GOOBLE GOBBLE! CLICK! – Wasn't until recently that knowledge of Turner Classic Movies' Friday late-nite "Underground" movies series managed to make its way into my barely conscious mind: would that I'd paid attention earlier to those TCM Newsletters that arrive in my email – then I wouldn't have missed the cable channel’s first broadcast of Russ Meyer's legendary exploitation outing, Faster Pussycat, Kill! Kill! (a flick that I'm embarrassed to admit I've never seen). Over at TCM's Underground webpage, they've also included a nifty feature where comic artists Nathan Fox, Troy Nixey and Robert Pope have been invited to add an "extra" scene of footage to flicks like Pussycat, Tod Browning's Freaks and The Unholy Three. (Nixey's additions to Freaks' final attack sequence read like something that might've been printed in the unseen final issue of Last Gasp's Skull Comix.) Pretty cool – and I'm vowing to pay strict attention to the Underground's schedule in 2007 . . .
