I had the weirdest thoughts last night as I woke up at around 3a. I started getting depressed that I may end up trapped in this motel room today since a storm was blowing in and temps were not going to break the single digits. My first thought was the movie "1408" which I watched with Free and Fritz over the weekend. I had completely forgotten about this movie until I looked it up on IMDB. It was the movie where John Cusack played a skeptical writer who specialized in haunted places. He stays at a hotel, run by Samuel L. Jackson, where dozens of people have died in room 1408. So he spends a night and the evil spirits do a complete and total mindfuck on him. I normally don't like horror films, but this one was pretty darn good. And of course I had to MST3K with the line, "That's it! I have had it with these muthahfucking ghosts in this muthahfucking hotel!"
I then started thinking of an even better flick for my current condition. "The Shining." Heck, the hotel that was used is only about 50 miles away in Estes Park! There's also the famous "fursuit scene" in the movie, and Nevada is sitting just a few feet away in his critter coffin. In the movie, Jack starts drinking a lot. *eyes the bottle of bourbon on the table*
"All work and no play make Sabot something something." "Go crazy?" "Thanks! Don't mind if I do!"
