I'd still own the film rights and be working on the Sequel

Don't forget tonight is Josh's Novelty Adult Spelling Bee at Freddy's Backroom! 8PM.

Evil is his one and only name
I spent a lot of the weekend doing screen printing-related activities for our single. We're about 65% done, but there's still a lot of crap to get done before we can sell our wares in the open market. Last night I passed out some time around 10 PM, but then woke up at 1 AM and could not get back to sleep. I started doing my day job at around 3 AM. I know I've been staying out pretty late on the weekends, but that hasn't kept me from promptly falling asleep at more or less usual times in the past. And I figured after all the fatigue of printing, I wouldn't have any trouble staying asleep. So it must be something else keeping me up nights. It must be THE CAR!

This 1977 horror cult classic predates the relatively tepid Christine by several years and scared the pants off Buzz when he was a lad. One can only assume that its horror index has only increased in the intervening years and now must be among the most frightening films of all time. I mean, it's a CAR, and it's EVIL! As a full-time pedestrian, what could be scarier? Nothing, that's what.

The Car plays for one horrifying night only, next Tuesday at BAM, at 6:50 and 9:15. I'm not sure which show I'll be attending, probably the earlier one since it's more convenient for BAM employees. But I'll keep you posted.

I think it's highly telling that when the now-defunct show Futurama needed a model of an evil car for the episode "The Honking" (wherein Bender the robot becomes cursed to change lycanthropically into a murderous automobile), they had to look no further than this fine piece of American cinema.
