Sole of the City 10k, tattoo convention, late night with the devil

What a fantastic day in Baltimore! First thing in the morning, we ran a 10K race through downtown. It was bright and cold. Then, we walked over to the convention center and explored the tattoo convention with my daughter. Lots to look at. It was fun.

This guy has been at most races I’ve done – he runs and juggles. Even during half marathons! I suspect he juggles in his sleep, too.

Finally, we ended our 25 thousand step day with a movie: Late Night with the Devil. It is gloriously set as 1970’s late night TV, and I enjoyed the whole thing. The intro has a recap of late 60’s to early 70’s America, done with a solid 1970’s voice over. It sets the story up in a satisfying way. The filmmakers suggest that what we are going to watch is the original footage coupled with behind the scenes camera work from the Halloween 1977 show.

The premise is that an ailing late night variety show attempts a risky bit of programming on live TV. That was a big draw in the 1970’s.

I made a mental note in the beginning to watch the cuts between the live TV cameras and the backstage, commercial break footage. And I lost track when hell broke lose, which tells me they did a nice job.
