Have You Seen Texas Theatre's Life Aquatic Parody Video?

File this under "Positively Charming."

Texas Theatre shows Wes Anderson's The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou Saturday night, and in proper Texas Theatre style they've filmed a mock doc promo teaser. From the miniature architectural model to the Candy Dungeon, it's extremely satisfying. (Especially with The Midnight Coterie of Sinister Intruders stalled indefinitely in post-production.)

Saturday doubles as a an art auction and birthday party for bartender/dollface/pants-charmer-off-er, Susie Sue. Auction proceeds fund two great causes: Dallas street dog rescue group Duck Team 6 (a favorite non-profit of the birthday girl), and Sue's own stack of medical payments. A major back surgery has kept her from professionally spreading joy since March 2013. Susie Sue is a local treasure, so show up and pitch in. Here's the details.
