|THE TEMPTATION OF CHRIST
FRA ANGELICO, c. 1450
This week’s arts and culture column begins like this:
“Everything Is Terrible” [EIT] is the name of a tongue-in-cheek outfit that collates cringe-worthy clips from 1970s and ’80s TV shows and films and cobbles them together into “documentaries” on various themes.
Or as they put it, EIT “is the internet sensation video collective responsible for some of this millennium’s most intriguing and mind melting videos.”
Recently, one of their shows at downtown LA’s Regent Theater, called “The Great Satan,” caught my eye.
The Regent bills itself as a “vintage 1914 cinema recreated as an indie concert hall & performance space with a bar & pizzeria.”
“Well, I will just venture out with the hipsters,” I thought. “See what’s what with the DTLA ‘art scene.’ ”
