Miguel's selfie.

Here's one we found online by "Lou Velvet."

 Another nice one we found online by "Brainkief."

If you were there, you understand the significance of this title frame from Penelope's 35mm print.

 Boba Brett, one of the homeless kids from Decline of Western Civilization part 3, is all grown up and he came out Friday for Suburbia.

Are there any punk rock orthodontists out there??

Thank you to EVERYONE who ventured out during a 99 degree heatwave this week to support our historical Wyrd War "Summer Bummer" with the crowned Queen of Punk Rock Cinema, Ms. Penelope Spheeris! Very special thanks to screenwriters Miguel Tejada-Flores and Randall Jahnson for joining us on stage Thursday night for an illuminating and hilarious panel discussion on the making of Dudes (1987), among many other incredible tangents and ruminations. Thanks to everyone at the Hollywood Theatre for their unwavering support and hospitality. Thanks also to young Baron Fox for editing the short films collection, the Academy Film Archive for the beautiful digital restoration from the original 16mm reels, and the University of North Carolina School of the Arts for loaning us the only known 35mm print of Dudes! Last but certainly not least, thank you to Penelope Spheeris for sharing her personal 35mm print of Suburbia and for making this a weekend we will never forget. I was too busy to take any pics, but luckily "Lou Velvet," "Brainkief," Miguel, Penelope, Baron and Meadow remembered to take a few. Here's something else worth remembering: TOMORROW BELONGS TO US!
