Parking Lot CRACKER

Heavy Metal Parking Lot. Heavy Metal Picnic. Neil Diamond Parking Lot. Hitler's Hat. Ernest Borgnine on the Bus! And that's only a sampling.

If you're not already a fan, get thee to his website(s), his Vimeo channel and his Borgnine on the Bus YouTube channel —a world of wonderful strangeness awaits you.

And if you're lucky enough to be in Los Angeles this weekend, you can catch him in person.

Ladies and gentlemen, filmmaker Jeff Krulik does the cover.

Black Cracker is available NOW; signed copies are available here.
