if.... you're interested....


if.... you're free next Monday and if.... you want to discuss a film and if.... sorry. Next Monday, September 14th, Pat Piper of Lazy Eye Theatre will be hosting Toerifc Nine which is nothing like Ice-nine but very much like a film discussion, this time centered around Lindsay Anderson's classic if...., from 1968, a film I've seen many times over. Please go to Netflix or your local video outlet to reserve your copy now. I've checked both Amazon video on demand and i-tunes and it's a no-go. I'm afraid you've got to get the DVD so do it before the weekend and then join us for another rousing discussion on Monday. See you there.

I don't get it, why do you keep saying 'if' and then add an ellipsis?

You're being really obscure here, Greg.

Greg said...

if.... I told you you wouldn't believe it. Or maybe you would but I'm not taking any chances.

Ryan Kelly said...

No, dude, I believe pretty much anything.

Greg said...

I'm still not telling you.

Ryan Kelly said...

Psh, whatever, I already know anyway. So it's no skin off my nose.

Krauthammer said...

I should actually be participating in this one! Yay for me!

Peter Nellhaus said...

Is it true you came up with this current banner through the process of elimination?

Greg said...

Krauthammer, that would be great! I hope to see you there, if.... you can make it. Hahahaha... sorry.

Greg said...

Peter, I usually flush four or five caption ideas down the toilet before I finally settle on the one I like.

Ryan Kelly said...

Greg, enough of these shitty jokes.

Greg said...

Oh stop being such a pisser.

bill r. said...

I come here for a few minutes of relaxation after a busy morning, and what do I get? Poop jokes. Unbelievable.

I picked this up during B&N's 50% off Criterion sale, and watched it shortly thereafter, so I may not watch the whole thing again, I don't know. But I'll be there!

Ryan Kelly said...

Bill, I know, Greg's toilet humor really pisses me off as well.

GET IT?!! PISSES ME OFF!!! LIKE AS IN URINE!

bill r. said...

Yeah, no, I get it, Ryan. Thanks.

Ryan Kelly said...

Did you just say "Yeah, no"? Who says "Yeah, no" these days?

Fox said...

Greg-

Is this one of those banners when you sneak in a picture of yourself without telling us?

Ryan Kelly said...

But which one is Greg?

bill r. said...

Ryan, I write like people talk.

Greg said...

Actually I only photoshopped part of me in there. The saggy wrinkled boobs? Those are mine. I'm quite proud of them.

Marilyn said...

My sagging, wrinkled boobs look better than yours. You should get a collagen-based skin cream for that.

Greg said...

I was at the drugstore doing just that. I look twenty years younger now. Thanks!

bill r. said...

I don't like this thread.

Greg said...

Since Piper hasn't even shown up to shower me with gratitude for so graciously putting up this reminder, I don't like it either.

Piper... what a jerk.

Marilyn said...

Piper seems to have lost his taste for blogging. He doesn't even do his Top 5 Tuesdays anymore. Do you think he even remembers he's hosting this event?

Greg said...

I'm certainly blogging less but it has more to do with how my days are spent now, not being at a regular job anymore but trying to get one. Also, I've been writing an extremely long post for a few days now. Pat did put up a reminder himself last week so he definitely remembers.

BLH said...

I was so distracted when I saw your banner I knocked almost an entire deck of cards onto the floor with the side of my hand. I must have dropped at least three deuces.

Greg said...

I'd forgotten I'd even put it up. I was holding some freshly baked bread today when I returned to the site and, shocked by the banner, pinched that loaf pretty hard.

BLH said...

You bake your own bread? That's cool!
I'd love to have a loaf or two of my own to pinch; but, as it is, things are a little backed up right now. It's hard to find the time.

I don't even know if I should bother picking up all these cards off the floor. My place is already a bit of a dump.

Greg said...

Oh poop, sorry to hear that.

bill r. said...

When I saw that banner, I shit all over my apartment.

Greg said...

you know what's really weird? I have a new post up! Geez.

PIPER said...

Whoah. What's with all this chitty chat? Save your energy for Lazy Eye Theatre. You guys are all going to be commented out and then there's going to be nothing.

Seriously, get some Gatorade and get at least 8 hours both nights this weekend.

Greg said...

I'm having a cocaine party Sunday night into Monday morning. Around 10 a.m. I'll crash. Sorry, hope that's not a problem.
