This topic started after I almost died laughing on Trixie's Venomitis post!
"...So you have offically contracted "Venomitis", an incurable disease of loving the 5DV. Although there is treatment, no sure cure has been found. Many breakthroughs have been tried to cure people infected with this disease but with the onset of technology attempts to find a cure have been side tracked by just treating the disease. I have been infected for quite some time. At its worse I continually watched The Crippled Avengers four times a row. My family got so worried that my VCR was taken away for a week. Then there was the time I actually wrote letters to Lu Feng asking him what flowers we should have at our wedding. That required in house treatment. Last, I visited a school for the handicapped to gain a greater appreciation for the blind, deaf, and mute, and mentally challenged and then organized a fund raiser to help the boys in the Crippled Avengers.(Lucky, I had a good lawyer who helped me to avoid jail time on fraud charges). It is a challenge to fight off the symptoms of the disease but you are at the right place. There are good people here who understand what you are going through...."
(Poison, you are so right!)When your greatest fear is that this fan site will be down for more than a day and your husband refuses to watch that goddamned "iron feet"segment just one more time for the laughs.
When you wait for Halloween to wear your special Venoms outfit in public and everyone says "hey cool costume" while secretly you know you paid a designer $500 to design and make it for you and everyone thinks its a gag.
Everytime you hear the Sade song By Your Side, you immediately think of Chiang Sheng. As a result of watching the tribute so many times, the images may start to play in your head. If you've really got Venomitis, you begin to tell the people around you about Chiang Sheng like they could really care (Happened to me this weekend).
You said it Venomsfan! Whenever I hear that Sade song, images of Chiang Sheng pops in my head and it reminds me the first day that I "got back" into watching kung fu movies and blindly renting "5 deadly venoms." And I immediately came upon this site after I wanted to know more about the movie.
I have YOU to blame Venomsfan, for getting me hooked on the Venoms like a ho on crack (lol).
When you comeback from watching the pathetic movie "Elektra" you pop in a venom movie to remember that at one time stars actually knew how to perform onscreen fighting and the director knew how to freakin keep the camera still.....DAMN IT ALL
HAHAHAHA! that was a good one special. I don't think I'll ever think of paper towels quite the same way again. Hey maybe if you ask right, they might let you join the resistance movement a gainst the manchus too! Restore the Mings I say.
You know you're a fan when you are explainig to your friends about the day before (spent watching Venom movies of course!) and it comes out like the venoms are your actual friends and you were there, (we all experience the situations these guys get into).
The worst part is your friends think you are hanging out with some really cool people they never met and seem a little jealous.
EXAMPLE: I told my friend how i thought it was cool when Chiang hung from a knife in a tree- upside down and was still fighting off a ninja,
My friend replied "how did he do that and who the heck is Chiang?"
I can relate to almost every one of your posts on here, as I was reading them aloud, my husband was busting up at how he said I could have written them all, I reminded him that there are more people in this world like me so I must not be crazy. LOL
I find myself naming just about every thing I do with a "style" even have hubby doing it.
Example, bending over to pick up something, "Swan Dive Technique"
maybe turning around quickly, " Tornado's wrath" etc.
You spend more time standing (rather than sitting) in front of your big screen tv during a venom movie (to imitate the fight moves of course!)
Or when you download every version of "Kung fu Fighting" onto one CD so you can play it while driving and all the kool fight scenes go through your head while listening to it. Kool way to spend idle time when you cant get to a tv.
We definitely get it! Isn't it nice to be among "your peeps". HAHAHAHA! Now for the screensaver, I hope you are a girl or your friends are gonna think that you are taking this sh** a little too far. LOL
Yes,Trixie i'm a girl and my hubby just rolls his eyes at the screensaver 8-p!
You Kmow You're A Venoms Fan if you noticed almost immediately that in Daredevils,every scene where Phillip Kwok is practising with his father,its actually Lu Feng in a wig,but it took you nearly a week to notice your sister got her hair cut Very VERY short...?
Would that count?
Oh yeah! took me a couple of viewings to notice but I guess its natural the team--who were so used to practising with each other anyway-would do stunts for those actors who couldnt take the physical stuff.Look real close on one of those practises and you can kind of tell the old man from just Lu in a dusted wig.
I also noticed in Ten tigers of KwanTung,when fu shengs character has gone to the docks to pick a fight with Lu's character (dont ask me to spell that name) and Lu Feng swings across the rope and knocks him into the water--the guy falling into the water looks more like Chiang Sheng then Fu sheng, and I used to wonder why they were doing Fu shengs stunts.
Oh..*cough cough* did I forget to mention I was slightly obsessed? 8-p
when you have unknowingly tranformed others' way of thinking.
I put in a kung fu movie (not Venoms..sorry,) and hubby say's :"This is boring, change it to one of those cool one's you have with those deadly Venoms in it." I thought if I had put one in like originally planned, he would have said "Not again!"
I think it is money well spent. I'd love to be with a crowd of my peeps enjoying a Venom's movie and a big bucket of popcorn. I would be in the front row with my "I love Lu Feng" sign blocking everybodies view.WHAT FUN!If he's showing Crippled Avengers, I could just hear everyone laughing at "He's got Iron Feet". And the applauses at the practice scenes. AHHHHH just to look at Chiang Sheng flip through those rings is pure joy. Take pictures and let us know how everything went. PLEASE
You know you are a venoms fan when you buy a dune buggy for the desert and your hubby gives you a bunch of racing stickers to deck it with and you say no, I want this to be done right!
I have been searching all the toy stores and science stores for those little plastic creepy crawlies Centipede, Snake, Lizard, Scorpian and Toad to super glue to the rails. I even have a Shaolin MONKey named Abbott as my mascott strapped to the back of the buggy.
I haven't lost my mind, I buried it so I can be me!!
