Sorry about yesterday, I wasn’t able to get on the site before work. Hosting issues, I guess. Then I went out right after work to watch the rest of the Cubs match against the Cards. We won, but those last two innings were nerve wracking. Still, it’s on to the NL championship round, and after taking three in a row from the Cards, well, there’s not reason we can’t beat the Dodgers or Mets.
Back to T-Fest. We watched Robot Monster and King Kong Escapes, but those beasties have all been featured here already. However, in its tenth year T-Fest has officially bifurcated, between those who like to socialize and yack during the event, and those of us social misfits who just watch the movies. Because of this, I think (and with Kirk Draut again doing yeoman’s work on the grill, cooking delicious meats for everyone to eat), the movie people just grabbed plates of food and immediately returned to our seats. Because of this, instead or running overlong and cancelling a film–which as happened more than once–we actually got well ahead of schedule. So Sandy through on Harbinger Down, a Kickstarter film both he and I (in my more well-funded days) had chipped in on. It’s basically a riff on The Thing, but a quite good one, and it featured nearly 100% practical effects and the wonderful Lance Henriksen. Galaxy Jane and I were weirded out by how negative some people are towards the film, which is actually quite good. Check it out.
