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."

Tim Curry can do no wrong, imo. Even in crappy movies, he's wonderful! Because he's Tim Curry! And THEN, when he's in something good, HE'SAMAZINGOHMYGOD-

As he would say: oh absolutely. What I love about this clip is how he commits to the crappiness, thus transcending it with his TimCurry-ness.

So true. His TimCurry-ness makes it so he can rise above - er - giant pink cloaks and bat bow ties. His vocals are actually creepy and weird, which is AWEsomeness!
