Jason slips into a Vortex for VILLAGE OF THE GIANTS and VALLEY OF THE DOLLS

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.
