I didn't realize you don't see the shows in Australia. That sucks. :(

Yeah, Scott and I are both in the same city and we both contacted the one cinema that even shows Fathom events (and who regularly screen the Room, so you think they'd be into it) but didn't even get responses.
FINE

I tried for Manos too, still nothing.

Hell, it wouldn't have even taken up a precious night - If they screened it live it would have been early in the morning in non-prime time.

That's a great point.

I've been to The Room there 3 times and it's always pretty well attended.  I think the showtime plus lack of name recognition would probably be an issue for Rifftrax though sadly

I think it would be for some of their choices, but for, say, Manos, I think that would have the same kind of crowd as The Room. (Plus if they advertised it AT a The Room screening, they'd surely get a lot of crossover)

Anybody else notice when Indiana is trapped in water somewhere, they always cut away(Except for the crypt scene in Crusade)? Maybe Indiana Jones has an excellent affinity for water or something and Stephen Spielberg doesn't want us to see Indiana has some sort of supernatural underwater breathing abilities?

Or maybe during Monster Fest which is soon-ish?

So I saw a commercial for a "touchless toilet".  It appears to be designed for homes.

So, you sit on the thing, take a crap into it and wipe your butt afterward, but the idea of touching the flush handle skeeves you out?   ???  Well, okay, then.

You flush by holding your hand over the tank (back).

Possible.  I think, more likely, someone just wanted to design a high-tech throne and thought "there are germs on the handle, gross" and didn't put a lot of thought into the activities that occur before flushing.  On the whole, a pretty dumb invention.

Nice scenario:  "Honey.  Ignore the floater in the toilet.  I have to run down to the store and buy some batteries so I can flush it."



(By the way, it is possible to get a toilet to flush with a broken handle.  Growing up poor, you learn to improvise.)
