It's getting closer to the big day! :D
It's getting closer to the big day! :D
I hit Rob Zombie's Great American Nightmare on Saturday... it was aiiight. Thankfully I got hooked up with comped VIP status through a friend which helped. The first fright of the evening was getting hit with $10 parking upon entering the Fairground lot laugh: The tram to the GAN area was shared with people going to Oktoberfest which was located directly adjacent, and seeing the condition of those people goinmg in compared to when they were leaving after midnight was added entertainment.
There really isn't a WHOLE lot to it... if not for the killer punk lineup I literally could've been in and out of there in an hour. There are the mazes themselves, the concert hall, "Bloody Blvd" which was a row of vendors, food/beer), props, characters and a carousel with free rides, a tent that features appearances/signings each night ("Cryptkeeper" John Kassir was there Saturday), a little outdoor "theater" showing classic horror flicks.
OK, the mazes. There are three in total and you hit them back-to-back-to-back, athough if you want to bypass any of them to enter one a second time that option is available but not advertised. Although I had VIP which got me front of line, I noticed that even when the lines backed up at peak hours they were never too bad as GAN implemented a "chute" method of filtering the main line into separate "chutes" of 6-8 which helped expedite things.
First up is Lords Of Salem, although the actual maze itself has nothing to do with the film. The exterior is great looking, once inside a black sack is placed on your head and you are forced to navigate through with no sight. Cool concept, but it could've been executed WAY better. Kind of a disappointment. I bypassed the opportunity to go in a second time.
Next up is the El Superbeasto maze, and this one was a blast right from the entrance - I'll leave that as a suprise laugh: 3D glasses are provided and offer some cool visual perspective. This maze is definitely not scary, but is fun. Definitely did this one a second time.
Last but not least is the "main attraction" and the longest maze, influenced by Captain Spaulding/House of 100 Corpses but more a homage to infamous serial killers. This one is where ALL the gore and shock value is found. Prior to entering you are asked if you have a probelem being touched, if not you get a sloppy, "bloody" X on your forehead. This maze is different than Zombie's recent Universal mazes so at least you won't feel like you doing something all over again. This one warrented a second walk through.
The concert hall is spacious, although the stage itself will be considered intimate when Zombie tries to cram his set up there. Bands played until midnight on Saturday.
Alcohol is abundant, so if you want to get your party on GAN will be happy to oblige.
Gay Stereotype Superman Dooms Bill And Ted's Hallowe'en Show - Bleeding Cool Comic Book, Movies and TV News and Rumors
The focus of their ire was the portrayal of Superman, who was “turned gay” by being sprinkled with “fairy dust” before turning into a string of gay stereotypes played for laughs. Vice.com reported;
After becoming gay, Superman’s voice and posture changes. His lips purse, his toes point inward, and his wrists become limp. His new voice sounds like a homophobic uncle doing a drunken impression of Richard Simmons, complete with lisps and frequent use of the word “faaaaaaabulous!”
Bill and Ted, understandably, are bummed. Their initial excitement at having Superman with them on their quest turns to disappointment as, obviously, now that Superman is gay, he is not going to be of any use to them. “Who could possibly make a worse Superman?” asks Bill. “Ben Affleck?” responds Ted.
Superman also rips off his shirt. Because gay dudes hate shirts almost as much as they hate pussy (which is to say, A LOT).
Then, because Superman is now gay, he minces over to Bill and Ted, blows kisses at them, and slaps Ted on the ass. As he does this, Bill and Ted say “awwww dude!” with disgusted voices.
After a few more attempts at molesting Bill and Ted, Superman ends up aboard the Starship Enterprise, where he runs into Superman villain General Zod.
General Zod tells Superman to get on his knees. Because Superman is now gay, he assumes this is an invitation to give Zod oral sex. “Finally!” he squeals.
Also aboard the Starship Enterprise, the gang runs into George Takei. Because George Takei is gay too, he and Superman share an instant mutual attraction. “Who’s your friend?” asks George, in the same lisping, gay-minstrel voice that Superman uses.
Before Bill and/or Ted can answer, Superman interrupts by yelling “Hey daddy!” to George. (If you’re not homosexual, “Hey daddy!” is a mating call used by younger gays to initiate sex with older gays.)
George and Superman disappear to have sex. “Time to boldly go where no man has gone before!” says George, as they exit the stage.
And now… no more. But, to be fair, it doesn;t sound like you were missing much.
Have any of you peeps started making A Halloween playlist?
I am working on it.
Let's just say that Screamin' Jay Hawkings will be involved. ;)
