Dammit Janet



Lambs, what I'm about to reveal to you may shock you. It may upset every idea of me you ever had. You may shake your head and say, "Fireblossom is just not the gal we thought she was." But truly, I promise to put aside the wasted years and do better in the future.


You see, dear readers, until today, I was a Rocky Horror Picture Show virgin. Yes, it's true. My empty life held no meaning. I had never done The Time Warp. But now someone--a woman who seemed at least marginally normal--has deflowered me. Pardon my frankness. Pardon my Frank N. Furter-ness.


And now, if you'll just take a step to your left. Jump back to the right. Put your hands on your hips...

I love the Rockie Show Picture Show.

I went to my first midnight showing in high school. It was quite eye looking.

Not even once?

I hope the experience wasn't too traumatic for you ;-)

I thought that was Tim Curry! I haven't seen it...

ellen abbott said...

How could you live this long and not have seen it?

Cloudia said...

Ah! So you see the resemblance between Sarandon and moi?



Aloha, Friend!

I'm sick about it just sick, but then no one is perfect, so I forgive it, besides you did see it, didn't you.
You take care.
My love,

Confession - I only lost my RHPS virginity only about 5 years ago :)

LL Cool Joe said...

Never seen it, never danced to it but I have played the track at a disco and it cleared the floor. Biggest dance floor killer of the night!

the walking man said...

I go one up on LL cool Joe...never seen it, never heard one song all the way through they may or may not have been in the movie and I have never played the disc as a DJ, of course I have never been a DJ.

I am saving myself for "just the right moment"

They always showed it at midnite in theaters, that's how I watched it.

I am still a RHS virgin

Marion said...

I saw it when it first came out (many, many times) and even did the dress-up thing and sang along with a theater full of fellow stoned hippies. Welcome to the club.

Mama Zen said...

If I may (you may) . . .

"Relatively normal?"

Ily said...

OMG, I've never seen it! I wanted to (I think a baby Susan Sarandon is in it, right?). At first, I was too young to see it (and remember, I had strict Cuban parents!). Then when I got old enough it wasn't popular anymore and no one wanted to see it with me. :(

Glad you liked it, Chica! If you lived closer I'd invite you and RK over for a slumber party and watch it!
