Movie Lobby

May I make my fond excuses for the lateness of the hour

I thought this week would be fun, but it seems that either everyone I know has forgotten how to read (unlikely, one or two perhaps, but everyone?) or I was completely unclear.

The theme has been guessed as movies with robots in them, so the second part of your guess must be a robot from that movie.

Here are the rules.

Answer only one quote.

If you answer more than one I will delete your reply. If there are quotes still not answered the next day I will open it up to any and all guesses.

Most weeks there is a theme. If there is not a theme I will tell you. The theme is open to guess even if you have guessed a quote.

There is a theme this week, and you can blame shsilver for it

The Theme has been guessed by bammba_m, it is Robot Movies (a little different than shsilver's idea, but close enough

Don't use a search engine (like this can be enforced). If you don't know, you don't know. Maybe next week you will.

You must either be signed into LJ, or say who you are (in case you are a friend of mine who is not on LJ). All anonymous answers will be deleted (hey, I'm obsessive, I want to know who guesses these). Oh, and don't guess as a reply to someone else's guess, on a busy day that makes it hard for me to spot your answer.

You must guess the name of the movie AND an example of the theme in your guess.

01 I need guidance, Great One. For the first time in my life, I am not sure. selensue says this is from Robot Monster, and filkertom steps up and tells us the robot's name is Ro-Man
02 You still don't understand what you're dealing with, do you? noise626 says this is from Alien, and one of the robots in question is Ash (Yeah, I count androids, they're a subset of robots)
03 I'm impatient with stupidity. My people have learned to live without it. jcw_da_dmg says this is from The Day The Earth Stood Still, and one of the robots in question is Gort
04 When a black mountain appears above the clouds, a monster will arrive and try to destroy the world. The ancient prophecy is coming true. polyfrog says this is from Godzilla vs Mechagodzilla, and one of the robots in question is Mechagodzilla
05 Contact us today, or see your travel agent. Boy, have we got a vacation for you. eeknight says this is from Westworld, and being eeknight his guess on the robots are the hot sexbots. I feel that I should give him extra credit
06 No way those guys can outfight us without a 10-to-1 margin. controuble says this is from Battlestar Galactica, and the robots in question areThe Cylons
07 I used to always wonder what you were thinking at that moment.. the2wittybird says this is from Terminator, and one of the robots in question is, of course, The Terminator
08 Not very sporting to fire on an unarmed opponent. I thought you were supposed to be good. mplsfish says this is from Blade Runner, and one of the robots in question is Roy Batty, but I also would have accepted Pris, Leon Kowalski or Zhora
09 There's 215 bones in the human body. That's one. controuble says this is from Terminator 2, and one of the robots in question is The Terminator
10 There can be no understanding between the hand and the brain unless the heart acts as mediator. filkertom says this is from Metropolis, and one of the robots in question is Maria (although Futura might have been more accurate)
11 I'm not arresting you anymore. bammba_m says this is from Robocop, and one of the robots in question is Robocop (although ED-209 might have been more accurate)
12 I am a realist and I need you, so I'm going to be generous. I'm going to let you go without a bit of trouble, and with lots of cash.. tcgtrf is willing to admit that he knows this is from King Kong Escapes, and the robot in question is Mecha-Kong, please give him your sympathy
The joyful day!

The end of Radio Capricon

For this year anyway ...

The station ran great, we had listeners all the time as far as I can tell, although I was not awake for Angel's REALLY REALLY late nights. I know that when I went to bed at 1:30 sunday morning, she still had 3 listeners.

We will be back next year, with some interesting twists that I will discuss later.

The drive back yesterday was pretty horrible. It took me almost 11 hours. Consider that I got to Iowa in the standard 2 to 2 1/2 hours, that should give you an idea how rotten the roads were in Iowa

There better not be any more friggin snow Marscon weekend.

I'm tired, back at work and ready to go back home to collapse, and perhaps get unpacked.

Oh, and a note to daisy_knotwise ... yes ... you DO want to hear sweetmusic_27 and I play Ghosts together ... we ran through it in gundo & born_to_me's room sunday night and it was lovely. She is definitely someone I have to play more with ... and lucky me, she put the whip and knife away, so I felt safe again

All in all I had a wonderful weekend, even with the minimal contact with someone who I really want to spend more time with, and the nasty drive home
