Pain Pills and Alt Lit Groupies 

Wednesday, Apr 2 2014

At Scene Missing, six writers and comedians share work inspired by movie trailers of films starring Jeff Goldblum. Let that sink in. This is the literary equivalent of talking during the previews. "I was forced to watch a very upsetting film called The Fly, which I naturally took to be a metaphor for cocaine and Goldblum's smoldering sexuality," says Nate Waggoner, who claims to have been blackmailed into doing this reading. "Let's just say it's international and involves rare felines and is not what you'd expect," he says of the plot coercing his performance. Tim Toaster Henderson, Alani Foxall, Ivan Hernandez, and Scott Simpson, who will also be performing, were unavailable for comment, though Sarah Griffin, who will join them, reports: "Nate Waggoner just called me crying and also singing the theme song to Jurassic Park while crying." Clearly, preparation for this event has been taking a toll on Waggoner. "The more of you come... the sooner I will be free from this literary hell-prison," he says.
