Yesterday we spotted Crispin Glover and Courtney Peldon in Chinatown. Are we sure it was Crispin? Well, he was wearing an immaculate black velvet jacket — in the middle of the afternoon. We started feeling all nostalgic for his mad-as-a-hatter days, the days of rat books and Nancy Sinatra covers, and YouTube comes through. From July 1987, it's Crispin Glover making a permanent enemy of David Letterman.
