History of Killer Spoons and Revenge of the Forks

In 1992 Scott Rinehart and Brady Speers were bored as college students at Howard Payne University in Brownwood, Texas. With dad’s video camera in hand, Brady decided something video based had to be done.

Attack of the Killer Spoons was the result and you can view it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QKZbsbRYvEk&feature=share&list=PL41E4D98B58FA682E

Starting around midmight, the two collaborated for the next 6 hours on what would become an 8 minute horror classic born out of boredom.

With no iphones, digital cameras or digital software in hand Spoons took honest creativty, some silly use of props and viewer imagination. Yet, 20 years later it’s a YouTube sensation with nearly 200 views.

In 2007, during “Fellas Weekend”, the likes of Brady, Scott, Clint Locks, Ralph Jensen, Dave Curlee, David Tercek, Matt Sherman, Michael Harris, Greg Hightower and a few other faces launched on a rendition of a new horror classic to pay homage to Spoons, called Revenge of the Forks. Using the same creative approach and limited technology, the gang created what will certainly become the next YouTube sensation.

The film was completed in the fall of 2012, just a tad behind schedule. It debuts next week.

A preview is here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pN7JD9bySh4&feature=share&list=PL41E4D98B58FA682E

A live simulcast will be held next Thursday night. Detals on facebook.
Be afraid. Very Afraid.


First Baylor/Football Game

Saturday night we headed out to Waco with some friends of the opposing team and watched Baylor take on Sam Houston State. Floyd Casey Stadium is very old and a place I saw some games myself back in the 80s and again at school there in the 90s. But this was the kids first real football game of significance.

They loved it, up until the 3rd quarter when it was getting late and the boredom factor kicked in. The bands, cheerleaders, and Bear could only do so much.

It was a close game and Baylor sneaked out a close one, but years from now I hope they will remember it like I did with my dad.

Fun times.
