Klown Car!

I love monster movies. They make me happy.

One of my favorite monster movies is Killer Klowns From Outer Space. It’s a movie about killer Klowns from outer space. It’s funky and weird and, as I said before, it puts a smile on my face.

A while back I mentioned Killer Klowns From Outer Space in a workshop. By some miracle of the Internet, Mike Martinez is a banjo player. Mike is also a stunt man – and he did stunt work for Killer Klowns From Outer Space!

Mike saw the workshop and sent me an autographed picture of himself on the set of Killer Klowns From Outer Space. I keep the picture over my desk as a reminder of the wonderful way random lives can intersect.

Today I found a video Mike posted showing how he did the Klown car stunt in Killer Klowns From Outer Space.

There are some other cool videos on Mike’s YouTube channel. Here is a demo of his fire stunts.

I love the way the Internet connected me with Mike. I hope I can get out to California someday and make music with him. Maybe a West Coat folk musicians retreat!
