The Hot Club

Obasie visited the HC and I was quizzing him about horror movies as someone told me he was an aficionado. Obasie had just seen Slither with Michael Rooker (of Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer fame). Obasie said the writer of Slither oddly also wrote the scripts for the two Scooby Doo movies.

Obasie said he also liked Troma's Tromeo and Juliet, which he found to be well written. He recalled his brother Bernard's 11th birthday party. He was about 6. They showed Aliens and The Fly (Cronenberg's version). Obasie said that hooked him on horror.

So I directed Obasie to the 10 movies that I suggested for a Halloween horror treat.

Contraire stopped by and seeing Beau asked him, "Are you working?" Beau said he was and Contraire responded, "Are you an imposter?"

Contraire was talking about his trips to Italy. He visited the Vatican in 1975 and then 25 years later in 2000. He said the Holy Doors at St. Peter's were opened only every 50 years but he saw them open in 1975 and then they shortened it to 25 years so they were open again when he visited in 2000. Contraire said that when the Holy Doors are open, every one who walks through them has all their sins absolved. I said, "No wonder you went."

Mr. D., a noted Yankee fan (like Broc and Eben), has hinted he may root for the Dodgers.

Mike K stopped by sans the woman he was entertaining at the HC recently. When I asked him about her, Mike said, "Women are like buses - another new one comes along every five minutes." "And we want to hop on the bus", said I.

Britt agreed that Patti is the Grand Dame of the Hot Club. Britt said she's 4th oldest.

An irregular regular who wears glasses said he was bi-polar. I told him he was bi-focal.

We were talking about the Patriots and the Super Bowl. I recalled going to the first Patriots Super Bowl in 1986 vs. the Bears with Jim Findesen (RIP Jim). We took a charter flight filled with Patriots' fans into New Orleans. As we landed, a flight attendant with a mike told all of us: "Go Pates". That got quite a laugh. Pats not Pates.

Mr. D. says he knows a woman who engaged in 8-minute dating. Mr. D. said that led to 1 minute of sexual congress. And a case of herpes - for life.
