How Was SFSketchFest/Best of RiffTrax? I managed to go to the Manos screening. Due to an awful movie (one of the Wayans brothers spoofing the Paranormal Activity franchise—I walked in during what seemed to be the guy being jealous as he watched someone loudly having sex with a ghost; not being interested in watching this moment with Dad, we turned and left, opting to stay in the hall until it finished) running too long, Rifftrax wouldn’t have had time for the trivia/joke cards at the start. So the manager let everyone vote—we decided even if it went overly long, we wanted it. Things were fine, until midway through one of the shorts—the power in the whole theater went out. 5-10 minutes later, it came back, and we started where we left off. Someone that had been there for the previous showing (and its interruption by tornado and power outage) said it had happened at that same point, too. The manager (who also personally went in and cleaned up after the previous viewing of that movie) came in and apologized.

Unfortunately, the heat didn’t come back on. Instead, about 20 minutes before the end, the air conditioning was going full blast—so I had my coat on. Got out around 9:45 PM, and made it home shortly before the sleet (which the Weather Channel has dubbed Winter Storm Khan—feel free to insert your own Kirk scream here) started. Outside of all of that, I have to say it was great.
