How could I resist? At a stiff $3.15, it’s recession-proof fun!

Meet Alex. He was an NBA scorekeeper. And he’s got some skeletons in his closet.

Excerpt:

“…a little more than a year later, with Nick Van Exel and the Lakers in town, Alex decided to act out. “I was sort of disgruntled,” he says. “I loved the game. I don’t want the numbers to be meaningless, and I felt they were becoming meaningless because of how stats were kept. So I decided, I’m gonna do this totally immature thing and see what happens. It was childish. The Lakers are in town. We’re gonna lose. Fuck it. He’s getting a shitload of assists.” If you were to watch the game today, you’d see some “comically bad assists.” Alex’s fingerprints are all over the box score. He gave Van Exel everything. “Van Exel would pass from the top of the three-point line to someone on the wing who’d hold the ball for five seconds, dribble, then make a move to the basket. Assist, Van Exel.”

No one noticed. From his chair, Alex could hear the legendary broadcaster Chick Hearn calling the game. Van Exel’s having a great game! He’s moving the ball exceptionally well! And in the next day’s writeups, Van Exel was of course the hero. Alex thought, What the fuck?

“This is a bad analogy, but it’s like a husband cheating on a wife in such a way as to guarantee he’s going to be caught,” Alex says. “There’s nothing to justify it. It was stupid. And there were no consequences.” He figured he’d at least get scolded. He wasn’t. In fact, a management guy congratulated him. The game was sure to get on SportsCenter now.

One of the weirdest, most redundant monologues I’ve ever seen. Plan 9 from Outer Space (1959) is one of Edward Wood Jr’s finest productions. Just check out the “special” effects when the pilots see the flying saucer. In 9 parts if you like.

Aliens AND Vampires??

She’s under Ani’s wing at Righteous Babe records now. Really cool voice.

Part 14 of the weird 60’s version of the children’s classic “The Phantom Tollbooth”. Most of the movie is animated.

One of the most beautiful trailers of recent years. Spike Jonze’s “Where The Wild Things Are”, slated for October.

Linda Ronstadt getting a bit too personal with Kermit…and singing her heart out.

Diana Ross the comedienne?
