OK, gang; I'm on my fourth viewing of Wasp Woman, and I think now I can offer a few predictions for the evening's riffing by CT next Friday night at Arlington Cinema & Drafthouse:
1. There's a long scene at the very beginning of the movie where the eccentric scientist is capturing wasps to use in his rejuvenation formula experiments; I predict Joel or Josh will riff on this by singing a line or two from Muddy Waters' "King Bee": "I'm a king bee, baby, buzzin' around your hive...!"
2. There's a sequence showing the eccentric scientist in his lab working on the rejuvenation formula, accompanied by incidental music which sounds suspiciously like Frank Zappa's "Uncle Meat Variations"; I predict Trace will throw on a riff where he sings "fuzzy dice and bongos, fuzzy dice...!" from "Uncle Meat" ...kinda' like he and Murphy did during that liturgical dance scene in Hercules And The Captive Women.
3. There's this one character, one of the company's board of directors -- played by the guy who played the doctor in Corman's Not Of This Earth -- who smokes a pipe and wears a bowtie and bears a vague resemblance to Hugh Hefner in his prime. There's a scene where he breaks into the lab in the middle of the night to see what the eccentric scientist is up to; I predict Joel will do one of his classic "resemblance to a famous person riffs" at this point: "Hugh Hefner, no!"
Check out Wasp Woman for yourselves, if you're going to be at the Friday night late show... or, even if you're not:
