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."

I LOVE THE WORST WITCH. That movie was one of my all time favourites as a kid - so much so that I too own that DVD, because when I saw it existed I had to have it. I would watch it over and over as a kid. Re-watching it as an adult, I realise it is a bit insane (but then so is Labyrinth). I had the books too, but I never saw the TV series. And definitely, the first time I read Harry Potter, The Worst Witch came immediately to mind.
