The movie decision was came to with help by the amazing Kayce (kayceislost over at threadless).
I forgot how good of a movie this is.
I would suspect I'm going to return to this to make a more stellar contribution.

Dear American Movie Channel (AMC),
Thank you for resolving an issue I had been having; What to do for the Thanksgiving Guinea Pig Theatre. What movie has Thanksgiving in it, or a great turkey scene? I just couldn't come up with anything epic enough.
But then came Sunday, in which no good television ever exists and wife forced me to watch Billy Bob Thornton in this truly dreadful movie.
But, a moment of magic.
Billy Bob Thornton (as Davy Crockett) proclaims in the midst of a (terrible) dramatic monologue (one of many, thank goodness), "YOU PASS THE TATERS and I PASS THEM RIGHT BACK."
Let me emphasize that line of dialogue took place in a film of Momemtous American HIstory by an American Legend.
Nothing speaks more to me of what Guinea Pig Theatre wishes for us all on this Thanksgiving Day; that someone dramatically refuses some mashed potatoes but not before giving a heartfelt and sentimental backdrop story for why.
EDIT: Why didn't anyone tell me it was sized all wrong? click on the image to go to flickr to see it big and awesome.

(Murder By Death: matt, adam, sarah, dagan)
Murder By Death is a super awesome band. I mean, totally Top Shelf.
If you're socially networked you can listen to some tracks here.
Word on the street is that they actually like Guinea Pig Theatre.
So I'm totally throwing out some return love - I made them a part of the troupe!
I'm also sending them a print of the Big Trouble in Little China episode of GPT. It's, supposedly, their favorite flick, and I'm happy to share it with them.
Seriously, go listen! NOW!
Also, to my design friends they have a contest going where you can do the cover art for their upcoming split 7" - you don't wins money, but you do wins free music.
I'm totally getting in on it. Information is on their front page, which you can link to above and in my links.

Special K is the all time best.
I was watching just the Kenny segments, which I once watched with great amusement, but if you JUST watch the bits where he's trying to pick up girls at the party it's the most tragic shit ever.
"Can't Hardly Wait" is not just a 90s teen movie, it's also a kick-ass Replacements track.
Pretty much all the Replacement tracks are kick-ass, though.
