|11:24 am - Afternoon Question Cavalcade|
Ok, here's another round. Boy oh boy is there a queue!
hyperina: This may sound cliche but there was a wonderful sunset a few nights ago I watched from my third-floor deck. It was one of those sunsets that turns the entire world pink for a while, and the sun underlit the clouds in a very dramatic sort of way, plus the view from the deck gives the biggest sky view I've seen in Somerville. It was just very very enjoyable to watch.
annilita: It's the dopey janitor Stanley Spadowski, as played by Michael Richards, from Weird Al Yankovic's movie UHF.
antiquated_tory: I think it has to be Droopy. There's just something about a low-key, deadpan dog who exists in an insane Tex Avery maelstrom, surrounded by wolves and Irish bulldogs named Spike and red-hot redheads and extremely exaggerated facial takes. "Y'know what..." Yeah, I think it's Droopy.
betweenstations: Fresh mozzarella. One basil leaf lightly placed on top and a tomato sitting nearby to just whisper "hey... tomato" at it. Yeah. That's the stuff.
androidqueen: No, but I would have! Damn. I do want to go see Frank Ferrante's "Groucho" review which plays next week at the Majestic. Anybody know where I can get cheap tickets?
karyn: With a little bit of this and a little bit of that and a hefty supply of antacid.
hemlock_martini: As of 12/03, 177. I don't think I rode any new ones this year, which is a bit of a shame but that's how the world works sometimes.
aussie_nyc: I know I used a variant on this in a previous melancholy post, but yes: Next year, in Pittsfield. How about Keyspan Park too?
cheezdanish: Over easy. Or scrambled. Or Benedict. Bismarck.
lexinatrix: Wooden, with as much airtime as possible. A nice Intamin hypercoaster made of steel will do, too.
weds: WHAT WOULD THIS FAIR CITY BE WITHOUT BACON? YES, I HAVE SUCH INFORMATION.
oakenguy: I've already played it; Teddy in Arsenic & Old Lace. I'd do it again, too, in a heartbeat. Failing that, I could brush up my Marx and be one of the brothers in a stage revival of Animal Crackers or Cocoanuts. I'm not picky.
captain_slinky: I'm trying to do this without consulting IMDB, but -- wasn't it one of the Coreys?
lordfeepness: Like Prince trying to tell Vanity a secret while Morris Day listens in.
grumqa: I've always been partial to Williams tables. Some of my all-time favorites are Williams tables, so, uh, Williams.
Wow. This project is more complicated than I thought! More soon.
Yes yes yes. You will like Keyspan.
Not to unfairly add to your question-answering load, but I wanted to ask if you've ever ridden the Screaming Eagle in Six Flags Over
Flushing Mid-America; my hometown theme park. It's a classic wooden coaster with lots of hang time, and during Fright Nights they turn the coaster lights off after dark. It's pretty intense.
The Mine Train and Batman are excellent as well. Not so much the Ninja and The Boss coasters; but that's just me.
I've never been to St Louis for the purpose of riding coasters. I hear they may be doing some retrack work on the Boss during the off-season, though, and I'd love to see how that goes.

re: lordfeepness response - wasn't that appollonia, not vanity, in purple rain? or are you thinking of a different movie?
I wasn't going for a specific movie, per se, I guess. More like a pastiche, if you will.
Mmm, pastiche with icing.
