SpoilerShow
01 - Washington DC
02 - Minnesota
03 - Wyoming

Movies Watched:
Heaven's Gate (1980) - very Close call with Brokeback, but I'm declaring this the best of the bunch. I've no clue why this was so hated upon release and why anyone would call this "the worst film ever made" + it killing the Western genre. I guess people wanted something to lash out at, but this was clearly a brilliant film - and it depicts probably the only interesting thing to ever happen in Wyoming.

Brokeback Mountain (2005) - I finally watched this all these years later - after having lived through all the idiotic "controversy" / terrible "jokes" that resulted from this movie's existence. Its perhaps most amusing that this was seen as an "attack on Western culture + American values" due to the whole "gay cowboy" thing - but their sexuality is rather vague to say the least. From a historic view, the old west was an exceptionally gay period - as large groups of men were the first to arrive in isolated areas - leading to relationships between them. Anyway, I suspect all of those who were so worked up over the film never actually watched it. Though maybe they did and were offended by the dichotomy between the idyllic gay eden vs the disgusting misery of heteronormativity.

Close Encounters of the Third Kind (1977) - I think most of the spectacle has long since worn off with this one - as alot of this film seems more like a special effects tech demo (same problem with The Howling :P ).

The Nasty Rabbit (1964) - Perhaps one of the most juvenile films I've ever seen. Its great if you like foreign stereotypes trying to chase after a one-liner delivering talking rabbit - all the while Arch Hall Jr shows up every now and then. I couldn't watch this fast enough when I saw the description; but it turned out to be a huge disappointment. Inane, immature, and idiotic really summarize it well. Although I'll give it high praise for the credits (written on rabbit-shaped signs - placed outdoors)

Travelogue:
Yellowstone Park: ‘Nature’s Playground’ (1936)

Food:
We tried looking forever for any sort of Wyoming dessert - and they either didn't exist or were just a one-off from some BS list or blog. We almost just settled for chocolate truffles. But we ended up making a traditional Wyoming gay cowgirl meal of Basque potatoes, bbq beans, and meatballs. Bison or Rocky Mountain Oysters weren't readily available.

Random Google Maps finds:
Just Dandy Outwest + Outstanding Clothes store
Lethal Weapon 3 pinball machine at Flipper's Family Arcade
Old Faithful Inn with a sign advertising their lunch buffet - which apparently serves brownies du jour, sign me up.

Phrases:
“He’s got a burr under his saddle” means he’s in a bad mood
“They looked like 10 miles of dirt road” means they looked disheveled.

Tourism Brochure Finds:
Aladdin General Store -which advertised: "Come see the Peeling Wallpaper!"
Hoofprints of the Past Museum
Mormon Handcart Historic Site
Mangy Moose Saloon
Chugwater Chili Cookoff
1838 Mountain Man Rendezvous
Cowgirls of the West Museum & Emporium
Campbell County School Science Center Adventurarium

Facts:
Known as the "Equality State" - since it gave women the right to vote in the 1800s.
Despite that motto, only 11.1% of the state legislature is held by women - which is actually the lowest of any state in the country!
Only one Wyoming county did not vote for Trump.
Democrats only make up 18% of registered voters vs 68% for Republicans.
The largest city in the state, Cheyenne (the capital) only has 60,000 people.
Absolutely nothing interesting has happened in the state since the 1890s

Activity:
Tried lassoing one of the chairs. It didn't work.

SpoilerShow
01 - Washington DC - Earth vs the flying saucers + Happy Hooker goes to Washington + Being There
02 - Minnesota - The Heartbreak Kid + A Serious Man + God’s Country
03 - Wyoming - Heaven's Gate + The Nasty Rabbit + Close Encounters of the 3rd Kind + Brokeback Mountain
04 - Nebraska (finally! we started this back in December)

Movies Watched

Boys Town (1938) - At least Going My Way has some fun songs in it; this is just a chore that does everything you know it will do.

Boys Don’t Cry (1999) - Painful to watch on many levels (especially with the film's big Fuck You to Brandon at the end credits). We were waiting to complete Nebraska until we found this movie, which is why this state took over 6 months to complete.

