Have a Terrible holiday!

This Friday at 7:30 PM the merry pranksters of Everything Is Terrible! will present their latest mash-up of kitschy, embarrassing, and otherwise bizarre video footage at Lincoln Hall. As might be expected, the theme is not the holidays but the "end of days," as the group apparently felt it had to do something for the Mayan apocalypse. (I wonder which scene(s) of Schwarzenneger's End of Days will make it into the stew.) The gang promises plenty of Christmas-related footage too, along with "puppets, sing-a-longs, candy, fake snow, and a visit from the big man himself."

It's been a big year for the local video-art collective. In January several members embarked on a nationwide tour to promote its latest feature-length DVD just as YouTube took down the group's channels in response to a copyright infringement claim. This fall the Everything Is Terrible! live show made its debut in Ireland (via Skype) before touring the U.S. again; and throughout the year, the group presented midnight movies at the Music Box and the Logan Theatre. At present some members have begun work (with a few writers and crew people from the IFC show Food Party) on a new project called Channel 2020, which purports to "take you to the not-too-distant future and show you the real faces of the reptilian overlords who are responsible for nearly every aspect of our daily lives."
