veruca salt did not turn into a blueberry!

  1. in order to correct the willy wonka error in the closed egg-hair thread:

    violet beauregard turned into a blueberry -- "violet! you're turning violet!" veruca salt was determined to be a bad egg and was dropped down a chute towards the incinerators.

  2. After she did not turn into a blueberry she had a pretty major hit with "Seether" off the album "American Thighs." The followup "Eight Arms To Hold You" did not fare quite as well.

    Actually, thanks for setting everyone straight, I mix them up myself. Two snooty, snotty bad little girls gone...
  3. Veruca and Augustus had to of died, right? I mean, Mike Teevee may have been the size of a pencil, but he's still alive, and violet being a gigantic blueberry.
  4. Augustus got out when the pressure got too strong and was sucked right out. Veruca just went down the bad egg chute- she probably got covered in goose-egg! Mike *MAY* have been killed because he was going to get put in the taffy pulling machines! For all we know, violet still is a giant blueberry.

    Too bad, because Eight Arms was the better album IMHO
  11. What was the "hit" off that one? I vaguely remember it.

    I agree.
    I saw them live and they rocked. Great band.

    that movie severely disturbed me. they never bother to show you the kids being in decent shape after their punishments. there is only the occasional passing remark by wonka.

    and to think that adults force children to watch that movie. "if ya don't sit down and shut up, it's to the incinerator ya go, kid!"
  14. the lead single on "eight arms to hold you" was "volcano girls"

  15. though the movie is content to leave the children's fates unsaid, the book provides the details, most of which i don't recall particularly well. none of them died, though. mike teevee was stretched thin like bill cosby's old weird harold; violet was juiced but never had her color restored; i don't recall what happened to everyone else, but it's in the book.

    You know, as a kid I was going to watch that movie but after about 5 minutes a thought "what a crappy movie" and went out to play wiffle ball. As an adult, after having so many people shocked to hear that I'd never seen Willie Wonka, I decided to sit through it with my kids. After about 5 minutes I thought "what a giant peice of crap..." and started wishing I had a wiffle ball. :meh:

    fwiw, a few years ago i went to a music festival in west palm. veruca salt was the opening act.

    ...except it was just a guitar player and a bass player. that was it. no drummer. i think that neither of them were the actual singer for the band, too.

    and it was terrible.

    well of course it would be below par if it wasn't the full band ;)
