Should I plug things I'm not going to be able to see? There's an argument both ways. But here's go nothing - basically because the press release for this video screening really tickled my fancy:

I know - it just screams out The Hub Review, doesn't it? On the other hand, I personally dig anyone who follows his or her own rules of capitalization, wherever they may lead - and who's not a fan of "genteel video transcendence"? Tonight! "Wesley Willis's Joy Rides" - be there or be square! Rock on, Channel Zero!
