Your leader is a fraud! [Oct. 29th, 2006|10:15 am]
Cinema Aficionado: The Rudiments of Film


The creator of this group has been putting you all on. She has claimed to be a Cinema Afficionado, and has has doubtless convinced many of you that she "knows" about movies. This, along with most other supposed facets of her personality, is a complete lie.
How do I know all this? What led me to out BulldogMafia as the cinemaphobe she is? I'll tell you: she confused Ferris Bueller's Day Off with Better Off Dead.
Yes, during a conversation I had with your fearless leader, I mentioned that I had just seen Better Off Dead (a wonderful wonderful movie that I'm sure you've seen, but that you should see again as soon as possible), to which she replied, "The part I always think of when I think about that movie is when they are trying to get the miles off by going in reverse and the car goes out the window." I tried to help her out, saying, "That's Ferris Bueller's Day Off, honey," but she persisted! "No way," she replied, thinking she would know better than someone that had just seen the movie, and has seen FBDO about thirty times...I guess you tell a lie so many times and you start to believe it yourself. Anyway, I set her straight amidst her pleas to "never tell anyone about this," a request that I would have honored had things worked out differently. Unfortunately, another of her lies caught up with her and she forced me into posting all this. I hope you put this information to good use; my suggestion is a coup to take over this community and put it where it belongs: in the hands of people that like movies and know movies.

From http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/aficionado comes the line "also AFFICIONADO". This is the spelling I have chosen, and you and I both know that spelling has nothing to do with this debacle.
