Ever since the 15th Anniversary, I felt I had to see the 20th. Five long
years I waited, and the 20th Anniversary came to town. The convention
took place across two days, October 20th-21st. The Friday night party
was held at the Roxy Theatre in Los Angeles, and the Saturday night show
was performed at the Pantages Theatre, also in Los Angeles.
I have a few things I wanna say to you, and I actually wrote them down. I'm so happy to be here tonight, because it gives me the opportunity to talk to a lot of very loyal supporters of the Rocky Horror Picture Show. I mean I think, 20 years ago ... my God, 20 years ago ... the time that you guys have put into making this movie what it is. I mean you guys ... the hours, the hours you have spent, you know, standing in lines, up to the Midnight shows. The time that you spent, preparing all of the rice and all of the squirt guns and the, toast and all that stuff, ya know. The creative energy that went into coming up with all these sort of witty retorts. You know, and all the clever, the very clever names that you've, uh, given to all the characters in the movie.
Fuck you too, okay?
20 years, weekend after weekend, my God you sang along with us every night, you mimiced us just so brilliantly ... didn't you? You guys, you've worked so hard. And I just wanna say one thing, from the bottom of my heart...
(puts on Brad glasses amidst cheers)
WHAT THE HELL WERE YOU THINKING?!?!?
(more, more, more, cheers)
You guys have pissed away 20 years of your life, yelling profanities at a movie screen for God sakes!!! What have you gotten back, huh? You have gotten *nothing* back, they are stripping your souls away!!! Taking your spirit and your money, dollar for dollar these people up here are rich for God sakes! And they're taking money from you, from your pockets. Dollar for dollar, you are pathetic. Pathetic, you *freaks*. You're a bunch of freaks, bunch of perverts, a bunch of uhhhhh ..... *bizzaros!* That's what you are, bizzaros!!!
