Perhaps the easiest day that will come of this challenge will be today: day 2. The idea is to pick a cult film to recommend to people, and without even thinking, I knew that I wanted to choose The Rocky Horror Picture Show.

It's probably one of the weirdest films to ever grace the screen, boasting themes of sex, aliens, Tim-Curry-in-a-corset, really uncomfortable incest, a bit of cannibalism, creation of man, and musical talents, all rolled into one insane movie.

Janet Weiss and Brad Majors are a newly engaged couple get lost on a trip and take a wrong turn...where they end up is what I consider amazing, but it's their worst nightmare. The modest couple end up in the mansion of Dr. Fran N Furter, a transvestite from Transexual Transylvania, who has been making a man "with blonde hair and a tan...and he's good for easing my...tension".

Between arguably one of the best soundtracks to a musical ever and Tim Curry being the fabulous human being that he is, there are amazing characters (I actually sometimes wonder if the characters Columbia and Magenta were written by following me around for a few months), celebrity appearances (Meatloaf!) and by far the weirdest storyline...possibly ever.

I saw this one when I was around 11 years old on a trip with my day camp. It somehow made its way into the DVD player on the bus while we were on a long ride back from one of our week-long trips. I remember my camp counselors screaming about how they needed to get the DVD out of the bus, everyone around me was sleeping (it was an 8-hour ride home from Virginia), and I was staring, intently, at the insanity unfolding in front of me. From that day on, I was obsessed with the soundtrack and wearing my eyeshadow up to my eyebrows.

^ how I feel about my past eyeshadow habits.

If you've never seen The Rocky Horror Picture Show, stop reading right this second, and go get yourself a copy. I guarantee you'll be Time-Warping all over the house for the rest of your life.
