If I have been informed correctly, today is the 25th anniversary of This is Spinal Tap. The band's official website is currently a countdown clock with about 8 hours to go. I'll certainly be checking back to see what happens when the clock runs out.

I'm not sure if there is any movie that I have seen more or derived more pleasure from.

I should add that I was lucky enough to catch Tap on their "Break Like the Wind Tour" back in nineteen-ninety-something. Quite a show. A 25th Anniversary tour is supposed to be in the works.

[Update: The tour is "Unwigged & Unplugged", Guest, McKean, and Shearer playing Tap & Folksmen songs acoustic.]
