11:43 pm - There May Be a Toad in Your Bass Guitar
After another delightful dinner at Threehaus—chicken chili and cornbread—with Dan (incidentist) and Gabby and Sarah and Jason, I was introduced to the most amazing Tim Curry performance of all time.

For some ungodly reason, in addition to owning Gummi Bears on DVD, Gabby owns The Worst Witch, a terrible made-for-TV movie adaptation of a book about a Hogwarts-esque witches' school. It looks like it was filmed in my backyard. The titular worst witch is played by Fairuza Balk, and the head witch is played by Diana Rigg. Yes, that Diana Rigg. I don't know how this movie exists. It was 1986. In any case, here comes Tim Curry as the Grand Wizard to star in the most awesomely bad Halloween music video ever.

The video does not include his subsequent departure because he has another...gig.

In exchange, I introduced them to "That'll give you bees."

Heh, I read the book that was based on in elementary school, and then was really excited to see that there was a movie on the Disney Channel! Then I watched said movie, and was less than excited. Even at age eight or nine, I knew just how insane that solo was.

has anyone seen my tambourine?

Now that I've watched the video, I would like to comment that while the music is fairly catchy, the lyricist was on crack, as evidenced by the line "from London to Idaho." Er, "Tokyo," anyone? Three syllables, ends in -o, slightly more exotic than the potato state?

Re: has anyone seen my tambourine?

Oh, there are several cracktastic lines. Also note that your teacher could turn into a sardine.
