XXX

I rate XXX at 1.2 Scorpion Kings. That should be enough to make you go see it right away, or never see it at all, depending on whether you understand the finer points of blowing up real good. The nightclubs in this movie are full of tesla coils and giant gas jets. My club sucks by comparison. Clearly my level of arch-villainy is totally bush-league.

    Okay, i have to admit you are right about this... IF you want you club to look like a converted hollywood soundstage. since i like my clubs to look like clubs, i think yours is fine.

    BUT... a few tesla coils would be nice.

    oh, and that club in the movie was WAY TO FUCKING BRIGHT.

      I'm surprised you said that - I have to go with Jamie, the clubs in the movie rocked. But I guess it does depend which club - for instance, I didn't like the look at the Rammstein show as much (though it looks like their pyrotechnics are even more involved now than when I saw them at The Edge with KMFDM a few years back- they're richer now I guess). I think all clubs need more of that cobalt blue lighting everybody loves, though. Less reds and oranges, more blues and blacks. :) I might think about that for August 29.

        it was the same set both times, though!

        i thought it looked patently like a soundstage. i don't like clubs that look like a soundstage.

        and it was TOO BRIGHT.

    Pffft, whatever... The new-and-improved DNA effing _rocks_.

    True, for that final bit of Nostromo-esque flair, you could have a few dangling ridged pipes or some breached ducts on the ceiling that eject steam or fog onto the people below, [at least the ones on that upper catwalk level]... or you could always commission your nearby neighbors Survival Research Labs to build some spinny-column-of-flame-shooting-upward-things for people to stand inside and be terrified/amazed.

    Other than that, though, the club is more than a-ok as it is now. Really!

      I just like saying "Nostromo-esqe flair".

      Oh, wait! I do have a point!

      "I would certainly patronize[1] a club that looked like it belonged on the Nostromo: padded walls, blinkenlights, angled bulkheads, &c."

      __________

      [1] In the good sense. Unless the club sucked, then I'd patronize it in the bad sense, of course.

    I think George W. Bush's level of arch-villainy is much higher than yours. Of course he doesn't even know it.

    Looking forward to Beyond the Pale.

    funny thing about xxx: when i saw it, i liked it, but i remember saying to a friend: "that club was so ridiculous! fricking tesla coils?! give me a break." and then i went to burning man, and right after they burned the man we witnessed dr. megavolt vs. the mutaytor, and suddenly it was though we were IN xxx! well kind of.

    the sound that the electricity made was astounding, especially when coupled with ominous spleen shattering bass music. you gotta get one for the dna lounge!
