(Oh, yeah, I forgot to mention that this month's issue of Adbusters includes, for no extra charge, a CD of badass music mixed by Spooky. If you like anything good at all, you'll love this. Go get it now. I said now, dammit! G'wan, git!)

So, we just got back from the Alamo Drafthouse, where we watched a shot-for-shot remake of The Raiders of the Lost Ark, made by a bunch of teenage kids in Mississippi, over the course of seven years or so. Afterwards, the filmmakers - who the Drafthouse tracked down, and are now thirty or so - gave a little talk about the film, and did a little Q and A session. It was one of the best things I've seen in a theater in a long time. The guys were friendly and funny, and the video was amazing, in every possible way. It's been circulating as a bootleg tape for a long time, but now they're talking about trying to get showings like this in a bunch of little theaters all over the place, so if you hear that it's going to be playing anywhere near you, drop everything and see it. Stuff like this makes all the crappy things in the world go away.
