The Interview [RSC Film Club 30]
This month's film club is all about controversy, films that got people riled up for whatever reason.  The winning film was nominated by @Beezand is the 2014 comedy The Interview, directed by Seth Rogen and and Evan Goldberg.


The film stars James Franco and Seth Rogen as a talk show host and his producer who manage to arrange an interview with Supreme Leader of North Korea, Kim Jong-un (Randall Park).  When the CIA learn of this, they recruit the two to assassinate him.  You can probably see where the controversy comes from here.  A few months before it was released North Korea threatened action against the USA if it were to be.  This led Sony to heavily edit the film, and release it online instead of in theatres, of which it only got a limited run.  Sony were also hacked by a group called the Guardians of Peace, who the FBI traced to North Korea, and they threatened terrorist attacks against any cinema showing the film.  All of this over a stoner comedy full of d*ck and fart jokes.

In the end, nothing really happened, and this film seems to have fallen through the cracks of the collective pop culture memory.  When I watched it a few years ago I remember really liking it, especially Park as Kim Jong-un, and the hilarious cameo by a famous rapper.  I preferred Rogen and Goldberg's previous film, the apocalyptic meta-comedy This Is The End, but I'm still looking forward to revisiting this.  


this is 2014, women are smart now

We will race the Pigalle, Retinue, Savestra, Viseris, Z-Type & Zion Classic against each other. You stay the whole night with the car you choose so choose wisely. These cars should be all about the same pace with their own strengths.

Your Machine Hidden
Your Machine Hidden

 Come and join us on Wednesday 5th of May at 20:00 UK Time for Your Machine Hidden! Just turn up to the parking lot of the str*p Mall in Harmony in a random NPC or Pegasus car.

Instead of determining of who has the best car before we start a playlist everyone who signs up has to hide their car in Los Santos which we have to find as we do in Mystery Car. This means that you get to shout clues of the location/car instead of me.

For this event everyone picks a raceable car they want us to race in and picks a general area to search in so each car wont take as long as my searches and we shouldn't be able to accidentally find other peoples cars before we start looking for them.

Sign up with the general area you like to hide your car but do not tell us the car in advance! An Area is something like Downtown, Vespucci/Del Perro & Vinewood/Pillbox Hill. For this one to make the areas slightly bigger you can also pick the Vinewood hills as an area which we usually omit.

Pick whichever vehicle you think people should get a taste of! We will do all races as one makes so you might have to spawn some copies of your vehicle. We are not tied to a 100k budget like usually with Mystery Car but you can still pick one if you like.

I will invite everyone who signs up in a random order to give a little bit of time for everyone to hide their car. This inviting might start slightly before 8 PM UK time depending on who I see online.

Post below with the area you plan to hide your car in to get involved! No duplicate areas.

Warriors (Will determine later)

XDBX vs RCRH (re-match with GUNS)
We have been asked to play a mixed Head to Head against RCRH (race clean race hard).

We played them in a pure racing event, we did good but they did better. LINK

So if you want to bring your guns and get revenge, this is the time.

We have agreed on this:


Order got messed up, but same jobs:

https://socialclub.rockstargames.com/games/gtav/ps4/playlists/playlist/vyQ1WozdYU-o9m5hwlN-rA#

We will count total points for each crew, not # of jobs won. That way we can focus on fun during the event, and count points after.

 

 

 

RSVP open:

 

They also wanted to do a pure racing event again, we could set that up with tracks we enjoy. I will start a separate thread on that.

The Favourites (Muscle Part 2)
The Favourites (Muscle Part 2)

Come and join us on Wednesday 14th of April at 20:00 UK Time for The Favorites! Just turn up to the parking lot underneath the Peckerwood sign opposite Los Santos City Hall on Occupation Avenue in Alta, Vinewood in your favorite eligible Muscle car you sign up with.

We will determine who has the best Muscle Car before we start a playlist to determine the winner of The Favourites!

We will race all Muscle cars against each other where people will vote before each race which they'd like to drive in. To not have things like people having to race Slamvans against Yosemites I have omitted the fastest and slowest in the class. They are divided into two groups since the class is so big and has such a wide variety of pace to come to the following list of eligible cars. This is the slower of the two groups.

Cars which are eligible and have not been taken are:

Buccaneer Custom


Buccaneer


Gauntlet Classic


Vigero


Ellie


Faction Custom


Peyote Gasser


Lurcher


Nightshade


Virgo Classic Custom


Manana Custom


Faction Custom Donk


Faction


Moonbeam Custom


Picador


Virgo


Hotknife


Lost Slamvan


Chino Custom


Chino


Virgo Classic


Moonbeam


Voodoo Custom


Voodoo


Rat-Truck


Rat-Loader


Slamvan


Pick whichever you think people should get a taste of or should suffer in! But beware.. You're going to have to drive your own car in the first and final race.

Don't worry if you don't own any of the eligible Muscle cars, we can spawn them in for you where needed.

Post below with the vehicle you plan to bring along to get involved! No duplicates if possible.

Verstappen (Will pick last)

The Ingenious, Themeless, Seamless, Playlist. Wednesday 7th April. 8pm
Come join us this Wednesday 7th for The Ingenious Themeless Seamless Playlist.

Or if we want to give it a shorter name it would be great if someone came with an acronym.

There will be a variety of races scavenged and scraped deep from the bowels of my bookmarks, There'll be some tried and tested favourites and there'll be some I've briefly played with randoms over the last few years and hit L1 to bookmark, sometimes by accident.

Amongst some classic race tracks old and new there willl also be.....

A mountain tme trial in Monster Trucks

A Tomb Raideresque platform game  in Pantos

Almost certainly American Grand Park

A weird recreation of Pearll Harbour which I stumbled across with some Italians and really enjoyed.

Some Go Karts.

Other stuff I'll dig out between now and then.

A reasonably average Wednesday nights entertainment is guaranteed so sign up below!

TGIF
Let's bring back TGIF. Well kind of ...
It shall be called:
T(he) G(r)I(nd) F(riday).
A lot of us, probably most, don't really play this game daily for hours, like we used to, yet we still need those millions to buy the next car for Sunday racing or all the new clothing with the next update ...

Let's open a beer (or two, or three, ... who's counting anyway 😒), sit back on a Friday night

Have you got another shipment of Coke/Meth to distribute, but you don't really feel like flying Dodos for 25-30 minutes around the map by yourself?

Have you accidentally completed a car collection that you want to get rid of?

Have you grinded solo collecting crates during the week and filled a warehouse perhaps?

Do you just want to try some non-solo missions that are perhaps even double $ this week?

Everything goes, as long as it makes good money, can't be done solo (or is much easier/faster with a group) and is just easier, faster or even pays more with more players in the lobby.

When?

Well, Friday night, duh. It starts as soon as one of us opens an empty public lobby and announces it in the shoutbox. Everyone else just joins on that player or asks for an invite in the shoutbox. It ends in the early morning hours Pacific times, when 2 Bros pass out from too much beer/whiskey. But generally, let's aim for the majority of sales/jobs to happen during the 20:00-22:00 UTC window...
