Welcome, one and all, to the Pre-Weekend Recap for the week of November 29, 2013! I certainly hope you spent your Thanksgiving holiday surrounded by family, friends, and food. If you’re anything like me, you’re still full from yesterday’s meals. Or perhaps you’re just getting back from contributing to the hyper-capitalist scourge known as Black Friday shopping (no judgment here, I scored a great deal on a 3DS XL around midnight). The point is, you’re far too exhausted to do much of anything useful or productive, so the best way to spend today and the rest of the weekend is kicking back and gorging yourself on One of Us content. Thankfully, there was a veritable cornucopia of fun features this week. Here’s a few of them to get the weekend started right!
Write A Movie With Us: Week 5
Write a Movie with Us’ fifth week is another huge one, because it is time to start writing! Now that there’s a plot, a suitably spooky environment, and characters to populate your world, you and your cohort of collaborators will be drafting the first act of your horror film. Of course, Chris Harrison is on call, setting up guidelines and helping you shape your ideas, but you’re the real agent of creation here! You can be as formal or informal as you like, the important thing is to get in the writers’ room to help lift Act One of the ground!
Inside the Locker: The Gravy Bowl!
This edition of ITL is a family affair! Brian’s father, the great James Salisbury, is on mic with your favorite sports nerds to share his insight and join in on the Crossover! Eat, drink, and drink some more along with the gang as they discuss the latest sports headlines, hand out prestigious awards, and tell us what aspects of sports they’re thankful for this year!
Ash & Fern: Hair’s to Effie: A Follicle-Themed Tribute to Catching Fire
Ash and Fern are back to talk about the best wigs in cinema as a “tribute” to The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. While Effie Trinkett is in a league of her own when it comes to hairdos, there have been some other incredible styles in media over the years. Who makes the (hair)cut on the ladies’ list? Do you have any suggestions of your own to add to theirs? Check out the post and let your thoughts known in the comment section!
6 Films to Describe Your Sex Life
After a particularly contrived accident, the INTERN-Net’s own Angelo Elauria has found his mind firmly in the gutter. While he was waiting for assistance, he took advantage of his unique perspective and wrote a list of six films that could adequately describe an adventurous and incredible sex life. The choices are certainly diverse, so give it a look and let us know if you have any other titles to add to the list! I wonder if anyone ever helped poor Angelo get back on solid ground…
The Die Cast: Your Own Personal Westeros
Our resident Dungeon Master, Mr. Jacob Hall, has returned with a merry band of adventurers to talk about A Game of Thrones: The Board Game. If Jacob is to be believed, this game is not for the faint of heart or the easily-distracted. He also considers it one of the best board games out there. Are you’re a hardcore tabletop gamer who thrives in an environment of deception, cunning, and deep strategy? Then this is the episode for you!
10 (or more) Alternate Batman vs. Superman Titles WB Should Use
When some of the proposed titles for the Man of Steel sequel were revealed, a lot of us here at One of Us were less than impressed. One in our number, Mr. Mason Daniel, took it upon himself to help WB out with its naming problem. Turns out all they needed was a healthy doses of stark and sarcasm to vastly improve their suggestions. Give Mason’s titles a gander and add your own in the comments!
That’s a great start to a great weekend, so I’m going to sign off. Still, this season is all about sharing, so don’t hoard all the One of Us goodness to yourself! Be sure to recommend all of our content to any other geeks out there and help them become Us! So long!
