I agree, was memorizing (or maybe it was mezmorizing?).
Ugh, last time I trust auto-correct. And yeah... although now that I check again, it seems to be "mesmerizing". Dammit.
Another local memory...
When the Orpheum last reopened under new management ('99?), they held a huge New Year's Eve bash, with entertainment on both stages and in the hallways until 5 am (when the basement flooded).
One of the many bands/DJ's that night was Knuckel Drager on the Stage Door stage. We got to our places, the room was thick with various types of smoke, and they took the stage.
They had their standard video projection behind them, but something was... different. Instead of 50's-era car races, we got the opening scene to The Muppet Show, with Kermit playing banjo in his swampy home, while Drager hit the surf-metal hard.
Well that was damn amusing, as you might expect. However, about five minutes into it, I noticed the images were changing-- suddenly there were a whole lot more flesh tones to the screen.
Turns out they had (someone correct me if they know otherwise) projected a second video to the screen of some 70's skin flick, with the main actor having a rubber dick on his nose for a prop. Yes, it was used.
Mind you, the Muppet Movie never left the screen.
*whew* Can someone back me up on this, or was it just an odd dream?
