The Crow's Spooktacular Halloween Countdown: No. 2


Ah yes … this was originally going to be number one until I discussed it one day with my beautiful Astrology Teacher and realized, that a different movie needed to be number one. So here we are at number two. I was about 15 years old Image, a freshman at a rather nice prep school, when a Halloween eve, a rather attractive and playful miss Image, invited me to a midnight showing of the Rocky Horror Picture ShowImage. I knew at that point {as unfortunately I was still yet to lose my virginityImage}, that I had found something close to NirvanaImage. I have since been IN the Rocky Horror Show {not the movie the play mind you} about 30 times, playing both FrankenfurterImage, and at slimmer times RockyImage. You can NEVER top a good movie, and Rocky Horror is far more than that, it is a very BAD movie with WONDERUOUS Par-ti-ci--------Pation! Image

So where does it all lead to you wonder as I am still HOT the second I find out who plays Magenta, and whether or not she’s easy … oops … did I say that out loud, oh well. The funniest thing about Rocky Horror, if you were jaded like me and didn’t see it till mid teens, is that Tim Curry {Frankenfurter} Susan Sarandon {Janet} and of course Meatloaf, became far more successful for other things. When I saw them in this context, it actually felt all that much dirtier {big grins}. The movie “Rocky Horror Picture Show” and the song of course “Sweet Transvestite” … heaven help us all …. Image


Sweet Transvestite

How d'you do, I see you've met my faithful handyman
He's just a little brought down because when you knocked
He thought you were the candyman.
Don't get strung out by the way that I look,
Don't judge a book by its cover
I'm not much of a man by the light of day,
But by night I'm one hell of a lover
I'm just a Sweet Transvestite from Transexual, Transylvania.
So let me show you around, maybe play you a sound
You look like you're both pretty groovy
Or if you want something visual that's not too abysmal
We could take in an old Steve Reeves movie.
I'm glad we caught you at home, could we use your phone?
We're both in a bit of a hurry.
We'll just say where we are, then go back to the car
We don't want to be any worry.
So you got caught with a flat, well, how about that?
Well babies, don't you panic.
By the light of the night when it all seems alright
I'll get you a satanic mechanic.
I'm just a Sweet Transvestite from Transexual, Transylvania.
So why don't you stay for the night? Or maybe a bite?
I could show you my favourite obsession.
I've been making a man with blond hair and a tan
And he's good for relieving my tension
I'm just a Sweet Transvestite from Transexual, Transylvania.
So come up to the lab. And see what's on the slab.
I see you shiver with antici... pation!
But maybe the rain isn't really to blame
So I'll remove the cause, but not the symptom.

Question … So what do you all think will be Number 1 anyway? … Shannon Imageshhhhhh … don’t ruin it Image ;8o)
