So fuck it. I accepted a full time position as purchasing agent for a large seafood concern. I'll be expediting purchase orders and invoices for two fish processing plants in Alaska, day in and day out. It's all for the money, which I'll make plenty of, and all I can promise myself is to save it all and use it for nefarious purposes.

Still, I feel defeated.

NELSON SINGS NILSSON - the Stranger, May 16 2007
(Triple Door) Best known for the hit single "Another One Rides the Bus," local hero Harvey Danger returns to his "Sean Nelson" character (the hapless indie-rock everyman introduced through a series of satirical Stranger articles), taking the stage for the second time to celebrate the music of the late, great Harry Nilsson. Last December's performance was a triumph, leaving Danger in a quandary as to how to top himself, but his solution is inspired. Trading his top hat for a cape, he's assembled a full-cast stage re-creation of the rarely screened 1974 film Son of Dracula, the peculiar horror-comedy-musical that starred Nilsson as "Count Downe," the titular vampire.

Found a dumpsterfull of great ephemeral films courtesy of ... check out some I stashed here. Learn about the psychological differences between the sexes, dig a filmstrip on troublemakers ("Hey, let's start a Nazi society! I know where we can get swastika armbands!"), watch construction workers injure themselves and warn yourself against venereal disease.
