The Year of the Cat – Al Stewart

Hollywood Nights – Bob Seger
In this song, a man goes to California, meets a woman, but she leaves him in the end.
Secret Agent Man - Johnny Rivers
For the ultimate in exotic locations and women, there is the secret agent man.

Mr. Roberts finds himself awoken inexplicably in a white room. A man sits before him at a desk and in between them stands a black button. If Mr Roberts pushes it, he will receive a briefcase filled with millions of dollars. Or he can take the key to the door and leave penniless. The catch? Pushing the button will result in the death of a human being. What would you do?
It's a tough choice. And a good film.

Here are some of the songs from the film. If you want to hear all of the songs, buy the soundtrack. If you want to see the entire movie, get the DVD!
Alternative Science Fiction/Double Feature
I like the original idea for the start better than the lips, since it shows the movies it’s singing about. It gives the idea of the kind of movie this is going to be: part horror, part science fiction, part B movie. :)
Over at the Frankenstein Place
Brad and Janet’s car gets a flat. It’s a dark and stormy night. The place around with a light on has a sign “ENTER AT YOUR OWN RISK!!” So what do they do? Well, it wouldn’t be much of a horror film unless they went in, would it?
There’s a party going on! Strange people, strange customs. And dancing!
Dr. Frank-N-Furter makes his apperance. Later on, since any good Dr. Frankenstein needs his own Frankstein’s monster, he will make one.
Hot Patootie-Bless My Soul
Meatloaf is introduced. He sings a song…and then he dies.
Much craziness ensures. Finally, the servants are tired of it, and announce that they will be returning to the planet Transylvania.
I'm Going Home
Frank is happy to be returning home.
But, Frank isn’t going home. Just the servants are. That's the breaks.
Alternative Science Fiction/Double Feature (Reprise)
We will finish this the same way we started, with the alternative video for the ending credits.

What a good idea: turn a parking space into a park for the day. In San Francisco, the city code does not restrict the use of a parking spot to just cars. Check with your city code before trying this in your city!
REBAR (www.rebargroup.org) sponsored this wonderful all-day reclaimation of parking spots all over the city. Many groups converted what was car storage to wonderful human uses.

This is a mini hands of the latest Xbox Live Marketplace demo, BioShock which was released by 2K Games this August 2007. Played by UKR DreamcastUK, voiced by UKR Show. This is again a "Hands On" and Not a Review , so we will not be commenting throughout the video clip. This is for you to see how the game plays, so we will generally not be playing with full skill, but waiting for the enemies to attack us, and come towards us, to see the physics etc. Again, this is for people to see how the game is played.

This is part of a series of pieces that I am titling "goodbye art" because there is nothing left for me to keep at the end. I make a new piece each week and have a theme; the theme for the month is "Fire" so each piece will involve fire in some way.
Check out his art at www.philinthecircle.com. The music is by Ben Abrahamson.
