Perhaps the greatest message ever texted [Mar. 20th, 2008|04:25 pm]
Lindsey Kuper

From my sister, Maya leadsynth, to me:

Did someone interview your roomie paul for a movie about bike porn? Because i'm watching it.

There are approximately ten people in the world who will understand, and approximately 6.6 billion who won't. If you aren't one of the ten: I'm sorry.

Phil says he can probably stop by Fort Collins on Thursday April 3rd, but he'd need someone to secure a venue and promote it. Interested?

Apparently in Chicago, a few hundred people showed up, but in Minneapolis, it was less than 30.

I can't secure a venue, but i can recommend contacting http://lyriccinemacafe.com , the only independent movie theatre in town (i think).
As for promoting, I'm teetering on the side of no, one reason being that I haven't actually seen the entire film, only 3 or 4 of the shorts. But, I'll have to think on that some more.

OK, here's what I've come up with...
If you guys can secure the venue (if you need more suggestions let me know), we (being Beth, Kyle and myself) will flier the town and use whatever other resources we can come up with.
Workable? If not, we can try for a later date, in maybe Boulder, they're a little more likely to have a good crowd there I'd think.

PR0N!1! of BIKE!>!?!?

The Chicago crowd (of 500+ people, I'm estimating!) was tipsy and noisy and distracted, and they were ESPECIALLY tipsy and noisy and distracted during Paul's part of the movie, because, let's face it, it wasn't as visually stimulating as some of the other parts of the movie, and this IS after all the MTV generation we're talking about.

The one-single-shot thing and the black-and-white thing and the bookcase were totally funny artistic choices that made the movie look scholarly and otherwise out of place among "porn." However, this subtle humor was lost on Chicago. In fact, the crowd was SO rude during this particular part of the movie that the projectionist actually STOPPED the movie and YELLED at everyone to STFU (which they did, for like 30 seconds) and then REWOUND the movie to the beginning of Paul's thing and played it ALL OVER AGAIN.

Very few people were paying much attention to what was happening on the screen. Except for me. I was glued to the screen all "I think that's Paul! Yes, yes; it's totally Paul! Dude! Hey, I know that guy! Paul!!"

Interesting. At other screenings (including some pretty rowdy ones) that one was one of the big hits...

Conjecture: (Current or former) projectionists are pretty rad people in general. I mean, you've got eliciel, indy1725, jes5199 -- how much more evidence does one need?
