Alright, kids, bow your heads for a moment of silence – Jason Butler and Annie Fitzgerald are indeed moving to Portland in September. We’ll miss ’em, gosh darn it, but it seems that old business must still be attended to before their departure.

As you should know from JB’s interview (see item: 4/22/06), he and Mark Peaslee have been swinging back and forth between two B-movie-ish serials, WEREWOLF CEMETERY and THE ADVENTURES OF THE SCREAMING APE. On Sunday, July 30, 9:30 p.m., in the beer garden of Mike ‘n’ Molly’s, 105 N. Market St., Champaign, the animals will run amuck one more time for the hometown folks. APE: PART 1 kicks off the show, followed by WEREWOLF: EPISODE 2 at 10:00 p.m. and the premiere of APE: PART 2 at 12:30 a.m., topped off by something JB has titled “Last Call” at 1:55 a.m.

To whet your appetite, make sure to check out the trailers for WEREWOLF CEMETERY and the super-secret BrainSmart literary adaptation during the MICRO-FILM Movie Shows this week, also at Mike ‘n’ Molly’s! Both on Sunday, July 23, 9:30 p.m., and Wednesday, July 26, 9:30 p.m., they’ll play before THE UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS VS. A MUMMY and THE MONSTER OF PHANTOM LAKE (see item: 7/17/06). Admission will be $5 each night for the whole monsterific enchilada. Please join us!
