I remember "The Sandlot" for a couple of reasons. First and foremost, if you bought me a beer and asked me if I ever watched it as a kid (this is one of those flicks, by the way, that comes up in normal conversations of nostalgia between two late 20s hipsters, along with "The Goonies"), I'll immediately regail you with the story of how my Grandmother took my sister and I to see it at a theater in Chattanooga during one of those hot summer weeks I was inevetiably sent to spend with her so my mom could catch a break, and how she popped popcorn at home in a kettle and snuck it into the theater in her purse, along with three Cokes we stopped at the gas station to get. It was one of the first times I realized there were suckers in the world, and I was determined not to be one of them!

Interviews with horror hosting luminaries Joe Bob Briggs, Ernie Anderson (Ghoulardi), and tons of others highlight this excellent documentary about the golden age of horror movie hosting. Stay up late and get fat on some soda while you watch this one!

No Mardi Gras parade in your town? Well, come along with me as I make a trip with the ole digital recorder down to Birmingham's first parade in 100+ years! Also, I'm down in the basement waiting out a mid-March rain storm, thinking about Mississippi Burning, slumlords, and Rebecca Black's awesomely bad video, ''Friday''. Party, party, party, yeah!
Here's the video so you can sing-along:

It's the first episode of "Friday Night", a new segment where I invite you to care what I have to say about some great movies that are available on Netflix Instant! Here's how it works: first, watch my intro, then watch the movie (click on the poster to your left to go straight to it!), then come back here to find out what we're watching next week. It's like watching a flick with a guy who leaves when it comes on. Grab a soda n' enjoy.
