If you were an evil space comet, what would you use to take over the world and destroy humanity? And -- perhaps most importantly -- what music would you play while doing it?
Stephen King's answer to the above questions:
Good answer Mr. King. Good answer.
This was King's first and I'm assuming last directorial endeavor *snifle* based on his short story Trucks.
Get ready for MAXIMUM CARNAGE in a film that dares to ask the question:
Did people make trucks or did trucks make people?
It will like totally make sense once you watch the movie. Trust me.
More details as the date encroaches upon us like a Six-Wheeler!!!
Julian picks such excellent films (so blame him, not me) that I'm going to take a suggestion he made about serving trucker food this night. When deciding which of the many, ehem, delightful dishes a trucker relies on, I concluded that there's no meal more suitable for a trucker than chicken-fried steak w/ mashed potatoes & gravy (OK, maybe there is, but my opinion is biased by what I know how to make & what I'm willing to eat). And, obviously, we have to have pie for dessert (but I'll decide later which flavor--does anyone want to influence my opinion about what it should be?)
The usual schmoozing & (optional) boozing starts at 7p, the movie starts about 8p, and I'll email my address to attendees ~11p Thursday night.
Diner opens at 7p and will serve chicken-fried steak w/ mashed potatoes & gravy, along with mac & cheese. A second helping of mac & cheese will be served up at 8p in movie form. Apple pie will follow, and no, you may not have your dessert until you've cleaned every bit of movie off your plate.
If you want to drink something besides water straight from the tap, bring your own beverage, preferably in a great enough volume to share (red wine, high-quality beer, and sparkling water are usually the most appreciated additions to the night). If you like your beverage chilled, please bring it that way--my ice maker does not work & I've no room in my freezer for ice trays.
I'll post a comment Thursday night, after I've emailed my address to attendees.
