Also of note, I look so out of it here because this was the day after the infamous The Wild Life midnight where I got punched in the face by a drunk jerk after we kicked him out.

I just rewatched The Caveman’s Valentine (2001) for the first time since it’s original release. It’s still a strange, ambitious and incredibly stylized thriller from Kasi Lemons, the director of the excellent Eve’s Bayou (1997). Samuel L. Jackson is a homeless paranoid schizophrenia / musical prodigy whose delusions have pushed past the point of madness but may hold the key to solving a murder. It’s messy narratively and the pace is often sluggish but I’d definitely recommend checking it out for an interesting take on the modern thriller.
I remember seeing Dragon Wars in one of their micro auditoriums. A staff member came in mid movie to clean and was incredibly startled to find me there watching the movie. When Jackie & I saw Baby Mama, the film ended and lights came up during the last reel. We tried to find anyone to help but it was a total ghost town. I still have never seen the end of the movie.

The Movie Orgy is so amazing! I think Joe Dante now has a digital copy for screenings but I doubt he’d let the original Frankenstein’d splicework out of the archive again.
The last time I remember Tunnel Vision playing was at Quentin’s Grindhouse festival in 2007 (seen here) and I know The Groove Tube played on a double with Inherent Vice in 2014 (here). It’d be fun to have a stoned out all-nighter of counter culture comedies.
