Every once in a while here in the Cinefamily (the revival movie theater in Los Angeles of which I’m one of the programmers), capsule we receive an unsolicited piece of…well, “stuff” that we’re at a loss to fully comprehend.
About a week and a half ago, my co-worker Suki answered the office phone, and was puzzled by the person on the other end who wanted to “work with us”, and wanted our mailing address so that he could send us “a unique opportunity.” The fellow didn’t want to describe what he had in mind (of course), so we immediately put it out of our minds the second she was off the phone.
Imagine our surprise when, one week later, a printed-out version of the image below appeared in our physical mailbox, encased inside a PICTURE FRAME.
We’re not entirely sure who on earth this kind of thing would actually work on — the picture-frame-in-the-mail thing, I mean, not the magic trick thing. Dude must’ve spent at least $10 on the framing and mailing it to us, unless he found the frame at a garage sale.
