Hello! It’s been a while, hasn’t it? I’ll get into the particulars of where I’ve been in another post, but I wanted to share something. I found out from the Scary Social Live Tweet group that today is Tommy Lee Wallace’s birthday. For the past few weekends, I’ve joined them in movie Live Tweet’s on Saturdays at 9pm Eastern. Check them out when you’ve a chance. Most people know Wallace from Halloween III: Season of the Witch, Vampires: Los Muertos and from Stephen King’s IT, with Tim Curry.

The first thing that came to mind on hearing about Wallace’s birthday was the theme song to John Carpenter’s Big Trouble in Little China, back in 1986. Along with his friends Carpenter and Nick Castle (The Last Starfighter), Wallace was part of the Coupe de Villes, a band that made an album in the 80s’. At some point in their lives, both Tommy Lee Wallace and Nick Castle have played Michael Myers in Halloween films. Below is the theme song from Big Trouble in Little China.
