LIFE IS SHORT, BUT BAD ART IS FOREVER
Everything is terrible all right, and the proof is in the unintentionally awful videos posted on Everything Is Terrible (www.everythingisterrible.com), an online aggregator of vintage VHS gone awry. The site's rediscovered gems from the '70s, '80s and '90s include oddball commercials, ill-conceived instructional videos and new-wave PSAs, plus its own "3-Minute Movies," condensing forgettable films like Freejack and Band of the Hand into attention spanpleasing works of art. Tonight, the evil geniuses behind Everything Is Terrible premiere Everything Is Terrible: The Movie, a DVD compilation of their greatest mockings. Following the DVD party, Fred Olen Ray screens his 1994 B-movie opus, Dinosaur Island, which may seem prime fodder for the Everything Is Terrible crowd, except that, unlike hip-hop fire-safety videos, it's chock-full of topless cavewomen.
