Today’s Lowdown

Do kids these days even know what muppets are? There’s really no scientific way to know since no one can understand what they’re saying. But, this being a low key Sunday, LoCO recommends you, first, take the youngsters out into nature — ‘cuz it’s really horrifyingly nice out — then end your day by freaking your kids out courtesy their first muppet exposure. Where? The Arcata Theatre Lounge is showing The Dark Crystal (1982) tonight which, I promise you, is waaay weirder than you remember. Trailer below. Have funsies!

Godlin Gets Behind

Who rode a dog and was a confederate general during the American Civil War? Robert E Flea. Thank you, I’ll be here all week. Except when I’m at the Flea Market today turning trash into treasure.