Hex (1973) - The best of the bunch by far + I love the way it handles the feminine power through witchcraft theme.

Travelogue
Postcards from Nebraska - I highly recommend this to everyone. Roger Welsch creates these short little poetic segments on life in rural Nebraska. They can range on topic from Why do people shoot at road signs?; to antique shops are just museums you can buy stuff at; to this super touching short on a trucker who gives people in retirement community's something to look forward to - by sending them anonymous postcards on his travels, giving the forgotten people with few loved ones - something to cling to life to. I can't recommend this show enough to everyone.

Food
We of course made regular popcorn + caramel popcorn (corn is a big thing in Nebraska). And when we visited Florida last month, our hotel had an Omaha Steakhouse in it, so we're counting that as well!

Random Google Maps finds
Hollywood Candy - with an Emergency Candy Rescue ambulance outside (oh God, save the candy!)
Dodge Street in Omaha - which changes directions each day; with overhead lights to tell you which lane goes which direction + no dividers on the ground to help you out! Sheesh

Phrases
Doodinkus = gadget
Detasseling - remove top part of corn

Tourism Brochure Finds
Testicle Festival (yes, this exists)
Prairie Chicken Festival (see which rooster will win the heart of the hen!)
Captain Critter’s Country Campground
Quack-Off Duck Races
Klown Doll Museum
Harold Lloyd home
Brandy’s Balloons and Mini Yoga
Dairy Queen; Arby’s; Pizza Hut - yes, these were all listed in the tourism brochure as places we had to visit whilst in Nebraska .....
Tourism brochure was so boring we no longer want to visit Nebraska.

Facts
The Nebraska Wikipedia's Culture section is completely empty
Fans of Nebraska University wear novelty foam corn hats on their head (ala Wisconsin and their cheeseheads)
The tourism slogan is "not everybody is going to like it here"
Kool-Aid + Arbor Day were invented in Nebraska
This rap song about Omaha exists
How do 2 million people live in this state if its all just farms / ranches?

05 - Florida

Death Curse of Tartu (1966) - Buncha teens at the Everglades, disrespecting Seminole curses with their dorky dancing. For as cool as the monster looks, you never really see it - as the curse takes the form of animals. So they spent all this time making this great monster, and then decided to never use it. It just lays there the whole time. This is also the worst sin of bad horror films: super boring. You just want anything to happen, but instead get to trudge through the swamp.

Attack of the Giant Leeches (1959) - The leeches still looks like garbage bags to me. And this is mostly a love triangle with some dopey monsters thrown in. The leeches /movie also manages to be super cruel with the victims on top of everything else. I hated this film.

Terror from the Year 5000 (1958) - One of those movies that throws in a peeper subplot, just to add some titillation. One of those movies where the things that are ugly must be destroyed. One of those movies where you can escape from a hospital by walking out the front door in your greaser outfit.

The Blood Waters of Dr Z (1971) - Scientists turns self into a fish + plans to take over world by, as the trailer puts it, "polluting the universe" - with his little spray bottle of doom. Or at least until he decides having a fish mate is way more interesting. It continues the mess of Florida films.

Vernon Florida (1981) - I still wish we'd have gotten that nub city documentary. But instead, this felt like a real-life Redgreen Show, with all the small town characters that just go on and on about nothing. I love Morris' description in the extras of the town being full of philosophers who've lost their minds. Also funny that the town was described as being so dangerous, whereas now it looks no different than the many gun & pawn shop towns that we drove through on our trip. Just 20mins outside of Orlando you can be deep in the South.

Travelogues
Glimpses of Florida (1941) - Mostly just Fitzpatrick creeping out on all the swimming beauties.
Quaint St. Augustine (1939) - Manages to somehow be one of the most racist Traveltalks.

Food
Key Lime Pie - had some in Florida + we made some (which was the tartest fucking thing ever made).

