Crispin Hellion Glover Is That Dude

Yes, it is a truth in so far as a truth can be defined, that me and BJ went to East Finchley, onetime Land Of The Gods on Thursday night, for to witness mister Crispin Hellion Glover, world famous actor, author and film director, present his "Big Slideshow" (a one hour dramatic narration of eight different profusely illustrated books he has made over the years), and the second part of his "It" trilogy,

It Is Fine! EVERYTHING IS FINE.

Forsooth!

Amazingly, BJ had bought the very last two tickets, and weirdly, the Seats Did Not Stink. We were right in the middle at the back, with no heads blocking our view of the stage and screen, perfectly central. We had a bottle of wine in two big plastic beakers,  and a box of popcorn. I was sat next to Crispin's mother in law, or sister in law, I forget which. Either way, she was a very personable, very cool lady, who kept telling us to watch Hot Tub Timemachine, and had a waterfall of a laugh that sounded like sleigh bells. In front of us sat Luke Haines, who's bald pate was framed by firey twisting locks of hair, and resembled a sunflower, or the head of a child's lion costume.

Crispin's "Big Slideshow" (a one hour dramatic narration of eight different profusely illustrated books he has made over the years) was beautiful, sad, poigniant and occasionally laugh out loud and spill one's wine funny, and well worth the entrance fee in itself.

But the main event was, of course, the movie.

It Is Fine! EVERYTHING IS FINE.

Forsooth!

It was a great movie. Beautiful, sad, poigniant and occasionally laugh out loud and spill one's wine funny, and well worth the entrance fee in itself.

( Crispin's mother in law, or sister in law, I forget which, walked out half way through. "That's quite enough of THAT," she said.)

But that wasn't the end of our entertainment!

Nay. For as you can see from my illegaly aquired photographic evidence, mister Crispin Hellion Glover, world famous actor, author and film director came back out onstage and spent another hour or two answering the audience's many questions, some stupid, some less so. And I'd love to tell you what happened (it was pretty dramatic), but i am afraid i have plane to catch and i must dash RIGHT AWAY!

(Withnot even time for a spellcheck! Crap!)

Pax!
