I think it was the most....so quantity over quality this time (as it always is, methinks).
Bad movies (some too bad even for Manos), ingestion of meat, fish, gummis, chocolate, chips & salsa, and even a minor glimpse of cinema boobage - it's what we all came here for, no?
All that, coupled with a good turnout (except Deril), and what more could you ask for?
The review "Play enjoyed by all" speaks for itself.
I must commend Steven on being a superb host. He smoked us a salmon, let us loiter and litter, endured lots of PLONT, banished his wife and kids for the weekend, punched Rob a lot, moved an extra sofa into the den for added comfort, and let me crash in a comfy bed. If we can raid his home at least once a year, no problems here.
Sir, I salute you!
First of all, thanks to Mitch for posting that lovely picture. When I was a kid, I wanted to go into the armed forces; based on that picture, I am now regretting the fact that I never did...
Okay, back to the fest. Yes, four stars for Steven's hosting duties. Very kind.
However: sorry guys, but the movie selection this year was probably the worst ever. I got more enjoyment out of Alien 3000 and Raging Sharks. There was no camp humor in the films. And I found our only enjoyment came from actually trying to extract some quality from the movies - good CGI in D-War, good production values and ending in Shrooms. So, minus 1.5 stars for movie selection.
Food. Mitch, you are a generous man. But with the amount of caramels I ate, I LITERALLY still felt sick to my stomach 24 hours later! That, combined with the volumes of Sweet Chili Doritos I consumed, and I am moments away from a double diagnosis of diabetes and collitis. Thank YOU! (And thank my sheer lack of willpower!) Minus 1 star.
And, while the momessos thing didn't work out, it was MY idea to go there, and you jagoffs decided to go out for lunch knowing full well I couldn't join you. One of the results was that I arrived starving, and hence had much less control when faced with a stone weight of caramels. Minus 0.5 stars.
And, sorry Steven, have to take you to task for this: you smoked a salmon not exactly out of generosity, but to USE US as guinea pigs! You didn't even taste it yourself! Sigh. As someone who missed out on smoked meat, I would have MUCH preferred heading out for a real meal for dinner. Instead we each got a few bits of experimental fish, and I filled the void with caramels and doritos. Minus 0.5 stars.
So, sorry to say, it was "The WORST Manos Fest EVER!"
And for the record, I was wrong about my theory about D-War. Despite being a Korean movie, the director chose to have American leads.
Jeff, no offense, but sounds like lots of complaining from you. There is such a thing as "ordering-in". It's a cool thing, you pick up the phone, order a pizza or whatever you feel like and then they come abd bring it right to your door. I would have KILLEd to sit there and stuff myself on caramels, but it just wasn't in the cards. This is what happens when you tie yourself down with a wife and kids and then move out to Toronto.
Manos or no Manos, Jeffy, you KNOW by now what to expect. We had previously mentioned that our lunch would be Momesso's...at noon. You wanna show at 3:30? Then eat beforehand, or better yet, stop at Momesso's for take-out - it's right by your parents' house too. You called from the road, you knew what we were up to.
And yes, willpower! Last time you complained about eating 3 pounds of chocolate-covered almonds (poor baby!) so I tried to get something I knew you'd like (and sours for Mikey).
Next time, you can bring hummous and pita and granola, add it to Mike & Derek's Gay Apricot Beer, and finish turning Manos into Fagfest.
There! I said it!
Fagfest??? Is the Billdozer back in the fold??
Perhaps, but I meant 'fags' as in 'cigarettes'.
I mean, come on now.
Interesting what keywords make certain individuals "perk up"....
