AN ABUNDANCE OF WIENER NEVER CALLS FOR A GREAT TIME
Like I noted yesterday, I went to the Star Wars midnight showing with a group of pals.
Yeah, I'm never doing that again.
There was about 1,000 people with tickets waiting to get inside the 10 theatres playing the film. Little did I know that we had to be there three hours prior to the showing just to get a decent seat.
Luckily, those three hours went by pretty fast. First of all, there were people in costumes (for those who know Beau, he dressed up -- as a Jedi -- hah), then there were the science fiction elitists, then there were games, and cheap food, and, well, it was an event.
To pass the time, some people in the group I was in wanted to play a game called The Star Wars Game Game.
It's a word game that goes like so:
I say a word that is Star Wars related, like -- Luke -- and you have to take the last letter -- 'E' -- and find a Star Wars related word that starts with that last letter. It was so lame that I just had to join in.
NERD 1: LUKE THKYWALKER
NERD 2: REBEL ALLIANTH!!! lol
NERD 3: ENDOR!!
NERD 4: R2-D2
NERD 5: OBI WAN KENOBI
Yeah, it went like that for about a good half hour or so. People take this franchise WAY too seriously.
GUY 3: OMFGZ, DUDE, YOU KNOW THATH NOT PART OF THE REPUBLIC, PFTT LOLZ, THO THTUPID! [projectile snot]
Then, if that wasn't nerdy enough, a drove of supernerds ran to the front of the theatre and had a light saber battle. Oh, and one of the guys was dressed as Chewbacca.
Did I mention that we were in a theatre for THREE HOURS before the FREAKING MOVIE EVEN STARTED?!
Then, if that's not bad enough, it smelled like Nerd in the theatre. It smelled of B.O., Ramen Noodles, and unlost virginity.
I have to mention the idiocy of these fans; they make Hanson fans look tame.
They see the Feature Presentation reel.
WHOOWHOWHO WFHAOEYAHAHHAHAH WHOOO YEA FUCK YEAH!! OMG I CANT BELIEVE THIS IS HAPPENIENIEGg!!!!! AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH OMFGZ!!! ASJFOIENF
Then they see the 20th Century Fox drumroll sequence.
OH MYGAD MY LIFE IS COMEPLEASET YES JORGE LUKAZ YESS YEESS OMFGZ WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OWOOOOOW OWOWO YEAHH RAWWWKWK!! LOL YEHAHHHHHHHHHHH!!!
Then they see the LucasFilms logo.
AOSFHPAFIHEAW0 43RPA3YRA DJASKL A1!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! UGAHO234AHHHHHHH WOOOOOOOOO HYEAHHHHHHHH HILARY DUPH!!!!!!! WOOOOOOOOO
Then the movie starts, and BOOM there's that famous theme.
6 hours of Star Wars insanity, though, is pure hilarity. I could write this entry for the next two weeks in installments just to do justice for the entire experience.
Everyone has to do this, just to feel better about their lives.
I'm just kidding.
May the force be with the hardcore fans, for they'll need all the force they can get their XBOX-molded hands on.