Random Google Maps finds
-Vernon FL image: Guy on bannister w/Subway cup
-Hog's Breath Saloon
-Mullet Key
-Breakfast Station - served 6AM to 3PM
Lone shopping cart = epitome of Florida
Separate golf cart road next to car road

Phrases
Bih - which can mean absolutely anything (noun)

Tourism Brochure Finds
-“Best Buffet in FL” = Golden Corral
-World’s Largest “entertainment” McDonalds (no idea what that means)
Nightly good ole fashion gangster shootout
Come meet Queen Esther
Family activity: flea market
Worm Gruntin’n Festival
Old Joe Taxidermy Aligator
Interstate Mullet toss - toss a mullet into Alabama!

Activity:
We spent a week in Florida for a wedding a couple months ago; so we're counting that. It was lovebug season, which was disgustingly horrifying - especially at the beach - with tourists in something akin to a bug horror movie!

Facts
Whilst part of Spain, Florida was a refuge for escaped slaves, until the US government took over Florida and then immediately decided to have wars against + forcibly remove the Seminole Tribe + brought Florida in as a slave state :facepalm: ; which led to most Floridanos moving to Cuba.

For those of you uninitiated, I highly suggest all check out the subreddit - Florida Man

06 - Kentucky

Return of the Living Dead (1985) - OK, so exactly one shot was actually taken in Kentucky; and the "setting" is barely ever mentioned either. But Kentucky doesn't have many films for some odd reason. This is such a fantastic film though. It manages to strike a perfect middleground between scary, funny, and poignant. If somehow in the midst of all the craziness you can have an existential conversation with a zombie, you have to give the film serious praise. Special effects, the punk music, and the camaraderie between the characters really make this a jewel.

Naughty Neighbors (1939) - Easily one of the worst Looney Tunes shorts I've ever seen. Its the Hatfields vs McCoys feud, only with barnyard animals. But that's a sideplot to the main story: Porky + girlfriend pig = in love. They sing a duet, Porky stutters for 5mins, buncha feuding animation, and its over. Its never funny nor endearing. I already dislike Porky, but my goodness this was awful.

Pilgrim Song (2012) - This was the most authentically Kentucky - we even get a bourbon factory tour thrown in! Its initially about a blah couple, where the husband decides he must do this Kentucky hiking trail; but it soon devolves into the life of smalltown Kentucky locals. This feels a bit like King of the Hill when Lucky was introduced - and then follows Lucky's story. Its an early effort from a director, but it was quite enjoyable. The main character is very reserved / mopey / uninteresting; but I really enjoyed the setpieces, the cinematography and the rural charm to it all. It deserves better attention than it has received.

Our Day (1938) - Super endearing short about a day in the life of a Kentucky family. From being awoken by the surly mom; to cutaway shots that seem more like proving they have things like electric lights or running water. The intertitles really sell the comedy inherit here though - like the family "battles for croquet supremacy" - which mostly shows the dog running off with a croquet mallet! I also enjoyed seeing Crokinole - which I had no idea existed. Its interesting to see how little has changed in 80 years. The younger man goes to bed with his malto milk and a magazine, which I'd say was the 30's version of staying up with your phone. I highly recommend this short.


Travelogue
Glimpses of Kentucky (1941) - Horses and racism (everything is "white man ____")

Food:
Our friend made us a great Kentucky dinner. We supplied the drinks and dessert though!
Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp + homemade Lemonade + Fried Chicken + Bacon greens + Biscuits with honey + mac n cheese

Google Maps:
drive-in laundry dropoff place - The Clotheshanger
McMansion hell
Giovanni's Pizza Power
Lost River Cave - covered wedding venue with waterfall thing
National Corvette (sinkhole) Museum

Brochure finds:
history = Hatfield vs McCoys
Lincoln was motherfucking born here
Cathedral of the Assumption
Kentucky's Best: Bourbon, Horses, and Trains (this sums up the brochure perfectly)
The Ark Encounter! ( I wonder if they would allow me in there)

Activity
We watched old Kentucky Derby videos + placed fake bets on who would win. Didn't go so well, as we couldn't tell what order the horses ran / completely understand the announcer.
