After work, I met Carole & Atri for dinner at the Thai-ger Room where I had thai-ger noodles, as always. On the way, I did catch the beginning of John Edwards's [ed: we insist on this usage since Edwards is neither Biblical nor Classical] (apparently long, but on time) speech [txt, video]. In case you hadn't heard, John Kerry was in the Vietnam War and he pulled a guy out of the water. Using the same words as in his television commercial, Edwards reminded the audience of this often overlooked detail from the Kerry personal history. Oh, and John Edwards is the son of a mill worker.
Dinner was the prelude to the main entertainment: the So Bad It's Good Showgirls, which was released in VIP DVD format yesterday. David Schmader provided commentary (which is on the new DVD for those unable to attend / if this is actually his "last" performance.) The movie is outrageously bad in every regard, which makes it incredibly funny. Had even one aspect of it been decent, it would lose its magic.
