Crappy Cinema Council: Ninjas! Tonight – 8/7

Man I wish I didn’t have to work tonight, otherwise I would be at Public Assembly (70 North 6th St) tonight, first to check out Society For the Advancement of Social Studies’s FREE lecture on Ancient Badasses at 7pm, then at 9pm to laugh my ass off at Crappy Cinema Council’s “tribute to everyone’s favorite silent-but-deadly masters of the shadows: NINJAS. [They’ll] be showing clips with roller-skating ninjas, ninjas that look like Larry Bird, ninja pimps, and tons of other crap, followed by a lineup of stand-up comedy. And it’s all FREE!
