If you’re planning to stay in for New Year’s Eve we have a simple three step solution on how you can turn it up a notch on your living room revelry.
Step 1: A Bit of Bruce
Available December 31st on Amazon Video On Demand is cult king Bruce Campbell’s MY NAME IS BRUCE which we premiered as a work-in-progress in 2007. (Urban legend has it that Mr. Campbell sat in the back of the theatre adjusting the volume knob on the fly.) MY NAME IS BRUCE is the story of the residents of Gold Lick, Oregon, who decide to kidnap EVIL DEAD star Bruce Campbell, who surely can help them defeat the evil monster (the Chinese God of War) that is terrorizing their small town. Unfortunately, the belligerent, boozed up B-movie actor “Bruce Campbell” has no skills, so their shot at salvation seems to amount to nothing more than a monumentally bad idea. Get the film here on Wednesday and have it prepped on your TiVo or computer.
Step 2: Movie Themed Libations
Go now to the Sloshspot Blog for their list of film themed cocktails so you can hit the store and get the necessary ingredients. The RAGING BULL looks particularly interesting with a mix of Kahlua coffee liqueur, Sambuca and 1800 Tequila. If you’re looking for sophisticated simplicity then THE GODFATHER cocktail with it’s mix of Scotch Whiskey and amaretto almond liqueur will be an offer you can’t refuse (sorry, couldn’t resist). There’s a dozen more cool mixed libations that go from the fruity to the insanely nutty depending on your level of sloshed commitment.
Step 3: Mix Step 1 and Step 2 together
With your TiVo, or computer, primed and a drink or two in each hand, press play and enjoy a sensation normally felt during the CineVegas Film Festival: experiencing the boundaries of cinema against an intoxicating environment. Feel free to repeat as needed. Also need to throw in the prerequisite “drink responsibly” message. Have fun, but be safe, we want you to be around in 2009 to attend the Festival!
If you do partake in this CineVegas style New Year’s celebration, please take photos and send to us at email@example.com. Would also love to get your experience in the comments below.
Happy New Years all!
