This made me smile:
"Christmas on Mars," which stars Coyne and his Lips bandmates Steven Drozd and Michael Ivins, was shot on the cheap in and around the band's native Oklahoma City. It revolves around the first holiday season on the freshly colonized Red Planet; Drozd is Major Sytris, who aims to marshall Christmas cheer with a big pageant, but a series of events threaten the survival of the colonists, much less their holiday plans. Coyne plays a friendly Martian who offers his assistance.
"If you were to watch a David Lynch movie with someone, you'd experience these moments where music, story and abstract bullshit came together," Coyne says by way of comparison. "You'd understand it, but you couldn't explain it to somebody else. It's like an unspeakable language."
And I love this quote:
"Originally it was going to be shown on an outdoor inflatable screen, but then we started getting bits of information like, 'Wayne just bought a circus tent to show the movie,' 'Wayne is making custom popcorn containers' and 'Wayne will be showing up a day early to supervise the set-up of the movie and hand out custom tickets to the crowd,'" [Sasquatch Festival founder Adam Zacks] says. "It just kept getting better and better. Instead of asking, 'Why?,' which is where most people would stop, Wayne asks 'Why not?!'"
In case you haven't seen it, here's the trailer. For all of you parents of wee ones out there, be on the look out for Steve Burns of Blue's Clues fame at around the 2:05 mark:
