Blue Drank

So, yesterday I was working on an upcoming post for THE ROOM Week (I know, I know, it’s not until May and you’re already sick of me talking about it) and I was getting all crazy Virgo about some minor details that I couldn’t figure out…so I turned to Bwana for some help.

I shot him a quick email since I was sure he must be some sort of expert on the details in question…I eventually figured it out on my own (with some help from The Wife) and emailed Bwana again to share the good news.

When he emailed me back he expressed his approval and admiration of my findings and then he hit me up with a (non THE ROOM) question of his own for me!

Yum, it's produced by a female bantha’s mammary glands!

Yum, it's produced by a female bantha’s mammary glands!

Hey, what do you think that blue stuff that Aunt Beru gave to Luke to drink when he was whining about going to get the power converters was?

Hmmmmm…an interesting question…I was pretty sure Bwana was in no way making fun of me or “busting my balls” as the (Italian) kids say…so I hit the internets to find out just what in the Hell was in that future flask!

A few key strokes later and I ended up on Wookieepedia! And sure as shit there was an entry for Blue Milk!

It says: “Blue milk, sometimes known as Bantha milk[1] was a blue-colored liquid produced by a female bantha’s mammary glands. It could be found on most planets across the galaxy. The milk was well known for being very rich and refreshing, its opaque coloring suggesting that it was also sweet. The milk was also used to make a variety of yogurt, ice cream, and cheese.

There’s even a commercial for it:

So, there you go, Bwana! If you (or any of you other Awesomeness readers) think of any other burning questions I can answer for ya’ just let me know at mrcanacorn@gmail.com or hit me up in the comments section!

THE ROOM Week: Serendipity, Baby!

roomwk First up, just a friendly reminder that THE ROOM Week is only days away!

That’s right, boners, a whole week of THE ROOM related goodness right here on Awesomeness!

From May 4th to the 10th (that’s a Monday through a Sunday) I’ll be assaulting your brain pans with my musings on Tommy Wiseau‘s cinematic masterpiece!

Oh and remember, If you feel like posting anything at all about THE ROOM and/or Tommy Wiseau any time between the 4th and 10th of May just hit me up with an email at (mrcanacorn@gmail.com) and a link to your blog or website and I’ll throw you in the mix!

Hi doggie.

Hi doggie.

And secondly, on Wednesday, May 06, 2009 Tommy Wiseau is screening THE ROOM right here in Austin!

At my favorite movie theater, The ALAMO DRAFTHOUSE!

No fucking way, right?!

Right smack dab in the middle of THE ROOM Week!

Obviously, The Wife and I already purchased our tickets (Thanks for the heads up, Bwana!)

Here’s their write up:

Austin’s premiere venue for alternative comedy, ColdTowne Theater, presents this once-in-a-lifetime cinematic event- an evening with Writer/Director/Actor Tommy Wiseau inside THE ROOM!

Love is blind.

Love is blind.

If you’re one of the select few who’ve had the good fortune to see THE ROOM, your mind is already blown and you are quite possibly unable to read written language. But if you haven’t, you may be wondering how a humble independent feature — albeit one shot simultaneously with both 35mm and high-def digital cameras because the director wanted to compare the two formats — could have so quickly become a cult sensation on par with THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW.

Scotchka!

Scotchka!

Let’s just say that no matter how much you think you know about what a movie is, THE ROOM will prove you wrong. Wiseau says that he intentionally shot this movie as a “black comedy” and we say, “Sure, what the hell.” We’re just happy he made it, and we’re ecstatic that he’s personally coming down to Austin to share it with us. People will be talking about this for years, guaranteed, so don’t miss it. We would quote the film, but the most repeated line in the whole movie is “Don’t worry about it,” and we want you to worry about it.

I can’t fucking wait!

THE ROOM WEEK!

It’s coming…..THE ROOM WEEK.

Enter THE ROOM and leave forever changed!

Enter THE ROOM and leave forever changed!

When? MAY 4th through the 10th!

Where? Well right here at Awesomeness, of course! And possibly at your very own blog if you fell like playing along.

It’s easy! If you feel like posting anything at all about THE ROOM and/or Tommy Wiseau any time between the 4th and 10th of May just hit me up with an email at (mrcanacorn@gmail.com) and a link to your blog or website and I’ll throw you in the mix!

Don’t get all stressy…it’s not like you have to post something THE ROOM related every day of the week!

Oh, and you won’t be alone!

I know Bwana (the depraved mastermind behind GORILLANAUT and THE NAKED JUNGLE) has some big plans as well as The Tenebrous One over at THE LOVE TRAIN FOR THE TENEBROUS EMPIRE!

See…you’ll be in good company.

Now I know some of y’all have no idea what I’m talking about. So watch this trailer and get a small taste of what THE ROOM has to offer:

Looks awesome right? Well let me tell you, the trailer is totally misleading….seriously, you have no idea what is in store for you when you enter THE ROOM!
