    Well, I will NOT be able to come anymore. I have a scenic painting workshop to attend at 8 the next morning and driving home that early in the morning doesn't apeal to me. Sorry gang! I'll try my best to make the next one!

    Yeah Megan, I understand. That would be a bit much. Have fun tho.

    Christine, do you have a DVD player as well as a VCR?

    Also, are we going for actually scary movies (which really is relative) or funny/scary movies (like Young Frankenstein or Elvira: Mistress of the Dark (love that one)), or supposed to be scary but are really funny movies (like any Friday the 13th after number 2)? Just looking for a clue.

    As a suggestion, Peter Jackson has some excellent early career horror films. Bad Taste, Dead Alive, and The Frighteners are some of my favorites. Just a thought.

    I think we wanted to avoid doing the six degrees of separation thing early on when we were planning this, but I'm cool with that changing.

    From the original list, I think Mars Attacks! and Sleepy Hollow would fit in well with a horror-themed night.

    I understand that the original intent was to have these be SW themed movie nights, but for the sake of just a fun get together of SW fans near halloween, I thought we could bend the intent this time.

    I have both a DVD player and a VCR. :)

    As far as movie choices go, does anyone have these in their collection, or will I need to see about renting them? That is, whatever we finally decide on...

    I'll be buying soda and fixing up some munchies for this event, but if anyone wants any beverages of an adult nature, I'm asking that someone volunteer or or those interested byob.

    I've never heard of Bad Taste. What's it about?

    Hey guys--

    Has there been any discussion here about a possible Episode 2 DVD release viewing/party? I've been seeing stuff on other FanForce sites about what they're planning. I know you're trying to just line up the Nov 1 night, but any ideas on this? Is it grounds for it's own thread?

    Okay, so whoever is coming for the movie night on November the 1st and needs directions, PM me and I'll get them to you.

    Anyone else have any more movie suggestions?

    I need directions. I know I was there once already, but I wasn't paying attention because Eric was navigating.

    Should we still go on with this or not? So far, the only for sure person who is coming is Kenobi, marajoan is a possibly, and Bishop76 looks like a definite maybe not (due to a friend coming back to the states from overseas). We can run this late (hubby decided to go spend the night with his folks so we can have the place to ourselves all night and not have to worry about when he wants to go to bed (the one downside of marrying an older man :) )), so Wampas, Bwing and Sy, anyone else, any interest?

    I'm still interested! I just don't know it I'll have to work that night or not. Just in case I don't (some miracle, perhaps), is there anything I can bring? Something bland?

    Actually, I'm making cupcakes, having leftover Halloween candy (if there is any), was going to buy some chips and salsa and soda. I don't know what people might be interested in for food (and there's always calling for a pizza). Don't worry about catering to my eating requirements...I'd rather if someone is going to bring something that it's something that y'all can enjoy. I find my way to work around my limits, and just because I have some limits, doesn't mean y'all should suffer. :)

    I'll PM you directions, Sy.

    Just warn me if you cancel because it is a long drive for nothing if a miracle happens and I don't have to work.

    If anyone else is interested in coming to my place tonight, PM me with your phone number and I'll call you after work with directions (our computers will be down all day at work today, so I won't be able to see your message until 5ish when I get home). Just a reminder that it's starting around 7:30 tonight. :)

    As I mentioned elsewhere previously, in addition to Sleepy Hollow and Bad Taste, I'm bringing Frankenthumb and bad taste.

    Sorry you couldn't make it, marajoan. You missed a good time, but as I said before, I hope you can make it to something else in the future.
