One of the highlights of the festival each year is the Fantastic Debates. Two men enter. They bicker a bit. They enter the ring and one man leaves as they say. If done right and in the spirit of fun the debates can be downright hysterical. Our own lord and master has entered the ring twice in years past and has come out victorious both times. And festival founder Tim League always offers his body science in the name of entertainment and always caps off the evening with a debate and fight of his own. And this year he entered into a debate with Man of Tai Chi director Keanu Reeves about the merits of Tae Kwon Do versus Tai Chi. Then he fought Tiger Chen. Though word has not trickled down from our team at the festival how the debate and fight went the photographic evidence and Tim's bloody nose suggests that the fight went in favor of Tiger Chen. 

And what is with Todd eating his own shirt before the screening of R100? Todd saw a film that he liked a lot during TIFF. So he went online and said if he found a crazier film during the festival he would eat his own shirt. A couple days later he saw R100. As Todd is a stand up fellow and a man of his word he ate his shirt before the screening at Fantastic Fest. As far as we know he is still alive.

Pff... I've seen Tim looking worse.

And Todd... what sauce did you use to get that shirt down? Do I spot celery as well? Was the shirt by itself not disgusting enough?

Oh Todd, there's just some things you don't have to do. I salute you sir!!!

The shirt was cooked in a slow cooker for about 24 hours before I ate it. It was in a red wine sauce with carrots and celery. Probably about as tasty as these things can be. And what I actually said was if I saw a film half as crazy as Why Don't You Play In Hell, not crazier. I set the bar too low!

Ah, crap. I sure hope that I am not forced to eat my hat because of my comments on the thread here:

I am not sure my vegetarianism allows me to eat the beaver felt fedora, but I guess I could choke down my Biltmore straw it if came down to preserving my good name. Maybe in a nice Viet stir-fry.

I'm not sure that, as a vegetarian, you're even allowed to WEAR a beaver felt fedora!

That's vegans. My cowboy boots alone are made out of three different creatures.
