There’s a light in the darkness of everyone’s night.

Or maybe not.

Sure, The Rocky Horror Picture Show still screens at midnight on Saturday. But is it important in the face of DVD and the ‘net?

I remember that the Rocky Horror Picture Show used to be important, and a great excuse to get your freak on and out, with charming underclothes.

Has the ‘net undermined the communal Saturday night geek fest?

About Jim Carruthers

  • Al Barger

    Rocky Horror was already pretty well played out by the time the www was taking off, let alone DVDs. They delayed putting it out on VHS for years while they were milking it.

    Rocky Horror was good communal fun for a few years, but everything must give way eventually. These kids today, they wouldn’t understand…

    And this gives me the image of Al rolling around his neighbourhood in his wheelchair in a bustier and fishnet stockings yelling “you damn kids”.

  • Al Barger

    Naw, I’d have been Eddie if I had been dedicated enough to dress up- and you KNOW he was a no-good kid.

    c’mon al, everybody knows you’d be riff-raff and either the diva or maybe sandra’d be magenta

  • boomcrashbaby

    I’m betting I’m probably the only one here who’d like to be Frankenfurter. I wouldn’t mind being Rocky either, but I’d be miscast.

  • Al Barger

    So Saleski- You think I as Kentuckian Riff Raff would commit incestuous acts with sister Diva Magenta? That’s just wrong. It would be against all the laws of nature…

    I just walked by the old 8th street play house the other night. It’s a video store now and I am not sure they even carry rocky horror… it may have been played out at some point, but what isn’t. It was something that was rediscovered by a new group of kids every year and it felt great when you did “find” this thing happening in a theater at midnight on saturdays. It was an event to attend and good lord was it fun.

    The songs are alive, anyhow.

    Before I met my sister-in-law, I saw her photo, in costume for a Rocky Horror nite. It was very hard not to laugh at her when I finally met her.

    I’m not sure which character I’d go for, but probably not the Narrator — asshole!
