Topic: What will Future Ghosts be like?

 

 

  • There’s a reference to Oktober being “cozy.” That’s an inside joke to everyone on the panel because Oktober was obsessed with a Japanese band called “Malice Mizer,” especially the bass guitarist who went by the name Közi.

 

  • There is a discussion about what we expect of ghostly apparitions to look like know. Luke states that the normal description is “old timey people” to which Victoria brings up the increased hipster population bring “old timey” stuff back into some semblance of popularity, making it difficult to tell ghost from hipster.

 

  • Oktober talks about the ghost that has been seen in her Victorian era house. People have described it not as an “old timey” ghost, but more as a person from the 1960’s. Nabbit talks about how you don’t see a lot of ghosts in bell bottoms and platform shoes.

 

  • The panel talks about whether it is our minds telling us what we expect to see versus whether it is really there. Oktober cites one of her old jobs at a hotel designed to look Victorian, but was actually build much later. People still claim to see “old timey” ghosts because they expect to see them in those surroundings.

 

 

 

  • The panel talks about how ghosts may spend their after life. Do they expend their energy leaving creepy hand prints (as talked about by Victoria) or do they learn to flip bottle caps?

 

  • And what about Sexy Ghosts? There’s brief talk about whether ghosts appear as themselves in their prime…or how they died….but no one really knows.

Topic: The Rocky Horror Picture Show

 

 

  • Nabbit rants a bit about how this movie has kept its weirdness and shock value despite the fact that it is 40 years old. Oktober points out that the visual concepts were already on the edge of the culture by citing David Bowie and Ziggy Stardust.

 

 

  • The music was a big part of the attraction that is the Rocky Horror Picture Show. We went around the table to talk about our favorite songs. Nabbit was a fan of the dance-able “The Time Warp.” Luke likes “Sweet Transvestite” for the shock value, but also he loves the little business and timing in “Dammit Janet.” Oktober likes “Over at the Frankenstein Place” because her grand mother liked that one the most (and that’s a story in its own right). Victoria enjoys the energy of “Hot Patootie” and the physical stylings of Meatloaf. Braydon talks about the Floor Show (which actually involves several songs) and Oktober loves the scene where RiffRaff and Magenta bust in.

 

  • There is some brief discussion about the sequel (!!!) called Shock Treatment. Everyone gets it in their head that it will be the next movie night…with costumes.

 

  • There’s some talk about Tim Curry’s current condition (he suffered a stroke in 2012) and his appearance in the 2016 remake.

 

  • The panel is lead down the path of understanding all the rules of a showing of The Rocky Horror Picture Show by our two experts Victoria and Braydon. We learn about the proper way to throw toast and how to yell at characters on the screen.
