Ho boy. Ok folks, this one is a little different. Patrick took a five day trip to Salem, Massachusetts with his partner Tessa Racked to visit their friends: actress Jess Conger-Henry and theater programmer Nick Henry. He fully intended to spend all five days steeping in the rich history of Salem to return with a 4 hour lecture on witchcraft, witch hunts, the effects of historical tourism on modern day neo-pagan landscape, and the broader sociological and metaphysical implications of polytheistic cultural preservation in Western society.
But then he got fucking sloshed.
Looking back, Patrick can't really tell where one day started, one day ended, and if he actually saw Lon Chaney drinking a Piña colada at Trader Vic's or if he just did Waren Zevon karaoke at a Boston tiki bar. So, instead of a really smart and well-researched discussion, here's something really stupid: Troll 2 (1990).
So Tessa, Jess, Nick, Patrick and a bottle of absinthe all had a smashing time watching Claudio Fragasso's cult classic, a naive and sometimes sweet middle finger to vegetarianism. For kids. We hope you enjoy it! If not, there will be another slightly more sober episode next week, assuming Patrick's hangover subsides.
