Black Snake Moan
Monday 5 March 2007

Any movie that involves Samuel L. Jackson chaining women to the radiator in his living room is destined to be good and Black Snake Moan did not disappoint. The lot of us went to see the movie on 5 March following a hearty lunch of Cici's all-you-can-eat pizza buffet. The food was tasty, the movie was excellent, and dozens of tiny bouncy balls permeated the day.

Afterwards we headed to the Malcolm's for a series of games that led to the creation of the great idea of 2007: the Dark Lord of Definitions himself, Lord Skorkle.

Attendees: Ian Malcolm, James Malcolm, Kim Powalowski, Laura Mayfield, Charles Meyer, Paul Arquette, Josh Gulch, Dan Norton, and Mike Gillespie


Cici's is in what used to be Josh's favorite hobby shop, something that bothered Josh a bit Kim fusses with her camera in Cici's while Ian chats over the table to either Mike or Charles.

He just kept chugging it was crazy Dan gets his drink on like nobody is watching.

The pie was too tasty for decent manners There was this apple pie sort of dessert with like caramel on it, and holy cow it was just delicious.

God I want to make a joke about bouncy balls but I won't The bouncy balls begin to accumulate. There will be many more to follow.

He pressed the wrong button trying to get the timer to work, changing the size of all photos that followed, so that's why there's a slight decline in quality Josh is always underfoot as he tries out the camera's self-timer.

All actin' like we own the place We got to the theater pretty early and had time to mess around. The theater was nearly empty except for a couple of people behind us.

It's like a sixth sense but without that kid to tell him what's going on Charles gets a sparkle in his eye whenever a movie is about to play. He knows.

Sucks to be those losers Laura, James, and Mike pulled the short straws and had to sit to the left of Ian. Everyone else got the prime positions to his right.

Blindfolded and with one hand at that Josh is slightly tough but Bruce Willis could crack him over his knee.

Vote Mike for City Treasurer Mike is feelin' all right and has the support of the people on his side.

Hey, you try to look suave while holding a camera at arm's length in front of you.

We all have our quirks; we all have our wounds Ian greets people to his house by shooting them. It's sort of his thing.

You can see how much fun we were having It's Trivial Pursuit: Millennium Edition! A game so hard that nobody knew any of the questions. It was terribly frustrating.

We finally gave up after twenty minutes when James got the first question right with a lucky guess. We then turned to Balderdash.

You're going to burn and I'm going to be there when you do.  Is that sweat I see?  Are you sweating because it's hot in here or BECAUSE YOU KILLED THAT LITTLE GIRL YOU SICKO? Charles grills Paul over his whereabouts on the night of the murder. Paul begins to buckle under the pressure.

A moment later Charles kicked Paul's chair out from underneath him.

BURN THEM ALL JAMES I KNOW WHAT IS BEST FOR YOU TRUST ME While Laura shuffles through Balderdash sheets, James falls under the control of his blue bouncy ball.

We shed blood over Balderdash Ian balks at a response in this heated game of Balderdash.

And this is why Dan should be the next president of Ireland Dan takes a phone call. Reportedly it was Prime Minister Tony Blair on the line.

He's actually a very capable doctor Josh handles his turn at Balderdash as if he were performing surgery on a loved one: with spastic motions and desperate cries for people to be quiet because he can't think.

Why does it always come down to this?

Every single day With too many players and a lack of pieces, a ninja had to fight a fancy Chinese button for board superiority.

Kyphorrhinos sees you always Kyphorrhinos is Skorkle's right hand man, army commander, and vice-presidential candidate.

Nobody has ever seen Kyphorrhinos.

Tawls is not subdued by a Milkbone Taws is something like Cerberus, only far, far worse. James makes this clear to us.

Let this terrible image lull you to sleep at night Laura has some pretty suspect methods of monkey presentation. Ian's screeching helped.

Though every other question was about the Spice Girls After Balderdash we attempted a game of Trivial Pursuit: 1990s Edition. This one was easier and we were actually guessing correctly. Charles has apparently done something good.

These games bring us all so much joy and love This must have been the point in the game where Dan's team was ahead of James'.

This is a metaphor for something
I don't know what Josh lost his bouncy ball. Ian had threatened to take it away, but now it was actually missing.
