"Why Lie? I Need A Drink" On Late, Late TV
When I was a kid my first experiences staying up really late and getting to know those amazing hours when everyone else was sleeping involved watching tons of really strange television with my older brother Edward.
Did you know there were Blondie and Dagwood movies based on the comic strip? Did you know that Charlie Chan movies rule! From vintage movies and tv shows long forgotten, to strange indie films, to music shows that ran seemingly all night and introduced me to bands, new and old, that I wasn't hearing on the radio, I fell in love with late night/early morning TV. Edward taught me how to cook a hot dog on a fork over the stove quick enough to get it done durring the commerical breaks. The secret was in not worrying about burning it. Hot dogs taste good burnt.This in turn taught me about heart burn and also fork burns. I learned the joy of sleep deprivation and I fell in love with night. It was far too good to sleep through any more. There was a whole world of bizarre culture that wasn't being shoved down my throat but was instead slightly hidden on the other side of bed time waiting for me to find it.
I'm now part of that culture. I hope some kid sees my movie and it blows his mind a little. Most likely though there'll probably just be a lot of "Shit, they sure are gay out there in California." Oh well.
