Too Bad Weenie, That's Your Hot Dog Hand...

Connoisseurs of the immutable will recognize this post's title from Prime Cut, Michael Ritchie's peerless '72 mob freakathon. Perfect for 3:01 AM, which is what it is now. Lee Marvin, Gene Hackman, Sissy Spacek, Gregory Walcott (amazing as Weenie, slightly more animated here than in Plan 9 from Outer Space), and Angel Tompkins... A film this acidic couldn't possibly be financed today, and we're all the poorer for it.



(If you've never seen this titanic lil' flicker, race your lame ass over to Amazon/your local non-retard retailer and scoop it up FAST.)

Anyhow, I made it back from Florida. Unbelievably fucking foul out, high 90s, miserable... Must have listened to Noon a dozen times during the round trip. To my mind, the beta version's about 99% there. AWK phoned on Saturday; he should have v0.9b ready by the end of the week.

More Later,

Tom
