The Hot Club

Alexander the Great seemed enthralled with a young woman. So much so that he was wearing the woman's pocket book around his neck.

Obasi was in the Hot Club with his companion Shiona. I gave him a copy of Sportzine and Shiona said, "Oh you write this. I look forward to reading it." I thanked her.

Later after they left, I asked a couple people if they knew the correct spelling of Shiona. Alexander the Great said he wasn't sure of the spelling but as for Shiona - "It's not fair. She's pretty and bright."

Louisiana Steve was talking about the success of Peyton Manning last year and now Eli Manning this year. Steve said, "Archie Manning's sperm went from being worth zero to millions. Eli and Peyton's too"

300 was playing on the inside bar TV. 5 Angels said, "Sunday night movies at the Hot Club. Get the popcorn." The screen showed a young Spartan in training. 5 Angels said, "They threw kids who were deformed off cliffs." Contraire said, "They do that today."

Amanda said that sometimes patrons are rude and you feel like slapping their faces. But you don't of course. Beau said, "Slap Contraire for us. Slap his head off."

Kate is a horror movie fan. She saw a film with a young Jack Nicholson. "The Terror?", I asked. "Yes." "A horrible movie", I said. Kate told me that she didn't like the Rob Zombie Halloween, but did like his House of a 1000 Corpses and The Devil's Rejects. And we both liked House the best. I suggested she check out Stuart Gordon's Pit and the Pendulum, Roger Corman's Masque of the Red Death, and old classics like Bela Lugosi's Dracula, Lon Chaney, Jr.'s Wolf Man and Invasion of the Body Snatchers ('56).
