Our group’s activity last Saturday didn’t stop with the video shoot. We also held an episode marathon right after the filming. My X-phile friends who couldn’t make it to the video shoot showed up late in the afternoon to join us in the marathon.
We met up with them in SM Megamall at 5:00 PM then we all went to Wack Wack, Mandaluyong. A newbie in our group graciously offered her place as the venue for our marathon. So we gathered at her place in Wack Wack and watched episodes of The X-Files til late at night. We watched various episodes from different seasons, covering both mytharc and stand-alone. This marathon was quite special since October 13 was just two days away. And X-philes from around the world know that this is Chris Carter’s (the series creator) birthday and is also the name of his production outfit (Ten Thirteen Productions). So we all agreed to make our dinner an X-Files inspired one in celebration of this special date. That meant bringing food that were featured in some of the episodes.
So we had pizza (from the “Bad Blood” episode), chicken (from the “Our Town” episode), rootbeer and iced tea (from the episode “Tooms”), sunflower seeds, popcorn (from the episode “Je Souhaite”), and ice cream in a cone (from the episode “The Unnatural”). Of course we substituted the “non-fat, tofutti rice dreamsicle” to just an ice cream cone since we couldn’t find any dreamsicle available in the metro. There were still many X-Files-inspired food we thought of bringing like liverwurst sandwiches, cupcakes, salad, banana cream pie, cheese steak, vodka, and beer but since our party consisted of only a small group, we opted to bring only a few.
We had so much fun at the marathon and I really enjoyed it. We are hoping to have another marathon before the year ends, preferably when the DVD and Blu-Ray of The X-Files: I Want to Believe is released this December.
