This weekend’s top arts and entertainment picks around town, from the guy who’s paid to pick them:
“Spider-Pig, Spider-Pig …” Complete the verse tonight in Valley View.
Have we told you how much we love The Simpsons Movie
? Especially the part where Homer and his pet pig riff on Spider-Man. Tonight, fans have a chance to sing the very same Spider-Pig song heard in the movie at Cinemark Valley View’s
Spider-Pig Karaoke contest. It happens in the lobby between 6:30 and 10:30.
Long before Stanley Kubrick totally fucked with our heads in 2001: A Space Odyssey
, he made Fear and Desire
, a war movie from 1953. It was his first feature, and he really, really hated it. He called it “inept and pretentious.” Whatever. It’s the launching point of one of cinema ’s greatest directors. The rarely seen film screens at the Cleveland Cinematheque
at 7:30 p.m.
Sunday: Goldmine magazine
targets record-collecting geeks who hate the cold, sterile sounds of CDs. Readers prefer cozying up to their warm, worn vinyl copies of Love’s Forever Changes or some other ‘60s hippie relic. This weekend, the mag brings dozens of vendors to the Rock Hall
for the sixth-annual National Record Show. Expect plenty of LPs, 45s, and even 78s. There’ll also be plenty of CDs there, too, for those of you who prefer cold, sterile sounds. -- Michael Gallucci
