This is it! This is the Fantasmo that has been six long months in the making! This is THE Fantasmo event of the summer! As all of you who read the blog well know, following the receipt of the best Christmas gift ever (http://fantasmocinema.blogspot.com/2007/12/seagalogy.html) I began an odyssey into the world of Steven Seagal. I revisited the classic Seagal films I had enjoyed in his heyday, and plunged headlong into his prolific DTV era work. But I didn’t stop there. No sir. I began enjoying his Lightning Bolt energy drinks (http://fantasmocinema.blogspot.com/2008/04/steven-seagal-is-attack-force.html), and even started listening to his music. I became a full-blown Seagalogist! Now, in celebration of the re-release of the instant classic that is Seagalogy (http://fantasmocinema.blogspot.com/2008/02/vern-talks-seagalogy-fantasmo-interview.html ), comes a Fantasmo dedicated to all things Seagal! What’s in store you may ask? Here’s but a brief sampling of the wonders you will experience:
*A discussion of the principles of Seagal’s trademark aikido style and a live aikido demonstration by representatives from Aikido of Virginia Beach (http://www.aikido-of-virginia-beach.com/)!
*Samples of both flavors (Asian Experience & Cherry Charge) of Seagal’s Lightning Bolt energy drink to lucky door prize winners!
*Live discussion of Seagal’s oeuvre with reclusive Seagalogy author/Ain’t It Cool News contributor Vern!
*Trailers from Seagal’s classic films!
*Team Fantasmo commentary!
*A superior attitude and superior state of mind!
. . . and much, much more!
