SF33 Live 2

    'In the Shadow of the Moon' documentary still on as we arrive back from a dinner break. We left the marathon after 'The Last Mimzy', since the timing was good and we were OK with missing the Apollo documentary. We had a delicious meal at Diva's Indian Bistro here in Davis Square, Somerville, MA.

    When you are seeing some of these films in a theatre with a group of like minded people, you need to be prepared to miss some lines, as the crowd picks up on laughs et al that more mixed crowds don't. Although this documentary on the Apollo program has the theatre pretty quiet. I am absolutely a child of the moon missions, have a couple official space pens, like Tang and wish I could still get Space Food Sticks. Applause now for Neil Armstrong saying 'That's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind'.

    One film we saw, 'King Dinosaur', was a hoot with this crowd. It was an old 50s era film that was so bad by today's standards, that it had a comic affect with this crowd. It wouldn't have been nearly as enjoyable elsewhere. Hopefully I'll have more later, but don't stay up. :-)

We were discussing just this topic on the SF Marathon message board:

Wow, why didn't I think of that. you can find most anything on the web today. Hmmm might even be able to find some original Space Food Sticks on eBay. :-) Now, which flavor to get? Thanks for the pointer. I should have some by next year's 'Thon.
