BREAKING NEWS: CRISPIN GLOVER IS MUCH STRANGER THAN YOU CAN EVER HOPE TO BE
There's good news and there's bad news.
Crispin Glover's new film, "What Is It?" (which had a midnight premiere at the Sundance Film Festival on Thursday), features swastikas, the N-word, a dancing minstrel in blackface (who gets lynched by a mob of retarded people), organ music composed by Satanist Anton LeVey, two kids with Down syndrome having sex in a cemetery, a Shirley Temple look-alike as a Nazi dominatrix, a naked actor with cerebral palsy being pleasured by an African-American woman wearing a monkey mask, a dozen real snails killed (so the minstrel can inject them into his face), plus a soundtrack with original vocals by Charles Manson.
Asked after the screening whether the actors with Down syndrome had liked the film, Glover - who wrote, directed and edited the movie, in addition to appearing in it - replied matter-of-factly, "It isn't for them."
He added: "I've been working on [the film] for over 10 years. It's the first part of a trilogy."
Okay, so I lied about the good news.

STARTING OFF THE NEW YEAR ON THE RIGHT NOTE
The Rev. Gerald M. Horan, superintendent of diocese schools, said that if Catholic beliefs were strictly adhered to, then children whose parents divorced, used birth control or married outside the church would also have to be banned.
"This is the quagmire that the parents' position represents," he said. "It's a slippery slope to go down."
