  1. I didn’t even know Matt Mahurin was directing. And REM’s ‘Orange Crush,’ all the way back in ’89.

    1. I think so!

      I mean, when she walks off, her hands are empty and there was no continuity-shot of her dumping the manned-sand into her pocket or suchlike.

  2. can anyone help me get in touch with the violent femmes? i wrote a musical based on some of their music… i want to put it on at my school (uc berkeley) next fall.
