I Have No Mouth And I Must Scream At People Who Wear Their Baseball Caps Backwards

Our own GinRummy put this online and pointed it out to me. It's a video interview that Harlan Ellison did back in 1995, talking about a video game version of "I Have no Mouth and I Must Scream." (Which was, coincidentally, the first Ellison story I ever read back when I was about 13. Scared hell out of me, and I couldn't sleep for two nights afterwards.

Once he gets past talking about the game, there's some interesting stuff about why he doesn't write on a computer, and, of course, I love his bit about "Parent's groups exist only to be alarmed."
What completely sells it, however, is at 8:55 when he comments on baseball caps.
Mad props to GinRummy for unearthing this, and bringing it to my attention.
