Kursaal Flyers’ "Hypochondriac" (1975)
"I’m going to puppet class."

The trailer I cut for Drafthouse Films’ “The Final Member” is on the loose!
You can’t help watch and think “Did Christopher Guest make this?” but it’s a truly fascinating documentary piece that will exceed any and all expectations.
Consumer cord-cutting is a looming threat, not a current reality, but without prospects for growth, cable companies and programmers will continue to robotically raise rates, blaming one another as they go and deepening consumer antipathy that will eventually come home to roost. Netflix would do well in that new world. It already is doing so.
A some-what related read on the modern TV ecosystem and the "Cable Sports Bubble":
"[Cable TV] might be the world’s greatest business model — in what other field do millions of people who neither use nor care about a product still have to pay for it as if they were, you know, customers?”
And that’s exactly why I cut the cord 3 years ago and haven’t looked back.
