SAD SPATCH

And we've gone and thrown our back out after the box-moving orgy last night.

On the Good News front, the May/June Brattle schedule looks very promising, and I'm already licking my No. 2 pencil point to write in the days I think I could very well be down in Hahvid for to watch movies. Who wants to come with?

May 19-24 is a Gene Kelly / Fred Astaire extravaganza. SINGIN' IN THE RAIN, ON THE TOWN, ANCHORS AWEIGH, HOLIDAY INN, COVER GIRL, AN AMERICAN IN PARIS, SWING TIME, ZIEGFELD FOLLIES, a whole lot more... holy crap. That's a lotta dancin, boss. I'll be busy on the 20th with the camp reunion, but I'm thinking SINGIN' IN THE RAIN on the 19th at the very least. And AN AMERICAN IN PARIS on Monday the 22nd. And maybe ZIEGFELD FOLLIES on the 25th, before you crazy Gerald kids show up. And maybe maybe and maybe and.

Lotta Ken Russell films afterwards, but honestly, kids, if you've seen LISZTOMANIA once, you don't need to see it again. Even if you're high. I would go for ALTERED STATES, however, that's Memorial Day weekend which means Take The Okay Cool Kids Bowling, Take Them Bowling. Or something. I dunno.

Then! Double feature on Monday 6/5 and Tuesday 6/6, KISS KISS BANG BANG and TRISTRAM SHANDY. Both films are nicely entertaining in their own right, and I'd enjoy the chance to see KISS KISS sober. But it's the 6/9 - 6/11 double feature schedule I am loving. RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK and THE MAN WHO KNEW TOO MUCH. Hot damn says I. Oh and then there's a little matter of BLUE VELVET showing up near the end of the month. Sup Harvey.

In other good news, we just ordered roast beef from some local shoppie and they put real horseradish on my sandwich, not just horseradish-type sauce. My sinuses are cheering.

EDIT: My coworker Special K. also got horseradish on her sandwich at my insistence, and every now and then I am hearing a surprised "Oh!" pop up from her cube. That's goooood horseradish.

First. The LJ haiku generator gave me this which I rather liked, but had to edit by hand to remove a stray syllable:
art doesn't scale down
very well so i can't move
boxes in the rain
Second. I finally nailed this reference, set up for me in all honesty and sincerity!
orionsmom: The fog's getting thicker!
derspatchel: And Leon's getting LAAAARGER!
You have no idea how happy that makes me.

sometimes you just gotta sit back and let the comedy wash over you

You know, reading Internet meme explanations on Wikipedia is a lot like having some jackass with bad breath and something hanging from their nose sit down right in front of your face and adenoidally drone on and on as to why something inexplicable is funny, until it's no longer funny.

OH I GET IT, THE CLIP IS "CONSIDERED" FUNNY DUE TO THE INFINITY AND "UNFAMILIAR" SOUNDS OF FINNISH AND AMUSING CLIP OF AN ANIME GIRL TWIRLING A LEEK, THANKS FOR CLEARING THAT RIGHT UP, CAPTAIN ASPERGERS

Wait, wait, that means it's just like the Simpsons episode guides on SNPP.
