    Let's come up with a meeting time and place for the next amassing.

    If it's to be at the library we need to set a time so I can get us a room- we may not be as lucky as we were last time. Plus we all need to arrange our schedules and synchronize our watches, so please put your thoughts on where and when the meeting should be, below.

    For now, just to have a starting point that we can change- I'm announcing, again, The next meeting is going to be on Saturday, 13 September at 2pm at the Main Library.

    Sunday's fine with me, with advance notice any day is, and Sunday is also a preference of ASkywalker98. I've started with Saturday only because that was the preference stated by most in attendance at the last meeting.

    So you decided to have it on a Sunday, eh? thanks alot guys, I appreciate it...unless you change your mind and have it on a Saturday, then I wouldn't be thanksful, and hate you all to eternity...

    Well, not really.

    So, is that the final date? Or is it still up in the air? I'm fine with Sunday.

    Actually, it's very much still in the air. No one has given an actual opinion about when to hold the meeting except for you, Anthony. Sunday or Saturday are fine with me, but at this rate, no one's going to show up anyway.

    Please people, sound off with your opinions of our next meeting. Am I the only one who's going to be there? I need time to schedule a day off, so please help.

    Now we're getting somewhere. OK, since we're not getting any other feedback, until there's a significant call for another time/day, the September Meeting is now set for Sunday, 14 September at 2pm at the Main Library.

    I want to firm this up, a) so each of us will have time to schedule, and, b) so we don't lose touch and not have a meeting for another 6 months. So I can arrange for the meeting room, I say we make this date final by the end of this week. I'm hoping for a good turn out and want the decision to be as democratic as possible, so any feedback would be hot.

    I like the dinner idea too. I'm wondering if starting at 7pm is a little late for some of us, though. Not me, but maybe somebody. If we do that are we still going to meet at the library? On weekends, the library closes at 6pm.

    We can meet at 2- then we could stage one of those spontaneous mobscenes where we all walk up to lets say a homeless person and start clapping. Then after that loses its fun we go eat!

    I've seen A Clockwork Orange a few too many times to think that'd be a good idea.

    Why you ain't up for a bit of the ol' ultra violence? You know I had to watch that for my Comp II class in college- well we had other movies to choose to watch- but I had never seen it- then to see David Prowse was in it was a little creepy- and to think I only knew Malcolm McDowell from Star Trek Generations and a couple of other movies- but had no clue what kinda movies he had done! That was such a awesome movie- even with all the crazy violence it had some message to deliver. One of Kubricks best films!!! I always love when the Simpons spoof the movie from time to time.

    Malcolm, of course, also stars in... that's right, Caligula!

    And let us not forget the final two hour tele-movie for Lexx! =)

    And the short lived, but overly well done and somewhat "dark" Fantasy Island (I know it got cancelled, but I'd be willing to bet that, had it continued, we would have learned that he was actually Satan, or some form of him, trying to repent for what he had done, but that is just me...)

    Do they have an unedited directors cut of Caligula on DVD? If they do I think we should have a Fanforce viewing of it so we can get ideas for my proposed Darth Caligula feature. You know the reason I think Leia had some problems getting over knowing that Darth was her dad was that he had his way with her as a form of torture.

    They do have a complete and uncut "X-rated" version on DVD, and, I am happy to report, I am the proud owner of it! If you are ever browsing the DVD shelves, the uncut version is in a blue box while the R-rated cut version is in a red box. Both of them have a coin on the cover featuring Caligula's head with blood dripping out of his eye.

    Work of art, really.
