Tom Lehrer is Smug

"I think if fear had a smell, it'd be crab salad. I went into a deli the other day and ordered a crab salad sandwich. The waitress said 'We're out of crab salad... I'm afraid.'"

Holy schnikies, Brattle Theatre. You don't do anything halfway, do you?

The double feature for this Saturday is The Sweet Hereafter followed by Picnic at Hanging Rock. I've seen both, and both are very well done, but my god, I don't think I could fathom watching one right after the other. Talkin about needing serious post-film decompression time here. The Samaritans would do very good business handing out leaflets at the exit. Damn.

But when it comes to next week's double feature of Repo Man and Videodrome, on the other hand, I'm totally there.
