The Breaking Necks Of Catholic Missionaries

If this is not my artist friend Christian Gordy I don't know who the hell he is, but how many friends do I know that have 1 leg, and look like this guy. Just him... so this must be Christian. Kanka called me up earlier today and said you are not going to believe who I just saw in this movie I'm watching. Just like me, Kanka enjoys watching crappy movies for free on the internet... almost anything goes and we rarely reveal what shit we've actually sat thru, but this time he just had to share. So after searching the internet for a place to download it, because Kanka's source was no longer available, I found a bit torrent and downloaded it over a 4 hour period... still mind you, not knowing who I was looking for when I finally watched it.

The film, "Road Trip: Beer Pong (2009)", a direct to video spin-off of a mildly amusing film, "Road Trip (2000)" directed by Todd Phillips, starring Breckin Meyer, Seann William Scott, DJ Qualls, and Tom Green... is to put it plainly not a Todd Phillips film. This spin-off is quite the piece of shit, as so many other spin-off films tend to be... the American Pie franchise comes to mind as well as the recent barrage of National Lampoon films. The acting was horrible and I could swear I saw the boom mic a few times in shots. Not worth watching at all and this is the type of garbage I hate so much I wouldn't even reveal the fact I had watched it to anyone, except for the fact that my friend, who is uncredited both in the films closing credits and on the IMDB (gonna fix that) is in the first 5 minutes of the film. I know I was stating at the beging of this post that I'm not sure it is him, but after a little research I came across a fact that without question proves it was him. The college in the film is supposed to be the University of Ithaca... or more correctly put, Ithaca College - Ithaca, New York, but I have found that it was actually filmed at Agnes Scott College in Decatur, GA... a popular destination for hollywood films supposedly, as some 30 other movies, including "Scream 2 (1997)" have been filmed there.

So Christian... you are a star. I'll actually keep this movie in my library just because you are in it... playing a one-legged student, who gets hit by a golf cart and plays hurt, all in an effort to 'punk" an unsuspecting campus tour group. You did it with a smile and you even got to bump fists and have your leg handed over to you by DJ Qualls. You're the man Gordy... you are the man!

P.S. You look directly into the camera - way too much... CLASSIC!!

The "Psycho" and "Manic Malt" look pretty amazing too! Thanks for the tip. - Schaefer
