Crew Challenge 250 – Go Karting
Crew Challenge 250 – Go Karting
A two player team time trial in go karts. I don't know how many of us have customs and I'm not sure how much faster the customs are, so I am going to say CUSTOMS OFF for this one. Rather than each team mate using a different car there are two tracks. One teammate does the first, the other does the second. As usual sign up now, semi-random teams will be drawn when we have enough players. Recent winning pairings to be excluded are Ally & Rammstein (CC246), Me & Skorp (CC244), Con & Skorp (CC242).

 

The tracks are

Go Karting A Mile https://socialclub.rockstargames.com/job/gtav/9fOfO4OrOUW0K55_lRB0nA


Go-Quartz https://socialclub.rockstargames.com/job/gtav/sLElpKzuFkG0ei7d1obSFw




 

 

 

Usual rules

Fastest lap


Any weather / time of day


Any number of laps / attempts


Non-contact if racing with others


No run ups


non-customs


one teammate does Go Karting A Mile, the other does Go-Quartz


add up the two team-mate's times for the team total

Barton Fink [RSC Film Club 37]
This month's film club selection comes from the filmography of Ethan and Joel Coen, as nominated by @djw180.  The winning film is their lesser known 1991 thriller/comedy/noir film Barton Fink, selected by @Con.

Set in the early 40s, Barton Fink stars John Turturro as the titular character, a hot new playwright who goes to Hollywood to start working on movies.  However, upon arriving he finds that he is being told what to write, and has to stay at the rundown Hotel Earle, which may in fact be hell.  This film has a great, and terrifying, supporting turn from John Goodman as Charlie Meadows, his hotel neighbour, and smaller but memorable roles for the likes of Steve Buscemi and Tony Shalhoub.  

A dark and sometimes surreal film, this has elements that remind me of Mulholland Drive, but with that distinctive Coen Brothers twist.  This is actually my favourite film of theirs and need no excuse to watch it again.

Crew Challenge 249 – Double Entendre Photo Contest
Crew Challenge 249 – Double Entendre Photo Contest
This a photo contest suggested by @Beez based on one he has run before. Take a photo in game (GTA) of something with a double meaning. The hidden meaning is usually s*xual or violent and always funny. There's lots of advertisements and logos like this. The logos look normal until you give them a second look.

To start with we'll say you can submit as many entries as you want. The winners will be decided from a poll. If there are too many to go in one poll I may ask you to pick your best 3 or something like that.

Post your photos here as we go along so that someone else doesn't duplicate your entry. We have done this before a few years ago, so if you took part then try to find something new (if you can remember what your entries were last time). Photos can be taken any way you like, screenshots or snapmatics.

Please try to have all your photos posted before this ends so we can get the poll started ASAP.

 

Starts now

End 19:00 UK time 29th Nov.

Nosferatu: A Symphony of Horror [RSC Film Club 35]
It's spooky season and that can only mean one thing here at the film club, time for horror.  Just like last year we are having a double bill with a classic and a modern horror film.  For our classic selection we have F.W Murnau's legendary German expressionist vampire film Nosferatu: A Symphony of Horror.


Starring Max Schreck as Count Orlok the film is an unauthorised retelling of Bram Stoker's Dracula, the names all changed to avoid lawsuits, but other than that it is a pretty faithful version of the story.  It was so faithful that the estate of Bram Stoker sued the production company and won, putting the company out of business and having a judge rule that all copies of the film be burned.  Luckily for us one print survived and made its way around the world, becoming one of the first "cult films".

There is also an interesting mythology behind the film, the most famous myth being that Schreck was not an actor but an actual vampire, so shocking his appearance and creepy his performance.  This idea is brilliantly explored in the film Shadow of the Vampire (2000) which stars John Malkovich as Murnau and Willem Dafoe as Orlok.

This is also, by a long shot, the oldest film we've covered here, and our first silent film.  I haven't seen this since my college film studies classes and can't wait to revisit one of the most iconic horror films of all time, and hear what you guys think.  

The whole film is available to watch on YouTube.  There is a blu-ray remaster on there, but I prefer this original version with the differently coloured tints.

Night of the Bogey Car!!!
Come and join us for some last minute planned Halloween fun this Wednesday...

This Halloween themed night will feature a new racing system called the Bogey Car!

We will all pick a different car on the grid, we will elect chose the worse car and elect this to be the bogey car, we will select a few other choices to be known as the 'popular cars'. Whoever won the last race and/or whoever is top of the Playlist will have to race in the bogey car.

To rid yourself of the Bogey Car curse all you need to do is not finish last in a race and you can go back to the popular selection again.

Best Halloween gif below get pole in the first race!

Rigged Random Car Extravaganza Pt6
Come and join us on Wednesday 20th of October at 8 PM British time for Part 6 of the Rigged Random Car Extravaganza! After doing the Rigged Random Tier Extravaganza recently I thought it was only fitting (and time) to see what wacky, fast, slow, stupid cars it would give us.

After a meet up in free roam east across the water from Bristols (The big t*ts looking buildings 💦) we will launch into a playlist of races where you will only know what car we will be racing each race when we get to the race lobby.

Each car is determined by a random generator with a few exclusions like not more than 3 cars from the same class, used recently in an event or often used cars in regular races (I.E. cars like the Krieger in Supers).

We will run GTA races so we can spawn in cars for those who do not have them.

The Shining [RSC Film Club 36]
The modern half of our horror double bill was nominated by @PretendWereDeadand is Stanley Kubrick's haunted house masterpiece, The Shining.


The film stars Jack Nicholson and Shelley Duvall as Jack and Wendy Torrance, a couple charged with looking after the isolated Overlook hotel during the winter months.  Along with their young son Danny (Danny Lloyd) the soon discover that they may not be alone.  I don't think I have to say much more about this film here, it's so legendary that even the carpet is iconic.  

It is interesting to note that Stephen King, author of the book on which this is based, hated this film so much that he made his own TV miniseries version in the late 90s.  However, he is in a very small minority with that opinion.  There is also a documentary about the legions of conspiracy theories about this film called Room 237 (I wasn't a fan, but some of the theories are interesting).  There is also a sequel, Doctor Sleep, released only a couple of years ago, starring Ewan McGregor as an adult Danny and is is much better than it has any right to be.

Gamblers Anonymous
Come and join us this Wednesday for a night of racing!!

Race points will go out the window as the only thing we will keep track of is the money...

Every race will see every racer bet on the outcome, make sure you bring a pencils and some paper to keep track of your gains and losses as the player with the highest cash sum at the end of the night wins, so its go big or go home.

Bet as little or as much as you like on each race (every missed bet will cost you cash and grid positioning).

You cannot bet on yourself to win.

The races will be locked to one car (sorry all my jobs to make things easy) so we don't waste tie picking cars, we can just bet!

Post below to roll the dice.
