You may be correct. I don't have a copy of Smeared with me to listen to, 
but let us not forget that "Median Stip' is based on "Inheirt (sp?) the 
Median Strip" by Laura Boreallis.  I haven't read the book (because it's 
harder than hell to get a copy) so I don't know for sure.  And I always 
thought Fatal Attraction came out in the 80's
