In the thread about best sci-fi movie opinions, the Rocky Horror Picture Show was mentioned. That gave me a little idea. If you have seen it (or not, and in the theater or the safety of your own home), what did you think? How has it influenced you? I was 7 when I first heard of it. I saw these fleeting scenes on TV of the Transylvanians doing the Timewarp. I was fascinated by the bright colors and obvious party scene. I'll never forget the glitter. The other part that stuck with me was the repetitious "Don't dream it, be it." I used to sing myself to sleep with that bit. It was a wonderful lullaby. I didn't see the whole movie myself until I got a used videotape of it. (I was too chicken to go into a theater.) The bright colors, the hedonistic individualism, the glitter, and "the dream" all spelled out the biggest influence on my life (I am a self-described "free thinker" and a notorious non-conformist) and explained why I threw myself headlong into the New Wave fashion in the 80s. How about you? Did you just dream it or did you be it?
