Hey, dig this coincidence. Just two days ago, in one sitting, I finally up and read Terry Southern and Mason Hoffenberg's infamous novel Candy, after a couple of decades of meaning to do so, and just now I sees this on the Youtubes!

From one of the most influential writers of the twentieth century, Terry Southern (Screenwriter on Dr. Strangelove, Easy Rider, Candy, and the author of such novels as The Magic Christian and Blue Movie) comes a hard-hitting short script combining the author's satiric eye with his surrealist impulse first published in PLAYBOY in 1967. The Film will make its World Premiere at The Toronto International Film Festival 2007.

(Hm, I was born in 1967, so therefore Terry Southern is attempting to contact me from beyond the grave. His message: "You spend too much time fucking around on YouTube, asshole.")
