Leggo my Legolas

ACK! I just took a spin downtown after finding out that the theater here in town was going to show Return of the King here tonight at midnight. I had to see if there was a line. There are people with lawnchairs, out in the cold, lined up clear around the block, for a movie on a Tuesday night, at midnight, one and a half hours before showtime. Oh come on! Okay, it IS Lord of the Rings but really now, IT'S STILL JUST A MOVIE, PEOPLE. GET LIVES!

Heck, the clincher is that a bunch of them were there stag, even, and not even junior high school age, but guys old enough to have lives. I mean really, I could kind of see the romance in camping out for a movie if you and your date are really Lord of the Rings fantatics. You could be standing there, with your geeky girlfriend, discussing the movie, arm in arm, keeping warm, talking, cooing and billing, etc. It could be fun, in that beautifully silly romantic kind of way. She could be declaring you her personal Kwisatz Haderach and herself your Bene Gesserit whoopie wench for life for scoring her the ticket that will allow her to scope out Orlando Bloom before any of her girlfriends get the chance, but to stand there in the cold for two hours or more freezing your nads off alone, just just for boasting rights over other geeky nerds so that you can tell them that you got to see it first, at midnight, well, come on, get a life! I'm telling you, it's got to be a good night to own a theater.

Conan O'Brien's Triumph at the Herd of Nerds video perfectly illustrates that of which I speak. Oh THANK YOU morganaus, for alerting me to this gem! Oh! My sides hurt!
