I'll be spinning singles until its time to watch some fireworks in the park across street.

Watched THE KILL LIST (2011) which I really liked and found quite spooky at times. I noticed in the reviews people had problems with the last segment, which I had no problem with at all and liked. As a counterpoint to that films violence I watched Lucio Fulci's comedy I MANIACI, with a great Barbara Steele segment.

I was sorry to hear the passing of Richard Matheson and Alan Myers of Devo. Matheson was a writer I felt in love in with early on. His novels. THE INCREDIBLE SHRINKING MAN, I AM LEGEND, and HELL HOUSE his countless amazing short stories and TWILIGHT ZONE scripts and his screenplays for many Corman Poe films were all things I loved growing up. And Devo, well I can always watch or listen to Devo. Seeing their recent tour doing the first albums was a awesome experience.
My piece "Trinians Arise" for the SEARLE IN AMERICA fundraiser put together by Pixar story artist Matt Jones. Matt, who knew Searle, did a very cool thing by surprising me with a personal note from Searle and a champagne cork from the bottle they were drinking that I jokingly (tho seriously hoping) requested, which I've posted earlier but here it is again. I'm honored to be a part of this as Searle has been favorite.

Last night TCM had a killer Mamie Van Doren marathon with a couple I hadn't seen which is great. Apart from Mamie there is the added treat of Vampira (in unfortunately small roles tho her as a beatnik poet in THE BEAT GENERATION is great), Eddie Cochran, Louis Armstrong, Jackie Coogan, John Carradine and others.
