Mark T, the man

A post from Reno Melons on Myspace:

Hi all,

DJ Mahogany here to remind you about the double feature at the Flicker on Saturday night. Gymkata @ 9 pm...Silent Rage @ 10:45 p.m. Video Dance Party around 12:45 a.m. There's no cover and there will be cool trailers either before the movie or between the movie. Please come by, say hello, and help me to spread the word. Thanks in advance as always for your support.


Anyway, the post kinda took me back a couple of years to the Friday film nights Mark used to host at his house. Looking back, those nights at Mark's were some of my favorite experiences in Athens. Mark introduced and reintroduced us to a lot of really fine films from Vice Squad to Cannonball Run to Coffy to Lisa and the Devil to The Jazz Singer to the "beautiful" Showgirls box set to Piranha to a number of others I can't quite place (Death Race 3000?). Add to this the Italian horror nights he hosted somewhere around the summer of 2003...Phenomena, Zombie, Deep Red, The Beyond...Anyway, hopefully Flicker hires Mark to curate some sort of Saturday night film fest every Saturday from here on out...

reno, you need to push them to let you play showgirls at flicker. there would be a sort of apocalyptic weirdness to that.
