Photos from the "Goonies Never Say Die!" celebration
As promised yesterday here's a photo set from last weekend's event in Astoria. So what sort of people turn out for the anniversary celebration of a two decade-old kid's movie? Click here to find out.
Included among the 34 photos are shots of the interior of the Goonie House, the attic, what "Mr. Perkins" looks like these days, the line for Chunk's autograph and "Sloth Guy"'s marriage proposal.
There's also a Quicktime video of the "Truffle Shuffle" contest. Click here to take a look but heed this warning first: it could traumatize you for life and kill any houseplants sitting near your monitor.
Also: if you aren't feeling brave, don't keep reading this post...nevermind, it's probably too late. You've probably already seen the screenshot below.
Now I consider myself a fan of "The Goonies" but...as ol' Colonel Kurtz might say "...the horror." Or as Jeff Spicoli might so eloquently put it, "woah, gnarly!" "Sloth Guy" is to left of Chunk (the guy in the white t-shirt).
If you think this is scary, just imagine what goes down at "Weird Science" conventions.
