The stars are out tonight...

Postby CatsEye21 » Mon Sep 21, 2015 1:40 am

Hey all! Stoked to be here. I'm a 20-something female from Aus, just recently discovered The Warriors and now can't get it out of my head (which is real handy, 36 years after the release date - always late to the party ;) )

So how I came to be here - I was flicking channels one night when I caught sight of some Woodstock-looking gathering, seventies kids in crazy get-ups, but no bands and no music. Then some slick-looking dude in his bathrobe yelled 'can you count, suckaaaaas?' and I was hooked. I stood there for 20 minutes watching before I remembered to sit down again. I remember even that first time, I felt sick when charismatic Cyrus got shot down in his prime, right at the height of his speech - ouch.

Since then, bought the DVD, watched it way too many times then is good for my social life, and looking for a (reasonably priced) copy of the game. So much to love about this movie and for some reason it never gets old to watch.

So good to see that there's this unreal website and big community here - it seems a little quiet lately but I'm hoping some regulars are willing to chat with a newbie ;) I've already bored literally all of my friends to death talking about this movie, and I'm guessing 0% of the locals are going to understand my Baseball Furies Halloween costume this year (whatever, I'm doing it anyway) so I'm keen for a chat anytime.


As an initial offering, here's my personal Top Ajax Moments to Give the Feels:

- When he was the only one in the crowd who wasn't buying what Cyrus was peddling (with the exception of Luther, who possibly couldn't hear Cyrus's speech over the voices in his head).

- When he paused to flip off a busload of armed screaming skinheads, not to impress anyone but because he felt it was the appropriate thing to do.

- When he leapt the turnstile like the lovechild of a gazelle and a teenage Romanian gymnast.

- When he almost sang about what a 'bunch of chicken sh*ts!' the AC's were on the train.

- 'I'll give it to ya baby.'
Rewind...
'I'll give it to ya baby.'

- Every single moment of the Baseball Furies chase/fight scene, especially when he encouraged Cowboy to keep running and just accepted it when he couldn't continue, before handing out numerous epic thumpings and throwing one of the best lines of all time in there for good measure.

- Not much to love about his final scene, but he still manages one more good moment when he's beaten, bleeding, handcuffed to a bench but still curses out the cop who's standing over him with a baton. Dude was fearless.


Thanks guys - love to chat with all and any who's willing :)

Peace.

Hey, thanks heaps for the welcome Cochese and Scaley! Can't wait to get into it ;) I don't think this obsession is going anywhere soon. I even bought a baseball bat n ball set the other day, lol. Not to, y'know, paint my face and chase people or anything, but it looked pretty awesome and a bit of fun to smack around the garden.

Anyway. Clearly, I need an outlet. So thanks again :)

You seem like a genuine Warriors fanatic, so welcome to the site. It used to be really
quite happening a few years ago, but IMO is more or less dead now. Still, it's a really
good site, and you can find a wealth of info and knowledge in the archives. Any topic
you ever wanted to discuss is probably in there for the reading.

Cheers

Cheers for the welcome Suburban Warlord. It IS a rad site and obviously a real labour of love. I've been having a lurk around the archives for a little while now, there are some golden moments in there. I loved the '100 things we learned from the Warriors' thread, hilarious, and some great observations, like Ajax giving the Turnbulls the finger as he ran! Makes my movie viewing more enjoyable, for sure.

It is quiet, but I'm here to liven it up a little for you guys :)

Soooo, I take it that kitchen sales are a hot ticket item around these parts??

Btw, any lady fans still lurking about?? I'm yet to meet one of my kind either online or in the 'real' world unfortunately, so I'd love to say hi.

Halloween is just around the corner, so it's a perfect excuse to grab some war paint and run around like a psycho mime.

Thanks man :) that's the plan, cannot wait for Halloween. Think I'll create my own Furies character, once I find me a nice olden-timey baseball uniform.

Oh, sweet! No I didn't realize, thanks 4nik8 :) I've been feeling tempted to commit fanfiction, so that is helpful info.
