Okay, some quick updates, I'm catching up. Anyway, last Thursday was the penultimate night in the Vortex Room's "Youth Gone Wild!!!" series (which ends this Thursday with HEAD and FOOTLOOSE). I had many martinis and a few beers (actually trying to be drunk this time, not just relaxed), so I don't remember the movies all that well. But I had a great time, as far as I know.
VILLAGE OF THE GIANTS, I remember teenagers growing huge, thanks to a foamy drink invented by Genius, who was played by a little kid who I think will do big things--Ron Howard.
VALLEY OF THE DOLLS--not to be confused with the Ebert-scripted soft-porno BEYOND THE VALLEY OF THE DOLLS. Hmmm...I remember women. Aspiring actresses. Getting in trouble. Drugs.... I think that's about it.
And that was last Thursday at the Vortex.
