As a onetime theatre professional and a longtime lover of the creative arts, I am prone to flights of fancy in which I look for below-the-radar connections between diverse things.
We all do this to some extent. Look at a fluffy cloud in the sky and see a wooly mammoth or an ice cream cone. Listen to a piece of orchestral music and picture a waterfall or fawns in the forest. View an angsty painting by Edvard Munch and hear the music of My Chemical Romance blasting in your inner ear.
Mr. Meyer died in 2004 and we did not know each other, but I think he would have enjoyed eating his critics’ lunch from these feline-festooned appetizer plates after finally earning recognition and kudos from filmmaking’s Big Dogs including Quentin Tarantino who has named Meyer as a major influence.
Here now, for your camp-loving enjoyment, is the trailer for Faster Pussycat! Kill Kill.
And P.S. if you're interested in the plates check them out at Entertaining Vintage.
