Thursday, January 14TV Tuesday presents The Other Glass Teat: More of Harlan Ellison on Television! – Experience Harlan Ellison’s TV writing with the Cinefamily! From their website:

One of America’s most prolific and dangerous writers, Harlan Ellison radicalized science fiction from the 1960s onwards with swirling, shouting, freaky, psychedelic and sexual visions realized across over 1,700 short stories, novellas, screenplays and essays. That would be enough for most — but Ellison is also one of the great TV writers, responsible for iconic episodes of The Outer Limits and Alfred Hitchcock Presents, to penning the most popular episode of the original Star Trek, and much, much more. And, somewhere in there, he even found the time to write “The Glass Teat”, a seminal work still considered one of the most important and scathing books ever written on the nature of television. Join guest moderator Josh Olson (Oscar-nominated screenwriter of A History of Violence) for a very special evening, as Harlan makes a very rare and highly spirited personal appearance at Cinefamily to discuss his love/hate relationship with TV, followed by a screening of several of his best episodes!

Saturday, January 21LA Accordion Babes Revue – The Accordion Babes Revue is a night of diverse musical revelry celebrating the accordion, featuring Accordion Babe Pinup Calendar girls Mrs. Hobbs of Ketchup Soup, Renee de la Prade, and Amber Lee Baker.
