The next two months will, for me anyway, be absolutely batshit crazy. My routines will be shattered. Phobias will be confronted. Snacks will be consumed.
Let's start with tomorrow night, as I'll be venturing out to theaters for only the second time this year to enjoy the Rifftrax Live presentation of Plan 9 From Outer Space. A good time will be had by all, despite the realization that I've spent $25 on two tickets to see the worst movie ever made.
But it doesn't stop there. Sunday I'll be heading out for yet another flick, this time to see Quentin Tarantino's latest, Inglourious Basterds. I hope it's good. I've managed to avoid just about everything involving this movie... no trailers, no soundtrack listings... total blackout. I am debating on whether or not to watch the original before or after...
Then on September 4th, Mike Judge's latest "why did they fund his movie if they're just going to bury it like all the rest" flick Extract opens in theaters. Well maybe. If it plays on more than 16 screens and actually comes to my town, I'm going that weekend.
That's enough moviegoing to last me a full year. So let's move on. September 5th is the start of the college football season, where I'll be watching my Georgia Bulldogs lose their first game to Oklahoma State. Then September 13th is the start of the NFL season, where I'll watch my Jaguars lose to the Colts. Thankfully I'm a self-admitted fair-weather fan, and so I won't be forced to endure either team's entire season.
And October is just around the corner, where it seems I'll be revisiting my 31 Horror Movies in 31 Days series on YouTube. It caused me a great deal of stress last year, but people seemed to like it and I have a much better way to do it this year, so it's a go. Plus I have a flashy new intro sequence... gotta show that off.
Last, but definitely not least, comes the release of The Beatles: Rock Band (squeeeeee!) on September 9th. I seriously cannot remember the last time I was this excited about the release of any game, except maybe Pac-Man on the Atari 2600. I think this'll turn out a little better than that did. So when I'm not sleeping, working, making videos, watching movies to make videos about, going to the theater, or losing years off my life by watching bad football, I'll be rocking out with the greatest band of all time.
