Just a few quick jots on the ole agenda. As you may have noticed, in the sidebar I'll be taking part in a kind of floating tribute, masterminded by Napalm Seth, dedicated to the only man who could keep his dignity after being associated with that image. The one the only Yaphet Kotto.

This Saturday I'm hosting a screening of The Red Shoes, and so I figured that I'd spend the time between then and now writing about them.
