A Way Earlier Than Usual Clue to the New Direction

Having horrible wi-fi AND dial-up problems, so we have to post guerilla-style today.

So -- from 1965, here's the incomparably necrophile Dickey Lee and his hilarious yet morbid tale of Teenagers From Beyond the Grave, "Laurie (Strange Things Happen in This World)."



As always, a coveted PowerPop No-Prize will be awarded to the first reader who gleans the clip's relevance to tomorrow's Weekend Listomania.

And believe me, if you get this one -- you're REALLY good.
