Let me try and explain….
A cross between Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Enter the Dragon, Dogtown, RAD and Sprung (on four wheels) this is a must see movie. A few weeks ago JoeBo showed me a video for a pair of shoes he desperately wanted… a 5:10 rep wanting a pair of shoes?? This had to be good… this was the video he showed me…
A week later I was speaking to Rich Baybutt, he said “Have you heard of MachoTailDrop?”… he showed me the following trailer and proceeded to talk me through how he’s searched all over the interweb for it but couldn’t find the DVD anywhere. “Pah” I thought… I’ll show him. However, it was true, there was no way we could actually get to see this slice of Surreality.
Probing down a bit further I found the guys that made it and, on the off chance, sent them an email and low and behold… They’ve posted over a Blu-Ray for us to show! This will be the finale to out evenings entertainment. If you want to know more about the film and try to figure out what the hell its about check out this, this, this and this and have a good read of this
Film Clip Contest
On the night we will be getting the audience to judge the best clip contest. This is a competition that anyone can enter, you just need to send in a link to your clip and tell us why you think its Rad. We have 3 categories with a prize for each and a maximum clip length of 30 seconds. Its not an edit contest, just clips.
- Funniest #lol
- Best Crash #ooo
- Raddest Trick #rad
You can send us your link in 2 ways:
- Twitter @thisisheffield #TisMTD with the your category hashtag added
- Email firstname.lastname@example.org
The prize will be given to the owner of the clip, so don’t send in other peoples work unless you want them to get the prize.
You may well have seen or even had a go on Rollapaluza and know how much of a laugh it is and how hard it it. However, we’re going to be running our own mountain bike version which will involve a head to head dual race on a turbo trainer with a beer to quench your thirst at the end. Entry will be on the night and the competition will be a knockout format.
Working in teams everyone will compete over a series of rounds including picture, video and music questions testing your knowledge of the biking world and beyond.
The Lantern Theatre
The Theatre itself is amazing, if you haven’t been there yourself you should take this opportunity. Built by a Victorian Gentleman to host his own private theatre productions to entertain his friends, this is a full featured theatre miniaturised. The theatre is here just off Psalter Lane. Check out these pictures of it. Most importantly it has a well stocked bar which we will aim to drink dry over the course of the evening.
Buy your tickets through the Paypal link below, we wont be issuing tickets but your name will be on the Door on the night.
Fancy Dress Contest
The best dressed ManWolf of the night will receive a great prize… What is a ManWolf? If you’ve watched the above trailers you’ve probably got a good idea. But here’s some more inspiration.
