I wouldn’t mind Hillman Curtis’s films so much if everyone in them wasn’t trying to act so damn cool. The actors in Hillman Curtis films act like real people acting like the actors they see in Jim Jarmusch films who are actually acting like real people.

Those of you who have been reading The Siren for a while will remember Spinal Tap Tuesday! Where on every Tuesday we would start the day off with a Spinal Tap related post. Well it can be tough to find Spinal Tap related content once a week every week, and Spinal Tap Tuesday became less and less frequent. Well here’s some new stuff!

I think this might be a sign that I should start doing Spinal Tap Tuesday again.

Act fast, there are only 2 days left of bidding.


Here is the “script” for This is Spinal Tap. I hesitate to call it a script since the film was largely improvised and this was written after the production of the film. But, it’s still impressive. Here it is.
