RexTalionis: In hindsight, that movie sucked.
LineNoise: RexTalionis: In hindsight, that movie sucked.Unless you were a fat person looking to take off your clothes.
evilmrsock: I still think I like Shock Treatment better. It's a shame that movie is overshadowed the way it is.
abfalter: So here is my Rocky Horror story.I already knew all of the songs before I ever went to the show because my mom (a child of the 60's and let's just leave it at that) had the albumn and I would play it a lot when I was a teenager. She would not take me to actually see the movie so when I turned 18 I decided to go see it one night.I called my buddy, one of the nerdiest kids I know --who actually wore those thick black glasses --and asked him what he was doing at midnight. He said nothing, and so I said "We're going to a movie. I'll pick you up". So we went. He had no idea what movie we were going to see.This was in the Prudential Town Center outside of Detroit about 25-30 years ago. They had a pretty active crowd. Tons of rice and such being thrown around, the whole nine yards. A good show, unlike some of the tamer ones I have been to since.So we watched the movie and my friend had never seen anything like it before in his life. We had a blast and hung out after the show at a White Castles (which became a post show tradition) since it was the only thing open.We ended up going over 100 times after that.Somewhere around the 20th time my mom brought me home a pair of tiny gold lame' shorts that she found in a thrift shop. I bought some used hightop shoes and spraypainted them gold. The theater said you had to wear a shirt, but an ACE bandage was good enough for them and so I started showing up dressed as Rocky. (I had enough of a body at that point to pull off Rocky. Today, not so much....)We went every Friday and Saturday night as regulars, bringing along an even increasing amount of friends. I even managed to find a "groupie" my friend nicknamed "plastic fark doll" who could do some amazing things. The time she handcuffed me to a steering wheel in a church parking lot at 3:00am is a different story...One day a friend bought an entire shopping bag of rice, opened it up in the front row, and declared war on the audience before the movie had ...
MyKingdomForYourHorse: Insight and Rocky Horror Picture do not belong in the same sentence together.
Mrbogey: I always took it as the film equivilant of a drug trip. Not much to explain. It is whatever your experience makes of it. Usually fun if you're in the right frame of mind but god awful if not.
Dr Dreidel: I say that life is an illusion.
verbaltoxin: We usually pop it in around Halloween or so. It's become pretty standard viewing for that time of year, along with the original Halloween by John Carpenter.
NeoBad: It was a great movieDance to the time warp again......Dance to the time warp again.......Just a jump to the left.....and a jump to the riiiiiiggghhhhtPut your hands on your hips...........Now I hope you all can't get that song out of your heads all day long pppffffttttt
Oscar_Madisons_cleaning_lady: Happy birthday to you, happy birthday to you, happy birthday, dear Rocky...
abfalter: RexTalionis: In hindsight, that movie sucked.If you were watching the movie you lost the point. The fun was watching the audience goofing off reacting to a barely-watched movie.
karnal: Lost my virginity in the back row of the local Bijou Theatre to the Floor Show scene./Woo!
karnal: always had a thing for Columbia[thumbs2.modthesims.info image 300x515]
unchellmatt: It's astounding.
Snort: There is a statue to Rocky in Philly.There is a statue to Riff Raff in Hamilton, NZ
someonelse: unchellmatt: It's astounding.Time is fleeting.
Surly U. Jest: someonelse: unchellmatt: It's astounding.Time is fleeting.Madness . . . takes it's toll
PanicMan: That's the whole point. Except for Tim Curry. He was fantastic. The audience participation is RiffTrax before there was RiffTrax. And each theater does it a little different. Give it a try.
Bondith: Surly U. Jest: someonelse: unchellmatt: It's astounding.Time is fleeting.Madness . . . takes it's tollPlease have exact change.
Hagenhatesyouall: karnal: always had a thing for Columbia[thumbs2.modthesims.info image 300x515]Magenta always pulled me in with her long red hair, red lips, and quasi-scary/crazy sex appeal.Lick those lips baby...
Oscar_Madisons_cleaning_lady: All she could say was, "Oh...You're one of those."
There I Was: My CSB (or not):First saw the movie in 1977 or 78 in a theater in Highland Park, a Dallas suburb. A woman I was seeing took me--I'd never heard of Rocky Horror Picture Show. Just before the movie started, some fat dude walked onstage and the crowd went nuts. I asked my date who the guy was and why everyone was screaming...she told me I'd figure it out. Movie starts and a few scenes in I realized that the fat guy was Meat Loaf. Turned out he grew up in Dallas and was visiting friends in the area.Only saw the movie one other time, on acid in Chico, CA, in 1980. That certainly livened it up./what's a radio picture?//egads, I am one old motherfarker
MrJesus: Surly U. Jest: someonelse: unchellmatt: It's astounding.Time is fleeting.Madness . . . takes it's tollBut listen closely..
23FPB23: I remember when the movie came out on video. I wondered "why?". I mean, where's the fun in just sitting around at home watching it?
Tenga: Little known fact: the guy that played Riff Raff, Richard O'Brien, voices the role of Phineas and Ferbs dad.
MyKingdomForYourHorse: Mrbogey: I always took it as the film equivilant of a drug trip. Not much to explain. It is whatever your experience makes of it. Usually fun if you're in the right frame of mind but god awful if not.A more apt analogy could not be found. It's a lot like an acid trip. If you're ready and go with the fark flow, its an experience you won't forget. If you are not ready for it, its an experience you want to forget.

It was as unreal as you might expect.
quickdraw: I never liked the audience participation stuff. I find it annoying.
natas6.0: used to be fun going to watch in berkeley at midnight.The movie is horrible, but on a big screen.. with audience participation-epic
abfalter: So here is my Rocky Horror story.
abfalter: Dr Dreidel: I say that life is an illusion.Agrees:
Mr. Cat Poop: Tenga: Little known fact: the guy that played Riff Raff, Richard O'Brien, voices the role of Phineas and Ferbs dad.And Malcolm McDowell plays one of the granddads.
carrion_luggage: RexTalionis: In hindsight, that movie sucked.They didn't make it -- FOR YOU!!!
UNC_Samurai: I went more than a few times in college (my roommate was Rocky in the cast). The Rialto let you get away with just about anything. JUST about.The only callback the production manager ever got upset about was one night during Frank's "Dream it":Whatever happened to Faye Wray? That delicate, satin draped frame. As it clung to her thigh.LIKE A HOMESICK ABORTION!How I started to cry...YOU'D CRY TOO IF YOU HAD A HOMESICK ABORTION STUCK TO YOUR LEG!
ChubbyTiger: Your mission is a failure.
The Muthaship: Now overreact, Riff!
Novart: lol I remember when people pretended to like this movie back in high school.
Bondith: Novart: lol I remember when people pretended to like this movie back in high school.We watched it on a band trip once.
John Buck 41: Bondith: Novart: lol I remember when people pretended to like this movie back in high school.We watched it on a band trip once.That one time? At band camp?
Austinoftx: Shouting out to Decadence and the gang at the Majestic Theatre (now a night club) in Madison, WI circa 1987-88! If you want to get in touch with me rhpsfans at fondoo netFun Fact: The guy wearing glasses in the top left of the first photo with his arms spread (Joel) was one of the Heaven's Gate cult suicides. One of those pics you've seen, of bodies wearing Nike sneakers, is him.[fondoo.net image 640x478][fondoo.net image 640x444][fondoo.net image 640x512][fondoo.net image 640x534][fondoo.net image 640x478][img580.imageshack.us image 800x1232]
