the Horror...

... a few nights ago the Wife dragged me away from the computer to watch The Rocky Horror Picture Show with her... she's memorized all the lyrics to every single song, so it is usually quite entertaining to watch her lilt along to the tunes and attempt to stay in step with the characters... hey, we're a laugh-a-minute around here...

... so, there we sat... her watching the show with her brain totally focused... and me sitting on the couch daydreaming of other things.. hey, it's really not a bad way to spend a lazy Thursday evening...

... anyway, the point is... the only song in the Rocky Horror that I totally get into is the last one... the one with the line "like a Masai in the rain"... I love that song... never mind, I'm wandering here...

... ok, fast forward a day or so and we're sitting in the living room totally engrossed in The Hunt for Red October... and who should we happen to see popping open hatches but Tim Curry....

... I lost it... for the entire rest of the movie, every scene where Curry appeared I imagined him wearing Dr. Frank-N-Furter's corset under his Russian Naval Tunic and teaching the sailors The Time Warp down in the galley... it was just wrong on so many levels...

... so take my advice, rubberneckers... while both movies are wonderful pieces of entertainment... don't watch them back-to-back... it will damage you... I promise...

Bullshit So Far

I have similar experience when I watch Battle of the Sexes with Peter Sellers. Much as I try to avoid the thought creeping into my head at all costs, I can't not picture Constance Cummings and Robert Morley going at it in full-blown dominatrix gear.

You are a sick bastidge, Mistuh Eric...which is why I respect and admire you...

You know, I've never actually seen the Rocky Horror Picture Show. Really. However, Hunt for the Red October is a favorite of mine, except in book form.

It's like watching Priscilla Queen of the Desert and then watching the Matrix. My poor Mr. Lily was never quite the same after that.

You'd loved Tim playing King Arthur in Spamalot. He was great fun!

He sure got fat, didn't he? I understand he received the Order of Lenin for his role, though.

Yea, he's been in all sorts of roles here and there. I have the same kind of reaction you do.
