"No one knew who they were or -- what they were doing..."

Oh! I so quickly summed up this weekend that I didn't mention that the November Midnight Movie got announced.

It will be one weekend later than usual: Nov. 11th instead of the 4th. So it'll be All Quiet on the Western Front in honor of Armistice Day! A day with 11 in it. And, I'm ashamed to admit, when Cort and Fatboy asked the crowd that had gathered at the Bagdad for John Carpenter's The Thing "11/11/11. What movie has that many 11s in it?" I briefly thought They don't have a thing for Ocean's 11, do they? Of course not:

The November Cort and Fatboy Midnight Movie will be This Is Spinal Tap.

OF COURSE.

This will be my second big-screen viewing of it -- the other time was at the Bagdad, actually, several years ago, I think 2003 or so. And at that point, some 20 years after it was first released, the film still collapsed me. The film is also the reason I almost always -- ALMOST ALWAYS -- spell out "inches" and "feet" instead of using " and '.

Oh, this will be good. That night they're gonna rock you that night...
