Secret Cinema and secret ballots

Secret Cinema
It’s not very secret if there’s a webpage and a mailing list. But check out Secret Cinema’s Friday night Halloween-grab-bag lineup:

  • The very first Twilight Zone episode from 1959
  • Who’s Out There: a short about the possibility of life on other planets (with Carl Sagan and Orson Welles)
  • The Old House: a vintage haunted house cartoon
  • Weird Women: a 1944 film based on a horror radio program. Lon Chaney, Jr. is a university professor whose career is aided by his wife’s voodoo rites.
  • Other surprises!

All that, and you get to bring your own snacks! Thanks to Sassy J for rounding up the troops.

In completely unrelated news, the soulless office park is currently holding a mock election. We keep running out of ballots, and the office manager keeps printing up new ones, so I suspect that some tomfoolery is afoot. I asked boss-across-the-hall if I could sit in the break room and be a neutral poll monitor, but he said no. Well, don’t come crying to me when the legal department has to come over and sort out the election fraud.

    That Sassy J is just full of ideas. when will she start blogging?

    Sassy J could be a good blogger–she’s got some great stories. Ask her to tell you about the time an African tribal chief tried to make her one of his wives. For real.

    A mock election? What, are you in junior high?

    Ballot stuffing is so passe. If you want some serious election fraud, you should bum rush some of the people before they vote. That way, they’re in the hospital and not voting!

    Good idea. And since I work at a hospital, injuring people at the break room polls would also be good for business–a real win-win!

    Clair, you are just jealous because you work for a faceless international entity. Small companies have all the fun.

    Poll monitor? Ballot stuffing? Injuring people at the polls? Sounds like Becky needs to rise up as the soulless office park’s Party Boss.
