I'm starting to get geeked up for Saturday, like a much-awaited vacation! 
Donna, I just read the AVClub post, Manos sounds like a veritable treat: 32 seconds at a time?!?!  only two voices!?!?!  So many movies to make, so little tension in the spring...
My stomach is already starting to cramp just thinking about laughing.
We will endeavor to bring cake and perhaps fruit salad.
Brian Regan!  Brian Regan!  Brian Regan!  (stirrings of a grass roots campaign to get my favorite comedian on Saturday's list.)

Q:  Which movie, about 20 minutes into it, prompted my six year old daughter to
climb up on my lap, grab me by the shoulders, shake me, and ask, "Mommy, what
were you thinking?  Why did you buy this DVD?"

A:  Manos:  The Hands of Fate

"Manos: The Hands of Fate (1966) is an American horror film written, directed,
produced by, and starring Harold P. Warren. It is widely recognized to be one of
the worst films ever made. In 1993, television comedy series Mystery Science
Theater 3000 (MST3K), a show based on the premise of mocking B movies, featured
Manos: The Hands of Fate, giving the film cult status." --Wikipedia

"The Master would not approve, if you did not attend." --Torgo
