In what has to be one of the most incredibly stupid acts ever attempted by human kind, two Star Wars fans are fortunate to be alive today, although they are in critical condition fighting for their very lives.
The two fans, male and female, apparently wanted to reconstruct one of the light-sabre duels in the new Star Wars offering, "Revenge of the Sith". Taking glass tubes and filling them with fuel, their hope was to have a real-looking light-sabre. Not suprisingly, once they lit it, the "light sabre" exploded, severly injuring the two.
What amazes me is that we're talking about a 20-year-old guy and a 17-year-old girl. Which begs me to ask the question?....
"What the hell is goin' on around here?"
JAWSFEST ON THE HORIZON
It's hard to believe, but the ultimate experience for the mega Jaws fan is soon approaching. As I've reported previously, my home boy and fellow PCR'r Mike Smith and I are planning to attend and take in the wonder that is Jaws.
And in what is to surely be one of the more memorable moments the movie will be shown on a massive outdoor movie screen, right on the beach of Amity Island itself, complete with guitar player, food, beer, and bon fires.
Oh yeah, baby. It will be a blast.
MONSTER BASH ALSO LOOMING
And as any self-respecting horror maniac can tell you, 'tis the season for yet another Monster Bash, held annually in the greater Pittsburgh area. Once again, everyone's favorite Uncle, Forrest J Ackerman, will be in attendance for what will surely be the weekend of weekends in Monster Movie Lore.
As good fortune would have it, I have that territory now in the job I have. Also, I've been invited to not only attend the Bash, but hang with the great one (4E) himself, thus I'm busting my hump to try and schedule a visit down there for the weekend in question, which is June 26, 27, 28.
It will surely be a fun time for all. And if I make it, count on photos galore for PCR.
Till next time, take care, and God bless.
Oh, and happy Memorial Day weekend! Watch out for the loonies!!
That's Loonies, not Goonies. Which I advise you to stay away from, too.
