Calling all NYC Doom Cake victims and perpetrators! 

Friday December 9th I’ll be appearing at the KEVIN GEEKS OUT “Holiday Grab Bag” show to give a live presentation on the subject of this very blog. Join me for clips, slides, and possibly a real live cake. The tickets are $10 — cheap for an entire night of entertainment.

Let’s do this. 

PS: I do have more entries planned for the coming season. But I’ve been super busy planning this Louise Lasser tribute event. That’s right, Mary Hartman herself, live and discussing her amazing body of work. Won’t you please come?

Heads up, doomcakers:

On December 17th we’ll be joined by the inestimable LOUISE LASSER for an evening of clips, commentary, music, and more.

Former wife of Woody Allen, Lasser co-starred in several of Allen’s movies before garnering her own fame as the star of TV’s “Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman,” a show which caused a sensation due to its subversive humor and frank portrayal of adult relationships. Lasser more recently appeared in indie hits such as Requiem for a Dream and Happiness.

Come out, have a drink, say hi! It’s time to meet the lady! Tickets are moving fast, we’ll probably be sold out by week’s end.

Jack and Jill (2011)

Need I say more? Okay, good because I can’t without actually seeing the movie. Suffice to say that something bad happens to the cake, or that the party is ruined somehow. If I’m wrong, I will smear icing on a photo of Adam Sandler and eat it.

Incidentally, Armond White has sunk to new depths of movie criticism in his defense of this movie. Or maybe he really does have microcephaly, as rumored? How sad.
