Today is Tuesday! and if you’ve been coming here for any length of time, you know that, for most people Tuesday is just the day after Monday, but for you it means that “Time to Vote Tuesday” is here!! YES!!!
What is “Time to Vote Tuesday”?:
“Time to Vote Tuesday” is the session of fun weekly polls which spark thought, debate, and intrigue! Each poll closes in a week with results posted on the following ‘TVT’!
Last week’s poll entitled “Movie Character Fight Club, Rnd 2.“ has now closed with an average of 24 votes per poll. You all made Round 2 so much fun as some of the fights you had to determine were between the likes of Qui-Gon Jin and Zeus, or Resident Evil’s Alice and Ultraviolet. The votes are in and the winners of each fight have been determined. Thanks for making it a blast. There will be a Round 3 soon, however, that won’t be for a few weeks so stay tuned.
Make sure you check out the results in from last week’s poll HERE.
I wish to thank everyone that voted in last week’s polls, shared it with others, and added to the conversation with your comments!
In this edition of ‘TVT’ this week’s poll, entitled “Being Bad at the Movies”, we examine just HOW good of a theatrical patron you really are! 😀
One of the pages I follow (among so many fantastic movie blogs) is fellow LAMB member Random Film Buff (at randomfilmbuff.com), and last year, she wrote a great original that she dedicated to an annoying moviegoer in front of her in her seat at a movie. I loved her poem so much! Check out the first few lines from it below:
I sit and wait; I’m in the perfect seat. I tap my feet to the pre-previews beat.
I am the only one in here. How odd. I halfway listen to the ‘Behind The Scenes’ footage while I nod.
“I KNOW RIGHT!” An intruder! She waddles in on her cellphone, scans the chairs looking for her throne.
Not next to me, not next to me, I pray inwardly. She doesn’t – she plops right in front of me.
Screaming into her cellphone. I scream inside. And what’s that smell?
She readjusts herself carefully. I am in hell.
You know you’ve been there! The entire poem of hers is a MUST-READ! Be sure to check it out HERE! (Thank you, Alley, for the very fun read!)
We’ve all had annoying movie theater experiences! Loudly quietly shushing the loud laughter in front of us, elbowing our friend next to us to stop looking at the time on their super bright cellphone, rolling our eyes as the people behind us open a can of soda (we all know the sound, and we all know that theaters don’t sell canned soda!).
It’s easy to point the finger at people like that and get mad at them as the person, willing chose to sit in the middle and purchase the Big Gulp soda, makes us all suffer numerous times by cutting in front of us and stepping on our shoes in order to go relieve themselves! (SIT ON THE END!!! Arrgghhh!!!) 😀
BUT! Maybe YOU haven’t been the perfect moviegoer either. Hmmm….the tables are turned. Dum-dum-DUUMMMM!!!!
It’s time to fess up. I ask you today to tell me what you have been guilty of at the movies. Vote for all that are applicable as you clear your conscience. Someone, somewhere, is waiting for an apology from you. Today is your chance to anonymously give it by fessing up and voting below in today’s fun poll. 😀
Come on now, don’t be shy. Fess up to your Cinematic Sins! hahaha. And in the comment section, tell me one of your worst movie experiences that you had. It’s therapeutic and good for you to air your frustrations. I am offering the service for free today on this post! Tell your story in the comment section and enjoy others.
Vote before the poll closes on 2-5-13. The results will post on next week’s “Time to Vote Tuesday!”
Thanks for reading! Happy Watching!
