10 years of Flick Filosopher: I go to 11

Writing reviews in character has been a way for me to try to not sound like everyone else reviewing film. My review of This Is Spinal Tap features a me from a slightly alternative universe:

I can’t tell you how excited I was when I learned that This Is Spinal Tap was not only coming to DVD but also getting a new theatrical release, too. I mean, here I am, the biggest Taphead — or Tapgirl, as some of us femme fans like to be called — in the world, and here’s this great blast from my junior high school past. I’m sure I’m not the only one who pissed off a priest or a nun by wearing a Rock ‘n’ Roll Creation tour t-shirt to Confirmation class. I was a little young for that tour, in 1977, of course, but I got the shirt in a 1983 bet with my older cousin — who was actually there for the Madison Square Garden stop when Derek… well, the story is infamous — my cousin lost the bet when he didn’t know, if you can believe it, why Tap’s second keyboardist, Ross MacLochness, left the band.
