You know that scene in Jurassic Park where Jeff Goldblum, Laura Dern and that other guy from Jurassic Park are at the Visitor’s Center, learning through an explanatory video how the dinosaurs were able to be cloned? During that video, John Hammond, the happy-go-lucky, we-spared-no-expense CEO of InGen has to interact with a pre-recorded version of himself. It’s delightful. When watching the scene you might think to yourself, “Was John Hammond, the founder of a massive bioengineering company, really planning on standing in the Visitor’s Center and performing those live-action lines with the pre-filmed version of himself over and over for every single tour group that came through the park? ”
You better believe he was. Because he’s John fucking Hammond. He made dinosaurs from a mosquito’s anus. You make any dinosaurs lately? If so, did they come from bug bottoms!? Doubtful.
John Hammond believed in his park so much he was willing stand in that tiny room, day in and day out, repeating the same lines, just so little kids could learn about dino-D.N.A. Also, his beard matched his shirt. Now that’s commitment.
The Neo-Futurists took a page from the John Hammond Handbook™ this week with seven extra-special world premieres, each as fresh and awe-inspiring as a newborn baby velociraptor. Malic, Dan, Kirsten, Leah, Lily and Trevor will be performing them for you all weekend.
Just be sure to hold on to your butts.
